Feng Shui Garden Tips

Spring time is here and most of us want to clean out our yards and gardens for the upcoming summer season. Here are tips to help you Feng Shui your garden and bring positive energy into your environment.

(You may use the bagua from your front door and lay it over your space to see where the areas fall within your home or you can use it at the entrance of your garden or property!)

Flowers raise an abundance of universal and cosmic energy known as chi, but one must keep the energy well balanced for positive results. Dead plants cause shar chi (negative energy) to stagnate over your yard, garden or home. Using organic compounds instead of chemicals goes without saying; we want to assist nature and not poison Mother Earth. Instead of agonizing over the dandelions that nature provides us each year, why don’t we revel in their sunny yellow faces that bring good health for you and your family.  (It also will help the declining bee population who don’t have enough to eat!)

There are several ways of approaching placement of the bagua to enhance your land. The bagua is an octagon shaped floor plan that can be used over your property to find the appropriate colors and shapes for each of the nine areas.  The most powerful way is to mentally super-impose the bagua over your entire yard. Then, you would plant the appropriate colors and shapes in each area. You can use several bagua areas throughout the property, such as for a small garden or wildflower area, or for your entire property.

You could add chi enhancing flowers in the areas that correspond with issues that are of concern to you. Use your driveway to align the bagua entering your property.

There are a variety of special flowers associated with each gua.

  1. Purple butterfly bushes attract butterflies which can enhance the Wealth area of your property. Spring time hyacinths, purple petunias, or asters could also be used. A holly bush in this area brings prosperity.
  2. Snapdragons call the etheric dragons to the Health and Family area of the bagua. Sage gives the area lots of energy. You can then dry the sage and use it for smudging, meditation or prayer sessions.
  3. Blue hydrangea and blue delphinium are great additions to the Knowledge area, as are tulips, peppermint, and spearmint.
  4. Black knight iris is a great conversation starter for a lovely spring day. Although it isn’t black, basil planted in the career area can bring fortitude.
  5. Dusty miller, fescue silver lining or silver artemisia in shades of gray can fortify the Helpful People gua.
  6. White peonies or chrysanthemums, two Chinese favorites, are great additions to plant in the Children and Creativity area. Don’t forget the daisy as these cheery little flowers can brighten anyone’s day.
  7. The pink rose will bless the Love and Marriage gua, but don’t overdo it! More than three bushes on an average size property can cause relationships to become too thorny. Balance this area, as well as the others, with different sized and shaped plants by adding pink dianthus or geranium.
  8. There are many varieties of red flowers available for the Fame and Reputation area. Pick a flower that you feel is beautiful and that resonates with your energy. The Firecracker is a pretty and hearty plant.
  9. The center of the bagua is the earth and health area which is represented by yellows and earth tones. Marigolds are not looked upon favorably from a Feng Shui perspective, so choose another flower. Lemon verbena can be recycled into potpourri when dried. Who can resist the simple beauty of a golden pansy?

When planting, it is important to declare your intentions as to what you would like these flowers to bring into your life. Thank the Earth Gods, the fairies, the angels, Spirit or whomever you believe in, for their part in the upcoming beauty, and add the whimsy of a windsock, whirl-i-gig or chime to get the chi moving to attract more positive opportunities. In a few short weeks, you will enjoy the majesty of butterflies, fireflies, bees and other wildlife which also enhances the flow of positive chi.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Decide in which direction you want your life to go and start working towards it a little each day.  Things that aren’t working in your life are getting you frustrated, so just let them go and deal with them as best you can.  Yes, you have a million excuses why you can’t, but if you look at the big picture, it will show you that happiness and contentment lie ahead of you if you make the proper adjustments and changes in your life now!  Travel could be fun, so plan a getaway.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

There seems to be many aggravations, miscommunications and concerns around you, especially at work.  If you feel things in your career are not going well for you, perhaps a meeting with an employer would be appropriate.  Find out what you are doing right and wrong and fix what you can.  Changes may be coming in the work environment, so as long as you do what you can to make life easier for all involved at the workplace, you will be fine.  Be adamant about your desires and goals. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

There are so many wonderful opportunities coming for you.  Embracing these changes will make your life more blissful and satisfied.  Join groups of like-minded people so you can either learn new things or mentor others.  Your expertise is needed.  Gems are too scattered to focus on what is important now, so prioritize and organize your life. Think of what you want to accomplish and don’t stop until you have reached your goal(s).  A bit more fun in your life would be a wonderful thing.

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

You have much to think over.  Additional education may be helpful to get you going in the right direction.  Traveling is also a possibility since you are getting antsy and want to explore new places and meet new people after the winter months.  You may want to try to do many things you never tried in the past, so get out and do something fun and relaxing.  Take up new hobbies or crafts that will bring you pleasure.  Don’t let negative thinking keep you from accomplishing your dreams.

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

You have much more energy and are dynamic now.  Go out and conquer the world.  You may have started taking various classes of interest or are thinking about it.  You need excitement, new things, to learn and to find your own space now rather than helping everyone else.  This is an excellent time for you to take care of yourself.  If you don’t do it, who else will?  You will be nurtured by being more grounded, secure, stable and focused. 

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

You are trying to get things in order, fix your finances and try to budget more than ever before to get that perfect purchase – a car, vacation, home, etc., and you will succeed as your perseverance is strong and you are determined to get what you want.  You will be tested again and pushed on many interesting paths.  Don’t give up.  Saturn always teaches you a lesson that benefits you in later life, so be strong, learn the lesson and use the gained knowledge to help with future decisions and goals.

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

Communicating your wishes and desires with those you love is an important step to getting what you want now.  Home life will calm down and things will run more smoothly, but there seems to be so many projects and chores that need to be completed that you may tend to be a bit frazzled.  Love life improves if you stand up for yourself as much as you stand up for others.  Partnerships seem positive although there will always be some romantic fantasy or illusion around you.  See reality of each situation. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

Home life takes center stage as you get things done.  Make a list and stick with it a little each day and your responsibilities will fade so that you will have much more time for fun with family and friends.  Don’t let obligations keep you from relaxing – it’s time to get back into those hobbies that may have gone by the wayside over the winter.  Taking care of your yard and home projects is very important, so ask your family to help out with other smaller chores so that you are all working together and getting things done quickly. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

You are very playful and mischievous. You have decided that you want to get back to doing the things that make you happy whether it’s your hobbies, interests, or reuniting with old friends and family that have not been in your life for some time.  You are also very interested in games, fun, challenges and getting out and doing something more than handling your responsibilities.  Your emotions are very strong, so be sure that you stay calm when dealing with a partner. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

What a great time to finally start getting back into the swing of things with your diet and exercise regime.  Take a walk around the neighborhood, walk your dog (if you have one), eat more healthily and everything else will fall into place.  Any negativity will be a thing of the past.  You will have more energy and an interest in accomplishing many things now.  You are getting rid of the old and inviting the new into your life.  What an exciting time.

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Love life will give you a run for your money, so see through all the fantasy and deal with reality.  Many issues at work may be unsettling, so if you can ask someone in authority about your concerns, do it to help relieve your mind.  You may feel like doing many new things, but you are in a procrastination mode as well, so balance in all things is advised. Take on smaller tasks so that you feel as if you are accomplishing more and will be motivated to stay on track. 

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Dealing with financial issues, especially spending money (and your partner’s) is a big issue.  Prioritizing house and personal projects is important.  This is a positive time to figure out where you want to go for vacation or if you wish to take a day or weekend getaways instead.  You may also want to go to school, for additional training or certification courses.  Things may be blown out of proportion, so don’t get into arguments with those you love – try to see the whole picture and see things from their perspective as well.

CHOICES by Vikki Anderson

Making choices and decisions are what our

time upon this Earth is all about.

What school or profession we nurture.

To get married or not.

To have or not have children…

Our choices in life are what

our time on this Earth will reveal

to you in your next life:

Were we wise?

Did we have good judgment?

Did we bring happiness and love to others?

Were we caring enough to forego

our own needs for that of a loved one

or stranger?

Choices make us who we are today…

Who we were several hundred years ago

and what we will become centuries from now.

Choose your choices well

For you will live with them

For all eternity…for better or worse.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Many decisions have to be made about your career and if you want to remain in the same company where you now work.  There may be budget issues, but once you figure out your expenses, you’ll see you can handle your bills just fine. You seem to know your job inside and out; however, it would be especially good for you to learn new things.  Arians may also feel as if they need a new hairdo, haircut, change of wardrobe and makeup.  Looking for a makeover or updated style may be just what the doctor ordered.  Any changes that you do make are going to be positive and bring you a lot of self-confidence and keep you from getting depressed or down in the dumps.  Enjoy spring and the great weather; notice all the wonderful flowers blooming around you.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

It seems that there are many karmic lessons to be learned within friendships and associations. Join a few clubs or groups that have a common interest, volunteer at a local animal shelter or any other type of group that you have felt an attachment to, and most importantly, make clear boundaries.  Your good nature makes you an easy target for so many people who are the takers in this world and it depends on which mood you are in to see whether or not you will stand up for yourself.  Your compassion and empathy make you an easy target for those who want your advice, time, opinions, to borrow money, etc.  Don’t be afraid to say no or in your case, just say, “I would like to (whatever), but…” and come up with a reason of the day.  You are on way out.  You’re very busy and will call when you aren’t so busy; you don’t feel well.  

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

You need to reexamine what you really want out of life and get back to your roots.  Are you practicing voluntary simplicity?  That means you are getting rid of everything you don’t like, want or need in this stage of your life so that you have more time to accomplish the important things that you have always wanted to do.  Take that trip that you have been saving for or buy a new car if yours is on its way out.  Every time you make a major change in your life, your life changes just as dramatically.  Take a class you’ve been procrastinating on or go to the local library and attend every lecture and program they present.  You are a little sponge for education and information now, so avail yourself to many of the free programs in your neighborhood or those in surrounding communities.  Spend more time with friends while learning how to crochet or knit or draw.  Learn from your friends and they in turn will ask you to teach them something you know how to do. Be sure to pay attention to your health.  If you need a checkup or haven’t gone in a long while, this is the time to catch up on your doctor visits.  

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

There is much good luck around you and will help you deal with any unfinished business with the best results possible.  Concentrate on what you want so that things fall into place easier.  Also, at this time, be very careful about what you eat and drink.  You feel as if everything you eat is going to your hips or elsewhere and it may be true.  There can be drastic change and Cancerians are not that good with change, so be prepared for some areas of life will be different than before.  You will have total control over your life if you are not too emotional and overly sensitive.  Not everything is about you although it feels that way sometimes.  On a happier note, work seems to be going in a good direction or you have decided to change your job and find something that makes you smile while you learn something new.  Be patient with others now since there tends to be some annoyance if people take things too literally or if they do not do what they said they would.

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

Stop worrying about your finances and concentrate on other more important issues.  Dealing with friends may be an interesting turn of events.  Be considerate of what others have to say as they may be very sensitive now and will take everything as a personal attack.  Home life looks encouraging as there is much activity in the home and with your family that everything seems to be running smoothly.  Activity and communication are the keys for everyone to get along nicely.  Suggest games, chores, or family time to your loved ones so that you can all spend more time together.  Children especially want to be heard.  Paying close attention to your children now will help them feel needed and important.  Work seems to be going in a good direction although there may be lots of changes.  Change seems good at this time, so just go with the flow to see where life takes you.

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Be the mediator between those who are not getting along and don’t take sides.  You will probably regret that a little later down the road. This is a great time to renew certain areas of your life or get things moving in another direction.  There is so much you want to do, but haven’t gotten around to making your dreams happen. Prioritize your time and then, organize what you need to make your project or dream come true. There may be some conflict over education or philosophies of life and perhaps travel.  If you want to take a long- distance trip, there may be someone or something that keeps you from traveling.  If you stand up for yourself, you can go on whichever trip you wish.  Even though people may be intimidated by you or you by them, just concentrate on the goal and move forward.  

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

To minimize the change, start redecorating or painting for the new season to get that uplifting and positive energy into your home.  Think about your financial situation and then decide how far you would like to go with your home projects.  Health issues may come to light.  If something was unclear about a condition or symptom, it seems that now you will understand what has been going on.  Also, attracting romantic partners is interesting and adventurous.  Be certain which type of person you would like to meet since it seems as if the universe is sending you many different types and letting you choose which one you feel is best for you.  Choose wisely.  You may feel somewhat stuck by some of the decisions you have to make and yet, once you make them, you feel wonderful.  

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

Then there are those who want to see what else is out there.  The third is looking to mend fences and get back to those happy times you used to have.  It may feel as if you are living under a cloud lately, but things will pick up soon.  Make informed decisions and be sure you are making important decisions with your common sense and not your emotions.  If you use emotions, those decisions will be wrong.  You may be overly emotional, sensitive and upset for no reason now or at the very least, a very minute reason.  It’s a time where you have to figure out what to do with your finances for the future and how to balance your partner’s and your money so that you could live comfortably for many years to come.  It’s a time where you should buy what you need and not what you want, so that you have cash in reserve.  This may be a good time to get away or at the very least make travel plans for your vacation.  Choose somewhere that is nature oriented and very quiet.  

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

You try to say that everything is okay, but you are not the same person you were a year ago.  More things bother you and those around you seem to notice.  What a great time to start a new healthy eating habit as well as some new exercise routines.  Walking around the neighborhood with your dog or friendly neighbor will help your blood pressure return to normal and will make you calmer and more grounded.  Try not to over think things too much since you really aren’t relaxing by trying to figure out the same things over and over again in your head.  Spirituality, religion or metaphysics are all possibilities of areas that can help you feel like part of the human race.  You are connected, but sometimes you don’t feel as if that is true. Friendships need to be nourished and a good way to do that is to spend some time with your closest friends and visit family more often.  They miss you and would like to connect with you.  Be open to going out to the movies, to dinner or anywhere your friends would like to go.  Have fun. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Talking to those who are making you concerned or sad will help you uncover what he or she was hiding from you.  This is a time for dramatic changes, for the rug to be pulled out from a few of you and for you to get your life in order.  Start following what you want to be doing rather than what others expect you to follow.  This is your time to make the life you’ve always wanted for yourself.  It may seem like a manic/depressive type of month since you seem to be happy and then for no reason, you turn around and are sad or miserable.  You are not quite sure why, but it will be like this roller coaster for a short while until you get a handle on what’s happening around you.  It’s not you.  Thinking with a clear head and as much logic and intelligence that you can muster, you will understand that all things have to change and some people have to be left behind if they are not supposed to follow you into the future.  

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Even though you are not destitute, you are being very cautious with your money as you want it to last a very long time.  Remember to buy what you need. You are doing well at work and may even get a raise or promotion soon.  Someone is noticing your abilities at work and will recommend you for these changes.  You are doing too much work for the salary you are receiving and are always exhausted from all the responsibility and long days.  In your personal life, it looks like there may be someone special in your life (or coming shortly), and you will fall head over heels in love with this person.  Be careful not to rush things along and make sure you find out everything you need to know about this romantic significant other as you tend to be a bit vulnerable now.  Your mind is also segmented now and you seem to be worrying about too many things and what could go wrong. 

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Make the conscious effort to educate yourself until you feel better about yourself and your knowledge.  If you start to make plans to travel abroad, you will be meeting many new people in foreign countries who will most likely be your good friends for a long time to come.  It would be a great idea to volunteer to have a foreign exchange student as well, if you have the time and means to do it.  You are very sensitive; however, now it seems as if you are holding your own and taking care of business.  You are smarter, stronger, and more confident and feel as if you can accomplish anything that is put before you.  Luck is also on your side this month, so you want to start or finish as many projects as you can so that the luck will be there with you throughout the process.  Many of your opinions and thoughts change and you tend to be more serious about the things you believe in.  You study many more subjects and you want to learn everything you can about so many things.  If you have a favorite topic or hobby that you would like to learn more about, this is the time to do it!

March Horoscopes 2018

Important Dates:  March 8, International Women’s Day; March 11, Daylight Saving Time begins; March 17, St. Patrick’s Day; March 20, Vernal Equinox; March 25, Palm Sunday; March 30, Good Friday; and March 31, Passover.

Which Element Colors Your Child?

Your child falls into one of these four groups: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Depending upon which element your child’s sun sign is in will determine the attributes and opportunities that will be available in your child’s life. Other children of the same element would be your child’s best match for a friend during these tender years. In general, Fire and Air are also very compatible with each other, as is Earth with Water. For educators and teachers, I have been keeping record of many teachers who have taken my advice and placed same element children in groups for school work or at play time. They excel and accomplish things easily and effortlessly because they are of like mind and have the same energy to follow through with a particular task or project. There is also less confusion, stress, arguments or hurt feelings because all are working from their particular element’s strengths to get the job done well.

FIRE SIGNS (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are leaders, take control of situations and need to feel important. They tend to lose interest in goals and dreams as soon as they are bored with them, so it is important to keep a wide variety of activities, hobbies and toys at their disposal. These children would do best being enrolled in any of the sports or activities in which they show an interest; however, be clear that whichever they sign up for must be completed.

EARTH SIGNS (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) like to do detailed work and never like to be in the spotlight. They can sometimes be very temperamental and stubborn; however, this stems from their lack of self-esteem and need for compliments and consistency. Earth signs would do very well being exposed to Rubik’s Cube and other brain expanding activities. They love to figure things out.

AIR SIGNS (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) need lots of books, TV, computers and phones since they are the communication signs and need to be interacting with people all of the time. They also need their own play time and space. They are very intellectual and logical in an out of the box sort of way. Their ideas are original and should be given serious consideration and thought.

WATER SIGNS (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are the artistic signs which need to express themselves artistically through writing, painting, singing and dancing, etc. They are extremely sensitive and emotional and need structure to be able to pursue their dreams. They are the most compassionate, empathetic and emotional of all the signs and should be handled delicately and lovingly.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Your interest in getting out of the house and doing something exciting after being thwarted by the winter becomes a priority.  There also seems to be many frustrations and limitations in home life that you wish to handle and change.  Relationships are going in a different direction.  You want to find people who can reciprocate your generosity and want to start receiving instead of always being the giver.  Many karmic lessons may be learned; once you realize that the only thing constant in life is change – you will be in a different mindset to attract new opportunities and embrace the fun.

TAURUS – ’April 18 – May 19

Your career seems to be doing very well with all of the changes going on around you.  Keep planning for your future.  Dealing with many issues now keeps your mind racing in many directions.  You need to slow down, make a list and follow it.  You are too scattered so organize your time so you can think through carefully.  Money seems to be an issue so careful budgeting makes sense now as it seems there will be unusual or unexpected expenses in the weeks ahead.

GEMINI – “ May 20 – June 20

This should be a very spiritual cycle for all Gems who have been having a difficult time in many areas.  The eclipses have not been as positive as you would have liked so this is more of a time for planning, organizing, foundation work, changes in thinking processes and attracting new, positive energy.  This is a time to study metaphysics and parapsychology as well as take new classes of your choice.  Creativity is your way out of this crazy time.  Do artwork or photography.  Get out and be creative and flexible and by doing that, you will start to change the vibrations around you to a more positive and loving nature.

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

This is a good time for Cancerians to make some positive moves whether it is in business or school.  What a great time for many opportunities to be presented to you and the good news is, no matter which opportunity you grab, it will be the right one for you.  Adversely, if you don’t grab onto opportunities, they will pass you by and never return. Be prepared for partnership issues if your stubborn side rears its ugly head.  You are too kind to let others be harmed in any way, but shield yourself from being emotionally drained.  Love issues may be tricky now so just be a good listener and think about your responses before you answer.

LEO – July 22 – August 22

Balance your checkbook!  This is a great time to buy what you need and not what you want.  You may also want to sell things that are no longer needed on eBay or Craigslist, etc. to get some of the money you need to pay off debt or buy what you currently need.  Health improves as you take care of any medical issues with doctor visits and a better diet and exercise program.  People are interfering with your goals so some slight agitations occur.  Take a yoga class, go to a spa, relax and chill out a little.  As usual, you take things much too seriously and you need to just “let it go.”  In the scheme of things, is anything that important if it makes you unwell?

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

Home life can be challenging sometimes.  There is a lot going on in your life and you really need to be more determined and adamant than usual to get things done the way you want them done.  You need to follow your lists (and not just make them).  Once you handle things in this extremely detailed and focused way, things will be much easier.  Children and home life may not help you get what you need out of life at the moment, but there is a lot of good intention.  You are needed and loved, so if you can’t do everything that you want to do at this time, give it a longer time frame for your dreams and goals to come to fruition.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

There are so many obstacles, concerns, issues, limitations and responsibilities that you need to handle and you feel as if you may never get from under all of these obligations in one piece.  The good news is “you will!”  You may feel somewhat depressed from time to time until you adjust to the fact that this is a transitory feeling.  It will be gone before you know it, so just concentrate on your goals and more forward.  You can be super sensitive now and feel as if no one understands you. Partnerships can be overwhelming, but you can listen to your partner’s concerns and try to be more patient and all will be fine.

SCORPIO – ˜October 23 – November 21

Love life is interesting now and things seem to be changing in a very positive direction.  You can get closer to the one you love and your whole relationship can go to a new level, if you want it to.  Children can be involved in helping you make a good life for yourself so give them a chance to see what they have in store for you.  Your ambition and drive make you a formidable challenge this month.  You know what you want and you are trying to go after it.  Career is stable so whatever you do for a living will continue to bring in a salary and keep your finances balanced as long as you don’t go overboard on impulse buying.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Taking care of your health is very important this month. Health needs to improve; your vitality is down and it may just be that you are trying to accomplish too much and not giving yourself enough rest and time to unwind.  If you are concerned about a health issue, go to your healthcare professional for a checkup.  You may be anxious about career issues so just try to do your job and be a bit more flexible when it comes to your work.  There may be some changes in your workload, so be prepared for it by resting and eating properly.  Exercise and a healthy meal plan would be extremely helpful to you now.  Try it.

CAPRICORN –  December 21 – January 18

Even though life seems very dramatic, things will calm down.  No one needs more drama in their lives so it may be time that you release the people who are always draining you and wanting you to help them out without giving you any reciprocal energy in return.  You must be strong and learn how to say no.  Examples may be by telling them that tonight you are busy, you are on your way out to dinner, you are entertaining friends/family at your home and just ask if you may you call them next week, etc. Even though Pluto is bringing you a tad of drama and trauma into your life, you will be triumphant in moving forward in the way you want to go.  If changes come to your workplace, do not fear new opportunities.  Welcome them.  Love life is also a mystery.

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

Travel plans may be coming together for later in the year.  You want to get out of your everyday routine and see exotic places or at the very least, just get away from your current surroundings for a weekend or a few days. This is also a good time to add creativity with the hope of relaxing to your otherwise very crazy life.  There will be lots of time for creating works of art, writing down important events in your life and even figuring out what the future has in store for you. There is a new road ahead of you filled with wonder, new beginnings and wonderful possibilities.  You will succeed in all that you do this month, if you actually get out and do it.

PISCES – œ February 18 – March 19

New romance is a possibility as well as continued good luck blessing you. Others find you sexually attractive now so try date more. You feel that you are more attractive and in shape and want to continue with improving yourself on so many levels, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically. If you are holding onto a job or relationship just because “it is comfortable,” it is time for you to make a change.  Stop living in a comfortable life and take a chance to see how life can help you.  Let things go that no longer serve or help you in any way.  New beginnings are coming.

December Horoscopes 2017

Important Dates:  December 3, Advent Begins; the 7th, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day; 13th, Hanukkah and the Geminids Meteor Showers; 21st Winter Solstice and Sun moves into Capricorn; 22nd Ursids Meteor Showers, 25th, Christmas Day; and the 26th, Kwanzaa.

Happy Hanukkah, Yule and Christmas to All!

There is not one universal holiday greeting for this time of the year.  There is Hanukkah, Yule and Christmas.  These three versions of this sacred holiday which tends to be different; however, all seem to center on sharing time with family and exchanging gifts to signify the love that we share among our families and close friendships.

What do you say during the holidays if you don’t know what proper phrase to use?  Do you still say Merry Christmas even if you don’t know if someone is Jewish?  I don’t think it really matters.  I was saddened when Merry Christmas became a thing of the past and Happy Holidays had caught on.  Yes, I respect other religions and their celebrations, but my holiday is Christmas, so why can’t I just say it?

There is the religious side to these holidays and going to a ceremony, church or temple and then there is the metaphysical side of the same holidays.  All are small pieces of the puzzle that makes our beliefs who we are and collectively, they form the beliefs of the human race.  Religion thinks on a larger scale.  It talks about our God, our Lord, the Universe, Jesus and the sacrifice Jesus made for all of us. Metaphysics is more about the overall spirituality of the season and what it represents throughout our lives, how it reflects on our loved ones that we have lost and deals with individual practitioners, family or local metaphysical groups with your same beliefs or perhaps esoteric churches where the dogma is not as stringent as in other religious institutions. Yule is called Yule or Yuletide (“Yule time”) is a festival observed by the historical Germanic people.  When it was Christianized after a few adaptations, it then turned into Christmastide. It then became a celebration of the Winter’s Solstice, December 21 with festive activities, feasting and fun.  They celebrated the nature aspects of the time.  Many celebrate in their own way with their own traditions and cultural based beliefs.

Whatever your belief system is, enjoy the holidays.  I don’t think it matters what you say to others during this festive time, but make the intent clear! Call up friends and family that haven’t been in your life for a while and assure them you want them in your lives.  Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Yule would be a nice way of breaking the ice, staying true to your beliefs and getting back in touch with those people who mean the world to you!

Happy 2018!!

Retrogrades Mercury, Dec. 3-21.  Uranus all month.
The sun will go into Capricorn on December 21.

 

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Career opportunities are plentiful and you are probably considering changing jobs or parts of your job that will bring you more attention, more income or where you will truly feel appreciated.  You will have fun, enjoy the celebrations and won’t think twice about spending more money than planned.  Keep to some type of budget.  Your attention is not on work at this time, but in planning all the wonderful shopping, parties, travel and fun you hope to have during this month.  Your practical side comes into play where you realize you need more rest and must limit the drain on your energy.  All in all, you are active, busy and having fun.  You are connecting with friends and family who love your company.

’TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

If you find yourself in unexpected circumstances, just know that you are being guided on a different path.  You may not wish to travel on this path; however, it would be in your best interest to at least look at the wonderful changes around you and the opportunities it will bring to you for future happiness, prosperity and good health.  Holiday travel seems important; family conflicts may arise but seem unimportant to you.  If you compromise, when appropriate, things should run quite smoothly. Don’t get into a battle of wits with your family and friends since this is the season of forgiveness. Change is good even though you may not feel it at the present time. 

“GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Home life tends to get less stressful as you try to plan the perfect holiday party.  Even though your life needs balance; you already know this and are trying to make positive adjustments.  However, you seem to have lots of friends and family members who are willing to volunteer their time to help. You may get annoyed when people question where your time is spent and that you may be able to organize your life better.  You do more than most of the other signs and would like to be acknowledged for that, but just be happy that you are able to run your life the way you want to.  You will have fun being invited to many get-togethers or at the very least, exchanging gifts with treasured friends and family. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21
New beginnings in the home with redecorating or much needed repairs, help you focus on your goals.  You may be starting over or feel as if you need some positive changes quickly.  Differences of traditions and philosophies of life will be tested and you may be persuaded to look at other perspectives.  Even though you may want to stay home this holiday season, be adaptable if your partner wants to travel to visit family.  Staying home means you have to cook and entertain; however, it also makes you feel comfortable to be within your own home to do whatever you want to.  Using your intellect to make logical decisions rather than emotional ones will help you choose the better option.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

This is a good time to rejuvenate, relax and do whatever you feel is important for yourself.  As usual, you will go the extra mile for anyone in need.  This is also a time when you will take on the responsibility of a family issue.  Do the best you can to help those family members compromise; however, don’t beat yourself up if it does not go the way you feel it should.  You have done your best and sometimes things just have to work themselves out.  Arguing is probable if you let yourself get caught up in the politics of an issue.  Be aware of the explosive energy surrounding you and do your best to diffuse all negative situations.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

Holidays are needlessly stressful, so if you can relax and plan well in advance, your holiday celebrations will run quite smoothly.  Getting your list and checking it twice is a great way for a Virgo to start their holiday shopping.  Situations with personal and business partnerships may be confusing and upsetting at times, so be prepared to stand your ground and give your candid opinion in a tactful manner.  Career may be changing in many ways and it would be helpful for you to know in which direction you would like to proceed.  The energy around you is positive and open to so many wonderful possibilities to accomplish your future goals and dreams.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

You may wish to reconsider some of the more expensive gifts you have purchased and try to cut down a little bit on the grandeur of the season.  Consulting with a partner on financial choices or where you spend the family riches will allow you to spend more freely when you really need to buy things you need.  Much good energy is around you so plan what steps you would like to take to accomplish some dreams and goals.  Your personality shifts to being more self confident with less issues regarding insecurities and anxieties.  Career, travel and spiritual pursuits all seem to become important at the same time so be prepared to be scattered and yet, you will be having the time of your life exploring all the possibilities around you.  

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

Be prepared to double check your travel plans as it seems as if there may be a small glitch that hinders you.   This does not mean that you should not travel, but it seems to be a time where extra planning and Plan B will keep everyone calm and in control of their holidays!  You just need a relaxation time where you can unwind; additionally, family time is suggested for your own enjoyment and well being.  You would like to plan things in advance and that’s a wonderful idea, but be flexible enough to know that all plans do not turn out exactly as we hope.  Many times, unexpected changes can be more fun than our original plans.  Have an adventurous time!

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Get up and go to holiday parties, friends’ get-togethers or that holiday getaway with a loved one even though he or she may not want to leave home.  Try to be a little more sensitive to a loved one’s feelings as it seems you may be somewhat tactless or thoughtless to his or her needs.  This may be because you are so caught up in the whirlwind around you, that you don’t have time for petty nonsense.  You may be on different wavelengths so try to find common ground.  Home life may be a bit too hectic for your taste and you may try to go out or not deal with specific issues.  They will not go away, so deal with them directly.  A good outcome at work will result from any effort you put into making positive changes with your workload or that of your co-workers.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

New friends and associations help propel your career through this holiday season.  Networking becomes effortless as you meet many more people through new clubs, memberships and organizations.  Be careful not to let your personal and business lives conflict with each other as it won’t be worth the time and trouble.  Deal with each area of life separately and complete any unfinished projects or endeavors.  Being organized for the upcoming year will help you get a jump on your goals.  Go out and have some fun.  Accept holiday party invitations and do some of the entertaining yourself.  You will feel very relaxed and others will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

Your creative and artistic abilities are intensified during this festive season so don’t be afraid to show off your abilities to all. You may wish to kick back and unwind during the holidays and not have the traditional holiday meals or parties with your family.  You may wish to keep a day for yourself where you could organize your home, entertain other family members or friends or just relax and watch the blinking lights on the Christmas tree or other holiday decorations.  Energy abounds and you wish to accomplish more.  You have done enough!  Limit yourself to a few tasks per day so you can re-energize and continue on the fast track that you have been living on for the last year.    

œPISCES – February 18 – March 19

You will be given alternatives to your original ideas.  Do not dismiss them or give up the opportunities that these changes are suggesting.  They may be much better than your original plans.  If circumstances seem confusing or dramatic, this is the best time to take that energy and turn it into a positive result.  The negativity around you is disappearing and you need to reinforce the positive energy that you know is protecting and guiding you to do the right thing.  Love issues may be a tender spot, so understand what the issue is and then do something to resolve it.  Using your mental agility will help you to optimistically deal with any concerns that come your way.  Career issues may be pushed to the foreground and some very important decisions about your future will need to be made. If you need to make adjustments to goals, now is the time to make them.

November Horoscopes 2017

Important dates: November 1, All Saints Day; 7th, Election Day; and the 23rd, Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day is one of the most traveled holidays of the year and it is any wonder that it is? This day signifies being with family and friends whom you love and want a relationship with even though you may be separated by distance throughout the year, whether for college reasons, a new career or a spouses job change, we all try to come together during the holidays to be with the people we love.

Being through personal difficulties since December 28th when my father passed from pneumonia, then my brother unexpectedly died of a stroke while I was having hip surgery in January, a very good friend passed on St. Patrick’s Day and a woman (my first astrology teacher, Freda Flood who had been like a second mom to me for 48 years), died on Memorial Day, I now fully understand what Thanksgiving is all about. Its about being surrounded by those who make you who you are. Its being around the people who have always supported you when perhaps no one else did, or those who were always there no matter what the circumstances. Its about people loving you for you and not for your accomplishments, your status or how much money you had in the bank. It is about unconditional love between the two of you that no external force could change.

I encourage you to be with your relatives and friends during this holiday season and be grateful for them, even if you think theyre strange or odd! Embrace them. Because once theyre gone, you will no longer have their wisdom, knowledge, love, compassion and friendship to guide you through the rest of your life. I miss my family and friends a great deal, but they will always live on in my heart. My sincere wish for you is to have all those people whom you love with you on Thanksgiving Day and for the rest of the holidays. Show them your love; its important.

ARIES – March 20 April 18

Get ready for many family discussions about the holidays and other matters that keep you on your toes. You thought a lot of this madness was behind you; however, you have a little bit more to go. Deal with issues as they happen and dont respond as you always do react instead. The calmer you remain, the calmer the situation will be. This is a great time to get things settled with siblings and family members in general. If having the holidays at your home, be prepared ahead of time and dont let others tell you what you should have or who you should invite. It is time to set some boundaries. Finances may be too confusing now to make a final decision on what needs to be done, but start the process going.


TAURUS – April 19 May 19

You are surprised, but family life seems to improve. You are getting your way about holiday plans and are deciding whether or not to have the Thanksgiving dinner at your home. If not practical, you may be deciding what you need to make for the occasion and take it to another family members home. For a holiday season, you tend to be a bit under the weather or somewhat depressed. Maybe its the holidays, but it seems as if you need to get things decided in your life and you may even have to move on with or dismiss plans that you have already made. Career gets crazy and you feel as if you are overburdened with stress and continuous questions from people who could not possibly know what you are going through.

GEMINI – May 20 June 20

Love issues may be stirring and you may have to make some difficult decisions about your romantic future. Being too sensitive now will not help you decide what you need to do to be happy. Handle your concerns with intellect and logic and you will make perfect decisions. Your creativity and artistic abilities are proven over and over again. You get into so many different areas of expertise that you sometimes even amaze yourself. Asking what you could make or bring to a family gathering will be very much appreciated, but if you are too busy, stopping at a gourmet bakery or fruit shop will keep you in good graces. Its the thought that counts.

CANCER – June 21 July 21

Even though you may be invited out or having a special get together at your home for the holidays, make sure you have plenty of alone time to spend with the one you love. You may need some special time together to get over any disagreements or things that have not been settled. Partnerships are going well. Different viewpoints need to be considered and a compromise that will benefit both of you would be best. Career is going well and there may even be some interesting changes that you will be quite surprised with. This is a good time to stand up for yourself and let others know that you now have boundaries which they may not cross.

LEO – July 22 August 21

Be efficient, effective, and organized this month. People are depending upon you. Money issues can be dealt with properly and easily if you just realize that some habits may have to change. You can be the most delightful host/hostess when you want to be, so put on that smile, make the best dinner you could possibly make and if there are any negative people at your gathering, ignore them for the sake of the holiday. There’s always one to bring everyone else down, but it is not going to happen to you this year. You are prepared, you feel energized and ready for anything. Keep the peace within the family and especially keep an eye on your partner.

VIRGO – August 22 September 21

Many new positive changes will affect you and your partner. Money issues may really start to annoy the both of you as it is being spent without thinking what your partner would say. Some compromise and good conversation are all that is needed to deflate the possible explosion of emotion. If money is tight during the holidays, you can always ask family and friends to bring a side dish or dessert (as well as their favorite drink) to your holiday dinner. Many people do this, so join the club so you do not have to get stressed out. Your creativity and innovative ideas will help get you that promotion or more responsibility for more money that you’ve been dreaming of.

LIBRA September 22 October 22

You seem to be very sensitive and overly emotional now. Nothing is as bad as all that and you know you can handle life if you take care of things one thing at a time or one day at a time. Handle the responsibilities and obligations you were meant to. The holidays should actually make you feel more confident about your life; getting into the spirit with decorations and gift giving will be an absolute joy for you. Partnerships confuse you and you just need to be more self confident and gather up your inner strength and courage to make important decisions. Do not procrastinate too long on important decisions because some of the opportunities will pass you by. Traveling for the holidays is a possibility if you can find the money and decide on where you would like to go.

SCORPIO – October 23 November 20

There is much intense energy going on in your life especially in career. Good opportunities are on their way and there may even be a raise or promotion in the near future. If having any festivities at your home, be sure to do a little each day so that you are not overwhelmed at home. You need to clean the house one day, prepare food on the next day and then cook everything on the third. You will be so organized that you will amaze others with your organizational skills. In this way, you may also join your guests because everything will be ready ahead of time. There seems to be an abundance of good luck and interesting decisions that will lead you into new beginnings and new ventures. Be open to change.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 December 20

Think of inviting friends to your home that may not have anywhere to go during the holidays. Even if you are fortunate enough to have family and friends around you, not everyone does, so count your blessings. Friendships will be very important now, so be prepared to know who is or is not your friend. When new people come into your life that seems as if they want to be your new best friend, be very careful about telling them many secrets. Deception, secrets and talking behind your back (gossip from jealousy or envy) is very probable. Stand up for yourself and dont pretend you dont know it exists. If you dont stand up for yourself, it just gets worse. Saving more can help you long term. Just buy what you need and not what you want at this time.

CAPRICORN – December 21 January 18

There seems to be a total change in the way you perceive things; you also want to change what you are not happy with. Your personal style, wardrobe and perhaps even holiday decorations or traditions are all equally on the chopping block. Caps want to looker younger, thinner, and healthier and so you start many new regiments of a healthier you from exercising to eating better. You are also trying to be calmer and may even want to study meditation or learn how to contact your angels for whatever blessings you need in your life. As far as the holidays, it depends on what you want to do now. It seems like a small intimate dinner for Thanksgiving is on the agenda. You are getting tired of too many people around you, especially those who are always needy and asking you for favors.

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

You are so good with money and you are doing even more in budgeting what you have and trying to get the most of your funds. The holidays are going to be a bit more frugal this year (as with most people), but you are going to shop at sales, auctions, flea markets and thrift stores and will do very well. If having the Thanksgiving holiday at your home, be decisive and ask others to bring the things you will need to make your generosity go a little bit further. A bottle of liquor or appetizers are always a nice way for others to participate in the holiday. Do you want to start your own home-based business? Many decisions need to be made so you can move forward without any interruption in your routine. You need to leave the stress behind.

PISCES February 18 March 19

Your finances seem to be going in a much better direction if you dont do something ridiculous like gamble or play the lottery. Keep extra funds in a bank so you can save to have whatever it is you need. This is not the time to buy anything that you want now and you can get those items by just putting them on your Christmas list. If Thanksgiving is at your home, why not make it fun by having an early afternoon buffet lunch and then having finger foods later in the day with coffee and desserts. This type of set up will keep the pressure off of you and will allow others to mingle and chat with one another. You may want to learn many different religions or metaphysical subjects or just may want to take new classes that will help you on a spiritual level.

October Horrorscopes 2017

Important dates:  Sukkoth and Harvest Moon on the 5th, Columbus Day on the 9th, United Nations’ Day 24th and Orionids meteor showers on the 24th and Halloween/Samhain on the 31st.

Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset.

Also called:  Samhuinn/Samhainn (Scottish Gaelic); Sauin (Manx Gaelic).

Celebrations:  Bonfires, guising/mumming, divination, feasting, trick or treating.

Significance: End of the harvest season, beginning of winter. 

As millions of children and adults participate in the fun of Halloween on the night of October 31st, few will be aware of its ancient Celtic roots in the Samhain (Samain) festival. In Celtic Ireland about 2,000 years ago, Samhain was the division of the year between the lighter half (summer) and the darker half (winter). At Samhain, the division between this world and the other world was at its thinnest, allowing spirits to pass through.

The family’s ancestors were honored and invited home whilst harmful spirits were warded off. People wore costumes and masks to disguise themselves as harmful spirits and thus avoid harm. Bonfires and food played a large part in the festivities. The bones of slaughtered livestock were cast into a communal fire, household fires were extinguished and started again from the bonfire. Food was prepared for the living and the dead, food for the ancestors who were in no position to eat it, was ritually shared with the less well off.

Christianity incorporated the honoring of the dead into the Christian calendar with All Saints (All Hallows) on November 1st, followed by All Souls on November 2nd. The wearing of costumes and masks to ward off harmful spirits survived as Halloween customs. The Irish emigrated to America in great numbers during the 19th century especially around the time of potato famine in Ireland during the 1840’s. The Irish carried their Halloween traditions to America, where today it is one of the major holidays of the year. Other traditions through time have blended into Halloween, for example the American harvest time tradition of carving pumpkins.*

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Some personal changes seem to be on the horizon as well.  You are thinking with more determination and showing more persistence in what you want to do. You are taking the bull by the horns and doing what you feel is right for you.  The work place needs to be more nurturing as it is currently a place of stress, exhaustion and never-ending tasks and responsibilities.  It would be in your best interest if you could rest more, go out with friends or family, and have a good time. Home life may bring some unexpected changes which will take you by surprise.  In the end, these are good changes which push you into an environment or situation which is much more positive than your current circumstances.

’TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

This is a month where you can truly have some fun with your family and friends.  Romance is also very interesting now.  Your schedule is tiresome.  You work long hours and they need to be adjusted for better health. You over do everything. Your friends may cause you some issues and as usual you have to save the day, but all in all, a good month filled with some surprises, good luck and lots of activity.  You will be going places, having guests visit your home and you may even host a Halloween party at the last minute. You don’t have to do all the cooking or entertaining.  Ask friends to bring their special gourmet dish so that everyone shares in the cooking expense.

“GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Getting in touch with your feminine side is important to understand why you help so many.  You are the caregiver or caretaker of your family and friends.  Focus on your goals and dreams, move towards them a little each day and before you know it, you have reached your dreams and have proved to everyone that you can do whatever it is you want to do.  Relationships seem to blossom and are progressing smoothly. Business and personal partnerships (marriage included) go in a much more positive direction; however, you may be thinking of a time to change partners in a relationship if you are bored or feel as if the oomph has left your relationship.  The choice is yours. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21
Update all important papers when you have the time. Getting your finances in order is a good thing.  Friends will get you out of the house and encourage you to have fun.  There is so much you want to accomplish, so start with one project or task at a time and soon you will have many projects done.  This is a time to show your creativity and craftsmanship with Halloween costumes for the little ones or for yourself if you go out with your friends.  This is a great time to start making presents for the December holiday gift giving season. Homemade gifts are always appreciated and remembered.

•LEO – July 22 – August 21
Dealing with women can be interesting as it seems that arguing is eminent.  Be careful of your words because you apparently annoy some of the women in your life.  It’s a good time to travel or continue with your studies towards a degree or certification.  This is an amazing time to buckle down and study hard as the rewards will be greater than you thought.  It’s also a time where your philosophies of life may change, whether religious, spiritual or mundane; you are looking at life from many different perspectives.  Ideas that you thought you believed may surprise you and you seem to be turning towards another belief or point of view.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21
You need to change something important in your life. Be direct, get answers, change what needs to be changed and move forward in a very positive manner.  Everything is before you now, so handle those responsibilities and deliver on your promises to others. Your career is interesting and challenging at the same time.  You are interested in furthering your career, but are unsure if it will be in the same field or with the same company.  The options are all around you and you will do well in either your current company or finding employment elsewhere.  Your contribution to either will be beneficial.  You have ambition now and do not want to be at the bottom of the ladder. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

This is a month where you shine in almost everything you do.  Librans are feeling a sense of total accomplishment.  Even though many recent changes have made you take another path, this is a good thing.  You will be self-sufficient and learn how to make good decisions for yourself now.  You are happy, feel confident and your self-esteem level is at an all-time high.  You are pursuing things that you left on the back burner for too long and getting so many things done. Thinking about travel, fun, doing things differently and making important decisions are all on your mind.

˜SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20
Friends, groups and associations are important now as well as getting to know who your true friends are and who are the ones who use you on a regular basis.  Even though many of the changes in your life the last couple of months are of your doing, things are still a bit confused and unsettled.  Big changes take a long time to get used to and to work properly.  Helping out your family and friends seem to be your never-ending lot in life, but at some point, you need to take care of yourself.  You may experience a bit of sadness or depression since you feel that you have trusted so many around you and find out that there have been a few betrayals.  You will bounce back because you do have so many other wonderful people in your life who truly love and care for you.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

What a great month to reinvent yourself.  Get a makeover, or perhaps a new hair cut or color.  It doesn’t have to be a party for anything in particular, but just have the people around you who mean a lot to you. It’s a great time to catch up and find out what has been going on in everyone’s lives. So many positive changes are coming your way within your home life and/or career. For you snowbirds, it’s time to get everything organized and focused for your six- month trek down South for the winter.  You feel refreshed and exuberant about your life and want others to share the joy you feel at this time.  Have a party to show how much you appreciate your family and friends.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Family relationships improve as long as you don’t talk about money. Sibling relationships in particular start to take on a new, closer direction.  A lot of good fortune and luck will be available to you now, so it would be good if you planned in which areas of your life you will take a chance, move forward or change something that isn’t quite right.  Getting expert opinions about how to make your money grow would be a positive step to ensuring your future financial security.  Figuring out what you can and cannot do would be an important step to realizing how you can live your life without draining your resources.

AQUARIUS – January 19 — February 17

Family is important now.  Helping out where you can is very much appreciated. Being drained is not going to help you achieve your goals.  Limit the amount of time you talk to those who really need your help as they are draining the life out of you. Being tired at work is unacceptable and will make your performance on the job mediocre, so you do need to get a good night’s sleep.  Let your troubles and negative thoughts leave you when it is bedtime.  You are always there for the underdog anyway or ready to help a family member with any issue or concern that comes their way.  Be sure that you also take care of yourself as well.

œPISCES – February 18 – March 19
What a wonderful time to start an art or music class. You seem to be very artistic and creative, so whatever you feel are your strengths should now be recognized and nurtured.  You have unbelievable talent in many areas, but you need to focus that energy on finding out what your passion is so you will always enjoy what you create.  Teaching others your creative gifts would be a blessing to so many. Things may not always be the way they seem.  You are being drawn into obscure and bizarre circumstances with family, friends and neighbors.  It is up to you to make sure that everyone is on the same page or at the very least sees reality in these areas of conflict or difficulty.  Speak carefully to others as you may feel it is imperative to tell a fib or two and then you will get caught.
