The Hermit – Major Arcana

Keywords: inner wisdom, solitude, withdrawal, quiet, teacher or guru, research, seeker

Attributes: Virgo (Earth)

General meaning:  In order to get the answers you seek, it may be time to turn inward.  Shut out your distractions so that you may discover the wisdom within.  Answers are rarely found in another – everything you need is within yourself.  This card can also indicate a need to withdraw from circumstances in order to get a better perspective.  Sometimes a player needs a break from the grind.

Reversed:  Repeating your past mistakes.  Not learning.  This can indicate a lack of wisdom. Doing things without thinking of the consequences.  It can also indicate the extremes of solitude – like being some sort of creepy recluse.  Don’t lock yourself away.  It gets mighty lonely on that mountain top.

Affirmation: “Everything I need is within me.  I don’t need to look outside myself for answers.”

Theme song: 

Rune

Is

Sound: “i”, “e”, “j” as in the “y” in “year”
Stands for: Ice
Casting meaning: Ice is unchanging and restricting and like ice this rune embodies the resistant power that tries to prevent change.

Witch’s Rune

Rings

Think: Unbreakable bonds are between these rings.
Remember: Positive. You can’t do it alone, so form the right and lasting alliances. There may be a business partnership, a marriage, or other team formation. Seek out a partnership if none exists in the matter at hand.

 

Ogham

Duir or Dair

Pronunciation – Doo-r

Tree Association – oak

Meaning – Strength, security, resilience, endurance, wisdom, sacred spaces, leadership, and kindness. All your hard work and education have paid off. Like the oak, you stand tall and mighty. You are in a beneficial situation (family, work, financially, creative, relationship, etc.), and this circumstance will stay that way for quite a while. Trust yourself! Also, oak represents the intense energy and power of storms and wind. Symbolic of the endurance and stamina you possess that allows you to flourish and thrive.

If reversed – cowardly, uncertain, or frail. You have not been acting kindly or fairly in your leadership role. It’s ok to lack knowledge and facts, but do not make it a common practice.

Inscription and Magical Uses – Inscribe this ogham on an acorn for good luck in job interviews, courage, or pursuing justice. Duir is an excellent ogham inscription to keep at work. Helpful when working when storms, lightning, or the element air. It can also be used in healing or for those who need reminders of their resilience, profound strength, and tenacity.

Folklore – Oak trees are considered sacred guardians. They are an excellent place to meditate beneath or seek strength and assurance. If you catch an oak leaf before it touches the ground, you will have excellent health throughout the cold winter months. Representative of the Oak King, who marks the beginning and climax of the Summer Solstice.

I Ching

 Hexagram Twenty-Three/23

Name: Po.

Keyphrase: Splitting apart.

Formed By The Trigrams: Mountain over Earth.

General: Before beginning a new enterprise you should wait for the collapse of the old one.

Love: Your current relationship or an issue within your relationship should be abandoned.

Business: Your current business direction has become difficult and it should be revised at the very least, or abandoned if revision is not possible.

Personal: Serious thought should be given to backing away from any situations that are troublesome.

Overview: Po is a reminder that no matter how strongly something was originally built it will eventually disintegrate with time. Once the “foundations” have been undermined it is only tenuously held together. Such a situation is no longer worth trying to save. Although it is always difficult to give up on a situation do not waste time on formulating a new plan and direction. The disaster implied by Po is not the situation itself but the failure to react to it and regain your balance and direction.

Numerology

From worldnumerology.com

It loves people and is a freedom fighter, a promoter of causes, but also a quitter, and often unrealistic. More creative than other 5s.

Butterfly

The butterfly is one of the most emblematic totem animals symbolizing personal transformation. If you see the butterfly as your totem or spirit animal, pay attention to the areas in your life or personality that are in need of profound change or transformation. Perhaps, this animal totem guides you to be sensitive to your personal cycles of expansion and growth, as well as the beauty of life’s continuous unfolding. An important message carried by the spirit of the butterfly is about the ability to go through important changes with grace and lightness.

Butterfly Symbolism

What is the meaning of the butterfly? This animal totem is primarily associated with symbolism of change and transformation.

Powerful transformation, metamorphosis in your life, personality

Moving through different life cycles

Renewal, rebirth

Lightness of being, playfulness

Elevation from earthly matters, tuning into emotional or spiritual

The world of the soul, the psyche

A secondary meaning of the butterfly is about finding joy in life and lightness of being.

Spell for Today -Moonstone Travel

When dealing with a weekly spell guide, Mondays are thought to be the logical day for money, love, time and meditation spells. Since Mondays are thought to be the start of the work week, it gives plenty of time for a Monday spell to gain strength throughout the rest of the week.

Moonstone Travel Spell

This spell will call on Meness, the patron moon god of travelers. We met Meness earlier, in the meditation for Monday. I suggest setting up this spell in the evening. Find a spot that faces east or that is illuminated by moonlight. Or try setting this up under the moon, in the garden, or on the porch or your outside deck. Get some atmosphere going! Try using a scented candle, such as jasmine or gardenia, to coordinate the fragrance with the moon’s energies.

Gather the following items:

• A photo of your destination, your travel itinerary, or your airline tickets

• 4 small tumbled moonstones

• A scented white votive candle and holder

• A lighter or matches

Set up this spell on a safe, flat surface. Light the candle and place it in the holder. Place your paperwork/tickets or itinerary to one side of the candle. Arrange the four stones in a circle around the holder. Place your hands on the travel paperwork, and ground and center. Then repeat the following spell three times:

Meness, patron of travelers, watch over me

Whether I travel in the air, on land, or sea

Like a talisman in my pocket a stone will I tuck

Moonstones do encourage a safe journey and bring good luck. Take one of the stones and keep it in your pocket while you travel. You may close the spell by saying:

For the good of all, with harm to none

By the moon and stars, this spell is done.

Gather up your papers and tuck them away for your trip. Allow the candle to burn out on its own. If you performed this outside, then move your candle and the remaining stones indoors to let the candle safely finish burning. Never leave your candle unattended.

Numerology

Zero

Number 0 (zero) in numerology conceals a deep sacred secret about the spiritual root of material nature. Being in its essence an anti-number, zero, nevertheless, takes the first place in the number series unlike mathematics. This order indicates the hidden potential of the creation of all subsequent objects and phenomena.

Aleister Crowley described these metaphysical processes with a mathematical universal formula. It says: 0 = 2.

0 is Nuit (not I) – a great extension.

2 is Hadit – a great contraction.

Number zero is an abstract source of all numbers in numerology; practically, it symbolizes the spiritual root cause of existing being.

The sacred value of number 0 is associated with its image in the form of a divine sphere. The perfect form of a circle denotes the concept of infinity and eternity, which has neither a beginning nor an end.

The 161 Laws of Wicca

by Gerald B. Gardner

1. The Law was made and ordained of old.

 

2. The Law was made for the Wicca, to advise and help in their troubles.

 

3. The Wicca should give due worship to the gods and obey their will, which they ordain, for it was made for the good of Wicca as the worship of the Wicca is good for the gods. For the gods love the brethren of Wicca.

 

4. As a man loveth a woman by mastering her.

 

5. So the Wicca should love the gods by being mastered by them.

 

6. And it is necessary that the Circle, which is the temple of the gods, should be truly cast and purified. And that it may be a fit place for the gods to enter.

 

7. And the Wicca shall be properly prepared and purified to enter into the presence of the gods.

 

8. With love and worship in their hearts, they shall raise power from their bodies to give power to the gods.

 

9. As has been taught of old.

 

10. For in this way only may men have communion with the gods, for the gods cannot help man without the help of man.

 

11. And the High Priestess shall rule her coven as the representative of the God.

 

12. And the High Priest shall support her as the representative of the God.

 

13. And the High Priestess shall choose whom she will, be he of sufficient rank, to be her High Priest.

 

14. For as the god himself kissed her feet in the fivefold salute, laying his power at the feet of the Goddess because of her youth and beauty, her sweetness and kindness, her wisdom and justice, her humility and generosity,

 

15. So he resigned all his power to her.

 

16. But the High Priestess should ever mind that all power comes from him.

 

17. It is only lent, to be used wisely and justly.

 

18. And the greatest virtue of a High priestess be that she recognize that youth is necessary to the representative of the goddess.

 

19. So she will gracefully retire in favor of a younger woman should the Coven so decide in council.

 

20. For a true High Priestess realizes that gracefully surrendering pride of place is one of the greatest virtues.

 

21. And that thereby she will return to that pride of place in another life, with greater power and beauty.

 

22. In the old days, when witchdom extended far, we were free and worshipped in all the greater temples.

 

23. But in these unhappy times we must celebrate our sacred mysteries in secret.

 

24. So be it ordained, that none but the Wicca may see our mysteries, for our enemies are many and torture loosens the tongue of man.

 

25. So be it ordained that no Coven shall know where the next Coven bide.

 

26. Or who its members be, save only the Priest and Priestess and messenger.

 

27. And there shall be no communication between them, save by the messenger of the gods, or the summoner.

 

28. And only if it be safe may the covens meet in some safe place for the great festivals.

 

29. And while there, none shall say whence they came nor give their true names.

 

30. To this end, any that are tortured in their agony may not tell if they do not know.

31. So be it ordained that no one shall tell anyone not of the craft who be of the Wicca, nor give any names or where they bide, or in any way tell anything which can betray any of us to our foes.

 

32. Nor may he tell where the Covendom be.

 

33. Or the Covenstead.

 

34. Or where the meetings be.

 

35. And if any break these laws, even under torture, THE CURSE OF THE GODDESS SHALL BE UPON THEM, so they may never be reborn on earth and may remain where they belong, in the hell of the Christians.

 

36. Let each High Priestess govern her Coven with justice and love, with the help and advice of the High Priest and the Elders, always heeding the advice of the messenger of the gods if he cometh.

 

37. She will heed all complains of all Brothers and strive to settle all differences among them.

 

38. But it must be recognized that there will always be people who will ever strive to force others to do as they will.

 

39. These are not necessarily evil.

 

40. And they oft have good ideas and such ideas should be talked over in council.

 

41. But if they will not agree with their Brothers, or if they say,

 

42. “I will not work under this High Priestess,”

 

43. It hath ever been the Old Law to be convenient to the Brethren and to avoid disputes.

 

44. Any of the third may claim to found a new Coven because they live over a league away from the Covenstead, or that they are about to do so.

 

45. Anyone living within the Covendom and wishing to form a new Coven shall tell the Elders of their intention and on the instant avoid their dwelling and remove to the new Covendom.

 

46. Members of the old Coven may join the new one when it is formed. But if they do, they must utterly avoid the old Coven.

 

47. The Elders of the new and the old Covens should meet in peace and brotherly love to decide the new boundaries.

 

48. Those of the craft who dwell outside both Covendoms may join either but not both.

 

49. Though all may, if the Elders agree, meet for the great festivals if it be truly in peace and brotherly love,

 

50. But splitting the Coven off means strife, so for this reason these Laws were made of old and may the CURSE OF THE GODDESS BE ON ANY WHO DISREGARD THEM. So be it ordained.

 

51. If you would keep a book, let it be in your own hand of write. Let brothers and sisters copy what they will, but never let the book out of your hands, and never keep the writings of another.

 

52. For if it be found in their hand of write, they may be taken and arraigned. Let each guard his own writings and destroy them

 

53. whenever danger threatens.

 

54. Learn as much as you may by heart and, when danger is past, rewrite your book, an it be safe.

 

55. For this reason, if any die, destroy their book if they have not been able to.

 

56. For, if it be found, `tis clear proof against them.

 

57. And our oppressors know well “Ye may not be a witch alone”.

 

58. So all their kin and friends be in danger of torture.

 

59. So destroy everything not necessary.

 

60. If your book be found on you, `tis clear proof against you alone, you may be arraigned.

 

61. Keep all thoughts of the craft from your mind.

 

62. If the torture be too great to bear, say, “I will confess. I can’t bear this torture. What do you want me to say?”

 

63. If they try to make you speak of the Brotherhood, do not.

 

64. But if they try to make you speak of impossibilities such as flying through the air, consorting with a Christian devil or sacrificing children, or eating men’s flesh.

 

65. To obtain relief from torture say, “I had an evil dream I was beside myself, I was crazed.”

 

66. Not all magistrates are bad, if there be an excuse, they may show mercy.

 

67. If you have confessed ought, deny it afterwards, say you babbled under torture, and say you knew not what you said.

 

68. If you are condemned, fear not.

 

69. The Brotherhood is powerful and will help you to escape if you stand steadfast, but if you betray ought there is no hope for you in this life or in that to come.

 

70. Be sure, if steadfast you go to the pyre, drugs will reach you, you will feel naught you go to death and what lies beyond, the ecstasy of the goddess.

 

71. To avoid discovery, let the working tools be as ordinary things that any may have in their houses.

 

72. Let the pentacles be of wax so that they may be broken at once or melted.

 

73. Have no sword unless your rank allows it.

 

74. Have no names or signs on anything.

 

75. Write the names and signs on them in ink before consecrating them and wash it off immediately afterwards.

 

76. Let the color of the hilts tell which is which.

 

77. Do not engrave them unless they cause discovery.

 

78. Ever remember ye are the hidden children of the Goddess so never do anything to disgrace them or Her.

 

79. Never boast, never threaten, never say you would wish ill of anyone.

 

80. If any person not in the Circle, speak of the craft, say, “Speak not to me of such, it frightens me, `tis evil luck to speak of it.

 

81. For this reason, the Christians have their spies everywhere. These speak as if they were well affected to us, as if they wouldn’t come into our meetings, saying, “My mother used to worship the Old Ones. I would I could go myself.”

 

82. To such as these ever deny all knowledge.

 

83. But to others, ever say, “Tis foolish men talk of witches flying through the air. To do so they must be as light as thistledown. And men say that witches all be blear eyed old crones, so what pleasure can there be at a witch meeting such as folks talk on?”

 

84. And say, “Many wise men now say there be no such creatures.”

 

85. Ever make it a jest, and in some future time perhaps, the persecution may die and we may worship our gods in safety again.

 

86. Let us all pray for that happy day.

 

87. May the blessings of the Goddess and God be on all who keep these Laws which are ordained.

 

88. If the craft hath any appendage, let all guard it and witchcraft in the land,” because our oppressors of old make it heresy not to believe in witchcraft and so a crime to deny it which thereby puts you under suspicion.

 

89. And let all justly guard all monies of the craft.

 

90. And if any Brother truly wrought it, `tis right they have their pay, an it be just. An this be not taking money for the art, but for good and honest work.

 

91. And even the Christians say, “The laborer is worthy of his hire,” but if any Brother work willingly for the good of the craft without pay, `tis but to their greater honor. So be it ordained.

 

92. If there be any dispute or quarrel among the Brethren, the High Priestess shall straightly convene the Elders and enquire into the matter, and they shall hear both sides, first alone and then together.

 

93. And they shall decide justly, not favoring one side or the other.

 

94. Ever recognizing there be people who can never agree to work under others.

 

95. But at the same time; there be some people who cannot rule justly.

 

96. To those who ever must be chief, there is one answer.

 

97. Void the Coven or seek another one, or make a Coven of your own, taking with you those who will go.

 

98. To those who cannot, justly the answer be, “Those who cannot bear your rule will leave with you.

 

99. For none may come to meetings with those whom they are at variance.

 

100. So, an either cannot agree, get hence, for the craft must ever survive, so be it ordained.

 

101. In the olden days when we had power, we could use the art against any who ill-treated the Brotherhood. But in these evil days we must not do so. For our enemies have devised a burning pit of everlasting fire into which they say their god casteth all the people who worship him, except it be the very few who are released by their priests, spells and masses. And this be chiefly by giving monies and rich gifts to receive his favor for their great god is ever in need of money.

 

102. But as our gods need our aid to make fertility for man and crops, so is the god of the Christians ever in need of man’s help to search out and destroy us. Their priests ever tell them that any who get our help are damned to this hell forever, so men be mad with the terror of it.

 

103. But they make men believe that they may escape this hell if they give victims to the tormentors. So for this reason all be forever spying, thinking, “And I can catch but one of these Wicca, I will escape from this fiery pit.”

 

104. So for this reason we have our hides, and men searching long and Doth finding, say, “There be none, or if there be, they be in a far country.”

 

105. But when one of our oppressors die, or even be sick, ever is the cry, “This be witches’ malice”, and the hunt is up again. And though they slay ten of their own to one of ours, still they care not. They have countless thousands.

 

106. While we are few indeed. So be it ordained.

 

107. That none shall use the art in any way to do ill to any.

108. However much they injure us, harm none. And now times many believe we exist not.

 

109. That this Law shall ever continue to help us in our plight, no one, however great an injury or injustice they receive, may use the art in any way to do ill, or harm any. But they may, after great consultations with all, use the art to restrain Christians from harming us Brothers, but only to constrain them and never to punish.

 

110. To this end men will say, “Such a one is a mighty searcher out, and a persecutor of old women when they desire to be witches, and none hath done him harm, so it be proof that they cannot or more truly there be none.

 

111. For all know full well that so many folk have died because someone had a grudge against them, or were persecuted because they had money or goods to seize, or because they had none to bribe the searchers. And many have died because they were scolding old women. So much that men now say that only old women are witches.

 

112. And this be to our advantage and turns suspicion away from us.

 

113. In England and Scotland `tis now many a year since a witch hath died the death. But any misuse of the power might raise the persecution again.

 

114. So never break this Law, however much you are tempted, and never consent to its being broken in the least.

 

115. If you know it is being broken, you must work strongly against it.

 

116. And any High Priestess or High Priest who consents to its breach must immediately be deposed for tis the blood of the Brethren they endanger.

 

117. Do good, an it be safe, and only if it be safe.

 

118. And strictly keep to the Old Law.

 

119. Never accept money for the work of the art, for money ever smeareth the taker. “Tis sorcerers and conjurors and the priests of the Christians who ever accept money for the use of their arts. And they sell pardons to let men escape from their sins.

 

120. Be not as these. If you accept no money, you will be free from temptation to use the art for evil causes.

 

121. All may use the art for their own advantage or for the advantage of the craft only if you are sure you harm none.

 

122. But ever let the Coven debate this at length. Only if all are satisfied that none may be harmed, may the art be used.

 

123. If it is not possible to achieve your ends one way, perchance the aim may be achieved by acting in a different way so as to harm none. MAY THE CURSE OF THE GODDESS BE UPON ANY WHO BREAKETH THIS LAW. So be it ordained.

 

124. “Tis judged lawful if ever any of the craft need a house or land and none will sell, to incline the owner’s mind so as to be willing to sell, provided it harmeth him not in any way and the full price is paid without haggling.

 

125. Never bargain or cheapen anything whilst you buy by the art. So be it ordained.

 

126. Tis the Old Law and the most important of all laws, that no one may do anything which will endanger any of the craft, or bring them into contact with the law of the land or any persecutors

 

127. In any dispute between the Brethren, no one may invoke any laws but those of the craft.

 

128. Or any tribunal but that of the Priestess, Priest and Elders.

 

129. It is not forbidden to say as Christians do, “There be witchcraft in the land,” because our oppressors of old make it heresy not to believe in witchcraft and so a crime to deny it which thereby puts you under suspicion.

 

130. But ever say, “I know not of it here, perchance there may be but afar off, I know not where.”

 

131. But ever speak of them as old crones, consorting with the devil and riding through the air.

 

132. And ever say, “But how may many ride the air if they be not as light as thistledown.”

 

133. But the curse of the Goddess be on any who cast suspicion on any of the Brotherhood.

 

134. Or who speak of any real meeting place or where they bide.

 

135. Let the craft keep books with the names of all herbs which are good, and all cures so all may learn.

 

136. But keep another book with all Bills and Apices and let only the Elders and other trustworthy people have this knowledge. So be it ordained.

 

137. And may the blessings of the gods be on all who keep these Laws, and the curses of both the God and the Goddess be on all who break them.

 

138. Remember the art is the secret of the gods and may only be used in earnest and never for show or vain glory.

 

139. Magicians and Christians may taunt us saying, “You have no power, show us your power. Do magic before our eyes, then only will we believe,” seeking to cause us to betray the art before them.

 

140. Heed them not, for the art is holy and may only be used in need, and the curse of the gods be on any who break this Law.

 

141. It ever be the way with women and with men also, that they ever seek new love.

 

142. Nor should we reprove them for this.

 

143. But it may be found a disadvantage to the craft.

 

144. And so many a time it has happened that a High Priest or a High Priestess, impelled by love, hath departed with their love. That is, they have left the Coven.

 

145. Now if the High Priestess wishes to resign, she may do so in full Coven.

 

146. And this resignation is valid.

 

147. But if they should run off without resigning, who may know if they may not return in a few months?

 

148. So the Law is, if a High Priestess leaves her Coven, she be taken back and all be as before.

149. Meanwhile, if she has a deputy, that deputy shall act as High Priestess for as long as the High Priestess is away.

 

150. If she returns not at the end of a year and a day, then shall the Coven elect a new High Priestess.

 

151. Unless there is a good reason to the contrary.

 

152. The person who has done the work shall reap the benefit of the reward, maiden and deputy of the High Priestess.

 

153. It had been found that practicing the art doth cause a fondness between aspirant and tutor, and it is the cause of better results if this be so.

 

154. And if for any reason this be undesirable, it can easily be avoided by both persons from the outset firmly resolving in their minds to be as brother and sister, or parent and child.

 

155. And it is for this reason that a man may be taught only by a woman and a woman by a man, and women and women should not attempt these practices together. So be it ordained.

 

156. Order and discipline must be kept.

 

157. A High Priestess or a High Priest may, and should, punish all faults.

 

158. To this end all fault and his sentence pronounced.

 

159. All properly prepared, the culprit should be told his fault, and his sentence pronounced.

 

160. Punishment should be followed by something amusing.

 

161. The culprit must acknowledge the justice of the punishment by kissing the hand on receiving sentence and again thanking for punishment received. So be it ordained.

OTHILA

Separation, Withdrawal, Heir

This is the time of your ways separating. Old skin must shed, outdated relationships need to be given up.  If this rune appears, a “molting” is necessary.  Othila is a rune of the radical separation.  Obedience and probably also withdrawal is necessary – to know, when and how you need to withdraw, and to actually have the determination, to do it.  Property is also an aspect of this rune, because Othila is the rune of the acquisition and profit.  The profit however, that “heir”, which you receive, could likely be made of something that you need to abandon. This process can be especially hard if that what needs to be abandoned is something of your cultural heir and backing.  Not ‘rigidly’ but rather like a ‘river’ is the correct attitude to have.  And yet – you have to wait that the universe begins to act.

Ogham

From druidogham. wordpress.com

Mor

Change, shift, the sea, maps, realm of the subconscious, great undercurrents

Tree: Witch hazel (Hamamelis spp.)

Letter: X

“Sea change” is a term for profound or holistic change. Change is the foundation of existence. The interplay of opposing forces creates and destroys ad infinitum. Mor bookends the concept of change introduced by the first Ogham, Beith. The intention that sowed an action reaped a habit, the habit reaped a character, and the character reaped a destiny. The new track in space has been laid and change is inevitable.

When you draw Mor, look for the changes in and around you. These are not necessarily good or bad. Often, drawing this Ogham can mean something as basic as “oh look, the season of Spring is arriving”. Mor doesn’t have to indicate any kind of drama, although it could. Mor calls out to you to look at overarching influences, new factors or people, and to examine the permutations and possibilities of how they affect the environment.

Mor is a bird’s eye view of opposing forces in our lives rather than being upswept by the random forces that weave in and out of our daily existences. Understanding your own subconscious gives you the ability to calmly deal with challenges that come your way. The work you do on understanding yourself is the sails you build on your boat in the great sea of life. You still need to figure out which way the wind is blowing, of course, but knowing a thing or two about your own position, your tendencies, desires, faults, and strengths will give you the power you need to dodge rocks and survive storms.

Questions when you draw Mor: …

Four

In numerology, the 4 is the number of strength and stability.

The Numerology Meaning of the Number 4: THE SALT OF THE EARTH

The chief characteristics of the number 4 are dependability, productivity, punctuality, and obedience. It is trustworthy, patient, conventional, and traditional.

People with prominent 4’s can seem dispassionate and solitary, preferring to toil in quiet obscurity. They work steadily and are extremely persistent, finding deep satisfaction in their accomplishments.

The 4 favors results over financial reward and public recognition. They are humble, often dress conservatively, and don’t clash with their surroundings.

Ω

The 4 does not like to draw attention but will fight tooth and nail if you try to muscle in on their territory.

They believe in effort and control and are goal-oriented, but their goals are often simple and down to earth. The 4 is not a visionary but notices every detail. They are capable, proficient, and they don’t cut corners – the perfect employee.

Looking at the shape of the number 4. you will notice the hard angles are a symbolic representation of this rather straight-edged workaholic – less creative or artistic, but excellent at working with their hands.

Many artisans and skilled laborers have the 4 prominent in their charts. The 4 works hard and is a good provider but demands discipline and loyalty. They do not do well in chaotic environments and are prone to panic attacks if it appears they don’t have things well under control.

The 4 does not like to make waves, but values moral convictions and doesn’t back down when convinced they are “doing the right thing.”

However, they can also be intolerant and, when faced with people from other cultures, countries or races, their insecurity and fear of the unknown can make them uncomfortable, even prejudiced at the extreme.

Many 4s choose a career in the military where their disciplined nature is right at home – and do exceptionally well when they are assigned duties that include administrative and organizational work.

As with any number, there are contradicting traits within the 4. For instance, while they are not particularly social or fun-loving, the 4 often reveals an entertainingly dry sense of humor. Further, although they can be strict parents, the 4 is extremely devoted and will walk through fire to get their children what they need.

My description of the 4 is, not surprisingly, almost the exact opposite of my description of the 3. This is to be expected, as each number is a counterpoint to the one that directly precedes it. The 2 is the polar opposite of the 1, the 3 displays traits that are directly opposed to those of the 2, and so on. Keep in mind, if you have a 4 in your core numbers, your other core numbers will affect the influence of the 4.

January 25, 2023 Birthday Horoscope

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

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope from sunsigns.org

JANUARY 25 birthday horoscope predicts that you personify the word originality. With every chance you get, you take on new experiences whether it is traveling or a new job opportunity. It makes your day when you can provide valuable input to people. So what zodiac sign is January 25? Yes, of course, you have an Aquarius birthday! And you are very innovative.

As your January 25 birthday horoscope signifies, you intend to make the world a better place although, that idea is just a little extreme for even you, Aquarius. While it is true that you are very charismatic and others gravitate to you, some goals are unattainable. Some people do not agree with your tactics or support your views.

Being an Aquarius born on January 25 birthday, you have a profound vision of how things should work but with your originality brings diversity to the picture. Some people are just afraid of change. The Aquarius zodiac sign’s ability to see all sides fosters your consequent tolerant nature.

When you make an argument, people listen even though they may not always agree with you. You are down to earth and as a whole, an open-minded individual. You are not inclined to follow anybody’s lead. You are a leader. People should take note of you!

January 25 birthday horoscope also shows that, in spite of your desire to populate the community with informed individuals, your great extroverted personality can cause a bit of trouble. You should practice expressing yourself in a way that it does not offend anyone.

Try to find the best in people by accepting them as they are rather than blowing them off as being unimportant. This does not make it easy for you to make lasting friendships although; you work better with a group of people. Being a part of a team gives you a strong sense of unity. This helps you perform better.

You know, many professions are part of a team. January 25 birthday personality have a good job of a doctor, philosopher or even a professor who is Director of the History Department, to consider as choices. You love exploring and nature.

Consult with your professionals in this field if at all interested. Somehow, I think you could be… you are here on this page. You see, when we have these gifts, and they are not used, there are consequences for it. It is not that anything bad is going to happen to you but rather, you miss opportunities when you should not.

Snapshots are worth their weight in gold if presented to the right connections. A picture could be worth a million dollars instead of words. Do you understand what I am saying to you? Aquarius, your hobby could be the best profession of your lifetime.

If today is your birthday, you do have some mystical qualities about you as well. If you could develop and master those unique traits, you would be amazed at the results. If those born on January 25 possessed healing properties, Aquarians would rise above and aid his fellow man.

Like how you always seem to let the big one get away when it comes to romance and close personal relationships. You have your guard way to high. Even your guards have guards. Ask yourself this, “How will I ever get what I want if I can’t let myself be open to love?”.

As your astrological sign compatibility by birthday suggest, if you let your guard down, you probably could find out who you were to be. January 25 Aquarians are just complicated people when it comes to sharing emotions and feelings.

Aquarius, you have a special connection to Air. You are a pair. This connection makes you even more special because you are a magnet for money! It is as if a burst of wind blows it into your bank account. Nevertheless, just as the wind came, it went away.

They say quick money never last. Somehow, you manage to shuffle things around to make it work. You need to save your money for when it rains. It takes both to make the flowers grow. You like your independence, do you not?

The January 25 zodiac foretells that, as being part of Uranus’ rule, Aquarians get even more power. You get more sex appeal, more understanding, and more love. The future of person who born on 25 January depends on how independent you are.

You have acquired positive qualities of a strong, understanding person. January 25 personality is that of a naturally curious and trendy person. You can do anything you set your mind to do. In love, finding a partner that compliments you is really what you want.
