Astrology By the Glass - Gemini

Gemini There are twelve of these "Astrology By the Glass" posts coming up over the next few months which describes each astrology sign's drinking habits and preferences. I found this in my file of favorite columns from various authors and sources. Unfortunately there is no byline and I have no idea who wrote this. So if you know who, please let me know and I will give full credit and a link.


After reading this, check out The

Intoxicated Zodiac for recipes by sign. Cheers!

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Drinking style: Geminis can drink without changing their behaviour much -- they're so naturally chatty and short-attention-spanned that it's just hard to tell sometimes. They can amaze you by conversing with finesse and allusion, then doing something to belie an extremely advanced state of intoxication, like puking in your shoe. Geminis possess the magic ability to flirt successfully (and uninfuriatingly, which is very tricky) with several people at once. They like to order different cocktails every round -- repetition is boring -- and may create a theme (like yellow drinks: beer, sauvignon blanc and limoncello) for their own amusement.

Trademark cocktails: Easily bored Geminis need some stimulation in their drinks -- those with two parts, like a black and tan (or just a double), are particularly appealing. Otherwise, they'll drink all over the map, ordering frou-frou drinks to add to their collection of cocktail monkeys or going for whiskey rocks because they're feeling rather noir. Gemini rules the herb anise -- make some home-infused anise vodka as a gift.

Drinking buddies: George Bush Sr., Johnny Depp, Rupert Everett, Boy George, Allen Ginsberg, Angelina Jolie, John Kennedy, Ian McKellen, Kylie Minogue, Morrissey

Horoscope For the Week of May 24, 2010

How mouthy can an Aries be? Fairly mouthy this week, it seems. You’ve had a few things percolating on your mind. Now your manifesto comes through loud and clear. Take full measure of your ideas, compose your thoughts and open wide. It is as if your opinions cannot be contained and, just like condensed heat, they burst like a volcano. Oh, do I smell gas?

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Bulls will tend to focus their attention on the bottom line this week. Money can become the obsessive root of all happiness. With it you are royalty. Without it you are a toad. That is because your demand exceeds your monetary supply at this time. Home chores suddenly become high maintenance. What will you tip the delivery person?

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
There is nothing as alluring the thought of you... at least you think so this week. It is time for you to launch new projects and get any new projects into high gear. And, as luck would have it, you find a personal talisman to charm your spirits and bolster your energies. Got a tiger in your tank? Let them launch you to the stratosphere!

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Your personal nasty gremlins have a way of disappearing in the light of day this week. Crabs can leave their psychological baggage at the curb side without a second thought. Why not add a bit of camaraderie into the party mix while you fee so free and unencumbered. Celebrate your free spirit and party down with many other free spirits.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Stop feeling like a wallflower, Leo. This week there is no stopping your social ascent. Friends and their assorted cohorts gravitate to your door. Does that mean that you should wait for the hordes to come to you? Heck no! Holding back will not be a theme of your personal party plan. The sky is the now limit. Why remain at sea level?

If bosses sit up and take notice, you should take notice of their attention and make sure that your best corporate moves really count. There is great opportunity for you whatever your dream of professional glory is at this time. If you have your eye on the brass ring, you can snag it and bag it now. Heck, instead of mere brass, make it a platinum.... corporate credit card.

There are times to sit back and relax and there are times to dive into the general swim and go fishing for adventure. Rather than feel like a pair of ragged claws, this week has you scuttling across the floors of silent seas in high style. Go fishing for compliments. Your personal best nets a school of admirers. You just need the right bait, Libra.

Even mysterious Scorpios can't help but feel bold and beautiful this week. Plug yourself into the circuit, recharge your personal magnetism and see who you can stimulate. You may just produce a shocking new you who will catch the eye of a particularly electrifying  companion. Feel the surge?? You’ve got the amps. Now start glowing.

There are those Archers who say that it is better not to be reined in; that freedom brings its own rewards. And yet, you are now best served by being attached and committed. Partners connect with you on an almost spiritual level and you may just find that being reined in or tied down lends a certain excitement to life. How exciting however is entirely up to you....

Caps are up to any task no matter how dreary and pedantic this week. You may begin to feel like a housefrau, tirelessly toiling in the backroom. Lucky for you a new broom sweeps clean and bring a party hearty crowd to your door that helps make any miserable job fun and exciting. If you can’t get to the dance, it may just come to you.

Aquarians just want to have fun this week. Maybe you will be inspired to do something a bit more outrageous or something that will catch the eye of a powerbroker who can make the earth move for you. Let your creative muse take you to new heights and into new directions. Maybe as high as a penthouse apartment with a setback terrace ...?

Your home is a beehive of activity this week. Pals gravitate to your orbit and give you “hearth burn”. But Pisces could attract more traffic to their front door than they expect. Word gets out  about your considerable charisma and it moves into international levels. Crazed, mesmerized fans beat a path to your door from thither and yon. Hello?? Anybody home??

Lucky Numbers for the week of May 21, 2010

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But I think 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 wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of May 21-27, 2010:

10, 11, 24, 28, 30, 44, 57, 63

There are many ways to delve into your own consciousness to find luck and intuition. Try reading Dream Power/Improve Your Luck (Super Strength Series) and see if your dreams give you any clues and premonitions. Here's a guide to the best books available this month.

Radio Waves From Outer Space

The New Scientist reports that we are receiving radio waves from a far distant universe that could be indicating some form of life out there. The waves are coming from a nearyby galaxay called M82 and is something that scientists have never seen before.
The pulse is very different from other waves and is not fading or changing in any way. It is leading scientists to believe that there is life in this faraway galaxy. The weird thing is that this radio emission does not fit the pattern of previous radio emissions from supernovae. Those usually get brighter over a few weeks and then fade away over months. This new source has hardly changed in brightness over the course of a year, and its spectrum is steady.
Yet it does seem to be moving – and fast: its apparent sideways velocity is four times the speed of light.
So what is this thing? Scientists are baffled. Some think it is a dying star or some other object of debris that is emitting some type of magnetic force. But no one is sure.

Five Spices to Improve Your Brain

Spices I can't tell you how many times I feel like my brain is like a computer with the hour glass running. The information I need is there ... inside my head ... somewhere but I just can't reach it. Am I slowing down or do I just need more Turmeric in my diet?


According to a great article in AARP magazine, there has been a lot of research conducted on the impact of certain spices on our brian functionality. Here are some great spices that can be easily added to your diet that help brain functions:

Turmeric (also known as Curcumin) is just one spice that scientists have found to improve brain function - actually it breaks up brain plaques that cause Alzheimers. Turmeric is found in curry but if you don't know how to cook curry, you can find ways of adding Curcumin into dishes like tuna fish or you can sprinkle it on green beans and bake them in the oven until they are deliciously crisp.

Saffron is said to improve your mood and works like an anti-depressant. So if you are feeling down, add some saffron to your rice dishes and see if can help elevate your mood.

Ginger is known to be very healthy in tea where it helps allieve migranes and headaches. That spice, in conjunction with green tea is especially healthy by not only combatting headaches but also cancer.

Garlic - I can't begin to tell you about all the wonderful health benefits from garlic - there are so many. Garlic is said to help our immune system but now scientists are finding that it also helps prevent brain cancer by eliminating brain cancer cells. Eat it any way you like - it goes well with so many foods whether garlic potatoes, any type pf green vegetable like spinach or beans or even just on a pizza.

Cinnamon builds up speed, gives us extra energy and is generally good for speeding up brain functioning and helping you stay focused. It also helps regulate blood sugar levels.
