Your Rune for July 9th is Kano reversed / Opening reversed

Kano reversed / Opening reversed



Accept that something is coming to an end and that the light is darkening. That what you try to hold onto is outlived, whether it is a friendship, or old habits.
The easier you let go, the faster you will return to stability.
For every door closing, there is another opening.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for July 9th is 55: Great Abundance

55: Great Abundance

Hexagram 55

 General Meaning: A time of abundance comes into full flower when the powers of leadership and teamwork are at their peak. The situation is like that of the sun at midday — a high noon of clarity, insight and progress. Such peak periods can be brief. Whether this refers to a national cycle, a business boom or a period of abundance, it is important to bale your hay while the sun is shining.

During a period of abundance, it benefits one to show benevolence, to share the fruit of one’s good fortune. Think of good deeds now as a hedge against times of scarcity in the future. This reading bodes well for expansion in love, the raising of children and the nurturing of a healthy family or any close-knit group.

Today’s Tarot Card for July 9th is The Anchoret

The Anchoret

This Tarot Deck: Cagliostro

General Meaning: The challenge of what has traditionally been known as the Hermit card is to be able to recognize a teacher in a humble disguise. This font of mysterious knowledge will not make it easy for the student to acquire his wisdom, as it takes time and long contemplation to fathom what he knows. He often speaks wordlessly, or in ancient and barbaric tongues, communicating with the elements, animals and Nature herself.

While the hourglass was an identifying feature on the earliest Hermit cards, more modern ones have shifted the metaphor, showing more or less light released from his lantern. In either case, the Hermit card reminds us of the value of time away from the hubbub of civic life, to relax the ego in communion with Nature

Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, July 9th

Yesterday’s intensity continues, yet our emotions may be easier to manage today. The Moon shifts into controlling Scorpio at 2:31 am EDT, helping us to contain our passions, while an early morning sextile from romantic Venus to expansive Jupiter pushes us to break out of our shells. A supportive sextile from logical Mercury to stabilizing Saturn sustains steady growth if we stop long enough to make a plan, instead of rushing ahead too soon.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your impulsive reactions may create unnecessary trouble today, especially if you don’t acknowledge someone’s existing boundaries. There are times when it’s acceptable to push back against another person’s resistance, but it must be done in a thoughtful manner. Stop to consider if you may be stepping out of line. A healthy relationship depends upon your ability to respect your partner’s needs for personal space.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You may be quite optimistic today because your ruling planet Venus receives a positive attitude adjustment from joyful Jupiter. But anyone who actually takes the time to communicate with you quickly realizes that you’ve given serious thought to your current position. Others may be surprised by how practical your analysis is now. Nevertheless, it’s still a good idea to step through your plan one more time prior to taking action.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Reality comes back into focus slowly today, and it could take a few more days before your feet are both on the ground again. Nevertheless, you are tempted to milk an opportunity for all it can offer. There’s nothing wrong with trying to make a special moment last longer, but it’s also wise to pay attention to the cues you receive from others. Balancing your current desire to have fun with following a more serious agenda will give you the best of both worlds.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Your immediate environment feels more spacious today, giving you enough room to contemplate your feelings without judgmental restrictions by others. But this current openness may be daunting if you decide to share your thoughts, because you might not be able to figure out when to stop. Thankfully, you can use your common sense to balance your need for connection with your desire to be alone.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Although you may believe that you’re being adaptable, you’re more fixed than you realize today. Unfortunately, sticking to your original agenda might bring more frustration than happiness, especially if you pass up an interesting opportunity because of your lack of flexibility. Ultimately, it’s about trusting the process; letting go of control could turn an uncomfortable situation into a positive one.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You are happily surprised by the easy flow of feelings today, but you might feel challenged to maintain a cool analytical approach to your goals. Your subjectivity may have more impact than you wish, leading you to compensate by retreating into the safety of your logic. Although you are probably more comfortable trusting your thoughts rather than your emotions, shielding yourself from the uncertainties of your desires can also lessen the joy they bring.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your ruling planet Venus receives a boost from jolly Jupiter now, lifting your spirits higher and higher. Although you want to be indulged by someone you like, there may be a reason why you won’t allow yourself to let loose and have fun. As crucial as it is to live up to your promises and fulfill your responsibilities, it’s also important to recognize that you will have more to offer others in the long run if you take some time to enjoy yourself today.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The Moon’s return to your sign brings wide mood swings, and you aren’t sure whether to feel happy or sad because each new opportunity also presents a serious obstacle. Fortunately, you should be able to work within the limits of nearly any situation now, as long as you don’t greedily expect something for nothing. Be willing to do the serious thinking, detailed planning and heavy lifting required to make the most of the present moment.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Much of what’s happening for you is hidden from others now, although they may think they know what you are experiencing. Fortunately, you realize that it’s wise to keep some of your feelings quiet, even though buoyant Jupiter helps you put on a great show of love and support. Don’t feel responsible to explain your thoughts to anyone today; it will be easier to discuss your secret worries next week.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You aren’t happy about dealing with someone if you know that he or she isn’t being honest with you. You intuitively sense when others are hiding their feelings, but you can’t confront them now or they’ll get defensive and slip deeper into denial. Your lesson now is to learn how to live with uncertainty. You won’t likely hear the rest of the story for a few days, so be patient and take comfort in knowing that you will discover the truth in time.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You like the positive vibes coming your way today because it feels as if others are encouraging you to be yourself. However, you can’t put your finger on something that doesn’t feel quite right. Unfortunately, you only grow more frustrated as you struggle to discover what you don’t know — especially because you actually might not be missing anything at all. There’s nothing you need to do now; your weird sense of uncertainty will pass. In the meantime, accept the support that you receive with humility and grace.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You are in a smooth emotional flow today, but you aren’t sure where the currents are heading. Thankfully, your destination isn’t what’s important; what matters is that you stay as open as possible so you can fully experience each moment. But this isn’t about escaping from responsibilities, for you still must fulfill your obligations. Don’t overanalyze what’s happening; your primary job now is to stay in touch with what’s in your heart.

New Moon Report for July 9th – Uranus Retrograde

Uranus Retrograde

Saturday, July 9

Revolution begins within when this radical planet turns retrograde. Freedom is not something that’s measured by what others allow us to do but comes from the liberty that we give ourselves. Uranus’ 5-month reversal could delay some external breakthroughs, but helps us recognize resistance so that we can free ourselves from self-imposed limitations.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You will be attacked and beaten by a group of Nuns. When a baffled pair of mounted urban police drag them off you, they will refuse to say why they were attacking you, and will sulk.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You will have more psychotronic energy today than usual. I recommend that you direct it towards the fridge. There’s something alive in there.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Beware of clams, today.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Stop slouching, and sit up straight! How do you expect to get ahead in the world if you pay no attention to proper posture?
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
While cracking your knuckles today, you will be a bit startled to hear a “ping” sound rather than a “pop.” That’s a bad habit, anyway.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
When you were young, your heart was an open book. You used to say “live and let live.” But if this ever-changing world, which we live in, makes you give it a miss, say “live and let die.” Or something.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Excellent time to take up weasel ranching. Or at least to claim that’s what you do, at parties.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You will find yourself using a very old spreadsheet program, soon. So old, in fact, that the columns have to be either Doric, Ionic, or Corinthian.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
A package will arrive for you today, from a distant relative in Tibet. Scarlet-robed assassins will begin following you.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Stay out of the Cheez Doodles today.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Don’t you owe someone a thank-you note? If not, send one anyway — that’s always fun.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Time to commit some random acts of kindness. I have developed an algorithm for this. The next time someone asks you for a quarter (or any small coin), take one out of your pocket, and toss it in the air. Heads, give it to them. Tails, put it back in your pocket, and tell them you haven’t got any. Or whatever – remember, the important thing is to be RANDOM.
