Going thru old files page by page looking for a legal doc that might be mis-filed, I’m reminded that my husband and father in law fell prey to many investment scams. Lee died in 96, Dad lived just 3 miles from me. I invited him to live with me after I stopped by one day after getting no answer. The rule was he would “call me each day to make sure I was ok.” He said he heard the phone ring but he was doing the daily mail so he didn’t answer.
Um, he’s 84, what kind of “daily mail” was he doing? I asked if I could help him and he had me sit at the dining table. It was covered with dozens of scam mail (this was 1999) solicitations and he spent much of each day filling them out and sending them in. That and attending “business lunches” which were those free restaurant meals for seniors who sit thru the investment opp presentation. The rest of every day was watching news and Jerry Springer, then more news. He came to live with me in 99. I asked if he could help me feed the squirrels each day. Continue reading
WELCOME TO THE JANUARY 2021 HORIZONS. Here’s to hindsight being 2020. The big changes of 2020 forced me to make big changes in my own life. At first, when the pandemic arrived and the income tanked, I didn’t think, “Oh phooey, what am I gonna do now?” only because I’d learned to have a Plans B, C, and D-Z ready to go. Still, change is hard. With one income stream halted, it also halted a lot of expenses and freed up time. I didn’t take long to debate, “should I wait this out or jump on Plan B right away?” I knew that if I could begin doing mundane daily chores and look at them as spiritual practice, in awhile my thoughts would clear, leaving room for guidance and new ideas.
“Show me a way,” I asked, “Make me notice opportunities where I‘ll find meaningful and fun and satisfying work.” I can’t ask that, tho, unless I’m prepared to do my part: look at everything that comes after that request as part of the puzzle piece of the answer.

Here are the horoscopes.
Aries – (March 19 – April 18)
A beautiful energy energizes you until the 6th, enough to meet professional challenges that are waiting for you under the powerful effect of the cluster in Capricorn Sun until the 19th, Mercury until the 8th and Pluto all month long.
Your finances occupy your mind, Mars, your planet, tumbles in Taurus from the 7th to the 31st and comes to awaken your interest for your money especially that which is related to your profession. From the 20th, there is room for your projects, your friends and your desire for expansion! Your nature should appreciate these energies resolutely turned towards the future. Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius boost the first decan by offering a beautiful anchoring and a superb evolution! Neptune still titillates your intimate life, second decan, a desire for introspection? This month foreshadows challenges and a long-term vision. Continue reading
WELCOME TO THE DECEMBER 2020 HORIZONS. Ok, by now you’ve read the December Horizons already but in case you didn’t, the December issue is now online and here are the horoscopes. The big news in my life (I mean besides having the west woods I’ve known for 37 years completely removed in June for new construction — gahh! ) is the new neighbor moved in and is pleasant and nice. We wave and say hi when I’m gardening in the west yard and he steps onto his porch to let the dog run out for a few minutes. If you’re on my Facebook, you read about all the antics. We talked about the vines in the trees along the property line, he said if I’d cut them, he’d pull them down once they dry out. That made me notice the vines definitely hinder natural tree leafage, so they’ll be glad to be free. He’s got a big fish tank AND has city water, but my well water is excellent. I let him fill his tank from my hose. Since he’s got city water, when power goes out after storms, he still has water, so now so will we hehe Continue reading
The December 2020 Horizons is now online at http://horizonsmagazine.com/fb/12-20/mobile/index.html. Here are the horoscopes.
Aries – (March 19 – April 18)
An ideal of life and projects are in the spotlight, dear Aries! At the end of the year you are always focused on this desire to rise to your ideal. The Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius, until the 21st, infuse their desires and optimistic thoughts! Mars, your planet, at home, gives you unparalleled energy.
Since I work alone the past 27 years, I hafta be the one who motivates myself. I developed a 3 step system that works for me. 1. At end of each work day, I make a To Do List for the next day. On the left, I write everything I have to do that day. On the right, I list everything else I have to do. 2. Before I go to bed, I read over the things I have to do the next day. I spend a few moments seeing myself breeze through getting it done. 3. When I wake up, I bring to mind the day’s tasks and again run it through my head for a few minutes. By doing these 3 steps, I’m not only psyching myself up for the work, I’m pre-paving a fast and easy job.
I’ve been doing a lot of yard work as the weather gets cooler, and really loving it. The west woods was cleared of palmettoes and underbrush I’ve been digging up and moving a dozen plants and trees a day over there from elsewhere in the east yard. By the time I’m done, I’m SORE AND ACHEY and ready for bed. I thought I’d share My Magical Healing Bed Process since that’s when I remind the cells of my body what we’re there for. My process is to Self Talk Myself Into Healing using helpful phrases. Here’s the script I use, try it for yourself. You’ll find comfort and relief. Continue reading
