I. The Explanation of Page of Rainbows Osho Zen Tarot

When we have a true spirit of adventure, we will move like this child. Full of trust, out of the darkness of the forest into the rainbow of the light, we walk step by step, fascinated by the feeling of the magic into the unreal realm.

The adventure really has nothing to do with plans and maps and programs and organizations. Page of Rainbows Osho Zen represents a quality that can reach us from anywhere – at home or the office, in the wilderness or in the city, in a creative project or in relationships with others. Whenever we enter a new and unknown place with the spirit of trust of a child, naive, open, and vulnerable, even the smallest of things can become the greatest adventure.

Rune

From white-magic-help.net – Runes

FEHU

Property, Food, Livestock

Fehu is the rune of fulfillment: ambition satisfied, salary received, fulfilled love. It also promises food, from the commonplace to the holy divine. This rune requires a deep exploration of the importance of profit in your life. Another aspect of Fehu is the conservation and preservation of what has already been won. Caution and vigilance are necessary, especially in happy times. Even if there is a reason for celebration,  don’t be distracted by reckless bliss.

Witch’s Rune

From wizardforest.com – Witches Runes

WOMAN

This rune represents a woman, witch warder and Holy Grail, it is referred to both healing and home magic. Woman represents healing, education, creativity, home, maternity, fruitfulness and sympathy. Practically, this rune provides “soft effect”. Consequently, you should not expect the events to develop fast, when this Woman Rune falls to you.

Key words: healing, home, cosiness, mother, education, softness, sympathy, female sexuality, care.

Sex: female

Element: Earth

Chakra No.2: sacral for women

Ogham

From Druid Ogham- For more information about Phagos from druidogham.wordpress.com

Phagos

Teaching, education, mastery, virtuosity, legacy

Tree: Beech (Fagus spp.)

Letter: Ph or F

Phagos is a reminder of the mental discipline it takes in the process of acquiring knowledge. When you get to the point of knowing a subject so well, you can teach it effortlessly, then you have mastered the subject on the mental plane, which reverberates through the other planes. Saturated knowledge is knowing a thing inside and out. Those who believe in reincarnation believe this is the kind of knowledge that does not go away when you shed one mortal body for the next one: for instance, a skilled midwife will stand a good chance of coming back as a competent ob/gyn who stumbles upon their talent in a seemingly random way. Or a lute player may be reborn and pick up the guitar at age twelve and learn it faster than any other kid in their class because of knowledge picked up in past lifetimes.

Teaching and inspiring others to master a subject is the physical manifestation of knowledge, or in old terminology, the Word made flesh. Beech tree bark makes a primitive form of paper. Phagos implies the written word and the transmission of knowledge through our uniquely human invention: writing.

Teachers and teaching are often undervalued in the modern West, with denigrations such as “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach,” being thrown about by the arrogant who have never been able to translate their mental skill in a way that consistently inspires others to learn. Bad teachers abound, and they can be bad for any number or reasons: some choose teaching when they have no passion for it, some want the glory of being labeled a teacher. Everybody knows that a good teacher is worth their weight in gold when it comes to the transmission of knowledge, and that a bad teacher is hardly worth the powder to blow them to hell, and often what a teacher is paid has nothing to do with what they’re worth. If you have a good teacher, let them know. Learn all you can while you are able to do so with the best teachers you can find (we live in the age of the internet, and a huge number of great teachers “live” there). Concentrate on a small number of subjects until you gain complete mastery, because you will take that knowledge with you long after your current flesh body dies. If you know a subject well enough to teach it, this Ogham is encouraging you to spread the wealth of your knowledge with other humans in a direct and potentially physical way such as writing.

Questions when you draw Phagos: …

 

June 8 World Oceans Day

Today is: World Oceans Day

JOIN US

This year’s United Nations World Oceans Day, on 8 June 2022, will highlight the theme Revitalization: Collective Action for the Ocean.

This is the first hybrid celebration of the annual event, hosted in-person at the UN Headquarters in New York and broadcast live.

The ocean connects, sustains, and supports us all. Yet its health is at a tipping point and so is the well-being of all that depends on it. As the past years have shown us, we need to work together to create a new balance with the ocean that no longer depletes its bounty but instead restores its vibrancy and brings it new life.

Join us as we shed light on the communities, ideas, and solutions that are working together to protect and revitalize the ocean and everything it sustains.

UN World Oceans Day 2022 is Hosted by the United Nations Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea, Office of Legal Affairs, with the generouse contribution of Oceanic Global, which is made possible by La Mer.

Gardening by June’s 2022 Moon Phases – Printable

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.

The January 8 birthday horoscope predicts you are gifted and honest! You will seek to balance your spending habits. You need to surround yourself with beautiful things. You work hard to earn everything you have, but it seems as if the dollar does not mean a thing when we both know it does.

I mean, did you need to add those pair of designer shoes to your assortment? Some purchased items can be viewed as frivolous or unnecessary. You spoil your friends and family also with this extravagant spending. I know you want to give the children what you did not have as a child. But teach them the work ethic behind it that affords this kind of lifestyle. This Capricorn birthday person is one hardworking individual.

The zodiac sign for January 8 is Capricorn. According to your birthday personality, your connections with your family are powerful. It is where you feel emotionally safe and all but, sometimes they are inclined to have more influence than they should when it comes to important decisions in your life. You give them too much power.

It is true you have big dreams and goals to achieve. In that case, it is wise to get a second opinion but realize it is just their opinion. You have the ultimate control over your life. Self-doubt does not look good on you. You should know that you could achieve any goal you so desire. You are Capricorn.

When it comes to lasting friendships, January 8 birthday personality have few outside of family members. This is mainly due to trust issues. You feel that if there is no trust there can be no relationship. In the black and white world, this would be true, but we are humans.

We are born with imperfections, and we make mistakes. Learn to forgive and to forget. Clear the air and move forward to the next stage of your relationship. You will be much happier when you do this. You will be much healthier, too.

When it comes to lasting friendships, January 8 birthday personality have few outside of family members. This is mainly due to trust issues. You feel that if there is no trust there can be no relationship. In the black and white world, this would be true, but we are humans.

January 8th horoscope predicts that you love to eat. You do not spend much time on evaluating the health benefits or lack thereof of the foods you consume. I suspect that there could be an underlying cause for your need to eat certain foods. The future of person who born on 8 January depends on how well they take care of themselves.

Maybe, you should think about it to find a connection and work out any issues you may have. There are a lot of workout videos and programs now to assist you with any physical goals you may have this year. Exercise is a great way to iron out your frustrations.

If you were born with Capricorn birthday, you have a sense of purpose that most people do not receive until later in life. In that aspect, you are fortunate. With this ability, you can see both sides of a situation. You are sensitive to others and often feel guilty about being in a neutral position. There is no need to feel this way. Stop being so hard on yourself, Capricorn. You cannot please everyone all the time.

Regarding your personal development, you will be very active according to the Capricorn astrology predictions. Be aware of anyone that wants to stir up matters during this crucial period. You are emotional, and your mood swings can be frustrating to say the very least. Use that charm to express yourself. There is no need to have outbursts of anger. Your temper tends to alter the reputation you work so hard to develop.

Capricorn zodiac birthday analysis asks you to prepare for dramatic changes. If you are born today on January 8, you will have to make adjustments according to those changes that occur. Some unexpected turn of events takes your life out of order making it difficult for things to turn out as you planned. It would help if you were practical when it comes to attaining your petitions. Also, examine what went wrong so that you can plan better for future activity.

From MoonGiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is 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 June 2022 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

This rune symbolizes unity and companionship received as a gift. Besides, it advises people do not to accept what the rune provides as a partnership in something which only two people can have in between them. Therefore, you should not present it as a gift but as a unified wish between the couple. In general, advice is valid for every relationship in life, no matter it is the business or the personal one.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham- For more information about Phagos

Phagos

Teaching, education, mastery, virtuosity, legacy

Tree: Beech (Fagus spp.)

Letter: Ph or F

Phagos is a reminder of the mental discipline it takes in the process of acquiring knowledge. When you get to the point of knowing a subject so well, you can teach it effortlessly, then you have mastered the subject on the mental plane, which reverberates through the other planes. Saturated knowledge is knowing a thing inside and out. Those who believe in reincarnation believe this is the kind of knowledge that does not go away when you shed one mortal body for the next one: for instance, a skilled midwife will stand a good chance of coming back as a competent ob/gyn who stumbles upon their talent in a seemingly random way. Or a lute player may be reborn and pick up the guitar at age twelve and learn it faster than any other kid in their class because of knowledge picked up in past lifetimes.

Teaching and inspiring others to master a subject is the physical manifestation of knowledge, or in old terminology, the Word made flesh. Beech tree bark makes a primitive form of paper. Phagos implies the written word and the transmission of knowledge through our uniquely human invention: writing.

Teachers and teaching are often undervalued in the modern West, with denigrations such as “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach,” being thrown about by the arrogant who have never been able to translate their mental skill in a way that consistently inspires others to learn. Bad teachers abound, and they can be bad for any number or reasons: some choose teaching when they have no passion for it, some want the glory of being labeled a teacher. Everybody knows that a good teacher is worth their weight in gold when it comes to the transmission of knowledge, and that a bad teacher is hardly worth the powder to blow them to hell, and often what a teacher is paid has nothing to do with what they’re worth. If you have a good teacher, let them know. Learn all you can while you are able to do so with the best teachers you can find (we live in the age of the internet, and a huge number of great teachers “live” there). Concentrate on a small number of subjects until you gain complete mastery, because you will take that knowledge with you long after your current flesh body dies. If you know a subject well enough to teach it, this Ogham is encouraging you to spread the wealth of your knowledge with other humans in a direct and potentially physical way such as writing.

Hexagram Sixteen – 16

Yü / Enthusiasm

Thunder comes resounding out of the Earth:
Similar thunder roars up from the masses when the Superior Person strikes a chord in their hearts.

Whip up enthusiasm, rally your forces, and move boldly forward.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

There is a rhythmic force, a world music, that lives deep in the Unconscious of each of us.
It’s a primitive drumbeat, a shaking rattle, a tribal chant that invokes the primal self to rise up and join the dance.
This is the enthusiasm that is generated now.
Not rhetorical persuasion, not a play on the emotions, but a charismatic, irresistible Call of the Wild.
Confucius said that the person who could comprehend this could ‘rule the world as though it were spinning in his hand.’
This is a time for instinct, not intellect — the Thunder from the Beneath.

Numerology

Twenty – One

Similar to 12 – creative, individualistic, and unconventional. It relies on the self and is a little irresponsible. Not good at managing time, inefficient. 3 Based on 21, however, is more intuitive, sensitive, and cooperative; plays better with others.

Spell for Today – Walk Backwards Return Spell and Concentrate Candle Spell

 

Wednesday is a good day to focus on getting over any slumps you may have. This day is considered the middle of the work week; and many people find themselves very tired by this point. That is why this day is a great day to do refresh, refrain, return, wake-up, and concentration spells. It is, also, another good day for meditation.

 

Walk Backwards Return Spell

Things you will need:
1 candle (any color)
1 lighter or match
Your body

Place a candle in front of you on a fire-safe surface. Sit or stand in a comfortable position in front of the candle and close your eyes for about three minutes. During the three minutes, think about what you want returned to you and how that item makes you feel. After the three minutes or so, get up and take twelve steps backwards and say this chant three times:

“Backwards walk.
Missing something yearned.
When I turn around,
It will be returned.”

After doing this, turn around three times, clockwise, and stop. Now, go blow out the candle, and your item should be returned to you soon.

 

Concentrate Candle Spell

Items needed:
1 small white candle
1 small blue candle
1 orange candle

Take all three candles and place them on a fire-proof surface in front of you. Light both candles. Take three deep breaths. Lightly tap your forehead with one of your fingers for a minute or so. You should feel a slight tingly sensation on your forehead. Now, look at the three candles and say this chant three times:

“I have the time.
I have the wait.
This should help me concentrate.
When it’s white And it’s blue,
It will start my mind a new.”

After you have finished, blow out the candles. From this point on, when you have problems concentrating, think of those white, blue, and orange candles, and the tingle in your forehead; and your mind should be better able to concentrate.

Ship Tracks over the Pacific Ocean

Image Credit: NASATerraMODISText: Raymond Shaw (MTU)

Explanation: What are those unusual streaks? Some images of planet Earth show clear bright streaks that follow the paths of ships. Known as ship tracks, these low and narrow bands are caused by the ship’s engine exhaust. Water vapor condenses around small bits of exhaust known as aerosols, which soon grow into floating water drops that efficiently reflect sunlight. Ship tracks were first discovered in 1965 in Earth images taken by NASA’s TIROS satellites. Multiple ship tracks are visible across the featured image that was captured in 2009 over the Pacific Ocean by the MODIS instrument on NASA’s Terra satellite. Inspired by ship-tracks, some scientists have suggested deploying a network of floating buoys in the worlds’ oceans that spray salt-aerosol containing sea-water into the air so that, with the help of the wind, streams of sunlight-reflecting clouds would also form. Why do this? These human-made clouds could reflect so much sunlight they might help fight global warming.
