A Thought for Today

Blessed be dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests, may your life be filled with all things positive! 

November 19, 2022 Daily Horoscopes

Click here to read Georgi Nicols Daily Horoscopes 

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 3:30 AM to 6 AM EST today (12:30 AM to 3 AM PST). After that, the Moon moves from Virgo into Libra.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Avoid hasty decisions today. Don’t jump into a situation without thinking because you might be confused. If you are confused, acknowledge this. The wiser move would be to hesitate. (Did you know that the origin of the word scruples meant “to hesitate”?)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Tread carefully when dealing with financial matters today because things might not unfold as you expect. A friend or a member of a group might not be completely honest or open with their information. Postpone important financial expenditures.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today Mars is in your sign, as it will be for the rest of year; however, today it is at odds with fuzzy Neptune. This has the effect of taking the wind out of your sails. You might feel discouraged about something. You might doubt your abilities to do something. Actually, this is the perfect day to take a nap.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a classic day to feel second doubts about something. You might doubt a situation; you might doubt another person; you might doubt yourself. If you feel somewhat paralyzed and unable to act – listen to this. Be smart and do nothing.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

If you have second doubts about leading a group of people today, or urging someone to do something – listen to that little voice on your shoulder. You might want to rethink things. Alternatively, if someone suggests something to you that makes you feel hesitant – again, listen to that voice on your shoulder.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you might question someone’s leadership; or question the instructions of a parent, boss, teacher or a member of the police. Obviously, you don’t want to get into hot water; but it might be foolish to follow directions that are questionable. Tough call.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

When it comes to travel plans or ideas related to publishing, the media, medicine or something to do with legal matters – postpone actions if you can today. That is because today things are in a state of flux, with too much confusion and a lack of direction.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Postpone important decisions about shared property, taxes, inheritances and insurance issues today because things are unclear. Furthermore, you are not in the position to defend yourself as well as you might be able to on other days. Timing is everything.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today you have to cut others some slack, especially partners and close friends, because things are confusing, and this confusion can make you judgmental. You might accuse someone of letting the team down. Or accuse them of something. Be forgiving.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Don’t be hard on yourself if you feel confused at work or confused about doing whatever you’re doing. You might work in fits and starts. Or you might feel too lazy to tackle anything. This is because the energy for everyone today is sluggish. It is what it is.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

If you’re involved in sports today or dealing with kids, don’t be surprised if your energy is flagging. You might feel confused about what is expected of you. This is what’s happening – it’s not your fault. Get as much done as you can but go gently.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is not the day to shove the furniture around at home or make big decisions. Lower your expectations. Don’t try to do too much because you don’t have the juice for it. Furthermore, family discussions will be a bit lame. Poor day for important actions.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Allison Janney (1959) shares your birthday today. You are a natural leader. You are confident, friendly and very much an independent thinker. You exude strength, and you have opinions. This year is the end of a nine-year cycle for you, which means it is appropriate to let go of people, places and things that are holding you back from your positive future.

NOVEMBER 20 birthday horoscope predicts that you are a Scorpio who has a strong will. You are determined and dedicated to living a successful life. You love challenges and are always ready to fight for your rights.

Besides being a person who loves a challenge, you are also willing to make sacrifices for your friends and family. This could be because you tend to be the nurturer of the group. Everyone appreciates this quality as it is hard to find this in a friend or family member.

The November 20 birthday personality enjoy family and having fun. You are loyal to family or to those who love you. If today is your birthday, you are highly receptive and passionate.

Additionally, you can possess intuitive qualities that make you popular when it comes to being a trusted friend. This Scorpio birthday is very charming and alluring. However, you can overdo it, you go to the extreme every so often, Scorpio.

The November 20th astrology analysis predicts that underneath that quiet exterior can be a hot-headed and impulsive individual. You tend to take pleasure in living a life that is comfortable.

It then affords you the option to be of help to others. There is one setback to this, and that is you tend to be clingy. Yes…there are times when you are to the breaking point of being intrusive, jealous, and obsessive.

Otherwise, you have a good heart. The future of person who born on November 20 shows that you are too nice for your good. That’s just like you… a Scorpio. This could be of a disadvantage if you were in positions of management or leadership.

You love the feeling of having power over others or rather having others dependent on you. Having these emotions, you may find it difficult to get over hurt feelings especially those resulting from the act of betrayal.

The November 20th love compatibility predicts that this Scorpio lover is a puzzling individual. Initially, it’s difficult to commit but once you decide to be with one person, you devote yourself to that one person only. Your partner should be a good listener and tactful.

In the bedroom, the November 20 birthday personality should be, above all things, passionate and open to trying new things. You couldn’t go wrong if you were thinking about becoming involved with someone born on this zodiac birthday. On the other hand, you should not play deceitful love games with this Scorpion. Although the scorpion may seem fragile and even harmless, its sting can prove to be dangerous.

When it comes to your health, you seem to get it. You take care of your body, mind, and soul. You take measures to develop your inner self, maturing into a strong emotionally and physically balanced individual. Additionally, you follow a nutritious and wholesome diet. What’s more to say than kudos, Scorpio.

What’s most important to someone born on a November 20 birthday is family or those they love. You have dreams and aspirations. As an enterprising person, it is highly possible that you could turn a hobby into a lucrative profession. The difficulty lies in making a decision on which goal or cause to pursue.

You realize that it may not happen when you feel it should but rather at the time that change should happen. You are practical, logical and have a great understanding of nature. You know that some things are beyond your control, so you don’t spend your wheels worrying about those situations.

The November 20 horoscope shows that you are a dependable, sensible but occasionally a careless person. As a lover or as a friend, you may find it hard to let go and let people in, but once you make up your mind, relationships generally last.

Those of you born today are likely health conscious individuals who could live for a long time. Your spiritual values and practices enable you to live almost a stress-free life. Overall, anyone would be lucky to have you as a friend, family member, business associate or life partner.

November 19, 2022 Moon Goddess Current Phase

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious, you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else was born.  

From MoonGiant.com 

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. This phase is best viewed just before the sunrise in the western sky. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Visit the November 2022 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waning Crescent Phase

The Waning Crescent on November 19 has an illumination of 23%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On November 19 the Moon is 24.88 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

Tarot Card

From TarotX – Osho Zen Tarot Deck

Four of Fire

The Explanation of Four of Fire Osho Zen Tarot

Each character in this mandala holds the left hand up in the receiving posture and lowers the left hand in the giving posture. The whole circle forms a huge energy field that takes on the shape of the double Dorje, symbolizing the Tibetan symbol for the thunderbolt. The mandala is like an energy field surrounding the Buddha, where all the individuals taking part in the circle make a unique contribution to create a unified and vital whole. The mandala is like a lotus flower, the total is more beautiful than the combined components, and at the same time enhances the beauty of each petal.

When Four of fire Osho Zen card appears, you have the opportunity to participate with others now to make your contribution to creating something greater and more beautiful than each of you could manage alone. Your presence not only nourishes yourself but also makes a valuable contribution to the whole.

The Energy of Four of Fire Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings

Have you ever seen night going? Very few people even become aware of things which are happening every day. Have you ever seen the evening coming? The midnight and its song? The sunrise and its beauty? We are behaving almost like blind people. In such a beautiful world we are living in small ponds of our own misery. It is familiar, so even if somebody wants to pull you out, you struggle.

You don’t want to be pulled out of your misery, of your suffering. Otherwise, there is so much joy all around, you have just to be aware of it and to become a participant, not a spectator. Philosophy is speculation, Zen is participation. Participate in the night leaving, participate in the evening coming, participate in the stars and participate in the clouds; make participation your lifestyle and the whole existence becomes such a joy, such an ecstasy. You could not have dreamed of a better universe.


From The Rune Site – Gothic Runes


Sound: “th”
Stands for: Thorn
Casting meaning: Thauris is a rune of defense, like the thorn it can resist an attack without a fight. The rune Thyth represents the power of enclosure and has the strength to breakdown disorder and chaos.

Witch’s Rune

From GroveandGrotto.com

The Sun

Success, pride, and power. Progress, stability.  A definite “yes.”


From A Druid Ogham


Gifts, doorways, standing on the shoulders of giants, luck

Tree: Oak (Quercus spp.)

Letter: D

There isn’t a bad side to Duir, even when ill-dignified. Maybe it is because the mighty Oak is king of all trees and therefore king of the Ogham. Drawing Duir means that you will receive, are receiving, or have received a gift. The gift can come in unexpected forms — it could be as simple as a thought or it may be, in rarest of cases, an actual physical gift. Understanding Duir does take the prerequisite ability to appreciate gifts. The modern world is cursed with entire classes of people who take luxuries for granted and for whom gratitude is an untenable concept. Those people cannot be helped by any force other than glacial procession of time and the unimaginable powers that shape it.

Duir’s influence is like a good father or wise old grandpa: generous, kind, wise, full of knowledge and happy to share it, protective, and nurturing. He is a living library. He acts as a guide, creator, and ruler.

Questions when you draw Duir:

I Ching

From IChingOnline.net

Hexagram 49 – Forty-Nine

Ko / Revolution

Fire ignites within the Lake, defying conditions that would deny it birth or survival:
The Superior Person reads the Signs of the Times and makes the Season apparent to all.

The support you need will come only after the deed is done.
Renewed forces, however, will provide fresh energy for exceptional progress.
All differences vanish.


A revolutionary Change must be made forcibly.
There is no negotiating with the Established Order.
Perfect timing is essential.
Let the abuse of power become apparent and oppressive to those around you before making your move.
Lay the groundwork, sow the seeds for Revolution without tipping your hand prematurely.
You will need a strong foundation, because you will have to bring about this necessary change alone.
You cannot count on popular support, so you must wait until there is massive dissent.
Then the avenue for your assault will be cleared.


From Kasamba.com – Numerology


Number 1 literally suggests being number 1 in the things you’re doing. If it’s business, then number 1 shows your admirable leadership ability, your charisma when showing others the way, and in turn, people’s natural, innate desire to trust your lead. If you decide to own your business or be a manager at a company, you’ll succeed greatly. Just remember, not every other person is a number 1! It will help to have patience and understanding for those who’re born to be followers.

In matters of love, it’s easy for you to be on your own and not feel lonely. You love being in a relationship but you also enjoy being single – sometimes too much! When you’re going for a long-term commitment, make sure your partner doesn’t have co-dependency issues, as it will be a deal-breaker for you.

If a certain date adds up to number 1, that day is a great day to start new projects, to go out on a first date, to get a new haircut, and to plan ahead.

2022 November 19

Artemis 1 Moonshot

Image Credit & CopyrightJohn Kraus

Explanation: When the Artemis 1 mission’s Orion spacecraft makes its November 21 powered flyby of the Moon, denizens of planet Earth will see the Moon in a waning crescent phase. The spacecraft will approach to within about 130 kilometers of the lunar surface on its way to a distant retrograde orbit some 70,000 kilometers beyond the Moon. But the Moon was at last quarter for the November 16 launch and near the horizon in the dark early hours after midnight. It’s captured here in skies over Kennedy Space Center along with the SLS rocket engines and solid rocket boosters lofting the uncrewed Orion to space. Ragged fringes appearing along the bright edge of the sunlit lunar nearside are caused as pressure waves generated by the rocket’s passage change the index of refraction along the camera’s line of sight.

This plant was thought to be extinct until it was rediscovered in a crater on Hawaii

A rare plant thought to be extinct in the wild has been discovered in a crater on Hawaii.

The tiny population of Delissea argutidentata was discovered in March 2021, according to a joint news release from Kamehameha Schools, the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources, and nonprofit Three Mountains Alliance published on Monday.
