May Horoscope - Happy Birthday Taurus the Bull!

Starcana's Planetary May Horoscope
Written by Starcana ©2007-2008

May 2008... Venus softens her steps into May, as she distances herself from April's pushy Mars - and partners up with friendly Mercury to promote movement and change. Saturn turns direct on May 2, and you will notice some benefits while you take the time to release and let go of any control. Optimistic Jupiter then retrogrades on the 9th - and you may begin to feel challenged about recent decisions that you have made. Don't take time to hesitate, or waste time with too much worrying or over-thinking, as this is a wonderful time to find out what you are actually capable of when it comes to hard work and determination - whether this be in business or personal development. Mars storms his way into confidant Leo, and this may be just what the doctor ordered to help  boost your energy and plan of action! Be sure to use some common sense before you rush forward too fast, or you may find that a change of plans may be necessary, because of an impatient jump. Be prepared to get a little dizzy towards the end of the month when talkative Mercury and dreamy Neptune turn retrograde, and possibly have you REALLY doubting some of your recent decisions and moves. Just slow your pace and control your passionate drive. Don't over analyze, or you will frustrate yourself with doubt and let your fears stop you in your track. Your goals can actually be pursued with some smart preparation... then you can feel certain that you can busta-move!

My Personal Two Sense
I've had a number people who have called or emailed me for advice, suggestions and tips on how to start their own psychic business. The very first thing that is most important for any individual who desires to work their own business is to research, research, and more research. I've spent many years working with computer programs, learning basic web design, design programs, taking extra classes, purchasing books and experimenting with search engine optimization, trial and error with marketing and internet advertising, and then educating myself on whatever I wanted (or needed) to learn.... by simply research, research, and MORE research. Get some basic business books to learn how to have a general business first. Write yourself a business plan. It's a business - just like any other business. Know your taxes, know your laws, and know your business ethics, so that you can last in the competitive marketplace.

If all that seems like too much work, you are most likely not ready to work your own business - as it is steady work that you must invest time, money, and energy in - on a daily basis.

If you want something simple to test just the waters - here is a WONDERFUL book that was written by one of my REALLY cool Libra friends, Christine Jette called "Professional Tarot". She goes into all sorts of areas to help you work through some of the bumps and humps when getting started in a reading business. I HIGHLY recommend it to those who want to get started in this field of work. You can click the book's image below, for more information for this educational 'must'!

Father Of Many
This is for those of you who LOVE my quirky jokes!
(And for the rest - it's just a joke.)

A little boy got on the bus, sat next to a man reading a book, and noticed he had his collar on backwards. The little boy asked why he wore his collar backwards. The man, who was a priest, said. I am a Father." The little boy replied. "My Daddy doesn't wear his collar like that." The priest looked up from his book and answered. "I am the Father of many." The boy said."My Dad has 4 boys, 4 girls and two grandchildren and he doesn't wear his collar that way! The priest, getting impatient, said. "I am the Father of hundreds" and went back to reading his book.
The little boy sat quietly thinking for a while, then leaned over and said,
"Maybe you should wear a condom and put your pants on backwards instead of your collar."

World Malaria Day April 25

I've seen this commercial on TV on a few times, and truly agree with the comment made by Ted Turner... as we really do have much prosperity here in this country, while others suffer from poverty, disease, and death elsewhere. I checked out the advertised television commercial and url, about how Malaria can be prevented by limiting the mosquitoes from delivering  it with something as simple as a mosquito net. I collected some of the info about the program's goal, and hope that we can all make a difference.
Peace, Starcana

Malaria Kills... Malaria is a disease caused by the blood parasite Plasmodium, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. Infected humans experience flu-like symptoms that can result in coma and death. Malaria, from the Medieval Italian words mala aria or “bad air,” infects more than 500 million people a year and kills more than a million— one person dies about every 30 seconds. The disease is particularly devastating in Africa, where it is a leading killer of children. In addition to being home to the deadliest strain of malaria and the mosquito best equipped to transmit the disease, many areas in Africa lack the proper infrastructure and resources to fight back.

Bed Nets... Despite the magnitude of the problem, there is a simple and cost-effective solution to prevent malaria deaths. For just $10, we can purchase a bed net, deliver it to a family, and explain its use. Bed nets work by creating a protective barrier against mosquitoes at night, when the vast majority of transmissions occur. A family of four can sleep under an insecticide-treated bed net, safe from malaria, for up to four years. The benefits of bed nets extend even further than the family. When enough nets are used, the insecticide used to deter mosquitoes makes entire communities safer—including even those individuals who do not have nets.

Although $10 for a bed net may not sound like much, the cost makes them out of reach for most people at risk of malaria, many of whom survive on less than $1 a day. Nets are a simple, life-saving solution, but we need your help to provide them to those in need.  Continue the story and goal on their site
