September 27th Astronomy Picture of the Day

Unwrapped: Five Decade Old Lunar Selfie

Image Credit: NASAApollo 11Neil Armstrong; Processing: Michael Ranger

Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.

Explanation: 

Here is one of the most famous pictures from the Moon — but digitally reversed. Apollo 11 landed on the moon in 1969 and soon thereafter many pictures were taken, including an iconic picture of Buzz Aldrin taken by Neil Armstrong. The original image captured not only the magnificent desolation of an unfamiliar world, but Armstrong himself reflected in Aldrin’s curved visor. Enter modern digital technology. In the featured image, the spherical distortion from Aldrin’s helmet has been reversed. The result is the famous picture — but now featuring Armstrong himself from Aldrin’s perspective. Even so, since Armstrong took the picture, the image is effectively a five-decade old lunar selfie. The original visor reflection is shown on the left, while Earth hangs in the lunar sky on the upper right. A foil-wrapped leg of the Eagle lander is prominently visible. Preparations to return humans to the Moon in the next few years include the Artemis program, an international collaboration led by NASA.

Date: September 20  – 23

Other Names: Spring Equinox, Lady Day, Alban Eiler (Druidic)

Pronunciations: uh-star-uh, oh-star-uh

As Spring reaches its midpoint, night and day stand in perfect balance, with light on the increase. The young Sun God now celebrates a hierogamy (sacred marriage) with the young Maiden Goddess, who conceives. In nine months, she will again become the Great Mother. It is a time of great fertility, new growth, and newborn animals.

The next full moon (a time of increased births) is called the Ostara and is sacred to Eostre the Saxon Lunar Goddess of fertility (from whence we get the word estrogen, whose two symbols were the egg and the rabbit.

The Christian religion adopted these emblems for Easter which is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. The theme of the conception of the Goddess was adapted as the Feast of the Annunciation, occurring on the alternative fixed calendar date of March 25 Old Lady Day, the earlier date of the equinox. Lady Day may also refer to other goddesses (such as Venus and Aphrodite), many of whom have festivals celebrated at this time.

Herbs: Daffodil, Jonquils, Woodruff, Violet, Gorse, Olive, Peony, Iris, Narcissus and all spring flowers

Traditional Foods: Leafy green vegetables, Dairy foods, Nuts such as Pumpkin, Sunflower and Pine. Flower Dishes and Sprouts

Ancient Celebrations for Today – OSTARA

For more about Ostara and the Wheel of The Year

Ostara marks the Spring Equinox, which happens between March 19 -23. Ostara is a pagan celebration of the German goddess Eostre and the origins of the Christian celebration of Easter. As the beginning of spring Ostara is a good time to literally and figuratively plant seeds for the future.

In modern day living Ostara is also good time to start taking action on the ideas and goals you started thinking about around Yule and Imbolc. What you plant during Ostara will be ready to be harvested during the coming summer months and the sabbats of Beltane, Litha and Lughnasadh.

Ostara is also a good time to freshen up your home and life. Take time to do some spring cleaning. Cleaning isn’t just limited to your home. Take some time to declutter and clean up areas where you spend a lot of time, like your car, your computer (delete those old emails!) or your work office.

Symbols Of Ostara

Colors:  Green, pink, blue

Foods:  Eggs, honey, sprouted greens, baked goods, asparagus

Stones:  Aquamarine, amethyst, rose quartz

Symbols:  Rabbits, eggs, spring flowers , lambs, clover, baskets

Flowers & Plants: clover, daffodils, crocus, tulips

Deities:   Isis, Estotre, Adonis

Ancient Celebrations for Today – MABON

For more about Mabon and the Wheel of The Year

Known as the pagan Thanksgiving, Mabon marks the Autumn Equinox, when day and night are equal, making it a time of balance, equality and harmony.  In ancient times Mabon was a celebration of the second harvest (Lughnasadh was the first) when farmers gathered hearty foods like gourds, pumpkins, grapes and apples.

Modern Mabon celebrations are a time to give thanks for the abundance of Mother Earth – both literally and spiritually.  It’s also a good time to reflect on the Wheel of the Year, recognizing your successes and letting go of the things that did not serve you during the past twelve months.

History Of Mabon

Modern Pagans began celebrating Mabon as the last of the eight Sabbats in the 1970s, but its roots as a harvest festival go back to ancient times.

Named after the ancient Welsh hero named Mabon ap Modron, which means Son of Mother, Mabon is the second of three harvest festivals that take place in the Wheel of the Year (Lughnasadh is the first and Samhain is the third).  Similar to Apollo, the figure of Mabon was depicted as a handsome youth with a lyre. As a baby Mabon was said to have been held hostage as a baby in the underworld, similar to the story of Persephone and Demeter.

Indeed, the Greek goddess Demeter is much more closely associated with the Autumn harvest, as…

Seven Of Pentacles

LShe stood in a luxuriant grass garden, where she dedicated it to special care. She is the forest guardian, a part of this place, the Garden of Eden that she created herself. The peach trees finally bear fruit, a source of magical energy proliferating all over the world. Peaches are a fruit of summer and of long relaxing days. Their nectar is as sweet as honey. The specific sweetness that comes from their fruit flowed evenly from the tongue into the throat, evoking memories of hot summer days.

Should I pick them or not?” She was confused, the patterned ripples stirred on her body. Placing her hands on sweet fruits, she was ready to pick them at any time. They shrugged vaguely as if she was holding the heart of the tree, weakly trembling along the branches of the tree. Are the peaches still juicy and sweet like honey, once picked from the branches? Or would they become as faint, exhausted as the mediocre fruits in her basket?

Chên / Thunder

Thunder echoes upon Thunder, commanding reverence for its father Heaven:
In awe of Heaven’s majestic power, the Superior Person looks within and sets his life in order.
Thunder mingles with startled screams of terror for a hundred miles around.
As the people nervously laugh at their own fright, the devout presents the sacrificial chalice with nary a drop of wine spilt.
Deliverance

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

A thunderbolt of Cosmic judgement crashes to earth.
For the common person, it’s just a momentary fright soon forgotten, its warning unfathomed and unheeded.
But to one who understands its significance, this thunder is a signal to awaken.
Centering the Self, seeking balance, the enlightened person will respect and align himself with this Higher Power, while his fellows remain subject to the whims of every passing storm.

Tarot Cards Vs. Playing Cards

1. Fortune Telling Tools of Tarot cards and Playing cards

Playing cards use the deck of 52 cards. Although it is known as the Western deck of cards, and currently there is no document proving the origin of this deck, it is assumed that card playing began in China at an early date before they eventually arrived in the West. Later on, Western fortune-telling became one of the Eastern divination categories, considered superstitious.
Tarot reading uses the deck of 78 cards. Tarot cards are from Europe, originally used for entertainment. Then, the occult associations in England and France have discovered the symbols on the card and used it for the interpretation of fate and prophecy. In the West, Tarot reading is very popular, professional and recognized.

The Lovers – A Major Arcana

Work: “Twins” – The Lovers is associated with Gemini in astrology. You may be feeling “confused” with a business relationship or a project at work. Everything seems to be decided quickly. You can analyze all the available information before making the best decision. Maybe, at first, you will find that something wrong going to happen but everything will be fine. But you should also be careful and do not let personal emotions interfere with decisions at work.

Sentiments: In a Tarot spread, number 6 often symbolizes deep love. If the Lovers appears, maybe true love will come in the future. It could be a new relationship or an event that creates a strong connection. You will be very happy. Everyone can see the aura of happiness that radiates from you. Even if this relationship just begins, the two of you can think about meeting each other’s family and getting married.

Finance: A romantic love story can make you lose control in terms of finances. Do not spend too much on luxury gifts. Money never guarantees a lasting relationship.

Healthy: This card signals that you are too confident about the energy source inside your body to ignore health problems. Do not overwork. In addition, your health may be is at risk of instability by an emotional disorder. Let’s keep everything in balance.

Druid Ogham

Saille

Sensitivity, receptivity, intuition, fluidity, flexibility

Tree: Willow (Salix spp.)

Letter: S

Intuition, fluidity, psychic phenomena, sensitivity, good timing. Heightened perception. Saille indicates the ability to let go of fixed ideas in favor of moving with what is appropriate for a particular phase of life. Being sensitive or empathic is a skill that is hard to balance, but it also gives you uncanny talents when it comes to choosing the right thing at the right time or place. It is necessary for great artists and musicians to be empaths, because it is their access to the unconscious that enables them to put the right color in the right place on a painting or hit the right note at the right time on their instrument. Drawing Saille means that a force within you is flowing in harmony with the unseen powers. Whether you are riding (figurative) white water rapids or growing in a peaceful garden, you are flexible and resilient to life’s curves and eddies. You bend like a willow, making the best decisions possible considering the circumstances of the phase you have entered. Understanding has become stored knowledge and within it a deep well of wisdom upon which to draw.

When you encounter Saille,…

Six

This is the peace lover. The number six is a loving, stable, and harmonious vibration. Ruled by Venus.

Keywords: compassionate, stable, family-loving, trustworthy, domesticated. If expressed negatively, superficial, jealous, possessive, unwilling to change.

As lovers: Number Sixes have a deep dislike of discord and will generally work hard at keeping the peace. They are very attached to their homes and their families. At their best, they are devoted and stable partners who do whatever they can to maintain balance and harmony. At their worst, they take their peace-loving natures too far, and become lethargic, diplomatic to the point of superficiality, and jealous.

About I Ching (Yi Jing)

The

I Ching or “Yi Jing”

, is one of the oldest known documents in the world.
This “Classic of Change” can be traced as far back as 3000 years in written form, and the Chinese claim that it was passed down as oral tradition for two thousand years before that.

Its longevity isn’t the only wonder the I Ching holds claim to.
It also possesses the uncanny ability to actually communicate with anyone who chooses to use it.
This is no fortune-telling gimmick — in fact, the I Ching often frustrates attempts to divine the future from its pages.
This oracle is solely concerned with the present — YOUR present.

It takes you past the tunnel vision and gives you a 360 degree view of your situation.
It goes beyond the realm of your five senses and picks up the subliminal signals that sailed right past your conscious awareness to become filed away in your subconscious.
When you are obsessed with a desire, intent on an outcome, the I Ching gently nudges you and says, “Yes, but have you considered this …?”

This classic’s ability to accurately gauge a situation probably seemed like a gift from the gods to the sages who discovered it — and in a sense, it is.
But modern science is progressively removing the layers of superstition from its legend and replacing it with new understanding that is no less magical.
Like all oracles of the ancient world, the I Ching’s message …

One Way of Reading Druid Ogham

About

What is Ogham?

Ogham is a divination system like Tarot cards or runes that is also a system of writing used by the ancient Celts known as Druids.  Ogham letters (also called Fews) are made up of simple lines that can be inscribed on any convenient surface.  They are read from the bottom up.

Each Ogham letter stands for a type of tree, and the characteristics of that tree (prickly like holly, flexible like willow) grant the Ogham its insights into human nature. Just as each Tarot card should be studied for its individual meaning and its relationship to other cards, Ogham were meant to be studied one by one. This website is the product of my own discursive meditations with Ogham.

Individual Ogham letters are often engraved on sticks or printed on cards in order to use them for divination. To read Ogham as one would read Tarot cards or runes, any number of spreads can be utilized from asking a simple yes or no question where you pull a single Ogham stick/card to complex interpretations of a dozen Oghams thrown on a table or on the ground reveal the future depending on the angles at which they fall. I personally prefer a simple three Ogham reading. I do it every day sometime in the morning. In my mind, I ask the Ogham: “What do I need to know in order to make the best out of today?” and then reach my hand into the box where I keep my Ogham tiles. Then I pick three of them and lay them side by side as shown:

Four Of Wands

The Four of Wands card describe a couple dancing under a wreath hanging among four sticks. This wreath is similar to the kind that used in traditional Jewish ceremonies and therefore, it represents the time spent completing work and the satisfaction with achieving a goal. Surrounding them is a group of people, and behind them is a large castle which is also decorated with flowers. It seems to be a celebration, an opportunity to return home or a celebration from within the castle.

Driud Ogham

To read this of the article on Phagos from the Driud Ogham

Phagos

Teaching, education, mastery, virtuosity, legacy

Tree: Beech (Fagus spp.)

Letter: Ph or F

Phagos is a reminder of the mental discipline it takes in the process of acquiring knowledge. When you get to the point of knowing a subject so well, you can teach it effortlessly, then you have mastered the subject on the mental plane, which reverberates through the other planes. Saturated knowledge is knowing a thing inside and out. Those who believe in reincarnation believe this is the kind of knowledge that does not go away when you shed one mortal body for the next one: for instance, a skilled midwife will stand a good chance of coming back as a competent ob/gyn who stumbles upon their talent in a seemingly random way. Or a lute player may be reborn and pick up the guitar at age twelve and learn it faster than any other kid in their class because of knowledge picked up in past lifetimes.

Numerology

From Lasagna.com

Six

If your life path number is 6, you are someone who thinks, speaks and acts from the heart. You are sincere, loving, warm and affectionate. It would serve you to find a job where you can bring and apply these wonderful qualities, such as a kindergarten teacher, pediatrician, social worker, or a therapist. You are made for long-term relationships and family life. Shallow pursuits and one-night stands aren’t your thing. When you touch someone, it’s real. But because you are too focused on the relational aspects of your life, you may end up bringing those people who don’t care as much as you do, into your life. If the digits of a date add up to number 6, it’s a wonderful time to create love! Work on a universal theme, help poor communities in distant places or the homeless on your block. It’s the best time to be there for other people.

ANGEL NUMBERS

(I will start including an Angel number in the Daily Divination Journal. It is for general knowledge only as your Angel number may be different than the one I post.)

Do you see repeating number sequences several times during the day? They are angel numbers and you can see them everywhere. 1:31 on your watch, 131$ payment for shopping, duration of your phone call, licence plate on the car and so on.

Possibilities to see angel numbers in your life are endless. If you keep your eyes open, you will notice them. They repeat daily, sometimes you can see the same number even for weeks! It can mean a lot and you can use these messages for your advantage. On this page you will find true meaning to each one of them.

These messages are from your guardian angel or Higher Powers standing by your side to guide you through specific phase of life. These powers from above can change very often or you can have the same one your entire life. It depends on your thoughts, desires and wishes. Higher Powers tend to have specific sphere of activity. You like sports and you devote all of your daily time to it? Sport related powers will find you and help you archieve your goals. More skilfull and powerfull you become, the closer relation between you and them. Workers will attract other powers and scientists completely different ones. Later in your life, if you decide to focus all of your time and energy to love instead. Sport, work or science specialists will go help elsewhere and you will attract Higher Powers of love instead. It’s that simple.
