Beyond the retrograde, by Holiday Mathis
To do what feels right to you, you have to distinguish between “right” and its sneaky, “comfortable” imitator. The good thing is often quite uncomfortable indeed. It may force you to face a fear, to make efforts that you weren’t planning on, and to work harder than you wanted to. But it invigorates you and helps you grow in ways “comfortable” never could.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Generosity is good for you. You give what you have more: support, love, smiles and compassion. It is not difficult for you because you have cultivated this all your life.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Would you ever have thought that you would be where you are now, among these people, doing what you are doing? Yet you are here. Life is unpredictable, but trying to predict it will be a joy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone has faults. Negative events and qualities arise from the experience of knowing another person. Rise above this primordial fact of humanity and join in the grace and compassion of angels.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Fortunately, you are not the judge, so there is little that requires your evaluation. You can relax and adopt a posture of acceptance. How exhausting it would be if you had to weigh in on everything!
LION (July 23-August 22). Your creativity is at its peak today. Keep doing things the way you do. Let nothing discourage you. It’s part of what keeps you vital, and you will be remembered.
VIRGIN (23 August-22 September). Stimulated by the challenge ahead, inside your brain, a million tiny flashes of light light up. Freshly illuminated and full of courage, your spirit sets out to conquer new territories.
BALANCE (23 Sep-23 Oct). In the past, you viewed a red flag as important information to weigh against more favorable ratings of the topic. Now you see a red flag as a signal to turn around, swerve to avoid, or run in the opposite direction.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24, Nov. 21). You are so relaxed in yourself that you can settle down and enjoy any environment, even completely foreign. You respectfully feel at ease and at home wherever you go.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21). Awareness invigorates a tired scene. Boredom goes away when you concentrate well. Once you have logged into the deeper levels, you will notice a lot of fascinations that you have missed before.
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19). Abundance isn’t always about eating well, traveling in style, or having beautiful things. There is a divine intelligence that distributes the blessings. Send a mental note of thanks for what you recently received.
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18). You see the same clear path to smart choice that everyone sees. But you are not only smart; You are intelligent. You can create benefits beyond the traditional course of benefits that this route is known to provide.
PISCES (February 19-March 20). Infatuation can strike anywhere. You can become fascinated by a person, business, color, idea, or area of interest. The energy of this state of mind is as powerful as it is temporary.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (October 19). When you look back this year, what you did will count a lot less than who you were with. Social pleasure is fulfilled. He will teach you about yourself and send you on adventures. You will be working towards a goal with tremendous success that never really looks like a big victory; it’s incremental, but life-changing, daily progress. Taurus and Sagittarius love you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 4, 20, 31 and 17.
HALLOWEEN PANTHEON: WITCHES, PART ONE: From the big black hat to the little black cat, most of the characteristics associated with the traditional Halloween witch are shared with European brewers in the Middle Ages. Breweries were dominated by women who learned a lot about herbs and plants to make their beer. The cat was to keep the mice out of the grain. The hats were intended for advertising in the market. It was known that a woman who stood out from the crowd because of her large pointy hat was probably selling drinks. The six-sided stars were linked to a beer rating system. Even the advanced age associated with witch trails. In the mid-15th century, some villages prohibited women of childbearing age from making beer, so most hat wearers would have been over 40. worked well. In the late 1700s, master brewers were mostly men.
A recipe looks a lot like a spell. It’s easy to see how the imagery of stirring over a cauldron while casting ingredients could just be, well, cooking. Certainly, experiments have taken place and claims have been made about the various medicinal qualities of various beers.
