Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 5:15 PM to 7:30 PM EST today (2:15 PM to 4:30 PM PST). After that, the Moon moves from Gemini into Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a classic day for squabbles with others, especially someone older or a member of a group. You have strong feelings about something and won’t hesitate to speak up. Perhaps this is related to shared property, or how something is fairly (or unfairly) divided?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a poor day to ask anyone in a position of authority for a favour or for permission. Knowing this ahead of time can save you some grief. Nevertheless, you have strong feelings about finances today. Perhaps you want to buy something?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today the Moon is in your sign lined up with Mars, which can make you feel a bit irritable and quick to fly off the handle. (You will certainly not back down from a fight!) Meanwhile back at the ranch, a dispute with someone older might take place where you work, probably about racial issues, politics or religion. Stay cool.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are off your game today, which is why you feel easily annoyed. Be aware of this and don’t make a big deal about something. Children might be an increased responsibility today or you might have difficulty dealing with rules, regulations and restrictions.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Family friction might take place today. Perhaps there’s a disagreement with a friend or a group to which you belong? Someone older or in a position of authority might not approve of your goals? Remember to listen as much as you talk.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be aware that you are high viz., which means people notice you more than usual today. Therefore, if you get into a public argument with a neighbour, relative or sibling, it will be obvious for all to see. (You might want to think twice about this.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Financial restrictions related to a social outing, a vacation or the cost of taking care of children might make you grumpy today. You also have strong feelings about political and racial matters. Take a moment to catch your breath. You have to process what is happening. Don’t just react.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today you might feel repressed or restricted. Perhaps you have heavy duties and responsibilities? Relations with authority figures might be tough. Whatever the case, you feel world-weary and discouraged. Remember: Good things end, and so do bad things.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

An argument with a close friend or partner might become heated today. Perhaps both of you have strong opinions about something? Or possibly, you have attracted an argumentative person to you? Very likely, this will upset you. (Hey, this is just a temporary dark cloud on your horizon.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re keen to work hard today because you want to accomplish something. Whatever it is, it’s something that you have a personal stake in. Meanwhile, discussions with a friend or perhaps a member of a group might discourage you. Accept what is.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a tough day to deal with authority figures. It’s a poor day to ask for permission or approval for anything. Meanwhile, the promise of social fun, romance and entertaining outings depends on your mood. What’s it going to be?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Avoid discussions about politics, religion and racial issues today because they will be a bummer. You’ll feel depressed or shutdown in some manner. In fact, issues at home or within the family are a bit volatile, which means you have to practice patience. Be smart.

Tarot Card

From Tarot – Lego Zen Tarot Deck

Queen of Rainbows – A Court Card

The Explanation of Queen of Rainbows Osho Zen Tarot

The Queen of Rainbows Osho Zen looks like an imaginary tree that is at its peak of flowering and freshness. She is very erotic, lively, and full of surprises. She snapped her fingers to the music of love, the zodiac necklace was cleverly placed so that the Venus symbol would be at her heart. Her sleeves contain lots of seeds, and when the wind blows through, the seeds will be scattered to take root where they may. She didn’t care whether they land on the soil or on the rocks – she just scattered them everywhere while enjoying life and love. Flowers fall on her from above, in harmony with her own flowering, and the stream of emotions swirled mischievously beneath the flower on which she sits.

You can feel blessings from everywhere like being in a flower garden at the moment. Welcome the bees and invite the birds to drink your nectar. Spread your joy around for all to share.

The Energy of Queen of Rainbows Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings

Zen wants you living, living in abundance, living in totality, living intensely – not at the minimum as Christianity wants you, but at the maximum, overflowing. Your life should reach to others. Your blissfulness, your benediction, your ecstasy should not be contained within you like a seed. It should open like a flower and spread its fragrance to all and sundry – not only to the friends but to the strangers too.  This is real compassion, this is real love: sharing your enlightenment, sharing your dance of the beyond.

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.

A wrong will be righted — and even if it has been you who has been wronged, you will tremble at the terrible power of Justice untempered by Mercy.
Pray for your oppressor, that his punishment will fit his crime.

Raven Meaning and Messages

In general, Raven symbolism can often be difficult to discern. However, there are always subtle clues available to you. If Raven announces its presence in a loud and raucous way, he is acting as a messenger. In this case, you must speak up and express yourself. This spirit animal could also be letting you know that you are not listening to the information and guidance that is forthcoming from your guardians. In other words, make sure you listen carefully and if you must, speak up for yourself!

Also, the Raven totem is the keeper of synchronicity. He is a master of bending and folding time and space. Therefore, you are precisely at the right moment at the right time. When you see this corvid on the lamp posts and buildings watching you, know that all things are falling into place for you. Hence, make sure you pay close attention to the people you meet for the next few hours. The Raven symbolism may be there to help you on your journey, provide insight, knowledge, and guidance. There is also an element of reflection with Raven’s meaning. Consequently, this bird is reminding you that the people around you are reflecting at you the things you most have to learn about yourself.

Furthermore, like the Cow, whenever Raven’s meaning appears in your life, fantastic magic is imminent. The Raven symbolism also brings messages of transition, change, and healing because of its ability to cast light into the darkness. When this happens, make sure that you are well-grounded and have faith in your journey. This birds’ magic will guide you through…

Spells for Today

 

For many, Friday is the last work day of the week. It’s considered the fifth day of the work week and, also, the “cut loose” day. By Friday night, people are out having a party. That makes Friday the perfect day for lust, banish, fast-grant, and find spells. This day is so powerful (energy wise). That’s why whatever you do on this day will, usually, have a strong effect. If you want things out of your life, the darkness and power, associated with this day, bring the energy you need for that. If you need strong, immediate results, this is your day, as well.

Lust Spell – Hair on Stick Lust Spell

Items you will need:

3 strands of hair
1 comb or brush
1 small stick
1 tube of red paint
1 bottle of glue

Spell:

Find a small stick and paint it red. While the paint is drying, comb through your hair and take three strands from your comb or brush. After the paint on the stick is dry, cover the stick in glue. Then, wrap the three strands of hair around the stick and let the glue dry.
Now, say this chant:
“I’ve wrapped up my passion.
I’ve wrapped up my lust.
I’m ready for it to come out.
I’m ready to trust
My desires and my will,
So the Universe can make it real.”
Put the stick under your bed, and your desires should could true.

 

Fast-Grant Spell – Money Grant Quick Spell

Items needed for this spell:

1 quarter
1 sheet of paper
1 pen or pencil

Spell:

Close your eyes and think about how much money you need and how fast you need it. When you are ready, open your eyes. On the left side of the paper, trace around a quarter. Then, trace a quarter on the right side. Draw a line from one quarter to the other.
Say these words:
“Point A,
To point B
Money come fast.
Money come quickly”
Fold up the paper and put it in a coat pocket. Very soon, you should receive some money.

 

 

Find Spells – Help Me Find Spell

Items you will need:

1 small white candle
1 small blue candle
1 lighter or match

Spell:

Set the two candles in front of you, close your eyes and think about what you have lost and how much you want it returned. Light both candles and say this chant three times:
“Blue candle is my love and devotion for ____________.
And how much I need ____________ back,
Safe and sound. _____________ was lost,
But I hope ________________ will be found.
White candle is for _________________’ s safe return,
While heading on my track.”
When you are done, blow out the candles. You may wake-up one morning and be shocked by the return of your lost item.

2022 November 11

Blood Moon, Ice Giant

Image Credit & CopyrightRyan Han

Explanation: On November 8 the Full Moon turned blood red as it slid through Earth’s shadow in a beautiful total lunar eclipse. During totality it also passed in front of, or occulted, outer planet Uranus for eclipse viewers located in parts of northern America and Asia. For a close-up and wider view these two images were taken just before the occultation began, captured with different telescopes and cameras from the same roof top in Shanghai, China. Normally very faint compared to a Full Moon, the tiny, pale, greenish disk of the distant ice giant is just to the left of the Moon’s edge and about to disappear behind the darkened, red lunar limb. Though only visible from certain locations across planet Earth, lunar occultations of planets are fairly common. But for this rare “lunar eclipse occultation” to take place, at the time of the total eclipse the outer planet had to be both at opposition and very near the ecliptic plane to fall in line with Sun, Earth, and Moon.

World’s Oldest Complete Star Map, Lost for Millennia, Found Inside Medieval Manuscript

Scholars may have just discovered a fragment of the world’s oldest complete star map.

The map segment, which was found beneath the text on a sheet of medieval parchment, is thought to be a copy of the long-lost star catalog of the second century B.C. Greek astronomer Hipparchus, who made the earliest known attempt to chart the entire night sky. The fragment was concealed beneath nine leaves, or folios, of the religious Codex Climaci Rescriptus at St. Catherine’s Monastery in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

The codex is a palimpsest, meaning the original writings have been scraped from their parchment to make way for a collection of Christian Palestinian Aramaic texts telling stories from the Old and New Testaments. The researchers thought that even earlier Christian texts were buried beneath the pages, but multispectral imaging revealed something more surprising: numbers stating, in degrees, the length and width of the constellation Corona Borealis and coordinates for the stars located at its farthest corners. The researchers published their findings Oct. 18 in the Journal for the History of Astronomy .

“I was very excited from the beginning,” study lead researcher Victor Gysembergh , a science historian at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Paris, told Nature . “It was immediately clear we had star coordinates.”

The researchers’ excitement grew when the precise coordinates enabled them to estimate the date when the coordinates were written down — roughly 129 B.C. when…

A Laugh for Today

I really wish I could take a nap but both hemisphere’s tomorrow posts need to be done. I also have to go clean a friend’s house for some extra money. One plus I have dinner made and, in the refrigerator, with the dishes from preparing the tuna/peas/noddle salad washed. So far, my fibromyalgia flare and arthritis are not any worse than they have been all week but that might be due to change as it is 30 degrees cooler today from yesterday. I am just going to take life one hour, maybe less, at a time today and watch the day unfold.
