In times of global financial uncertainty, one constant remains – people want to look their best. During the Great Depression, cosmetic sales overall allegedly increased by as much as 25%.

Highly Recommended: Kras Croatian Chocolate!

Kras Croatian chocolate

 

My friend Ines Stefanovic (check out her perfume and other goodies blog All I Am – A Redhead) recently sent me a box full of Croatian chocolates made by the Zagreb-based food company Kraš. I am American and have Taurus in my chart, so opening a package of never-before-tasted chocolates was a little like opening a present on Christmas morning. Since everyone everywhere always likes to see someone give a shout-out to their hometown/country, I thought I’d do a brief review.

 

I was sent five different candies: Continue reading “Highly Recommended: Kras Croatian Chocolate!”

Sometimes you just look at a Full Moon and know why the word lunacy shares the same root word as lunation. The Full Moon at 17 degrees Capricorn of July 8th/9th (exact July 8th at 11:07 PM CST) is opening the gates of… somewhere dark, deep down below. The Full Moon is in fall in Capricorn, not feeling at home here anyway. The Sun at 17 Cancer will be widely conjunct fixed star Sirius (given how bright Sirius is, I’m generous with the orb here); the Full Moon will be tightly conjunct Pluto retrograde at 18 degrees Capricorn. Both Sun and Moon square Jupiter at 13 degrees Libra, forming a configuration known as a cardinal T-square. Layers and layers of energy and intensity. And you better believe it’s pissed off, rage filled energy with Mars included at 22 degrees Cancer, also in the sign of its fall and struggling to find healthy expression. Mars is conjunct fixed star Pollux, known for telling stories most would rather not hear (Julian Assange has Mercury conjunct Pollux, for example).
