THE ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE DECEMBER 2019 NEWSLETTER
ISSUE 218





A warm welcome to all my new readers that have subscribed to my Newsletter.

CHAT BEGINS

As I left off last month early, let me pick up from there, but before I do, if you are reading this on November 30, trust me I am jumping for joy.

Why? YES, YES, YES Today I am in Grand Prairie about to drive home at 6 PM and then yes yes yes I start my winter sabbatical. I will not have to leave my house till late April 2020. Of course I am doing full package reads from home, but that is all.

What else does this mean? I will cuddle and groom my cat and do my winter projects within the home, watch TV and generally choose time to be whatever I want it to be.

I will not be going away, call me silly, but China, my last cat is all alone and unless I have shows out of town I prefer to spend my time with her. However, as I have mentioned many times before, I will not be getting any more pets until I have traveled some.

November flew by. The Lloydminster Christmas show filled all expectations as per usual. Thank you Lloydminster. I will see you next year.

Make It was a disappointment, it once again showed me the arts and craft shows are not for me. It was a four day show, but the first two were very slow. If it takes two days to make your booth, and as an experienced vendor, this is not good. You should make your booth in day one. Then Saturday, day three GREAT, but again day four slowed. Lets hope next year the dates of two shows I do are not on the same weekend and then I will not have to choose nor look for another show.

Grand Prairie's show will be reported on in next month‘s newsletter, as I have set the newsletter to be sent out on the 30th, but scheduled it on the 26th.

GIFT CERTIFICATES: Do you need gift certificates? they make great Christmas gifts. You can purchase any denomination and the receiver can then apply them to any purchase from my web store. They can also be applied to any readings, or used at any shows I do. No expiry. No cash refund. See my web store or call or e-mail me.

Last month I told you I would update you on getting my full last name on my drivers license and I am going ahead with this. Thus I will be getting my passport. For those of you who read my memoir 'Then Now and Forever' by VcToria Gray, might have realized that a legal issue would have been the outcome of the end of the book. WELL!! I contacted a really good friend of mine in Montreal and she went down the court house for me and sent me my legal papers. All has been settled and these papers were given to a lawyer I hired here and I have been given the go ahead that no legal issues remain YES!! I can now travel almost anywhere I wish to.

Reads in person and phone reads were plentiful in-between shows, plus my web store orders were all filled and mailed as they came in. It would appear my Personal Year One [that I am in now and will be till December 31st 2019] has shown me that business is taking care of itself, money flows when needed, and all the work I have put into life on the material side, and most importantly the work I have put into shifting my energy, is blessing me thoroughly. I will talk about Personal Years in depth, as I always do in January 2020 Newsletter. You will have the option to figure yours out with the math that I offer.

I took in a medical demo at one of the spas looking at all the new stuff that is being offered for skin products etc, etc. Not impressed with how people speak who own businesses. UM and ER is not a qualification for getting any award when you are selling. Speech should be eloquent and free flowing. As words on a page are. If you cannot speak properly you should not be in sales. It has a big impact on how many people see your knowledge. They are also NOT words in the dictionary.

Took in my monthly vegan review with Jackie at Gidgets in St. Albert. See below for my opinion.

Somewhere in the month my grandson came over for supper and a visit. I cooked for us as we took in news of what each other is doing.

I then took in the seasonal buffet at Padmanadi, the awesome vegan restaurant that has been around for over 25 years here in Edmonton. I went with my friend Janice, who I had not see in person for ages. GREAT to catch up and you may note that my vegan review with Jackie is now being replaced with Janice. See below in the Vegan Review column.

BIG snow storm on a weekend that I had off, so I curled up, cooked, had the fireplace on all weekend and listened to my cat complain about how she could not go out and why was the weather the same at both doors plus her kitty window.
Then it warmed up, the snow melted and China was her happy self again as she walked around the top of the fence.

Got to Fountain Tire and had GREAT service over at Callingwood Mall for my winter tire install. I also took the opportunity to change out all three windshield wipers. That apparently should be a yearly thing if you drive every day in the winter.

Then as I mentioned above, off I went to Lloyd and while there had supper with Jackie as she attended the show as a vendor as well. Not a big choice of vegan food anywhere in Lloydminster, however we were able to eat at the only Indian place there and got some decent non-animal food.

Whilst at Make it I was VERY impressed in the BC vendors who traveled all the way here with vegan cheese, [yes I bought and will be making cranberry/brie phyllo pastry rolls] vegan perogies [ I bought 4 large bags and they are to die for] vegan chocolate, [yes I bought] and lastly garlic hummus. By the way ALL vendors who had vegan products sold out of them, including the fast food truck that offered pesto, kale spaghetti.

I have two phone reads left to do, and then off to Grande Prairie for my VERY last gig of the year as I mentioned above.

I was going to do one of those cheaper, smaller shows that I had booked and paid for on December 7th and 8th, BUT when I e-mailed them for the time set up, 'assuming' like a professional show does, that we would set up the day before, they informed me that set up was in the EARLY morning of the show, and you had TWO hours to do so. TWO HOURS?? I cancelled and told them to give my booth to someone else.
All vendors arriving, having to find their tables, set up, move the vehicles and THEN work all day. No thank you. I should have asked, and from now on will only stick with professional shows that know what the vendors need, not people who put on these unprofessional shows and just want the money.

Then funnily enough the Universe showed me that I had chosen correctly, as I then received a phone call asking for two large reads to be booked on the 8th. Thank You Universe for all you do for me.

That is it for now, but please note that the group meditation that you do in the privacy of your own home Is on New Year’s Eve. What a fabulous miracle that the Moon will be in Pisces. See the 'void of course' under the astrology column for more information. That’s about it for this month. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you all next year and make those New Year Re-soul-utions suited to what you need to feel/enter/change/shift in your life. Allow me to help with that in next months Newsletter. Stay tuned.

CAT COSTS:

China: I did one last pee check on her at the cost of $63.90 and all was well. She has pee'd nicely all month and her stress level is down. Once the last show is done, as I leave her home alone I am sure all will be fine for the winter months.

Now the food: Raw food: I had enough. Tinned food came to $41.78. A treat that she hated came to $3.67. No dry food was needed.
I did not need any kitty litter as she likes to go outside to pee and only uses the litter boxes if she does not go outside. I still have tons of kitty litter left. 

Total monthly cost was $109.35. I tell you it is SO cheap just to have one cat.


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 Opinion this Month: ???????: I really am down to a crunch on time to do this column this month. If I wished to harp on something I did above. Choose to speak properly. UM and ER are not words. They sound like you do not know what you are talking about and truly you need to ask yourself why you have this speech 'glitch'. Why are you not secure in yourself. YES, listen to Trudeau [our Prime Minister for those outside of Canada] and how many people ridicule this. An example of what you too sound like if that is part of your talking.
This is MY opinion and you can 'choose' to agree or not.

DECEMBER 2019 ASTROLOGY PLANETARY INFORMATION

CHIRON

In the natal chart, Chiron is symbolized by the “wounded healer”. It represents our deepest hurts, and our efforts to work with ourselves to heal.


Chiron takes approximately 50 years to come full circle. As it moves along, retrogrades at time, where you will feel lessons of ‘hurt’ repeating, it connects to the power of what you need to recognize that needs ‘fixing’ emotionally. Around the age of 50-51 you will have the rerun. Much like Saturn, this return will allow you to KNOW if you have resisted or moved forward to heal.


How Chiron affects our lives depends on if you resist, or allow you to shift with the lessons. Resistance will create many life times to come to repeat history in this one.


Often we will feel ineffective and encounter times in which we feel we need to prove ourselves to others. Do not be fooled by this, as you need to only prove to YOURSELF that you have self-respect. As Chiron moves around, take the time to allow the wounds to open and be healed. These will be emotional wounds.


Right now Chiron has moved in Aries. This move happened on February 8th 2019 after Chiron had been in Pisces for 8 years. For many, this last 8 years may have been one of deep depression? Opening up the psychic area? Following a spiritual journey? No matter what, you would have had some DEEP emotional wounds being brought to the surface. How you faced them shows how you feel now. During this last 8 years yoga, meditation, vegan and so much more has surfaced.


So now till April 14th 2027 we will feel the flight of Aries. The LETS DO IT energy. Watch for the opportunities to surface with your new found emotions. However, since the world energy will also feel the power of Aries we will go one way or another. Let us hope that we see the energy ‘healing’ the planet rather than destruct it. Aries is strong enough to do either.

My Chiron sits in my 11th house in Capricorn: This placement is associated with the emotional wounds from early on in my life. The astrological sign that Chiron is in, will dominate, but the house area will show in what area the personality is motivated and where to put effort.


In the eleventh house, it indicates rejection from peers because of being ‘different’. Feeling discomfort in large groups, so you only associate with people of like mind. Having a capacity for leadership. As I focus backwards on my life I KNOW I have challenged the ‘wounded’ areas and healed them.


Also because Chiron sits in Capricorn it gives me a strong sense of structure, direction, rules, and boundaries. It shows I am terrific at guiding and helping others structure their lives, as well as motivating them to apply themselves to reaching their goals. I too had to learn this and I have. You have to be ‘healed’ before you can help others with what they need to be helped with.

Healing is not hard if you choose to open the wound, clean it and allow it to take the time to create how it should be.



......... And it was morning as God stood before his twelve children and into each of them he planted the seed of human life. One by one each child stepped forward to receive his appointed gift.

"To you Aries I give my first seed that you might have the honor of planting it. That for every seed you plant one million more will multiply in your hand. You will not have time to see the seed grow for everything you plant creates more than must be planted. You will be the first to penetrate the soil of men's minds with My Idea. But it is not your job to nourish the Idea nor to question it. Your life is action and the only action I ascribe to you is to begin making men aware of My Creation. For your good work I give you the virtue of Self Esteem."
Quietly Aries stepped back to his place.

"To you Taurus I give the power to build the seed into substance. Your job is a great one requiring patience for you must finish all that has been started or the seeds will be wasted to the wind. You are not to question nor change your mind in the middle nor to depend on others for what I ask you to do. For this I give you the gift of Strength. Use it wisely."
And Taurus stepped back into place.

"To you Gemini I give the questions without answers so that you may bring to all an understanding of what man sees around him. You will never know why men speak or listen, but in your quest for the answer you will find my gift of Knowledge"
And Gemini stepped back into place.

"To you Cancer I ascribe the task of teaching men about emotion. My Idea is for you to cause them laughter and tears so that all they see and think develops fullness from inside. For this I give you the gift of Family, that your fullness may multiply."
And Cancer stepped back to his place.

"To you Leo I give the job of displaying My Creation in all its brilliance to the world. But you must be careful of pride and always remember that it is My Creation, not yours. For if you forget this men will scorn you. There is much joy in the job I give to you if you but do it well. For this you are to have the gift of Honor.
And Leo stepped back to his place.

"To you Virgo I ask for an examination of all man has done with My Creation. You are to scrutinize his ways sharply and remind him of his errors so that through you My Creation may be perfected. For doing this I give you the gift of Purity of Thought."
And Virgo stepped back to his place.

"To you Libra I give the mission of service, that man may be mindful of his duties to others. That he may learn cooperation as well as the ability to reflect the other side of his actions. I will put you everywhere there is discord, and for your efforts I will give you the gift of Love."
And Libra stepped back to his place.

"To you Scorpio I give you a very difficult task. You will have the ability to know the minds of men, but I do not permit you to speak about what you learn. Many times you will be pained by what you see, and in your pain you will turn away from Me and forget that it is not I but the perversion of MY Idea that is causing your pain. You will see so much of man and you will come to know him as animal and wrestle so much with his animal instincts in yourself that you will lose your way; but when you finally come back to Me, Scorpio, I have for you the supreme gift of Purpose."
And Scorpio stepped back.

"Sagittarius I ask you to make men laugh for amidst their misunderstanding of My Idea they become bitter. Through laughter you are to give man hope, and through hope turn his eyes back to Me. You will touch many lives if but only for a moment, and you will know the restlessness in every life you touch. To you Sagittarius I give the gift of Infinite Abundance, that you may spread wide enough to reach every corner of darkness and bring it light."
And Sagittarius stepped back into place.

"Of you Capricorn I ask the toil of your brow, that you might teach men to work. Your task is not an easy one, for you will feel all of man's labors on your shoulders; but for the yoke of your burdens I put the responsibility of man in your hands."
And Capricorn stepped back into place.

"To you Aquarius I give the concept of future that man might see other possibilities. You will have the pain of loneliness for I do not allow you to personalize My Love. But for turning man's eyes to new possibilities I give you the gift of Freedom, that in your liberty you may continue to serve mankind whenever he needs you."
And Aquarius stepped back into place.

"To you Pisces I give the most difficult task of all. I ask you to collect all of man's sorrow and return it to me. Your tears are to be ultimately My tears. The sorrow you will absorb is the effect of man's misunderstanding My Idea, but you are to give him compassion that he may try again. For this most difficult task of all I give you the greatest gift of all. You will be the only one of My twelve children to understand Me. But this gift of understanding is for you, Pisces for when you try to spread it to man he will not listen.
And Pisces stepped back into place.

THE END: For all of you who have been waiting patiently for the LAST comment. I do not know why this brought tears to my eyes but it did.

....Then God said "You each have a part of My Idea. You must not mistake that for all of My Idea, nor may you desire to trade parts with each other. For each of you is perfect, but you will not know that until all twelve of you are ONE. For then the whole of My Idea will be revealed to each of you.
And the children left, each determined to do his job best that he might receive his gift, and when they returned puzzled God said, "You each believe that other gifts are better. Therefore I will allow you to trade." And for a moment each child was elated as he considered all the possibilities of his new mission.
But God smiled as he said "You will return to Me many times asking to be relieved of your mission, and each time I will grant you your wish. You will go through countless incarnations before you complete the original mission I have prescribed for you. I give you countless time in which to do it, but only when it is done can you be with Me."

I hope you all enjoyed this years Allegory.

VcToria's AWESOME Vegan Kitchen

In case you are new to my Newsletter I just wish to say this "The first thing you eat in the morning feeds the brain". Remember this as you will find a HUGE difference if you start the day with a green juice. I have done this for decades along with 3-4 teaspoons of hemp seed. I am never sick. 

  French Onion Soup

Instructions

You will need onions that are sliced any way you like them to be. I slice about 2 cups. Now, take your slow cooker and add about 1/2 cup of vegan butter. Add the onions and cook on low for about 24 hours.This gives you the caramelized onions that are needed for the soup.
Next, I use Campbell's Mushroom broth, but you can use your favorite. I have tried them all and for this soup, mushroom reigns :) I use the whole box.

Once the onions are done, I add the broth into the slow cooker and switch to high so that it heats. Or heat the broth on the stove and add to onions. Your choice.

Next take your french onion bowls and scoop out enough broth and onions to fill it 3/4 of the way. Now toast one slice of bread. Cube it and add to the broth mixture. Now top with vegan cheese. The new shredded Daiya cheese, has not only GREATLY improved in taste and texture, it is excellent for this soup. However, feel free to choose what you like best.

Turn on the broiler in your oven, I use medium heat and sit your bowl under it till the cheese is melted and brown on top. ENJOY. This can be an addiction :)

Next Month:  A plant based meal, vegan, gluten free, WONDERFUL pea soup. 


Gidgets Bistro
REVIEW WITH VcToria and Jackie.
VEGAN FOOD
125 Carleton Dr. Unit 101, St.Albert,
Alberta, Canada

VIP: Jackie has informed me that for her, this will be the last vegan review with me. Her plans for 2020 do not align with our eat outs any more sadly.  BUT!! I thought that I would also let go of this column, but to my GREAT delight my friend Janice will be my monthly partner to eat with. I may also have to eat by myself at times BUT!! so far there always seem to be someone who wants to join me.  


Gidgets: Let me start with the gushing positivity of the place. Parking is FABULOUS. Door to door, and tons of spaces. Once inside it is bright and oh so very comfortable. One thing they have done, that other restaurants could take a lesson from, is space the tables so you are not sitting on top of a stranger that so many restaurants deem necessary. Jackie and I chose the comfortable looking couch up against the window, with the eating table between us.


Next an extremely pleasant waitress served us, but the unbelievable service was when Gidget herself came to our table and told Jackie that she was cooking her gluten free meal on the other side of the kitchen and preparing it for her. My meal would be done on the other side with someone else. As she departed Jackie said to me “in her history of eating at vegan places, no other restaurant had ever come out and made her feel like her gluten free meal was important enough to be discussed as to the location of the preparation”.


Now onto the food: I ordered what I thought would be a drink as they have a liquor license. I asked for the Grizzly Grapefruit and to my amazement in came in a tin with a glass. Not sure if it was liquor, but it was $8. I said to Jackie 'wow at least pour it into a glass so I do not know this' :) I do not believe it was liquor and found $8 outrageous.


I ordered the corn chowder and fried bread to start. I gave the soup a 7/10 as it had a very strong coconut base taste. Again, not a big fan of coconut in my soup. The fried bread was a big disappointment to me. I found it tough and unlike anything I had ever eaten or expected. As something new to my palette, I would not order it again. I gave it a 5/10.

For my main dish I ordered 'Tastes like chicken pot pie'. As per my pic it looks lovely upon arrival. The side salad could be enhanced, as I am sure Jackie will also comment on this.

It was OK. I only gave it a 5/10 and would not order it again. A lovely presentation as I mentioned, but not the taste that one is expecting. Too ordinary. Bland if I want to word it correctly.


Now lastly the brownie I ordered for desert? WOW!! All I can say is this: You got a 10/10 and if I could score higher I would. Glossed over with coconut cream, as I requested, it came hot and awesome looking. As I dug in it melted in my mouth, then the Universe floated away as I enjoyed the succulent chocolate taste and the soft crumbs of heaven on my palette. One must have the brownie if you go.


Apparently they are changing up the menu sometime this month, and once that happens I will add it to my places to still go and review. However, I still have a long list to attend to.


Lastly: The location is out of the way. The place was not busy, BUT it had no screaming kids and that certainly was a delight for me. As I discussed this with Jackie she said 'sometimes the rent is cheaper and others will pay more rent to be in a busier place'. True. However, then how come West Edmonton Mall does not have a 100% vegan place? If you want 'packed with people' this is the place to open. Based on the location, I am not sure if this place will survive. I wish Gidget all the best; she was wonderful to meet and truly has a passion for what she is doing. I do ask that you try to support this establishment and give honest feedback to Gidget. A restaurant can only survive if HONESTY is give with compassion.

NEXT MONTHS REVIEW: Doppio Zero Pizza newly opened after Kanu failed with its food. Still run by the same people. Chosen by Myself. Heading there with Janice my new vegan review partner.
