When you have the means to do so, you like to enjoy yourself.

Anglo-Saxon and Frisian Rune

From The Rune Site – Anglo-Saxon and Frisian Runes

The reason I have combined the Frisian and Anglo-Saxon rune sets together are due to their close relation to each other. Originally the Frisian set was created by expanding the Elder Futhark set by four runes (the first four listed below – Ac, Os, Yr and Ior). Then later one new rune, Ear, was added to form the Anglo-Saxon rune set sometimes called the Anglo-Saxon Futhork.

It should also be noted that the Elder Futhark rune Ansuz was renamed Aesc for these sets.

Ac

Sound: “a” as in “sat”
Stands for: Oak Tree
Casting meaning: This rune symbolizes great potential power and is a rune of great usefulness. Ac channels the power of strong, continuous growth from small beginnings to a powerful and mighty climax.

Witch’s Rune

From psychic-revelation.com

The Crossed Spears

Keywords: Arguments, negativity.

Meanings: The Crossed Spears is a rune that signifies arguments and negative events. Often this can be of an upsetting nature, rather like the Tower card in the tarot. It is not all bad though. If it is near to a positive rune it may indicate the end of a quarrel and healing. Especially if it lies near the Rings. This rune could mean a promotion at work, or a fast recovery if you’re ill.

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.

Questions when you draw Phagos: …

Success if you stay on course.

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.

October 30, 2022 Birthday Horoscope

Happy Birthday! May the next year of your life be better than the past year!  

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope from sunsigns.org 

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS OCTOBER 30, you are a Scorpion who loves to learn. Life’s lessons come in many forms and not just by observing can you learn all of them. More often than not, you should be a participant. Those of you born today are highly sensitive and passionate.

Yes… you have a cool exterior but you can be roused. Depending on what’s going on, this could be a good thing. Everyone should be passionate about something. It’s only when you fall short of being perfect, do you pout.

The 30th of October birthday personality have a tendency to work all the time. You could use a treat. Why not take your family on a road trip. This could be fun as it helps you to connect with your family. You, as do so many others, stay at home and take care of your offspring. Too bad there’s no award for that.

The October 30 birthday horoscope shows that you are composed and even refined. The truth of the matter is that you are highly responsive. You mainly are concentrating on your money and how to make some more. You feel that you have got to be on top of things at all times.

This Scorpio birthday generally don’t settle for second best. You want top shelf or nothing at all. It’s your prerogative. Besides, you work for what you want out of life. There’s nothing wrong with being successful and living a comfortable lifestyle.

If today October 30 is your birthday, you have an adventurous side to you that people admire. As someone born on this day, you love to travel and to familiarize yourself with other cultures. It’s a part of learning and you like to have hands on experience.

As the October 30th zodiac sign is Scorpio, you are generally smart individuals but should listen more to your instincts. You have a sixth sense that will guide you in some decisions but only if you let it.

Undeniably, the October 30 birthday personality is someone who’s incredibly attractive, flexible and capable. More than anything, you want your freedom. You are not likely to be happy without it. You have a need to create and usually, your muse will come in quiet times. Communication with others may come with ease but occasionally, you are moody and your attitudes will change in a heartbeat.

In love, you tend to be idealistic, sensitive but strong. You don’t like your business in the streets either… you’re a private person. Therefore, public display of affection could be considered a no-no. However, you in a direct and more private setting can be a force to be reckoned with. Those born on October 30 are people who want and enjoy the constitution of marriage.

What your birthday says about you is that you’re certainly a fun person to be around. You are witty and playful. Being around your friends and family gives you joy and pleasure. You don’t expect much from them and this seems to be the key to bonding with them. Typically, you are not judgmental. The only drawback to this is that you can be overly protective. Then we see another side of the calculated scorpion.

You may feel that learning comes from all different directions and school can’t teach you everything. You believe that you can go at it on your own. It’s not necessary for you to fulfill the American dream of a white picket fence, spouse, children and a dog to be successful. For you, personal satisfaction comes in occupations that allow you to communicate. Careers like writing, speaking and television could be your ticket to the high road, foretells the 30 October birthday astrology.

Your health is normally easy to maintain as you like growing your own food. You stick to a diet that is high in fiber and protein but low in calories. As a norm, you do a body cleanse to rid yourself of daily toxins put in by pollutants in the air and by the additives in your drink and food when you can’t eat right. However, when it comes to going to the gym and working out, this is not your style. You like to be active but usually, it’s not by physical exercise.

The October 30 is birthday meanings show that you are perceptive, compliant, and charismatic. You could be a curious soul however, you love to learn. Learning, you feel, is not just textbook calculations but real life situations. You love with such an intensity that you can’t be denied the lusty pleasures you so dream of. As a Scorpio born on this day, you are not especially fond of the classroom.

-Make paper baskets (use yarn as a handle) and place real or silk flowers in each basket. Hang them on door knobs of neighbors and family members but don’t let them know you did it!

-If you have children, make necklaces out of diasies and place them around their necks for the day to bring protection to them.

-Begin planting for the season.

-Create a MayPole and dance around it with your family or friends.

-Make a dish of fruits, berries, nuts and leave in the wood for the animals and fae folk to enjoy

– This is a night for bonfires, torch-lit processions and the high revelry of witches, preferably in high places. It is prime time for the Great Rite, a night (like Samhain) when the Goddess descends into women. Cailleach Beara (Cally Berry, Brighid’s crone aspect) turns to stone this night and does not to return until Samhain. Beltane Eve also marks the setting of the Pleiades
