August 22nd Birthday Horoscope

August 22 Zodiac Sign Is Leo

Birthday Horoscope Of People Born On August 22

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS AUGUST 22, then you are a Leo who is generous, loyal and will make a good and steady partner personally or professionally. You make an awesome leader. You are sometimes sensitive to others and their feelings. But you are always correct in whatever you do.

You tend to throw your weight around at times. Some say it is just because you are ambitious. As the August 22nd zodiac characteristics show, you could be bossy, opinionated and conceited. Oh yeah… and impatient.

What your birthday says about you is that you are likely to give a lot of thought to the past which sometimes, gives you hope for the future. It is those times that you have peace within self, and you are radiant.

It’s when you are unpredictable that you could be at your worse or your very best predicts the August 22 birthday personality attributes. It is one of the traits that make you who you are today. You like attention.

At the same time, you are magnetic. People are drawn to you and your charming personality. The August 22 horoscope shows that you can be independent, down-to-earth individuals. Even so, you are open to new ideas especially those that will return a profit. You are always on a lookout for new opportunities and make the most out of it.

Usually, an August 22 Leo will enjoy the company of a younger crowd. Your lover should be sure and confident. But it seems as though you can attract some interesting characters. There is something about the “bad boy syndrome” that is a part of your attraction. Mainly, it is because you are not afraid to do anything.

According to the August 22 horoscope, friends and family of this Leo usually are devoted individuals. You do not hang around many people as you are not inclined to be sociable. You typically don’t smile at everyone you meet. You do not trust people, and that can keep you at arms distance with a stranger.

With someone who has a close relationship with this zodiac birthday person, is a friend who is valued and loved. A sure way to this lions nest is through friendship. Just getting you to be even a tad more trusting and the patient could improve your love life.

The August 22 birthday personality is one who could use some guidance when it comes to careers and professions. A counselor or someone you may look up too as a mentor of sorts could give you shortcuts and advice based on experience. If you could realize what your talent or your passion is, you could be on the right track.

Not only will you need advice on choosing a useful and compatible job, but you will also need budgeting skills. Spending has its limits even on the credit card. The credit card should be kept for emergencies only and in the hands of a trusted friend or shredded. Keeping up with debts and credits is not your thing, honey.

Let’s talk about your health and well-being. The August 22 astrology predicts that an accident is waiting to happen. You tend to suffer from back pain or problem knees. You do not have to be old to have arthritis, so it is never too early to start preventive measures.

Take your calcium supplements and always use protection when walking and or jogging. When you begin to see the results of your efforts, you will smile more. Typically, this Leo birthday person believes that you need to look good to feel good.

Leos with a birthday on August 22 can be a gentle lion and even romantic when you want to be. But you can also be moody, irrational and temperamental.

One thing needs to happen for you to enjoy life truly. You need to trust more in people especially in self. Determination and self-confidence will take you further than validation from a friend will. You don‘t need the approval of anyone. Just be you!

Daily Feng Shui News for Jan. 28th – ‘Ending The Month of January’

Author Alfred Lord Tennyson, when referring to each New Year, once wrote: ‘Ring out the old, ring in the new, Ring happy bells, across, the snow; The year is going, let him go; Ring out the false, ring in the true.’ As we come to the end of January, let’s ring out all the old energies that might still be sticking around your space. Ring a brass or metal bell a total of nine times in each corner of the main floor of your house. Do this three times while ringing the bell up above your head, three times ringing it in front of your heart and then lower the bell to your side and ring it three times in succession. Walking around your main floor in a clockwise direction, starting and ending at your front door or entrance, ring this bell in every corner and then know that you’ve rung out the old to make way for all the fabulous new.

Let’s Get Crafty – Making a Smudging Stick

Making a Smudging Stick

Be aware of any dangerous chemical reactions or allergies to the plants being used. If you intend to burn a plant in a smudge stick do your research into the plant first to ensure that what you are burning is not dangerous to your health. Always find out if you are allergic first, and have another person on hand or ready to help you if something goes wrong. Call 911 or the appropriate telephone number if a dangerous condition occurs.

Always be careful of how you burn your smudge stick, ensuring that you do not burn yourself. Always use proper fire preventative measures; place burning objects within or upon the appropriate fire burning apparatus. Be aware that holding the smudge stick within your hands can result in burning your hands.

When wrapping the bundle, you should be careful to wrap tightly enough to hold the stems and leaves in place, but not to cut them.

Humidity is a factor in dry time, ensure that your bundle has dried fully before attempting to burn it.

Ensure that there is no mold/mildew growth upon your bundle before burning it.

~Ingredients~

  • Herb(s) appropriate for the smudging
  • String that will safely burn, such as jute line or cotton string

~Process~

  1. Select your fresh herb from the plant (unless you can get long stems of plants elsewhere).
  2. Cut the plant according to size. Plants which are more leafy should be cut in smaller sections, and those that are less leafy can be cut in larger sections.
  3. Cut the string to a good length, such as five to six feet.
  4. Place the pieces according to like, stems to stems and leafs to leafs.
  5. Wrap string around the base, leaving a few inches of string loose.
  6. Wrap up from stems to leafs, then back again in a crisscross pattern.
  7. After returning to the base, tie the few inches from before to the end of your string.
  8. Trim if necessary to give a uniform look.
  9. Place your bundle in a place where it shall dry.

Celebrating Our Spirituality for Sept. 7 – Kermesse

Gypsy Comments & Graphics

September 7

Kermesse

This unique festival dates back to 15th-century Germany. Traditionally, this weeklong celebration focused on the digging up of an effigy that had been buried the year before. The object was ritually unearthed and then mounted on a brightly decorated pole that was paraded through the streets to announce the beginning of the festival. The opening procession was followed by a week of games, feasting and dancing. At the end of the festival, the participant would dress up in their mourning attire and rebury the effigy in its grave, where it would remain until the next Kermesse.

Reincarnation, Free Will And The Future

Reincarnation, Free Will And The Future image Author: Lonewind
In following the course of the current discussion on reincarnation and free will a thought has been persistently nagging away in the back of my mind. What if we are simply not looking at the whole picture – missing a critically large part of the concept while spending too much time looking back and not nearly enough, as in none at all, looking forward? Quite probably overlooking the surprisingly obvious should we step back and view the subject from a different perspective.
I have noticed that virtually all of the sources I have read over the years spent their time discussing past lives, karma, lessons to be relearned, old debts to be repaid, unfinished business to be taken care of, etc, etc. But there was a virtually complete lack of discussion concerning the future, and our personal preparation for it. I have since developed the very deep seated impression that the vast majority of us seem to regard a future life as some grey area of little importance which is casually allowed to be pushed aside by the pompously important and pervasive press of the here and now. That future being too remote and insubstantial to worry about at the moment. And I also believe that this is a fundamentally misguided approach – one that we all take unwittingly to a greater or lesser degree. Thereby ensuring that our next life my be surprisingly like this one – including all of the associated heartburn and frustration factors attached to not being or accomplishing something which is very important to our evolution as individuals.
Only a rare few among us seem to have a different perspective which guides them, occasionally consciously but predominantly otherwise, along a much different path. A path that, if you think about it for a moment, has a precedent in a relatively recent period of Western history. (I’ll expand on this point in a bit.)
I recently heard a comment on my favorite classical music radio station* that Mozart believed that he had been a musician in a great many previous lives and this was what gave him the ability to create his remarkable body of work with such ease and to perform it so adroitly. Interestingly, there have been a surprising number of composers of classical music who were brilliantly creative and demonstrated it at extremely young ages. And while I have never heard of one of them sharing Mozart’s opinion (remember the times they lived in!), it leads me to the conclusion that – quite probably – Mozart was absolutely right.
Think back along your life path and ask yourself this question: How many times have I met someone that seemed to have a natural, possibly even uncanny, “feel” for the way things need to be done in a given situation in their chosen field – or on occasion in a completely unrelated area? Those “go to” people who have an indefinable and unique talent for getting whatever done quickly and efficiently while the “degree people” or “management staff”** are thrashing around ineffectively. Where does this unique ability to know and understand instinctively things that so many of the rest of us struggle with come from?
In my current life I have had the privilege of knowing a small few of these people, working with and around them. And, while not all of them had the most pleasant of personalities, the experience has been both fascinating and very enlightening. These individuals have also seemed to be fairly evenly split on their ability to articulate the whys and wherefores of their creativity or were tongue tied and inclined to just a mumbled “that’s the way it needs to be” with no further explanation.
Based on these experiences and an awareness of cyclic patterns I have come to the conclusion that we all spend some indeterminate number of lifetimes, the number varying with the individual, exploring some specific field of interest or body of knowledge that appeals to our essential spirit. And that when we pass over into the summerlands that interest, curiosity and acquired knowledge travels with us and on our return to this plane of existence some of the essence of what we learned in that previous life returns with us. That knowledge may not manifest itself in an obvious manner, as in the example I used concerning the classical music composers earlier, but it will be there. It may appear as subtly as an innate ability to seemingly effortlessly grasp the fundamentals of a specific subject or group of subjects in school or the offhanded application of unexpected out-of-the-box thinking to solve some problem. Or it may be an unusual ability to master an extremely difficult and wide array of interrelated disciplines in a complex and dynamic field. Then again it may manifest as an “obsession”, i.e. an unexplainable and intense interest in travel, sports, art, science, a competitive environment or some other activity unrelated to what the insensitive, or insecure, think you should be doing.
And perhaps that is the clue that Mozart left behind for us to trip over in broad daylight – that some measure of the essence of what we know, as well as the essence of what we are, travels forward with us from life to life as we evolve as individuals into the future.
To accept that life is like a great wheel is to accept that as we go around the circle of life we are also completing a life cycle with each turn. Then by definition, each turn of the wheel is an individual lifetime. When we are born we are at the beginning of the day so to speak. When evening comes, our appropriately called twilight years, we prepare to rest for the evening so we may get a fresh start in the morning. And so it goes. From my perspective, a given lifetime is but a day in an indeterminately longer lifetime. And following this line of reasoning leads me to the conclusion that some essence of what we know follows us from life to life just as it does from day to day in a given life. The difference being that our knowledge on a daily basis in a given lifetime is vastly more detailed than the more general essence of specific knowledge that follows us through consecutive lifetimes.
And this leads me to another thought. I strongly suspect that most of us are dissatisfied with some portion of the direction of our lives to some degree and are looking for some way to do something about it at some level. And that’s where we need to follow our instincts, get to know and hopefully understand our “passion”, get friendly with all of those things we have had a long term interest in but kept putting on the back burner for some reason. While it’s probably not even remotely reasonable or practical for most of us to chuck it all and “do what you really want to do” that doesn’t mean that you can’t devote some time to studying those interests. Maybe take a few classes at the local college or adult education center, join a club of like minded people, go to the library or used bookstore and pick up a few recommended volumes. Immerse yourself in your newfound knowledge and see how well it fits. And if you’re not comfortable with what you’ve learned in your explorations then that body of knowledge is not for you at this time. Just be careful that you do not move on too soon or linger too long – keep in mind that the world is full of lousy teachers, opportunistic frauds, poorly written books and the most remarkable diamonds in the rough lurking in unexpected places (one of which might be hiding right in front of your eyes).
And here is where free will enters the picture. A bit earlier I mentioned that “rare few” who seem to be guided by a different perspective. I surmise that perhaps these people experienced a dynamic lifetime during the Renaissance Period when Europe was painfully shaking itself out of its self-inflicted dark ages, recently referred to as The Age of Religion, following the fall of Rome. A remarkable period with an explosive growth of knowledge, both rediscovered and new, infusing the European mind and immersing many influential people in some form of continuous education and discovery throughout their lives, or at least a substantial portion thereof. Following this line of thought to its obvious conclusion it appears to me that these people may have consciously, or more likely subconsciously, made the decision, a powerful exercise of free will in that period, to make the pursuit of knowledge a major influencing factor in their future lives.
And that is where free will is such a critical element of our individuality and growth. Free will is where the rubber meets the road.
If we choose to make continuous learning and education an intrinsic part of this life and all of our future lives we can confidently look forward to more fulfilling incarnations arching rainbow-like across our individual futures as we continue to follow our paths of growth around the ever-changing circle of life. Or you can choose to continue stumbling along blindly, not knowing your passion or purpose, and at some point in your next life you will ask, “Why me – what did I do wrong?” Just like you did in your last incarnation.


Footnotes: * My favorite classical music radio station – you can find them at http://www.KCME.org and they do webcast. A member supported source of classical music and jazz that operates 24/7. No, I don’t work there, just love the music.
** “Degree people” or “management staff” – not intended as a slap at those who have earned a degree and are serious about doing a good job. But is definitely and intentionally aimed at the insubstantial degree wavers and pointy hair bosses we all have suffered under.

Let's Talk Witch – Hocus, Pocus! Making Your Own Potions!

goth114

Hocus Pocus, Making Your Own Potions

Making potions is a type of spell work. You need to focus clearly on your intentions and visualize what you want the outcome of your potion/ spell to be.  

In order to make your potion, try to make sure your environment is in good shape before you begin making your potion. The fewer distractions around you the easier it will be to concentrate and focus your energies on the potion.  

As far as ingredients and items you need to make your potions, always make sure you try to use fresh organic ingredients when possible. When it comes to items you need use what you can find — you don’t need a cauldron to make a potion for example, a saucepan will work just as well.

Also be sure to have a incantation or chant ready for when you are making your potion. Incantations and chants not only make your potions more powerful they also drive home your intentions.

Shout It To The Rooftops, “GOOD GLORIOUS MORNING TO ALL MY DEAR FAMILY & FRIENDS!”

 

 

Good Glorious Sunday Morning To Everyone!

 

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,

May the clarity of light be yours,        

May the fluency of the ocean be yours,        

May  the protection of the ancestors be yours.

Today and evermore…..

Good Morning, Dear Friends! Here is Today’s Affirmation, Thought & Meditation Especially For You!

Today’s Affirmation for Sunday, August 12

 “I resolve to speak and act with a pure mind. When I do, happiness follows as my shadow.”

Today’s Thought for Sunday, August 12

 Do not assume that only those lives marked by grand achievements or spectacular heroics have value. An ordinary life, striving for virtue and wisdom, is an achievement in itself.

Today’s Meditation for Sunday, August 12

Listen for the Bells

According to myth Celtic shamans used sacred branches hung with silver bells to open doors between the material and spirit worlds. Close your eyes and imagine hearing the music of the silver bells. Approaching the sound you see a gateway formed by two blossoming trees. Passing through, you find yourself in another world. Ahead of you the guardian of the gateway is tending a cauldron over a fire. The guardian fills a chalice with liquid from the cauldron and hands it to  you. The spicy drink replenishes your strength. The guardian tells you to return whenever you need to, reminding you to listen for the silver bells. You pass back through the gateway and open your eyes. You feel full of life and energy.

Good Lazy, Hazy Sunday Morning To All My Wonderful Friends!

Days of the Week Comments=

Good Sunday morning all! I must apologize for running late. I have been working on the blog. I am trying to get everything caught up and added the way it is suppose to be. I am going to get some information on the two blank page on the main screen today (one way or the other, lol!). Even if I have to hog tie a little bobcat! Razzy has been up playing like a wild kid. I am hoping I have wore her out and she will sleep for a couple of hours. She tickles me. The first thing she does in the morning is take her big paws and wrap them around my leg. This way she had ahold of me and I am not going anywhere. It is her way of telling me, “time to play, momma!” And she doesn’t play for a few minutes then quit. No, no, she plays for hours. Right now, we are down to about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I am hoping as she gets older, she will want to nap more. I hope!

Well how did you like yesterday’s blessing? Like I said it is one of my favorite ones. It is a little bit dirty but at least you can tell who doesn’t like you, lol! Here is another blessing I would like to leave you with today…..

May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been,

The foresight to know where you are going,

And the insight to know when you have gone too far”  

Have a very blessed and relaxing Sunday, my friends!

Lighten Up – Lord of the Ants

Lord of the Ants

by Karl Lembke

(sung to the tune of “Lord of the Dance”)

Well we cleansed with sugar ’cause the salt was gone, And the color was right though the substance might be wrong, And when the water dried, it was sticky, my oh me, It attracted all of the ants, you see,

(chorus) Ants, ants, all over they shall be, I am the lord of the ants, you see. I’ll crawl on you, and you’ll itch from me, And you’ll dance with ants in your pants, said he.

 

We have ants in the carpets and we’ve ants in the drapes, We have ants in the kitchen dancing galliards on the grapes, We have ants in the bedroom and what may be more fun, We have ants in our circles now from sun to sun.

(chorus)

‘What to do’ cried the priestess, ‘what to do’ cried the priest, ‘All the baits and the sprays haven’t helped us in the least, ‘The buggers eat it up and it only makes us sick, ‘All in all I’d say it is no pic-nic!’

(chorus)

We stood round the fire while the flames lept up high, With the sound of the sirens wailing up to the sky, Though the bug bombs exploded it could still have been worse, At least now we’re free of the ant lord’s curse!

(spoken: “Oh hell!”)

(chorus)

Daily OM for June 12 – Roles of Support

Doing Our Best Work

by Madisyn Taylor

 

Each one of us is very much needed and we all have our role to play adding to the success of the whole.

 

In the great symphony of life, we all have important parts to play. While some people are best suited to be conductors or soloists, their contributions would be diminished considerably without the individual musicians that lend their artistry to the fullness of an orchestra. The magical accents of the percussion section might sound random and out of place without the music they accompany. But any one member of an orchestra, doing less than their best at their particular part, can destroy the harmony of the whole piece, such is their importance. So although we may not receive the same amount or quality of attention as another, all of our contributions are valuable and integral to the success of the whole.

When we do our tasks well, we infuse them with our unique energy, making each act a gift. Each of our personalities and talents are suited to different roles of support. Even leaders and star performers support others in their own way. We can look around us at any moment to see that while we nurture some people with our work, others are supporting us with their gifts. Doing any job from this place within us allows us to do our part with humility and gratitude, while also learning lessons that move us steadily toward our goals.

When we can be fully present in every job that we do, we bring the fullness of our bodies, minds and spirits to the moment. Our contribution is enhanced by the infusion of our talents and abilities, and when we give them willingly, they attract the right people and circumstances into our experience. Anything we do begrudgingly limits the flow of our energy and closes us off from the good that is available to us in every situation. But by giving the best in us to make the world around us better, we open ourselves to receive the best from the universe in return.

 

Daily OM 

Daily OM for May 26th – The Benefits of Singing

The Benefits of Singing
Harmonizing with the Universe

by Madisyn Taylor

 

The act of singing is one of the easiest ways of raising the vibration of your body as you harmonize with the universe. 

Singing is an act of vibration. It takes music from the realm of the unformed– whether that is in your mind or from that magical space of inspiration–and moves it from within to without. From the first breath singing moves the energy in a circular way inside your body. As the breath fills your lungs, it brushes against the second and third chakras—the centers of creation and honoring self and others. Instead of merely exhaling, pushing the air past the fourth and fifth chakras where heart charka and the center of will and intention reside, singing engages both the heart and mind. Sound vibrations from vocal chords resonate in the sinus cavities, filling the head with motion and sound while the brain lights up with the processing of the mathematics of music. This marriage of activities brings the third eye into play and opens the door for inspiration from the crown chakra before sending the sound out into the world.

Once the vibration begins, it is sustained with each note, moving throughout your body and the space around you. This can help you to harmonize your frequency with the world and with the divine. The use of the voice can bring about catharsis, a cleansing from the expression of emotion, which is why we feel better after singing certain types of songs. All of this occurs even if we are not conscious of what we are singing, but when we really connect with an intention, the power of the voice and music together are powerful tools in creation.

Even if you are not a singer by nature or talent, you are not left out. If you have a voice, it is your birthright to celebrate life with song. It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel you have a nice voice. Chanting or humming, singing solo or with others, your voice is yours to enjoy. Whether you sing along to the radio or use vocalization as part of your meditation time, singing and harmonizing are healing activities that bring your body’s vibrations into alignment with the universe.
