Card of the Day – Page of Swords – Thursday, January 31, 2019

Tarot by Cecelia

Our curious Page of Swords possesses the type of restless mental energy that reminds us of Mercury, the planet of thinking and communication, which, tomorrow, will be making several aspects. We always seem to see energy creeping in the day before, and today is no exception, especially with a square forming between Mars and Pluto. Can you say power plays?

I believe if you stick to the personal challenges before you today, pertaining to your life and your work, then you will navigate all of this quite fine. The Page of Swords can be a bit impulsive, scattered and easily distracted, so if you want to achieve success with a project today, you may need to shut out the outside world. Seems like just the other day I was saying don’t poke the bear. With the Mars/Pluto square tomorrow, and the New Moon in Aquarius only a few days a…

Card of the Day – The Hierophant – Wednesday, January 30, 2019

Tarot by Cecelia

img_7150

Your spiritual beliefs are highlighted today, not only by the Hierophant card itself, but thanks to the Sagittarius Moon, Jupiter in Sagittarius, and a sextile building toward tomorrow between Saturn and Neptune.  Saturn demands hard work and Neptune is all about your hopes and dreams, and the optimism provided to you today should help carry you far in your quest for your true desires.

And what of your beliefs?  Sagittarius allows you to see the bigger picture, perhaps expand on your spiritual horizons.  This card is very much about those spiritual beliefs, and it is even possible under the Aquarian influence of the Sun and Mercury, that you are considering new affiliations which resonate deeply with your soul.

In the more worldly scope of things, this card represents teaching and learning, very much a Sagittarian thing, and, it could be as simple as hearing of massive school closings in the…

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau || Combination of Sage, Rosemary, and Melissa May Enhance Memory in Healthy People Younger than 63 Years

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

New treatment approaches are needed to prevent cognitive decline and dementia in the growing elderly population. Several traditionally used medicinal plants have been reported to enhance cognitive function and improve brain health through their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective properties. Among those plants are sage (Salvia officinalis, Lamiaceae), rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis, Lamiaceae), and Melissa (lemon balm; Melissa officinalis, Lamiaceae). Although study findings support the traditional use of these plants individually for cognitive function, no study has examined the clinical effects of a combination of sage, rosemary, and Melissa (SRM) on memory. These authors conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot trial to evaluate the effects of an SRM combination on verbal recall in healthy participants.

The study was conducted at Dilston Physic Garden Centre and BodyWorks Therapy Center in Northumberland, United Kingdom (the dates of the study are not given) and included healthy participants who were aged…

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau || Clinical Efficacy of Snow Fungus for Improving Cognitive Function

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Snow fungus (TF; Tremella fuciformisTremellaceae) is a mushroom with a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine. It is used for enhancing cognition, promoting healthy brain aging, and preventing neurodegenerative disorders. The bioactive polysaccharides in TF have demonstrated antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulating, lipid-lowering, and hypoglycemic effects. According to the authors, TF has not been studied clinically for improving cognition. Subjective cognitive impairment (SCI) is defined as having a self-perceived cognitive problem, despite cognitive test measurements within a normal range. This population is thought to be a target for early intervention to prevent future development of neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s disease. The authors conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of oral TF in participants with SCI.

Participants (n=75, aged 40-65 years) were recruited through local advertisements in Seoul, Korea. Included participants had ≥12 years of education and SCI, but no…

Card of the Day – Queen of Cups – Monday, January 28, 2019

Tarot by Cecelia

As the Scorpio Moon continues today, the Queen of Cups shows up to represent this highly-intuitive water sign. She is the Queen of Cool, and Scorpio is known for being cool-as-a-cucumber. This is a great energy and card for attending an interview for a coveted position for a new job. You could really nail the interview today. Remember, never let them see you sweat. Rely on your intuition, which will be stronger than usual, to help you navigate this Monday, as you begin your work week, striving for a drama-free environment.

The Queen of Cups is known for her kindness and generosity, and her compassion toward others. If this is not you, you will witness her caretaker, charitable side today in your midst. Under the Scorpio Moon, it is also possible to see the flipside of this Queen emerge, underscoring yesterday’s semi-sextile between Venus and Pluto, bringing out the more…

All the World is a Stage

The End of Time

We are all Actors on this Stage and every encounter within it is significant … whether we see the significance or not.

Human beings are the Actors who play the human game on planet earth. We have been playing that game for many centuries, and now is the time to awaken by moving away from this corrupt script.
I would much rather concern myself with spiritual matters and the real ancient human history but it seems history is being made right now and I really want to follow the play well enough not to be shocked by anything . . . so bear with me!

Card of the Day – 4 of Pentacles – Sunday, January 27, 2019

Tarot by Cecelia

I always try to stick with the most common of celestial happenings, but to explain our card today, I need to go one step further…Venus semi-sextile Pluto. It may become noticeable today that someone is more demanding of your attention, perhaps trying to keep you all to themselves.

Our 4 of Pentacles is a clingy little fellow, and this could come across as simple as your children asking that you look up from your phone and notice them, to a possessive lover who wants you to look in no direction but theirs. Some may view this as jealousy, but I see it more as an inability to share. This type of behavior may still be witnessed tomorrow as well when the Moon glides into possessive Scorpio. Just be sure that anything, or anyone, to which /whom you may be clinging, is worth keeping.

See you here tomorrow!
