Astronomy Alchemy- May 2018
Bringing two of my favorite things together astronomy and wine/spirits for a swirl of alchemy. Most people miss the connection of alchemy in wine and spirits, but it’s at the forefront of what goes into the bottle. Each month I use a tarot deck to channel a message for each sign and pair with a spirit or wine. Blessed be!
Tarot selection for the month: Joie de Vivre Tarot
Aries- (March 21- April 19}
Expect an arrival. This could be in the form of a person or a thing. Either way, it will have an impact on your life. It’s the kind of change that will do you good. In the meantime, go out and have some fun. It’s a great time to meet new people and explore new things. There is a world of opportunities waiting in the wings. Take a peek and see which one feels right. Celebrate all the awesome sauce with a glass or two of La Vieille Ferme Blanc.
Taurus- (April 20- May 20)
Love can the hardest or easiest thing in life. It’s hard to know which will show up. Looks like a little pain is in your heart from a relationship that didn’t work out. When something doesn’t work out, the universe is trying to give you something better. The “idea” of who we think we will end up with can cause pain to last a little bit long. Keep your head up and heart open. A new love journey is about to begin. The Whispering Angel Rosé is where it’s at.
Gemini -(May 21-June 20)
A lot has been on your mind lately. Should you do this or should you do that? If you aren’t sure, take a step back. Be in a state of mind where you simply reflect.

All of it will bring your snapback! Lillet Rosé with a slice of orange will do you just fine.
Cancer – (June 21-July 22)
Everything is not what it appears to be. If you take a deeper look you will see the illusions. Stop comparing yours success to everyone else. While some people appear to be living their best life, it’s all a pile of BS. Anybody can look cool on social media. Continue to focus on what you are doing. Take your time. Follow your intuition. Your focus should not be on what they have and what you lack. The big question is: how do you stick out in a crowd. Get loose with some Grey Goose.

Libra- (September 23- October 22)
A running theme for the month is “solitude”.
