Well we moved into Fall this month and with that, the leaves change color, the patios close, the gardens are slowly cleared and harvests brought in. PLUS, 😊 the evenings are cooler and a few nights I turned on my fireplace, settled under the covers on the couch with China my loving cat, and watched my latest TV channel to be added. That would be Netflix 😊 Why did I add this channel? Seems two of my favorite shows no longer are on any other channels. That would be Lucifer that I am now all caught up on to series 5 and Animal Kingdom that I still have to watch the last episodes. Animal Kingdom is not about animals, it is about crime 😊
The time has sped by. I mentioned last month that I always thought my summers went very quickly because I did the shows back to back and was either traveling, setting up, tearing down booths, and making my living. Well, I have discovered that it was not the business of the shows as this summer my time has passed quicker than I ever could imagine. It makes me wonder if time has just sped up in its own energy.
I am not one to be idle in a sense. What do I mean? Well, I run my business, my home and as I am in a Personal Year Two in Numerology [my 2 season, as I like to call it] I follow the energy of the sequence of my ‘you have been offered this as energy in this season’. The Two Season tells me to read what I seeded in my One Season last year and allow myself to recognize what is germinating. To make it clear the energy says ‘let it come to you, you cannot push things. WELL 😊 That made it a heck of a lot easier to chill at home and find projects that jived with my beliefs and life choices.
My month started out slowly with a couple of phone/skype reads and then an AWESOME house party that I was the surprise psychic for the woman who was getting married. Ironically, she had talked about me a lot as I had done two other house parties for her so the person who arranged her bachelorette party invited me to do one part of the entertainment. I loved doing this party.
Also, keep in mind that the house parties are ideal to arrange as you get the cheaper prices per person that I ONLY do at my shows.
A few days off that gave me a lot of time to work in the garden, groom and pet my wonderful China who turns 17 this month [on the 7th] and cook, read my new books, watch TV and in general enjoy my days that allow me to choose what I wish to do.
I did some take out mid-month from a vegan restaurant on the south side that still is only offering that service, then I went with my neighbor to Famoso Pizza as I was doing the vegan review on this [see below in the column]. Looks like I went out four times this month to eat 😊 One of them was with my new friend Deb [not my friend who I have known for years but I now have another Debbie as a friend through quite a coincidence] Today I as finish up ‘Chat’ she is coming over for lunch at my home. I have a vegan sort of shepherd’s pie and raw pea soup ready to serve. Looks like the weather will allow us a patio mid-afternoon lunch 😊.
Every year I put some kind of repairs or upgrades on my home. I have lived here for 7 summers. [I moved here in the winter of 2014] In this time I have added a cat cage down the side of the house, a new roof, a new garage door, netting over my gutters so I do not have leaves collect in them, new carpeting on two of the four floors, remote control blinds in the front room, new fridge, new shower door, removed large trees that were damaging my foundation and smaller little repairs like a new front door lock that works with a code rather than keys etc. etc. This summer my big project was the front lawn fence that I installed PLUS a little doorway at the beginning of my path with lattice and the gutter pipes over it so that ice will not form on my path.
Good contractors are VERY hard to find. I had googled as we all do 😊 and called Knottwood Construction who I will tell you NEVER use as he will completely waste your time. He came over seemed to know his stuff and gave me a quote. I accepted and that was that. He then asked me to get ONE CALL to come and map out the places where wires were under the ground. This I did and informed him 5 days later it was done. You then have 30 days to complete whatever work you need to be done. He stalled the work from the date he said it would begin, then stalled again, then stopped answering phone calls and texts. I called another company and they informed me that they only installed vinyl as there was a wood shortage. It took the contractor over 10 days to return my actual call. LOL.
BUT I posted on Facebook and someone I knew recommended a guy named Brandon. What GREAT service I got. If you need fence work done, he is the guy.
Now Brandon and Wayne arrived and I can only say, WOW!! I got a quote and off they went to buy WOOD that they had no issues buying LOL. They worked hard, cut, measured followed the real property report, showed me the lines that the fence would be built on and all in all were the best contractors I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I re-hired them to build my doorway with the lattice as it needs two posts to be cemented into the ground. Again, the BEST service EVER. Call or PM me, or email me if you need their numbers.
What else? I went down to The Blue-Plate Diner for my next month vegan restaurant review with my neighbor. I will post the full story next month but what a production to get into that place. She will not accept the ‘exemption card’. We are asked to report all businesses who do not accept it to 311 in case you are unaware. I took care of that report.
She demands you hand sanitize and refuses anyone who will not wear a mask. I do not think this place will be open much longer. The location has moved from 104 Ave where it was always packed and bustling to an empty and colder in atmosphere place. Stony Plain Road is known not to survive for many restaurants. The turnover has been huge over the years. But, each to their own. However, I wish businesses would understand we have bylaws and under those bylaws, as many are following, you too need to follow them or your loss of customers will be greater than your income.
The rest of the month flew by with many more reads, a Ritual created and done for a client and some more in-person reads.
I had applied for a show here in Edmonton but due to my having to have clients in my booth plus my refusal to wear a mask I was declined. BUT!! As I was chatting to my out-of-town Xmas show producer, I mentioned this and she dug it up online whist talking to me and proclaimed ‘this is last year advertising’. She cannot have a bouncy house; she cannot have a lot of what is advertised here and she will be surprised when AHS tells her what is not allowed. “ As I looked at the website, later on, my conversation with the show producer was 100% correct. She is advertising only 2019 and none of the vendors are up as I know a couple who are going in. I may have the Universe taking care of me here and we will see what happens. One of my good friends is a vendor that has been accepted so I will have first-hand information on this show.
So far, I have 100% clarification that I am doing GP Xmas show and am awaiting the rules from Lloyd that will be sent to us and if it is too difficult to maintain the distance then I have been told that I am guaranteed my spot for next year without a payment being taken.
And so, I simply follow the energy of the year and use the time to enjoy my home and all that I create within my life.
Here’s hoping my Chat was not too boring LOL.
Make sure you meditate daily, use the energy of life to please yourself.
MY OPINION THIS MONTH
There is only one way to stop this stupidity from happening and that is to stop lining up for tests. I am appalled at the brainless public that keeps this going. Wear a mask? Then why do the numbers keep going up? Why are you not questioning what the actual test is looking for? If people DO NOT have symptoms and test positive can you not think about this? Maybe they are just low on Vitamin D?
Why did the person go to get a test anyway? when was the last time you booked an appointment with your doctor when you were feeling well? Now, what is it they found to create a 'positive'? Why are you surprised that you cannot answer this? It appears no one can. You are just being brainwashed into fear-mongering energy that at this time you are told to go home and stay away from anybody for two weeks. YET!! lol, you just lined up for hours with people all around you.
I cannot comprehend why you need to know if you have had this flu-like illness? I would never line up to create this fear-mongering to keep going.
All it would take is for everyone to STOP going for a test. There would be no numbers and no more media fear-mongering and no more power-hungry so-called top doctors enjoying the limelight. If you feel really, really, really feel unwell then call an ambulance.
If you are one of the people lining up for tests than stop complaining and thank you for helping to ruin the economy when this is a two-week bed rest CURE. For those who are dying they all had underlying health conditions and allowed their bodies to weaken.
Even the scientists who are looking for a vaccine are creating an ‘immune system’ strengthener. EAT properly, work out, and keep your weight to ‘normal’.
I have worked on my health all my life and should not be forced to keep others safe who chosen to eat crap, are overweight, and lazy. Put effort into the ONE and ONLY body you have been gifted with to enjoy your journey here. Stop putting money before your health. Stop putting gluttony before your body. Think before you eat. ‘A second on the lips is a lifetime on your hips’ so the saying goes.
If you are fed up and want the world to return to your ‘normal’ life that ended in March 2020 then stand together and stop ‘testing’. There is no need for protests and whining, just stay home if you are unwell and stop being hypnotized into believing whatever it is you are choosing to believe that makes no sense if you stop and THINK.
Positive Thoughts to You All Always, VcToria.
THIS IS MY OPINION AND YOU CAN CHOOSE TO AGREE OR DISAGREE
China: My last baby. Very healthy and on October 7th she will turn 17 years of age. She loves being the only cat.
Now the food: Only tinned food was needed this month at $48.40. Dry food was not needed. Raw food was not needed. Kitty litter was needed and came to $33.60 and treats came to $11.94.
The total monthly cost was $93.94 I love my EXTRA cheap months :)
If you are thinking of getting a pet please know that from the cute stage, they grow with a personality to the adult stage. Animals feel with unconditional love from their souls. They get attached and used to their homes. If you cannot give up 12-18 years and maybe longer, do NOT get a pet. It is not a companion till you find a mate, have a child, decide to move to an apartment that will not allow pets, it is a companion for life. They also need dental care, checkups, and GOOD food. Not this cheap, no nutrient food that I see so many people buy. Your pets will suffer later just as you would if all you ate was junk.
Look at rescue places for loving animals. These pets will not only be grateful, it's almost like they know you saved them and love and adore you for it. Think before you add to your life. Can you give this type of commitment? If the answer is yes then enjoy looking for your new companion. Think older if you can, for some reason older pets are harder to re-home and they are much sadder as they wait not knowing what it was they did to be removed from their homes.

OCTOBER 2020 ASTROLOGY PLANETARY INFORMATION
EIGHTH HOUSE OF YOUR NATAL CHART
I have removed the link to the planets and void of course. If you wish to know the daily movements I post them on FaceBook under my business name The Alternative Universe.
There are 12 houses in the 360-degree circle of your birth chart.
The seventh house is all about relationships. Here, when you look at the natal positions of the planets [where they sat at birth] you will have a good idea of what to expect from this area of your life. Do you have issues with all relationships? Do you crave another person? There are so many answers that will give you peace of mind from this area.
Now, as the planets move through the seventh house [transits] you have the opportunity to explore these areas and fix the issues if it is your own doing that prevents the balance of two people.
I would say this house is one of the most pressing to explore. First, you have to love yourself and many do not. Until you allow this to be the first and foremost emotion you cannot love another as equal. This is where you will find out if you ‘need’ another person or ‘enjoy’ the other person. Need is NOT growth but adding ‘joy’ to yourself is. You decide.
Your birth chart shows this area and all that you can learn from it or ‘need’ to learn from it.
If you cannot read your chart I do offer astrology reads.
Next Month: 9th House.

VcToria's AWESOME Vegan Kitchen
In case you are new to my Newsletter I just wish to say this "The first thing you eat in the morning feeds the brain". Remember this as you will find a HUGE difference if you start the day with a green juice. I have done this for decades along with 3-4 teaspoons of hemp seed. I am never sick. Into a Vitamix: 2 green chopped apples, 4-5 stalks of celery, 1 cucumber, 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, 6-8 cups water. Blend on high for 2 minutes or until all veggies are juiced. ENJOY. PS: Keep the skins, seeds and everything EXCEPT the lemon skins on the veggies and place in Vitamix.
Cauliflower & Cheese Sauce
I know I promised the mushroom, veggies, and cheese puff pastry for this month's recipe but I had a craving for the somewhat British meal that I grew up on. This can also be served with broccoli or any other vegetable that you enjoy having a wonderful tasty cheese sauce poured over them.
3 tablespoons of flour. I use the flour that is created just for gravies and such by Robin Hood [Easy Blend Flour]
1-3 tablespoons of vegan butter. [I use Melt and buy it at Safeway]
2 cups of any plant milk. I use pea milk. It is creamy and yummy.
1-2 cups of vegan cheese. I use Daiya but feel free to use any brand you like as long as it melts.
1 ¼ teaspoon of salt
Add the butter to a pot at medium heat. Once melted add the flour and gradually add the milk stirring constantly. Add the cheese and salt and mix. Stir every 30 seconds or so till it starts to thicken. Give it a taste. If you like the taste just let it cook for about 5 minutes stirring every so often. if it needs more cheese or salt add now.
While you are preparing your cheese sauce cook the veggies. I like cauliflower best. Pour the sauce over the veggies. Serve hot.
Next Month: Mushroom, veggie, and cheese puff pastry dish.
THE VEGAN RESTAURANT MONTHLY REVIEW
Famosa Pizza 141223 23 Ave Edmonton, Alberta
These reviews are for Edmonton, Alberta Canada, and surrounding areas.
As I said last month, now I would be reviewing restaurants that offer vegan options so this month I chose Famosa Pizza, and off I went with my VERY enthusiastic neighbor who just LOVES getting out eating twice a month. Once we go for pleasure and once for the review.
Sadly the day we had originally chosen my neighbor had to change her schedule at work and we switched to another day. Had we gone on the original day we would have had a patio dinner as it was 30C. The day we switched to was windy and overcast so we sat inside at a lovely booth.
I immediately ordered a margarita and my neighbor had a coffee. As we researched the menu I decided to have my standard double pineapple, tomato sauce, mushroom and daiya cheese. All of the vegan pizzas are under their 'Plant-Based' menu. Although you can create your own if you choose to.
My neighbor ordered the plant-based primavera. I have to say I will be ordering this one next time. Even though it comes with black olives, that I thought I did not like, they make a nice salty addition to the veggies.
As per usual they arrived quickly, hot and fresh as the Famosa pizzas are cooked in an authentic bell-shaped Italian oven for 90 seconds. They are delicious.
Sadly they have no vegan desserts but we grabbed a bottle of vegan wine [La Spinetta D' Asti] on the way home. Since it was warm I opted to keep it in the fridge till the following day and then she came over for vegan homemade sushi the following day. Yes, we drank the whole bottle. It gives about 2 glasses per person. [If you are 2 people]
I highly recommend Famosa for in house dining as I have not had hot pizza any time I have had it delivered. I find Skip the Dishes very slow and also the Famosa in the west end has now closed. Another closing due to this stupidity. I use Panago for delivery. Comes quickly and steaming hot. They too offer a great vegan pizza.
Next Month: Next month I will be covering The Blue Plate Diner on 104th street.
