THE ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE JANUARY 2021 NEWSLETTER
CHAT FROM VcToria
I hope you all enjoyed the holidays and have entered into 2021 with a fabulous mindset. 😊 I have a NEW COLUMN that replaces the restaurant reviews. See below for the Monthly Book Review. Do you have a book you want me to review? OR just post about?
AND :) Under My Opinion column, I have posted a business idea for anyone who is in the TRAVEL business or wants to be.
As I mentioned last month nothing has changed in my business so if you wish to book an in-person or any type of phone or Skype read and see what 2021 will bring you may book now.
Let’s get to the heart of my Chat as this is the most read Newsletter I find. For my new subscribers: I follow the seasons of Numerology as nature follows her seasons. Within nature, you find the germination in Spring, growth in Summer, Harvest in Fall, and resting in Winter. We have the same options in life to plant, germinate, grow, succeed and MORE 😊 you only have to follow your own seasons of which we have nine. Based on your birth data you may find this on my website written in full. Trust me they work: Jump into your own seasons and enjoy life as it comes to you and not you trying to find it.
From January 1st, 2020 to today December 31st at midnight I have been in my Personal Two Year. This is the year you have to allow whatever you wrote in the Personal Year One (2019) journal to germinate. There is no way you can rush this year. It is about recognizing what is growing and as 2021 arrives my Personal Three Year I get to start to create with the seedlings that now are stronger. Our lives vibe with the season just like nature does. When you plant life at the CORRECT time you get rewards. Trust me I follow this to a tee and everything I touch gives me the outcome I want as long as I recognize that it seeded and grew 😊
Man, oh man if there was a year to be in the Personal Two Year then thank goodness it was 2020. I just settled in and waited. What has grown? Funnily enough, as I look at my ‘seeding’ of the beginning of the nine-year cycle so much has already taken place. My first seeding was to republish one of Dad's books and see the results. Well, they were off the charts in sales. So I republished the other four and created one with all 5 combined. ALL are selling well. I also created the Amulet Kits, Completed Pyramids, Angel Cards, and intend to see if this takes me to more creativity this year.
Next, I seeded a new van. That came early this year LOL. I had seeded it for 2022 but the Universe obviously said ‘no, you will get it now’. So, I have a 2020 van now.
I created a new cover for my memoir ‘The Now and Forever’ as I had seeded that. All done 😊 I created Angel cards to go with the last book I wrote, The Encyclopedia of Fifty Year Old Magic. Got the new website up and running. Got a new printer. Got a new computer.
Now for this year (2020), I did not meet my soulmate. The top of my list is to be vegan and in my age category that is hard to find. Plus, I am EXTREMELY independent and since this year has not had any shows at all for me to work, travel to, etc. it has been a massive ‘stay at home’ and enjoy your palace. 😊
One of my seedings was ‘to have much more time at home’ LOL That I truly received this year and if things stay as they are, I may have another fine year enjoying my home. I have made it truly comfortable so that I do not miss going out. When I am offered ‘time’ I use it wisely and got all the things done that I wrote about above plus more 😊
That in a nutshell is what has already grown and been received from my journaling of the beginning of my Nine Year Seasons. Trust me it works. I promise. Use the link above to find yours and embrace the offerings of life.
Now how was my December? It passed EXTREMELY slowly for me and still is as of the 29th as I write Chat. The last 11 months flew by and I have no answer as to why December crawled in my mind as time passed.
At the beginning of the month, I had more online orders for Astrology charts than in-person reads. PLUS, lol Skype and phone reads seemed to be fine all in the first week of December. On the 9th I went out for the ‘ last supper’ as I called it with my son. Right as I had booked at Watari the government announced all indoor dining would halt soon after that. Glad I booked and glad I enjoyed the dinner.
I did a Christmas Eve vegan dinner with my friend Jackie. I prepared vegan turkey, ham, lemon roasted potatoes, Brussel sprouts, mashed carrots, and gravy. For dessert, I made crème caramel and Jackie brought vegan wine to the supper and a lovely chocolate Christmas cake. PLUS, she gifted me with homemade brie vegan cheese. A huge wheel of it. Luckily, I had made onion bread so I froze half and ate the other half with my onion bread. Oh, me oh my it was delicious. She also brought me a box of vegan dark chocolates that I am eating slowly as the weight needs to come off LOL. Not that I gained any, just that I had always planned to lose 20 lbs and never primed my mind to create this.
Grandson came over just before Xmas for a visit and again with my son for another visit on Christmas day. Son gave me a $150 amazon gift card and that is being put towards my telescope OR binoculars that I am planning to buy for watching the sky change 😊
Then finally some in-person reads and we moved onwards with time. 😊 Then as per usual EVERY year it slows and this year from the 20th to now, I have only had one read. So, the year ends with this I assume unless someone calls. I now move into 2021 waiting for my FIRST read of the year. 😊 I always wonder who it will be. Will it be you?
LASTLY!! My dishwasher bit the dust. I must have bought a lemon eight years ago. It was Kitchen Aids' new model and I paid $2200 for it. Yup, you think paying more gets you more LOL. NOT!! After two years and just as the warranty expired it started to break down. First the heater, then the shelving, then the plastic thingy in the back. Each time my neighbor fixed it, other than the heater, and this month the top shelf bearings and sliding thingy fell off. I would have to put another $200 into just that part. NO NO NO I said. I went online on Boxing day, purchased a Bosch, got free delivery and free removal for the old one PLUS $400 off the normal price of $1300. It was delivered yesterday 😊 yup GREAT service from the Brick and my neighbor hooked it up for me. Using my Flexit card I have interest free for 3 months and plan to have it fully paid by then 😊
Just an update: ALL of my business is the same. In-person reads are available, Skype, phone and online charts, etc. See the website for the prices of the packages and if you wish to book a phone or Skype you can under the webstore. In-person I appreciate a phone call NOT text to book, please.
And that everyone ended my 2020 year. As I move into 2021, I take note that my season is referred to as The Personal Three Year which donates time to me to be ‘creative’ PLUS unexpected travel 😊 Well the travel I already know about if Christmas 2021 is back to normalcy in Quebec. I am heading to Montreal to see my best friend and we will head to the ski hills no doubt. But it is a long way off so I will plan it as it arrives time-wise.
I intend to be as creative as the Universe offers me to be. BUT!! I am waiting till April to really start to create anything of substance. Why? If the shows come back as in The Fringe, BVJ, [Big Valley Jamboree], K-Days, etc. I will be focusing on them more so.
But for January, February and March I will update my Face Book store, LinkedIn, Bark, and do a whole lot of setting up any stuff on the internet that would enhance my business. Then by April, I will know if I am going to set up any online courses. I would rather do shows as I enjoy traveling and people but I will follow the path of least resistance 😊
Since I have been home for over 365 days with no leaving the home overnight China, my gorgeous 17-year old Siamese cat will now have to travel with me if 2021 opens up the shows. Why? I LOVE her dearly and she now stays by my side contently. All her mates have passed over so I cannot see myself leaving her alone as she is elderly and would cry while I was gone. If the shows take off again then I will see how well she travels and if she is OK staying in the hotel room while I go to the shows to work 😊 I will keep you all posted.
Food? As I mentioned in the last few months, I stocked up with dried beans, coffee, garbage bags, toilet paper, rice, and a ton of other vegan like staples. I think I have enough for two years [YUP TWO YEARS] here LOL. I really overbought on the dried staple stuff. Hunkering down for the next three months was my decisive action and therefore I prepared for it. I have a gym in my basement that I hope my mind will override my laziness and allow me to get back to working out. I have a massage chair, reflexology machine, Nuga Best bed, Nuga Best mat, and lastly, I bought the sauna that I mentioned last month. I intend to do a daily workout, daily sauna, daily cooking, and of course my daily meditation. I am using the creativity of the year to create a healthier body. 😊
So, as you welcome in 2021 do make your Re’soul’utions as I like to call them. Make them wisely and allow yourself to enjoy creating. Use the link to figure out your Personal Season and settle in for the ride. Only you can make your life positive. No one else will as they cannot feel ALL that you do. What many show to the world on the outside does not jive at all with their own insides. Meaning how they truly feel and think. 😊 Adjust life to your liking. Make that one of your Re’soul’utions’. Meditation will do that for you if you allow that dedication to be daily. Link in case you missed it>Your Personal Years In Numerology
I leave you now till next month and hope that the first days of 2021 will bring you nothing but peace, happiness, and plans. 😊
China: My last baby. Very healthy and on October 7th, 2020 she turned 17 years of age. She loves being the only cat.
Now the food: I stocked up this month as my plan is to stay home till April and only go out to the post office once a week if orders need me to mail them there. 😊 I am also using Instacart for grocery delivery as having a personal shopper is beyond enjoyable LOL. I seem to only have to order once a month 😊
Kitty litter came to $19.94. A bag of treats came to $2.72. Raw meat came to $63.68 and should last me 48 days as she gets ½ pack every night. Tinned food came to $84.97 and should last me 46 days but I also had about 6 tins left from last month. It looks like I will not have to shop for cat food until early February 😊
The Total monthly cost was $171.31
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 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.
MY OPINION THIS MONTH
Last month I posted the government list of what someone said had happened in parliament. I hope you all printed it out? I did receive one foolish e-mail saying it was not true because it had been fact-checked. I have to say that of course it would not be openly told to you that it was ‘true’. When you see a fact-checked post you need to ask ‘who fact-checked it’? Not just take it at face value. If a meat farmer fact checks a vegan health comment, they will not agree LOL. Get it?
BUT!! Is it not funny that ALL the actions and dates are lining up with the last month's My Opinion post? I will await April and see if the Universal basic Income is created. Also, if this new strain that so mysteriously arrived right at the predicted date from the paper is named Covid-21. If you are confused by this part of my post go to last month's My Opinion and print it out.
NOW are you in the TRAVEL BUSINESS and have tech knowledge or anyone you would wish to partner up with tech knowledge? I have no desire to create this idea but I would be a customer for life. If someone did open this type of business you certainly would become quite wealthy.
There is no such thing right now as a VIRTUAL TRAVEL AGENT: VR has become extremely ‘real’ as one looks through the apparatus that contains this experience. So, find a person who can video while they travel OR buy this off of travel TV shows that have already been filmed for TV. Create a Virtual Reality experience of tourist destinations of ALL countries. IE: Italy and the churches. The Pyramids in Egypt etc. etc. Create it so that the experience is so mind-boggling that it appears real.
Open your Virtual Reality Travel Agency online and have people either rent or buy the experiences. Sell the VR equipment and make sure it is top of the line with the tech available today.
Make a Go Fund if you seriously think you can do this and need to raise funds.
My idea is free and I do hope someone looks at this and says “this will be the way of travel for many PLUS for those who cannot travel PLUS for those who wish to know what It does look like before they go there”.

JANUARY 2021 ASTROLOGY PLANETARY INFORMATION
ELEVENTH HOUSE OF YOUR NATAL CHART
The house of friendship, people, colleagues, and basically socializing.
A planet that gives a lot of weight to any house in the natal chart is Saturn. Your ‘what lessons do I need to learn’ here? With Saturn in the 11th house, you will find yourself tired of people. You will wish to spend time alone. Do so 😊
If your 11th house has no natal planets then you will find that you think differently at times about making new friends, going out, partying, etc. Why is this? Because as the transits [the planets move around] hit your houses, determining what planets rest for awhile will determine the energy being created around this area of life. Take a peek at your natal chart and see what your 11th house offers you.
So, remember that as the planets move so we have the offerings of choice. As they move through the 11th house your social area will be the offering. 😊
I have Chiron in my natal 11th house so my early childhood would have a lot of whom I grow into in this life and what I need to fix that affected me from childhood. I would also find myself attracting those with like-minded thoughts and would not be comfortable with those who do not think like me. [So true 😊]
If you cannot read your chart I do offer astrology reads.
Next Month: 12th 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 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.
Cherry or any Fruit Puff Pastry Roll
I am not sure if I have posted this recipe before but know it is SIMPLE to do. The puff pastry is vegan interestingly enough. Any frozen fruit will do.
1 pack of puff pastry
1 pack of any type of frozen fruit. I used cherries in this one as I had a frozen bag of them in the freezer. I have also used mango prior to this.
Roll out the dough. It should offer two squares and each will be a roll. Once rolled out into a square add a thick line of frozen fruit and top with sugar. I use raw sugar. Roll it up carefully and sprinkle the top with sugar. You can also take a brush and brush some plant-based milk on top and then sprinkle the sugar. Do the same to the next square of puff pastry.
Transfer onto parchment paper and transfer then into a flat baking tin. Or put the parchment paper on the tin and transfer the rolls. Cook at 400 degrees for one hour and ¼. Check at the one-hour mark and if the top of the pastry is brown enough just cover with aluminum foil for the last 15 minutes.
Cool and if you like you can add coconut cream on top. It is up to you. I like a little pea milk on top as pea milk is VERY creamy. Particularly the kind I buy on Amazon.
Next Month: I will be creating two recipes. Using my dried lentils for a YUMMY thicker type soup and for dessert a crème caramel.
"NEW" MONTHLY BOOK REVIEW
Then Now and Forever by VcToria Gray-Cobb
As I said last month the restaurant review would be the last one as I am now staying home and cooking rather than spending money on food that I enjoy making. I was a wee bit perplexed as to what I would replace the column with. I even thought of just not adding anything. BUT!! As I meditated this idea came to the forefront of my mind. So, I am starting a book review column.
NOW do you have a book that you have written? Would you like me to review it in the column? If you would like to send me the book, I would gladly read it and give my HONEST opinion here. My newsletter goes out to quite a few people PLUS is hosted on my website for 12 months PLUS is linked to FB, IG, etc.
I am NOT charging you anything. Now if I do not receive any books and you still wish to send me a review written by yourself of a book you think many would like please do so and I will post it here.
So, to start I will begin with my own book. It is a memoir and EVERY word is true. Title: Then Now and Forever by VcToria Gray-Cobb.Available on my web store OR Amazon.
An intriguing book if I do say so myself 😊 I met and fell in love with a bank robber at the age of 21. This man was truly my soul mate. He understood me, he valued me, he loved me and we settled into life together after two days of knowing each other. I trusted him with my life and he certainly trusted me with his. I never let him down and he never let me down. We spent so much time together day in and day out and never tired of each other. We talked and talked about everything. We enjoyed ourselves as one person whose souls had met and entwined.
Sadly, it was not to be a lifetime together. Crime was what he knew. Time was what he got for this knowledge.
This book is a memoir of my earlier years where emotions were my actions. My heart led my life not my intelligence. As he lived with prison walls so I had to accept that he was there for a LONG time. After many years I went my own way but never found a true replacement. One relationship came close but baggage in this area created emotional instability and I walked away.
30 years later I tracked him down again only to find that he was still behind walls. We reconnected and ????? I leave you to either buy the book or not 😊
I can assure you it will be a page-turner but ALL of it is true. Word for word as I grew to be me.
I look forward to someone sending me a review OR better still their own book so next month we can get this column moving for others. If I receive more than one book/review it will be put in order of arrival and one per month will be in each newsletter. For my address, please e-mail me with what you intend to send me. 😊
If I receive none LOL then each month, I will review my own books. I have seven I can review. Now six. 😊
