Moon Phase calendar for the current month of August 2021

 

This calendar shows the Moon Phase for every day in the current month of August 2021. The first day starts with a Waning Crescent phase that is 36.6% illuminated. Explore this August Moon Phase Calendar by clicking on each day to see detailed information on that days phase. Also see more information about the Full Moon and New Moon in August 2021 including local viewing times.

UNDERSTANDING MOON PHASES

Let’s start with some interesting facts. It takes the Moon 29.53 days to orbit completely around the Earth in a full lunar cycle. During this time, the Moon will go through each phase. Since the Moon’s orbital journey takes a little less than a full month, when you click on future dates you’ll notice that–depending on the exact number of days in that month–the Full Moon occurs a day or two earlier each month.

It’s the Moon’s journey as it orbits around Earth that creates the predictable dance between light and shadow. And while the changes may seem slow, on any given day the amount of Moon illuminated by the Sun can vary by as much as 10-percent. The illustration above shows the range of illumination for today – August 04, 2021. The illustration is set to your computer’s clock and therefore gives you an accurate reading for your own particular time zone.

The four main Moon phases in order are the New Moon, First Quarter Moon, Full Moon and Last Quarter Moon. These phases occur at very specific times and are measured by both the Moon’s luminosity and how far along the Moon is in its orbit around Earth.

The New Moon Phase occurs when the Moon is completely dark with zero-percent luminosity, while the Full Moon Phase is completely bright with 100-percent luminosity. The First and Last Quarter phases happen when the Moon is exactly half illuminated, with 50-percent luminosity. When people say “today is a Full Moon” it’s important to remember that doesn’t mean the Moon is full all day long, only that the Full Moon Phase occurs on this day. In reality, the exact moment of the Full Moon can be timed to the second. To learn more about the exact time of the Full Moon and the current Full Moon info, check out these Current Full Moon times.

The remaining four Moon phases occur at halfway points between the main phases. Unlike the main phases, these minor phases don’t happen at a specific time or luminosity, rather they describe the Moon’s phase for the entire time period between each main phase. These interim phases are Waxing Crescent Moon, Waxing Gibbous Moon, Waning Gibbous Moon and Waning Crescent Moon. The illustration below shows all eight main and minor Moon phases and where they occur in the lunar cycle.

MOON PHASES IN HISTORY

Imagine a Neanderthal peering out of his cave some dark summer night as the Full Moon rises above the horizon. Nothing on Earth was quite like this strange brilliant object arcing through the night sky. What did he think it was? It’s not hard to imagine how the Moon became the source of many religions, myths and legends throughout the ages.

The Greeks were among the first to take a scientific look at the Moon and her phases. Around 500 BC Greek philosopher and astronomer Pythagoras carefully observed the narrow boundary line—the terminator—between the dark and light hemispheres of the Moon. Based on how the terminator curved across the surface of the Moon, he correctly surmised the Moon must be a sphere.

moon giants

A few centuries later, around 350 BC, Aristotle took Pythagoras observations even further. By observing the shadow of the Earth across the face of the Moon during a lunar eclipse, Aristotle reckoned that the Earth was also a sphere. He reasoned, incorrectly however, that the Earth was fixed in space and that the Moon, Sun and Stars revolved around it. He also believed the Moon was a translucent sphere that traveled in a perfect orbit around Earth.

It wasn’t until the 16th century that our understanding of the Solar System evolved. In the early 1500s Astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus developed a model of the Solar System where Earth and the other planets orbited around the Sun, and the Moon orbited around Earth. One hundred years later Italian Astronomer Galileo used one of the first telescopes to observe the terminator and deduced from the uneven shadows of the Waning Crescent Phase that the Moon’s surface was pocked with craters and valleys and ridged with mountains.

These observations were revolutionary. Copernicus and Galileo upended the long-held Aristotelian view of the heavens as a place where Earth was the center of the Universe and the Moon was a smooth, polished orb. Telescopes and new minds helped scientist understand that the Earth and planets orbited around the Sun and the Moon was a battered and cratered satellite held in our own orbit.

Little Pagan Acorns – Website for Pagan Children

[Not just for Pagan children that are homeschooled but for any Pagan child)

WHY PAGAN?

The world of homeschooling is dominated by Christians, and the majority of online resources are Bible-based. For someone who is Pagan, it gets pretty frustrating to find great printables that aren’t filled with Bible scriptures or Christian phrasing. So I wanted to create a resource for all of us who are parents and/or homeschoolers who are following other spiritual paths.

My purpose is to create pages that can be mixed in with other resources to add some Pagan terminology, ideals and history so that people can teach their children something that is uniquely Pagan.

I also intend to have selections of nature-based and generically “spiritual” material that could be used by folks who aren’t really Pagan but want an option away from the Christian materials as well.

I know that the term “Pagan” covers a huge range of faiths and beliefs, and I hope that I can properly respect them all here. My own path is more Wiccan and you’ll tend to see more material along that slant (lots of altars, Sabbats and pentacles!). I’d welcome any comments or suggestions from other beliefs so that I can accurately cover them. I apologize in advance if I have included anything that is inaccurate about other religions. Feel free to let me know.

So, welcome to Little Pagan Acorns and I hope that there is something here to help with your Pagan homeschooling and parenting!

NASA Hubble Space Telescope snaps ‘squabbling galactic siblings’

The clashing trio earned a spot in the Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies.

The odd-looking object Arp 195 is actually three galaxies interacting.

ESA/Hubble & NASA, J. Dalcanton

Galaxies aren’t just static entities hanging out in space doing nothing. When they get close to each other, they can collide, push and pull at each other and even merge together. A newly released Hubble Space Telescope image shows what happens when three galaxies interact with each other and act like “squabbling galactic siblings.”

Hubble is a joint project of NASA and the European Space Agency. ESA said the image shows a “dramatic triplet of galaxies” engaged in a “three-way gravitational tug-of-war.” The system is known as Arp 195, getting its name from astronomer Halton Arp.

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM EDT today (12:30 PM to 2:30 PM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Gemini into Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a good day to wrap up old projects on your plate, especially about home or family. Get your facts. Get your ducks in a row. You know that you’re great at beginning things, but it takes some discipline to finish what you started.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Conversations with neighbours, siblings and relatives will be important today. You might discuss finances and possessions; or you might discuss something else that is pertinent. It’s a good day to finish up loose ends.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Wrap up details with your possessions, or money and earnings today because you’ll feel better if you did so. In the morning, you are empowered; and after the Moon Alert is over, your focus on money increases even more so. Ka-ching!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

After the Moon Alert today, the Moon will move into your sign, which will make you more emotional or excited about things. (This happens for 2 1/2 days every month.) However, you should know that this will also slightly increase your good luck. Bonus!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This morning is a social time with others – friends and groups. In fact, it’s an excellent time to wrap up any projects you have initiated with others. After the Moon Alert is over, make time to enjoy some privacy, or sneaking away to your secret cubbyhole.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This morning you are high viz., which means others will notice you more than usual. (You might be able to use this to your advantage – or not.) After the Moon Alert is over today, you will feel a strong desire to talk to a friend or mingle with a group.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

After the Moon Alert today, you will have a good chance to get the attention of bosses, parents or VIPs – if you want to do so. People notice you more than usual and they might be more inclined to listen to you, as well. Hey, you might have the winning hand.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

As this day wears on, your desire to do something different and explore new ideas and meet new people will grow stronger and stronger. Ideally, after the Moon Alert is over, you might travel somewhere or meet new and unusual people because you want a change!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This morning you might wrap up some important details when dealing with a partner or close friend because this is an excellent time to do this. After the Moon Alert today, you will be more interested in financial matters or something to do with shared property, taxes, debt and inheritances.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Before the Moon Alert occurs today, you will be productive and get a lot done. After the Moon Alert, be prepared to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Compromise and cooperation will be your best choices. (Some days, that’s how the cookie crumbles.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a playful, creative morning for you – no question. Write down your clever ideas because you might explore them later. However, after the Moon Alert is over, you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work. “I owe, I owe, off to work I go.”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Use this morning to finish family business or wrap up whatever is on your plate at home. You’ll make good headway. After the Moon Alert today, you want to play and socialize! Ideas? Surely, something comes to mind.

The hosts Rhett and Link do some strange things. But one thing they do sometimes is talk in a Japanese from of poetry known as Haiku. Which can be explained easily with this

A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.

An explanation of Haiku by Poets.org

As I read about Haiku I realized while it may take some getting use to writing nd reading it, it could be a different way to write a short, simple for something easy. For example (this is my first try in trying to do this so if it sounds strange it gives me room to improve and to find knowledge)

“I want Mother Earth,

To be clean and renewed So

 Tell me pick up trash.” 

Ok, I guess most people would not really a spell in the sense that we are use to writing them in. But to finish it I would write it on a small 1 inch by 3 inch piece of paper then the roughly burn the piece of paper. Once the ash is COMPLETELY COLD I would grinded it into a fine dust to mix into a small amount of lotion, about 1 tablespoon (if you lotion tends to go a long way when you use it regularly a just the amount you would use for this so you can rub in the lotion completely or than rub a tip of your index finger amount throughly into my crown chakra to remind me to pick up the trash and on my 3rd eye area so I would not over look the trash. Than rub the rest into my hands to remember to grab the trash. I would do this just before bedtime and let the lotion with the spell paper dust in it soak into my skin to set the spell. If you can wear a long weight pair of pure cotton gloves which will help the lotion moisture your hands more.

Here is my first attempt using a Japanese Haiku Poem to do a Spell. I will let you know how it goes.

I am really looking forward to reading your Haiku spell and how you are going to put it into action.

Today’s Tarot card reading comes from The Green Witch Tarot Deck and The Green Witch Tarot Companion by Ann Moura. With the art done by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard.

 

Today’s General Tarot Card

Knight of Chalices

This is a card of proposals and invitations, of socializing, networking, and making new contacts. There may be artistic or romantic proposal, or simply the enjoyment of good times, perhaps with an invitation received to attend a propitious occasion. The invitation may allow for social advancement or provide a desired opportunity to make necessary contacts for emotional fulfillment and satisfaction in life. If representatives of a person, this card is someone who has something beneficial to offer. One’s enthusiasm may prompt openings and opportunities, especially through casual mingling among people who prove helpful. Relaxation and good times are indicated, as well as holiday fun with others, and opportunities. Artistic expression is given direction and finesse. There is also a possible opportunism with this card: someone being capricious with one’s emotions, vacillating and leading one on. Flattery or deception could come into play. or a person could be misleading one either for his or her own gain or simply because of an inability to be emotionally consistent or make a sincere commitment. Other cards in the spread will clarify the intention.

Marigolds, flowers of well being, affection, and relationship, make a wreath. A stork, a symbol of beginnings, devotion, and opportunities, stand by the tree.

Meaning: Artistic direction, romantic or social proposal, invitation, fun, relaxation, opportunity, advancement, emotional sensitivity, developing style, love, breakthrough.

Prompt Words: Proposals, socializing

Today’s Love Tarot Card

Knight of Athames – Court Card

This is s card  of swift action, especially once one’s mind is made up. There is determination and an aggressive approach to getting something done, so the inherent warning is to look before leaping. Spur-of-the-moment enthusiasm and the excitement of embarking on a new objective  could result in a lack of preparation or making a premature commitment without a solid understanding of what is involved. There a an element of impulsiveness and a sense of self-assuredness that could board on recklessness in pursuit of adventure. However, this card indicates a smart, eager, and courageous person who is goal-focused and has the capacity to succeed with determination and incisiveness. Sudden changes are possible, as well as the skill to solve one’s own problems. Impatience and a quick temper may hinder cooperation from others; however, this card indicates someone who is competent and able to take charge for a successful conclusion.

Peppermint for action, challenges, and accomplishment, grows wild along the track. A badger, a symbol of assertiveness, determination, and action, watches from one side of the track.

Meaning: Swift action, aggressive energy, self-assured, sudden changes, boldness, courage, ability, skill, incisive career activity, bravery, heroic action, quick implementation of ideas.

Today’s Rune

From The Rune Site

ISA

Sound: “i”, “ee” as in “east”
Stands for: Ice
Color: Brown (Black)
Casting meaning: Like an icicle formed at the start of winter, with this rune we can only wait until the warmth of the sun allows us to be free from a constricting form. Isa represents a halt in activity until a change is made.

Today’s Witches’ Rune  

From The Summer Goddess Book of Shadows

WAVES

The Waves Rune stands for intuition and artistic imagination as well as cloudy perception. In this way, this run stands for self-sacrifice or self-sabotage.

When this rune turns up in a reading, it indicates that the answer is still not clear. Often, the matter of your concern will soon dissipate or phase out with no resolution or closure.

On the positive side, the Waves Rune represents a wellspring of creativity where you are nourished by the power of your own imagination.

Sometimes this rune means that the matter you have asked about depends upon your timing. So what you can imagine can become a reality, as long as you are willing to clarify and follow through.

Today’s Ogham Stave 

From Ogham Symbol Gallery

H is for Huath, or Uatha, and is symbolic of the Hawthorn tree. This prickly-thorned tree is associated with cleansing, protection and defense. Tie a thorn with a red ribbon and use it as a protective amulet in your home, or place a bundle of thorns under a baby’s crib to keep bad energy away. Because the Hawthorn typically blooms around Beltane, it is also strongly connected with fertility, masculine energy, and fire.

In folklore, the Hawthorn is associated with the land of the Fae. Thomas the Rhymer met the Faerie Queen under a Hawthorn tree and ended up in the Faerie realm for seven years. Despite its connection with female and goddess-centered pre-Christian belief, it’s considered unlucky to bring Hawthorn into your home. This may stem from the fact that some species of Hawthorn give off a particularly unpleasant –almost corpse-like–scent after they’ve been cut. No one wants their home to smell like death.

In Glastonbury, England, there’s a famous Hawthorn tree known as the Holy Thorn. The tree that stands there today is supposed to be a descendant of one that stood on Glastonbury Tor two thousand years ago, when Joseph of Arimathea brought the Grail to England from the Holy Land. When Joseph thrust his staff into the ground, it turned into a Hawthorn tree.

Birch Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: If you’re hoping to conceive a child, the appearance of Huath could be fortuitous. In addition to fertility, consider this a sign of protection, healthfulness and self-defense.

Magical Aspects: Understand that no matter how thorny a problem may be, you can use your spiritual strength to protect and guide you. You may also find that you can provide strength to those who depend on you.

Today’s Numerology Number

From NUMEROLOGY SINGLE DIGIT NUMBERS

The Numerology Meaning of the Number 3: THE CREATIVE CHILD

The Love Child of Zeus and Hera.

In the previous chapter (on the number 2), I described the unique union between the numbers 1 and 2 as that of the father and mother unit, while revealing the contradictory natures of their personalities. Now, we move on to what could be considered the result of their union: the number 3, an extraordinarily talented child.

The number 3 is like a gifted teenager who is still under the protection of its parents – a bit spoiled, clearly scattered, and perpetually in need of guidance. However, the 3 excels in the creative field.

An individual with 3s in key points of their numerology chart will have a passionate need to express feelings, ideas, and vision. Coupled with an extroverted personality, they are likely to seek a career in art, especially the verbal arts.

Another unique quality of the 3 is the tendency to be “lucky,” or rather, to be in the right place at the right time. This may be connected to their innate sense of rhythm – the 3 seems to be in tune with the cyclical nature of their surroundings.

Their social skills are also excellent.

Charm, wit and a sense of humor help a 3 along their path, and a compelling charisma make them particularly attractive.

Followers are willing to forgive less favorable traits exhibited by 3s, such as their lack of focus and direction, a tendency to procrastinate, an inability to finish projects, and an unwillingness to take responsibility.

There is also a superficial side to the 3 that can be harder to look past – a narcissistic streak, the need to be the center of attention. It’s easy for the optimistic 3 to enjoy day-to-day life as long as all is well, but when challenging issues arise, internal fortitude is often lacking.

Without little focus on deeper aspects, the 3 can succumb to difficulties unless friends and family provide support.

For the 3 to become a balanced, happy person they must learn discipline. Fortunate 3s who exhibit talent early in life (such as gifted dancers and music prodigies) are often placed in environments with just the sort of discipline a 3 needs to protect those talents.

Relationships can be a bit of a challenge for the 3, at least those requiring long-term commitment and loyalty. With plenty of acquaintances (probably more than is healthy), when true depth and intimacy enter the picture, the 3 may turn tail and run.

The 3 can have a jealous streak too, causing conflicts when those it has rejected move on in search of more meaningful bonds.

Jealousy stems from the 3 recognizing it has been skimming the surface of life since birth. As a result, they feel insecure, thinking others know things that have escaped them.

But, once a 3 finds the motivation to delve deeply into the realities of life (something that may only happen when confronted), its happy facade has the potential to be replaced by the serenity true wisdom brings. Such a “transformed” 3 is a thing to behold.

No one is represented by just one number but is a mixture of several if not all the numbers in their chart. Those who are blessed with a heavy dose of 3s in their numerology chart tend to have an easier time being happy, optimistic, and playful.

However, this kind of “joie de vivre” can leave those same people unprepared for the more demanding experiences that life inevitably brings.

While the western mindset focuses on happy moments as the ideal, unhappy experiences are often the ones that bring greater depth and quality to our life.

For the number 3, happiness might be easy to achieve, but is almost always a consequence of something materialistic or fleeting (a new car, a new relationship, a sunny day). A higher happiness, one that is not the consequence of a particular event but the result of a deep appreciation toward life itself, is worth a million times more.

The biggest challenge for the 3 is to recognize the real beauty of life is not found in possessions or frivolity, but in the deepest aspects of being human.

When the 3 defies the odds to achieve this state of being, the fact that it has had to travel far to reach such a height makes this number uniquely qualified to help others reach the same goal.

Today’s Animal Spirit Guide

OCTOPUS

“Practice shapeshifting by altering your physical appearance and mannerisms”

To become adept at shapeshifting, it’s necessary to remain flexible and resilient, and be willing to practice different identities by altering your way of dressing, your hairstyle, your demeanor, and your mannerisms. Particularly focus on your body language and voice qualities. Experiment by first making small changes in any of these aspects and watch what happens. You can also become skilled in modifying your aura (the energy field around you.) by intentionally contracting and expanding it. When you practice these things, sometimes even your friends won’t recognize you. You can even get so good at camouflage that you become invisible to others.

Everyone has numerous personas though which they operate, and you’re no different. It’s a matter of being conscious of those personas and modifying them through the art of shapeshifting. Just like actors do, study other people and notice their mannerisms, clothing styles, and how they walk and carry themselves.. Observe animals and their behaviors, and try to mimic them. Developing this ability can help you more readily adapt to the various situations you encounter, thus enabling you to deal with them more effectively. Let yourself be an actor in your everyday life, and have fun with it. Just remember who you are at the core.

SELF APR. 27, 2020 A Beginner’s Guide to Tarot Cards By the Cut

The  last few years have seen a resurging interest in all things witchy, tarot cards among them. For some, tarot is a handy party trick, a way to help a friend make connections they might have otherwise resisted. For others, the tarot is sacred, a powerful tool with which to direct one’s life.

Though tarot cards have taken on a mystical meaning in the cultural imagination, they were originally intended as more of a parlor game. The cards have been used since at least the mid-15th century; the earliest recorded decks originated in various parts of Italy. Not until the 18th century was the tarot used for the divinatory (or occult) purpose we know it best for today — Antoine Court and Jean-Baptiste Alliette are credited with popularizing tarot “readings” in Paris in the 1780s.

Between those who think it’s a joke and those who think tarot cards are actual magic lies a vast group who find them insightful and fun, if not necessarily supernatural. Whether it becomes a hobby or a full-time job, tarot reading (for oneself and for others) can be an illuminating way to pass the time.

August 1st Daily Correspondence Digest

Daily Horoscope

Sunday

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You might make a To Do list today because you feel you should get things done. You don’t want to be frivolous and waste time. Children might be an increased burden today. Likewise, romance might have challenges. You might even have to say goodbye to someone.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Conversations with parents and authority figures are serious today. These discussions might limit your movements or your ideas and suggestions. Naturally, this might be discouraging. Or you might be held back by some other reality that is confining?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You certainly have mental discipline today. Because you’re in a serious frame of mind, you will get a lot of mental work done. If working, you will be precise and careful. “Measure twice; cut once.” However, you might view lighthearted, playful activity as a waste of time.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you will take a serious look at your finances, and you might have some concerns. You might feel broke or that you don’t have enough money to do what you want to do. This is because Saturn is affecting your financial outlook. On the other hand, a little thrift is a good thing.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today Mercury in your sign opposes stern Saturn, which makes you feel set apart from others, a bit isolated. You might be concerned or even depressed about a relationship. Be aware that everything changes constantly. Friends become enemies and enemies become friends. Hang in there.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today your glass might feel half-empty, which is why you might have a pessimistic view of things. You might feel separated from someone or have to say goodbye to someone. On the upside, you have excellent concentration, which means any research you do will yield results.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

A conversation with someone older might create concerns. They might criticize you or make suggestions that will limit your scope or your future plans. Remember: Every day is different. Some days we feel we can climb K2, and other days it’s tough to get out of bed. This is temporary.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

A conversation with a parent, boss or a member of the police might be serious today. You might feel criticized. The best way to handle today’s influence is to get busy with some hard work because this will give you a feeling of positive reward. Roll up your sleeves!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Travel plans might disappoint today. Likewise, school plans might look impossible or difficult. The good news is that your mind is focused and determined today, which means you can study with purpose and achieve certain goals. Do not be discouraged. Attitude is everything.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Help from a third party or a partner or close friend regarding fundraising or financial matters might disappoint you today. People are tightfisted and not forthcoming with money and support. Nevertheless, you can earn their respect through study and hard work.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Relations with partners and close friends are difficult today. They might criticize you or tell you why you can’t do something. You might even have to say goodbye to someone today? However, this is a temporary dark cloud on your horizon. Keep the faith.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Work might seem to be onerous and difficult today, which makes you feel overwhelmed or discouraged. An authority figure might be demanding or critical. Bummer. Note: This is just for today. (It’s always darkest before it gets pitch black.)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress, talent agent, activist Scarlett Bruns (1988) shares your birthday today. People respect you. You are calm, focused, tough and determined – all qualities of a natural leader. You have a dry wit and expect others to be honest with you. Honesty is an important value for you. This year is a time of change for you. That change can manifest in a number of ways. Be open to meeting new friends and accepting new paths of both direction and growth.

Moon Goddess Current Phase

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. 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. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. 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 August 2021 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waning Crescent Phase

The Waning Crescent on August 1 has an illumination of 41%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On August 1 the Moon is 22.98 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

From Plentiful Earth

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, August 1, to Saturday, August 7,2021

All Signs

The planet Uranus was discovered on March 13, 1781. It represents earthquakes, explosions, burnt toast and jokes that fall flat. In other words, unpredictable surprises from the horrific to the absurd. It portends accidents and arguments as well as a lottery win, an unexpected invitation, or a surprise gift. Uranus takes 84 years to go through all 12 signs, being in one sign for 11 years. Right now, Uranus is in Taurus. This month the Sun is in Leo, which is at odds with Taurus, which explains bizarre events, accidents, family rebellions and sudden changes. But we will survive! By the way, I use the British pronunciation of Uranus: (UR-anus instead of the American one: Ur- ANUS (and if you had to say it as much as I do – you would, too.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This continues to be a great time for Aries because both the Sun and Mercury are supporting your sign. In fact, they will generate opportunities for you to enjoy parties, social occasions, the arts, attendance or participation in sports events plus, playful activities with children. This same influence urges you to take a vacation; and it also pumps possibilities for romance! Nevertheless, this week, the same areas might hold some unexpected surprises and moments of rebellion. (Aries parents will notice this with their kids.) Fortunately, matters related to your job, your health and even your pet are supportive in a pleasant way. (Very nice.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your focus continues to be on home and family this week. Many of you will be more involved than usual with a parent. Family discussions will definitely take place, perhaps addressing the need for home repairs? However, this is also when you might encounter some rebellion or surprises and mishaps due to domestic arguments or something that impacts your home. A small appliance might break down or minor accident could occur. Fortunately, the opportunities for you to enjoy vacations, fun occasions, the arts, sports romance and playful activities with kids will abound. A solid week. Get ready for good times ahead!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You’re happy with your fast pace because you like life to be interesting! (You don’t do boring.) Short trips, discussions, appointments and errands are just some reasons you’re on the go this week. Admittedly, it behooves you to pay attention to everything you say and do because stressful aspects could encourage a few speed bumps to your plans. Pay attention to everything you say and do to reduce the possibility of accidents or goofy mistakes. Give yourself extra time (when you do anything) so that you have wiggle room to deal with the unexpected. Meanwhile, spontaneous entertaining at home will delight you. You might also buy something beautiful for where you live?

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Money, earnings and cash flow continue to be your primary focus this week. You might even have some excellent moneymaking ideas. Many of you will attract money to you as well! Nevertheless, something to do with money, cash flow, earnings and your possessions might encounter obstacles this week or something surprising or unexpected. Therefore, be mindful. Take care of what you own. Double check anything to do with your money and assets. Stay top of things to guard against the possibility of loss. Fortunately, you will be delighted to meet new faces, new places and new ideas, which are definitely coming your way!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a strong time for you because the Sun and Mercury are in Leo! Oh yes, it’s still your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of year because the entire world is having a Leo hit. That’s why everyone is making reservations for dinner, enjoying the arts, and watching sports as well as engaging in some saucy flirting. (Wink!) Nevertheless, unpredictable Uranus is at odds with your sign, especially this week. This might trigger feisty conversations with bosses and authority figures. You might be at odds with a parent or the police. You feel independent and ready to go out on your own. Fortunately, a sweet money surprise might come your way. (Perhaps a new job?)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This week you might feel vaguely unsettled. This is because the Sun and Mercury are “hiding” in your chart, and they’re at odds with unpredictable Uranus. On the upside, you might have some brilliant ideas or an epiphany about something. “Eureka!” But you might also feel like you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop – something like that. Don’t worry because this is a temporary feeling that will be gone by next week. On the upside, fiery Mars is in your sign, boosting your energy and making you proactive and eager to tackle anything in life. Meanwhile, fair Venus is also in your sign, making you charming and diplomatic with everyone. You might meet a new friend?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a popular week! Expect to enjoy the company of younger people. It’s an excellent time to define future goals so that you have a better grasp of what is ahead. Goals keep you on track and make future decision-making easier. However, Uranus might trigger some surprises – like a sudden difficulty with a friend or a member of a group? You might want to quit a group or avoid a friend? Or perhaps, someone feels this way toward you? Be patient and don’t jump to conclusions. Get your facts straight in case there is a confusion or misunderstanding that needs to be cleared up. Meanwhile, an unexpected love affair might take place. All of you will have a secret surprise that delights.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You look fabulous in the eyes of everyone else because the Sun is still at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering spotlight. (Your bathroom mirror is covered in kisses.) With Mercury up there as well, you will be skilled and proficient talking to people in authority – bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police. They will listen to you. Having said this, these of the very areas that will be interrupted for some reason because of the influence of Uranus. You might feel rebellious and want to quit your job or give your two cents worth to your boss. Worse yet, they might suddenly print out something from on high that you least expected to hear. Whatever happens, stay cool. You still look wonderful to everyone. You might meet a new friend this week, someone unusual or different. Help from an unexpected source is at hand.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your desire to travel and do something different is super strong this week. You need a change of scenery! You also want a chance to learn something new, which makes this a marvellous time to study. You might also be more focused on legal matters or something to do with medicine, publishing and the media. Nevertheless, these same areas are where you will encounter a surprise or an unexpected glitch. Travel plans might suddenly change or be cancelled. Anything could happen. Fortunately, fair Venus and Mars are at the top of your chart. Mars will arouse your ambition and encourage you to go after what you want; while Venus will grease the wheels with authority figures and render unto you all things that are due. (One hopes!)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You are concerned with practical matters, especially the wealth and assets of your partner, shared property, inheritances, banking matters and taxes – all this red-tape stuff. Generally, your sign is very good at dealing with this because Capricorn rules the government. Oh yes, we can take you anywhere. However, the sudden and unpredictable influence of Uranus will create some kind of upset in these same areas. You might receive news from the government that surprises you. Or something about banking or inheritances that require your attention. Just be aware of this. The good news is that you might get a sudden chance to travel somewhere – travel for pleasure! If so, act quickly because this window of opportunity will be brief.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This week the Sun and Mercury continue to be directly opposite your sign drawing your attention to your closest relationships – marriage partners, professional partners and close friends. This polarized position offers you the best opportunity all year to objectively view how you relate to others. Use this to learn something important. However, with Uranus at odds with the Sun this week, something unexpected might occur with your partner or close friend. They might demand more freedom in the relationship? They might have a surprising suggestion? You could have an argument? Fortunately, money, gifts and goodies will unexpectedly come your way that will surely soothe any ruffled feathers.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your ambition to get better organized is still strong. In fact, not only do you want to work harder and smarter, you also want to improve your health as well because you are setting the bar high. And why not? Unfortunately, these are the very same areas where Uranus will trigger a few problems and surprises. Computer glitches, staff shortages, interruptions to your job as well as unexpected news that is health-related might occur. Note: Something surprising might also relate to your pet? Therefore, keep your eyes open! Fortunately, this is a fabulous week to relate to partners and close friends. You might meet someone new and unusual?

A Beginner’s Guide to Tarot Cards

The last few years have seen a resurging interest in all things witchy, tarot cards among them. For some, tarot is a handy party trick, a way to help a friend make connections they might have otherwise resisted. For others, the tarot is sacred, a powerful tool with which to direct one’s life.

Though tarot cards have taken on a mystical meaning in the cultural imagination, they were originally intended as more of a parlor game. The cards have been used since at least the mid-15th century; the earliest recorded decks originated in various parts of Italy. Not until the 18th century was the tarot used for the divinatory (or occult) purpose we know it best for today — Antoine Court and Jean-Baptiste Alliette are credited with popularizing tarot “readings” in Paris in the 1780s.

Between those who think it’s a joke and those who think tarot cards are actual magic lies a vast group who find them insightful and fun, if not necessarily supernatural. Whether it becomes a hobby or a full-time job, tarot reading (for oneself and for others) can be an illuminating way to pass the time.
