You generally have an upbeat personality and always ready for a new adventure. You can be a curious spirit, and you love life.

If today is your birthday, you like to travel. Things can become routine, and you tend to dislike schedules or agendas. Additionally, you give people the benefit of the doubt in certain situations where you should not have.

However, being born today on November 27 means something. It means that you are a person who is eager to see what lies in front of him or her. It also means that you are more buoyant than the others born under the same zodiac sign.

The 27th November birthday personality knows instinctively that they were made for something big and the locals cannot seem to understand this right now. On the other side, you make every effort to help somebody in need. You are cheerful and hopeful about things and people and you are fortunate!

This list of good things that your November 27 horoscope says about you goes on. Your attitude is contagious, and you can be feisty at times. On that note, you party like there’s no tomorrow. People are just drawn to you.

More so, they like that you tend to live on the edge from time to time. When it comes down to it, your friends and family like being around you and they are more than willing to be of assistance to you.

You may feel as though life is worth living to the fullest and that you should put your best foot forward in every aspect of life. You care about where you live and the community.

Alongside all that, these Sagittarius birthday people are adaptable and articulate. I am sure you will have a ball finding a career just right for you. It is suggested that November 27 zodiac birthday individuals like trading or sales. This could take you out of town a lot.

The November 27 astrology predicts that you love gambling. You like taking risk overall, but this could work against you. It is likely that you have problems in your relationships because of this. You tend to be free-hearted and perhaps give too much. You give with your heart and believe that Karma will be good to you.

Furthermore, as the November 27 zodiac sign is Sagittarius, you like being uninhibited. Any restrictions could cause conflicts between you and your lover or employer. In the event you have to work under the microscope, you won’t be happy, and the chances are that you will not be there long.

You like to go places and to be active. You need a change of pace to refresh yourself if you want the future of person who born on 27 November to be fruitful.

November 27 Divination Journal

Tarot Card

From TarotX

Death – Major Arcana Card

In the card, the Death is riding on a white horse, holding a flag with two main colors, white and black. He appears as a skeleton because it is the rest of the body after death. The armor he wore symbolizes invincible and indomitable. Indeed, no one has conquered him. The riding horse is white, the color of purity. Therefore, he is the ultimate cleanser. Everything is reborn to become pure, fresh and new. Let’s notice even the chaplain is paying homage to him. All elements of humanity illustrated in this card, including men, women, and children, it shows the Death does not distinguish among age, race, and gender.

The flag that he brought with the black background is the implication of the lack of light. While white roses represent beauty, purity, and immortality. The sun rises on the backdrop of the card is the symbol of immortality. The sun appears to ‘end’ the darkness and regenerates a fresh new day every morning. The two pillars are guarding the gate to the sun, symbolizing the source of knowledge required to attain that immortality. The boat on the water is a ferry carrying souls across the Styx River. The card’s background is neutral gray, which is also an illustration of the justice of The Death.

Death Tarot card is influenced by the Scorpio (the zodiac of sexuality, death, and taxation) and is numbered thirteen which is the divine figure for the Goddess because there are thirteen moons in a year.

Ogham

From Ogham Symbol Gallery

Amhancholl

Ae (sometimes represented as X or Xi), is Amhancholl or Eamhancholl, associated with Witch Hazel. This natural astringent is purifying and cleansing. The word Eamhancholl literally translates to “twin of Hazel”, so there is a strong connection to C–Coll in the Ogham. When Amhancholl appears, it’s usually an indicator that cleansing and purification is necessary or has taken place.

From a purely medicinal standpoint, Witch Hazel has long been used as a cleanser and astringent. Native American tribes turned it into a poultice which was used to treat swelling and tumors. Amongst the early settlers, midwives arriving in the New World found that it could be used to prevent sepsis following childbirth or an abortion. Today, it’s still in use as a treatment for skin inflammations, such as insect bites, mild burns, and even hemorrhoids.

Amhancholl Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, it means it’s time for a cleansing. Sometimes this is a physical cleansing of our Self, but often it applies to emotional clutter and baggage. Smudge your home, get rid of all the negative energies around you, and allow yourself to purify both your body and your mind.

Magical Aspects: This is a good indicator that you need to do a re-evaluation of your spiritual life. Are you studying things that no longer interest you? Are you hanging on to books or other magical items that you know you’ll never need–or worse, that you really dislike? If you’re feeling stagnant, or that you’re drifting a bit on a spiritual level, when this symbol appears it probably means you need to rethink your priorities. What are your spiritual goals? Do a cleansing ritual, and help yourself begin anew.

I / Providing Nourishment

Beneath the immobile Mountain the arousing Thunder stirs:
The Superior Person preserves his freedom under oppressive conditions by watching what comes out of his mouth, as well as what goes in.

Endure and good fortune will come.
Nurture others in need, as if you were feeding yourself.
Take care not to provide sustenance for those who feed off others.
Stay as high as possible on the food chain.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

You are a conduit in this instance, able to provide the sustenance needed by others.
Position yourself to nourish the truly needy and worthy.
Avoid situations where you might be coerced into supporting the parasites and vermin who deprive your true charges.
Your own nourishment is an issue here, too.
Remember Lao Tzu’s three Great Treasures:
Only the person possessed of Compassion, Modesty and Frugality can remain fit enough to stay free of desperation and keep control of the situation.

Stag Symbolism, Meanings & The Stag Spirit Animal

Red Deer Stag

Stag symbolism and meanings include stamina, virility, grace, instincts, maturity, regeneration, and spiritual enlightenment. The stag – sometimes referred to as hart – is exalted among other deer. He is mature and experienced, having endured life’s challenges, and he has a massive crown of antlers to show for it. Because stags are native to every continent, except Australia and Antarctica, they are subjects in the mythology and folklore of many ancient cultures. In addition, the stag spirit animal appears in the spiritual belief systems of cultures around the world.

Some of the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence for Sunday

From WitchSwap.com

Sunday is associated with the Sun and zodiac sign of Leo. I add Cancer and Aries to this because they are also associated with the Sun.

The elemental correspondence is Fire, (shocking, I know). In my opinion Sunday is the most diverse day in terms of its spell correspondences. Spells for success, money/prosperity, healing, protection, insight, fame/power, attraction and empowerment are just a few of the spells that can be amplified if performed on a Sunday.

Gods/Goddesses: Helios, Brigid. Brigid is the Goddess of Fire and the Hearth and is celebrated on Imbolc, which is known as the “Festival of Lights”. By invoking her on Sundays you can tap into her powers of illumination and maternal energy.

Angel: Michael. Archangel Michael is the ultimate warrior. He can be petitioned to help aid your cause or to destroy an enemy. If this is an angel you work with often, Sunday would be an auspicious day for honoring him and offering him gifts of thanks.

Supernumerary Rainbows over New Jersey

Image Credit & Copyright: John Entwistle

Explanation: Yes, but can your rainbow do this? After the remnants of Hurricane Florence passed over the Jersey Shore, New JerseyUSA in 2018, the Sun came out in one direction but something quite unusual appeared in the opposite direction: a hall of rainbows. Over the course of a next half hour, to the delight of the photographer and his daughter, vibrant supernumerary rainbows faded in and out, with at least five captured in this featured single shot. Supernumerary rainbows only form when falling water droplets are all nearly the same size and typically less than a millimeter across. Then, sunlight will not only reflect from inside the raindrops, but interfere, a wave phenomenon similar to ripples on a pond when a stone is thrown in. In fact, supernumerary rainbows can only be explained with waves, and their noted existence in the early 1800s was considered early evidence of light’s wave nature.

Massive Ancient Sea Turtle Discovered in Spain was Nearly the Size of a Car

Paleontologists in Spain believe they unearthed a new prehistoric sea turtle species that may be among the largest ever, according to research published last week in the peer-reviewed journal Scientific Reports.

Researchers at the Autonomous University of Barcelona analyzed the pelvis bone and posterior part of the shell recovered from the Pyrenees mountain region in northeastern Spain in 2016 and 2021, and determined the turtle was about 12 feet long (just smaller than the average sedan ), according to a news release on the study.

A hiker traversing the Pyrenees in 2016 stumbled upon part of the fossil. He called the local authorities who recovered the fossil and transferred it to a local museum, where it sat for years until 2021, according to Albert Sellés, a researcher with the university’s Miquel Crusafont Catalan Institute of Paleontology.

That’s when researchers decided to examine the fossil further, Sellés said.

Paleontologists returned to the site where the fossil was found in early 2021 and unearthed another piece of the fossil, according to Sellés.

Sellés, who co-authored the study, said the team began comparing newly discovered remains to other giant ancient sea turtles in the fossil record like Archelon and Protostega , both of which roamed the waters near North America and were the best potential matches. But the fossils had distinct features. Its shell was different, as was its pelvis.

“That’s when we realized that what we had before us was something different,” Sellés told USA TODAY Tuesday.

The newly discovered turtle is slightly smaller than the extinct Archelon. The world’s largest known prehistoric sea turtle, Archelon could grow to be up to 15 feet long and weigh as much as 3.5 tons, according to the news release.

Still, they were looking at the largest turtle ever found in Europe, Sellés said. The new species, Leviathanochelys aenigmatica, lived 72.1 to 83.6 million years ago during the Campanian Age, when much of modern-day Europe was underwater, the researcher say.

Sellés and his colleagues could glean relatively little about the giant turtle’s lifestyle with such incomplete remains. But they were able to identify some quirks in its physiology.

The pelvis, for example, has two protruding sections that Sellés hypothesizes could have allowed the turtle to compress its stomach area to expel air from its body and descend into deeper waters.

Leviathanochelys aenigmatica’s very existence also complicates previous understanding about the evolution of large sea turtles because it shows other species of ancient sea turtle could achieve a massive size.

“The evolution of turtles’ sizes is more complex than what he had thought up to this point,” Sellés said. “It was always thought that large sea turtles belonged to the Archelon and Protostega groups. Now it doesn’t seem so.”
