What is Samhain?

 

Beltane of the Southern Hemisphere

Today, in the Pagan calendar, the north celebrate the coming of winter at Samhainn. And all the while the sun is peaking up from behind the lush vernal trees and dancing for us once more in the southern hemisphere, as we welcome Beltane on October 31st. Or as I like to refer to it Beltane of the underworld.

Beltane is  the Gaelic seasonal festival historically held to mark the midpoint between the spring equinox & summer solstice (Là Bealltainn in Scottish Gaelic; Lá Bealtaine in Irish). Fire is the traditional means of marking this spring festival of optimism & return.

Anglo-Saxon and Frisian Rune

From The Rune Site – Anglo-Saxon and Frisian Runes

The reason I have combined the Frisian and Anglo-Saxon rune sets together are due to their close relation to each other. Originally the Frisian set was created by expanding the Elder Futhark set by four runes (the first four listed below – Ac, Os, Yr and Ior). Then later one new rune, Ear, was added to form the Anglo-Saxon rune set sometimes called the Anglo-Saxon Futhork.

It should also be noted that the Elder Futhark rune Ansuz was renamed Aesc for these sets.

Ac

Sound: “a” as in “sat”
Stands for: Oak Tree
Casting meaning: This rune symbolizes great potential power and is a rune of great usefulness. Ac channels the power of strong, continuous growth from small beginnings to a powerful and mighty climax.

Witch’s Rune

The Crossed Spears

Keywords: Arguments, negativity.

Meanings: The Crossed Spears is a rune that signifies arguments and negative events. Often this can be of an upsetting nature, rather like the Tower card in the tarot. It is not all bad though. If it is near to a positive rune it may indicate the end of a quarrel and healing. Especially if it lies near the Rings. This rune could mean a promotion at work, or a fast recovery if you’re ill.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham- For more information about Phagos

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.

Teaching and inspiring others to master a subject is the physical manifestation of knowledge, or in old terminology, the Word made flesh. Beech tree bark makes a primitive form of paper. Phagos implies the written word and the transmission of knowledge through our uniquely human invention: writing.

Teachers and teaching are often undervalued in the modern West, with denigrations such as “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach,” being thrown about by the arrogant who have never been able to translate their mental skill in a way that consistently inspires others to learn. Bad teachers abound, and they can be bad for any number or reasons: some choose teaching when they have no passion for it, some want the glory of being labeled a teacher. Everybody knows that a good teacher is worth their weight in gold when it comes to the transmission of knowledge, and that a bad teacher is hardly worth the powder to blow them to hell, and often what a teacher is paid has nothing to do with what they’re worth. If you have a good teacher, let them know. Learn all you can while you are able to do so with the best teachers you can find (we live in the age of the internet, and a huge number of great teachers “live” there). Concentrate on a small number of subjects until you gain complete mastery, because you will take that knowledge with you long after your current flesh body dies. If you know a subject well enough to teach it, this Ogham is encouraging you to spread the wealth of your knowledge with other humans in a direct and potentially physical way such as writing.

Questions when you draw Phagos: …

Information About the Anglo-Saxon and Frisian Rune Sets

From The Rune Site – Anglo-Saxon and Frisian Runes

The Anglo-Saxon rune set was adapted early in the 6th century B.C.E. from a rune row known as the Frisian rune row. The Frisian runes were the result of a rapid change in the language in Frisia. With such a rapid change in the language more runes were eventually needed so the Elder Futhark was expanded by 4 symbols to bring the Frisian rune row to a total of twenty-eight rune staves. Later around the 7th century a twenty-ninth rune, Ear, was added to form the Anglo-Saxon rune set.

When the rune row was expanded a slight change was made to the order of the set. Ansuz, the fourth rune of the Elder Futhark, was replaced with a new rune, Os and Ansuz was renamed Aesc. While this may have been the only change to the shapes and names of some of the runes it was not the only change in rune order that we come across with this set (and its similar sets). In various manuscripts and on some carvings we see the runes in different orders. On a knife found in the Thames River in London we see the full rune row but in a different order. On the Thames River knife we still see that the fourth rune is Aesc, but the last eight runes are arranged differently leaving the rune Ear to be at the end of the rune order.

Most of the information for the order of the Anglo-Saxon and Frisian rune sets is known because of the Thames River knife, also known as the Thames scramasax, and the Vienna Codex. The Vienna Codex is an early 9th century Anglo-Saxon manuscript that does provide a complete version of the Anglo-Saxon rune row.

What is the Linestrider Tarot Deck?

From TarotX.net – For more information on the Linestrider Tarot Deck

I. Introduction and review Linestrider Tarot Deck

The Linestrider Tarot, illustrated by Siolo Thompson and released by Llewellyn Publications, is a 78-card deck of travelers between two worlds – whose lives span both worlds, ideas, mental states, or reality.

This deck of cards refers to that concept, combined with the traditional Rider-Waite Smith standard (RWS), creating delicate, minimal, and appealing cards. In folk, there is a margin that separates the visible world from the invisible world on many levels, and Linestriders are magical people who live those lives or gather knowledge from both sides of the line or the edge. Linestriders tour through the routes that separate ideas, discipline, mental state, world, and reality.

With the stable basis of the Rider Waite-Smith Tarot deck, the Linestrider Tarot both expands and reduces the look of the classic Pamela Coleman Smith deck. Human figures appear in only half of this deck while the rest are animals, fulfilling the roles commonly performed by humans in many standard RWS decks. With an unusual sensuality and sensitivity, artist Siolo Thompson described humans as mysterious and dreamy, and animals are wise and intelligent creatures.

This is a 78-card tradition-oriented Tarot deck, with 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 fully illustrated Minor Arcana cards. The Major cards remain the old title and the four Minor suits are Wands, Swords, Cups, and Pentacles. Court cards include Page, Knight, Queen, and King as usual.

The card size is 7 x 12 cm [2.8 x 4.7 inch] – the standard size of a regular Tarot deck. The deck weight is well-made and hand-fitted. The card is quite heavy-handed but flexible, has a smooth edge and a light shade. Linestrider Tarot deck has quite meticulous images, delicate and elegant colors. The work is a bizarre mix of minimalism in many respects such as watercolor, comic style, subtle pencil brush strokes; realism, and symbolism.

The image on the card has an open and blank background; close-up images seem to be simple with a layer of watercolor and pencil that create clever symbols that are consistent with the lower stimulus-center-space-threshold image.

3D Bennu

Image Credit: NASAGSFCU. Arizona – Stereo Image Copyright: Patrick Vantuyne

Explanation: Put on your red/blue glasses and float next to asteroid 101955 Bennu. Shaped like a spinning toy top with boulders littering its rough surface, the tiny Solar System world is about one Empire State Building (less than 500 meters) across. Frames used to construct this 3D anaglyph were taken by PolyCam on the OSIRIS_REx spacecraft on December 3, 2018 from a distance of about 80 kilometers. With a sample from the asteroid’s rocky surface on board, OSIRIS_REx departed Bennu’s vicinity this May and is now enroute to planet Earth. The robotic spacecraft is scheduled to return the sample to Earth in September 2023.

Birthday Horoscope

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS OCTOBER 23, then you are a romantic at heart. You are a mysterious Scorpio, however. You tend to expect a certain level of loyalty from your friends and you have some idealistic notions about love.

If today is your birthday, you are also a distinctive person. In a relationship, you have a tendency to keep it private but demand a lot. Ironically, you’d make a great private investigator. People born today are known to have unmistakable gut instinct.

When it comes to you and your family, you guys are close. You love your siblings and find that you are not as close to your cousins. The October 23rd birthday personality is affectionate and spiritual. You practice meditation generally in your daily routine as a part of relaxation techniques.

Mostly, you could be vulnerable especially when you are sleep deprived. Those of you born on this day could be lazy when it comes to relationships. Perhaps, you should find a balance between the two.

The 23rd October birthday love compatibility predictions show that you are a hopeless romantic. You love to be seduced and to do the seducing.

Although you don’t particularly care for hanging all out in public, you like to touch in private. Loyalty is a must if you want to be in a relationship with this Scorpio birthday person. You just don’t like a lot of attention like other Scorpions.

As the 23 October birthday zodiac sign is Scorpio, you are likely to be very close to your family members especially when it comes to your siblings. You still enjoy playing around with them possibly having memories of when you were naughty children.

You may have better parenting skills because of your close upbringing. Some friendships can be compared to as extensions of the family as well. As a lover, you can be so very passionate and creative.

The October 23 birthday horoscope also predicts that you may have idealistic dreams and hopes but you know how to handle your paper. Money may not be the most important thing to you. It could be possible that you haven’t found your professional niche. Someone like you may be interested in the thrill of a certain position. If it tests your skills and knowledge or even, a gift of having certain power that you need to improve on, you will do it.

Career options for the 23 October birthday personality are many. You are suited for many occupations especially when it comes to legal affairs or law enforcement. It gives you pleasure and satisfaction knowing that you can turn a negative situation into a winning campaign.

As the October 23rd birthday astrology rightly says, you can be an individual who is bloodthirsty and possibly manipulative. These qualities could be your downfall or you can use them as a positive feature. Your reputation is at stake so make your decisions carefully. Whatever field you choose, you will likely go at it with a lot of determination and with a competitive spirit.

When it comes to your health, Scorpio, you lack the ambition to work out. You have a tendency to think that maintenance is not necessary because your overall health is in good condition. However, you could spruce up your tennis game. It’s a great outdoor activity and it could be fun with the right person or people.

In the meantime, meditation seems to be working for you as a sleep aid. Your eating habits can contribute to your sleep patterns as well. Be sure to take your vitamins every day to get the maximum effects from them.

You are a mysterious Scorpio if you were born on October 23. You keep your business to yourself but would make an awesome detective or police officer. You enjoyed your childhood with your brothers and sisters and still embrace them with so much love and tenderness.

The October 23 birthday meaning suggests that you are determined to succeed as you have a competitive trait as well. Generally, your health is up for a challenge so, you should find a work out tailored just for someone born today.

I am Sorry for the Lack of Usual Post

So, I got a refurbished laptop and within a month it had a major problem. It went into sleep mode and would not come out of it. Yesterday WISH online shopping finally sent me the label to send it back. I went last evening and got it started on it way back to WISH. Which left me with either my desktop computer, which I can only sit at for about an hour until my back pain is so bad I have to lay down, or my Kindle tablet which takes me twice as long to post through. My wonderful fiancée took me to Rent-A-Center where he had coupons for a nice reduction in price for a brand new laptop, which I am using now. When we got home with it last evening I could not get on to use it. So, I put it aside very frustrated but I must have done something right because I did not have to take it back to the store to be able to use my own account on it. But as I was having a horrible morning I did not pick this laptop up to try to get on to it again until about 15 minutes ago and now here we are.

Now I have to take this one back because the Delete key doesn’t work. I give up for today. Looks like I will only be doing the daily and birthday horoscopes later today.

Druid Ogham

Huath

Barriers, toil, hard work, obstacles

Hawthorn (Crataegus spp.)

Letter: H

Huath indicates an obstacle or series of obstacles that must be overcome with no going around. This could mean learning a subject, for instance playing the piano, and the infamous 10,000 hours of practice any instrument requires to attain mastery.

Huath is a task that you must go through the long haul to make happen. For instance, Huath could be overcoming your own self-destructive behavior or getting over an obsession. It could also be starting the business of one’s dreams or mastering a field of study. Any way you slice it, there are no short cuts. The task at hand takes patience and immersion. You must look at the task from all sides, brainstorm it — Huath is the Spirit of Fire for a reason — and understand its limits. Forcing a route will simply not work. Huath is the idea that worthwhile goals often require personal sacrifice and perseverance through challenges. Look at the goal as no less than a test of your own character. Many lifetimes have brought you to this. Rise to the occasion. Be determined, even when the rest of life tries to distract you, deter you, and defeat your best efforts. The physical plane is designed to beat you down; that is this plane and it sucks. Too bad. Figure it out. Master yourself first, cast no blame, and learn to adapt to challenges.

Questions to ask when you draw Huath: …

Animal Spirit Guide and/or Helper

From SpiritAnimal.info

Oh, the Blue Jay! Through the magic of symbolism, the Blue Jay teaches us to follow our feelings and intuition. As a spirit animal, it reminds us that our personal power is in our own hands and that we are free to take flight at any time, which is another way of saying that we have the freedom to choose our own path in life. The Blue Jay is playful yet serious, curious and yet sly, intelligent and cunning. It is also wise and perceptive. Whether a friend or foe, the Blue Jay teaches us how to be realistic and yet optimistic, careful and yet daring. In its expression of personal power, it symbolizes how we can rise above obstacles and challenges in our life.
