Following the moon …. Venus day, May 23, 2014!!

~Following The Moon~ 

~~Venus’ day Friday 23rd May 2014~~

The Moon is in the Waning Crescent phase and is approximately 31% illuminated. Our moon went Void Of Course at 07.25 this morning and will move into courageous Aries at 17.01 this afternoon ( BST).

Our work during the Waning Crescent phase opens a window of opportunity for seeing your life objectively and becoming aware of what is important to you. At this point, what are your dreams and aspirations? What larger goals can you aspire to that will bring vitality and excitement into your life?

This is also a time for resting and gaining inner strength to prepare for a new cycle.

During this phase we tend to withdraw a little, go inward, think more, feel heightened or more fearful emotions, In this stage we recognize but fight our behaviors or addictions and we may also recognize anything misaligned with our vibration, including situations and people. 

Under the Void moon we may feel a little lost and disorientated. We often feel a great need to clean or declutter making way for the change in the incoming energy of the Moon when she transits into the next sign. Some of us just want to rest and take things easy, if we listen to our bodies now, they will lead the way. VOC Moon periods are perfect times in which to detoxify in some way and break stubborn habits.We can more easily release old thought patterns under a Void moon, sit back and listen, our inner world beckons.

When the courageous Moon in Aries marches on the scene this afternoon. Forget all that mushy emotional sensitivity – action is where it’s at! We are anxious to get started We are feeling restrained and not liking it one bit. I’d encourage you to channel your restless energy or frustration toward a worthy target.

For example this is a great energy for breaking the ties with past habits, routines or people that keep you in a rut. It doesn’t matter how long you have danced to the monotonous tune, you can consciously make new choices. We sometimes have an unconscious need or commitment to uphold a pattern. Even something as simple as ‘I’m unlucky; my whole family is unlucky.’ Now is the time to divest yourself of these negative or unproductive thoughts and promises. You are the decision maker! 

Friday is ruled by Venus the Goddess of love and beauty.

On the higher levels, the energy of Venus teaches you to connect with the Divine through heavenly communion. Friday is a great day to work on grace and charm as well as refining and balancing your senses. Visit an art gallery or take a dance lesson to call on the power of Venus.

Friday is also a great day for creativity.

Dance from your heart and soul, pick up paintbrushes, write that book that has been on your mind.

Magical color today pink representing unconditional love, love requiring nothing in return. It is also the colour of friendship and conviviality. In the aura it signifies balance between the spiritual and the material. Place pink crystals, such as Rose Quartz, around your home to ensure a happy and loving home environment or carry one to send out gentle loving vibes .. It is a very relaxing and soothing colour and promotes feelings of caring, tenderness and contentment.

The angel that governs Friday is Archangel Haniel, an Archangel of energy, vitality, and passion for life. When called upon, she will cleanse and transmit all worry and lower vibrations back into love with her blue orb of healing light.Haniel also assists with new beginnings, aligning with good luck, and positive change.

Call upon Archangel Haniel and imagine her blue orb of light all around you, to activate your innate healing abilities, tune into strong moon energy, inner strength, and your clairvoyance. 

Let your emotional, romantic, enthusiastic, contemplative self emerge from the cocoon and become that magi of your powers and virtues, your magnificence and what you have to offer human kind is needed and helps beyond your understanding. Release any fears that might hold you back. Take the steps, trust yourselves and take the plunge. If is a time of magical creating and transformation for those who choose the path, and you are ready and it is ripe for your true nature and powers to come back from many other lifetimes and it is safe for you to use them now. You have the talents and the skills and the knowledge for right and best use as well as the wisdom and the ancient knowledge to be released  to the many.”

“Pink Moon” ….. get ready! April 15, 2014!

‘Blood Moon:’ Red or Orange ‘Pink Full Moon’ and Lunar Eclipse (Tetrad)

Takes Place April 15

PinkMoon

The “Blood Moon,” or a moon that can turn red or orange, is slated for April 15–along with a lunar eclipse. The rare sight from Earth is attracting a lot of attention, partly because it’s the first major celestial phenomenon since early January.

It’s also the beginning of “an extraordinary series of lunar eclipses,” according to the United States space agency, NASA. That series is four consecutive total eclipses occurring at approximately six month intervals.

After the one on April 15, another will follow on October 8 of this year.

The third is slated for April 4, 2015; and the fourth September 28, 2015.

This series is referred to by experts as a lunar eclipse tetrad.

“The most unique thing about the 2014-2015 tetrad is that all of them are visible for all or parts of the USA,” said longtime NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak in a post on the agency’s website. Usually, about two lunar eclipses happen per year, but not all of them are total. Some are barely visible while others are partial eclipses.

The eclipse on April 15 will begin at 2 a.m. EDT when the edge of the Moon first enters the amber core of Earth’s shadow. Totality occurs during a 78 minute interval beginning around 3 a.m. in the morning on the east coast (midnight on the west coast).

Weather permitting, the red Moon will be easy to see across the entirety of North America.

~~Why Does the Moon Turn Red?~~

NASA explains why the moon will likely turn red.

“A quick trip to the Moon provides the answer: Imagine yourself standing on a dusty lunar plain looking up at the sky. Overhead hangs Earth, night-side down, completely hiding the sun behind it. The eclipse is underway.

“You might expect Earth seen in this way to be utterly dark, but it’s not. The rim of the planet is on fire! As you scan your eye around Earth’s circumference, you’re seeing every sunrise and every sunset in the world, all of them, all at once. This incredible light beams into the heart of Earth’s shadow, filling it with a coppery glow and transforming the Moon into a great red orb.”

The name “Blood Moon” isn’t usually identified as an official astronomical term; it comes from hunters who tracked and killed their prey by autumn moonlight, stockpiling food for the winter ahead. “You can picture them: silent figures padding through the forest, the moon overhead, pale as a corpse, its cold light betraying the creatures of the wood,” according to NASA.

Pink Moon?

Another term that is used to refer to this full moon is the Full Pink Moon.

That doesn’t refer to the moon turning pink.

Instead, according to the Farmer’s Almanac, the first full moon in April is dubbed thus. “This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring,” says the Almanac.

“Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.”

The name comes from Native Americans. It doesn’t mean the moon will be pink in color, but it refers to the color of the flowers.

~~Exploring Lunar Eclipse Tetrads~~

Over the past 5,000 years, 142 of these tetrads have occurred. Before the one that will happen this year and next year, the last one happened in 2003 and 2004. During the present millennium, the first eclipse of every tetrad occurs sometime from February to July. In later millennia, the first eclipse date gradually falls later in the year because of change in the Earth’s orbit.

NASA explains that Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli first pointed out that the frequency of tetrads varies over time. For instance, there were no tetrads from 1582 to 1908, but from 1909 to 2156 there are 17.

The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada says that after the upcoming tetrad, the next one will take place in 2032 and 2033. The one after that is slated for 2043 and 2044.

All told, there are slated to be six tetrads through 2091, not including the upcoming tetrad.

List names below for your monthly Full Moon Guide!

Month Name Description
January Full Wolf Moon This full Moon appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages. It is also known as the Old Moon. To some Native American tribes, this was the Snow Moon, but most applied that name to the next full Moon, in February.
February Full Snow Moon Usually the heaviest snows fall in February. Hunting becomes very difficult, and hence to some Native American tribes this was the Hunger Moon.
March Full Worm Moon At the time of this spring Moon, the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.
April Full Pink Moon This full Moon heralded the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon.
May Full Flower Moon Flowers spring forth in abundance this month. Some Algonquin tribes knew this full Moon as the Corn Planting Moon or the Milk Moon.
June Full Strawberry Moon The Algonquin tribes knew this Moon as a time to gather ripening strawberries. It is also known as the Rose Moon and the Hot Moon.
July Full Buck Moon Bucks begin to grow new antlers at this time. This full Moon was also known as the Thunder Moon, because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month.
August Full Sturgeon Moon Some Native American tribes knew that the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this full Moon. Others called it the Green Corn Moon.
September Full Corn Moon This full Moon corresponds with the time of harvesting corn. It is also called the Barley Moon, because it is the time to harvest and thresh the ripened barley. The Harvest Moon is the full Moon nearest the autumnal equinox, which can occur in September or October and is bright enough to allow finishing all the harvest chores.
October Full Hunter’s Moon This is the month when the leaves are falling and the game is fattened. Now is the time for hunting and laying in a store of provisions for the long winter ahead. October’s Moon is also known as the Travel Moon and the Dying Moon.
November Full Beaver Moon For both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. This full Moon was also called the Frost Moon.
December Full Cold Moon This is the month when the winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark. This full Moon is also called the Long Nights Moon by some Native American tribes.

Horse Racing …. Drugs, deception and death!!


~~April 8, 2014~~

WARNING: May find pictures and video to be graphic!

~~Horse Racing Exposed: Drugs, Deception, and Death~~

Imagine being pushed beyond the point of exhaustion: the bones in your legs straining to hold up the weight of your body, your bleeding lungs incapable of taking in enough air, and you’re forced to keep running despite it all. This is what life is like for racehorses who are chronically drugged by trainers in order to mask their pain and enhance their performance.

As reported in The New York Times, for the first time ever, PETA has captured cruel standard industry practices on camera during an undercover investigation of leading thoroughbred trainer Steve Asmussen.

SteveA

PETA’s investigator worked for Asmussen, who has won more races in the last decade than any other U.S. trainer, at two of the most famous racetracks in America: Churchill Downs in Louisville (home of the Kentucky Derby) and the Saratoga Race Course in New York.

Racehorses are given an aggressive, daily regimen of pain-masking drugs and treatments. 

These drugs don’t appear to be used for genuinely therapeutic purposes — they’re used to keep horses going when their legs and lungs are screaming “Stop!”

Horses in the racing industry are so routinely doped up that they have been labeled “chemical horses,” and their feet, bones, and bodies are progressively destroyed as a result. Our investigator documented some of the most commonly overused drugs and “treatments”:

  • Although it’s approved only as a prescription medication for horses with hypothyroidism, the drug thyroxine was being administered to many, if not all, horses in Asmussen’s New York stable, without any apparent testing or evidence of any thyroid condition. This drug was recklessly administered seemingly just to speed up metabolism — not for any therapeutic purpose.
  • Lasix — a controversial drug banned in Europe on race days — was injected into “basically all” of Asmussen’s horses who were being raced or timed in New York. A powerful drug meant to prevent pulmonary bleeding in the lungs during extreme exercise, Lasix is a diuretic that can serve as a masking agent for other drugs and also dehydrates horses to make them lose weight and run faster. One of New York State’s top horse-racing veterinarians admitted on camera to PETA’s investigator that Lasix is a performance-enhancing medication.
  • Horses’ legs showed multiple scars from being burned with liquid nitrogen ― a process called freeze-firing ― and burned with other irritating “blistering” chemicals, purportedly to stimulate blood flow to their sore legs.
  • Horses were also given muscle relaxants, sedatives, and other potent pharmaceuticals to be used for treating ailments such as ulcers, lameness, and inflammation, at times even when the animals had no apparent symptoms.

Stevea2Pushed beyond their limits, an average of 24 horses suffer fatal breakdowns at tracks across the country every week, due in part, according to a 2012 New York Times investigation, to the misuse of drugs that keep injured horses running, and 10,000 broken-down thoroughbreds are sent to slaughter every year.

Some horses were reportedly electro-shocked with concealed buzzers. One of Asmussen’s trainers, Scott Blasi, jokingly called his top jockey a “machine rider“― a nickname for riders who shock horses. And Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas laughed as he described how, at New Mexico’s Ruidoso Downs racetrack, it was like “a full-blown orchestra. Zzz. Zzz. Zzz. Zzz. Everybody had one.”

HBuzz

Valediction, a horse whose knee had been injected repeatedly, was claimed by another owner after a race, and Blasi exclaimed that he was so happy, apparently to be rid of the horse, that he “could do a f****** cartwheel.” Valediction reportedly had fractured a bone and could not walk to his new owner’s barn, and he had to have emergency surgery.

Blasi and the new owner’s trainer joked that the horse was a “rat”— what they call a horse who doesn’t win any money.

~~Held Together With Superglue~~

Nehro was a magnificent horse. He came in second in the 2011 Kentucky Derby, but what race enthusiasts and reporters never knew was that just a few years later, Nehro was racing and training on chronically painful hooves with holes in them. One of the hooves was, at one point, held together with superglue.

Nehro’s assistant trainer, Blasi, told PETA’s investigator, “I know the f***** hurts” ― yet Nehro was kept on the track and forced to participate in workouts. Just two years after that Derby finish, Nehro developed colic and went mad from pain. 

He was euthanized at Churchill Downs on the day of the 2013 Kentucky Derby.

“We witnessed a horse so sore it hurt him even to stand, thyroid medication dumped into horses’ daily feed, and horses who had been blistered with chemical paint in a bizarre attempt to stimulate healing.

Even at this top level of racing, the syringe is the top training aid, and if the horses get out alive, they’re broken.”
