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


VIP: The March Reiki class is now full. If you wish to take Reiki Level One and Two the next class will be October 5th and 6th 2019. You may sign up now if you wish.

Last month I promised to write about a medical issue and I intend to keep that promise. So lets start there.

I had been doing only raw foods for two years way back around 2003. Then I started to do a lot of shows and that took me out of town quite a bit. Back then food was hard to come by if you wanted 'healthy'. Slowly I reverted back to vegetarian. I flipped back and forth from vegetarian to vegan. Until 2012. Why I went to the doctors in the first place, I cannot recall. However, an ultra sound was recommended and off I went. Whatever the issue was that the doctor had sent me for was 100% fine, BUT she said that during this ultra sound they had picked up a fatty liver PLUS polyps on my gall bladder. They were small, she said, but if they grew, it would be time for surgery. I told her that I would not be doing surgery. She said 'it was a small surgery' however I said my choice would not be surgery as I believe in living a natural life, but not to worry I would get food to change these maladies that had showed up. Her exact words were "polyps do not disappear ever" . I smiled at her and said "trust me, I'll get rid of them" She said we would do a re-check in six months. I went TOTALLY vegan that day, and never shifted. Six months later I returned. The fatty liver was all cleared up and the polyps were the same size. Please return in a year I was told for followups.
Every December since then, I have gone for check ups on the polyps. 2014 they were a wee bit smaller. 2015 again, a wee bit smaller. 2016 they were really tiny but still there. 2017 I was told they were so small that I did not need to come back. I asked for a follow up though for December 2018 because I was experimenting with foods, and I really wanted them gone. Again I was told, not only by my doctor, but also by the ultrasound technician that they NEVER disappear. However, my doctor is cool and said 'sure' and booked me for December 2018. I went for my yearly scan and guess what? THEY WERE GONE. ALL GONE. Not a single sign of them. Something everyone said could never happen. I will remain a vegan but am now moving to 90% plant based. I will talk about that in my VcToria's Awesome Vegan Kitchen column that is below in Aprils Newsletter.
I always say food is your medicine. I do not do flu shots, drugs of any kind and I NEVER get sick. My immune system is not compromised by anything, and I hold thoughts towards GREAT health all the time. If you wish to lead a healthy energy life style go vegan. Even vegetarian holds a ton of animal DNA that constitutes an unhealthy life style. Hey!!! don't believe me? Give it a 30 day try and decide for yourself.

Now onto February which may give me a medal for the amount of times I ate out LOL. I never eat out unless I am doing a review with Jackie [see below] or a special occasion. I love to cook and as I wrote above I need to know what I am eating.
First though, reads, for some reason, EVERY February, are down in number. it is why I save in the summer months to get me through the winter months. This February was particularly slow. I attribute it to the Christmas bills arriving, plus our cold weather. However, more to the bills. I did have a wonderful event at Indigo bookstore. I had to hire five other psychics for this. I had been hired by an event planner and took care of the Alberta based events. I had three psychics at one location and myself and two others at another location. That went REALLY well and the event planner was extremely pleased.

I do not do many events that need extra psychics, but on occasion I need them. if you are a psychic and do want me to have your number on hand to hire you please e-mail it to me. I will contact you if I need extra psychics for events.

My son and I went out for a lunch just to see each other. Famosa pizza now has vegan cheese, so I chose to go there as my son is not vegan. Next my granddaughter wanted to have a visit, so again we went there and this time I ordered the Fungi. An awesome mushroom pizza, that once you tell them you are vegan they make it for you with olive oil, onions and tons of mushrooms. DELICIOUS. I also ordered one via Skip the Dishes at some point this month.
I now have had my fill of pizza, as my granddaughter was flying out to Vancouver and since I was driving her to the airport we stopped at Boston Pizza on the South Side as BP is slowly switching over all their locations to add vegan cheese to the menu. South side was first to do this. I was able to have a wonderful veggie lasagna. As you can see, I have now eaten out four times and still I was not done LOL. On February 14th Jackie and I went down to Copper Wood for our review. {See below} Then, lastly one of the psychics I hired for the event at Indigo's, who I had not seen for a long time, went out with me to Padamani's. In total I ate out six times, PLUS ordered in once. I think that is a record for me.

Yes, once again I had vet bills. Venus had to go in for her teeth. She bit down on a dry food morsel and screamed in pain. She was taken in and had her blood work done AGAIN [grrr]. I also allowed x-rays to be done, and happily the report on these are the little knobs that sit in her lungs are still the same size. I believe they are scars from her asthma, but will not be doing any type of testing. She came through like a champ with her teeth and the problem was her back gums had grown over her back teeth and an infection had set in. No extractions were needed, and they complimented me on the health of her teeth. They were all cleaned up, she was on antibiotics for five days and the smell all cleared up and she is her same self again. Cost: Actually not bad for all the work. Her blood work, x-rays and dental work came to $1,134.20. BUT!!! sad to say it was not over for vet visits.
I woke up to blood showing in the litter box on top of the urine. I was shocked to say the least. China's urinary issues and 'stress'' issues had appeared to clear up and my immediate thought was "OH NO China has her bladder issues back." However, at that exact moment China jumped into the litter box and pee'd. NO blood showing. What was more amazing was that Peter was standing there and as soon as she left he jumped in and pee'd. He pee'd pure blood. Cats amaze me as to how they will show you their problems if you allow yourself to get connected to their energy.
Off we went to the vet right away. He is now on a 14 day shot of antibiotics. They cleared him up for one day, then the blood came back for an overnight pee and then cleared up again. If after the 14 days it returns, the vet and I will be talking about his quality of life. Next month I will update you on Peter.

I only had five readings all month, the event I spoke about above and a house party that was booked last October for this month. I really enjoyed the house party that took place in Fort Saskatchewan. YES!!! Indeed a VERY quiet month with more spent than came in. But I have written about this before. Credit cards are for emergencies, and I use them for that. You will never hear me say 'I cannot afford my cats bills, so I put them down'. Or any other emergency. Money comes and money goes, memories stay. I never want regret when it comes to my pets.

What else filled my month? I steamed all my carpets on the lower floors. Probably the best investment I have ever made was a carpet cleaner. I cannot believe how dirty they get. They look fine, and then you wash them and the water that is taken up is filthy. I had bought a Bissell steam cleaner three years ago and never regretted it. Saved myself a lot of money here as it is not difficult to clean carpets at all.

I have finished typing in my late Fathers book. The Mystic Grimoire of Mighty Spell and Rituals. [written by Frater Malek aka Geof Gray Cobb] I will have it published by the end of April and on my website store for sale.
What else? I watched a nice lot of TV LOL. Today I find TV very relaxing. I have actually become quite lazy with this winter off. Even to the point of not working out. Since I have given up a few shows I am hoping to get back into working out a lot more as Spring arrives. I have a lot of walking trails in the back of my house.

Talking about shows. Thank You 'Make It', an event that is being held at the Expo Cente at Northlands this month. Hall H. There used to be shows that took place in March and slowly each organizer moved them to April. Why??? I have no clue, as March people are looking to get out and do something. April?? they are looking to garden NOT be inside. EVERY show that I used to do in March that moved to April has gone down in size, attendance and also for all vendors [as we all talk] income. Luckily for me, I have been accepted into 'Make It' and will be there doing mini psychic reads on March 22nd/23rd/24th 2019. Please google the show for hours, but they are very decent. The show also is sitting beside The Home and Garden Show so you can get two shows in on one day if you like.

Do you live in Calgary? If so, and you are on my e-mail list you will get a personal e-mail but if not, please know I most likely will be there on the first weekend of April. Please read my April Newsletter before the 4th of April and I will confirm that I am in a show there for mini reads. Funnily enough I have never done very well in Calgary. Anything south of Edmonton seems to be a 'no-no' for me. East and North I do AMAZING!! But I will give Calgary another shot :)

It is VERY interesting when you look at your birth astrology placements that tell you where the best place would be for you to live.
Mine is Edmonton funnily enough. I lived in Montreal Quebec for 38 years and my astrological placements show nothing but emotional disappointments and tension. If you have read my book you know this to be very true. Now Edmonton shows that I would have peace and happiness and a brand new chance at my creativity, PLUS more. All that has happened since I moved here 21 years ago.

What else? Just the complete fulfillment of relaxation as this winter progresses. Last winter I had to complete my book, and it took a TON of time. The winter prior, I had to work at a cafe downtown, doing reads on a shift, to create more income for the bank to take my mortgage over. Now I truly have had a winter off. Happy that I do not have to go out much. Happy that I have a fireplace and tons of peacefulness inside of me to appreciate all I have in my home.
I meditate daily and say thank you to the Universe for all I have been given and all I have learnt to accomplish. That is all it takes to enjoy life. Put effort into what you LOVE to do, and be peaceful inside. Let go of people who do not serve you well in personality, and have no regrets. Trust me the Universe will give you what you need. Maybe NOT what you think you 'want' but what you need.

May the trial and errors of the past, show the changes that need to be made in the 'now', so that the past no longer has trials and errors as you move forward and look back. Do not bring memories of the past with you, for that is why you stay there. Memories can be changed :)
Positive thoughts to all my readers until next month.


Let’s cover the vet bills first: China: Vet free! Did not need to go.

Peter: $45 for a urinalysis check. Then a week later the story I told above happened, and that cost me $162.24. That was for the check up and medication. As I stated above, I will know next month what we are doing with him. I am hoping it was just a urinary infection, as my vet says having kidney disease, that Peter is in stage two right now, often causes urinary infections.

Venus: Well as I stated above, her x-rays, blood work and dental care was $1134.20

Now the food: Dry food was not needed again. I have tons. Kitty litter came to $49.47. Tinned food came to $53.68 and lastly raw food came to $75.78.

Total cost was $1475.37. Since I have put most of the vet bills on a Pet Plan credit card at zero percent for 6 months, we have quite high payments till August. I will be focusing on paying this off and then looking at getting savings done for a new garage door.

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: Well I believe this really helped for Venus, as she was in GREAT pain. Monday, February 4th was the original day that Jackie and I had chosen for our vegan restaurant review. Now, my biggest pet peeve is making plans, and having the other person cancel or change them. Jackie, and anyone I know well, truly knows this about me. Once I make a commitment, I never ever let the person down. Even if i get requests for bookings, I schedule it around a previous commitment.

Jackie text's me Monday to say she was not feeling well, BUT!!!! if I forced her to go she would, but she would not be great company. Could we switch it to the 14th? I reminded her that was Valentines Day and she was fine with it. I re-scheduled and went about my day.
It was two hours later that Venus screamed in pain when she bit into a piece of her dry food. Actually she must have thought it was the food, as she tried another bowl of dry. Same thing happened. If I had been out, I would not have seen this. She was now able to be booked quickly for the vet to see her. Luckily so, as my vet would not have been in till Wednesday, and ironically she was sick on Wednesday and then was leaving for Mexico for the following week. Thus I was able to get in on the Monday, have Venus's teeth done on the Thursday, and all is well. Poor Venus would have had to have waited in dire pain for almost two weeks more. [Although most likely I would have taken her to the other vet that Peter went to. However, this other vet is 50% higher in cost than my vet].

As an added addition I wish to explain spells and rituals first. My late Father published five books. I have all the rights to his work. I am in the process of re-publishing The Mystic Grimoire of Mighty Spells and Rituals.His alias was Frater Malek for this book, in case you are googling it. Within this book are the spells he created plus 27 rituals he devised. It also contains the booklet needed to work the rituals.The Amulets.
I am now offering to boost the energy of his work as many people use a creation of energy to enhance their lives. In this case the words 'Spells' and 'Rituals' are used as titles. Please know i have no interest in negative work. Therefore if you ask me to do a spell breaking up a marriage the answer will be "NO". My Father only worked with POSITIVE light and that is all I will work with too. To set an intent or buy a spell or have me do it for you please go to the web store by clicking on this link>SPELLS
Please note that Spells are not Rituals. Rituals take a lot of effort and time. They do have more power in the intention though. Click here for the Rituals>RITUALS

In the January 2019 Newsletter I covered the Void of Course Moon and what it means. Below you can print out the dates for March so that you can follow the advice of this energy. You may also read January Newsletter if you missed the article. See below for the link. I covered the Sun last month.

This month we cover Mercury, the planet of communication. Gemini is ruled by Mercury and some would say this is why Gemini's talk a lot. :) Also referred to as the Twins, Gemini's tend to be quite nervous and inconsistent. Mercury also rules Virgo, the critical personality. However their value shows in the detailing of their lives. Virgo's need to let go of their need to over analyze and criticize others. Again though this is the communication side of Mercury that Virgo's use.

Now, Mercury goes Retrograde three times a year. 2019 dates are YUP!! this month for starters. March 5th 2019 at 9.19 am MST to March 28th 2019 where is goes direct at 5.59 am MST. July 7th 2019 it goes Retrograde at 3.15 pm MST to July 31st when it goes direct at 7.58 pm MST. Lastly, October 31st 2019 at 7.42 am MST and then goes direct on November 20th 2019 at 10.12 am MST.

As Mercury is retrograde things tend to need to be repeated once it goes direct. Contracts need to be re-signed, things need to be re-done. Many find their computers, phones etc break down. If you look at the larger picture take note of the world and how the communications break down or the satellite dishes are not doing their work properly.

Your astrological chart contains twelve houses. In one of these houses sits the Mercury. This house will tell you where your communication abilities lie. However, if you were born under Mercury being Retrograde you will be here to learn to communicate in a better way.

My Mercury sits in my first house in Pisces. Almost on the ascendant. I have a large first house containing Pisces and Aries. Because my Mercury sits in Pisces I tend to be the dreamer and often tended to be gullible in my younger days. Today I use this power for my creativity but until I learnt about my TRUE gifts this placement led me to be emotional with my words. Today I use my words for others to hear. Thus my work truly suits me. Luckily with my Aries Sun placement also inn my first house I can use this strength to overcome the emotion of the feelings words produce. My Mercury also conjuncts [dances] with my Moon placement giving me my alertness, sensitiveness, intuition and talkative nature :)

Mercury is the link between spirit and matter. Mercury takes each house as it travels through them and brings to light the need to recognize what communication or thoughts should be talked about or processed. It travels around the Sun every 88 days and moves through each sign every three to four weeks. This is why, when you get these spontaneous ideas you need to act upon them OR look to the sign that Mercury is in, PLUS the house it is travelling in through your own natal [birth] chart to determine how to proceed.

If you would like a FULL astrology chart done for you with transits and predictions please use the link at the bottom of this article for more information and to be able to order. These can be done anywhere for you, no matter where you live.

Continuance of the Karmic signs. Gemini is now added :)

Now I found this in one of my Karmic books. Most of my books are rare. Last month I did not post this so two of the signs will be posted this month. Each month I will post each sign. Now, please, do not be offended if I use the word God. Please feel free to substitute it for Angel, Creator, Buddha or any other word that you use for your belief. This is Gods' explanation for all the signs. By December I will have the last words that God speaks for the explanation of ALL twelve signs. I LOVED this and hope you do too.

......... 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.

NEXT MONTH: I cover Cancer. The end will be the BEST message ever. Stayed tuned :).

VcToria's AWESOME Vegan Kitchen

So far in this 2019 column I talked about my kitchen utensils, hemp seeds and chick peas. I am hoping you all took notice of how to cook chick peas last month as I said I would post how to make vegan butter from the juice that is referred to as Aquafaba. You can also use this juice as an egg supplement in any type of baking PLUS use it on a meringue pie as the meringue.

Vegan Butter: Very simple to do: Ingredients: 3 tablespoons of aquafaba 1/3 cup of REFINED coconut oil. 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 2/3 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar.
How to: Melt coconut oil. Remove from stove and add olive oil and let sit till room temperature. Add oils to blender and blend slowly adding the aquafaba and vinegar. Blend for two to three minutes. Set in fridge. VIP: DO NOT use salt in the chick peas while cooking as this will make your butter way too salty.

Now for this months recipe. Takes five minutes to make. Sorry no photo as I forgot to take one!
In this vegan cheese recipe you will get 17 grams of protein. It is fast and super duper easy to make. Use it for macaroni and 'cheese' or lasagna.

Vegan Macaroni and Cheese that tastes AWESOME

1 cup of white beans. I used white kidney beans but any white bean is fine. You can use canned if you are in a hurry OR make a batch of dried beans.Follow my recipe for chick peas for any dried bean in last months Newsletter. Links at the bottom of the page.

1/2 cup of unsweetened milk. I use Ripple unsweetened.
1/3rd cup of shredded cheese. I use Daiya cheddar OR use five tablespoons of nutritional yeast.
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder.

If you are using canned bean make sure you drain and rinse them. Put all ingredients in the blender and blend. Transfer to a pot on the stove and heat. If you are using macaroni you can add it once the cheese sauce is heated [cook the macaroni separately] or simple pour the 'cheese' over it. The cheese bakes well, so feel free to use it in any recipe.
If you find the mixture too thick just add more milk. Enjoy.

10310 Jasper Ave, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Another plant based restaurant which is also fairly new to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Plus, if the Jasper Avenue was not enough, they just opened the second one in South Commons.

This month Jackie and I were NOT disappointed with our monthly vegan outing to review food. Let's begin.

It has a very comfortable booth seating at the back and I chose to sit there. Yes, you do have to go up to the front and read the menu and order. However, you can also take the menu to your table and read it at leisure and then go and order. The folks there are extremely accommodating. We asked for our starters to be made first, and then our main dishes. "No problem" they said with a smile.

For the two of us, we ordered the poutine with mushroom gravy, plus the nacho's. They arrived hot and tasty to the counter and our names were called. Jackie went up and got the plates, plus our cutlery and napkins. As we dug in, we both agreed the dishes were awesome. Granted, the poutine was not french fries, but quartered potatoes, but still great. No oily fried food here. We took our time eating the starters, along with our two smoothies we had ordered. Mine was the Einstein with raspberries, blueberries,spinach, coconut, maple syrup and vanilla soy. I asked that the chia seed be left out, as both Jackie and I are not big fans of chia seed at all. Jackie chose the Ghandi and with her review I am sure she will cover how great her smoothie was.

Next, they actually came and asked us if we were ready for our main dishes, and once we were they brought them to our table. I had the quinoa chili and Jackie had the shitake, teriyaki burger. I do have to say the portions were huge for our starters and we were already feeling VERY full. I dug into my chili and WOW it was perfect. I think next time I would order some rice to go with it, but since I had to take half of it home, I am glad that I just ordered the chili by itself. I tasted Jackie's burger and YUM YUM. Again she will review it in her Newsletter. See below for a link.

Were we done? Not by a long shot :) We ordered two hot chocolates and the divine brownie. I do have to say we split the brownie, as by now both of us were feeling more than full. If you choose the brownie, do have them heat it up, I tell you, it melts in your mouth.

The bill, including the tip, for two was $70. The food was amazing. Please keep in mind that this is plant based. Meaning all the food is made with plants, not the soy meats that many have gotten used to at other vegan restaurants.

So Copper Branch gets a 10/10 score from me. It is quiet, the people are GREAT who serve you. It is accommodating in all areas, and the bathroom is superb and clean. Food is fantastic, and both Jackie and I agreed we would both go and eat there again. Now that the South Commons has a branch we will most likely, before the end of the year, try that one out.
