my song in my head

sung to the tune of some REM song:)

Oh mighty Isis, I'll call on you today.
Show me what needs done
show me the best way
show me to dare
to learn
to care
about
my actions
my thoughts and how
holding resentment and anger
makes my jaw hurt
and knowing this I release all worries I am safe
om shanti shanti shanti..iiiii

a quote


A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Most people think that shadows follow, precede, or surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

The Fat

Let's get down to the nitty gritty shall we?
I am not a fan of processed creams. In fact I rarely use anything at my store from a store shelf anywhere on my skin besides the Mineral Fusion make up which I love. Even then  get hives if I apply too much mineral on my face. I do love to put on blush and bronzer from Mineral Fusion and Pure Skin..I like the sparkles in their make up.
I look like a horse, I am Sag Rising..it is cool, Libra Sag rising..I think when Jupiter enters Gemini, it'll be a very cool time for Sagittarius folk..:)

My point being that I rarely eat out for the same reasons and prefer to make food at my home rather than drive to some place..I am really lazy like that:)

So that is why is is all about the fat. This is my actual  point.... I will read an ingredient list the size of my foot (10) and take a whiff and then put it down.
I love to  show some women how they can use a beautiful  balm and hydrosols to make their skin really soft and supple.
Listen all that stuff is processed. Skin care should be simple and you need  never  absorb freeking preservatives and soy extracts and  benzoates..
If you put a waxy surface made of stearate and glycerin on your skin for your essential fatty acids to repair anything will be more work. You might not want to do that to your self.
Essential fatty acids are what make all the repairs in and out of your body. You cannot make them on your own. That is why it is so important to choose the best ones. Why not? Plus, your skin has to breathe. It is like a lung on the outside and coincidentally,  both of those organs relate to Kidney Lung Meridian..

 It is lovely really..

It is all about the fat!

Fats like,
evening primrose
pumpkin oil
avocado oil
olive~ the best one you can afford
raspberry seed
blackberry seed
frankincense
hemp
macadamia
argan
baobab
yangou
marula
there are more, each one offering a special blend of essential fatty acids unique to itself.
All of these nuts and seeds are considered "super foods" nowadays because scientists are finding out more and more information about micro nutrients in food. These super small particles seem to be quite important for health and have shown themselves to be extraordinary in many ways. Your skin being a major consumer of such matter to be used as protection from radiation and pollution in the air one breathes..again Kidney Lung:)

have a good day, I am off to be charming and magnetic~

hawthorn

Hawthorn (crataegus oxycantha) is a common deciduous tree or shrub growing primarily in North America.
It is one of my favorite supplements of all time.
It is pleasant tasting tart and mildly astringent and best thing ever, great for your heart.
You can buy Hawthorn Tea at any store (good store, not 711) and enjoy the benefits of hawthorn every day.
Hawthorn is loaded with flavonoids and proantocyanidins
(all you need to know that is these little helpers are full of good stuff to help you from radiation and other toxic substances in the air you breathe.
Hawthorn starts out as a shrub and grows for years and years in to a tree. Furthermore, the reason why it looks like it grows  little apples..well that is  it because they are in the same family Rosaceae. It is all apples and roses babe!
How lovely, right?
Have a gorgeous day:)

things that go with cistus

Labdanum notes:
blend that comes to mind
Labdanum (cistus)
Rosewood
Champa
Clove
Cinnamon bark
Or
labdanum
fir
frank
oakmoss
a drop Rose
patchouli

they both sound good to me...

thank you to White Lotus Aromatics and Sunrose Aromatics for awesome  ideas and awesome oils!

labdanum coming in to focus

Someone wants labdanum patchouli with ambergris soap and I am making it again.
Remember Intention Soap?
I liked it. Something about patchouli and labdanum can be hypnotic.
This time , this soap, will hopefully offer the same intentions as before such as knowing that our happiness and success is our divine right. You love yourself therefore only the best things manifest within and without:)
That is why you learn to cherish each moment I suppose.
I am looking forward to this one. I will use Sunrose Aromatics's labdanum goo, I will...
I am also thinking a butter to go with this soap, wouldn't that  be nice now...

Rose Geranium Vanilla Shea Soap Special

I made new lavender soap so I decided to experiment a little bit and take some soap base and mix in organic rose geranium and a few thick pasty drops of vanilla co2 for a small 6 bar batch.
I don't know why I added the vanilla but it is oddly sweet and powdery now.
It smells like a rosy garden exploding with thick sweetness and finishing with a subtle lavender flow..
(I isn't easy describing scent but since I am a simple woman I will state what I am getting)
See for your self, this soap is on special as of today:)
$5.00 each
Otherwise today.... we will put a smile on our faces and be brilliant! That is our best thing:)
Thank you.
Happy New Moon!

people moving in

people moving out (sung to the tune from Temptations))


this religion
that religion
Jews
Jews in Hollywood
Jews in banking
that Norwegian guy who hates Muslims
because of Jews probably!
Hey dude, Jesus was a Jew, ok! He taught love and forgiveness not some facking hate rampages.WTFak??
( I realize that I have that guy mixed with some other Hollywood guy who hates Jews not Muslims)
I am not understanding why we should still be referring to races of people instead of "us" the human species..right?
Words have power..that is why I never use the term "Anti-Semitic"
Why? It gives it strength...that is why..so you have that energy all the time. Say it long enough it becomes an obsession and then  social  martyrdom depending what side you are on. The phrase is the same either way.
Religion is so weird like that. So intense that we do not talk about it much. Any questions that might arise such as; "what do you mean she was still a virgin before and after, Jesus had a brother?!"
Or, "How come Israel is God's chosen people, that would be like a bad parent only loving one son or daughter and throwing everyone else out, these type of questions would always bring a challenge to anyone, not me and you, others..
My mother will say to me, "Don't talk like that."
I  want the facts, not some made up fear tactics..


Don't blame god for abandoning you, your words are you. You can color them in any way you like.

 It is true!

Think about it, how have we evolved in one and a half million years?
Really besides the paved roads and Internet, I would say that now, we have learned the usage of minerals to make better and better weapons to guard our turf which equals money and riches therein..

What do I know? I feel really safe right now. My kids are nice, all of them and all of them with their own ideas... no guns in this house, no mind control fears...
My riches are inside my mind. I disperse them at will.
 I am fully aware of my behaviors and my choices which lead to the next wave of goodness
thank you~
have a good day and think kind thoughts, everything else will fall into to the right spots:):):)

Earth is our mother which was created by the remains of a giant super star explosion during millions of years and our Earth is at its most glorious place in time right now..why worry about turf and skin color?
This is the best time on our planet forever:)
wow
It just makes you want to  love everybody more now, doesn't it?

Morels

In Michigan you can find morels if you are lucky. This is the season and now I know why, damp, cool nights and warm days... I have gone hunting for them for years and have actually only encountered one in my whole life. Until now that is! The whole North West corner of my yard has what appears to be.... Morels thriving all over the place Under a very mossy section of my place.
I am afraid to eat them. You know why.
Whole families  have been known to die because of one wild mushroom meal..
Well I think they are Morels because they look exactly like the pictures..I will have them tested  somehow.
It is very special to me to have found such a treasure in my new yard. I planted the sassafras and the black cherry trees in their general direction.
I believe
I believe
I believe
(Mystic Medusa wrote about it in her blog..very cool reminder! )
I am going to remind myself everyday in this way.

I believe I am happy
I believe I am rich
I believe I am loved

I planted the Black Walnut tree first for stability and protection from parasites and this applies to the whole cosmic aura around my family and home just growing there and then also to gift me with its glorious juices.
Walnut is all about protecting the soul
bringing in abundant wealth and protection through a stronghold of
psychic barriers
I chose the North East Direction for Black Walnut

After I put the cherry tree in is when I saw the first one. And then it is as if my eyes opened and I could see as many Morels as there are..which are so many just happily growing there under a flowering cherry tree.
wow:)

I made soap this morn, not last night. It is super awesome right now and my hands reek of "old whore" and "super fine patchouli" soap..I am all out of labdanum as I melted all I had  for the old whore and I also poured in all my aged vetiver in the soap base. It is a really good day, right!
I'll do the blood orange tomorrow:)
It may just be a way in which I am making my new house my super fine home now..dang man!

thank you

Friday and it's my way till payday

and it is actually pay day..he he
We will go to the market and we will eat salad sandwiches, they are so good..


Salad Sandwich
get your self a big bowl and fill it up with all the greens you love.
We love Romaine and Red Leaf made extra crispy..( you make lettuce crispy by washing it and then wrapping it in a cotton towel and putting it in the veggies drawer in your fridge~it has to be non fabric softened, that is an important step.
One big sweet organic onion, sliced any way you like
One big tomato which is beautiful and not some creepy four pack which is some sort of pink color, but plump, red, juicy and smells of sun shine..sliced any way you like
cukes
broccoli
and any other veggie you can clean and chop up.
Ciabatta Rolls with the inside mostly taken out so you have a nice firm shell which soaks up the dressing beautifully~I usually eat that wile stuffing my sandwich:)
Your favorite dressing
(lately I have been digging Garlic Expressions, but I will use a balsamic or a Cesar no problem:)))

Best Dressing  Anastasia
evoo 3/4 cup
wine vinegar 1/4 cup
garlic galore 3 or 4 cloves chopped
og oregano a pinch or so
Celtic salt 1/2 teaspoon
fresh cracked pepper
og basil a pinch
add feta or
parm
or even chopped anchovies (which I have never done because my kids won't eat them)
you can add chopped olives too if you like
shake or blend


Eat it..it is so good for a fast lunch which is not loaded with processed  omega 6's from processed foods which equals to the worst thing for you!
Take charge  of what you consume and you will never need raspberry ketones unless you eat an actual raspberry. You will look amazing for you age and size. You will love every part of your body, even the scars which are like valor wounds.
You will look at your face and be happy with what you see..
and all because you ate some greens:)

Tonight, I am making some Blood Orange Vanilla Soap
I hope it is good:)
Thank you:)

new soap ideas

It is time to make soap at the new place.
I am ready, the equipment is spread out and easily accessible so all I have to do is make.
Lavender Soap, yes! 
Blood Orange Vanilla sounds good:)
What about something new?
I haven't a clue.
My juices are flowing and still no amazing ideas coming out.
Maybe it is because Mars is retro and Mercury just now when direct, the big move, the new job.
I do not know.
I know that I won't just throw anything together right now. I will plan carefully and when it all comes together, we'll have some nice soap. Something new even. Is there anything really that is new in blending for soap scent?
I have had a desire for rose geranium and lime together, but you know what? No one buys that sort of blend from me. I wonder why...

I want something smokey with bergamot..Lady Gray")
I want as always some nice frankincense soap in my shower, a must for Libra and all other signs.
I want more rose otto as I can't seem to get enough, it makes me happy and content rose otto does.
Divination Soap?
Frankincense Rose Soap and cream in a little set which won't cost a fortune?
Ok, let's see what I conjure up.
Have a glorious day!

The Pluto Power

You can harness it and submit to it churning of everything gooey and uncomfortable and you can prosper.
Pluto is about prosperity and rewards and outcomes of yearnings even you yourself weren't aware of.

Pluto is about tearing down everything you believe and letting old thought patterns go. Sometimes with Pluto, they are torn away from you even when you didn't want them to be.
We get attached to pain and anguish. It is like drug always needing more and more nurturing so that you can continue releasing the chemicals which make you feel need, sexual desire, greed for power, stubbornness and pain from loss..
All Pluto stuff. Death too.
Death of an old worn out way. Death and rebirth is all Pluto all day...
Does it hurt a bit, yes, but you like a little pain, I  know you do.

There is a fear factor too. Look at what you are dealing with head on, honey!
There is no courage without fear..they  say..

Look at the house Pluto is in and there is where you will review your attachments, your painful secrets and worries and where you will overcome each one like a mythical warrior on the side of truth, not what some priest said 1000 years ago...these guys were running the world back then, they would have said anything to support their causes and  money making fear tactics of who God loves..
he he
all Pluto stuff indeed:):)

this is still a time to clean up
organize your stuff
and make your home brighter, starting with your gracious attitude:)

I am almost at full working capacity..really!
Thank you,
Anastasia

Libra Languishness

Libra Full Moon
How have you lit the night like this?
Could it be that you were bigger than I have ever seen you to be?
Lighting the night, having captured the Sun's radiance with such ease and grace?
Libra Full Moon, you make my day!
:)

Just settle down and have some patchouli soap

made with shea butter and made with gorgeous olive oil which is fruity and delicious.

 Anastasia'a Super Fine Patchouli Soap Batch #8 million 800 and 88

 16 ounces shea butter (sunrose aromatics)
 32 ounces fine unfiltered extra virgin olive oil (Canteros's Italiano Market, Livonia Michigan)
 32 ounces extra virgin organic cold pressed coconut oil
8 ounces fine oil of patchouli, nicely aged and very smooth:)
 2 ml frankincense co2 (for the blessing)

 yumm, yumm you! follow up with a fine anointing balm or oil after a shower with this and I bet you will smell good all day and awesome people will be drawn to you without knowing, why... I always use some neroli and smokey vetiver following a good patchouli bath, but you can do what you like. Vanilla goes real nice with this soap. Everything matters.

piles of clothing I still do not need and piles of boxes that still need unpacking, but we slept very well here last night. It feels like home now more that last week.

One thing at a time and for now I must clean something else.
Have a wonderful day and expect a divine miracle and transition being over..now on to new beginnings and new learning opportunities. Uranus in Aries is coming on strong and people are on the move. New job, new home, new lovers..
