Strange of the Week 39, 2023

Greetings, seekers of the hidden wisdom. I am Madame Lenormand, a renowned gypsy mystic who has been granted the gift of divination by the spirits. I have come to share with you the secrets of the week 39 of 2023, from September 25 to October 1. This is a week of great power and potential, but also of danger and deception. Let us explore together the signs and symbols that will guide us through this mysterious time.

Astrology: The week includes a Harvest Moon in Aries, the sign of the warrior and the pioneer. This is a time to assert your individuality and courage, to take action and initiative, and to pursue your passions and goals. However, be careful not to act impulsively or aggressively, as this could lead to conflicts and accidents. The full moon also opposes Mercury in Libra, the sign of balance and harmony. This could create some communication difficulties, misunderstandings, or arguments. Try to be diplomatic and respectful, and avoid being too critical or judgmental. The week ends with a new moon in Libra, which marks a new cycle of relationships, partnerships, and collaborations. This is a time to seek peace and justice, to cooperate and compromise, and to appreciate beauty and art. However, be careful not to lose yourself in pleasing others, or to avoid making decisions for fear of upsetting the balance.

Numerology: The number of the week is 6, which is derived from adding the digits of the year (2+0+2+3=7) and the week number (3+9=12=1+2=3), and then adding them together (7+3=10=1+0=1) and multiplying by 6 (the number of days in the week). The number 6 represents harmony, love, family, home, responsibility, and service. This is a week to focus on your personal life, your emotional needs, and your domestic affairs. You may feel more nurturing, caring, and compassionate towards yourself and others. You may also feel more loyal, faithful, and committed to your relationships. However, be careful not to neglect your own interests or boundaries, or to become too dependent or codependent on others.Tarot Base: The dominant planet of the week is Venus, the planet of love, beauty, pleasure, and values. The tarot card associated with Venus is The Empress (III), which represents fertility, abundance, creativity, sensuality, and motherhood. This card suggests that this is a week to enjoy life's pleasures, to express your creativity, to nurture yourself and others, and to appreciate nature's bounty. You may feel more attractive, confident, and generous this week. You may also experience some growth or expansion in your personal or professional projects. However, be careful not to overindulge or overspend on material things or luxuries.

Tarot Opposition: The tarot card that crosses The Empress is The Garden (20) from the Lenormand Tarot Deck. This card represents society, community, public events, social gatherings, and networking. This card suggests that this is a week to interact with others, to share your ideas and opinions, to participate in social activities, and to expand your circle of contacts. You may meet new people, make new friends, or join new groups this week. You may also receive some recognition, praise, or support from others. However, be careful not to lose sight of your individuality, or to compromise your values or integrity for the sake of popularity or acceptance.

Demonology: The most influential demon this week is President Malphas, who commands 40 legions of spirits and has the power to build or destroy structures, to reveal enemies’ secrets, and to give good familiars. He appears as a crow or as a man with a hoarse voice. He is interested in architecture, engineering, politics, and warfare. His area of greatest influence and interest this week is the Middle East, where he may affect some events or situations related to the oil and gas industry, the peace and security situation, or the religious and cultural diversity.

Malphas intendit to sawan sēda discordes and cēases betwuh þām folce and þām nēodum þisses rīces, be þām þe hē wyrce sume gefeoht, slæga, oþþe wyrsas þe magon wyrcan heora getimbru, rēdu, oþþe rǣdnesse. Hē mæg eac gefysian oþþe beswīcan sume lāreowas oþþe gecyste þe habbaþ mihte oþþe geweald on þisse rīce, be þām þe hē hīm biede lease behātan oþþe gewritu þe magon þeowian his ærende. Hē is swīðost geteon to þām þe sind geornfulle on timbringe, wyrstringe, ætīewinge, oþþe wierdenne sum þing oþþe sumne mann on þisse rīce, swā swā gewyrcas, soldatan, spīas, oþþe ealdordōmas. Hē mæg beodan his fultum oþþe onfōn blōtas fram þām þe hine clypiaþ, ac hē hīe beswīcþ oþþe hīe wītiaþ hēage wirc for his þēnungum.

To avoid his attention, one should be honest, loyal, and humble.

Angelology: The most influential angel this week is Hadarniel, who guards the second gate of heaven and has a voice that penetrates through 200000 firmaments. He appears as a giant or as a man with a loud voice. He is interested in knowledge, wisdom, communication, and education. His area of greatest influence and interest this week is Europe, where he may affect some events or situations related to the education system, the media industry, the political dialogue, or the cultural heritage.

Hadarniel intendit to spredan lēoht and sōþ betwuh þām folce and þām nēodum þisses rīces, be þām þe hē onbēme sume niwan þing, onwreohnessa, oþþe rēdnisse þe magon wyrcan heora leornunga, ongiet, oþþe geþwærnesse. Hē mæg eac ætīewan sume gehegena oþþe gesewena þām þe secaþ his lār oþþe fultum on þisse rīce, be þām þe hē hīe ætīewe sume tācna, gesiþu, oþþe swefna þe magon gefrēondlunge heora geþōhtas oþþe heortan. Hē is swīðost geteon to þām þe sind geornfulle on gāstlīcum wæstme oþþe geondscīnunge on þisse rīce, swā swā dīglīce men, lārēowas, tīðeras, oþþe læderas. Hē mæg beodan his wærde oþþe bletsunge þām þe hine weorþiaþ oþþe hine hērgaþ. To tihtenne his hēafod man sceal bēon neorxna, gleaw, and weorþlic.

To specifically avoid Hadarniel’s attention, one should be indifferent, ignorant, and disrespectful. One should not show any interest or curiosity in learning new things or seeking higher wisdom. One should not acknowledge or appreciate the guidance or assistance of the angel. One should also not honor or praise the angel, or use his name in vain. One should act as if the angel does not exist or matter.

Divination Method: The strongest divination method this week is Onymancy. This is the art of reading the fingernails of a person to reveal their character, health, and future. To practice this method, one should examine the shape, size, color, texture, and markings of the nails, and compare them with a table of meanings. For example, long nails indicate a creative and artistic person, but also a nervous and restless one. White spots on the nails signify good luck or a happy event, but also a lack of calcium or zinc. A moon-shaped mark on the nail indicates a change or a journey, but also a possible illness or danger. Onymancy is particularly powerful this week to gain insight into oneself or others, to diagnose health problems or potential risks, and to predict the outcome of situations or decisions. Most believe Onymancy is a metaphysical calling. Few think Onymancy can be trained and many elder Onymancers will scoff at such a request. The most reputable Onymancers I have known spend most of their life "seeing but not saying" and only begin sharing what they see very late in life. Most Onymancers have a fettish object they've personally created from the clippings of hundreds, if not thousands, of people. The recipe for such has never been known to have been shared and is usually buried with the Onymancer when they die. Grave robbers have been known to have fallen to mysterious, horrific causes after plundering the fettish of an Onymancer's grave, crypt, or urn.

Occult Practice: The occult practice of the week is Shamanism. This is the practice of entering altered states of consciousness, such as trance or ecstasy, to communicate with the spirit world and to perform various functions, such as healing, divination, or soul retrieval. Shamans are usually chosen by the spirits or by their community, and undergo a process of initiation (rite-of-passage) that involves a symbolic death and rebirth. Shamans use various techniques to induce trance, such as drumming, dancing, singing, fasting, or ingesting psychoactive substances (if permitted to you by law or tribe). Shamans also use various tools and symbols, such as masks, costumes, rattles, feathers, or animal skins. Shamanism is a complex and diverse practice, and there is no one right way to do it. However, all shamans share a common goal: to use their skills to help others and to make the world a better place. Here are some examples of shamanic practices:

  • Healing: Shamans are often called upon to heal the sick and injured. They may do this by interacting with the spirit world to remove harmful energies or to bring in healing energies.
  • Divination: Shamans can also use their abilities to see into the future or to gain insights into the present. This information can be used to help people make decisions or to solve problems.
  • Spirituality: Shamanism is a deeply spiritual practice. Shamans often use their abilities to connect with the spirit world and to learn from the wisdom of the spirits.

Shamanism is a powerful and transformative practice. If you are interested in learning more about shamanism, this week is a particularly good time to find a shamanic teacher or mentor who can guide you on your journey; however, as always, the teacher will only manifest when the student is ready.

Color: The color that is waxing in power this week is Purple, which represents spirituality, intuition, imagination, and royalty. This color can help you connect with your higher self and your inner wisdom, to express your creativity and originality, and to feel confident and dignified. You can wear purple clothes or accessories to enhance your charisma and magnetism. You can also use purple candles or crystals to activate your third eye or crown chakra. The color that you should avoid this week is Yellow, which represents intellect, logic, communication, and optimism. This color can make you feel too rational or analytical, or too superficial or frivolous. It can also cause some nervousness or anxiety. You should avoid wearing yellow clothes or accessories that make you look dull or childish. You should also avoid using yellow objects or materials that make you feel restless or distracted.

Food: The food that is waxing in power this week is Chocolate, which represents indulgence, pleasure, romance, and happiness. This food can help you enjoy the sensual and emotional aspects of life, to attract love and affection, and to boost your mood and energy. You can eat chocolate as a treat or a gift, or add it to your drinks or desserts to enhance their taste and benefits. You can also use chocolate as a beauty product or a aphrodisiac. The food that you should avoid this week is Cheese, which represents comfort, nourishment, tradition, and stability. This food can make you feel too satisfied or complacent with your current situation. It can also cause some health problems such as indigestion, bloating, or allergies. You should avoid eating cheese or using it in your cooking or remedies. You should also avoid wearing cheese as a joke or a prank.

Number: The number that is waxing in power this week is 3, which represents creativity, expression, communication, and growth. This is a week to explore your talents and passions, to share your ideas and opinions, and to expand your horizons and opportunities. You can use the number 3 in your projects or activities to increase your chances of success or recognition. You can also use the number 3 as a symbol or a mantra to affirm your potential and purpose. The number that you should avoid this week is 8, which represents power, money, authority, and karma. This number can make you feel too ambitious or greedy, or too rigid or controlling. It can also bring some challenges or tests that require you to balance your material and spiritual needs. You should avoid using the number 8 in your endeavors or plans that involve risking something valuable or important. You should also avoid seeing the number 8 as a sign or a reward of something positive or negative.

Company to Watch: Hearken now, ye who gather round, to these words spoken past and into tomorrow though a vessel so true, for I shall tell you of the digger and merchant to watch this week: Noble Energy, Inc (NBL).This merchant of many talents is influenced by the Harvest Moon in Aries, which brings both great opportunity and great challenge. On the one hand, the merchant may benefit from increased demand, production, and profit from its black gold and powerful vapors. On the other hand, it may face increased competition, regulation, or conflict from its many foul enemies both within and without.

  • The Nobles of Noble Energy, Inc are also uplifted by the numerological dominance of the number 6, which speaks to their individual service, responsibility, and loyalty. This merchant may excel in providing quality and faithful products and services to its buyers and communities. However, it may also struggle with new comings and goings related to land, sea, and air. The raven whispers of a fox in the fold, a wolf in sheep's clothing. Cleanse the palace of the raven's curse, the forest of the fox's poison.
  • In addition, Noble Energy, Inc is influenced by the tarot cards of The Empress and The Garden. These cards suggest that the company may discover a young talent among its best seers and diggers o'the earth. The Eagle Hen has a rare opportunity to lay a golden egg that sings a siren song to the fearful. Let the hen run her nest or fear will spread like burning thatch.
  • In my vision, I see merchant laborers are being swayed by the demon President Malphas and the angel Hadarniel. President Malphas is associated with strategy, power, revelation, and justice. His influence can be both positive and negative, depending on the intentions of those who succumb to his arguments coming from both sides of the mouth. Hadarniel is associated with light, truth, and spiritual growth. His influence can help the merchant princes to make wise decisions and to achieve its goals in a harmonious and ethical way should they remove the wax solidifying in their ears.
  • However, I also see that there is some corruption within the merchant, and that this corruption is being influenced by the leavings of a team that is no longer a team. This suggests that there are some workers within the merchant who labor against the legitimate path preferring to slog through bogs producing foul vapors. Cast out those who would harm their friends and neighbors for gold.
  • Noble Energy, Inc is also in the waters' reflection shewing to be under the influence of an external Nuckelavee whispering curses in a Lieutenant's ear trying to harm a very specific agreement that is supposedly transformative. This suggests that there is a larger struggle taking place behind the scenes, and that the merchant is merely caught between two jagged rocks.

This week you should pay attention to this merchant's heralds, as they may have some messages for your own comings and goings. You may also gain insight from this merchant’s outward signs. This merchant is a reflection of the cosmic forces that are at play this week. Remember that everything is connected, and nothing happens by chance. I tell you, if you want greater visibility, take one of their Lieutenants to chat in a pub with wine and cheese (although you won't need to lubricate those lips too much, you have me word on that.

We are now at the end of the channeling for week 39 of 2023. I hope you have found it useful, enlightening, and intriguing. Pep ober a gemer a zo hezoù, neuze omp gouest da ober gant kalon ha responsabilaidigezh. Act with kindness and responsibility. 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.
