That too! Hehe.

That’s going to be me on my 30th birthday next month, minus everything becoming political.

My birthday happens to be five days after Christmas so it might be a boozy holiday season.

I don’t drink and there is not a drop of liquor in the house haha… we just don’t like it. Not that we care what others do, we are just not drinkers. (I think my childhood put me off it) 

Anyway, adding booze to this gang …. omg. I did it one year at Christmas. I made martini’s … 3 hours later eek….forget it. Never again. 

I think it’s time for these young people to host this stuff. (the youngest is 35) But, they won’t do it. They claim they are too tired from work. One just said, ‘don’t you realize I just worked 50 hours’? (I worked 60 hours a week all my life and I still did it) Now, if I say I don’t want to do it they get mad. No one even brings a side…or a pie or an anything… 

I cleaned up alone. I literally stood in the kitchen from when I woke…till bedtime.  I don’t really care… it’s just a sign of what’s to come for the next generations I guess.  They are going to miss all this one day and then maybe they will start. I hope so.

@soup,

that is so disrespectful of them. Can’t they all just at least bite their tongue because of you?

Yesterday I went to visit Shiny Taurus’ dad and his wife for Thanksgiving. I pretty much hung out with them because the house was full of people and I don’t do well with small talk. Anyway, during the evening Trump came up for like two seconds, and the words “witch hunt”. Then everyone moved on. Whew.

I probably won’t be that lucky at my parents’ house tomorrow. Mom’s a super-Aquarius and Dad’s an Aquarius Moon and Virgo Sun. If they start going on about the “witch hunt” (not saying it’s fair, just tired of hearing about it!) or about how “evil” the other side is, I may just try to change the subject LOL.

“Hey sis, did you hear about what happened between Lushious Massacr and Rich Lux? They’re not friends anymore. Girl, Lushious made a video on YouTube calling Rich’s friend Nick a bully” and then we can dive into THAT. 😅

So there’s a idea if you get roped into politics–find something more innocuous to talk about.

WinterMoon, do you want my mother to whip out her Bible and start quoting verses at me about the evils of witchcraft and divination? 😆

haha….. 

I went to school (to learn about herbs) in Florida last year. I sent some pic’s home through text. I sent one to my oldest son…it was really pretty. His response was ‘Looks like Salem to me’ haha they tease the crap out of me about astrology. I get…. what’s for dinner from the cauldron? Are you still practicing your Wiccan crap? 

It’s not taken seriously and they laugh… all the jokes. I stopped talking about it. They’ve turned me into a cartoon haha… My mom is a witch now……eek_gif

I finally said to all of them, You’re just not smart enough to understand it. They laugh… 

I have a friend…. she said, that is demonic. I will pray for you. You can’t possibly believe in God and study that stuff. I fear you’re lost eek She’s still praying for me. shrug_gif

I am not cooking or hosting ——> tree_gif

Yeah, I have to keep my spiritual beliefs to myself when speaking to my grandparents. They’re super religious and keep trying to force their religious beliefs down my throat. I also don’t talk politics with them. 

One is a Taurus and the other a Capricorn. That’s all I know. Lol.

Surprised there would be a reference to Salem from out “West”. I am a direct descendant of one of the “witches” that were hung in Salem Village and others accused. These people were not witches they were victims. Victims of beliefs…they were actually murdered. Salem has a big income tourist industry bragging about it and building it like a sideshow and the place is always packed at Halloween time. Imagine, these people gave up their lives and they are still generating money for the place. Just sayin.

They were murdered Wintermoon. It was a tragedy. Makes me sick! Now a part of that tragic history is a novelty. It’s heartbreaking if you understand what really happened. Now people make circus money off actual murder. cry

They just think its something funny to say to me when they have no understanding of what astrology is. It’s like anything else…people have no understanding so they poke fun…  

My son said to me one day…. you forgot to do that but you can remember when Mercury is in retrograde? I just laugh too… what they don’t know is that I have everyone of them figured out because I know the exact moment they were born LOL 

I give them all a pass… my circle is full of comedians. Sometimes they are funny, other times they think they are funny. wink

One calls the other one….I can’t find mom. Other on says, oh…she’s probably in Salem again. laugh

Wow, your family members and friend are being jerks. 😡

Years ago I had to deal with a similar attitude from my parents after seeing a naturopath. Dad made a few dismissive comments about this “quackery” I was getting involved in. I find that insulting considering Mom used to have a pantry closet full of natural supplements and treatments,  and a strong belief that it’s better to start with God’s remedies first (plant medicine). And naturopath medicine is quackery?? huh 

Some parts of alternative medicine–yeah, a bit questionable. But a client of mine, who is a born again Christian and Native American medicine woman, has books at her place about natural healing through medicine. Many medications on the market have their roots in the plant world. So there’s definitely merit to it. 

“Dinner from the cauldron”? “Wiccan crap”? 

Tell them this at Christmas:
