Healing Foods

This fascinating article in Atlas Obscura talks about the power of healing foods. With a long history of research, it is now possible to access the archive --

Half a century after Professor Wayland Hand started it, a group of UCLA researchers has made the Archive of Healing available to the public. Now a searchable database, the Archive of Healing includes 700,000 pieces of data, digitized from more than 1 million index cards, ranging from folk sayings and rituals to incantations and recipes. The archive represents 50 years of research spanning six continents, two centuries of ethnographic study, and 3,200 journal articles. According to the current director, David Delgado Shorter, Professor of World Arts and Cultures/Dance at UCLA, it’s one of the five largest archives of healing-related knowledge in the world. The UCLA archive is unique in the breadth of cultures it represents—and in its approach to that representation.

No matter how uncreative you may think you are, at this new moment you are an artistic genius. Your imagination runs wild and there are suddenly so many great and fun things to do, it will be difficult to choose. But choose you must, Aries. This energy is intense and fleeting. Don’t waste it on thinking about it too long or hard. The moment for your greatness is here.


Whatever family or home based obligations you have to do, do them now, Taurus. Not only are you infused with energy and oomph, you also know just what to do to get the group together and in harmony. Certain long deferred home projects may get started. But also, we are on the verge of summer vacation time. Maybe a family reunion is a good way to go?

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

You have some powerful ideas and compelling opinions, Gemini. Maybe it is time to get them all out there and into the general public discourse. There are many ways to have community impact. Start a local movement, run for office, volunteer for an important initiative. The most important thing is to step out into the public eye and shine your bright light.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

If money has been a concern or has been tight, this is a good time to focus on your finances and put some long term investment plan into action. Cancers might even be able to splurge on something nice for themselves or for loved ones. The main thing is to find the happy balance between saving and spending that makes you feel happy and secure. You find it now.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

Leo’s are full of oomph and self- motivation. Take all of this confidence and charisma and spread it around town. Find opportunities to expand your circle of influence. Meet as many new people (in person or virtually) as possible to gain further insights into the best direction for you to take to make things happen. Seeds you plant now sprout in a few weeks.


As much as you think you know what is going on, there is a lot more activity behind the scenes than you realize or expect. All of this bubbling energy will come in very handy for you as it will give you a cosmic push in the right direction. Why ask why? Just go with the flow and see how much benefit the good and energetic forces deliver to you, Virgo.


Make new friendships now, Libra. You have more than your usual amount of charm and charisma. In fact, you are almost irresistible. Join new organizations or clubs or get involved in a group of fun and interesting people. Maybe even consider taking a new course of study and expanding your interests. Who knows where it can all lead?


Any long term plans that have been deferred can be put into action now, Scorpio. So if you are thinking of shifting careers, send out some feelers and see who responds. If you want to stay on your current path, do the necessary things to get at least one step up the corporate ladder. You have some great plans. Now is the time to rev them up and forward.


While you may not have traveled as much as you would have liked this past year, this is a great time to begin planning and actually going on a few adventures. You are feeling energetic and full of zest and will be able to find others who are as excited as you are to join in the fun. What does the summer hold for you, Sagittarius? I am excited to find out.  


Even shy Capricorns will have a romantic and sexy rush now. You are ready to go, go, go and just need to find the right partner to go with you. Show how much you care with demonstrable actions and caring words. Make your soul mate feel special and they will make you feel special too. For those seeking, go and seek. You will find.


Relationships become not only more important but fairly vital to your plans. Any one-to-one partnership, whether for business or pleasure, will offer you opportunities to improve your life and strengthen your confidence. So put the effort into reaching out, Aquarius, and making those connections of communication and commitment unbreakable.


Pisces may have been feeling extra tired over these past few weeks. Now you have a blast of energy and strength that can be used to accomplish a variety of long deferred tasks and small jobs. Go through your to do list and do it! Things will go quickly and easily. Then you will have the rest of the summer to just relax and totally enjoy.

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 June 11-17, 2021:

Aries find themselves caring deeply and often about people around them. It can be a time of heightened emotions, especially around family members. It is all good and about time. The week brings a refreshing evolution in how you relate to close companions and, soon enough, this will translate into more ways of enjoying life and just having fun. Embrace the moment.
TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Not only does your communication hit right at the heart of things, you are also compelling enough to more easily change hearts and minds in areas of your life that hold the greatest importance for you. So don’t sit back and wait. Go for it, Taurus. The time is now to forge new pathways for yourself and gain the security and strength that you have been seeking to take your personal life to a new level.
GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Spoil yourself a little more, Gemini. You have always loved a little extra bit of luxury in your life and now there are more ways to feel alive and a bit pampered. (Often without spending too much money) Discovering a new treat may lead to many more of them. Is there a way to share your discoveries? Will you become the next internet influencer sensation? Anything is possible...
CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
People gravitate to you more and more now, Cancer. Embrace the opportunity to meet many new people and you will discover many comfortable ways of interacting with your many fans. But all of this popularity should have a practical purpose too. You have had time to gather and develop some great new ideas for projects going forward. Start putting them into action.
LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
So much good stuff is swirling around you, Leo. How can you best capture some of it and make it your personal destiny? This is the best time to rediscover and fully reveal the mystery of success and love. Find helpful spirits that can make your dreams a reality. Unleash yourself from restricting behaviors and pessimistic thoughts. The world reopens and so now must you.
Social interactions go smoothly as you find more confidence and interest in breaking out again into widening friendships, clubs and organizations. Don’t be shy Virgo. Find safe ways to explore new connections that foster your passions. You might have developed a few new interests in the past several months. There is a lot going on out there and you will want to be part of the action... in person.
Getting back into the swim of your career might have taken a bit of a push before, but now you are revved and ready to go, go, go. What is your ultimate goal, Libra? Where are you right now and what path do you need to take to get you to where you want to go? All of these questions can now be answered. At some point you may want to ask a trusted friend but I think you have all the answers within you.
It a been a long time since you felt comfortable planning a vacation but this may be a good point to start your planning, Scorpio. The vistas are opening up and your imagination is building up a wonderful adventure that will need to be put into action soon. And you won’t be traveling alone. Before you know it many others will want to be a part of this great escape. It could become a party scene.
Sexy Sagittarians suddenly begin to feel feisty and on the move and groove. Go with your amorous feelings and see how you can charge up the scene. It can be the perfect time to find your soulmate or, if you are currently in a love relationship, make it stronger, more exciting and very lusty. Enjoy every passionate moment and try to find ways to make it last and last.
If you felt some form of isolation in the past few months, there are now opportunities to reconnect and feel more involved in partnerships. Reach out and strengthen the physical bonds that zooming may have helped but may not have completely fulfilled. Maybe it will be going back to the office or maybe it will involve family or close friends. Wherever you connect, enjoy every moment, Capricorn.
Action is the word of the week, Aquarius. You feel much more charged and robust. The cosmos gives you an added jolt of oomph and ambition to make something, anything, happen. Remember all of those to-do projects? You now have the energy and enthusiasm to not only do but do well. And you will also have many willing helpers to get in on the fun. Oh, let’s not call it work....
It is time to get creative, inspirational and romantic all at the same time, Pisces. Optimism and a fresh perspective light up your life and gives you hope for the future. What activities can you plan that will not only deliver but also add an extra jolt of luck? Parties come to mind as do some massive art installation or music extravaganza. Whatever it is, do it with gusto. Ho, ho, ho!
