Welcome to my monthly newsletter, Astro Hot Tips. I first started this in 1987 and published this until 2012. So it returns rises out of the ashes in 2021. Enjoy the advice and here’s to success for all.
Mercury retrograde alert, January 30th until, February 20th. Life doesn’t stop, just be more analytical about any final decisions you commit to. I have also found that this can also bring back missed opportunities. This includes people who come back to you. I have personally made permanent choices at this time in my life. But it is important to chart the rest of the planets before to make sure they were good and stable choices. If you need help charting the stars, check out one of our talented astrologers.
In my original newsletter, I gave advice to folks with products readily available because it was distributed locally through a shop. In this version, I have streamlined it to include more easily available items you can use.
Spiritual Bath for all, I love using herbs for aligning oneself to benefit your life.
This month I choose Basil, an herb for cleansing and good fortune.
You can obtain fresh basil from the market or use dry.
To prepare a fresh basil bath simply place the herb bundle in a gallon of cold water in a large bowl. The measurements do not have to exact, less water is ok. Now break the herb to release its property and allow it to sit for about an hour. When done strain back into a container. Refrigerate the brew, so it doesn’t spoil.
Dry basil preparation, you need at least half an ounce to one ounce. The usual size sold dry is a whole jar equals an ounce. Water two quarts half jar, the one-gallon whole bottle, one ounce. Bring to a boil about five minutes, be careful not to boil over. Lower to a simmer, about half an hour. Water should be a dark to medium brown color when done.
Allow cooling for about two to three hours. Strain and add to a container. Refrigerate to keep it fresh.
Now there are two ways you can use this bath depending on what you wish to use it for.
Additives change the energy of the bath. For spiritual cleansing to rid yourself of black energy, measure two cups of the bath and add a handful of salt, any salt you choose is fine. If you have Florida Water cologne add a dash, if you want to add cologne any will work, it’s the alcohol property that enhances.
For good luck add about two tablespoons of honey or sugar!!! A dash of cologne for luck works really well with this. For this recipe I use a whisk or for,(even an egg beater works) you want the honey or sugar to be blended well and not sitting in the bottom of the bowl.
There are two methods for these baths. One is the traditional pour it in the bathtub and immerse yourself. This is usually done in a half tub, and you keep pouring the bath over yourself.
My favorite is the “shower method”. Pour about two cups of the bath brew into a plastic or metal container. No glass !!! If it slips and breaks we have a problem!!!!
You can use it straight or with the additional ingredients.
Some folks like to plug the shower so they can keep grabbing bowlful so of the bath and keep pouring over themselves for a few minutes, if not just use it straight.
Step in the shower and have your bath within reach so before you turn off the water you have it within easy reach. Take your normal shower and when done, fill the container under the running shower and slowly pour it over yourself saying ” may this bath be the best bath for obtaining my goals”.
Pat or air dry and go about your day. This bath can be used throughout this month.
