Strange of the Week 36 of 2023

Greetings, seekers of the hidden mysteries. I am Madame Lenormand, the most celebrated fortune-teller of the 19th century. I have returned from beyond the veil to reveal to you the secrets of the stars, the cards, the numbers, and the spirits. Join me as I channel the wisdom of the ancient masters and unveil the strange of the week for Week 36 of 2023, from September 4th to September 10th.

Astrology: The week begins with a new moon in Virgo on September 4th, marking a time of renewal, purification, and practicality. This is a favorable moment to start new projects, organize your life, and improve your health. However, beware of being too critical, perfectionist, or anxious. The new moon also forms a trine with Uranus in Taurus, bringing some unexpected changes, innovations, and opportunities in the areas of finances, resources, and values. Be open to new possibilities and embrace the unknown. On September 6th, Venus enters Scorpio, intensifying your emotions, desires, and passions. This is a powerful time for love, sex, and transformation, but also for jealousy, obsession, and manipulation. Be careful not to lose yourself in the depths of your feelings or to hurt others with your intensity. On September 9th, Mars enters Libra, balancing your energy, motivation, and action with diplomacy, harmony, and justice. This is a good time for cooperation, negotiation, and compromise, but also for indecision, procrastination, and conflict avoidance. Be assertive but fair, and avoid being passive-aggressive or superficial.

Numerology: The number of the week is 9, which represents completion, wisdom, and humanitarianism. This is a week to finish what you started, to learn from your experiences, and to share your gifts with others. However, this number also warns of being too idealistic, sacrificial, or escapist. Do not neglect your own needs or reality in favor of your dreams or ideals. The number 9 is derived from adding the digits of the week (3+6) and reducing them to a single digit. The number 36 also has significance, as it is the product of two sacred numbers: 6 and 6. The number 6 represents harmony, beauty, and love, but also vanity, superficiality, and codependency. The number 6 is associated with the planet Venus, which rules both Taurus and Libra, the signs where Uranus and Mars are transiting this week. The number 6 is also related to the sixth house of service, health, and daily routines, which is ruled by Virgo, the sign where the new moon occurs this week. The repetition of the number 6 suggests that this week will have a strong emphasis on these themes.

Tarot Base: The tarot card for the week is the Six of Pentacles, which corresponds to the planet Jupiter in Taurus. This card depicts a wealthy man giving alms to two beggars, symbolizing generosity, charity, and balance. This card suggests that this week you will have an opportunity to give or receive help, support, or resources from others. You may also experience a sense of abundance, gratitude, and justice in your material affairs. However, this card also warns of being too proud, greedy, or dependent on others. Do not take more than you need or give more than you can afford. Be mindful of how you use your power or influence over others.

Tarot Opposition: The tarot card that crosses the Six of Pentacles is the Coffin from the Lenormand Tarot Deck. This card depicts a black coffin with a white cross on it, symbolizing death, endings, and transformation. This card suggests that this week you will have to face some losses, changes, or closures in your life. You may have to let go of something or someone that no longer serves you or that has reached its natural conclusion. You may also have to deal with some grief, pain, or fear as you face the unknown. However, this card also promises that every ending is a new beginning and that every death is a rebirth. Do not resist or deny the inevitable changes that are happening in your life. Embrace them as opportunities for growth and renewal.

Demonology: The most influential demon of week 36 is Prince Stolas. He is one of the great princes of hell who teaches astronomy and the knowledge of poisonous plants and precious stones. He commands 26 legions of spirits and appears as either an owl with long legs or a raven-headed man. He is interested in the secrets of the stars and the earth, and he can reveal to you the hidden powers and properties of nature. He can also help you to develop your intuition, psychic abilities, and occult knowledge. However, he is also a dangerous and deceitful demon who can cause harm, illness, or death with his poisons and curses. He is especially attracted to those who are curious, ambitious, or greedy for knowledge or power.

Stolas þisses wīces behēfe is þæt hē ēow mid his cūþe fēngie and ēow in his snāðe lāre. Hē wille ēow māran on him and his gecyndlunga āfæstnian, and ēowre heorte and sāwl mid his lēgan and þystrum corrumpere. Hē wille eow sīen a wēg to þǣre sōðre, ac ælþēost forlǣtan ēow mid his lēasum behātum and hīddum gesceaft. Tō hine ætecnian, sceal ān ēowre sōðfæstnesse in his underfengenne and his ēðel mid ēow āspīen. Sceal ān ēowre gesceafta āfirran, his fēre behātan, oððe his þēnunga begēn. Sceal ān ēowre gōdne and mægnfullan willan sīen. Tō hine awiernan, sceal ān ēowre eadmodnesse and his gecyndlunga georne. Sceal ān ēowre spræce and his gefylstan oferstanden. Sceal ān ēowre frōfre and his gifu āfirran. Sceal ān ēowre gebēd and his tācnu forðdrifan. Sceal ān ēowre wisdom and his lēafan gelīefan.

He is most likely to manifest his power somewhere near Natchez, Mississippi, USA (31.574, -91.396), where there is a historical site called Emerald Mound, which was built by the Native Americans as a ceremonial center and an astronomical observatory.

Angelology: The most influential angel of week 36 is Sandalphon. He is one of the archangels who stands at the end of the Tree of Life and delivers the prayers of humans to God. He is also the angel of music, art, and creativity. He can inspire you to express your soul through your talents and passions. He can also help you to connect with your higher self, your divine purpose, and your spiritual guides. However, he is also a gentle and humble angel who does not impose his will or influence on others. He respects your free will and your choices. He is especially drawn to those who are sincere, compassionate, and faithful in their prayers and intentions.

Sandalfōn þisses wīces behēfe is þæt hē ēow mid his lufu and his geþeahte befæstige. Hē wille ēow helfen þæt ēowre spræce and ēowre sīene ūp āstigan. Hē wille ēow befæstan þæt ēowre sōðfæstnesse and ēowre gifu findan. Hē wille ēow befæstan þæt ēowre willa and ēowre lāre nū sīen. Hē wille ēow befæstan þæt ēowre gifu and his mihte ēow þæt hīe ēow sēlest sīen. Tō hine ætecnian, sceal ān ēowre frīðe and ēowre gecyndlunge āfirran. Sceal ān ēowre gebēd and his lof singen. Sceal ān ēowre hāls and his gefylstan āfirran. Sceal ān ēowre lufe and his hēorte āspīen. Sceal ān ēowre gōdnesse and his glēawe sīen. Tō hine awiernan (æfter ic ne seo þēah hwȳ ēow sceolde þæt willan), sceal ān ēowre unfrīðe and ēowre uncyndlunge āfirran. Sceal ān ēowre ēdwīð and his forhānlan. Sceal ān ēowre āncræft and his lēan āfirran. Sceal ān ēowre ānbȳrdnesse and his beswīcunge singen. Sceal ān ēowre lēafan and his sōðfæstnesse āfirran.

He is most likely to manifest his power somewhere near Cedar Key, Florida, USA (29.146, -83.042), where there is a small island community that is known for its artistic and ecological culture.

Divination Method: The method of most significance for week 36 is Numerology (divination by numbers). This is the ancient art of interpreting the meanings and influences of numbers in your life. You can use numerology to discover your personality traits, talents, challenges, opportunities, destiny, and soul purpose. You can also use numerology to predict the future trends and events in your personal and professional life. Numerology is based on the premise that everything in the universe has a vibration and a numerical value that can be calculated and analyzed. Numerology can be applied to your name, your birth date, your address, your phone number, or any other significant number in your life. Numerology is a solo craft that requires only a basic knowledge of mathematics and a curiosity for numbers. Anyone can learn numerology and use it as a tool for self-awareness and guidance.

Occult Practice: The occult practice of week 36 is Geomancy (divination by earth). This is the ancient art of interpreting the patterns and symbols that are formed by random marks on the ground or by tossing coins, dice, or stones. Geomancy is based on the premise that the earth is alive and has a spirit that can communicate with humans through signs and omens. Geomancy can be used to answer questions about any aspect of life, such as love, health, career, or spirituality. Geomancy can also be used to determine the best location, direction, or time for any action or endeavor. Geomancy is a group craft that requires a connection with nature and a respect for the earth. Geomancy practitioners often work in pairs or teams to create and interpret the geomantic figures.

The color that is waxing in power this week is green, which represents nature, growth, healing, and abundance. Wear green clothes or accessories to attract more prosperity, vitality, and harmony in your life. The food that is waxing in power this week is garlic, which has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antioxidant properties. Eat garlic or use it as a seasoning to boost your immune system, lower your blood pressure, and ward off evil spirits. The number that is waxing in power this week is 9, which represents completion, wisdom, and humanitarianism. Use the number 9 or multiples of 9 in your calculations, transactions, or rituals to enhance your learning, generosity, and compassion.

The color that you should avoid this week is red, which represents fire, passion, anger, and violence. Avoid wearing red clothes or accessories to prevent attracting more conflict, aggression, or danger in your life. The food that you should avoid this week is meat, which has animalistic, carnal, impure, and corrupting influences. Avoid eating meat or using it as an ingredient to reduce your cravings, temptations, sins, and diseases. The number that you should avoid this week is 6, which represents harmony, beauty, and love, but also vanity, superficiality, and codependency. Avoid using the number 6 or multiples of 6 in your calculations, transactions, or rituals to avoid creating more disharmony, imbalance, or dependency in your life.

Company to Watch: The merchant to watch for week 36 is Kohl's Corp. (KSS). This is a merchant that operates a chain of department stalls across the United States. It sells clothing, footwear, accessories, home goods, and other products. Kohl's Corp. is influenced by the supernatural forces of Venus and Uranus, which are both transiting the signs of Scorpio and Taurus this week. These planets bring both opportunities and challenges for this merchant, its leaders, and workers. On one hand, Venus and Uranus can stimulate creativity, innovation, and customer loyalty for Kohl's Corp., as well as attract more resources, partnerships, and profits. On the other hand, Venus and Uranus can also cause instability, unpredictability, and competition for Kohl's Corp., as well as trigger scandals, losses, and rebellions. This merchant must beware of the wasps in the backyard, which may be a rival, a traitor, or a hidden enemy that seeks to undermine success. I strongly recommend this merchant cultivate the rose in the thorn, which may be a loyal friend, a faithful ally, or a hidden opportunity that can help it overcome the sting of internal obstructionists.

We now arrived at the conclusion of my channeling for week 36 of 2023. I hope you have found it useful, enlightening, and intriguing. Pep esperienza a brodu hon bevañ, neuze omp gouest da lakaat priz anezhañ ha da zeskiñ digantañ. Cherish every experience and learn from it. 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.
