Ghosts and Politics - A Must See Event on October 6, 2020

GhostsAtlas Obscura is offering what appears to be a fascinating program on spiritualism and politics to be held virtually on October 6, 2020 at 7p eastern time.

Here is the blurb:

Atlas Obscura is excited to present a lively and intellectually vibrant presentation, with PEN Award-winning historian and occult scholar Mitch Horowitz, who will explore the little known historical ties between alternative spirituality and radical politics!

During this hour-long presentation, Mitch will dig into the connection between Spiritualism and the emergence of suffragism; the magickal system of hoodoo in the life of abolitionist hero Frederick Douglass; the trance medium who became America’s first female presidential candidate; the mind-power metaphysics of black nationalist pioneer Marcus Garvey; the socialist author behind “The Science of Getting Rich;” and more! Mitch unveils not only our shared secret history, but how occult figures and thought systems have shaped our response to the current moment. This is edge-of-your seat history—veritable and unknown.

Only $10. Order your tickets here.

 

 

 


Voting Booth Feng Shui

This previous post bears repeating --

Voting Booth Feng Shui

Last year I found some information of how the placement of voting booths in a polling site can impact how people vote. This post, called Voting Booth Feng Shui might be even more applicable for this year's Presidential election.

The original article was from the New York Times and told about how a team from Stanford University conducted a study showing that where a voting booth is located can make people vote against abortion (if the booth is in a church) or more open to educational funding (if the booth is located in a school). 

Let's be cognizant of where and how we vote this year.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Any long term plans may take a wide change of direction now, Aries. Be prepared to be flexible as the fates can toss various impediments in your path. But these impediments are not deal-breakers for what you want. They can provide valuable life lessons that you will need to have to see progress. So get ready, get set and go once you see the right opening.

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Those Taureans who have been tuck at home or in some form of holding pattern may see a big break coming soon. This may include detours from where you really want to go but these off track meanderings have a good purpose. They will offer you new perspectives and ideas that will give you a refreshed view of life. Think big now. No ... bigger.

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Love affairs can sweep you off your feet now, Gemini. Ask yourself whether your lofty emotions are based in reality or a dream. Your heart yearns for meaning and deeper connection and this is a good thing. Just keep your priorities as stable as possible. There could be other monumental happenings in your life as well at this time. At least it won’t be boring!

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Any relationship that needs a bit more spark or a total change of direction will get it now. Prepare to decide on a course of action, Cancer as new information and heightened emotions will shift views and expectations. There can also be surprising opportunities where new relationships can form when and where you least expect them. This landscape is full of possibilities.

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos may feel full of energy and pep now or, on the other hand, may feel a little bit under the weather and tired. It all depends on how well you have been preparing yourself with diet, exercise and stress reduction. Balanced diets and a regular medical regime will do wonders for you. So if improvement is needed, start it now. It is never too late.

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Your creativity hits a high point now, Virgo. That may mean that you are full of great ideas and festive thoughts or it could mean that you find more time to be playful. But thoughts and play without some constructive application will be wasted opportunity. This energy won’t last forever. Whatever you tackle make sure it wins the game.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Your relationships with small family-like groups may undergo some significant change now. Maybe the dynamics have shifted or there has been some itchy interactions that need to be scratched. The best course of action is to carefully assess what is going on, what is on everyone’s mind and see if there is common ground. We are in stressful time. Take it slow, Libra.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Anything you say now, no matter how innocuous you think it is, will have larger impact and ramifications than you expect. Scorpios are usually very careful and strategic but now emotions may lead you to say things that, while very true, are not timed for the greatest positive impact. Take a breath. Count to ten. Then say it as diplomatically as possible.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Your finances will have its ups and downs now as the fates seem to shack, rattle and roll your money tree. But you are optimistic and savvy, Sagittarius. And you also have some great ideas to regain your fiscal balance. Some changes will be good life lessons and valuable for your future success. For now, get thrifty and do your research.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Your very being and sense of where you are in the world is coming in for a great reevaluation, Capricorn. Are you where you want to be? Are you still on the right path? Are you surrounding yourself with the right people? Answers will be revealed over the next few weeks. Then you can go out and conquer anything and anyone you want to conquer..

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Anything that has been hidden from you will be revealed in a fairly dramatic and powerful way now, Aquarius. Obstacles that you couldn’t figure out suddenly come into view. This is no the time to sit back and let fortune tempest toss you. It is time to use everything that you are now learning to take action and go forward in a deliberate and successful way.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
What is it about friends now that gets you so crazy? Your social connections may be undergoing a significant change in direction that may veer away from what you are feeling ant thinking. But it is a good time to listen to them and question your own opinions. You may double down in your beliefs or you may shift. Open up and see what happens. Pisces.

Lucky Numbers for the Week of September 25, 2020

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 September 25- October 1, 2020:

2, 11, 29, 30, 45, 48, 56, 76

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
