Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2009 Daily Planetary Guide.
Mercury enters Sagittarius at 7:28 PM EST.
We are entering a long period, like a year, when frivolous or beautification projects will not get the go ahead. Only practicality gets the money.
This week, search out answers using the rational and practical means at your fingertips. Don’t guess.
The morning starts out social and easy and so you wonder what went wrong by the end of the day. Well, a square to Mars will do that to you. Ego energies start running high and arguments ensue. Be careful, you are showing more than you think and your Karma could be rather instant.
Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say:
It is hard to feel safe today.
Today’s Cat Comfort Card is :
Cat Suit: “Be Daring. Be wild. Be bold.”
Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for:
Epona’s Wild Daughter leaves little horsy footprints after she spills the white sugar. Her name is Dorcha and nightmares are her game. She brings our inner shadows to light, depresses us and can bring us to the brink of madness where we either grow or sink further into insanity. She is the Sphinx and we must answer her riddles or face her wrath. She forces us to face what we have buried, confront it and move on or sink into a really stinky swamp of self denial and defeat.
Today’s Lo Shu Number is 6 and the Element is Wood. The Horse finds conflict today but the Rooster (George) has ease. Today is an auspicious day for haircuts, medical procedures, writing and gambling but not for births.
Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I acknowledge the wonderful qualitative I have within me. I open up to the beauty and creativity of my Soul and I accomplish great things easily and successfully.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought at a time.
COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER
Many of you have never heard of a Blessing Day. It is a very old tradition in which for one day, everything you handle, you bless and thank. Now you may be wondering why on earth you would do that. Hey, isn’t finding one thing you are thankful for each day enough of a challenge? The answer is no. In the latter, you get to pick, in the former, it picks you. I started the day blessing and thanking my pencil. Oddly enough, I still have it and the cats have normally stolen at least three by now. Not only that, but I use it at the computer to take notes as I run searches and play games. My searches have gone really well today. My games have gone just as well. Just give it try. You will surprised at the results when you acknowledge all the things in a day that help you and make your day better.
Magickally, do you think LED candles can be as effective as regular wax ones in a spell? I am trying the LED ones because they are safer. I could always leave them running until the battery runs down for the normal 7 day spells. Yes, the wax and wick are expending energy but so is the battery. Both emit light and photons are photons. You can even get them now with a wax coated outside and scent. I just got 3 red cinnamon scented ones at a price I would pay for 3 red real candles of that size. Now if I can just find some green ones, the money spells are covered.
Evergreen is an excellent clearing and protecting scent. This is the only time of year you can get evergreen scented candles, so stock up folks. I just got a glass Mystic Harbor one at BJ’s and it is GOOD! A little more money and I stock up.
I have to say, my mind has cleared and I am feeling very optimistic. Yes, my body has to get up to speed here, but two anesthesias, two surgeries and growing new tissue will do that to you. I am certain I am going to make my deadline of January 1st for being back to normal. The cats are ready because Mommy promised them an enclosed porch next year on which to lounge and they promised to leave the furniture alone.
There are a lot of people out there on the internet who aren’t who or what they say they are. I have a message for them. Be very careful who you befriend. A lot of us have really good skills at searching people on the internet. In fact, the chief fraud Secret Service agent said I was the best civilian at researching people and companies he had ever seen and finding links between them. I have friends that are just as good and have access to data bases I don’t. Just because I am a Druid don’t ever think that makes me a dumb, country bumpkin that communes with the butterflies, talks to fairies and can’t use a computer. In fact, I can do all three really well. I am working on combining all three. They call us Cybermages…..we use electronics to do spells and some of us have been at it since the first PC’s hit the market over 35 years ago. We have moved radionics into the computer age.
Purdy has just crawled in my arms and I must stop typing and pet her. Here I sit, at my laptop, in lotus position and a cat oozes in my lap, on her back, and nuzzles me. You know I had stop and pet her. There is just no choice. I have discovered that I thought I bought a laptop portable desk but what I really bought was a portable cat cave. Geez, is there no truth in labeling any more?
I finished Kindred in Death by Nora Roberts and it is really, really good. I think it is one of the best in the entire series. I am reading Grave Secret by Charlaine Harris of the Sookie Stackhouse novels. I’ll get back to you in it as I don’t know where it is going yet. I have vowed not to use my abilities to divine the plot twists like I did with Kindred in Death. It takes the mystery out of it, but when I come to care about the characters, it tends to happen.
Oh, just one other warning.: when you pretend to something you aren’t, keep in mind the old gods and the nature spirits aren’t your modern washed out gods. They tend to seek immediate justice and it isn’t pretty. Karma can be instant.
