Almanac For Saturday 12 October 2013 (Saturn)

Saturday 12 October 2013 (Saturn)

Moon Phase – waxing – First Quarter (at 12:02 BST) – Moon in Aquarius at 18:59 BST

First Quarter of the Moon

A stressful period of time when there is a strong desire to accomplish something, to change, and to show oneself. However, before undertaking anything, first stop and think: is it really needed? Obstacles multiply at this time and contradictions sharpen. Plans developed under this influence often turn out to be unrealistic because people tend to overvalue their abilities

Moon in Aquarius

There is an increased interest in knowledge, and a need to communicate with like-minded individuals. At the same time, your desire for freedom and independence is strengthened, and you will want to establish your own rules. It is a good period for reading, study and scientific pursuits. However, activities which require subordination and discipline, as well as jobs which bore you, will go from bad to worse now.

In the body, Aquarius is associated with ankles and blood vessels.

Lunar Day 9

A day of struggle, the aggravation of conflicts, and heightened risk. Nothing new should be started on this day, especially if it is connected to material issues. The best things to do on this day are physical activities, such as working with land and taking care of plants and animals.

Vronsky:

It is better to devote the ninth day only to those pursuits that were started long time ago and that only need to be continued. It can be good and successful for a new build or a reconstruction, for fertilizing the soil, for planting and sowing, for buying cattle. Work on this day will increase one’s experience and prudence.

This day is also good for having fun and spending time with beloved ones. The life of the child born on this day will be long and fruitful. Illnesses can be dangerous but never fatal. Dreams will come true.

Globa:

Symbol – bat. A satanic day. Brings seductions, illusions, deceptions, bad signs that need to be analysed. There can be agonizing dreams, poisonings. One needs to purify oneself from physical and astral slags, to actively protect oneself from negative influences, forgive offenders, do weight-lifting exercises.

One should not look into a mirror, and it would be especially bad to break a mirror. Flowering cactus is a good sign. Bad signs: spilled milk (if a breast-feeding mother’s milk stops on this day, the child may be punished), oppressive feeling in the chest (one has accumulated a lot of problems).

Moon Void-of-Course: Begins at 01:04 BST
Ends at 18:59 BST
*US and Canada (with exception to New Brunswick, which will subtract 4 hours from the times given above) please subtract 5 hours
from above times on east coast and successive time zones will subtract an extra hour(+5) according to time zone you’re in

UK:
Sunrise: 07:20 BST; Sunset: 18:13 BST

U.S. and Canada:
Sunrise: 07:24 DST; Sunset: 18:58 DST (add one hour for New Brunswick, Canada) – these are East coast times. Please look in your daily newspaper or online for the times where you are located in the US and Canada. It would be quite impossible to fit them all here, sorry

The planetary hours will begin with Saturn for the first hour, 2. Jupiter, 3. Mars, 4. Sun, 5. Venus, 6. Mercury, 7. Moon, 8. Saturn, 9. Jupiter, 10. Mars, 11. Sun, 12. Venus

In order to figure the planetary hours exactly, figure out the total hours between Sunrise and Sunset (in your time zone), then convert into minutes. Divide by 12 and this will be the exact planetary hour time for each. Remember to accurately figure the sunrise and sunset for your time zone first.

The Crystal of the Day for Wednesday 28 August 2013 is Mariam (Miriam, Maryam) Jasper. Mariam Jasper was formed when the Himalayas rose into the sky. It is compressed bone, vegetation and shell from an ancient swamp which was compressed by the incredible forces involved in the mountains creation. It is also sometimes called “The Calligrapher’s Stone” (which I believe is wrongly associated as what I have researched, Calligrapher’s stone looks different completely) or “Cobra Jasper”, to name a few.

All jaspers are strong securing, stability stones. It is a powerful protection against things that are not good for you and it eases emotional stresses, making it a wonderful gemstone to have in your home. Jasper gives one the courage to speak out and have personal independence. It also protects from fears in the night.

Mariam Jasper helps keep one cool under severe pressure. It is a alchemist stone, enabling one to transform seemingly hopeless situations into creative positive ones. It also serves to counterbalance the busy modern world by bringing back pleasure in nature. It is considered an amulet for driving long distances, prosperity on business trips and overseas deals. Use Mariam Jasper for long term business decision making and forward planning. It Counters instant gratification that can destabilise a happy relationship, aids the gentle release of karma or trauma from the past, helping you to move forward into the future and is said to ease skin complaints, scar tissue, mobility, and scalp disorders.
