Thursday, September 1st is a New Moon and a solar eclipse ... that will not be visible, just energetically felt, here.

Please check out our Marguerite's new Astrological Blog page here and see what else is in store for us.

Which reminds me ... if you don't receive a Vine one week, you can always check our Blog here also some people have been disappearing off my list for no understandable reason ... if that happens to you or someone mentions it, just send me a note to and ask to be put back on.
