Well today has been totally shot to Hades…..

I am hot, tired and most of all aggravated! First of all, I have had enough problems today with all the electrical issues at my cabin. Now I want the bickering to stop about the psychic vampire deal and I mean now! It is over, it is done with. I explained why I asked and I did not expect all the comments that were received on this matter. We have established I am not a psychic vampire. So there it is official I am not a psychic vampire. It was a screw up, so let it go. Eleanor, I am having a long talk with you when I get off the computer today.

Now since this day has been a total screw, let’s pretend Monday is tomorrow. How does that work? I have played with the air conditioning man and also the electrical contractor. Everything is now fix and I was presented with a bill for $1100.00. I kid you not. I told Lord M what company to use to do the wiring and the a/c, do you think he listened, NO! He used a different company and the company I use does not do warranty work on any of the necessary repairs that needed to be made to do. Simply because they do not do business with the Carrier people or Link’s electrical contracting and sales. I tried my best to do the warranty route. When I called the people they recommended, it was going to take a least one of them two weeks to work us in. With the heat indexes in the 100’s again, there is no way we could have stayed in the cabin. I be damned if I am moving back in the rental. Also with my health condition, I cannot tolerate the heat, it would have killed me. So I went with the men I knew and trusted. They let me pay half now and half at the first of the month.

So why am I telling you this, I took out a working capital loan and this has busted that all to hell. We either sell a lot of merchandise between now and the first of the month or else we need some donations. After yesterday, if you don’t hate me that much that is. I hate to ask but I have learned a poor person has no business sticking their heads out of the ground. If you would like to help, I would great appreciate it. You will find the links below to the store and also make a donation. The remaining balance on this bill is $541.45. Any amount would assist me out or any purchase.

We will resume our postings tomorrow. I am going to go stick my head in a hole and not come out till then.

Love ya,

Lady A

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of August 5 

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of August 5

Sarah Bartlett, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

With delightful Venus moving into laid-back Libra, we can perhaps all take a break from the tensions of life and live a little.

Time to show your flirtatious, carefree side and let love be unconditional too. Although Mercury is still retrograde and there may be delays and computers need fixing, this is also a time to reflect, restore self-belief, re-invent yourself and re-affirm your romantic intentions.

 

ARIES

With the current planetary changes, you’re reminded that you’re a bit of a paradox: willing to give, but also withholding. Ask yourself these questions.  Is your life fulfilling? Are your true desires being met? Are you distant with others because you’re so insecure in yourself? Answer these questions honestly, and be rewarded.

 

TAURUS

Relationships are intriguing yet often frustrating when we have to guess how others feel about us, aren’t they? But now’s the time to take action, take the odd risk in love, or throw a little caution to the wind. The timing is right this week, and that means the enchantment which you truly long for can at last begin.

 

 

GEMINI

Single or attached, be prepared for a romantic debate this week. Whether you’re in a long-term relationship or in the middle of a series of dates, make your needs clear to your partner or admirer. This is one of those weeks when sign-posts and new roads beckon. And love, unpredictable as it is, begins to appear down the pathway ahead of you.

 

 

CANCER

It does seem that romance, glamour and perfect people are usually only found in fiction, and the real-life dance towards that ‘happy ever after’ ending is a road to disillusionment. But right now, a renewed acceptance of love’s strange ways means you begin to accept that a relationship is not an end in itself, but a never-ending journey of ups and downs.

 

 

LEO

As Venus still reminds you that life is about enjoying yourself, you now feel liberated and rebellious. But your partner or new admirer also begins to realise that you’re not just a fun-loving extrovert, but also a vulnerable soul who needs true respect for your extraordinary talents. So stir the ingredients of love and bring it all to life.

 

 

VIRGO

You and a lover or new admirer need to understand each other’s desires and decide whether a compromise can be found. However, if you both want it all your own way there’s little chance of ever coming to a satisfactory middle-ground. But if you can just put yourself in the other’s shoes, that kind of compromise will see rewards beyond your wildest imagination.

 

 

LIBRA

Venus stirs you back to romantic life as you cruise into a week of negotiating and fun-loving times. Personally, you know you’ve got to do something to make a relationship move forward.  But the next few weeks will give you time to define your love goals. So check out your true values and start loving from the heart.

 

 

SCORPIO

There are admirers out there who are welcoming the chance to celebrate the new, self-motivated you. By the end of the week, you know what you want to change – your lifestyle.  The communication channels open again, and you can now ask the very questions you’ve been avoiding. Make sure you gently demand to be loved the way you truly want to be.

 

 

SAGITTARIUS

This week, it seems your need for personal space prevents true togetherness. The price is high, but the changing cosmic influence will give you the chance to probe the depths of your true intentions and follow them through. Make sure others know the real you, otherwise in the weeks to come, misunderstandings will abound.

 

 

CAPRICORN

If you’re willing to put up with the same old routine, then question whether you’re actually denying your right to some fun?  An attitude such as ‘I must take responsibility and show that I can make it alone,’ means you are denying the right to sharing and being loved too. By opening up to others, you’ll be liberated.

 

 

AQUARIUS

There’s some enlightening ideas coming through you right now. And that’s because you’re loving yourself, a little bit more, every day.  You’re slowly seeing that to take a chance on yourself, might actually make you feel secure inside. with Mars still retrograde in your sign, even though you feel a little defensive, you’re becoming a lot more self-contained.

 

 

PISCES

People seem full of themselves, lovers eager to take control, and you, perhaps still fooling yourself that you don’t need to take a risk here and there. But you do. This is a week when you begin to truly know what matters to you. It’s also a time when your awareness of your love values is truly in focus. With a little patience, you’ll see fabulous results in the months ahead.

Your Weekly Karma Forecast: August 5 – 11, 2018

Weekly Forecast: August 5 – 11, 2018

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE*  There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

Weekly Forecast:  August 5 – 11, 2018

8/6 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Jupiter (imagination & truth):

This is a powerful energy and with that comes the necessity of discernment – it provokes you to get lots of things accomplished and that’s a good thing, however, beware of taking on more than you can actually handle. Having said that now, if you need that little “push” to get some things done, this is just the energy for you. It carries with it the optimism necessary to allow you to go beyond your norm and stretch in new ways. Sometimes there can be a tendency toward self-righteousness with this energy, but try to make it “self-directed” and you will benefit greatly. Walk your talk, embody your Truth. However, if you turn it on others, demanding they believe what you believe, you may have some difficulties. Be open & receptive, have a don’t-know mind because you never know what you may learn along the way that could really help you, now or in the future.

8/7 ~ Uranus Rx 2* TAURUS (1.6.2019):

This is a once-in-84 year occurrence! And it still has to retrograde back ‘n forth over the last 2-degrees of Aries and first 2-degrees of Taurus in order to complete the ‘Crossing Borders’ that we are already feeling and the whole world will feel by Spring 2019. Uranus is a collective planet and so affects many people and takes 7-8 years to accomplish its mission in each sign. It will awaken the Taurus department of life (House) and stimulate any of your planets in Taurus/Scorpio or Leo/Aquarius (by default). Also, I’d say here & now is a good time to reflect on the ‘liberating ordeal’ you just went through over the last 8-years as it stimulated your Aries department. Once it is truly into Taurus, you can start to reap the benefits and integrate the recent, radical shifts that you’re Identity & Purpose have been through and the focus, and thus the lessons & blessings, will now shift to the values & priorities that support that newly awakened Emergent Self and how that works on the ground, in the body, on the Earth.

8/7 ~ Venus (feminine & receiving) ~trine~ Mars (masculine & giving):

Venus rules your values & priorities where relationships with love & money are concerned, your inner Divine Feminine that innately knows how to co-create with nature, what to cultivate and nurture to full development. Mars rules your desire nature and your inner Divine Masculine, which is responsible for maintaining your personal boundaries, getting your ideas into the world and negotiating on your own behalf. When you are channeling both through you in a balanced way, what you create and how you move through the world becomes a beautiful dance or interesting story. The trine is a blessing of ease & grace, an easy-going energy that paves the way for balance & reciprocity and encourages independence within the context of relationships. Communication is usually smooth at this time and exchanges can be mutually beneficial. Any relationships started under this influence have a good chance at success whether personal or professional.

8/8 ~ Mercury Rx (communication & self-expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core essential Self):

This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others (if you need to). This is a good time to travel if possible too. However, if not physically, then mentally and certainly within your own area, you will take in more information per square inch than usual. Pay attention! You may even gain the much-deserved recognition from others that you have worked so hard for.

8/8 ~ LEO Gate of Power/Cross Qtr:

This is the Mid-Point of whatever you got going 6-months ago, in Feb 2018 at the Aquarius Gate. Do you remember “Crossing Borders” 6-months or 1-year ago? (many of you got those readings then and can refer back to them now for new insights). Think: 9-mo gestation process for year 2018, you have nurtured & developed something over the last 9-months that is about to need some space to exist. Aug/Sept is all about preserving what is growing strong, solid, useful & nourishing … while releasing density, weight & excess to be composted in to something more useful in the season to come. It’s a time of cleansing & purification, as well as gratitude & celebration, in anticipation of the Fall Equinox season of Harvest. Some call this the Pre-Harvest. You can get a jump-start on assessing the year if you’ve completed your “clearing & releasing” process. If not, this is the final *purge* in preparation for the Harvest Season. The final Leo/Aquarius Eclipses will help! The Eclipses are considered “course correctors” ~ whether you’re a little (or a lot) off ‘course’ ~ and they are “intensified” solar & lunar energies pouring around and through you (no matter your level of consciousness). Things will be particularly intense now for all of us, but especially those of you with Leo/Aquarius/Taurus/Scorpio activated in your chart.

8/9 ~ Venus (values) ~square~ Saturn (foundation):

This energy can make you feel cool & detached with loved ones. It is time to ‘take stock’ of your relationships and really evaluate the level of balance between giving & receiving. Business or personal – relationships must have a balance of give & take. You may feel more aware of your true independence in life and start reevaluating the need for certain relationships in your life. This energy pushes you to dig for your own fortitude & determination to live according to your own values & priorities and corrections or adjustments may be necessary and fairly obvious at this time. You may feel lonely, depressed or disconnected but it’s just the Universe forcing you to question or assess your current relationships, how you interact with others and how you allow them to interact with you. It’s good to periodically evaluate even the strongest relationship and check the foundation. Don’t give in to (ego-based) fears, focusing on the lack & limitation or what is not working, but instead build on your strengths and honor the goodness you’ve created together, as well as in your Self. This is the best time to be alone and reflective because the insights you acquire through this process will help you in the future.

8/11 ~ Mercury Rx (expression) ~square~ Jupiter (truth):   (2 of 3:  7/9 ~ 8/11 ~ 8/28)

This energy challenges you to integrate your smaller vision with the larger vision for your life. On one hand, you can see the big picture in new ways, but on the other hand, you may not be very interested in the details that bring it about. This is another good one for expanding your consciousness and thinking outside the box, but as the insights come into your conscious awareness, be mindful of the steps it will take to make your ideas a reality. This activation is also great for course-corrections where your ideas are concerned and will open you up to learning something new or bring in a crucial piece of information, just keep in mind that you will have to stabilize anything you start and probably have to review some details down the road because of something you overlooked in your enthusiasm for the new Truth revealed from within.

8/11 ~ LEO Super New Moon/Solar Eclipse:

We get eclipses twice a year, every year, so there is always energy for change, transformation & radical shifts. What changes approximately every 2-years is the sign energy, and thus, the lessons & blessings. We spend a couple of years mastering those lessons, like now 2017-18 in Leo/Aquarius and there are reverberations from the years 2008-09 and 1998-2000. Also, remember that it was one year ago we had the coast-to-coast eclipse cross the US, how has your life changed & evolved since the last round of eclipses blasted through your life?

If the Eclipses have altered your course (internal or external) and you have released any rigidness with the Aquarius Lunar Eclipse (7/27), then this Leo Solar Eclipse will help initiate the new in a clean, positive, and hopefully fun way! It may be time to *Lighten* UP!  Get creative, have some fun and dig in to anything that is weighing on you and find a NEW way to express it.  This is the annual New Moon of the New YOU and Eclipse says New You to the tune of 10-20 years! We are currently amidst Mercury Retro in LEO (7/25-8/18) which can enhance or extend this period of experimentation with the “new” on one or many levels. I think it will be good for tweaking creative projects but if your focus is on self-love, and how you define that for yourself, it may also allow you some customized (for you) opportunities to change your thinking in some way. The world is shifting at such a rapid pace that I feel it is more imperative than ever to know your own *Heart*. Many of us have lived our lives guided by “survival” rather than what is truly in our hearts. And we have discovered, either directly or from observing others, how this can backfire on you. Consider that anything you do, whether for yourself or the world, needs to be heart-centered and based in *love* (Leo’s domain) and that which endures, succeeds ultimately. When we do things with genuine enthusiasm ~ humble & pure ~ we can literally Inspire, Awaken & Uplift others and that creates a certain magnetism that creates an energetic flow. The purest form of leadership is to lead by example, so deepen your connection to your own Heart, share your Light (without attachment) just for the joy of sharing and that will encourage others to shine their Light. It’s contagious!

Alrighty, The Brief Pause Was Because the Electrical Man Showed up…..

The contractor showed up earlier than I expected. He even called the office to see where I was at. He was down there waiting on me. He looked at the problem and has left to get the parts he needs to fix everything. While he is gone, let’s skip to whatever one is really interested in the Horoscopes, Tarot and Runes for the day plus a few other goodies. I imagine he will be back shortly so we will try to get as far as we can.

We will continue with the Hints & Tips if not today, tomorrow, sorry about that guys. Now let’s get this show on the road again,

Oh, and a funny thing, he wanted to know what his horoscope was for the day, lol!
