IX of Cups (reversed)-Postpone decision-making. Weigh your options. No one minces words now. Beware of arrogance- try to be easy going


II of Swords-Tensions begin to mellow. Help is onthe way. Slow down and relax- you're entering a deisurely phase. Make yourself available to others, but don't spread yourself too thin.


Queen of Pentacles-You may be doubting your ability to live up to your responsibilities. Believe in yourself, but don't look for too much aproval from others at this time. Rewards will arrive when you work independently, in your own way.

VI of Swords(reversed)-Learn from the opposition. Look outside yourself for alternative courses of action. Solutions become clear when you get away from day-to-day duties.

Well today was spectacular!!!! I was gone or busy getting ready from 11am till about 8pm! What a wonderful day with my daughter veona and best friend Michelle. We went to the philidelphia Zoo and were there from 230 till 6ish. Just awesome. Sooooo pleased it rocked! Way better then the portland oregon zoo which i was at a couple o years ago. The Pitt Zoo was the last good zoo I was at but was there in 2004/5. So its been years since ive seen some great and lots of animals. The portland zoo didnt even have lions!!!! and missing some other animals and it was small and just not very good which was odd cuz i thought it would be great. And they had a polar bear there that was neurotic and sick and was avery sadddd. But lemme tell you what the Phili Zoo was just lavishing soo nice and well i mean we didnt get to see a couple of animals like the reptiles or gorrillaz/monkeys cuz we were too late and missed the rhinos and giraffe so i was bummd buttt its funny cuz we didnt have an elehpant we got rid of them and i think one died?? not sure but at portland they had a baby elephant there which was HUGE NEWS then and i got to see it with my daughters half sister Trinity it was awesome. I actually still have some awesome pics from taht zoo trip but this zoo trip i got some great ones too!!! OMG THE LIONS/TIGERS were BEAUTIFUL we got too see them play with one another the two girl/boy it was soo sweet to see animals in love and just adorable and the lions omggggg HUGEEEEEEE animals wow they were bigger then any other lions ive EVER SEEEN just amazing aned well i got sooo close to one it was sooo cool...Then after the zoo i went to Delicious Botique/corsets in Phili off of n american ave and got fitted for my corsetts for my runway event (Reflections ) i am a 26" for one type which i forget how to spell it but its basically a fullll corset that has the bust adn all the way to hips so beautiful omg i tried on a 455$ black leather corset i was GUSHINGGGGG INSIDE and wanted it sooo bad. I hope thats the one i model for. Then the other type of corset im a 24 " which is jst from under bust to above hips and well im happy a small or smaller is 22" and i felt good about that!. Well off Etsy!
