American’s predictions and wants for the future

 A new report from Pew Research Center indicates that while most Americans anticipate great technological changes in the next few decades, many have doubts that new inventions and advances will help humanity in the long run.

In general, 59% of the 1,000 participants interviewed said technological changes would lead to a better future, while 30% said things would get worse. Many said they expected revolutionary advances in the next 50 years, such as lab-grown organ transplants.

Energy of the Day

We ladies find ourselves emotionally invested today in the hopes and humanitarian dreams of our friends, and in aspirational wishes for our mates. We’re all motivated here by the physical results of having deconstructed and rebuilt our spiritual belief systems, especially improvements in the condition of our circulatory systems, shins, and ankles. Submission to our ideals within partnerships has positive financial results under this energy.

In the sense of spiritual botany, a plant is divided into symbolic sections that create correspondences to a magical nature:

Root: command, control, and bind

Crown: transition and connecting opposites

Stem/Trunk: changing perspective and new insights

Leaves: empowering…

Energy of the Day

A challenging relationship that’s out of balance requires that a choice be made today. Thoughtful communication about mutual secrets and sorrows helps pave a path toward an appropriate outcome, whether the love between us deepens or a parting of ways is called for. It’s wise to be willing to take ourselves apart at the seams in the process of exploring this dynamic.

Energy of the Day

We’re tired of chasing our dreams and of seeking spiritual meaning in what we love, and friction between where we’re spending our creative energies and the things to which we’re magnetically attracted is causing uncertainty and depression. Regimented physical activity increases the pain we’ve always carried but shows us innovative ways in which we can use it to ease the suffering of others; be cautious of overtaxing the heart or raising the blood pressure too much, and of bruising injuries to the shins and ankles. Today offers an opportunity to tear down and reconstruct the way in which we approach our friends and those of our hopes that leave us feeling frustrated and depressed.

Energy of the Week

Evolution in the way we think about social concepts is delaying the making of a decision related to our life’s work, and an objective, unsparing face-to-face heart-to-heart with our partners is required this week to move the situation forward. Disciplined effort applied toward shedding light on illusions and on unearthing hidden motivations in the home pays off here as we take a lucky turn in relation to family stability. Destruction of the reputation we carry in our dealings with others allows for its recreation in a way that favorably serves our careers.

Wolves fighting for dominance as a “thing” came from observation of captive packs.  Observation of genuinely wild packs has revealed that it is not, in fact, a “thing.”

Y’hear that, ya dumbass modern werewolf writers?

hear that, self-styled “alpha males”?

They weren’t even captive packs, they were a bunch of unrelated wolves shoved together in too-small a space.

Energy of the Day

The decision to open up with our families today about those things we don’t usually discuss brings the start of a new cycle of fortune. It’s time to throw it all out there and really get to the root of how our homes function, to restore balance where things have shifted off-kilter. Our feelings threaten to take over at times, but engaging in established rituals gives us an opportunity to take a step back, think about what’s going on, and address it in a smart, stable way.

The word lazy has an unpleasant connotation, doesn’t it? Because it’s humans measuring themselves against other humans based upon a flawed premise, and the flawed premise is: the more you DO, the more you’re WORTH. And that is the most flawed of all flawed premises.

Energy of the Day

Courage and determination are required to stand up for what we deserve today, but taking the initiative to do so can teach us a great deal about ourselves if we’ll learn. Engaging our strengths in pleasurably creative ways leaves us feeling like teenagers, which is fine as long as we don’t take it to the extreme of feeling entitled and taking what we want without respect to those who earned it. Willpower takes us far under this energy when we’ve got the facts to back up our perspective.

What kind of oils and herbs can I use to sooth anxiety
Anonymous

A list of herbs and oils that can help anxiety.

Bergamot
Chamomile
Columbine
Garlic
Geranium
Jasmine
Lavender
Lemon balm
Monkshood
Passionflower
Pennyroyal
Peony
Primrose
Valerian
Vervain
Frankincense
Wormwood

Monkshood is incredibly toxic.It is known as the king of poisons. Pennyroyal is an abortificant. That’s just what jumps out at me.

Wormwood is also toxic in high doses and can cause convulsions and kidney failure.

Really the only ones I would ever feel comfortable recommending to anyone would be lavender and chamomile because they are so mild. Lavender and chamomile are both used in herbal teas for general consumption. Chamomile can cause uterine contractions so pregnant people shouldn’t use it.

In high doses is key. Wormwood in low doses is not a problem and its a fine seasoning for brewers and is not toxic to the touch like monkshood is. Absinthe with controlled levels of wormwood is legal now in the US and Britain for example. And chips of wormwood are sold at the local brew store for seasoning beer.

Do you know how much is too much for wormwood? I’ve been making my own oils but using recipes i’ve found online. I’d hate to poison my self or some person if i gave them some. (I only knew about Pennyroyal!)

If someone is an epileptic, pregnant, or has lots of allergies they should avoid wormwood entirely. Wormwood has thujone in it, which can build up in your system if you say drink wormwood tea all the time or drink absinthe all day long. Here is the medical information on Wormwood: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-729-WORMWOOD.aspx?activeIngredientId=729&activeIngredientName=WORMWOOD

Also there is a distinct difference between homemade infused oils and essential oils. Essential oil of wormwood would have an extremely high concentration of thujone in it, where as an infused oil would be less because much less plant matter is used in the making of an infusion than of distillation. While an essential oil might have used a couple ounces of wormwood in a couple cups of oil and people tend to use small amounts like tiny spoonfuls externally at a time. Thats very different from 15 plus cups of wormwood oil distilled into half an ounce of oil! A tea made with a teaspoon of wormwood herb and a cup of water is also way different than the said essential oil. Also any herb added to alcohol is going to have stronger effects—absinthe was traditionally in everclear… super strong alcohol. Its unclear if the romantics who sat and drank that shit all day died from the alcohol poisoning, the thujone or just both combined.

So my thoughts are, If you are going use wormwood in small doses, more as a seasoning in an oil or drink that you use once in awhile, if you have no contradictions to it (epilepsy, bad allergies, pregnancy). Use the regular methods for testing tolerance and allergies, a bit on your skin, only having a little drink. Etc. And then don’t drink it all day every day as it can build up. Save it for special occasions.

I was wondering why I can’t find Absinthe anywhere, now I know ;_;

If you can’t find absinthe, you can make your own milder version by infusing wormwood, fennel, and anise into vodka. Then you drink it with sugar cubes and water usually. Its one of those things were you would want to just use a little bit of the wormwood, just like with the tea—a teaspoon infused in a cup. And only drink it occasionally.

Energy of the Day

Dreams are brought to fruition here by engaging in physical activities with our significant others, but we must be careful that we’re making our choices for good reasons or those same dreams run a strong risk of dying. Exploring the beliefs of our ancestors to find the parts that draw us on a fundamental level lights the way through a shifting, illusory landscape toward the fulfillment of material wishes we carry for our friends. Friction and agitation arise during this exploration of where we come from, which communication with our partners and others who live in our homes help to alleviate.

Energy of the Day

A relationship is on trial here and a choice will be made, though much to our regret we can’t please everyone; we can figure out who does find us pleasing and focus on delivering what it is they’ve come to count on from us. Communication that doesn’t feel comfortable in the hands, arms, and shoulders and thoughts that cause discomfort in the lungs are coming from a place that’s destructive for us, and we have to decide if it’s a tear-down we want to go about at this time in this way (which it may be). The love and wisdom of our inner children guide us now toward balance in all areas of life and the need to start over.
