Tea drinkers read this!!!

If you buy pre-made herbal tea blends (usually have names like Bedtime, Calm, etc) check the ingredients. I just saw a Nighttime blend that had St. Johns Wort in it, which can be dangerous when mixed with some medications. Talk to you doctor what herbs you should avoid. (Especially when you want to ingest st. Johns wort or mugwort) 

 A simple hint to remember is just because its in a food store, doesn’t mean its safe.

Sun in the Astrological Houses

Your sense of identity & purpose is directly related to: 

 ☼ Sun in the 1st House: Your behavior, personal concerns, interests and style. Your Self-image is a main theme in your life, so you’re very careful and/or self-conscious when it comes to projecting yourself. 
☼ Sun in the 2nd House:  What you’re able to maintain, build or achieve (esp. materially). Security is a main theme in your life, so you may be overly possessive, materialistic or eternally unsatisfied.
☼ Sun in the 3rd House: Your communication skills and your ability to understand concepts, ideas and people’s behaviors. Your mental abilities and intelligence are part of who you fundamentally are.
☼ Sun in the 4th House: Your private life, home (literal or not) and your roots. Personal fulfillment comes as you lay foundations and form bonds. You feel complete when you know where you belong.
☼ Sun in the 5th House: Your unique qualities and ability to demonstrate them. You need an outlet for your personal potential and thus strive to express yourself creatively and freely.
☼ Sun in the 6th House: Your daily work, to being busy and productive, organizing and fixing things, and not wasting your time. Being useful and efficient is part of who you are, just like helping others.
☼ Sun in the 7th House: Your partnerships and relationships, so you may care too much about how others feel about you. You dislike being alone, and you enjoy life better when you’re with other people. 
☼ Sun in the 8th House: Your experiences, discoveries and the fulfillment of your deepest desires, but also to the grasp you have on your inner hidden self. You’re anything but superficial.
☼ Sun in the 9th House: Your thirst for learning as your desire to get in touch with the different, the foreign and unknown helps you attaining higher consciousness, the truth and pure knowledge.
☼ Sun in the 10th House: Your public image, your social position and recognition. You seek personal fulfillment above all, and achieving your goals is of the utmost importance.
☼ Sun in the 11th House: Your connections and groups you fit in, but also to your hopes for this world and personal dreams. You feel complete among like-minded people in terms of interests/goals/ideals, but you praise diversity and tend to avoid bias.
☼ Sun in the 12th House: Your inner world, but you fear expressing it, so you hide. You’re highly introspective and your will is directed inwards making you feel isolated and passive. You daydream away your life.

wherever uranus is placed can signal where energy is restless, unhinged, and volatile. with uranus in the 1st the self expression itself can be highly obscure and strangely vibrating, with uranus in the 2nd the energy for DOING, for BEING, for ESTABLISHING, for forming value and foundation in the person fluctuates, this with self worth so they can be highly strung achievers for months and then just give up. with uranus in the 3rd the mental energy can be sleepless, unsettled, and buzz in and out of activity, the thought patterns are very sporadic, the same with uranus in the 1st… the uranus 4th house person has an eccentric persona, however it reflects very much more in their life - their unusual responses to daily events, lifestyle, values can be innately unusual. with uranus in the 5th creative energy switches on and off, they are bought to dazzling inspiration and then become cooly critical, uranus in the 6th can indicate restless, uncontrollable mental energy often provoking abruptly arriving and disappearing panic. with uranus in the 7th the energy in relationships is highly strung, often striving on stimulation, but this can become drama because their romantic feelings can change so quickly, erratic behaviour can be sourced by a need for alone time, uranus in the 8th has a restless and unhinged psychic energy, it jolts to the unusual so apparitions can play the trickster, the person can be sporadically bothered by ‘ghosts’ or ‘spirits’ and have everything suddenly stop.. only to be repeated erratically, uranus in the 9th have a wakeful higher mind, inducing startling bolts of intuition and prophecy, often the individual has trouble committing to learning as an adult because the energy for study variates so much, uranus in the 10th has an unhinged energy for life - that being overly restless to achieve and then helplessly flailing, often setting up strange objectives that push them out of their comfort zone and compromise the success they have built themselves. uranus in the 11th has a restless, almost anxious social persona, appearing and disappearing, craving connection but breaking under expected demand, uranus in the 12th has an unhinged, wired psychic energy, like electricity from infinity that has liquified itself in the surface, sending abrupt waves of intuition, pain, and enlightenment, worlds become visible and then vanish, lure and condemn
