Lucky Numbers for the Week of May 31, 2013

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But it is also helpful to have a list of lucky numbers to help spur the good fortune ... or fortunes. So with that in mind, here are some lucky numbers that can be used in any helpful way. I gazed into a pool of water, Nostradamus-like, and contemplated the cosmos. Then I mixed the tarot cards and allowed the spirits to guide me to the cards that represent the lucky numbers for this week. Nothing is guaranteed but who knows ....?

I choose eight numbers because 8 is the number of wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of May 31-June 6, 2013:

2, 14, 25, 56, 58, 61, 77, 79

Mad Men and the i-Ching

Ichingcoins0513I am a fan of the AMC program Mad Menand love it when they insert new age elements into their script, such as the Tarot reading in 2008.

Well Matt Weiner and his great team of writers did it again on the May 19, 2013 episode of Mad Men with the character of Wendy casting the i-Ching.Many of us fans try to "read: the intent of the series and I am not different. i-Ching is the Book of Changes - the need to progress to the next phase of life - and this episode in particular demonstrates changes and transitions: The death and funeral of one of the agency partners, the end of Don's affair with Sylvia, how Don's childhood impacts his relationships today and how he has not progressed from it, how Peggy has progressed emotionally in her approach to relationships.

As the Gothamist wrote:

Wendy the flower child is reading everyone's I Ching coins (she used bronze Chinese cash coins from the Song Dynasty). In the 1960s, the I Ching was all over pop culture: it showed up in the soap opera Dark Shadows, and in the Wonder Woman comic book (when an elderly mentor known as "I Ching" is introduced). And George Harrison, who composed The Beatles' "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (recorded in 1968) said he "picked up a book at random, opened it, saw 'gently weeps,' then laid the book down again and started the song." You can throw your own coins (instructions), or throw them virtually right here... but "if you don't take the I Ching seriously, it will not work."

As it turns out, I just virtually tossed my i-ching coins and my result was Expansion and Progress. Yes, I believe.


Triple Conjunction - Venus, Mercury and Jupiter

Mercury venus jupiterToday we experience a rare occurance - the close conjunction of Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Gemini.

Astrologically it indicates that our hearts and minds can spur us to great impactful ideas, communications and actions that may prove to be lucky. Where this expanison and luck occurs depends on where these planets sit in your personal birth chart. Gemini energy is all thoughts and communication blended with a great sociability. Share your ideas and see where it can take you.

Astonomically, it can be described this way, according to Reuters: Venus, the second-closest planet to the sun, and Jupiter are tens of millions of miles apart. But they have been cycling together while moving ever closer to each other this month, joined by the innermost planet Mercury. The celestial show peaks today when the trio will appear as a bright triangle of light in the western sky beginning about 30 minutes after sunset.

Triple conjunctions are relatively rare, according to NASA. The last one was in May 2011 and the next one will not occur until October 2015. "This triple is especially good because it involves the three brightest planets in May's night sky," the U.S. space agency said on its website. The formation should be visible even in places with bright city lights, though a clear view of the western horizon is a must.

Astronomers suggest sky-watchers let Venus and Jupiter be their guide. As the sky darkens the planets will be visible to the naked eye. "They really do shine so brightly that you might mistake them for one or two approaching airplanes with their landing lights turned on," the University of Texas' StarDate magazine wrote on its website. On Sunday, Mercury forms the top of the triangle. By Monday, Venus and Jupiter will be side by side, less than 1 degree apart. "After that, Venus and Mercury will continue to climb higher into the evening sky, while Jupiter drops toward the sun," said StarDate.

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Your speech packs a delicious sweet punch this week. Even the mildest remarks have a transformative impact so choose your targets carefully. Maybe it’s time to get involved in a proactive community effort like planting trees or stoking political activism. You are quite a charmer, Aries. Run for political office or even better, just Occupy it..

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans have been terrible spendthrifts recently, squandering their wealth on impulse items and worthless trinkets. (No names please!) And yet it has been fun, hasn’t it? Gain some new fiscal insights and maximize your largess into something even larger in time for the summer. Make every penny spend like a dollar. Will you become well endowed? Let’s just see.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
You are catapulted right into the center of the festivities whether you want to or not. It just seems that no matter how much Geminis try to hide, the spotlight seems to seek them out. Good thing. Why not go with the flow and see where all this jolly activity takes you. Begin new projects now; enthusiasm alone makes even a lousy idea seem radiantly inspirational.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers break out of thier psychological chains with a grand flourish. It’s time to change your life path and dump that smelly self-inflicted baggage. Resolve to sweep out the old and hearken in the true new you before the summer heats up. While you are at it, increase your karma by volunteering for a worthy cause. Give as good as you get now. 

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Friends and large social groups provide the impetus for change and fun. Will you be tempted? Leos can be a big part of the rousing action. So don’t play shy and retiring. Join in the revelry and shake your lion’s mane all around town. I suspect you’ll not only join in the festivities but will also be elected grand marshall. Where will it all lead?

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Your career suddenly shifts from reverse into high gear this week. It is a great time to make a great first impression on all the senior corporate sharks. Virgos usually like to play their politics according to their own rules. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose with this method. If you take calculated risks now, you rule the forest later.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Libras hanker to take a vacation to exotic destinations or embark on a great global exploration. You are restless and itchy. Wherever you decide to scratch to get out of your usual skin, make it manageable by planning it carefully before embarking. It saves time, energy and money. Better still, find adventure with a mysterious someone and share expenses.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Is it getting hot in here? Turn up the temperature and spike your sexy sizzle. Scorpios have been fairly sedate and quiet lately. Now unleash your animal magnetism in time to unwrap and show off your gifts. You can attract a bevy of desirable lovers but choose carefully and wisely. You don’t want to be just another pot on the stove. Or do you like to simmer?

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Make the most out of relationships this week. Sagittarians give partners everything they want and more this week. You have the inspiration and the impetus to make dreams come true so be generous and magnanimous. Remember the more you give the more you will (eventually) receive. That alone should be a tempting reason to be generous.

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns conquer the workplace this week. Your power of concentration makes you a force with whom to  be reckoned. Plot and plan your way out of a particularly dreary job. It is the season to be healthy. You can be inspired to buff your bod in preparation for summer or for those intimate hot tub evenings bobbing for rubber ducks... or whatever. 

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Lift the curtain on your interpretative performance to an adoring audience. It’s party time! How much fun can one Aquarian have? I suppose it depends upon how much fun you feel you deserve. Don’t sit home and wait for a knock on the door. Kick up the rug at a dance or tap into your artistic muse and create a masterpiece. Does nude food painting count?

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
The fates won’t let you get stuck in your old routine. Pisces can now implement change and improvement in their lives. Good. This is an excellent time to air out issues with family and prepare to reach new levels of understanding. No matter what, listen to your inner voice and don’t take “no” for an answer. This is the time to turn up the charm and get whatever you need.
