Eyeliner

blog_fasheyeOK, ladies, we’ve seen a little too much of this going on, and it is time to correct this eyeliner “don’t.” Raise your hand—how many of you spend approximately five seconds on your eyeliner in the morning? You apply a line above each eye, a line that’s actually noticeable, a plain old line. If so, you’re probably in the majority of women who think that’s how you apply eyeliner. Unfortunately, that’s not so. I was reminded of this recently when I saw the beautiful makeup that my colleague, Leslie Patrick, was wearing to a holiday party. While her eyes popped, it wasn’t due to a streak of makeup above her lash line. Instead, Patrick applied her eyeliner the way that professional, long-time makeup artists do when they’re working with models and actors—they painstakingly apply tiny strokes of eyeliner to what almost seems like the lash line itself. Initially, it almost looks like you’re under-applying the eyeliner, but trust me, the effect is beautiful, and it is really how eyeliner looks the best (unless you’re going for a purposefully dramatic look). Anything more than this, and you simply look like someone with a line above their eye. Try out this method with a really sharp eyeliner pencil. It doesn’t need to be fancy or expensive, just something simple. And watch—your eyes will pop. Say hello to your eyes, and good-bye to the lines.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
