Spell – A- Day – Rune Meditation for Clearing Energy Flow c. 2011

 

Spell – A- Day – Rune Meditation for Clearing Energy Flow
Incense of the day: Peony
We have all felt the frustration of spells that flop. While it’s possible that a failed spell is just an indication that the universe has another agenda for you, it’s also very possible that there is a hidden obstacle in the energy flow. Issues with confidence and empowerment are among the greatest saboteurs that block energy. The runes of Ken (k), Haegl (h), and Gyfu (g) will be used in a guided imagery to open and uncover disruptions and to balance the chakra energy flow. Visualize Ken over the root chakra. Focus on opening the energies flowing from your root to your crown. Reveal any blockages by positioning Haegl over your root chakra. Visualize this rune uncovering disruptions as its energy flows to your crown. Return Haegl’s flow from the crown to the root, uncovering any “manifestation” blockages. Visualize Gyfu flowing from your root to your crown to balance your chakra energy. Focus on and journal any feelings or perceptions that you encountered. Reprogram any obstacles that were uncovered.

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Hermit



The Hermit denotes a need to have some space between you and the everyday hustle and bustle of our busy world. The Hermit needs to retreat. Indeed, happiness for The Hermit requires seclusion, freedom from material wants, and time for intense introspection. The answers The Hermit needs cannot be found in our physical world. The truths he seeks are internal, spiritual, and the distraction of a well developed social life can only impede his quest for his personal truths. Still, although not anything remotely resembling extroversion, The Hermit does sometimes need to share time with others; so he can both learn and teach, guide and be guided. The Hermit’s time spent amongst people depletes his energy rapidly. To avoid mental and physical overload he has to retreat from social settings quickly.

Your Personal Daily Love Tarot Card

The Fool

You deserve a partnership that deepens as you get to know each other. Wait for the person who has risen above commitment immaturity if commitment is your desire. The Fool reminds us that dating someone is not a mistake. It is falling in love and marrying them if it is not right. If your long-term relationship is encountering a difficult patch, now is the time to work together to rebuild.

Your Personal Daily Erotic Tarot Card

The Judgement

The Judgement card indicates that you’ve had some sexual hang-ups in the past, but you’re working toward getting over them. This is a period of transition, and although you’re doing the work, you may not be getting the exact results you desire. Forgive yourself for past missteps in order to take a sexual step forward today. Being afraid to express your true erotic self can even effect other areas of your life, so getting beyond your sexual inhibitions translates into a happier overall existence.

Psychic Tip of the Day

NEW SURPRISE
Your first big shock of the new year has arrived. It could be a welcome relief, but you may not know what to do with it. Were you expecting company?

Your Daily Charm

Today’s Meaning:
A course of events that cannot be altered has been set in motion within this aspect. Accept whatever happens in the near future and do not waste your time fretting about it–you can do nothing.

General Description:
This was a favorite charm in Egypt, worn in order to frustrate magicians, sorcerers and evil wishers from bewitching the wearer and stealing the soul from the heart; for it was the general belief that if the soul left the heart, the body would soon fade away and perish. The ancient Egyptians also believed that, after death, the heart was taken, in the underworld, and weighed against the symbols of the law; if found perfect, it was restored to the body, which at once came to life again and enjoyed everlasting felicity.

 

February 2, 2023 Birthday Horoscope

May the next year of your life be more positive than the past year!

FEBRUARY 2 birthday horoscope predicts that you have your unique way of looking at the world. The February 2 horoscope sign is Aquarius, and you are timeless! You seem to freeze any signs of aging. You look younger than you are. You have always put your best foot forward, and it shows on the outside as it comes from within. This is how it should be.

February 2 birthday personality comes with a vibrant spirit, who is honest and determined. Aquarians born on this date tend to have odd personalities. You are a free-willed individual which means your way of thinking is not necessarily like anyone else’s.

You are, let us say, unconventional. I have always said that people who are less fortunate have labels such as “crazy,” and people with a lot of money are “eccentric.” The future of person who born on 2 February will be different.

People with Aquarius birthdays, you are known for their progressiveness and independent character. You are super intelligent. You are the eleventh astrological sign and bear the Water Bearer as your symbol. Born on February 2, you are ruled by the planet Uranus.

February 2 horoscope forecasts that your job and your family are important to you. You find a balance to interact with each side as you get your muse from your family. Aquarians are enterprising people with a gut instinct that you trust. You are the peacemaker that everyone comes to.

Being an Aquarian, you have strong personalities that fall into two groups. These Aquarians are quite the opposite. One is shy and sensitive. The other is a loud and attention seeking Aquarian. Whichever birthday horoscope profile you come under, both are stubborn individuals. On the other hand, you look for the truth and have strong opinions.

While developing close relationships with friends and partners, it is not the easiest thing to do for February 2 birthday personality. You find it difficult to let go. February 2 zodiac shows that you tend to put others on the back burner, irrespective of how they feel about them.

Your friends or lovers may say that you are not involved or unapproachable, but it goes deeper than that. It is your need to stay alive and to live well that you keep your nose clean and to the grindstone. Emotions can put a damper on things.

People are drawn to you, which is for sure. The list in your business contacts or your “little black book” keeps on growing. Listen Aquarius, and people are not objects that you take off the shelf when you want to. You have to decide what it is that you want and go for it.

What your birthday says about you is that the more friends you have, the more you distance yourself from others. You cannot be close with everybody you meet, but then, you know this already. When one individual has satisfied your interest, you move on to the next one.

When you look to your past, you will probably find that some situation still affects you. February 2 birthday personality bring this baggage to your current personal relationships. You should unpack your bags before committing to a long-term relationship or marriage and having children of your own. If you cannot do this, then perhaps it is better to remain alone, Aquarius.

Oh, but when you are in love, you can be a very attentive lover. You are romantic and with your creative side, you can shower your intended with lavish gifts. You work hard to provide all the comforts of life. You will love your partner a lot.

February 2 horoscope shows that those born today would not be happy unless they can make the lives of others better. Whatever Aquarians do, they will not compromise their autonomy. The Aquarian will let you know this. They are honest and forthright lovers.

Aquarius, you take risks and do not think of your health. You should know that holistic health is at your fingertips now. The menu has greatly improved its choices for awesome and healthy meals.

It is easier now that you can make your health drinks. Although you should not disregard the conventional doctor, a nutritionist would make a good addition to your list of contacts.

Being born on February 2, these Aquarians look for jobs with flexible hours or a job that they can work at their own pace. You do not like punching a time clock for anybody. If it meant taking a job that paid less money, you would.

As long as you did not have to give up yourself, you can reach your full potential. Aquarians born on this date have a knack for bookkeeping or accounting. You can keep track of your finances with ease.

Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a gentle day and the perfect time to kick back and relax. You might want to choose quiet solitude with your favourite drink and past time. It’s your choice. Nevertheless, you also will enjoy entertaining at home or spending time with family members, especially females.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Enjoy interactions with siblings, neighbours and relatives today because everyone wants to socialize instead of work. However, those of you who write and explore creative avenues, will be productive today because you see beauty in your ideas as well as your everyday surroundings.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Be careful shopping today because you will be tempted by many beautiful things. So many choices! So little money. (It’s tough having champagne tastes on a beer wallet.) Nevertheless, you might find a tiny reward for yourself? Beauty doesn’t always have a price tag.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign dancing with fair Venus, which will promote pleasant feelings between you and everyone around you. That’s why this is a good time to be with friends and get out and have a good time! You will love to see them, and they will love to see you.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Solitude in beautiful surroundings might suit you today. Nothing lonely. Au contraire! You feel elegant and special. The thing is, you just want to avoid the insane busyness of the world around you – at least, for a little time. Let’s be civilized.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a wonderful day to schmooze with others. You will enjoy the company of friends; you will also enjoy the company of professional groups, clubs and associations. Admittedly, because everyone wants to have good time, you won’t get much work done. (Venus encourages laziness.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You make an elegant impression on others today because the Moon is high in your chart, which means people notice you more than usual. However, because the Moon is dancing with Venus, others will see you as attractive, charming and diplomatic, which indeed – you are.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is the perfect day to travel for pleasure, if you can possibly swing this. However, you might also indulge yourself by expanding your knowledge through books, movies and film. Grab any opportunity to do something different, which will excite you. Like a tiny zap.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Discussions about how to divide or share something (perhaps an inheritance or some jointly-owned property) will go well today because everyone is cooperative and friendly. Furthermore, both sides want to see fairness achieved. I suspect the results will please you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Although you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others today because the Moon is opposite your sign; nevertheless, relations with everyone will be smooth and easy-going. This is an excellent day to discuss how to beautify your home. You will also want to entertain in style!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Don’t be hard on yourself if you don’t feel like working today. Do the bare minimum. This is a day for relaxation, socializing and enjoying beautiful surroundings. It’s also an excellent day for the arts and expressing your creativity. (Here, you will do much more than the bare minimum.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a wonderful day for creative, artistic people because you’re in touch with your muse. Reach out and explore new avenues. Delight in expressing your talents. This is also a strong and positive day for those involved in sports as well as those who work with children. Enjoy socializing! Romance will flourish!

If Your Birthday Is Today

US Pres. George Washington (1732-1799) shares your birthday today. You are a diplomat who values peace. You are intuitive, creative and determined. Without effort on your part, people notice you. This year it’s time to concentrate on your needs and what brings you happiness. Relationships might require extra kindness and helpfulness. In turn, you can ask for help, as well.

From MoonGiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waxing Gibbous phase. Visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

A Thought for Today – Daily Zen Thought c. 2011

If you want to perceive
And understand objectively,
Just don’t allow yourself
To be confused by people.
Detach from whatever you
Find inside or outside yourself.
Detach from religion,
Tradition, and society,
And only then will you
Attain liberation.
When you are not
Entangled in things,
You pass through
Freely to autonomy.

– Linji (d. 867)

To Those Of Your Celebrating Imbolc Today, May The Goddess Bless You On This Glorious Imbolc Morn’! c. 2019

It depends on your Tradition which day you celebrate Imbolc. We celebrated it yesterday and I know some of you might celebrate it today. We generally celebrate our Sabbats the day before for a reason. For instance, we celebrate Imbolc last night. We did our rituals, lit our fires, run out the old stale Winter air and the season, hopefully. We did some cleansing and we have a lot more to do today. We had a good feast and in spite of being so sleepy, we managed to stay up to greet the morning’s first light. The joy of celebrating the night before, it just unbelievable. You get to stay up and greet the new born Sun on one of the most glorious mornings of all, Imbolc. You can feel the freshness as the new born Sun comes over the horizon. As He rises His head and proclaims victory and Spring will return to us shortly. The magick courses through your veins and it seems you are recharged and ready to take on anything that comes your way. As the warmth of the Sun courses through your veins, you feel your magick grow and grow, till you feel like you are the most powerful witch on the face of Mother Earth.

We have made celebrating the Sabbats the night before a habit. If you have never done it, you need to try it. Just go outside and wait for the Sun to come up. You can feel the magick in the air as you welcome Him back. It is so magickal that you can actually hear the Sun talk back to you with His warm rays of light shining down upon you. I cannot explain it fully. It is something you have to experience for yourself. It re-generates your spirit and your soul. You feel the darkest of the Winter months fall off of you. You know when you see the Sun on this special day, it is a fresh start, a new season, a season of rebirth. It is truly a season for us to celebrate, the Sun has returned to us and with this we are promised the season of renewal and birth. Mother Earth is going to come back to life. The birds will sing, the grass will turn green, the flowers will bloom once again, life has come out of hibernation, it is awakening. Awakening to a new start, a new season, what a beautiful time of year this is. I can imagine you have figured out by now Imbolc is one of my favorite Sabbats.

Imbolc is a time for truly rejoicing. Go outside today and let the warmth of the Sun renew your spirit and fill your soul with the hope and joy the new season ahead holds for us.

Wishing You & Yours A Very Joyous & Beautiful Imbolc,

Lady of the Abyss
