Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Saturday, November 17, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

It’s back! The 8 of Swords is here once again to remind you to get out of your own way, get out of your head and limited ways of thinking, and to open your eyes to the possibilities. But, wait! Today is the first full day of Mercury retrograde, and it is in the sign of Sagittarius, the one that brings us the BIG Picture. Very often, when we see the 8 of Swords, we feel powerless to find the way out of a particular situation. I will be honest with you, between today and tomorrow, I believe it is possible this can go either way. Everyone, of every sign, is affected by Mercury retrograde differently. So, while it is not unlikely that you can achieve a breakthrough in one area, you may feel as though you are in a complete fog in another. Mercury will remain retrograde through December…

Pāli Word a Day for November 17, 2018
pāramī — completeness, perfection, highest state 

Maraṇenapi taṃ pahīyati
yaṃ puriso mamidanti maññati.
Etampi viditvā paṇḍito,
na mamattāya
nametha māmako.

At death a person abandons
what one construes as mine.
Realizing this, the wise
shouldn’t incline
to be devoted to mine.

Sutta Nipāta 4.812
Translated from Pāli by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Asian Foodstyles | Tamagoyaki & Onigiri Breakfast Recipe


3 Eggs (optional +1 yolk for deeper color)

Chopped chives/spring onion
1/4 tsp Mirin
1/4 tsp Soy sauce
1/2 tsp Sugar (optional)
Furikake (optional)

You can also add 1 tsp sesame oil (1/2 tsp if using strong, pure sesame oil) for an interesting taste (normally with sugar). I do this sometimes when I get bored with regular tamagoyaki.


1/2 cup Japanese rice

1 cup Water Furikake (any kind)

Do not rinse the rice too much as you’ll want to retain much of the starch for onigiri. Make sure to soak the Japanese rice for ~15 min before cooking. Put your flame on high; once the water starts rapidly boiling, set the flame to low/simmer. Once cooked, put it on high for 10sec, and then kill the flame. Let sit (lid on) for 10 min before opening. Or just use a rice cooker.

You can add 1 tbsp sesame oil (1/2 tbsp if strong sesame oil) to the rice for a change – similar to how some Koreans do their crispy rice balls (jumeokbap?). If you can find small umeboshi (pickled plum), you can stick one inside the onigiri. Japanese umeboshi is best, but are normally pretty large. Chinese pickled plums on the other hand are normally smaller (but more sour, and I’ve never seen one that’s pitted).


The ONIGIRI MOULDS | I use are from Daiso and come in 2 sizes per pack. For bigger onigiri, you can use any other container e.g. a Japanese sandwich mould. Get one online here (

The TAMAGOYAKI PAN is a simple one I got off Ebay for around A$50 (Japanese brand, made in China, but sturdy). A bit expensive for a small pan, but this one is surprisingly quite thick and from experience distributes heat really well. It is optional and you can use a regular round pan, but obviously a rectangular tamagoyaki pan makes things a whole lot easier. Get a similar one (

Holiday Foodstyles | The Ultimate Five-Cheese Macaroni and Cheese 

My mother passed down her macaroni and cheese recipe to me about 20 years ago. I have made my own tweaks since then to create what is now known as my Ultimate Five-Cheese Macaroni and Cheese. Made with a blend of sharp cheddar, Monterey Jack, mozzarella, Pecorino Romano, and parmesan cheeses, this dish has become a favorite of every single person who has tasted it. Yes, this recipe is a little labor intensive, but it is well worth it!

Get the written recipe:

I normally cook this dish in glass. For this video, it was cooked in my Lodge 3-quart enameled cast iron Dutch oven. I have also had success with cooking this dish in a regular, ‘well-seasoned’ cast iron skillet. If cooked in glass, increase your temperature to 400 degrees. Also, the deeper your dish, the longer it will take to cook. If your dish is shallow, it will take less time. So, you may want to do a test run to be sure of the appropriate times for your cookware.

SOUND ENERGY HEALING MEDITATION (1 hr.) | Theta Wave Binaural Beats 432 HZ​

432 Hz, known as Verdi’s ‘A’ is an alternative tuning that is mathematically consistent with the universe. Music based on 432Hz transmits beneficial healing energy, because it is a pure tone of math fundamental to nature. Usage of headphones recommended.

The Universal Music of Sacred Geometry

According to Brain T. Collins, a musician and researcher, the standard pitch (A=440 Hz) does not harmonize on any level that corresponds to cosmic movement, rhythm, or natural vibration. The greatest musicians, such as Mozart and Verdi, based their music on the natural vibration of A=432. It’s true that it is only 8 vibrations per second different from the standard tuning, but this small difference seems to be remarkable to our human consciousness.

There’s a growing musical and metaphysical movement for recovering optimal integrity in the music industry and spirituality through the 432Hz tuning. In April 2008 Dutch journalist Richard Huisken founded the ‘back to 432 Hz’ committee, claiming that this original tuning was used in ancient cultures and is found on antique instruments like the Stradivarius violin.

One step forward,Venus Direct, then Mercury Redux

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

November 16 Venus turns direct today. The blessed day is finally here.The backwards-looking re-evaluating “Underworld” 42 period is over. So many relationships blew apart, so much heartbreak. 

Venus Direct astrology love Tara Greene Venus turns Direct in Libra
lets talk about love

Now we must retrace our heart steps back from Libra to Scorpio {-Venus re-enters Scorpio on December 2nd}  to our souls deepest desires until December 18 until Venus bypasses 10+ degrees Scorpio where she went Retro and we can head out again into a fresh new love field. 

Give thanks to Venus for what you learned during this time. Reflect while Venus is still  Stationary for a couple of days. Let me know how you felt with Venus retrograde.

Meanwhile, Mercury also turns Retrograde on the 16th @ 13+ degrees Sagittarius

ropaka — sapling

Pare ca na vijānanti
mayamettha yamāmase.
Ye ca tattha vijānanti
tato sammanti medhagā.

There are those who do not realize
that one day we all must die.
But those who do realize this
settle their quarrels.

Hau’ōli Aloha Pō’alīma

Aloha a me kā maikāʻi kākahiāka. Hau’ōli Aloha Pō’alīma a pau. Kā hopena pule, ūa ʻaneʻi pela ke hoike nei i kekāhi lēʻalēʻa i loko o kā lā me kā ‘ōhana a me nā hoa aloha. Noho pomaikā’i a hīkī i kā lāʻapōpō, he nūi ke aloha.

Daily Astrology Mars in Pisces-Rain Man

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

The desire to separate with Mars in Aquarius at the 29th most critical degree Inconjunct to North Node at 29 Cancer is strong. Mind games versus feelings. We must find a way to connect. The alienation from the tech tools we use nerds to be offset by the nurturing feelings of emotional safety from the great Cosmic Mother.

The Moon is still in Aquarius after a relatively quiet day yesterday,

Moon squares Scorpio Sun

people may be very stubborn and moody today and we are half way to another Full Moon November 22 which is American Thanksgiving and the day when the Sun enters Sagittarius.

ropa — plantation 

Na tena ariyo hoti yena pāṇāni hiṃsati.
Ahiṃsā sabbapāṇānaṃ
“ariyo”ti pavuccati.

One is not noble who injures living beings.
One is called “noble” because
one is harmless towards all living beings.

Twenty-First Century Warfare: Secret and Silent Frequency Wars

Captain's Blog

It’s imperative that Humanity understands the reality of warfare in these times when advanced and secret technologies are used against us on a daily basis.

From WiFi and cell phone frequencies to televisions and microwave ovens on up to the most exotic sonic weapons—it’s all disruptive and even lethal to the Human body and mind.

Because these weapons are silent and invisible, the war-loving aspects of society have been able to experiment with these methods for decades but the time for secrecy and these covert attacks on the life on our planet has come to an end.

What harm does it do? We can see the carnage if we will just look. Whales and dolphins washing up by the hundreds on beaches, bleeding from their ears, flocks of birds falling from the sky with no outward trauma, multiple forms of cancer rampant… it’s endless.

Humanity must take responsibility for researching…

Card of the Day – 8 of Pentacles – Thursday, November 15, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

It’s all in the details.  Yesterday, when we saw the Justice card appear after many months, I said we would be taking a look at it for a while, and all of the work entailed to return your life to a fair and balanced state.  Today is no exception, and certainly a good time to be working diligently at putting things in order, especially in light of Mercury’s impending retrograde beginning tomorrow through December 6.  Mercury retrograde is not a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants energy, so spending today reviewing your projects, whether work or personal, and taking the time to dot your “i’s” and cross your “t’s”, can prove very beneficial in the next several weeks.

Paperwork at this time may be in order, perhaps even legal or contractual, or maybe you are just looking to tweak your resume for that next big interview.  Whatever it is, even trying to clear your desk…

528Hz Sound Meditation

EVENING MEDITATION (3 hrs.) | Vibrational adjustment of your Self and sanctuary … Release to be released, and so it shall be!

528Hz to manifest and attract deep positive energy into your life and to release negative energy that we carry unconsciously.

Math scientist Victor Showell describes 528 Hz as fundamental to the ancient Pi, Phi, and the Golden Mean evident throughout natural design. Vic Showell and John Stuart Reid (a pioneer in acoustic research and cymatic measurements) have proven that 528 is essential to the sacred geometry of circles and spirals consistent with DNA structuring and hydrosonic restructuring.

Daily Words of the Buddha for November 14, 2018

Pāli Word a Day for November 14, 2018
patāpa — splendor, majesty

Na tāvatā dhammadharo
yāvatā bahu bhāsati.
Yo ca appampi sutvāna,
dhammaṃ kāyena passati
sa ve dhammadharo hoti,
yo dhammaṃ nappamajjati.

One is not versed in Dhamma
because one speaks much.
One who, after hearing a little Dhamma,
realizes its truth directly
and is not heedless of it,
is truly versed in the Dhamma.

Card of the Day – Justice – Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

Justice in all forms is available today. It is important to note that this card has not been seen since April 7, and that its presence today will be felt for some time. Justice itself can refer to anything legal, negotiations, compromises, even feeling like a referee at times. Balance and fairness are of the utmost importance, and this is where it falls for most of you; you need to find that necessary balance to make life fair.

Expect to see people being held accountable for their actions as we begin an unfoldment over the coming months which is only in an infant stage. While you can not help but notice these things taking place, it is more important to focus on that which will restore the necessary balance in your own life.

See you here tomorrow!
