From whats-your-sign.com

There’s a reason out of all the days of the week, Friday is commonly dubbed ‘date night’.  Why? Because Fridays are overseen by the angel Anael, who’s name means ‘Star of love’.  Anael is one of the angels considered to have helped with the creation of the heavens and earth.  If Anael doesn’t convince you that Fridays are for lovers, then perhaps knowing this day is ruled by Venus might give you confirmation.  Venus is symbolic of love, sensuality, creativity and relationships. Of course, love and loving isn’t exclusive to Friday. Everyday of the week is an opportunity for love.  However, Friday is most auspicious for connecting with others on a loving level.  This doesn’t mean you have to have a date, or a mate.  You can augment your intensity of love on Friday by showing affection to your pets, your family and/or your friends. You get the idea.

MANNAZ

The Self

Remain modest – that is the right of the oracle.  Be in the world, but not from the world.  Stay receptive to impulses, that come out of the divine in the inner and outer sphere.  Seek  to live the usual life in an unusual manner.

If you take the ‘itself’ rune and cut through it in the middle, you are going to receive the rune of joy and its reflection.  So there is a fine warning not to be careless. The acrobatically dancing energy of the balance is asked here to bring its higher itself.  Nothing in the excess – that was the second request that was to be read at the entrance to the delphish temple.  The first advice read:  Recognize you yourself!

Witch’s Rune

From OtherWorldlyOracle.com

Flight

Travel, birds, communication, messages from the other side, soaring at great heights, fast moving, news

The Flight Rune brings otherworldly news or reminds us of some form of communication, be it spoken or written. Birds are sacred animals and messengers to the heavens and to the gods.

Muin

M is Muin, the Vine, that magnificent plant which produces grapes… the source of wine. We all know that once we’re under its influence, wine sometimes makes us say things we otherwise would never consider. In fact, the words of one who has been consuming it are often uninhibited. The Vine is connected to prophecy and truthful speaking–because typically, people who have been partaking of its gifts are incapable of being deceptive and dishonest. Muin is a symbol of inward journeys and life lessons learned.

Muin Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Take time to think about what you say before you open your mouth, but once you open it to speak, only speak the truth. It is better to be honest than to tell people what they want to hear just to gain popularity.

Magical Aspects: Do rituals related to prophecy and divination. Be sure to record all messages that you receive–they may not make sense right now, but they will later on. When you’re sampling its pleasures, don’t allow Vine to take too much advantage of you or it may color your perceptions of what is Truth.

I Ching

Hexagram Sixteen 16

Yü / Enthusiasm

Thunder comes resounding out of the Earth:
Similar thunder roars up from the masses when the Superior Person strikes a chord in their hearts.

Whip up enthusiasm, rally your forces, and move boldly forward.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

There is a rhythmic force, a world music, that lives deep in the Unconscious of each of us.
It’s a primitive drumbeat, a shaking rattle, a tribal chant that invokes the primal self to rise up and join the dance.
This is the enthusiasm that is generated now.
Not rhetorical persuasion, not a play on the emotions, but a charismatic, irresistible Call of the Wild.
Confucius said that the person who could comprehend this could ‘rule the world as though it were spinning in his hand.’
This is a time for instinct, not intellect — the Thunder from the Beneath.

Numerology

From Numerology Double Digit Numbers

Thirty – Three

See “The Master number 33.” Capable of reaching a high level of consciousness and wisdom, its ultimate potential is in teaching teachers. It comforts others, represents self-sacrifice, and is an idealist. When not living up to its potential, it’s co-dependent, tends to bend the truth, and is arrogant.

Angel Number

From Informationseries.com – Click here for more information on Angel Number 129

An angel number is one of the spirituals. The angel will send you advice and messages through numbers such as the amount of the receipt and the license plate of the car, so you do not have to ask from here like fortune-telling. An angel tells you something important in your daily life.

Many of the messages are auspicious, and by practicing the advice, you can have a hopeful future.

So, if you often see angel number 129, what kind of message is there?
