Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today except during 9 PM to 11:40 PM PDT. The Moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re focused on money and possessions. This is a good thing because although one doesn’t need to be obsessed about money and possessions, on the other hand, you cannot ignore this reality. Take stock. What are your assets? What do you own?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Right now, the Sun is in your sign, which is a marvellous opportunity that comes once a year and lasts for four weeks. This boosts your energy and improves your luck. It’s the perfect time to go after what you want. Use this opportunity to your advantage!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

If that little voice on your shoulder tells you to lie low and take things easy today – listen to it. You have been ambitious. You have also been friendly with others. Right now, you need to take a breather and pull your act together before you take it on the road.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is an excellent day to think about your long-term goals. Goals can be invaluable. They give you a clearer focus on what’s important. They make future decision-making easier. They give you better control over your future and how it unfolds. And they give you a sense of purpose.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You are still basking in the flattering light of the Sun at the top of your chart. Since this happens only once a year, make the most of this! Bosses, parents and VIPs are impressed with you even if you don’t do anything special. Use this!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You want to get outta Dodge. You need a change of scenery! You want a chance to explore new places, meet new faces and learn new ideas. Therefore, shake things up a little! Go someplace you’ve never been before. Ideas?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You are private about your finances. Many are. (People will discuss their sex life before their salaries.) Stay in touch with important paperwork related to taxes, debt, insurance issues and shared property. Don’t put these papers in a neat pile and forget about them.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a fortunate time because with the Sun opposite your sign, you have more objectivity to observe your closest relationships. (Close friends, spouses and partners.) This objectivity will allow you to see how to improve these relationships. Note: Focus on what you can do – not the other person.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’re gung-ho to accomplish a lot because you have focus, motivation and the energy to follow through on your ideas. This is because the Sun is helping you to work hard now and to get better organized. Use this gift and act on it. What more could you want?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Everything to do with the arts, playful times with children, social outings and sports events will appeal to you now. Quite often, you bury yourself in your work because you have a strong sense of responsibility. Today however, is an excellent time to play. Make plans with a friend.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Some of you are focused more than usual on a parent, perhaps taking care of them or being more involved in their life. Others are happy to cocoon at home today to hide or regenerate because it feels good. (Remember to include some fav snacks.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Errands, appointments, short trips plus reading and studying are some of the reasons you’re so busy! Just accept the fact that your pace has accelerated with these increased demands on your time. This is how things are rolling. Get cracking!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress, pianist, martial artist Jadyn Wong (1985) shares your birthday today. You are tenacious. Once you have made a decision, you stick with it. Furthermore, you will give it your all. You are also a loyal friend. This year is a time of hard work and construction – both literally in a physical sense, as well as internally, by creating structure in your inner world.

MAY 11 birthday horoscope predicts that you are exceptionally smart and talented, and demand respect. If nurtured, these Taurus birthday people have a huge potential for success. You will excel at anything that you put your mind too.

These Taureans are smart bulls and want to pass their experiences down to their kids and other family members. Usually, those born on this day are close to their parents but even that relationship can have its difficult moments.

The May 11 birthday personality are likely to mingle with like-minded professionals. However, they are devoted to their friends. Sovereignty is vital to this zodiac birthday. Therefore maintaining close relationships or friendships is not a priority of the bull. You are most conscientious when someone else‘s needs must be considered.

This birthday characteristic can cause friction amongst associates and lovers. When it is all said, you may suffer disappointments in love. On the other hand, when you fall in love, it can be one intense love affair.

The May 11 birthday astrology analysis predicts that you are typically attractive, smart and interesting bulls. You love to laugh and share a good joke or two. In love relationships, you can come off as being wishy-washy or indecisive, but really, you are just cautious. The Taurus’ born on this birthday can be short-tempered and show signs of being somewhat unstable.

If today May 11 is your birthday, you typically will walk away from confrontation. You are likely to be a jealous partner but aim to please your partner, so the ill feelings are short-lived. You characteristically have hopes for committing to your one and only soul mate.

The May 11 horoscope meanings suggest that you are creative and emotional people who would make great scriptwriters or some type of performing artist. You have the potential to make an uncertain amount of money but may need to leave your checkbook at home sometimes. Some of you are likely to be shopaholics.

The May 11th horoscope predicts that you are likely to involve yourself in some precarious ventures. As the May 11 zodiac sign is Taurus, a career you choose will need to provide diversity and a measurable amount of opportunities for climbing the ladder.

You dream of living the good life, the life of a star. It takes a lot to handle the pressures of a rich lifestyle, but you believe in your abilities and depend on your morals to keep you grounded. You prefer to work at your own pace. You will not be pushed into anything that you don’t want to do.

Typically, the Taurus natives born today are earthy beings. The May 11 Taurus birthday people enjoy an organic regime of eating healthy and wholesome living. You can take extreme measures to being fit. You find that combining yoga, meditation, and fasting can be useful and have both psychic and corporeal benefits.

If your birthday is May 11, you are a Taurus who has great potential for greatness. This could find you in the entertainment field perhaps writing for a sitcom or on stage performing. When this famous bull comes out to socialize, it is to improve their financial or personal position.

The May 11 birthday personality gets a sour taste in their mouth when they come across bad behavior. You do not go in for all that drama but instead, treasure your freedom and peace of mind. You are generous and loving parents. Sometimes, you can be excitable, but meditation and yoga sessions should be of benefit to both the mind and body.

From Moongiant.com

Today and tonight the Moon will be in 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 May 2022 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waxing Gibbous Phase

On May 11 the Moon is 9.75 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.

King of Rainbows – A Minor Arcana Court Card

I. The Explanation of King of Rainbows Osho Zen Tarot

This Dynosius-like figure is a man who is a “Zorba Buddha” who drinks wine, dances on the beach, and sings in the rain while enjoying the depths of understanding and wisdom that belong to the sage. He holds a lotus flower in one hand, showing that he respects and contains within himself the grace of the feminine. His exposed chest (wide-open heart) and relaxed stomach indicate that he is also comfortable with his masculine as well, extremely liberal.

The four elements of earth, fire, water, and air all converge on King of Rainbows Osho Zen, who is sitting on the book of the wisdom of life.

If you are female, King of Rainbows will bring masculine energy to support your life, along with your existing partner. For males, this card represents a time to break the conventional stereotype for men and to make mankind’s fullness uplifted.

Norse – Viking Rune

From londonverse.com – Norse/Viking Runes

OTHILA

THE SEPARATION FROM THE PAST

This rune represents the need for a change in life, like letting go of the old skin and moving ahead in achieving one’s goal. It can be incorporated into life events, be it a past relationship or move ahead with something new, which is good. Release yourself from the experience you have obtained. Obedience is a necessary virtue people need to have while pulling out this Norse rune.

Besides, it also represents profit and gain. But one must learn to benefit from the provided things and remain obedient and modest.

Witch’s Rune

From psychic-revelation.com

The Birds

Keywords: Unexpected news, change.

Meanings: The Birds Rune means some unexpected news that may alter your life completely. Especially if this is the leading rune. Generally the news will lead to a positive change but pay close attention to the nearest runes to determine its nature. It can also mean news of riends or family that you haven’t had contact with in quite a while. Letters and documents should be watched for as they may well bring happiness.

Ogham

From Learn Religions

F is for Fearn or Fern, which is associated with the Alder tree. The Alder is representative of the evolving spirit. Connected with the month of March and the spring equinox, Alder is the symbol of Bran in Celtic mythology. In The Mabinogion, Bran laid himself across a river as a bridge so that others might cross–likewise, the Alder bridges that magical space between earth and the heavens. It is also associated with oracular powers–Bran’s head was an oracle in legend.

Alders are often found in swampy, boggy areas, and conveniently, their wood doesn’t rot when it gets wet. In fact, if left to soak in water, it becomes hardened. This came in handy when early Britons were building strongholds in bogs. The city of Venice, Italy, was originally built upon piles of Alder wood. Once it’s dry, though, Alder tends to be less than durable.

Fearn Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Keep in mind that you are an individual… but so is everyone else. When you look at someone, see the unusual which makes them themselves–and allow them to see that uniqueness in you. Be a mediator, a bridge, between people who may be having a disagreement.

Magical Aspects: Follow your instinct. Others will turn to you for advice and counsel during spiritual disagreements, and it’s your job to be the mediator and voice of reason.

Spell for Today – Home Protection Powder: A Simple Spell Recipe

Whether you just moved into a new home or you’ve been living in your home for a while, it is always a good idea to cast a protection spell over your space. This process doesn’t have to be elaborate or complicated. In fact, it generally involves about two steps: cleansing the space and then protecting it. Any other steps in the process are entirely optional and can add to the potency of your spell. If you are in search of a simple protection spell for your home, be sure to read this post to the very end!

Why bother about the energy of your home?

Believe it or not, the energy of your home can have an effect on your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. This energy usually accumulates over time, but certain factors can play a role in how quickly unpleasant energy settles into your spaces. For example, if you spend a lot of time in emotionally charged situations during the day, you may end up bringing some unpleasant energy home with you. This energy may accumulate faster than if you spent your days in more pleasant or neutral situations. Surrounding yourself with unpleasant energies could lead you to feeling drained, grouchy, and generally not spiritually well in your own home.

Energy can also accumulate due to other people in your life. This includes people you let into your home such as family, friends, and even employees, and people that don’t come into your home but still send their energy in your direction. Putting up a magical protective barrier around your home can help to protect against physical damage such as break-ins, storms, or similar. It can also help protect your home against magical or psychic attacks from others or keep a wandering spirit from making itself too comfortable.

Clearing your home of unpleasant energies and protecting it from external energetic forces is very simple. Keep reading for some tips to get you started.

May 11 Astronomy Picture of the Day

Discover the cosmos! Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.

2022 May 11

Astronomers think that in the future the “Cheshire Cat” group will become what is known as a fossil group, a gathering of galaxies that contains one giant elliptical galaxy and other much smaller, fainter ones. Today, researchers know each “eye” galaxy is the brightest member of its own group of galaxies and these two groups are racing toward one another at over 300,000 miles per hour. Data from Chandra (purple), which has been combined with optical data from Hubble, show hot gas that has been heated to millions of degrees, which is evidence that the galaxy groups are slamming into one another. Chandra’s X-ray data also reveal that the left “eye” of the Cheshire Cat group contains an actively feeding supermassive black hole at the center of the galaxy.

Gravity’s Grin

Image Credit: X-ray – NASA / CXC / J. Irwin et al. ; Optical – NASA/STScI

Explanation: Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity, published over 100 years ago, predicted the phenomenon of gravitational lensing. And that’s what gives these distant galaxies such a whimsical appearance, seen through the looking glass of X-ray and optical image data from the Chandra and Hubble space telescopes. Nicknamed the Cheshire Cat galaxy group, the group’s two large elliptical galaxies are suggestively framed by arcs. The arcs are optical images of distant background galaxies lensed by the foreground group’s total distribution of gravitational mass. Of course, that gravitational mass is dominated by dark matter. The two large elliptical “eye” galaxies represent the brightest members of their own galaxy groups which are merging. Their relative collisional speed of nearly 1,350 kilometers/second heats gas to millions of degrees producing the X-ray glow shown in purple hues. Curiouser about galaxy group mergers? The Cheshire Cat group grins in the constellation Ursa Major, some 4.6 billion light-years away.

May 2022 – Gardening by the Moon, Biodynamic Planting Guide

From Astro-Seek.com

Please read this first:

1) Moon Phase x Moon Zodiac Sign:

Please keep in mind, that Gardening by Moon Phase and Gardening by Moon Zodiac Sign are two different/independent biodynamic systems and they might give you different or contradictiory gardening recommendations.

  • a) Each Moon Phase (except Full Moon and New Moon) lasts about 1 week
  • b) Each Moon Zodiac Sign lasts about 2.5 days

Try to experiment with these two systems to find which recommendations suits you the most.

2) Tropical (Astrological) x Sidereal (Astronomical) Zodiac:
(1-2 days difference in Leaf, Fruit, Root and Flower days)

There are two different zodiacs for determining the Moon Sign:

  • a) Tropical zodiac (Astrological) is based on the seasons – Vernal Equinox is fixed as 0° Aries (The 1st Fruit day)
  • b) Sidereal zodiac (Astronomical) takes into account Precession of Equinoxes and shifts 0° Aries back by cca 1-2 days. Maria Thun who was an authority on biodynamics was using this Sidereal zodiac

Try to experiment also with these two zodiac systems to find which system suits you better.

Mercury has super long, glowing tail

Mercury has a glowing dragon tail of sodium atoms that is more than seven times longer than ever suspected, scientists report.

New measurements of Mercury’s yellow-orange tail, which streams in the solar wind like the long tail of a kite, put it at more than 100 times the radius of the planet itself.

The neutral sodium atoms that make up the 2.5 million kilometre-long streamer are thought to be blasted off the surface by the sun and micro-meteor impacts. These impart enough energy to launch the atoms into space.

Other elements are also in the tail. But it’s the sodium that lights up and can be detected.

“This [sodium] ion is the ‘little atom that could’,” says Mercury researcher Dr Ann Sprague of the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

It scatters photons like crazy, making it a great clue to various processes at work on and around the planet.

Shorter tail spotted before

Mercury’s tail has been spotted before, but scientists missed its great length as they were looking at too small a piece of the sky, says researcher Jeffrey Baumgardner of Boston University.

Baumgardner is the lead author of a report on Mercury’s sodium tail in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

“Our forte was wide-angle imaging,” Baumgardner says.

His team created an 8°-wide image using a telescope at McDonald Observatory in Texas that’s about 16 full-moons wide.

The actual 2° sodium tail is as long as four full moons.

In the image Mercury is blocked out because its brightness outshines the sodium tail. If Mercury were shown to scale in the image, it would be less than a pixel in diameter.

“But even so, you are limited by the sodium in Earth’s atmosphere,” says Baumgardner.

Earth’s own sodium glow is itself created by the steady supply of meteors that burn up in the atmosphere, he says.

Two sodium hot spots

To better understand how Mercury’s tail is created, Baumgardner’s team also made close-up sodium-glow images of Mercury. This revealed that the planet has two sodium hot spots, both at high latitudes.

These could be the product of the planet’s mineralogy, topography or have something to do with how the planet’s magnetic field channels in particles from the sun.

That’s similar to how Earth does the same thing and creates aurora light shows near the poles.

The secrets of these hotspots are likely to be revealed by the Messenger spacecraft, says Sprague.

Messenger made a close fly-by of the planet in January and is scheduled to settle into orbit in March 2011.

A large part of Messenger’s mission will be to map out the mineral composition of the swiftly moving planet.

Other planets have tails too

Mercury is not the only heavenly body with a sodium tail, Baumgardner says.

Neutral sodium is also seen streaming from our moon and forming a haze around Jupiter from the sodium blasted off of its tiny and hyper-volcanic moon Io.

It’s also seen blowing from comets.

Because tails are associated with rocky bodies in our solar system, they could some day help planet hunters identify rocky worlds orbiting other stars, says Sprague.

“It’s a stepping stone to understanding other planets,” he says.
