July 27, 2008
(Uncle H’s Birthday)

*Harvest Day

Today’s Tarot: Six of Cups
Today’s Fairy Oracle: Family Harmony

Sunday:
Governed by the Sun – healing, spirituality, success, strength, protection

Colors:
yellow, orange, gold, amber

The Moon:
4th quarter waning, void-of-course as of 11:52 p.m. last night, enters Gemini @ 10:55 a.m.

Waning Moon: Waning moon is when the moon appears to be shrinking in the sky, the last two weeks of the moon’s twenty-eight day cycle. Each night the light of the moon gets smaller and smaller until ultimately, the moon appears invisible and is completely out of sight. During this two weeks, it’s best for doing magickal workings to rid yourself of things, to cast away negative energies, or to break habits. If you want to keep your nails short, trim them during waning moon. Want to slow the growth of your hair? Cut it during waning moon. Want to end a certain relationship? Waning moon is best. Quit smoking? Lose weight? Waning moon lends its energies to these types of magickal workings.

Moon Void-of-Course: Just before the Moon enters a new sign, it will make one final aspect (angular relationship) to another planet. Between that last aspect and the entrance of the Moon into the next sign it is said to be void-of-course. Activities begun when the Moon is void-of-course rarely come to fruition, or they turn out very differently than planned. (source: Llewellyn’s Witches’ Datebook 2008 )

Moon in Gemini: Things begun now are easily changed by outside influence. Time for shortcuts, communication, games, and fun.  (source: Llewellyn’s Witches’ Datebook 2008 )

The Sun:
Leo – The Lion

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
This isn’t the time to go solo with your projects — teamwork is the best way to go.

Overview
Sit down with your family or coworkers and talk about the blue-sky stuff that doesn’t come up all that often. At least one person is sure to be surprised by how optimistic the rest of the group is.

Daily Extended
This is not the time to go solo with your projects. Teamwork is the best way to make good things happen in your life, now. There is real power in numbers, and it’s your task today to get together with as many other people as you can. Whether you join a group of people in order to get things done, travel to another country, or just sit around playing a board game, the crowd’s energy is where it’s at! One of the people you’ll be hooking up with today has something to teach you.

Daily Flirt:
You and your friends need to talk things over — you may be surprised to learn there’s a lot more going on between you than you’d ever have guessed. Once you all know what you want, getting it is easy.

Daily Couples:
Do something today that you’ve been been putting off; perhaps a task that your sweetie has been after you do to. Don’t say a word about it, just do it! You’ll feel great when you can cross it off your list.

Daily Singles:
Being indecisive on whether to accept an invitation could frustrate the host. Agree to attend only if you know for a fact you will be there. Otherwise, let the host know that you’re honored to be included but life is too chaotic to venture out.

Today’s Faerie Oracle: “Letting Go” (upright!)
Today’s Tarot Card: Six of Wands (Victory!)

*Planting Day

*SUMMER SOLSTICE/MIDSUMMER ~LITHA~*

A magickal holiday, and the day when the veil is thinnest between the human realm and the faerie realm! I’m really hoping to be able to write, at length, about this holiday before day’s end.

*Sun shifts from Gemini to Cancer*

Friday:
Governed by Venus – Love, friendship, reconciliation, beauty

Colors:
white, pink, rose, purple, coral

The Moon:
3rd Quarter waning in Capricorn, void of course at 2:02 p.m. US Central through 4:33 a.m. tomorrow when it shifts into Aquarius.

Waning Moon: Waning, from Full Moon to New Moon is a time for study, meditation, and magical work designed to banish harmful energies.

Moon in Capricorn: Develops strong structure. Focus on traditions, responsibilities, and obligations. A good time to set boundaries and rules.

Moon Void-of-Course: Just before the moon enters a new sign, it will make one final aspect (angular relationship) to another planet. Between that last aspect and the entrance of the Moon into the next sign it is said to be void-of-course. Activities begun when the Moon is void-of-course rarely come to fruition, or they turn out very differently than planned.

The Sun:

Gemini, “The Twins”, through 6:59 p.m. this evening, then the sun shifts to:

Cancer, “The Crab”.

View older Daily Dose posts for information on Gemini (and watch for a possible future article on the subject based on what I’ve learned thus far).

Here’s a bit on Cancer energy and influences:

The Principle of Security

Element-Water
Quality-Cardinal
Symbol-The Crab
Sun Sign Dates– June 22 to July 23 (varies according to year)
Planetary Ruler-Moon
Natural Zodiac Affinity-Fourth House

Cancer is a sensitive sign, capable of sensing the ebb and flow of it’s environment and the fluctuating moods of other people. How can it do this? Because Cancer understands emotion. Cancer understands feelings. Cancer is especially susceptible to the waxing and waning of the lunar cycles and so appears moody to those who are not aware of this fact. Cancer can play the role of either the mother hen or the little baby. Immature is a Cancer keyword. No, all Cancers are not immature! They can be the best at nurturing, or they can be extremely self-protective. It’s easy for Cancer to feel slighted. “Hey! What about me?” As an aggressive Cardinal sign they can still display a good deal of self-interest.

Cancer is one of the most tenacious signs you’ll ever meet. They know how to hang in there when the going gets tough. They may be whining and carrying on the whole time, but they don’t give up! Here of course we’re referring to the pure energy. Think of the crab in the sea. This little guy knows all about going with the flow, Cancers can be traditional too. Go with the flow. Let someone else blaze new trails. Why upset the status quo? Cancer has enough to worry about. Their safety and security for one thing. Back to the little crab in the big ocean. This is another sweet sign you don’t want to cross. Cancer can be mean as the dickens if you step over their boundaries. Ouch! They’re a defensive bunch too.

Cancers many moods will teach you the art of gentle diplomacy whether you want to learn it or not. Cancer doesn’t forget either. They have very good memories and a fondness for reliving the past, for good or ill. Don’t try to hide anything from a Cancer. Sometimes they get a gut feeling about things. They’re like your mother was. They just know stuff. They’re usually right. Many Cancers are attuned to domestic things, too.

Pure Cancer energy is …..
* sensitive to the desires and needs of others
* feels a strong need to protect themselves
* a hard time letting go of the past
* a retentive memory
* playing the role of “big mama/daddy or can be the baby
* can be overly touchy, sensitive and insecure
* avoiding upsetting the status quo
* can be very tenacious
* often quite domestic
* ups and downs/mood changes

*Note: I’ll find different sources/learning materials each day as I can, accumulate the information, and my goal is to write a piece in my own words based on what I’ve learned at the end of the month.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
Someone you care about will throw a wrench into your plans — don’t get frustrated.

Overview
See if you can just hear people out without getting your ego involved. That may be harder than you think — on a day like today, it’s far too easy to interpret every scrap of criticism as a slight!

Daily Extended
Someone you care about will throw a wrench into your plans for today, and you will have to do your best to avoid getting angry about not getting what you want. Work with them to solve their problem, and not only will you be seen as a helpful and kind person, you will help remove that old wrench and get things back on track. See — sometimes being selfless and helping someone else enables you to actually help yourself! That’s what you call a real win-win situation.

Daily Flirt:
You need to set aside any concerns you might have about credit or blame, and just accept whatever comes your way — this time. Your ego might shake with rage for a moment, but things get better quickly.

Daily Couples:
It’s one thing to listen when your sweetie tells you what they want you to do, and another to act on it. Make sure your follow through is as good as your intentions!

Daily Singles:
Is your arrogance misrepresenting you to new people? Even though you’re proud of your successes doesn’t mean you need to list them all at dinner. Let the other person discover your greatness on their own.

Career & Finance
If at first you don’t move forward, go around. You need permission, but make sure you find out from whom. The perfect authority is out there, so don’t settle for ‘no.’

*Planting Day

Moon in Capricorn, waning:: This is a Earth sign. It is a good time to sow Root plants like Beetroot, Carrots, Chives, Jerusalem Artichokes, Kohl Rabi, Onions, Radish, Spring Onions, Swedes, Turnips, but it would not be a good time to sow Flower plants like Angelica, Borage, Calabrese, Caraway, Cauliflowers, Wormwood (Source)

Here’s what I’ve learned about Gemini Energy thus far:

June 9

June 8

June 7

*Note to Self: What I’d actually like to do is to re-read all of these sources, consult a few more, then write my own understanding of Gemini influences.  It’s one thing to scout, copy, and paste – but it’s a new way of understanding to chew it up, swallow it down, and regurgitate it in my own way.  I’d like to do this with each month’s signs, actually, and add a new page to The Road Home for Zodiac.  Of course, whether or not I’ll have the time, energy, or creative flow to accomplish this is another thing entirely… but the idea is here and I’ve written it down.

Other Planetary Influences:
Mercury Direct @ 9:31 a.m. US Central

Mercury’s direct station is usually the most difficult day of the whole retrograde, and this day may be especially difficult with the Sun and Venus at a standoff with the Moon and Pluto. Not only will Mercury bring miscommunications, Internet problems, and travel problems around that day, there will also be lots jealousy and fear in our minds. Some could be rather passionate around this time, and sex could be a driving force. (source)

The influences of Mercury Direct are also dependent on where Mercury is in your chart. This source offers information on finding Mercury’s location in your natal chart, and understanding how it influences you at this time. Here’s what mine said:

7/31 to 8/29 3 Arms, Communications, & Letters

Third House

The missing letter somehow arrives. The forgotten phone call is made. A misplaced (and crucial) file is found. Something lost is found here, and that lost something deals with communications, transportation, or accounting. You’ll be glad to get the piece of the cover, unless you are the one that intentionally hid it. -)

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
In everything you do today, your enthusiasm will bubble up and make everyone smile.

Overview
Take in as much information as you can today, because your decision-making process is wholly dependent on what you know. You may want to defer action until as late in the day as possible.

Daily Extended
In everything you do today, your enthusiasm will bubble up and pour all over everyone who is around you. You will be a ‘happiness’ contagion! Spreading smiles is something you’ll do without any extra effort, and it will create a chain reaction of cheerfulness that will make people want to listen to you. This is a wonderful day for a party or any other type of group situation where good vibes are helpful. You can be the center of all the fun — if you let yourself.

Daily Flirt:
You have to act like a parent today, listening to everyone tell their sides of the story before making up your mind. It could get a little tedious after a while, but you know it’s the right thing to do.

Daily Couples:
What you see as sharing your excitement over your relationship, your friends might view as bragging. Keep in mind that while they’re happy for you, they don’t want to hear all the details!

Daily Singles:
Your resourcefulness helps put your back on track when it comes to looking for the ideal dating situation. Whether you’re on the prowl at the gym or looking at more than melons n the produce isle, you’re ready for love.

Career & Finance
All the potential in the world won’t help you if you can’t stay focused. Listen to your flittering and flickering thoughts, then concentrate.

Gemini

The Twins

Modality: Mutable
Element: Air
Ruler: Mercury
Season: Spring
3rd Sign of Zodiac
Metal: Mercury
Stone: Agate
Color: Yellow
Anatomy: Hands and arms; lungs.
Keywords: talkative, mental, adaptable, flexible, changeable, responsive, sociable, superficial

Comparison with the Gemini symbol, the Twins:
Geminis are said to have a dual nature, as symbolized by twins. This duality also represents exchange and interaction. The sign of Gemini is closely associated with exchange of ideas, communication, and trade.

The sign of Gemini is thought to be very adaptable and flexible, sometimes to the point of “being” two different personalities.

The glyph for Gemini depicts two lines joined together, showing the symbolism of the twins, and the duality of the nature of the sign.

Sun in Gemini
(The Sun is in Gemini from approximately May 21 to June 20, depending on the year).

With the Sun in Gemini, the urge for self-expression is strong. These natives are often just as interested in collecting information as they are in sharing it. Curious to a fault, Geminis have a finger in every pie.

Solar Geminis are flexible and changeable people. Their ability to adapt quickly to new situations generally gains them plenty of friends and social contacts. Usually quite clever and witty, Geminis enjoy intellectual conversations and they are easily bored if they are not getting enough mental stimulation.

Often quite adept at fitting in with others, Geminis easily adopt the moods of those around them. They are friends to people from all walks of life, and are not easily intimidated. Their ability to detach themselves can make Geminis very objective and observant, but a little difficult to get close to. Although they often have many friends, intimacy doesn’t come as easily to Solar Geminis.

It can be difficult to know what Gemini really feels at any given moment. They are often very impressionable and scattered. There is usually a nervous air to Geminis that can make more personal characters a little uneasy. It is not always intuitive to trust Geminis to be loyal or to keep secrets.

Geminis often flit about, moving quickly and keeping busy every step of the way. Many people with this position of the Sun have gained quite a bit of knowledge in their lifetimes, but they don’t often possess specialized knowledge. This is because Geminis have relatively short attention spans. Restlessness is especially common with this position of the Sun.

Usually quite affable, Geminis enjoy the “light” side of life. This tendency to take things lightly makes them quite pleasing to be around; but it can be maddening to people seeking support on the deeper issues in life.

Geminis are both interesting and interested. Their wit can be dazzling and their changeability dizzying. At the very least, Geminis will seldom bore you.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
Get beneath the surface of small talk today and zero in on what people really mean.

Overview
Life is good for you and your friends and you should find that they can help with a surprising array of issues in your life. You may feel like a kid in some ways, but it’s not so bad!

Daily Extended:
You will be able to get beneath surface-level small talk today and zero in on what people really want to talk about, quickly. Of course, whether you pursue their true intentions or not is totally up to you. If you are sensing that someone you don’t like very much has a crush on you, for example, you should switch the subject! But if you’re interested in them too, this is your chance to work a few double entendres into your conversation. Heat things up a bit!

Daily Flirt:
Try to make sure you’re connected with people today — friends, acquaintances, even exes. You may be surprised by who’s ready to help and in what ways. Your network is your strength!

Daily Couples:
Let your playful side come out tonight, and make fun and games your date night plan. Surprise your sweetie with a trip to an arcade, or a shopping spree at a toy store. Finish your night with the bedtime story of your choice.

Daily Singles:
It’s not easy to step into the dating scene without taking a few things personally. Your courageous spirit guides you through the creeps and losers to someone worthy of your time and affections.

Career & Finance:
Where does your craving for recognition come from? You yearn to be downright brilliant in order to get noticed. Instead, focus on the light shining from others to illuminate your own dark places.

Description: The search for variety is the trademark of the Gemini, who is always thinking and looking. Maddeningly inconsistent; Geminis can argue one point of view one day, and the completely opposite view the next. They symbol that represents this sign embodies the essential split in its nature of always trying to view both sides of teh coin at the same time. Geminis are true Jacks of all trades, but unfortunally if their talents are spread too thin, they may not realize their dreams.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

 Quickie
Today your charms are like magic — intoxicating when consumed in large quantities!

Overview
Open up a little more with your sweetie or coworkers — anyone who needs to know you a little better. You’re feeling the urge to divulge and they should eat it up. Everyone wins and things get better all around.

Daily Extended:
Today your charms are like magic — downright intoxicating, but dangerous in large quantities! Like putty in your hands, those to whom your charms are applied will be all too happy to comply with your wishes. You don’t have to go for the hard sell in order to get what you want. You just have to tell them how much fun they can have if they do what you are telling them to do. This power you have makes it a great day for planning a new social outing. Any idea you come up with will be met with applause.

Daily Flirt:
Open up to your friends and let them know what’s going on with you, even if it’s complicated or you don’t really get it yourself. Things are getting better, but only if you let them.

Daily Couples:
Reflect on the simple things that please you about your partner. Think about their kindness, and the many small ways they make your life better. The next time you are feeling down, remember these thoughts and be inspired.

Daily Singles:
A supportive group of friends comes in handy when you’re feeling low about everything from your love life or lack there of. Let them cheer you up how they know best.

Career & Finance:
Love and the office can be a good combination, but only when one doesn’t take place within the other. You need a romance, but be sure not to conduct it at work.
