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)

0 The Fool – Major Arcana

Pages 20 and 21

Description: A fool strides across the English countryside. He wears a fabulous multicolored costume. A hare gambols at his feet.

Interpretation: Here comes the Fool. Not a care in the world. Everything he says and does seems to turn out okay without his even trying. He’s the embodiment of effortless non-doing. All his possessions are wrapped up in just one knotted handkerchief. But is that mad look in his eye? Is he the village idiot, cuckoo-brained, a moon-calf? There’s a darker side to the Fool. He might be a trickster, an unraveller like Loki or Raven or Coyote or Efnysien, someone who brings chaos to the world, just because he can. He does suspiciously like Guy Fawkes. Or perhaps he’s the wise fool, able to speak when others cannot.

Traditionally, the Fool is regarded as the hero setting out on his magical quest. Of course, he starts from a state of pure innocence. Why else would he need to go adventuring? He needs to learn about himself and the world. That’s why his number is zero. Zero the hero. He starts with nothing.

Usually the Fool is accompanied by a small dog, but here Rex has given him a hare instead. According to mythology, the hare is wise and mad all at once, just like the Fool. As with any mammal that survives by running fast, hares have disproportionately large hearts—it’s what gives them oomph to escape the hounds. How appropriate. Like the hare, the Fool’s heart is huge and wide open. There might be a sheer drop in front of him, but he’d step right over and land without a scratch.

Reading: Embrace the Fool, take a leap into the dark. If he appears reversed, then it’s time to stop acting the fool. You’re not coming from a place of open-heartedness.

Fehu

Sound: “f”
Stands for: Cattle
Color: Green (Brown)

CROSSROADS

This rune indicates a more difficult path where things are not so easy.

The Crossroads represents not only quarrels and misunderstandings but also discipline and mastery over the self.

It is not necessarily bad luck, but rather slow, substantial gains.

The Crossroads suggest maintaining the status quo, understanding boundaries and limitations, make a sustained practical effort, practical matters and solid achievement.

Relationships may be on shaky ground when one of these elements is sacrificed at the expense of another.

This rune stresses basic concerns and could indicate feeling boxed in. There may even be a feeling of discouragement. But you will soon discover innate strength and resources giving your achievements more meaning.

COLL/CALL

C, sometimes read as K, is Coll, which is the Hazel tree. August is known as the Hazel Moon, because this is when Hazel nuts appear on the trees–the world Coll translates to “the life force inside you”, and what better symbol of life than the nut itself? Hazel is associated with wisdom and creativity and knowledge. Sometimes it is connected in Celtic lore with magical springs, sacred wells, and divination.

Hazel was a handy tree to have around. It was used by many English pilgrims to make staffs for use upon the road–not only was it a sturdy walking stick, it also provided a modicum of self-defense for weary travelers. Certainly, it could have been used as well for ritual. Hazel was used in weaving of baskets by medieval folk, and the leaves were fed to cattle because it was believed this would increase the cow’s supply of milk.

In the Irish myth cycles, there is a tale that nine hazel nuts dropped into a sacred pool. A salmon came along in the pool and gobbled up the nuts, which then imbued him with wisdom. A variation of the story appears in the legend of Finn Mac Cumhail, who ate the salmon and then took on the knowledge and wisdom of the fish. Note that Mac Cumhail is often translated as Mac Coll.

Coll Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Take advantage of your own artistry or creativity, and share your knowledge with others so they too can practice these arts. Lead by example, and teach those who wish to learn. Find inspiration for your creative gifts, whatever your talent may be.

Magical Aspects: Let the divine guide you in your creative journey. Speak to the gods through your art, and be rewarded with inspiration. If you’re stuck in a creative rut, call upon the Divine to send you a Muse.

Hsu reminds us that periods of waiting are a necessary part of life and that that time is not wasted when you are waiting with the confident knowledge that sooner or later the drought will end.

Numerology

FIVE

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.

HARE

Although hares and rabbits look similar, they have very different symbolism.  A hare is bigger than a rabbit, has longer ears, and possesses more powerful hind legs.  The two most abundant kinds are the European Brown Hare and the Snowshoe Hare.  The Snowshoe Hare is strongly linked to the Snowy Owl population, such that when hare populations are down, the owls stop breeding, and even die from starvation.  The hare is more solitary and tougher than the rabbit.  Hares don’t live in warrens or have maternity nests.  The young hares are born so well-developed that they can fend for themselves within a few hours of their birth.

The hare is associated with a number of myths from many different cultures.  The Algonquin tribe honored the Great Hare as a demiurge, a role in the creation of the world.  The Egyptians also saw the hare involved in a creation story.  For them, the hare came to mean procreation, and then immorality.  While the hare is often associated with impatience and haste (like the “Tortoise and the Hare” fable), it’s important to note that other cultures, like the Goths, saw the hare as fleet and swift, and symbols of diligence.  This reflects the attitudes of medieval hunters, who viewed hares as a challenge to catch.

Hare people are considered sensitive and artistic, and also linked with ambition, fitness, and virtue.  However, the hare is not just associated with positive things.  Hares are also thought of as greedy and selfish, even a bad example for people.  Hare is seen as a jokester, linked with trickery and fraud.  Even those with hare medicine are clever, often unreliable, and frequently thinking of themselves.

Although hare has some qualities that are less than redeeming, there are things he can teach us.  Because they move in leaping and hopping motions, those with rabbit and hare totems can expect changes in their own lives in the same kind of movement.  Hare can also aid people in recognizing the signs around them by attuning to lunar cycles and understanding the tides of movement in their own lives.

Some of the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence for Wednesday

From learnreligions.com

Wednesday is named for Woden himself, although the Romans called it dies Mercurii. This is a day associated with the color purple, the planet Mercury, and the metal quicksilver—which is also called mercury. See a pattern here?

When it comes to deities… yes, Mercury! However, there are a few other gods associated with Wednesday, including Odin and Hermes, Athena, and Lugh. Gemstones like adventurine and agate come in handy as well, as do plants such as aspen trees, lilies, lavender, and even ferns.

Business and job-related issues, communication, loss and debt, traveling, and journeys are all tied into Wednesday. This is a good day to do a working to open up lines of communication—especially if your actions are preventing you from being an effective speaker or listener. Go someplace new or return to an old favorite stomping ground, step up your game, and settle up your accounts.

Tarot Card

From Tarot for the Green Witch by Ann Moura Copyright 2003.

Ace of Swords – Decision; activity

Pages 86 and 87

Baby Fire dragons are hatching out of a nest among the lower fire vents on the slope of a volcano. A Celtic sword visible behind the nest stands upright and has craved dragons twining around the hilt. In the background the volcano is glowing and blowing smoke. The clouds are dark with reflections of fire on them. Fire symbolizes physical, mental, and spiritual strength and action. This strength can manifest either as destructive power or regeneration, depending upon the intent and self-discipline of the individual. The sword also has much the same meaning: strength and defense, the power to liberate or wound. Potential for self-destruction is represent by the active volcano in the background. Our lives are often disrupted by cataclysmic events, which sometimes seem to destroy our lives and turn them upside down. If we can learn to harness the fire of these events, we can walk safely through the flames and come out stronger tham we were.

Divinatory Meaning: You are in the process of making decisions that will effect your life for some time. A new period or cycle of much activity is imminent. Beware of activity without thought.

Scythe

This rune means to cut away, to put an end to something, to sever or separate, possible something you have depended on vanishes from your life. You can now move to the next level and begin anew

When the Scythe Rune turns up in a reading this indicates certain changes must occur and time must pass before a coming to terms with something that is hard to accept.

You may experience a passing through of difficulties before reaching a new level.

Walls and blocks may see insurmountable at the current time. But the Scythe implies you have the strength and fortitude to overcome all difficulties that you now encounter.

nGeatal/Ngeadal

Ng, or nGeatal, is the Reed that grows straight and tall at the riverside. Long ago, it was considered the perfect wood for arrows because it was so perfectly formed. Symbolic of music and flutes, the Reed indicates direct action, and finding purpose in your journey. It is connected with health and healing, and with gatherings of family and friends.

nGeatal Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, it’s time to take on a leadership role. Often, it indicates a need to rebuild that which was destroyed. Use your skills and ability to put things in order, and guide situations onto the right track. Think before you act, and be proactive rather than reactive.

Magical Aspects: Although you may encounter some bumpy spots in the road, ultimately your spiritual journey will be a fruitful and productive one. Understand that the lessons you learn on your way are equally as important–maybe even more so–as the destination itself.

Formed By The Trigrams: Fire over Heaven.

 

General: Those who understand the responsibility that comes with wealth are the ones best fitted to maintain it.

Love: Enjoy the current harmonious period but do not allow yourself to become complacent.

Business: Opportunities for business success will be there if you look for them. Do not allow yourself to become greedy though.

The meaning of “14” is “support for angels”

Angel number “14” indicates that the angel is helping you to make your positive thoughts a reality. Are you always thinking of positive thinking? Seeing your hard work, an angel is helping me.

If you have trouble switching from negative thinking, ask the angel to think positively. It makes it easier to switch feelings.

“1” means “new start”

Angel number “1” means “new beginning”. It is the beginning of the numbers, and it has the strong power to bring a “new start” from the beginning of everything. There may be turning points and changes in your surroundings, such as work and love, that change your life.

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.

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.

Ogham

From Ogham Symbol Gallery 

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.

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.

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. This phase is best viewed just before the sunrise in the western sky. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Visit the November 2022 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Ace of Cups – Minor Acrana

Love; friendship; emotions; feeling

Page 98

Description: In this coat of arms we see the Holy Grail. The legend reads “water my blood” and urges us “to keep silent.”

Interpretation: The Ace of Cups is the element of water at its more pure. It’s the refreshing spring bubbling up from the rocks, the trickle that will become a great river meandering to the sea. It’s the beginning of some new emotional journey. It’s the first flush of love and the aching love of life. It’s a pure feeling. It’s the Holy Grail.

Reading: The Ace of Cups represents a spring, a fountain, and the opening up of emotions. It signifies love of every kind, from romantic love to friendship. If the card is reversed then something is damming the water supply, leading to stagnation. Unlock the channels. Remember how to feel.

Always a good omen, the Sun Rune means something of value is coming your way. You can look forward to taking a bold step, embarking in a new direction.

Some may be carried out of their daily grind by unexpected and fortunate events. Other will be made aware of added responsibility and will have to deal with it.

Expect public promotions and public affairs. Look to be amazed, dazzled or even shocked by scandals. An older person, or person of authority could have the answers you are now seeking.

Accept your position as a mover and shaker of the world. For you, the time is right to head for the spotlight.

Onn/Ohn

O is Onn, or Ohn, and represents the Gorse bush, sometimes called Furze. This yellow, flowery shrub grows on moors all year long, and is full of nectar and pollen. It’s a food source for many animals–the stalks are munched on by grazing livestock–but eventually Furze is set on fire. This controlled burn allows old deadwood to be gotten rid of, and clears the way for new life to begin. Gorse (Furze) represents long-term thinking and planning–knowing that sometimes we have to do without in order to gain things in the future. Gorse is a determined sort of plant that always comes back, and so it is also connected with perseverance and hope.

In some pieces of Celtic folklore, the Gorse is used as a protective barrier. Planting it around one’s home would keep the Sidhe away, and it can be shaped into a broom for sweeping away negative influences.

Ohn Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Whatever you’ve been looking for is right around the corner–keep pursuing your goals, because they are within your reach. If you aren’t sure what path you should be on or which direction you should head, sit down and make a list of goals. Figure out the destination, and then you’ll be able to focus on the journey.

Magical Aspects: Your spiritual journey has provided you with an abundance of gifts. Don’t keep these blessings to yourself–share them with others! If you’ve been asked to take on a role as leader or mentor, now is the time to do so.

“The polarities of your spiritual pursuits and physical pleasures are out of balance, so do whatever is necessary to bring them back into equilibrium”

Pages 24 to 26

When on a spiritual path, it’s easy to idealize what being spiritual means. It can become a rigid mental imprint upon which you judge anything that varies from your conceptualization of what “being spiritual” is suppose to be about. This includes not only another person’s practices and beliefs, but your own. Falling short of this idealism leads to either assuming a righteous and arrogant position with others, or when self-imposed, elicits guilt and shame.

This spiritual perfectionism can make you reticent about enjoying the pleasures of the material world, as well as those of your physical body. The Earth Herself provides a dazzling and sensual panorama of experiences to be directly encountered through the physical senses. Yet for many, truly enjoying the pleasures of senses of sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell can be fraught with worry, anxiety, guilt, and shame—products of early childhood religious and/or cultural conditioning. Others become so entangled in the world of senses that it becomes their god, and their spiritual core is lost to materiality.

To be polarized in one direction or another takes you either to lofty heights and iridescent abstractions that are completely ungrounded, or else causes you to become caught up in the glue of the mundane world without the guiding light of Spirit to provide a locus of authority. With the blessing of your awareness, you can redirect your thoughts and actions towards that which brings greater balance and fluidity between two polarities.

Hexagram 61

Chung Fu / Inner Truth

The gentle Wind ripples the Lake’s surface:
The Superior Person finds common ground between points of contention, wearing away rigid perspectives that would lead to fatal error.

Pigs and fishes.
You may cross to the far shore.
Great fortune if you stay on course.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

The subject of this hexagram discovers a key to Tranquility by first gaining insight into his own nature, then turning that vision outward.
By resolving inner conflicts and being at peace with himself, he learns to gain insight into others.
In effect, he enters another, sees with the other’s eyes, listens with the other’s ears, feels with the other’s heart.
He then returns to his own center, with new perspective and understanding.

Two

Harmony is your nickname. You thrive in relationships – with your romantic partner, family, friends, coworkers, or even the salespeople at stores! You talk to everyone, you are down to earth and people love your presence. You are the life of the party! But sometimes, maintaining the peace in a relationship is so important to you that you forget who you are and make sacrifices that aren’t reciprocated. Learn to stand your ground and put your foot down when necessary. In matters of business, 2 is a great number for successful partnerships. If your life path number is 2, or if the digits of a date adds up to the number 2, know that it’s the best energy to enter into business agreements and create projects through teamwork. 2 is a wonderful omen for signing peace agreements between countries, making up for past mistakes between lovers, and to make any past wrongs right.

Ioho

Grace, death, letting go, endings, rest, the beauty of decay

Tree: Yew (Taxus spp.)

Letter: Y

Ioho symbolizes the acceptance of enduring realities and legacies of the past. If you draw Ioho, look for the end of a phase or cycle. Ioho suggests you are handling or will handle the matter at hand with dignity and grace.

Modern culture has spent a great deal of time running away from the ideas of death and decay as natural, welcome processes. As a result, we have a society obsessed with launching our species into space for fear of extinction, a medical industry bent on extending life long after it has ceased to have any quality, and a fixation on youth that motivates the middle aged to undergo brutal, grisly procedures in order to look twenty. When we frame aging (not just of human beings) in a sensible way, we understand that getting old isn’t so terrible. People age and die. Technologies change. Weeks become years. Eras fade away. Letting go is for the best.

Ioho is about accepting limits gracefully. We cannot control much…

April’s Full Moon

I took these pictures standing our side yard in north central Illinois, USA about 9:55 PM CDT. Not the greats pictures of Luna but the best I can do with my cellphone.

Can you see the pink corona around the Moon?

A beautiful, clear night with just enough crispness in the air. I could have stay outside watching her for hours this evening but I was already in my pajamas when I found out it was clear instead of cloudy as it was supposed to be.
