Juno Flyby of Ganymede and Jupiter

Video Credit: Images: NASAJPL-CaltechSWRIMSSS;
Animation: Koji KuramuraGerald Eichstädt, Mike Stetson; Music: VangelisExplanation: What would it be like to fly over the largest moon in the Solar System? In June, the robotic Juno spacecraft flew past Jupiter‘s huge moon Ganymede and took images that have been digitally constructed into a detailed flyby. As the featured video begins, Juno swoops over the two-toned surface of the 2,000-km wide moon, revealing an icy alien landscape filled with grooves and craters. The grooves are likely caused by shifting surface plates, while the craters are caused by violent impacts. Continuing on in its orbit, Juno then performed its 34th close pass over Jupiter’s clouds. The digitally-constructed video shows numerous swirling clouds in the north, colorful planet-circling zones and bands across the middle — featuring several white-oval clouds from the String of Pearls, and finally more swirling clouds in the south. Next September, Juno is scheduled to make a close pass over another of Jupiter’s large moons: Europa.

The Origins of Halloween by Silver RavenWolf

Harvest Moon, velvet sky, pumpkins glowing, children laughing, costumes, candy, scary stories—just where did this autumn gaiety begin? Let’s look through those cobwebby corridors of time to unearth the exciting genealogy of the American Celebration we call Halloween!

Nothing is ever as simple as it seems—especially when dealing with history. Too often events and circumstances of our past were written or re-written by people who, for whatever reason, operated under an agenda, or simply wanted history to reflect how it should have been, rather than how it was. How, then, do we determine what is fact and what is fiction? In some cases, we can’t. In other situations, we dig.

The Celts

Many historians feel that the greatest strength in the Celtic people lies in their collective mythos. Wading through the romanticism to find unmodified information can prove a tricky endeavor. The earliest archaeological evidence we have of the Celts rest in France and Western Germany.  The Celtic people moved into Spain, Britain, and Switzerland between the fifth and first century BCE. They even ransacked Rome in 390 BCE.

The Celtic peoples celebrated four festivals called fire festivals–commonly know today as Samhain, Oimelc (Imbolc), Beltane, and Lughnasadh. Samhain (pronounced sow-in, sow rhymes with now) was the first and foremost a harvest festival relating to animal husbandry and preparations for the winter months. Fire is an element of cleaning, a vehicle of eradication, so it is not unlikely that fire would work itself into any type of religious celebration. Fire among the ancient peoples often represented an aspect of the divine.

What does the word Samhain mean? Well, we know what it doesn’t mean. There is no archeological or literary evidence of a Celtic god by the name of Samhain. This little slip of fact appears to have begum in the 1700s and continues in some misinformed publications today. The word Samhain actually means “summers end”.

So, where did this Lord of the Dead thing come in? Over time, Samhain took on a religious significance through ministrations of the Druids (the clergy of the Celt’s). Legends indicate that on Samhain all the hearth fires in Ireland were doused and then lit again from a central fire maintained by the Druids at Tlachtga. To the Celts, Samhain was a turning point from light into darkness, and it was thought that this break or fissure created easier access to their land of the dead, Tir nan Og.

The Druids

We need to know a little bit about the Druids to continue with our history of Halloween. The Druids were versed in all learning and were considered to have the gift of prophecy. They functioned as judge, ambassadors, healers, and religious leaders. The Druids first named the holiday Samhain.

 Feast of the Dead

As the Celtic religious system solidified so did the beliefs of the Celts concerning the dead—as has occurred in all religions, before and after the Celts. Since the turning points of the year were considered fissures in time and space, the Celts believe that the dead they loved so dearly could travel through time and space and return from Tir nan Og to visit them. The custom of leaving food at the table (the birth part of the treat part of trick-or-treat) was a gesture of welcome to the departed. From these visits came the belief that those who had gone beyond the land of the living could provide information on past or future events. This is how divination became associated with Samhain.

The Celts did not believe in devils or demons, but they did believe in the Fairy Folk, whom they thought inhabited the land of the dead (the land in-between). Fairies were thought to be resentful of humankind for taking over their land. Because time and space could be conquered on Samhain, fairies were said to roam countryside creating mischief and kidnapping a human or two now and then—just for fun, you understand.—except the humans never came back. Here then is the root of the scary stuff associated with Halloween. The mischief, of course, was caused by living humans, and accepted by the Celts as a psychological release before the onset of winter gloom—though I doubt they would explain it in those terms.

Is it odd, gross, or unusual that a group of people should set aside a day for the dead? Nope. Different cultures and religions have followed such a practice for centuries. Let’s get on our broom again and check out Rome and its contributions to Halloween.

Is it odd, gross, or unusual that a group of people should set aside a day for the dead? Nope. Different cultures and religions have followed such a practice for centuries. Let’s get on our broom again and check out Rome and its contributions to Halloween.

A Fly-BY of Ancient Rome

Rome had the habit of changing rulers as many times as you empty the lint trap in your dryer. Between 14 and 37 CE, Christianity had begun its rise in Rome. By 41 CE, Claudius had distinguished himself with the conquest of Britain. The Romans also had a harvest festival, so the Celts didn’t have much trouble blending the two holidays together after they came into contact with the Romans. It was around 314 CE when Constantine the Great declared the Roman Empire to be Christian, and the fate of Samhain and Druids was sealed.

 The Advent of Christianity

By the fourth and fifth centuries , Celtic Christianity had oozed into Ireland. St. Patrick has his hands full, and here is where the kettle starts to boil. At, first, the Pagans openly welcomed Christianity, but as Christianity filtered into the Celtic system, church officials had a few problems—mainly the Celtics didn’t want up their holidays or folk practices. The people were not willing to throw out traditions that were ingrained into their social structure. If you can’t get someone to completely change, what do you do? Compromise. And that’s exactly what happened. Samhain was changed to All Hollow’s Eve. To make the Pagan peoples adhere more closely to this new religion of Christianity, the clergy of the day taught the peasants that fairies were really demons and devils (remember, a concept totally unknown to Celtic belief or history) and their beloved dead were horrid ghosts and ghouls. The early Christian erroneously associated the Celtic land of the dead with the Christian concept of Hell.

To help the belief in Christianity along, Druids priestess were systematically murdered. Early Christians also taught the area peasants that their Lord of the Underworld was in fact Satan, which is ridiculous, as the two mythos don’t have anything in common. It appears that Christians misunderstood what the word Samhain meant: because the peasants use this celebration to honor the dead, Christians assumed that Samhain was the incorrect pronunciation of a Pagan deity in the Bible, recorded as Samuel, from the Semitic Sammael, meaning God of the under world.

The Witches

So far, we’ve talked about the land of the dead, how the early Christians managed to superimpose Satan onto Samhain, and how fairies got zapped into demons, but there has been no mention of Witches, commonly associated in our time with Halloween. Where did Witches come from?

During the Dark Ages, the Church sought to eradicate the Pagans and wise women from the countryside so that the church could amass both power and property. First, they had to devalue women because women kept the holy days, trained the children, and provided the cohesive socialization of the culture, thus women held the power to shape society. The church taught, among other things, that women had no souls. Once this teaching had occurred, it was only a small step to make them inhuman, and the Church was able to incite the superstitious populace.

The Celtic women were the strong hold of the family environment, and although the Celts accepted Christianity at first, they did not want to give up their family traditions or their lifestyle. The Church was not into free thinking—therefore anything that did not follow the church dictates was evil. Hence, the Witches (really the women) became evil. Since Samhain was a primary festival of the Celts and the Church had already determined that Samhain was evil, the association between Witches and Halloween was born.

All Saints’ Day / All Hallow’s EVE / Halloween

All Saints’ Day and All Hallow’s Eve (Halloween) were first introduced in the seventh century CE. All Saints’ Day was originally celebrated in the spring. The date was changed to November 1 to supplant Pagan beliefs because those pesky Pagans just refused to cough up their original Samhain. The day was to honor God and all his saints, known and unknown. All Saints’ Day later became Hallowmass, a mass to honor the dead. The Eve of All Hallow’s Day, October 31, became All Hallow’s Eve, which evolved into the word Hallowe’en. Although the church wished this time to be one of somber prayer and quite custom, the Celtics continued their customary bonfires and fortune telling.

All Souls’ Day is a bit different. This festival falls on November 2, a day to offer prayers and alms to assist the souls of those departed that manage to get stuck in purgatory, an in-between place that is neither heaven nor hell. Over the succeeding centuries, Halloween, like Christmas, picked up various customs and discarded others, depending on the complex socialization of the times and religious dictates.

Halloween Comes to America

Our first inkling of Halloween coming to America revolves not around a specific set of people (many indicate the Irish) but with William Penn’s motley collection of refugees from Europe. In 1663, Penn wrote a promotional tract about the Americans. As a result, fifty ships dropped the anchors in the Delaware River. They discharged persecuted souls from England, Ireland, Wales, and the Rhineland (now Germany). Collectively, the Germans and Irish shared Celtic heritage. Therefore many of the folk customs resonated together—including Halloween.

From 1684 through 1930, Halloween was more a time for tricking rather than for treating. Many of the tricks the German and Irish communities became universal, such as overturning outhouses, dismantling a wagon and putting it back together on top of a house or barn, and tying cows to church bells. The tricks often served as social function, such as mildly chastising a neighbor who exhibited antisocial behavior.

By 1910, several American manufactures were making or importing party products just for the American holiday Halloween. From noisemakers to costumes, a new holiday meant new business and an opportunity to make money.

The drawback to the new holiday came in the form of the “declared” Mischief Night, Goblin Night, or Devil’s night on October 30. Minor offenses, such as trying several garbage cans together and hanging them from a light pole, soaping windows with lard, and later, bars of hand soap, abounded. As the pranks grew to vandalism shopkeepers would bribe youngsters to ward off destruction of their property.

In an effort to stop the criminal behavior, the Boy Scouts, in conjunction with local town councils, cities, boroughs, instituted the custom of Trick-or-Treat night to help keep youngsters from naughty practices. By the 1930s the custom of trick-or-treating was well entrenched in our American culture. Halloween, like Christmas, became a holiday for children, and parents strove to make the holiday as much fun as possible for the enjoyment of their youngsters.

During he 1950s. ’60s, and ’70s our American Halloween stayed primarily the same, but in the ’70s and ’80s, with a recession coupled by a candy scare, groups and organizations once again sought to find appropriate avenues to make Halloween safe for America’s children. Halloween practices extended through the entire month of October. Haunted houses, parties, hay rides, plays, story hours, and numerous other events were held throughout the month.

In the mid-to-late 1990s certain sects of the Protestant Christian church declared war on Halloween. using the same erroneous propaganda cultivated hundreds of years ago. Other groups size Halloween for their own political agendas—hosting haunted houses showing aborted babies, drug addicts, and other modern day violent situations. This did not go over well, as the holiday had become an event primarily for children, not adult political issues. Radical Christian groups said that the holiday was Satanic—which, as we’ve seen from our research, is a bizarre and fantastic claim, based on misinformation, politicking, personal agendas and fear. With America’s policy of separation of church and state the battle for destroying Halloween in the United States is an uphill battle.

The original Samhain marked the the close of the agriculture season and functional third harvest festival. In America, Halloween has become the first holiday in our end-of-year rush for partied gaiety. Our Halloween functions as the opening of the three-month-long celebratory fest that includes Thanksgiving, Christmas, Yule, Kwanzaa, and Chanukkah, and ends with the popular American New Year.

As our children crave pumpkins with delightful chatter, adults find solace in a night when they can be whatever they want to be. We have little doubt about the joy this holiday bring to the American people. I am sure we will forever love the haunted house, the harvest Moon, the thrills and chills of a well-wrought tale—and, of course, the deliciously scary things that go EEEEK! in the night.

 Harvest Moon, velvet sky, pumpkins glowing, children laughing, costumes, candy, scary stories—just where did this autumn gaiety begin? Let’s look through those cobwebby corridors of time to unearth the exciting genealogy of the American Celebration we call Halloween!

Capture the moment like a pro! Check out our Moon photography tips for cell phones, professional cameras, and more.

The Moon is Earth’s constant companion, the first skywatching target pointed out to us as children. We watch its face change as the month progresses, and see patterns and pictures in its geological features.

It’s the object in the night sky that humanity knows best ― and the one that’s easiest to study. Whether your tools are a telescope, a pair of binoculars, or just your eyes, you can find plenty of features on the Moon.

We only ever see one side of the Moon from Earth. That’s because the interplay of gravity between Earth and Moon slows the Moon into a rotation that paces its own. The Moon rotates, but it rotates at the same speed that it orbits around Earth. This keeps the same side always turned toward us. We call this being “tidally locked.

The Moon has no glow of its own, but shines with the reflected light of the Sun. During its crescent phase in the twilight or dawn, you can also sometimes see the dark portion of the Moon glowing faintly in the sunlight that reflects off Earth, an effect called earthshine.

You can look at the Moon during any of its illuminated phases, but for better viewing of craters and mountains, try phases other than the full Moon. The shadows on the surface will be more pronounced, and help distinguish features you might otherwise miss.

Eyeballing the Moon

Looking at the Moon with only your eyes, you see mostly areas of white and gray. These gray patches are solidified volcanic lava flows. In the Moon’s youth, its interior was still molten, and magma would erupt onto its surface. These dark areas formed when massive asteroid or meteorite impacts on the Moon’s surface created basins. Because the impact basins were often the lowest places on the Moon’s surface, they would begin to fill with erupting lava. The lava was similar to the basalt that erupts on Earth and, like on Earth, cooled to form a relatively dark-colored rock. We call these areas the lunar seas, or maria.

The lighter-colored areas are called the highlands, and show the earliest crust on the Moon, dominated by a type of rock called anorthosite, which is primarily made up of the white mineral anorthite or plagioclase.

What you see on the Moon with your eyes only will vary depending on your eyesight. Give yourself plenty of time for your eyes to adjust and look carefully. You may be able to see some of the larger impact craters on the Moon’s surface if your vision is sharp enough, including Copernicus, Kepler, and Aristarchus and Tycho. You may even be able to see some of the bright streaks that are ray systems emanating from the Copernicus or Tycho craters, created when material was thrown outward by the force of the original impacts.

Lunar Sightseeing

Pick up a pair of binoculars, and the Moon transforms.

With binoculars, you’ll still see the entire Moon at once, but now it’ll have terrain. Smooth-looking patterns of gray and white resolve into craters and large mountain ridges. You’ll be able to tell where the Moon is relatively undisturbed and where it’s been pockmarked by impacts. Binoculars introduce texture, especially when you look at the Moon when it’s in any other phase other than full. Focus particularly along the terminator line between light and dark, where features will cast long shadows that make them clearer. Choose binoculars with a magnification of 7 at a minimum. Though a magnification of 10 or 15 will provide more detail, you may need a tripod to steady them.

Under the gaze of a telescope, the Moon becomes too big to take in at once. Now you’ll see real mountains, and not just craters but the crater chains created when impact debris splashes around the main craters. You’ll see valleys, and the cracks in the Moon’s surface called rilles, formed when the lava that once filled a basin cooled and contracted. If this is your first time looking at the Moon through a telescope, you may feel the same wonder Galileo felt seeing that familiar orb in the sky transform into another world. Be sure to examine the Moon at many different phases and on different days. Parts of the Moon near the edge of the disk come into view at some times but not others, a wobbling phenomenon known as libration. Experienced observers can take advantage of favorable librations to see about 59 percent of the lunar surface.

Samhain Printable Coloring Pages

I am not sure how large these will print out. I have found the easiest way to print them is to save them to my computer than print them out individually.

A Thought for Today

What is the Reason for Rain on Samhain?

[Revisions made September 25,2021 so a couple of dates might be wrong. The dates for my father’s and mother’s births and deaths are correct]

I have often wonder why it almost always rains and is cold on Samhain. Where I live, in the central United States, it usually nice the day before and the day after but rarely the day of.

This morning my Guides gave me an answer to this question that seems so right I have no idea why I never thought of it. It rains on Samhain because the veil between our world and the Summerlands is very thin allowing what the Spirits of our family and friends are feeling about residing in the Summerlands to come into our world and our feelings to go easier into their world. It also makes it easier to converse with them in many different ways (coming soon a post explaining this more)

Just as we weep for loved ones lost because we miss the person they were in this lifetime they weep because they miss us also so. The rain we experience is in reality their tears. The cold is because they do not need heat to keep a incarnated body warm like we do in this world.

When honoring your ancestors this Samhain remember to take into account their feelings and try to explain yours to them. Communication is not just important when we some someone face to face it is important when dealing with those who have crossed over too.  Do not think the dialogue has to stop when Samhain is over, it may not be as easy to hear them but if they have something you really need to hear you will. Talk to them, ask them questions, tell them things. Just because they no longer have a physical body does not mean they are not interested in things going on in your life.

When helping those who passed away this past year cross into the Summerlands remind them of the happiness, rest, joy and love they will feel there instead of the cold uncertainty of roaming this world with no physical body. If you feel they are hanging on to something in this world or have unfinished business they want to take care before moving across the veil ask how you can help them let go or finish the unfinished business. It is important for us all to cross into the Summerlands after our physical bodies will no longer support life in this world, so we can rejuvenate and be reborn into our next life time.

Talking with my mom today and helping her to finish something she left undone (this I will not share as it was very personal between the two of us) after dreaming about her the other night (October 2015) for the first time since she passed (Born December 12, 1934 Died August 24, 2015) brought a calm to me I have not felt since the day before she passed. I knew the moment my mom passed as I felt a pull on both my heart and root charkas the two most connected thigs in our human body that connect us our to our parents and our children. She is happy and excited to be fully reunited with my dad, he refused rebirth until she and he could have some time together alone and with my eight siblings, who all passed away shortly before or after birth, in the Summerlands They both told me today that they will wait for me to join them in the future when it is my time to return to the Summerlands before they consider another lifetime in this world. Which made me feel very loved and special. It also makes me cry happy/sad tears every time I think about the sacrifice they choose to make for me. You see my dad (Born March 25, 1934) crossed over the veil exactly one month before my twelfth birthday on April 1, 1970. (Please NO April Fool’s jokes. Thank you)

I am sorry if this post seems to ramble some but I was typing as it came to me and had a couple of interruptions for trick-or-treater, all the kids in the neighborhood love to come to the Witch’s house because she gives out good treat if they do not trick her.

[Some of this paragraph maybe early while some of it could be what  you needed to read today] May your Samhain be blessed,. May your time with your ancestors be joyful. My your New Year be filled with everything you need, a warm home, loving family and friends, enough food to keep hunger at bay, clothing to keep you comfortable and even bring you a way to get a couple of things you just want.

Happy and Blessed Mabon Dear Sisters, Brothers, and Guests

Ancient Celebrations for Today – MABON

For more about Mabon and the Wheel of The Year

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

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

History Of Mabon

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

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

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

For more about Mabon

Date: September 20th – 23rd, depending on the year

Other Names: Atumn Equinox, 2nd Harvest

Pronunciations: MAY-bun, MAY-bon, MAH-boon, MAH-bawn

The Autumn Equinox divides the day and night equally, and we all take a moment to pay our respects to the impending dark. We also give thanks to the waning sunlight, as we store our harvest of this year’s crops. The Druids call this celebration, Mea’n Fo’mhair, and honor the The Green Man, the God of the Forest, by offering libations to trees. Offerings of ciders, wines, herbs and fertilizer are appropriate at this time. Wiccans celebrate the aging Goddess as she passes from Mother to Crone, and her consort the God as he prepares for death and re-birth.

Various other names for this Lesser Wiccan Sabbat are The Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Feast of Avalon, Equinozio di Autunno (Strega), Alben Elfed (Caledonii), or Cornucopia. The Teutonic name, Winter Finding, spans a period of time from the Sabbat to Oct. 15th, Winter’s Night, which is the Norse New Year.

At this festival it is appropriate to wear all of your finery and dine and celebrate in a lavish setting. It is the drawing to and of family as we prepare for the winding down of the year at Samhain. It is a time to finish old business as we ready for a period of rest, relaxation, and reflection.

Mabon is considered a time of the Mysteries. It is a time to honor Aging Deities and the Spirit World. Considered a time of balance, it is when we stop and relax and enjoy the fruits of our personal harvests, whether they be from toiling in our gardens, working at our jobs, raising our families, or just coping with the hussle-bussle of everyday life. May your Mabon be memorable, and your hearts and spirits be filled to overflowing!

Certain financial matters might come to a head today, which is classic for any Full Moon. You might have to make a choice about putting your own interests first or those of someone else. Fortunately, you can sweettalk anyone today. This is also a busy, upbeat day!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The Full Moon today is the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year; and it could create tension between you and partners or close friends. Patience will be your best ally. Be aware of the Moon Alert before making big money decisions (which you might do).

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Health issues or something to do with your job might create a tough choice for you today. Like being pulled in two directions. Fortunately, your ability to inspire kids and socialize with others is tops! People are ready to follow your lead and do your bidding.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Expect a few hiccups in the romance department today or anything to do with the entertainment world, sports and activities with kids because these are the areas that will feel the brunt of today’s Full Moon. Meanwhile, behind the scenes research will pay off! Check Moon Alert.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might find yourself in a tug-of-war between home and family versus your career and your reputation. (That’s because of the Full Moon pulling you in two directions.) Today you can’t ignore your career. It’s a marvellous day to schmooze with younger, creative people and groups.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be careful today because the Full Moon can trigger an accident-prone influence for you. Therefore, pay attention to everything you say and do. Keep your eyes open. Meanwhile, discussions with bosses and parents will go well. (Don’t volunteer for anything during the Moon Alert.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Certain financial issues related to your salary, cash flow or shared property (including inheritances) might come to a head today. Meanwhile, this is a good day to make travel plans but not during the Moon Alert. Yes, it’s a bit complicated today. And so it goes.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place today, which could create some tension with partners and close friends. Relax, this is nothing you can’t handle. Stay chill. Other discussions will go well.

Take time for yourself to be introspective.

Birthday Horoscope

Zodiac Sign Is Virgo

SEPTEMBER 20 birthday horoscope shows that you are a Virgo who is typically straightforward and honest. You are a doer rather than one who sits on the sidelines. You are always ready to take the initiative. And you never rest till you have completed the task on hand.

Some say that you are what people call an opportunist as you are always looking for ways to come up in the business world. This is not such a bad thing as everyone needs a mentor or someone they can come to for reliable advice.

The September 20 birthday personality has incredibly good judgment when it comes to decorating, choosing a restaurant, people and things of that nature. Also, you are practical and, you can handle most any situation that comes your way.

Raised to have respect for others, you are concerned with the quality of life that your friends and family have. Although you may be “hard” to them, they appreciate your firmness as it only benefits them in the long run.

 

The September 20 horoscope predicts that the biggest problem a person born on this day may have is admitting to mistakes. To grow, my dear Virgo, you need to learn from your errors instead of avoiding the fact that you could have been wrong. Until you can admit this, even if it’s just to yourself, you are doomed to repeat the same careless and silly blunders.

This Virgo birthday person is typically the bargain hunter. You know how to find a great deal and to manage your money. You are a person who is sure of your ability to fix things including relationships. The September 20 zodiac shows that spirituality usually plays an important part of who you are and actually, you may have an interest in holistic healthcare, the supernatural or the occult.

Those who are born on this September 20th birthday and are career and goal-oriented may go to school for a long time trying to stay up to date on the ever-changing laws and regulations relating to professional growth. Having been a student, you have little trouble living within your means as you know your ship will eventually come in.

As a Virgo who is in love, you are easy to become too attached or you may let your feelings or your emotions run amok. The 20 September astrology predicts that you can sometimes be obsessive-compulsive in matters relating to romance. When you do this, you tend to make people run away.

But you have to allow the person to get to you know you first. With any luck at all, you will find someone who is much like you, and he or she will understand and accept this birthday personality trait.

Too much, too soon can ruin a relationship that could be successful. Once you learn to calm down and take things one day at a time, you stand a chance of at least getting another date with that special someone and perhaps one day, you will have a lasting love relationship.

As time goes on, this September 20 zodiac person may find themselves in a business partnership with their lover. This would be ideal if given acceptance and loyalty. Typically, you desire and need an attraction outside of one that is merely physical. Your friends tell us that you have trust issues. With the number of people who call themselves “friends,” it is likely that you will find one who is not really on your side.

Naturally, you only trust those that you have as your close friends. If you are lucky enough to have a family, then this zodiac birthday person will not be found guilty of spoiling their kids. What your birthday says about you is that you will likely be stern parents who will teach their children to have superior ethics.

The September 20 birthday personality usually have good health practices. You work out, eat right and you could be a whiz in the kitchen. In addition to your physical health, you realize that a healthy mind is in order.

You could be interested in holistic health care or the supernatural. It is not uncommon for someone born today to incorporate his spirituality into a lifestyle that uses meditation as a form of relaxation and motivation.

Today the Moon will be in a Waxing Gibbous phase. 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 moon is then visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Visit the September 2021 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Waxing Gibbous Phase

The Waxing Gibbous on September 18 has an illumination of 93%. 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 September 18 the Moon is 12.27 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.

Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you want to rouse others to support a cause or rally for freedom from some kind of tyranny. (The tyranny of peanut butter sandwiches for lunch?) Possibly, a friend or a member of a group will do something that surprises you today or catches you off guard. Heads up!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might find yourself at odds with a parent, a boss or a police person at some point today. It could be something mild. It might be something rebellious. (Different details for different folks.) Nevertheless, you might have a reaction if someone tells you what to do. (Oops.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Travel plans might be delayed, changed or cancelled today. Alternatively, you might suddenly have to travel when you did not expect to do so. Someone from another culture or from far away might surprise you today. Political and religious situations will intrigue.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Keep an eye on issues related to shared property, taxes, debt and insurance matters as well as inheritances because something unexpected might catch you off guard. Someone might disagree with a previous agreement? This person might even be you.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your focus on money continues along with your desire to tweak your digs and entertain at home. (Leos are great hosts.) Tread carefully with partners and close friends today because someone close to you will surprise you. They might suggest something unusual. They might also thwart your plans?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today something unexpected with your pet, your health or your job might catch you off guard. Or perhaps you have some genius-like ideas about how to improve your health or your job? Fortunately, with the Sun in your sign, things will tend to go your way.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Social plans might change today or be cancelled. Or perhaps you’ll receive a surprise invitation? Be wise and do what you can to avoid sports accidents as well as accidents with your kids. This means slow down, take it easy and be vigilant.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a popular time for you, and with fair Venus in your sign, you are charming and diplomatic with everyone. Nevertheless, your home routine will change today. A small appliance might break down or a minor breakage could occur. Perhaps a family disagreement? Be smart and stay chill.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You continue to look fabulous to everyone because the Sun is casting you in a flattering spotlight. Make the most of this because this happens only once a year for four weeks. Meanwhile, be aware of everything you say and do because this is a mildly accident-prone day for you. Caution.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Travel and adventure totally appeal to you because you want a change of scenery and some excitement. Nevertheless, keep an eye on your money and your possessions today because something unexpected could occur. You might find money; you might lose money. Protect your possessions.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today the Moon is in your sign at odds with your ruler Uranus, which will make you feel restless, impulsive and rebellious. Guard against jumping to hasty conclusions. Nevertheless, enjoy feelings of independence and high spirits as you relate to everyone around you. “Tally ho!”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Remember that you need more sleep right now while the Sun is opposite your sign. Respect your need for more rest. Today is a bit restless for you, which is why you have that feeling that you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. Relax. You’ve got this

If Your Birthday Is Today

SEPTEMBER 17 birthday horoscope predicts that you are likely to want justice and equality for everyone. You may look at things differently from the rest of us. You may have a way of dealing with situations that could wind us making us laugh. You are both genuine and enthusiastic in your daily life.

A 17 September birthday personality will have some difficulty staying humble. Also enthusiastic, you are devoted to your cause and are in good company with your position and professional contacts.

Generally, when this Virgo birthday person has made up his or her mind about something, there is no stopping you although it may take you some time to achieve your goals. You maintain your status but can be unpredictable and eccentric.

Nonetheless, the September 17 horoscope shows that you are not afraid of tackling challenges with a steady and unswerving determination, of course, with a successful outcome.

When relaxed, those born on this day, 17th September, you can be a person who is a lot of fun to be around. It may take some time for this Virgin to get to this point but it is worth the effort.

The 17 September zodiac shows that you can be an impressive individual, but you hardly want the spotlight. Mostly, you’ll find that a Virgo born this day are independent and have self-restraint. You don’t need the validation of others to make you feel important.

In addition, you don’t throw around words that are attached to feelings without actually feeling that way. In order words, you’re not the person to tell someone what they wanted to hear as opposed to telling them the truth.

As a soldier, the Virgo born today has a genuine interest in life. Occasionally, you may look at life through a child’s eyes especially when you grow old. You have a way of remaining youthful, and your friends enjoy this about you.

Friends and family tell that you have been close for a long time. The September 17 birthday personality are extremely loyal and dedicated to someone who is true to them. Nonetheless, you typically have bad luck in love relationships. Acceptance is a beautiful thing, try it sometimes, and you may find yourself in good company and maybe even in love.

When it comes to having a family and some children of your own, you are likely a strict or authoritative parent. Perhaps, your parents were, or maybe you had a great responsibility as a child. Some factors tend to make a child more responsible as an adult.

This is a good September 17 astrology trait to have as a doting parent. You tend to give your children the things you may not have had as a child. Affectionate and dedicated are two of the keywords that describe this Virgo born this birthday. You do the best for the people you love.

If today is your birthday, you are typically healthy individuals. You take your daily vitamins but need an extra helping of calcium. You tend to be prone to bone disease or injury. If you would implement an exercise routine especially for this, you will see the results as a positive in the long run.

There are many positive side effects of exercising and not just weight loss. You tend to be a picky eater and not consume much anyway, so that is never a problem. What could be of concern is that you like being in charge.

The 17th September birthday zodiac predicts that you are normally quiet and supportive when the need arises. If you were born on this day, your chances of having financial success are above the other Virgos.

This zodiac birthday person has a knack for picking the right investment opportunities as you mostly turn a profit. Therefore, financial freedom is very likely if you use the money wisely and not for boastful or superficial purposes. Additionally, you have the patience to wait for the right opportunity to make a move or to make a trade.

Daily Horoscope

Moon Alert

After 11:30 AM EDT today (8:30 AM PDT) there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you might drum up help from others to make improvements to where you work. You might introduce reforms and better ways of doing things. Very likely, these improvements will involve cost-cutting, recycling and repurposing. You might improve your health as well!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Romance will be intense today. Actually, many experiences will be powerful, including your interactions with your kids. Don’t be too bossy. Let’s face it: You have definite ideas of how to “change things for the better.” (Oops.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will have a powerful discussion with a family member today, perhaps a parent. No doubt there will be a consensus about what needs to be done – namely, you want to make improvements at home. Get rid of junk. Tidy up. Recycle and turf what you don’t need. Now.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re convincing today, which makes this a strong day for those of you in sales, marketing, teaching, acting and writing. Oh yes, you will use your words with care and they will slice through issues like a hot knife cutting through butter.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you might see new uses for something that you already own. (Could that old Volkswagen be a floor lamp?) This is because you’re in a resourceful frame of mind, which is why you see new applications and uses for things. You might also see new ways to earn money?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is an excellent day to take a realistic look in the mirror and ask yourself what you can do to improve the impression you create on your world. Ideas? We can always improve our appearance in some way. Get creative. After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a fabulous day to do research because you have a penetrating mind plus the energy and endurance to keep looking for what you want to find. You’ll be like a dog with a bone. Therefore, focus on finding answers to questions and solutions to old problems.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

A discussion with someone could be important today because they might help you discover what motivates yourself. Perhaps you will discuss your hopes and dreams for the future with them? You might look within yourself to discover what you are really seeking in life?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your interactions with parents, bosses and the police will be intense and powerful today. Do not cross anyone with authority. (It won’t be pretty.) Take it easy. Be reasonable. Stay calm and never underestimate the power of courtesy. Ironically, you can make a great impression on someone.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a good day to get stuff done, especially if it relates to higher education (finishing an important paper), legal matters or medicine. In discussions about politics, religion and racial issues, you will be opinionated and forceful! No question.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your ability to find discrepancies and problems in financial matters related to shared property, taxes, debt and inheritances is uncanny today. You will quickly spot errors, and furthermore, you will probably see better ways of doing things. You might see a better way of sharing?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A conversation with a partners or close friend will be intense and powerful today. Obviously, you will make quite an impact! The thing is you are motivated; and you intend to go after what you want because you want to get something done. Others feel the same way.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Alexis Bledel (1981) shares your birthday today. You are naturally enthusiastic and exuberant about life. You are also courageous and honest in everything you do. You are very loyal and steadfast. Security is important to you. This is a very social year for you and your zest for life is strong! Of course, you will work hard, but it’s also time to relax and have some fun!

Birthday Horoscope Zodiac Sign Is Virgo

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope

SEPTEMBER 16 birthday horoscope predicts that tend to go beyond the limit. As the zodiac sign for this birthday is Virgo, you can’t give up, or you find it extremely difficult to give in to defeat. You need to know what’s beyond the blue sky and have the patience and ability to find out. Patience is your virtue. Just do not become lax and take things for granted.

It’s not by trial and error, it is a calculated effort, and you are usually successful in your quests. However, there are some places this Virgin should not go. Everything is not for your discovery. As you demand respect, so do others. Be careful on those paths you cross and or crossover.

 

As far as your career aspirations, the September 16th birthday personality will make dreams profitable and gratifying. Although money is not your driving force, you like what it affords for you and your family. You like the awards that adorn your walls and shelves more than anything.

The September 16 astrology warns that you have a vulnerability to bad luck and misunderstandings. Be that as it may, you are a spiritual being and a religious person. As a child, your parents probably made you go to church, but as an adult, you have kept those values and beliefs. As a result, you have certain expectations of others.

There are times when everyone needs to be reminded that they have accomplished something and Virgos are no different. Bringing the bacon home is necessary but contributing to society often brings you personal happiness. This Virgo birthday person can be found in social professions as a therapist or social worker.

Your family says that you love to learn, but you hate change. The September 16 birthday personality needs security and stability. However, you only learn because things change. Don’t you see the irony of it all? If things did not change, we would not have the technology we have today that empowers you.

If you were to find a lover who has the same values and principles as the Virgo born on this day, everyone would be thrilled. A commitment with a similar person will more than compensate for lack of perfection. Usually, you’ll find this person to be sensitive but annoying.

Additionally, your friends say that you are likely a dreamer, but you make some dreams a reality. Other times, you are highly disappointed in the lack of perfection in others. The September 16 horoscope shows that you take your work seriously, and expect others to give the same amount of respect. You will expect everything done to perfection.

You see, when you blow things out of proportion, you have this way of making everybody sick of listening to and talking about it over and over again. Chill out, Virgo. Stop over analyzing every single thing. You’re going to give yourself a heart attack or worse, grey hairs. I’m laughing out loud, but you do tend to take the fun out of things by doing this.

The September 16 horoscope shows that you’re a go-getter. Typically, you expect perfection and are disappointed when things are changed. However a dreamer, you tend to make them a part of your life.

By doing so, you may worry too much. This could be unhealthy, but this zodiac birthday Virgo has a way of making light of serious situations by laughter. Someone like you would understand this and would make a perfect partner for you who are born today.

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 6:30 AM to 8 AM EDT today (3:30 AM to 5 AM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You make a great impression on parents, bosses and important people today. This could be handy in case you want to make your pitch, or do something to advance your cause, or you need approval or permission. If so, this is the day.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is an excellent day for you because the Moon is in your fellow Earth sign, which is supportive to you. Good day to make travel plans or explore avenues in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. In important discussions, people will listen to you.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a strong money day for you, especially if you’re negotiating details about shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and insurance matters. Others, especially coworkers, are ready to listen to you.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

A conversation with a partner or close friend will go well today. Nevertheless, it will be in your best interests to go more than halfway when dealing with others because the Moon is opposite your sign. (In two weeks, when the Moon is in your sign, you’ll be in charge.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your efforts to get better organized will be successful today. You can do something to improve your home or help a family member. This will please you because you are in the mood to redecorate or do something to make where you live look more attractive.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a playful, creative day! Accept invitations to party or socialize with others. Enjoy sports events and fun activities with kids. Grab every chance to express your own creative talents. This is a very good day for those who write, act or teach.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The stars are giving you mixed messages today. Mars in your sign makes you want to get out there and be proactive! It’s a good time for physical exercise. However, both the Sun and the Moon want you to hide and relax at home. It’s your call.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You have a strong desire to enlighten others about something today. You something to say. You want to talk to siblings, relatives and neighbours about something that’s important to you. Fortunately, with fair Venus in your sign, people will listen to you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a good money day for you. You might attract money to you. You might also have excellent moneymaking ideas. Many of you might buy something beautiful for yourself or a loved one. Interactions with younger people will be busy and competitive.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today the Moon is in your sign, which means you’ll run the meeting. You find it easy to be diplomatic and charming with others because the Moon is dancing with fair Venus. This is a lovely day to interact with friends and groups, especially people who are creative and artistic.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You will feel happy to hibernate today and withdraw from the busyness around you because you need to catch your breath or take a breather. (Whew!) Possibly, a boss, parent or someone in authority will give you the nod so that you can do this. (Every little bit helps.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A conversation with a female friend or acquaintance might be important for you today. They might give you tips about redecorating or how to smooth a troubled relationship or how to make something better, especially how to make it look more attractive. Ideas?

If Your Birthday Is Today

Birthday Horoscope

Zodiac Sign Is Virgo

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope

SEPTEMBER 14 birthday horoscope predicts that you could be the scrupulous Virgo who is also focused and loyal. You are likely to dislike boundaries and foolishness. Most Virgos born today are beautiful people who are fascinated by people that make them laugh. You love having a good time.

Above all, you want to be “judged” on your performance and knowledge as a professional. You have a sense of purpose that some people just don’t understand.

Don’t go to this Virgo birthday person unprepared and with excuses. It’s not something they will appreciate as you have wasted their time. You are loyal, and this measure should not be ignored. With this 14th September birthday personality trait, you look for “perfection” in a person or situation.

Perhaps acceptance is something you should practice, Virgo. Those with a birthday today are easily agitated. You worry too much about the future and have little patience.

The September 14 horoscope predicts that being affectionate and sentimental, you tend to be artistic additionally. You exemplify a person who could want more than what you need.

In other words, you could be materialistic and greedy. You want things now rather than later, and this could become a problem. When this combination interferes with business, then you can be something to deal with. Your hard ways are not one of your strong suits.

However, you are a hard worker with a soft spot for helping people. This, you feel, is your way of giving back to the community and society. I suppose this would make your otherwise difficult ways less discerning.

The September 14 zodiac shows that you are friendly and influential people that have the support of your associates. You are likely to seek higher ground as you love to travel to faraway places.

Perhaps you will be involved in religion or education at a university level. Maybe you will go back to school and earn an additional degree to place on the crowded “I Love Me” wall. Your other interest may lie in legal affairs and may extend to foreign affairs.

The September 14 astrology also predicts that you seem to have a balance between your professional and private life. Things have leveled out to be quite equal as you find your work very rewarding and this is something hard to accomplish.

Those born on September 14 can be popular individuals. You are accustomed to having a few friends who are positive and successful. This Virgo birthday person likes to surround the environment with like-minded individuals as this can serve to inspire you.

Everyone seems to like your attitude, as you know how to handle yourself emotionally. This puts less stress on you and gives you a chance to help maintain a “status quo.” You are not a sentimental fool.

Today’s birthday horoscope shows that you are a fitness nut. You exude good health, so I cannot figure out why you are constantly are looking to improve. You alternate your muscle groups to get the maximum benefit. If you are a vegan, you should eat foods that are high in protein like fish and nuts. Be careful not that you are not overextending yourself as too much can prove to have adverse effects.

Let’s talk about your career. It’s likely that making a choice could be a difficult experience for the September 14 zodiac birthday person, as you may have a few good options. With your natural abilities to teach, you would do well in educational occupations. You have the analytical mind to come up with the right decision for yourself. Besides, you are creative and perhaps, musically inclined.

On the other hand, you could go beyond the typical or the normal limits of having a 9-5. The September 14 birthday personality can make dedicated and talented entrepreneurs. You take pleasure in knowing that you have the freedom to come and go as you please.

The September 14 astrology shows that you are an individual who will accept nothing but perfection. You want to do your very best and expect nothing less from those you are around. However, you feel it’s not too much to ask. This Virgo’s insecurity only surfaces due to this expectation of perfection.

There’s no need to doubt yourself as you are a person so unlimited potential. You strive to have a balance between your home and your work. As a Virgo who works out, you look great, but you could be overdoing it. Even the world was not made in a day, remember that.
