Cooking on Monday will improve magics for creativity, insight, maternal

Monday – Day of Emotions ( Day of the Moon )
Monday Magick Power Hours: Moonrise. Key Words:
Magick, dreams, health, love, home and family In the word Monday, we can see
part of the word Moon. In the romance languages such as Italian or Spanish,
this day of the week is called Lunes and clearly relates to the word lunar.
On Mondays, a variety of magick may be worked.
Because Monday centers on the energies of the Moon, things like psychism,
dreams, feminine energy, health, success in spiritual pursuits, domestic
matters, and things of family origin are especially important this day.
Mondays are best for love magick and anything concerning home or family,
thus old saying, Mondays child is fair of face, which seems clearly to
relate to the themes of love and health.
Angels of Monday are Gabriel, Arcan, Missabu, and Abuzaha. Arcan is known as
the king of the angels of air and the “ruler” of Monday. Abuzaha (Abuzohar)
serves Monday, and is very responsive to invocations and ritual magick.
Missabu is a ministering angel of Arcan.
Monday is the Best Day For: Conjurations, Predictions, Knowledge, Writing,
Eloquence. Planetary Association: Moon Norse Deity Associated With the Day:
Frigga Origin of Name: “Monday” is short for “Moon Day” in honor of the
day’s alignment with that planetary body.

GrannyMoon Says Today Is: Tiu’s Day – the day of Mars…also Ares, Tiwaz,
Tiw (from whom it is named), Tuisco, and Tyr. Tuesday is ruled by Mars,
whose Magickal  influences are: Passion, courage, aggression, and
protection. Tuesday comes under the influence of Mars, the planet associated
with vitality, passion, ambition, and raw, unabashed power.
Mars energy makes the mind acute, and the body restless; therefore, on
Tuesday we are likely to exert ourselves physically and take action to
achieve goals. This day is dynamic and high-spirited, and the prevailing
energies may include carelessness and destructiveness as well, so it is good
to be cautious—especially while traveling.

Yin-Yang Balance
Spell Date:  Sunday, August 28, 2016
Sunday is the day of the sun, and yet today the moon is in Cancer, a most lunar and watery sign. So balance out your solar-aligned busy-ness and externally expressed action with some lunar introspection, cleansing, and loving self-care.
First, lightly clean and organize your space to create a more yin atmosphere while positioning yourself for more efficient yang action. Next, draw a bath. Add a tablespoon of sea salt to represent the ocean and the moon, and a few drops of frankincense oil to represent the sun. Stir the water in a counterclockwise direction with your left hand (to activate the water with lunar energy) and then in a clockwise direction with your right hand (for solar energy). Also light one white and one yellow candle to represent the moon and sun, respectively. Soak for at least forty minutes, as you feel yourself establishing an ideal equilibrium.

Sharpen Your Visualization Skills
Spell Date:  Saturday, August 27, 2016
Visualization is a major part of the magical process. This exercise will help improve your visualization abilities. You’ll need to do this with a magical friend or coven member. Here’s what you’ll need: a book/story you haven’t read, plain white paper, and drawing tools—these could be colored pencils, crayons, or markers. Sit comfortably and have your drawing materials in front of you. Have your friend read a short passage to you. The reader can’t show you any pictures. As your friend reads, “see” images in your mind. Begin to draw whatever you see or feel. When the reader stops, continue drawing if you wish. It can be as simple or detailed as you want. There is no right or wrong way to do this. It’s meant to strengthen your spellcasting skills. You can also reverse roles, and you can read to your friend.

Cornucopia of Abundance
Spell Date:  Friday, August 26, 2016
Celebrate the harvest season by acknowledging the abundance of the season. Place seasonal vegetables or fruits around your altar, or create a cornucopia to place them in. Include written messages that communicate your personal wishes for abundance and prosperity. Sprinkle the messages throughout the contents of the cornucopia, or place them in an offering bowl on your altar. As the season progresses, use the items in the cornucopia to feed yourself and your family, and replace them as needed. It is important to continually use and add to the altar until after Samhain to show the cycle of giving and receiving. Also, sharing your items with someone less fortunate will help sustain and promote your own abundance and increase your prosperity.

Spell for Runic Work
Spell Date:  Thursday, August 25, 2016
This day marks a Nordic festival celebrating the discovery of the runes. If you use runes, this is the perfect day to divine meaning from them, or to begin such a discipline in your magical practice. You may purchase runes or make them yourself.
To get them ready for divination, you can bless them with the elements: air, fire, water, and earth. Combine air and fire by lighting some loose incense on a charcoal block, and pass the bag of runes through the incense smoke. Combine water and earth by making saltwater, and sprinkle this lightly on the runes to cleanse them.
Place the runes in a dish on your altar, perhaps positioning them near other items charged for your magical work such as tarot cards, crystals, or jewelry. Let the runes remain upon your altar all night, then use them the next morning to do some divination work.

Heartwings Love Notes 739 Acceptance Of What Is
Heartwings says, “To dwell on what is not only conceals what is.”
Recently I found myself in the midst of a situation that was very uncomfortable, yet that I could nothing to change. There have been other times in my life going back to when I was a small child when this was the case, and so there were echoes from the past as well as the experience of the present to be dealt with. Being by nature a peacemaker, I have always found it difficult to deal with conflict. As I often do, instead of facing the situation that I was confronted with squarely, I kept wishing things were different.
To be sure that is a natural reaction. Few among us are willing to face a difficult situation without feeling regret as well as the desire to change it in some way to make things easier on everyone. Yet sometimes even with the best of intentions from all concerned, whatever is going on will continue. If I could have accepted this, I would have been better able to come to terms with what was happening. As it was, I had to work hard just to stay calm and keep from trying to help. I have been reflecting on this ever since.
The best that anyone can gain from dealing with a situation where one can do nothing is to allow for a greater sense of compassion to emerge in the heart. A wise woman once quoted me this ancient Hebrew saying: “If there were no grief to hollow out our hearts, where would there be room for joy?” As I have grown older and experienced more grief as well as regret, which is a precursor to grief,  I have recognized that there is a treasure to be gained from it. Yet the treasure must be dug out from beneath the
stubborn, unyielding crust of denial.
The denial can only be dealt with by my conscious acceptance of my inability to make anything different. As I accept what is and interweave it with threads of compassion, I can come to terms with my own sense of powerlessness, the pride that weeps over that, and the need to simply let go. The road cannot always be smooth. If there is no grit under the wheals, they will slip and slide without progress. The sandpaper that smoothes the rough wood brings out the beauty of the grain. As I allow it to my heart can surely learn to grow.
May you make the best of whatever situation you are dealing with at the time.
Blessings and best regards, Tasha Halpert

All her life Eloise had idolized her aunt, the late actress’ Alice Thorn. Alice had perished in an airline crash in the Andes. Her body was never recovered, making the execution of her estate complicated and difficult.
One day a legal document arrived with a set of keys, stating that Eloise’s parents could have access to Alice’s possessions stored for close to twenty years in a facility near Portland, Maine.
Bill Thorn, Eloise’s father wrinkled his nose and sniffed. “Personally I wouldn’t be bothered getting it. Probably junk.” He looked at his wife Millicent. “Let’s just donate it to charity.”
“I want nothing to do with your sister’s stuff.”  Millicent Thorn shook her head, pursed her lips and frowned. “Alice’s reputation is an embarrassment.”
Bill nodded. ”I’ll call the lawyer.”
“Please,” Eloise said. “First let me go look. When I was little she’d twirl me around and call me Twinkletoes. She gave me lollypops too.”
“You’ll be wasting your time,” Millicent said.
“I’ll rent a van and drive up.”
Bill eyeballed Eloise. “What is it about Alice you find so fascinating?”
Eloise’s blue eyes widened. “She was a movie star, dad. She led a fascinating life however brief: travel, oodles of celebrities for friends. I remember reading once that she went jogging with Princess Grace and ran around with Richard Burton between his marriages with Liz.”
“I wish she’d never been a member of our family.” Millicent grimaced. “She was a loose woman.”
Bill Thorn nodded. “Far as that goes, you couldn’t even call her a starlet, unless you count B movies. The only time Millie and I saw her on the screen was when she was dragged off by a creature into a lagoon.”
“Night of Death,” Eloise sighed, “I read about her in Cult America.”  She crossed her long legs and leaned forward, her red curls framed her face.
Millicent shook her finger at Eloise. “She has a reputation, you know. If I were you I’d keep quiet about Alice. You haven’t been teaching at Hope High all that long. Furthermore, were to meet someone from a good family…”
Bill Thorn looked kindly at his daughter. “Your mother’s right.”
“Thanks, Dad, but I really want to see what’s left of my wonderful aunt.”
The next day Eloise rented a van and drove from Providence to a storage facility outside Portland. At the office she said she’d be emptying out the unit.
“Good riddance,” the proprietor said. “Sooner that stuff’s gone the better.”
“Is something wrong?” Eloise asked.
He shrugged. “I dunno, but more than once my night watchman has complained of strange noises coming from that unit. And Joe’s been sober for as long as I’ve known him.”
He lowered his voice. “Shrieks and loud laughter, probably wild immoral carrying’s on.”
“What do you mean?”
His face reddened. “I’d rather not go into it.”
Eloise thanked him, drove over to the unit. There were several large posters from what her dad had called B movies with Alice Thorn in various states of undress. A large steamer trunks contained costumes, shoes, evening clothes, and memorabilia.
“These will be great for the drama department,” she said and loaded the contents into the van.
Eloise started driving back, but decided to stop for the night. She checked into a beachfront motel outside Portsmouth. Curious about its contents, she jostled the steamer trunk into her room.  As she fished for the key, the stench of a cigar surprised her.
“Humph, this is a non smoking room,” she said aloud. That’s when she heard the voice.
“Well look at you, Twinkletoes, all grown up.”
Eloise whirled around. Where had that voice come from? A shiver ran up her back. Was the motel haunted? Then she realized what the voice had said. “Twinkletoes?” she said. “Who’s calling me that?”
A diaphanous, scantily clad female shape with a familiar face appeared.  Beside her stood a tall, lean man with a shaved head and a thick black mustache. He puffed his cigar and winked at Eloise.
Eloise gasped. “Aunt Alice?”
“It ain’t Marilyn Monroe, Honey.”
“I’m your niece Eloise. But if you’re my Aunt Alice then you’re dead.”
“Dead! Is that what you call it? Do I look dead to you Twinkletoes?” She nodded at the dark Latino beside her. “This is Ramon, Honey. At the moment he’s my main squeeze.”
“But Aunt Alice, your plane crashed into the side of a mountain in the Andes.”
Alice shook her head. “You seem so Providence, Honey. Slip into one of my gowns and let’s go grab some drinks.”
Eloise’s mouth fell open. Then she stammered. “I’m so happy to see you.”
Alice handed her a low cut, slinky cocktail gown. “Me too you too. Now put this on Twinkletoes.”
Eloise looked at Ramon, gasped again, and fled into the bathroom. She shed her jeans and tee shirt and slipped into the formfitting gown.
“Good,” Alice said. “Now let’s go have some fun.” They crossed the parking lot and went into The Seascape, a restaurant and bar.
Eloise looked from one to the other and blinked. Was this a dream? It felt very real. They settled her at a table and went off to find the bar. Feeling bewildered, she looked around.
“Well hello,” a neat young man approached her table. “I knew if I stopped here I’d meet someone special. I’m Todd Granderson from Boston.  May I buy you a drink?  Are you here alone tonight or with someone?”
“I’m Eloise, on my way to Providence.”
“Same here,” he said. “What a coincidence. I’ve recently been appointed to the math department at Hope High.”
Her eyes flew open wide. “Hope High? That’s where I teach, in the social science department.”
Eloise glanced nervously at the bar. Alice Thorn was running her fingers through an older man’s hair, while Ramon had his arm draped around his wife’s tanned shoulders. Eloise blinked. She couldn’t tell if they were visible to anyone else. She shook her head and turned her attention to Todd.
“How about some dinner, too?” He asked.  Then he smiled. “Eloise you’re very beautiful. I’ve always had a passion for redheads. I hope we can see one another once school gets under way.”
He really did seem sincere. “Well, why not?” she said boldly. She glanced back at the bar. Alice smiled at her and Ramon winked. Then as they faded Alice blew her a kiss.
Keeping Your Energy Strong
Centered and Safe
by Madisyn Taylor
Keeping our energy strong and pure throughout the day is vital to somebody that is sensitive.
Being a sensitive person in this world can sometimes feel very draining due to the fact that we are very receptive to the energy of the people and environment around us. Still, we want to be part of situations that involve small or large groups of people, and we would like to do it without becoming overwhelmed or exhausted. With a few simple strategies we can entertain at home and socialize in the world without running the risk of losing ourselves in someone else’s energy or giving our energy away. All this takes is a little time and practice, and the result—being part of social events without ending up depleted—is well worth the effort.
The whole purpose of this self-care ritual is to help keep yourself strong energetically when you are in a situation that could potentially be draining. For example, if you are having a party, you might take some time to prepare beforehand. Just as you spend time cleaning your home and preparing food, it is essential to prepare your inner home for the event. This can be as simple as taking a mindful walk or a cleansing bath, or engaging in any other activity that gives you energy. You can even just sit alone for a set period of time, tuning in to your energy and connecting to yourself so that you are less easily carried away by the energy outside of yourself. You may employ a mantra such as “I am centered and safe in the home of myself.” You can also charge a crystal or gemstone or any piece of jewelry with protective energy and wear it or carry it with you. This can be helpful during the event when just seeing it or touching it can remind you that you are centered and safe.!
Keep in mind that it is always acceptable to excuse yourself for a bathroom break or to step outside for a moment. This can give you the time and space you need to check in with yourself and correct any energetic imbalances you detect. Whether you are at home or out in the world, taking care of yourself in this way enables you to keep your energy strong, even as you open yourself to others.
Hypersthene: The “Stone of Rest”
Properties: Considered the “stone of rest”, due to their deep, embedded energy source, hypersthene is essential for anyone recovering from illness or who has been overburdened by life stressors, feeling “tired but wired” or for anyone experiencing fatigue due to excessive worry. This stone will cloak the aura in a field of protection and invisibility. It gives you a sense of being hidden from the world in order for your deep recharging to take place. Hypersthene is a great meditation stone as it assists in relaxing and grounding, so that you may reconnect with what you feel you have lost or given up.
Folk Remedies: Hypersthene will help those with sleep disorders such as insomnia and sleep maintenance insomnia, to be able to actually go into a deep sleep state for longer periods of time so that the mind and body can restore what is needed much more than usual. This stone has a soft, smokey and very deep blue aura which shows its relaxing and restoring qualities well.
Feng Shui: Use in the Center area for health, wellness and balance. This stone also works well in the Northeast area of Knowledge/Skills, the Southeast area of Wealth, Prosperity, Opportunity and in the West area of Children, Creativity.
Crystal Cleansing: method 1 – 8
History: Hypersthene (Mg, Fe)SiO3 comes from the Greek word hyper meaning “above” and stenos meaning “power” and translates to over strength. Hypersthene is found in both igneous and some metamorphic rocks, as well as in both stoney and iron meteorites. Hypersthene is the name given to the mineral when a significant amount of both enstatite and ferrosilite are pesent. Also known locally as Labrador-hornblende or Paulite, due to large amounts mined off the island of Paul, located near the coast of Labrador. Labradorite-hypersthene is also called Norite.

Cauldron Fires
In my lap the cauldron lays,
Though scalding hot
It harms me not
burns not in the usual way.
Around me the dancing fire burns,
by flesh it is fueled,
by knowledge is ruled,
Awakened, my spirit returns.
Within the cauldron dwells a golden light
As in is tossed,
Unwanted dross,
Which with the fire does fight.
Around me then, the fires surge,
As slag is burned,
To gold is turned,
From within does wisdom emerge!

Weekly Horoscope, Beginning: Sunday, 28 August 2016
———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –
If you`re born within cusp period (16 to 26 of any month); you`re advised to read horoscopes of both signs covered by that period. You`re in the border; you may have influences from both houses of those signs.
Outlines are longer versions; consists of every possible details of everyday and based on three parts of each sign: 1st, 2nd & 3rd Decan; that is, any of three divisions of 10° within a sign of the zodiac.
———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –
Aries: March 21 — April 19
Personal theme: I am!!
Epigram: Once you understand you`re in a cycle that`s about discovery, instead of battling changes, you`ll recognise them as an invitation to explore, and do so. With eclipses on September 1st and 16th shaking up elements of your life, work or daily routine, you`re urged to be flexible about both existing arrangements and new ventures. Explore everything. What`s least expected could work out brilliantly in the long run.
Outline: Think about what you`re going to say, then pick up the phone and place the call. Taking the first few days of the week step-by-step is the best way to survive the frantic — albeit fun — times. Tuesday and Wednesday, if you find yourself flirting with someone, make yourself clear. This is also crucial on Thursday or Friday, but the people you`ll be dealing with will most likely be family members and the tenor of the conversation might be difficult and emotionally charged. A different kind of charge — a blast of energy — lifts your weekend to great heights.
An exciting work assignment may be coming your way. Its fun to do a job that has an element of creativity about it. If you`ve been looking for employment, it may not be possible to find something in your area of expertise. Be willing to take a temporary gig as a means to maintain a steady income. Health problems? Pay a visit to your doctor and follow orders. Skipping steps or not taking medication will put you back to square one.
The fresh start indicated by this week`s solar eclipse is most likely to come at work. A new working partnership may be on the horizon. It would be wholly understandable if you had some disquiet about this. It may be that you feel that someone is unqualified or unsuitable for a task. Note that Mercury turns retrograde on Tuesday. It may be that someone simply has to work through a trial period until at least the Equinox next month and that you perhaps need to give them the benefit of the doubt. You`re probably right in thinking that this is all very well, – but you will be left in the role of teacher or guide: a task you don`t want to undertake. It might also feel as though you`re caught in an administrative quagmire. Hold the thought that as always, these times to will pass. Fact is that others may be demanding too much, too soon or setting unrealistic expectations.
———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –
Taurus: April 20 — May 20
Personal theme: I have!!
Epigram: You know the activities and people you enjoy and, just as much, what you don`t. So when the events triggered by Thursday`s eclipsed New Moon force you into unfamiliar territory, you are not happy. Despite that, don`t say no. This is kick-starting a cycle of growth and exploration that will shake things up a bit, but in wonderful and, often, long overdue ways.
Outline: Monday through Wednesday are not great days to make major decisions about the future of your cash. In the present tense, cash will be uncharacteristically flying out of your pockets. More than anything, you`re spending money on entertaining ways to waste time. This is all well and good, but Thursday and Friday strike a deeper note — your close friends are in the picture, and it`s been a while since you`ve caught up. Hanging out with someone and talking for hours is the best use of your Friday night. Saturday and Sunday, romance and art are prominent themes.
A creative block may be driving you to distraction. Instead of obsessing over the problem, turn your attention to mundane matters. The best breakthroughs occur when you perform routine tasks. Have you been longing to update your wardrobe? You could find some beautiful clothes that enhance your natural good looks. It won`t be necessary to spend a great deal of money. Shopping at charity shops can be fun and inexpensive. Treat yourself to lunch out.
Once again, there is significant planetary attention in the research and development area of your solar chart. This is where creative ideas are produced. The downside is that they are not always given either the capital or the time needed to turn into success. However excited you may be at the beginning of the week, it might be as well to try to slow the pace, not react to demands made by others and instead ensure that you`ve kept adequate notes of what it is that you want to achieve and would do given space and support. Thursday`s solar eclipse will usher in a new phase. It may be another fortnight yet before it`s possible to identify what`s been gained in recent weeks. What seems likely is that unconsciously you`ve arrived at a cutting edge. It may be that by the middle of next week, you will feel more empowered to tackle the challenges this brings.

Gemini: May 21 — June 20
Personal theme: I think!!
Epigram: The confusion introduced by your ruler Mercury`s retrograde cycle, which begins Tuesday and lasts until 22 September, is nothing new. Now, however, that disarray highlights crucial questions about your domestic or working life and, especially, the need to do things differently, if not make serious changes. So when certain of those arrangements come undone, as is likely, recognise that as the beginning of a new chapter.
Outline: It`s not raining; it`s pouring the first half of the week — metaphorically, at least. You were in the mood to meet some new people, and a bus full of new people has just pulled up to your life. (If you`re single and looking, this is an especially wonderful development.) Chatting, handshaking and even flirting take up your week until Thursday, when money concerns distract you from your social life. Friday is a high point in your week — you`ve gotten a lot done — and Saturday and Sunday are fun, friend-filled and active.
Attending to domestic chores could be your first priority. Tidying up and gathering supplies can be gratifying. This is not a good time to move on a real estate deal. A purchase or sale may be cause for regret. Wait until circumstances are more financially favourable to buy or sell property. If you have to move, look for a temporary situation. Don`t commit to a long term lease. A flexible arrangement will make it easier to find your ideal place.
This week`s Solar Eclipse comes within a couple of days of your ruling planet, Mercury, turning retrograde. The fact that both events occur in another sign associated with your ruling planet suggests you could feel the impact of this sophisticated New Moon particularly. There`s high probability of domestic change and re-engagement with those whom you usually associate with a different setting. Administratively this could be a demanding time. Expenses and prices generally will surely require attention. You might also get involved with a valuation. You may not know quite where you stand until after the Lunar Eclipse in a fortnight`s time. For now, the process of going back through old papers and reminding yourself of facts and figures, though a demanding exercise, may be totally necessary if you`re to come to fresh understanding in a business partnership.
———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –
Cancer: June 21 — July 22
Personal theme: I feel!!
Epigram: As a Cancerian, you`ve an instinctive understanding of the lunar cycle. Thus, you welcome the stillness of Thursday`s New Moon. Yet it`s the first of two eclipses, the second`s on September 16th. Both are about breakthroughs, some welcome, others less so. Urgent as decisions about these and other matters seem, this period is as much about rethinking your perspective and priorities as the changes, ultimately, you`ll make.
Outline: Your wild side is coming through at the start of the week and people are responding well to it. You are the kind of person who makes an impact. Let your creative brilliance solve whatever conundrums are puzzling the people around you. Toward the middle of the week, your mind fills with possibilities for the future. This is a time for new beginnings. The workweek ends with the spotlight on you, and it stays there throughout the weekend — a weekend that sees you rewarding yourself with an extravagant purchase.
It may be difficult to get accurate information. Conflicting opinions cause confusion. If you can`t postpone a decision, trust your instincts. A stuffy colleague may heap scorn on your methods. Don`t let their petty criticisms bother you. Reasonable people know you are making the best of a difficult situation. Lean on your family for support. Their encouragement will help you withstand all the stress you`re experiencing. Count your blessings. You are loved.
This will surely prove a demanding week when catching up with others and getting up to speed with some of the decisions and steps they`ve taken in the last fortnight is emotionally demanding. There might also be pressure to increase your workload. Though initially determined to resist this, this might not be an option by the end of the month. The art therefore may be to focus on emergency planning and ensure you are well-stocked up and prepared if emergencies arrive. Thursday`s Solar Eclipse will be followed in a fortnight`s time by a Lunar Eclipse in another of the Water signs. As for many people it could take all of those two weeks to settle down and to find a suitable groove for this next quarter of the year. With neighbours, siblings and especially younger people or even small animals demanding particular attention, this could prove an expensive time too.

Leo: July 23 — August 22
Personal theme: I will!!
Epigram: While there`s no way around complications involving everything from practical or financial matters to issues with loved ones, the clarity you gain will prove valuable. These and other perplexing questions are preparing you for the thrilling, if unexpected, developments that arise next week. Every fact you must gather and informative conversation you have now will provide information that will be crucial to decisions you`re making then.
Outline: A party is a fine place to get some things figured out. You and your friends have a casual rapport that strikes fairly deeply, shorthand that lets you talk about weighty issues with lightness and humour. You are constantly impressed by these friends, especially on Wednesday, and Thursday and Friday your chest swells with contentment. Intuition, sensitivity and pride all figure strongly toward the end of the week. This weekend, someone who has heard good things about you will finally get to meet you; and they`ll treat you like a celebrity.
You can negotiate a good financial deal. Don`t accept the first offer you get. Be prepared with a counteroffer. A job that seems to pay well will have hidden strings attached. It may be wise to get a list of your duties before accepting this position, along with the salary, benefits and vacation policy. You might want to look for another job if you`re expected to work around the clock. Leisure time is as important to you as the food you eat and the air you breathe.
Thursday`s solar eclipse affects an area of your chart associated with financial matters. This sophisticated New Moon may well bring a change in your affairs. True, eclipses don`t need to take effect on the exact day themselves. Much depends on your personal chart. Another likely possibility is that you will draw a line in the sand before next weekend: making it clear to someone that you have new boundaries. These may well be driven by your developing ethical code. Whether this is because you are determined on a new course of study or have decided that this will be the year when you finally live within your means, putting controls in place may be imperative as far as you`re concerned. It is quite normal for an eclipse to bring both a fresh start and a conclusion. Bearing in mind that Mercury turns retrograde before next weekend, it may be that you decide that there is one matter that is gone on long enough and which must now be brought to an end. The timeline here could be early October.
———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –
Virgo: August 23 — September 22
Personal theme: I analyze!!
Epigram: You`re superb at organising your own life and others`, but occasionally over-plan. However with your ruler Mercury retrograde in your sign, from Tuesday, and the Virgo eclipsed New Moon, on Thursday, shaking things up, life`s about the unexpected. While you can`t predict the nature or extent of developments, at least you can ensure whatever you organise is flexible enough to ride out those twists and turns.
Outline: What you need at the outset of the week is the skills of a mathematician. If you`re not a mathematician, just work extra hard to be logical and reasonable when dealing with whatever comes your way. Emotional investment isn`t paying off at this juncture. That said, be as warm as possible when communicating with others. Thursday and Friday, largely because you`re giving off good vibes, a family event you`ve been dreading turns out to be a blast. On Saturday and Sunday, rely on your flexibility and organizational prowess to get everything done.
You feel a need for change, but this isn`t a good time to make a move. Household responsibilities might require you to stay put. Taking a trip or going to school could interfere with your duties to a relative. Fortunately, money for luxuries could come in. Be sure to give yourself a handsome reward for all your hard work. Expensive toiletries, handsome jewellery or fashionable clothes might give you a lift. Satisfying your sensual side gives you a happy glow.
This week`s solar eclipse is in your sign. As you might expect, this sophisticated New Moon promises a change in direction. It may be that this will affect all areas of your life; from family dynamics, through finances and on into your career which may now be reaching new phase. With Mercury turning retrograde in your sign also, there could be a sense that you`re turning the clock back. This may be temporary. A strong possibility is reaching out to someone you worked with in the past. Though they may be long gone from the scene you shared years ago, their recent experiences and advice could be hugely helpful. It might be valuable too, to take time out mid-week to put on paper the pros and cons of taking certain steps. You could also draw up a timeline to conclude at Mercury`s next station (which neatly coincides with the Equinox) by which time you should know what options are really available. This could be a fun exercise if carried out with someone born under one of the air signs of Gemini, Libra or Aquarius.
———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –
Libra: September 23 — October 22
Personal theme: I balance!!
Epigram: If it seems destiny is determined to de-clutter your life, that`s true. While you`re undoubtedly relieved to see certain situations, alliances or obligations go, saying farewell to others is far more difficult. Yet in every case these are de-cluttering your mind, and your life, and making way for the powerful cycle of growth and good fortune triggered by mighty Jupiter`s move into Libra on 9 September.
Outline: You`re sick of what you already know. You`d rather wing it in a conversation over a subject you`ve hardly ever considered. This is related to a desire — that is strong Monday through Wednesday — to experience new things. To grow mentally. To expand. Thursday and Friday, you have little time to acquire information, what with all the things everyone else needs from you; but even in your most trying moments you have an eye on the beauty around you. The weekend offers plenty of time to be around friends and stare up at the sky.
It may be difficult to get peace and quiet. A lot of local activity in your community could make it difficult to relax. Inconsiderate neighbours might wear on your nerves. You might think about relocating. Don`t make any important decisions just yet. The problems you are experiencing are only temporary. Be patient. Staying with a friend can bring welcome relief. If the worst comes to worst, think about staying a hotel. Do what`s best for your health.
Venus arrives in your sign just a little ahead of Thursday`s solar eclipse and Mercury`s retrograde station. The combined effect of these three cosmic changes, suggests a week of drama. At one level, you might simply not know quite what to wear. It`s well known that Libra likes to look good and that when in tune with surroundings operates well. Presently, you might not know whether to show a hyper- efficient image or a softer one. Bear in mind that these cosmic changes will, of course, affect all signs. It may be that you need to adopt a hybrid style and also revert to people-watching and listening. More than one person might appear to be going back on their word. With rapidly changing conditions, arriving at fast decisions is unlikely to be easy. Of course, it could be that you`re up against an early September deadline. Whilst this might have been agreeable some weeks ago, that may no longer be the case. Rather than put too much pressure on yourself, you might wish to negotiate more times to consider if choices made are ones you can live with.
———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –
Scorpio: October 23 — November 21
Personal theme: I desire!!
Epigram: Over recent weeks often you`ve been forced to either go along with others` questionable decisions or abandon your plans in favour of those made by certain individuals. While, at the time, you were fuming or struggling to escape, you now recognise how beneficial these were. Better yet, they`ve prepared you for the easier, if not actually thrilling, but as unexpected, changes unfolding between now and mid-September.
Outline: As good as it can be to take risks in your life; risks aren`t going to go your way on Monday or Tuesday. Tempted as you are, you`re best off passing them up. Being careful is key. Don`t let any minor details escape your attention on Wednesday. Thursday, the tension finally breaks and you can rely more on your wits. Sometimes it`s a lot more fun to go along for the ride than to be the person setting the course. Without the stress of being in control, you can open yourself up to worry-free bliss. Worries about work weigh on you this weekend. Modesty and calmness are the answer.
Don`t give friends too much influence over your decisions. They`ll urge you to go on some expensive outings. Deep down inside, you may prefer to be alone. Solitude can be lovely. It will allow you to connect with some feelings you`ve been trying to suppress. If you`re tired of a job, start looking for another one. You might not find something that pays more, but it will be emotionally fulfilling. Never underestimate the importance of being happy; it`s critical.
In any week, there will be significant planetary patterns forming. This time, with a Solar Eclipse on Thursday, Mercury turning retrograde and Venus changing signs, it might be as well to anticipate `bumps in the road`. Solar eclipses often mark fresh starts. Though this one isn`t in your sign, it may be that those close to you are moving in new directions. This could be driven by their need to provide different kind of service or indeed by health considerations. The latter could be something of a priority to you too. It might also be that you need to get more involved in detailed administration. This might even come as something as a surprise on Tuesday. You could be stopped in your tracks by the way in which information is presented. It might also be that accrued and essential travel expenses threaten a budget: though there may be little you can do about this barring put in place new controls. Exasperation would be understandable and may be considerable.
———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –
Sagittarius: November 22 — December 21
Personal theme: I see!!
Epigram: It would be no surprise if you`re still wrestling with the seemingly unfair demands or, possibly, unwelcome changes triggered by potent aspects involving Mars and tough Saturn, in Sagittarius. However, you`re already recognising their potential and, over the coming weeks, will actually be thankful they took place. For now, focus on learning about these and the people they`re introducing into your life. You`ll be fascinated.
Outline: Some people like to sit on the porch and talk about their dreams. You`d rather march into the world and realize yours; but there are a lot of porch-sitters in your life, so for the first half of the week, keep your head down and ignore them. The second half of the week, you`re more open to other people, but you`d still be wise to follow your mood, and if that means building a fort with couch cushions, crawling in with a book and shutting out the rest of the world, so be it. Something takes you beyond your sofa this weekend — a trip? — and the journey does you tons of good.
Work can be a source of strain. You might have to take orders from a micromanager. Nothing reduces morale like trust issues. Your employer`s lack of faith could prompt you to look for another job. Be patient in your search. You should hold out for a job at an established company. Working for a start-up operation will be more trouble than it is worth. It`s time to practice patience. Reading, watching movies and listening to music can lift your spirits.
You could be stopped in your tracks mid-week. Thursday`s Solar Eclipse occurs in the same week that Mercury turns retrograde at the apex of your solar chart. It may be that there is some rethinking to do. At the very least it should be apparent that insufficient planning has been put into the next stage of your life journey. True, it could be that developments in the lives of siblings or neighbours prompts this thinking. Whatever the reason, reviewing travel arrangements and general routine might be considered wise. This week, Venus begins an annual transit of an area associated with networks and associations. Here too there may be developments to consider. Whilst it might not be necessary for you to stay involved, plans suggested for this coming year could sufficiently enthuse you to have at least peripheral involvement. With Saturn continuing its slow and stately transit through your sign, resisting responsibility may not be at all easy. It may be that one group in particular would be reluctant for you to cease involvement.
———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –
Capricorn: December 22 — January 19
Personal theme: I use!!
Epigram: Capricorn may be the most decisive sign of the zodiac; but it`s only now that circumstances are preventing you making plans or taking action, that you recognise the importance of being in control. Still, with Mars in the most strategic portion of your chart until the end of September, your life`s about reflection. Dull? No way. You`re preparing for the dynamic cycle that October is all about.
Outline: People love chatting with you, but your chatting time Monday through Wednesday is crowded out by more pressing tasks. Be nice, of course, but don`t let yourself get trapped in a conversation about, say, what was on TV last night. The best way to get through this week is narrowing your aim and strike quickly at everything. As you check things off your list, your momentum will build and you`ll get more done than you ever thought possible. Focus on one person on Friday; lay on the love. Saturday and Sunday, nothing is as it seems.
It may be difficult to get the training you need to advance. Be open to learning from someone who is much younger. The sooner you put your prejudices aside, the better. Fortunately, you are probably secure in your current job. Continue to develop contacts and expand your customer base. By the time you get some new skills, you may be given a promotion. Use your impressive title as a springboard. The best is yet to come; congratulations.
By the end of this week, it may be apparent that information given has been less than complete. For some, it may be that a training scheme has not lived up to earlier expectations. Others may decide that though a course once looked perfect, the actual environment in which it is offered is not. This week`s Solar Eclipse coincides with Venus` arrival at the apex of your solar chart and Mercury`s retrograde station. It could take until the end of September for you to feel on sound footing. For now, considering options will surely take priority. It is just possible that a closer working relationship with someone born under Libra (or perhaps Taurus) will make a difference to your long-term planning. A Solar Eclipse is of course a type of New Moon. It`s usually at least some days after the lunation before early promise is realised. To this end, it might suit you to arrange a key meeting for early next week when cards can be laid on the table and when you`re likely to feel sufficiently empowered to declare unhappiness at certain proposals – as well as confidence in what can be achieved and within which deadline.
———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –
Aquarius: January 20 — February 18
Personal theme: I know!!
Epigram: Annoying as certain bizarre and often perplexing situations may be, they`re introducing you to fascinating people or the kind of ideas you really enjoying exploring. If there`s any problem, it`s that others won`t always share your enthusiasm. It makes no difference if it`s family, close friends or colleagues, take a break from them, too. In every way these changes, even if temporary, will hugely enliven your life.
Outline: The fires of your romantic life are burning so brightly Monday through Wednesday that you can`t see anything else. The connection isn`t just about physical attraction; it`s deeper and more cerebral than that. If you could spend every hour of the week with this person, you would, but Thursday has something else in store for you: a lot of responsibilities to see through. Friday finds you tending to some long overlooked chores as well, although you find them therapeutic. Saturday and Sunday are marked by creativity and sudden changes.
Getting out of debt may be difficult. Resist the temptation to borrow money. Friendship and finance do not mix. You may have to put yourself on a tight budget to repay everything you owe. Getting another credit card will only compound the problem. If you`re looking for work, explore opportunities in an educational, cultural or religious organisation. Working abroad is another good option. Do what is necessary to gain the security you desire.
Venus arrives in another of the Air signs, Libra, and does so slightly ahead of Mercury turning retrograde and a Solar Eclipse. Obviously, the combined effect will affect all signs. For Aquarius, the emphasis turns to business partnerships, and particularly those that extend beyond the local area. There may now be an emphasis on international dealings or at least those that are out of state. For some, this might require considerable care regarding currency transactions. A Solar Eclipse is a special type of New Moon: implying a fresh start. It wouldn`t be so surprising if top priority for you was involvement with a co-operative association. It could be though that there is in initial rebuff. For example, plans to take out a new credit card arrangement could come unstuck when it is discovered that the necessary paper trail is not in order. All this could be resolved after Mercury stations again at the end of September. Thwarted in one area though you could make headway in another by renewing contact with someone who assisted you once in the past and whose appreciation of your talents has always been obvious.
———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –
Pisces: February 19 — March 20
Personal theme: I believe!!
Epigram: As an intuitive Piscean, you already sense change is coming; and between Thursday`s eclipsed New Moon, and the lunar eclipse, on 16 September, both of which raise questions about elements of your life you`ve struggled to keep as they are, you could be anxious. However, your intuition rightly tells you these aren`t just inevitable, they`re exactly what`s needed. Undertake them, and you`ll learn why.
Outline: You are not charging out of the gate on Monday. Matter of fact, you might not even leave the house. The start of the week — through Wednesday — you are busy but not particularly ambitious socially. A sense of uncertainty weighs heavily on you, at least until Thursday, when an unexpected romantic development puts a smile on your face. Expect the grin to last through Friday. Saturday and Sunday, you are inspired to go on a new health kick. In addition to ensuring you look good, this will help you feel good, too.
It could be difficult to strike a healthy balance between your professional and private lives. You may want to put a romantic relationship on hold until you get some job security. If you have a choice between taking a flat salary and earning a commission, choose the latter. You may easily outperform the competition. Put your powers of persuasion to work. They will be instrumental to your career success. Trust your instincts about what people want to hear.
This week`s Solar Eclipse is in your opposite sign and occurs just after Mercury turns retrograde in that sign and as Venus arrives in Libra. A Solar Eclipse is a form of New Moon and usually marks some kind of fresh start. In this instance, you could be courted by someone you worked for in the past and who is keen to revive that partnership. Another possibility is returning to something you wrote – perhaps even as much is two or three years ago, revising it and then presenting it in a few weeks` time. Rethinking, reinventing and recalling are all features of this period. There might even be a financial incentive to do so; but of course, since your opposite sign is involved, it may be that it`s developments in the life of a close friend or partner that have full priority. Indeed, it could be their return to a situation that warrants much discussion. Though nothing may be signed, sealed or delivered until at least the middle of next week, it should be apparent before the weekend that there has been a real break in any clouds that have formed and that though there is still much work to do, you are, at last moving forward.

  1. Hi, I loved this. The story with Eloise and her aunt was great. I hate to talk about my blog but I noticed you visited my latest post and I wanted to reassure you that every single piece of divination equipment/cards were cleansed before I left them and Tabby has started training with spells and cards. And it gave me the chance to caution the girls about seeking protection and not doing anything risky while I was still considered cool. I’m so impressed with your writings (even though I’m behind) I felt I needed you to know!


    • I really enjoy your blog and writings! I am afraid my friend Stephen Halpert, was the author of “Twinkle Toes” I enjoy his short stories and his wife, Tasha’s, too! Thanks so much for reading and responding! Blessings!
