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.

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.

November 20 Divination Journal

Tarot Card

Today’s Tarot Card Reading come from The English Magic Tarot by Rex Van Ryn, Steve Dooley and Andy Letcher Copyright 2015 (The unfamiliar terms used with this deck is in England’s English)

Ace of Cups – Minor Acrana

Love; friendship; emotions; feeling

Page 98

Description: In this coat of arms we see the Holy Grail. The legend reads “water my blood” and urges us “to keep silent.”

Interpretation: The Ace of Cups is the element of water at its more pure. It’s the refreshing spring bubbling up from the rocks, the trickle that will become a great river meandering to the sea. It’s the beginning of some new emotional journey. It’s the first flush of love and the aching love of life. It’s a pure feeling. It’s the Holy Grail.

Reading: The Ace of Cups represents a spring, a fountain, and the opening up of emotions. It signifies love of every kind, from romantic love to friendship. If the card is reversed then something is damming the water supply, leading to stagnation. Unlock the channels. Remember how to feel.

Rune

From The Rune Site

Dagaz

Sound: “d”
Stands for: Day
Color: Yellow
Casting meaning: Dagaz represents a stability between opposites, such as light and dark. It can stop harmful energy from getting to you but at the same time allow the good energy to slip through so that you can make good use of it.

Witches’ Rune

From The Summer Goddess Book of Shadows

The Sun

Always a good omen, the Sun Rune means something of value is coming your way. You can look forward to taking a bold step, embarking in a new direction.

Some may be carried out of their daily grind by unexpected and fortunate events. Other will be made aware of added responsibility and will have to deal with it.

Expect public promotions and public affairs. Look to be amazed, dazzled or even shocked by scandals. An older person, or person of authority could have the answers you are now seeking.

Accept your position as a mover and shaker of the world. For you, the time is right to head for the spotlight.

Ogham

From Ogham Symbol Gallery

Onn/Ohn

O is Onn, or Ohn, and represents the Gorse bush, sometimes called Furze. This yellow, flowery shrub grows on moors all year long, and is full of nectar and pollen. It’s a food source for many animals–the stalks are munched on by grazing livestock–but eventually Furze is set on fire. This controlled burn allows old deadwood to be gotten rid of, and clears the way for new life to begin. Gorse (Furze) represents long-term thinking and planning–knowing that sometimes we have to do without in order to gain things in the future. Gorse is a determined sort of plant that always comes back, and so it is also connected with perseverance and hope.

In some pieces of Celtic folklore, the Gorse is used as a protective barrier. Planting it around one’s home would keep the Sidhe away, and it can be shaped into a broom for sweeping away negative influences.

Ohn Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Whatever you’ve been looking for is right around the corner–keep pursuing your goals, because they are within your reach. If you aren’t sure what path you should be on or which direction you should head, sit down and make a list of goals. Figure out the destination, and then you’ll be able to focus on the journey.

Magical Aspects: Your spiritual journey has provided you with an abundance of gifts. Don’t keep these blessings to yourself–share them with others! If you’ve been asked to take on a role as leader or mentor, now is the time to do so.

I Ching

From psychic-revelation.com

Hexagram Forty-Three/43

Name: Kuai.

Keyphrase: Breakthrough.

Formed By The Trigrams: Lake over Heaven.

 

General: When the unscrupulous reveal their weaknesses be ready to act.

Love: This is a time when a breakthrough in your relationship will occur. Be sure to handle it honorably.

Business: When an opportunity presents itself, make sure you use positive strategies to achieve the breakthrough you need.

Personal: Any breakthrough on a personal level must be handled ethically.

Cardinal

“The polarities of your spiritual pursuits and physical pleasures are out of balance, so do whatever is necessary to bring them back into equilibrium”

Pages 24 to 26

When on a spiritual path, it’s easy to idealize what being spiritual means. It can become a rigid mental imprint upon which you judge anything that varies from your conceptualization of what “being spiritual” is suppose to be about. This includes not only another person’s practices and beliefs, but your own. Falling short of this idealism leads to either assuming a righteous and arrogant position with others, or when self-imposed, elicits guilt and shame.

This spiritual perfectionism can make you reticent about enjoying the pleasures of the material world, as well as those of your physical body. The Earth Herself provides a dazzling and sensual panorama of experiences to be directly encountered through the physical senses. Yet for many, truly enjoying the pleasures of senses of sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell can be fraught with worry, anxiety, guilt, and shame—products of early childhood religious and/or cultural conditioning. Others become so entangled in the world of senses that it becomes their god, and their spiritual core is lost to materiality.

To be polarized in one direction or another takes you either to lofty heights and iridescent abstractions that are completely ungrounded, or else causes you to become caught up in the glue of the mundane world without the guiding light of Spirit to provide a locus of authority. With the blessing of your awareness, you can redirect your thoughts and actions towards that which brings greater balance and fluidity between two polarities.

Spell for Today -Moonstone Travel

When dealing with a weekly spell guide, Mondays are thought to be the logical day for money, love, time and meditation spells. Since Mondays are thought to be the start of the work week, it gives plenty of time for a Monday spell to gain strength throughout the rest of the week.

Moonstone Travel Spell

This spell will call on Meness, the patron moon god of travelers. We met Meness earlier, in the meditation for Monday. I suggest setting up this spell in the evening. Find a spot that faces east or that is illuminated by moonlight. Or try setting this up under the moon, in the garden, or on the porch or your outside deck. Get some atmosphere going! Try using a scented candle, such as jasmine or gardenia, to coordinate the fragrance with the moon’s energies.

Gather the following items:

• A photo of your destination, your travel itinerary, or your airline tickets

• 4 small tumbled moonstones

• A scented white votive candle and holder

• A lighter or matches

Set up this spell on a safe, flat surface. Light the candle and place it in the holder. Place your paperwork/tickets or itinerary to one side of the candle. Arrange the four stones in a circle around the holder. Place your hands on the travel paperwork, and ground and center. Then repeat the following spell three times:

Meness, patron of travelers, watch over me

Whether I travel in the air, on land, or sea

Like a talisman in my pocket a stone will I tuck

Moonstones do encourage a safe journey and bring good luck. Take one of the stones and keep it in your pocket while you travel. You may close the spell by saying:

For the good of all, with harm to none

By the moon and stars, this spell is done.

Gather up your papers and tuck them away for your trip. Allow the candle to burn out on its own. If you performed this outside, then move your candle and the remaining stones indoors to let the candle safely finish burning. Never leave your candle unattended.

Airglow Ripples over Tibet

Image Credit & Copyright: Jeff Dai

Explanation: Why would the sky look like a giant target? Airglow. Following a giant thunderstorm over Bangladesh in late April, giant circular ripples of glowing air appeared over TibetChina, as pictured here. The unusual pattern is created by atmospheric gravity waves, waves of alternating air pressure that can grow with height as the air thins, in this case about 90-kilometers up. Unlike auroras powered by collisions with energetic charged particles and seen at high latitudes, airglow is due to chemiluminescence, the production of light in a chemical reaction. More typically seen near the horizon, airglow keeps the night sky from ever being completely dark.

Elemental Energies in Magick – Spirit

Some of the Elemental Energies in Magick for Spirit

The element of Spirit is the 5th unseen element. It is the combination of all the energies of the four elements and it is very hard to work with    because there is nothing to focus on. In fact the only real way to connect to this 5th element is to look inside yourself and connect with that part of you    that is unique and different from other people. The part of you that is noble, confident, honorable and strong. This is the part of you that is Spirit.    Unfortunately for most people, connecting to this part of themselves is made a lot more difficult than it has to be because of fear and insecurity. What if    they don’t have enough of these good qualities to ever connect to something that no one can see, touch, smell or hear? The answer lies in your own    personal mythology. Take for instance any story you have ever heard that moved you and inspired you. It can be a fairy tale you heard when you were a child    or a story you heard yesterday. You don’t have to believe the story was true to use the energy it raises inside of you. You need only focus on the way    it makes you feel and then translate it to other situations in your everyday life. In fact these stories represent psychological archetypes that we all    share which is why story-telling is common in our culture. We all have a craving for Spirit. Our mythology is the code of the unconscious mind, and it    paves the way to connecting to Spirit. So when you want to invoke the element of Spirit, summon the feelings of triumph or joy that stem from your personal    mythologies. The energy exists on its own for you to use and direct even after you have forgotten about the story. Once you have summoned the energy,    directing it is another matter. Spirit energy is often represented by the color white or ultra-violet (invisible) light. You should imagine whatever color    helps you define the Spirit energy you feel. This can be white, clear, ultra-violet, etc. It’s really up to you because this is your personal energy    source. Like all the other elements, Spirit energy is a part of nature, however, this is the point where YOU become another aspect of nature just as Fire,    Water, Air and Earth are parts of nature. Spirit represents the superconscious mental processes (as opposed to the conscious mental processes of Air and    the unconscious mental processes of Water). For this reason magick in all forms will be successful when performed under the supervision and assistance of    Spirit, ruled by the spirit of the center of the Four Winds, Metatron.
