From MoonGiant.com 

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waxing Gibbous phase. Visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

December 1 Divination Journal

Tarot Cards

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)

General

King of Wands – A Court Card

Self-Interest; celebrity

Page 79

Description: A king sits upon a sumptuous throne. He’s dressed in rich fabrics and expensive clothes. He seems not to notice the wand propped up behind him.

Interpretation: There have always been dandies’ dedicated followers of fashion, but this guy takes the cake. His hair is tightly curled in a style, or a wig, that must have taken an army of hairdressers to prepare. His outrageous hat that supports plumes that would put a bird of paradise to shame. Look at the lace on his cuffs! Those frilly pantaloons! I can’t imagine there are any callouses on those manicured hands. No, he can sit there all day, preening in the mirror and ordering others about.

This is the ever-present celebrity, someone famous simply for being famous, with carte blanche to act as selfishly as they like. Although our king has inherited his throne, he’s forgotten his source of power. His wand stands behind him forlornly, like a broken curtain rail.

It’s good to dress up. Clothes afford us self-expression and allow us to move through social worlds. When we forgot it’s all a game, however, vanity and self-interest  result. We start believing our own hype.

Reading: You look absolutely fabulous, but you’re expending all of your creative energy on outward expression. Don’t squander creative talent on unimportant worldly things.

Love

Four of Cups

Secrets; lies; deceit; even to oneself

Page 102

Description: A man stands in front of a table considering a scroll. He’s in some kind of library and has a merciless air about him.

Interpretation: This man is a collector of secrets and whispers. He’s Sir Francis Walsingham, Elizabeth 1″s ruthless spymaster. Or he’s George Smiley or his nemesis Karla. He’s Varys from Gamed of Thrones. He knows all the secrets. He has books full of them. As every writer of a thriller knows, to possess people’s secrets is to have power over them, to play them. Someone is pulling the strings.

Yet we also have an inner spymaster who’s in full possession of our lies, our half0truths, deceptions, and transgressions. He’s not exactly our conscience. Spymaster aren’t angles. But he knows when we’re lying to ourselves, and that is the worse lie of all. How can we hope to be true to others, if we’re not true to ourselves? When we lie to ourselves, we end up needy of others, constantly asking them to make for the deficiency we feel inside. It’s extremely tiring to be around someone who constantly says, “I am the greatest at this!” or “I am the best at that!” when we all know they aren’t. But when we’re open and honest to ourselves, the spymaster loses all power. He can’t touch us. He can’t get a purchase.

Reading: Is someone keeping something from you, or you from them?

Health

King of Cups – A Court Card

Balance; emotions contained through self-discipline

Page 111

Description: A king sits on a throne, which is a giant cup. He isn’t armoured and doesn’t wear a crown. He looks at the world askance.

Interpretation: The King of Cups appears a little stern, but I think he’s a good king, He’d probably treat you fairly. However, if you look closely, you’ll see he has a prize fighter’s nose that has been broken more than once. And those fists. They’d crack your jaw with one easy hook. He’s seen many a brawl, many a scrap.

The fact that his throne is a giant cup suggests he’s in control of his emotions now, that when the red mist comes down he can hold the anger back, keep it in check. But the cup is pretty huge and he’s had to work hard to keep all that emotion from brimming over. Whatever he did in his youth, the king has completed an anger management course and is a better person for it. He’s a spiritual warrior has achieved self-mastery. The he has found inner balance is indicated by his symmetrical posture. He encourages us to find the still point within, to calm the ripples, an be still.

Reading: The card suggests self-mastery and self-disipline, the containment of emotions.

 

Wealth

Fortune – Number 10 in the Major Arcana

Fate; impermanence; changing times

Pages 40 and 41

Description: A Romany fortune teller steps out barefoot over the rolling chalk uplands, know in England as the Downs. The entire tarot deck wheels about her, all except for three cards that tumble to the floor.

Interpretation: Traditionally this card depicts an allegorical scene: a hand cranks the wheel of destiny. As the wheel turns, it raises some up to greatness, while others casts others down from their lofty heights. It’s salutary reminder that fortunes change.

Here the wheel is the tarot itself, whirling around a Romany fortune teller. The cards falling to the floor are going to reveal exactly which way the wheel is turning.

Our Fortune is kind of a fantasy Gypsy you’d want to run away with, like the “Gyptians” from fairy tale or folk song. But can you trust her? IS she everything she seems? Do you really want to know what she sees with those piercing eyes of hers? What if it’s not good news? Those clouds rising behind her could be fluffy clouds of fine weather, or the billowing galleons of a summer storm.

To work with the tarot—-to seek to know —is risky. There’s always the chance that you’ll learn something you’d rather not. The lesson of Fortune is that, for good or bad, everything changes. The wheel never stops turning. Enjoy what you have, right now, for you never know what’s coming in the morning.

Reading: At it’s simplest, this card indicates changing fortunes. How the card is placed in the spread, and whether or not it’s reversed will suggest that change is for better or worse. Whatever the world throws at us, we can choose how to respond. In that sense, we make our own fortune.

Witches’ Rune

From The Summer Goddess Book of Shadows

The Moon

Relying on old ways of doing things could impede your success if you do not handle the moon’s intuitive energy properly.

Drawing the Moon Stone suggests wisdom gained through experience of memory, but does not mean you should stay in a rut or stick to the kinds of habits that only forfeit your success.

The idea of family, home and ancestors is important now. Such memories may well be the key you need to unlock a certain puzzle that is troubling you.

Drawing the Moon Stone says that there will be a
sudden shift in the circumstances surrounding the immediate question. Bide your time before initiating any kind of action.

Now is the time to pay attention to your dreams.

Gort

G is Gort, the Ivy that sometimes grows freely, but often parasites upon other plants. It will grow in nearly any condition, and its endless upward spiral is representative of our soul’s search for self, as we wander between this world and the next. Gort, pronounced go-ert, is connected to growth and wildness, as well as confronting the mystical aspects of our own development and evolution. Also connected to the month of October and the Samhain sabbat, Ivy often lives on after its host plant has died–a reminder to us that life goes on, in the endless cycle of life, death and rebirth.

In folklore from the British Isles, Ivy is believed to be a bringer of good fortune, particularly to women. Allowing it to creep up the walls of your home would protect inhabitants from baneful magic and curses. It also appears in love divination in parts of England; it was said that a girl carrying Ivy in her pockets would soon see the young man who was meant to be her husband. Medicinally, an Ivy tonic could be brewed to keep away diseases such as whooping cough and respiratory ailments It was even believed to keep away the plague, but there’s no clear evidence that this worked.

Gort Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Banish the negative things from your life, and eliminate toxic relationships. Place a barricade of some sort between you and the things or people that would bring you down.

Magical Aspects: Look inward to find self-growth, but turn outward to find spiritual companionship with like-minded individuals. If you’ve thought about joining or forming a group of some sort, consider it well if Gort appears.

I Ching

Hexagram Fouty – Two/42

Name: I.

Keyphrase: Increase.

Formed By The Trigrams: Wind over Thunder.

 

General: When accompanied by generosity abundance will endure.

Love: Do not be miserly in sharing your love with your partner.

Business: This is a time for furthering your business and for rewarding your staff generously.

Personal: Take the opportunity to help others and you will achieve great success.

 

Overview: Whereas Sun related to inequality and the need to redress it, I is the very opposite and relates to the time when the inequalities have been addressed. For the wealthier members of society this may initially mean a loss but in the long-term they will reap the benefits of a strengthened community. I tells you that this is a time of opportunity and that you should take advantage of it. And take advantage quickly for no situation is permanent.

Artemis 1: Flight Day 13

Image Credit: NASAArtemis 1

Explanation: On flight day 13 (November 28) of the Artemis 1 mission the Orion spacecraft reached its maximum distance from Earth. In fact, over 430,000 kilometers from Earth its distant retrograde orbit also put Orion nearly 70,000 kilometers from the Moon. In the same field of view in this video frame from flight day 13, planet and large natural satellite even appear about the same apparent size from the uncrewed spacecraft’s perspective. Today (December 1) should see Orion depart its distant retrograde orbit. En route to planet Earth it will head toward a second powered fly by of the Moon. Splashdown on the home world is expected on December 11.

Really Need a Mental Health Day

To make a long story very short. I saw the man who i got married to in 1998 and I am trying to divorce so I can marry Big Dawg showed up in the Zoom courtroom yesterday after having no contact with him for 22 almost 23 years. The 2 years we lived together as husband and wife was 2 years of verbal, emotional, and a few times physical domestic abuse. Seeing him brought back a lot of bad memories which raised my stress level throwing back into another bad fibromyalgia flare and a migraine.

I need to not have any responsibilities today except taking care of myself and getting my emotions back under control as they have been see-sawing since 10:30 AM yesterday.
