Today’s Word is

We use the word frou-frou to describe the sound made by a woman’s clothing. In most cases, the frou-frou sound refers to the sound a ruffling dress makes as a woman is walking. As a noun, we also use frou-frou to describe frilly ornamentation and embellishments added to clothing.

We see a person wearing frou-frou clothing as annoyingly overdressed and unnecessarily flamboyant. Their over-the-top clothing style makes frou-frou dressers the butt of many fashion-related jokes.

In a Sentence

She disturbed the church service by walking in late wearing a frou-frou dress.

Please dress casually. None of that “frou-frou” excess is required for the occasion.

Her ruffled “frou-frou” dress made a loud swooshing sound when she walked by.


We see the first use of the word “frou-frou” introduced in the late 18th-century. “Frou-frou” is a French word that came about in a …

Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Because of the possibility of transportation delays, missed buses and auto breakdowns (to name a few reasons for hang ups today) – be smart and give yourself extra time so that you have wiggle room to deal with the unexpected. You’ll be glad you did.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Double check financial dealings in case there are errors that will create future delays. If you’re looking for a job, go back to where you have applied or worked before because contacts from the past will be your best option. Cheques in the mail are late.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Don’t be hard on yourself for forgetting things, leaving things behind, missing appointments or running late because these are par for the course when Mercury retrograde is taking place in your sign. Lighten up! Enjoy your day. This is just a brief dark cloud on your horizon.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your ability to research and dig up answers from the past is strong because of the placement of Mercury retrograde in your chart. Your mind is like a diamond drill bit that can burrow deep down to find what you’re looking for. Yes!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a good time to examine your attitude toward a group, club or organization to which you belong. You might want to discuss a problem with a friend, something that’s been going on for a while. You might see a way to remedy things so that in the future, things will work better for everyone.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is the perfect day to wrap up old business, especially if it means talking to a boss or an employer. In fact, you might want to reassess old goals? This is a good time to finish any kind of course or training that you have been doing to help your career.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Although delays to travel plans are likely; nevertheless, you will find your ability to study and learn is excellent. You will get the best results if you study something from the past – history, archaeology, anthropology or you finish a paper or project that was already started.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

During this window of Mercury retrograde, you will find it easy to wrap up details that have been dragging on regarding insurance matters, wills, estates, inheritances and anything to do with shared property. You can get this stuff done now! Just do it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Mercury goes retrograde three times a year. It is retrograde now, and this particular Mercury retrograde is taking place opposite your sign. This is why you will attract old partners and ex-spouses back into your life. (This could be good or not so good depending on your scenario.) Hopefully, this is an opportunity for closure.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be patient with delays and silly goof ups and mistakes at work. Late deliveries, mixed-up communications, machinery breakdowns and staff shortages will be par for the course. Instead, work to finish old projects because these will go quickly and be successful.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Many things from the past might be bubbling up on your plate now. Old flames and romantic interests might be one of them. Meanwhile, some of you will have a chance to get a diagnosis for an ailment or sickness that has plagued you. At last – clarity.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Do take advantage of this window of opportunity that is yours for a few more weeks because it will help you to finish repair projects at home and wrap up important family conversations, including disputes. Anything that helps should not be ignored.

May 13, 2022 Birthday Horoscope Digest

May the next year of your life be better than the past year! 

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope from sunsigns.org

MAY 13 birthday horoscope shows that you are responsible, funny, and respectable people. You do not wait for things to happen. You are a self-starter. These Taurus birthday individuals are usually impatient with people’s laziness or people’s lack of interest in life. You always take the initiative to do new things.

However, the May 13 birthday personality have a dark side to them that significant to anyone. They have the potential to work hard for what they want.

The May 13 zodiac birthday individuals are likely to maintain their distance when it comes to family gatherings and reunions. If today is your birthday, you are uncomfortable in group settings. You may have conflicts with certain family members preventing you from staying in touch as much as you should, if at all.

It would seem that perhaps you are not the most thoughtful parent, which is contrary to how you feel about your children. You love them very much but showing it is a difficult task.

The May 13 birthday astrology analysis predicts that you have a great desire to be happy. You do not like to be tied down and want a life that is certainly satisfying financially and emotionally. More than anything, you desire a world filled with champagne, caviar…, and a partner to share it with.

This partner must be able to share your goals and dreams. The May 13 zodiac love compatibility predictions show that you crave for a lover who is trustworthy and easy going. This person is usually hard for this Taurean to find. You tend to rush into love not thinking beyond the physical attraction and are often disappointed. This might take a toll on your current relationships.

The May 13 horoscope predicts that you will jump at an opportunity to do what you love. You may be at that place in life where it has a different tone than before. You will think of personal happiness and success as opposed to just making it or just having a job.

The career change may pay more and be more gratifying than past opportunities, but money is not your objective anymore. With a certain maturity and age comes the desire to do something different and meaningful.

The May 13 birthday meanings show that you will likely play a game of ball and expect it to be enough physical exercise for the month. While those born on this birthday despise laziness, you are guilty of having that attitude about exercise.

Typically, you do not stick to a routine at all or a healthy eating regime. May 13 birthday personality should watch their junk food intake. As you approach mid-life, things begin to change. Too much of the wrong foods can make your clothes fit differently.

As the May 13 birthday zodiac sign is Taurus, you are a responsible and imaginative Bull. But you can be estranged from family members. You can be inattentive parents but have a hidden love for your children.

However, when it comes to your feelings and romance, this Taurus is open and revealing. Money is not as important as it used to be and you will have an opportunity to change careers. This change is long-awaited as it comes around mid-life. It is an important change, nonetheless. Perhaps, the May 13 Taurus birthday individuals need to take better care of their health.

Huan / Dissolution

Wind carries the Mists aloft:
Sage rulers dedicated their lives to serving a Higher Power and built temples that still endure.

The King approaches his temple.
Success if you stay on course.
You may cross to the far shore.


Walls meant to protect have instead separated and isolated.
Your defenses have kept you apart from those whom you most need to touch.
Whatever the reason for discord between you, it is time to lay down your arms.
Dispel the inflexible demands and fears of the Mind so that you may reunite in the Heart.
If you have begrudged, forgive.
If you have torn down, repair.
If you have injured, heal.
If you have judged, pardon.
If you have grasped, let go.

Spells for Today

For many, Friday is the last work day of the week. It’s considered the fifth day of the work week and, also, the “cut loose” day. By Friday night, people are out having a party. That makes Friday the perfect day for lust, banish, fast-grant, and find spells. This day is so powerful (energy wise). That’s why whatever you do on this day will, usually, have a strong effect. If you want things out of your life, the darkness and power, associated with this day, bring the energy you need for that. If you need strong, immediate results, this is your day, as well.

Lust Spell – Hair on Stick Lust Spell

Items you will need:
3 strands of hair
1 comb or brush
1 small stick
1 tube of red paint
1 bottle of glue
Find a small stick and paint it red. While the paint is drying, comb through your hair and take three strands from your comb or brush. After the paint on the stick is dry, cover the stick in glue. Then, wrap the three strands of hair around the stick and let the glue dry.
Now, say this chant:
“I’ve wrapped up my passion.
I’ve wrapped up my lust.
I’m ready for it to come out.
I’m ready to trust
My desires and my will,
So the Universe can make it real.”
Put the stick under your bed, and your desires should could true.


Fast-Grant Spell – Money Grant Quick Spell

Items needed for this spell:
1 quarter
1 sheet of paper
1 pen or pencil
Close your eyes and think about how much money you need and how fast you need it. When you are ready, open your eyes. On the left side of the paper, trace around a quarter. Then, trace a quarter on the right side. Draw a line from one quarter to the other.
Say these words:
“Point A,
To point B
Money come fast.
Money come quickly”
Fold up the paper and put it in a coat pocket. Very soon, you should receive some money.



Find Spells – Help Me Find Spell

Items you will need:
1 small white candle
1 small blue candle
1 lighter or match
Set the two candles in front of you, close your eyes and think about what you have lost and how much you want it returned. Light both candles and say this chant three times:
“Blue candle is my love and devotion for ____________.
And how much I need ____________ back,
Safe and sound. _____________ was lost,
But I hope ________________ will be found.
White candle is for _________________’ s safe return,
While heading on my track.”
When you are done, blow out the candles. You may wake-up one morning and be shocked by the return of your lost item.

Explanation: There’s a black hole at the center of the Milky Way. Stars are observed to orbit a very massive and compact object there known as Sgr A* (say “sadge-ay-star”). But this just released radio image (inset) from planet Earth’s Event Horizon Telescope is the first direct evidence of the Milky Way’s central black hole. As predicted by Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity, the four million solar mass black hole’s strong gravity is bending light and creating a shadow-like dark central region surrounded by a bright ring-like structure. Supporting observations made by space-based telescopes and ground-based observatories provide a wider view of the galactic center’s dynamic environment and an important context for the Event Horizon Telescope’s black hole image. The main panel image shows the X-ray data from Chandra and infrared data from Hubble. While the main panel is about 7-light years across, the Event Horizon Telescope inset image itself spans a mere 10 light-minutes at the center of our galaxy, some 27,000 light-years away.

The Event Horizon Telescope network has captured the second-ever direct image of a black hole — called Sagittarius A* — at the center of the Milky Way.

Radio astronomers have imaged the super massive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. It is only the second-ever direct image of a black hole, after the same team unveiled a historic picture of a more distant black hole in 2019.

The long-awaited results, presented today by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration, show an image reminiscent of the earlier one, with a ring of radiation surrounding a darker disk of precisely the size that was predicted from indirect observations and from Albert Einstein’s theory of gravity.

“Today, right this moment, we have direct evidence that this object is a black hole,” said astrophysicist Sara Issaoun of the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics at a press conference in Garching, Germany.

“We’ve been working on this for so long, every once and a while you have to pinch yourself and remember that this is the black hole at the centre of our Universe,” said computational-imaging researcher and former EHT team member Katie Bouman at a press conference in Washington, DC. “I mean, what’s more cool than seeing the black hole at the centre of the Milky Way?”

Friday The 13th 2022: Why This Day Is A Lot Luckier Than You Might Think

·3 min read
Don’t freak out, but Friday the 13th 2022 is just around the corner! With all the negative hype surrounding this infamous day, you might count yourself lucky that May 13 will be the only time the 13th day of the month will land on a Friday this year. If you’re considering calling out of work and shielding yourself from all the “bad luck” that Friday the 13th inevitably brings, let me be the one to calm you down. Chances are, you’ve been lied to all your life about Friday the 13th, because I bet no one’s ever told you that it’s also considered the day of the “Divine Feminine”, making it a time to celebrate everything it means to be in touch with your inner goddess!

You’ve probably been told that Friday the 13th is something to be afraid of, but I bet no one’s ever explained to you why. According to Phillips Stevens, Jr., associate professor of anthropology at the University at Buffalo, the infamy surrounding the number 13 can be traced back to

Friday the 13th

For many people, Friday the 13th is a holiday that carries ominous overtones and is considered unlucky in Western culture. It’s a day which occurs at least once every year and may occur up to 3 times in a calendar year. However, while some people consider the day to be unlucky or even evil, statistical analysis has shown that fewer accidents happen on this day than on any other day. Which is probably due to more people staying home and being extra careful on this day.

History of Friday the 13th

Unfortunately, the history of this day is somewhat obscured by time, so it really isn’t known why it has come to be known as an unlucky day. Throughout much of modern human history, Friday has been considered unlucky and the number 13 has been unlucky, but the combination of the two wasn’t considered especially unlucky together until about the late 19th century or early 20th century.

Since ancient times, Friday has always been a day of bad luck. On Fridays, sailors avoided starting new journeys, seamstresses would avoid needlework on this day and businessmen would avoid writing letters on this day. The superstition that this day was unlucky was so prevalent that farmers would avoid starting their crops on a Friday. However, not every Friday was considered equal. Good Friday was a day that was seen as a day that brought good luck – especially if you were a sailor who just so happened to have made their maiden voyage on Good Friday.

Likewise, the number 13 has been unlucky since ancient times as well. However, it really isn’t known when that superstition began. Some people think that it goes back to the last supper of Jesus Christ. Counting Jesus and his 12 disciples, there were 13 people at the table. This is considered unlucky because the 13th guest,  Judas Iscariot would betray Christ and died by his own hand. This led to the belief that if 13 people sat down to a meal together, one of them would die by the end of the year. The “unluckiness” of the number 13 became extremely popular during the 19th century. During this time, people would avoid having anything to do with this number. So much so, the number was often skipped when numbering hotel rooms and the 13th floor of buildings were often mislabeled as the 14th floor.

Lest We Should Forget Friday the 13th and The Knights Templar

Today is Friday the 13th. Many people of the superstitious sort consider Friday the 13th to be unlucky. There are people who wear good luck charms all day and some who go so far as to refuse to leave home, lest something unlucky happen to them.

But many don’t know that one legend of the origin of Friday the 13th as unlucky comes from the persecution of the Knights Templar in the 14th Century. On Friday, October 13th, 1307, King Philip IV of France, in league with Pope Clement V ordered all Templars to be rounded up and thrown in prison. The Knights were accused of numerous crimes including heresy and treason. For two hundred years the Knights Templar had been the most dominant force in Christendom, but after their defeat at the Siege of Acre and the loss of the Holy Land, their influence began to wane.

Yet they still held enormous power and great amounts of wealth. Pope Clement sought to merge the Knights Templar with the Knights Hospitaller another powerful order at the time. Neither group found such a merger ideal. And despite the loss of the Holy Land, the Templars were still a part of of everyday life in the Middle Ages. Their houses, churches and …
