youtube ouija board featuring iz

wow, intoxicated zodiac’s scary video got one star! and 2 thumbs down. click here to watch gwen’s directorial debut and the cheesiest video you ever saw…

WATCH IZ’S OUIJA BOARD ON YOUTUBE

all kidding aside though, these “game” boards don’t joke around. i won’t even use one anymore, the death threats became a little too repetitive for my comfort level. They’re a portel for spirits–negative or positive–so if you are going to play with one, keep the garlic close by and a stake at the ready.

april BAROSCOPES

aries2.gifParties, meetings, dinners, happy hours, more meetings… there is some serious action filled activity in your future… and as an aries you’ll love every minute of it! But this month will be so frenetic, that even YOUR boundless energy might begin to wane. It’ll be hard, but refrain from getting sloshed. with everything else that’s going on, The last thing you’ll want to nurse is a hangover. Limit one.

taurus1.gifTaurus’ brand of laid back ambition is quite beneficial this month. Did you know that The bull is the zodiacal gardener? try planting a garden if you haven’t before–your naturally green thumbs will likely work magic! Why not start with mint for some summer mojitos? Like seeds that have been sown, patiently allow your dreams to grow slowly and surly on their own. Though you can’t see it, there are roots developing. And Like a plant breaking through the soil, you will clearly see when it is time to put your plan into motion.

gemini1.gifThis moth will require split second decisions, and offer sparkling opportunities. Including ones pertaining to your love life–always a favorite of the twins! In typical geminian style, You’ll probably want to jump right in. but don’t. stick your little toe in and feel the water first. If it feels good, then go for it. There’s nothing wrong with saying, “let me sleep on it.’ Mull over that proposition with a well-deserved night cap, and get back to them in the morning.

cancer.gifThis month offers the chance to make some real progress with whatever you have been toiling on. The stars are aligned for good decision making… so do it, and do it now! A boost of self confidence will make this much easier, so surround yourself with positive people, and positively good drinks. You are crab, hear you roar. Seize this month’s moment dear cancer, cocktail in hand, smile on face.

leo.gifThis month you have the chance to be the star pupil in the school of life. Don’t rely on anyone else to learn for you. Push your own envelope, and go through the motions yourself. You are a sponge, and an infinite amount of wisdom is yours for the taking if you will only put in the effort required. Do you know how to make a caipirinha? It’s this summer’s hottest drink… master that first, and move on to more serious lessons from there…

virgo.gifAn intense month is in store… and as a virgo you can handle the pressure better than most signs. You might feel like shouting at the top of your lungs in anger or elation, but try not to! Meet this month’s challenging energy with diplomacy and calm. Your reward will be an avoidance of unwanted friction, and why not a specialty cocktail too? Kumquats are just ending their season, so snatch up the last few and chill out with a kumquat kooler. Avoid losing your head during the day by loosening up with a drink at night.

libra.gifLove makes the world go round, especially now, with a planetary emphasis on your relationships this month. As a diplomatic libra, grace and tact serve you quite well. But right now, blunt candor will serve you better. Easier said than done for a sign as gracious and charming as yourself. Remember that A drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts. Dear libra, drink up and start talking!

scorpio.gif Steady as she goes is this month’s MO. Not so simple, as scorpio is the sign of extremes. But now is a time where Moderation is truly key. To repeat, now is not the time to be downing cocktail shots, but one to be distilling the pomegranate gin for next month’s gourmet tipple. Be it alcohol, people, work or play… caution is hot, and Spontaneity is not.

sag.gifSmooth sailing ahead… sunny blue skies, warm pleasant breezes and sweet strawberry daiquiris are all in your future. As the hedonistic sign of Sagittarius, you don’t need to be told how to enjoy life. So dear hunting centaur, this month I implore you to do just that. Lay low with a stiff one and savor life’s riches.

cappie.gifThis month will be ushered in with the dizzying pace you seem to have grown accustomed. Never fear though, there is light at the end of the tunnel and this month promises to end on a calmer note. Contrary to your belief, Not every agenda needs to be coddled and steered. When it is time to resume that task it will be made very obvious to you. Be sure to celebrate the end of april with a golden tipple… you deserve it ms. workaholic.

aquarius.gifSo much to do, so little time with which to do it. This month’s hectic energy may have you running around like an unfortunate chicken (a headless one). Unless they go by the name of whiskey, vodka or gin, avoid getting involved in too many things. Better to solve one problem than to almost solve five. A busy bee like yourself best imbibe a bee’s knees cocktail ASAP. Bottoms up!

pisces.gifIt’s all about you and your money dear pisces. This month, don’t listen to that other fish trying to pull you down to the bottom of the ocean. Listen to your inner flying fish and leap out of the sea towards that rainbow with the pot of gold. Choose your investments wisely and you will certainly not regret them. Celebrate your future wealth with an extravagant libation.

happy birthday pisces

albert.pngmy favorite pisces of all time is albert einstein. i loved his wild fro, and even more, i loved his unyielding piscean compassion… he was a vegetarian. like all the hyper-sensitive water signs (pisces, cancer, scorpio) it is the sign of the two fish that is probably the most sympathetic. the dreamy and irrisistable mind of pisces is ocean of deep thoughts, that are as deep as the ocean. this great genius is the author of both quotes below which capture the essence of of pisces:

“All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge.” (source)

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” (source)

happy birthday pisces : )

scorpio’s red currant – you’ll never see it coming

redcurrant-smash.gifscorpio is anything but simple. in fact, they tie with capricorn for the title of most complex sign. often times misunderstood, and other times just completely unreadable. i have several scorpio friends and i can’t tell you how they constantly shock the shit out of me. they often seem to live double lives… the life they want you to see, and their own private underworld to which even their most intimate friends are closed off from. i’ve actually found that scorpios appear to be almost simpleton-like on the surface… blissfully unaware of the pain that is life, or the opposite… unfortunately unaware of the pleasure that life can be. i must have spent hours pondering my scorpion friend’s deceptively simplistic outlook on life. how can they be so one dimensional i ask myself? and then they hit me when i least expect it with: i’m quitting my job of five years to do absolutely nothing, or i’m moving across country forever, or i’m breaking up with the woman i was engaged to marry, or i’ve wanted to sleep with you for the last six years, or i’ll never forgive that person who still thinks i’m their good friend! and this grand plan that they’ve been mentally perfecting for months on end comes to fruition and hatches into this monstrous chick that will eat us all alive. i am always left wondering, how did i miss that one coming? so, in honor of the most seemingly naive, yet uber complicated signs, i bring you one of the simplest, yet most delectable tipples. compliments of the god of war herself, mars’ red currant smash is deliciously trite, and unexpectedly addictive… it’s just smashing, darlling, like the scorpion queen herself.

SMASHING DARLING (red currant smash)

3 oz vodka
3 oz raw organic simple syrup
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
2 handfuls red currants

muddle everything but vodka in low ball glass. when macerated, add ice and vodka. stir and serve.

NOTE: some peeps love the floating berries. strain the drink if you think you’ll mind them.

now you might think i’d be all against using blatantly out of season produce, such as the red currant. but keep in mind, to add yet more complexity to scorpio’s red currant, that there is sometimes less of a carbon footprint to import something than there is to grow that same something locally. hard to keep it all straight, isn’t it? i’m not sure about the red currants i purchased specifically, but it’s just food for carbon thought.

Which Zodiac Cocktail should my sign be drinking?

nature-chart3.jpgLike ourselves, every plant has an astrological sign. The fruit or herb with which a cocktail is made determines that cocktail’s zodiac sign. Ultimately, a libation ends up having more than one sign, just like us. Our astrological chart contains many different signs, the most important of which is our sun sign and rising (ascending) sign. But we also have a moon (emotions) sign, venus (love) sign, saturn (career) sign, ect. Similarly, a mixed drink ends up having many different signs because of the variety of ingredients in contains. alcohol is ruled by mercury, simple syrup is ruled by venus, lime juice is ruled by saturn, bitters is ruled by mars, and so forth and so on. The accent flavor usually captures the essence of the drink and becomes the “sun” sign of a cocktail. So a kumquat margarita would belong to leo, as kumquats happen to be ruled by the sun.

It’s a challenge to simplify our complex taste with an equally complex cocktail. But as a general guideline, the ancient principles of herbal astrology, sympathy and antipathy, are used. Sympathy refers to a like-minded herb, such as the sun-drenched orange-colored kumquat, which is ruled by the sun and belongs to Leo. Leo people should be naturally drawn to the flavors of Leo plants. Antipathy refers to an opposite-minded herb. A cool cucumber belongs to Cancer and is ruled by the damp, chilly Moon. It is an opposite-natured and complimentary herb to the sunny kumquat. Imbibing a chilled cucumber martini could serve as a liquid air conditioner for a heated sign like Leo. Likewise for Cancer, who can warm their cold bones with a sunny citrus drink.

The concept of cocktail astrology is akin to having friends with different zodiac signs, or to choosing a life partner with a similar or opposite nature to that of your own. Live healthy, imbibe wisely, cheers!
