February 2019 "Rants & Raves"

February is such a short month.  I did not have nearly enough time to finish everything I had set out to do!  I do hope that you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day.
Two of my three websites have been updated.  (If you find any mistakes, please feel free to email me.)  CVAPI is the final that is currently under construction.  

I have added some of the popular purchases to the homepage of my website, as well as I am adding the "How to" section and will be adding to that in the month of March.  Remember that the best times to reach me are between 1pm to 1am and to please check my Live Calendar for availability. 

March brings in the first Mercury Retrograde for 2019.  Running from March 5th to March 28th, and as always this is the time of the unexpected.  This one seems to have many high's and low's in regards to finances as well as a warning of "Accidents" in general, so be careful.

March also brings in St Patty's Day on the 17th, followed by the first day of spring on the 20th.  I know many of you have had a very rough winter and are looking forward to spring.

Jaselyn is doing well and looking forward to a break in the weather so she can get back to her schedule of horse riding!  (Although she visits the farm often :) )

March in general appears to be a busy month for most, as you transition from being stuck inside of the house to outdoor activities.

February has been a wonderful month but short.  I am currently caught up on emails as I was running a bit behind.

YouTube no longer automatically posts to Twitter and Google Plus, therefore I have placed the direct link on my homepage.  Do not forget your free monthly horoscopes as your March horoscopes should be available now.

Until next time...

January 2019 "Rants & Raves"

I feel like we just had Christmas, and already the first month of the year is over.  Happy New Year everyone!  I'm sure most of you are looking forward to the new beginnings 2019, will bring in.  It will also take some time to get used to writing 2019.  (Am I the only one catching myself still writing 2018???)

I do have some changes coming up in 2019.  First of all, many of you have pointed out that my websites still read 2018.  Thank you for that!  (You guys always keep me straight!)  It is a slow process and they will all change to read 2019 within the next week.

Next I will be adding a couple of things to the website.  I spent many years writing for Examiner and published in a couple of magazines, so I will make those articles available on the website.

As always, what I do is based on your input.  With that said, I will add a "How To" section to the website as well.  This I plan to add videos and articles to.  This will be added sometime in the month of February.

I'm also disappointed to hear that YouTube will no longer automatically post my videos to Twitter and Google Plus.  (It was a bonus in sharing those videos!)  So at this point, I do not know if I will invest the time to share them all, or just direct you straight to my channel.  (Remember to subscribe, and click on the bell for notifications when new videos go up.)

In the same turn, I am very pleased to see that my videos will now run on two free apps, available on Android and IPhone.  

The first app is TopBuzz.  A tabloid type app, full of videos and articles.  You can search for Jackie Tomlin on that app and find most of my videos.  The second is a new app of the "Daily Horoscope", (Look for the purple and yellow icon!)  This app is LOADED with information, from videos to articles.  You will find my videos under the daily horoscopes under the "More" tab.

For those that ask often, Jaselyn is doing wonderful.  She is still in preschool and visits the horse farm weekly, she will begin riding again when the weather breaks.

We are coming into the time frame that we can begin the countdown to spring!  Believe it or not, we have almost hit the halfway mark of winter, it will be spring before you know it.  I think it's funny how 60 degrees in the fall and we are ready to turn the heat on, but yet 60 degrees in the spring and we are ready to open the windows!

Don't forget, when scheduling an appointment, to either email me, or check my "Live Calendar" for my availability, as I update it often.  Your free horoscopes for February will publish within the next couple of days.

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

December 2018 "Rants & Raves"

We are getting ready to close another year and how quickly 2018 went by!  I hope you have all had a Merry Christmas and are getting ready to embrace 2019.  For most this is a time of new beginnings and New Year's Resolutions!

December has been a busy month but a month that certainly did not disappoint.  I celebrated my birthday on the 12th, and thanks to my daughter, a nice surprise being surrounded by my friends! (Sagittarius here!)

Of course it's the little ones that make Christmas special!  Miss Jaselyn had a wonderful Christmas as she watched her horse collection grow!  (She didn't get all of these for Christmas but that collection is definitely growing.)  Each and every one has their own name, and she will get highly upset if I fail to remember them or get them confused.

I did take the time to get the December newsletter out and WOW....what a response!  Thank you all for the Christmas wishes and just giving me updates on you, and pics of your trees and recipes, it was a pleasure to see how you responded when I expected none at all!

In reviewing 2018, not only for myself, but those around me and my clients, I am truly amazed at what changes have occurred for everyone over the course of a year.  Honestly I don't expect 2019 to disappoint either.  There will be LOTS of changes and transitions in 2019.  All of them appear to be most positive, the catch is....I don't think they are coming in the form that you imagine.  It also appears that there will be a lot of reconnecting with those that we have lost touch with.  This could begin as soon as January.

The good news is we are bringing in another year where we are not under Retrograde!  Your free monthly horoscopes will post on my website on Monday.  A bit extended for 2019, and below them you will find the dates for the Retrogrades in 2019.  (Not until March)  You will also find your traits of the zodiac signs as well as your compatibility.

As of now, I really don't have any changes to announce for 2019.  Things are going along with minimal problems, and of course I will add new services as the year progresses.  (It seems I always do!)  I do want to take the time to thank you all for another amazing year!

I do read each and every email I get although a lot of times, I don't take the time to respond due to time constraints.  Keep them coming!  I love hearing your progress reports!

As most of you know the one-year email forecast takes off in popularity this time of year.  With that said, please expect a 2-day delay in getting them.

Whether you are heading out New Year's Eve or just staying safe and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Until next time...(or next year :)

November 2018 "Rants & Raves"

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I am sure by now you are all over turkey!  I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my daughter and granddaughter. I will also have to say, HAT'S OFF to my daughter who prepared a full Thanksgiving dinner on her own!

Jaselyn's birthday was actually on Thanksgiving day this year, so we had many reasons to be thankful.  We followed this up with a large western themed party for her 5th birthday the following weekend.

Unfortunately, due to it being cold and raining we had to cancel the horses coming for rides.  However, she did have a goat and a rabbit visit that she was more then thrilled about.

So who is ready for Christmas?  NOT ME!  As in I have done absolutely nothing.  No shopping, and no decorating. I am now trying to catch the Christmas spirit!

As you know Mercury Retrograde is still in effect until December 6th.  (The time frame of the unexpected.)  This one appears to pack a mechanical punch to it!  I don't know about you guys, but we have certainly felt it here with things breaking down.  Not to worry as it is the last one of the year and we won't see another one until March of 2019.  (Yes, another New Year without being under Retro!)

You can look for some more changes on my website this month, as I am striving for "Simplicity and user friendly".  Also, I will see about moving the "Fan Favorites" to the homepage as well.  This is the time of the year where the one-year forecast takes off, as well as I have many taking advantage of the Video Reading option.  (This is actually a fan favorite outside of the US, twenty or so minutes of me running my mouth!)

I am often approached about Skype, and would like to explain why I don't use it.  Though I have tried many times over the years, the connection still appears to be a problem.  Now you have to remember, that not only are some of you out of the country, I still have some here in the US in rural areas, where wifi is not the strongest.  So to avoid the frustrations of the connection problems, it is just an option that I don't offer.  (Also, it helps to keep my frustrations down, lol.)

I have been consistent with the YouTube videos, but not have been as consistent with doing YouTube Live, like I would like.  I am looking at actually setting a schedule up for this come the first of the year.  (Click on the "Bell" on the channel to get YouTube notifications from me.)

It is also the time of the year that I begin updating my email list.  Make sure your on it by clicking here!  Also, if you have not heard from me, chances are, you have changed your email address, and I am either unaware of it, or it has not been changed on my end.  In that case, email me directly.

Your free monthly horoscope will post to my website on December 1st, so be sure to check them out.

Feel free to follow me on Twitter or join me on Facebook.

I wish you all a happy and safe holiday.


Until next time...

October 2018 "Rants & Raves"

Happy Halloween everyone!  For those out with the little ones tomorrow night I hope you have a safe and happy time!  Jaselyn decided to paint her pumpkin this year, and I believe she still plans to carve it as well.  Below is a picture of her as a cowgirl and Casey being a good sport with a pumpkin mask.

Our weather here has been all over the place this month as fall settles in.  Unfortunately, we did have some tornado warnings that took out a couple of our trees.  

I have had numerous emails from you this month regarding the YouTube videos.  I did have some technical problems at one point that have since been corrected.  I also plan to keep up with the YouTube live videos as we have built a strong community over there.  Thank you for the emails, the only way I know if an era has occurred on YouTube or my websites is if you take the time to let me know!

November is approaching and I will run specials throughout the end of the year.  Also, it looks like I will be adding a couple of new services in November.  Again, it is coming into that time of year and I am getting emails regarding the one-year forecast.  Although popular this time of year, it will remain in place throughout the year and going into 2019.

I will also work on updating my mailing list, so if you have not subscribed to my newsletter you may find the link here.

New on the site....I have removed the 800# for now.  I have not decided if I am bringing this back, or keeping things the way they are.  Your input is greatly appreciated!!!

I still have a couple of openings for new Reiki students so if you are interested please email me and let me know.  (These have also been purchased in the past as gifts.)

Our next Mercury Retrograde begins November 16th and runs through December 6th.  This is the time frame of the unexpected.  Although I am not anticipating things to go can carry that "Mechanical punch" of things breaking down.

Your free monthly horoscope should post to the website today for the month of November, so ENJOY!
