VIP: I forgot to mention this in Januarys Newsletter: It is eight years since I raised any of my readings in cost. I did raise the House Party fee per person four years ago. I will not be raising any of my reading fees for packages again this year. However, I have raised the Skype and phone reads by$25. All Skype and phone reads are now $125 plus GST = $131.25

Here I sit at crunch time for the Newsletter as I procrastinated on working on it at the beginning of the month. Then abruptly things changed so quickly that Chat will not be as long as I would like it to be!

First let me update you all on the big news. I am back at the Russian Tea House. WOW some may say and some may say ‘great’ and some may say why’?


Let me explain. Next year, as I am not shy to tell anyone, I am going to start getting my Old Age Pension. 2018 will also be my Personal Year Nine called the ‘wrap it up year’ My intentions, or plan as I like to call intentions, was always to finish up the travelling shows next year and then just do local stuff and enjoy my home as I LOVE being here. However, my mortgage is due for renewal and as many of you know the mortgage guide lines are wicked if you are self-employed and single. Let it be known you are at the banks mercy and critical judgements. Three years ago I sold my acreage and even though I put down $87,000 on my new home they still refused me at the bank that had held my 10 year mortgage on my acreage. I was APPALLED to say the least.  However, as brokers can work magic so one did for me. But, I have had to pay a 4.5% on a 3 year fixed term  . As I opted to pay HIGH taxes and work TONS more I was now accepted for my mortgage on the condition that my business credit card is at $0 [WOW!! Thanks as we books shows way out] my personal taxes are FULLY paid and my only credit card I use for personal use is clear. Thanks Mr. Bank do not put too much pressure on me.


With the economy as it is I can assure you that my area is also under fire. Still getting reads but down by 55% this winter. A circumstance had happened in my life that created me calling down to the owner of The Russian Tea House who I have worked for twice since 1999. Asking her if she had any shifts for me it took less than 8 days for her to call, have me work one night and hand me a 5 day shift as I cashed out. For all of you who normally wait to see me at cheaper prices please know that for the winter you can come down here and have me read you.

My hours are: Monday 5pm to 10pm, Tuesday 5pm to 10pm, Wednesday Noon to 10pm, Friday 5pm to 10pm and Saturday 11am to 10pm.  Please ask for me when you arrive. If you do not ask for me you will be seated with anyone.


Now at first I thought WOW what a bummer giving up my free time that I OH SO LOVE in the winter months but it slowly dawned upon me that by doing this I was able to get all the taxes paid that the bank insists upon. However, it has also made me speed up my cancelations of the travelling shows. So Fort Mac, Grande Prairie, Lloydminster, Vegreville are all gone. I have a MASSIVE decision to make in my life as to the local shows but I am pretty sure of the choices I’ll make here for the last year. I just have to discuss it with someone before printing it here. J

Happy???? You bet.

BUT!! All this took a toll on me and for the first time in probably 15 years I was sick for one day. Actually sick. I had to stay in bed on my one day of the week off and you can be assured that annoyed me greatly as it backed up the house fixing.  But I am back up on my feet and catching up to where life needs to be.


Other than this January has been a whirl wind of change on a dime LOL.


I had started working out in December and was up to 7 kms a day of walk/run plus abs, row boat etc. etc. This now has to take a bit of a back seat much to my dismay. Dropping it down to 3-4 days will have to suffice now as opposed to 6. Just as my body started to show the 6 weeks work out changes. Bummer, but I am pretty sure I can work out a wee bit harder on the days I do. J


So my rest is over. Work, that funnily enough I commented on when I said in last month’s newsletter that in the past 8 years all I had focused upon was my business and based upon the fact this is my Harvest Year and you ‘reap what you sow’ proof is definitely in the pudding’ so to speak and this is only January. Thank You Angels.


Sorry to hear that Whole Foods chose to back out of the contract of building stores here. Particularly when your construction was almost done. Funny how, when our oil roars up in price that you wish to join us but will back out quickly when the economy is sluggish instead of riding it through with all of us. Well let it be known we have done without you till now and we will do without you in the future. Oil will go back up as will the economy, but I will stay shopping where I always do even if you come as greed always brings back the greedy.


Enjoy February as the days get longer and longer, the month is short and life is precious. Meditate and thank the Universe every day for what it brings to you as you create your life. Remember you are the driver of your life so steer well. 


My Comments on the News:  So Madonna has thoughts about blowing up the White House and publicly speaks about it. What if Clinton had won and Trump said that? Why are Starbucks windows being smashed by the protesters? Why do all the people who refuse to let Trump rule for a year and see where it takes them proving that they are the violent ones? Chelsea Handler created the New York march and when asked why she hated Trump she replied ‘he’s a racist’ then when asked if she would have the first lady on her show she replied ‘hell no, she cannot even speak English properly’. WOW!! Who is racist here?

These Clinton supporters are ignorant based people and again I say Canada stay out of it. Stop having a mob mentality, it’s not going to make him quit. Accept change and see where it goes. I had said to someone [a good friend of mine] that I was sure Trump would create a bond with Russia and they would get rid of Isis. I have said this so many times to him. Yesterday Trump called Putin and lo and behold that discussion took place, I also predicted Trumps win in each of my Newsletters leading up to the election. I never backed down and look forward to what he brings in his terms. I know I seem to be in the minority but most people just follow the crowds thoughts, not their own. I have never been afraid to make my own choices of thought and stick with them. I just cannot believe how people react themselves after bashing Trump. Stop burning vehicles, clashing and rioting and saying stupid ignorant things. The things you are protesting over are the exact acts you are creating. Unbelievable. Looks like what you perceive to see in Trump is really inside of you all. Perhaps in reality you need to judge yourselves first before others.

Thank You Donald for pushing through the Keystone pipeline on your third day in office. Thank You for the jobs that many Albertans will now be able to return to as this takes place  in new negotiations. Hardisty AB is celebrating and by the look of the news you do not have many haters there. So to all the Trump haters that return to their oil patch work when this gets underway remember that Obama did nothing for you in the 8 years and had Clinton won the same would have happened. So if you really cannot stand Trump maybe taking jobs he creates is not a good thing cos you cannot protest and then say ‘oh but I need the work he creates’. Think about this.

CAT COSTS:  I had to get sick on senior's day darn it all. Based upon that I had to shop with no discount. Luckily though another special was on for Solomon's strips to test his blood. Cost for 100 was $65.00. [as opposed to $80] Got to the health store for cat food and bought enough to last me till the last Thursday in February. Tinned food was $74.58. Raw meat was $36.64. China’s dry food treat that she seems to survive on for 4 bags was $29.08 and that was the cat expense month. No vets were needed and thank you Angels for another cheap month. Total cost for all 3 cats was $205.30

If you are thinking of getting a pet please know that from the cute stage, they grow with personality to adult stage. Animals feel with unconditional love from their souls. They get attached and used to their homes. If you cannot give up 12-18 years and maybe longer, do NOT get a pet. It is not a companion till you find a mate, have a child, decide to move to an apartment that will not allow pets, it is a companion for life. They also need dental care, checkups and GOOD food. Not this cheap, no nutrient food that I see so many people buy. Your pets will suffer later just as you would if all you ate was junk.

Look at rescue places for loving animals. These pets will not only be grateful, it's almost like they know you saved them and love and adore you for it. Think before you add to your life. Can you give this type of commitment? If the answer is yes then enjoy looking for your new companion. Think older if you can, for some reason older pets are harder to re-home and they are much sadder as they wait not knowing what it was they did to be removed from the homes they knew. 


My Coincidence this Month:  I think the biggest things that happened this month was the incident that somehow got created that made me call The Russian Tea House and from that move I am now able to create without stress and worry my taxes, accountant billing, credit cards payment and not have to use my overdraft for long. SO HAPPY and content about his. I do not wish to go into detail about the reason why I called the tea house, just know that I see this as The Universe creating a mis-understanding and me using the journey to get where it took me. LOVE when I look back at things and say ‘wow it shocked me at first but now my reaction created what I needed to have come into my life’. JUST WOW is all I can say and thank you. May my year continue as such.

To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime.- Romain Rolland, Nobe


Year of the Rooster


2017 is the Year of the Rooster according to Chinese zodiac. The Year of the Rooster will start from Jan. 28, 2017 and last to Feb. 15, 2018.


Rooster is the tenth in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign. The Years of the Rooster include 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029...

Rooster is almost the epitome of fidelity and punctuality. For ancestors who had no alarm clocks, the crowing was significant, as it could awaken people to get up and start to work. In Chinese culture, another symbolic meaning of chicken carries is exorcising evil spirits.

Lucky Signs for People Born in Rooster Year:

Lucky Numbers: 5, 7, 8
Lucky Colors: gold, brown, brownish yellow, yellow
Lucky Flowers: gladiola, impatiens, cockscomb
Lucky Directions: west, southwest, northeast


Personality of the Rooster

People born in the Year of Rooster according to Chinese zodiac have many excellent characteristics, such as being honest, bright, communicative and ambitious. Most of them are born pretty or handsome, and prefer to dress up. In daily life, they seldom rely on others. However, they might be enthusiastic about something quickly, but soon be impassive. Thus, they need to have enough faith and patience to insist on one thing


Independent, capable, warm-hearted, self-respect, quick minded

Impatient, critical, eccentric, narrow-minded, selfish

Love Compatibility of the Rooster


Perfect Matches: Ox, Snake
If combining with people in Ox or Snake signs, most of them will obtain everlasting and harmonious marriage lives. The connection between them can become tight. In addition, couples of these combinations always become enviable ones in other people’s eyes.


Avoid: Rat, Rabbit, Horse, Rooster, Dog
They have a large chance to obtain a tough and unstable love life if they get married with people with the above five signs. During the whole life, they always meet difficulties and troubles. However, they don’t have enough abilities to solve them because of their born different opinions and attitudes with each other. Lots of divergences will damage the relationship finally.


Fortune in 2017

2017 turns to be the Ben Ming Nian for people with Chinese zodiac sign Rooster, which means bad fortune is going to knock their doors. It would be quite hard for them to make breakthroughs in work although many efforts are given. Accordingly, the income is also not favorable on account of being affected by career, but if they make smart budget, they could make ends meet. There will be no big problem in their relationship in 2017, as their tolerance and tenderness will diminish all the bad luck. Health wise, they are suggested to take regular physical examinations.


Which Type of 'Rooster' Are You?

People born in different years of a same zodiac sign vary in personality according to Chinese Five Elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. See what kind of Roosters you are.

E-Mail: Custom Form Submission from website

Hello, wishing you a wonderful New Year! My birthday is 06/25/1973. My long time boyfriend is 05/13/1977. My son is 07/21/2005. I am curious at to what 2017 has in store for us. Thank you!!! S.


Good Day S,

Funny thing happened here! The person who sent me this e-mail had it sent back to them as if it was not delivered. Funnily enough it had come through to me so I guess this was the Universe creating the meeting. Thus she called me. From this conversation it turned to a phone read and then to my delight an in-person read.  Based upon this I am still printing this e-mail as it was first in the queue.  However I will just cover her son from his birth data so that she can advise him if she chooses to.


Your son is a Life Path 8. Keep him focused as Life path 8’s go two different ways. The first is they are anxious to get out into the world for their love of materialism. Often as young people they take on after school jobs and love making money. They also spend it as fast as they make it. If they are in this category they usually either drop out of school or do not complete a higher education. They are NOT stupid at all. However, they are forever expanding and often spread themselves too thin. Thus their lives often result in one or two bankruptcies and you will note they are jack of all trades master of none. They need to be self-employed as they hate being told what to do.

The second is that if properly focused  in their young years and their higher education is paid for they make excellent lawyers, business people, politics, and almost any business that can be brought to an empire if they wish. LP8’s can almost attain anything they put their minds too as long as they build and focus, not jump in quickly and then expand too fast.

Exercise and VERY healthy foods are a must for the highly energetic 8’s. Marshall arts are good for them when they are young so they learn mind focus early.

I hope this helps with your son and I also hope to see you again when you are ready for another read. Have a great winter and spring.
