I would be careful about your tip with the tick. It's not recommended to use oil to get rid of a tick because when it drowns it can, like, put all the bacterias or whatevs in your blood stream. And I'm not 100% sure this wouldn't happen in this case too. So you could actually put your health in more danger than when you remove it with tweezers.

Thank you so much for this response <3  I actually did not recommend using oil, just water. <3 

Yeah I know. My point is that it could have the same effect.

Okay, i understand now.

for everyone: I have removed hundreds dozens of ticks off of my body this way (the water cap) my whole life, and I promise I wouldn’t recommend something I thought was in any way unsafe.  Always do your own research, and do what feels right for you. <3

In general I want to clarify that unfortunately once you have been bitten by a tick, you have been exposed to the tick’s bacteria (whether the tick has lyme or not).  Always pay close attention to your body and wellness after any tick bite.  The risk with tweezers is the the tick’s head will remain attached, furthering one’s bacterial risk.

tick removal

the best way to remove a tick is NOT to simply yank it off.  pour some water into a small water bottle or other cap:

Hold the cap of water completely over the tick, effectively drowning it.

It WILL let go. <3

The light of consciousness is swallowed by the dark, and the shadow wants to be revealed. The Libran shadow is co-dependence – where are you being “nice” at the expense of being authentic? Where are you sacrificing your desires and vitality to “keep the peace”? Where are you holding back your creativity and individuality because you’re afraid people won’t like you? Where do you wear a mask of caretaking to hide your true self?&#8221; - Virgo Magic

Eclipse Season serves as a portal into a new reality, which is all well and good, but when you’re IN the portal (like, now), it can be mighty uncomfortable and anxiety-producing. We’re in that awkward in-between stage, the old reality crumbling away while the new reality, the new self, doesn’t even know WTF it is, it’s not yet time to know.

Indoor Tropical Fruit for Temperate Gardeners

Here are some things I’m growing indoors right now:

  1. Banana
  2. Pineapple (can be grown from the top of store-bought fruit)
  3. Mango (can be grown from the pit of store-bought fruit)
  4. Coffee
  5. Avocado (can be grown from the pit of store-bought fruit)
  6. Pomegranate (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit
  7. Passionfruit (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  8. Kiwifruit (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  9. Guava (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  10. Cherimoya (can be grown from the pits of store-bought fruit)
  11. Kumquat (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  12. Blood Orange (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  13. Mandarin Orange (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  14. Clementine (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  15. Lemon (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  16. Grapefruit (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)

Not pictured:

Date palms(can be grown from the pits of store-bought fruit)
Jujube:
 (can be grown from the pits of store-bought fruit)

I would like to try:

Papaya, Lime, Citron, Dragonfruit, and Starfruit.

Many of these, like the avocado, may never actually bear fruit indoors: but, there is a chance that smaller trees—like the lemon, orange, kumquat, guava, and coffee—could (provided they have enough light). I dream of the day when I could even think of building a heated greenhouse for these, but for now, a sunny window will have to suffice!

Either way, sprouting the waste from your groceries is a fine way to get free houseplants!

Steve Halpern - Interstellar Light

I really enjoy Steve Halpern’s music.  My good friend introduced me. Pretty much every day during our last semester at college I would go to her house, and we would play Music for Healing, and my Christmas fireplace dvd on mute.  Then she made some coffee, maybe I added some mini marshmellows, and we would just study for like 6 or 12 hours.  hxc fireplace dvd scholars. 

Enjoy <3
