Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You will accomplish a lot today because you’re in the mood to work! Many of you will spend time in the kitchen today sharing your culinary talents with loved ones. Conversations with others are warm and easy-going. Nevertheless, this is a good day to discuss shared financial responsibilities.

This is a fast-paced, busy day for you! Relations with siblings, relatives and neighbours will be warm. Short trips and many conversations will keep you hopping today. Increased responsibilities with children are likely. Personally, your words are sweet.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Finances are on your mind today. Thoughts about cash flow, earnings and expenditures. (It was ever thus.) A discussion about budgets and financial planning for the future will be serious but helpful. Listen to advice if it is offered because you have nothing to lose.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’re full of energy today because the Sun, the Moon, Mercury and fair Venus are all in your sign, which puts you front and centre! Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want because you will likely get it. Communicate your ideas to others. (You might shop for wardrobe treasures.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

In many ways, you will be happy to play things low-key and enjoy peace and quiet behind the scenes. Nevertheless, you might research or ferret out answers and solutions to problems for yourself or others. This could bring a financial benefit down the road.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You will enjoy schmoozing and talking to friends today. You will also be very happy working in groups and organizations, especially charitable ones. Expect to be involved with younger, creative people today. These conversations will make you enthusiastic and possibly, cause you to tweak your future goals.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You look wonderful in the eyes of others today, especially important people – parents, bosses, teachers, authority figures and the police. Because of this, your conversations with authority figures will go well today. In fact, someone might tell you how much they care for you or admire you. (Gosh.)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Collin Hanks (1977) shares your birthday today. You are creative, warm and charming; however, you can also be detached, if you choose. You’re observant about everything around you, which can make you cautious. This is a year of change for you, which means it’s important to stay light on your feet. Be courageous. Be ready to act fast!

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

NOVEMBER 24 birthday horoscope predicts that you are a Sagittarius who is straight up and but optimistic. What others consider as being blunt and hurtful, you say it’s honest real talk. You never actually mean anyone harm.

The November 24 birthday personality is a positive and adventure seeking individual who loves the outdoors. You love exploring new lands and discovering new people. In short, those of you born on this day love life!

As the November 24 zodiac sign is Sagittarius, you have a charming personality. Your inner beauty shines right through you. You have strong ties to your spiritual beliefs and are a bright individual.

Your friends certainly think so, and you have a lot of friends. However, the November 24 horoscope suggests that you attract lovers who are not right for you or rather they are not like you. Sometimes, you have difficulty committing to someone who doesn’t share your views.

Your family, however, say you have remained close to them and find solace in traditional values. You may be too dependent on your loved ones especially if you have children.

This Sagittarius birthday as a parent tends to hang on to her/his “babies” for too long. There comes a time in every parent’s life that they must let go so their children can grow. It’s the only way to have experienced adults who can be productive and successful in life.

As far as the health of the November 24 birthday personality is concerned, you tend to take care of yourself, but you use limited resources. Although eating a balanced and wholesome meal constitutes some effort in the right direction, it is not enough.

Finding a workout plan just for you is not as hard as it used to be. You don’t even have to go to the gym anymore. Personal trainers are at your fingertips with today’s technology. Incorporating a fitness plan into your daily routine is feasible and very doable. Try a few at the same time and decide on one. Then try your second choice or maybe combine them all into one regimen tailored for your needs and desires.

The future of person who born on November 24 predicts that you make an excellent communicator or speaker/writer. You have all the makings for a job in public relations. Your attitude is great. You wear a smile all the time.

You aren’t afraid to stand up for yourself or for what you believe in. This could be an excellent choice for you. If that does not excite you, then perhaps a life of the entertainer or performance artist should. The media industry is wide open to someone with a November 24 birthday. It might as well be you in the spotlight.

This November 24 Sagittarius is generally in control… it’s where you want to be at all times. Usually, if you have to give up your freedom for a lover or a job, then you are not a happy camper. They may have to find a replacement for you sooner than later if this happens.

If today is your birthday, you are people who live life a bit on the wild side. Vacations are usually exciting trips that include something risky or dangerous like mountain climbing or skydiving. You love this kind of stuff.

On the other hand, you can be impulsive and highly intolerant of others. As the November 24 horoscope rightly says, you are likely suited to have a seat on the city council. At your best, the media is calling your name. There are a variety of things that you could be as you are vocal and you can write. As we talked about your health, you could stand some improvements, but you are on the right track.

November 24 Divination Journal

Tarot

From the Celtic Dragon tarot card deck and book by D. J. Conway

Pages 110 AND 111

Queen of Swords – Court Card

Learning lessons; manipulation

The Queen of Swords is a mature woman who walks through a pit of fire with confidence. Although the flames flare around her on all sides, her face is calm, her eyes straight ahead. She has learned that life offers both positive and negative learning experiences and that one becomes stronger by refusing to give in to fear an despair. In one hand she carries a raised sword, while the other rests on the head of a Fire dragon who is mostly hidden behind her and from whose mouth issues more flames. The sword represents the Queen’s faith in her ability to fight her way through any adversity, while the huge dragon-companion symbolizes astral and spiritual teachers who are always beside us, not to impede our progress by making life to smooth, but to guide our steps through any “trial” to safety. The Queen wears a crown with a triangular-shaped, red stone in front, symbolic of her connectedness with both the Goddess and her own feminine power. Three little Fire dragons frolic in the flames, encouraging her to continue her path.

Divinatory Meaning: This card indicates a powerful feminine influence. You will be faced with with a period in your life that makes you learns an important lesson you have avoided. Be careful getting your way in something through manipulation, for later this action will come back to haunt you.

Flight

The Flight Rune stands for a time when you will finally break free and overcome obstacles that have impeded your progress.

You can look forward to a time when all communications; physical, meta-physical and spiritual are of great importance.

Expect to be given news that will alter your direction. Look to gain sudden insights and crucial revelations.

This rune signifies the kind of communication that changes your course of action, so there may be shake-ups or surprises in events you had already planned.

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 the shadow 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.

I Ching

From psychic-revelation.com – I Ching

Hexagram Eight/8

Name: Pi.

Keyphrase: Union.

Formed By The Trigrams: Water over Earth.

General: A community bound by goodwill is the most potent force for powerful positive change there is.

Love: Use goodwill and trust to achieve unity within your relationship.

Business: Strengthen networks within your business and ties with networks your business is a part of.

Personal: Form or strengthen ties with family and friends.

Overview: Pi relates to the need for unity to accomplish positive change. Relationships built on trust and goodwill should be formed and maintained for the benefit of all – not just for personal gain. This applies to not only family and friends but the community around you in general and your business community too.

Numerology Number

From NUMEROLOGY SINGLE DIGIT NUMBERS

Eight

The most misunderstood number in numerology. The Numerology Meaning of the Number 8: BALANCE & POWER

In Numerology, both novices and professionals alike tend to focus on the “money and power” image of the 8. Often when a client requests a name change consultation, it’s because they want to add 8s to their chart with the mistaken belief it will bring them money and power.

It is true that the 8, more than any other number, emphasizes the areas of career, business, finances, and authority.

As with other single-digit numbers, the shape reflects its most important attribute; in the case of the 8 it signifies balance. The 8 is the great Karmic Equalizer, a force that creates just as efficiently as it destroys. When the 8 comes knocking, you can be assured you will reap what you’ve sown.

The 8 creates a balance between the material and spiritual worlds.

At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic. The sacred side of the 8 is practical, rational, and intelligent. It knows the difference between make-believe and genuine realization.

On the material plane, it is focused on results – often in the form of money – yet it doesn’t care about acquiring wealth merely for the sake of being wealthy. It is not greedy; it sees money as a tool not an end-result. It is generous and willing to take risks.

People with strong 8s in their charts often make and lose fortunes more than once during their life.

The 8 doesn’t consider bankruptcy a reason to slow down or feel sorry for themselves – and they usually come out stronger and more success-oriented than before.

Some of the more recognizable traits of the 8 are drive, ambition, authority, efficiency, organization, management, discipline, and control. Individuals with the 8 in their core numbers are goal-oriented, focused, have good judgment, are discriminate, and practical. In short, the 8 is a realist.

Its closest relative is the 1, as both numbers are powerful, have strong leadership skills, and will not shy away from confrontation. While the 1 lacks diplomatic skills and an understanding of human nature (typical traits of the 2), the 8 does exhibit those abilities. This is perhaps the principal reason why the 8 tends to do well in business and authority roles – the military and law enforcement also attract many 8s.

When the 8 appears in your personality profile chart, it indicates the presence of the character traits mentioned earlier as well as the potential to be successful and prosperous. Hence, the reason so many people hope to manipulate their charts by adding one or more 8s.

While the 8 carries enticing gifts, its energy needs to be supported by other numbers for it to flourish. The 4 helps keep an eye on the all-important details, and the 9 keeps the 8 in touch with their humanity.

Be careful what you ask for.

If you decide to change your name to add one or more 8s to your profile, the rest of your chart must be able to support this strong force. If the 8 is out of balance, you may inherit more of its negative attributes, like frustration, dissatisfaction, anger, aggression, greed, intolerance, hate… and insomnia.

A higher-than-average percentage of 8s find their way into the top echelons of society, but you will also find a disproportionate number of 8s among the homeless.

If the 8 appears in your cycles – especially your Essence cycle – it carries an increase in energy and focus, a newfound sense of motivation, and enhanced self-confidence. The shape of the 8 shows balance, but it also reveals confidence, as it looks you right in the eye. A constructive 8 is honest to a fault, generous, and forgiving. They can be physically imposing or athletic and tend to excel in sports requiring strength and endurance.

Most 8s are not particularly romantic in the traditional sense, as they prefer a more practical and straight-forward approach. Still, they are loving and more than carry their weight in relationships.

As with all single-digit numbers, the 8 has a positive and a negative side.

One mystery of Numerology is that there is a small number of people who, from an early age on and for no discernible reason, seem to turn the opposite direction of what their charts indicate. “Seem” is the keyword here. This phenomenon is found with all numbers, but it appears to affect 8s more than others. There are quite a few people whose charts are dominated by 8s that become priests, missionaries, humanitarians, and so forth. However, even those selfless, loving individuals tend to be skilled in fundraising, money management, and authority.

Some of the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence for Thursday

From GypsyWolf.weebly.com

Thursday is the fifth day of the week.   In the Norse languages this day is called Torsdag, honoring Thor, the god of strength, fertility, thunder, the protector and defender in war, and son of Odin.  Thor is the counterpart of Zeus (Greek), and Jupiter or Jove (Roman).  Thor, the most beloved of the great gods of northern mythology, is the only god who cannot cross from earth to heaven across the rainbow bridge, for he is so heavy and powerful that the gods fear it will break under his weight.  It was said that whenever his hammer Mjollnir, was thrown, it would produce a thunderbolt and when struck against stone, it would create lightning.

Lynds Dark Nebula 1251

Image Credit & Copyright: Stefano Attalienti

Explanation: Stars are forming in Lynds Dark Nebula (LDN) 1251. About 1,000 light-years away and drifting above the plane of our Milky Way galaxy, the dusty molecular cloud is part of a complex of dark nebulae mapped toward the Cepheus flare region. Across the spectrum, astronomical explorations of the obscuring interstellar clouds reveal energetic shocks and outflows associated with newborn stars, including the telltale reddish glow from scattered Herbig-Haro objects hiding in the image. Distant background galaxies also lurk on the scene, almost buried behind the dusty expanse. This alluring view spans over four full moons on the sky, or 35 light-years at the estimated distance of LDN 1251.
