10 Tips for your Twenties
1. Wear Sunsreen Wear sunscreen. Always. ALWAYS. Just do it. Wear sunscreen. You don’t have to go out of your way to be tan. It does feel great to absorb that vitamin D, but…wear sunscreen. Protect your skin. Sun exposure is known to cause visible signs of aging and skin cancer. I got a bunch of new freckles and random new moles. This totally might have happened either way, but just in case it’s from the sun….wear sunscreen. Make sure to get your face and the backs of your hands.
"Sweatpants Are All That Fit Me Right Now"
On the cusp of 30, stepping onto the scale after coming home from a three-month stint in New York City, I realize with a mixture of shock and horror: I’ve never weighed this much before. Even my loosest pajama pants, that I had retired to a drawer for years because they didn’t stay up around my hips, now fit snugly around my belly.
GUESSING MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT S11 COUPLES ZODIAC SIGNS
THE COUPLES: Amelia & Bennett MY GUESS: Sagittarius & Aquarius Ok I think that Amelia, based on her demeanor on the show, is a sagittarius. She is warm, agreeable, affectionate, and caring, wordly, a free spirit, and a traveler. While Bennett also has many of these qualities, he seems a bit more fixed in his location and attached to his life as he knows it. Even though Bennett plays it cool much of the time, he is obviously quite quirky and very social, and for this reason I think he's an Aquarius.
Critical Analysis: Thoroughbreds, Film
**SPOILERS** If you have not seen the film Thoroughbreds please be aware that the following review contains spoilers. When I was in high school I discovered cult classics. Every weekend my friends and I would watch another: The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Heathers, Donnie Darko, A Clockwork Orange, Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, Reservoir Dogs. We loved the movies that were so weird they were known for it. But always, aside from their crazy characters, bizarre scenarios, and at times overt violence, these movies deliver powerful observations on the sheer oddity that is society and human nature.
December 21 2020 Saturn Jupiter Conjunction
With this historic grand conjunction taking place at 0 degrees Aquarius, this incoming energy will impact our entire planet in ways that we can not yet predict, understand, or maybe even imagine. Aquarian energy is completely new, different, and unexpected. Humanitarian, quirky, progressive, future-oriented, of-the-people, and unique.
✨October Energy Update ✨
There's a lot going on this month, if you can't already feel the energy! First off, we have tonight's Full Moon and Harvest Moon. Chiron conjunct Mars in Aries has been bringing attention to wounds to our core personal beliefs or formation of self. In direct opposition with the moon tonight, it's a great time to identify these wounds and do some meditative visioning around accepting, integrating, healing, and releasing, especially with the use of fire or smoke. You might also consider reframing these wounds to understand the gifts and lessons that they taught you. Bring forward the lessons, and leave the pain behind. Read my full moon in aries article for more on tonight's moon.
Firey Full Moon In Aries on October 1
October opens with a Full Moon in Aries opposite the Libra Sun on the first of the month, setting the tone for the next few weeks. Aries energy values "me" while Libra favors "we." While the collective energies might be encouraging us to look for partnership, connection, pleasure, and ease (hello cuffing season), the full moon conjunct Chiron in Aries may highlight wounds to our psyche that aren't quite healed, or old wounds that are reopened by life circumstances, posing a difficult challenge to our ability to connect intimately with others.
Roasted Broccoli & Sweet Potatoes over Quinoa and Black Beans
Cooking is a form of self-care and grounding. After beginning my cycle this morning I decided I might as well replenish my body's iron supplies, so I made iron and magnesium the inspiration for this meal. When women bleed we lose iron, and magnesium can help improve mood and alleviate menstrual cramps, so my desire for this dinner was to help with both of the above.
