Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You have lots of mental energy today, which is why you will attack any job that you do with intensity and purpose. In particular, you will roll up your sleeves and dig in, in a hands-on way. Conversations with work colleagues will be lively!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This can be a creative day because your thoughts are spinning and full of clever, creative ideas. Meanwhile, parents might come on a bit too strong with their kids today because there is so much mental energy. Think before you speak. Don’t get your belly in a rash.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you have the energy to tackle home repairs. Family discussions will be intense and lively. Actually, there is so much intellectual energy at play, an argument could break out because everyone has their own idea about what’s best. It was ever thus.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a busy day! Errands, short trips, appointments and discussions with siblings, relatives and neighbours will keep you hopping! You will also have strong opinions about practically everything and expect others to agree with you. (This ain’t gonna happen.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

When it comes to financial issues, earnings or possibly buying something today, you have strong opinions! You are not open to hearing input from others because your mind is made up. In fact, you want others to listen to what you have to say and to your way of doing things. Oh yeah.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today fiery Mars is lined up with your ruler Mercury, which makes your mental process excited and energetic. Your mind will be fast thinking and very active! However, it will also be all too easy to identify with your ego today and only see things your way. (Oops.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today you have lots of energy to do research and dig deep for answers or solutions to old problems. You’ll be like a dog with a bone and you won’t stop until you find what you’re looking for. In this way, this can be a very efficient day for you. Keep looking.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might find yourself at odds with a friend or a member of a group (especially someone younger) because you have such strong opinions today! Your mind is going a mile a minute, which means it’s difficult to take a moment to see someone else’s point of view. (Not so good.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Tread carefully when talking to parents, bosses, VIPs and the police today because people are extremely opinionated! Many people are so wound up with their ideas and opinions that they’re not open to listening to others. Instead, they want everyone to listen to them! (Hmmm.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You can use this intense mental energy today to study and learn something because you will be extremely focused. Not only that, you will be extremely curious and eager to discover new vistas and new answers. Travel plans might be ambitious.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’ll get a lot done if you have to wade through red-tape papers regarding inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt and such because you have lots of mental energy today! You will also have no trouble defending your own best interests if any disputes arise with someone else.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might attract someone to you today who is opinionated and has very definite ideas. Quite likely, they will be vocal and you’ll feel the hair blowing back over your ears. (Sheesh!) Go gently to avoid arguments.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Andy Samberg (1978) shares your birthday today. You are creative, idealistic and impulsive. You are also determined and sometimes bossy. You are a leader who is broad-minded and courageous.

From Moongiant.com –  You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else, you know was on the date the person was born. 

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is 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 August 2021 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waxing Gibbous Phase

The Waxing Gibbous on August 18 has an illumination of 81%. 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 August 18 the Moon is 10.49 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.

The 8 Lunar Phases

There are 8 lunar phases the Moon goes through in its 29.53 days lunar cycle. The 4 major Moon phases are Full Moon, New Moon, First Quarter and Last Quarter. Between these major phases, there are 4 minor ones: the Waxing Crescent, Waxing Gibbous, Waning Gibbous and Waning Crescent.

Wednesday is named for Woden himself, although the Romans called it dies Mercurii. This is a day associated with the color purple, the planet Mercury, and the metal quicksilver – which is also called mercury. See a pattern here?

When it comes to deities… yes, Mercury! However, there are a few other gods associated with Wednesday, including Odin and Hermes, Athena, and Lugh. Gemstones like adventurine and agate come in handy as well, as do plants such as aspen trees, lilies, lavender and even ferns.

Business and job-related issues, communication, loss and debt, traveling, and journeys are all tied in to Wednesday. This is a good day to do a working to open up lines of communication – especially if your own actions are preventing you from being an effective speaker or listener. Go someplace new or return to an old favorite stomping ground, step up your game, and settle up your accounts.

 Wednesday Witchery

 

Be bold and daring today! Expand your knowledge of the Craft by working with the planetary energies of Mercury on this multifaceted day of the week. Consider the Greco-Roman gods Mercury and Hermes and all of the many lessons they have for you. Embrace change and movement, and work on your communication techniques. Conjure up a little good luck for yourself with that Mercury dime spell. Call on Athena to inspire you to try magickal arts and crafts and to be more creative in your own spellwork and witchery.

Meditate on Odin and see what you can discover about him. I wonder what sort of fabulous and fascinating magickal wisdom you will uncover? Odin is a shaman, after all; he may appear in many guises and faces. I guarantee that he will make you laugh at yourself before he is through with you, but you will learn. It’s up to you what you do with that knowledge. Will you let it shapeshift into wisdom?

Wednesday is the wild and wily day of the week, so try to go with the flow; don’t fight the quirky energies of the day. Most importantly, follow your heart, and always keep a good sense of humor, because of Wednesdays you will really need it.

Wednesday

-Season of the witch-

Wednesday

Ruler: Wodin, Mercury

Colors: Orange, light blue, and gray

Power Hours: Sunrise and the 8th, 16th, and 24th hours following

Keywords: Success, creativity, communication

The word Wednesday is reminiscent of the Norse wind god Wodin, which is referenced in the popular rhyme verse “Wednesday’s child is full of woe.” This does not mean that those born on this day are full of sorrow or trouble. To be full of Woden (Wodin) means to be full of wind, to be spirited. Woden was such a powerful pagan god that the German church fathers changed the name of his day to Mittwoch, meaning midweek, in an attempt to exorcise his influence.

In the Spanish word for Wednesday, miercoles, we clearly see its connection to Mercury. Under the guidance of Mercury; Wednesday is a day of swift activity, communication, correspondence, and phone calls. This is a good day for journalists, writers, poets, bargaining, hiring employees, and visiting friends.

On Wednesdays, the hour of sunrise and every eight hours after that are also ruled by Mercury, making these times of the day doubly blessed. These are the strongest four hours for ritual work. Check your local newspaper, astrological calendar, or almanac to determine when sunrise occurs.
