A Thought for Today

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

May 23, 2022 Daily Horoscopes Digest

Click here for Georgia Nicols daily horoscopes

Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a wonderful day to reach out to daily contacts, siblings, relatives and work to tie up loose ends. People will listen to you because you are vigourous and motivated. “Ten-shun!” It’s time to deal with old business and financial matters.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You begin this week in a strong, empowered way because retrograde Mercury is in your sign getting a boost from fiery Mars. This means even if you’re swamped with errors, delays and confusion (and people from your past), today you are authoritative and confident.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a great day to do research because you won’t stop until you find what you’re looking for. (Oh yeah, you’ll be like a dog with a bone.) Search for hidden answers and tough solutions to old problems. Expect success or at least, good progress.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your involvement with younger people will be strong and energetic today. You might act this way or you might encounter someone who acts this way. This is an excellent day to review past goals and ponder their relevance to your current world.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Conversations with parents, bosses, teachers and the police will be lively today. When others speak, they will mean business. However, when you speak you will mean business as well! Use this energy to finish something that has been left undone. Just do it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a wonderful day to study and learn something new because you have lots of mental energy. You can also apply this strong focus to legal matters that have been lingering, or something to do with a medical situation. You will make great progress!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You can start this week by getting rid of old business connected with taxes, debt, insurance issues and anything to do with shared property – all that red-tape stuff you’ve been trying to ignore. The secret is that today it will be easy to plow through these details. You will be energetic and productive!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

A feisty discussion with an ex-partner or old friend might take place today. If so, you’ll have no trouble holding your own ground. The thing to remember is not to say anything that you will later regret. Note: Issues that are job-related will strongly favour you now.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Roll up your sleeves and get busy today because you will make great headway at work, or in your job, or tackling any task that you want to get done, especially something that you’ve been putting off. This is because today you are motivated and you have the energy to work hard. Use this to accomplish things!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is the perfect day to tackle creative, artistic projects that you’ve been meaning to get to. Now you can finish that masterpiece, patchwork quilt, painted table, manuscript or whatever it is you’ve been working on. This is because you have an eager willingness to do this today. Do it now!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’ll be encouraged by how much you get done puttering around your own doing home repairs and catching up on old business that has been bugging you. Finally! You’re back in action. If old friends or relatives are parked on the sofa – let them help you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Group discussions and conversations with others will be dynamic and alive today because you’re ready to say what you mean and mean what you say! It’s also a good time for intellectual activities, especially exploring the past and wrapping up old business.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Filmmaker Ryan Coogler (1986) shares your birthday today. You are a hard-working perfectionist who has excellent communication skills. Nevertheless, you are fun-loving and good-natured. You have a good sense of humour. Welcome moments of solitude this year because this is a year of reflection for you. You might explore your spiritual or religious beliefs. Ironically, your time alone will draw people to you.

Your upbringing may have been different than most. This Gemini as a parent is likely to be disciplinarians or even critical of their children. Nurturing the competitor, you may bring out the best in them. Be careful not to push too hard, Gemini.

In love, typically, the May 23rd zodiac person takes a stand for marriage vows and will remain steadfast in the commitment. Most born on this day are wonderful companions as the Gemini is likely to be loving and open-minded. They need to please.

The May 23rd birthday horoscope predicts that you require an emotional dedication from a friendship that is independent but loyal, passionate, unafraid, and full of fun.

The May 23 horoscope meanings show that these natives encompass many gifts and among them is their ability to attract money. It seems to accumulate. But you may have trouble saving it, however. The more you make, the more you spend. It is suggested that you should seek the assistance of a professional when it comes to money management.

With this kind of thinking, you need to have a clear understanding of goals and how they should work. Usually, May 23 zodiac individuals are idealistic and are clueless when it comes to the word “budget.” Or saving for life’s little-unexpected mishaps, disappointments, and emergencies. Nevertheless, Gemini will see a project through if it holds interest.

The May 23 birthday astrology predicts that you are characteristically healthily but may experience some difficulties relaxing. Your body’s metabolism can be higher than that of others. However, a body can only function so long before it needs to rejuvenate or refresh itself.

There are all kinds of aids available for relaxation therapy. There are sound effects, aromatherapy, and yoga, just to name a few. You could use a checkup. As the May 23 birthday zodiac sign is Gemini, you are known to neglect your physical condition.

The May 23 zodiac personality are industrious people. You can also be free-spirited individuals who enjoy the company of close friends and family. As parents, you are likely to be authoritative. The person born on this day will likely marry, as the idea of being alone is a lonely idea.

It is time for a checkup. If you have done so already, please disregard this message, but this Gemini can be neglectful of their thrones.

Rune

ODIN

The Unknowable, The God Odin

Empty is the end, empty is the beginning. Like the phoenix from the ashes it rises – from what we call fate. The surrender of control is the supreme challenge for a spiritual warrior. If you drag the blank rune, take courage. Trust that the universe will make self change in your ongoing life progress.


Witch’s Rune

From wizardforest.com – Witches Runes

RING

This rune is also called Marriage, Relationship. But it doesn’t mean that this rune predicts wedding (although in some cases it is possible). More often the fallen rune Ring means an agreement, relation between people, friends or partners. It may concern work, contractual obligations, and concluded agreements.

Key words: marriage, agreement, exchange, universe, partnership, teamwork, agreement of the parties.

Sabbat: Wheel of the Year

Element: Aether (spirit)


Ogham

From symbolsage.com – Ogham Symbols

Amancholl

Amancholl has the phonetic value of Ae, and corresponds to the witch hazel—sometimes pine. However, it doesn’t refer to the common witch hazel in North America, but to the witch elm, whose British name is witch hazel. It’s also given various names such as Xi, Mor, and Peine. In Celtic lore, the elm is associated with the underworld, though modern interpretation links it to cleansing and purification.

Hexagram Twenty – Three/23

Po / Splitting Apart

The weight of the Mountain presses down upon a weak foundation of Earth:
The Superior Person will use this time of oppression to attend to the needs of those less fortunate.

Any action would be ill-timed.
Stand fast.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

This is a situation easily mistaken for Stagnation (Hexagram 12) or Revolution (Hexagram 49).
It just depends on which side you’re on.
During a time of Stagnation, human worms invade to feed on the decay.
During a time of Revolution, oppression is being overthrown.
But in this situation, oppressors are violently seizing power.
Pay special heed when you receive this hexagram, because the oracle is often warning you of a situation of which you are totally unaware.
You are about to be blindsided.

Numerology

Two

Two, as one of the Core Numbers, is an Axis of Symmetry, a point of equilibrium which provides peace to your inner world. Any disturbance of this condition you perceive as a direct threat to life and well-being. It provokes you to action with the main goal of the restoration of order and harmony in the world.Intuitive confidence in the rationality and justice of the world order makes you stick to the view that all the troubles come from the people’s inability to hear and understand each other. Therefore you voluntarily assume the responsibility of a peacemaker.

Positive qualities

 

The list of positive qualities of the Two fully matches the list of canonical human virtues. They are good nature, peacefulness, generosity, ethic and tact based on intuition, insight and understanding of the human soul.

Add romantic, artistic nature and an exceptional sense of beauty here, and you get a genuine Masterpiece. One can only regret that it is almost impossible to have this figure in all numbers of the numerological core, and that people whose positive qualities completely supersede all the negative ones simply don’t exist.

One should clearly see the borderline between diplomacy and commitment to the peaceful coexistence, and compliance and timidity.

Magpie

The magpie is one of the most intelligent birds on the planet. It is one of the very few birds that can produce a wide range of calls and songs.

Having a magpie as your spirit animal draws attention to your wide array of skills and talents. When this black and white bird flies into your life, it means you are no ordinary person.

This bird is attracted to shiny objects, and it has been known to swoop down and make away with pieces of jewelry.

This reflects on your personality as a go-getter. You don’t wait for things to happen in your world: you push them to happen.

In many cultures and mythologies, the magpie signifies good luck, progress, and success.

Spell for Today – Rose’s 3 “Clean Coins” Of Prosperity

You’ll need:

* 1 green candle
* 3 silver colored coins
* Salt

STEP 1: Setup a basic alta and decorate it with money symbols, fake (or real) paper money, etc…

STEP 2: Engrave/inscribe whatever amount of money you need on the green candle. Make sure you are reasonable here. Get too greedy, and the spell won’t do anything. And make sure it’s an amount of money that you actually need…not “want”.

STEP 3: Hold the candle, and each of the silver coins to your heart, one at a time.

As you do this, close your eyes and visualize a green, wealth-attracting energy all around you…”see it” actually charging each item through your hands.

STEP 4: Leave them on your altar and prepare a warm bath.

STEP 5: When it’s ready, drop in the 3 silver coins and a pinch of salt.

STEP 6: Put the green candle at the end of your tub.

STEP 7: Turn off the lights and light your green candle.

STEP 8: Lay back in the water and focus on the flame of the candle.

While it burns, visualize some different ways you’ll receive the money…and most importantly, feel the emotions you’ll have when it arrives. Really see this happening.

STEP 9: Say:

“The green Dragon flies over the sea;
bringing wealth and prosperity to me.”

STEP 10: Please…do not wash/clean yourself. Just allow yourself to soak and relax.

Once the candle has burned for about 10 minutes, get out of the bath and dry off.

STEP 11: Bring the candle and coins to your altar and let the candle burn down
at LEAST half way. (Be safe!)

The Once and Future Stars of Andromeda

Image Credit: NASANSFNOAJHubbleSubaruMayallDSSSpitzerProcessing & Copyright: Robert Gendler & Russell Croman

Explanation: This picture of Andromeda shows not only where stars are now, but where stars will soon be. Of course, the big, beautiful Andromeda Galaxy, M31, is a spiral galaxy — and a mere 2.5 million light-years away. Both space-based and ground-based observatories have been here combined to produce this intriguing composite image of Andromeda, at wavelengths both inside and outside normally visible light. The visible light shows where M31’s stars are now — as highlighted in white and blue hues and imaged by the HubbleSubaru, and Mayall telescopes. The infrared light shows where M31’s future stars will soon form — as highlighted in orange hues and imaged by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope. The infrared light tracks enormous lanes of dust, warmed by stars, sweeping along Andromeda’s spiral arms. This dust is a tracer of the galaxy’s vast interstellar gas — the raw material for future star formation. These new stars will likely form over the next hundred million years, surely well before Andromeda merges with our Milky Way Galaxy in about 5 billion years.
