I’ve been watching Las Vegas housing trends for 15 years now and it’s a highly unstable market perfect for gamblers. After the recession I moved to Los Angeles and started selling real estate. I worked with a developer who specialized in tear downs that were rebuilt in a modern style and sold for record breaking values per square foot. I see certain trends now as California people and industries are moving to Las Vegas. I can see a potential for similar polarization in the housing market in Las Vegas as it pertains to elite cash buyers vs working class people who rely on financing.

People think that weight gain is a lack of control but it can actually be a mechanism of control. It’s a defense mechanism.

You may be providing for someone yet not in the ways that they need.

We all know that men love women in their 20s. Let’s get real. It’s a vibrant time of life where everyone looks great and wants to have fun. But some of us look better as we get older.

Retrograde Mercury is exactly conjunct Venus. Both are within 8 degrees of the sun which some astrologers consider a “combustion.” That would mean that the energy of the often feared Mercury Retrograde will not be felt, nor will the power of Mercury at all if you believe in the combustion theory. The sun’s energy is too powerful to feel planets this close. There might be an emptiness to communication. A feeling like, “No one gets me why bother.” The same with Venus. Venus is an exciting planet for most. It rules love and beauty. With Venus combust we might feel that our surroundings are less than enchanting. We may feel an emptiness in our hearts too.


The upcoming new moon is in Leo with Venus present. This is all about the solar plexus and heart chakra, while new moons are about manifesting abundance. This seems like a great combination of energies but if you look closer there are some important intricacies to consider when manifesting on August 1st. We need a foundation of the things that give us life and make us whole before we can manifest the beauty that makes life enchanting. August is all about manifesting the most exquisite life we can dream up. This will serve as the foundation for the amount of love and success we can attract in the future.
