Lucky Numbers for the Week of August 31, 2018

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 August 31- September 6, 2018:

17, 28, 32, 37, 44, 49, 70, 75

Autumn Webinars
Carole Taylor
Transits: Finding the Story
Sunday 7th October 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST

Forecasting is one of astrology’s most challenging dimensions: to articulate the symbolism, to convey this in ways which are supportive and empowering, and at the same time to set this within the context of the client’s unique experience and their way of seeing the world. In addition, the transit picture for a given year can be complex, with influences that seem to conflict and pull in different directions. The art of forecasting is to find our way through this and allow deeper meanings to emerge. In this seminar, we will work to find the stories and potentials hidden within transits.
Lynn Bell
Fathers and their Children
Sunday 14th October 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST

This webinar will look at the archetype of the Father and how it is constellated in the birth chart. How does the father we had (or didn’t have) impact the structure of the psyche? Whether absent or present, biological or ‘adopted', the role of father influences our fundamental identity and relationships, as well as our ability to emerge into the larger world. While Saturn and the Sun are traditional signatures for the father, they rarely describe the rambler, the dreamer or the rolling stone. Fathers used to be the carriers of law and authority. As our cultures change, as marriage is redefined, the archetype of father changes with it.

Participants are welcome to volunteer their charts for possible inclusion in the webinar. (Please email chart data once you have booked and before 7th October. You will need a headset in order to talk to Lynn during the webinar.)


Clare Martin
The Astrology of Personality Theory
Sunday 4th November 2018 - 15.30-18.00 GMT


In traditional and indigenous cultures, visions, dreams and other mysterious disturbances were understood mythically and imaginatively, as communications from the soul. In our culture they are more likely to be treated purely physiologically, as symptoms to be diagnosed and treated, an observation which caused Jung to comment that ‘the gods have become diseases’. 

Astrologers have an important therapeutic function as the modern storytellers.  The language of astrology is symbolic and imaginative – it describes the human condition, just as it is.  In this webinar we will compare contemporary personality theories with the inherent conflicts built into every chart, paying particular attention to planetary and sign oppositions and develop astrological narratives which are imaginative rather than diagnostic, mythic rather than medical, archetypal rather than pathological.
Darby Costello
Rulership
Sunday 11th November 2018 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

Early on in our astrological education we all learn about rulership and exaltation, detriment and fall.  We learn that having planets in the first two categories is really good, and having planets in the second two is not good.  And yet, how is it that some of the finest warriors in the world have a 'weak' Mars, such as Nelson Mandela and Winston Churchill each with their Mars in Libra?  There is a secret to rulership and exaltation, detriment and fall that we learn over a lifetime of doing charts.
Shawn Nygaard
The 3rd House - Impressions from the Starry Night
Sunday 18th November 2018 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

Hellenistic astrology named the 3rd House "Goddess," referring to that Great Goddess of the night sky, the Moon, whose Joy is in this house. Topics of the 3rd House include communication, early education, siblings, short journeys, and our immediate environment. This webinar explores the role of the Moon in helping us understand the 3rd House, its relationship to the mundane world, and the many and varied ways communication styles reveal themselves through planets placed in this house.
John Green
Jupiter: Never Enough
Sunday 9th December 2018 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

Jupiter is the greater benefic, or so we are told. Today’s webinar looks into the role of Jupiter in our lives, what does it mean and how do we feel it? Is Jupiter the great god Zeus bringing us bounty and sage philosophy or does it have a darker side of excess and promises of boundlessness where nothing is ever enough.  We will examine Jupiter in the natal chart and by transit to see what the supposed greater benefic really does in our charts.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
The first thing you have to do this week is to work towards attaining harmony in your workplace. Then carve a special place for yourself in the hierarchy. Co-workers and colleagues trust you and may reveal all sorts of interesting and useful information. Take it all in, Aries. You find that you will go far if you press the flesh around the office. Err handshakes that is!

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
There are many opportunities for fun and frolic now and you are pushed right into the center of the action. What mischief will you get into, Taurus? Cultivate more intense liaisons that have longer lasting impact. Light and airy just won’t cut it for you now. Dive into the bubbling stewpot and get cooked. Do I smell someone steaming? Then release into the atmosphere.

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Some family issues need to be addressed but don’t agree to anything that has you compromising too much. There will also be a slew of home improvement projects that can change your personal landscape. If you have been deferring repairs, tackle them now. Geminis need a perfect spot to entertain their packs of pals. Gee how about a house painting party?

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
You think that you are very clever and insightful... and you are. But why keep such good news to yourself? You are filled with passion and relevancy. It spurs your imagination and sense of political outrage. Good! Cancers must not be shy and retiring now. Speak loud and clear and I guarantee that people will listen. Hey! I can’t hear you!

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Things begin with a bang and gathers up in intensity as the week progresses. You are full of energy, Leo. That means that you should focus on your financial stability and should not be shy about asking advice from investment experts. All of your good efforts will have a payoff as long as you keep your eye on the ultimate prize. Early retirement anyone?.

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos now have plenty of opportunities to expand their range of influence, meet important new people and strengthen their social reputation. Your future looks bright so get ready to launch your best ideas now. Influential folks are listening to your advice and wisdom and why not? You know a thing or two. At least you say that you do ...

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Libras may feel constrained and want change now! You feel that there are too many restrictions on your comings and goings, too many meaningless rules and far too many people telling you what to do. You are now given the chance to break out. Great! Howl at the moon, run wild and let it all hang out. Hurry before the weather gets too chilly. Brrr.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Friends wend their way to your door and you cannot escape the excitement. And why would you want to escape, Scorpio? Just allow yourself to get caught up in the bonhomie with a few bon homies. Also try to expand your social circle by joining new clubs or organizations. You will find new friends almost everywhere. But start looking at the Happy Hour.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Sagittarians find that the best use of their time this week is building their reputation within the corporate arena. You have some great new ideas, have expert opinions that powerbrokers notice and reward and you really seem to enjoy the intrigue. Do what you need to do to get ahead now. Too, too soon you will be content to rest on your past efforts.... again.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
It is time to get out of your old skin and try something brand new - preferably in some distant and exotic locale. Adventure awaits! Capricorns should try to travel at some time during the next few weeks and get out of your rut. Not only will you gain confidence and perspective, you may even find a wonderful pillow gift in your hotel. No names please...

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians are full of vim and vigor this week and are looking to share their passionate energy with the right partner. Luckily there are opportunities to find someone who holds that certain allure. If you seek, you are bound to capture any possible lover you want. But are you looking for a long term relationship or brief fling? Decisions. Decisions.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces want to find a connection on a more meaningful level and will seek to either strengthen a current relationship or start a new one, now. Of course that means that you have to lift yourself off the couch and make a special effort, do anything. Wake up, plug in and connect - you will be shocked to learn that you have more electricity than you first think.

5 Crystals Every Traveler Should Have In Their Pocket

 Protection against lost luggage? Good luck making it through airport security with your sanity intact? There's a crystal for that.

Departures magazine takes a look athow crystals can help smooth our most difficult travel experiences:

We all have our tiny travel rituals. Be it rolling our clothing vs. folding when packing, always putting our passport in a certain pocket of our backpack, or indulging in a Cinnabon each time we’re at the airport (we all do that, right?), these specific movements help us feel calmer, and more collected through our journey. And while all of these practices are fine, there may be an easier, and tinier, way to both center ourselves and feel more at home no matter where in the world our travels take us.

“Remember when you were little, you’d go to the park, you’d go to a lake, you’d go to a beach, and you'd pick up pebbles and stones and shells. They were your little treasures. I think a lot of people resonate with the crystals for travel because they remember when they were little kids and went on trips, they would do the same thing,” Heather Askinosie, co-founder of the crystal healing business Energy Muse, told DEPARTURES.

In her new book, Crystal Muse, Everyday Rituals to Tune into the Real You, Askinosie, along with her business partner, co-author and best friend Timmi Jandro, explains how anyone can use the power of these little rocks to feel more centered in both their every day lives and along their travels. Askinosie and Jandro were also kind enough to break down a few key crystals and rituals people should be taking part in when they jet off to a new destination.

Shungite: For Going Through Security

“That's really good for when you have to go through the scanner,” Askinosie said of carrying shungite, a dark, dense mineral rock that comes from the village of Shunga in Karelia, Russia. “The shungite is a kind of energy protection. I have that on my body because I want to go through that machine and be able to have some kind of shield.”

Moonstone: For Protecting Your Luggage

“Moonstone has a reputation,” Askinosie explained of the colorful, popular rock that has long been believed to carry healing properties. “You want to either wear moonstone on your body or have a piece of moonstone in your luggage because there is a rumor that if you have a piece of moonstone in your luggage, your luggage won't get lost.” And, according to Askinosie, it’s worked for her every single time she’s hopped on a plane.

Blue Lace Agate: For Turbulence

“For up in the sky turbulence, I don't go very far without my blue lace agate, which is an amethyst stone,” Askinosie said of the stunning lavender stone that allows people to think more clearly in stressful situations. “So that when the turbulence is happening I have something to hold on to and to rub. I could look down on it and it's soothing and know it's going to be okay.”

Salt: To Cleanse a Hotel Room

“We always bring a little bag of salt with us so that when we get to the hotel room we put a little pinch in the four corners of the bed frame,” the partners said. And typically, travelers will want to go for a Himalayan salt rock, which also comes with its own purifying properties. “It creates an energetic protective shield around your bed that you could sleep better.”

Selenite: To Ward Off Jet Lag

“I also always bring selenite because it's something you could lay on your chest and it helps with jet lag,”  Askinosie explained of the milky white crystal known for its ability to remove negative energy. “These are minor tweaks that make the room feels more grounded. When you're traveling, you want to do little things that help you feel at home so that you could really tap into the environment that you're now in.”

Looking to learn more? You can, of course, pick up a copy of their new book, but if you happen to be in Southern California, Askinosie and Jandro also welcome any and all visitors to check out their showroom. There, you can take a tour and even build your own jewelry pieces so you can bring a little magic with you wherever you go.
