Moon Alert

After 8 AM EDT today (5 AM PDT), there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The New Moon occurs in Cancer at 10:52 PM EDT (7:52 PM PDT).

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is the perfect time to make resolutions about how to improve your home and your family relationships. It will be easy to do this because you are in such a positive frame of mind today. Enjoy the company of relatives, siblings and neighbours.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

We are gregarious creatures. “No man is an island.” The New Moon today is the ideal time to think about how you communicate to others. Are you clear in all your communications? Meanwhile, this is a great day for business, finance and boosting your income. Ka-ching!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Use today’s New Moon to resolve how to better handle your money and your possessions. If you think money is dirty, you won’t hang on to it. Money is energy. Meanwhile because this is a popular day for you, you shine in group situations!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is the perfect day to take a realistic look in the mirror to see how you can improve the image you create on your world. Ideas? Haircut? Wardrobe change? Enjoy a moment of solitude if you can find it.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today’s New Moon makes you feel in touch with your spiritual values. We all believe in something. Even if we believe that we don’t believe in anything. That’s what we believe. Enjoy group interactions and hanging out with friends, especially creative, artistic people.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is the best day of the year to think about the friendships you have or don’t have; and what kind of friend you are to others. The bottom line is if you want to have friends, you have to be friendly! Today you impress bosses and VIPs.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today is the only New Moon that is at the top of your chart all year. This means it’s time to think about your life direction. Are you headed where you want to go? Where do you want to be in five years? Travel has a strong appeal.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Take a moment to make some resolutions about how to expand your world. Can you travel? Can you take courses or get further education to enrich your life? What can you do to feel more fulfilled? Meanwhile, gifts and wealth might come your way.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today is a wonderful opportunity to set intentions about debt, inheritances and anything that involves jointly-owned property. How can you clean up loose details? How can you resolve things so that you are happy with the result?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today’s New Moon is opposite your sign. (This happens only once a year.) This is an ideal chance to see how you can improve your closest relationships, partnerships or friendships. This is important. These relationships affect your happiness — therefore, make them work.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This might be the best day of the year to take a moment and make a resolution about how to improve your efficiency in whatever you do. By extension, how can you improve your health as well? What can you do to really pull your act together? Meanwhile, romance and social opportunities delight!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A healthy balance between work, play and creative expression is ideal. We are a work-oriented society. If our creative talents don’t earn money, they are dismissed. Today’s New Moon is the perfect time to ask yourself what makes you happy? (This is also a great day to entertain at home.) Invite someone over!

June 28, 2022 Current Moon Phase Digest

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious, you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else was born.

From MoonGiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

The star also represents money, jewelries, bonuses, personal glory and even love affair. It means spiritual gifts. If you are in a tight situation at the moment or in difficult times – this rune means that all your trials are off. You will be out of the wood pretty soon! Key words: joy, fulfillment of desires, achievement of objectives, right way, blessing beyond, material benefits, glory, success, freedom, encouraging.

Ogham

From LearnReligions.com – Celtic Ogham

T stands for Tinne, or Teine, the Holly tree. This evergreen plant is connected to immortality, unity, courage, and the stability of hearth and home. Pronounced chihnn-uh by the Celts, the wood of the Holly was often used in the construction of weapons, and is known as a plant of warriors and protectors.

In the pre-Christian British Isles, the Holly was often associated with protection–planting a hedge around your home would keep malevolent spirits out, thanks in no small part to the sharp spikes on the leaves. In Celtic myth, the concept of the Holly King and the Oak King symbolizes the changing of the seasons, and the transition of the earth from the growing time to the dying season.

When Christianity moved into the Celtic lands, the new religion associated the Holly plant with the story of Jesus. The poky spikes on the leaves represent the crown of thorns worn by Jesus on the cross, and the bright red berries symbolize his blood.

Tinne Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Hang a sprig of Holly in your home to protect your family in your absence. Soak the leaves in spring water under a full moon, and then use the water as a blessing for people or items you wish to protect. There is strength to be found in standing together, and ultimately protection comes from honor and trust.

Magical Aspects: Develop the ability to respond quickly and wisely to your intuition. Learn to overcome and adapt to new situations, and to respond immediately to changes in your spiritual environment. Trust your instinct, but don’t let your heart rule over your head.

Hexagram Two/2

K’un / Receptive Force

Earth above and Earth below:
The Earth contains and sustains.
In this situation, the Superior Person should not take the initiative; he should follow the initiative of another.
He should seek receptive allies in the southwest; he should break ties with immovable allies in the northeast.

Responsive devotion.
Receptive influence.
Sublime Success if you keep to your course.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

This is a time for dealing with reality as it is, not as you would have it be.
If you realize that in this situation you are the receptor, not the transmitter of the stimulus, you will find yourself reaching goals that seemed unattainable under your own steam.
If you persist in futile efforts to be the Shaper rather than the Shaped, you will completely miss this unique opportunity.

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.

Negative qualities

The most obvious negative qualities of the Two are the disposition to dependent position, appeasement, depression and indecisiveness.

Being passive can cause undue flexibility in matters of principle which should inevitably lead to failures in all spheres of life, and as a consequence, resentment of oneself, anger and alienation.

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

Keywords for angel number “1”

“new start”

Angel number 1, which means “turning point,” also means “new start.” When you count, you start with 1, and the New Year also starts on January 1.

In other words, 1 in the angel number means a new start of things. That new start may not always be a good thing, but if you think positively, it will be a happy start for you.

“Independence”

The number 1 means “independent and independent.” Each person is independent and no two people are the same. In other words, the concept of one being independent of “1”.

The message that the number 1 sends to you has the meaning of “Stand independently with your own will” or “Stand firmly on your own legs and be independent of a spoiled environment”.

“Connection”

Since any number is always divisible by one, the number one also means “we are one human.” Of course, each person is an independent entity, another person.

However, since every human being can think and communicate with each other in the same way, Angel Number 1 has the meaning of “connection between people.” It’s a good idea to take care of your connections when you have a problem.

“thinking”

The number 1 also has the meaning of thinking. Humans think about various things, but their ideas vary depending on the individual and the emotion at that time. The meaning of thought contained here means “discard negative emotions and have positive thoughts.”

If you want to fulfill something or get something now, it is important to put positive thoughts and …

Mercury from Passing BepiColombo

Image Credit & LicenseESAJAXABepiColomboMTM

Explanation: Which part of the Moon is this? No part — because this is the planet Mercury. Mercury’s old surface is heavily cratered like that of Earth’s Moon. Mercury, while only slightly larger than Luna, is much denser and more massive than any Solar System moon because it is made mostly of iron. In fact, our Earth is the only planet more dense. Because Mercury rotates exactly three times for every two orbits around the Sun, and because Mercury’s orbit is so elliptical, visitors on Mercury could see the Sun rise, stop in the sky, go back toward the rising horizon, stop again, and then set quickly over the other horizon. From Earth, Mercury’s proximity to the Sun causes it to be visible only for a short time just after sunset or just before sunrise. The featured image was captured last week by ESA and JAXA‘s passing BepiColombo spacecraft as it sheds energy and prepares to orbit the innermost planet starting in 2025.
