1. The Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 10th brings a highly event-oriented phase, since the Sun and Moon are making close aspects to Jupiter, Chiron, Saturn, and Uranus. This is no time to stand idly by; get involved with your favorite social cause, and look for creative solutions to longstanding problems. Mars in action-oriented Aries all month favors starting new projects, especially during the ten days leading up to this Full Moon.
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Cats are difficult to force into anything - the more we push the more they resist. This holds true when introducing a cat to a new house. Don't push, pull - entice, reward, and walk away so things end on a good note. A new pet can take up to 3 months to be acclimated to the new house.

I'm 3 months pregnant and my doctor is encouraging me to get the flu shot. Is this safe for the baby?
Although we have all suffered from influenza (flu) one time or another, many people don't realize that the flu can be a severe illness...
Editor's Note: Dr. Feder does a good job of making you think in this article about the CDC recommendation of a flu shot during pregnancy. Flu shots contain mercury, yet they tell you to stay away from mercury ladened fish while pregnant. Mercury is a known neurotoxin that crosses the blood brain barrier (meaning it gets in the brain).

The context was Hannity defending prompts from a caller about whether Mitt Romney, being as wealthy as he is, is actually relatable to the masses of financially struggling Americans...
Editor's Note from Michael Jones: For many, beans and rice is a nutritional staple in the household. But in many countries it is the only meal one will eat. But is it enough to be considered a "complete meal?"

If my client expresses an interest, I go on to calculate his or her Birth Cards by adding the month, day, century and year of their birth together. In most cases the total can then be reduced to only two major arcana numbers which then become the Birth Cards...
Editor's Note from Lynda Martin: This article is the second in a four-part series on how a highly credentialed psychotherapist uses Tarot in her therapy. See Part 1 here. Part 2 shows how to calculate and use two (sometimes three) birth cards to identify the focus of your lifelong learning.

One of my dreams came true when I was in the 8th grade. I won a horse! I was a 4-H member in my community and participated in all the projects. That year one of the local farmers who raised Tennessee Walking Horses announced that he was giving a 6-month-old colt to the most outstanding 4-H Club member in the county that year. Well, I loved horses, read all the novels in the library, studied books, and listened to grown-ups whenever they talked about horses. So I got to work - very, very hard. I don't remember all the things I did but I WON...

A report released by the Union of Concerned Scientists earlier this month finds greater economic opportunities and jobs for rural communities where organic dairy farming methods are employed over conventional farming methods...
