Medical marijuana is both a preventative and treatment for many human afflictions, but smoking is not a healthy or effective way to ingest its medicinal properties. Cannabis edibles are much healthier for you — which is just one reason why cannabis cuisine is taking the world — and the internet — by storm!

Ayahuasca was a sacred medicine. Now it’s a global ‘it’ drug, and the trendiness is threatening the source. This is the newest form of cultural appropriation to date … and for what? Bragging rights by New Age entrepreneurs? Caveat emptor!
This card might come up when you are denying your inner voice telling you there is something to worry about. You are acting like everything is fine, but deep inside you have doubts you ought to address. You may be putting on a brave face when secretly you are afraid. Or, this card may come up when your fears or nightmares have become seriously disruptive in your life, like when you’ve developed a phobia (irrational fear) or have become insomniac. This card can also come up once you’ve finally done something about the fear, yet still worry about your feelings. Perhaps you have told someone what you are afraid of, or wrote about your worries in your journal. Confessing your fear has freed you from it to some degree. It might be therapeutic for you to work with your fears and nightmares — write them down, analyze where they come from, peel away the layers to learn about yourself and grow. So, for today only, it’s time to start getting to the roots of your worry. There is something you’ve been pushing down or trying to ignore, but it’s not working for you anymore. Your worries creep in when you’re trying to sleep, disrupt your appetite, create so much noise in your mind. A good way to start facing what’s bothering you is to write it down. From there, you can decide if there’s something you can do about it, or choose to just let it go.

See this well-dressed woman standing in this beautiful garden? She got there by working hard and is now enjoying the fruits of her labor. She acted with discipline, taming her impulses like she’s tamed the bird on her arm. When this card appears, it may be a time to act with such discipline. You will accomplish much by quieting your animal instincts. It could also be a time for self-reliance, for taking charge of your own future. You may be craving more independence. This card could also mean that you have already accomplished much. Now, it’s time to indulge in rewards that you deserve. Pamper yourself. Take yourself out on a date. The Nine of Pentacles could also be telling you that you give off the impress of not needing anyone else, or could represent somebody else that gives that impression. So, for today only, reward yourself for all the good, hard work you’ve done lately. Be proud of what you’ve accomplished and treat yourself well! By making the effort to celebrate now, you’ll be reinforcing your good work and replenishing your energy for even more success in the future.
I got a new house with a teeny tiny backyard (roughly 15 x 10) that ends at someone else’s side wall. When you look out the dining room window, all you see is brick. So I thought it would be nice to make some planters in which to grow climbing green things (so far, got cucumber, tomato, and various peas). But it would also be nice to have someplace to sit out back when we’re grilling, so enter the planter-seats. The real thing ended up remarkably like the digital plan. I’m impressed, and for that I have to thank Patrick, who made this plan into a reality.

The Nine of Cups reversed is a card that indicates disappointment or smugness. You may be feeling emotionally empty, despite your efforts, or that you can’t be happy until you have what someone else has. It may be that your current path will never bring you the joy you seek and that you need to look for it elsewhere. Alternatively, happiness may be very close at hand but you need to begin noticing all you do have, instead of what you lack. This card could also indicate that you are very happy, but you are using your happiness in ways that hurt others. You may be so self-satisfied that you are not noticing the feelings of those around you. Your bragging and smugness may be very unappealing to those around you. Today, delight in your senses and emotions.

What an amazing world! What an amazing thing to be alive! Choose to be happy today; it really is a choice.
After a quiet time with a void-of-course Taurus Moon, there will be a noticeable change in mood when the Moon dashes into Gemini early this morning. The only aspect she makes for close to twenty four hours is the New Moon in Gemini during the afternoon. One of Gemini’s best things is the knack for quickly processing masses of information and make adjustments accordingly on the fly. This New Moon could hit many people with more data than they can handle, especially if they have strongly fixed sign charts. Most of us would benefit from taking a few days to let things settle enough so we can determine what’s valuable and what’s not. Do your best to pace yourself today and be firm about not taking on too much at once. 🌠☽♊🌠
Today Venus in Aries exactly squares Pluto in Capricorn at 19°. It will not be easy to accurately…
This Knight is riding in full course, as if scattering his enemies. In the design, he is really a prototypical hero of romantic chivalry. He might almost be Galahad, whose sword is swift and sure because he is clean of heart. The Knight of Swords represents skill, address, bravery, capacity, defense, enmity, wrath, war, destruction, opposition, resistance, ruin. There is, thus, a sense in which the card signifies death, but it carries this meaning only in its proximity to other cards of fatality … but not today. This Knight is in alignment with Gemini, which is synchronous with the Sun and Moon in Gemini tonight. Gemini characteristics include intelligence, independence, freedom, enterprise, adaptability, communication, curiosity, persuasiveness, amusement, variety, fickleness, superficiality, impatience and reactive to circumstance. What does this all mean for you? This Knight is often taken as a person who is young, confident and articulate, but who may act impetuously. The problem, thus, is that you might be carried away by unrealistic expectations. You may come up with strong arguments for your position, but your impatience and impulsiveness might work against you in the end. So, don’t be too quick to rush in and engage in conflict. Scope out the lay of the land first before you open your mouth.
ROUTINE TESTS SUCH AS PAP SMEARS AND MAMMOGRAMS ARE IMPORTANT, BUT DO NOT RELY SOLELY ON THESE TESTS. IT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT TO LISTEN TO YOUR BODY AND NOTICE ANYTHING DIFFERENT OR INEXPLICABLE. YOU DO NOT WANT TO JOIN THE RANKS OF CANCER PATIENTS WHO REALIZE THAT IT IS TOO LATE. HERE ARE SOME SIGNS THAT ARE USUALLY OVERLOOKED …
Forgiving myself, or another, the survival center of my brain stops releasing stressful chemicals in my body. I can now let go the past, and with it anger, guilt, and sadness. I can live more fully in the richness of the expression of life.
