March 17: Saint Patrick's Day

Sunday 17/3 is ruled by Saturn and the Water Horse. Have an outdoors day, breath in fresh air and get some exercise. Moon sextiles both Mars and Uranus for courage, self reliance, and the desire for excitement or change of scenery. Moon blends with Jupiter for good social times and fun. Mercury has turned direct again so communication can be easier and more direct. Today is good for nurturing. However, be careful of 'psychic vampires'. No matter how much time and energy you give them they will always want more, leaving you feeling empty and unfulfilled. Operate in a structured manner and set clear boundaries.

St Patrick's Prayer for Protection:
I bind to myself today: God's power to guide me, God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to teach me, God's ear to hear me, God's eye to watch over me, God's word to give me speech, God's hand to guard me, God's way to lie before me, God's shield to protect me, against the snares of demons, against the seductions of vices, against the lusts of nature, against those who wish me ill, Christ, protect me today.

St Patrick's Prayer:
Hail, glorious St Patrick! We honor your name, Though Erin may claim thee, the world knows your fame. The faith of our fathers is our treasure too, How Holy the Thought, that they learned it from you. Through crosses and trials its fires burn bright, they show us the way, and the truth and the light. Great Saint! Intercede, that we always may be devoted and loyal, true children of thee. Our love and devotion be ever like thine, our thought be of Jesus, our heart be His shrine, And when to the end of life's path we have trod, Be near us great Bishop, Anointed of God.

Shamrock (3 leaf clover) Irish Blessing: There's a dear little plant that grows in the isle, it was Saint Patrick himself, sure, that set it, and the sun of his labor with pleasure did smile, and with dew from his eye often wet it. It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the mireland, and they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland.

Shamrock - sacred to Celts and Druids.
3 - Holy number, number of the divine and holy trinity.

Legend: A sailor went to sea to travel to Ireland. His girlfriend asked him to bring home a Shamrock from Ireland. While in Ireland, he trespassed on someones property to steal the Shamrock and landed in prison, causing him to miss his ship. He thought, so much for the luck of the clover! The next day he found out that the ship that he was supposed to be on sank!
