If You Were Born Today, August 30

You are an extremely generous person who will bend over backward to help out a friend or loved one. You are that especially thoughtful person who remembers the “little things” about others. You are also very perceptive and people-aware. A humanitarian, you are sentimental without being sappy. At times, you may have a tendency to micro-manage your family and loved ones, as you seem to worry a lot about your future and your loved ones’ happiness. You may need to be careful with this so that others don’t perceive you as controlling or critical. Moodiness can be a problem for you at times. Learning to detach yourself and take a step back from situations will help you to better succeed in life. Your finances tend to fluctuate more than most. You are attracted to talented and successful people. You may have to deal with restlessness and changeability in your partnerships. Many of you go through many ups and downs in love. Famous people born today: Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Ashley, Shirley Booth, Mark Strong, Peggy Lipton.

Your Birthday Year Forecast

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

Until December, you continue to benefit from a transiting Saturn trine to your Sun which was with you last year as well and is an especially grounding influence. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one and the appreciation of slow but steady progress. Stabilizing elements in your life are appreciated.

This is a time when you feel confident and supported enough to pursue your desires. It’s a good time to take steps towards making yourself feel more secure and safe, and for family or domestic activities. This is also a period when you more readily support or defend your loved ones, and they do the same!

Energy fluctuates this year, however. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.

You might also watch for a tendency to overstate and to neglect important details when making plans. You may have so very many ideas that you end up implementing none if you’re not careful! You are likely to have increased opportunities for travel and/or new learning experiences.

Intensity can characterize your personal relationships and romantic attachments. Passions, feelings of jealousy, and possessiveness run high. You may deal with these emotions in yourself, but you may also need to handle the jealousies and possessiveness of a partner. You might also experience compulsive attractions and attachments, or attraction to complicated love relationships. As well, you may have some tension over your personal finances, and/or need to make a large payment that necessitates changes in your spending habits. Finances may be complicated, such as power struggles with money. You are also very determined to make changes which can be good for you in the long run.

Even so, you’re likely to strengthen and solidify another key relationship. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships, are also highly likely.

Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the greater good this year.

Fortunately, transiting Uranus harmonizes with your Sun from June 2019 forward. Your personality is sparkling during this period, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life. Exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize the period ahead. It’s easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You can find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success under this influence.

It is easier than ever to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you in the year ahead. In certain areas of your life, you’re inclined to rock the boat this year so that you can break free from a limiting situation. Be mindful when/if making sweeping changes. Some relationships (or a key one) can be turbulent, while another strengthens. Special care with finances is wise this year. Teaching and learning can be in strong focus.

2018 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

2019 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of discovery and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise, promote, and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken for the better. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, diversify, mingle.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Aug. 30

Continue with the enhancement of your leadership credentials that began yesterday with the moon’s transit in dynamic Aries. There are few obstacles to your path ahead in the early hours, but later on the moon squares Mars (4:05pm) — providing a not-so-subtle warning to steer clear of antagonizing associates and partners with expressions of anger. This lunar link to the red planet starts a 2 hour void lunar condition that lasts until the moon enters earthy Taurus at 6:31pm. Ingenious ideas have the capacity to assist you in financial affairs as Venus makes a contra-parallel with Uranus (9:39pm) quickly followed by the monthly union of the moon with Uranus (10:52pm). However, a strong emphasis on Uranian aspects can equate with a rise in anxiety and the need to expect the unexpected. Welcome a rock-solid approach to important business and professional interests as a grand triangle in earth signs begins tonight with the moon’s trine to Saturn in Capricorn (11:18pm) while another lunar trine to the sun in Virgo approaches – forming exactly at 9:43am tomorrow.

[Note to readers: All times are now calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

We’re motivated by a strong desire to start fresh. A gut instinct to start something new is with us now, as well as the gumption to do so. Our pioneering impulses are strong, and we feel energetic, spontaneous, and enthusiastic. We may also be tactless and impulsive now. Excess energy is best channeled into physical activity.

The Moon in Aries generally favors the following activities: Quick actions that yield immediate results. Undertakings that involve the self and the personality. (Staying power may be lacking). Self-assertion, taking on challenges, beginning short-term projects.

Magickal Applications for Thursday

 

Well, let’s see … abundance, prosperity, and good health has been our focus for this day. Now how about a little more information and ideas for working practical magick with one of our fascinating featured deities of the day?

Juno was the Queen of Heaven. As the matriarch of the gods, she guarded over women in every aspect of their lives. Juno was thought to have renewed her virginity every year. Similar to other goddess stories, Juno was a triple goddess-a virgin who belonged to no one; a mother and woman in the prime of her life, sexual and mature; and also a crone, powerful, wise, and sometimes vengeful (as she made her husband’s many mistresses’ lives either fairly unhappy or short).

There are references to an early all-female triad of goddesses known as the Capitoline Triad. This triad consisted of Juventas, Juno, and Minerva. To the Greeks, they would have been known as Hebe, Hera, and Hecate. Ultimately the triad became Juno, Minerva, and the male Jupiter. Jupiter, another of Thursday’s gods, was Juno’s consort.

As mentioned earlier, Juno, in her aspect as Juno Moneta, was the patron and protector of the Roman mint. The coins produced at her temples were blessed by Juno and imbued with her powers of abundance and prosperity. In another of her aspects as Juno Augusta, Juno was the goddess of an abundant harvest.

In addition, another of Juno’s magickal correspondences is the semiprecious stone malachite. Malachite is a beautiful green-banded stone that was also called the “peacock stone” in Italy. The peacock was a sacred animal of Juno’s, and the magickal energies of malachite encourage health and prosperity.

Thursday is “Thor’s day.” This Norse god gave the day his name and many of his attributes, including strength and abundance. Some suggestions for Thursday enchantments would include: Wearing a regal and royal shade of blue to see how it affects your mood and your magic. Other colors for the day include purple and green

Carrying a turquoise tumbled stone in your pocket to draw a little protective and healing energy your way

Incorporating honeysuckle blossoms and cinquefoil foliage into prosperity charms

Calling on Thor for abundance, or on the Roman god Jupiter for the ability to peacefully referee a fight

Adding a few oak leaves—which are sacred to these Thursday gods—to your charms to see how much better your spell works out

Casting a charm with wheat stalks for prosperity, and calling on Juno Moneta to bring wealth into your life

Thursday is also associated (in Greek mythology) to Thor – Thor’s day – and some even say that Jupiter and Thor are one in the same. Both are strong and powerful, yet wise and just. Try a small prayer to Jupiter before commencing any ritual on Thursday as a sign of respect. This is the proper day of the week to perform spells and rituals involving luck, happiness, health, legal matters, male fertility, treasure, wealth, honour, riches, clothing, money, desires, business, group pursuits, joy, laughter, and expansion.

 

The Third Quarter Moon Phase – Come to the “reaper”

glittery pentacle ^.^
The Third Quarter Moon Phase – Come to the “reaper”

Now the threatening old man arrives with his scythe in order to remove, destroy, liberate, clean, clarify, and separate.

This is your “funeral.”

Let go of your fears and doubts and release them; let the detachment process occur peacefully. Don’t fight it, and avoid unnecessary conflicts.

Rest…

Let the ropes become detached.

Break down negativity and discard it. Get rid of negative habits, destroy negative or unhealthy relationships, defuse hostile situations.

Let go!

The energies are decreasing, diminishing on their way to the source, so let what you don’t need in your life decrease and go with them.

If objectives are not accomplished, or were not accomplished during preceding stages, this is the time to deliberate and ask “Why?” Instead of throwing yourself into hard work, work at getting rid of those inhibiting patterns.

Finish what can be finished now, and let other aims and objectives die, or leave them behind you in order to begin them again at the next stage.

Clean and purify your space. Wash clothes. Throw out anything you don’t need.

Magickal Suggestion for Thursdays

glittery pentacle ^.^

Magickal Suggestion for Thursdays

 

Try wearing some honeysuckle-scented perfume to encourage prosperity. Bewitch someone by wearing deep royal blue or brighten up a dreary day by wearing lucky, prosperity-drawing green. Brew up a pot of mint tea to help increase your cash flow. Try adding a pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon to an unscented candle to encourage some fast cash. Bake up a loaf of wheat bread for the family, and celebrate abundance and be thankful for all that you have.

Conjure up a witchy craft and create a philter or two for your magickal needs. Work with the deities and the magickal plants corresponding with Thursday.

How did the energies of the plants of Jupiter enhance your magick? What did you learn by working with Juno, Jove, or Zeus? The truth is that by adding these new techniques and information into your spellcasting repertoire, you will indeed advance your skills, thereby moving up in the ranks to become a more adept magickal practitioner

Just by believing in yourself and working toward creating abundance, health, and prosperity, you have already begun to transform your outlook on life. Put your game face on; think positively. Work with Thor for perseverance and courage, and apply those qualities to your own prosperity spells and healing witchery. Break out the tarot cards; How could you incorporate that symbolism into other spells of your own design?

Use your imagination, check Thursday’s correspondence list, and see what other bewitching things you can conjure up for prosperity magick all by yourself. Call on the gods and goddess of Thursday and bring some positive change, abundance, health, and prosperity into your life!

The Witches Guide to Thursday

The Witches Guide to Thursday

 

Today is the day for prosperity work of all kinds. It can also be used for healing work, whether that is a physical healing of an illness or an emotional healing. Also remember that you have to follow up your healing work and prosperity magick and physical action.

I can’t tell you the number of times I have met new witches who complain to me that their prosperity spell or “I need a better job” spell did not work as they expected. They’ll ramble on and on about how much time and money they spent working their magick….but, alas, they had no glorious manifestation of wealth or fabulous job that suddenly dropped out of the sky and landed in their laps.

Then, when I gently ask them, “Did you enchant your resume or application when you filled it out? Did you do a little confidence-boosting spellwork when you went to apply for the job or went to the interview?” typically they give me a blank, confused stare.

Nine times out of ten, their response is, “You mean I have to go out and actually look for the job too?” Um, yes, my dear, you certainly do. Magick follows the path of least resistance, which means it’s going to manifest along the simplest, quickest route. Get out there and hit the pavement. See what you can find. Times are tough and competition for good jobs is fierce, so you need whatever edge you can get. For folks like us, we’re going to get the edge by using our magick and our spellcraft.

Thursdays have such a rich source of magick for us to draw upon that, honestly, the sky is the limit. This is the day associated with the gods of the sky and heavens, after all. Get to know these deities and add their wisdom and magick into your days
