Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today is a mixed bag; nevertheless, it is challenging! Your ruler, fiery Mars is in your sign at odds with big daddy Pluto, which can encourage ruthless and underhanded activity. Tread carefully! Don’t do anything you will later regret. Fortunately, socializing with others, for the most part, is positive and friendly.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Although family relations and issues at home are warm and supportive today; nevertheless, something going on behind the scenes might need your attention. (If you think something fishy is going on – it is!) Be wary of anything that looks like it is not in your best interests.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a curious day, and heaven knows, you are someone who is constantly curious. In many ways, relations with siblings, relatives and neighbours are positive and caring today. However, power struggles with a group or a friend are likely. Keep your nose clean. Take the high road.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You have a lot of energy today that you can use to skilfully deal with power struggles and disagreements. You might have to confront someone else who challenges you. If so, make sure that your actions are aboveboard. Avoid the temptation to be ruthless or aggressive.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign dancing nicely with Jupiter and Venus, which promotes good feelings within you, hence — friendly relations with others. Nevertheless, because Mars is at odds with Pluto, disagreements about controversial issues are likely. Stay with the positive energy.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Even though you might be caught up in power struggles about shared property, inheritances or debates about shared responsibilities; nevertheless, you are capable of being positive in how you handle things. This is because inwardly, you’re happy, which means you won’t overreact.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today is a mixed bag. You might find relations with partners and close friends to be aggravating because some kind of power struggle is taking place. Frankly, it could get nasty. Because of this you might find relief talking to a friend or someone in a group. (Accept support wherever you find it.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You look positive in the eyes of others today. In fact, bosses, parents and VIPs are impressed! Meanwhile, something related to your job, or a pet, or possibly even your health is aggravating you. It might be about work-related travel. Use your coping skills.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Disagreements about taking care of kids as well as arguments related to sports or social situations are likely today. And yet, these will only take place with some people in your life, while other relationships are not affected and are running smoothly. And so it goes. Be patient.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be patient with family members today because arguments and disagreements will be par for the course. Fortunately, financial matters are favoured. You might get the practical support from someone that you want. Perhaps it’s a matter of who calls the shots?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Go gently when talking to others today because you might be a bull in a china shop without realizing it. Basically, you want your way. Or perhaps you have to confront someone else who wants their way? Today your wisest course might be to agree to disagree.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Emotional power struggles about possessions or money might take place today. Guard against compulsive behaviour or sudden urges to do something that might not be good for you in the long run. Resist the temptation to give into a passing desire that is questionable.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor, comedian Dan Ackroyd (1961) shares your birthday today. You are a sensitive, loving person who values family and friends. You are intuitive, imaginative and you have an excellent memory. This is a year of learning and teaching for you. Time spent in solitude to develop yourself personally and increase your knowledge will be well spent. Excitement increases toward the end of the year.

FERTILITY, NEW LIFE

This rune is a unique representation of a new beginning in life. It also signifies the right of people to start a brand-new page in their life. It shows completion but also means fertilizing the soil to achieve ultimate liberation.

The Moon

Keywords: Change.

Meanings: The “x” marks represent the four main phases of the moon and so you can expect changes to happen within the next 28 days. This is a particularly feminine stone and often appears in response to questions about women’s issues. The Moon rune is a messenger. It is telling you to be aware that major changes are coming to your life. Consult the runes closest to it to determine whether those changes are negative or positive.

Koad

Grove, convergence, ecosystem, review, crossroads, harmony

Tree: Collection of various trees

Letter: Ch

Koad represents a point on the map of your life and cause to reflect on what got you there as well as where you are headed. Many factors conspired to bring you where you are today. An entire ecosystem exists in and around you that is as unique as a fingerprint. This ecosystem is neither entirely good nor entirely bad, which is why this Ogham and the rest of the Forfedha (Oir, Uilleand, Phagos, and Mor) are too complex to be read as well or ill-dignified. Koad is one particular harmony/dissonance at this point in your life. If your life is going well in some respects, this could mean a feeling of competence and capability or a feeling of love and being loved. If you are in a time of stress, Koad may represent the s**tstorm whirling around you. Or all of the above could be going on at once.
You are here to learn a certain set of unique lessons in this lifetime. There are many roads you can take any given day, and like one of those old Choose Your Own Adventure books, each road has its own outcome. Sometimes two seemingly different roads have the same outcome. Koad indicates a feeling of responsibility and ownership of your decisions, however, other factors you cannot control should be taken into account as well, such as family history, social norms, laws, and the era in which you dwell.

Many people do not realize that orchestral symphonies are major works that are frequently an hour in length. A symphony is an elaborate ABA form (think Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on steroids) with mini-breaks between three sections. If your life is a symphony, imagine Koad as one moment in one measure of a huge programmatic work of music. What harmony have you achieved? Are you in a slow or fast movement?

Questions when you draw Koad…

Numerology

From worldnumerology.com

The Numerology Meaning of the Number 9: GLOBAL AWARENESS

The 9 highlights a mathematical and philosophical observation that is unique and revealing. From a purely mathematical perspective, the 9 stands apart.

Here’s why:

When you multiply any number by 9, then add the resulting digits and reduce them to a single digit, it always becomes a 9. For example, 6 x 9 = 54, reduce 54 to a single digit by adding them together: 5 + 4 = 9. Similarly, 8 x 9 = 72, and 7 + 2 = 9. Or 23 x 9 = 207, 2 + 0 + 7 = 9, and so forth.

There is nothing coincidental about this peculiarity.

Try it. Any number, no matter how large, multiplied by 9 reduces to 9. From a numerological perspective, the 9 simply takes over, like the infamous body snatchers. Any number that was initially increased by a factor of 9 loses its own identity and instead takes on the characteristics of the 9.

No other number has that quality.

A different, but no less distinctive attribute of the 9 happens when you add it to any other number, then reduce that number to a single digit. In this case, it always comes back to itself as if nothing was added at all – it doesn’t change anything from the initial single digit value.

For example, 5 + 9 = 14, 1 + 4 = 5. Or 7 + 9 = 16, 1 + 6 = 7. 24 (which reduces to 6) + 9 = 33, 3 + 3 = 6. Again, have some fun, try it on a bunch of numbers.

When multiplying, the 9 takes over, but when adding, the 9 does nothing.

For a math junkie like myself, this is beauty. It symbolically touches the core of the magic that underlies this creation. But enough about math, let’s look at the personality of this unique number.

The highest of the cardinal numbers, the 9 is the most worldly and sophisticated of all.

The 9 has similarities with the 6 – including its shape (turned upside down). However, where the 6 is a symbol of love and compassion directed to people close to them (friends, family, the local community), the 9 offers love and care to the world at large.

The 9, more than any other number, has global consciousness – a reservoir of giving with a generous downward spout.

The 9 lives in the world and understands the connection between all people. Individuals with this number are humanitarians who see no difference between their next-door neighbor and people from different cultures on the other side of the world. The 9 is the least judgmental of all numbers, the most tolerant and the most conscious.

The 9 is overwhelmingly loving and empathetic.

People often regard those with a strong 9 as majestic, graceful, and elevated, but closely connected with the rest of humankind. At the same time, they can be hard to reach, seem aloof, and tend to float above the small-minded issues that can be upsetting to others. People either love or loathe 9 individuals, but find it difficult to deny the respect they demand. 9s have impeccable taste, are talented, creative, and usually quite eloquent when they express themselves.

The 9 is called the “Mother Theresa” number because it doesn’t hesitate to rectify abuse. More importantly, it does not seek credit for giving assistance. Just as the number 9 added to another number does not force its way into the sum (the sum stays the same) – 9 individuals never force themselves upon others when trying to help.

When circumstances require, 9s can be a powerful force, strong enough to take over and bend others to their will (just as the number 9 does when used to multiply any other number, where it takes control). However, the 9 is not a leader in the same way the 1 and the 8 are; its influence comes from the higher realms of philosophy and justice. A 9 does not use force or cunning, they just change your mind!

Although they are generally selfless, a 9 is often prosperous. This contradiction helps illustrate the true nature of the 9. Where an 8 becomes financially successful by focusing on the potential reward from an undertaking, 9s earn financial reward by utterly ignoring the monetary potential of an endeavor, the exact opposite of the 8.

As for matters of the heart, the 9 is not particularly romantic.

The 9 can be a difficult romantic partner, not only because they are demanding, but because you never know to what extent you’ve managed to reach them emotionally. 9s tend to hide their hearts, so even after knowing them for many years, the connection can still seem a bit distant.

They are loyal friends but will not allow themselves to become vulnerable. The most telling attribute of the 9 is the always subtle, difficult to pinpoint feeling there is more to them than meets the eye. They carry depth and intuition, and are at all times aware of their surroundings, like a person with over-developed peripheral vision.

As with any number, the 9 has a dark side.

A 9 can be condescending, arrogant, cold, and apathetic towards the suffering of others. When the 9 shows its dark side, it is egotistic, cruel, immoral, and completely untouchable. Unfortunately, it is easy for a 9 to fall into the dark side. For example, if they perceive themselves to be the victim of an injustice, they can turn vindictive, unforgiving, and malicious.

When the 9 appears as a cycle, it often denotes a finality, the completion of an era.

The 9 as a cycle is frequently seen as an indicator of death. This is simplistic and incorrect. When you are in the 9th period of a cycle (such as the 9th year of a 9-year cycle), it suggests you are in the final stages of that period or endeavor. It’s a time to empty your bucket and prepare for change, let go of the past, wrap up loose ends, and make way for new opportunities.

In Personal Year cycles, the 9 is always followed by the 1; every time you go through that two-year phase (from one year to the next) you go through a transformation of some kind. Look at any period in your life when you went through a 9 Personal Year followed by a 1 Personal Year and you will find this to be true. Then, look at your Essence and Transit cycles to learn what the fundamental nature of that transformation was.

Angel Number

From Informationseries.com – Click here for more information on Angel Number 114

The numbers that you often see in your daily life are called angel numbers. Angel numbers are a special combination of numbers and a message from the universe and angels.

Have you ever felt the vibrations inherent in numbers?

This time, we will introduce the meaning of angel number 114 and how to interpret it in love, work, marriage, and relationships.

What does the angel number 114 mean?

Angel number 114 states that “in order for you to achieve your true goals and ideals, you need spiritual self-development and concrete action.”

The angels advise that if you follow your plans and processes steadily, you can achieve material success.

The number 1 in angel number 114 symbolizes independence, leadership, spontaneity, the beginning of things, masculinity, achievement, success, and more. The master number 11, which is a combination of these numbers, is a mysterious number with intuition, high sensitivity, insight, clarity, and inspiration. In addition, the number 4 means accuracy, responsibility, patience, organization, effort, etc., and has the property of creating a solid framework in an empty space.

With all this in mind, Angel Number 114 shows that spiritual maturity and realistic success are on the same line. The angels advise that your desires can be fulfilled by approaching both mentally and physically.

Also, 6 (1 + 1 + 4 = 6), which is the sum of all three digits, also contains some messages. In addition to symbolizing beauty and harmony, 6 is a number that has idealism, perfectionism, empathy, compassion, and so on.

The combination of angel number 114 tells you that your steady efforts will be rewarded and lead to future outcomes and ideals.

Important message of angel number 114

Be positive in every aspect of your life and keep your motivation and image high. The number 4 is also a sign that the guardian angels are…

Spell for Today – Two Spells to Get Money that is Owed to You

To Make Someone Pay You What They Owe You

Items you need:
-3 needles

– piece of paper
-Honey
-Rose Honey
-a Candle

Write the name of the debtor on a piece of paper. Pierce the paper with the 3 needles. Place it in a glass containing equal parts of the two honeys. Place a green candle on the top of the jar and petition Elegua to help you get your money back.

To influence someone to repay a debt

Candles–Seven green (material gain) candles. You can use votives or tapers, it doesn’t matter but with cats, it may be safer to use the votives. You also need 4 yellow candles (gentle persuasion).
Oil–Jasmine
Herbs–Clove or cinnamon.
Incense-Ginger, jasmine, or allspice
Stones-Hematite and tiger’s eye

Timing to do spell–On the full moon or the waxing moon cycle, which is on the 16th of this month for the full moon.

Day-Saturday (which works out perfect this month.

Advice–be certain the debt is actually owed to you before doing this spell. If you think someone owes you a debt but it is not true, you will find yourself being forced to pay back any debts you owe. The spell also works for people who borrow things and don’t bother to return them.

Spellwork–Light the altar candles (altar candles are candles that represent the god and goddess, you can use two white votives or if you can get a hold of them, one gold and one silver candles each to represent them) and the incense. Inscribe the name of the person or people that owe you the debt on the green candles. Anoint the candles from the wick to the end. Set the green candles in the center of your working space. Set the yellow candles around the green ones, with the stones inside the circle. Light the green candles first, then the others. Say the chant 7 times. Leave the yellow candles to burn out completely. Dispose of the wax afterward. Burn only the 7 green candles each night. If you wish, you can burn new yellow candles each night until the 7 green candles are gone.

Chant–

“What was given in trust shall be freely returned
What was mine shall be mine again.”

Some of the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence Digest for Saturday

From WitchSwap.com

Saturday

is associated with Saturn (imagine that!), the planet that rules over responsibility, self-discipline, limitations and boundaries. Zodiac signs include Aquarius as well as Capricorn and Libra (due to the planetary correlation to Saturn). Elements corresponding to Saturday are Earth and Water. Saturn is the Roman God who is known for liberation and dissolution. Because of this, spells having to do with break ups (yeah, controversial and this isn’t’ an endorsement, either, just to be clear), ending a relationship or a partnership of any kind, business, personal, etc. as well as banishment, justice, swift karma and protection spells will all be favorable if performed on a Saturday. Gods/Goddesses: Saturn. Colors: Black and purple. **a black candle is great to use to banish negativity or to reverse a situation, it is not only used in baneful spells**. Angel: Barachiel

Gardening Moon Calendar – July 2022

July 2022 – Gardening by the Moon, Biodynamic Planting Guide

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.
