Wellness Practices - Muti

Muti

Native to Southern Africa, this alternative therapy gets its name from the Zulu word umuthi, meaning “tree.” Its purported uses vary from (failed) attempts at bringing luck to the South African team at the 2010 soccer World Cup to supposedly treating erectile dysfunction and sexually transmitted diseases. Animal parts and herbs are central to muti. Many South Africans are quietly dismissive of the practice, but they’ve heard enough stories of how it has helped save lives and even aided in prison escapes to know better than to forcefully dispute its powers.

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)

Aries understand that sometimes helping a friend out can result in a bit of extra expense. As long as you can afford it, allow yourself the ability to heal a difficult situation for another person. Not only will you feel especially (and maybe surprisingly) good about it, you bank a few good karma points for any future issue. So try to pay it forward.

TAURUS (APRIL 21-MAY 21)

While it is nice to feel that you have total control of many aspects of your life, there may be times when bosses seem to hold all of the power. That is the way life works sometimes, Taurus. You may decide to quit, move or go with the corporate flow but whatever you decide, after careful consideration, will work out the best for you in the long term.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

Geminis seek the right balance between folding in to their personal space and opening themselves up to the world. How you decide to do healing and outreach will depend on where you see yourself in the next year. Are you ready to take on the world or do you prefer to meditate and continue a period of contemplation?

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

There will have to be a balance between what friends need and what lovers need. Cancers who have been trying to diplomatically balance between two competing camps will find that making a decision will be the best way of solving for the present and for the future. The real question is – what do YOU want? Then make your best move.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

Relationships may need a bit more attention than usual, Leo. But how does that factor with the requirements of an increasingly hectic job? This is the time for great prioritization and a cutting away of what is no longer necessary or worth your time. By the end of this period you will not only feel less stressed but far more effective.

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)

Virgos may have the urge to travel but may also feel a bit hemmed in by job responsibilities. Will you have the time to get away? Will things fall apart without you there to do it? It is all up to you – can you find ways of streamlining what you do and who you do it with so that you can feel freer and more flexible? I think the answer is yes.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)

This can be a time of feeling unfettered, relaxed and totally free or it may be a time of intense connection that might at some time be a bit draining … but passionate. Which feeling are you aiming for, Libra? How much oomph does your life need now? Balance you lust for love with your lust for life and see how much fun both can be.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)

This time of year can often bring extra stress between family and other personal relationships. The secret to your success now, Scorpio, will be to find ways of making both groups feel loved, needed and relaxed. You are very strategic by nature so there is nothing preventing you from negotiating successfully. Plan and pounce.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)

Work projects and other detailed obligations will have their way of piling on now, Sagittarius. That means that you will need to be extra diplomatic and convincing to get others to pitch in and do what you really want them to do. While diplomacy is not always your strong suit, you will now find ways to be very, very compelling. Good!

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)

As much as you want to make up for lost time during the pandemic, there may be pastimes that are a bit too expensive for you now, Capricorn. But your choices are all very tempting and your desire is great. The best advice I can give you is to explore all fun options and see what you best achieve within your budget. You will still find lots to do!

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)

How much time does family need and how much of your energy are you willing to give to them? This is the big question, Aquarius. It may be that you can easily balance their needs with yours and make everyone happy. But if it becomes an either-or decision, see what you can do to preserve your own energy while still seeming to be present for relatives.

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)

As intuitive as you feel right now, Pisces, how much of your predictions are you will to share with others? Some of your great ideas can become fairly profitable. Others may require too much input and too much risk. Pull back and meditate on this for now. Revelations will put you into a prime position for future rewards.

Lucky Numbers for the Week of November 26, 2021

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But it is also helpful to have a list of lucky numbers to help spur the good fortune ... or fortunes. So with that in mind, here are some lucky numbers that can be used in any helpful way. I gazed into a pool of water, Nostradamus-like, and contemplated the cosmos. Then I mixed the tarot cards and allowed the spirits to guide me to the cards that represent the lucky numbers for this week. Nothing is guaranteed but who knows ....?

I choose eight numbers because 8 is the number of of wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of November 26-December 2, 2021:

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)

There is nothing you cannot do or achieve now, Aries, once you set your mind and heart to it. What that means in terms of next steps is taking a global view of even the smallest of issues and rolling out solutions that help multitudes rather than individuals. What can you accomplish when your vision is so vast and expansive? Quite a lot.

TAURUS (APRIL 21-MAY 21)

Taureans are sexy souls and can manifest their destiny any way they want now. You feel free to roam and see where love leads you but I suggest that you plan your journey so that it takes you to exactly who and where you want to go. You can love deeply and completely so don’t waste your gifts on just anyone. Choose someone special.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

Relationships take on an entirely different “feel” now, Gemini. And that is because you are realizing that balance and diplomacy can help you achieve results in ways that flirtation and a bit of manipulation doesn’t. Choose the high road and see where it can lead in specific partnerships. You will emerge stronger and much happier.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

Not only do you feel much more robust and energetic, you will find that you are interested in exploring many different things now. Cancers are advised to get out of the house and safely breathe some fresh air all around town. It can lift your spirits and make you feel that you can achieve anything. Spoiler alert – you really can!

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

Leos know how to really have fun this week and why not? Your mind is full of creative, festive activity ideas and you are bursting with enthusiasm to get started on them. The difficult part will be choosing exactly what to do. Let your muse run free and see who will join you in your adventures. Before you know it, it will turn into one big party.

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)

Turn your attention to your home life and see how you can expand the range of what you do and who you decide to do it with. Family becomes more of a focus and home-based activities become the preferred thing to do. Where do you go from here, Virgo? Will it be to a completely new living space or a refresh of where you are?

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)

Your words will have much greater impact now, Libra. Your vision is global and your thought process is both heartfelt and strategic. You also have the ability to schmooze and move anyone to your way of thinking. So share your best ideas with those who can help move them along and see where they can take you. Maybe everywhere!

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)

Money figures prominently in your thoughts and actions now, Scorpio. Not only can you more easily earn it but any investment you make through your careful research will pay off. So don’t delay in making your dough rise to new heights. You will be able to bake some impressive gains and prepare yourself for a fluffy retirement.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)

The world is served up to you on a golden plate now, Sagittarius. That means that you will be able to capture the attention and imagination of some fairly powerful and influential people. What do you want to achieve through the next year? Maybe it will involve people and places that you have been dreaming of. Make your fantasy a reality.

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)

Start to plan your next big strategic moves while your intuition is sharp and your ESP is especially focused, Capricorn. Not only are you able to discern the right path through all of the mental fog, you may find outside forces are there and ready to help you. Embrace all the good karma and see where your cosmic path leads.

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)

Friends are there when you need them, Aquarius. And you may find that you need them a bit more now. Companionship is high on your list of must-haves and the ability to connect with people is especially strong. So expand your social circle and see who comes into your personal orbit. There are some remarkable folks out there for you.

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)

What is it that you need to accomplish in your professional path, Pisces? Whatever you set your mind to do, you can achieve it now. Figure out what you want and start the process to get it. Don’t go into halfway measures. Only the biggest and boldest goals should be considered now. You are in the winner’s circle. Show them what you’ve got.
