A Thought for Today

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

June 2 , 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 Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Family conversations along with your routine at home will be a bit unpredictable today. Someone might do or say something you least expect. Something unusual might occur. This could be enlivening for you or irritating. Remember: Patience is a virtue.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

New ideas, new places, new people and new situations will make today a fascinating day for you. Do stay on your toes so you can keep up with what’s happening. Write down your clever ideas for future reference. Pay attention to everything you say and do to avoid accidents.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Keep an eye on your money and your belongings today because something untoward or unexpected could impact them. For example, you might find money or you might lose money. Be smart and protect your belongings against loss, theft or damage. Ka-ching!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you feel impulsive and perhaps a bit reckless because the Moon is in your sign dancing with wild, wacky Uranus. (Zing!) This can introduce an electric energy around you. It will give you a pleasant feeling of restlessness and a desire for excitement. “Wazzup?”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you feel vaguely restless. You might attract someone to you who shakes things up a little because you want some kind of change to take place today, at one level or another. You’ve decided that either you’re going to bring this change about, or you’re going to watch it from the sidelines.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A friend or a member of a group might surprise you today. Perhaps they will suggest something you didn’t expect to hear? Or you might be surprised that the group itself is embracing a different direction? You might meet a real character today.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Someone in a position of authority might surprise you today. This could be anyone from your parent to a boss to a VIP. (Yes, it could also be the police. Be aware of the fact that this is possible in case you have to do some damage control.) Be smart and use any connections you have to your advantage.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today, you’re ready for action. You want some adventure! Actually, you might encounter surprises due to the fact that travel plans are cancelled or delayed. University and college schedules are also dicey and unpredictable. Stay tuned to know what’s happening.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Double check details related to banking, taxes, debt and shared property because something unexpected could impact these areas. If so, you don’t want to be caught off guard. Stay on top of your scene to prevent slipups that might cost money.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might meet someone new and exciting today. Or possibly, a friend or a partner will throw you a curveball. (Get ready.) Of course, you might do something to provoke an argument or stir the pot because you want to shake things up a little. (Naughty you.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Because your work routine or something to do with your job might be interrupted today, give yourself extra time to deal with the unexpected. Staff shortages, delayed deliveries, broken equipment and power outages are some possibilities. Stay cool and be prepared.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Parents should be extra vigilant today because this is an accident-prone day for their kids. Meanwhile, social plans might suddenly change. Events could be cancelled, including sports. (Guard against sports accidents.) Or possibly, you will be surprised by a fun invitation to go somewhere? If so, act quickly because this window of opportunity will be brief.

Ailm

Transcendence, humility, compassion

Tree: Fir (Abies spp.) or Elm (Ulmus spp.)

Letter: A

Ailm represents the enlightenment that comes of perspective. Its symbol looks like a cross post-resurrection. “He is risen”, meaning He has transcended suffering and has forgiven His persecutors and all mankind to boot. In Iolo Morganwg’s Druid prayer, Ailm is the “love of all existences” that transcends the karmic cycle. Drawing Ailm in any form is a call to look at one’s own personality and to ask “What am I here to learn?” Ailm is a perspective that comes from eons and many, many lives worth of experience. Only lived experience gives us compassion and detachment in balance. Ailm is also the divine aspect of humor. When you laugh an honest laugh rooted in humility, the gods laugh with you.

Though our culture tends to devalue anyone above the age of 40, we can acknowledge wisdom that comes with age, not in every case but reliably enough that it’s a valid stereotype that a person gets “older and wiser.” Having a bunch of lived experience can be quite helpful when it comes to solving life’s problems and making peace with its predicaments. The truly wise neither rush forward with unbalanced optimism nor shrink away with unbalanced pessimism; their information is better than that. They have the ability to read the winds before hoisting sails and attempting to journey across the sea.

Questions when you draw Ailm: …

Hexagram Thirty – Eight/38

K’uei / Estrangement

Fire distances itself from its nemesis, the Lake:
No matter how large or diverse the group, the Superior Person remains uniquely himself.

Small accomplishments are possible.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

You are working at cross-purposes with another.
The distance between you is very wide.
The gap can be closed, however, with no compromise of your integrity.
You are not adversaries in this case — just two persons addressing individual needs.
Ask yourself: are these needs mutually exclusive?
Is there common ground here?
Must there be one winner and one loser?
Could you become partners in seeking a solution that would allow for two winners?

Eight

Positive qualities

The positive qualities of the Eight are perseverance, courage and a great business instinct. People of your type control everything that happens in our world. No task is impossible for you, no obstacle invincible. You clearly see every next step both on your path and on the path of progress. Therefore, you know exactly what and when you should do.

You are reliable and impartial. You act tough, but always fair. If you take someone under your wing, this lucky person can consider their life to be well-off, and protection from any problems is guaranteed.

Negative qualities

The most obvious negative qualities of the Eight are arrogance, haughtiness and their habit of putting a slight upon the people who are in a dependent position. Well, there is also a couple of canonical vices like wrath and pride.

All these are the indispensable features of your business life, so they do not cause misunderstanding among colleagues and subordinates. In everyday life, however, such manifestations spoil your image adding some rough and unpleasant features to it. Learning to control yourself, so as not to abuse the family’s angelic patience, would be useful.

2022 June 2

Lunar Occultation of Venus

Image Credit & CopyrightQuentin Gineys

Explanation: On May 27 Venus rose as the morning star, near the waning crescent Moon in a predawn sky already full of planets. It was close on the sky to the Moon’s crescent and a conjunction of the second an third brightest celestial beacons were enjoyed by skygazers around the world. But seen from locations along a track through southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean the Moon actually passed in front of Venus in a lunar occultation. In this animated gif the 75 percent illuminated disk of Venus approaches and just begins to disappear behind the sunlit southwestern lunar limb. The telescopic frames used to construct it were captured from Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean around 4:50am local time, with the Moon and Venus very close to the eastern horizon. At the time Venus was over 180 million kilometers from Reunion Island, compared to a lunar distance of a mere 400 thousand kilometers or so. About 50 minutes later Venus emerged from behind the Moon.
