The Truth About Cats

  • There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.
  • Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this.
  • Cats are smarter than dogs. You can’t get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.
  • In a cat’s eye, all things belong to cats.

  • “One cat just leads to another.” — Ernest Hemingway
  • Dogs come when they’re called; cats take a message and get back to you later.
  • Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments, but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.
  • People who hate cats, will come back as mice in their next life.
  • Cats aren’t clean, they’re covered with cat spit.
  • A dog will jump on your lap because he likes you; a cat will jump on your lap because it’s warmer than the floor.

Daily Feng Shui News for Nov 26th – ‘Pins & Needles’

We’ve all experienced the tingling sensation known as pins and needles. This is actually the result of defective neuro-transmissions, and it’s especially prevalent if you’ve stayed in one position for a prolonged period of time. One effective holistic treatment that I personally know works is to take magnesium supplementation. Magnesium is a mineral that is essential for an optimally working nervous system and for enhancing blood circulation. Start taking this supplement and the only pins and needles you’ll have are those you use for sewing.

Your Charm for November 26th is The Caduceus

Your Charm for Today

The Caduceus

Today’s Meaning:

You will find you have within you the ability to resolve all conflicts and disagreements with regard to this aspect. You will find an eloquence you did not realize before.

General Description:  

The staff of Mercury was given to him by Apollo in exchange for the lyre. The rod was endowed with the remarkable power of deciding all quarrels and bestowing wonderful eloquence upon its possessor. Mercury proved this when he saw two serpents fighting. Placing the rod between them and using his eloquence he reconciled the serpents, who then embraced each other, and becoming attached to the rod formed the caduceus. The pine cone is credited with health giving power, and the wings symbolize speed and the flight of thoughts between friends. This ancient talisman was supposed to be a charm for prosperity, rendering its possessor healthy, wealthy and wise.

Your Animal Spirit for Nov. 26th is The Frog

Your Animal Spirit for Today
November 26, 2013


Frog  Rivet! Something in your life needs cleansing, and frog is here to help. Frog is traditionally associated with rain—that powerful force of Nature that  can flood, nurture, heal, or drown. If Frog appears in your reading, you’re being asked to examine what is stagnating in your life—then ask Frog to help you let it go. Need to cry? Jump in the shower and let Frog Medicine do its work.

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Nov. 26th is Venus

Your Deck of Ancient Symbols Card for Today


Venus represents those qualities we commonly associate with the female/yin persona. Venus traits include fertility and the drive to create, unblemished beauty, love, passion, and togetherness. The occurrence of Venus denotes the dominating presence or need of the qualities listed above. While often very subtle, Venetian influences may have a negative impact unless they are balanced with an influence that can temper the drive of Venus.

As a daily card, Venus suggest you should allow your more feminine traits to guide your actions through this period. Subtlety, efforts to bring people together and allowing your creativity to run free are likely to serve you well at this time.  However, like Mars, the powers of Venus are very strong and  can do more damage than good if not balanced by other influences.

Today’s Tarot Card for Nov. 26th is The Hermit

The Hermit

Tuesday, Nov 26th, 2013









The challenge of what has traditionally been known as the Hermit card is to be able to recognize a teacher in a humble disguise. This font of mysterious knowledge will not make it easy for the student to acquire his wisdom, as it takes time and long contemplation to fathom what he knows. He often speaks wordlessly, or in ancient and barbaric tongues, communicating with the elements, animals and Nature herself.

While the hourglass was an identifying feature on the earliest Hermit cards, more modern ones have shifted the metaphor, showing more or less light released from his lantern. In either case, the Hermit card reminds us of the value of time away from the hubbub of civic life, to relax the ego in communion with Nature.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, November 26th

We want to open our minds and expand the spectrum of our experiences as the illuminating Sun anxiously aspects visionary Jupiter. But meanwhile, the exacting Virgo Moon reflects our need to separate useful facts from insignificant ones. Additionally, we can feel the conflict as the practical Virgo Moon narrows our perceptions while the inspirational Sagittarius Sun widens our horizons, making it difficult to maintain an objective perspective.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

There is an undeniable gulf between your thoughts and your feelings today. You prefer to rely on relevant information and clear thinking instead of letting your desires dictate a more subjective agenda. Although sticking to the facts sounds good on paper, the truth is that you’re better off now if you also listen to your intuition. Balancing your head with your heart helps you to fulfill your highest potential.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

It is wise to speak up once you know where your thoughts are taking you. But blurting out a partially formed idea only complicates your life today. Usually, you can slow down and think things through, but your impatience may get the best of you now. Your attempts to sidestep authority or bend the rules won’t work. However, you might be pleasantly surprised if you just acknowledge the limitations imposed on you by others. Simply relax and trust the process.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You might not be clear about everything that’s happening now, yet you can get to the bottom of a complex situation if you focus on what’s important. Although others may think that you’re just putting on a show, you don’t need to let their assumptions distract you from your real work. Remember, it’s not sensible to set aside your strategy if you believe that your plan will succeed. Just don’t push too hard; taking small steps is smarter than overreaching and then having to admit you were wrong.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You wish that everything would happen on time today, but you may be so obsessive about your schedule that you accidentally miss a potentially memorable experience. Letting go of control isn’t easy now, but it can be a very powerful antidote to your current inflexibility. Quit trying so hard. When you allow your energy to flow with the currents, magic follows you everywhere you go.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may want additional recovery time, but you might not be able to find it today. You are being pulled in multiple directions now, yet the real message is to reconnect with the most practical routines. Even if you feel slightly out of step with what’s going on around you, this probably isn’t a smart time to shift your course. Concentrate on your immediate needs while surfing the waves of change.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The Moon’s return to your straightforward earth sign is a reminder to be as simplistic as possible in your approach to life today. Making some changes on the home front may be helpful, but your time is at a premium now. Nevertheless, frustration arises if you let your own needs go unfulfilled for too long. Divide your day so you can take care of your chores first and then move on to more enjoyable activities later.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You can feel the weight of your responsibilities continuing to grow today, tempting you to retreat from non-critical social activities. Still, you are likely to participate in pointed discussions about the very real issues now facing you and your friends. Ultimately, you must decide your level of involvement. Don’t blindly accept the rules that someone else makes for you; follow your own intuition, instead.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your survival instincts kick in today, prompting you to concentrate on an all-too-familiar unresolved issue. But simultaneously, waves of hope wash onto your shore, making your goals appear closer than before. Don’t give up; extra hard work will be rewarded. Reaching for satisfaction in your dreams can make a huge difference in the days ahead. What you now imagine has the potential to become your future if you want it bad enough.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You have a natural inclination to aim for the stars, even if an unexpected change in circumstances throws you a surprising curve ball today. Your reaction may be immediate, but don’t assume that making a quick decision is better than carefully thinking through all of the alternatives. Others are eager to listen to you and will respect your thought process as long as you consider a variety of possibilities prior to committing to just one.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are in your own earthy element today because the practical Virgo Moon harmonizes with profound Pluto in your sign as it continues to slowly deconstruct and reconstruct your life. Thankfully, there’s no reason to develop several different contingencies; one concrete strategy is enough. Remember, you don’t need multiple options now; you only need the chance to follow through with a plan that makes sense.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Circumstances might force you to think about an old emotional issue that’s still bothering you. Even if you attempt to evade the problem today, you will just be lured back into the melodrama tomorrow. Since you may not feel very comfortable in this situation, play through the possible conversations in your imagination prior to facing them in real time. A bit of advanced mental preparation now makes it easier to speak from your heart.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may be feeling a bit more independent these days, but you still must stand up to someone who tries to be authoritative in order to put you in your place. Thankfully, you aren’t willing to do as you are told if you can envision more appealing alternatives. Don’t take the easy way out; the course of least resistance might not lead you to your goals. Once you know what you want, do whatever is necessary to fulfill your dreams.

There’s no way around it: You’ll have a serious choice to make about your intimate life this week. Are you happy with the one who shares your bed? If not, admit it.

Stop lying to yourself, Aries — you know you’re only trying to protect yourself. It’s time to access your courage and be willing to share what it is you take great pains to avoid.

Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

A deep conversation with your mate will bring you closer this week. On Monday, Mercury and Saturn will connect in your relationship sector, allowing you to make a realistic decision that’s long overdue. This may have to do with a change in how you handle finances together. Perhaps you’ll take on a joint account or loan, or one of you will help dig the other out of a financial hole.

Are you and your new sweetheart ready for a commitment? This week, you may decide that the answer is a resounding “yes!” Expect a firm decision between Monday and Wednesday.

No matter what’s happening in your love life, Thursday will be a day of mutual indulgence. Go ahead and spoil the one you love — just a little!

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Love might be an adventure this week, and if so you’ll feel determined to make the most of it. If you’re feeling a sense of wanderlust, you might decide to take matters into your own hands and arrange an impromptu trip with your sweetheart. You and your love may have talked about visiting an exotic locale that’s interested you both for quite some time, and it’s possible you will decide by Saturday that now is the time to go for it. Living your life out loud is your motto, Leo, and this week you plan on doing exactly that.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

A creative project you and your sweetheart are working on may be your focus this week. Expect to make great strides in this endeavor, especially by Wednesday. You might also talk more about ways to have fun with your lover — both in and out of the bedroom. What hobbies or other recreational activities do you enjoy together? Do you have a shared passion besides each other? This will be an ideal week to explore whatever it is that gives you both joy as a couple.

Libra Horoscope

You’ll see the possibilities that lay ahead.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

When it comes to your love life, you’ll be dead serious about whatever you say to your mate this week. If you make a promise, you have every intention to keep your word and you’ll go to the ends of the earth to make sure that happens. If you don’t mean exactly what you say, then you’re not going to say it. A significant pledge or decision with your lover might take place by Wednesday, and if so it’ll be something that adds depth to your already solid bond. If single, you may yearn for a deeper connection with someone on Saturday and Sunday.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may feel overly optimistic about finances on Thursday, and as a result you may purchase an extravagant gift for your partner. Alternatively, you and your mate could decide to make an investment based on hope and faith. Take a step back and make sure you’re not putting your money into something that’s not secure. A little risk may be fine, but throwing caution to the wind altogether may cost you both — big time. If single, you might suddenly meet someone on Saturday who makes your knees weak. Delicious!

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

When your lover is your best friend, you have a special kind of blessing in relationship. On Wednesday, you’ll likely feel you’ve won the cosmic jackpot in that sense. The capacity you have to experience social simpatico and a true camaraderie with your lover will be incredible. Then, on Thursday, you and your partner might decide to learn something new together.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

With the Moon touring your 8th House of Intimacy from Monday through Wednesday afternoon, you may feel deep desires stirring inside of you that will be impossible to ignore. Perhaps you’re longing to be with someone, but your fear of rejection keeps you from initiating any potentially meaningful contact. Or, it’s possible that you’re in a relationship but feel extremely vulnerable about revealing too much too fast. The Moon in this part of your chart will help break down your walls. Surrender.

Pisces Horoscope

During these days you may forge a deeper connection with your mate — or at least you’ll try. One thing is certain: You’ll have an almost intuitive grasp on what your sweetheart is feeling early in the week. Use it to nurture your bond rather than make your lover feel exposed. On Thursday, you and your love can expect a magnificent and socially fulfilling adventure. Wonderful!
