The night was calm, dark and still. To this day, I remember it extremely well. However, many a year ago, it was a Saturday, a horror story of bold. Two other girls and I, together we were three, collected around a board known as the Ouija. Slowly, we placed our fingertips upon a small piece of wood called the planchette, dreading impending moments of regret, with fears of memories we wouldn't forget.
With bated breath we deeply inhaled, then proceeded to ask things in great detail. For with the hereafter we wanted to converse, in a series of questions that were unrehearsed, like “is there anyone here?” and “how did you die?”. Then seconds later we got a reply. As scary as it was we were told “yes”. One simple word that made us become speechless. For we weren't the ones who had replied, it was quite obvious by the fear in our eyes.
We continued with questions of more and we were answered with terror galore. With whom we had reached from the other side, was trying to come through with nothing to hide. Their answers were clear and their actions then too, for they were knocking over candles in the adjoining room. A room unoccupied with only a dim glow except for the entity's unwanted show. Their presence was felt with heavy intent and we three girls were starting to resent unleashing this darkness that wasn't fervent.
We stopped that night all due to fright and quickly put the board away locked up and tight. Our hearts raced without skipping a beat from what we had just witnessed that made the facts concrete. And even though it's been so many years since that night with the swelling of tears, never again in front of me has there ever been another board known as the Ouija.
Did you know : There are 12 . 368 lunar months in a year.
If you multiply this by your age in years, it will tell you how many moons old you are.
A 17 year old would therefore be 210 moons old.
I am 730 moons old Ha Ha Ha.
Tarot - The Four Seasons - and the Timing of Events by Neil Ormsby.
My favourite Tarot spread is the Celtic Cross.
As you all know the positions can represent the past present and future.
1. Influences currently surrounding the person.
2. What are the obstacles (+ or -) if any currently blocking the person.
3. This is the basis of the situation.
4. This is behind you (past) or in the process of leaving.
5. What does the person wish to achieve (the possibility's)
6. This is what might lie ahead (direct link to card 10)
7. The persons apprehensions (negative)
8. The feelings of others around the person.
9. The persons hopes and desires (positive)
10. The outcome.
The four Tarot Aces represent the four seasons :
Ace of Cups represents the Spring, March, April, May.
Ace of Wands represents the Summer, June, July, August.
Ace of Swords represents the Autumn, September, October, November.
Ace of Pentacles represents the Winter, December, January, February.
Here are two examples of a timing event using one of the four Aces.
If the Ace of Cups is in position 5 in the Celtic spread it is the 5th week in the spring season which is the 1st week in April when the event will happen.
If the Ace of Swords is in position 7 in the Celtic spread it is the 7th week in the autumn season which is the 3rd week in October when the event will happen.
I did a reading for a young lady many years ago at a psychic event, and as soon as I laid the ten Tarot cards on the table, the first thing I said was congratulations.
The lady in question smiled and was so happy, and when I told her the baby was due at the end of July (cannot remember the exact dates), she said how could I know that when she and her partner had only just found out and had not told anybody, and he was not there that day.
So if I did the reading in early November and the lady had only just found out she was pregnant the card in the spread would be the Ace of Wands and it would be in position 8 which is the 8th week in the summer season.
So from early November, the baby would be due 9 months later at the end of July, which is 8 weeks into the summer season and with the tarot card the Ace of Wands in position 8 it would indicate the birth in the last week of July.
I cannot remember the ten cards in the spread or the precise dates because it was many years ago, but on that occasion I saw the birth of a child coming from the Ace of Wands, and it was also a perfect timing card.
I normally used this form of timing of future events if the Ace fell in position 5 to 10 in the spread.
Please remember the Ace has its own interpretation at all times linked with the other cards in the spread, besides using it as a timing card.

Crows and ravens are messengers from this life to the spiritual side. They are looked at the wrong way.
People see them as bad omens, but in fact they are just the opposite! Crows can symbolize death, yes this true, but not in the way that people think.
Crows will almost always be seen at a burial of a loved one and in cemeteries because they deliver messages from the living to the deceased.
They can also linger around a person who is greatly ill and is about to pass away. No they will not cause the death, but will instead assist the soul on to the other side.
If you are constantly seeing crows and or hearing their caws, they are trying to tell you something. They are a symbol of out with the old in with the new.
The death of something old or bad in your life and the bringer of something new!
So the next time you see crows or ravens, send them off with a message and know that you will be heard. Take their visits as a good omen and be glad that they came to you!
The Moon Tarot Card - by Alyx Grayson
The Moon is a powerful symbol in astrology as well as in the Tarot. The Moon is synonymous with Pisces and is both emotional and mysterious.
The Moon controls the tides on Earth and the phases of the moon are often associated with a woman's fertility cycle.
In most forms of mythology, the Moon is referred to as a symbol of the Goddess or associated with Goddesses including Isis, Artemis, Diana and Astarte.
The full moon offers a wealth of possibilities, visions, illusions and poetry.
In Tarot, the Moon represents dreams (including nightmares) and warns of hidden meanings (illusions).The Moon may also represent great creativity and the promise of primal feelings and intuition.
Depending on its placement, the Moon card may encourage the aspirant to follow their dreams and intuition to achieve their desires.
It may also warn of hidden pitfalls that those with stars in their eyes may not sense.
The Moon, inverted, may warn of danger to mental health and damage.
If the questioner feels they are undergoing a tremendous amount of mental duress, the inverted moon may warn them to stay the course and avoid distractions.
They should take their medication, see their physician and obey their life plans' in order to avoid being lured from the path by false illusions.
Some readers will liken it to the poppy fields that lure Dorothy from the yellow brick road.
She sees the Emerald City in the distance and thinks she can make it by abandoning the path that will definitely take her there to cut across the fields.
The moon warns of the hidden trickery the witch leaves in the poppies that knocks out Dorothy and her companions.
If choosing the Moon to represent the questioner during a reading, the questioner is admitting to an illusion of self and to hidden mysteries. The questioner may be a seeker, wanting to learn more about him or herself.
If the Moon represents the final destination of the reading, the questioner may find that as in life, the reading suggests that each destination is merely a portal to a new journey with new questions that will need to be answered.
Ultimately, the Moon's mysterious influence lay in the shadows of illusion and mystery that one might find on a moon drenched night.
The illusion of bright light exists, but it is merely a reflection of the sun. The traveller knows that the moon's light can be useful, but it is wholly dependant on the sun.

Chinese Astronauts are preparing to Grow Fresh vegetables on Mars and the moon after researchers successfully completed a Preliminary test in Beijing, state media reported.
Four kinds of vegetables were grown in an "ecological life support system", a 300 cubic metre cabin which will allow astronauts to develop their own stocks of air, water and food while on space missions, Xinhua news agency said Monday.
The system, which relies on plants and algae, is "expected to be used in extra-terrestrial bases on the moon or Mars", the report said...

David Bowie - The Star Man - But The stars look very different today !
When asked once if he'd like to be a space tourist, David Bowie quipped "I'd rather I'd chew pieces of cement rather than get on a space ship – those buggers are dangerous, they blow up you know; thank you, no, I can see the moon from my window, it's enough for me."
