Fairy Cakes with Cream Icing

Actual fairy cakes are about the size of raspberries [All L. B. side notes appear in [ ]. My granddaughter and I collected larger sized acorn tops (these are used a dishes by Fae Folk) and then bake about 8 fairy size cakes in those. Baking time varies so check them after about 5-7 minutes to see if they are done]. Since it is hard to find baking pans that small, you can bake them in a muffin tin.


500 mL flour 2 cups

10mL Baking Powder 2 teaspoons

5mL Salt 1 teaspoon

175 mL [stick] Butter 3/4 cup

375mL White Sugar 1 1/2 cups

3 Eggs 3

5mL Vanilla 1 teaspoon

325 ml Milk 1/13 cup [L.B. Side Note: I found Whole Milk works the best but 2% or Skim will work also]

  1. Grease the muffin tin with a bit of butter [. B. Side Note: You can use muffin liners also]
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Cream together the butter and sugar, then add the effs and vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Add a few spoonfuls of dry ingredients then some milk to the cream mixture. Keep alternating ingredients until well mixed.
  5. Fill the muffin cups [and acorn tops if using them] three-quarters full. Bake at 180 degrees C (350 degrees F) for 20-25 minutes. [May take longer depending on your oven]
  6. Let cool before frosting with your favorite icing. [For me it was a light cream cheese frosting made with almond extract instead of vallia]

Goddess of the Day – Bast



In Egyptian mythology, Bast (also spelled Ubasti, Baset, and later Bastet) is an ancient solar and war goddess, worshipped at least since the Second Dynasty. In the late dynasties, the priests of Amun began to call her Bastet, a repetitive and diminutive form after her role in the pantheon became diminished as Sekhmet, a similar lioness war deity, became more dominant in the unified culture of Lower and Upper Egypt. In the Middle Kingdom, the cat appeared as Bastet’s sacred animal and after the New Kingdom she was depicted with a woman with a cat’s head carrying a sacred rattle and a box or basket.

Bast or Bastet was the cat goddess and local deity of the town of Bubastis or Per-Bast in Egyptian, where her cult was centered. Bubastis was named after her. Originally she was viewed as the protector goddess of Lower Egypt, and consequently depicted as a fierce lioness. Indeed, her name means (female) devourer. As protector, she was seen as defender of the pharaoh, and consequently of the later chief male deity, Ra, who was a solar deity also, gaining her the titles Lady of Flame and Eye of Ra.

The goddess Bast was sometimes depicted holding a ceremonial sistrum in one hand and an aegis in the other – the aegis usually resembling a collar or gorget embellished with a lioness head.

Bast was a goddess of the sun throughout most of Ancient Egyptian history, but later when she was changed into a cat goddess rather than a lion, she was changed to a goddess of the moon by Greeks occupying Ancient Egypt toward the end of its civilization. In Greek mythology, Bast is also known as Aelurus.

History and Connection to Other HodsDue to the threat to the food supply that could be caused by simple vermin such as mice and rats, and their ability to fight and kill snakes, especially cobras, cats in Egypt were revered highly, sometimes being given golden jewellery to wear and were allowed to eat from the same plates as their owners. Consequently, later as the main cat (rather than lioness) deity, Bastet was strongly revered as the patron of cats, and thus it was in the temple at Per-Bast that cats were buried and mummified.

When the owner died they would put the owner next to the mummified cat. More than 300,000 mummified cats were discovered when Bast’s temple at Per-Bast was excavated. Herodotus writes that when a cat in the family dies, Egyptians shaved their eyebrows and took the body to Bubastis to be embalmed.

As a cat or lioness war goddess, and protector of the lands, when, during the New Kingdom, the fierce lion god Maahes of Nubia became part of Egyptian mythology, she was identified, in the Lower Kingdom, as his mother. This paralleled the identification of the fierce lioness war goddess Sekhmet, as his mother in the Upper Kingdom.

As divine mother, and more especially as protector, for Lower Egypt, she became strongly associated with Wadjet, the patron goddess of Lower Egypt, eventually becoming Wadjet-Bast, paralleling the similar pair of patron (Nekhbet) and lioness protector (Sekhmet) for Upper Egypt. Bastet was the daughter of Amun Ra.

Later PerceptionLater scribes sometimes renamed her Bastet, a variation on Bast consisting of an additional feminine suffix to the one already present, thought to have been added to emphasize pronunciation; but perhaps it is a diminutive name applied as she receded in the ascendancy of Sekhmet in the Egyptian pantheon. Since Bastet literally meant, (female) of the ointment jar, Bast gradually became regarded as the goddess of perfumes, earning the title perfumed protector. In connection with this, when Anubis became the god of embalming, Bast, as goddess of ointment, came to be regarded as his wife. The association of Bastet as mother of Anubis, was broken years later when Anubis became Nephthys’ son.

Egypt’s loss in the wars between Upper and Lower Egypt led to a decrease in her ferocity. Thus, by the Middle Kingdom she came to be regarded as a domestic cat rather than a lioness. Occasionally, however, she was depicted holding a lioness mask, hinting at potential ferocity. Because domestic cats tend to be tender and protective of their offspring, Bast was also regarded as a good mother, and she was sometimes depicted with numerous kittens. Consequently, a woman who wanted children sometimes wore an amulet showing the goddess with kittens, the number of which indicated her own desired number of children.

Eventually, her position as patron and protector of Lower Egypt led to her being identified with the more substantial goddess Mut, whose cult had risen to power with that of Amun, and eventually being syncretized with her as Mut-Wadjet-Bast. Shortly after, Mut also absorbed the identities of the Sekhmet-Nekhbet pairing as well.

This merging of identities of similar goddesses has led to considerable confusion, leading to some attributing to Bastet the title Mistress of the Sistrum (more properly belonging to Hathor, who had become thought of as an aspect of the later emerging Isis, as had Mut), and the Greek idea of her as a lunar goddess (more properly an attribute of Mut) rather than the solar deity she was. Indeed, much of this confusion occurred with subsequent generations; the identities slowly merged among the Greeks during their occupation of Egypt, who sometimes named her Ailuros (Greek for cat), thinking of Bastet as a version of Artemis, their own moon goddess.Thus, to fit their own cosmology, to the Greeks Bastet is thought of as the sister of Horus, whom they identified as Apollo (Artemis’ brother), and consequently, the daughter of the later emerging deities, Isis and Ra.

The worship of the Goddess Bast continues today through Khemetic reconstructionalist religions, there are several ‘Bast Cults’ some of which may be found online and as such, technically, predates most Religions. In current day it is very common for Bast to be seen as a fertility goddess or even a goddess of lesbianism, despite the fact that research on her actual functions within the Egyptian pantheon is so very easy.

Flower Meaning, Symbolize, and Spiritual Meaning

Blue Flower Meaning: What Do They Symbolize?

From uniguide.com

Blue flower meaning and symbolism includes loyalty, truth, communication, tranquility, and other special qualities. The color blue evokes feelings of serenity and clarity. So, it strikes a beautiful balance when blue flowers are paired with more vibrant tones. In this post, we’ll explore blue flower meanings, types of flowers that are blue, as well as appropriate times to give them as gifts.

Types of Flowers that Are Blue

Before we go into more detail about what blue flowers signify, I thought you might be interested in a list of some of the types of flowers that come in shades of blue. Some of these varieties naturally come in shades of blue, while others are a product of flower science.

Also, different varieties of blue flowers may have their own distinct meanings. You can learn more about blue flower meanings for specific flower types by clicking on some of the flower names below.

What Do Blue Flowers Symbolize?

Here’s a quick list of some of the qualities that blue flowers symbolize:

  • Loyalty
  • Truth
  • Trust
  • Integrity
  • Communication
  • Knowledge
  • Wisdom
  • Tranquility
  • Nourishment
  • Being in flow
  • Spiritual growth

Blue is a serene and peaceful color that’s often associated with the sky, water, and clarity. In fact, surveys show that blue is most popular color in the world.1

So, blue flowers are beloved by many people and they have an array of popular associations.

To begin, blue flowers symbolize loyalty, truth, trust, and integrity. So, they make perfect gifts for a “true blue” friend or someone in your life who embodies these values.

In addition, the color blue is associated with the energy center in the body that is the fifth chakra, also called the throat chakra.

The throat chakra governs communication and how you express yourself. So, blue flowers make good gifts for people who are finding their voice or otherwise speaking their truth. Blue flowers are also empowering additions to gardens and flower pots for this same reason.

In addition to communication, blue flower symbolism also includes knowledge, sharing of information, and wisdom. So, they make wonderful gifts for teachers, parents, or other people in your life who have provided guidance.

In addition, blue flowers have a soothing and calming effect. So, they help to make places feel more serene.

In addition, they can be conducive to the creative process or being productive with work. Just like flowing water, blue flowers embody the concept of being in flow.

Blue Flower Spiritual Meanings

Blue flowers also hold important spiritual significance. For example, as they are associated with the water element, they represent the way that a spiritual practice, gaining knowledge, prayer, and meditation can nourish the soul.

Thus, blue flowers are associated with self-discovery and spiritual growth. For this reason, they make good gifts for those who are going through a process of expanding their spiritual awareness.

Or they are lovely to have in an environment or garden where you pray or meditate as they naturally add tranquility and a sense of peace to a space.

With their association with the fifth chakra, blue flowers are also positive symbols to have around when you are working balancing that energy center in your body. For example, you may be working on being more true to yourself and improving self-expression.

Furthermore, on a spiritual level, blue is associated with the sky and infinite possibilities. Thus, blue flowers symbolize the Divine and the positive forces at work in the Universe.

In summary, blue flowers bring a sense of tranquility, nourishment, trust, and other positive traits to any garden or other environment. They strike a beautiful balance with other flowers that are more vibrant oe flashy in hue because of their calming and clarifying effect.

Hexagram Tirty – Two/32

Name: Heng.

Keyphrase: Constancy.

Formed By The Trigrams: Thunder over Wind.

General: True persistence is a process of constant renewal.

Love: To deepen your relationship you should adapt to changes around you.

Business: You will be rewarded for the effort you have put into your business ventures.

Personal: Focus on self-renewal and make sure you avoid inertia.

Overview: Heng is telling you that the only sure constant in life is change. When mistakes are made in a particular strategy the same mistake is often repeated. It does not show strength of character to formulate the same strategy (even if it has worked in the past). Rather it shows a weakness in your refusal to adapt and change. There will always be obstacles in life. Some may be often repeated. If a strategy that has worked several times in the past does not work now then change your strategy. It is also about inertia and complacency. You should always be focusing on self-renewal and not becoming complacent. Avoid stagnation.

Thirty – Two

The 32 is more sensitive than other 5s, moodier, and has trouble committing to anything, including relationships.

The most vibrant, freedom-loving of all numbers in numerology

The Numerology Meaning of the Number 5: A DYNAMIC FORCE

The 5 is unpredictable, always in motion, and constantly in search of change.

Although it is molded from an almost equal mix of freedom-loving and loyal characteristics, the 5 is slightly more daring, and there is nothing submissive about it.

The 5 is extremely independent in mind and soul.

For an adventurer and risk-taker who has a hard time staying in one place, one job, or one relationship, the 5 is surprisingly loyal when the right partner comes along.

The 2 and the 6 are known as the most harmonious relationship numbers. Still, both will cheat on a partner when temptation is strong enough. The 5 will not. The 5 may break off a relationship due to their restless nature, but they will rarely deceive a partner. Although, when they are not in a committed relationship, they have no problem dating a different person every day of the week

The 5 generally doesn’t find a suitable career until they’ve tried several different jobs, some barely lasting long enough to warrant a full paycheck. This is especially true if there is monotonous routine involved; boredom sets in quickly for the 5 who simply cannot stand predictable, repetitive work.

But again, the 5 will surprise friends and family once they find their niche. This usually happens after age 30 when their focus, energy, and quick mind help them scramble up the ladder (faster, and with less apparent effort, than those around them).

Many 5s choose careers that require travel or otherwise offer a regular change of environment. People working in the travel industry, small business owners, independent consultants, lawyers, and those in sales often have the 5 in their core numbers.

The 5 can adjust quickly to pretty much anything coming their way.

The 5 is versatile, adaptable, intelligent, progressive, and tolerant. Convention bores them, and they are easily drawn to the eccentrics and misfits of society.

A social creature, the 5 is funny and uplifting, good at making others feel comfortable around them. They are generally well-liked and often surrounded by friends and acquaintances. However, they can also be polarizing, so people that are typically uptight, self-righteous, or judgmental are quickly aggravated by them.

Perhaps the most dominating trait of the 5 is the uncompromising demand for freedom in thought and action.

People with a prominent 5 in their core numbers make up their own mind, rebel against dogma and ideology, and recoil from clubs, cults, and religious sects. Their adventurous, daredevil nature may include riding motorcycles, but they will not typically ride with a large group. Chances are a 5 will be opinionated and passionate about political issues, but will remain independent of formal political parties.

A 5 may change their mind (regularly) but not without good reason. They won’t be controlled but are flexible and can be converted if the argument makes sense. The 5 has a healthy sense of humor and doesn’t sweat the small things. They carry their heart on their sleeve, and it’s not uncommon to give that heart to the wrong person – they are not always the best judge of character.

On the negative side, the 5 can be selfish, thoughtless, and irresponsible.

Rarely considering the future beyond next week, worrying is not in their nature. The 5 tends to procrastinate and can be unreliable. However, their most common downfall is a tendency to experiment with sex, drugs, alcohol, and other addictions. A desire for instant gratification, lack of restraint, and their feeling of invulnerability can be a recipe for disaster.

The shape of numbers reflect their nature, and just as the 4 is square and grounded, the 5 is a symbol of dynamic energy, elastic and constantly in motion.

Angel Number

From angelnumber.org

Three Thousand Two Hundred and Twenty-Three

It is the famous Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen who wins the prize for the best sentence which sums up the content of number 3223.

Ibsen says: “The community is a boat. Everyone must be ready to take control.”

Concretely, Grade 3223 will remind you that survival is our most primitive instinct, no matter how sophisticated we are.

When we feel threatened, we are able to make the most drastic arrangements with astounding strength.

Number 3223 – What Does It Mean?

There are three avenues open to you during this number that closes the second third of your 9-number cycle.

Left and right, you have what are called unstable bangs, opposite extremes. In the middle stands the central path of balance.

And it’s the latter that you’ll need to focus on. Number 3223 will be the number of awareness of your duties and responsibilities.

In the numerology of angel numbers, 3223 is the number of “adulthood”.

During the 3223 angel number, you will gradually feel a strong need for autonomy. You now want to establish your place in the world.

This number is likely to be the number in which you bond with another person, or at least the number in which you become aware that you are responsible for the well-being of another person.

So you’ll have to find a way to strike a balance between your situation and yours, even if it means making concessions.

In fact, the 3223 number is that of adjustments and sacrifices. This goes hand in hand with your new responsibilities.

You will need to show an unusual degree of patience, compassion, empathy and understanding.

Remember that love is harmless. It’s the lack of love that hurts. Some insecurities and complexes will no doubt rise to the surface.

You will have no particular difficulty in assuming them, or even in making them a force. You have evolved, you have grown.

As we have specified about the angel number 3223 this number closes a cycle of 4 numbers.

It is therefore a period during which the being who is in personal angel number 3223 must make a kind of assessment in his life.

Without turning around, because there is no point in living with the past, he has to look back 9 numbers and try to remember the projects he had developed, the initiatives he had taken, the choices he had made.

the actions he had taken, when he turned in number, to see if they had kept their promises and borne fruit and if, flow, showed up to his tasks, and finally to see what his successes and failures were.

This balance is mainly during the first three quarters of its angel number 3223 that he will have the opportunity to establish it.

Indeed, it will be time for him not only to learn from past events and his actions, but also to consider a probable renewal.

For of course the following number will be an angel number 3223, and a new beginning will be possible for him.

But he will be all the more apt to take this new start as he has stripped himself, got rid of it, detached himself from all that no longer has a reason to be in his life, which clutters or hinders him.

The Secret Meaning and Symbolism

The 3223 angel number will give you some social success. Magnetic power is on your side. It will serve you in many ways, but may very quickly pose more problems than solutions.

You will tend to attract opportunities but also dangerous situations.

Look for the problems and you will find them. The power of positive thinking is crucial here: make good use of it.

Replace what is left of your fanciful and utopian beliefs with more realistic designs, in line with your new sense of responsibility.

To solve your problems, favor peaceful solutions without making concessions that serve your interests. He time is on balance and questioning.

This is the number that ends the 9 number cycle. Emotionally tested over the past 8 numbers, you will now be faced with events that will directly depend on what you have sown in the past.

Pay attention: the main components of a new lifestyle will gradually settle into your daily life.

Take advantage of this number of conclusion to settle what is dragging, to finalize a project or on the contrary to abandon a case which becomes laborious.

Numerologists do not advise the initiative in the medium and long term at the risk of encountering failure.

Just make ambitious but realistic resolutions: this will be your roadmap for the next cycle.

On the emotional level, excitement and mild depression will alternate: what could be more logical in a number of assessment where you list your achievements and your failures … Your calculation of angel number gave a 9? Read the following.

Love and Angel Number 3223

Avoid making promises that you cannot keep. Indeed, after having proven themselves by managing their first major responsibilities with flying colors, those who live their 3223 angel number may want to assume certain responsibilities even if they are not their own.

Result: in order not to alter his credibility and his aura, he will gradually abandon his own needs to satisfy those of others. Resentment and frustration will inevitably follow.

Even if you have your own problems, you will feel like you are the advisor to everyone around you.

This goal will be affected by your need to be seen as a reliable and reliable person. For you, it is comforting to know that you are “approved” and that you belong to a certain privileged circle.

To decide with this situation which does not serve your objectives, you must stop judging yourself. You should also stop applying the company reading grid to your person.

Stop seeking approval from others and follow your own criteria. To do well in this personal 3223 number, you will once again have to take stock of your priorities. Prioritizing them is an essential prerequisite for your development.

Interesting Facts about Number 3223

Moments of temporary tiredness, lack of concentration, mood disorders and unstable sleep … you are not at your peak.

If you draw a rather positive assessment of the 8 numbers of your cycle, your relative physical deformity will be counterbalanced by the sweet feeling of the accomplished task.

If on the contrary, you feel that you have missed the boat during this cycle, avoid feeling sorry for yourself and rather prepare for the future by drawing the necessary lessons.

The risks of somatization are increased here because of your vulnerability: eczema, digestive disorders, rheumatism, arthritis and hypochondria can possibly give you a hard time.

Regular and moderate intensity sports can get rid of these health hassles. Prefer outdoor activities to get out of your deep introspection.

On a professional level, angel number 3223 is that of networking! Take advantage of the lull in the office to meet new people from diverse backgrounds.

You will thus prepare the first number of the following cycle to launch your most daring projects!

It’s time to refresh your designs and get up to date with the latest news from the world of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship.

If there are opportunities to travel abroad and your finances allow, don’t refuse. These wanderings will probably lead to great opportunities to be seized in the medium term.

Angel number 3223 is also the number of the completion of contracts, the questioning of partnerships.

Seeing Angel Number 3223

Yet he may also have the opportunity to meet, mingle, or date out-of-the-ordinary beings whose ideas and thoughts are original, and so it is in his best interest to remain flexible and available in his relationships, if he wants to be able to find them on his way.

Finally, throughout this number, he will not be immune to certain internal tensions or external pressures, which may make him excessive, rebellious, or even violent in certain circumstances.

If he succumbs to the temptation to misuse the new benefits that will fall to him this number, through one channel or another, he will inevitably suffer the consequences the following number.

From lords, it can be said that, throughout this number, his relations with money will be of great importance and will be decisive for his personal evolution and his future situation.

On the Temperance card, there is an angel with wings, whose gender is not immediately obvious, which suggests that there is a balance between the sexes. One foot of the angel is in water, to represent the subconscious, while the other foot is on dry land, a representation of the material world. On her robe, there is a square, which has a triangle inscribed inside, another echo of the tangible earth in union with the holy trinity. She holds two cups in a manner where she can mix the waters, which represent the super and subconscious minds. The water flows between them, suggesting union and infinity.

Everything about this card represents balance, the perfect harmony that comes from the union of dualities. Her advice is to test any new waters, before jumping into the deep end.

Upright Temperance Meaning

In moments where there is anxiety or great stress, you have been able to remain calm throughout. You are a person who has mastered the art of not letting things get to you, and this allows you to achieve much progress in all areas you seek out to explore. The Temperance tarot card suggests moderation and balance, coupled with a lot of patience. Where this card appears, there is the suggestion that extremity in any situation is to be avoided.

The Temperance tarot card suggests moderation and balance, coupled with a lot of patience.

The Temperance card implies that you have a clear vision and know what you want to achieve. This is an indication of higher learning, which is a critical attribute in the journey of life. It reflects that you have found peace with what you are doing and everything is unfolding as it ought to. The Temperance card, in relation to other people, shows that you are able to adapt and work in harmony with your community, your coworkers and your loved ones. Your calmness in all matters gives them comfort and puts them at ease.

Temperance may also indicate a time to evaluate and re-examine the priorities you have chosen. This will help you create a balance between your outer and inner self. At the end of it all, you will find greater purpose and meaning in your actions, for her message is that we cannot live fully in either.

Upright Temperance Tarot Love Meaning

In romance, the upright Temperance tarot love meaning suggests patience, moderation, understanding and going the middle path. This card indicates that we must avoid going to extremes, and to be cautious and thoughtful of our actions. Consider your actions when it comes to love; and in what aspects your attitudes, beliefs or thoughts can be excessive. Are you too pushy with potential partners? Or instead, are you too reserved? Are you too giving? Or are you not giving enough? How can you bring these traits into balance? In addition, your relationship or potential relationships may require some patience right now, and attempt to work together to find compromise and harmony.

Career Meaning – Upright Temperance

Patience and moderation may be helpful tools for you to achieve your career goals. You are likely to find what you desire when it comes to your work, but it may come slowly and quietly as you put in the work every day. Your dedication and ability to navigate emotionally charged situations at work with calm can help you be noticed by your peers and superiors. When it comes to making changes in your career path, the Temperance card can be a reminder to remain patient, steady and devoted; all good things take time. Temperance can also signal doing a good job in balancing your career with different aspects of your life; it is neither an all consuming ambition or just a paycheck to you.

Finances Meaning – Upright Temperance

The Temperance card can be a call to make sure that your approach to your finances is one of moderation and balance. This can mean that you’ve been diligent with saving, while also being able to treat yourself with something you can afford every once in a while. Over time, you may be building your resources with steady, diligent saving.

Reversed Temperance Meaning

Temperance in reversed is a reflection of something that is out of balance and may be causing stress and anxiety. The real meaning of the Temperance card can be deciphered using the other cards in the spread to identify areas where this imbalance is being caused. A Temperance in reversal may also be used as a warning;  if you take a certain path, it would lead to turbulence and excess.

Lack of a long-term plan or vision may also be the Temperance reversal meaning. This creates a lack of purpose for you, leaving you feeling lopsided as you search here and there for what you should be doing. You must reflect and think carefully about what needs to change. Temperance reminds us that all things are only good in moderation, and that we must examine in which aspects of our lives we are breaking the balance.

Reversed Temperance Tarot Love Meaning

In love, do you tend to think in all or nothing terms? Love, like many things in life, are full of grey areas. When reversed Temperance appears in a love tarot reading, your intensity may be surprising right now. Sometimes, no matter our best efforts, we can’t force love to come into being. You may benefit from being a bit more patient, while also making sure that your own emotions or desires do not go into extremes. When your date does something that is displeasing to you, do you tend to immediately reject them? Are you too demanding on your potential partners, so that nobody ever can satisfy you? It’s important to remember that humans can never be perfect; make sure your desires are reasonable.

Career Meaning – Reversed Temperance

Something at work may be suffering from a lack of balance right now. Do you tend to go all in when it comes to your work, so much so that other aspects of your life suffer? Are you always pulling all-nighters, hoping that it all pays off in the end? Or alternatively, do you find that you slack off, leading to resentment from your colleagues? While the former can bring you success, this can be damaging to you in the long term. If this applies to you, look to correct this imbalance. Ensure that when completing projects, you aren’t rushing through them or making reckless choices; the quality of your work may be suffering.

Finances Meaning – Reversed Temperance

Are you someone who always needs to buy yourself the next nice luxury? Or alternatively are you so frugal that you never reward your hard efforts with any small treat? It’s likely that both of these attitudes will need adjustment, as they are both untenable in the long term. The first always puts instant gratification over your future comfort, and vice versa. Consider your financial goals, and make sure you also put your own well-being in the picture; both your future well-being, and your present well-being needs to find a comfortable middle ground.

Berkana, the rune of the life process, another cycle rune, which stands for fertility, which leads both symbolically and actually to growth. Berkana is about the power to influence development and the nature in which it flows into your body. Its action is gentle and penetrating. Scatter the resistance first, then accomplish your work. To make this possible, your wish must be clear and controlled. Conversely, events, or, more likely character aspects distract the growth of new life.

Gifts, doorways, standing on the shoulders of giants, luck

Tree: Oak (Quercus spp.)

Letter: D

There isn’t a bad side to Duir, even when ill-dignified. Maybe it is because the mighty Oak is king of all trees and therefore king of the Ogham. Drawing Duir means that you will receive, are receiving, or have received a gift. The gift can come in unexpected forms — it could be as simple as a thought or it may be, in rarest of cases, an actual physical gift. Understanding Duir does take the prerequisite ability to appreciate gifts. The modern world is cursed with entire classes of people who take luxuries for granted and for whom gratitude is an untenable concept. Those people cannot be helped by any force other than glacial procession of time and the unimaginable powers that shape it.

Duir’s influence is like a good father or wise old grandpa: generous, kind, wise, full of knowledge and happy to share it, protective, and nurturing. He is a living library. He acts as a guide, creator, and ruler.

Questions when you draw Duir:

-When have you benefitted from good luck in a small or big way?
-How did you use that lucky streak?
-Where would you be without certain privileges or gifts you lucked into?
-In what way have gifts either helped you or prevented you from becoming a better person?

Duir ill-dignified excess: Plain luck

Usually this points to a mundane moment of good fortune. You’ll remember something just in time or you’ll barely squeak by a deadline. You are grateful for your many gifts even if you feel you didn’t deserve them. Instead of worrying about your privileges and gifts, use what you are given to make yourself a better person. If you are upper-middle class to rich, simplify your life and give away the lion’s share of the excess instead of wallowing in constant luxury (vacations, status symbols/activities, parties, fancy meals, etc.) and then feeling guilty about it or expecting indulgences will cure your depression. Think about the gifts you have been given: did they prevent you from learning a skill that a poor, more streetwise person knows?

If you are poor, consider the gifts you have that don’t have anything to do with money. This includes talents, drive, and common sense. Jesus made that “a camel will pass through the eye of a needle more easily than a rich man will pass into the kingdom of heaven” comment for a reason.

The best way to appreciate gifts is to pay them forward. This does not automatically mean donating to a charity, as many charities are corrupt and donating to them does nothing or worse, actively harms others or makes them more dependent on charity. Paying it forward can be very simple — a heartfelt thank you or a small kindness for someone else to spread the kindness done to you. Maybe your lucky moment gives you sufficient energy correct some of your own past behavior. There is no effort wasted in trying to live up to your own potential.

Duir ill-dignified dearth: Possible enabling

A gentle reminder to set reasonable limits in order to care for yourself. You have given much away because it feels good to spread generosity around; don’t forget to save some time and resources for yourself. Of course you can still give to those in need, but if someone (be it a person or a cause) only uses your donated time, money, or energy to destroy themselves and others, it is time to withdraw some or all of your assistance. There may be a worthier person or cause where your help will actually be used rather than squandered. Remember you are not the maker of another’s karma — sometimes it is better (for them and you) to stand back and let forces act upon them, even if said forces are cruel taskmasters.

“Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.” -Old Shaker melody

Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is an excellent day for serious discussions with others, especially younger people. (You might talk to a friend or a group.) These discussions will likely be practical, and will have a long-term benefit for you in the future. Write down your ideas.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Any research that you do today might impress bosses, parents and VIPs. They will see that you have done your homework and made an extra effort to get all the facts, as well as solutions to problems. This makes you sound like you know what you’re talking about! (And you do.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Although you generally enjoy the company of others, today you’re not in the mood for frivolity. You want answers to questions. You also want to take a long-range view of something, especially in practical terms. This could possibly include involved travel plans.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re high viz. today, which means people notice you more than usual. (Be aware of this in case you have to do any damage control.) Meanwhile, take a thrifty and careful approach to discussions about shared property, taxes, debt and inheritances. What are your obligations?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is an excellent day for some serious study. You might also want to do research for an important paper, manuscript or something related to legal or medical matters. Whatever you do, you will do carefully with thought and precision. Good day to make challenging travel plans.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Set aside some time today to tackle red-tape issues you might have been avoiding – paperwork about inheritances, taxes, debt, insurance and all that fun stuff. The fact is you have the concentration, and attention to detail that is necessary to do the job today. Get as much done as possible.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Do what you can to get along with others today, including partners and close friends, because you will prefer being alone with your thoughts. If you are interacting with others, you will want to take a serious approach to get things done. And why not?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a productive day for you because you are focused and serious about what you want to do. You want practical results for your efforts. Furthermore, you will pay attention to detail and do everything carefully. You’ll be like the wise carpenter: “Measure twice; cut once.”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Those of you involved in the hospitality industry, the entertainment world, or working with children will be productive today because you are willing to roll up your sleeves and deal with practical situations. You have a strong sense of duty and obligation, which is why you want to do things right.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

An older family member might have good advice for you today. Meanwhile, if possible, you will be happy to be alone with your thoughts and feelings today. It’s not that you are antisocial; you just want some quiet time to think about your approach to something. (Sounds like a plan, Stan.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a good day for serious discussions. It’s also an excellent day to learn something, especially a practical skill or specific facts about how to do something. You might get an excellent suggestion from someone older or more experienced than you. (Never hurts to listen to free advice.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The Sun in your sign now gives you vigour and confidence! Meanwhile, lucky Jupiter is in one of your Money Houses boosting your ability to earn money and get richer. Today, a discussion with someone older might benefit you financially. Stay tuned.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Aziz Ansari (1993) shares your birthday today. You are quietly confident. You’re an excellent listener. You’re efficient and capable. You have a strong style of expressing yourself.
