April 27

REVEAL TOO MUCH
Someone might ascertain the secret you are carrying simply by the way you behave. It will be up to you to decide whether to confess or to hold on. Is it worth keeping secret?

The Sun

__________________________________________

April 27

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Sun is an invitation to a supportive relationship in which you can be yourself around your significant other. You feel relaxed and loved, with a sense of peace of heart. You’ve struck gold and entered into a new realm. Keep looking if this is not how you feel because it is how things should be. You can’t expect improvement in a long-term union if you do not take effective steps to create it.

The Judgment card represents a sexual awakening, and now that you aren’t afraid to move in a new direction, a whole new world awaits you. What sex positions do you want to try, and which fantasies have you been dying to act out? Being honest with yourself and potential partner(s) about the details of what you desire will help you get what you want faster, and the end result will be much more satisfying. And above all, enjoy your sexual liberation!

Daily Earth Sky News for April 13:  Do we all see the same moon phase?

 

From the Southern Hemisphere, meanwhile, a waxing moon (from new moon to full moon) increases its phase from left to right. Why so different? Think of the moon’s path across your sky. Just picture yourself standing there, looking at it. From the Northern Hemisphere, we look generally southward to see the moon (or sun) crossing our sky. From the Southern Hemisphere, people look generally northward to see the moon (or sun) crossing the sky. Can you see why that shift in your orientation on the globe would cause you to see the moon differently?

But there are other differences. Look back at Bridget Borchert’s image at the top of this post. No matter where you are on Earth, the moon itself shifts its orientation with respect to your horizon as it moves across your sky. I hope the photo at top – showing the moon’s changing face throughout a single evening – is self-explanatory. If you do have questions, though, please ask them in the comments below, and I’ll try to answer, if I can.

Just remember, your time zone also makes a small difference in how you view the moon’s phase. That’s because – as Earth turns under the sky, and the moon rises for successive time zones – the moon is continually waxing or waning.

A final thought. What we on Earth call moon phases are really about sunrise and sunset on the moon. Astronomers call the line between light and dark on the moon the terminator line. That’s the line of sunrise or sunset on the moon, and it shifts, just as the line of sunrise and sunset on Earth is constantly shifting. Earth spins relatively, once every 24 hours. The moon spins on its axis only once each earthly month, and its line of sunrise/set moves slowly. It’s wonderful fun to beg or borrow a telescope for a night when the moon is up … and watch for yourself over several hours as the shadows slowly shift on the moon, as the lunar sunrise or sunset slowly creeps across the moon’s face. A great way to clear the mind!

Bottom line: The whole Earth sees the same moon phase on the same day, but the Northern and Southern Hemispheres see the moon oriented differently with respect to the horizon. The moon itself shifts its orientation with respect to your horizon as it moves across your sky. Finally, your time zone makes a small difference in how you view the moon’s phase.

Tarot Card of the Day

King of Swords


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Traditionally, representing the energy of a King, this masculine energy form is The Adjudicator, the wise judge or mediator. He helps parties in conflict discover common ground and build upon it, and guides societies to see their greater good. His archetype is Solomon, ancient lawgiver and philosopher of the Old Testament. Sometimes appearing cool and detached, he can be misunderstood as not caring.

But emotional displays are just not his medium, nor is he moved by appeals to sympathy or pity. With the philosophical overview that comes from long experience, he listens deeply, watches closely and speaks last. In the end, his even-handedness and objectivity earn him the respect he receives from his community, and those who cannot work out their problems come to him voluntarily for advice.

Occasionally this man is subtly detailed to imply that he is a woman in male armor. If you notice this theme in your deck, it is a reference to Joan of Arc, the Maid of Orleans, archetype of a devout and inspired woman warrior, who was mystically led to abandon her social role to defend what she saw as the greater good. Although she was martyred young, her model crystallizes the message that sometimes the good of the whole is more important than the good of the individual, and in that case, even if you lose, you win just for being there.

Today, the truth is told and clears up a situation that has hung on and on. Take direct action now to clear up something that should have been handled long ago.

Your Earth Sky News for April 25 – A word about the moon’s distance tonight

ou know the moon changes its distance from Earth continually. It must, since the orbit of the moon is not a perfect circle; instead, it’s an ellipse, like a circle someone sat down on. The moon was last at perigee – its closest point to Earth for this month – on April 20. So on the date of the article you’re reading now – April 25, 2018 – and into early May, the moon’s distance from Earth is steadily increasing. It’ll continue increasing until our companion world reaches apogee – its farthest point for the month – on May 6.

Moon’s distance at April 20 perigee: 229,108 miles or 368,714 km

Moon’s distance at May 6 apogee: 251,318 miles or 404,457 km

Separation: 22,210 miles or 35,743 km

The moon will reach mean distance of 238,855 miles (384,400 km) on April 28, 2018.

Click here to find out the moon’s present distance.

Tonight’s moon is still in the constellation Leo the Lion, as shown on the chart below.

 In 2018, the largest separation between lunar perigee and apogee happened in January.

January 1 closest perigee of 2018 = 221,559 miles or 356,565 km

January 15 farthest apogee of 2018 = 252,565 miles or 406,464 km

Separation: 31,006 miles or 49,899 km

Throughout the year, the separation between perigee and apogee varies from a maximum of about 31,00 miles (50,000 km) to a minimum of approximately 21,000 miles (34,000 km). The illustration below helps to explain why.

When the moon’s perigee-apogee line points toward the sun, as it does at A and C in the diagram, the moon’s orbit is maximally eccentric (oblong), which means a closer perigee distance yet a more distant apogee. Hence, the separation between perigee and apogee is especially profound. The perigee-apogee line points toward the sun in cycles of about 206 days (7 lunar months).

On the other hand, when the moon’s perigee-apogee line makes a right angle with the Earth-sun line, as at B in the diagram, the moon’s eccentricity is at a minimum (closest to circular). That gives us a farther perigee distance yet closer apogee distance, which means a minimal separation between perigee and apogee (B in diagram). The period of time from A to B (or B to C) in the diagram is about 103 days (3 1/2 lunar months).

his year’s 14 perigees and 13 apogees via John Walker’s Lunar Perigee and Apogee Calculator,

The moon’s orbit is closer to being a circle than the above diagram suggests, but the exaggeration helps to clarify. The moon is closest to Earth in its orbit at perigee and farthest away at apogee. Image via NASA.

This illustration is closer to the actual shape of the moon’s orbit around Earth. It’s not a perfect circle, but it is very nearly circular, as the above diagram shows. Diagram by Brian Koberlein.

Bottom line: The moon was closest to Earth April 20. It’ll be farthest from Earth May 6. The moon on April 25, 2018, is a little closer than its average distance from Earth.

The Witches Divination Journal for Friday, April 6th

Tarot Card of the Day

Three of Wands


This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.

A Three in this suit symbolizes an inner balance that allows you to feel more optimistic about new endeavors you are committed to, or want to commit to. In the illustrated Tarots, the human character is standing on his balcony, watching ships leave the harbor, loaded with his goods for far-off ports, dreaming of the fortune he will reap if all goes well. Summon the optimism within you.

This energy must be patient and trusting, because he or she will have to wait some time to find out how the ships have fared. Meanwhile, a lot of resources are tied up until they return with the bounty. Only those truly confident in their ideas and abilities would undertake such a risk. This card represents the energy a person needs to take on great adventures and accomplish noble (and remunerative) deeds.

A detail that sometimes appears in the more esoteric Tarots is a winged wand with two snakes twining around it, called the Caduceus, which is Mercury’s wand. This is an ancient symbol of the healer or shaman, one who can travel between the worlds to rescue souls from death or possession. Perhaps the feeling of empowerment this card represents points to the internal mechanisms of self-healing. Perhaps it refers to the courage it takes to be an entrepreneur or an inventor, which is in itself a magical process — bringing not only opportunity for success, but also an awakening to higher potentials.
