I am banana

I am a banana..I am a banana...
look at me move:)

Happy New Year!!!2012 Oh yea!!

white witch rich with old whore

I have so many witchy names that I got one confused. Actually, during this holiday season I messed up two orders..
This is what a lovely user of good soap and cream says to me, "don't worry, just send it with my next order"
Where I would always follow with something like, " hey man keep the cream on me" 'or, in my own head I would say, " You tool!" "Now, she thinks you are a dumb ass whore!"
I am a dumb ass whore then, ha ha in my pad in Livonia Michigan, am! :)
seriously though..

Once it leaves my shop, I cannot rightfully send it to someone else.
The task at hand is~~~ to take accountability for our actions and adore what we buy.
Oh, she ordered a Sand Storm at it highest price and I will include the rightful violet juniper soap called white witch in her box and maybe a corner or two somthing something..
These are the things I have had to adjust to when dealing with ETSY~ness
Why are you giving me a minus? Why? ( I am a baby about that!!)
I will tell you that fear manipulation is not for me on any day.
That is why I will explore making a new web site which will take me out of the fray and elevate me even more.
Will I leave Etsy? No, I do not believe that will be needed at all.

"What ever challenge I encounter in business, I can take care of it with a yearning for learning the exact pathway to success and sitting down with my fear and by ironing out my worries"

Good things do cost money. And when I say I only use really awesome fats, just know that I also pay top dollar for every gorgeous ingredient that goes in my stuff.
BTW, the African gold oil smells like the inside of an anus...I put just a drizzle in the black soap which I just cut this morning. Just a bit on top. I am looking forward to smelling this soap in a week or two to see how the banana might come through.

don't get your hackles up

what is a hackel anyhow? The plumage on my neck?
Oh yea! My hair does look really good right now! It is those lovely African oils from Shea Terra..I want them all the time, the marula is wonderful with argan and makes your hair naturally glisten. It seems like I always have argan oil around lately!
Argan oil is high in squaline. I did buy some squaline derived from olive oil with vitamin e at the market the other day. I still don't know how I feel about it. I like the least amount of tampering with my essential fatty acids, thank you.
Vitamine e, is not one of my favorite things because it is mostly made from GMO soy..who needs it!
Mystic wrote something about not getting my hackels up as a Libra and it got me going on reviewing my life in 2011. I am keeping it cool and bringing in the boons through the thoroughness in my mind.

For me it means, be kind
be graceful and dignified.
always show respect and smile at everyone or a nod:) will do
always forgive even if it takes you a day or two not years ok
let go of what you want from others
drop the bag of bitterness against them
be perfect when making something
be organized and take notice of details
always be mindful of the best thing at this moment
let that big bag of judgement go babe
who are you? The guilt police?
Guilt is a reward to do the wrong thing again
drop the big bag of jealously too ~ it is a form of hate
become a true artist of potions and fats and allow all the best things to unfold before you
written after a dose of walnut flower essence and pretty face flower essence

thank you
check out this lovely review about eleneetha, so many boons!

aster faster

the first flower I picked up was Aster for Illumination.
When you feel like the whole world is on some stupid strange freeking road to selfishness, what else would you choose?

Money money is good but if you is the point and lie to get your way, then that is what you are going to get.
These are a just a few things I conjure up while sleeping. It is like I know you are lying to me and I can see you from 10 feet higher
So yes, illumination.

2 drops wild desert rose for opening my heart and forgiving more, allowing success to fall at my feet on the floor:)

Madia Flower essence for precision and focus
(here is what the flower repertory says;
positive qualities:
Precise thinking, disciplined focus and concentration.
Patterns of imbalance:
Becoming easily distracted, inability to concentrate, dull or listless.
The healthy soul needs to learn to contract as well as expand - it must be able to narrow the consciousness, and limit the experience. One who can do this is able to focus and direct energy in a very clear and productive manner.

Indian paintbrush for the constant creativity and ideas which flourish in my mind and project to the world through my hands..:)
sunflower for one who chases starlight all day, who turns her head and looks at our star all day...

And is where is Mars right now in my chart I have to ask?
Mars in Virgo till Summer 2012!
All I am saying is look and see where this planet resides and visits in your chart and you will find some stuff stirring up.
If I look at my natal chart, Virgo is my 8th house of sex money and other peoples money, digestion, little viruses that creep in.
I got "crop dusted" by a perfume wearing muggle! I mean really, I could smell her on me an hour after she left! I had to go home and lie down for a bit because she poisoned me with her disgusting fake whole bottle of poison she poured on her self.
I kept backing away and she kept talking about vitamins for her kids. Poor things already being slightly confused from all the per~fumes on their mamma.
It isn't just me. My daughter has to take a shower upon returning from visiting friends and washes all the stench from the perfumed sheets and towels and detergent odor on their clothing.
I use an Eco brand laundry soap. I want to smell vetiver not freeking Tide! Dang man!

Mars transiting the 8th makes you very sexy and alluring. You are like a sapphire ball of light almost black in the middle...and the farther out one looks, the colors seem endless glowing gold and silver, remnants from a super nova having gloriously created these elements in its death throws only for you...

If I look at Mars being in my solar 12th, I get a completely different picture.
One more intriguing. Many people getting sick, myself as well tackling some sort of winter Michigan cold that blew me away here a while ago.
There is a shift from almost plodding to now walking more briskly forward..Plus,if the planet makes any sort of connection to natal Mars, then you have a person who may not even have one moment to spare..
Stop and spare a moment for your self and don't be sorry!

Which soap are you using now? I am bathing with the ylang ylang clove coffee soap I made a while back. It is a nice bar I must say. I waited a long time before using it and I am glad I didn't let all of that batch slip away before enjoying a well cured bar for myself.
My friend Miss Lindenglitter, loves it and said it smells of carnation.
Ylang ylang is funny, too much and your stomach turns a or two drops and you have a sweetness that is quite unique and feels good in your nose.
I would love to get my hands on something new pretty soon. I want the yarrow, I know that and I deeply crave the chamomiles as they remind me of my childhood. I might buy some zdravets next year and a couple of different resins.
I want some frankincense which is real incense~y and some vetiver which is real smokey mixed with the smooth Hatian.
I have added a beautiful smokey vetiver to the old whore soap. Her rich aura of scent lingers on you a little more. Plus she is for anyone. She is good for your skin too. Yes she is...

Thank you:)

which flower

I have a new experiment that I am conducting every morning and I really think it makes a difference in how I conduct myself all day in my mind and with others.
I prepare my flower essence blessing before leaving the house. 2 ounces pure water;
with each 2 drops of essence of my choice as I recite my intentions to myself. Like, pomegranate for abundance and yarrow for a golden glow of light around me and desert larkspur for service and better communication of my that.
I find that the aura I create around myself is subtle but there is an attraction of just the things I intend in the morning.
Maybe it is only my mind but maybe my mind is all it takes to create the reality I choose for myself.
Tomorrow I might choose calendula for steady thoughts or chamomile along with black eyed Susan for knowing my true self and being calm enough to choose how I will execute every action.
At the end of the day, I find that when I don't spend too much time justifying my ideas, I am much calmer. Hey, you want some belly fat burning Dr oz thing? I will put that together for you!
By the way, I love my belly and everything it stands for. :)just between us, I mean what am I supposed to look like at my age anyhow? And high heels? Forget it honey, I have feet like bear paws! (from martial arts, climbing big hills, having babies and making soap:))

saying so long to 2011

this being our last week together.
I will remember all the good times and release the angst and tethers
which bind me to negativity and sorrow and I will have become more confident and have shed
wayward thoughts of doom
I will bring in precision and focus and boons.
I will have learned to trust my heart
and take probiotics so there are no farts
Happiness and Joy Full 2012!

spreading the love

and generosity and what it means for me, Anastasia.

It means that I can put my needs aside for a few people here and there to give them what they need.
When I didn't get the job as vitamins buyer, I was crushed. One, because I am so clever and why can't they see that and two, because I am super clever and they should exalt me to any level I might choose!
So here came an ordinary looking quiet bloke and they said he wowzed them. I thought to myself,seriusly, he wowzed them? Ok, ok, I will exalt him. I will serve him and make him feel loved. It turned out he is pretty stellar as a fellow. A raw vegan for 20 years or so..I mean seriously, the guy is lovely. I now call him guruji lol, he laughs every time.
Does this mean I wouldn't have cut it as a buyer? No, man..I am still very clever and meanwhile have processed some new tasks that will inevitably help me in my freeking corporate "other" life.
Why do I rant about something so common, you might be thinking?
Well, when I get a little trimmed in my life, it sticks with me a while. I have to hold my head high in defeat as well as when things are grand( which they are).
I have been a little trimmed recently.
I took it rather hard.
The feeling of fear and uncertainty tried to creep in and hold me back a bit.
And, there I was being held back and decided to use this time to get better at what I am already doing.
Make better soap and get some darn good labels made.
I have the labels the way I like them, but when one has to cut and then seal and then tape over..jeez, I can spend 2 hours on one order!
In 2012 I will commit to 2 or three butters and 3 oils and print actual labels that do not require to much effort besides lining them up so that they are not crooked.
Thank you for always being so good to me and may your days be filled with family and harmony and riches this holiday season!

Lets talk about it

maybe not soap but how it was foggy this morning and one reviews the last year and its glorious frustrations and elevating motivations.
Ok soap it is..
Well I have ground the roasted plantain skins (platanos they are called by locals in Costa Rica), they turned pitch black and I have been pounding them but good.
So far they smell sweet and caramel like. As if the soul of big banana still remains even in the ashes of what it once was.
I wonder what it will apear to be at the very end of this process of my African Inspired Black Soap mande with Black Cumin Seed Oil.....
I haven't decided on the scent as a finality..we will...oh yes we will!
Seems like if cumin stands out in the soap I should go all India..sandalwood, patchouli and a drop of jasmine?
Or make it completely medicinal and go helicrysum on the whole thing?
Not the time to make that decision. For now the pounding and the grinding of the blessed banana soul.
"I allow the Universe to bestow its wealth up on me easily and often"

Happy Yule ya'll

This is the night. The time when the Sun makes its way back to us, as if your didn't know. I feel the magic all around me and even though emotions are high, we are keeping it together, able to look at things with compassion and even cry from loosing a friend or lover.
It is same if you ask me. It hurts just the same.
But I am not here to talk of pain and loss. No!
Everything is learning and if you have to have your gut wrenched out then do it and be done with it because every thing is good.

Now, for the soapmaking goodness and all the stuff that makes me happy..I have dehydrated platano peels and will make an African inspired Black Soap. I am grinding them but good and then adding raw cacao nibs and grinding them finely and then making soap using Black cumin seed oil and African ootanga oil along with some castor oil just in case it makes a good shampoo bar. What if it does?
What if you rinse with vinegar and it makes for a nice head of hair?
I like where this is going, I do!
But what should the scent be? Lemon myrtle and petitgrain? that sounds nice.
We will need something which has staying power due to the cumin seed oil having a slight scent... patchouli maybe?
"I open myself up to the wisdom of the Universe"

merc retro then direct with uranus direct and more thoughts on that

So as you know I make soap..ya, it is my passion..
so, I planed a nice offering as you may have read on the post before this one. I wanted the tree smell and the holiday feeling. I got all that and more by the way.
But this story is why things get jumbled. Why after money is spent and believe me, merc retro is all about money decisions and waiting for money, writing checks and having to release that addiction of hoarding.
I bought many oils for festiveness but everything came late. My 2 ounce glass jars have yet to arrive.I get so upset..meanwhile I do have access to jars and such and whilst on my travels to procure, I encountered a gorgeous group of oils from Russia.
(*there is a picture of some Anastasia and it is not me)))

They have resins available to consume, pine, cedar, fir!
I have been chewing on larch resin and my body is ringing..first off I drank twice as much water the days I chewed larch resin, second, I had more physical endurance and didn't want to eat so much. Huh!!
By the way, it may not be for you especially if you cannot endure any sort of odd bitter taste.
I kind of like a little bitter, it stimulates my gut and I want my gut instincts to be fresh and work well. Bitter stimulates the liver..which is where one stores bitter thoughts as well.
Have I said bitter enough?
I am releasing more and more with these transits.
Maybe it is because having had Pluto transit mt 12th for so long which has now has moved forward to my first house, I feel free. I do not cry as much and I have feel like I mastered new skills even throughout the heartaches.
Now with Uranus, we have some stuff we should review.
What happened last August? Review that and now add an octave and gauge your growth from that stand point because honey it is about to get real!
January is another very intense period of growth where you can move to the next level what ever that may be for you.
Many insecure people in your life will fall away. let go and grieve and do your work. You must complete your tasks and think clearly.

I look at friends like this..

nice looking skinny fellow, "are you married?'

Me, "no I am not married, I make soap and study astrology"
fellow, "oh I don't believe in any of that!"
Me in my head, "bye, while already having put 4 feet of distance and expanding that rapidly..
Really, already carrying a bag of judgement? Walk on honey!!

I am fussy I will admit that. I am not looking for a sex fest here. Just an intelligent man who likes to build gazebos and grow stuff with me while we have tea and talk of flower's moods and stardust. We Libras! la la la la.
lol lol

New sale coming up on etsy
have a great day and pay attention to details.
thank you

The feeling of Uranus going direct

and the Moon blaring down at me all night and it is cold cold cold Michigan, Livonia, Lunar eclipse December10,2011 :) :) :) if you are up right now, go look at it and make a wish.

"Thank you for my beautiful home life"

Thank you for wanting my soap and then buying a bar or two. That makes me happy. Every other thing can fall by the way side because I seem to be quite content with the way things are at the moment. Good soap, chill home life, great business sense...

Uranus direct today.. electric vibe, honest vibe, sometimes eerie in its nature..tell you what with this aspect we are about to embark on to so much information we are gonna blow governments and old outdated beliefs like a super star on its death throws. Why should't we?

I have been reading about the next Uranus Pluto square a-comin'
Uranus is in Aries which is conflict of sort at any moment. They like to tackle big things and it has something to do with their excellent hand eye coordination and their animal charm:)
And Then You have Pluto in Capricorn breaking things down as it gets rid of unwanted crud balls that can't even linger in any corner. Pluto energies are like being in open water in the where to hide is all in your head so make the best of it I say.
(yes, I said crud balls))

I am down with doing your best. Be polite and kind if you can. But move it honey, you take too long, some might think. I do it all day.
Yesterday I could barely lift the totes at work. There were about 20 boxes all told.
I will continue to do one thing at a time and not rush too much, I think to myself...
I will walk in to the back room at work and my coworker will say, "50 boxes Anastasia!!"
"dude, really, stop counting them!"
"I cant", he
That there is Uranus at its best.
making soap tonight.

In The Woods by a Fire Soap
firs and spruces and smokey notes

Kyphi 2011 Soap

the way things are in December

I woke up at 4 in the morning while the moon was blaring down reflective light upon my bed where I was tucked under my three down blankets..(my room is cold). I made a wish. You should too. Bring things in to the open in your own mind and then you can share them with one person. Hopefully the right person and release those sad insecurities to the Universe, saying, "I am worthy of all my good and accept myself and my gifts joyously"
My emotions are high right now. I can feel injustice in the air. I can see peoples shallow expressions and think to myself, "what am I doing with this lot?"
That is my Capricorn Moon, Saturn transiting my Libra Sun and Pluto being in the first house on top of my Moon right now I suppose.
We can linger on the wrong thing and loose sight of reality. I must be diligent and not too emotional. I get my feelings hurt all the time..and that is where holding ones head up gracefully applies to happiness and calm detachment.
Problem, I am not detached as a whole. Having three planets in Scorpio..yea, I am a little intense and gritty at times even.
The other day I got in trouble at my job for saying "hell". I was just messin' and said "what the hell dude?"
Yuppers, I was that person..I said I was, But really, what the hell dude?
My wish? The one whilst the moon was shining it's glorious light upon me, was,
"Thank you for my new home"

Let me tell you about my new butter slash face healer. You can use it all over as I do. It is loaded with super seed oils which will soak in and provide nutrients right to the source and not waste a moment.

Super Fine Shea Butter Cream
date nut oil
ootanga oil
sea buckthorn oil
yangu oil
marula oil
argan oil
kukui nut oil
carrot seed oil
baobab oil
shea butter to hold the all together
These oils are suspended by the shea butter and not a simple additions. No, The oils are woven throughout the thick shea in such a way that you get 50/50 shea to oils ratio.
I am not messing around when it comes to the healing essential oils within this cream.
rose otto (of which I only have a few drops left~I used it all like a pig:)
Roman chamomile
calendulla oil
and one drop yarrow for golden light energy to flow upon you:)
I hope you get one and thank me in the morning!
thank you

Gemini Space Dust

The eclipse is in Gemini and it is coming soon to consciousnesses near you.
Gemini, look over your bills and pay them and don't look back and worry about what you had.
You're moving on and making something of yourself, albeit not the comfy way it always has been. But that is only for now. It is only a matter of time honey!

Can we say that for the rest of us? What do I know besides my intuition which is mighty keen I tell ya!
Libra, pay attention and don't skip steps based on haste..that is haste not hate Cancer folk..
I know you have some judgment baggage here and there and must release, forgive and move on honey. Use your great memory skills to accomplish something grand for yourself.
Virgo, be well, find some new interests which make you flourish in golden sunsets, not golden showers but golden sunsets mmk? lol (kidding, k?)
Leo, you are going to change your direction completely in February, meanwhile do a great job at what you are doing now..soon you must perform at your highest.
Aquarius, quirky, quirky dear Aquarius!!
Someone is mad at your because you would not take their advice always drumming to a different beat and all. Maybe they feel like you are not in step and it hurts them a tad..what do I know!!
Taurus, move it honey. Take some probiotics (Garden Of Life Raw For Women)
What a difference a few of those make.
Capricorn, you can change and accept new ways of doing things without giving up everything for cyber space.
Aries, be nice to your inner sanctum of friends and family. What can I say about that? Listen, they didn't like Jesus enough in his own home town, and you know how that turned out!
Pisces, with Mars being in Virgo for the next 8 months, I suggest you think more and say less. It will be interesting to watch you. So grand you all are:)
Sag ladies and gents..come out of your cave of darkness and show your bright light
like a new sun forming from the debris of an old shattered star coming together in glorious brilliant cleansing light.
Breathe now and be free from misery and shame from abusive words and sad,sad angry soul suckers that have been removed for you:)Time to be suave about yourself! Your beauty and grace unfolds where ever you go.
Hey Scorpio, you do an excellent job at something and people can see it more and more. Come the new year, you will be super busy. Oh yea!
Well, bless that!

*question, how is day old baguette and hot black tea so good this time day? I have been enjoying it and must tell you that my astro thoughts are not meant to hurt anyone in particular or at all.
:) :) :)

Thank you

oh my sweet Virgo

you have such smart ways
I cleaned up my house
and threw out old frays
I cleaned behind mirrors and greeted The East with gratitude for having more than I thought
I paid homage to The Hot South for its path of fire and passion
I bowed to The West for its painted brightly~ colors which bring inspiration and fulfillment of all my desires
and to the North sisters I give my respect for honor and survival and wisdoms of the sages, within me:)
Have a great week!
silly me
what am I a poet now? :)

Friday, December 2, 2011

to begin at the begining

would be long a tedious for you, maybe some day I would tell about my life but after writing a few things down, I am afraid it would turn out in to a misery fest. You know the kind of time where you analyse whys and hows and oh my but that was a sad thing there.
It is all in what we nurture, what we pay attention to. I can tell you that with Capricorn Moon in the first house, I can mull a thing over and over and cry and remember and grit my teeth and set it aside finally, as something I am dwelling on for the wrong reasons. It can take days if I let it. Years if there is an ex involved, lol!
I am free and they are free to move on to glorious new situations!

So I would rather make stuff and share it with you.
Like this mask I have been using every night now for a week.

One vanilla bean, ground with green clay in a mortar ( I do this for about three days so that everything gets good and mixed up and pounded into a fine powder, I then add a few pinches of patchouli herb, you can use what you want like calendula or rose. Grind those up together and then add maybe a few drops of your favorite face oil.
*dry patchouli herb and vanilla bean smell amazing together.
This can be used as a mask or a scrub. I mixed it with vinegar for a really stimulating face wash.
I followed with some plain cold pressed marula oil. My face still tingles a bit and I have a nice glow.

Try infusing organic coconut oil with vanilla bean and patchouli herb. It is wonderful and then you can use this on your bod whenever. Why spend money on expensive creams which provide no real cure. Try the natural way!
Simply heat the oil in a double boiler and allow the ingredients to meld together. It is beautiful really.
Thank you:)

merc retro Let's Have A Sale!

Do you feel it very tight vibe. It is like a rope came and tied itself around us and pulled the time back a year ago, ten years ago or more.
Being a very clever Libra, I can remember some pretty vivid images of the past.
"yea, remember when you told me I was fat?)
"I never said, you were fat"
"Oh, yes you did it was June 15th in the woods of Virginia, when you told me I wasn't stout enough to be country because, I felt I was too refined to get dirty"
I am like Kafka in many ways ( he was a Libra)
We seem to remember things and dwell on them and then justify them..usually with an authority figure or some sort..
Better to throw all that stuff out for good, I know, but can I help it if my memory is so sharp? lol
It is small stuff, hear me!
Mercury Retrograde~trend ends Jan 6 2012.

and it is only getting better Proti Florinis, my home town

when a person has been raised in a place like that, anything is better. The village isn't what it used to be, I know, but sheesh such disarray. Can somebody go there and at least collect the trash?
I remember walking through the streets on many a day.
One of the houses is mine but I wouldn't recognize it from my imagination's view of it. It seems it wasn't so gray and dreary when I was growing up but then I was a dirty little child anyhow;
always making the mud pies!
I am glad they are soap now:)

dr oz and the pained

ok, you are fat, you are unhappy and you basically hate your life so you wait all day whilst eating fried bread to watch dr oz at 4pm and man, you feel so good after his show, that you now have hope about breaking the addiction...
so you get excited about raspberry ketones making your stomach flat and white bean extract making your body what it was before all the fried bread.
you must have it!
So you get out to the whole foods store and buy it.
Glucomanan other wise known as konjac fiber? Yes we have it honey.
( took it, my body reeled from the onslaught and I don't think I slept that whole night! Who wants that?) Everything (oz) he says is for a quick fix because the food junkies have no clue about longevity and using something for more than a day or so and other foods in green colors and maybe some orange in there.
Here is where I come in:)
How many questions do you think I will happily and patiently answer before I say something callous? 100?
400 questions baby?
One time is all it takes to hurt someones feelings..her name doesn't matter. That she wasn't even that fat doesn't matter either..what matters is my reply at her disdain as to why I didn't have the white bean extract, which was.."listen, we don't have it"
The lady, "but dr oz says it is so good"
me,"well then I think Dr Oz should take white bean extract!"
snap!! She got so pissed..(hey, who am I the dr oz police?)
Who is Dr Oz the king of the world?

See, I am not a saint!
I blurted out the first thing that came to mind.
"I serve patiently and with joyous heart"

not mumbo jumbo and god fearing

First Observational Tests of Eternal Inflation

The eternal inflation scenario predicts that our observable universe resides inside a single bubble embedded in a vast inflating multiverse. We present the first observational tests of eternal inflation, performing a search for cosmological signatures of collisions with other bubble universes in cosmic microwave background data from the WMAP satellite. We conclude that the WMAP 7-year data do not warrant augmenting LCDM with bubble collisions, constraining the average number of detectable bubble collisions on the full sky to be less than 1.6 at 68% CL. Data from the Planck satellite can be used to more definitively test the bubble collision hypothesis.

Stephen M. Feeney (UCL), Matthew C. Johnson (Perimeter Institute), Daniel J. Mortlock (Imperial College London), Hiranya V. Peiris (UCL)
check out the whole article below if you want to.

check out these DVD's, all on Netflix (love it);

How The Universe Works
In To The Universe
The Universe

After years of obsessing about religion and bowing to the stone ( I was raised in a Greek home as a Greek Orthodox) I still get little shocks of fear go through me when I think that perhaps Mary lied about being pregnant by an angel. Well? Have you ever read The Creed? You should study the lines for a day and tell me what you think of that today.
Perhaps she knew they would stone her. Which they would have, they still do in many regions in that area on Earth today!
My point being that the idea that we are more than a bunch of hateful fucks banging stones together about who God loves most aren't we?

Well it turns out that our Universe ( which we always conceived as never ending)...that somehow through a divine spark of energy... isn't the only Universe! Ours as ginormous as it is may not be the only one! I always liked that notion but others said no way..I am like yes it could be!

Right now we are expanding in all directions in an even grander scale and faster and wider apart. In a few billion years, there might not be any visible stars in our realm at all and only our own planets in our own solar system. It won't matter because global warming is real, our sun will get hotter and hotter and we will eventually be consumed by the sun, but fear not our species will have been extinct and gone from this planet if that were possible. I think it can.
Why in 100 years we will have evolved into a different species just based on the fact that our brains are ever expanding with the Universe. We consume more omegas and resveratrols and our brains work better than ever! Some scientists say that this period is the best one to be alive in.
In reality we are 13.7 billion years old composed of the same materials created during the big bang and it is happening in other dimensions, so yes in a way there does exist this idea of reincarnation.
When a dying star explodes, it spreads itself billions of miles across space and then millions or billions of years later forms new spheres of light in stars which form solar systems like ours. Can you imagine what kind of life forms would have evolved as no two planets or stars are the same?
Here is an idea;

Gâyatrî Mantra

We meditate on the glory of the Creator;
Who has created the Universe;
Who is worthy of Worship;
Who is the embodiment of Knowledge and Light;
Who is the remover of all Sin and Ignorance;
May He enlighten our Intellect.

During winter months of misfortune, O Lord, may my denuded branches changelessly waft toward Thee a secret scent of gratitude. Paramahansa Yogananda

Thanksgiving and praise open in your consciousness the way for spiritual growth and supply to come to you. Spirit pushes Itself out into visible manifestation as soon as a channel is opened through which It can flow. You should be thankful for everything at all times. Realize that all power to think, and speak, and act comes from God, and that He is with you now, guiding and inspiring you.

Paramahansa Yogananda
"Thanksgiving Message"

"A secret scent of gratitude"..that is beautiful. Do you see how Yogananda can see dark energy and dark matter way before his time? I should meditate more:)
Meanwhile I have decided that my secret scent of gratitude is all over me.
Yesterday a woman said, "you smell delicious,what are you wearing?".
I was wearing sandalwood
pink grapefruit

Today I'll be wearing the aura of ylang ylang and blood orange from a batch of soap that I was compelled to make first thing; with ylang ylang and blood orange, a little patchouli to weave them together proper like.
A secret scent of that like being smug because everything is going your way?

Have a wonderful day!

Solar Eclipse Vibes with Sagittarius overhaul

Mars in Virgo and Mercury retrograde is not enough. We have a New awareness for the next 6 months at least as this solar eclipse is in our abundantly rich, joyful, gassy benefactor Sagittarius and his ruler Jupiter.
If I were to harness any of this energy, I would consider the truth in all things and honor is big here.
We are all busy making money and it gets frantic but the results are huge. I believe there is some sort of desire to escape through drugs or liquor.
How much can you control?
Not much..sooner or later it catches up with you and you know it.
Take a step back and look at the grand picture ahead of you. This may require letting go of someone dear to your heart. It is ok. You can begin to intend the best things for yourself. Everything else falls in to place.
You are free and they are free to move in to new glorious situations.
And with Pluto in Capricorn we are set to destroy old un-usefull patterns.
What do I know?
I am making soap and diggin' my life. Yes, my computer broke (yet another one) and I will buy a new system only for me. I am thinking Apple..we'll see. I won't purchase a new computer until after January 5th, 2012.
For now, I will think clearly, focus on my task and do one thing at a time whilst serving 1000 people today with directions to their food destinations and general good feelings of gratitude for the feast tomorrow!
Happy Thanksgiving!
In gratitude and joy for all the comfort and loving family we have around us.

What's hot and happening is

Be suave and do what you are supposed to do and everything is going to be all right. A step back is better than a big foot forward only to suffer and toil.
Toil, I say!
Why toil the hours away? Find something you love and don't be a dickwad ( he he) to loved ones and happiness is all around. Moods are like vampires, they suck...he he

In my dream last night, I was walking all along the isle ways at work in my big fluffy robe and matching slippers. I still feel a bit vulnerable there....I reckon.
It is so easy to be myself and then I loose it. If you ask me about ALL the shampoos I will get a little miffed I suppose.
"I serve with patience and love"
I mean there is Google, how does one not go read about the product they want or don't want? Skin Deep, that other one I can't remember..The way I see it is simple. No cruddy chemicals on my face or pink parts. This is the best way. No exceptions at all. So I guess selling shampoo shouldn't be my strong point, but I have clients who want to know what shampoo I use.
I have tried all of them! Right now I use 365 whole foods brand and it is ok. I want a shampoo which is safe and not chemically without the residue of soap bars and glycerin in them! Is this too much to ask?
I won't use vinegar every time will I?
Well here is a new, old quest to find a hair wash that I might like..
Giovani max volume, burts bees, avalon organics, that other one that lies about neroli being in the scent base and it is fake after all.. Heavenly hair something!
Questing for hair love..I should call it:)

Soap making on this night's menu is a beautiful sleepy blend;
Night Time Song Soap
roman cham
sweet marjoram
sea buckthorn oil

Jasmine Ruby Red Grapefruit Soap Stars
there are four spectacular stars that will light up your day or night with sparkling loving joyful laughter)
"you are the sunshine of my life..yea.."

a shea butter, og coconut oil, Spanish olive oil soap base in both of these sweet cakes:)

thank you:)
Have a beautiful night~

people who

are hungry
people who are tired
politicians who forget what they lied about yesterday and even as one would say, in mid sentence!
Do we really want to depend on what those guys are planning for our economy, our lives, our futures?

Well for one thing I would stay away from doctors who prescribe drugs to make you feel better that in the end kill you..but hey who am I, perfect..non:)
I would take a acetaminophen with codeine every day if it didn't make me moody and constipated..I love that one..or even ibuprofen sounds good on some painful migrany days. I know why my head hurts though..all I have to do is get that big bag of guilt and sorrow oh and fear off of me..sigh...:)
I am trying not to take any pharma drugs. No ibuprofen, no acetaminophen. Every time I take that stuff, I get sick and dry in nature. No wonder why the whole world is constipated, bloated, gassy, acidic and arthritic..All that stuff collects in your intestines and slowly allows small toxic particles to enter the blood stream on a daily basis.
It still amazes me in so many ways that the masses (not us of course) need Dr.Oz to tell them what is good for them. Well, in defense, I have to think that most old folks do not have a computer to research stuff and maybe can't drive. Who knows, in my experience they are hurting.And in our time here we are evolving into a species who is consuming many plastic (tiny) particles which will undoubtedly create more disease. I mean how much titanium dioxide ( a common coating) can your system take?

Cilantro to remove heavy metals has been noted. Cilantro is said to change the polarity of the blood. How? I don't understand it fully but it is something about the aldehides, or borneol and certain volatile constituents.
The idea is to eat it fresh. Juiced if you could stand it. I chop it in a refreshing salad. When eaten fresh cilantro is a wonderful way to rid of heavier toxins in the body. If you take just one pharmaceutical you will have some residue in your liver. why not try cilantro for a week..
If you look at the chemical composition of coriander you will be astounded. It is huge. Hundreds of micro elements!

check it out here..

Refreshing Cilantro Salad
One bunch cilantro chopped fine
one gorgeous tomato
one sweet white Spanish onion
2 lemons juiced
good salt (Himalayan)
eat it with sprouted tortillias or in my case French Bread, avocado and cheese melt with this on the side.

have wonderful day
making some good soap today
shea butter soap
more soul radiance
and a chamomile with sea buckthorn
and then maybe a wild rose with chamomile and sweet marjoram now doesn't that sound so nice...

dabbling with ideas

I want to make perfume oils for the holidays. I want sandalwood lately and this takes me on a journey of "what else".
I will blend these now and offer them right at Mercury retrograde. (Nov. 24)
how nice to anoint in the morning with sandalwood and neroli oil or
Sandalwood and rose otto or sandalwood patchouli.
I believe that the scent you put out acts as a magnet to attract the right energies around you. Take me for example..
When I wear patchouli and neroli, women love me. When I wear ambergris men are intrigued.
interesting..something animal always brings more animal notes in life as well.
Or when I wear sandalwood neroli, people just come around and want to be near me.."I like your smell what is that you are wearing?"
Today I mixed sandalwood, petitgrain, patchouli, neroli and pink grapefruit oils. As the more volatile oils evaporate one is left with the soft warm tones of what sandalwood and patchouli have managed to fuse together in the end.
The citrus oils go in about an hour on me but patchouli stays till three:)

After The Asteroid

Did you feel that? Did you panic a little or let go of your inhibitions at a certain time? I kind of got hives yesterday too. I had to go over an error and it frazzled me in such a subtle way. I had to go over something and see it through its final pathway.

The last time an asteroid got this close was 1976...I had just graduated and hooked up with Nick. He was lovely, yes... and also I had ventured in to something bigger than myself and since then I have gone through many, many transformations.

Did you know it was passing by?
Here in Michigan it was around 6:30ish or so.
I wonder if you were to think back on that moment in your time, you might have become aware of something poignant in your life.

Taurus Full Moon with Neptune Effects

Full and greedy for love and money and some other stuff that is good that we all have been guilted in to thinking otherwise.
Go ahead and tell me what you have been buying for yourself these last weeks. Bring it, it is your cosmic right to have the best things.
Neptune is going direct soon and is already getting pretty close to Pisces energies in my opinion.
Here are some things I can point out right now;
easier to create stuff
going in new learning situations
being true to who you are
being scared
wanting to know a drink or some others stuff.."blue devil hoochie juice" (Mystic calls it that I feel shy even writing the word down):)

The other day I went and bought some Kona Coffee at my store. I am at the register paying and the girls says, "56.00 dollars please, anastasia."
56 dollars for coffee? Really?
Oh yea, there isn't much Kona in reality. It is a rare treasure from Hawaii.
"would you like to put it back?"
No, I said
I will keep it.
My manager was so appalled.
"put that back, you can't buy 56 dollar coffee!"
I said I would not put it back.
This is a reflection of my wealth and beauty around me. Of course I made some to drink right away. It is delicious. I also made some soap with it. Everything has value and you are worth 56.00 coffee or tequila or that 40 dollar of plum brandy you have been looking at. To be used exclusively for the room sprays of course.
This is what I say in my head when getting stressed about money.
There is plenty of money to use whenever it needs to be used. It comes from surprising sources.
Neptune in Pisces will show us this. That we will cherish the few things we already have and observe how we already have our cups running over and spilling goodness so that everyone who walks in our domain will have been blessed by this oozing abundance.
We are not hungry or working the orchards fields. My parents did that. My mom, a strong Pisces woman, always seems to have money. You need 100 bucks, she has it. She can be so frugal, and yet so generous. It is a Pisces thing.
Neptune in Pisces will show us how to be more compassionate and yet..there will not be a naivete with regards to politics.
You want to change the world? Change your self! Change inside and manifest the best things for our planet and our families. It is our money which feeds those big wasteful mega stores! Buy fresh food and throw away the microwave for heaven's sake. Can't you wait an extra minute to boil water on a stove?
Hey, who am I, a reformer? ha ha
I do not have a microwave or any teflon pans so that I can manipulate the amount of fat I consume. That is freaky to me. That stuff is poison, throw it away..I know you make good eggs in it, but you could learn to use stainless or cast iron and make good eggs that do not kill birds with teflon.

Make sure you are drinking enough water and maybe even review the rich food you may want to consume at this time. Too many carbs make your tummy bulge out..too much gluten plugs up your intestines and the wheat of today has a ton more gluten than 100 years ago.
Probiotics and aloe vera juice would be a good way to start along with plenty of water.

All in all we are good this month and working out the kinks in our lives and projects. There are some considerations with mercury going retro at the end of the month. I already feel like electronics want to break which means more trips to Best Buy for computer repairs and such. It is cool. I used to freak when a computer broke down..they break and then you fix the problem. Now for the real work of being detached about my work life, my kids, the house, the dishes ( getting up right now for that duty) my figure, my full figure and horsey face..ha hah ah,oh...:)

get a piano

and learn to play
express yourself in a new way
learn to dance
sing with your heart~sing it!
and happiness and will always bring it~
never parting, always submerged in eternal light (starlight that is)
yet expand faster and faster together while observing all that you have and done~
do you worry about the Jesus,
the bible, the koran?
you (I) must think beyond these (guilty?) fantasies and do the right thing always because it creates the right magnetic forces that propel (me)you to our trajectory.
We are made of starlight, literally. There is dark and light and an invisible magnet that holds our whole Universe together. Imagine, the immensity of this and the size of this.
Who is the creator, some war monger who kills for territory and gold?
Who kills babies as if a noble right? Who lies and cheats and makes up stories about God? Who takes all your money and makes big armies to control the rare mineral trade?
That he died for us to prove a point? That he asked to get out of it in the end because it hurt like a dirty bitch...that..oye, after that people with armies sat down and made the rules of who would be considered true and who would not.
the wise men and women of our Earth seem to have seen something more. I sort of understand now, what Yogananda meant when he said "I am submerged in eternal light"
sort of..what do I know? I love to ponder, I do.

ok ok I went off agian, let talk soap.:)

I made some good stuff I hope you enjoy all of them
here is the recipe

80 ounces (365) olive oil
26 ounces (365) organic extra virgin coconut oil
2 ounces softly melted raw cacao butter (Navitas)
2 ounces shea butter
1 ounce og jojoba
(all three in very small amounts)
I broke this up in three bowls upon saponification

made one block for the old whore ( super delish, this batch)

one block for rhassoul soap with lemon and frankincense ( took left over old whore base and added frankincense and lemon..wonderful!)

and one block java lava
nutmeg co2, the finest clove oil with rich ylang ylang..smells like a good pumkin cake with some patchouli on it..

I hope you have a good day, I am off to do some demo work today. I will be charming and magnetic :)
thank you

Mercury Venus Sag and I feel fine

I do. My Capricorn Moon likes me to lament and worry and that makes my knees ache and also look like swollen balloons ready to burst. Why the knees, I ask myself?
Is it all the squats I did in my 20's? Could it be the 20 or so years of Martial Arts and bike riding and baby having and generally being a hard worker?

The knees:
fear about moving forward
holding back from fear
stubborn challenges that need addressed

I am experimenting with Gemmo odd is this stuff?
My friend Tonie talked to me of this some months ago ( she is bright star in my life, that one!) She said, "maybe you want to study gemmothrapy?"
I am like dugh, "what is that?"
So I did study enough to be intrigued.

*Gemmotherapy offers drainage, detoxification, regulation, nutrition and support for the human body -
* The remedies are specially made from the buds and young shoots of trees and shrubs, gathered just as they start to develop in Spring. They contain the meristematic tissues (‘plant stem cells’) that drive new growth and explain the remedies’ powerful therapeutic effects.
The gemmo Ribes Nigrum (Blackcurrant) for example is anti-inflammatory. How come? Because it stimulates corticotrophin-releasing hormone (produced by the hypothalamus that stimulates the anterior pituitary gland to release adrenocorticotropic hormone) steroidal production of the adrenals. Blackcurrants, once matured,do not have this power.

Taking a preparation of birch, ash, hazlenut and black three, today:)
My knee went from swollen to popping all night. It popped so much, I woke like 530 times!

Today November 3rd 2011 :) :)
Making a coffee soap with pumpkin seed butter and vanilla today.
Making a ciabatta to go with some salad of wild lettuce and fresh asiago and vanilla infused cranberry sauce..oh it is good day for sure:)

Vanilla Bean Infused Cranberries

one pack og fresh cranberries
2 cups og vegan sugar
one vanilla bean sliced in half
the peel of one og lemon in big slices because you want to take them out when done.. although, I have been actually eating them..delish!
1 cup or so water
cook down for 30 minutes on slow simmer and check often
serve over any dish you want

have a great day

thank you

The last week or so and the ten of swords

In astrology today, The Sun is in Scorpio and we have a Mercury and Venus both in Scorpio too. The new moon was in Sagittarius a and now, having have moved on to Capricorn.
The Sun, our star is in an "active magnetic phase" and let me tell you when all those super small neutrinos go through you and cause sparks, you are gonna feel it somehow.
If neutrinos can pass through you, billions of them undetected per second all day,I wonder what is actually happening here?
Are we magnetized as well? Of course we are. Each one of us (and we are tiny) gravitating towards one another without detection, quietly ( but not) colliding and breaking off like spheres in the heavens smash into one another and create a new combinations of elements, new spheres. Them neutrinos!

What does the ten of swords have to do with it?
I don't know about you but when I get that one I feel scared a little. I always think, now what is that gonna bring? Or well, shit there! Or my most infamous, it won't be me..naw, I can handle whatever..
Three days ago, the card came up. I thought now what could be that devastating?
I can handle it. It is not about me, all the while knowing something was up because every cell in my body has been exploding with intense energy and clear headed thinking. I went to Zerbo's, my favorite store ever, and I bought saguaro flower essence (it has been calling me for weeks now), pomegranate and painted dessert flower essences.
After I took them, I sat down and tried to manage my intentions and wondered why this obstruction with my house..why? That was the second Brandon, my real estate person called giving me, yet again, more disappointing news about my house and how there is yet another hurdle and more waiting. We have been closing since August and talking since April for heavens sake!
They like to string you along and say things from a script because they never read any real books or have any real dialog. I am pretty sure they are Republicans which becomes militant after that. "well the lawyers and the other lawyers and..blah, blah..
I said to the real estate guy, I said, "Brandon why do you keep telling me the same reason why we can't buy this house?" Do your job, dude. Fix the title work.
I caught them in a lie and that was my ten of swords experience.
I get broken hearted by strangers!
My friend Miss Tonie, said, "well, you have had a broken heart before."
It is true and by people who were thought to have loved me! Ha! :)

2 drops*Saguaro brings energies to the surface ( think, the sun's flares)having to know and trust your inner wisdom

2 drops *Indian Paint Brush
a reminder to take time out and be still in silence.
"In deep stillness you will find my presence"

2 drops * Pomegranate
to know that your inner wisdom and beauty are there during the seemingly darkest moments of your life and your connection with "the nature of things" and your feminine energy is always there.
"express your passion for life and living"
"I nurture my emotions and embrace my creative nature, from which I attract an abundant flow of resources"
(from the sweet little book, Voices Of Flowers, by, Rhonda Pallas Downey)

Thank you~

You Delicious Dog You

When I say delicious I mean in words and deeds and not necessarily looks, although I do like a clean man with his pockets inside his pants:)
he he

I made a rare beauty this morning. I blended something pretty awesome and certainly complex!
What happens I do not know but when I sit down and intend what will be with what I have right at this moment, something really cool comes out..really cool.
Or is it me? Am I so intoxicated by the oils that I loose sight of what people really want? Do I dream this stuff up and then decide how I will impress with the outcome? I want to please you and always intend that. As for me, I am simple, I like a little smoke, a little dirt of you will. That is why I am so attracted to vetiver. It is a Libra thing! We are not always as elegant as you might like us to be.

Here are the players:
vetiver5 ml
lime 30 ml
sandalwood 4 drops
oakmoss 5 ml
vanilla (melted in olive oil)5 ml
bergamot 10 ml
blood orange 10 ml
patchouli 4 drops
frankincense 4 drops
violet absolute 4 drops
cognac absolute 4 drops
juniper 4 drops
water phase: a pumpkin ale by Southern Tier Brewing Company, their motto, BEWITCHED AND BREWED WITH PAGAN SPIRIT (very cool)
make it your self with 13 ounces of organic coconut oil and 36 ounces fruity olive oil and call me in the morning. This batch is right now heating up rather beautifully and hopefully in the morning of the 31st, I shall cut and display for you.
joyfull you
thank you

4 Planets in Scorpio

and that is really the small stuff.
Investigate some of your stuff and try to get to the bottom of things as we approach the shadow of Mercury going retro in November. Money, will be necessary and so will (ha, will) attention to detail.
If you have anything that needs fixed, this is the time to tackle the situation..(The Situation!!)
All in all, we can honestly say that things are certainly moving along and it isn't because political yo yo says we are now poor or some crazy crap.
We are not poor, ok! You want poor, go light your fire for some hot water in rainy season, outside, in some shed which is also shared with the chickens. And you are standing there thinking to your self, "I wish I had a stove inside right about now, I would happily cook the food on it and I wish I had some food to cook beside black beans and rice. A piece of bread and some strawberry jam would be real nice and coffee out of a coffee maker instead of a bag contraption someone concocted"!
Now how did I get myself in this situation? (very long story) How am I going to get back out?
It takes a while to change your mental pictures. What do I know about it!
I do know this; I am the happiest that I have ever been in my life. I have everything I want. Good things are all around me,I receive with out guilt and give happily and generously!

"Get that guilt out of my face!"

Neptune trines Libra

so that is why I have been having such crazy lucid dreams!
Mystic Medusa says best so go read her ideas about what planets in just our solar system effect us.
All I know is my body aches right now and I dream strange dreams every night.
Good thing I look good while doing it. ( kidding) A woman took my arm and said, "wow, that is so soft, what do you use on your arms and legs?"
I use a body oil and take sea buckthorn oil.
My favorite. I feel like my skin is less dry when taking omega 7.
New Chapter has a good one and so does a brand called Sibu..check it out, it might be just the thing for winter when you rarely get any sun on your face and I believe that its composition of caratenoids may offer a glow, or I might be imagining this.

Did you know that elements like gold, silver, uranium are born in stars and in particular the super massive ones? Our sun formed because a huge ball of "plasma" exploded and all the stuff just reformed with what was exploded. It is mind boggling really.
Our perfect medium sized sun isn't going to explode, it will slowly burn itself out out and basically turn in to a super hot diamond just simmering slowly for billions of years. But before that, it will have sucked us in for billions of years...Wow!

I wish that we will have settled our small differences here on Earth billions of years before that happens and we could live on a happy, garden planet again with technology of course:)but without corporations making our food with fish genes. Just sayin'!
Let's change the world with our pocketbooks and then we will see. Lets buy fresh, eat more beans and we can make this Earth be that special part of the diamond where war and klilling is not an issue and we all just love this place.
We should be more like the care bears:)

thank you I hope you have a wonderful day!

Blue Lotus Moon

It was an awesome group I had back when groups were cool in the 90's. The women who attended who so super fantastic and even though we had some drama brewing which made me shut it down so fast that people got mad at me we have kept in touch . That is how I want things still. Real honest women and men whom I have real honest friendships with.
A friend noted then that people seem to get upset when you leave. I know, but if something becomes toxic, what should I do but terminate the pain somehow? That is very Libra really.
We seem innocent and then bamm, you get cold steel between your eyes. We are not as out of control as one might like to fantasize. Seriously, we are more than the few minutes a day we chat with one another, more complex than a few superficial moments one might get to spend with us.
Ah, we Libras..get busy girl, forget all the glory, do it for the best reasons. Service and Joy in Life!

Take the Aries woman right about now, She is so super graceful under pressure that just having her near you brings more confidence and more practical life skills than one would ever imagine.

Scorpio, you are just fine, you know what you can do and have the intelligence to get there. It may mean that you have to change your schedule or adjust your habits.

Sagittarius, anytime I am with you I fall in love again with you and your kind. Not everything has to be a club though.

Leo, change you cologne and see what it attracts. I know having a loss is hard so just the release guilt and have some fun.

Virgo, you are not special enough to punish your self so often. Find something good to do that makes you happy.

Cancer,get some exercise honey:)Take a walk outside and breathe a little fresh air now and again.

Taurus, listen Jupiter is opening doors, you are an artist, everything is glorious!

Gemini, yes life is about changes and you are so awesome that I am in awe of your beauty right about now.

Aquarius, cool , cool, water flowing reviving thoughts in to better ones, always striving for the highest. I love your style honey!

Capricorn, you know I haven't forgotten you. Can I say that you are stunning? Can I say that you are also hard working and discerning and smart and super funny?

Pisces, it is odd how I am surrounded by ya'll. Even if we never talk, it is as if you and I communicate through our minds. Time and space alters for our friendship. I bet others say that to you, others whom you have touched ever so easily and unforgettably.

have a wonderful Sunday, ya'll!

Good Morning Saturday

Going to work after two days off and getting in to that mode.
You know, organizing your thoughts to "how can I exceed your expectations today?"
I have even answered the phone like that twice or thrice actually. (I was in a having fun mode) and yes it was somewhat fake. What do you want from me? I am a Libran!
Anyhow, even though it is fake, it creates a platform where my customer is not only, like, "oh.. well... I want....
I want a pill that will free me from another pill which the doctor gave that makes me so unhappy and depressed that I can't go on.
Or my ocd son, daughter, friend needs something for her eyes, her kidney, his prostrate. Thanks Dr Oz..but why oh why would you ever tell people to take white bean extract or raspberry ketones? Why? :)
It is a long super long list of desires that I would try to satisfy.

I will think, I will reason and I will offer flower essences where there is an opening.
Yesterday I purchased pretty face, larkspur essences and a wild rose from a small company called LFE or Living Flower Essences..omg man!
I can feel the energy upon opening and then two drops in my mouth and I could taste the rose..wild rose that is..The will to live and Joy in life..Do you see how rich I am right now?
Larkspure or delphinium nuttallianum for joyful service and, to me it is beautiful.

Buying shea butter today for my new idea of frothing shea butter with raw organic cacao butter for my Body Frothers..maybe they will be good, maybe they won't.nahhh..

dark matter

it is a web that hold our Universe together and it is very mysterious. It holds all the galaxies together and itself and supports all the matter with in it's magnetic energies.
I say we harness this vibe by understanding ourselves beyond the shackles of only the things that we can see. How about knowing that we are so so small.
How about looking at that invisible stuff and knowing that everything we do at this moment will effect the next one?
How do we harness this vibe?
What do I know? I read other successful people's opinions and make something mine out of it. I like Luise Hay, Mike Dooley, Yogananda, and myself and the god within me.
I would like to master the Flower Essence Repertory and learn more about Homeopathy and of course share it with you somehow.

According to Mike Dooley (leveraging the universe), it is about visualizing but meanwhile physically do an action that will lead to your goals. So as the planets support and twirl around one another and their suns in their galaxies, so do we magnetize objects and people based on what currents we send out.

I guess it is all about gratitude and in the end,happiness.

"I am a happy, rich, successful, soapmking momma who owns her own home"

I thought about this quote all night as I created a manifestation mantra for myself. This is what came of it this morning because all night I pondered and repeated certain words until all the words became comfortable to say in my head.

Make one for yourself and see what you want to say over and over..

My daughter is sick today so I will most likely make some amazing soap or a butter would be nice right about now....and as I look at the oils which would be nice I realize I have a goodly amount of og lime, og lemon, bergamot and blod orange.

coming up on eleneetha at etsy....

Lavender Body Frother ( yes there are those who want a lavender anything on their hand and body)

"Frother" as in the verb from Old English frōfor

to comfort to feed, consolation, joy, refuge, compensation, help, benefit
to have good food, prosper, satiate, enjoy)

"Lemon Lime Frother" A Vegan Body Whip

Lemon Lime Seaweed Soap To go with the body butter..what do you like on your body after a bath?

I am submerged in eternal light

we all are, really. Let our bodies be healthy and our minds be strong and may we always support one another without envy. There is plenty of success for everybody.
I hope that you flourish in what ever endeavor you might be involved in.

Crazy Annie's Viciously Delicious Minestrone Soup

you will need:

8 different kinds of beans like black, navy, peas, barley, lima, pinto, kidney and if you do use barley, be generous because it makes this dish.
Saute 2 onions (med dice), 8 cloves garlic (chopped fine) in olive oil
cayenne pepper
2 bay leaves
chopped parsley and chopped basil (fresh this time)
1 full jar pompadoro tomato puree
water to the top of the pot and bring all this to a boil
add cleaned legumes and grains
add salt to taste
reduce the heat to simmer and cook 2 to 3 hours
add your favorite macaroni and cook 10 more minutes...tasty and low in fat!

*eat with focaccia and juicy Kalamata olives on the side
My dough for the bread is rising as I write this. You can go to any good bakery and get some fine soup eatin' bread:)

Soups bring the family together and bring in good vibes.
It is not about anything other than good food, good family moments and if I may say,this "clan type gathering" is also about protection from harmful negative outside forces. Yes, look at the negative, but only give yourself a few minutes to analyze and please do not dwell on it. Remember any good thought is a thousand times more powerful than a negative one. I should always remember to say thanks and remember how lucky I am right now.
Not everything is about me anyhow.
Eat some soup and go kiss a child.
I am a child of The Universe! Kiss me..ha ha

Full Moon ~under ground time lords

After the last 10 days, I can tell you that I have come out transformed a little and feel a little trashed over it. Like maybe I had to go through a black hole and come out from the other side totally changed. Crushed and then crumbled and finally becoming dusty matter.
Yes, I am more efficient and yes, I understand better everything I set out to do a year ago and now looking back, I can honestly say I gave it my all. I can say that I grieved over trivial projects and learned new words like leadership and margins and merchandising product to its full sale potential. (otherwise known as retail)
One of the things that hold me back at my job are my emotions and not being detached enough at all times and smiling all day even when old matron types dis me like some servant...well, I don't even want to talk about servants because I am a servant all the way..sheesh what a week!
That is right! A servant who people flock to like a light shining and calling, 'all are welcome"

The best thing I have made in a long time is this essential oil blend in soap. Did I write down the recipe so that I can make it again? No! I wish I had a liter of that Oshadi Blend with frankincense, myrrh and Cyprus oils! I only had a bit but I can tell you that it did something to the smokey woodsy cedar and vetiver blend that I had ready for this soap in the first place.
When you finally wash with one of these bars, the one thing that will stand out is the a fine smooth yet gritty texture. That is French White Clay and French Green Clay on top. You will note the smokey vetiver and cedar wood oils but then something kind of sneaks up on you and woa!
What was that, some sticky sweet frankincense? What do I know? Essential oils teach me something, always. This time it is that they are miraculous gifts from exploding stars. Each one a gift from the heavens having been manifested into matter here on Earth and each one having abilities all their own.
Everything is energy. We are alive because of the energy or heat from the Sun. Other suns in our galaxy and other galaxies (billions) are becoming new stars or exploding and spreading all their substance throughout our is real and it is on all day honey!
Thank you for visiting my blog:)

Get back to where you once belonged

Isn't odd how we always go back to where we once had to work something out and review and do it over again, hopefully better than the last time? With me it is always organization.
You can not go wrong if you harness your best intentions and give them a good HA! And then just go with it.
It means embrace what you are doing right now and love it and do the best that you can to make it amazing.
Don't like what you are doing? Do it better and see how it changes.
I tried this recently and I must say, even though I still don't care for some of the tasks, they come out completely grand in the end.
I swear, mostly it is my insecurities (and ego) holding back form happiness more than any other thing.

Good thing there is soap!

This week I made a cedarwood soap with vetiver.
I used my best vetiver from Sunrose Aromatics and my best organic Atlas cedawood along with my beloved Virgina cedawood oil.
It is a delicious woodsy soap bar and perfect for clearing the old and making a path to elegantly placed success.
Cedarwood is ruled by Jupiter and as Jupiter is in Taurus right now I must say It is a perfect time to reflect on what we have, how rich we are and how we should always be kind to one another.
Not that Jup in Taurus isn't over zealous in the end, you can at the very least, expect a nicely designed space with great taste in between that space:)

Cedarwood soap
Che~ Sed

I am using organic coconut oil and olive oil from Crete in this soap base.

juniper OG
one drop nutmeg co2
one drop ylang ylang
one drop cade
It smells so good out of the bottle and I can hardly wait to cut this and show you.

I am also thinking I should make something with the blues. Yarrow, Blue tansy, Blue Cham...

Thank you

Magnolia Rose

Still not Facebooking and my imagination has begun to flourish again. Not that I wasn't creative before. There is something going on in my head and it has nothing to do with how many thumbs up I get from a fascinating link or thought I might have posted.
I will tell you this, I haven't been able to read a book in a long time as my attention span became reduced to no more than 3 minute articles on any given subject.
The internet is good for that. Even now, I put off more important tasks (general cleaning and tidying up) to share my thoughts with you. It is as if the life in this computer and you who share these short memoirs are connected by thought and transcend time and space and here we are. :)
Welcome and hello! Thank you and thank you again for being with me all these years. I have made friends that are worth their weight in Golden star dust as if being dense neutron stars themselves!

I made some soap to celebrate. I made some flower soap.
You must be thinking that I have lost it. Nope. Just clearing my palate and trying something new.
The recipe started out simply enough. Olive oil from Crete and organic coconut oil, cold pressed. I love that stuff. I use Navitas brand and sometimes another one when that one is not in stock. It is my favorite one. Creamy, cold pressed and again dense in its oiliness.
French white clay is next and the oils which speak for themselves like music or a cosmic collision of galaxies would at first swirl around one another and then join in incredible continuous elliptical galaxies. It happens all the time and it is happening now. It is grand!

magnolia oil
drops of cedar
ylang ylang complete
petitgrain mandarin
petitgrain sur fluer

thank you

The Fool

It is about freedom and faith and trusting that you are being taken care of because you have everything you need to make it good right now.

The herb is Panax for detached innocence, protection and motivation.

Follow your heart and embrace whatever comes your way:)

The soap of the day is Pewter and Myrrh.

Herbal Tea of panax ginsing, damiana and ashwaganda should be just the ticket today.

thank you

Vibrational Healing and how the flow of acid effects your day

When we make soap we use sodium hydroxide (PH 13) and that is so alkaline that it has gone the other way and has the ability to burn you like acid while have the capacity to transform anything fat + water into cream. Think about it, calcium is around 11 PH and we take that regularly. Sadly without hardly knowing because if you eat any sort of processed food or fast food, you have consumed more than your fair share of the calcium carbonate. They dump it in everything here in the US, from cereals to juices, you name it! Some studies have linked calcium to hardening of the arteries and stones. Even wild animals like deer will not chew on a "salt lick" (a natural mineral deposit where animals in nutrient-poor ecosystems can obtain essential mineral nutrients)
The more I study, the more I find that your body's PH is essential to good health and the more I study I always come to the conclusion that your emotions produce more or less acid depending on if you are happy, sad, shocked, angry, in love, or sexually aroused.
Each one of those emotions are necessary for the development of new cells and stimulation of the brain.
That said how could we possibly not consider the next step, which is what kind of vibration does each wave of emotion cause on the body?
If our words have power, our thoughts are the creators and our bodies the transporters.

When we think about what we can "take" to decrease acid in our bodies, we should consider homeopathy and flower essences too.
Yes, you can't see it physically doing a big giant healing session, but you will feel better.
It works in secret, behind the scenes.

Right now I am taking Mimilus for fear and Vine for flexibility and leadership abilities.
I gratefully accept life's rewards and acknowledge all my talents. They are many:)

Thank you~

Patchouli Sage Goodness

Every once in while, you get the notion to review yourself by looking at others. For me lately it has been looking at other Libras and how they run their life.
Does Libra not complain, not ever, about how she or he is hurting?
They seem so stout most of the time that people assume they are fine, always. That is because they put up a good front and secretly wish some Capricorn type would take care of everything so they can do what they do best, which is languish.:)


sage co2
2 patchoulis
drops of spike lavender
drops of rosemary verbenon
dalmation sage drops
adding to these
vetiver a drop or two
distilled lime for some acid
a few drops petitgrain
one drop tobacco

Thank you,

Neptunian Vibes

I made soap by hand yesterday because my electrical stirring devise or soap wand as I call it, broke. Not really broken but is on perpetual high speed so foams up my soap batter.
I was able to gain a feel of the transition of the soap becoming soap again. "coming to trace is Zen"
A mutual soaper in Texas said that last night and it is true.
In the old days when I started making soap, I used a big wooden paddle. Stirring and stirring all day and in to nights.
My husband would prompt me for months to get some sort of machine to do it for us. I fought it tooth and nail because I said it would loose the "hand made" aspect of soap making.
Of course I caved in time.
The wand skips through all the waiting to give you creamy put together soap mix and when you are hand stirring it takes like 2 hours sometimes, before your soap "comes to trace".
Making soap is almost like making a good custard, one must aways keep an eye on the cream batter and continue stirring. This is the time you get to involve all the ingredients in the soap and evolve the ones in your head too because soap making is "alone time all the way". It gives me a chance to hone in on Sanskrit mantra words.

Gum~ to remove all obstacles:)

Here is what I am practicing right now;

'Om Trayumbakam Yajamahe Sughandhim Pushti
Vardanam Urvar-ukamiva Bandhanan
Mrityor Muksheeya Mamritat

Peppermint Vanilla Soap

32 ounces olive I have an unfiltered fresh green one from Italy

14 ounces organic extra virgin coconut oil with two vanilla pods finely scraped and chopped infused into oil for three days and the whole jar soaked in hot water 2 times a day to ensure saturation of the vanilla in to the coconut oil

I first blended the water phase with the olive oil and stirred that for one hour. Then, I slowly added the coconut vanilla mixture to the almost soaponafied olive oil.
It took another hour for these three ingredients to embrace one another. They did and when supper thick and creamy, I added the peppermint oil and stirred for 20 minutes.

What amazes me is that each batch has a life of its own. Every oil giving its own spectrum of colorful scent.
What color would you think patchouli would put out?
Like a deep almost black green?
I ground up some dry patchouli and a bit of vanilla pod which I simply sprinkle on the soap before serving.
As I most impatiently wait to cut Peppermint Vanilla Soap, I Can already detect the sweet wafts of vanilla over peppermint's super intense coolness as if reflecting off of sapphire waterfalls.

Thank you

Just settle down and have some patchouli soap

How are you anyhow Are you feeling the Uranus jump start?
I know, it is intense! Try not to rush into anything will you?
Everything is ok and you can have any control you want of any situation. Scorpio is really thriving right now and I must say Sag is really together too. Aries is changing in a big way and the way I see it is, you won't even recognize them in 7 years, so much lovely skill and talent.
Now me, I am Libra! Don't even ask. Things are wonderful and I am overloaded as usual. Working in retail is a challenge to my rustic sensibilities.
Other Librans may note a certain feeling of loneliness set on by Saturn right now but that too will pass. Hopefully we learn something good from all of Saturn's stern overload! Think about all the fun new people Uranus is going to bring and all the juicy new money Jupiter brings:) Plus, Libra, you kind of need to get out of your comfort zone sometimes and if you have made a mistake, move on honey and forgive yourself first. Capricorn too! Have some fun and enjoy your life girl!
Gemini is quietly scheming to actually rule the world by dancing.
Pisces is flying high and shining more than a rare green diamond for a distant watery planet.
Virgo, is it me or are you kind of moody lately!
Remember that moods are like vampire energy and your itinerary isn't the only thing.

Taurus has many surprises in store and Cancer has some too. Try to take things in stride and be happy with what you already are.
Leo, as usual, things are easy for you. I want to be on your team. I love working with Leo people!

making the soap~

patchouli with a bit of this and that

pomegranate seeds with red clay and lemon oil

Lets take the energy that Pisces brings and flourish in our endeavors:) Let'shave compassion ad forgiveness towards others and let's be loving.

the picture

the picture
I don't really know why I posted that picture. Probably because I may be still attached to my youth and fancy myself having resembled this girl.
Frankly the whole image makes me feel a little apprehensive about the big wave that is about to splash her all over the place. She will be fine. She will one day have reckoned with herself and totally have come to understand the universe within her. That family obligations and pride in country shouldn't be a complete guide on how she has run her life.
That social expectations have not always been in her radar, more likely, that she has continued to think and always know herself.
Who is she and more importantly what is she?
I am

The new soaps on the menu will be so fun you are not going to believe it.
I am inspired by two things in March. Astro Vibes and Soapmaking, my two favorite things ever!

~Solar Flare Soap
One~ The Sun and all the huge solar flairs that have spewed out have had me talking and once again my sweet Tonie ( chanted some names of oils and as I want to please her in every way. I love her~ In the good way and not in the attached sort of way. (smiling)
Here is the recipe:
16 ounces organic cold pressed coconut oil
32 ounces extra virgin Greek olive oil from ripe Calamata olives
5 ml organic cinnamon leaf
15ml peppermint oil
30 ml blood orange oil
red swirls or vibrant red made with sweet paprika and a wee bit of red clay

Mirror of Isis Black Soap with Myrrh and Rose
Shea Butter based
16 ounces shea butter
16 ounces extra virgin Greek Calamata olive oil
16 ounces organic coconut oil
activated charcoal
organic propolis
pure essential oils

Nighty Night Soap
roman chamomile
90% organic olive oil
organic coconut oil

As we approach the dark moon, let's ponder on the seeds we are now planting. We know it is good, and we know we have worked hard. We have shed tears and fears and now we are washed free of old constraints. We have no enemy, we are friend to all, we are charming and magnetic.

the energy is all water
(sun, mercury, mars, uranus, chiron all in Pisces)
New Moon on Friday
I like this:)

Have a beautiful sunny day;)
