Re: Reading-insight request

Thank you much for the insight.
I do apologize for not including my birth place and time (for what it is worth I
was born in Doylestown, PA at 6:20pm)
Your information is very correct. (although I have alway been on the heavy side)
I plan on looking into an herbalist – Currently we are tight on money (my
husband’s cancer has reoccured) But I will look into it.
I do already have a 9 year old daughter and now a son that is almost 5 months.
Things will get better I am sure.
I will send my prayer request with a donation.
Thank you again

I posted this exchange here so that people can have a better idea of what kinds of Readings I’m doing. I’m not going to bore them with “Sun Sign Astrology”, by any means!   And, although I do kid around, and seem to have a lot of different ‘things’ going such as my EdsList,  my heart & soul are in my work in helping people!    “Go, and Do Thou Likewise!”

Best Wishes, —–Ed
