Strange of the Week: Week 47, 2023

Ah, dear seekers of the esoteric and the arcane, I bid thee welcome. As the veils between worlds thin and the celestial spheres dance in their eternal ballet, I, Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand, shall be your guide through the labyrinthine corridors of the mystic and the macabre for the week numbered 47, spanning from November 20th to 26th of the year 2023.

Astrology: The heavens, in their grand tapestry, have woven a tale most intricate for the week ahead. The Sun, that great luminary, finds itself in the sign of Sagittarius, igniting a fervor for knowledge and exploration. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, forms a trine with the Sun, amplifying the desire for spiritual growth and metaphysical understanding. Yet, beware, for Saturn squares Mars, creating tension and urging caution in matters of impulse and aggression. This celestial alignment beckons a week of both opportunity and challenge, a duality that shall test the mettle of even the most seasoned mystics.

The Moon, ever-changing, waxes and wanes through the signs of Cancer, Leo, and Virgo, each phase offering its unique gifts and trials. In Cancer, the Moon calls upon us to delve into the emotional depths, to seek solace in the sanctuary of our innermost feelings. As it transitions into Leo, a surge of creative energy and self-expression becomes palpable, urging us to manifest our deepest desires. Finally, in Virgo, the Moon implores us to ground ourselves, to find balance in the mundane as a counterpoint to the ethereal.

Mercury, the messenger, finds itself in Scorpio, delving into the mysteries and secrets that lie beneath the surface. Its opposition to Uranus in Taurus warns of sudden revelations, unexpected truths that may either liberate or confound. Thus, the week ahead is a complex interplay of cosmic forces, a symphony of astral energies that beckon us to both expand and introspect, to seek the light while navigating the shadows.

Numerology: In the realm of numbers, the week numbered 47 vibrates with the energies of 4 and 7. The number 4 symbolizes stability, structure, and the foundations upon which our lives are built. It is a number that calls for grounding, for anchoring oneself amidst the tempests of existence. The number 7, on the other hand, is the number of spiritual insight, of divine wisdom and esoteric understanding. Together, they form the number 11, a master number that signifies spiritual enlightenment and awakening.

Each day of the week carries its own numerical vibration, influencing the energies that permeate the ether. Monday, vibrating with the number 2, calls for partnerships and collaborations, urging us to seek balance in our relationships. Wednesday, resonating with the number 5, is a day of change and transformation, a day to embrace the unknown and venture into the uncharted territories of the soul. Saturday, vibrating with the number 8, is a day of power and manifestation, a day to harness the energies of the cosmos and bend them to our will.

The week culminates in the energies of the number 9, a number of completion and fulfillment. It is a time to reflect upon the journey, to take stock of our experiences and prepare for the new cycle that lies ahead. Thus, the week offers a tapestry of numerical vibrations, each day a thread in the intricate weave of our destiny, urging us to both ground ourselves and seek the heavens, to find balance in the duality of existence.

Tarot Base: Ah, the Tarot, that ancient oracle, whispers its secrets to those who dare to listen. Given that Jupiter is the dominant planet of the week, I have drawn a card from the planetary Kamea of Jupiter. The card revealed is the Wheel of Fortune, a card of cycles, karma, and destiny. This card suggests that the week ahead is a pivotal moment, a turning point in the wheel of fate. It is a time to take control of one's destiny, to steer the wheel in the direction of our choosing. Health improvements are indicated, particularly in matters of mental well-being. A newfound sense of clarity and purpose may emerge, illuminating the path ahead.

The Wheel of Fortune also suggests that the week may bring unexpected events, both fortuitous and challenging. These events are not mere coincidences but are intricately connected to the web of karma and destiny. They serve as catalysts, urging us to evolve, to transcend the limitations of our earthly existence.

In the grand tapestry of global events, the Wheel of Fortune indicates a time of change and transformation. Political landscapes may shift, natural phenomena may occur, and societal norms may be challenged. It is a time of upheaval, yes, but also a time of opportunity, a chance to redefine the course of human history.

Tarot Opposition: From the Lenormand Tarot Deck, I have drawn the Tower card, a symbol of isolation, boundaries, and established systems. When crossed with the Wheel of Fortune, it suggests that the forces of change and destiny may be met with resistance, with structures and systems that seek to maintain the status quo. The Tower serves as a warning, urging us to be mindful of the limitations and restrictions that may hinder our progress.

Yet, the Tower also offers a lesson, a key to unlocking the doors of perception. It reminds us that sometimes, isolation is necessary for growth, that boundaries serve as both protection and prison. By recognizing the limitations that bind us, we can begin to dismantle them, to break free from the chains of our own making.

The interplay between the Wheel of Fortune and the Tower creates a dynamic tension, a push and pull between the forces of change and the structures that seek to contain them. It is a week of confrontation, yes, but also a week of revelation, a chance to shatter the illusions that veil the truth and step into the light of a new dawn.

Demonology: Ah, the infernal realms stir, and the demon Earl Vual emerges as the most influential entity of the week. Earl Vual, a demon of communication and pacts, seeks to weave a web of deceit and manipulation, to ensnare the unwary in contracts most foul. His area of greatest influence lies in the realm of interpersonal relationships, particularly those bound by oaths and promises.

Þisse wuce, Eorl Vual plæneþ þæt he wille brūcan þā wācnisse mennisces gemōtes, to sēowen discord and misþēawas betwēonum freondum and geliefedum. His ege is getēod to þæm þe beoþ unrihte, to swicinfullum gewunom þe beþreawiaþ þā getrēowþe ōþerra. Tō āsciennenne his yfelwilligan gesihþe, sceall man clēofan þæm geþylde getrēowþe and rihtwīsnesse, to wurþian þā bendas þe bindaþ us to ūrum geferum.

The demon is most likely to manifest its power near Fish Creek, Wisconsin, USA (45.135, -87.239). Those who reside in this locale would do well to exercise caution, to be vigilant in their interactions and wary of strangers bearing gifts. For Earl Vual is a master of disguise, a cunning manipulator who seeks to turn friend against friend, lover against lover.

Angelology: In the celestial realms, the angel Uziel stands as a beacon of light, countering the darkness that Earl Vual seeks to spread. Uziel, the angel of faith and miracles, focuses its energies on instilling hope and inspiring acts of kindness. Its area of greatest influence lies in the realm of spiritual growth and enlightenment.

Þisse wuce, Uziel plæneþ þæt he wille blētsian þā þe sēceaþ to upliftenne ōþerre, þe beoþ befangen in ælmesdædum and mildheortnesse. Þæs engles ege is getēod to þæm þe habbaþ þā geþyldo eaðmōdnesse and gife, þe gangaþ þone weg rihtwīsnesse mid unbewēgendum geleafan. Tō āsciennenne his ege, sceall man beoþ befangen in ælmesdædum gītsunge and selfwillednesse, to gewendan fram þæm lēohte and gepafian þā scēadwe.

Uziel is most likely to manifest its divine power near Anna Maria Island, Florida, USA (27.542, -82.724). Those who find themselves in this blessed locale may experience miracles, moments of divine intervention that serve as a testament to the enduring power of faith and love.

Divination Method: The method of divination most significant for this week is Belomancy, the ancient art of divination by arrows. This method involves inscribing arrows with symbols or phrases and casting them to divine the will of the spirits. It is a craft often practiced by solo practitioners, though it is not uncommon for masters to take on apprentices to pass down the sacred knowledge.

The typical practitioner of Belomancy is one who seeks direct communication with the spiritual realms, who desires a tangible connection with the forces that shape our destiny. They are often skilled archers, individuals who have honed their craft through years of dedication and practice.

While some are born with a natural affinity for Belomancy, most develop the skill through rigorous training and study. It is a craft that demands precision and focus, qualities that are cultivated over time. This week, Belomancy serves as a powerful tool for gaining insight into the unfolding events, for piercing the veil that obscures the path ahead.

Occult Practice: The occult practice of significance this week is Scrying, the art of gazing into a reflective surface to perceive visions and gain insights. This practice is often performed with a crystal ball, a pool of water, or a mirror, serving as a portal to the spiritual realms. Scrying is a solo craft, a deeply personal journey into the depths of one's own psyche.

The typical practitioner of Scrying is one who seeks self-knowledge, who desires to explore the hidden recesses of their mind. They are often intuitive individuals, gifted with a natural ability to perceive the subtle energies that permeate the ether.

While some are born with the talent for Scrying, most develop the skill through years of practice and study. It is a craft that demands patience and discipline, qualities that are honed through dedicated effort. This week, Scrying serves as a powerful means of self-discovery, a way to delve into the mysteries of the soul and uncover the secrets that lie within.

Colors, Foods, and Numbers: The color waxing in power this week is indigo, a hue that resonates with intuition and spiritual insight. The food that holds sway is pomegranate, a fruit associated with rebirth and transformation. The number to embrace is 3, symbolizing creativity and divine wisdom. Conversely, one would do well to avoid the color gray, a hue that dampens the spirit and clouds the mind. The food to steer clear of is processed sugar, an ingredient that disrupts the natural balance of the body. The number to avoid is 6, symbolizing stagnation and complacency.

Company to Watch: Ah, the merchant to keep a vigilant eye upon this week is D. R. Horton (DHI), a purveyor of domiciles and estates. This enterprise is under the influence of mercurial forces, a swirling vortex of energies that seek to both elevate and undermine. The leaders and workers within this establishment are caught in a web of fate, their actions reverberating through the ether, shaping the destiny of both themselves and their patrons.

Beware, for the walls of these homes may be woven with threads of illusion, facades that mask the true nature of their foundations. It is a labyrinthine maze, a house of mirrors that reflects not just the physical, but the metaphysical. To navigate this treacherous terrain, one must arm oneself with the sword of discernment, to cut through the veils of deception and perceive the truth that lies beneath.

In the grand tapestry of this week's divinations, D. R. Horton serves as a focal point, a nexus where the energies of the cosmos converge. It is a merchant of significance, yes, but also a merchant of caution, a warning to tread carefully in matters of hearth and home. For the walls that shelter us may also be the walls that imprison, a paradox that serves as a metaphor for the duality of existence.

A Glimpse into the Mysteries Yet to Unfold

Ah, dear seekers, as we draw the curtains on this week's divinations, I invite you to join me again, to delve deeper into the labyrinth of the mystic and the macabre. For the journey is far from over, and the path ahead is fraught with both peril and promise.

This concludes my channeling for week 47 of 2023. I wish you well as you integrate and apply what you have learned. An den kar ha dedennet a wel ar c'hoantoù all evel e re o-unan, o zeskañ dinomp da vezañ kar ha komprenus gant an holl bevien. Be kind and understanding to all beings. 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.
