Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Libra.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today the Moon is opposite your sign building to the Full Moon tomorrow. This could trigger tensions between you and close friends and partners. Fortunately, although problems increase as every Full Moon approaches – after it peaks, they diminish or disappear.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

As we approach tomorrow’s Full Moon, you might find it increasingly difficult dealing with coworkers. You might also be at odds with someone about a pet. Or you might feel increasing concerns about your health. This will all fade by Sunday.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Romantic partners must be patient with each other today; and likewise, parents must be patient with their kids because there is a buildup of energy happening today before tomorrow’s Full Moon that can create anxiety in everyone. Stay chill.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The Moon is your ruler, which means you definitely feel the Full Moon. Tomorrow’s Full Moon will be a bit challenging because it is at odds with your sign. After it peaks, things will be easier. But in the meantime, today, be patient with others, especially parents and bosses and authority figures.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be careful today because this is an accident-prone day for you. We’re talking physical accidents as well as verbal accidents. (“Did I just say that?”) Therefore, go slowly and think before you say or do anything. Be cautious.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you might find that financial matters are coming to a head. It could create a bit of angst for you. It’s encouraging to know that after the Full Moon peaks tomorrow, these problems will diminish and possibly, even disappear! (This includes worrying about dealing with something that you own.) Relax.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Tomorrow the only Full Moon in your sign all year will take place, which is why you feel some buildup of energy or anxiety within you today. (It’s simply heightened emotions.) Therefore, do what you can to remain calm and grounded. By Sunday, everything will feel much better.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today you have to be patient with coworkers, as well as yourself, because of the buildup of energy before tomorrow’s Full Moon. This buildup of energy might create a situation dealing with a pet, or perhaps something related to your health. Everything will improve after the Full Moon peaks tomorrow.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Parents should know that this is a mildly accident-prone day for their kids so please keep an eye on them. That’s because there is a buildup of energy today before tomorrow’s Full Moon. You might sense that people are over animated in social situations. Easy does it.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Tomorrow the Full Moon will take place at the top of your chart. This is the only time all year this can happen. This is why today you might have difficulty dealing with bosses, parents, teachers and the police. Everything is a bit tense. Relax. Go with the flow. Things will be much better by Sunday.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Pay attention to everything you say and do because today is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign due to the buildup of the energy before tomorrow’s Full Moon. Do not be hasty. Think twice before endorsing unusual belief systems and theories. Before you agree to what someone else believes, do your own thinking or research about the subject.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Financial matters might be challenging today, especially regarding other people’s money or the responsibility you have for someone else. (This includes wills, inheritances, bills, taxes and shared property.) By Sunday, you will have more clarity in these issues – one hopes.

IF YOU ARE BORN ON APRIL 15, you are an intelligent Aries but can be impulsive. Your wisdom comes from yours or someone else’s experiences, trials, and errors. You have the ability to learn from observation. Your perception of the world is usually practical and levelheaded.

What the 15 April birthday horoscope says about you is that you can be a hot mess sometimes, Aries. Yes, you get angry and you do not care who knows it or who sees you act out.

To say the least, you are hot-headed and headstrong. Is this typical of a Ram or what? Arians may give the impression of being a timid person, but that is a common misconception.

You do not have to put up a front with those that love you! Everyone respects your independence and knows that you are relatively uncomplicated deep down.

The April 15th birthday personality may have many skills and talents that have gone unnoticed and untouched. Those born on this day perhaps would benefit from realizing and cultivating those gifts. You certainly have the energy for it.

If today is your birthday, you understand and appreciate the needs of others largely because of your upbringing. You as an Arian, deal with situations rather than complain about things you cannot control.

You are likely to choose your battles carefully eliminating the small and insignificant disruptions. As a parent, those born on this zodiac birthday, are likely to be fair but a bit too generous with your children. Discipline is not your strong suit. Your focus is on making their lives brighter. You could be guilty of spoiling your children.

The 15 April birthday analysis shows that you want love and companionship. The perfect or ideal partner for you is one who has the same qualities as you. The rapport would hopefully be one that is filled with enthusiasm for romance and love. You like someone who is not afraid of being the aggressive one.

Now, once you have found this incredible person, do not damage it by your tendency for unwarranted jealousy. That is only insecurity and you have no justification for it. Just as you adore your freedom, so will your like-minded partner. What is good for the goose, has to be good for the gander.

This Aries birthday person being bold is capable of solving any obstacles. You tackle problems head-on and with surety. It is a pleasure to work with those born on this day. Aries, you are creative and are capable of working as a harmonious team member.

The 15 April birthday meanings show that you have leadership qualities and generally have good public standing. Some of you are interested in technology, research or something scientific.

There is a potential for work in the electronics field. If you are interested in adventure, the military is where you should be. You could easily be assigned to various departments of law enforcement.

Most of you with an April 15th birthday are lucky in money. You are fortunate, Aries, not to have any money concerns. Typically, the 15 April birthday personality is concerned with financial security. But before making any final decisions, you are likely to want the approval of your family or closest friends. Whatever you decide, you will find gratification and organization.

If today is your birthday, you rarely have health problems. You have a healthy appetite as you eat constantly but hardly gain a pound. It takes a commitment to exercise. But you will be able to continue to have good health long after your retirement years.

Some born on this day, however, are subject to suffer with fatigue. Eat foods that are rich in protein and low in carbohydrates. A good dose of exercise as a routine can ultimately boost your metabolism. So you will have more energy.

The 15 April birthday astrology analysis shows that certain influences can have bearing on your character. Mainly though you represent an Aries who can be quick to react to situations but are capable of solving problems. You were born with leadership talents.

Those born on this day are good in areas of technology and those positions that can provide mystery and action. You may seem complicated but in reality, you are selfless and secretively, you can be a big baby. If you were born on April 15, you are strong-willed, ambitious and adventurous. Aries, you are interesting!

From Moongiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Visit the April 2022 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waxing Gibbous Phase

The Waxing Gibbous on April 15 has an illumination of 98%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On April 15 the Moon is 13.37 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

Viking/Norse Rune

From londonverse.com – Norse/Viking Runes

URUZ VIKING RUNE – MANHOOD

The rune is an indication of the new phase beginning in a person’s life and the termination of the old one. The rune symbolizes the future changes that are yet to happen in the night. It speaks of ending one part of life and how a man goes out of his childhood frame. This means it must be left behind to attain manhood.

Witch’s Rune

From Summer Goddess – Sun

 Sun

Always a good omen, the Sun Rune means something of value is coming your way. You can look forward to taking a bold step, embarking in a new direction.

Some may be carried out of their daily grind by unexpected and fortunate events. Other will be made aware of added responsibility and will have to deal with it.

Expect public promotions and public affairs. Look to be amazed, dazzled or even shocked by scandals. An older person, or person of authority could have the answers you are now seeking.

Accept your position as a mover and shaker of the world. For you, the time is right to head for the spotlight.

Coll

Wisdom, enlightenment, poetry, wholeness

Tree: Hazel (Corylus spp.)

Letter: C

Coll indicates the fruits of the life of the mind. Wisdom is a kind of knowledge quilt, meaning wisdom is many pieces of knowledge sewn together in a beautiful pattern. The wisdom of music is the interplay of a thousand small parts that come together to create a unified expression of sound. The wisdom of history comes from seeing its overarching patterns and how they can predict the future. Wisdom is not just the collection of a bunch of trivia but a deep understanding of how smaller forces become a whole. Plenty of people have knowledge, and they often gain titles for it like “PhD”, yet they have no wisdom. Knowledge can be unstable and in certain instances knowing a vast array of facts and trivia is not useful (it can be the mental equivalent of clutter); wisdom has permanence and transcends time.

Coll means putting the final piece down and solving the puzzle. Good decisions based in deep-rooted experience. Opportunity because of intuitive, adaptable strategy. The ability to live a fuller life because of lessons that originate from experience and the resulting clairvoyance of multiple outcomes.

Drawing Coll represents a bird’s eye view of the situation or era in which you dwell. There is an accumulation of knowledge that has given rise or is in the process to becoming wisdom. Hard work on the mental plane pays off in an easy way with words, the ability to think deeply, or the mastery of a field of study.

Questions to ask when you draw Coll: …

Hexagram Fifty – Seven/57

Sun / The Penetrating Wind

Wind follows upon wind, wandering the earth, penetrating gently but persistently:
The Superior Person expands his influence by reaffirming his decisions and carrying out his promises.

Small, persistent, focused effort brings success.
Seek advice from someone you respect.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

Gentle persuasion is the key in this instance.
Though the words are soft, their speaker must be firm, calm and confident.
Gentle words are worthless if spoken with trepidation.
Wordless influence by example is also effective in this situation.
All persuasion should be almost unfelt, yet consistent and persistent.
Ask for feedback from someone you know to be an effective persuader.

Spell for Today – A Spell to Request Peace in the World

 A Spell to Request Peace in the World

This can be done at any time, there is so much civil strife and uneasiness that people must remember to ask for peace.

Burn jasmine incense and light a blue candle. Chant:

We strive toward Spirit again and again,
With faltering steps, unsure of the way.
Open the gates of enlightenment.
Make for us a new day
Of karmic purpose and goal,
A path to a new Earth soul.

Sit quietly visualizing a blue cloud of healing and peace slowly covering the Earth. If you have a specific area, work on mentally permeating that area with the blue cloud. Send out vibrations of love, understanding, cooperation, and peace. Do not visualize how this is to be done, just that it will. Follow the blue cloud of peace with a pink fog of universal love. Say:

Let there be peace among all lands.
Let there be harmony among all peoples.
Cosmic love enters every heart and mind.
All strife is replaced by peace.
By the powers of the Supreme Creator within me,
It is so!

The Gator-back Rocks of Mars

Image Credit: NASAJPL-CaltechMSSS

Explanation: Wind-sharpened rocks known as ventifacts, cover this broad sloping plain in the foot hills of Mount Sharp, Gale crater, Mars. Dubbed gator-back rocks their rugged, scaly appearance is captured in these digitally stitched Mastcam frames from the Curiosity rover on mission sol 3,415 (March 15, 2022). Driving over gator-back rocks before has resulted in damage to the rover’s wheels, so Curiosity team members decided to turn around and take another path to continue the rover’s climb. Curiosity has been on an ascent of Gale crater’s central 5.5 kilometer high mountain since 2014. As it climbs, it’s been able to study layers shaped by water on Mars billions of years ago.
