…on August 14th, after listening to Michelle Bachmann on TV’s Meet the Press and Face the Nation…she fends off direct questions with scripted responses and says she’ll take down President Obama with Republican platform generalities for cutting government spending.  She has no specific suggestions or solutions to our economic problems.  And she was adamant about having only people who agree with her religious beliefs in her presidency.   

When asked if she was submissive to her husband,  she said submissive means respect.  Mind-boggling is her definition of words…she has a problem with the dictionary definition of the word ‘submissive.’ (submissive – inclined or willing to submit to orders or wishes of others or showing such inclination; “submissive servants”; “a submissive reply”; “replacing troublemakers with more submissive people.”  Michelle says it means ‘respect.’  (respect: To feel or show deferential regard for; esteem.) 

She did say that her mother was 80 and her step-father 87 and she would not like to see them lose their Social  Security “entitlements.”  But we had to cut “entitlements.” That made me feel better???  I conclude…the camera is good to her…her attitude is self-important and she’s fast with her canned answers.  She takes herself very seriously and I cannot.  That’s the blog and here come the forecasts…

…August 15 a #9 conclusions drawn and projects are finished World-Wide Day when outworn beliefs are condemned, corporations expand and inventories are taken.  Petty politicians are asked to be less petty and some time-wasting ends.  A day to focus on world health and welfare problems.  In Your Lifestyle: Debts are paid and you’re called upon to counsel or assist another.  Your personal desires are shelved and you try to do the “big thing” and be generous.  Reflect on past experience when making decisions and get rid of outgrown clothes, people and projects.  Public performances go well, creative ideas gain quality and you expand your thinking and activities.  Today get out of your narrow enclosure, be tolerant  and “forgive and forget.”

Generally compatible Birthday numbers for #15 are:
#1, #3, #6, #8, #9, #10, #12, #15, #17, #18, #19, #21, #24, #26, #27, #28, #30. 

If August 15 is your birthday you have many gifts…artistic, musical and literary that bring you financial success.  You attract opportunities.  You live by your morals, ethics and standards and expect the same of others.  Your home is your castle: You’re a conscientious parent and family-member and are protective to everyone although you re very active and youthful.  You are responsive to the worries of others and must learn emotional control.  You absorb knowledge and get the material rewards you seek with perseverance.       

In 2011, you take a turn for the better.  You get recognition from your peers.  Relationships blossom and if you’ve been planning a new business or a new direction, this is the time to do it.  Doors open for travel and expansions  You gain from a positive attitude and attract supporters who feel they identify with you and your objectives.  You may have a few sleepless nights and be surprised to wake up with creative ideas and reasons to let-go of outgrown plans and people.  This is a year of beginnings and endings. 

In 2011 wear the color saffron to attract compassionate, talented, philosophical friends.. 
Opal is your gem in 2011.

August 2 Ellin Dodge Blogs New Millennium Growing Pains & Daily Numerology Forecasts

August 1, 2011
The cast of the sixth season of Weeds. Left to...

Image via Wikipedia

August 1 musing why we can’t change now…since the new millennium began in 2008…not 2000… we’re infants in the new direction the world must take and are suffering from growing pains…actually, we the people are infants in the teething stage.  We feel pain that comes from new teeth emerging.  We cry, kick and scream as the hidden baby teeth break through and surface.  We see the swollen causes of our problems.  It’s reality…now we see the reasons and still cannot soothe the problems that produce suffering. 

Numerologically we begin the millennium’s new focus in a #1 year and 2000 was a #2*.  Nothing begins in a #2 year.  We started the millennium in 2008**.  I n 2011***, during the three years between 2008 and 2011, details are revealed, foolish risks are taken, we’re not serious enough, outworn structures crumble and “stuff happens” to make us realize that due to impracticality things have to be planned, restructured and regulated differently.  However, we fight to maintain the familiar.

We’re in a #4 Universal Year when we get a reality check and we cry foul.  Mistakes in political structures, economic rules and regulations and budgets come to our attention.  We attempt to reorganize and correct and still try to maintain what we have.  We are the teething infants in millennium growth  and we have swollen gums, cry and hold on to the baby tooth = it remains hidden.

When we agree that a new economy is emerging, our infant tooth is seen and it can be put to practical use.  We can begin to patiently chew on the problems.  If we’re courageous, honest, determined babes in the new millennium, we’ll be able to digest the why and how of reconstruction, burp up lotsa’ hot air and  investigate appropriate changes in 2012****.

2012 is the #5 year that sends us off to kindergarten…gives us the freedom, enthusiasm, curiosity and opportunities to investigate unconventional options, pivot our naive focuses and benefit from experiences.  In 2013 we settle in domestically with a more mature, self protective, responsible direction and we get different types of growing pains.

  *2000 = (2+0+0+0 = #2)
**2008 = 2 + 0 + 0 + 8 = 10 and 1 + 0 = #1
***2011 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 1 = #4
****2012 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 2 = #5
That’s the Blog and here come the forecasts…    

August 2 a #5 surprises, pivotal change = the scare is dispelled World-Wide Day when the speculators and ordinary folks wonder what really happened.  Interest in the Super Congress increasing their super powers expands.  Accidents in the headlines.  Activity in commerce and international trade.  The beginning of a month of what-we-hear-is-not-what-we- get…we do get a lot of hot air.   In Your Lifestyle: Work plans change and it’s difficult to get your nose back to the grindstone.  You’re looking for an escape from restrictions…be it movies, a walk in the park, a different style lunch or a new venture…a day to promote, expand…do something different… and get away from the details and the ordinary. 

Generally compatible Birthday numbers for #2 are: #1, #2 (can lack ambition), #3, #4, #6, #7 (can be too inactive), #8, #9, #10, #11, #12, #13, #15. #16, #17, #18, #19, #20, #21, #22, #24, #25, #26, #27, #28, #29, #30, #31.  

If August 2 is your birthday you are sensitive to people and your environment….in youth, family is too close or too separate and as an adult you become too responsible for the well-being of everyone.  Your greatest strength is diplomacy, you have talent for attracting what you need and for catching and collecting details.  You are happy and succeed as a business or intimate support and booster for active, ambitious partners.  If you lack self-confidence, you gain it by becoming “the power behind the throne.” 

In 2011, you have a variety of experiences, some competitive…some sensual… that add to your mental library.  In May, your focus changed and  there have been risks and a need for caution since.  Through September, you gain wisdom from experience although you may view the constant changes as a testing.  You’ve had opportunities and options to choose and a choice in the way you want to handle things…however, in October, responsibilities for family and your obligations come in to curtail your freedom and put you on a more conventional path.  This year to “expect the unexpected” alters your focus and you feel a need for a curve in your ambitions.

In 2011 wear the color turquoise to attract versatile, understanding, adaptable associates.. 
Turquoise is your gem in 2011.
People whose names begin with the letters E, N and W spark your curiosity in 2011
Tuesday is your lucky day of the week in 2011

Your 2011 lottery numbers are
: 5, 8, 9, 14, 17, 23.

August 1 Ellin Dodge Blogs Winehouse, Jolie, Schwarzenegger, Pacino & Daily Numerology Forecasts

Cover via Amazon

July 31 musing…Amy Winehouse had planned to adopt a ten year old from St Lucien before she died…the child must be devistated… Angelina Jolie honored for first directorial film and her work as an ambassador in Bosnia…Angelina got teary…Arnold Schwarzenegger spent his birthday bike riding and dining with his children…where was Maria?…Al Pacino‘s daughter tagged with a DWI in NYC…Dad flew right to the rescue…and I’m brain-fried from listening to all sizes, shapes and colors of TV media opining and whining while waiting for the debt- ceiling dust to settle.  
 
August 1 a #4 mistakes corrected, attend to details & maintain the schedule World-Wide Day when the Stock Market steadies, demonstrators raise their voices and rebel and plans that don’t make progress, just maintain what we have, are set.   In Your Lifestyle: You’re back to the practical aspects of scheduling and routines and getting down to work.  Details fall into place slowly, previous careless mistakes are noticed and corrected, nothing creative begins and nothing comes easy.  A day to be thrifty, practical, reliable and make-like-a-robot from one job to the next. 

Generally compatible Birthday numbers for #1 are: #2, #3, #4 (business), #5 (high energy), #9, #11, #12, #13 (business), #14, #18, #20, #21, #22 (Dynamic Duo), #23, #27, #29, #30, #31. 

If August 1 is your birthday you’re an independent individual, forceful leader and should be the head of your own business or work autonomously in a corporation.  An introspective loner as a child, as an adult, you may feel set apart in group because your assertiveness and unique ideas put you the head of a business or a family.  To find serenity in marriage, you need a supportive, detail conscious, cooperative partner who is comfortable in the background.  When too impulsive, stubborn or egocentric you alienate the people who most want to be on your team.  Life offers you a variety of experiences where your inventiveness solves problems and sparks your ambitions.

In 2011, maintain and secure the things you have.  Be thrifty and practical with money and make a plan or a budget and stick to it.  The projects you began three years ago are stabilizing and showing material accomplishment.   Investments in purchasing or improving homes and property appreciate in time.   Get to the heart of mistakes and correct them.  Be reasonable, dependable, willing to work at a steady pace and put off restlessness or boredom until October brings in a change of pace and the forecast of 2012, a year of action.    

In 2011 wear the color green to attract honest, straight-forward, conscientious associates.. 
Emerald is your gem in 2011.
People whose names begin with the letters D, M and V keep you balanced in 2011
Thursday is your lucky day of the week in 2011

Your 2011 lottery numbers are
: 2, 8, 10, 17, 22,  28.

Celebrities born on August 1 are: Ashley Angel (Singer), Tempestt Bledsoe (Actor), William Clark (Explorer/Meriwether-Clark), Coolio (Rapper), Robert Cray (Musician), Yvonne DeCarlo (Actor), Dom DeLuise (Comedian), Joe Elliott (Heavy Metal Vocalist), Jerry Garcia (Rocker/”Grateful Dead”), Giancarlo Giannini (Actor), Geoffrey Holder (Dancer), Francis Scott Key (Composer/US National Anthem/”Star Spangled Banner“), Meir Kahane (Founder Jewish Defense League), Jack Kramer (Tennis Star), Tom Leykis (American Radio Personality), Nancy Lopez (Pro Golfer), John F Mahoney (Developed Penicillin Treatment for Syphilis), Herman Melville (Author/”Moby Dick”), Yves Saint-Laurent (Fashion Designer).

July 23 musing how today Obama and Boehmer, Republicans-Tea-Partiests and Democrats, “The Battling Bickersons” are “keeping things very secretive” – yesterday’s #7 prediction for today.   A #7 Day makes people reflect, meditate, study, research and try to perfect projects and plans alone.  As a group, nothing can be changed or expanded…They can’t work as a team – I doubt that communications in meetings are revealing…Everyone is looking for answers from a “higher source” = It’s a #7 “keep your thoughts to yourself” World-Wide Day and the debt-ceiling-solvers will make headway tomorrow, a #8 “problem-solving and power-plays revealed” World-Wide Day.  For now, I’m keeping my musing to myself and asking a “higher-source” to make sure my social security check arrives on August 3.  That’s the blog and here come the forecasts…

You’re inclined to magnify your joys and sorrows and have a talent for the arts and the stage.  Real estate investments payoff, you work into old age and your busy lifestyle is balanced with practicality and dreaming.  

In 2011, the focus is on finances, business, practical problem-solving and accomplishments  You’ll need strength, courage, stamina, discipline and willingness to take on more responsibility.  Energy level is high but worry and physical stress may effect your health if you don’t allow sufficient time for rest and to keep a broad perspective.  Job advancements and inheritances are possible along with added pressures.  Plan, think, stay active: If you’ve paved the way for the past seven years, this is your payoff year.

Cover of Win the Lottery!

July 22 musing how yesterday’s #6 prediction of “adjustments made” apply to Republican House Speaker, John Boehmer’s talks with President Obama.  They made adjustments that near the deal on spending cuts and the tax code overhaul.  A # 6 day aims for balance and they are doing a balancing-act by keeping the Republicans from derailing talks and the democrats from acting-out their anger at being excluded.  By keeping things very secretive—the prediction for tomorrow – a #7 “keep your thoughts to yourself” #7 World-Wide Day, they will make headway. 
A #6 Day Domestic issue that may concern you and me = the consumer, the new Federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is open to take and process credit card complaints on the net.  Domestic news that rates a ho-hum…Carla Bruni is unhappy being photographed while pregnant, Arnold Schwarzenegger refuses to pay Maria Shriver spousal support or lawyers fees in their dicorce settlement and Marc Anthony is not taking the divorce well at all.  I don’t muse #6 domestic issue days with gusto = too much real work to do for a muser!  It’s time to clean the house, go marketing and take Maggie to the dog groomer. That’s the blog and here come the forecasts…       

…July 23, 2011…a #7 hidden elements breed future disappointments World-Wide Day when people keep their thoughts to themselves, the stock market improves, the cities are unsettled and irritated, committees are analyzing to iron out fine points of agreements.  Water and nautical activity, inventions and farmers noted, mining stocks and commodities should be in the news.   In your lifestyle: You’re off to a slow start…It’s hard to get into action and there are things to think about.  You go over past mistakes – reflect and perfect – future plans are made.  Listen to your intuition and let the dust settle before doing anything.  You may feel unsociable, uncomfortable with manual labor and a bit of a loner, but to use this day wisely, read, study, investigate – get your thoughts together and you’ll make good decisions tomorrow. 

Generally compatible Birthday numbers for Master Number #23 are: #1 (business), #3 (ideas and activity), #4 (opposites balance), #6 (domestic), #8 (dynamic duo), #9, #10, #12, #13, #15, #17 (lucky), #18, #19, #21, #22, #24, #26, #27, #28, #30, #31.  

If July 23 is your birthday, Although sensitive and restless in youth, mid-life you are “all things to all people” and are welcomed by all classes and types.  You are sociable, self-sufficient, make the best of everything and are a fine companion.  However, you like challenges and adventure and need freedom to follow your curiosity and enthusiasms.  You’re a fine diagnostician in medicine and when judging people and opportunities.  With your physical agility, clever, quick mind and communications talent, life won’t be dull and can be domestically and financially comfortable.

In 2011, it’s best to be questioning and investigative and do not accept anything at face value.  Put commercial ambitions and changes aside to perfect your skills, ideas and projects.  Be patient and take time to analyze…you’re due for settlements and whatever you need will come to you.  Romance is in the air, delays are to your advantage and all forms of communications should be lucky.  Maintain your poise and temper.  Understand that in October you gain more control and in time your goals and ambitions are realized. 

In 2011 wear the color purple to attract intelligent, thoughtful, meticulous associates. 
Amethyst is your gem in 2011.
People whose names begin with the letters G, P and Y are too critical and fussy in 2011
Saturday is your lucky day of the week in 2011

Your 2011 lottery numbers are
: 2, 5, 7, 16, 23, 25.

Compatibility of #17 & #1 Birthdays & May 17 Birthday Numerology Predictions

May 16, 2011

Born on the 17th and on the 1st, you are individualistic powerhouses – the #17 has aspiration and the #1 has inspiration – together you both explode!   Both are ambitious, active, aggressive leaders who are used to making their own decisions and assume responsibility for progress and so, the rivalry and need for control of both birthdays make this an undesirable combination in business, love and marriage.

If May 17 is your birthday, your creative ideas, ability to focus and gain authority and opportunities to make yourself invaluable to people of money and power direct your career choices to the world of finance and banking.  In fact, you do well as the head of any large undertaking as long as you don’t have to be concerned about the petty details.  You require higher eduction or time spent developing a specialty to maintain your self-assurance, self-esteem and emotional control and, you are a ‘seeker’…always want to see the proof of spiritual and metaphysical matters.  Throughout your lifetime, you aim to be proud of your home and family, have compassion for others and have hope, faith and courage in the face of difficulties.

In 2011 expect good news and/or to meet a very important person in your future.  Your talents, business strengths and consideration of family responsibilities are tested by the people and experiences you meet.  You have courage, stamina, ability and perseverance: Maintain your self-confidence, be decisive, refuse to take things at face value, investigate and then aim for the top.  In September 2011, your tree of life bears fruit!    

In 2011 wear the color mauve to attract efficient, shrewd, companions and associates.               
Diamond is your gem in 2011.
People whose names begin with the letters H, Q and Z are competitors in  2011.

As the worldwide economy sways, customs should readjust – Ya’ think?   For a while it made sense to think that dollars spent like pennies.   Tipping dollars – rounding off percentage amounts – ignoring the pennies…leaving a bit more than double the tax tip at a cafe or minimum twenty percent tip at a fancy eatery made your presence smell sweet.   That was common practice then. 

Have you readjusted?  Do you do the same thing now?  Will an unpleasant odor linger after you’re gone if you readjust tipping habits?

Servers are memory savants when it comes to putting face and tip together.  Can you halve your tip to fifty cents a round at the neighborhood pub?  Nah, don’t think!   Although it’s senseless to leave a dollar each time the bartender puts a $2.00 beer in front of you, ya’ gotta’ do it.    If you don’t want to be too noticed – verbally embarrassed – or be ignored when you need something, don’t attempt to readjust your tipping habits to the changed worldwide economy with waiters, waitresses, bartenders and taxi drivers:  They’re underpaid intentionally and taxed on minimum wage because tips are considered by employers and the IRS to be salary.  Tips are expected for good reason.  You’re sure to get this information loud and clear if you alter their accustomed tipping practice next taxi ride or visit to a pub or eatery.
 
However, there’s reason to spend a dollar as if it was one hundred pennies.  Remember that with only 99 cents you cannot get on a bus that costs a dollar. so, it’s not okay to round off a percentage tip to the nearest dollar.  You may need that penny or two the next day for another tip. 

You do leave an unpleasant scent that is long remembered by food and beverage servers, if you do not leave the accustomed – anticipated – expected tip.  However, servers have sensitive sniffers; you leave the same evil odor when you foolishly over-tip.

Can customs readjust because petty-cash is king – cents are no longer the inferior number card…and, in a few situations the expected gratuity ” to insure promptness” is the foolish jester who makes no sense?   Reasons for tipping – like an extra gratuity for services that fulfill the minimum job requirements should be reevaluated.  With the many scale-downs that are in process as we readjust to less income and depleted home security,  let’s be sure we use common sense and watch our pennies. 

Sensible, penny changes when purchasing “extras”,  can bring on the sweet smell of budgeting success.

LET THE “GOOD TEARS” IN…BOYLE MAGIC

June 17, 2009

There’s a stock market slump, prices higher at the pump and my throat’s got a lump!  It’s a “bad tears” day and I’m gonna’ put these droplets in reverse.   Gonna’ listen to a Susan Boyle video, let the “good tears” roll and release magical moments.

There are tears of joy that go on automatic when Scotland’s most famous spinster, Susan Boyle lilts of promise and dreams her dream…and I remember repeated tear sightings when obese and single, Kate Smith sang, “God Bless America”  with the USA at war, in the 1940’s.  Skinny Sinatra’s, “New York, New York” brings back, “my old neighborhood” tears and matronly Ethel Merman’s,  “:Everything’s Comin’ Up Roses” is a lifter that evokes “good tears.”  When the blues are catching, and dreams are touching there’s nothing like a good cry. 

Slow droplets on the face grow dreams of promise .  A dream is magical soil that produces blossoms in daylight. .  In times of emotional reactions to public crisis, it seems that unusually uplifting performers and unconditionally inspiring songs appear that change an emotional down-slump into a visual up-bump.

Broad figured women, Susan Boyle and Kate Smith are beauties who are attractive to the heart.  Kate Smith suffered sweet indignities late in her career.  Before a hockey game, fans yelled with love, “it can’t begin til the fat lady sings.”   On Susan Boyle’s initial performance on “Britain’s Got Talent”, she was ridiculed and that indignity turned into a public love affair too.  Ti’s said, “What you see is what you get.”   Bring on the “bad tears” ’cause you can’t believe everything you see.  Now, bring on the “good tears”, ’cause you often get more than you imagine. 

With my “bad tears” in reverse, I realize It’s not how you look, it’s the way that you do it in these teary times.  So, let the good tears roll-in from dreams and belief in America…with them come the the magical moments.

NEWSY TIDBITS: CARRADINE, PALIN, BOYLE, SOTOMAYOR, AMA AND MORE

June 15, 2009

This numerologists #5 “cant focus on one thing ’cause I bore easily” Personal Day and I’m a butterfly…going from one newsy tidbit to another.  There’s little to still my concern over the economy or the Health Care Bill or Dick Cheney’s hopes for a terrorist attack to fulfill his prophecy.  So, I’m scanning…

Still overwhelmed, Susan Boyle took the Britain’s Got Talent tour and lasted two performances and took a “time-out” to rest.  She’s gonna’ do well recording and should listen to her body and emotions and leave the personal appearances to promoting her albums.

There’s more to be learned about deviant sex from stories about David Carradine’s death than I’ve discovered in 76 years of curiosity.

The Health Care Reform Bill is a “biggie” for Obama and he’s courting the thumbs-down AMA with vigor.  Tidbits today indicate that the AMA may have support for certain kinds of public plans….possibly federally chartered co-ops.  The AMA strong opposition is to any plan that mandates physicians participation.  There’s gonna’ be lots to barter before we see affordable health care.

…after sincere checking, there’s nary a tidbit – nothing said about ailing Patrick Swayze and Farah Fawcett.

The GOP is having a field day with the Sotomayor Supreme Court appointment…they refusing to budge siting “too many unanswered questions.”  Sotomayor had 36 days to get her act together – 70 days is average – and she’s ready and willing to reply tout suite.  So, GOP…ask the questions faster so she can stop running from questioner to questioner – get into a chair – sitting on the bench – which will put her in motion.

And Palin is beefing-up her accusations – ranting, hogging the camera while slamming David Letterman – that’s good!  She’s looking even more foolish and upped his ratings.

Multi-tasking-multi interest rules!  There;s little to sink my teeth into…It’s not an in-depth day for news as the stock market slows down to triple-digit sell-offs after the upswing.  Iran is more problematic and needs watching.   Although oil costs at the pump and job losses are rising, consumer confidence is beefing-up.  Maybe it’s my time for a #5 shopping adventure!

ANTI-SEMITISM, ANTI-PALIN, ANTI-PROBLEMS, AUNTIE MAME

June 12, 2009

Dancing as fast as I can…running away – while acknowledging increased anti-semitism and becoming more and more anti-Palin and wishing I was Auntie Mame.  There’s too much going on in the economy to cope with…who needs more?  There are enough vipers slithering around banks and in the stock market.  This week, rattling my concerns… 

…the bad-mouth old preacher from Chicago and the old gun-totin’ Nazi committing murder in DC and old-news Sarah Palin’s latest bid for media attention with outrage at Dave Letterman’s bad judgment joke about her bad judgment daughter – she loved the SNL bad taste jokes when she could orchestrate and use the publicity…there are little day-to-day problems and now there are larger broad-scoped issues…I wanna’ be Auntie Mame ’cause she would keep her classy, cool and take off for Pago-Pago or the South of France to uncoil and meet the snakes head-on, on her turf…I’m…

…too angry – I’d hiss and miss – so, goin’ finshin’ to coil-up, release my venom and dance back tomorrow.
