Daily Stuff 9-14-21 Cornelius Agrippa

Hi, folks!

The shop is closed on Tuesday/Wednesday. Summer hours are Thurs-Mon. 1-6pm. Featured photo by Larry Scott.

Clear and 48F, wind at 0-2mph and gusting, AQI 14-31, UV5. Chance of rain 4% today and 21% tonight. There’s a SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT for the early fall weather forecast for this weekend. Clean your gutters and drains! Also a SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY for 2pm to midnight on Wednesday. Sunny, or mostly through Thursday night, but then the weather is changing. The chance of rain over Thursday/Friday is nearing 100% and for an inch and a half over several days. By Monday we should be back to partly cloudy. The smoke plume has mostly cleared off! The smoke is mostly along the Cascades over those fires, but dang, Detroit Lake is at 202! 8 firespots…and there was a grassfire near Salem that prompted a level 3 evacuation. It’s out…. it was within a couple of hours, but wow…. They got out to check on some of the fires and a *lot* fell off the map! There are a couple of strange things. Cougar Peak is *also* off the map and that was big enough and uncontained enough to not make sense. … and Little Applegate was at 100%…now it’s at 7%? Well we’ll see what it says tomorrow.

Geranium, 1st year start $3

Yesterday I was still kinda draggy from the migraine and couldn’t think well. That made it hard to write and it really took all day and not much else got done. We had some shoppers and a few sales during the day. Between foggy-brain and a clogged-up ear (again!) I wasn’t much use….

Sedum, (outdoor ground cover, more available, $3

Linda (mandala Linda) was in and stopped to chat. I haven’t seen her for a couple of years and it’s good to know that she’s doing well. I hadn’t contacted her about OCPPG and she wanted some details.

Geranium, 1st year start $3

Tempus snoozed some, then ran around getting water together. I finished watering the plants and he refilled bottles, then got them into the car as he went. I put stuff together for the stew that’s going…. it’s a scraped icebox kind of thing, based on the pork roast from last week and some vegetables from the farmer’s market. I started it at home after we got the watering done and we brought it back here to finish. I’ll be boxing it up in the morning and most of it will get frozen. …speaking of which, I need to go check on it….

Geranium, 1st year start $3

So, that’s stirred and I have a sandwich. Lunch at 3am doesn’t feel odd, anymore. I’m not sure whether Tempus is going to Murphy’s this morning or not, but we’ll go home as soon as he’s back to sleep most of the day, probably. I have to be back in town at 7pm for a meeting, so I’m going to try to get a little sewing time in, if I can.


Thursday morning there won’t be a newsletter. I’ll try to get things like tides and astronomy doubled up in the Wednesday one….

Today is the 535 anniversary of the birth of Cornelius Agrippa, (born 1489), author of De occulta philosophia libri tres, a seminal work of magic. There is more information about his life here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelius_Agrippa , his famous book here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_occulta_philosophia_libri_tres

plant herb Equisetum_arvense_fr

Today’s plant is Field or Scouring Rush Horsetail  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_horsetail,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equisetum
The darned things are next to impossible to get rid of, although they’re fascinating in construction and growth habit. In Oregon they’re a noxious weed, since, while the plants have been used as a poverty food (early spring) they can be toxic to grazing animals and are dangerous to people who retain fluid, although the Romans used it both as a tea and a thickening powder. It can be used as a polish and a dye. Feminine, Saturn, Earth, This is best used in fertility mixtures, sachets, amulets, etc. Place in the bedroom for help in conception. Whistles made of horsetail stems are used in snake charming.

Today’s Astro & Calendar

Moon in Sagittarius enters Capricorn at 4:34am.

Waxing Moon Magick – The waxing moon is for constructive magick, such as love, wealth, success, courage, friendship, luck or healthy, protection, divination. Any working that needs extra power, such as help finding a new job or healings for serious conditions, can be done now. Also, love, knowledge, legal undertakings, money and dreams. Phase ends at the Tide Change on 9/20 at 4:55pm. Waxing Gibbous Moon – From seven to fourteen days after the new moon. For spells that need concentrated work over a ¼ moon cycle this is the best time for constructive workings. Aim to do the last working on the day of the Full moon, before the turn. Keywords for the Gibbous phase are: analyze, prepare, trust. It is the time in a cycle to process the results of the actions taken during the First Quarter. During this phase you are gathering information. Give up making judgments; it will only lead to worry. Your knowledge is incomplete. Laugh. Analyze and filter. LOOK WITHIN. God/dess aspect: Maiden/Youth, but in the uncommitted phase, the Warriors – Associated God/desses: Dion, Dionysius, Venus, Thor. Phase ends at the Full on 9/19 at 7:55am.

Neptune’s slow slide – Neptune reaches opposition this month. It spends September in Aquarius, near a triangle of three 6th-magnitude field stars.

Neptune reaches opposition at 5 A.M. EDT this morning. If you happen to be up early, you can catch the solar system’s most distant planet as it slowly sets in the west amid the stars of Aquarius. The easiest way to locate Neptune is to first find 4th-magnitude Phi (ϕ) Aquarii, then skim 4° northeast of the star. Magnitude 7.7 Neptune sits near a triangle of 6th-magnitude field stars, closest to the triangle’s southwestern point. The planet’s bluish disk spans a mere 2″, but it’s visible in binoculars as a flat-looking star. If you’ve got a telescope and good seeing, you’ll likely discern some color. Because it’s at opposition, Neptune will again rise as the Sun sets and remain visible all night, so don’t worry about missing it if you prefer to observe in the evening. Wait an hour or two after sunset for the region to climb away from the horizon, where turbulent air often muddies the view.

Sagittarius above a Cape Cod beach house – The famous Teapot asterism in Sagittarius stands out to the upper right of this vacation home, while the central regions of the Milky Way arc through the top of the image. – John Chumack

Now the Moon shines in the lid of the Sagittarius Teapot. The Teapot is tilting and pouring to the right, like always in September. Binoculars will help you pick it out from moonlight and light pollution. (Remember that the Teapot spans some 13°, about twice the width of a typical binocular’s field of view.)

Uranus (magnitude 5.7, in southern Aries) gets high in the east after midnight.

Runic half-month of Kenaz/Ken/Kebo – September 13-27 – Ken represents a flaming torch within the royal hall, so it’s the time of the creative fire – the forge where natural materials are transmuted by the force of the human will into a mystical third, an artifact that could not otherwise come into being. The positive aspects of sexuality that are immanent in Freya and Frey come into play at this time. Nigel Pennick, The Pagan Book of Days, Destiny Books, Rochester, Vermont, USA, 1992, p. 102

Celtic Tree Month of Muin/Vine  Sep 2 – 29 – Muin  – (MUHN, like “foot”), vine – The grape (Vitis vinifera L.) is a vine growing as long as 35 m (115 feet), in open woodlands and along the edges of forests, but most commonly seen today in cultivation, as the source of wine, grape juice, and the grape juice concentrate that is so widely used as a sweetener. European grapes are extensively cultivated in North America, especially in the southwest, and an industry and an agricultural discipline are devoted to their care and the production of wine. Grapes are in the Grape family (Vitaceae).
