Strange of the Week 33 of 2023

Greetings, seekers of the hidden mysteries. I am Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand, the most famous fortune-teller of the 19th century. I have returned from beyond the grave to reveal to you the secrets of the week 33 of 2023, from August 14 to August 20. This week is full of cosmic influences, occult forces, and divine interventions that will shape your destiny and the world around you. Read on, if you dare, and discover what awaits you in this strange and wonderful week.

Astrology: The week begins with a new moon in Leo on August 14, marking a time of new beginnings, creativity, and self-expression. This is a great time to start a new project, pursue your passions, and show your true colors to the world. However, be careful not to be too arrogant, domineering, or egotistical, as this could backfire on you. The new moon also forms a trine with Uranus in Aries, bringing unexpected opportunities, surprises, and changes. Be open to new experiences, embrace innovation, and break free from your old patterns. The week ends with a full moon in Aquarius on August 20, highlighting the themes of humanitarianism, social justice, and collective consciousness. This is a time to connect with your friends, community, and humanity at large. Seek to make a positive difference in the world, but avoid being too detached, rebellious, or eccentric.

Numerology: The number of the week is 6, which represents harmony, balance, and responsibility. This is a week to focus on your relationships, family, and home. Seek to create peace and stability in your life, and take care of your loved ones. However, do not neglect yourself or your own needs. Find a healthy balance between giving and receiving, and between being supportive and independent. The number 6 also resonates with the planet Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. This is a week to enjoy the pleasures of life, such as art, music, romance, and nature. Appreciate the beauty around you, and express your feelings with grace and charm.

Tarot Base: The tarot card for the week is The Lovers, drawn from the major arcana based on the dominant planet of the week: Venus. This card represents love, choice, and harmony. This is a week to celebrate your relationships, whether they are romantic, platonic, or familial. You may also encounter a new love interest or a soulmate connection. However, this card also implies a decision that needs to be made. You may have to choose between two paths or two people. Follow your heart, but also use your logic and intuition. The Lovers card also suggests health improvements or lifestyle changes that involve balance and harmony. You may benefit from eating more fruits and vegetables, drinking more water, or doing some yoga or meditation.

Tarot Opposition: The tarot card that crosses The Lovers is The Snake, drawn from the Lenormand Tarot Deck. This card represents deception, betrayal, and temptation. This is the opposition that can be expected this week. You may face some challenges or obstacles in your relationships or choices. Someone may try to deceive you or seduce you away from your true path. Be wary of false friends or lovers who have ulterior motives. Do not let yourself be swayed by lies or illusions. Trust your instincts and stay loyal to yourself and your values.

Demonology: The most influential demon of week 33 is Prince Gäap. He is a powerful prince of hell who commands 66 legions of demons. He can transport people from one place to another in an instant. He can also teach philosophy and liberal arts. His area of greatest influence and interest is knowledge and travel.

Se princ Gäap wyl þisre wucan men lician to þæm þæt hī secan forboden oþþe gefeolicne cunnunge, þæt him oþþe oðrum scæðan mæg. Hē wyl eac men tempan to þæm þæt hī faran to þæm stowum þær hī nē syndon wilcume oþþe gesunde. Hē mæg him bēodan lease behātas oþþe mēdas for þæm þæt hī bēon geornfulle oþþe wandrade. Þæt geþylde þæt is lēohte to gefremmanne his geþylde is þæt þū sēo ofergeornful oþþe ofergeæpstigendlic butan gesceade þāra ādrysna. To þæm þæt þū mæge æscunian his geþylde, þū scealt bēon warlic and ārwurðfull þonne þū neawe rīcu cunnunge oþþe eorðcwēaras. Þū scealt eac sēcan ræd fram geswīðfeormendum welum and forbēodan þæm þæt þū trūwe fremdum oþþe ungecēðdum hlidum.

Prince Gäap is most likely to actually manifest his power somewhere near Mackinac Island, Michigan (45.859,-84.622), where he may cause some disturbances or disappearances among the tourists or locals.

Angelology: The most influential angel of week 33 is Bihram Rabba. The angel Bihram Rabba (also spelled Behram Rabba) is a guardian in Mandaeism. He is associated with the masbuta, or baptism ritual. Bihram is mentioned in Mandaean texts such as the Qolasta, and many Mandaean masbuta ritual prayers invoke his name. Bihram is often depicted as a warrior-angel, and he is sometimes associated with the planet Mars. In Mandaean mythology, Bihram is said to have helped the Mandaean prophet John the Baptist to defeat the evil forces of Yushamin and his sons. He can grant success in business and trade. He can also protect people from evil spirits and diseases. His area of greatest influence and interest is prosperity and health.

Bihram Rabba wyl þisre wucan men blētsian mid genōgsamnisse and wēlþēowdōme. Hē wyl eac men fylstan þæt hī ofercuman hiora fēore and cēapunga. Hē mæg him bēodan lāc oþþe geornfulnesse to þæm þæt hī beteran hiora endebyrdnesse oþþe hiora stīgendlice. Þæt geþylde þæt is lēohte to gefremmanne his geþylde is þæt þū sēo þancful and geornful. To þæm þæt þū mæge his geþylde geteohhian, þū scealt geþancfulnesse gecyðan for þæm þæt þū hafast and þīne wēole oþþe þīne welan dēlan mid oðrum þæm þe þearf is. Þū scealt eac gebiddan oþþe geornfullice smeagian on his naman and hine biddan for his fultume.

He is most likely to actually manifest his power somewhere near Berea, Kentucky (37.569,-84.296), where he may inspire some charitable or humanitarian acts among the residents or visitors.

Divination Method: The method of most significance for week 33 is Ornithomancy, which is divination by birds. This method involves observing the flight, behavior, or appearance of birds and interpreting their meaning or message. This method can be used this week to receive guidance or insight from the divine or nature. Birds can symbolize various aspects of life, such as freedom, joy, wisdom, or transformation. The typical practitioner of ornithomancy is a solo craft, although they may consult with other birdwatchers or experts. They develop the skill by studying the characteristics and habits of different birds, as well as their cultural or spiritual significance. They may also use books, cards, or apps to help them identify and interpret the birds they encounter.

Occult Practice: The occult practice of week 33 is Witchcraft. In the context of real-world spiritual practice, Witchcraft is a complex and multifaceted term that encompasses a myriad of beliefs, practices, and traditions. It is defined as the practice of using metaphysical methods and rituals to shift energy, effect change, create spells, or connect with a higher power. A witch is often seen as a person who holds a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, or ethereal information and uses that knowledge to alter the reality around them.

Magic is an integral component of witchcraft. It involves the manipulation of energy with the practitioner serving as the tool that manipulates this energy. Witches believe that everything contains energy: nature, orgasms, and of course, yourself.

The diversity within witchcraft is vast. There are many different beliefs, rituals, and guiding principles within witchcraft, making it impossible to give a one-size-fits-all definition. Some witches may practice ancestral or modern-day Western forms of spirituality. Wicca is a specific form of witchcraft that sees divinity in nature and often involves the practice of magic. Wiccans believe in tapping into a spirit world often referred to as the “otherworld” or drawing on an energy field surrounding all of us.

The perception of witches is often based on media portrayals and how witchcraft is addressed within religious or spiritual practices. However, your average witch could just be somebody who lives next to you and has this spiritual practice you don’t know about. Historically, the kind of spiritual practices that define witchcraft were once the basis of persecution, resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocent men and women in witch trials that spanned centuries. It’s only in more recent history that practitioners are able to openly participate in the rituals, spells, and ceremonies that define their spirituality.

Witchcraft as a real-world spiritual practice is diverse and multifaceted, encompassing various beliefs and practices from different cultures and traditions. Today, there are around a million practicing pagans in the U.S., many of whom identify as witches. Part of what draws some into these practices is that they are often earth-centered and polytheistic (worshipping multiple gods/goddesses), and females are allowed to be spiritual leaders instead of just males.

This practice can be used this week to manifest your desires, protect yourself or others, or heal yourself or others. However, be careful not to harm anyone or violate anyone's free will, as this week, the blowback could have 3-Square-3, negative consequences. The typical practitioner of Witchcraft can be a solo, group, or master/apprentice craft. They develop the skill by learning from books, mentors, traditions, or personal experience. They may also be born with the talent or inherit it from their ancestors. It is important to speak clearly -- Witchcraft in a single paragraph is like trying to illuminate the entirity of Buddhism or Hinduism in one paragraph.

Colors, Foods, and Numbers: The color that is waxing in power this week is gold, which represents wealth, success, and confidence. Wear this color to attract abundance and recognition in your endeavors. The food that is waxing in power this week is honey, which represents sweetness, healing, and wisdom. Eat this food to enhance your health and happiness in your life. The number that is waxing in power this week is 8, which represents power, authority, and karma. Align yourself with this number to achieve your goals and balance your actions and reactions.

The color that you should avoid this week is black, which represents darkness, negativity, and mystery. Avoid wearing this color to prevent attracting unwanted attention or trouble in your affairs. The food that you should avoid this week is garlic, which represents protection, strength, and warding off evil. Avoid eating this food to prevent repelling good luck or opportunities in your life. The number that you should avoid this week is 13, which represents bad luck, change, and transformation. Avoid associating with this number to prevent encountering misfortune or disruption in your plans.

Company to Watch: The merchant to watch for week 33 is Garmin Ltd. (GRMN), a multinational technology company that specializes in GPS navigation devices for various fields such as aviation, marine, automotive, fitness, and outdoor recreation. This merchant is influenced by the supernatural forces of Uranus and Prince Gäap this week. Uranus brings innovation and change to their products and services, making them more appealing and useful for their customers. However, Prince Gäap brings deception and temptation to their business and trade, making them more vulnerable and risky for their competitors. Beware of the serpent that lurks in the garden of Eden, for it may offer you a fruit that seems sweet but is actually poisonous. Do not trust everything you see or hear from this merchant, for they may have hidden agendas or flaws that could harm you or others. Instead, seek the guidance of Bihram Rabba and The Lovers card, for they will lead you to the true path of prosperity and harmony.

And so, my channeling for week 36 of 2023 comes to a close. I hope you found it informative, thought-provoking, and provocative. Ar hent d'an diskoulm eo dre ar prantad a hunvre hag a gompasioun. Practice mindfulness and compassion. Remember, the future is not fixed, but shaped by your choices and actions. You have the power to create your own destiny, but you also have to face the changes and the challenges of your deeds. Be wise, be brave, and be true to yourself.

Pragmatic Journey is Richard (rich) Wermske's life of recovery; a spiritual journey inspired by Buddhism, a career in technology and management with linux, digital security, bpm, and paralegal stuff; augmented with gaming, literature, philosophy, art and music; and compassionate kinship with all things living -- especially cats; and people with whom I share no common language.
