Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

A family member might surprise you today. Or perhaps, a small appliance will break down, or a minor breakage will occur because something unexpected will impact your home and private life. Stock the fridge so that you have food and drink on hand. This helps.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Pay attention to everything you say and do today because this is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign. Naturally, this includes verbal accidents as well as physical accidents. Oh yes, beware of foot-in-mouth disease. (Pulling your foot out of your mouth is the toughest yoga move.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Keep an eye on your money and your possessions today because something unexpected could impact them. For example, you might find money; you might lose money. Be smart and protect what you own against loss, theft or damage so that you have no regrets. Double check banking details.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you feel independent, even rebellious. There seems to be a lot of energy in the air, which makes you feel spontaneous and very highly tuned to whatever is going on around you. You might meet new friends today because interesting people will intrigue you.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a restless day for you. It’s been a busy week with appointments, errands and short trips. You’ve been full of ideas, and many of you have had the pleasure of seeing new places and meeting new faces. Even though you want to take a rest today -nevertheless, it’s hard to sit still.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might encounter someone interesting today. Possibly, someone you already know might do something that surprises you? Your involvement with a group might create feelings of independence. Perhaps you want to rebel against the status quo? You want change for the better.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Fortunately, you are courteous and diplomatic by nature. This means you can use your natural skills when dealing with authority figures or the police, if they surprise you in some way or catch you off guard. (Busted!”) Be cool and courteous and get to the bottom of things.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Travel plans might be interrupted, cancelled or delayed today. Likewise, issues related to publishing, the media, the law and medicine might also be interrupted or cancelled. (“Whaaat?”) Stay cool and observe things from behind the scenes. You might learn something.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Keep an eye on banking situations or anything to do with inheritances, shared property or insurance matters because something out of the blue might require your attention. (When it comes to money matters, you snooze – you lose.) Get your facts but avoid a fight or a standoff.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A close friend or partner might surprise you today by doing or saying something you least expect. Or perhaps, they are suddenly in a huff or rebellious about something? Meanwhile, keep in mind that you look attractive to everyone at this time. You make a great impression on others. Is this a problem?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Work interruptions are likely today. Some of you might have a sudden health concern. Pet owners should be vigilant and on top of things related to their pets because something unexpected could occur. Be aware of these possibilities, especially if travelling.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Parents take note: This is an accident-prone day for your kids, therefore, know where they are at all times. Meanwhile, social occasions might be cancelled or changed. Sports accidents are highly likely. A sudden invitation might come your way that surprises you. If so, say yes because this window of opportunity will be brief.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Tim Robbins (1958) shares your birthday today. You are perceptive, intelligent and observant. Your sharp mind is capable of complex analysis. You are a natural teacher who likes to inform. This year brings change and greater freedom into your world. Stay flexible and be ready to act fast. Enjoy travel and trust your intuition.

All Signs

We can use this week’s opportunities to accomplish what we want to do! There is lots of energy flying around helping us to communicate with others. This same energy will spur us to act, even competitively. Obviously, teamwork and negotiations are favoured. This wonderful blessing is because the Sun, Venus and Mars are supporting each other. (Admittedly mid-week, power struggles are likely because Pluto is in the picture. Pluto has never got over being demoted.) This is our chance to clean up whatever needs to be done. We will be like conquering Caesar! Veni vidi vacu. “I came, I saw, I vacuumed.”

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a wonderful week to work with others, especially partners and close friends. The major bonus is that you will find it easy to communicate with others. (Admittedly, on Wednesday there could be power struggles with authority figures.) Nevertheless, people will help you! And they will be happy to do so! This is a particularly strong week for writers, teachers, actors and people doing sales and marketing. Towards the end of the week, listen to the advice of someone older or more experienced, perhaps a friend or a member of a group, because this person will have valuable advice for you. Why not stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before you? It’s a better view!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You will be super active and productive this week! For starters, coworkers and helpers will be supportive. (That’s incredible, right there.) Furthermore, you feel motivated to boost your earnings and make money this week. (And you can!) Spend time making your work area look more attractive because this will pay off. It’s a good time to discuss agreements openly with others, including financial discussions. You may gain financial or other favours, quite unexpectedly, from a boss. Later in the week, get organized! You’ll have a sharp eye for detail. You will deal with serious matters in a persevering, dogged manner. “Tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” (African proverb.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Lucky you, because you have an edge over everyone. Oh yes, this is a week where everyone can accomplish a lot because the energy and motivation are at hand, and that’s half the battle. But in your case, fiery Mars is in your sign, which means you’re really pumped for action! Those of you work in the entertainment world, the hospitality industry, show business or anything to do with the arts, sports and working with children will particularly excel. That’s because all this high-energy is combined with a creative component. Therefore, accept invitations to party! Enjoy good times! It’s obvious that your theme for the week is, “Work hard, party hard!”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You will accomplish a lot in your personal life this week. That’s because everything to do with home, family and dealing with family members, especially a parent, will be a ripe ground for you to make improvements and get things done. It’s the ideal week to tackle home repairs and redecorating projects or renovations. Family discussions will go well (even though something mysterious looks like it’s going on behind the scenes). Late in the week, discussions about shared property and financial support from others will be solid; and you will very likely come out laughing all the way to the bank. Avoid power struggles midweek with a partner or close friend. (No animal was harmed in the writing of this column.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This week is fast-paced. You’re excited about new ideas and keen to share them with others. It’s a fabulous week for those who teach, write, act, or work in sales and marketing, because your words are magic. People want to listen to you! Meanwhile, you’re keen to study, learn, talk and enlighten others. Short trips and travel will delight. One reason you feel happy and upbeat is that you are able to appreciate who you are, and what you have, especially your daily surroundings. (It’s so easy to take our surroundings for granted. But this week, you’re observant.) A competition with a friend or a group might be happening. If so, you’re ready. (“Tough? Are you crazy? I spent a year as a crossing guard.”)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Financial issues are uppermost in your mind this week. For starters, you will work hard to earn money and boost your earnings. No question. You have moneymaking ideas; and in part, you’re motivated because you are spending money on beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. (“I couldn’t resist.”) Fortunately, you can attract money to you this week. (Would I kid you?) You can also influence bosses, parents, and VIPs in a positive way. You will things happen because others will support you because they will respond to your words, which will work like magic. Avoid power struggles with your kids midweek. Ditto for romance. By the end of the week, make solid, practical plans for your job and your health.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

How sweet it is! The Sun, Mercury and your ruler Venus are all in your sign this week dancing beautifully with energetic Mars and stern Saturn. The gang’s all here! This is a burst of energy that works for you! Furthermore, this energy is supportive and fortunate for you. (You wanted more?) Don’t hesitate to speak up and share your ideas. It’s a strong week for public speaking, lecturing and convincing others to agree with you. Be patient so that you can avoid power struggles with family members midweek. Don’t take the bait! Take the high road. At the end of the week, make practical plans regarding your kids or a future vacation. Looking good!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a curious week. Everyone else is running around with an outboard motor strapped to their butt! However, you will be productive even though you are watching from the sidelines. For starters, your ability to research anything and come up with nuggets of information is stellar. If you work for the police, security systems, and medical research, your will be effective in grabbing information you need to know. “Gotcha!” Avoid ego battles on Wednesday because they will serve you no purpose. Remember that this is a year where you can improve your job or get a better job. You can also improve your health. This means keep your eye on the ball. (Good week to buy wardrobe treasures.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a popular week for you! Everyone wants to see your face. In particular, you will hang out with younger people more than usual as well as creative, artistic types. Expect involvement with groups and organizations. In fact, you might be a leader or elected to a leadership position. Friends, spouses and partners will support you. Nevertheless, around Wednesday, you might have to defend your position about something. (Don’t let this get you down and don’t make a big deal about it.) This is good week to make plans for the future, especially plans for travel and vacations! You might spend time this week with someone who is very special to you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re in a lovely position this week because for starters, it’s a powerful, active, productive week for everyone. However, you are the only sign that has the Sun Mercury and Venus at the top of your chart! This means you’re running the show, and you’re getting credit for it. Bosses and people in authority will listen to you now. In fact, you will make such a great impression on VIPs, some of you will strike up a romance with a boss or an authority figure. Basically, people are impressed with your performance at work, which is why at the end of the week, conversations that could impact your earnings will take place. Meanwhile, continue to look for ways to improve your digs – because you can.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This week has the flavour that you like. There’s a theme of freedom that is present everywhere. You will relish a desire to explore and do anything to expand your world. Of course, if you can, you will travel! But if you can’t travel, you will learn new things, study new things, and talk to fascinating people from other cultures. Some will strike up a romance with someone “different.” (Don’t leave home without a rose clenched in your teeth.) Your involvement with your kids will be energizing. Certain creative demands on your time will make you hustle. Later in the week, a serious discussion about life belief systems, history, religion – something profound – will take place. You love this.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You can still hope to get richer this year. This week, you’re focused on shared finances, shared property and the wealth and resources of someone else. Obviously, people are supportive to you this year. They will give you gifts, practical things as well as money. Some of this wealth will come from a family member or someone at home. Just keep your pockets open and say, “Thank you” at the appropriate time. (Note: Whatever goes around, comes around, which means if gifts and goodies come your way now – you deserve them. Factoid.) At the end of the week, behind-the-scenes research, or a discussion with someone older might make you reassess your values about something. There’s always another point of view.

October 16, 2022 Birthday Horoscope

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

IF YOU ARE BORN ON OCTOBER 16, then you are the peacekeeper who has no trouble when it comes to meeting new people and making relationships last. It is in your nature to care about others. You could be an excellent “judge” of character because of this. Additionally, your zodiac sign is Libra, and you like to do things at the spur of the moment.

This Libra birthday people are naturally creative. You are charming and very likable. You understand life and that it will not be perfect all the time. As the negative 16 October, birthday personality traits show, you are moody.

Sometimes you have a lot to say, and then at times, you have nothing much to say. You are very observant as you watch how people respond to you with non-verbal clues and movements.

As the lover, the October 16th birthday born are romantic people. Generally, you are not idealistic individuals, but you have a way of expecting the best from people.

Although you are not totally blind, you have a way of bringing people into your life that could perhaps not have your best interest at heart. These people may be drama kings or queens or just extremely emotional individuals. However, if today is your birthday, you are a forgiving soul. You have the ability to go on without indecision. At the end of the day, this Libran is a practical person.

The 16th October birthday astrology predicts that for your life is a bowl of chocolate covered cherries. Besides the fact you love sweets, you love to socialize. Particularly, you learn from others and their experiences. You listen, so you will not have to go through the same things. When spending time alone, you will curl up with a good book or lie around watching movies.

But the October 16th birthday horoscope predicts that you do not eat right. Now and then, you will miss a meal or two, but usually, you eat too much of the wrong food. It would benefit you more if you had a “sit-down” lunch instead of “driving-thru” to get your meals. Your friends say that you do not put a lot of emphasis on how you look but rather it is how you feel that is important to you.

Did you know that what you put in your body could have an impact on how much energy you have or how you think and behave? A change in your diet could have positive effects on your way of life.

As far as your career is concerned, the October 16 birthday personality could pick and choose almost anything. A career as a writer is possible with your skills and communication talents. You are typically not afraid to quit a job either. You have the ability to get another job doing something totally different from what you were doing.

You love to travel. People born on this zodiac birthday should seek jobs that allow for freedom of movement. On an average, you budget your money. So being in between jobs does not stress you out like it would other people. You may feel that once the fun is over, you should move on.

The 16 October birthday meanings suggest that you are fair people. You are hardly judgmental but look for a partner who is equal. You tend to be forgiving in nature mainly because you want peace of mind.

Being with a loving and devoted partner is important to someone born today on October 16. When seeking a compatible career, you look for a position that is fun as well as rewarding. You may find that working for a cause is a part of your caring makeup.

Four of Pentacles

Pages 114 – 115

This is a card of security concerns. A person is focused on security of home and finances, saving money yet also having money to spend. This card indicates a cautious approach to friendship and socializing—not antisocial, but just careful and perhaps a little suspicious of the motives of others. Access to the home is restricted until a person is more familiar with would-be guests. Such a person does not appreciate uninvited or unexpected visitors to the home, nor a presumption of presumption of person familiarity. Reserved, careful, and self-contained, the person is possibly living in comfortable circumstances but has concerns about being taken advantage of and losing what has been gained. Financial security is of paramount importance, and this state is well entrenched. What is earned is kept in reserve, perhaps building up a savings account or being directed to a fund. This is the card of a private person, one who may be influential but also selective of associates. There may be a financial blockage or simply an unwillingness to spend money. This is a thrifty person, not so gift-giving is likely limited by price.

Nettle, an herb of security, home protection, and increasing finances, is kept by the door of the house. A turtle a symbol of security, abundance, defense, and relationships, withdraws into his shell.

Meaning: Security of home and finances, careful spending, saving money, budgeting, controlling personal access, feeling insecure, blocked expression, social reluctance, reserved nature, socially shy, suspicious of others’ motives, selective of associates, a small gift, endurance, pay raise, increase in income, income directed to private enjoyment of beauty.

Prompt Words: Financial security, self-contained, withdrawn.

UILLean

Ui (sometimes interpreted as Pe) is Uillean, the Honeysuckle. Associated with the manifestation of will, the Honeysuckle starts as a small seed and creeps along, growing and spreading over time. Honeysuckle twists and spirals up and over its surroundings, its soft yellow flowers releasing a sweet scent. It is the flower of unspoken desire, hidden needs, secret wants, but it also represents our goals of finding our true Self.

From a medicinal standpoint, the honeysuckle can be useful as well. Dioscorides says,

“the ripe seed gathered and dried in theshadow and drunk for four days together, doth waste and consume away the hardness of the spleen and removeth wearisomeness, helpeth the shortness and difficulty of breathing, cureth the hicket (hiccough), etc. A syrup made of the flowers is good to be drunk against diseases of the lungs and spleen.”

Uillean Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, it means you need to allow yourself the freedom to pursue your desire. If you’ve got hopes or dreams that are unattained, now is your time to start considering whether they’re remain just dreams, or become reality. Denying yourself the chance to enjoy life is unfair.

Magical Aspects: Take the time to experience joy, but make sure you stay true to your values and beliefs as well. In many Wiccan traditions, the Charge of the Goddess is quoted as a reminder of this: All acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. Another aspect of this symbol is that sometimes, mysteries which seem to be hidden may not be as hard to delve into as you think–sometimes, you’ve just been sidetracked by distractions.

Numerology

From Kasamba.com – Numerology

Eleven

While there are 10 main numbers from 0 to 9 which make up all the other numbers in the universe, there are also what are called master numbers in numerology. The number 11 is one of these master numbers. This number is unique as it draws from the traits of numbers 1 and 2, but with greater strength. This could be both good and bad as it may be difficult to find balance. Number 11s desire solitude and you are introverted in nature. The need to be creative is what drives you in your professional field, so a job where you are required to perform the same mundane tasks day in and day out won’t be best suited to you. You are a free thinker while being empathic and people are drawn to you.

Finally, it’s Sunday, the official day of rest. Not only do Christians acknowledge this day, but I’m sure many pagans appreciate this day, as well. Everyone needs rest and a lot of people need a good day to worship their creator(whomever or whatever that may be), however they deem fit to do so. With the Sun being the central theme of many ancient rituals, Sunday just seems to fit, in name and theory. Not only is it a good day to worship, it seems good to do more relaxed spells, such as sleep, dream, and rebirth.

 

A Spell for While you Sleep

You will need the following items for this spell:

Four lengths of appropriately coloured ribbon
which can be easily tied
Four pins
Your bed

Knot magic has a particular effect in ‘binding’ or fixing a spell in place and with the addition of colour it is possible to use ribbons to bring about a desired outcome. By using your own bed as a focus, your magical work can be done while you sleep. This is a very personal way of working and one which can bring particularly positive results.

If your bed has bedposts, simply knot a length of the correct colour ribbon for your purpose around each post.

Each time you do this, say:

With this knot of coloured ribbon

Bring to me the power hidden. Grant me that right Throughout this night.

If your bed has no posts then carefully pin the knotted ribbon to each corner using the same words.
Each night for two further nights touch each ribbon knot in turn and repeat the words above.

Leave the ribbons in place until you no longer feel the need for them. You can expect to have some fairly vivid dreams over the following three nights, which may help you to develop the qualities you seek. This spell allows your unconscious self to work in a protected space without the chatter of day to day matters.

 

To Protect a Sleeping Mind

You will need the following items for this spell:

Voice

Sleep is the time of dreams and visits. The following incantation repeated aloud at one’s bedtime will aid in the discouraging of unwanted visitors in the dreaming mind.

Before retiring for the night, repeat the following incantation aloud:

”Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea,

Draw close and circle round

Mine mind I clear and lend to sleep.

That sleep will use to rest the weary world

Let not the world and those unfavorable things within it

Visit upon mine mind unheralded

Uninvited visitors be sent away

Turned back

Turned back to the dark depths

Turned back to the sender whose name is never spoken

That thus he may gain strength

Gain strength and threaten those unable

Unable or unknowing

Unknowing or innocent

Innocents in the world

Sleeping as I sleep

Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea

Find favor and protect mine mind

Find favor and protect the innocents”.

This is best repeated nightly so as to protect ones mind and allow peaceful sleep and promote quiet dreams.

 

To Drive Away Bad Dreams

You will need the following items for this spell:

Bowl of warm water
Salt
Your chosen sprigs of herbs
String

This spell uses herbal magick and correspondences to clear the bedroom of negative influence. It is often a good idea to use material that is easily available, so you might use sprigs of rosemary, sage, Lady’s bedstraw, maize silks or broom-corn. Since you want something taken away you should perform this magical working as the Moon wanes.

Dissolve the salt in the warm water.

Tie the herbs together.

Dip the sprigs in the water and sprinkle the corners of the room with the water.

Use the sprigs to sprinkle the salt water on your bedclothes, and particularly round the head and foot of the bed.

When you have done this, place the herbs under your pillow, or if you prefer, under the middle of the bed.

The next morning, discard the herbs at a crossroads if you can, either by burying them or allowing them to disperse to the four winds. Otherwise ensure that you have carried them well away from your home.
This carries all negativity away from your bedroom and bed. This spell uses rosemary which brings clarity, sage for wisdom, ladies bedstraw which is said to have lined the manger at Christs birth, and broom corn, which is used in worship of the Mexican goddess Chicomecohuatl. All these herbs bring cleansing, not just of the room but also of the occupants aura or subtle energy. On the basis that one should always replace negative with positive, you may like to use the following technique to bring about positive dreams.

Having prepared your environment, this next technique is of most use when there is a strong, deeply felt association with the issue or request being considered in magical terms, ideal conditions for spell working. It is like being able to consult an encyclopedia that contains a wealth of information in fact, the Higher Self.
