Your Magickal Guide to Mondays

 

In the word Monday, we can see part of the word Moon. In the romance languages such as Italian or Spanish, this day of the week is called Lunes and clearly relates to the word lunar.On Mondays, a variety of magick may be worked. Because Monday centers on the energies of the Moon, things like psychism, dreams, feminine energy, health, success in spiritual pursuits, domestic matters, and things of family origin are especially important this day.

 

Mondays are best for love magick and anything concerning home or family, thus old saying, Mondays child is fair of face, which seems clearly to relate to the themes of love and health.

 

Angels of Monday are Gabriel, Arcan, Missabu, and Abuzaha. Arcan is known as the king of the angels of air and the “ruler” of Monday. Abuzaha (Abuzohar) serves Monday, and is very responsive to invocations and ritual magick. Missabu is a ministering angel of Arcan.

 

Check whether the moon is waning or waxing to determine what your spell will be. During waning moons, do spells to rid yourself of obstacles or for wisdom and protection. During waxing moons do magic for increase of any kind or to draw something into your life.

 

On Mondays, the best hour to work is moonrise. Get this information from your local newspaper, astrological calendar, or almanac.

Tuesday & The Perfect Corresponding Spell – A Mirror Spell of Protection for the Home

Possessed by you

A Mirror Spell of Protection for the Home

 

Compose an altar: place a censer in the center before an image of the Goddess. Have a 12 inch (or so) round mirror there as well. Ring the altar with 9 white candles. Burn a protective incense (such as sandalwood, frankincense, copal or rosemary) in the censer. Beginning with the candle most directly before the Goddess image, say these words:

 

“Lunar light protect me!”

 

Repeat as you light each candle until all are glowing. Now, holding the mirror, invite the Goddess in Her lunar aspect with these words:

 

“Great Goddess of Lunar Light and Mistress of the Seas;

Great Goddess of the mystic night and of the mysteries;

Within this place of candles bright and with your mirror nigh;

Protect me with your awesome might while ill vibrations fly!”

 

Standing before the altar, hold the mirror facing the candles so that it reflects their flames. Keeping the mirror toward the candles, move slowly, clockwise, around the altar, watching the reflected firelight bouncing off your surroundings.

 

Gradually increase your speed, mentally invoking the Goddess to protect you. Move faster and faster; watch the light shattering the air, cleansing it, burning away all negativity and all lines along which the ill energies have traveled into your home.

 

Charge you home with the protective light of the Goddess. Race around the candles until you’ve felt the atmosphere change, until you feel that your home has been cleansed and guarded by the Great Goddess.

 

When finished, stand once again before the image. Thank the Goddess in any words you wish. Pinch out the candles one by one, bind them together with white cord and store them in a safe place until (and if) you need to use them again for this same purpose. Say:

 

“In no way will this spell cause me

to suffer any adverse effects!”

 

 

The Full Moon & The Perfect Spell – Prayer to the Maiden to Bring Joy to Life

Goddess Hera Prayer to the Maiden to Bring Joy to Life

 

(For best results, say this prayer on the Chaste Moon. Good results can also be obtained during the Waning Moon.)

O Maiden of pubescent joy
I call You forth to now
destroy
All fear and stress, all angst
and strain
All energies that cause me pain
And leave within that empty space
Your wondrous childlike joy and grace
Your happiness,
Your smiling face
So that my heart is light and free
By Your Name, so mote it be

The Witches Magick for Friday, November 11 – Ancient Gypsy Love Spell


Veteran's Day Comments
Ancient Gypsy Love Spell

 

This enchantment is best used to win a man who has not requited the feeling of love which the lady holds for him.

In a red vase or pot, plant a small ivy leaf (the ivy carries the idea of constant, ever-growing and reviving love). As the plant is watered, repeat this spell, with eyes closed:

As this shrub grows And as its leaf blows,

Let his love arise for me.

Thereafter, nurture the plant carefully. If it grows well for you, you will gain the one you love.

Daily Magickal Applications for Friday

 

Friday is named after the Norse goddesses of love, Freya and Frigga. There seems to be some debate as to whom the day is actually named after, so I thought I would share a little information so you can decide for yourself.

 

In Latin, this day is known as Dies Veneris, “Venus’s day.” In Greek, it’s Hermera Aphrodites, which translates to the “day of Aphrodite.” In Old English, this day is called Frige- daeg, or “Freya’s day.” This day has the Germanic title of Frije-dagaz, which, once again, could be Freya’s day or Frigga’s day.

 

Both Freya and Frigga were Norse goddesses of love and were the Teutonic equivalent of the Greco-Roman Venus/Aphrodite. However, Freya was one of the Vanir—the gods of fertility who supervised the land and sea—and she was the leader of the Valkyries. Frigga, Odin’s wife, was the goddess of the heavens and of married love. She was one of the Aesir—the gods associated with battle, magick and the sky. Freya and Frigga could be looked upon as different aspects of the same goddess. They both were called on to assist in childbirth and then in naming of the new baby. Frigga represented the faithful wife and loving mother, while Freya, who really captured the hearts and imagination of the Norse people, was the passionate mistress and lover.

 

Fridays classically are days for love, fertility, romance, and beauty magick, as well as working for happiness, harmony in the home, and friendship. So let’s take a look at some of the mythology involved with this loving, voluptuous, passionate, and luxurious day of the week, and see where it leads us.

Thursday, November 10th

Thursday is the day of the planet Jupiter, dedicated to Thunor(Thor), God of thunder and agricultural work. His parallels in various European traditions are Zeus, Taranis, Perun, Perkunas and St. Olaf. The faith of the Northern Tradition holds Thursday sacred, just as Islam reveres Friday, Judaism the Sabbath(calculated from sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday), and Christianity, Sunday. This is why almost all adages about Thursday are positive, such as “Thursday’s child has far to go,” “Sneeze on Thursday, something better,” or “Cut nails on Thursday for wealth.” Thursday rules controlled optimism, energetic growth, physical well-being and material success.

Today is Thursday, November 10, We Celebrate

Celebration of the Goddess of Reason (France)

THE GODDESS OF REASON

Themes: Logic; Reasoning; Learning; the Conscious Mind Symbol: A Crown of Oak Leaves (representing the seat of the divine)

About the Goddess of Reason: While this lady had no other specific designation other than the Goddess of Reason, she dispenses the power of knowledge to those who seek her. The French honored this goddess with celebrations at Notre Dame, the world’s most acclaimed center of scholarship. Traditionally, the woman depicting her wore a blue robe and red cap, then was crowned in laurel at the end of a processional.

To Do Today: To improve conscious awareness and logical abilities, tuck a bay leaf in your shoe today so the Goddess of Reason walks with you. Or, wear any garment with predominantly blue or red coloring to invoke her powers through color therapy!

Today is an excellent day to take up any course of study you’ve been considering. Burn incense blended from dried sage (for wisdom), rosemary (for memory improvement), and mint (for alertness). If possible, pre-prepare the incense at noon to accent conscious awareness and the rational self. Move your study tools through the smoke of the incense, saying,

Goddess of Reason, see my

desire.

Ignite in me knowledge’s fire!

Finally, wax an oak leaf(press it in waxed paper with an iron) and keep it in a book you’re studying. This keeps reason with you while you read.

Magical aspects: controlled optimism, energetic growth, physical well-being, material success, expansion, money/wealth, prosperity, leadership, and generosity.

Thursday is the day of Jupiter, the largest of the planets and said to be the most powerful.

Spellcasters would be wise to use this day for attempting wealth, success and prosperity spells.

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

 

bar-birdThursday Is Ruled By Jupiter

Thursday is a Jupiter day. Here is the day of the week for prosperity, abundance, and good health. 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

Baking up some whole wheat bread and blessing it for abundance. Be sure to thank the gods for your family and your good health.

Let’s Talk Witch – Basic Steps for Writing Your Own Spells

When it comes to witch craft, making a spell is easy— it’s just like creating a new home cooked meal recipe; but, of course it requires practice. So, let’s just stick to how spells are generally done and later on I will give you some of my tried and tested spells for love, money, and healing.

Your Purpose

The first step in doing a spell is to know what the purpose of the spell is. The goal has to be specific. For example, if you are looking for love, a love spell won’t do the trick because are you already eyeing someone? Or maybe you want an ex to come back to you? Or maybe you still need to meet that special someone. This is how specific your purpose should be.

Materials

The next step if finding the ‘perfect’spell and gathering all the necessary materials to do the spell. You can also make your spell by making use of ‘correspondences’ as these are lists of items with their corresponding purposes. Take for example you can use the herb Damiana which corresponds to lust and love. To make a spell, would need around 2 to 5 items are sufficient. You can also make use of crystals or candles and work with colors too.

Words

When casting a spell, using words best help you to focus your intention and energy. There are also spells that already have words included. But if you are making your own spell, then you have to be creative when it comes to creating chants.

Timing

Although this is not as important as other steps in casting a spell, but with right timing it can add additional power to your spell. For a little magickal boost, you can pick the right phase of the moon or the right day of the week. Check out some correspondence tables to boost the power of your spell.

Put It All Together

Many people believe that just by chanting the words of a spell and going through the motions will lead to a successful spells. But in reality, what makes a good spell powerful and successful depends on your focus. You have to focus on what you are doing and you have to take your time. Thus, it means you need to learn the spell before you begin. You also need to visualize the energy and your intentions as vividly as you can— and this is the hardest part when casting spells because it takes practice and experience.

 

Best Days for Casting Spells

Sunday (Sun) – this day is corresponds with health, happiness, accomplishment, strength, abundance, and general success.

Monday(Moon) – this day corresponds to fertility, female energy, dreams, psychic skills, spirituality, kids, and family.

Tuesday (Mars) – this day corresponds to dealing with conflict, conquering obstacles, independence, action, and energy.

Wednesday (Mercury) – this day corresponds with education, career, jobs, knowledge, communication, and creativity.

Thursday (Jupiter) – this day corresponds to legal matters, business, finances, and wealth.

Friday (Venus) – this day corresponds with sexuality, social status, marriage, family, relationship, romance and love.

Saturday(Saturn) – this day corresponds with meditation, binding, banishing, overcoming habits, discipline, and protection.

The Witches Magick for November 10

A Spell to Expand Self-Awareness

Do this spell on a Thursday, because that’s Jupiter symbolizes expansion. If you can’t do it on a Thursday, then definitely do this during a full moon, on any day except Tuesday (Mars) or Saturday (Saturn). The object should be something solid and three-dimensional: a stone, for instance, versus a photograph. The crystal can be any color, but should be clear. It will amplify your desire.

Tools:

Frankincense oil

Myrrh oil

An amber-colored candle

Object that represents personal power

Quartz crystal

When: Preferably on a Thursday night during a full moon

Pick a spot where you won’t be disturbed. If it’s temperate where you are, this spell works nicely outside, under the light of the full moon. Put several drops of both oils into your burner and place it on your left. Put the amber-colored candle on your right. The object that represents your personal power and the crystal should go directly in front of you.

Light the candles, then throw open your arms to the moon. Vividly imagine its light suffusing you and say:

This light is presence,

This light is power.

It fills me

Until I am presence,

Until I am power.

Allow the aroma of the oils to permeate the air, then pinch out the flames. Place your power object in a safe place. You may want to let your crystal soak in saltwater overnight to cleanse it. Or, you can leave it outside where the light of the full moon will charge it.

Celebrating Legends, Folklore & Spirituality 365 Days A Year For November 10

Martinmas Eve, Celebration of the Goddess of Reason

The old Pagan festival of Nincnevin, later Martinmas Eve, honored the Goddess Diana and her entourage. At Martinmas, the Germans celebrate this time by feasting on wild geese and then using the breast bone of the last goose to predict the weather for the coming months. It is believed that if the breast bone be fair and clear when the flesh has been eaten off it, the weather will be cold and full of hard frosts. However, if the breast bone is dark then the winter will be full of rain, snow, and sleet but warmer overall.

During the French Revolution, this day was celebrated with a parade through the streets of Paris. A young woman was chosen to represent the Goddess, and led the processional to the cathedral of Notre Dame, considered a center of learning, ing, whereupon she was presented with a crown of oak leaves. It was hoped that the festivities would make the people aware of the importance of learning.

9th November – 19th December 2016: Mars in Aquarius

We Are the Battleground

In an air sign, Mars energises our mind and mental processes which can be useful for some and less so for others, depending on how our mind usually works! If you tend to be full of racing thoughts, living in your head, Mars in Aquarius may enhance this tendency and it will be important to stay as aware as possible of just how much energy you invest in the mental realm. If, however, your mind struggles to keep up on a good day, its arrival in Aquarius may be just the tonic you need! No matter what sort of mind we have, this planetary shift encourages us to more innovative thought and a renewed relationship with our intellect.

Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, is still entwined with Eris in Aries, kicking up a storm. While Mars enters Uranian realms and Uranus travels through Mars-ruled Aries, these two powerhouse planets join forces to wake us up and keep us moving whether we like it or not! Mars in Aquarius demands that we act in the interests of the whole, not the individual self. It requires ice-cold detachment when it comes to matters of personal interest and a willingness to forfeit immediate personal satisfaction for the greater good. When the god of war journeys through the sign of brother and sisterhood, the fight becomes one of integrity. It demands a firm standing in our own truth, a courageous heart not afraid to see through wide-open eyes and attention to the sacred core in all beings, deserving of bold and audacious love.

The Aquarian ideal, of an egalitarian world in which all are treated with the respect life itself deserves, is far from many peoples’ experience. Hatred and vilification based upon gender, race, religion, sexuality, ability and other factors is rife across the globe and despite concerted efforts to address the problem, there are many who strive to perpetuate such inequalities with an unremitting diet of hatred. It is easy to feel overwhelmed in the face of such malevolent intransigence. And yet Mars in Aquarius acts as a way-shower, banging on the door of the Aquarian Age, demanding it be opened forthwith! What we may not realise is that we are the other side of the door already and can draw back the imposing bolts anytime, throwing it open to let the sunlight in. The new age is born through us, we do not enter it. We must not only be the change we want to see in the world, but also see the change we want to happen. Celebrate every effort made to address inequality, every person who strives to create a more peaceful, accepting and compassionate world. Look with equal attention upon those who act for the good of the whole as we do upon those who attract our attention for less edifying reasons. It’s important to look life in the face and see what’s going on, but it’s equally important to perceive its many faces and acknowledge its paradoxically intricate threads.

Mars in Aquarius, working together with Uranus and Eris, reminds us that the greatest battle is often with the self as much as with any external force. If we find ourselves overwhelmed by the changes life demands they fortify us in the coming weeks, strengthening our resolve and standing alongside us as we break through our own obstacles. If we have trouble speaking our truth and standing up for what we know to be right, they remind us that the life of a spiritual rebel is a tough one with many challenges along the way. The rewards, however, are beyond compare when we can stand in our own truth and speak it no matter what others may say. For many this is an impossibility in a world where the consequences of authenticity are akin to death. But if that’s not us, we carry a responsibility to speak out for those who cannot. To contribute the energy of honest expression to the melting-pot of the collective soup from which we all feed.

As Mars shifts now it reminds us that knowing how our mind works, taking charge of ourselves and acting upon razor-sharp integrity is fundamental to progressing from here. Without it we simply do the same thing over and over, getting the same old results and wondering why nothing ever changes. Mars in Aquarius tells us everything changes if we let it and it’s time for us to do the same.

Cosmic Weather Horoscope

(Fri 11th – Mon 14th November)

Jane Lyle

Friday 11th November – Monday 14th November:

Big Lunar Alert!

We’re now feeling (and seeing) the forthcoming effects of the full supermoon in Taurus, which  illuminates our night skies on Monday, 14th November. Take it easy, and remember that dramatic emotions are on the rise at such times as situations reach a full Moon peak.

It’s probably not the best moment to make a serious decision, better to wait and see how you feel once the lunar tides have receded. This full Moon may highlight unsettling feelings about money, land and security.

Wild weather, and extra-high tides accompany supermoons, along with a vivid array of heightened human emotions. There’s some evidence that earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur more frequently in the period around a supermoon too – several days beforehand, and a few days after the actual date are the ones to watch. It activates numerous national horoscopes, including several for the UK.

Today’s Horoscopes for Thursday, November 10th

by Rick Levine



General Horoscope

We’re submerged in a fertile swamp of feelings where imagination conjures up the future. Several planets are swimming through emotional Water signs, connecting present experiences with subjective memories of the past. We run into trouble when the compassionate Pisces Moon squares Venus, prior to jumping into spontaneous Aries at 8:44 pm EST. Nevertheless, creative thinking leads to breakthroughs while spontaneous Uranus shocks cerebral Mercury.

Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19

You might not be happy about the intensity of your current feelings today, yet embracing them can bring you face to face with an important truth. It’s often easier for you action-oriented Rams to be in motion rather than sitting still with your emotions. Instead of distracting yourself with busy work, focus your attention inward, follow the spiral of your thoughts and see where it leads. Sometimes, we don’t learn by doing; we learn by reflecting on what we’ve done.

Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20

Someone you know may have an ax to grind today and you could be swept up in a melodrama that isn’t even yours. For example, a business associate who shares a grievance with you might expect your support when negotiating with other people. Although this request puts you in an awkward position, there is no easy way to avoid it now. Thankfully, your even-tempered presence is a positive influence on all involved. Be the rock in the midst of the storm.

Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20

Navigating your way through an uncertain political climate at work is easier if you rely on intuition today rather than logic. However, your feelings may continue to develop and change throughout the day. Although you normally like to have an abundance of information at your disposal before making a decision, the data doesn’t tell the whole story now. Nietzsche wrote, “There are no facts, only interpretation.”

Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22

You have something important to get off your chest today, and you won’t let an uncomfortable situation prevent you from speaking your truth. Although it’s wise to consider the consequences before you say anything, it’s just as important to be detached from the outcome. Although you may be cool, calm and collected when delivering your message, it’s likely more radical than anyone might expect. Don’t ramble on about nothing; step back and give others space to react. Your words are a powerful catalyst and can change the course of events.

More for Cancer:

Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22

You are unusually sensitive today and may need to retreat from social activities to protect your heart. Normally you roaring Lions project more energy than you receive, but your compassion is so compelling now that it’s difficult to maintain healthy boundaries as you pick up signals from others. It might even be impossible to tell if a feeling is yours or if it’s coming from someone else. Nevertheless, it’s not wise to dwell on your current confusion. Alan Watts wrote, “Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.”

Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22

You don’t have the whole picture and, thankfully, you’re acutely aware that there is more going on than meets the eye. People are hard to read because it seems like they’re saying one thing while actually feeling something else. Instead of struggling to rectify the apparent inconsistency, just accept the ambiguity for now. What you’re missing today will likely become apparent tomorrow.

Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22

You are so certain about your own beliefs today that you can be an anchor for someone else. There is little doubt in your mind that you’re able to see through other people’s games; their clever stories and distracting shenanigans won’t likely throw you off course. Nevertheless, it’s still tricky to put your perceptions into words because the more you say now, the more confused everyone becomes. An Apache proverb advises, “It is better to have less thunder in the mouth and more lightning in the hand.”

Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21

Although you know exactly what you need to do today, it’s not clear how best to initiate action. You can explain your ingenious ideas to your coworkers and they will likely encourage you to follow your dreams. But your comrades are of little help now when it comes to converting your thoughts into operation. Fortunately, your path will clear and your next step will be obvious tomorrow. In the meantime, put all the pieces of your plan in place in preparation for the launch of your big adventure.

Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21

Your internal process seems more important than external circumstances now, prompting you to slip in and out of daydreams instead of fully applying yourself at work. Although you can put on a good enough show that no one suspects anything is amiss, you could judge yourself rather harshly if you’re not living up to your own expectations. Nevertheless, you will have a greater impact than you realize today if you just continue to dance with one foot in each world.

Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19

Your long-term goals currently extend beyond your immediate career objectives. Although your individual success is usually a strong motivating factor, you are now more inclined to consider the needs of those around you. Fortunately, your altruism pays off because your personal satisfaction is tied to the fulfillment of those in your immediate environment. Dr. Mark Hyman writes, “The power of community to create health is far greater than any physician, clinic or hospital.”

Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18

You might begin your journey today with low visibility and without direction, as if you are lost in a storm cloud. Unfortunately, it’s frustrating when you’re unable to get your bearings or decide on a destination. However, the sky clears enough for you to see your way and set a path, even if it’s slow-going at first. Your physical energy is on the rise, adding to your momentum throughout the day. Take your time to plot your course; things that start fast end fast.

Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20

You are like a psychic sponge, soaking up the vibrations from those around you. While many people are sympathetic and understanding, you are empathetic and can feel what others are experiencing. Your antennae are so sensitive now that you pick up every little ripple of emotion in the atmosphere, challenging you to stay focused on what’s most important. Inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant says, “Trust yourself enough to know who you can trust.”

If You Were Born Today, November 10:

You are strong-minded and intelligent. You are actively creative and dynamic. Your quick wit is apparent from the get-go. Your intelligence doesn’t come from pure academics—you work from your gut instincts, which more often than not steer you on the right course. Your enthusiasm is strong, but you can also be quick to tire of one particular thing, place, or path. Although you are independent and rather willful, you won’t disregard others’ wisdom. Because you have many talents and interests, you can easily stray from your path. Your biggest challenge in life is to stay focused. Famous people born today: Richard Burton, Martin Luther, Mackenzie Phillips, Miranda Lambert, Roy Scheider.

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!

Pluto transits sextile your Sun this year – an empowering transit. What used to satisfy you may not continue to do so, particularly if your goals have been superficial or a poor reflection of your inner desires. You are no longer willing to make compromises in the critical areas of your life, particularly with regards to career and your life path. You are more determined this year, and it’s an excellent time for getting rid of bad habits. This is a year in which to get your life back on track, as you have the willpower to do so. Others are bound to recognize your leadership skills and talents, or, at the very least, your potential. You want your life path and your objectives to reflect what you’re really about. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus help you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being fruitful and long-lasting.

This is a good period for teaming up with someone to generate ideas or solve problems or simply to listen to and be heard. Mental rapport is in focus. Feelings might develop for someone due to what is said or a mental connection made. You may get a whole lot done partnering up with someone this year. There can be mutual benefits to keeping active and busy with a partner or close friend.

You are more inclined to put your ideas into action than usual. You can be particularly prolific in your studies or writing. There can be frequent trips, errands, and debates.

This year is a period of constructive accomplishment. You are practical and realistic, and your judgment is especially sound. You also derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. It would behoove you to identify and focus on finding pleasure in the simple things that make you happy.

This is a strong period for opening up communications with others, as you are more sensitive than usual and more willing to listen. Getting your point across is easier, as it’s not only about what specific words you choose to communicate, you intuitively express the meaning and intention behind the words. You can effectively use words to soothe, heal, and teach this year. People enjoy your observations and input. You are also quite open to new ways of looking at problems. Thus it’s considerably easier to find solutions.

In the year ahead, you are opening your mind to new pleasures, experiences, and ways of relating to others. You are earning more respect and attracting more interest this year. The year ahead is excellent for writing, speaking, creating, and research. It’s also powerful for discovering your calling or a renewed sense of purpose and meaning. Cooperation brings rewards, but you’re able to do your own thing without too much interference.

2016 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.

2017 will be 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 deal with 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 generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday

 

General Horoscope

We can’t see reality as it is now; instead, we hold a magnifying lens up to the world, making everything appear bigger. Logic is not to be trusted as rational Mercury misaligns with joyful Jupiter. Nevertheless, the future looks brighter, especially as the enterprising Aries Moon opposes Jupiter. Meanwhile, a magical Sun-Mars quintile touches our souls and inspires our hearts. Fortunately, we possess sufficient energy to finish what we start.

Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19

Adrenaline surges throughout your body today as you receive an extra boost of vitality. The Moon’s presence in your sign encourages you to take a risk in a relationship by sharing your feelings, even if you’re unsure where the conversation will lead. Divergent goals may produce heated conversation but the situation can resolve itself quickly when the Sun forms a creative connection with result-oriented Mars. Transforming the anger into constructive action smooths out the rough edges.

Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20

It’s tempting to push your point home today, but your persistence can turn an interaction personal, which is something you don’t necessarily want to do. Your audience won’t be bullied into making a decision; back off once you make your case and allow time for your message to sink in. Resistance will fade quickly if you stay cool. Your boss, partner or potential investor will come around as long as he or she doesn’t feel pressured by you. Silence speaks when words can’t.

  1. Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20

    Unfiltered honesty can get you into hot water today. To speak the truth is almost always a good idea, but tempering it with diplomacy means the difference between provoking a laugh and starting a fight. You might try to light a fire under a sluggish friend or you could attempt to get a rise out of your partner just for the fun of it. Tread cautiously now; you may be ready to jump but it’s hard to tell where you will land.

Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22

Although communication problems may create numerous headaches today, you are blessed with the tools to handle any misunderstandings that arise. Whether you are gathering with friends or spending the day at home, rest assured that most situations will unfold according to your plan — even if you must step in and nudge things along. Go ahead and dream the impossible dream, but keep in mind that magic doesn’t happen without plenty of hard work.

Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22

You might be feeling so good-natured and effervescent today that a quiet evening at home is too laid-back for your liking. An exciting connection between the sparkling Sun and ardent Mars reintroduces you to your inner child. Invite a few buddies over for a last-minute party or go out dancing on the town; whatever stirs the pulse of the crowd will surely make your heart beat faster, too. Your bubbly personality and warm generosity leave a lovely lasting impression.

Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22

You have a lot of new facts at your disposal today, but your current tendency is to fall back on old familiar patterns. You could even start an argument just to prove that you’re right, but it’s healthier to simply acknowledge there are multiple points of view and move on. Too many commitments can get you into trouble if circumstances beyond your control delay your progress. Charles Darwin wrote, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”

Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22

You may wonder if your ideas are worthy of pursuit today as your brain buzzes with innovation and inspiration. However, someone could act as a catalyst to accelerate the pace of change, bringing both excitement and instability into your life. Thankfully, you are fully motivated with more-than-enough energy to rise to the occasion when the radiant Sun shines on macho Mars. Norman Vincent Peale wrote, “Shoot for the Moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”

Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21

Impatient thinking combines with sloppy logic today, adding extra tension to complex interpersonal relationship dynamics. Before a passionate discussion turns into an outright battle, make sure that everyone is talking about the same issue. Although the cosmos gives you plenty of juice to defend your point of view, there’s no sense in wasting it now by going around in circles with someone. Desmond Tutu instructs, “Don’t raise your voice. Improve your argument.”

M

Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21

You may struggle to assimilate new information and integrate it into a single picture today. You’re so eager to show off what you know that you could make outrageous statements now, which can’t be verified when push comes to shove. Balancing your high hopes with the basic facts can be tricky if you say more than you should. Overstating your position leaves you out on a limb; making your case in a low-key manner earns you the trust and respect you seek.

Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19

It feels as if you’ve been playing the waiting game for a long time and now you’re finally ready to make your move. Unfortunately, your judgment isn’t very clear while Mercury forms an anxious aspect with inflationary Jupiter in your 10th House of Authority. However, you’re advised by your friends to throw your usual caution to the wind. Allow yourself the luxury of unrestrained optimism since you possess the strength to go after what you want, and the innate common sense to know when to quit.

Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18

Your nerves are on edge today as you’re pulled back and forth between high anxiety and low stress. An uncomfortable Mercury-Jupiter connection clouds your thinking and tempts you to exaggerate the facts, especially if you’re trying to sound practical. But a responsible Moon-Saturn trine enables you to apply your skills steadily while building a strong foundation. Thankfully, your persistent efforts will be rewarded, irritations will fade and your clever ability to influence others with the truth will return.

Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20

You are susceptible to emotional hyperbole, unrealistic promises or information overload today. Messenger Mercury’s stressful alignment with gregarious Jupiter can make you very chatty or possibly even indiscreet. Be careful talking about friends or colleagues, since even an innocent remark may be perceived as gossip. Nevertheless, your enthusiasm bubbles over, empowering you to be a strong motivator and an effective champion for your ideas. Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate.
