Every Day
 has its own energy. We can use this energy to our advantage and / or to warn us against taking certain actions. For example, today is good for taking responsibility and doing the right thing.  A good time for introspection. Take action towards bettering your life and making money. Today can either be sensual and lustful or present problems with sexual organs, for example period pain.  The warnings today are against acting impulsive and being distracted by jealousy. Vibrate love to attract good things into your life. 
I aim to live magically, and invite you to join me on my journey as I explore and explain these energies so that we can move with the rhythm of nature for our ultimate benefit and gain. In my quest I track the daily movement and energy of the moon and the planets that influence earth. I put pictures of the moon's path and what it symbolises for all to follow and enjoy.

Elephant, grey as a mouse, big as a house, nose like a snake, I make the earth shake. - JR Tolkin.

Rulers: Sun  (get up and go; lets become powerful) and 10 Universal Powers.

Energy Vibration: 
This energy is strongly Sagittarius. Combine spiritual and material aspirations for everyone's benefit. Support others and be supported, value others and be valued (Levacy, [p231). This energy is both sexy and hard working. Be honest and sincere and maintain high moral standards and people will respect your opinions. A good day for working with animals. Good for safe travel, agriculture, business, planting trees, crops and flowers, carpentry, learning, ceremonies, starting things from which permanent results are required. A good time to take responsibility for yourself, your actions and for others.

Step into Magic: 

Write 10 wishes on a paper and burn it. A good time for sex magic and to set new long term goals.

Tusk: Penetrating Power - intellectually and sexually. Penetrating insight. They will understand and experience everything deeply. They are sensual, lustful and enjoy sex.
Trunk - strength to uproot a tree as well as finesse to pick up a needle.

Lyra's Motto: True victory cannot be had by any weapon or strategy that neglects morality. Without morality our victories quickly undo themselves. Your good morals are your truest strength and on this strength you can become victorious. The Sun lends them leadership potential to conquer all and obtain Ultimate Victory on the strength of their righteous character.

These people are introspective and penetrative. They are highly intelligent and usually highly educated. They are very helpful and popular among friends and lucky in love. They are very responsible.


Saul Barnard (Arnold Vosloo) in 'Circles in the Forest' is a Lyra. He befriended an elephant when he was a little boy and went to save his life when he was a man. He loves animals, never forgets and is very loyal. He also remains loyal to the love of his life Kate. He is ready to take action, hard-working, studious and always wants to learn more. He does everything he can to better his life and is practical in money making.

Erin Brockovitz is a Lyra. She is enduring, hard-working and fights for the cause she believes in. She is hardworking, righteous, networks and makes friends, through fighting for the legal rights of the people affected by the hexavalent Chromium.

Edward and Bella Cullen (Breaking Dawn) are both Lyra's. They are both good looking and popular. They are highly sexed, loyal, fight for what they believe in, and have many friends. Edward's high moral standards kept him from ravishing Bella before their marriage. They become successful through their connections and defend their cause. They are also both highly intelligent and he must be very clever because he has gone to school for so many years.

King Edward VIII who abdicated out of love and loyalty for the divorced Mrs Wallace. Carl Jung left both the psycho-analytic and medical associations at inopportune junctures to advance psychotherapy - a costly move just like King Edward's. These people are self-directed and will not tolerate mishandling of a mission by those who do not fully understand and support their work / beliefs. They are forceful, logical and extremely devoted.

Key Word for Lyra: Responsibility.
Like Spider-man, they shoulder a great deal of responsibilities from a young age.

Things that may befall Lyra - may fall from a tree or get injured by a weapon between the ages of 10 and 12.  At the age of 14 a death causes deeply unresolved psychological issues. Between the ages of 28 and 31 there is an important change in the family. Become more successful after the age of 38. Their children cause them great concern. They vibrate to the numbers 3, 12, 21 and 61.

Find out where Lyra lies in your chart to understand its influence in your life. For example, I have Saturn in Lyra in my 7th house of marriage and death. At 10 I was injured by a sharp object. At the age of 14 our neighbour beat my dog to death in front of me. At 29 my father died and I divorced. I became more goal directed and successful after the age of 38. The numbers 12, 21, 3 and 61 bring me luck and stability over time (Saturn is a slow moving planet).

People born between 11 to 23 January have their Sun in Lyra (Sagittarius).
Chinese year sign - Rat.

Tarot Card: 
4 of pentacles - the natural ability to acquire influence, money and power. Everything they touch turns to gold.

Ascended Master / Guardian Angel:
Ganesha: Bestows wisdom and wealth.

Lunar Zodiac: Earth is surrounded by the Zodiac band of 360 degrees.  The zodiac band is usually divided into 27 sections (mansions or constellations) of 13.2 degrees.  Whenever a planet moves through these mansions they radiate the energy of the particular mansion they are visiting.  These energy vibrations influence us on a subconscious level.  The Moon completes its wobbly trajectory around the earth in 27.32 days (a sidereal month).  The Moon is the closest planet (satellite) to earth and exerts the most energy on us (evident in the tides of the ocean).  Each individual will experience the daily energy in a different way as we are all unique.  For example if the energy involves travelling, one person might travel to another country while another may just travel a bit more than usual.  Pathological behaviour has been attributed to the moon, thus the term luna-tic.  Instead of reacting to this energy, it can be harnessed to benefit us in a positive way.  Take note of how the moon affects your energy and manifestations, and use it to your advantage.  Each of these 27 (2 + 7 = 9) mansion are divided into 4 quadrants. 27 x 4 gives 108 prayer beads. 108 Holy Names, 108 prayers, 108 repetitions. 108 = 1 + 8 = 9 the powerful and magic number. Add any multiple of 9 and you will still get 9.
