Just around the corner

traditions of the new year are awesome..
lets think clear, transparent, kind and furiously in love with kindness!
lets infuse our hands with regenerating energy and we pay that forward to the next guy
that means we ourselves have enough too
we are not marters, that is the old way to think
the new way is,
"all for us"

There is no doubt, that you have to be at the right place at the right time, but what if you make that place in time, years before..your higher mind already prepped you for this moment??
I think so!
And certainly your wouldn't cheat yourself by doing bad things to yourself!
That is crazy right?

If ever there was a time to think about what the planets are doing, it'll be now. We have a whole lot of electric magnetic and otherwise mythological energy going on.

Pluto in Capricorn
Uranus in Aries
Mars in Libra

Mars Pluto, is all about health, well being and cleaning
Mars Uranus is about steel, get a new knife, adventure, leading
emotional
hurtful
name calling fighting
You have Pluto in Capricorn, Pluto will not have this  and so, everyone is subdued once again..mars in Libra can be militant..so watch it!
Libra /Capricorn is good for understanding authority and what  it needs to be fed
Mars/Pluto is always a shaker upper, sometimes violent..thank goodness Libra, is here to sort of sort through it and say the truth..
lesson here for all of us,
don't be an ass hole just because you can
people remember that
I forgive you
I always will
but muggles
no

For now though, the new moon.. is to remember how smart we've become. we can and must look at ourselves and be the best we can be. Here is the secret, you do not have to tell everyone. the more discipline you show in that respect, the easier it'll be for you in the end. It is the hardest thing to not have to justify yourself! It is human, to allow for comrades to become intimate and allow for justification of behaviors..
Uranus in Aries brings skill, new technologies, each of us being at the beginning of a project, learning, growing, and having become awesome! I hope that we will embrace our lives as if they were a treasure..in space, yo..gooooolllldddd......

Capricorn Heavens

Time to shine a light on you beautiful! I have to tell you that you are awesome for sure and that I like you very much and if you were near me right now I  would grab your face you creature of brilliant luminous light!
I like your words too and I like you. Are you so powerful right now?
Do you have a seriously heavy vibe going where nothing is going to stop your reality, the way you forged your path so deeply in to the soft pillowy hills and valleys, in your minds deep crevasses and spongy hidden places, like caves where hidden treasure lies, things you had put away for a surprise later. Your higher mind already protecting and guiding you for your future..
Yes, there may be burdens now, things only  you can fix. you are the one we lean on for the facts and a brisk push forward. no mercy!
Your hidden tail, quickly smacking away debris with one flick!
I like you!

muggles and their ways

look, I just do not see the point of spending money raspberry vanilla scented bath products, even if they are phalate free
i think it is interesting that we can scream about gmo this and organic that and then go ahead and say that synthetic fragrances are ok. as long as they are organic or some crap thing..
See how we are, humans!

The thing is, most people do want the best things. But some just want liquid soap. I want to change habbits of humans to apreciate good fats on their skin!! Does that make me a zealot? Should I be watching dactah ahhz?
you have to say it that way..he has a type, he does. ususally an overweight woman worrying about 60% of some crap that isn't going to work!
I look at it this way, 100 month on me..I will need the basics...
shea butter
jojoba oil
argan
rose hydro
silly diet pill which is dried fruit and says 60%?? no..that cuts in to my jojoba habit, plus now it is winter, time for sesame oil..love it!
have a wonderful day and take some elderberry please, there is a nasty little critter going around reaking havic!

last years days and nights

In 2013,
I woke up every day and I thought how lovely it would be
to mix some lemon and some sweet ass neroli
To have and work with the best olive oils ever..brags unfilltered organic..amazing..
I made time lord and old whore this year and I made labdanum black spruce and fir remember that one?
I made some potions, the pluto one kicks ass!
I made some calendulla infusions and I made some herbal tinctures for myself and friends, I made some new friends I have never met:)
I haven't any enemies I am a friend to all, I know that..

I worked:)

I made more old whore and I made her perfume, that one time I know I put too much smoke in there and it may have freaked some one out..they never said anything so I won't worry..
about that..like a dab, no more..
I made some bread now and again and made soap with a friend for the first time ever..
You know I practice alone.
I made dirt, organic dirt
I have a ton of seeds of tall calendulas for next year
The little critters got in my sunflower seed stash and ate the whole thing man! I kicked them out!
haha one of my boys helped me out with that..sons yo, they do for momma!
wow!
I have wormwood and lavender out there, i will put more out next year. The grapes and apple trees and apricot and linden too.
I feel like I am a proper crone ~ crone phase it is my sweetie I say to me.
I know things, I do not know how I know, it must be my smart wonderful family and friends then because things come out of me..
I am seeing that we are meant to be here, we've always meant to be here
we are a result of some great force..I mean seriously who can explain the big bang without asking, "where  did that concentrated energy which is still expanding come come?"
Astrophysicists now  think it happens all the time and that our universe is one of many..can we even imagine this?
Why not then? It so happens that it wasn't even one thousand years ago humans thought the world was flat!
But back to me and my best things ever last year, :):)
I am smarter this year, way way smarter..and as a woman of high minded knowledge, fortitude, I will accept my boons for those things.
What if next year I get in to a couple more shops, hey?
I don't know..fear..worry... what if my labels or my words..the picture is wrong..whah!!
The label is fine. It is clean and easily unwrapped. I like the way I fold the paper. I adore to do this!
It  is my pleasure to fold each corner and I know do this well.
So I look at 2014 brightly from here. I am standing on  a far away hill at the moment..looking at  my bright  future year..my kundalini thoughts burning with reasons to explore, expand and skillfully present herself through my hands..
I am looking at valleys where flowers explode each spring and some high mountains way out there too, some must be climbed if your are goat or something..i am a goat..with steel mind..my sword is  always polished and always ready to do what is it  made for..truth..the sword is always truth! that is why air signs can't  lie, ha!
we shall rest at the moment, my libra sword and I..

lets do some cool astro thoughts next..and see what we can conjure up for you too:)

too much talk about religion and my three best things

alright, I will shut up about jesus!!
I can't help it..it is everywhere, this lie that expects too much of all of us! I mean it is ridiculous, really, jesus walking on water..perhaps a saying of the day may have been  like, "he's so smooth, that it's like  he  can walk on water.."
or something..lol

Today I worked after a three day rest and the flu and I made it and all is well.
I have just  bathed with neroli and frankincense and sea salt to shed my days worries and fears.
I helped someone deeply and thoroughly. I felt the connection and I worked on  her hands.
the dummy!
She got a chemical burn from a tanning salon she had been going to! They told her at another health store that she was having a reaction from too much die off from the  kefer she had been drinking! I said, " no, sweetie, that there is chemical burn all day from the sanitizer they spray on the light bed thing..and then you fried it into your flesh" I did not over react..but inside I felt dreary for her! You do not get a rash n your nipples from too much fermented milk, no!
I sprayed rose hydrosol on her (evan healy) and then put on a gentle bee balm with propolis..her skin, so dry and wrecked became plump again but still red and hurt! She told me.  "you are really something, really something." I liked it:) when she said that.
I hope she doesn't go back to those things again!




"do you know why they gave frankincense to jesus"

a beloved christian family member asked me on christmas..
"Because it was medicine back then as it is now?"
"No"
"Why then, my sweetie?"
"because they would embalm king's body's with it back in the day." "It was only meant for kings"
I was waiting for him to start spewing out about how Jesus was a king..he didn't..
In England they sodomised a king for being gay and yes he may have been a total ass hole but they did it because , well, they were still barbaric like we are still barbaric about orcas in captivity at sea world..no they did it because they said Jesus must have been a king who hates gays and they killed him brutally..It was one of the Edwards! Brutal fuks!
I tell my mom and no one else in the angelopoulos family,  that it isn't like that. If only people would  ponder on his teachings.  I know that we expect something from. god. We all do.
What do we really expect from him, or Buddha, or yogananda or sri yukteswar..
Why are we drawn to gurus who have powers to cleanse us of our sorrow? Because we have been told that the church, jesus, god, even gandhi, listen and helps us! If that is so, they would all have shown up sometimes..many times while humans killed and pillaged the earth..listen, when all the trees are gone and the fish die..that is bad!
Also intelligent must mean, mean! Predators..can you imagine how some intelligent life may have formed on other earths? I somehow do not think they would welcome new arrivals pleasantly!


You are literally stardust, made of phosphorus, magnesium, carbon and you are a higher thinking life form. Isn't that enough? Now you want god to save you from evil too?
 I mean think about that..when a huge star goes super nova and spews out dust of you all over so much space, your brain, higher that it may be, your brain, has to make numbers and letters to show the distance involved!
Are we more special? Was Jesus on every planet like ours, suffering for sins?
Trillions of them just in this Galaxy? Us being one of the trillions?
I think next year will show us many things about  other  planets in our neighborhood..
Voyager is out of our solar system and traveling out in the milky way and taking pictures.
Soon we will send out an intelligent computer to explore  earth like planets..our children get to enjoy the fruits of that labor..
I think then, we will see that these myths are just stories, like Zues, like Mythra, like Jesus..nothing  actually happened the way  they say. they make shit up all the time..is all I am saying..and how come humans kill all the guys who tell us to do things the right way..
love
forgive
accept
heal
forgive

While Uranus is in Aries, we will as a human race start to think about what is right. Corporations that pollute the earth must be dissolved! Think about how much garbage we put in our water, our waste, our chemical cleaners or grass fertilizers..Pluto involved will tear us down, make us cry, rip  us apart, weaken us and make us face in anyhow!
I know the planets are are a part of me. My star system and yours..which formed over 5 billion years ago, then it exploded and then made our sun and our sun made us, our planets..we are all a family each planet having become a apart of us..yes i would make archetypes about that! That is why astrology is so much fun, hey!
:) eeii..snow makes me talk like from the north, eeii:)

better to enjoy the season

than to not
what are you an angry atheist (godless))) vegan? lol :)
 I guess when you add "anger"  to anything, it goes sour!
You walk in a room where people are jingling and must point out about how it isn't real  and that the man has fooled you the whole time?
Course not! You find yourself bouncing along..
Later in a more intimate setting you could point out that it is all silly nonsense..but is it? The whole planet is about to move on, through the year, the century, with time!
In Greece in the olden days as a child in a village no bigger than downtown Livonia, we had feasts on christmas. We had to go to church and we ate cookies and ate all sorts of good bread and cheese my mom and yia yia would have made. The women of my village would take pride in their dough. My mom does this fermented chick pea bread in winter that is a tradition of Proti, Florinis, Greece..
They also seem to cook like Escoffier, making brown sauce like you've never had! I learned that from my mom. I can turn flour into an art in a gravy..
We would make a butter sweet dough and put apricot and prune inside and bake that.
Rugala..so good with a  cream cheese dough..I will make that today.
They had lard and duck fat just like the French did which shows that we are not so different..Europeans!

The cook house was comfy and my yia yias domain. I helped her make dough on a big wooden table. I am sure it is gone now, but lately, I think about it and  can remember details. Like where the water came in from the spring and where she had lined up clay water vessels filled with drinking water which she said we were to drink that and not to drink  what comes from the faucet..my younger aunts, fanitsa, niki and zoe would fetch water from a nearby spring..
My yia yia would cook duck now and again. I have never had the likes of which, to this day.
 My childhood memory of this is that lovely..she was a master at plucking feathers, her hands deftly working and her mind in tune with her task,,I am sure she had never read a book (in fact she learned to read when I did in grade school) She really didn't think like we do today or if she understood the moon or why the sun, or who am I..she just didn't think about this. She did as she was told by her priest father and her priest grandfather before him.  She would have not really cared at all as there was so much to be done before the sun went down and we woul all came in and warmed by the fire and she would on the coldest nights, when the men came in from tending to animals and such, she would mix whiskey with honey and heat it until it started fire and she would pour shots for all to drink, We all got some. It was hot and sweet and made your whole body warm and you knew you were safe. Where a sprinkle of cinnamon was an amazing experience and always special. I was a pig for cinnamon on rice pudding. Now, I only like cinnamon in winter and really not so much when it is hot outside..
But, honey, it's cold outside!






Rugala
you can choose any filling you like, i will go apricot and prune and maybe a few few chocolae filled ones:)


  • Dough:
  • 8 ounces (2 sticks) softened unsalted butter
  • 1 (8-ounce) softened cream cheese
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

pan caking

I am teaching my young grand son, sword fighting:)
He is a video expert like his dad and always does these moves that aren't real but look great in animation..
'That is it, boy!"
"What, mom?' He calls me, "mom 2".
"Those moves don't work, boy, now it is time you learn the basic 5!"
 He is good and already gets bored because the moves aren't flashy enough..no, I keep at him, I swat, I round house him and I slice him, he wants to get me but unless he gets the technique, he cannot.."common, one, two, three, four, five.."
I feel like we could get in to a rhythm and practice discipline! . Mars in Libra! I am a Libran!
So I made these swords with packing material and tape. We already killed one so today, I'll make another better one with colored duct tape, he'll love that!
"You lack discipline, young one"
"No, I don't lack discipline"
"let's have pan cakes!"
:)

twearking

So funny!
Would you try it? I would have in my teens. I am sure of it. I want to try it now, but my body won't move that fast (for too long) hahahaaaa
twearking!
For years now, I have only listened to Sanskrit chants and it has been good..I have learned many Sanskrit mantras and feel like I could join in if there were a group chanting..but now, I have teens, we listen to their music, JZ and Eminem..The other day, I recited a song to my girl and she was shocked and a little embarrassed..so cute!
"I like that young man, Eminem,  he makes nice poetry!"
"Mom, he is forty now, really?"



Happy Solstice!
It has rained for two days here and it is cold and wet. Good day for soup and a nice show.
 No stressing about money and having stuff..or not having the right stuff..it is what you do all year that counts  everyday, the things you say
the thoughts you weave
your movements and voice you conceive
your one man show
your heart
is it icy or does it glow with fervent fire
open
for truth
loyalty
forgiveness
wisdom to see the right way
taking it day by day

Happy Yule to you and happy new year and happy christmass too

Everyone is here on earth safe for the most part if you don't think too much about it.
I for one would like us all to all consider our lives and where we can fix or get better at something.
I mean for me, it would be nice to come home and not greet like 20 people who came over..yes, they are all sweet and yesterday, I walk in and I was told to hush because "someone" is napping..lol
'who the fac is napping in my house baby"
one of my boys is "the soother"
"now mom..."
I noticed the person napping isn't here this morn..I mean I  feel bad when I say the truth too loudly..I have a voice. I want everyone to love me so I put up with a whole lot. :) and something real and sword like  just comes out of me!
"napping"

I feel so good though.
Even in this small event I had to pursue as a parent.
There are many things I can improve on this next season. One thing I can do right now is intend my desires, my plans, my prep, my awesome soaps.. and become a woman of my word and with out fear..and always strive to do my best with skill and excellence...:)

For example, at work, I am now in a position to work in areas I had been avoiding. like it or not, I am an introvert.
I am not really a merchandiser as much as I want people to want  to look at my displays. In a business when people come in knowing what they want, I have to tell you that it take art to take them away from their goal for them to invest a minute on a scarf or a cup..I aim to make it  my best thing in 2014..I think everything we touch has energy and when we touch it and smile or something it makes it more attractive to people.and we do have amazing scarves at my store!


You know me, a libra, who one of her best things is memory..what a freak I am and since I have lived a long time, I remember weird things and then knowing smart people who teach me, like my friend agnishka, or my beloved Tonie and now some of my new ladies like barbara, lisa, elisa and jeez so many new amazing creative, faqing smart people..connie, debi my val, my steven my stephan my robbie my sweet sweet emilies my jason my sarah my boy tommy and my sweet one noodle boy alex and my jonny and john and my beloved george and papapu and yia yia and michelle and the other scorpio gal evoo:)the new super aquarians rolling in like nick and that girl dora and even that actor dude too.omg my mystic and liz green..who's insights in to the phyche and myth is astounding to me!


My life is nice and yours is too.  We have information at our finger tips and we have a nice warm house in which to take comfort in and yes, there are areas in which we will be electrified, mesmerized, hypnotized and transfixed..
Uranus in Aries opposite Mars in Libra..oye!!
Maybe we should think about that for a minute.                                                                                           .
You are special and you are not special enough may be a theme!
Libra's desire to please highlighted by Mars and Uranus here  to shake things up where it is never satisfying enough in Aries..for everyone, not just Aries..
I think Aries people maybe the ones we should look at here, sure but the rest of us,  because of our  need to feel loved and this  seeming  to be the hardest to get or give love because  there is an  unfulfilled vibe somehow creating barriers..
wait!!
it isn't real!
You may be nurturing sadness because it is so dark and dreary and your brain is making you think things..and endings make us sad somehow. one day closer to death and all that stuff we really have no control over.
Remember, that everything is what it is and you are in control of your day.

thank you for being my friend:)











Friday, December 20, 2013

on the 12 days of saturnalia of which this is day 3

There has been some  dialog at at work about Christmas songs and how we must play them..I haven't said anything one way or another because I love all music.. "Ayia Nighta","oh Christmas Tree", they are all fun happy little tunes...
Of course, we shouldn't , they are dated and hurt people's feelings..we know that Mary was not really a virgin and it is myth, right? As a matter of fact, according to orthodox church teachings, she had more children after Jesus and yet in the Roman Catholic Creed, it states that she was and remained a virgin.
Church goers recite that every Sunday like good little soldiers in line or else. They even honor their Roman king Pontius Pilot for doing the deed in the end..
Oops..we are speaking about his birth, Jesus and silent night..he wasn't born during exactly on this day..we do not have a day..we just want to make one so that we can celebrate the most powerful and sacred night on earth together all at once.... that there is silent inght
holy night
all is calm
nia nia nia

Maybe Mary,  she had  leave town because they would likely have stoned her..they still do in some of those regions on earth.
Questions I would ask if I were Mary's momma..
"An angel made you pregnant? Oh, Joseph and you are just friends, I don't think so! That guy is 30 years older than you, why is he sniffing around here all the time? Mary!!!
Mary's mom may have said things like,
Cool, you can go over his house and milk his goats and if he wants to marry you, you should, because that guy is gorgeous, and he doesn't smell too  bad...how many goats has he got now?"

The Romans killed Jesus and then continued to do the same to  many others  for many years after Jesus, and then converted their own Saturnalia in to Christmas, also noted are the pagan sabots of Yule where we honor the Sun on The Longest night of the year..
So that all the people could still celebrate...I think, as I look back on my church teachings, it was Peter and the early dudes that spread the word about enlightenment through love and concentration on goodness, forgiveness, kindness, laughter, all  the right reason for happiness.they would sneak  in caves and such, because the Romans would kill them too. It wasn't The Jews that were after them, it was the Roman soldiers.
As I see it, the evolution of man is still so early and in two thousand years or so we've come a long way from killing each  other for not agreeing with each other...

Love truth, but pardon error. -Voltaire, philosopher and writer (1694-1778) 

Paul himself was a Roman soldier for a while until he saw the light. These stories after  thousands years have changed so much that now Jesus is white and Santa's  brown..and it is still fun. I like the snow and my kids all coming home and everyone eating a nice meal..I love that:)
Why would God want you to mutilate your baby for him? That is just not right!
but as usual I digress..
don't get me wrong, I love Christmas because the natural chemicals in my  brain anticipate something wonderful when the sun starts to show again..
I guess that makes me a Sun worshiper!
Our Star, The Sun made us, maybe that burning star has more awareness of something divine than I do..that is for sure one way to see god.
So why do we pretend so much about Christ? Why do we note when a president bows in the enemies temple? A high thinker bows before entering any ones home. I mean, you do not make a show of it like a peacock, but yes a light bow is a show of honor.
Of course he would bow, we bow to the stone..yogananda said to honor the most simple things like a sacred rock which millions had energized  with their meditations because everything is electricity/magnetism and made by our star, our perfect medium sized burning life giver!
I am thankful that I exist. I exist because of that one thing right there and when was that made? When another star bigger and hotter exploded and from that debris, I am here..
It is big! I know!
:)

But speaking of Yogananda,
he started an ashram in California, and he trained certain flowers his techniques on meditation and finding peace with self realization and that if you close your eyes and focus, you will see god.
His teaching still remain as sacred pathways to being a yogi..After he died and they made a big deal about his body not rotting..which is cool or not, I am not sure, I mean he was still dead in there, how long are you going to keep that meat suit around? After he passed, it wasn't the same. The local temple here in Detroit, changed. and  one disciple started his own thing and then they fought over who had the legal right to teach Krya yoga.. the answer is, everyone! You do not own god, shut up! lol I am gonna  go do Krya right now!

Yogananda was awesome and I suppose there was a time, I may have visited the ashram in Encinitas and I know the current yogini running the place is very saintly and sweet..it feels good to sit next to someone who meditates and sings high vibration chants all day..om triayam bacum yaja ma he..

taking care of business

I will prepare one of my bigger orders today and make some creams and drive kids to their thingies.
It is a mommas life..I have been training my my mind to like certain chores of motherhood in ways that I think are working..
one being, I say that I like washing dishes, my dishes and I love washing clothes and folding, I mean this is my home, of course I'll tidy up.
I wonder what they will do when on their own. I wonder if their bath would be as clean as mine..:)
Their bed, just so comfy like mine..I like comfort over style around here but my tree is still crocked!
:):)
look, I couldn't find a stand and so I got some rocks and a pot and now the tree is stuck in there and there it stays!
I suppose I could crawl under there and set some stones on the other side..
I am making creams today though so I will get to prep  for that.

In the old times when man still hadn't conjured up human images of God he saw that in November and most of December, the Sun was lost to him and then as the nights grew longer and longer and he  had to wonder if this is the end for him too, and then there, on the 21st, The Sun (born) flickering once again over that familiar horizon..
Yule 2013
Beautiful Capricornian Yule 2013
Plutonian in nature
Uranian
wake up call
know who you really are
shocking events which bring you back to your path~back on track
having the tools to make it good make your words last



And my point if any on this cold Michigan morn, is that mommas would tell stories to their kids about gifts from the lord god in heaven...why, when I was a child in the village, we would hear only stories and maybe listen to an aunt sing..I do not think we had a radio playing all the time either. My yia yia had a cooking house and that is where we bathed. She had a stone oven and she would make bread in it. I have been here in the US for over 40 years, but I remain still enchanted by this memory, the "villager" experience.
I remember the mommas would sit on  a big rock and talk in the afternoon and they would keep an eye on their kids,  the kids never went too far unsupervised. We had all the wonderful foods that we grew and harvested..
I still feel like this is the best way to raise kids..all together as a family..my mom and dad still play a big role in my life and thank goodness for my mom!
I feel like she is just awesome! She brings me homemade spinach pie!

That full moon was just awesome:),  yes!

walking easily through my day

I hope you are too
I hope that you took a shower with my old whore soap or one of the others and thought of yourself being somewhere nice, somewhere comfortable and somewhere sexy and exotic..you are all those things already!
I love this! I love the way a man smells with vetiver and lime after a shower and I love neroli anytime but mostly now, in winter..it is just so good! Isn't it nice to come out of your bathroom transformed a little?
Your hands and bod with lingering scent and later you get a glint of yourself, the animal, having developed a scent all your own..with hints of tobacco, smoke or a citrus grove, later perhaps the fir reward..balsam fir, that is!
Do you know that when you use essential oils, your whole world is  more aware, more in touch with your best things? All true!
My favorite soap a this moment  is a jasmine frankincense soap I threw together. I could try describe the effects of this on my skin and my senses..jasmine being  calming and soothing to the heart, the mind and ones core  forces of mind. jasmine to me is isis, and lakshmi, the high priestess and me this week:)

frankincense is always there helping your tender parts.

Speaking of frankincense..and why we all need it, boswellic acid, oh..relieves pain, inflammation, kidney tonic, skin care extraordinaire, lung tonic, adrenal support, liver tonic..


I forgive myself for my mistakes, first off.
And I'll forgive you..what ever it takes
I can observe the world without saying a word
my will strong and worthy
my bones secure and sturdy..carrying me easily through my day and I hope this for you  and goodness, gratitude  and joy this season to your and yours..really!

have a wonderful day

white sage soap with cedarwood oils

white sage soap with lavender buds and cedarwood oils

I only used a little bit dry sage and some dry lavender flowers which I ground super fine.
I can't hardly wait to use this, as I have been craving white sage oil for weeks.
I smells like what you think it would smell like..cedarwood and crisp sage.

As a Libran, I must say, sage is all about truth, clarity and self awareness.
Knowing your mind, knowing the right way, and saying it without emotional attachment..


Jasmine Frankincense Soap
This one is just so good for me right now..maybe you too. It is all my jasmine together with a healthy shot of frankincense, Somalia..
I had rose de mai concrete from Eden and here, I  mixed it with jasmine sambac, jasmine grandiflium from both Egypt and India.
You get frankincense right off, peppery, hot, citrus, and then you get jasmine, right there now..soft, silky, royal anointing for a graceful high thinking human..
skin soft
warm
glistening


Eleneetha's Shop
I am shipping all week so that you might like to give a soap bar as a gift..
xo

everything about christmas reminds me

of the past
of  snow and me skating all winter..
One time, a boy, Jimmy Hutchinson asked me if I wanted to skate the Hynes River with him  for a few miles and I did. I barely spoke English, I was 12, but I skated like the wind, then..no girls would go, they said it was cold, but I would bundle up, wrap up and put on the gear and skate till dark.
I still have a scar from when I fell really hard on my thigh from trying a spin..
Spinning isn't for me I thought and that scar is still there after all these years.


We are heading into a doozy of a full moon.
the truth always comes out during this time and 'this" time is no exception, more for some that others who have gone too far in some way or another..
you know, gone too far in complaining where it becomes a violent rant, or meanness, or one's lazy withdrawal from the work force..too far...
people get to notice when you go too far..and then they get pissed..it is that way at work and home really.
I think we've all carried something too far, yes?

The full moon also brings you in to clean up mode. I think we are all making everything nice..we sang with the youngun, the twelve days of christmas..hahaaa
They ate many birds back then is all I can say. I mean a goose is huge..and when your are starving from lack of fruit, looks pretty awesome. they didn't have bananas or oranges as regularly 300 or 400 hundred years ago.
I explained to my girl that early man didn't know from baby jesus but saw that the sun just started peeking over the horizon and soon he could bathe without freezing his..hockey cockey..

have a wonderful day

hello there walnut pie

so a girl came in on crutches, her foot swollen or something and while she was gazing at the flower essences and thank goodness in  the great heavens we have them, I  asked her if she should need anything I would be happy to help her.
"what do you know about bach flowers?"
I know a little..:)
I said that after years of studying bach flowers, I know which ones have helped me along the way..
well then, she told me of her her plight in life, and went on and on about not letting the past go and her dad, I mean the guy with her, was like nodding his head the whole time I considered each essence she had laid out before her and how certain flower essences can help you heal better than herbs or drugs..if you intend something,  your mind automatically creates neurons to make it happen...after a long time of her, telling excuses for her mental pain and anguish, I gave her walnut and talked about protection from lower types in your mind..the ones you cling to for no fakin reason!
I was nice, :) I would think that some of us have lived  with a jerkavich or two in our lives, yes? She is like, "it is hard, you can't let things like the kind of abuse I had, go"
I wouldn't pry in to her life, I asked her age, 42, she looks 26..
I told her that you can..
not completely, your heart will tug like a sword went through a little bit and then you are back to "self" you! The one who handles everything with grace and poise.
Yes, I said, the one or two thoughts that you harness, train and master..
I thought to myself that what could it have been, she seems so healthy and fit, her eyes pretty bright..a little bit hard I guess....she had on yoga pants, she chose walnut essence..
walnut is for protection
from lower vibes
like bitterness
hate
pride
more pride
mirroring samelower behaviors
lazy
dirty
lies


shield
clean icy aura
powerful intentions
knowing your skills
pulling hard to stay alive
to survive
to carry knowledge knives
like swords of truth
like swords of plentitude

ha haha
(incidentally, in tarot swords are air and poignant understanding))

the shining

I feel like Shelly Duvall  in The Shining, with the tights and the long cotton tunic and the big robe on top and the green Ugg boots and my eyes still coal lined from last night.
I went to office holiday party at a worley ball place. It was a costume event and I went as Cher and no one got it! lol Mostly because I looked nothing like Cher. I did take an hour to flatten my hair though. they are like, "oh, look at you!"
Remember Cher, her eyes back in the, dare I ask, 70's?
She was wearing Revlon then and I was just hitting my teens. I loved her eyes! I would get all the Revlon eye make up and make my eyes like hers. I thought foundation was the best thing ever! I still love a nice foundation. Right now I am wearing Mineral Fussion's warm basic foundation. I wear it at work only and then when home, I wear a little balm and that is all.
It is lovely to  let your skin breath and speaking of which, Evan Healy's Rose hydrosol is the best thing in any health store apothecary..every other thing is a step down as far as toner, refresher, hair tonic, and even in private pink areas, offers cooling gentle healing!
That is if you do not have a source on line and just happen to be out and here you are at Whole Foods and what do you do? Not buy it? You need rose hydrosol, you just do! How else are you going to work your oils in to your skin?
Rose is so healing, and we forget that!
She is the queen, the queen of flowers!
She is never, not one time, the same and yet she is, she is always rose, sweet, like apples and high in nutrients which have yet to be understood..
she is cooling
anti inflammatory
calming
helps digestion
opens the heart for forgiving
leaves the past behind her because each year she knows she's as beautiful as ever

I am mixing her with vetiver and activated charcoal in Dark Matter Black Madonna Soap! Just awesome really!
I think you should have one!
I will include one free sample of organic rose  rose hydrosol with each order of black soap from my etsy shop!
anastasia'a etsy shop




I  hope you have a wonderful day which by the way, the black soap is a bigger cut and sure to bring goodness and joy to any beautiful bod!


Sorry I said Shelly Winters before, I have since corrected that little flaw..one among many of mine:):)! HAHAHA LOL

This is the best time to really clean up your act and get busy doing good for yourself and for others.
So what things haven't gone your way before, this is now and this is who you are now!

You have made mistakes, you have let people down, they have totally fucked you over and you are blessed from things like that..not the other way. Everything is learning and this week is the best time to learn and remember the future, not the past..
you can realize your goals, your ideas are melding in a palatable lovely arangement and they are so vibrant!
I hope you have a wonderful day..

in production for 2014

as always

making charcoal soap with rose one of these days if my rose de mai gets here because the post man lied and said he could not deliver my package on Friday..
do you know  that was so taken by this!
really, we were all here..
see, I can take the bus from the jungle with all of my kids on a bus during a cocaine raid, but one late package and my adrenals go haywire!
ha ha ha ha
In the bus bathroom there was a storage unit that one of the bus porters had stowed cocaine from Panama..
They waited until we were in El Salvador to detain us all for hours because of the interrogations and then the military came and we all had to stand in line..they kept saying, "no te preocupes, senora"
"grcais"
I wasn't too worried having lived with them for five years, I knew the culture pretty well by then.

so now I must go the the post office and try to get my package! Dude, the plan is to not do a bunch of errands and stay here and make things..

I am really content knowing that the mundane can still excite me a little and the fact that Mars is on my sun, my venus and my Midheaven..which means mars will be there too eventually in 2014!

the feeling is Sag!

Sagittarius rules right now!
Why?
Because they have worked hard, become more diligent and thorough..
This is the best time to get to the bottom of things so you can move on later..By this weekend Mars enters Libra and runs the show for a long time..Till August..
The best thing to do is really focus and don't be a jerk if you are already a Libra. If you are not a Libra person and have planets in Aries, Cancer and Capricorn, you should still be calm and do not over react as much as use the energy to get moving, work out and get somethings done.
Watch for jealousy and revenge tactics..it is not going to work or worth your while. It is the low road. Take the high road and use your good vibes to inspire people and try not to take thing too seriously. It isn't worth your while if it make you so sad to begin with..really!

stress and anxiety

lately people with depression are coming in more and more to ask for anything that might make them feel better because they want to get off the drugs.
there is nothing that will make you feel like the drugs..not lemon balm and not gaba..not phosphtidal serene and not st john's wort..
a little bit, yes..
but drugs cover the problem so well that  you do not even have to face it..

So, my question is this,
Why not focus on what is making you so upset?
We know that the root of all sadness is not getting what your heart wants..
but when you are all day in an emergency mode and a total jerk to everyone, we all have to ask..what is it that will make you happy, for good?
You want to get married, you want more money, you are sad because your penis is not as big as the last guys, or that your tootoo is too big.. ::)
or that your belly isn't flat or that your lips are not pouty enough..
it is always something isn't it?
Women in their fifties are sad because their husbands or boyfriends want 20 year olds..
sigh
the outside world is a frenzy of "too much and not enough"
I wonder if it is because we have so much that we have time to dwell on wanting more and more that some are willing to do anything it takes to feel better.
and most of the time, it is because someone doesn't love us enough!

I love myself enough!
Everything else follows that:)

have a wonderful day
xo



moon venus pluto capricorn

it is so dang slow too..
so dang sober
serious
reserved
bones
teeth
serious settlement in "woes"
austerity
dignity
poise

why
because cappy brings all those things into focus
because cappy is about duty
reality
and the rules

this is a good day for Virgo and some Leos to get real
Libra you too, get real
get busy
ask for a boon
give a boon secretly to one or three people
you are the only one who will know
and then watch as bounty unfolds before you

it is the real scientific law of attraction..

:)

gods and goddess happy new moon in sag


earthly gods


there is a whole lot going on and we are finally out of a little rut we we had to endure in November..The next 4 weeks are sure to bring many new ideas on the table.
With a sag new moon we can expect a stronger desire to learn something new, or, be forced to learn something new.
It can be exciting even if it is in the mundane muggle world.
For some of us, it is a chance to enjoy some of our work from last summer.
My tinctures which I made a few weeks ago, are so wonderfully potent, I do believe I can learn so much more from herbs and  the most real medicine..forgiveness and more forgiveness..
trust me it is the best way..
xo
have a good day:)

Happy December 2013

secretly saving yourself and the world :)
hidden secrets ...(oh mighty Isis, I am always poised in the deeply satisfying light of  eternal knowing)

hidden vice
hidden love affair
hidden fear
studious
learning
steps
focusing on the details
fear of being alone
when you already are in there, in your head...alone you ahh...

Moon Mercury Saturn in Scorpio..continued..
what are you afraid of?
what is going to happen anyhow?
what do you want?
nothing but this one thing?
that is what a petulant child would say
there must be one reason why you grieve and hate the world..
these things will be more intense for Aquarius, and LEO ooooooohhhooo...grrrrr
Scorpio knows he is smarter than everyone else.. they usually are, that is the thing..they know it and are correct, most of the time..it is the delivery we need to take care with. All of us!
This affliction of being right all the time  may be also strong in Taurus and Leo..ooooooohhhh grrrrr
and then they want to cuddle..go figure!
Humans!

conjuring now while working through Mars in the solar 12th

I am driven by my thoughts
creating
swishing thoughts
wavy ones
deeply painful ones
where I want more
it is so cleansing
the release, too many and death by swords
you can pour that  over a plate of "hey, thank you for helping me"
you can be the helper
and show who you are through all your words, your sparkly breath..light reflecting  off of  each particle..
this  making all your colors glimmer or you may be experiencing a dim glow
depending on how you use them, how you fan their fire
a dim glow lasts for etternity in some cases and big bold stars explode


xo :)


thank you









my wild friends and aquarians

the very gary show

Gary is so interesting, yes?
He makes me smile, I should give him a bar of soap!

today is a lucky scorpio day

We can't get away from Scorpio lately.
We have the Moon. Mercury, Saturn and the True Node.
That makes all Scorpios pretty, even if your moon is in Scorpio, it makes you prettier.
What? Don't believe me?
Look at any one of them and see how pretty they are and how they can feel and grieve and let go too..because of that, they are prettier.

The best things for this period
money
fixing it
working for it
getting it from others in a surprise
getting down with goodness
looking at the past
letting go of bad habits
or not
you could let it fester
be mad
be stupid
be glad of some one's suffering
no
that is not you
you do what needs done and get on with it

does it feel heavy, man?
yes, it does, some days too much, being that these periods sweep away debris..and that means people too. they must be set aside now, some of them do..You simply do not have time for too many new people in your day..
Look and see where you have Scorpio in your chart. there you will see where these energies are being propelled to and from really..
I have Scorpio in the tenth house..there is a whole lot going on with me and all the tenth house stuff..work, parents, status, financial transparency..is all tenth house..I can do it, I am well equipped to pursue clarity in these areas.
Plus..it is what it is..Que Serra Serra
or however you spell it..as we all know my texting and spelling gets more wrong with the auto correct than I do all on my own!
lol

let me be your ruler you can call me queen bee

the song is cute, I am sure you've heard it:)
see, I'm hip:)

What a bunch of emotional crap families can be! :)
You have the girls though, the ladies..man they are  cute. nymphs so pretty with their hair tumbling down..they all take that time to fix the locks. me, tight pony tail, glorious as always! ha ha
I am like my mother in many ways but with all these women here, I see no reason to clean up after a big meal..I don't.. and they just do it, they clean up for yia yia and I get to eat little bites of greek thanksgiving food..there were many pitas, spinach and cheese, caramelized onion pita and feta for everyone!she also made delicious greek bread, blessed by her hands..I know how my mother is, she blesses her dough, just as I have always done with mine..it is a villager thing.
"mom, celery does not go in greek salad, seriously?"
"it doesn't"
lol, she is funny
The best desert bite was a cake with galatoburiko inside.. which seems to have been re baked in honey syrup and then you bite in to firm custard inside..it blew my mind.
I am like, "what is this a fried doughnut?"
I warmed them until they were tender and we ate them all...

galatoburiko is a firm cream custard often baked in fillo and honey lemon syrup..
what is my  problem with the custard lately?






what about raw cacao with vanilla right about now?
It is really big time with vanilla and winter isn't it?


Maybe I should have a black friday special..
eleneetha.etsy.com
you can see what is up with that there..
have a wonderful day:)
I will attend to my tasks with ease, focus, timely and smiling always..

happiness on thanksgiving day 2013 because I love cranberry sauce

Doing a load of laundry as I prep the kitchen for a big day of eating. We'll go to my moms because she still insists on cooking her way so papou can can eat at the correct time..hahaha
I don't care, I'll eat at 12 and at 3 as I never really over eat on thanksgiving..I kind of eat what I want all the time and have been known to make such feast 4 times a month..
we love sweet potatoes here..
so I get to make salad, chat with my brother, laugh, be critiqued on my shoes, one of the boys looks like a hippie, the other one like a model..all of them and their mates and kids in one room.
I will be back by 2ish with all the food yia yia prepped for us to eat and then I'll languish on my sofa all the rest of the day..

that there is a fine way to spend a day with fams..say hello, love and hug them, talk about the brilliant "walking dead" with them or listen to their favorite well written show on telly..I still want to watch the dr who special..I haven't seen it yet..I am watching "star trek" too..my goodness! Captain Kirk, an Aries, was intense...and Spock, dude, you want to come over, you sexy gorgeous man we can watch walking dead together..(spoiler) The governor is back!
He is still stunning! Nemoy is!
Life is good..
we do not put our anger (I don't feel any) on others
we let go of the past and that has nothing to do with these people who have always been there..my mom, always compassionate and rich beyond measure and my dad, an Aries, still very sweet in a way, his favorite thing is give us money on such days..he is an Cancer Moon type..
I'll expect nothing less today...

I hope you also have a nice thanksgiving.
There are so many things to be thankful for (soap, money, job, faking smart kids, cute ones too, nice mom, nice dad, nice fakin nice bed, nice cotton sheets, nice lavender to spray on pillow, nice, lovely, you!):))
so many real raw emotions you may have  felt with someone..these things are connections from a gut level
forgive
forgive
release release
this is the way of human gut instinct and loyalty so that it isn't  not what someone else or some other social pattern  wants you to be, but what you really want, what you really know to be true..
accept that  and happiness thrives
push it to its limit and it dies
death hurts like a dirty..wait for it...Kali! And do you really at this moment want to walk on lava??
Go to the meadow, sit by some warm sunny spot where the ground is firm and holds you and you need nothing more than that. No more friends, no more lovers, no more money, because what you feel is real, this is real, your sadness and your happiness. It is who you are.

I love you and and am very thankful today:)
Taking a rest because Mars in Libra is on the way..my chariot needs polished, my horses fed..I want a horse!

venus pluto stand out

in Capricorn

Capricorns have been illusive and busy,  yes..but the rest of us have had a taste of Capricorn's medicine these last few months..
We are having to take our licks and step aside a little to see what passes us by..it is funny how we are climbing none the less! That is the Capricorn way..
 As far as attitude goes, we  have the fake smile and the just right smile.
Can people detect the difference?
Not right away, but, eventually our "true colors" show.

 Venus and Pluto in Capricorn have been with us all week.
For some of us, it has been heavy learning. For other's obsessive compulsive behaviors.
Capricorn and Pluto together bring staunch and rigid rules to the forefront. Ego, and competition being highlighted. It can be intense jealousy..intense, misguided and fierce..
I have seen it first hand.
Can you accept an other's "just" place on this earth? You will accept or not. But perhaps, your idea of happiness must change or you have to let others have it their way..
Capricorn is about aging and growing at the same time. So is Pluto really..but Pluto brings the question of sexuality and satisfaction  right now..
What do I know? I am but an observer, capturing glimpses of matching dispositions and measuring that against past experiences..

For Scorpio, the change is dramatic..
For Capricorn, there is no question of their abilities, none..cappy can take the long road and know every stone along the way..I love that..I am at this moment grateful for my Capricorn Moon.
Cappy moon  is considered to be one the most difficult in astrology. Usually these folks have a rough childhood followed by better later part of their life..
Like I said, step aside and see what passes you and realize you are still climbing..
Everyone deserves to climb with you or pass if they need to..it is cool either way, some look back at you and want to stay a while and then they are gone again..
Nothing is forever and every thing is!

I love you and thank you for reading my drivel:)

soap at the end of 2013

remember when I said that soap is a dirty business?
heh!
it still is because there are low fuks lurking trying to get the edge even if they might even have an inkling that you might  get in their way..

I say things..it must be my mars in Gemini. I sometimes spew out things  and do not understand why but they are needed to be said. My mom has that ability too. My gut instincts always, 100% of the time, get it right.

There is a local soap maker here who wants to get in our shop..she called me and I kind of scolded her.."why do you use synthetic scents?"
"what's the point then of making home made soap?"
two days later...
a local gal who buys soap from me, calls me on the phone..
"so I met that local gal at the hair dresser's and she said she is in all the stores and why not you, anastasia, why not you?"
my blood pressure!!
"dude, she uses synthetics, I don't give a crap about nag champa and neither should you!"
"did you tell your buyers not to bring her in?"
'no, but I would  certainly give her and  you the facts and not care if it sliced through some one's well presented synthetic soap product..plus, we already have a boat load of soap with artificial scents, look at indigo wild, the are beautiful and half fake. I did even not tell her that I make soap!"
she got quiet, I didn't..
"I cannot control what the common shopper wants to buy..but if you ask me how to help your baby's skin because it is on fire, I will help you, you will be back because even in the retail setting I can find something to help you right now..and no, I do not want quit what I am doing right now to sell soap to stores. i'd have to invest about 25 thousand dollars to convert the garage in to a proper work environment for soap making because I,  for sure, do not want to go drive to a building to do my , dare I say, art? Craft?
I am a solitary artist and I like it.
My soap is special and not meant for the masses. Sure, I'd  like to touch 888 people next year and the year after that of course..My soap is for people who love lingering oils on their body, one here, one there, all over earth, I want to serve a nice perfectly made soap nugget and know it is from me to you. It has nothing to do with retail and all to do with self actualization..
am I an idealistic lotus eater?
:)
lotus, sweet, deep earthy green..yum

Lotus Eater Potion
dab on the third eye
and then every where else
for amazing ideas to flow
capture the useful ones let the rest  go
remove yourself from strife
be quiet
serene
instinctively knowing what is next
doing your best
do what you love and do not  concern yourself with anyone else
you are fine right now


you are safe and warm and clean because there is always a nice potion nearby:)

white lotus absolute
osmanthus
one drop ambrette seed co2
jasmine sambac
jasmine grandifolium
one drop sandalwood rare
1/4 ounce beeswax
1/2 cup sweet fruity olive oil (organic if you can)

lip balms

I do not make them.
I will make some now. My daughter wants one because she reads so much and she bites her lip while reading. I find my self doing the same thing when studying something. When cold air hits already tender skin, bamm, irritation!
It is winter here in Michigan and our skin is dryer than ever.
No more moist air all hot and damp..no..dry heat and more closed windows! One cracked window can make a whole room cold!

The lip balm will be in a pot..I am not  about to fill little tube thingies..lol
I am thinking
vanilla and coconut oil. Something I wouldn't mind eating if it gets in my mouth...lip embellishment eventually gets in your mouth and then your throat..

so vanilla:)
vanilla coconut to begin with..then, if I want to, I will make more:)
maybe in,
lemon
bergamot
grapefruit

I am spinning a new web
to trap my best thoughts
I will extract the electric  juice out them
I will instinctively know what is best
I am a stealthy huntress with infinitely powerful  intent:)

tobacco and patchouli

I
made this soap with  tobacco and patchouli
I added oakmoss, orange blossom and more patchouli on top of that..
If you were lucky enough to get one, nice one!!
There are only two left..they are so deeply wonderful!
:)

the queen of swords and we are all a little curtailed aren't we

there is a bob dylan song that goes through a list of bad things that happened to a man and in the end he said, "lucky to be alive though"
being grateful isn't all its cracked out to be for some when they aren't in happiness mode..
every day life can be tedious
long
boring
people in your face
waiting at the light
waiting behind a yia yia at the light
driving here
waiting in yet another line, to pay for food, to take home to your cave to finally not be in a line..

sometimes you get to where that every day routine makes you mean and grumpy..stop it!
who are you the queen of swords?
not getting her way and then lashing out as much as she can in order to prove that she is indeed worthy of goodness..?
We've all been there I am sure.
I look at the queen of swords as someone that can get angry and someone who may lack control of what she says in anger..words can hurt as much as a sword, do not forget that. Course you do..when you are in a  rage, anything can come out at that point..point is how are you going to control that pre-point phase?
I have learned to put up an easy defense point, lol,  by saying nothing ..best time is now to say less, curtail your instincts to react..not everything needs to be justified by you or him, her or me..I mean mean really, isn't "let go" the epitome of that concept?

The queen of swords when paired with the tens or the tower, is about a woman who has shocking events surrounding her in her domain.
She may feel burdened and cold
the good thing is, she is correct and steady and can slice through some one elses changes in life on her grand ice sleigh of a throne..
 I see a lady
and a cold hearted killer if need be
I see a woman, light hair
who must curtail her drive to slice or wound
but to  find a way to glide over her life..using her sword as an anchor, leading her during hard turns..
:)



sigh..:)
what do you think of pearl powder? It is 80% calcium, you know from pearl?
poor little pearly creature!

back in the day

I worked at whole foods market way back in the day on Stadium, in Ann Arbor.
We had what the store still considers the code or values..
We loved good food, an alternative life style, smoked weed and ate veggie burgers.
I worked prep foods and I had my eye on one of the fish guys..he was so fucking thick I wanted to grab him,  jump on him and take him down...but I always kept my distance. he would say things and smile at me, " hi, Ana";)
I'd be like, "hi Hank"))
Hank, was his name..Hank from the fish tank, moohaaaa:)
The direction he was in was towards the left of me in the store..I looked at that guy like a quincux..of some sort..which leads to my point about Aquarius and their squares and quincuxes..lol

Which makes me think that Aquarius is being lead in many directions..
grow up face the music live a life of drudgery and too much food, no sex or still have that, take a lover and feed your spirit, or move on and be on your own again..
Do not throw away your future because you are aching for something..and familiarity leads to contempt especially when there isn't much to share as far as mental  stimulation of any sort really..that can be said about anyone, even the great exciting new people you are surrounded by now..may become too boring and perhaps not worthy of you..sorry, but that may be true..or perhaps you are there now with your mate and he is cold and uncaring..
he will face the day too
when there is more to him and you
you who energizes the room and throws ideas like a space surfer..making space dust.

There is this to consider, do what is right, not what you want... for some..but what is right is not measured by social standards!  Not for Aquarius! There is a code, Aquarius has a strong moral fiber!
You must look at what you are willing to give up in order to move on. Is it too much to carry in the long run?
Get rid of it then.
Do you want another chance to find that perfect long term companion?
That means letting go of everything you've built to this moment.
You love nice things, the best things so I say look deeper for the deeper meaning of your happiness. It won't be anything you can talk about. You will find that everything you've built until now is who you are and you are creating an imprint at each moment..don't waste energy on hurts or jealousies..they are a form of self loathing and lead you away from real goodness and..if you move too fast today, you might regret the events after November..when  certain enthusiasms will fade dramatically..

Jupiter in Cancer

i only mention it because i thought you should know Jupiter is in Cancer and yes it is great for loving your momma, your home and your bed..but it is also going to and has made some very significant connections with Pluto and Uranus..
It has been all or nothing for a while now..
Mercury being retrograde has sort of put us all in a lull after a big row with  someone or other..but that should not make us forget the next wave of energy.
it is innovative and honest for sure and if some of you have been waiting for a chance to shine and it has seemed like you are in a cocoon still transforming, well there is big change, big..
Aries
Libra
Capricorn
Cancer
For sure you will have to act some how. you will be changing or someone you are near all the time is changing..maybe both of you.
Aries moon peeps, your emotions might propel you in to making bad decisions or should I say rash?
It is ok and it is what it is with Aries..I have to say, they are loyal when it counts!
Jupiter in Cancer makes us want to fix our home and make a home. For women the urges to make a nice home are strong during Jupiter in Cancer..I say women, it might be men too..I am a woman so I relate to what women want and need.
Ask, for what you want and say the truth..I know it may hurt someones feelings but if you say it nicely, they will get it..if you are mean and nasty, people will see it on your face..
there are genuine chemicals released during happiness which triggers eye muscles..you can't fake that..people react to your face..in my line of work, that is important..
And Jupiter in Cancer is also about work, and taking on more, proving your are worthy and enthusiastic about what you do..
It is a refection of who you are..everything you touch becomes energized with invisible electrons and whatnot!
:)))
I'll stop for now, for now...have a wonderful day:)

Mars In Virgo

It depends on where Mars is transiting in your chart..but think about key words for Mars and key words for Virgo

Well for Libra anything it is a challenge and a blessing.
There is the  thing that  you get to be in your head and away from the world.
you get to think of things that help people and your service to that is astounding.
You get to laugh at them too..Virgo vibes are  a bit impish!
You get to be a lotus eater..one who sits and day dreams things up
you get to clean and clean and clean..
you had better..
The Libra Mars transit is almost upon us and all through the spring and summer..back and forth it'll go..You'll be busy!
I want to really hone in one some good learning and growth opportunities with this Mars transit in Libra a commin'
Mars makes us bossy so we should watch our anger and our impatient air of self importance and Virgo men at this moment may be kind of mean and impatient..people do not dig it!
You aren't the only one suffering and they see your disdain on your face..that is some Virgo men..Virgo women, totally different, but do not even try to debate with one, she'll blow you out of the water with facts and info..love it!
I love Virgo, what can I say!
I love their naughty side too. Virgo can wait forever for sex and then blow your mind! They are earthy and giving..Mix in a Leo type with Virgo and you have a creative idealist, perhaps obsessing on that one thing they cannot even go back and change! Stop!
Mars in Virgo is about hiding your anger..especially if you are Libra!
 For Virgo mixed with Aries, I think it may be quite interesting..big big changes and most of them easy and flowing..be the man or woman you always wanted to be, is what I say!
Suppressing your arguments helps nothing..but it is sometimes better to say nothing and let things work themselves out..sometimes!



the not so sweet sweet roll and mars in Virgo, trasiting the solar 12 th house..libra sun libra rising

I got sick at work:)
They called the emergency guys for me and they wouldn't take me to the hospital because they said there was nothing wrong..my vitals, were perfect he said..a bug
the flu
nux vomika
a digestive aid
Over a sweet roll and coffee and then toast with butter and jam..talk about a mess of health!
Not!
I know, I ate a bunch of gluten a whole bunch, then I cam home and ate some toast with lingonberry jam I had bought while browsing at ikea..I shouldn't have gone, I had a bug up my ass about curtains! It made the day  rushed but it was ok and then the storms came..I ate the roll cold and as I recalled the package was way easy to open..
the thing is, the sugar, the coffee, the menopause, hot flashes make me nauseous..but this time I couldn't get up. The guy said, I am having an anxiety attack..ass hole, I was poisoned, I snapped at him..I thought he was a dick..I wanted them to carry me out..I am like planning for him..he probably thought, I was too bossy to be really sick!
"now, this is what we are going to do"
I walked out on my own...I thought someone should have carried me! :)
Health!
I am a very strong woman it would appear..I hadn't had my blood sugar checked in like ever..or my blood pressure..110/62
he said I had the flu or something..
I think I took something that was bad and my perfect stomach, wouldn't accept it..
That is a good thing in many ways and one reason I do not often take alcohol..a glass of wine is enough for a month for me..
I wish I could have a glass here and there!
I know now what happened and I will tell it!
I consumed lavender oil..not even a whole drop but when I poured two ounces in the container for soap, I splashed some on my mouth..I rinsed and thought nothing of it.It is lavender, and don't worry, I wear glasses when I make soap:)
It was the last thing that came out..a drop of lavender which refused to stay in my body, mixed with digestive enzymes..it made every cell in my body feel numb and electrified. I feel like I was tripping or that might be what tripping would be like..I was ready to give up..I am like what if I die at work?
haha
My sweet Aries girl laughed, "you're not going to die"

Mars in Virgo

the full moon in Taurus

 Full Moon is in Taurus..Sun in Scorpio

It is a time of repairing breaches which have left something of a gash in the structure.
Focus on your money, your love (r), yes, but not because you do not have enough. You always have enough.
Focus on yourself, become more stunning, eat better, do something for yourself..
If you get joy from cleaning up your place, like me, then stay home and do that..get rid of things that do not serve..they only sit there and collect dust and we all know that The Scorpio Taurus polarity love beauty, is very beautiful!


key words this next few days:
Who fixes what
who owns what
who owes what

serenity
calm
steady
good food
good focus with Mercury in Scorpio
beginnings of a long term relationship
the mind cutting through non essentials, Mercury in Scorpio
recognizing powers beyond our control, Saturn in Scorpio
taking care of yourself and all that is yours, Jupiter in Cancer
a passion for details, Mars in Virgo
what is the reality that gives rise to the world of appearances, Neptune in Pisces..I want that one!



buisness and pleasure

you know, I work for a store that already sells soap. I have to always separate my business of making money so I  can work with oils and also being out there in  retail, working, selling. talking about ingredients.
That there is the wonderful thing, ingredients. I will help people in so many ways today. I will show them the butter, the cheese, the cookies the ranch, the bullion and the tea and I will take them to bakery..and then I will do again some other way.
If  someone likes handmade or more  natural than shiny packages on a shelf, I will encourage them to melt some shea butter and simply mix it with jojoba, why not! Make a cream or scrub with that fine avocado oil  in your cart!

I love reading about other's compositions, be it food  or sweet stuff, or cheese and why wine has cherry notes or cacao tastes differently from Peru..
The Peruvians, btw, are giving us some fine coffee next year and what about maca, the best thing ever!!
If you aren't using maca yet, you should try a little.
If you are very active like me and need a mental lift, try maca and if you are over 40..especially, you, just go get a small bottle of maca  from Gaia, and take one a day for a week or two and then stop..you can also buy powder and make a tea with it...
plus it is wonderful for men and women..

How I wouldn't love to stay here and organize and clean this place up some more. I feel like the season is upon us and I am very very happy at this point and time in my life.
I have prepped for some fine soap making with what looks  to be the best time lord ever and also one of my favorites, lavender oakmoss..
How wonderful is lavender and oakmoss together!
How refreshing and mossy!
Should I add a drop violet? I have some.
Or a little bit clover? Some broom?
The moon is almost full, I have been gazing at her and I know, that I am more serene now than ever before. I do not know all the reasons. I am sure they  extend far beyond my earthly measurement, beyond my dreams of what I am and who god is and why, or what..
Some saints saw glimpses, creating ideas such as "free will" and looked for answers for human suffering..why suffer..but if you think about it, it is true, free will, self control, self awareness, mind control are all religions.
Isn't the an awesome Dr Who special coming up? DT will be there and so will Rose..I am so excited all of a sudden!
lol

Oh my God  I don't have a clue
These paradoxes are hard to construe
My mind is blown I bet yours is too
Well I guess this is Doctor Who

I met a girl

No, I didn't kiss her, but I made her cry.
She was already on the brink and I said something..I forget what.
When she started to cry, I asked her what was the reason for her sadness? She said her asshole lawyer husband has been really mean to her these last few months..
"what is he an aries man"
She pulled her self together and as pulled away from me,
"I'm catholic"
"so"
I said, "so what? It is all sun worship anyhow, that is all religion is!"
"ok, his birthday on April 17th"
hah ha hahaaa
I was right!
She moved in a little closer again.
She stayed and listen to me and my ideas on how to pull herself together and not be a victim just because her man is freaking out inside and she can't see it. He thinks she isn't smart enough of course, she just wants to have money and stuff  and not work..hahahaa
What did I say to her to set her in tears?
I said that pain and agony are based on desire and not getting what we want..
desire leads to sadness, then low immune system and then too much cortisol in ones bod and then they are constantly looking of that pill, (natural) or potion, or drug..to feel calm and happy..
the drugs only work for some and they realized they literally change ones chemical  disposition..so we search for that perfect herbal tonic which uplifts and heals our shattered thoughts..
shattered, I said!
I also told her that the divine hand of God or whatever we are is beyond catholic rules on earth..
I am sick of it, yo!
How many people did they torture in the name of Jesus? How many people did they kill during the crusades?
If Jesus allowed himself to be tortured on a cross, how was he going to care about salvaging any piece of land on earth..I am absolutely certain that he would never ever have aprooved of killing other humans for him..I am certain, 100%!
Don't tell me he did it for our sins!
Because it didn't work!
Man is still in his very early stages of evolution..don't believe me?
Look at us 100 years ago..had we any idea we would be looking at each other on our phone while we talked and chatted up?
Yup!
here we are..
She will come back, because I made her feel better, and she likes that better than drugs. I gave her theanine for her low self esteem, she already had rescue remedy in her cart..
You can look at someones cart and know them..all her stuff was for her and her sadness..at least she had essential oils in her basket..even though she read on some Young Living website that she should take the clove oil internally!
Oye, with the food grade business!
One drop clove oil in tea?
I do not know if I like that..but I can be stubborn..still, I am not swallowing chamomile oil..flowers steeped in tea, yes..oil no..same with lavender!
Like I said, I am stubborn.


have a wonderful day..where everything is going your way
because you want less and do more for others and you smile and remain calm and serene at all times..I want that for me and I hope that for you :)
xooo

the quiet

it has been quiet. It is like we are all getting ready for the long winter here in Michigan. It got cold, very very cold, hey, to me 22 degrees is faking cold, but, I have a really good coat this year.
I have been quiet, a little bit quiet, but that doesn't mean I am not conjuring up some glorious thing or two. My plan is this for yule, I offer my gift to the gods, the heavens, the cosmos, the ouranos of life, and the actual ouranos, the sky, the star, the cluster, the so, so far away...the speed at which dark matter propels me..I am but a spec on a spec of dust!

(soap I would make)

Blue Dust

Blue spruce
Black spruce
white spruce absolute
fir absolute
templin fir
tansy
immortelle
tagetes
german chamomile ( a drop or two)
vetiver for me and you:)

I would have our planets in mind of course..
How can I not make things which help me to understand Uranus square Pluto? Think about them as magnets or elastic magnets changing their speed and we are a part of the same force..of course if will effect us both physically and then emotionally..Ever get shaken up for no reason at no particular time? How do you know that Mercury hasn't just decided go go a little  slower?
How can I not make something influenced my Mercury retrograde or a quick little aspect from Venus when there is already  our  intense Pluto Uranus angle/vibe?
It is basic mythology but we are making it..it is weird, and what do I  know but to reflect t his though fats and oils...I am a fatty!
Of course, I will meet others like me, others who love the profound meaning of oils, plants, rocks, gems and every other thing that can only be made in a star, like, gold, like silver, and Uranium too!

Uranus is a planet of extremes brings new ideas that jolt us in to action. sometimes it is better to let go than to fight, Uranus makes that happen. The truth is the truth but we humans cry and carry on about our extreme needs and desires..we want more than we need, that is for sure!
Take time for sanctuary, your second sanctuary!
Let's talk about palmaroa. she has been mostly set aside for fancy oils, or for lavender instead..but as in everything, now is her time to shine. She is calm and sweet and caring and she lets you be you, like when you take her to meet vetiver and lavender topped off with a little citrusy yuzu and pink grapefruit..

I made this blend for someone, a wonderful girl from Canada where the snows are deep:)xo
Course it had aged but when I opened the bottle I had mixed a couple of weeks ago, it blew me away! I had to add a little more vetiver because I wanted  to, and it made this palmarosa vetiver essential oil blend  even smoother than before.

Did you know vetiver is anti inflammatory and relaxes lower back beautifully. The truth is that  most muggles don't like it unless it is hidden. Then. they are like, "oh, you smell so good"
:)

 I would say that second sanctuary soap and butter are like a fine perfume, with a fine fine tenacity and a crspy palmaroa dash of scent! Plamarosa is ruled by Venus so it is a healer in all matters of the heart. Magically, palmarosa can help to over come negative emotions and  attachments that prevent one from moving on..

second sanctuary

a bunch of women

I went to a baby shower yesterday. Me, in a room with 30 women and I didn't even offend anyone..I don't think so anyway:)
ha ha ha
I am like a big peasant woman sticking out everywhere I go..
I have gone through this phase before when I was a body builder and I had lost so much weight that I lost my breasts and my face started to look like I was a mix between Frankenstein and Dracula's wife..I didn't color my hair then because it was a rich red blond on its own but I had this white streak of hair through the back that stood out..one of my boys inherited that. people would look at me oddly. My friends said it was all in my mind..:)
Sometimes people tell me I am pretty..I always feel shocked, like maybe they are lying to me to make me feel better about my witchy face.
The other day, an old friend stopped by and because she is shorter than I , she looked up at me and said, "you're so pretty"..
"Yea?
It must be because this is the best time in my whole life. It must be because I sleep with a clear conscience. I must be because I always have money for oils and it must be because I have satisfaction in my work. I love to cook..soap, pancakes and ideas..that makes me pretty dang happy and maybe that shows on my face because I smile a whole lot! (om trayam backum ya jamma he)"

So yea, I went and chatted and laughed. They were nice, all of them..I got to hold a wee baby (6 pounds) and he rolled over on me and looked up, he just starred at me and then he noticed me and smiled..
My whole body went warm and I was taken away by his stunning soul which I may have gotten a glimpse of during that split second of smile from him.
:)

let's talk mars in libra till august

omg

That much fire in my sign Libra,  or maybe your Sun, Venus and Mercury and perhaps you might even have Jupiter or saturn in Libra! Take care now so that later you can chill out..
When Mars transits your Sun or Venus, the every day just became more intense.
I think the retrogrades will show where one should adjust one's trajectory and also I think it'll be awesome for so many reasons!
You have Pluto in Capricorn Square Uranus and it has been back and forth with extremes, now I must admit mars in Libra will come in a sweep things up! Libra can be cold and pretty much gets to the point..
Oh, you're tired and your mad or your hurt..let's sort through it!
If you are expecting for people to greet you with compassion and enthusiasm, they will but nothing is as it seems.
Virgo, next year you are going to become free of chains that have bound you for the last five years and more..I know you've been working at it and I hope that you continue with great achievements and more money..buy soap!
Libra, honey..too much honesty, yea? Focus on clarity and kindness. Others may see you as too aggressive at times.all charged up on electric life currents! Great time to work out and get your bod in better shape..you always look better naked anyhow..that there is true about every libra woman or man..
Scorpio, I am so sorry about a certain sadness in your  life.  It will teach you to make new adjustments as what  what you need and not just what you want. Making time for others may be more common next year with this Mars in Libra thing. Still, every disappointment leads to something better, especially for Scorpio, they are masters at precision..surgeons of life!
Aries, honey, this is a time to get it together and open your eyes as to what you really need and what you are really doing with your life. I know you are secretly winning and soon the world will see who you are, a major player with  excellent motor skills.
People want to follow you.
Taurus, good, you are alone for a minute..not for long..I think you will move closer to waht you love next year. You do not want to go, but you want to..lol
Cancer, your sex apeal is out of this world..smart too. I feel like you will change locations in your work.. nice one!
Gemini, your attention to detail and ability to make people feel comfy is what I love about you! Plus you are so pretty, so dang pretty!
Leo, finally, a wonderful opening, a meadow, where you can enjoy the warmth of the Sun on your back and glance at the statue of yourself in your mind. The mundane bores you, and even now, you quietly wait for the best opportunity to pounce on exactly what you want..
Sag, be sincere and everything is fine..you finally get to see how libra feels like..it will show you that you are just as vulnerable as the rest of us..hard to believe and also true:)
Cappy, what are you a kid agian, learning new things being a child, open, like a sponge for the best things? Loving your family, doing noble things in your mind and in you physical life? Being a cook, a caretaker and a servant has many rewards when given with true awareness of gratitude..it is out of this world good!
What do I know, who am I a libra soapmaker woman with witchy cappy moon vibes?
Aquarius, new friends, new lovers, wow..you've changed! For the good. Some say aquarius gives too much to others rather than those they love..some say they are most kind and generous friends with an ability to go outside the lines.
Pisces, It is always hard to tell you about astrology. You know more than I could ever say, so I will let you tell me, show me and calm me down when I get all fired up, ready to swat someone with the end of my broom..or is that your awesome tail swating with a force that could only come from a deep swimmer of vast oceans..

gays can't get married

but you take away someones gun, it all goes to hell in a jet plane, if there were a hell and a way to get there...

Let me tell you that I hate politics but the facts are the facts..they all suck!
If you want to treat your family with natural food and hunt for food which fewer and fewer Americans ever do, fine, put it away and why do you need an AK47?  
No no , now they want a gun for "protection" and then their 4 year old kid finds it, and tragic things happen!
Obama Care..dude! Leave us alone! WTF?
That is what I say..me, an immigrant soap maker who has no say on paper.
I do not vote or take part in rallies.
They are "them" and I  am me!
I would rather go unnoticed than have the government inoculate me and my kids according to "the law"..but it is not that way, is it?
Who makes these rules? How come gays can't get married? Why is goodness and truth so confused?

Did you know which country hate Americas most?
Pakistan..something like 80% disapproval!
Why would those misguided humans, who have dancing boys for entertainment and probably abuse them to some degree, why would those humans opinion matter to us?
I do not know.
Maybe it is isn't about allies and hated enemies so much that it is we are not friends..why do we have to be enemies?
Because without the rare minerals which we mine from that country, and many other countries, China being the one which holds most control.. our i phones would not be possible..we need to be there and make friends and set ourselves up to take more.. Nearly every item with an on-off switch contains rare earths.
Europium is a phosphor that creates a bright red on an iPhone screen. Lanthanum is used in the new hybrid batteries..There are ten pounds of lanthanum in every new Prius..
( I love the I phone, by the way)
Do you still think we fight for freedom?
Why, if we cared so much did our government not get involved in Uganda when over 300, 000 people were hacked to death, did not really much happen? That was only 20 years or so ago..
I know right!

You want to provide people with health care and then charge them $1000 a month? seriously, that sucks..
Here, let the soapie tell it..

You take half the money you make bombs with, set up clinics where well educated people go to work and train, and make it free! Pay the doctors well, very well, but make it free!!! Make University, free, make smart humans who understand science and art and logic and physics, get books back, stop controlling women!
Stop arguing and spending money on whether gays can get married and stop jailing people who grow pot, when city mayors are smoking crack and drinking beyond control..stop spending money on stupid shit! Make health care free, pay the doctors and teachers the most money and Governors less..
So, if your beloved citizens want medical health care because they have cancer from your genetically modified food, or some other poison (think about all the lawn spraying every sumer) you spewed for whatever reason, if they want to get treatment, they should walk in and get the best..
Not some fat chick behind a desk being rude because she has to type something with her long pink nails and miffed because  she missed dr oz that day..ha ha ha..
I know you have dealt with someone like that..

So far, que no me gusta Afordable Care Act!








back to school feels real

It has been a nice summer yea? We have all been working on something and it has been received. Received..yes..have, has, been, gotten, ther...
