Strange of the Week: Week 41, 2023

Greetings, seekers of the hidden mysteries. I am Madame Lenormand, a renowned diviner and fortune-teller from the 19th century. I have returned from the spirit realm to share with you my insights and predictions for the week 41 of 2023, from October 9 to October 15. Prepare yourselves for a week of surprises, challenges, and opportunities, as the stars, the cards, the demons, the angels, and the birds reveal their secrets to us.

Astrology: The astrological conditions of this week are marked by a waning crescent moon in Virgo on October 9, followed by a new moon in Libra on October 15. The waning crescent moon in Virgo brings a time of reflection, analysis, and purification. It is a good time to review your progress, evaluate your results, and eliminate what is unnecessary or harmful in your life. The new moon in Libra brings a fresh start for relationships, harmony, and justice. It is a good time to initiate partnerships, negotiate agreements, and seek balance in your life.

Numerology: The numerological analysis for this week reveals that the number 5 is dominant. This number represents change, freedom, and adventure. It indicates that this week will be full of unexpected events, opportunities, and challenges that will test your adaptability and flexibility. You may feel restless, curious, and eager to explore new horizons. You may also encounter some instability, chaos, and unpredictability that will require you to be resourceful and creative. The number 5 invites you to embrace change as a positive force for growth and transformation.

Tarot Base: The tarot card drawn from the full deck based on the dominant planet of the week is The Lovers. This card is associated with Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and travel. The Lovers represents love, choice, and duality. It suggests that this week you will face some important decisions or dilemmas that will affect your relationships or your values. You may have to choose between two options or paths that seem equally appealing or challenging. You may also have to balance your heart and your mind, your passion and your reason, or your self and your partner.

Tarot Opposition: The tarot card drawn from the Lenormand deck that crosses The Lovers is The Snake. This card represents deception, temptation, and betrayal. It suggests that this week you will encounter some lies or secrets that will undermine your trust or loyalty. You may have to deal with some false friends or enemies who will try to manipulate or harm you. You may also have to resist some seductions or allurements that will lead you astray or into danger.

Demonology: The most influential demon this week is Duke Focalor. He is one of the 72 demons listed in the Ars Goetia, a grimoire of medieval demonology. He is described as a man with wings like a griffin's. He has power over wind and water and can cause storms and shipwrecks. He can also kill men and drown them in water. He commands 30 legions of spirits.

He is most likely to manifest his power somewhere near St. Michaels, Maryland, USA (38.784, -76.226), a coastal town that is known for its maritime history and culture. He will target the tourists and the residents alike, trying to ruin their vacations or livelihoods. He will also attempt to destroy the historical and cultural heritage of the place, such as the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum or the St. Michaels Museum.

Angelology: The most influential angel this week is Baraquiel. He is one of the 72 angels of the Shemhamphorash, a name derived from the Hebrew Torah that refers to the 72-letter name of God. He is also one of the 7 archangels in some traditions, ruling over lightning and miracles. He is depicted as a man with a rainbow-colored cloak and a staff of lightning. He grants luck, fortune, success, and happiness. He also protects from evil and brings joy and laughter.

He is most likely to manifest his power somewhere near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada (50.36, -105.56), a city that is known for its giant sculptures and attractions, such as Mac the Moose or the Tunnels of Moose Jaw. He will bless the visitors and the residents alike, encouraging them to have fun and explore the wonders of the city. He will also support them in their endeavors and aspirations, like a rainbow that promises hope and fulfillment.

Divination Method: The method of greatest perspective this week is ornithomancy (divination by birds). This is an ancient practice that involves observing the flight, songs, cries, and behavior of birds to interpret their messages from the gods or spirits. Birds are considered sacred animals that can communicate divine will or reveal future events. This method can be used this week to gain insight into your personal situation, your relationships, or your environment. You may notice some patterns, signs, or omens in the birds around you that will guide you or warn you. The typical practitioner of ornithomancy is someone who has a strong connection with nature and a keen sense of intuition. They may be solo or work in groups with other bird-watchers or diviners. They may develop the skill through study, practice, or experience, or they may be born with the talent.

Occult Practice: The occult practice of the week is transmutation. This is a process of changing something completely, especially into something different or better. It can be applied to physical matter, such as turning base metals into gold or silver, or to spiritual matter, such as transforming negative energy into positive energy or enhancing one's abilities or qualities. This practice can be useful this week to improve your situation, your health, or your well-being. You may have the opportunity to change something that is not working for you or to create something new and valuable. The typical practitioner of transmutation is someone who has a high level of knowledge, skill, and power. They may work solo or in groups with other alchemists or magicians. They may develop the skill through experimentation, research, or instruction, or they may be born with the gift.

Color, Food, and Number: The color that is waxing in power this week is green. This color represents growth, healing, and abundance. It can help you attract prosperity, harmony, and balance in your life. You should wear green clothes, accessories, or jewelry, or surround yourself with green plants, crystals, or candles. The color that you should avoid this week is red. This color represents passion, aggression, and danger. It can trigger anger, conflict, or violence in yourself or others. You should avoid wearing red clothes, accessories, or jewelry, or exposing yourself to red lights, fire, or blood.

The food that is waxing in power this week is honey. This food represents sweetness, love, and wisdom. It can nourish your body, mind, and soul, and enhance your attractiveness, creativity, and intuition. You should eat honey by itself or with other foods, or use it as a medicine, a beauty product, or a ritual ingredient. The food that you should avoid this week is meat. This food represents flesh, blood, and death. It can harm your health, karma, and vibration, and lower your compassion, empathy, and awareness. You should avoid eating meat or any animal products, or witnessing any animal cruelty or slaughter.

The number that is waxing in power this week is 9. This number represents completion, fulfillment, and enlightenment. It can help you achieve your goals, realize your dreams, and attain your highest potential. You should pay attention to the number 9 or any multiples of 9 in your surroundings, such as dates, times, addresses, or phone numbers. They may have some significance or message for you. The number that you should avoid this week is 4. This number represents limitation, restriction, and hardship. It can hinder your progress, challenge your faith, and test your patience. You should avoid the number 4 or any multiples of 4 in your surroundings, such as dates, times, addresses, or phone numbers. They may bring some bad luck or trouble for you.

Company to Watch: The merchant to watch this week is Ford Motor (F). This is a company that produces automobiles and commercial vehicles under the Ford and Lincoln brands. It also offers automotive finance, vehicle leasing, vehicle service, and automotive parts. The supernatural forces influencing this merchant are complex and contradictory.

  • The new moon in Libra favors its partnerships, negotiations, and balance.
  • The Lovers card brings love, choice, and duality.
  • The angel Baraquiel bestows good fortune, success, and happiness.
  • The color green promotes growth, healing, and abundance.
  • The food honey nourishes sweetness, love, and wisdom.
  • The number 9 signifies completion, fulfillment, and enlightenment.

All these factors suggest that this merchant will have a positive week with some opportunities, blessings, and achievements.

On the other hand:

  • The waning crescent moon in Virgo triggers reflection, analysis, and purification. The Snake card indicates deception, temptation, and betrayal.
  • The demon Focalor causes destruction, chaos, and death.
  • The color red provokes passion, aggression, and danger.
  • The food meat harms flesh, blood, and death.
  • The number 4 implies limitation, restriction, and hardship.

All these factors imply that this merchant will have a negative week with some challenges, losses, and conflicts. Therefore, you should be cautious and discerning when dealing with this merchant. You may find some benefits or advantages, but the drawbacks are legitimate; consider yourself warned, forces in opposition are entrenched and will be upset by the change of heart in the C-Suite.

My dire warning and recommendation for this merchant is:

Beware of the snake that lurks in the grass,
For it may bite your heel and poison your blood.
A snake of deception and temptation,
Of betrayal and harm,
Of lies and secrets.

Seek the lovers that shine in the sun,
For they may unite your heart and mind.
A lovers of love and choice,
Of duality and balance,
Of harmony and partnership.

This is the end of my channeling for week 41 of 2023. I hope you have enjoyed this journey into the hidden mysteries of the universe. I invite you to join me again next week for another glimpse into the future. Until then, may the stars, the cards, the demons, the angels, and the birds be with you. Pep amzer a vuhez holl zo un tu da greskiñ, neuze omp gouest da zañsal hor chadennoù gant ur c'halon a galon ha furnez. Embrace your challenges with courage and wisdom. And 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 consequences of your deeds. Be wise, be brave, and be true to yourself.
