HOROSCOPE AND HOW IT INFLUENCES PEOPLE’S PERSONALITIES

Oftentimes, we run out of ideas when we are about to make a life-changing decision that may affect our lives and those closest to us. The horoscope plays an important role in life as it is used to interpret and guide someone’s decision – i.e. assisting him in making the right choice. Horoscope works by predicting the future based on the relative positions of the planets. They are quite mysterious because the future (which is the reality yet to be seen) is predicted by apparent bodies.

For thousands of years, the horoscope has served as a map of the sky and has helped to shape up a lot of lives and decisions. Checking the horoscope remains a culture in many countries. For known reasons, people believe that choices in life that include work, relationships, love, family, employment, choice of friends, etc. can be determined by the consultation of horoscope charts. This is why most people are so much intrigued by the future and it is why horoscopes bring excitement to many individuals.

A horoscope is based on a period of twelve months with each month having a zodiac sign. These are the following signs:

  • Aquarius (January 20- February 19) people who are under this sign tend to be philosophical by nature.
  • Pisces (February 20-March 20) represented by the fish. They are caring and compassionate.
  • Aries (March 21- April 19) depicted with the image of a mountain goat. These people are short-tempered and generally focused on their goal.
  • Taurus (April 20-May 20) depicted with the bull. These people are romantic, passionate, and loyal.
  • Gemini (May 21-June 20) symbolized by the twins. These people are real, interactive, and creative.
  • Malignancy/cover (June 21- July 22) represented by the crab. These individuals are calm and peaceful.
  • Leo (July 23- August 22) these individuals are leaders and sometimes dictators.
  • Virgo (August 23-September 22) these people are highly analytical and in always striving for the best.
  • Libra (September 23- July 22) characterized by the weighing scales. These people are naturally thoughtful.
  • Scorpio (October 23-November 22) characterized by the scorpion. People who are under this sign are intelligent and optimistic.
  • Sagittarius (November 23- December 21) depicted with the image of an archer. These individuals have a continual desire for absolute perfection.
  • Taurus (December 22- January 19) these people are very active and selfish at times.

The Chinese and ancient Mayan were proficient in horoscope and astrology. Experienced astrologers draw a horoscope for the time event so as to get accurate birth data such as the strength, weakness, personality, and potentials. Today, horoscopes can be found in magazines, newspapers, as well as online.

 

NB

Naturally, it is a good idea not to rely on horoscopes for each and every decision that you have to make in life. You can decide to live your dreams or allow an ancient mysterious chart make decisions for you. It is left for you to choose to believe them, or simply consider them a source of entertainment.

Halloween Is Coming! Here Are Some Curiosities About The Day

Halloween is probably one of the most popular holidays for children, and adults who are children at heart. Between dressing up as favourite characters, going to parties and of course, Halloween-centred treats, it’s the one day that seems to be the perfect start to all the cold-weather holiday fun.

But what some people may not know is that Halloween has a unique history that will give perspective to some of our modern customs.

Halloween’s History

Halloween, or as it’s spelt in some circles, ‘Hallowe’en’, has its roots in the Pagan festival known as Samhain (SOW-wen). It’s an ancient Gaelic word meaning ‘summer’s end.’ There are many ideas and legends surrounding the ancient customs of the time that it can be a bit difficult to sort myth from fact.

Here is some of what we know for sure:

  • Dressing in costumes is one of these long Hallowe’en traditions. It is rooted in the thought that because the veil between this world and the next is thinnest at Samhain, mischievous or possibly vengeful spirits might find a way to come back to this plane and play tricks on, or curse those still living who had done wrong by the deceased. Dressing in costumes of some kind was originally intended to confuse those spirits, and ward off any of that mischief.
  • Trick-or-treating is something of a spin-off of the old custom of ‘going a-souling.’ This was mostly done by the poor people, often children, who would ask for prayers for those in their family who had recently died. In return, they might receive milk, bread or perhaps wine, if it was a family going together. This custom came about sometime after Christianity took over the holiday of Samhain and turned it into Hallowe’en, aka ‘All Hallows’ Eve,’ likely to eradicate the Pagan practices normally associated with the festival.
  • Jack-O-Lanterns are another old tradition, of course, but believe it or not, pumpkins were not the first vegetables to be used. Turnips were used instead at one point.

Halloween Decorations

It could be said that there are quite a few decorations and colours that just about everyone associates with Halloween. Orange, black, yellow and purple are common colours, as is red, for those who know about the color being associated with the astrological sign of Scorpio, which falls between October 22nd and November 22nd.

Naturally, you’re likely to see ghosts, witches, cats, bats and all other manner of mysterious or strange creatures. Here are some curiosities about those types of decor:

 

  • Ghosts are a common theme with Halloween decorations because of the veil being thin on October 31st.
  • Witches, of course, are a usual sight for many reasons, and many witch decorations are designed in the shape of the old hag or crone/wise-woman aspect of the triple-goddess, but until the resurgence of Pagan practises that came about in the 1950s and later, along with certain TV shows like ‘Bewitched,’ most thought of witches in the form of the ‘old woman,’ and it was usually a negative association. These days, if you see witch-themed decor in the ‘old crone’ form, it’s often more comical than frightening.
  • Cats and bats are, of course, just as typical at Halloween, mostly because both are nocturnal creatures, they were seen as mysterious for a very long time, and for some, a bit frightening and evil solely because of misinformation and outright lies perpetuated by fearful people in the past. Anymore, science has replaced much of the superstition, and cats–including black cats–are beloved by many people. Bats are now often thought of as fascinating, even if their appearance does seem a bit ‘freaky’ to some, and so both take their rightful place among Halloween-themed decor, which you can find in the zen products section of zenspiritual.com’s online store.

Halloween is a fun time of the year for many. And no matter how you celebrate it, be it in modern Pagan fashion with a ritual or ceremony for the day, or simply as a secular holiday for kids and kids-at-heart, or anywhere in between, it’s the perfect way to welcome the cold weather holidays that come afterward.

Amethyst Runes: What They Are

 

If you are new to an alternative spiritual path, and along the way, you’ve done a brief bit of research on some things your friends told you about, such as crystals, divination tools and so on, you might have come across a combination of the following: Norse runes (aka ‘Elder Futhark’) carved into pieces of amethyst.

Amethyst runes, essentially. ‘How lovely!’ you might be thinking. ‘But what’s the purpose of this combination, other than the fact that the purple tone is pretty, and these odd-looking letters are fascinating?’

This is an excellent question, and the information given will help you understand more.

About Amethyst

Let’s start with the stone itself. If you haven’t looked much into crystals, amethyst is one of the best ones to start with, as it is one of the best-known, next to clear quartz.

Amethyst has long ben celebrated as a stone that’s associated with the third eye chakra, the one situated between—and just slightly above—your physical eyes. The third eye is often the seat of clairvoyance and other ‘mind’s-eye’ activities, such as dreaming. Amethyst aids in clearing and using the third-eye chakra and aids in using other intuitive gifts that include the ability to use divination tools, such as the Norse runes.

There are other stones associated with the third eye, but amethyst is, essentially the ‘star’ of the ‘show’ as it were. Long ago, in ancient Greece, it was also associated with sobriety (not being drunk or otherwise inebriated), but that usage has often been set aside in favour of its prime association with intuition.

About the Norse Runes

The Norse runes have been around for millenia, as the earliest runic-style writings in caves date back to the late Bronze Age: around 1300 BC. This said, no one really truly knows how old they actually are, as it’s been suggested that what we know as the runes were likely used as divinatory tools long before being used as an alphabetic system.

Norse/Teutonic mythology tells the story of how the runes came into being. Odin (aka Wodin/Woden/Wotan) is a Norse god who will do anything to gain more knowledge and wisdom. He envied the Norns their power to shape destiny with the runes, and thus he sought their wisdom. For those who are just coming to know the various mythologies beyond any classroom, the Norns are three women that might be considered the Scandinavian equivalent to the Greek Fates.

In the quest for the runic knowledge wielded by the Norns, Odin pierced himself, and hung upside down on the World Tree, known as Yggdrasil. He told no one to give him any kind of help, not even a drink of water, until he got the knowledge he sought. Finally, after nine days and nights, he was finally shown the powers of the runes, as they accepted his sacrifice. He was then able to do many things with this knowledge, including healing bodily and emotional wounds, binding enemies and making their weapons useless, and much more.

The Combination of the Runes with Amethyst

Now that you know the power of amethyst and the mystical essence of the runes, you can see why someone would have the insight to carve them into amethyst, and combine their energies. The amethyst heightens your intuitive knowledge, and you are using the runes that Odin himself learned while hanging on the World Tree, a very shamanic act, variations of which are echoed throughout many other stories, practises and rituals intended to bring about knowledge from Spirit.

Using amethyst runes, found in the Zen Spiritual shop, can bring an added dose of Otherworldly knowledge to your day in beautiful ways you might not expect. Simply be respectful of the knowledge you’re given, as well as the stones themselves. Cleanse them, consecrate them as you see fit, and it’s advisable not to let just anyone handle them.

Also, to create the proper energetic atmosphere for divination, make sure you’re not going to be interrupted by phone calls, etc. It’s also often suggested that you meditate beforehand, and you can create as simple or as elaborate a ceremony as you see fit, based on time, needs, etc.

While they’re not the only divinatory tool in the world, the amethyst runes are a beautiful way to receive guidance for your life, as well as a way to help others, if you feel called to do so.
