What will they think of next? Most healthy products taste like cardboard to me but now I think I have found one that defies the taste rule. Xocai chocolates are said to have New Age ingredients and it is being marketed at tasting parties in New York City, where it has found some enthusiastic distributors.
Xocai is being touted as healthy chocolate that contains anti-oxidants. They say that Xocai is very rich in a compound called epicatechin. But let's keep a perspective on this - There are some reviews of it's efficacy. If you are interested in sampling or even gifting some of these new age treats, check out these Xocai products to get started.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Rams might be on the verge of a major professional breakthrough. Grab for the corner office as new opportunities present themselves. Try to take a calculated risk. You may experience a temporary financial zetz in the process but it is worth the cost. Often, giving up a little on the front end reaps bigger rewards on the backend... or so they say.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Travel may have its challenges but don’t let these small bumps in the road run you off the highway. The next few weeks promise to be a time to remember for Bulls with a bawdy sense of adventure. I predict either a randy Roman holiday or an unforgettable evening with “roaming Randy”. My crystal ball is cloudy on which is which so remain flexible.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Twins may be faced with the daunting task of having to choose between the tried and true or the new and exciting in love. Which way will your heart and your other parts go? The fates spur you to an ultimate decision by electrifying your every word and creating monumental changes in your life with every word. Hmmm do tell!
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
An old broom sweeps clean for all meticulous Crabs. You secretly yearn for changes in your home life and are now ready to take action. Whether this means a change of residential venue or a frank discussion with a certain family member, is up to you. Whatever project you undertake, tackle it sooner than later. After that, it’s party time and domestic harmony be damned.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Most of the week seems to revolve around your job, but even plucky Lions can’t concentrate on the day to day for long. Finish up old projects and close out the old year. Then draw your attention to mergers and acquisitions ... in partnerships. If you are still trawling for a big catch, use this time to bait your hook and start fishing around. Feel a nibble??
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Anything having to do creative pastimes should be pursued with vigor. Transformative personal changes take place as your artistic muse goes into overdrive. Virgins capture the imaginations of millions but may be reined in by time constraints between work and play. Remember that sometimes even geniuses must scrub the bathroom and do laundry.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Even though your self confidence might have taken a bit of a beating, Libras are full of plucky holiday spirit now. Good luck is at hand throughout the next weeks so ring out with the old and chime in with the new! Clear away the cosmic debris and welcome the new year like a newborn babe; with a bottle in your mouth and in need of a change of underwear.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorps manage to party hearty this party hearty season. You’re destined to make a big social splash so dress appropriately (no cellophane underwear unless requested...). At the same time, there may be a few stones tossed in your job path. Keep up on the day to day so you don’t get bouldered over or dissipated. But getting stoned on eggnog might be an option...
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Can money buy happiness? You’re tempted to buy gifts galore now. Archers may alienate partners with their mercenary meanderings if they exceed the spending limit. Demonstrate your devotion in time for the new year festivities or risk spending that evening with your aunt instead of your sugar daddy or red hot momma.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
This is the perfect time to reconnect with friends and get involved in group activities. Caps are going through a transitional phase in their careers and can gain great insight and direction from others during this tumultuous time. Money is a source of surprises and excess. Try to rein it in so you have enough dough for some really expensive champagne.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine. Isn’t that the way things work? Aquarians learn the hard way that the more they give the more they get. Karmic compensation demands that you dedicate holiday time to improving conditions in your community. I suspect that all your good deeds will be amply rewarded. No, not with cold cash...
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces may experience a spark of romance on the job this week. But beware of hanging around under the mistletoe at the office party. It may sweep you off your feet and cloud your better judgement. There are a few hidden things that demand inspection and clarification. Look before you leap, however. Then, if the world is still your oyster, slurp it up!

Lucky Numbers for the Week of November 26, 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 November 26-December 2, 2010:
17, 23, 35, 37, 58, 59, 78, 80
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
Syfy Renews Two Paranormal Television Series
Good news. Syfy announced that it renewed two of its original reality series:
- Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files was renewed for a sophomore season with the new season beginning production early next year. The series, airing on Thursdays at 10p, is co-produced by BASE Productions and Universal Networks International.
- Ghost Hunters International will return for a third season. Seven remaining episodes in the show's second season will commence January 5 at 9p traveling to legendary ghost hot spots around the world. Season three will begin production in early 2011. The series is produced in association with Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television.
I love the ghost hunting series and have tried a bit of it myself with some success. For those who want to get a handle on the spirit world, try The Everything Ghost Hunting Book: Tips, tools, and techniques for exploring the supernatural world (Everything (New Age))
Long live Paranormal and Ghost Hunters! Many new age oriented programs don't last. Maybe because the audiences are very specialized? Sadly, Medium, one of my favorite series, has just been cancelled.
