Psychic Blog: Psychics Foretell (astrology, free psychic readings)

By: Lulu Gleason

 

 
So I have been doing Cartomancy for a while now as we’ve all seen from my first experience in my last blog. It’s been nagging me to do a follow up since I’ve been neglecting my tarot studies for this slight diversion off my card path. I had the opportunity to test out my Cartomancy skills with Erin on a subject everyone always seems to want more information about. Her money situation and how it will grow. The results were interesting and dealt with many things surrounding Erin’s money issues.

 

 

Row 1:
The first row in the spread that was chosen, dealt with past events or people involved in her life and question. They indicated that she had three friends who had helped her on the money path. Friends whom the deck suggested she spend more time with to help enhance her financial status with some good advice. Perhaps even encourage some great ideas for investing or ways to grow her money to benefit her lifestyle.

 

 

Row 2:
The second row deals with present issues, how Erin was feeling and the present influences that could lead to answers to her money flow issues. The second row explained how Erin had recently been hit with a blow to her finances. She had experienced a recent illness that had set her back. But through it all she needed to keep her work flow going smoothly even though others will tell her otherwise. She might not get the payback she would like but through her hard work, money will eventually improve.

 

 

Row 3:
The third row usually has the outcome of the question that was brought forth to the cards and spread. Erin’s cards indicated that her money issues would evolve but to watch out for a male energy that could try to influence her towards another direction which would lead to tragic loss. Lies and liars circulate around her and want her to step out of her steady path for their own gain. However, a visit from someone important to her or a possible home move would be in her benefit especially for her money situation.

 

 

How it ties together:
Erin needs to spend more time with the influential people in her life that are there to help her through her darkest hours. Times are rough currently but she can and will overcome it all if she stays strong and keeps her work flow steady. Hard work and much time will result in small paybacks right away however as she progresses on her path things will change and the recognition she deserves will come. There’s a large amount of deception around her that could be disastrous. A male energy will try to influence their ideas but with good friends and a steady mind set Erin will overcome the odds and grow her money to where it needs to be.

Common Myths About Psychics

May 22, 2013, 12:00 AM

0

By: Office Staff

 

 

We wanted to write a bit about some of the myths that are out there about psychics and what they are all about. There are many conflicting battles out there some saying psychics are never right, some saying psychics are never wrong, they can read everyone, they can’t read everyone, etc., The Foretell staff is playing Psychic Myth Busters and busting some of the most commonly heard or read about misconceptions about psychic advisers. To hear some frequently asked questions you can check them out here.

 

 

Myth: Psychic readings are make believe and only tell clients what they want to hear. Psychics will put positive thoughts into customers’ heads and that person will then have it in their head that everything will turn out perfectly as planned.

Bust: Honestly, readings can go either way. It all depends on the energy that the psychic is picking up from who they are reading. A good psychic will express what they are picking up from who they are reading, whether it’s good news or bad news, and then they will offer their guidance or suggest ways that the person can take action in that particular situation.

 

 

Myth: Psychics don’t need to ask questions. They shouldn’t have to ask questions they should automatically know what you’re calling about.

Bust: This one is heard a lot. Getting a psychic reading really depends on the connection between the psychic and the reader. Generally, if there’s a good connection the psychic will not have to ask too many questions. When psychics connect with someone their minds are trying to process so much information that they may ask minor questions to make sure they are keeping on point with what you had asked them.

 

 

Myth: Results of psychic readings are bogus and made up. If what the psychic tells you didn’t come true it’s because you didn’t follow what they told you to do correctly and so on.

Bust: A good psychic offers suggestions on how to go about resolving or achieving a certain situation or goal, they can offer you their insight on what steps you might take on getting to where you want to be but when it comes down to it everyone is in control of his or her own destiny. No one else can control someone else’s life unless they let them.

 

 

Myth: Psychics can automatically read everyone around them. Psychics can read everyone they try to connect with.

Bust: The ability to read an individual requires deliberate focus that can, quite frankly, be exhausting. To avoid burnout most professional psychics ignore, shut down or tune out when they are not working. If they didn’t they would probably go crazy from the onslaught of information around them. If a person does not want to be read or does not want to know the truth, they can subconsciously throw up a negative energy field that blocks the universal vibrations the psychic needs to do an accurate reading. That is why it is very important for you to concentrate on “what you need to know” not “what you want to hear” if you want an accurate reading.

 

 

Myth: All psychics have the ability to read the future, the past and the present.

Bust: Every psychic has different areas of expertise. Not every psychic have the same abilities and you may find some that can do all three, you may find some that can only see the present and past, or some that can only see the future. There are many different psychics out there and their levels of abilities vary.

 

 

Myth: Psychics are like witches. They can put spells upon you and cause havoc and chaos in your life.

Bust: Psychics are not supernatural beings. They are people like you and me. They can in no way cause you any harm or put any spell or curse on you. They do have special gifts but in no way does that make them a witch. They are here to help you and guide you through any troubles you may be facing in the present or future.

Gemini Hair

May 20, 2013, 12:00 AM

By: Tammy
 

 

Gemini women are one of the luckiest in the zodiac, it’s common that they look at least a decade younger than their actual age, and are blessed with sparkling eyes and good facial symmetry. Just look at Gemini celeb Angelina Jolie. What does this mean for their hair? For one thing, they can pull off the most fashionable, youthful and trend setting styles well into old age. Gemini’s love change, so more often than not they will be constantly changing their hairstyle, length and hair color.

 

Hollywood megastar Angelina Jolie is as well known for her box office success as she is for her humanitarian work, but on top of all that, we are totally in love with her hair! With her bee-stung lips and chiseled cheekbones, it’s no wonder Angelina Jolie needs very little in the way of cosmetics. Although in her youth she experimented with platinum crops and pitch-black extensions, these days the mother of six sports an easy-to-style long dark mane. In fact, despite her show-stopping red-carpet appearances with partner Brad Pitt, it has been said that the U.N. ambassador is at her best without any enhancement.

 

We love her lush brunette hair; it suits her peachy complexion and gorgeous sparkly eyes down to the ground! She has experimented with length and style and for a while she went a few shades darker too, but she always returns to her trademark look – chocolate brown with caramel hues.

 

To achieve Angelina’s signature look (the sexy mysterious waves); use some mousse at the roots of your hair, and a silicone-based product on the rest of your hair. Divide hair into two sections, a top one and a bottom one, for easier blow-drying. Pin the top section up and begin drying the bottom section. Blow-dry your hair straight. Use a large vent or paddle brush and dry sections of the hair from the roots to the ends, keeping the nozzle of your blow-dryer aimed at a downward angle to prevent frizz and flyaway hairs.

 

To increase the volume at the roots of your hair, capture sections of your hair with your brush and lift the hair upward 2 or 3 inches. Hold the section there while you dry underneath with the blow dryer. Unpin the top section and repeat the drying process. Flip your head upside-down once more and spray a light-hold hair spray at the roots of your hair. Remain upside-down for a few seconds to allow the hair spray to dry, and then flip right side up again.
Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair.

Mr. & Mrs. Taurus

May 14, 2013, 6:00 PM

0

By: Ann

 

 

Taurus has a fixed character. As it continues to rise in the sky, the sun heats the Earth. So it is with Taurus that the diurnal values of practicality, reality and materiality overpower the nocturnal values of the subconscious and imagination. Taurus is sociable, warm, likable, wholesome and welcoming. After the sparkle of Aries, which symbolizes the first signs of spring, comes Taurus, and with it the season takes root. Buds open, trees drive into the ground. Likewise, Taureans are rooted in life, and in their own life particularly, their feet firmly anchored to the ground.  Taureans are guided by their feelings but still practical; they’re practicality personified, and they’re aware of that. They’re also patient and persistent constructors who constantly strive towards the goals they set themselves.

 

 

They’re slow and their mind can’t take on several things at once; they order things one after the other. Taureans are sensual beings with overbearing desires. They’re said to be the most affectionate lovers of the Zodiac, and the best at turning their partners on. Love is like music to them. We see a lot of the wild, masculine and virile image of Taurus, but Taureans are really more meaningful cows than raging bulls! Don’t forget that Taurus is supported by two feminine polarities, that of sensual Venus, evoking pleasure and desire, and that of the Moon.

 

 

Taurus’ mythology is rich and comes from Dionysus, the son of Jupiter, an eternal adolescent with a bull’s head who was the god of vegetation, wine, fruits and seasonal renewal, a bringer of joy. Taurus is also a symbol of sacrifice. Mithraic mysteries, which were a great inspiration of Christianity, embody the sacrifice of the bull: Mithra cut the throat of the first living bull and it’s spilt blood led to the birth of plants and animals.

 

 

Mr. Taurus:

He’s generally a small and compact man: there are few tall ones but many with large necks, and their strength is situated in their upper body. You’ll rarely see Mr. Taurus running – he walks calmly with a twinkle in his eye! He likes laughing, joking, having fun and gets on easily with other people. Stubbornness is both his strength and weakness.

 

 

In Life:

When it comes to business, he is undeniably practical and rarely affected by other people’s problems, but whenever his own interests are at stake, he’s patient and persevering. He could become a trader, entrepreneur, management advisor, taxman, banker or trader on the Stock Exchange. Taurus is linked to the mouth, so you might also find him in all food-related trades, anything from agriculture to the hotel or restaurant industry; and he may develop his love for nature in agronomy, horticulture or gardening. Influenced by Venus and artistic talent, Mr. Taurus paints, sculpts, sings, dances and isn’t afraid of expressing his many talents.

 

 

In Love:

Get rid of all your preconceived ideas about Mr. Taurus, he has a surprising amount of imagination. In his youth, he’s a bit of a free spirit when it comes to life’s pleasures, but then one day he’ll decide to settle down, make a home for himself and have children – at least two, more likely three! In love, like in everything else, he’s in no hurry; he’ll make his decision and then set his heart on his chosen one. He rarely messes around and very quickly becomes possessive and jealous. While flattering at first, this can become stifling. If he says, “I love you”, it’s for life.

 

 

Miss Taurus
:

She’s very feminine, always wears make-up and perfume, and takes care of her hair and nails. You’ll rarely see a smudge or a hair out of place on her. Short or tall, brown or blonde, slim or curvy, she goes the whole hog when it comes to attraction and seduction, and few men can resist her when she turns on the charm. Still, she has a more difficult character than Mr. Taurus: she’s vindictive, but she knows how to welcome people. She’ll invite you round for dinner and you’ll end up partying the night away. She likes money and material things: a wardrobe that’s fit to burst, a healthy bank account and a stash of jewelry!

 

 

In Life:

Venus assigns all the artistic talents possible to Miss Taurus: she has a beautiful voice, dances like a pro and would give Laurence Llewellyn Bowen a run for his money in the design stakes! Her career may involve these talents, unless she’s got her own fashion boutique, hairdressers or beauty salon! She knows how to sell her beauty and she could be a model or actress who invests her earnings to make a nice egg-nest for her retirement. She has her head on her shoulders. She likes responsibility and, despite her fragile appearance, she’s one forceful lady.

 

 

In Love:

Miss Taurus has patience, fervor and sometimes resignation (her weak point is that she can’t live without a man in her life). She needs to feel male eyes on her to feel alive! Jealous and possessive, she doesn’t deal with unfaithfulness well at all, but will put up with it for the children, and to avoid going through change. She’s passionate about her home and is willing to do anything to keep it, so divorce is unlikely. She worships friendship.

Celebrity Profile – Lena Dunham

May 13, 2013, 12:30 AM

0

By: Erin

 

 

Today I’d like to focus on the star of HBO’s hit series Girls Lena Dunham. We see a lot of her these days, and I mean a lot of her! Lena can do it all; act, write, direct, produce, you name it. At only 26 years old she’s recently been named one of the top 100 most influential people in the world by TIME magazine. Personally, I love her and I am very excited to write this blog and learn more about the inner mind of miss Dunham. Her chart is very interesting. It’s a bit all over the place, much like her character Hannah in Girls.

 

 

Born: May 13, 1986

New York City, NY

Birth Time: Unknown

 

 

Sun Sign: Taurus:

Sharing the same sun sign as our other featured celebrities we really don’t have to go into too much further detail on this one. With her sun in Taurus she too proves to have a strong work ethic and great career goals.

 

Lena sticks to her guns in true Taurus fashion and can be a bit hard to get her to budge on some of her ideas so the stubbornness of the bull definitely shows in this feisty girl.

 

 

How Others See Her: Ascendant: Capricorn:

In general, people see her as someone with a lot of perseverance and ambition. Lena seems to be wise way beyond her years. She has a very unique way of thinking and general outlook on life, which seem to draw a lot of people towards her.

 

She is very sarcastic and some people might be a bit put off by this if they don’t know her on a personal level. She is very witty but it’s not a generic type of wit, she is very smart and so is her humor and if you don’t get it, you might think she is a bit egocentric.

 

 

Her Inner Personality: Moon: Cancer:

She tends to seek comfort and cling to things she feels most familiar with like her home, family, and friends. She is a bit insecure and this is why she tends to cling onto these things for security. Lena doesn’t deal with change very well and is a creature of habit.

 

Due to her underlying insecurities, if she feels like she’s being treated unfairly or being taken advantage of watch out; she can be a bit manipulative. Most likely she won’t confront the person directly, she will get their attention in a roundabout way and become pretty irrational. Sometimes she might be a bit hard to deal with. On the other hand, Lena for the most part is pretty easy going. If you treat her with respect and kindness you will get it back times 10. She is a very caring person. She just doesn’t have time for people who are going to treat her like crap.

 

 

How She Communicates To the World: Mercury: Taurus:

People like listening to what she has to say. She is very smart, witty, and has a lot of creative and unique ideas and thoughts. Lena is very animated when she speaks and it shows her passion for what she is talking about.

 

She has strong opinions and she voices them well. She is a great thinker and she knows how to get people to really listen to her and get them to understand her though process.

 

 

Her Relationships: Venus: Gemini:

As much as she craves love, she is a bit resistant of relationships simply because she fears getting too comfortable with a person too quickly. She might be a bit overly cautious at times. She has a lot of love to give and wants to be loved but she tends to be a bit detached on an emotional level.

 

As you can see in the other parts of her chart, Lena has a lot of different sides to her and this really reflects in her relationships. She has so many different interests that her tastes change very quickly so she might not exactly know what she wants in a partner. When she is in a relationship, it’s hard to know what to expect from one day to the next.

 

She needs someone who can keep her stimulated on a mental level and a go with the flow kind of guy. She can talk for hours about anything and everything so her partner needs to be able to do the same. Lena likes to tease and be playful with her mate. She likes to have fun and keep things light.

 

 

What Motivates Her: Mars: Capricorn:

What motivates Lena most is her need to stay in control of everything. Perhaps this is why she dabbles in many different areas of the creative world. She is in no way a “control freak” but she definitely likes order or even a little bit of chaotic order. Again, going back to what has been mentioned before, she is very wise and she knows she will go far because she has a lot of common sense and she has realistic goals for herself.

 

Lena puts herself into her work whole-heartedly. She uses it almost as a form of therapy or anger management. By playing these roles she is able to show her real self to the world, good and bad without really feeling like she’s actually exposing herself. All the quirky, traumatizing, hilarious, victories, failures, are all out there and by people showing they can relate to these things that’s really what makes her want to continue doing what she is doing.

He may play a dancing, singing jock on feel-good TV show Glee but this Taurus definitely has some bad boy qualities. With a mix of Aires, Leo, and Gemini it’s no wonder he has a bit of a wild side in real life. Let’s take a look into this multi-talented Canadian’s chart and see what we come up with.

 

Born: May 11, 1982

Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Birth Time: Unknown

 

Sun Sign: Taurus:

Cory is obviously a hard worker. It shows in everything he does. They even joke about it on Glee; the kid can’t dance but he still tries. This pretty much sums up all Taurus’s. The more you tell him he can’t do something, the harder he will try to prove you wrong and show you he can! The stubbornness of the bull shines through sometimes but it’s only because he takes his craft very seriously. He wants to prove to the world that he is capable of anything.

 

How Others See Him: Ascendant: Leo:

People have a lot of respect for him because of his honesty. He is very open about who he is. He doesn’t hide his faults and people find that refreshing. By being so self-assured, Cory is admired by many because no matter what obstacles may stand in his way, he still sets his mind on achievement and lets nothing stand in the way of his success.

 

His Inner Personality: Moon: Capricorn:

He is very kind and warm-hearted. He cares a lot about what others think about him and how they see him. He has a strong desire to feel needed and respected. Cory, for the most part is pretty good at keeping his emotions in check; on the outside, but inside there’s a bit of an emotional battle going on.

 

He tends to get down on himself a lot. He has a lot of mood swings but doesn’t show this side of himself to others. He is very hard on himself; too hard at times. He needs to learn to let go a bit and let up on himself a bit.

 

How He Communicates To The World: Mercury: Gemini:

He is very interesting that’s for sure. He is very witty and a fun way of communicating. He is very engaging and can spark up a conversation with anyone about pretty much anything with no problem.

 

He has a wide variety of interests and his thought process is so quick therefore sometimes when he speaks, he might come off a bit scattered. He gets bored easily and might seem a bit detached sometimes but he does not do it in a cruel manner, it’s simply because he is a quick thinker and needs that constant stimulation.

 

 

His Relationships: Venus: Aries:

Again, he requires a lot of stimulation; for Cory to feel like his relationship is still in the new “honeymoon phase” there needs to be plenty of it. He is all about the chase at first. He wants to prove that he can win you over.

 

He is a kid at heart and has an innocent kind of charm and it reflects in his relationships. He likes the whole young puppy love feeling and the playfulness of that kind of relationship. His partner needs to share his high energy level and be open to exploring fun and exciting new activities.

 

 

What Motivates Him: Mars: Libra:

Cory’s main motivation is to live a balanced life. He wants to be able to keep everything in check; his career, his personal life, etc. He has some issues with procrastination and indecisiveness but it’s because he want’s to make sure he is making decisions that will eventually work in the favor of those around him whom he cares about. Much like his character Finn on Glee, he is kind of the peacemaker and he just wants everyone to be happy.

Essential Oils:

 

Patchouli – Used in countless perfumes and fragrances, patchouli is noted for its long-lasting fragrance and fixative ability. It borders on the exotic and even the name patchouli evokes images of heady aromas, dark, rich colors, candlelight, incense and intrigue. The aroma is very intense; it can be described as earthy, rich, sweet, balsamic, woody and spicy. Patchouli oil is one of the few essential oils that improve with age. Aromatherapy benefits: romantic, soothing, sensual.

 

Rose Otto – Rose oil is one of the oldest and best known of all the essential oils. The fragrance of rose is associated with love. It is warm, intense, immensely rich and rosy. It is used in perfumes to lend beauty and depth. A drop or two in a massage, facial or bath oil is luxurious and soothing. The oil is used in skin creams, powders and lotions. Aromatherapy benefits: romantic, supportive, gently uplifting.

 

Thyme, White – White thyme starts out as red thyme oil that has been further refined and redistilled to remove the constituents that produce the red color. The aroma and action of white thyme oil are a bit milder than that of red thyme. Both are used to scent soaps, colognes and aftershaves. Caution: Thyme oil can be irritating to the skin and should be used cautiously. Aromatherapy benefits: cleansing, purifying, energizing.

 

Ylang-Ylang Extra – Ylang-ylang oil is distilled from the early morning, fresh-picked flowers of the cananga tree. The distillation process is interrupted at various points and the oil accumulates is removed. The first oil to be drawn off is the highest quality and is graded “extra.” Ylang-ylang extra has an intense floral, sweet, jasmine-like, almost narcotic aroma. Aromatherapy benefits: sensual, euphoric.
Tonka – Energetically Tonka Bean Absolute is called the Oil of Initiation. As a gatekeeper, it allows those that are ready to go forward and for those that are not ready, their experience will be unpleasant or they will get a blocked experience.

Herbs:

 

Cardamom: In India Cardamom is traditionally used in curry blends, and in Scandinavian countries it is commonly added to breads; however, most of the world’s Cardamom crop is used in Arabic countries as a flavoring for coffee. A small amount of Cardamom will add a tempting flavor to coffee cake, Danish pastry, specialty breads, and apple pie. Try Cardamom the Arabic way and add a little to your ground coffee before brewing, then sweeten and top with cream. Cardamom comes from India, Guatemala, and Ceylon.

 

Thyme: The leaves are stems of a shrub grown in France and Spain.   Has a strong, distinctive flavor.    A delicate looking herb with a penetrating fragrance, thyme is a wonderful addition to bean, egg and vegetable dishes. Both fresh and dried thyme is available in your local supermarket throughout the year. Fresh thyme should be stored in the refrigerator wrapped in a slightly damp paper towel. Dried thyme should be kept in a tightly sealed glass container in a cool, dark and dry place where it will keep fresh for about six months. Thyme, either in its fresh or dried form, should be added toward the end of the cooking process since heat can easily cause a loss of its delicate flavor. Add thyme to your favorite pasta sauce recipe. Fresh thyme adds a wonderful fragrance to omelets and scrambled eggs. Hearty beans such as kidney beans, pinto beans and black beans taste exceptionally good when seasoned with thyme. When poaching fish, place some sprigs of thyme on top of the fish and in the poaching liquid. Season soups and stocks by adding fresh thyme.

 

Recipe:

Apple Patchwork Cobbler

Apples, cinnamon, cardamom and orange liqueur topped with a patchwork arrangement crust.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Yield: 6 servings

 

Ingregients:

6 large Granny Smith apples (peeled, cored and cubed)
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp. cornstarch
½ cup sugar
1/8 tsp. cardamom
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ cup orange liqueur, or orange juice
Cooking spray
1 package refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts)
1 egg
1 tsp. water

 

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. Combine the prepared apples in a large bowl with the lemon juice, cornstarch, sugar,
cardamom, cinnamon and orange liqueur. Toss well to thoroughly combine the ingredients and
coat the apples evenly.
3. Lightly spray an 8×11 baking dish with cooking spray. Pour the apples into the baking dish and
arrange them in an even layer.
4. Unroll one of the pie crusts. Cut the crust into rectangles approximately 1 ½ inches x 2 inches.
5. Arrange the crust rectangles over the apples in a patchwork fashion leaving several openings to
allow steam to escape. Be sure to press the pieces on the edges to the sides of the baking dish.
If more crust is needed, use the second pie crust as well.
6. Beat the egg with the water. Carefully brush the egg wash over the crust taking care not to
disturb the arrangement.
7. Bake for approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. May be served just warm or at room temperature.
9. Use any leftover pie crust scraps to make cinnamon twists. Just gather up the scraps, knead
them together for a few seconds and roll them out. Melt a tablespoon or two of butter and brush
over the strips. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Cut the dough into strips about 4” long and 1
½” wide. Take each dough strip and give it a twist, then place it on a baking sheet lined with
parchment paper. Dab a little more melted butter on each twist and sprinkle on a little more sugar
and cinnamon. Bake for about 20 minutes along with the cobbler or until the twists are golden
brown. Great with a cup of coffee!
