New Moon 10° Pisces
After so many other award shows in 2014 ... the best is always last. Nothing says it better than the Oscars hosted by Ellen. This should be a really entertaining show. Enjoy.
This week seems to be about more weather problems and the beginning of all those holidays (see list above). One week from today, many areas move their clocks forward one hour, which hopefully signals the onset of spring.
Friday morning February 28, 2014
Lots of clients are braving the cold to come here over the next three days ... as well as a few spirits of note. A spirit named Danny, in his 30's, who died on 9/11, came to visit this morning. I will let you know later if he has any connection with today's clients who I've never read.
Tower 1 (North Tower) had the antenna spire.
Between laughter and tears, Danny stayed for his sister's reading ... sharing facts about his life before and after he died ... a knowing that he was going to die young ... then suddenly announcing, "I'm going to fly by your window as a white bird." Before we could say anything ... a large white bird swooped right in front of us ... sending chills up and down our bodies. Luckily my client was doing a video recording of the session on her iPhone. I grabbed her phone ... pointed it straight ahead and captured the moment. I love my job .... and technology ... and fun spirits. Thanks Danny ... Stay in touch.
Just after Angela left, I walked back to the table and found the photo of Danny posted above - lying on the floor. It had "accidentally" slipped out of Angela's folder of photos she had collected for the reading. I ran to the door and caught her, just before she entered the elevator ... the one on the left ... but that was another adventure.
Saturday evening March 1, 2014.
This afternoon I went to the eye doctor for a checkup. As I sat in the waiting room, a man in his late 20's, with a bandage over his left eye, sat down next to me. Yesterday, around the same time I read Angela, he was working with a jackhammer removing concrete debris under the new One World Trade Center which still remain from the old construction. Suddenly something flew into the air striking him in the eye. I asked about protective goggles and such, which he always wears, but momentarily he had to remove them to further inspect something. Unable to ease the pain in his eye, which turned out to be a corneal abrasion, he described his harrowing experience driving to the eye doctor, in so much pain, he had to pull over from time to time and close his eyes. The doctor treated the eye and asked him to return today.
He told me about the 5 buildings that will be part of the new complex - which should take another 10 years to complete in his estimation. He also told me about other interesting things above and below Ground Zero including strange spirit visitations and unique paranormal activity.
When he parks his car every day, security checks everything including underneath the car with mirrors ... and when he enters the building, they use a retinal scanner. ... This very interesting conversation was abruptly interrupted when a nurse came out and called his name ... Danny!

Ukraine orders full military mobilization over Russia moves BBC - March 2, 2014
Ukraine has ordered a full military mobilisation in response to Russia's build-up of its forces in Crimea.
The Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It has an interesting history, tied to relatives on my mother's side I never met, as they died during World War II. I have many clients from the Ukraine, who seem drawn to me. I often think we're connected in the grids somewhere in another part of reality.
The Ukraine is home to 44.6 million people. As of 2011, it was the world's third-largest grain exporter. Human settlement in Ukraine and its vicinity dates back to 32,000 BC, with evidence of the Gravettian culture in the Crimean Mountains. By 4,500 BCE, the Neolithic Cucuteni-Trypillian Culture flourished in a wide area that included parts of modern Ukraine including Trypillia and the entire Dnieper-Dniester region. During the Iron Age, the land was inhabited by Cimmerians, Scythians, and Sarmatians. Between 700 BC and 200 BC it was part of the Scythian Kingdom, or Scythia. Later, colonies of Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome and the Byzantine Empire, such as Tyras, Olbia and Hermonassa, were founded, beginning in the 6th century BC, on the northeastern shore of the Black Sea, and thrived well into the 6th century AD. The Goths stayed in the area but came under the sway of the Huns from the 370s AD. In the 7th century AD, the territory of eastern Ukraine was the centre of Old Great Bulgaria. At the end of the century, the majority of Bulgar tribes migrated in different directions, and the Khazars took over much of the land. Read more ...

Spaceweather - Saturday March 1, 2014
Twice every year, around the time of the equinoxes, Earth can pass directly between the Sun and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), producing a series of beautiful eclipses. SDO's vernal eclipse season began yesterday, producing a near-total blackout of the sun. For the next three weeks these eclipses will repeat once a day around 07:30 UT. At the beginning of the season, the eclipses are short, only a few minutes long. Their duration increases to 72 minutes, mid-season, before tapering off to minutes again as the season winds down. Because most eclipses are relatively short, there is still plenty of uninterrupted time for SDO to monitor activity on the sun. Researchers estimate a scant 2% data loss averaged over the weeks ahead. The ongoing eclipse season will end in late March. Between now and then, stay tuned for some rare blackouts.
