Hello to all my readers, I as you have noticed I have not posted in a long time. I have had a lot going on in my life and well I just do not have time anymore. I am sad to say that it is time to say good bye. I will no longer be posting on here at all, or responding to any comments. As the say all good things must come to an end. This blog was a great time, I learned alot while I was writing all the posts and met alot of great people. Thank you all for your support. I will leave this blog up since many of you still come to it, at least as long as wordpress allows. Not sure what the policy is on how long a blog can be inactive. Anyway thanks again & blessed be.

Happy New Year Everyone!!!  Hope you all had a great new year. Mine stunk, I have been sick in bed w/ a stomach bug, but I am feeling better now. Keeping with our promise we are going to be posting everyday & also keeping up to date with our pages. We are also going to be adding some new stuff so be sure to keep checking back. This is going to be a great year for us. We would like to thank everyone that has stuck by throughout the years, even though we haven’t been posting.  And now for today’s post, we are going to continue where we left off with out last post.

Virgo
The Sign of Reason
August 23 through September 22

Planet Mercury
Element Earth
Quality Mutable
Day Wednesday
Season Summer
Colors Navy blue, Gray, Green, Tan
Plants Fern, Chrysanthemum, Sage
Perfume Patchouli
Gemstones Apatite, Aventurine, White Opal, Peridot
Metal Mercury

The visual depiction of Virgo is a young woman holding shafts of wheat. Virgo is commonly thought of as the “virgin” but it is important to note that the word virgin actually has 2 meanings: the most common meaning refers to a sexually inexperienced individual, but is also means “an independent woman who did things on her own terms and over whom no man held dominion.” Virgos thrive when they are able to do things their own way.

The dual meaning of the word virgin carries over into the dual nature that most Virgos display. Sometimes they are completely confident with their opinions & competence, but other times they are filled with self-doubt and naivete as a young beginner. This aspect of Virgos character correlates perfectly with the fact that Virgo is 1 of the the 4 mutable, or changeable signs. The other 3 are Gemini, Pisces & Sagittarius.

The Sun passes through mutable signs when we here on Earth are preparing for the change of the seasons, and people born during the time of these mutable signs are thought to be highly adaptable under many circumstances. Flexible and open to change, these individuals deal with each situation depending on the needs and desires of the moment. Virgos are more comfortable adapting to outside influences than they are to imposing their will on others.

The shafts of wheat held by the strong young woman represent Virgo’s connection with the earth; this is key because Virgo is an Earth sign — 1 of the 3 signs focused on physical well-being and the practical matters of daily life. The other 2 Earth signs are Taurus & Capricorn. The element of earth symbolizes logic, dependability, and a sense of duty to those who are considered valuable & worthy. People born under the time that the Sun is traveling through one of the Earth signs are most reliable & responsible. They have their feet on the ground and possess a practical gift for understanding the material world.

The wheat that Virgo holds is also symbolic of the harvest– the time of year during which a Virgo’s birthday falls. In agrarian societies, harvest time was the busiest & most important time of the year– hence, Virgo’s hardworking tendencies.

If you are a Virgo, you express the following characteristics:
*You are neat in appearance & personal habits
*You are proficient in performing mental & maunal tasks
*You are economical
*You are practical in your aims
*You prefer serious rather than hilarious companions
*You are inclines to criticize those who are incompetent
*You rarely are rash, hasty, or careless in your decisions or actions

Hope you all enjoyed this post, be sure to check back tomorrow  for Libra. If you Virgos would like to know more about your sign be sure to check some of our other posts; Virgo Compatibility, Virgo (August 23 – Septemer 22) .

Hello everyone hope you are all having a great day. It’s cold & snowy here. I like winter but I have had enough already. Sorry, we haven’t posted in a while it’s been crazy around here. We will do our best to post as often as we can, bear with us & please keep coming back. Today, we are going to continue with the Symbolic Meaning’s of the signs… the fiery Leo is next.

Leo
The Sign of Royalty
July 23 to August 22

Planet: Sun
Element: Fire
Quality: Fixed
Day: Sunday
Season: Summer
Colors: Gold, Orange, Yellow
Plants: Marigold, Sunflower, Nasturtium
Perfume: Orange Blossom
Gemstones: Amber, Carnelian, Citrine, Topaz
Metal: Gold

Leo is the sign of the creative organizers of the zodiac. Practically no one is as good as Leos are at recognizing the solution to a problem & organizing the means to solve it. This ability gives Leo’s the reputation of being a great leader. You are more comfortable when telling others what has to be done rather than taking care of the routine details yourself. You get annoyed with yourself for this trait, but not for long because you like yourself too much. You put yourself where there is alot to be done & you associate yourself with the right group of people so that your creative input is always needed & welcome.

The symbol for Leo is the strong & proud male lion, a most appropriate symbol. Not only is a group of lions called a “pride” but anyone born under this sign has a very strong sense of pride that can not be overstated. You do not want to be connected with anyone or anything that you do nit feel was up to your high personal standards. This inclines you to provide those born under other signs with a good example.

Showing everyone how things are done is a special gift that Leos possess. That is why you have such a knack for drama — acting, the arts & music, or any form of display. Your generosity requires you to create situations & objects that will benefit & entertain yourself & those you consider worthy to be connected with you.

Leo is one of  the 4 fixed signs of astrology ( the other 3 are Taurus, Scorpio, & Aquarius). Fixed signs are stable, resolute & determined. They represent the force of holding steady. Being a fixed sign makes Leos loyal, stubborn, & proud. Leo is also a fire sign, 1 of 3 (Aries & Sagittarius are the other 2. Fire signs are primarily energetic, enthusiastic, & impulsive.

Leos are legendary for your ability to help & protect those who you acknowledge as special people. You gain your own sense of self-worth by giving what you think others need from you. However, it is important to remember that you too, need to help & protection. Don’t be too prideful to ask for help.

Here are a few characteristics of Leo:

* Your attitude is dignified but you are kind & friendly.
* You are sociable & romantic.
* You are sincere, honest, honorable, & reliable.
* You are generous & spontaneous.
* You are devoted to your family & loyal to your associates.
* You possess creative imagination & administrative aptitudes.

Hope you all enjoyed this post, be sure to check back for Virgo & also if you Leos would like to know more about your sign be sure to check some of our other posts; Leo Compatibility, Leo (July 23 – August 22) .

Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well. Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days, I’ve been sick with the flu. This is the first day I have been out of bed & able to stay up. Today we are going to discuss the symbolic meaning of Cancer.

Cancer
The Sign of Loyalty
June 21 – July 22

Planet: Moon
Element: Water
Quality: Cardinal
Day: Monday
Season: Summer
Color: Silver, Mauve, Smoke Gray
Plants Moonflower, Water Lily, Chamomile
Perfume: Sandalwood
Gemstones: Moonstone, Pearl, Geode, Hematite
Metal: Silver

Those of you born under this sign are known for your ability to nurture others. You are especially sensitive to the ways people communicate their feelings. You can easily be affected when someone you care about is feeling bad. Learning about feelings & the moods they produce are an important part of who you are. In astrology we consider the Moon to be a planet & it is associated with Cancer. The Moon’s ever changing shape & its effect on the constantly shifting tides of the ocean is like our ever changing moods.

The symbol for Cancer is the crab. Like the crab your insecurities make you want to crawl into your own version of your protective shell. The reason why you are not as secure, sensitive & nurturing as you would like to be is because we do not arrive in the world already an expert in the things that our Sun sign is known for. You have come into this world with the challenge of of the sign Cancer because you want to learn how to be more secure, sensitive & nurturing.

This fits perfectly with the fact that Cancer is one of the 3 water signs (the other 2 are Pisces & Scorpio). Those of you with water signs are sensitive, feeling types & are very imaginative & emotional. Cancer is the water sign that is concerned with protection, caring & comfort.

Cancer is one of the 4 Cardinal signs Sun signs, (the other 3 are Aries, Libra, & Capricorn). Cardinal signs are the 1st signs in each season. Fittingly so, since they are the initiators & act according to their aims & goals. Cancerians are legendary for your ability to nurture people & projects along, for you sense the needs of others on an emotional level. However it is important that you remember that your own emotional needs are just as important. You have to remember to nurture yourself as well as others. Sometimes you are so busy helping others that you forget about yourself.

You will do well to remember that you may not be as strong as the people around you may think you are, but that you certainly are strong enough to do what has to be done to make their dreams come true. You must resist withdrawing into your shell if you start to feel insecure. Your usual courage. patience, &  gentle energy are more than you will need to make your life what you will .

Here are a few characteristics for Cancer:

* You have an excellent memory.
* Your feelings are sensitive.
* You are tender, affectionate & emotional.
* You enjoy elaborate meals & sumptuous surroundings.
* You have a strong attachment to personal possessions & heirlooms.

Hope you all enjoyed this post, be sure to check back Leo & also if you would like to know more about your sign be sure to check some of our other posts on Cancer Cancer Compatibility, Cancer (June 21- July 22).

Hello everyone hope you all had a great weekend. Today, we are going to continue with the symbolic meaning posts, our next sign is Gemini.

Gemini
The Sign of Adaptability
May 21 to June 20

Planet: Mercury
Element: Air
Quality: Mutable
Day: Wednesday
Season: Summer
Colors: White, Yellow, Multicolor
Plants: Sweet Pea, Lily of the Valley, Mint
Perfume: Lavender
Gemstones: Quartz Crystal, Tiger’s Eye, Topaz, Bi-colored Tourmaline
Metal: Quicksilver

Many 1000 years ago, the ancients were right in choosing the symbol of the twins for Gemini. It’s as if there are 2 different people with 2 different values & opinions within Geminis. You are known for functioning best when you have 2 or more things to do at the same time. Those of you born under this sign are the best communicators of information, especially things that you  have heard & your opinions. Even though you speak clearly & get your point across, you are often misunderstood.

Because you are interested in everything, you can become skilled at anything that you put that lightning-quick mind to. You are known to be the most versatile of signs. It is rare that you will find a Gemini that is good at only 1 thing.  You also have great dexterity. Your desire to comprehend & communicate everything quickly produces both an endless curiosity & an ability to take every side of an issue.

Gemini is one of the 4 mutable, or changeable, signs (the other 3 are Sagittarius, Pisces & Virgo). Mutable signs are flexible & variable. You know how to adapt & adjust.  You are curious to know what life is, & you are more than just willing to adjust your beliefs when information that appeals to you comes along.

You have an abundance of intellectual energy. That’s because you are 1 of 3 astrology signs that are Air signs (the other 2 are Libra & Aquarius) These 3 signs have in common; the desire for communication, freedom of expression, thought & movement. Air is a metaphor for the invisible ideas & thoughts that motivate you.

Geminis don’t gossip, anymore than anyone else that is, you are just better at it & enjoy it more. When you tell someone something they can bet that it’s the most updated information available. You love to be kept up on the latest things, & you try your best to know something about everything. This is how the legendary stories of Gemini’s curiosity came to be. You think that if you only had the time & access to enough information, you could actually come to know everything.

Here are a few characteristics about Geminis:

*You like to be occupied with several simultaneous pursuits.
* Advising others is one of your specialties.
* You know how to combine mental & manual aptitudes.
* Frequent change of scene is important to you.
* You prefer to do practical work, rather than concentrate on abstract theories.
* Your intellect often controls your emotions.
* You try to gain prestige through being affiliated with people of prominence.

Hope you all enjoyed this post, be sure to come back tomorrow for Taurus & also if you Arians would like to know more about your sign be sure to check some of our other posts on Gemini; Spring Signs: Aries, Taurus & Gemini, Gemini Compatibility, Gemini (May 21- June 19).

Also if you would like to learn about the Legend of Gemini be sure to check out our sister site Celestial Powers.

Hello everyone, hope you are all having a good year so far. I know we are, in fact this has been a great year. First, we decided to try again w/ Celestial Powers, we have worked out our differences & believe that it was a good choice. It was a great partnership from day 1 & well you just can’t fight fate. Also as promised we have partnered up w/ another great blog. It is called Healing Magic and we feel that this is going to be another great partnership, as we have the same interests when it comes to healing & herbs. Hope you check them out. And now for today’s post. We are going to continue where we left off before the holidays, with the symbolic meanings of the rest of the zodiac signs.

One thing that I would like to add in light of the new astrological signs, first it is for anyone born after 1992, but after do extensive research I have found that many of our clients born after 1992 still fit their original signs, thats not to say that you may feel differently. But we here at Miracles n Magic are still going by the old signs. If you feel that the new signs fit you better then feel free to look that sign up as well, although we will continue to use the old dates.

Taurus
The Sign of Dependability
April 20 to May 20

Planet: Venus
Element: Earth
Quality: Fixed
Day: Friday
Season: Spring
Colors Spring Green, Blue, Pink, Pastels
Plants: Daisy, Magnolia, Honeysuckle
Perfume: Rose
Gemstones: Moss Agate, Emerald, Malachite, Rose Quartz
Metal: Copper

The symbol for Taurus is the strong & determined bull.  Those of you that are born under this sign have a lot in common with your symbol, the Bull. Although, you are usually patient & gentle, when pushed too far you can become like a bull tormented by a toreador’s red cape. Taurians are so set on their goals that, angry or not, they see little or nothing else. In fact, you sometimes think that you must be equally set on the way you will accomplish your mission. This can lead to stubbornness & an inability to change.

You seem to be able to cope with just about anything that gets in your way. Many people born under this sign of Taurus are a mystery & awe to your friends because no one expects you to have the energy necessary to put up with the situation that everyone else would walk away from. But you don’t like to walk around a situation never mind walking away from it. Meeting challenging situations requiring patience & endurance is how you prove your abilities to yourself & others.

Taurus is one of the 4 Fixed signs of the zodiac (the other 3 are Scorpio, Aquarius & Leo). Fixed signs are stubborn, stable & resolute. You have any understanding of the material world.

Taurus is also one of the 3 Earth  signs (the other 2 are Virgo & Capricorn). The Earth signs are concerned with the physical world that surrounds us — what we see, feel, hear & touch. Earth is a symbol of the environment where growth takes place, Earth signs embody the concepts of nurturing, security & protection.

You get the earthly comforts you need by exerting your immense power in a sustained & methodical manner, no matter who or what tries to make them deviate from your routine. You function best when you are able to concentrate & stick to a preconceived plan, especially when you know your reward will be pleasure & luxury. While you may not be the first to jump at a new idea, once you get started you will follow it through to the finish.

Here are a few Characteristics of Taurus:

*Before making decisions, you take time to be deliberate in thinking.
*You are proud of your endurance.
*You are devoted to your home & family.
*You like to live well.
*You prefer to depend on your own memory, which usually is infallible.
*You like wearing good apparel & costly jewelry, and enjoying first-quality food.
* You have a deep interest in music, which you like to express vocally, as an instrumentalist, or even through intense listening.

Hope you all enjoyed this post be sure to check back tomorrow for Gemini & for all you Taurians out there that want to know more about your sign be sure to check some of our other posts on Taurus; Spring Signs: Aries Taurus & Gemini, Taurus Compatibility, Taurus (April 20 — May 20).

Also if you would like to learn about the Legend of Taurus be sure to check out our sister site Celestial Powers.

Aries
The Sign of Courage
March 21 to April 19

Planet: Mars
Element: Fire
Quality: Cardinal
Day: Tuesday
Season: Spring
Colors: Red (all shades)
Plants: Red Poppy, Thistle, Ginger
Perfume: Frankincense
Gemstones: Bloodstone, Garnet, Red Jasper, Fire Opal
Metal: Iron

The symbol for Aries, is the headstrong Ram… very fitting; if you are an Aries of know of any you will know that we (Yes, yours truly is an Aries) can be VERY headstrong. In the wild, each Spring the desire to stake his territory & to mate drives the Ram to display his bravery by butting heads with his competitors. After a few times the one who can handle the headache & hasn’t given up is the winner. Those of us  born under this sign have a lot in common with there symbol, the Ram. We are willing to butt heads with anyone that we feel are standing in are way. Sometimes, we will give up if we feel that we are not getting our way quick enough, as we can be extremely impatient.

Aries is considered to be the first sign of the zodiac, Arians  as we are called are known to be aggressive & forceful because we are trying to be independent. We like to be pioneers in some way, the first to do something. We want to do things in the original way. If anyone can spontaneously  create a new way to be a pioneer, we certainly can. We don’t like to be second or to be kept waiting too long for anything.  We tend to function best when we act on or first impulse & don’t second guess ourselves. We hate lies & liars and are sometimes too honest for our own good.

Aries is one of the 4 Cardinal signs (the other 3 are Libra, Cancer & Capricorn). These signs govern the change of season, making them full of forward movement & great vitality. Cardinal signs are goal oriented, active, enthusiastic,  motivated, & ambitious. They initiate change & get things moving.

Aries is also one of the 3 Fire  signs (Leo & Sagittarius being the other 2). People with a lot of Fire in their chart are active, spontaneous, enthusiastic, creative, self-sufficient, & romantic. The forceful element of Fire can can sometimes make us Arians too proud, pushy, or bossy. We act on our first impulse, which as said before we are best at doing, without thinking & thrive when we are in charge of a project or are working alone.

Like our symbol, the Ram, we are brave explorers, headstrong pioneers who always strive to seek out new experiences. Our fiery, assertive & courageous matures are full of charm & charisma.

Here are a few Characteristics of an Aries:

*Your thoughts & actions are independent.
*You have a commanding attitude, which makes you appear proud, yet kind & friendly.
*You are straightforward in what you have to say & direct in your opinions.
*You have a strong sense of responsibility.
*You adhere to your principles & are consistently optimistic.
*You like to participate in or be a spectator of competitive pastimes. Public speaking is a parallel or alternate hobby.
*You are sincere in your aims but impatient when the are slow in fulfillment.

Hope you all enjoyed this post, be sure to come back tomorrow for Taurus & also if you Arians would like to know more about your sign be sure to check some of our other posts on Aries; Spring Signs: Aries, Taurus & Gemini, Aries Compatibility, Aries (March 21- April 19).
