Daily Spells from Llewellyn

Magickal Tablecloth
Spell Date: Sunday, November 19, 2017

Select or sew a light- or neutral-colored
tablecloth that is made of cotton or a cotton blend, is not too bulky, and fits your favorite table. Use the tablecloth for meals, rituals, or other important gatherings. Afterward, give each guest or participant a permanent ink pen to write on the tablecloth, signing their name and adding a date and perhaps a comment, a sketch, a design, or whatever inspires them.

After they leave, trace over their work with a fine-point permanent marker, then embroider the tracings with brightly colored embroidery floss for permanence. The tablecloth will become a growing memento of important occasions as well as a gathering point for magick and memories.

To use your magickal table cover, lay the decorated cloth over the table with reverence and ceremony. Reflect on the energies within, saying:

“All these people, all these times, all
these intentions, be here with me now.”

Scorpio Self-Mastery
Spell Date: Saturday, November 18, 2017

A new moon is a time of new beginnings and invites us to set intentions that will grow as the moon swells to full on December 3rd. Today’s new moon is in the fixed water sign of Scorpio, the sign of bonding, control, and intensity. It is a powerful spiritual and sexual energy, transformative in nature. Scorpio is passionate, perceptive, and focused, so let’s set an intention for self-mastery. Where are your passions, and which of them needs focus? Set an intention there, such as:

“I love to write poetry and want
to devote more time to it.”

Make your intention SMART—specific, measurable, achievable, results-focused, and time-bound:

“I will write poetry, longhand, after
breakfast, one page a day, so that by
the full moon I will have fifteen pages,
or fifteen poems in total.”

Now get to work and manifest what you have set out to create.

Spirit Clearing Spell
Spell Date: Friday, November 17, 2017

The element of spirit concerns the mind and the soul. Spirit magic deals in the subtleties of life. It is common to pick up bits of negativity and other distractions during the day. Spirit magic can help to release those.

For this spell, you will need a black bowl and a white bowl, plus a handful of clear crystal beads. Start with your beads in the white bowl. Stir them with your hand and let your thoughts wander. When you come to a troublesome thought, pick up a bead. Acknowledge the thought, then let it go, dropping the bead in the black bowl. Black is the color of binding, so it works for holding things you wish to release. Continue the process until you run out of thoughts that bother you.

After you finish the spell, rinse the beads under running water. Then let them dry, ready to reuse another time.

Autumnal Airing
Spell Date: Thursday, November 16, 2017

Perhaps there is no able-bodied person in your immediate household to do heavy lifting or climbing. Make the annual fall clean-up a family affair. When the younger relatives arrive, distribute the chores and tools. Many hands make light work. Clean the front yard, back yard, patio, and porch. Wash the windows, inside and out, and clear away any cobwebs in high and low corners. Dust the ceiling fans and chandeliers, and move the furniture for a thorough vacuuming. Wash all the linens, both table and bed. Run little-used bakeware, utensils, and glassware through the dishwasher.

In no time, your domicile will be sparkling. Have the elders prepare the meals, and gather everyone together to break bread. Serve a light meal at lunch to fortify everyone for the remainder of the day and a heartier repast when all is done. An alternative might be to accomplish all of the above for a member of your community who is in need of assistance.

Check Your Crown Spell
Spell Date: Wednesday, November 15, 2017

The energies swelling in the air today bring forth an awareness of your vital life force and sense of freedom. In my spiritual tradition, Sacred Fires, we use the symbol of the crown as a tool to represent both of these things as well as our own personal sovereignty in life. Today is the perfect day for you to check to see if you’re still wearing your crown and to make any adjustments necessary to maintain its presence.

This morning or night when the clock strikes 11:11, take a few moments to align your energy with the universe and to draw down your sacred crown of power. Place your right hand over your heart and your left hand over your right pectoral muscles, then take three deep breaths and chant:

“Serpent rising, owl descend,
spider weaving with no end!”

Chant this until you feel all of your energy become centered on the now.

Spell Date: Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Procure a large, used plastic kewpie doll’s head and twenty-three rusty nails. Carefully poke each nail through the flesh of the doll’s face, from the inside out. As you do so, incant the following and ask the doll’s head to watch over and protect you from a specific enemy:

“Kewpie gri, watch over me, absorb
this hex of hate from (name of enemy).
Kewpie gri, da abbo bo mi.”

If you are able to, acquire a photo or write the name of the person you need protection from on a small piece of black paper and place it inside the head of the doll. Hang this in a hidden place on your property and keep its existence to yourself. Upon completion, give a thankful eulogy to your kewpie gri. Make a small coffin and bury this powerful spell deep in a marked and honored grave adorned with living flowers.

Banish Illness
Spell Date: Monday, November 13, 2017

To help yourself (or a loved one) recover or heal from illness or injury, use this spell—along with proper medical treatment, of course.

Anoint a large white candle with eucalyptus essential oil and light it. If you wish, you can also add a few drops of the oil to the pool of melted wax that forms around the wick. Visualize the illness in a specific place on or in the body. See it dissolving, fading. Imagine your will as a strong wind blowing away the illness like a fog. Chant:

“Illness be gone, no more a threat.
Illness be gone, I will forget
That your presence here was ever allowed.
Illness be gone, dissolve like a cloud.”

Repeat this process every day as desired by extinguishing and relighting the candle, or just let the candle burn out.

Heartwings Love Note 802 Thankfully

Heartwings says, “Giving thanks is something to do all year long.”

Following a practice I began in my late thirties I give thanks for my blessings on a daily basis. I began doing this after a phone conversation with a friend. She told me that rather than complain about what I thought I was lacking, I needed to be grateful for what I did have: good food to eat, a roof over my head, a comfortable bed to sleep in, warm clothes to wear, and so on. She reminded me how important it was to give thanks for the simple yet necessary blessings we take for granted. I believed her. Now these many years later, I am most grateful to her. An attitude of gratitude leads to true happiness.

When we focus on whatever there is in our lives that brings happiness, healing, kindness or friendship we are emphasizing that aspect. When we complain about our difficulties we are focusing on our lacks and our problems, most of which we can do little to nothing about. There is no happiness in dwelling on our misfortunes. When we do emphasize what is good in our lives it seems magically to increase. Giving thanks for that which we have as well as that which we do not have is an important key to a good life.

Gratitude for the bounty in our lives has been a theme of harvest celebrations throughout the ages. The Pilgrims did not host the first Thanksgiving ever, just their first one here in this country. Giving thanks to a higher power is common to nearly every religious or spiritual path. Most paths have some kind of ceremony to honor the powers that be that provide them with support and sustenance. If the rains do not fall or the sun does not shine our food will not grow. It’s as simple as that. I know how grateful I am to the market and the farm stand that provide me with good, fresh food.

More than anything else however, I am grateful for the love that has come to me over the years. I have been extremely fortunate in the people I have met and with whom I have had the opportunity to interact. My friends, past, present and even future are important to me. I am thankful for each and every one. While some of those have vanished from my life, the experience of that love remains to bless me with its warmth and the joyful memories of happy times together. No matter how something may end, what matters is the good that came of it. I am grateful for that good and for the dear ones still in my life.

Wishing you every joy at Thanksgiving and always,

Blessings and Best Regards, Tasha

What are you thankful for? Do share your thoughts with me, I so love to hear from my readers and will always answer back as soon as I can.

Magee Haunted House 8

Sippi parked overlooking a gully down the road about a mile from the burnt out mansion. The beat up Chevy had crashed into a tree. Its front end was smashed and leaking oil.
Blackie and I were leashed, sitting in Sippi’s back seat while she and Raven went to investigate. I knew I was needed. But who listens to a dog.
The various officers were milling around measuring, taking pictures, testing soil.
“Keep those dogs away from my crime scene,” a burly State Police sergeant yelled at Chief Mallory.
“He won’t pee on your parade,” Chief Mallory chuckled. “Magee’s got an innate sense.
The Sergeant glared at us as we looked out Sippi’s cruiser window. “I’ve heard all about Magee,” he groused. “Nothing but trouble if you ask me.
Chief Mallory shook his head. “How many murderers have you brought to justice Sgt. Hacksaw?” The sergeant glared at us, huffed and stalked off.
An ambulance approached, causing him to turn his attention away from Blackie and me. I’d heard about that Sergeant. Apparently he and his wife bred and raised cats.
We watched as Raven and Sippi took pictures with their devices of the body in the back seat of the Chevy. “Arm punctures, scarred features. My guess is heavy drug use,” Sippi said.
Raven nodded. ” Riddled by bullets. Died like a mobster, that’s for sure.”
“Hard to tell his age.” Sippi said.
The ambulance doors opened and two orderlies lifted out a stretcher, hauled out the body and zipped it into a body bag. They loaded the stretcher back into the ambulance.
Sippi came over to her cruiser, opened the back door and we jumped out. She took two treats from her pocket, giving us each one. Then she unleashed us.
Chief Mallory joined her. “Let them sniff the perimeter but not the Chevy until the State boys finish what they’re doing.”
“Hear that you two? Stay away from the Chevy.” “But don’t run off where I can’t see you Magee. Nothing funny like last time.”
I wagged my tail.
Blackie woofed and sent me a bunch of thoughts. Now we could get to work.
Blackie lowered her head, sniffed and scurried a few yards into the tall grasses. Then she stopped and as the ambulance drove away put her nose into the air as if seeking a direction.
A motorcycle came down the road and stopped at the crime scene. A tall woman took off her helmet and shook out her blond hair. She walked toward Mallory.
He looked at her and frowned. “Hello Heidi,” nice to see you.”
“You’ve put on weight,” she smiled. “Bachelor cooking no doubt. What are you doing in my jurisdiction?”
“Looking for escaped convicts,” He turned and introduced Holly to Sippi and Raven. “Holly’s the Deputy Sheriff for the county.” He turned back to Holly. “If you look over at the Chevy you’ll see your old pal Sergeant Hacksaw. ”
She shrugged. “No friend of mine,” she said.
“Nice Harley,” Raven said. “Been driving long?”
“Since I was a kid.” She turned to Chief Mallory. “What are you looking for, Tom? Don’t tell me you’ve been hoodwinked into believing that stuff about the Croft treasure.”
Mallory huffed. “Treasure?”
She took off her gloves. “Ebenezer Croft was said to have hidden his gold and jewels near here before he and his men went to go fight for the Union Army. Unfortunately for the rest of us they didn’t survive the Battle of Bull Run.”
Raven nodded. “You know a lot.”
“”I’m a Croft descendant,” she said. “Who wouldn’t like to find family treasure?”
“Any other Croft kin looking?” Mallory asked. He took out his device and I heard him order aerial recognizance.
He called us over. “Ok Sherlock,” he pointed toward the woods. “Lets take a little walk around to see what we might discover.” He beckoned to Heidi and together they walked with us.
Blackie ran ahead, plopped down on the path and lay very still. Then her thoughts said, “There are two with guns who watch and will attack the police.”
I was focused on a crow flying overhead. I had seen that crow when ghostly hands carried me through that basement passage and put me outside. Here it was again. It swooped lower then again up high, cawing. “Beware. Danger,” it cawed..
Mallory seemed very happy to see this woman. He began filling her in on the case, but he didn’t mention the diamonds we had found.
I was getting impatient. We were getting closer to the woods. I had to warn Chief Mallory about the ambush ahead. But all his attention was on Heidi.
She was saying something about feeding him a home cooked meal.
Finally He looked down at me. “Pick up anything Sherlock?
Usually that question was accompanied by a treat, a spicy shrimp ball buys my utmost cooperation. But not this time.
I had to warn him. I tugged at his pants wanting him to stop and turn away from the woods. But he kept walking. Finally in desperation I gave him my most alarmed bark. the equivalent of “take cover.”
“He’s telling you something,” Heidi said.
“Stop it,” He pulled at his pants leg. I know what it is. I didn’t give you a treat like Bopp does.”
I barked and ran back toward the Chevy, then looked back at him.”
“Wrong direction Magee. ” He pointed with his finger. “This way.”
If we went that way it was deeper into the woods and the ambush. How could I tell him? Then I saw Marjorie. Her outlines were wavy and I could see right through her. She reached out and tickled both Heidi’s and Mallory’s necks. necks.
Mallory started to laugh, but then looked confused. “Why am I laughing?”
Heidi laughed too. “Why Tom I never thought of you as so affectionate.”
He started to shake his head then he smiled. “Every time I see you I get befuddled.”
She took his hand. “I’d like you to help me find old Ebenezer’s treasure. I’ll share all the old family papers with you.”
“Wait,” Mallory said, “Do you suppose one of the convicts might be another relative looking for it?”
Heidi looked thoughtful. “Could be. It’s a big family.” She looked at me and smiled. “Magee seems to be reluctant to go this way.”
Good, she got the message. Now I barked louder and ran back hoping Mallory would finally understand.
“I think he wants you to change direction. I think we need to go back to the crime scene.”

Crystal Ritual and the New Moon

A ritual is simply a routine or regimen done to bring about change.

When the moon is NEW, this is considered the time of birthing. Birthing new ideas, intention and seeding new ventures. This is also called the dark of the moon. This time also marks the beginning of a major new cycle in your life. It is not yet a definitive separation with the past, but it is a time when old familiar patterns lose energy and you instinctively feel an impulse for creating new beginnings. Setting your intentions and releasing them out to the Universe to manifest and express.

These are a few of my favorite crystals for the New Moon:

Black Moonstone: is a great crystal for finance and prosperity. It will help attract a gradual increase in your finances and you will begin to feel more financial security. Like the new moon, changing to the full moon, black moonstone is symbolic of this “new moon beginning” and the ideal time to plant the seeds of good intentions in order to watch them grow. Black moonstone will help to improve concentration, particularly in frenzied workplaces. Your home and relationships will feel more grounded and settled when black moonstone is in use. It enhances intuition and inner knowing and connects you to understanding your feelings and emotions. Black Moonstone can be used for general psychic protection. Black Moonstone goes well with rainbow moonstone, black obsidian, jet and labradorite. Black moonstone will also help to increase stamina. It is associated with the earth element, the zodiac sign of Aquarius and the Root Chakra. It has been theorized that black moonstone can protect against the effects of x-rays, radiation and electromagnetic energies. This healing crystal is particularly good for the colon, kidneys, liver, spleen and stomach and female reproductive organs. It can also be helpful for stroke recovery and brain function. It can be used for painkilling rituals. This crystal can be used to help clumsy or accident prone children.

Obsidian: is actually natural glass that is formed when hot lava is submerged in water. This is a strong grounding stone and is known as “the protector”. It is said to “mirror one’s soul. This stone brings about objectivity, dis-attachment and is grounding. It reduces fantasy and escapism. Absorbs and dissolves anger, criticism, fear, and therefore is protective. This unusual black stone absorbs darkness and converts it to white light energy. It is a warm and friendly stone, which is used at the Root Chakra, encouraging ones survival instincts and is grounding. Black obsidian brings higher Chakra light into lower ones; cleanses and uplifts. Changes fear into flexibility with the advent of change.

Onyx: balances and grounds thoughts, emotions and helps with stabilizing sex drive. Onyx is believed to promote fidelity. Controls emotional intensity. This androgynous stone is excellent for centering/aligning total person with higher powers. It therefore, essentially balance yin and yang energies. Banishes grief, enhance self control, helps with wise decision-making, encourages happiness and good fortune. Can be used to provide a “peek” into the future, helps one to follow the path alone, promotes personal strength, understand the reality of the moment, become the master of one’s own future. Onyx comes in many colors ie: black stimulates the Root Chakra and is grounding.

Black Pearl: is in tune with emotions, water, and women, especially pregnant women, pearls are a symbol of pure heart and mind; innocence and faith. Because it is from the sea, it has watery and lunar elements, therefore it is used for balancing emotions, especially for water signs. Absorbing by nature, this mineral absorbs thoughts and emotions and because of this, must be used with caution. If you feel excessively negative while wearing a pearl, it will hold that energy until it is cleansed. Remember, Pearl is the result of layer upon layer of substance produced to combat irritation. Pearl can cool and soothe. It is very nurturing. Pearl is a cold and independent mineral, which is used, ironically at the Heart, Solar Plexus and Sacral/Spleen Chakra, to stimulate the heart, liver and emotional issues, digestion, immunity weakness and emotional stress. Pearls are mentally stabilizing, generate beautiful skin and clear toxins. Divers wear pearls for shark protection.

Tektite: is a type of natural glass, chemically and structurally unique, of meteoric origin. Tektites are found on earth within a narrow equatorial belt 80 degrees wide. They have been found in Thailand, Australia, Vietnam and the Philippines. Tektites usually have a heavily pitted surface. Many have the appearance of being stretched while in a molten state. They appear black, but when held up to the light, you can sometimes see a golden tint in translucent areas around the edges. Assists one in attaining knowledge and learning lessons throughout the travels of life. Balances the feminine/masculine, provides insight, strengthens one’s energy field. Can stimulate thought transmissions.

Start by cleansing your crystals.

Pass them through incense, running water, or in flower petals. It is important to know what type of crystal can undergo which kind of cleansing.

Manifesting

Hold your crystals at heart level. Send them love and honor, mentally.
For what purpose will you use them for? State your intention. When you feel your message is programmed into your crystals, lower them from the level of your heart.

A new moon mediation is a journey into your deeper self, your true self, your real pure note, your spiritual resonance. It is a healing meditation on a multi-dimensional level.

A time of new beginnings. It is about starting afresh, planting new seeds and connecting to your higher self. It is a self healing and self discovery meditation. It empowers you with the knowledge and fact that once you can attend to yourself you can attend to others with ease. It is about renewing yourself, rebirthing new ideas and activating creative life force in yourself and around you. It is a very rejuvenating meditation. This means to plant new seeds e.g. dreams, goals, ideas, inspiration, affirmation, incantations, mission, vision.

These seeds will grow and flower into your garden of dreams, goals, ideas, inspiration, affirmation, incantations, mission and/or vision. This meditation is for you, for ‘spiritual’ planting, for bringing in the new and creating freshness in your life.

As always the best place to perform this meditation is within your meditation space. A clear peaceful space where you can meditate deeply, and free of disturbance. Prepare your meditation space with incense and gentle music if you wish along with a candle. Once your meditation space is set and ready get into a comfortable seated position, and close your eyes.

Using 4 obsidian stones (or any of the stones suggested above, place them in your meditative space, either on your alter or table.

OR

on the floor, so that you are able to sit in the middle of them.

You can then use a 5th obsidian stone, or a master stone (a crystal that is your favorite to work with or one which calls to you.)

Trace the outline of the crystal circle with your master stone (either on the table or sitting within your meditation circle.)

Then place your master stone in the center of the circle. (If it is on your table place it in the center. If you are meditating on the floor, hold it with you – in your dominant hand – sitting in your circle.)

Working with your Moon Intention

If you placed your circle on a table or alter, you can write down your intention on a piece of paper then place it under your master stone in the center of the circle.

If you are sitting in your circle, your intention is in your head.

NOW, spend time with your circle, intention and your crystals.

NOW, gentle breath work can be done, by breathing in and out. On the inhale, take in your intention… on your exhale, release your intention to the Universe.

Spend the time you desire to feel grounded, calm and relaxed. You will know instinctually how much time you need. When you are finished, you can end with a deep breath, a prayer, a large sigh… or simply open your eyes. Your intention has been noted!

Helping The World Every Day
By Madisyn Taylor

We can all vow to make the world a better place one day at a time by being our true authentic selves.
Each of us is more than capable of helping the world, despite our fears and limitations and the uncertainty that holds us back. It is commonly accepted that it is impossible to make a difference without unlimited funding or free time, yet most healing, cleansing, and spreading of joy is accomplished in a matter of minutes. If we vow to make the world a better place one day at a time, the true significance of small good deeds reveals itself to us. We come to see that we can be of service without dedicating our lives to recognized charities or giving up the pleasures we enjoy. The warmth we feel when we help the world is only a tiny part of the affirmative transformations that take place when we make altruism a part of everyday existence.

We make our homes, workplaces, communities, and countries better and brighter when we think positive thoughts that echo outward, give donations of time or money, smile at everyone we meet, and lend those in need of aid our assistance. As we learn, we inadvertently improve the universe because we can only be truly involved when we are informed. Even enthusiastically sharing ideas with others generates positive energy that then serves as the motivation for more tangible change. Selfless and helpful deeds remind us that we exercise some degree of control over a world that can seem chaotic at times. Even the smallest of such deeds is a demonstration of the fact that we are capable of changing the world in a positive way. So much negative energy is generated by the suffering, pain, and close-mindedness we are regularly exposed to, but we can counteract it in a constructive way by thinking and acting altruistically when opportunities to do so arise.

Helping the world often takes no more than a moment, just a wish for the world is a beautiful gesture and can be done by even the busiest of people effortlessly. The gift you give each day need not be grand or attention-worthy because the broader benefits are the same no matter the literal repercussions. Once a day, you can affect reality, and you can reap the rewards of knowing that you are making the world a better place, day by day.

Taking A Break From What You Are Doing
By Madisyn Taylor

Sometimes finding the answer is as easy as taking a break and stepping back from the situation.
Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in our thoughts that we wind up going round in round in circles, finding it difficult to concentrate on things and, because we are so distracted, not really accomplishing much. There may be signals–mental, emotional, and physical–that tell us we need to slow down and relax. Since we are so involved in things that are external to us, however, we may easily overlook what is really going on inside of us. It is during these times that we need to step back from the things that occupy our minds and take time out to connect with our inner self, giving our minds, bodies, and spirits the time they need to reenergize and heal.

At first it may seem that by taking a break we may not be as productive as we would initially like. In reality, a healthy period of rest is something that gives us a real sense of the unlimited nature of our true potential. Spending a couple of minutes walking outside, doing a few yoga poses, meditating, or simply becoming attuned to the rising and falling of our breath enables us to let go of our worries. This act brings our focus back to the things that are truly essential for us, such as our sense of oneness with the universe and our inner peace and well-being. As we begin to get in touch with this part of ourselves, we will find that our usual everyday troubles and worries become less critical and that we not only have much more room in our lives to really reflect on the issues that mean the most to us, but we are also able bring to all the situations we encounter a much more positive and healthy outlook.

Giving ourselves respite from our daily concerns is like giving a gift to ourselves. By stepping away from the problems that seem to saturate our thoughts, we lessen the weight of our troubles and instead become more receptive to the wisdom and answers the universe has to offer us.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

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 houses within those signs.

Outlines are longer versions; consists of every possible detail 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. Even if you know or don`t know your Decan; I recommend, please read all three Decan.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Aries
Personal theme: I am!!
Fire & cardinal sign: March 21 — April 19

Your horoscope for this week:

Ordinarily you`d battle situations as unreasonable as they are unfair. However, the planetary setup indicates these aren`t yours to deal with; but you can discuss your concerns with those who actually are in charge. Not only will you have done something, what you learn could get you thinking about changes you could make. Once you`re viewing things from that angle, your options will be much broader.

You`re torn between your personal and professional lives. Your romantic partner feels slighted. Instead of treating them like a second-class citizen, reassess your priorities. Arranging a romantic outing is a good idea. Are you single? You will remain so until you make some changes. Stop giving the best of yourself to your job. Even if you have your own business, it`s important to strike a healthy work-life balance. Taking a course of study and learning will be a welcome distraction from work.

It`s likely to be all systems go as of late Tuesday. Before then, taking the time to make lists and being clear as to what you want to achieve would be wise. As of mid-week, Neptune stations and the Sun moves into another of the Fire signs. It`s from then that energy levels are likely to rise. Coincident with this, the Sun makes special aspect to Uranus presently traveling through your sign. This should give you an edge in discussions – particularly were professional matters are concerned. By Friday, how you work within a team, together with preparations for a meeting to take place before the end of the month, will likely need particular attention. Taking time to read through a proposal or document and not just skimming for facts would surely get you noticed and possibly result in you being considered for a special role.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Taurus
Personal theme: I have!!
Earth & fixed sign: April 20 — May 20

Your horoscope for this week:

Recent discussions, ideas or offers were promising; but things aren`t falling into place as easily as you`d hoped. Obviously, this is frustrating. Still, the resulting delays are preventing you from finalising arrangements that you`d only need to change, possibly several times. That seems worrying. However, while certain developments might, indeed, cause concern, many will involve thrilling new ideas or ventures, and appear suddenly.

Pushing yourself too hard will result in burnout. You have too much responsibility on your plate. It`s time to delegate tasks to others. If you don`t scale back your schedule, you`ll fail to deliver on a promise. This could cause an important relationship to fall by the wayside. Set new goals and ask a good friend or romantic partner to hold you accountable. Are you single? You`ll meet someone special at a religious, cultural or educational event. Someone from a totally different creed or culture will be hard to resist.

The Sun leaves your opposite sign mid-week. Before it does, it`s probable that you will be put under pressure. Others may feel you could do things better or faster. This is arguably not the moment to display any stubbornness but instead to show that any delays are a direct consequence of your own quality control systems. Perhaps you know from experience that moving too quickly is costly in the long run. Neptune stations mid-week just as the Sun changes signs. The combined effect offers both a moment`s pause and the opportunity to listen carefully to an expert. It may be that with their guidance, that before the weekend, you will identify a new goal one: that you know to be attainable before the first weekend of December. With that in place you could give attention to a marketing or advertising exercise. Imperative here may be having good database management to deal with information as it arrives.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Gemini
Personal theme: I think!!
Air sign: May 21 — June 20

Your horoscope for this week:

Only days ago, exciting plans, most involving others, were proceeding at an amazing rate. Since then, both practical obstacles and the objections of certain individuals have slowed, if not halted, progress. Annoying as this is, this delay both forces you to review your ideas and, even better, means you`ll be ready to explore the thrilling ideas, offers or encounters that appear during November`s last week.

A romantic relationship is more trouble than it`s worth. You`re tired of trying to satisfy the whims of an unreasonable partner. If you`re single, stop putting pressure on yourself to be with someone. The sooner you embrace your freedom, the happier you`ll be. Pour your energy into improving your health. Taking more exercise, eating nutritious food and getting more sleep will give you an attractive glow. Doors that used to be sealed shut will suddenly swing open for you. Celebrate.

Saturn, moving through your opposite sign, moves ever closer toward the galactic centre. Before it leaves Sagittarius, you could feel under singular pressure. It`s arguably important that you spend the first half of this week ensuring that you are in best physical and mental fitness for the challenges of the next few weeks. These should surely not be seen as negatives but opportunities to steer things in a direction you enjoy. True, you might need to wait a few weeks before the pleasure factor takes hold. Note though that whatever the challenges of this week, that the planets do move on i.e. nothing stays the same forever. Note too that with Neptune coming to a station in another of the Mutable signs just as the Sun moves into Sagittarius mid-week, that the blinkers could come off and, in mindful state, you see possibilities that have been elusive since the solar eclipse back in August.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Cancer
Personal theme: I feel!!
Water & cardinal sign: June 21 — July 22

Your horoscope for this week:

Obviously, you`d rather resolve practical or personal issues swiftly; but, these need time, mostly because so much is in transition. While, obviously, you`d like reassurance things will go well, there`ll be numerous twists and turns before anything is settled. Take advantage of this to discuss your concerns in depth but also to listen to others` suggestions. What seems least likely could turn out surprisingly well.

Your family is putting pressure on you to make changes in your personal life. Their concerns are valid. Your nearest and dearest are tired of seeing you settle for less than the best. If you`re in a troubled situation, break it off. There are worse things in life than being single or having to put up a host of day to day trials and tribulations. With the help of your relatives, you can make things better. If you`ve been looking for a new job, you`ll find one that involves lots of travel. Being paid to see the world will lift your spirits.

Think new ways of working. True, there may be more work headed your way. The good news though is that the combination of Jupiter in another of the Water signs, Scorpio and the Sun`s move into Sagittarius on Wednesday, should coincide with you finding faster ways of tackling regular tasks. Yes, delegating may be part of this approach. Inspired, – most likely someone born under either Scorpio or Capricorn, – you could come up with a plan that reduces one workload to allow you to give attention to another. Recall that Mercury will be in the working zone of your solar chart all the way through until early next year. This brings with it the likelihood of much to-ing and fro-ing and yes, in excess of what might normally be expected at this time of year. Harnessing resources will surely be imperative. Indeed, a positive way of working with this week`s energies may be to arrive at some kind of contractual arrangement which, even if it`s not signed off until closer to the end of the month, provides a realistic framework to cover you through until 2018.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Leo
Personal theme: I will!!
Fire & fixed sign: July 23 — August 22

Your horoscope for this week:

After a productive but demanding period involving issues on the domestic or work front, you`ve achieved wonders; but you need a break. Happily, the move by your ruler the Sun to accent what and who you most enjoy in life, on Wednesday, shifts both the mood and circumstances. Knowing that`s coming, tackle any remaining practical details now, while you`ve time and know what needs to be done.

A power struggle at work is weighing on your mind. You`re tired of obsessing about your job in your leisure time. Filing an official report could turn the tide in your favour. There`s no reason you should put up with difficult situations at work. While your professional life has been challenging, your love life is flourishing. If you`re single, you`ll meet someone special at a party. Not only will you have lots in common, but you`ll make great travel companions. If you have a partner, you`ll get a lovely gift.

The good news is that mid-week, the Sun joins Mercury in an area of your solar chart associated with fun and creativity. Even momentarily, this should bring light relief to difficulties. True, before next weekend there may be matters requiring focused attention. These may well be contractual obligations that must be realised before the end of the month if you`re not to incur costs. It might be as well to be prepared for the fact that a colleague, though willing to support your plans, is held back by lack of cash flow. Those in business could find this a tough period to negotiate. It would be wise though not to underestimate your ability to go around difficulties. In particular, and in discussion with someone born under one of the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, you could arrive at a negotiating position which, before the end of the month, delivers agreement.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Virgo
Personal theme: I analyse!!
Earth sign: August 23 — September 22

Your horoscope for this week:

Usually you`ve a knack for knowing when arrangements can be regarded as settled or vital facts are missing; but with the foundation on which plans are based shifting, you`re unsure what`s what. Forget about struggles to impose order on changes and, instead, keep both plans and your thinking flexible enough you can ride out, if not take advantage of, events as unexpected as, ultimately, they`ll be welcome.

Spending lots of money won`t fill an emotional void. If a child or romantic partner are demanding expensive gifts, it`s time to have a serious talk. Instead of trying to buy their affection, commit to work on your relationship. Enjoy going out together and keep distractions to a minimum. Turn off your mobile and don`t invite anyone else along on these trips. Having a rewarding home life will prompt you to make some healthy changes. Your diet and exercise routine will improve, giving you an attractive glow.

You might recall that Mercury is spending a longer time than usual in another of the Mutable signs, Sagittarius. It doesn`t leave that sign and the base of your solar chart until early 2018. Between now and then, asset management and, in particularly property matters, will surely require extra attention. This may well be apparent from Wednesday when the Sun to moves into that sign. Coincident with this ingress, Neptune stations in your opposite sign. A strong possibility is that someone close will reveal a hope or dream that captures your imagination. Though true, the practicalities could bring headaches before the weekend, you might also agree that what`s proposed is worthy of your attention. There is strong possibility that those who work or live some distance away will have particular impact on your thinking. Indeed, one of their long-term plans could well offer you an opportunity and security.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Libra
Personal theme: I balance!!
Air & cardinal sign: September 23 — October 22

Your horoscope for this week:

Disappointing as the realisation that certain plans or, possibly, alliances you`d set your heart on won`t work out, you`re actually relieved. That`s because you`ve not only learnt a lot but also, as circumstances have changed, it`s clear these were intriguing but flawed. Let them go. In saying farewell, you`re making the way for something better, and that something will appear in a surprisingly short time.

It will be impossible to deal graciously with a difficult relative. Although you want to respect someone who is older, they aren`t giving you the same consideration. The next time you are expected to obey their commands, you should stand your ground. It`s time to set some healthy boundaries. A lucrative job is on the way. This position will allow you to work from home at least a few days a week. This is your chance to establish a comfortable domestic life that is free of stress. Embrace this chance for freedom.

It seems you`re venturing into new waters – as a result of which, financial matters might require extra attention. It could also be that you are determined to complete a project before the end of November but that you will have to fight distractions – especially from Wednesday. As of mid- week, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, highlighting contacts with neighbours and siblings. It may be that at least one is considering uprooting. They might welcome the opportunity to discuss options with you. Obviously much would depend on your actual birthday but it may be that you consider staking a claim either to a place or a portion of time. The important thing here is ensuring that you focus on something that is clearly important to your overall life journey. It might also be that securing costs is important but that by placing a deposit now you realise a good deal.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Scorpio & Ophiuchus
Personal theme: I desire!!
Water & fixed signs: October 23 — November 21

Your horoscope for this week:

While there`s no way around the unsettling realisations and dramas triggered by the Scorpio New Moon, combined with Mars`s clash with your ruler Pluto, on the 18th and 19th, these force unspoken issues out in the open. While some rouse vulnerable feelings, others expose unspoken facts, which, in turn, explain a lot. Resist the temptation to confront anybody or make sudden changes. For now, wait, watch, and learn.

You feel alienated from a group of people. If every time you enter the room, everyone goes quiet don`t try to ingratiate yourself to these people, make a break and form your own social circle. Be selective about the company you keep. You will hit it off with accomplished people who march to the beat of their own drummer. You`ve been blessed with extraordinary gifts; you can`t expect to lead an ordinary life. Once you have friends who believe in your abilities, you`ll make progress in your career.

The Sun leaves your sign on Wednesday just as Neptune arrives at its station in another of the Water signs. Make no mistake, the impact you made as the Sun moved through your sign this year was probably extraordinary. Others should now see your special qualities. In particular, they may be aware of exactly what it is that you enjoy doing and the degree to which you`re prepared to work to achieve a goal. Until Saturn leaves neighbouring Sagittarius on December 20, reaping financial reward might not be possible. This week is perhaps rather more about watching how others are reacting to your recent successes and the doors they open for you. Hold on to this positivity even if it seems that an obstacle will have to be overcome before the end of November. Note too, that a colleague, most likely born under Capricorn, is ready to fight your corner – and in style. You may well be right in thinking that you don`t need to say any more. That said, letting that person know that you are appreciative – perhaps through a gift or action would be a nice touch.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Sagittarius
Personal theme: I see!!
Fire sign: November 22 — December 21

Your horoscope for this week:

Usually, you`re the one encouraging others to take a chance on the new or unfamiliar; but at the moment you`re anxious and unsure why. Actually, with Mercury, in Sagittarius, retrograde from December 3rd to 23rd, shakeups in arrangements and your own priorities could lead to insights, some surprising. For now, therefore, focus more on what must end than trying to organise long range plans.

You`ll have to scale back your social calendar for the sake of work. Although putting in long shifts makes you upset, it`s critical to your career success. When you make personal sacrifices for your boss, you`ll gain their trust. Be prepared to receive bigger and better assignments. A passionate encounter will give you a new lease on life. This relationship will prompt you to reassess your priorities. Instead of trying to please everyone else all the time, you`ll start putting your own needs first.

Ahead of the Sun`s arrival in your sign on Wednesday, (coinciding with Neptune`s station at the very base of your solar chart), there are matters requiring attention. It may be that someone born under one of the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn is exasperated. They may feel you should have taken action about certain matters much earlier. Conversations regarding property and where and how to live might also demand attention. Though this is perhaps not the first time that these matters have been under review, circumstances might be such that you`re now willing to at least consider a proposal which even a few months ago would have seemed inappropriate. Though true, with Saturn continuing to make its stately way through your sign, a decision might not be reached for some weeks, between Wednesday and Saturday you could do some useful research regarding options and costs.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Capricorn
Personal theme: I use!!
Earth & cardinal sign: December 22 — January 19

Your horoscope for this week:

Ordinarily you`ll organise changes and set new goals without much drama. Yet plans that made sense only recently no longer do, leaving you with lots of questions and few answers. Actually, this is preparing you for the insights that result from the two encounters between the ideas planet Mercury and your ruler Saturn, on 28 November and 6 December. Only after that will future plans be clear.

An oppressive authority figure will make you very frustrated. It`s important to find a healthy outlet for your tensions. Getting out of a toxic professional situation is critical to your wellbeing. Pour your energy into finding a job that makes you feel productive and appreciated. Resist the temptation to keep this situation secret from your nearest and dearest. Confide in your friends. They`ll suggest helpful coping mechanisms. There`s no reason to isolate yourself. Your loved ones are eager to help you.

Whether you`re furious, outraged, or simply highly charged, following Saturday`s New Moon you could move swiftly to accomplish certain tasks. At some level, you may be aware of a mid-week change in the cosmic weather. It`s then that both Neptune stations and the Sun arrives in neighbouring Sagittarius. Between then and next weekend a new arrival in the workplace promises both fresh ideas and the impetus to conclude a task that has been around since the start of the year and which appears never ending. It might soon be necessary to cut losses. With the Moon in your sign between Tuesday and Thursday, your voice could carry extra weight. Though obviously much would depend on your personal chart, it`s through this period that others are most likely to take notice of your wise counsel and advice.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Aquarius
Personal theme: I know!!
Air & fixed sign: January 20 — February 18

Your horoscope for this week:

You`ve been encouraged to take recent ideas or offers further. You`re unsure this is wise and, equally, are questioning others` advice. Actually, this is being triggered by powerful aspects to your ruler Uranus, all month, which are behind this extensive review of who`s in your life, your plans and your priorities. While you`re addressing these issues now, you`re unlikely to resolve them until early January.

An embarrassing secret will come to light. If you`ve exaggerated your experience or accomplishments, be honest. Admit the deception and accept the consequences. It`s possible you`ll be dismissed from a job or abandoned in a relationship. Treat this as a learning experience. You`re tired of living a lie. A good job will be offered to you. Don`t balk at taking a pay cut. It will take time to prove yourself, so be patient. Eventually, you`ll reach a level of success you never dreamed possible.

Whether because you`re outraged or motivated by someone with enormous energy, the start of this week could find you extra busy. It may be that you`re tempted to seize on a potential bargain. A further possibility is that reconnecting with someone you worked with in the past also brings hope of future alliance. Neptune stations on Wednesday just as the Sun moves into Sagittarius. From then, the cosmic winds should be firmly behind you. True, this might involve a scrabble to get paperwork together before the weekend. With this done however, you could soon be setting off on a new adventure. Though thoughts of fresh challenges are not unusual for this time of year for those of your sign, seeds sown over next weekend, -and which are clearly career -related – could bring you to the attention of someone able to help before the end of the month.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Pisces
Personal theme: I believe!!
Water sign: February 19 — March 20

Your horoscope for this week:

Wrestling with questions about your own life and helping others with their battles is overwhelming. Pressing as these matters seem, things are still in transition so, really, there`s no rush. Actually, you`ve ample time to delve into crucial matters, and in the kind of depth you prefer. Since little will be clear until early in the new year, take it slowly, and you`ll enjoy the learning process.

Neither a lender nor a borrower be. Mixing friendship with finance will result in misery. If you owe someone money, do everything in your power to pay it back as soon as possible. Your relationship may be permanently damaged, but at least you will be relieved of this burden. If you`ve incurred a loss, you should write it off and move on. An exciting career opportunity is on the horizon. Don`t be afraid to take charge of an important division. You`ll be a resounding success in this role.

Following on from Saturday`s New Moon, it surely won`t be long before you`re ready to venture into new waters. Curiously, Neptune stations in your sign just as the Sun arrives at the apex of your solar chart on Wednesday. This may be when you make your move. That though, could be as a result of a conversation with someone born under either Aries, Libra or Capricorn. What these three signs have in common is the desire to make things happen. To implement plans though might well require your particular expertise. Though this in turn might lead you down yet another research path, before the weekend an outline could be agreed. Another feature of this week may be the need to get rid of items that are in some way dragging you down. An archive or clearing up project could bring enormous satisfaction when completed on Friday: the process possibly bringing extra cash your way too.

“We all come from the Goddess
And to Her we shall return
Like a drop of rain, going to the ocean”

“May the circle be open, but unbroken,
May the love of the Goddess be ever in your heart.
Merry Meet and Merry Part
And Merry Meet Again!”
