Monday

From learnreligions.com

Monday is the day of the moon itself, and it’s a day that’s connected to lunar colors like silver, white, or even a pale blue. Metals and gemstones like silver, pearl, opal, and moonstone all come into play today.

There are plenty of deities associated with the moon—Thoth and Diana for instance—and herbal correspondences include many members of the mint family. Utilize wintergreen or peppermint, as well as catnip, comfrey, sage, and chamomile in your workings.

When it comes to Monday magic, because of that lunar connection, it’s a good time to focus on workings related to childbearing and family life, purity and virginity, healing, wisdom, and intuition. Do a little bit of self-exploration and work on developing your intuition—learn to trust your gut. Celebrate birth and life, and make some magic to fix what is broken.

Past

6 of Cups – Minor Arcana

The children in this image are of different ages, but they are playing happily together. The sky is clear, showing no discord or storm. The cups are green and growing, indicating that there is plenty of opportunity for growth and change. In the distance, an adult with a spear is walking away, taking any strife out of scene. Like all Sixes, the Six of Cups represents harmony and possible solutions to outstanding issues. The past position reveals to you an important influence from the past, and what might have happened to bring things to the point where they are now. You cannot change the past, but by understanding it, you can learn from it, so you don’t make the same mistakes again. The Six of Cups is reminding you that it’s okay to have happy memories, but you can’t live there. You’ve been trying to recapture the past, and it’s not worked. Perhaps you were given some kind of a gift that took you back to happier times, or you may even have helped someone else to walk down memory lane. This card can indicate a pleasant reunion with past friends and lovers; or a trip back to a childhood place, such as your parents’ or grandparents’ house. It can also refer to any children who may be in your life.

Present

Page of Cups – Minor Arcana Court Card

The scene on this card is fairly tranquil. The water is reasonably calm and the sky fairly clear. The Page of Cups rests his hand on hip, confident and self-assured. He lifts his goblet to take a drink, and suddenly, a fish pops out and stares at him! Now what will he do? Like all pages, the Page of Cups is a messenger. This card could also refer to a child. The present position reveals to you a pivotal influence in the here and now, and what actions may be necessary for you to start to change things. You cannot alter what has already happened, but by taking immediate action, you can start to mold the future, and change the potential outcome of the events that the past set in motion. The Page of Cups reveals that your intuition is working overtime. You may be experiencing vivid dreams, or hunches that prove to be correct. Your emotions are intense and easily expressed, and your creativity is highlighted. Something has caught you by surprise, though; how are you handling it? This card can also point to new romance. Like all of the court cards, this card can refer to you, or someone else in your life.

Future

10 of Swords – Minor Arcana

There’s nothing joyful about the image on this card at all! However, don’t panic. It’s not as dark as it seems. The Ten of Swords is telling you that something is well and truly over, and there’s no point trying to resurrect it. Even though the card looks like a crime scene, it has some very positive qualities. The river is pure and still flowing. The sun is still shining behind the mountains in the background. Yes, there’s pain and loss here, but there’s also the hint of new beginnings. Like all tens, the Ten of Swords is a card of completion. The future position reveals to you a critical element about what’s yet to come. To understand it you need to carefully examine the previous cards. You cannot change the past, but by analyzing it and then taking action in the here and now, you can change the course of your destiny. This card shows you the potential of the situation, so that you can best know what to do next to make things happen to get your desired results or to bring about necessary changes to avoid repercussions. When the Ten of Swords is inverted, you’ll feel forced into something–not necessarily tangible, but life is going to come at you thick and fast and it will make you adapt, whether you want to or not, whether you’re ready or not. Even though this will be traumatic, it will open new doors for you. You’ll hesitate, wondering how you can get through this situation with the least amount of heartache, but your hesitation will only prolong the inevitable. Just because this is ending badly doesn’t mean that everything else will. It’s time to let go of the worry.

Rune

JERA

Harvest, Fertile Phase, One Year

Jera, eine Rune des guten Gelingens, bezieht sich auf jede Aktivera, a rune of good success, refers to any activity or effort you devote yourself. To see this rune is an encouragement to remain in good spirits. But you should know that quick results cannot be achieved. A period is always associated, therefore the keyword “one year”, which stands as a symbol for the full cycle of time that is before the harvest or exemption/liberation.

Witches Rune

From tarotingie.com

Harvest

Blessings of investing in yourself. Rewards. Seeing the ‘fruits of your labour’. Providing for yourself. Can mean self-employment. Education.

Ogham

From psychic-revelation.com

The Birds

Keywords: Unexpected news, change.

Meanings: The Birds Rune means some unexpected news that may alter your life completely. Especially if this is the leading rune. Generally the news will lead to a positive change but pay close attention to the nearest runes to determine its nature. It can also mean news of riends or family that you haven’t had contact with in quite a while. Letters and documents should be watched for as they may well bring happiness.

Hexagram 8

Pi / Bonding

Deep Waters on the face of the Earth:
Surface waters flow together.
The Superior Person recognizes the situation calls for joining together.
Thus he cultivates friendly relations with all.

Good fortune is possible.
Cast the coins again to discover if you have the qualities needed to lead such a group.
Then there will be no error.
Those uncertain will gradually join.
Those who join too late will meet with misfortune.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

This is a time of connection with another or others — not just an alliance, but a melding of parts into a new whole.
Such a connection may be too close, too intense for some.
Consult the oracle again to see if you have the qualities needed to strengthen and withstand such an intense synthesis.

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.

Angel Number

One Hundred Seventy – One

Every day we don’t see the numbers. I think you often see numbers such as digital clock numbers and car numbers. When you see or care about the same number over and over, it’s said to be a message from an angel. Angels use numbers to send us messages. This is called an angel number, and each number has a meaning, and it depends on the number of digits and the arrangement.

The meaning of angel number “1” is “I want you to continue making efforts to achieve your wishes.”

“1” is a number that represents the beginning. By taking action and moving in a new direction, it becomes a reality.

It is also a number that symbolizes that we are connected by invisible vibrations and thoughts, and that everything is one.

Make an effort to achieve your goals and aspirations with a positive feeling

Angels always wish us success and prosperity. When the angel number contains “1”, it means that you should have a positive feeling and continue to make efforts to achieve your goals and aspirations.

The meaning of the angel number “7” is “the road you are on is right”

Angel number “7” has the message that the road we are on is right.

You can continue what you are doing to fulfill your soul’s purpose and mission. The angels are always there to help you, so you can expect more results than you think.

The meaning of the mirror number “171” is “it will be realized only if you have a positive feeling”

A mirror number is one that has the same number on the left and right with the middle number in between. “171” is a mirror number because there are “1” on the left and right and “7” in the middle.

When reading the meaning of the mirrored numbers, add the meaning of the middle number to the meaning of the left and right numbers.

Positive feelings lead to reality

A “1”, which means to keep going positive, surrounds a “7”. In order to “achieve goals and aspirations by following the right path as it is”, which means “7”, it means that it will be realized only if there is a positive feeling.

The basic message of angel number “171” is “Achievements are beginning to appear.”

The following message is included in the angel number “171”.

Let’s continue what we have been doing with confidence. That way, you’ll soon be successful.

Realization accelerates by improving skills

It may also be time to improve your skills. Let go of your fears and don’t miss the opportunity to improve your skills. If we work positively, the reality will be further accelerated.

Even in love, it is best to continue in this state. However, don’t take it for granted that the other person will be there, and try not to forget your gratitude.

Finally

Angel number “171” shows the result that the efforts so far will be rewarded in the near future.

Among the mirror numbers, numbers smaller than “171” such as “161” have many messages about thinking, but the energy of “171” has a strong element that expresses the result.

Your wish for success has always reached the wisdom of the universe. If you often see or care about “171” these days, thank you for receiving this message.

Sparrow

In certain Indigenous traditions, spirit animals represent a spiritual guide in embodied form. Your spiritual guide may appear to you in the physical shape of an animal that you are accustomed to. You may find that a spirit guardian or power animal from the animal world resonates with you. A certain quality that your animal friend offers may make it possible for you to manage life with a bit more solace, assurance, and faith.

Every human being goes through something traumatic, but it is important not to lose faith during those times and seek help in the spiritual realm. The deities that watch over us, will provide assistance and care whenever we are in need, as long as we understand how to connect with them on a deeper level.

Not a Goddess but a Wife of a God – Enarete

Greek – ENARETE WIFE OF AEOLUS

Gods – Aeolus

Aeolus – Greek God Of Wind

Aeolus

Aeolus is the name of a few different characters in GREEK MYTHOLOGY, but the one most commonly associated with the name is the god of winds. He plays a key role in Homer’s Odyssey, in which he’s also known as the keeper of the winds. This Aeolus, from the story, was originally human, but in later classical writings he was treated as only a god.

AEOLUS FACTS

Name(s): Aeolus/ Aiolos
Rules over: Wind, Air, Island of Aiolia
Title: God of the Winds and Air
Gender: Male
Symbols: Open Bag
Sacred animals: Kingfisher
Items: Harp
Parents: Hippotes & (possibly) Melanippe
Consort: Cyane
Other significant others: Retinue: – Anemoi
Children: 12 Children according to Homer, though varying accounts across different stories
Roman name: Aeolus

Aeolus – God Of Wind

The god of wind was the son of Hippotes, who was mortal. Aeolus himself was king of the island of Aeolia and befriended ODYSSEUS when his crew was stranded on the island. The friendship led to Aeolus bagging up all the winds except a gentle westerly wind, which would help Odysseus get home (this Aeolia was located near Sicily, and in real life is part of the Lipari Islands). But his crew got greedy and, after deciding the mysterious bag must hold untold wealth, opened the bag and released the other winds, which only prolonged their journey home.

In Other Myths

Aeolus is also the name of a half-human son of POSEIDON, the OLYMPIAN GOD of the sea, and the name of another human who may have been the ancestor of the other two. The god-of-wind and son-of-Poseidon Aeoluses are often confused by writers.

The third Aeolus, the son of Hellen and a nymph, Orseis, married Enarete and lived in another area called Aeolia, which later became Thessaly. This version had a daughter named Arne, who later gave birth to the Aeolus who was the son of Poseidon. The son of Poseidon, when not conflated with the god of wind, is sometimes treated as a grandfather of the god of wind, and also as the founder of Lipara in the Lipari Islands. It was extremely confusing to Greek writers and historians, too.

Meaning And Symbolism Of The Moonflower

Also referred to as the moon vine, the moonflower is a plant whose flowers bloom only at night, hence its name. They often have white blossoms, but some varieties have purple ones instead, but all of them are powerfully fragrant and give off a romantic vice.

During the day, the flowers of the moon vine are closed off like tiny buds that are only one or two inches wide.

However, after the sun sets, they slowly open wide as if to welcome the moon and can expand up to seven inches wide. This is why the plant has often been associated with the moon.

What Does The Moonflower Symbolize?

The moonflower’s appearance, fragrance, and behavior make it appear mystical and romantic, leading to deep symbolism attached to its presence. Here are ten of the most popular meanings of the moonflower:

1. Divine Existence

Several cultures revere the moonflower due to its association with gods and mystical beings.

The presence of this plant serves as a reminder that there are mystical experiences in the world that cannot be explained by logic alone.

For example, the ancient Greeks believed that the flowers on the plant represented the tears of the moon goddess Selene. Aside from this, the moonflower is also thought to be associated with Hecate, the goddess of witchcraft and magic.

Even the phases of the moon have been associated with the female reproductive cycle.

With the moonflower’s deep connection with the moon, the plant has also become linked to feminine energy. As such, it is often used in lunar rituals to help attract the power and energy of the moon.

In some countries, such as Cameroon and Thailand, the moonflower is recognized for its medicinal properties.

4. Duality And Contradiction

While the moonflower can help heal physical and emotional illnesses, it can also have a toxic effect.

The contrasting effects of the moonflower make it a symbol of duality and contradiction, as it can heal and cause harm at the same time. Because of this, the plant and its extracts must not be ingested randomly.

It must be taken with caution, subject to the approval and monitoring of a medical professional. Improper use of this plant can result in heart problems, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Some people also experience psychological effects like agitation, confusion, anxiety, or hallucinations.

5. Spiritual Guidance

With bright flowers that only bloom at night, the moonflower is often seen as a symbol of guidance.

It helps illuminate the dark paths at night and accompanies spirits in their journey. With this, some cultures believe that the plant can help them commune with otherworldly beings like ghosts and spirits.

In some countries, the moonflower would be planted around gravesites so they could help guide the souls of the departed on their way to the afterlife. The Japanese would also use the moonflower in ceremonies to honor the dead.

6. Dreams And Fantasies

Its oneness with the night also makes the moonflower a symbol of sleep and dreams.

The plant’s deep connection with the moon gives it psychic abilities as well. As such, it is often the flower of choice for people who are fascinated by the unknown or those who want to explore the mystic realm.

Some cultures believe that the plant carries the powers of the moon goddess and is thus associated with mystery and magic. Others claim that placing a moonflower under your pillow will allow you to receive visions or prophecies through your dreams.

7. Growth And Determination

As the petals of the moonflower remind you of the moon, its climbing vines stand for growth and change.

This is primarily because of its remarkable ability to survive in different kinds of environments and even in unlikely places, like abandoned lots or cracks in the sidewalk.

The plant also makes use of night creatures like moths and baths to aid in pollination, enabling it to reach new territories and establish its presence there.

This shows its resilience and determination to keep on surviving, despite unfavorable conditions. As such, the moonflower can serve as your inspiration when you are going through challenges in life.

8. Fertility And Reproduction

Each moonflower plant is able to produce hundreds of seeds each year.

These seeds fall to the ground and self-propagate, getting themselves ready for growth in the next season. This means that the plant can grow by itself without the need for special nurturing or human intervention.

Because of these abilities, the moonflower has been associated with fertility and reproduction. In some cultures, such as in China, the plant is given to new mothers as a sign of goodwill.

9. Protection And Shelter

Its association with the moon goddess also makes the moonflower a symbol of protection.

The blossoming of the flowers at night represents the watchful eye of the goddess, who is believed to protect those sleeping under her radiance.

The large petals of the flower also curve around the center as if to protect it from outside elements that may cause it harm. Aside from this, the delicate fragrance of the flowers also have the ability to ward off evil spirits, thus protecting night travelers from harm while on their journey.

10. Blooming In Adversity

While most flowers look best under the shining rays of the sun, the moonflower reaches its peak beauty at night.

This is a reminder that it is possible for you to bloom and achieve your full potential even in the middle of difficulties.

The moonflower shows you that there is beauty in darkness as it shows off its pretty petals and spreads its fragrance at night.

If you find yourself faced with challenges that prohibit you from growing or moving forward, let the blossoms of the moonflower show you that there is opportunity even in adversity.

Conclusion

The moonflower is known for its unique behavior of closing up its petals during the day and opening them up at night.

This behavior has associated it with the moon along with Selene, the goddess of the moon, and Hecate, the goddess of witchcraft and magic.

Because of this, the plant has been attributed with meanings related to protection, divine presence, and spiritual guidance. Moonflower is also both a healing and a toxic plant, which gives it a symbolism of duality and contradiction.

Meanwhile, its ability to produce hundreds of seeds and to grow even in unexpected places enables it to represent fertility, growth, and determination.

Aries

Finances will definitely be a weaker point for you this day so try not to spend a weekend that is over your budget. You need to watch your spending thoroughly in order to have money to pay your bills at the right time.

Taurus

Gemini

This Sunday is going to be great time for you to start making arrangements on plans that involve travel or study because you will be able to find the right course or journey opportunity.

You will be buzzing around all kinds of ideas and eventually the right one will sparkle in front of you. Don’t go global with your plans, start local and see where this will eventually take you.

Cancer

It seems that you will prefer to spend your day dreaming with your eyes open. To be honest, it’s more like you are completely lazy and unwilling to do anything today so you prefer to think of a hundred things and imagine how great life could be.

Well, maybe it’s time to get up and see where that great life is hiding because it might actually be in front of your eyes.

Leo

Having this Sunday off will give you a chance to take a ride in that creative mind of yours. Don’t hesitate dreaming with your eyes open because this is today’s opportunity.

Libra

Today might prove to be quite a difficult day in terms of human interrelations for you so be patient.

Scorpio

It seems that this Sunday will be quite a revealing day after all. The worst part is that the things you might find about are not going to give you any reason to rejoice.

There might a conflict with someone close bursting or maybe you realize that your better half is not that honest and might not be going in the same direction as you are. Check these incompatibility signals thoroughly.

Sagittarius

Capricorn

This Sunday you will probably get the chance to do something romantic. Be it that you spend time with your significant other or you take someone special out.

There is a great time for you to speak about of your feelings openly and reach out to the person you like as there are also high chances for these feeling to be mutual. So don’t hesitate on doing something special.

Aquarius

This Sunday won’t bring you any reasons to rejoice and won’t either let you breathe. There might be some things you need to talk through with your family or partner and this weekend is the best chance you can get.

Pisces

Today you will probably feel the air of change and even an inner desire to do things differently. But for most natives, these might not be the best impulses to act on and they should try to temper themselves and mind the important things.
