A warm welcome to all my new readers that have subscribed to my Newsletter.
June 7th 2003 to September 4th 2019
This month my October Newsletter is dedicated to Venus who passed over to the other side on September 4th 2019 at 9.45 pm.
How did she come into my life? I arrived in Edmonton, Alberta in 1998 with three other cats. Sammy, Lucas and Princess. Unfortunately Sammy was hit by a motor cycle in 2000 and had to be put down. Why I was looking on the SPCA website in June 2003[as it was called back then] that day I do not know. But suffice to say, there was a Siamese cat who was the spitting image of Sammy. I went down to see this cat, and not only was he Sammy's twin, but he spoke and acted like him.I adopted him and brought him home. What I had not anticipated was Princess and Lucas would have nothing to do with a 5 moth old highly energetic kitten. After all Lucas and Princess were adults now.
Back to the SPCA website and lo and behold there was a wee, tiny female Siamese. Off I went and in this metal cage was a curled up, petrified 3 month old kitten, who according to the SPCA had been surrendered for being 'disobedient'. HUH?? She came home with me that day. I named her Venus after the planet of 'love'. I felt that every time I called her name I was sending her love.
An acreage had fallen into my lap that fine year of 2003. In the August all 4 of us moved out there. I had never had an abused, petrified cat before and Venus was this. She was scared of everything. It took a good seven months for her to trust and warm up to us. After this she remained docile, but purred and slept on the bed with all of us. I continued to show her that she had a home, love, food and all that she would ever need.
Back then the SPCA trusted that you fix the pets you adopted.This I did of course, but cried when I left her that day. Actually anytime she left the home for any type of car drive she cried pitifully. She hated any type of change. We lived on the acreage for ten years and she never left the back porch. This I have to say made me very happy as I never worried about her.
In 2004 China came to live with us. I say this just so you will not be confused when I speak about her.
Lucas passed while we lived there. A wild cat adopted us and I had named him George. He too passed just before we moved back into the city in 2014. Venus adjusted very well to our home in the city. She never left the yard and enjoyed sunning and eventually mousing that China taught her how to do.
Princess passed in September 2015 at the age of 19 and Solomon followed in 2017 at the age of 14.
In 2019 Venus started to get very tired and her mouth contracted some kind of pain that my vet thought may be bone cancer. She had shadows in her lungs that could have been cancer as well. All this grew, and you could see she was not her same self. I prayed she would pass naturally, but it was not to be. I set up an appointment for her to be euthanized at home for September 6th. On September 4th I came home from yoga and she was under the bed screaming in pain.
Based upon the horrible service I received at Guardian vet when Solomon needed to rushed in to be euthanized in 2017 I called Urgent Care in St Albert. They were open till 11 pm and yes they had a doctor on call who would take care of the euthanizing.
I rushed up there with very bad directions and had to call while listening to my poor Venus choking with pain. Her throat was closing and she could not breathe properly. Thick gel like mucus was coming up. They directed me there, but while on the phone told me I would not be able to take her body with me. I was stunned. They told me it was the law. I told them I had never heard of this and unless I could take the body I would fill her up with pain killers till my vet opened in the morning. 'Let me check the law' they said and at that time I drove into the parking lot.
I hate to think of people who do not have strong personalities like mine. They would just leave and believe this. First I told them that I needed to show the body to my cat China so she knew Venus was passed. They then said 'that I could bring China the next day up to the clinic and show her' !!!! WHAT???
In the end they said "what will you be doing with the body"? I said "cremating her" With what company? they asked.Then said that unless they could fill the form with this information that I could not have the body.
Now on a positive note they did rush me into a little room and asked if I wanted to be present, or if they should take her in the back. I replied that i would be with her every step of the way. The doctor came in looked and left. Never said a word. The nurse then informed me that the reason they did not release the body was 'because people took the drugs that were used out of the animal and committed suicide afterwards' HUH??
I informed her that I had no intention of committing suicide and she replied 'well they all say that' HUH???????
Let me tell you that all of the above mentioned cats, minus China had been euthanized and I ALWAYS took the body home. Never had an issue. Each of them were cremated and their ashes sit by the fireplace.
Then I was left in this room. It took at least 10-15 minutes before the doctor came back and finally Venus was put out of pain. However, my vet has always given a strong sedative before the main drugs were inserted giving a VERY peaceful passing. I asked for this and it is obvious they do not do that.
Then I was told not to touch the catheter as I could die if the drug got into any cut on my skin. [I kid you not] Then time passed and finally after 30 minutes I went outside and said 'we would like to leave'. This nurse [the same one] looked at me and said 'I have an emergency here and I do not want them to die' YES!!! Death, die, suicide is all she had on her mind.
A minute later she came in and removed the catheter and then told me what a nice person I was and helped me carry Venus to the van.
The next day I told the story to my vet who was appalled. Urgent Care is their sister vet and I was expecting the same service that I would get from my vet as I assumed [and maybe wrongly] that they would have access to Venus's care on the computer. My vet told me in no uncertain terms that the amount of drugs in the body could not kill anyone. She wanted me to make a report and give it to her. I asked if she would speak to the nurse, as I felt that if I had to use them again [and Angels willing I do not] that they may not give me proper service.
Lastly, I told my vet that when it is China's time to push me, NOT allow me to hold on so that the passing can be done at home. I NEVER want to have to rush to emergency again as I have now had to do with Venus and Solomon. The memories of these passing's are not pleasant.
I ignored the fact that she told me she had called a cremation place and the person would be waiting for my call. I called who I wanted to. I called Faithful Friends again. Brent arrived and picked up Venus. He then returned her later in the week with a beautiful urn all engraved as I had ordered. May Venus run free with Solomon, Princess, George and Lucas. May I join you one day when it is my time and cuddle and love you all.
Other than the beginning of the month focusing on Venus, the rest was fine. China my only cat now, will turn sixteen on October 7th. A given birthday by me so she could be slightly older. However, she is enjoying being the only cat and spends all her time on my lap or cuddled up in bed with me at night. Her schedule seems to have changed to my liking. She sleeps nearly all day. We get up, she remains in bed till I bring her breakfast to her. Then she joins me in the kitchen and yells till we head downstairs to the office. There she sleeps on my lap till I am done. Then she takes over the office chair and sleeps till about 3 pm. Then she takes a walk in the garden and sleeps in the sun if it is out. At around 7 pm she goes for a nightly walk. This is like clockwork! BUT!!! now she returns between 11 pm and 1 am. I never go to bed before then, so I close her window and off we go upstairs to bed. She runs ahead and yells at me to hurry up so we can settle down and watch some TV till we fall asleep and then it starts all over again the next day.
September 3rd Jackie and I went for our monthly vegan review that is in the column below We had chosen Au Chay as our monthly choice, but lo and behold when we arrived on the Tuesday it was CLOSED!!! Now who closes a restaurant on a Tuesday? Seems that they had changed their closed day from a Wednesday to a Tuesday. But still, who closes on a weekday? Since it was my month to choose we jumped back in the van and headed to my next choice The Clever Rabbit. See below.
The rest of the month was incredible busy with orders, many, many readings, a WONDERFUL house party and then of course my personal stuff like closing the garden. This takes a lot time doing all the weeding, mowing etc. But it too got done.
Off to Fort McMurray on the 22nd and once again had an amazing time and a wonderful show. Thank you to all my clients up there making the weekend well worth my effort to go. I HATED leaving China and I tell you when I got back she was madder than mad. I had left her cat cage closed so she could only go out into that as opposed to her walks. She screamed and screamed and screamed at me upon my arrival home, but by Tuesday had settled back to her calm, demanding self LOL.
These books that I am re-publishing are collectors items. The contents are secrets of energy work that are 50 years old, created by my Dad back then.
As I close out 'Chat' it is the 25th today. The rest of my month is still booked up with work. Thank You Angels. I get so many signs that I am doing my right path. I smile and enjoy every day.
Now, as I comment on in nearly every Newsletter, I am in my Personal Year One. We have seasons that, if we choose to activate the energy of that season, ALL of life works. Simple put, my year is all about 'seeding'. So far most of what I have chosen to seed is working well.
I recall why I gave up teaching Reiki and only started back up due to many people asking if I still teach and how they would be interested. Well you learn 'asking' and then them 'doing' is not the same. I am once again retiring from teaching IN PERSON classes. I am intending to create on line courses later on. I have seeded this in my journal and will be creating them in my Personal Year Three. I am continuing with re-publishing Dads books that are selling tremendously well and then am working on a project that I will announce late 2020.
May you all use the energy of life to create. How? Use meditation and walk through the doors that this will activate. If you do not enjoy your life then something is wrong. If you are afraid of change then nothing will make your life better if you cling to 'fear'. Know that life creates action if you follow it. Action creates the CORRECT path for you and only you.
Read about Neptune below in my Astrology column. The last time it was in Pisces was in the 1800's!!!

Venus:As I wrote about above, she passed on September 4th 2019. That day I had taken her to the vet and we arranged what I thought would be a home passing. My vet prescribed mirazapine to try to stimulate her appetite and buprenorphone for pain. She was also dehydrated and underwent the subcutaneous fluids. Total cost was $66.94.
Later that night as I wrote about above she euthanized. Cost for that was $189.42.
I then had a private cremation done for her, and her ashes placed in a wooden box all engraved with her date of birth and death and a message from China and myself. Cost $436.75
China: Worm pills for two months as she eats mice. Cost $48.52. No vet visits as she is fine, and at this point very healthy.
Now the food: Raw food came to $36.55. While Venus was not eating I bought some tins of salmon, tuna and a chicken. None of which she ate but she did lick up the juice. Cost of those were $32.15. other than that I am fully stocked on tinned, dry and all other things.
Total monthly costwas $810.33.
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 guess I will choose 'my opinion' on the upcoming election. I am really leaning towards NOT voting, as none of these parties make me jump for joy.
Green Party: Positive: Elizabeth May speaks eloquently. Most people cannot.
I wish her views on drugs were not so stupid. Otherwise I would vote Green. We DO NOT need more drug houses that are legal to shoot up in. Good grief, where are these people getting all this money from? OH?? could it be my tax dollars and then the food banks etc supplying food once that money has been used to get high?
Please do not send me e-mails about additions. I am VERY familiar with it. I wrote a book on it. Then Now and Forever by VcToria Gray. [see Amazon or my website]
What we need are places that drug addicts can get into the same day. Places that are FREE and mandatory to sign yourself in for nine months. YES NINE MONTHS. These need to be court appointed or if you sign yourself in, held as a contract that cannot be broken. You cannot come off an addiction in these 10 day places that offer drying out.
Also nothing has been said about animal rights coming from her. But my 'no' vote will be because of her encouragement to increase drug use. When she ran against Trudeau in the last election she also said she would legalize pot.
I can assure you that no addict stuck a needle in their arm the first time they used drugs. No, they smoked pot and then wanted more. That is how addictions start. It is why we have so many alcoholics. Once booze was made legal, people became addicted and drank more and more.
Liberals: Trudeau: I cannot stand him. He cannot talk without UM ER UM ER unless he is reading it, or has repeated it before he speaks. Most of the time another person has written his speeches. When caught without a script he UMS and ERS and that is a sign of a liar, or someone who does not know what they are saying.
Trudeau is a phony and knows how to flirt with females with his photo op grin. Nothing he promised was accomplished. He lied, he cheated and now attacks his opponents ruthlessly. I did not vote for him back then, and never will. He will be the cause of many more drug addicts.
Also no mention of animal rights.
NDP:Singh: Well I looked at you. However, last night your focus upon raising corporate taxes to 21% changed my mind. You need to remember some of us are small business owners who choose to incorporate so that if sued, we do not lose our personal stuff. A smart move for those who run a business correctly, plus we hold business insurance and more. However, that would be a HUGE tax increase for us.
I did like the fact that you said you would look into the money laundering that goes on in BC that has caused the insane housing market.
Also no mention of animal rights.
You do speak wonderfully though. Thank You for that. I love listening to fluid speech.
Conservatives: Scheer you are starting to speak like Trudeau. At first your talking was wonderful, and now that you have been out and about talking on the cuff, I find the UMS and ERS [more ERS] to be a constant stutter. I do not want to have to listen to another Prime Minster for four years who cannot speak properly.
Other than that, you too make no mention of animal rights. I do like your take on a few other things. Your removal of GST on heating home bills and the lowering of business taxes.
I will watching all candidates and will vote with my choices, NOT how other people think I should live my life. Just because you are voting with what you think is right, does not mean we must 'follow' you. I am so tired of other people thinking they are the one's who are right. Everyone has a right to think for themselves. I know people who used to vote NDP and no longer do. Back when they voted NDP they yelled loud and long about how right they were. Now they are yelling about another party. Who I vote for is my choice, my given right and not anyone else's to judge. That is called freedom of 'thinking for yourself'. And, as I said above, I may not vote. I may vote for the Peoples Party just to throw a vote. I have most of this month to decide.
If I hear anything about animals rights my ears will perk up. If I hear anything about more drug addition laws and houses, again my ears will perk up.
This is MY opinion and you can 'choose' to agree or not.

VIP: In the January 2019 Newsletter I covered the Moon and the Void of Course Moon and what it means.
Retrograde Planets right now are Uranus and Neptune. Pluto moves direct on October 3rd 2019 bringing with it many repeat lessons. I predict some very severe weather patterns repeating themselves.
This month I have chosen to talk about the last planet Neptune. Next month I will cover the Nodes.
NEPTUNE is retrograde right now and sits in its ruler Pisces. The last time Neptune was in Pisces was 1847 to 1862. This will be so till 2026. We are now ALL feeling the opening time of our spirituality. The energy is NOT shifting, it is making us come awake, alive to the touch of the inner core. Embrace, do not hide. meditate, enjoy being alive. Most will never experience Neptune in its ruling planet again. In 2026 it moves into Aries and from that point in time the world will EXPLODE with new initiatives.
Neptune moved into Pisces in 2011. THINK deeply now, have you experienced inner changes in a huge way since then? OR have you chosen to ignore them and are
NATAL: Look to your birth chart to see where your natal Neptune sits.
My chart has a 7th house Neptune. Yes, we wait for a spiritual mate, not someone to just live with. Any of my relationships have been with men who adore me. I have always though, walked away except for one. He is the one I wrote a book about. The one who went to prison. All of my relationships have said the same thing to me 'you do exactly as you please, you listen to no one'. Yes, and that is what Neptune does, it envisions the knight on the white horse at all times. LOL. BUT!! as I will be talking about later on I have another planet that sits conjunct to my natal Neptune. That would be Saturn. Since I have written about Saturn, you know it to be the 'task master'. So that is my journey. Almost always Neptune in your natal 7th house brings forth karmic ties to major relationships.
1st House: Sensitive, intuitive and clairvoyant. Artistic, and possible very musically inclined. Must stay away from any type of drugs and alcohol as addictions are easy to come by plus there open psychic energy attracts negativity.
2nd House: A difficult placement as intuitively they do very well with money. Make sure you do not spend money on material just for the beauty rather than value. Balance needs to be understood surrounding the use of finances.
3rd House: Often these people have learning difficulties. Day dreamers yet make good writers. Also a very intuitive placement.
4th House:Often coming from an alcoholic background. Troubled past coming from home life. A deep yearning for a stable home. Often many strange stories in the family backgrounds or secrets that come to light.
5th House:Often found in a very creative person. IE: Able to produce movies like Star Wars. Can be gullible and need to watch out for this as others will take advantage of it. Work very well with children.
6th House:This placement NEEDS to create a food menu that consists of only natural foods. The more they feed the body a HIGH healthy life style the better they will feel. Often loners, they prefer to work by themselves.
7th House: I covered this above as my Neptune sits in my 7th house.
8th House: These people often pass away in their sleep. The best way to pass I believe. These people are HIGHLY intuitive and make the BEST channels. [Talking to the dead] They often have trouble understanding money.
9th House:A These folks find themselves attracted to cults and they need to be careful of this. Often visionaries and work in social reform areas.
10th House:These people are visionaries. They need their freedom and do much better working alone. They have trouble with authority and being told what to do.
11th House: Need to understand who are their friends and who are not. Do not be gullible. Very humanitarian and will work with groups who wish to help man kind.
12th House:Unless you allow yourself to open to the true secrets of the sub conscious you will live your life in a fog. You will pull away from others. Once you find your inner spiritual journey you need to understand the energy of this. You cannot be around negative energy as you absorb this from people. Different from what others consider 'normal'. If you believe in 'coming from another planet' then this placement often feels that way.
If you would like a FULL astrology chart done for you with transits, past lives and predictions please use the link at the top 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. Aries to Aquarius is now added :)
Now I found this in one of my Karmic books. Most of my books are rare. 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.
"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."
NEXT MONTH:I cover Pisces.
The end will be the BEST message ever. Stayed tuned :).

Clever Rabbit REVIEW WITH VcToria and Jackie.
10722 124 St NW
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
As I stated in Chat we were supposed to go to Au Chay and they were closed in the middle of the week. Since it was my month to choose I chose to head on over to Clever Rabbit.
I have eaten here before and know I love the nanaimo bars. Unfortunately they had none for sale that day. My hips thanked me though :)
Settling down to read the menu, the only distraction but was yet another screaming baby, that no one thinks bothers anyone else in the place, and so will let it yell. Luckily they were ending their meals, and I only had to tolerate it for about ten minutes, then we were left in peace to enjoy.
I normally do not eat breakfast, as it has left me with many of my other habits that used to be ingrained in my life. However, the breakfast menu caught my eye and I though 'what the heck' lets do brekkie.
I ordered the bean curd omelet with cheese. Adding to that, the shredded potatoes and sausages. I like my sausages burnt and requested this. Hence the pic above if you are thinking that they may be so.
They truly listen to you when you request items cooked a certain way. The food is also cooked at the time you order and from scratch. Thus, if you are in a big hurry do not stop. Be prepared to have wonderful food all hot and yummy. This is not a fast food, microwave and take it out kind of place. Its a place to enjoy your company and catch up on chitter-chatter with whomever you go there with.
I discovered I do not like bean curd what so ever. I landed up leaving the entire omelet. The sausages were given a 9/10 and the potatoes an 8/10. There is a spice that I find a lot of vegan restaurants use and I do not like it. I am still not sure which spice it is. This spice was in my sausages plus potatoes.
NOW!! look at the above pic of the cinnamon bun. YES!! I asked for a ton of icing. Sweet Pea Cafe could take a lesson from this. Not only when we lunched there did we ask and offer to pay extra for icing, and it was not given BUT Jackie stopped there during The Fringe and again asked for extra icing and when she arrived at my tent AGAIN not a single pack of extra icing. SWEET PEA?? this is extra icing and Jackie will attest that I ate every drop. The best buns in the city as far as I am concerned are at Clever Rabbit.
The biggest compliment I can give Clever Rabbit is that they hear you when you order, and not only that, pay attention to your order so you get what you asked for.
Overall I highly recommend this place.
