Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions after 5:30 PM EDT today (2:30 PM PDT). The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Avoid being righteous today, which is a temptation. When it comes to politics, religion or your personal beliefs, you might want to challenge others, especially because you have the support of someone older or more experienced. But what is the point? A pyrrhic victory? Remember: There are none so deaf as those who are wearing headphones.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Disputes about some kind of financial arrangement, shared property, taxes, insurance matters or an inheritance might arise today. Perhaps, you will appeal to the authority of someone older or in power. More likely, you will gain ground by joining the efforts of coworkers.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You might feel annoyed with a close friend or partner today, especially about traditional beliefs or politics. Instead, focus on fun-loving, entertaining diversions. Why not? Accept invitations to party and socialize. Enjoy sports events and fun activities with kids. Have fun!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a lovely day to entertain at home or to invite people to congregate where you live. You might show off new ways you have improved your home. Admittedly, disputes concerning pets, your health, or your job might sidetrack you. Don’t waste your energy. Go with what works.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Parents might find relations with their kids to be challenging today. It happens. It certainly goes with the territory. Assistance from someone older might help. Meanwhile, interactions with siblings, relatives and neighbours will be upbeat. Enjoy a short trip.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a good day for financial matters plus business and commerce. In fact, you might resurrect old ideas or finish a project, which ultimately leads to increased earnings or a financial boon for you. Don’t waste time on domestic squabbles, especially with female relatives. You don’t need this.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You like harmony around you. (This is why you are a people pleaser.) Avoid arguments with daily contacts today, which might easily arise. Instead, focus on relations with partners and close friends, which will be warm and supportive. Avoid disagreeable people because life is short (and fat.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Steer clear of financial disputes, because they might ruin your day instead. Instead, enjoy quiet times with yourself and a few others in a private way. Good news about your health, as well as fun times with pets, will be a source of pleasure. Be happy!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is the classic day for an irritable exchange with a friend or partner because you’re both annoyed or you disagree with each other. Try to set that aside so that you can focus on interactions with clubs or groups, or a friend who is creative and artistic. This will save your day.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It might be tough dealing with someone today, especially because you feel you can’t speak up. (You’re doing a slow boil behind the scenes, which is frustrating.) Fortunately, relations with parents, bosses and family members are positive. Go with what works.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Difficulties with kids, social situations or sports events might arise today. Your best option is to sidestep these difficult situations, which will only lead to some grief. Instead, talk to relatives, daily contacts and siblings because these interactions will be upbeat and pleasant.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Family squabbles and domestic challenges might take place today. Avoid these if you can. Ironically, this is an excellent day for business and commerce plus financial negotiations. If you play your cards right, money, gifts and goodies will come to you. Go where your bread is buttered! (This is a no-brainer.)

If Your Birthday Is Today

The 38th US President Jimmy Carter (1924) shares your birthday today. You are dignified. Even though are charming and likable, you like to be in control. You are confident and proud of your efforts to work hard. This year you reap the benefits of all your hard work because others notice your talents. You might be in the spotlight!

OTHILA

Separation, Withdrawal, Heir

This is the time of your ways separating. Old skin must shed, outdated relationships need to be given up.  If this rune appears, a “molting” is necessary.  Othila is a rune of the radical separation.  Obedience and probably also withdrawal is necessary – to know, when and how you need to withdraw, and to actually have the determination, to do it.  Property is also an aspect of this rune, because Othila is the rune of the acquisition and profit.  The profit however, that “heir”, which you receive, could likely be made of something that you need to abandon. This process can be especially hard if that what needs to be abandoned is something of your cultural heir and backing.  Not ‘rigidly’ but rather like a ‘river’ is the correct attitude to have.  And yet – you have to wait that the universe begins to act.

Ogham

Click here for more information about the Mor Ogham symbol from druidogham. wordpress.com

Mor

Change, shift, the sea, maps, realm of the subconscious, great undercurrents

Tree: Witch hazel (Hamamelis spp.)

Letter: X

“Sea change” is a term for profound or holistic change. Change is the foundation of existence. The interplay of opposing forces creates and destroys ad infinitum. Mor bookends the concept of change introduced by the first Ogham, Beith. The intention that sowed an action reaped a habit, the habit reaped a character, and the character reaped a destiny. The new track in space has been laid and change is inevitable.

When you draw Mor, look for the changes in and around you. These are not necessarily good or bad. Often, drawing this Ogham can mean something as basic as “oh look, the season of Spring is arriving”. Mor doesn’t have to indicate any kind of drama, although it could. Mor calls out to you to look at overarching influences, new factors or people, and to examine the permutations and possibilities of how they affect the environment.

Mor is a bird’s eye view of opposing forces in our lives rather than being upswept by the random forces that weave in and out of our daily existences. Understanding your own subconscious gives you the ability to calmly deal with challenges that come your way. The work you do on understanding yourself is the sails you build on your boat in the great sea of life. You still need to figure out which way the wind is blowing, of course, but knowing a thing or two about your own position, your tendencies, desires, faults, and strengths will give you the power you need to dodge rocks and survive storms.

Questions when you draw Mor: …

The Superior Person curbs his anger and sheds his desires.

To be frugal and content is to possess immeasurable wealth within.
Nothing of value could be refused such a person.

This is an occasion for downsizing to fighting trim.
Simplicity and economy are strong defenses against the slings and arrows of Outrageous Fortune.

Four

In numerology, the 4 is the number of strength and stability.

The Numerology Meaning of the Number 4: THE SALT OF THE EARTH

The chief characteristics of the number 4 are dependability, productivity, punctuality, and obedience. It is trustworthy, patient, conventional, and traditional.

People with prominent 4’s can seem dispassionate and solitary, preferring to toil in quiet obscurity. They work steadily and are extremely persistent, finding deep satisfaction in their accomplishments.

The 4 favors results over financial reward and public recognition. They are humble, often dress conservatively, and don’t clash with their surroundings.

Ω

The 4 does not like to draw attention but will fight tooth and nail if you try to muscle in on their territory.

They believe in effort and control and are goal-oriented, but their goals are often simple and down to earth. The 4 is not a visionary but notices every detail. They are capable, proficient, and they don’t cut corners – the perfect employee.

Looking at the shape of the number 4. you will notice the hard angles are a symbolic representation of this rather straight-edged workaholic – less creative or artistic, but excellent at working with their hands.

Many artisans and skilled laborers have the 4 prominent in their charts. The 4 works hard and is a good provider but demands discipline and loyalty. They do not do well in chaotic environments and are prone to panic attacks if it appears they don’t have things well under control.

The 4 does not like to make waves, but values moral convictions and doesn’t back down when convinced they are “doing the right thing.”

However, they can also be intolerant and, when faced with people from other cultures, countries or races, their insecurity and fear of the unknown can make them uncomfortable, even prejudiced at the extreme.

Many 4s choose a career in the military where their disciplined nature is right at home – and do exceptionally well when they are assigned duties that include administrative and organizational work.

As with any number, there are contradicting traits within the 4. For instance, while they are not particularly social or fun-loving, the 4 often reveals an entertainingly dry sense of humor. Further, although they can be strict parents, the 4 is extremely devoted and will walk through fire to get their children what they need.

My description of the 4 is, not surprisingly, almost the exact opposite of my description of the 3. This is to be expected, as each number is a counterpoint to the one that directly precedes it. The 2 is the polar opposite of the 1, the 3 displays traits that are directly opposed to those of the 2, and so on. Keep in mind, if you have a 4 in your core numbers, your other core numbers will affect the influence of the 4.

Angel number 4 thus has the meaning of angel support. If you ask angels for help, they will surely help you.

Be sure to receive the support of these angels and turn that support into your own energy and move forward. The power received from the angel will eventually become important to you.

The angels are cheering that you have done a lot of hard work and you haven’t failed. That’s why so many angels are protecting you around you so that your life goes well in the future.

Scientists Studying Earth’s Trees Issue a Stark Warning to Humanity

From soaring coastal redwoods to dinosaur-era Wollemi pines and firs that make the perfect Christmas trees, even our most revered woody plants are in an awful lot of trouble.

But it turns out that losing some species won’t just endanger local forests; it will threaten entire ecosystems, says a new study.

Last year, a global assessment titled State of the World’s Trees found a shocking one-third of all tree species are currently teetering on the edge of existence.

This amounts to about 17,500 unique tree species that are endangered.

That’s more than double the number of all threatened tetrapods (mammals, birds, amphibians, and reptiles).

Some trees are so rare that only a single known individual remains, like the lonesome palm in Mauritius, Hyophorbe amaricaulis.

In a new paper, the same team of researchers behind the State of the World’s Trees reports issues a “warning to humanity” about the consequences of these losses, backed by 45 other scientists from 20 different countries.

Conservation biologist Malin Rivers from Botanic Gardens Conservation International and colleagues outline the many impacts these losses will have on our economies, livelihoods, and food.

Most of our fruit comes from trees, as do many nuts and medicines, with non-timber products amounting to about US$88 billion worth of trade.

In the developing world, 880 million people rely on firewood for fuel, and 1.6 billion people live within 5 kilometers (3 miles) of a forest, relying on them for food and income.

All up, trees contribute about US$1.3 trillion annually to the global economy, yet…

Equinox Sunrise Around the World

Collage Image Copyright: Luca Vanzella

Explanation: A planet-wide collaboration resulted in this remarkable array of sunrise photographs taken around the September 2022 equinox. The images were contributed by 24 photographers, one in each of 24 nautical time zones around the world. Unlike more complicated civil time zone boundaries, the 24 nautical time zones are simply 15 degree longitude bands corresponding to 1 hour steps that span the globe. Start at the upper right for the first to experience a sunrise in the nautical time zone corresponding to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) + 12 hours. In that time zone, the photographer was located in Christchurch, New Zealand. Travel to the west by looking down the column and then moving to the column toward the left for later sunrises as the time zone offset in hours from UTC decreases. Or, you can watch a video of September 2022 equinox sunrises around planet Earth.

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.

MANNAZ

The Self

Remain modest – that is the right of the oracle.  Be in the world, but not from the world.  Stay receptive to impulses, that come out of the divine in the inner and outer sphere.  Seek  to live the usual life in an unusual manner.

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.

Huan / Dissolution

Wind carries the Mists aloft:
Sage rulers dedicated their lives to serving a Higher Power and built temples that still endure.

The King approaches his temple.
Success if you stay on course.
You may cross to the far shore.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

Walls meant to protect have instead separated and isolated.
Your defenses have kept you apart from those whom you most need to touch.
Whatever the reason for discord between you, it is time to lay down your arms.
Dispel the inflexible demands and fears of the Mind so that you may reunite in the Heart.
If you have begrudged, forgive.
If you have torn down, repair.
If you have injured, heal.
If you have judged, pardon.
If you have grasped, let go.

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.

It would be fair to say that you also use this feature for other purposes. Sensual component of…
