Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you need to be yourself and do your own thing. Therefore, you’ll be more independent than usual, which others might think is demanding. Hey, it’s okay to be who you are. If others don’t like it, maybe you should reconsider the friendship?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

While others might be out socializing, you feel a need to withdraw to a cubbyhole. You will prefer a relaxing, pleasant time at home — maybe a hot bath, with your favourite drink while you watch a guilty pleasure on the monitor of your choice.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you want to talk to others because you want to enlighten someone about something. In other words, you have something to say! (Not surprising for a Gemini.) Nevertheless, try to remain objective. Don’t be impatient with others if they’re just shooting the breeze.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You have money on your mind today. You’re also more intense than usual about your possessions and what you own, which is why you might not want to lend something to someone today. This is also why you will taking care of something you own – cleaning or repairing it.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign. This is something that happens for two days every month and when it occurs, it will always make you more emotional than usual. However, it will also slightly improve your good luck! Ask the universe for a favour. (Try it.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

It’s Saturday and of course, it’s the weekend. Nevertheless, for various reasons, you’re tempted to withdraw and be by yourself today because it feels reassuring and comforting to do so. You’re not into socializing today. You want to pamper yourself quietly and privately.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today your interaction with friends will be important to you. You want to hang out with others, either one friend in particular, or perhaps a group. Whatever the case, you will feel that your contact with others has more meaning today. It’s important to you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

For 2 1/2 days every month, the Moon travels across the top of your chart. That’s what’s happening right now, and when this occurs, it tends to attract attention to you. In fact, people seem to be aware of personal details about your private life. (Yikes!) Just so you know.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’ll feel happier today if you break from routine and do something different. You want to shake things up because you want adventure! Ideally, you would love to travel or have a change of scenery. You also want to learn something new to make life more exciting. Ideas?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

No matter what happens today, your reaction to everything will be intense. In fact, all your emotional experiences will not only be more intense, you will likely attract intense, powerful people to you. (Like, what’s with that?) You might also feel a bit jealous of someone.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today the Moon is in the sign that is exactly opposite from your sign, which means when you are dealing with others, you will have to go more than halfway. This simple requires finesse, diplomacy and tolerance. Fortunately, you are super skilled at dealing with people.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today you might have to put your own wants and needs second to the wants and needs of someone else because this is a day of service to others. (For your sign.) Hey, this doesn’t mean you have to be a martyr. It simply means you have to do what is appropriate and decent. Just do it.

Tarot Card

From The Celtic Dragon Tarot by D.J. Conway

Pages 140 – 141

King of Cups – A Minor Arcana Court Card

Emotional events

A regal, older man stands before a throne made of shell. He wears a crown with pearls on the spiky tips. In one he holds a chalice trimmed with scallop shells. His other hand lies wrapped around the throne. The throne stands on a beach, strewn with shells, starfish, and driftwood. The King of Cups has moved to a state of being where he is no longer ruled by the tides of emotion. He has earned his throne, which represents security and stability in the mist of emotions (the water of the sea). His crown with pearls symbolizes spiritual enlightenment found in the sacred center of every human, the discovery of which enabled him to escape the emotional extremes of life. The shells (continuing life from one cycle to another) and the starfish (pentacle of protection) have come from the sea, which is the cauldron of creation and rebirth. Through the King’s companionship with the Water dragon he has learned how to use emotional energy in a more positive way.

Divinatory Meaning: This card represents a loving and caring masculine influence. There is a possiblity of a journey across water. You may experience an episode of up and down emotions.

Beith/Beth

Beith, or Beth, corresponds to the letter B in the alphabet, and is associated with the Birch tree. When this symbol is used, it is representative of new beginnings, change, release, and rebirth. In some traditions, it also has connections with purification.

Birch trees are hardy. They’ll grow just about anywhere, including on bare soil. Because they tend to grow in clusters, what may be just one or two seedlings now can be practically an entire forest in a few decades. In addition to being a sturdy sort of tree, the Birch is useful. In days gone by, it was used for infants’ cradles, and is still harvested today to make cabinets and furniture.

From a magical perspective, there are a number of uses for Birch. The branches are traditionally incorporated into the construction of a besom, and are used for the bristles. Use the white outer bark in ritual in place of paper or parchment–just be sure you only harvest the bark from a fallen Birch tree, not a living one. Ancient herbalists discovered that various parts of this tree can be used for medicinal purposes. Bark was once brewed into a tea to fight fevers, and the leaves were used alternately as a laxative and a diuretic, depending on how they were prepared.

Beith Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, it means it’s time to get rid of all those negative influences you’ve been carrying around with you. Figure out what things are bad in your life, which relationships are toxic, and find a way to leave them behind. Instead of being dragged down by the negative, focus on the positive things you have in your life, the blessings and abundance. Use these things as a focus, rather than the harmful or damaging ones.

Magical Aspects: Consider the property of renewal and rebirth, as demonstrated by the Birch. Use this as a tool for spiritual and emotional regrowth, and developing your own ability to regenerate where there has been emptiness or devastation.

Nine

Nine, as one of the core numerological numbers, implies idealism turned into the main principle of life. Figuratively speaking, you do not pretend to understand the purpose of the Creator, but hope that things are arranged reasonably and end well. Everything else is derived from this. You are kind as you don’t feel entitled to increase the amount of evil in the world. You display exceptional intuition and insight because you are afraid of accidentally causing someone harm or doing someone wrong. You love people because you think this is the only opportunity to make them happy.

The main positive qualities of the Nine are good will to all people without exception, the ability to be sympathetic and to show mercy to those who need it.

Moreover, you have natural charm, the ability to awaken good feelings. Apparently, this quality is granted to you as an additional tool for the promotion of your views of life.

Tau Herculids from Space

Image Credit & CopyrightZhuoxiao Wang, Yangwang-1 Space Telescope, Origin.Space

Explanation: On May 31 tens of parallel meteor streaks were recorded in this 8 degree wide field of view of planet Earth’s limb from space. The image is one of a series of 5 minute long observations by the orbiting Yangwang-1 space telescope. It was captured at 03:43 UT, near the peak of the Tau Herculid meteor shower. As predicted, the meteor shower was an active one this year, caused as Earth swept through a relatively dense stream of debris from disintegrating Comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3, but was lacking bright meteors. Nearly all of the Tau Herculid meteors in the Yangwang-1 image are too faint to be detected by groundbased instruments. But on that date patient earthbound skywatchers under clear skies still enjoyed a memorable showing of the Tau Herculids.

7500 years old ancient goddess relic discovered in Israel

Cover picture for the article

During an excavation in Eilat, Israel, archaeologists found an extremely ancient idol. It is believed to represent an important Semitic goddess.

In Eilat, situated in the south of Israel, archaeologists have discovered an idol dating back several thousand years. Carved from a tree trunk, this artefact is believed to be an object designed in honour of Asherah, the goddess who was the wife of the creator god Yahweh, as reported by Arkeonews.

Asherah, a symbol of fertility

According to Geo, before turning to monotheism, the Hebrew people were polytheistic, meaning that they worshipped a multitude of gods. In ancient times, they idolised Asherah, a goddess who is said to have been the mother of 70 other divine entities. She was given various names and functions. Asherah is also known as Ashratum or Baalat and is sometimes associated with the supreme god El or Baal. Her name is also mentioned in the Bible. A symbol of fertility, it is represented as a female figure, a tree or a pole. In Eilat, archaeologists have (re)discovered a 30 cm relic carved from a trunk.

An ancient archaeological site

The Red Sea is definitely rich in artefacts. Just after the Blemmyes Tomb found in Egypt, this relic is another great archaeological find. The site where the relic was found has been excavated by scientists since 1978. According to Arkeonewsit contained 11 simple tombs and 20 burial mounds. The site adds that:

The presence of the juniper trunk clearly shows that the site was reserved for the worship of goddesses, and it is probably the oldest Asherah idol found in the region (it has been carbon-dated to 4540 BC).
