A Thought for Today

I think and feel that most people led to a spiritual path in any of the traditions of witchcraft know somewhere inside them that they are a witch for many, many years before deciding to walk their true spiritual and magickal path. Over the 50 years I have been following my true spiritual path, which has evolved over the years, and mentoring people that it usually starts with a closeness to things in the natural world. It can be a peaceful feeling that only comes when out in a wooded area or with planting something or enjoying hearing and seeing wildlife, ectara.

What was your first inkling that you might be a witch? Remember everyone the word “Witch” covers all sexes. Please share with us whatever you feel comfortable with about your own spiritual and/or magickal path. This will be one of the topics for discussion at our Open Chat for the northern hemisphere on Saturday, May 21, 2022 starting at 6:00 PM CDT and for the southern hemisphere on Sunday, May, 22 2022, starting at 8:00 AM AEST. We will be using a Skype meeting room with everyone typing in what they would like to say. Almost any topic can be open for a discussion. Please read the Gatherings Guidelines before contacting Lady Beltane at for her information to enter the meeting room. Thank you and I really hope to see you there! This event will be held even if only 1 person wants to be part of it.

Until we meet again dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests may you blessed be.

Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful today because you will be tempted to do impulse shopping and spontaneously spend money. “I want that!” This might be a good thing; or it might not be. Save your receipts. (And the box.) Something unexpected could impact your income. Again, it might be positive – or not. Today is a crapshoot.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today the Sun in your sign is lined up with wild, wacky Uranus, which makes you feel impulsive and given to rash actions. Therefore, think twice before you act or speak. If you don’t, you might say or do something that you later regret. On the upside, you’re ready for anything!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will feel restless today. You have that feeling that you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. In fact, something unexpected might occur that takes place behind the scenes — something you least thought could happen. Stay grounded so that you’re ready for anything.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

A friend might do something that surprises you today. Or possibly, your interaction with a group will amaze you or go off in a new direction? Someone might take a stand that you disagree with? The thing is, anything can happen today dealing with friends and groups so, be ready and expect a few surprises.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you feel strongly independent and won’t take kindly to be bossed around or told what to do. This could make your relations with bosses, parents and supervisors a bit touchy. Meanwhile, someone in authority might do something that surprises you. (“Busted!”)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Sudden travel opportunities might fall in your lap today. Or conversely, planned travel might be changed or cancelled. This same unpredictable quality could affect education, something to do with medicine and the law, or issues related to publishing and the media. “It’s a crapshoot!”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Something unexpected might impact the assets that you share with others, or something to do with shared property, inheritances, taxes or debt. Double check everything and make no assumptions. Anything can happen. It could be a boon or a windfall – or the opposite. (Gulp.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

In all likelihood, a friend, partner or spouse will do something that surprises you today. They might throw you a curveball. Perhaps they will suggest more freedom in the relationship? Or they might introduce you to someone who is different or unusual in some way. (It’s not a boring day.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be careful because work-related accidents can take place today. However, you might also see ways to introduce reforms to where you work. Meanwhile, your work routine could be interrupted by staff shortages, power outages, technical problems, machinery breakdowns or something completely unexpected.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Parents, please take note: This is an accident-prone day for your kids. Be vigilant and aware. Meanwhile, social activities will suddenly change. You might receive a surprise invitation? Or social plans might be cancelled. Something unusual could impact a romantic relationship.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You can count on your home routine being interrupted today. For example. small appliances might break down or a minor breakage could occur. Someone unexpected might knock on the door. To be ready for anything – get dressed. And charge your phone. When emergencies occur, you want your phone to rely on.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Be mindful of everything you say and do today because this is an accident-prone day for your sign. Definitely. Be careful driving, jogging, cycling or walking. On the upside, you might suddenly have a genius -like idea? Nevertheless, your daily routine will change. Expect the unexpected.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Tennis champ Andy Murray (1987) shares your birthday today. You are a caring compassionate person. You are outgoing, friendly and opinionated. However, you are also a good listener.

May 6 birthday horoscope for Taurus born on this day predicts that you are delightful, kind but fiery bulls. The typical bull demonstrates willpower as a dominant characteristic. You are one strong person!

These Taurus birthday individuals can display extraordinary shifts of curiosity allowing them to change their minds at any given time. According to the May 6th zodiac analysis, you seek balance and quality.

Your charming mannerisms make it likely that you have the gift of gab and can talk your way out of most situations. Sometimes, you can be guilty of starting those same tacky circumstances. However, the May 6th birthday personality are usually rational people.

Your home reflects a unique flavor as does the way you dress. You are typically attractive and extremely popular bulls.  If today May 6 is your birthday, you love having people over to share their beautiful home with. It’s filled with DIY projects that are functional, fun and creative.

Although a charming personality, you may have another side that is not so bright. Those born on May 6 can be cantankerous individuals when stressed out.

As a chief May 6th birthday characteristic, your charming way, earns you the support of your friends and family members. You are admired, and this quality ensures your role of being the go-to person for emotional needs as well as financial advice.

The May 6 horoscope also predicts that these individuals tend to be close to their mothers. If the mother is absent, then another woman will fill the void. This division could have an impact on future relationships. As a parent born on this day, you will be a great source of inspiration for your children. It’s almost intimidating to have a parent such as yourself.

The May 6 birthday meanings show that you may have the discipline to keep it strictly business with the most alluring distractions. You remain loyal and faithful to your partnerships however conflicting they may be. The horoscope for May 6 suggests that these Taurus birthday individuals fall hard when true love comes to unlock the idyllic gates of this union.

The May 6 zodiac birthday analysis predicts that you are characteristically persistent but patient and perceptive people. Usually not in a rush to make the first gesture, you want the comfort of a stable and secure relationship. Relationships for you last a lifetime.

Long-term romance should balance physical and emotional needs of this Taurean. If the partner is compatible, it should be a romance filled with passion and bliss. A great match for this person is an individual who is equal intellectually and sexually. The only drawback is that the May 6 birthday personality can be selfish.

What your birthday says about you is that you may be late bloomers when it comes to settling on a career. Those born on the 6th of May should set realistic goals for achieving professional success. Helping others rates high on your list of priorities in deciding on job opportunities.

You want people to judge you on your merits rather than having things handed to you because of your looks. Beauty has its privileges, but when it comes to your job, you want to be taken seriously.

Financially you are likely to succumb to your impulses and occasionally allow yourself to purchase some high-end “bargains.” If you could put it on layaway, it would increase your chances of maintaining a faithful budget.

According to the May 6 birthday astrology analysis, health can be of a concern for the bull. Deficiencies can occur when you allow yourselves to experience stress. Otherwise, you normally have a healthy appetite. It is likely that those born on this day, are happy with a limited menu of favorite recipes.

Those family formulas don’t adhere to all of the daily nutritional needs. This could have effects on your immune system making you susceptible to airborne diseases. One of the main reasons to eat right is to obtain a balance of mind and body functions.

As the May 6 birthday zodiac sign is Taurus, you have great determination and curiosity. Sometimes, you can be “messy” but are usually balanced, people. You are often elected the go-to person.

But you can be crabby individuals, especially when experiencing stressful periods. Although healthy, those born today on May 6 could learn to expand their palates. It would make you feel and look better. Wellness starts on the inside.

The Master – Major Arcana number 22

I. The explanation of The Master Osho Zen

The Master Osho Zen is not a teacher for others, but he is a teacher for himself. Every single word and act he makes, it reflects the enlightenment. He neither has any personal purpose nor desire for anything, but always lets thing happens as it should be – there is nothing to strive for. Even though his surrounding disciples are not always beside him, yet they feel his presence and be inspired by his actions.

In his eyes, disciples could find their truth reflected, and in his silence, they could easily immerse themself in their own silence. The master welcomes his disciples which is not because he wants to lead them, but because he has so much to share. Together, they create a great source of energy that could support each individual in search of their own light.

If you could find such a great teacher, you are very blessed. If not, then keep searching. Let’s learn from the preachers, who will be the teacher and then let’s step forward. Like Buddha, Tathagata said, “let’s go! don’t stop! ”. Keep moving forward! Allow yourself to step out of the earthy striving and seek your highest perspective in all things.

II. The Meaning of The Master Osho Zen

Apart from our minds, there is an intrinsic awareness. It is not something the external world could give you. It is also not an idea – and …



The Wave

Keywords: Friends, family, travel.

Meanings: This rune is to do with the your friends and family and their influence upon you. Its meaning is usually derived from the other stones closest to it. This rune is also associated with travel. A journey abroad is indicated especially if the Sun rune is nearby, but a journey for someone close to you if the Moon stone is closest. If it is near to the Rings it foretells a holiday or long distance relationship.

Healing, cleaning, cleansing, catharsis, paring down

Tree: Broom (Cytisus spp.)

Letter: Ng

Like when a fever breaks, broom signifies the end of a struggle and the subsequent ability to clear out the junk to make way for a newer, more positive approach. Walking a way from a bad habit or situation can be painful, but not necessarily so. It may also be gradual. Overall, Ngetal is the importance of getting rid of old junk and baggage (this could be actual clutter or psychological baggage, which of course are intimately linked) or it could mean the resolution of action against someone who has wronged you, whether it is forgiveness or cutting and clearing them out of your life. If it is forgiveness, Ngetal suggests it is coming from a genuine place of inner peace. Apologizing does not necessarily make you an apologist.

There is a process of analysis and reflection that eventually distances anger and enables you to feel it without being puppeted by it. Letting go of attachments that aren’t healthy, for instance, an obsession with being liked for the way you look, will help you develop in ways that fulfill your purpose in this life. Ngetal could signify you are beginning to release anxieties about what you have no control over, which will go a long way in healing your spirit.

Questions when you draw Ngetal: …

Six, among the numbers of the numerological core, is self-denial, bordering on self-sacrifice, willingness to serve as a priest to a god; this is dedication, loyalty and honesty inherent to the knights of yore and the followers of Mother Teresa. Influence of Six can make your life a real penance. People of your type can be found among the members of the World Health Organization assisting the sick and the hungry in the Third World. They believe their actions to be the greatest blessing possible.

Positive qualities

The main virtue of the Six is true humanism and truly cordial attitude towards people. You can be a liquidator working for the government, or even a tax inspector, but, at the same time, stick to your ideas that human life is sacred, and the right of freedom of expression is undeniable.

Seriously, you are a really kind and sympathetic person capable of giving away your last possession to those who need it most. Your loved ones know that you are the person they can count on, always and everywhere.

Negative qualities

Weaknesses of the Six are, in most cases, their virtues that got out of control. Defending a friend, you can be cruel and merciless to an enemy. Your willingness to sacrifice your own interests for the sake of others may give rise to the desire for martyrdom, which is pride. The same is true about your confidence in the aptness of everything you are doing.

The latter can cause serious conflicts with the nearest and dearest. Ignoring all reasonable arguments, you can drive others crazy proving to them that you are interfering in their life and destroy their plans with the best of motives.

NGC 3572 and the Southern Tadpoles

Image Credit & Copyright: Carlos Taylor

Explanation: This cosmic skyscape features glowing gas and dark dust clouds along side the young stars of NGC 3572. A beautiful emission nebula and star cluster it sails far southern skies within the nautical constellation Carina. Stars from NGC 3572 are toward top center in the telescopic frame that would measure about 100 light-years across at the cluster’s estimated distance of 9,000 light-years. The visible interstellar gas and dust is part of the star cluster’s natal molecular cloud. Dense streamers of material within the nebula, eroded by stellar winds and radiation, clearly trail away from the energetic young stars. They are likely sites of ongoing star formation with shapes reminiscent of the Tadpoles of IC 410 better known to northern skygazers. In the coming tens to hundreds of millions of years, gas and stars in the cluster will be dispersed though, by gravitational tides and by violent supernova explosions that end the short lives of the massive cluster stars.
