A Thought for Today

Dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests may your life be blessed with all things positive!

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Make no promises to anyone today because at a deeper level, you are unsure of where your commitment lies, even if you are not consciously aware of this. Nevertheless, you might be physically attracted to someone today. (This attraction might be temporary and unreliable.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Impulse shopping is likely today. (Of course, you love beautiful things, quality items and antiques.) Today you might buy something because you can’t resist it. Meanwhile, a competition or challenge with a friend or a member of a group might arise. Stay cool.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Flirtations and physical attractions to others might occur today. (Fun to have a thrill.) Nevertheless, this planetary influence is not sufficient to guarantee a sustained relationship. This is more of a flash-in-the pan thing. Meanwhile, back in the boardroom, conflict with bosses, parents and authority figures are likely. Stay chill.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Don’t get worked up about political arguments or issues related to travel, higher education, medicine and the law because this will exhaust you, and probably lead nowhere. Meanwhile, a surprise flirtation might be exciting. (Ah, the thrill of secret passions!)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Parents must be patient with their kids today because they might have different ideas about what they want to do as opposed to your ideas. (This goes with the territory.) Likewise, a dispute with a friend about where to lunch or what to do might occur. Be cooperative.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might find yourself irresistibly attracted to someone in a uniform today or someone in a position of power. Meanwhile, you might have a power struggle with a friend, spouse or partner. Possibly this quarrel might be triggered by jealous feelings? (Just saying.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You are an excellent debater. (One of the reasons so many Librans are in the legal profession.) Today you feel passionately about something. Admittedly, you might also be attracted to someone you meet. (Be still my beating heart.) Avoid work disputes, which might occur.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

If financial disputes arise today, be patient. Also guard against a fast, passionate response to how you handle your money (or spend it) today. Act in such a way that you will have no regrets tomorrow. Something might lead to a romantic quarrel. Competition or jealousy might be a factor.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is the classic day for a passionate attraction to someone. (Eyes across a crowded room and all that.) This could be an exciting encounter, but very likely, a temporary one. Meanwhile, do your best to keep the peace at home because that makes life easier.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A hidden romance or a secret attraction might trigger an argument with someone today. Perhaps a jealous response by someone else? This could involve a work-related flirtation. Capricorns tend to compartmentalize their lives. Work colleagues rarely meet your family.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today a friend might become a lover. Certainly, many of you will feel a physical attraction to a friend, a new encounter, or a member of a group. Meanwhile, avoid money disputes or power struggles about cash flow or something that you own. Don’t do anything you will regret later.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Intense feelings with bosses and authority figures will exist today, and for many of you, these feelings will be a physical attraction or an exciting flirtation. Nevertheless, at the same time, you might feel competitive or even jealous of someone in power or someone famous. Remember: At the end of the game, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Ben Stiller (1965) shares your birthday today. You are clever, humorous and able to entertain others with wit and originality. You are diligent, polite and cooperative once you know what is expected of you. This year is slower paced. Take time to rejuvenate yourself. Focus on the relationships that are most important to you. Accept help from others.

However, if you wanted to try your luck as a performer, you’d probably be a natural. You as someone born today on November 30 like gambling, so you need to watch your spending.

You have exceptional sales ability. You are skilled when it comes to making money. Reaching your anticipated goals may seem easy… almost too easy. You liked to be challenged. The November 30 birthday meanings suggest that you are a bubbling personality who is honest.

I. The meaning of the King of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot

The majestic King held a scepter, like a bunch of torches, a lighthouse of fire and light. Perhaps, he himself was like a guiding light, illuminating with the blazing fire inside his chest and the red crown on his forehead. He held up the source of light to shine on the path and to easily guide the next step. The ground accordingly shook, alerting the forest dwellers to back down and make way for his every move. The surroundings gradually changed according to the will, silently obeying the wishes and unspoken commands of this powerful king.

This king is the source of inspiration, wearing the dreamy cloak of power. He never has felt constrained by this because he was born with innate authority and leadership. This is his nature. It burned within the steady flow of blood throughout his body, gradually ingraining into the flesh, in his voice, withering whatever he noticed.

His soul is a lion that is proud, fierce, dominant and never afraid to chase what it wants. He always acted confidently, with the power and elegance of a beast. The king was bold and did not hesitate to seize opportunities, especially on his way to new challenges.

Ailim or Ailm

Pronunciation – Ahlm

Tree Association – (Silver) Fir or Pine

Meaning – Joy, excitement, euphoria, creation (conception), pregnancy, and spiritual awakenings. You may be on the edge of something new and exhilarating, but remain patient! Fir trees are known for their height and allow for a beautiful vantage point that can easily change your mindset. Ailim will enable you to rise above your immediate surroundings and have more precise vision when you view things from above.

If reversed – Fear, panic, or anxiety – these feelings may be paralyzing you or causing intense sadness and suffering. Do your best to analyze these emotions. Start to process why you’re experiencing them and how you can heal from them.

Inscription and Magical Uses – Helpful when seeking spiritual awareness, intuition, understanding, spiritual growth, and connection with the universe. Useful when using the law of attraction and attracting a positive mindset. Giant fir and pine trees are some of the oldest beings in the forest and work well when connecting with your ancestors. Also wonderful to use in conjunction with children, ease labor pains, or during each stage of pregnancy.

Folklore – Pine was often burned around the Winter Solstice to entice the sun back and encourage the longer, warmer days to return. It is also burned during childbirth to protect the mother and child.

Spell for Today – Clear as a Bell

From freewitchspells.com

This is a clarity spell to get rid of misunderstandings and to help make yourself better understood when dealing with certain people.

  • A silver bell
  • Long yellow ribbon
  • Strip of paper

Write the name of the person you are dealing with on the paper. If it’s not really a certain person, you could write “my family” or “the people at work” to help gain some clarity with a certain group in your life.

Fold the paper in half once, and then in half again. Draw a pentacle on the top of the folded paper.

Wrap the yellow ribbon around the handle of the bell as many times as it will go. Ring the bell over the folded paper 7 times. Wait for a few minutes, then ring it again for another 7. After a few days, the person (or people) in your spell will start to listen to what you have to say.

The Light, the Dark, and the Dusty

Image Credit & CopyrightAnthony Quintile

Explanation: This colorful skyscape spans about four full moons across nebula rich starfields along the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy in the royal northern constellation Cepheus. Near the edge of the region’s massive molecular cloud some 2,400 light-years away, bright reddish emission region Sharpless (Sh) 155 is at the center of the frame, also known as the Cave Nebula. About 10 light-years across the cosmic cave’s bright walls of gas are ionized by ultraviolet light from the hot young stars around it. Dusty reflection nebulae, like vdB 155 to the right, and dense obscuring clouds of dust also abound on the interstellar canvas. Astronomical explorations have revealed other dramatic signs of star formation, including the bright reddish fleck of Herbig-Haro (HH) 168. Below and right of center, the Herbig-Haro object emission is generated by energetic jets from a newborn star.

NASA calls on the global public to help it document weird phenomena in the sky

NASA is calling on citizen scientists to help it collect data on the elusive, mysterious phenomena known as red sprites.

Red sprites are impressive red streaks of light that usually occur over storms and reach as high as 55 miles (90 km) into the atmosphere. They’re like a form of inverse lightning and form part of a group of lightning-like phenomena given names derived from fantasy — other examples include elves and giant jets.

The U.S. space agency believes many people may have unwittingly captured the phenomenon on camera and that their images could contribute to ground-breaking science. In a bid to collect this data, it has announced it is forming a new citizen science project called Spritacular (pronounced sprite-tacular).

The first crowdsourced database of sprites

NASA’s new citizen science project aims to connect professional scientists with members of the public willing to share photographs they’ve taken on their phones or digital cameras that may feature evidence of sprites or other Transient Luminous Events (TLEs).

“People capture wonderful images of sprites, but they’re shared sporadically over the internet and most of the scientific community is unaware of these captures,” explained Dr. Burcu Kosar, a space physicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland and Spritacular principal investigator. “Spritacular will bridge …
