A warm welcome to all my new readers that have subscribed to my Newsletter.
CHAT BEGINS:
Chat may be slightly small again this newsletter as I had another VERY busy month. This wraps up my year though with out of town shows. By the time you read this I will be in Grande Prairie. Right now I am in Fort Mac Murray about to start the first day of my show.

As this will be the last Newsletter of 2018, can you believe it? I will announce now that starting in 2019 I will be adding two new columns. The first will be VcToria’s Amazing Vegan Kitchen. Here, every month I will post a recipe and some comments. However on Facebook I will be starting a group with the vegan content. This will be a group where no question is too stupid to ask. I will help those who wish to transition over to a healthy plant based life style or if you are vegan join the chat and help newbies. I will also be doing a vegan restaurant review with my friend Jackie, as we visit each of the vegan restaurants in Edmonton and surrounding areas. January’s Newsletter will begin with a review on Padamani’s.
The second column will be my Astrological Chat. I will be talking about a placement of one of the twelve planets each month. Most likely I will add a question from a reader here. I will be creating these for January 2019 Newsletter. PLUS of course my favorite that I always talk about, the numerology of the year. As you know by now I am in a Personal Year [the season as I like to call them] Nine. My wrap it up year. WOW!! What a year to let things go. I will be covering that too next month.

For Reiki Level One and Two the dates will be March 2nd and 3rd 2019. To sign up please use this link for the deposit. I will confirm and send you your information. Deposit for Reiki Level One and Two March 2019 Please note I only take four students per class. Lunch is included. Level Three will take place the following weekend.

I was accepted for The Witchery Market. I will be doing mini psychic reads there on December 15th 2018 10 am to 8 pm and December 16th 2018 10 am to 4 pm. Address for the market is 10433-83rd avenue Edmonton, Alberta. Same street as the Farmers Market, so you can make a day of it if you come on the Saturday. This will be my last local show until July 2019.

I said last month I would let you know how my new glasses work at night for driving. A WEE bit more clarity, but it would appear when you have 20/25 vision that all is well. I have always been able to drive at night and I credit food for keeping my eyesight in excellent condition. Last month I wrote about how my eyesight restored itself with my choosing to do two years on raw foods. What an experiment that was!

My beautiful cat Luke that was taken has still not been found. I still have a $1000 reward out for him. For a picture that you can copy and download please go to my September 2018 Newsletter. If you know where he is please let me know. The Alternative Universe September 2018 Newsletter

Peter, the newly adopted 18 year old senior is fine. He cost me a LOT at the vets as you will see below, but he is gaining weight and eating TONS and running around the home. My neighbor is looking after him daily with two pills for his hyperthyroidism so he does not have to go back to rescue each weekend. I will post an updated pic in January. Turns out after his blood collection he does NOT have 4th stage kidney disease as I was told [in writing] his kidneys are just fine, as is the rest of him. His heart beats fast because of his hyperthyroidism. That’s all he has. Solomon who passed a year ago had this and basically all you need is to give two pills a day and they are fine. The heart will return to normal, his weight will pick up and then we can see about his remaining teeth as he drools terrible. He also had a urinary tract infection that was running all through his body. That is being treated with the 14 day antibiotic shot. He will be returning for another blood check on December 3rd so I will update his condition again next month.

So as I said November was busy and it started out with early month reads. Then as I mentioned above Peter went to the vet BUT China had started drooling and licking her mouth. I knew her teeth were bothering her so I took her as well. Sure enough she had to have a tooth out and have them cleaned. Plus she had this little hole in the roof of her mouth. They took x-rays and it appeared she had eaten something that pierced her upper mouth with a wee, wee, tiny hole and it had gotten infected. She was also given a 14 day antibiotic shot. She has healed very well and is no longer drooling nor seems to be in pain. [$890]

I bought a supply of hemp seeds as I LOVE the feeling of the energy they give me. One of the early things I will cover in my new vegan column next month is hemp seeds and the value of them. I always buy in bulk so I bought the $65 bag from my supplier who delivers.

Off to my first show in Lloydminster, Alberta on the 8th. I had been told this show was good, but for me it was not. The person who put it on was very nice and I have no complaints about her coming around and being easy to deal with. Maybe too easy. As vendors seemed to take advantage of it. I was told no more than two psychics would be at the show. There were three. When I spoke to her about it she said ‘oh well sometimes they do more than is on their contract’. I advised nicely that she speak to them about it and remove the added stuff as other vendors would not appreciate this. She did not. Next the show was COLD, all vendors complained. The vendor who was supposed to be next to us had texted to her she would be late. Arriving at 4-5 pm!!! The show started at 10 am. We had this ugly empty space next to us all day. Vendor arrives and was NOT happy with the space and refused to set up there and was given another space. In the middle of the show. Heck, shows I do would not allow this. However, apparently this is common in the cheaper shows. Next a vendor was stuck in front of the loading out doors and my corner fee was refunded to me. We all had to wait for this vendor to tear down and load up on the closing of the show. I tell you, there were PISSED vendors. Thank You Universe for showing me that this show will not be on my to-do list next year. Funnily enough, any show that I have chosen to give up I had phone calls during them to book reads that would have given me the same profit that I made at the shows LOL. I am not blind to signs at all and during this show when I got a call from clients who had family in from out of town and wanted reads that I had to turn down I knew once again what the Universe was telling me.

The following weekend I came back to Lloydminster, Alberta for the Xmas show I have been doing for nine years. As per usual it was well organized, all vendors set up, very warm and toasty, and delightful to do. Even though I paid three times the amount of the previous weekend show for my booth I made almost triple the profit. [After expenses] No phone calls were had during the show to ask for reads. This is a show I will be keeping going into my next nine year cycle.

When I am back to back with shows I tend to book reads lightly, if at all. I chose to do two only. The rest of the time I spend doing groceries, laundry, e-mails and getting ready for the road for the next show. Of course spending as much time as I can with China, Venus and Peter. China rarely leaves my side when she is in the house. She knows when I am leaving. She actually cries her little heart out and buries her head into my neck. It breaks my heart and I hold her long and hard. They are so human like these rag dolls. [That is her breed]

Well as I mentioned above I am in Fort Mac Murray right now the 23rd and will be returning on the 25th very late. I leave again on the Wednesday for Grande Prairie where this newsletter will go out on November 30th.  I am in GP till December 1st at the Evergreen Center Xmas show in case you did not get the personal e-mail. I have not been to GP for two years and will only be up your way once a year. Come and see me for mini psychic reads. See what 2019 holds for you.

That is it for Chat. I love to look back at my year and say to myself ‘was it positive? Were my actions in the ‘now’ creating growth? If my answer to the first question is ‘no’ them I have to change my actions. Luckily my answer is ‘yes’. I look forward to setting up my next nine year growth period as my One Personal Year comes in 2019. I will cover all of yours in the next newsletter. Stay tuned. :) Meditate and see life as a blessing.

PS: I will be in Vancouver over Xmas. More on that in the next Newsletter.

CAT COSTS: HOLY COW WHAT AN EXPENSIVE MONTH!
Let’s cover the vet bills first: I talked about China and her teeth above so her entire process came to $890.53. Next I de-wormed Venus with Profender at the cost of $31.57. She had blood work collected and tested for her kidney disease last month. Then she had a re-test for hyperthyroidism. Both were fine. Her numbers were down for the kidney disease and she shows no sign of hyperthyroidism at all. Cost of that for the re-test was $41.90.
Now for Peter. Based upon his frail state I was given some pills for him to relax so that this time when we collected blood he would be stoned! Basically he had blood taken, analyzed, was put on an IV to hydrate him as his infection in the bladder caused his water intake to just go straight out. His entire exam and tests came to $528.90. Oh yes, prior to China’s teeth work, she had to have an exam and that came to $84.00. On this bill I also have $82 for the pills for Peter to relax him for his next visit.

Now the food and stuff: Peter still stinks so I bought a non-rinse shampoo as he did not take to having a wet bath! Cost $12.58 I also bought some wipes to keep him smelling nice. Cost $12.58 I bought some minerals for his health, lickable ones that unfortunately he does not like. Cost $14.16 I also bought some Purica pain relief that comes in natural form for his little body to keep him pain free Cost $31.48. Next kitty litter came to $107.19. Dry food came to $$41.98. Treats came to $3.45. Raw food came to $70.48 and lastly tinned food came to $136.65. Total cost for keeping VERY good care of my babies was $2,089.45. YUP I kid you not. Every year I get one VERY expensive month.

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 their homes.

My Coincidence this Month: Another month where I do not think I had a coincidence as I was too busy. BUT!! All that I am busy with interconnects with choices that I made or things that happened to me. So, the last thing that happened was a story that I wrote about at The Little Market. I was there as a vendor in October. I had been there in June. I asked for the same booth and was told to e-mail her later in the year. I did so. However, upon arriving, my booth had been moved over one section. BUT!!! I was now next to The Witchery people who befriended me during the show. We actually exchanged neat stories. They told me to visit their next show in October and apply for December if I liked the layout. Something I would not have done had I not met them. I applied and was accepted. I look forward to seeing where this takes me. This is how a positive life goes. Keep doing what you love, follow the signs and it all fits.
Another thing that has happened all year long are the CLEAR and concise messages I got to know what shows need to be left behind as I trek forward :)

AWARENESS
WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT?
A person who follows a vegan life style [plant based for those who do not know what vegan is ] produces 50% less CO2, and uses 1/11th oil, 11/3rd water, and 1 1/18th land compared to a meat eater.

We can make a difference simply by eating less animal products and replacing them with plants.


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
