Nicola Adams

Throwing Hard Punches If you have never heard of Nicola Adams OBE, MBE it is about time you did. This lady is nothing less than a Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Aquarius type of gal! A total one off, original in blood and bone! Some might consider her borderline eccentric, an “in your face” sportswoman who throws hard punches; yet Nicola has done more than beat numerous adversaries in the boxing ring; when it comes to her private life, she is certainly unafraid to stand up to trolls. A while back, truckloads of them berated her masculine appearance, the fact that she was “too black” and slated her relationship with gorgeous beauty blogger girlfriend, Ella Baig. Nicola told the Express “she was just not having it!” when it came to trolls! Who can blame her, and who could expect less from the very first female boxer to ever win a Gold Medal at the Olympics?

Standing in Good Stead A beneficial Leo influence gifts this lady with a huge aura and a “don't mess with me” disposition. Her astounding physical shape, super vitality and “go for it” attitude stands her in good stead in all circumstances, even the worst. Nicola has had her fair share of trauma. She told the Telegraph that two decades ago, when she began her boxing career, the standard put down was "Shouldn't you be in the kitchen?".

“.....I was the only girl in the girl in the gym. It's a different world now." Yes indeed, Nicola once lived in a very different world to that of boxing forays and international championships. Perhaps an innate desire to hit out at the “bad guys” of life started in childhood. She told the Mirror she wanted to “kill her dad” because he was abusive to her and her mum; neither of them were allowed to have friends or go out.

only to be expected now and then. Yet, she stood up to her dad and went on to throw more than an efficient punch at her adversaries in the ring; in fact she won more times than even the Nay Sayers bargained for. After winning the Commonwealth, European and World titles and suffering more than one injury, Nicola thought it might be time to retire. As brave as she was, facing the world without her beloved boxing ring to enrich her soul was somewhat daunting. She told the Telegraph "Luckily I've got a good set of friends and family that have been here to support me, not just now, but all through my career, to help with any questions I have, because it can be daunting, because all you're doing is training and competing and then you come out the other side."

"He’d get violent with both of us. Because I have ADHD, when I was younger I was very hyperactive, so it was very, very hard for me to keep still, especially when he was watching TV," Scorpio Style Nicola dealt with the problem in strictly Scorpio style; that wise water sign knows that the world has an underbelly and that a “dark night of the soul” is Credit: Instagram @NicolaAdams


Those “Get Real” Vibes Mr. Saturn is certainly a friend. That good old ringed planet helps her get real. In fact, she got more than real when she became an ambassador for Barclays “Life skills" programme, which provides free online career advice for adults "It was something I was ready for at the time because I'd already been talking about what I was going to do next, but didn't expect it to happen so quickly."

"Ultimately Though I Was Happy!” Credit: BBC

Well, she should be happy, there is so much to be proud of! She formed the first "Strictly Come Dancing" partnership that delighted the LGBT audience! Yet again, friendly Leo and down to earth Saturn ensured her “9.5 on the Richter scale” charisma won the day.” In fact, Nicola has “won many a day”; a gypsy seer might even say a lucky star shines upon her. For example, she was the first English amateur champion in 2003, and was awarded a Silver Medal at the 2007 European Championship in Denmark; little holds her back. Super Sonic Planetary Combos Dare we say that an exciting life continues to await her. Why? Because even if things get difficult, some supersonic planetary combo will always pop up to ease her load. Perhaps, as she hits middle age, she will even discover that she is on a spiritual mission, Pluto tells us that she will certainly be ready to tread the "light fantastic". In any event, life will take her further down the road than she could ever have imagined going “way back when!” Nicola was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2013 New Year Honours for services to boxing and Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE). Who could have ever imagined that an abused child would not only wish upon a star but claim it as her own?

Autumn Mood

Autumn is usually the season when we start to hibernate a little, cosy down as the evenings draw in and spend more time indoors. After all the restrictions of the past year, fortunately made bearable by some gorgeous weather, many of us are anticipating the dark nights of autumn and the prospect of further lockdowns with dread. How can we boost our autumn mood? What are your expectations of autumn, the factors that have shaped your existing mindset? For some it's their favourite season; the thought of wrapping up warm, kicking through falling leaves on a woodland walk, mugs of hot chocolate, board games around a fire. For others it's a gloomy, miserable season filled with dark days of nothing to look forward to. How do you feel? Remember that your childhood memories and experiences don't need to be replicated as you move into adulthood. Now you can make your own choices and use your ability to take control of your environment. Why not choose to boost your autumn mood?


As the days become shorter our melatonin and seratonin levels are affected. This is where dog walkers have a distinct advantage, as they often take their dogs for regular walks, whatever the weather. Try to emulate the dog walker and get outside, even for short breaks, so that you experience some daylight, improve your seratonin levels and hence your mood. Keep in touch with close friends and family so that you're able to talk if you're feeling down, in need of some light relief or need a little human contact in your life. Share your fears and concerns, especially in this present climate and agree to be supportive of each other. It often helps to know you're not alone and that others are thinking of you. Commit to achieving one positive experience, success or achievement each day, even if it's simply washing your hair, tidying your sock drawer, walking to the corner shop. Only you know how significant each result is! Share your good news and congratulate each other. Our diet often changes as the winter months approach. People relish the idea of a salad less when it's cold and dark, often preferring more comforting food like soups, casseroles and stews. Try to keep to a healthy diet and include all the colours of autumn, the vegetables and berries that are seasonal at this time of year. You could prepare something that cooks slowly, snuggle into a warm coat and take a walk, knowing you'll be returning home to a delicious meal. Focus on making home more cosy and comforting than it's perhaps been over the summer months. Warm fabrics, colours and fragrances can boost your autumn mood by adding brightness to your home. Red, gold, bronze, silver used for cushions, throws, prints can brighten a room. Unique items can often be sourced locally at markets and craft fairs. Scented candles can improve the atmosphere and add welcome fragrance to a room. Lighting is important over the darker months. Overhead lighting can be quite harsh, so think about wall lights or small amps which offer mood-enhancing ways to illuminate your room. Or candles, used safely, can add an attractive glow. Socialising often requires more thought, especially at the moment, with so many changing restrictions. Online socialising is a lifeline for those with internet access, providing invaluable ways to keep in touch with friends and family. Groups of friends have found ingenious ways to entertain each other, using quiz nights, book clubs, recipe sampling, all done online. And it's good to have something to look forward to.


Online classes and training could be a good use of your time over autumn, furthering your education, giving you something extra to add to your CV and improving your job chances if you're in the market for a new career. Autumn is a good time to forward-plan for Christmas, making your Christmas cakes and puddings. Or you could spend hours hand-making personalised Christmas cards and gifts, utilising your skills in crafts, painting, knitting, handiwork. Children often delight in getting involved with glitter and glue! Working from home is an increasingly familiar option, but autumn may become a time when you start to feel like a pit pony, entering your home office and hardly ever emerging in daylight; often there's little else to do! Boost your autumn mood by scheduling regular breaks, for food, to phone a friend for a pleasant chat, to go outside and stretch your legs. Your work will thank you as breaks have been found to improve productivity upon return. Add some home treats, things that you might not do during typical summer months. Allow time for a thirty-minute bath with candles, plenty of bubbles and warm towels, go through your photographs or music back catalogue and laugh or cry at the memories they evoke. A little planning can help to boost your autumn mood and ensure that you remain healthy, take good care of yourself and have positive things in your life that support you and yours both mentally and physically.

Friends or Family..?

The saying, we choose our friends but not our family, often causes a wry laugh. But, on reflection, those relationships are rather different. Do our friends typically see us having a 'bad hair day' or have to be constantly reminded to tidy their rooms, put their damp towels in the laundry basket or fix a broken shelf? Maybe they do occasionally, but it's unlikely to be a regular occurrence. They don't see us grumpily returning home after a tough day at work or at those times when we're truly out of sorts. We usually modify our behaviour and brighten up when we see our friends, even when we're at our worst. There's no way we're likely to snap at them in the way we would with family members. We know they could walk away and call time on our relationship. And who'd blame them if our inconsiderate behaviour happened too often! So, our friends can be good at nudging us from being too maudlin. We may share in-depth analysis of our lousy job, relationship or situation, but there often comes a time when we realise that we have to rein it in and start to pay attention to them too. A friendship may be temporarily one-sided during tough times but there comes a point where we have to try to recover a little from being down, negative or repetitive, and that's no bad thing. And then there's the fun element. A 2020 survey of 400 people for the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that 68% of the time we spend with friends is doing fun things, like visiting restaurants, bars, concerts, participating in sports, whereas the figure for family is only 28%.


Do we need to reflect on how we allocate the time we spend with family? Yes, chores and essential maintenance does need to be done but is there some way we could make doing them more enjoyable? Washing, ironing, cleaning are important, but could they be undertaken in a more positive, upbeat way, starting by a change in perspective, where we remember to appreciate our good fortune in having a home to clean, a garden to tend, nice clothes to launder. How many people would be overjoyed to be in our position? Remember the excitement you felt when you moved into your first new home, the satisfaction of polishing 'your' windows or dusting the furniture you'd recently chosen and had delivered, the joy of keeping everywhere fresh and tidy, walking through your front door and smiling with pride. How quickly does that mindset change! Another 2020 survey of 2000 adults by a vitamin company has revealed that we spend an hour a day on basic chores like washing up, laundry, tidying, things we're highly unlikely to do with friends, and certainly not on a regular basis. So, it's no wonder that we'd rather be with friends than family! But if we elevate those dull, repetitive tasks by introducing some fun, gratitude and satisfaction for a job well done it allows for a more positive approach. Start to notice how you communicate in your relationship with your partner or family, compared to when you're with friends. It can be all too easy for family interactions to drift into a mundane daily routine where you share updates and chores rather than communicate on any meaningful level, especially during busy or stressful periods. When you're tired and preoccupied, experiencing low energy levels, try to still remember to be polite, thoughtful and respectful towards each other, smiling and touching affectionately as you pass by. Inject humour into situations and maintain channels of communication where you're genuinely interested in each other, following up on the previous day's news, noticing any change in demeanour, demonstrating that you're keen to spend time together.


The most tedious tasks were voted in the survey as ironing, cleaning and food shopping, with only 3% saying they enjoyed the day-to-day routine. But these tasks can be transformed by sharing them and perhaps including a treat or reward on completion, especially if children are involved. You could share the load in a motivational way, as in, 'you do this while I do that' or introduce a fun element by singing or dancing as you all work. Even a little competition could help to potentially lift the mood. By ensuring that you have positive exchanges with partners and children, perhaps through play and interesting, supportive conversations, you enjoy more pleasant relationships and allow even the day-to-day stuff to be a fulfilling and meaningful part of your life. That way, chores can become a more positive investment in your daily quality of life.

A stalled dream will be revived on the 29th; stay focused on this glorious vision. On the 30th, the Lunar Eclipse will prompt you to relocate to a livelier neighbourhood.


Good Nights Sleep

Now the clocks have gone back for Autumn, this could be the ideal opportunity to reset your sleep habits for the months ahead and beyond. Your health and happiness is linked to getting a good nights sleep and with the current worries and stress of the world, a restful nights sleep can sometimes be difficult to achieve. Easing you into a deep sleep, Dodow is the sleep aid device that sits on your bedside table, which enables the brain to switch off from outside thoughts. Presenting a long-term, natural solution to insomnia, the Dodow uses cardiac coherence, a technique back with over 10,000 scientific research, to soothe your body and mind to a deeply relaxed state in less than 5 minutes. Used by Air Force fighter pilots to keep their cool, cardiac coherence slows down your heart rhythm pattern to a lower frequency, helping you to calm down and control your emotions more easily.


Tony asks “My ex keeps trying to get back in contact with me, but I'm really on the fence about letting him back into my life..?” Tony is a Piscean with Venus and Jupiter in earth signs linking beautifully with each other. He is likely to be extremely charismatic, generous and giving and his ex could deeply regret the break-up. Pisceans are romantic but no relationship, whether friendship or in romance can fulfil all the Piscean’s emotional needs. Tony is right to take this chance to think about how he really feels. Loneliness can make the prospect of getting back together again more attractive. With Uranus close to Venus as the year ends, Tony needs stimulation, excitement and change. If he does invite his ex back into his life, it’s unlikely to be on the same terms as before. With Uranus nothing is predictable. It will be fun and exhilarating but whether or not any arrangement Tony makes at the moment is permanent, only time will tell.

Cara asks “I've been putting a lot of time and effort into searching for jobs, but nothing is coming my way. Is there anything I can do spiritually to improve my luck? Leo is strong in Cara’s chart and as much as she is determined, she will also be fighting hard to maintain her self-esteem while job-hunting. Cara isn’t just looking for any job. She is searching for a career in a specific field that will make her feel fulfilled. It might be hard to find her ideal job in this tough economic climate. With Neptune active in her chart now, Cara might think about seeking a position at a hospital, care home or nursery. Volunteering at an animal shelter or giving her time to help a non-profit organisation could lift her spirits and the Universe has a way of rewarding good deeds.


Vegan News

Not suitable for Vegans!

Nando's is launching its first-ever plant-based meat alternative

The Great Imitator has been designed to taste just like its signature PERi-PERi chicken breast fillet but is made entirely from pea protein. The plant-based chicken is served as four strips grilled to order and are available as part of the Burgers, Pittas and Wraps menu at the restaurant with customers able to choose their desired level of spice as they would with their usual Nando’s order. Nando’s is also launching a new vegan-friendly starter in the form of Sweet Potato Wedges with Garlic PERinaise with 10p from each purchase going to Nando’s Fighting Marlia. Not suitable for vegans. According to Nando’s, The Great Imitator is aimed at flexitarians who want to cut back on their meat intake but don’t want to compromise on taste. Although the new menu item swaps out Nando’s lightly spiced mayonnaise for its Vegan PERi-naise and contains no other animal ingredients, sadly the new plant-based product is prepared on the same grills as the company’s chicken and is therefore not suitable for vegans.

Asda Becomes the First to Launch Ambient Vegan Aisle Asda has become the first UK supermarket to launch a vegan destination in store with two bays entirely dedicated to plant-based products. With research showing that 17% of UK households are reducing their meat intake or following a plant-based diet, Asda will launch over 100 new lines, with market-leading prices across a dedicated vegan area. With searches for vegan lines up 275% since 2019 on asda.com, the retailer has invested in launching vegan aisles across 359 Asda’s stores which will consist of one bay of savoury products including proteins, cooking sauces and condiments, and one bay of snacks and sweet lines. The 104 new products launching will include Asda own label meal pots, as well as a number of well-loved brands such as Mrs Crimbles, Vego, two exclusive Galaxy flavours, and an exclusive new Falafel Mix from Bosh. mealsAsda will become the first UK supermarket to launch a vegan destination in store with two bays entirely dedicated to plant-based products. McDonald’s is reportedly launching vegan burgers in the UK The exciting news has been revealed by Instagram account Vegan Food, who shared an image of Maccies’ reported new product featuring a Beyond Meat burger patty. The apparent marketing flyer from McDonald’s describes its new vegan burger, which features a patty from Beyond Meat as ‘100% McDonald’s taste, 0% meat’. The material further reads that ‘everyone should enjoy a delicious burger without compromising on taste’. According to the food group, the new burger will be vegan certified and will have the patty served in a sesame bun with vegan and a ‘slice of vegan cheese’. While the account has posted the image, it clarified that there has been no official announcement from McDonald’s yet and this image was photographic evidence from insiders.


Simple Tips For Staying Healthy

Staying fit and healthy has never been quite so important as it is right now with the Covid-19 pandemic in full swing. So, how do you go about staying fit and healthy, especially if you can’t go out as much as you might like? Here are our simple tips for staying healthy in 2020 and beyond… Maintain A Healthy Outlook One of the best things you can do for yourself is to maintain a healthy and positive outlook. If you need to, take one day at a time. Break it down into smaller chunks. Whether you’re in a strict lockdown that seems never ending, or just finding life a little overwhelming. Don’t beat yourself up if you have a bad day. Each new day is a new clean slate. What happened the day before is something you can learn from but shouldn’t be what defines the next day. Start fresh every morning, new day brings new hope and opportunities. Whether that’s something as small as eating better, drinking more water, exercising more, smoking less…etc. Even the smallest of achievements is an achievement you should be proud of. For example, i’m really bad at drinking enough water. I could easily go an entire day only having a few sips. However, i set myself a goal every day to drink 2 litres. Some days i hit it, and others i don’t. If i don’t, it’s not a big deal, i just try harder the next day.


Goal Setting I often hear people setting themselves these crazy goals they’ll never reach. You’re just setting yourself up to fail, so why do it? If you set yourself a goal that’s unachievable, you’ll give up before you even begin. It will seem too out of reach so you won’t have the drive to succeed. However, if you set yourself a goal that is reachable, yet still a challenge, when you do reach it, you’ll feel amazing! This feeling of accomplishment will then drive you to keep going and pushing to do better and better. For example, if you’re trying to loose 200 pounds, setting yourself this goal in a month is NOT achievable! However, break it down and try to loose 2 or 3 pounds per week. Or 10 pounds each month. This makes it seem a lot more doable, so you’re more likely to keep going. Being Active Especially for those in stricter lockdown areas, this might seem quite difficult. However, they are plenty of ways you can stay active. It is recommended you try to be active for at least 30 minutes per day. This could be 3 lots of 10 minutes throughout the day, or all in one go. This could be anything from running up and down the stairs for 10 minutes. Or, go out for a walk/run. Dance around your living room. Do some kind of sport if you can. It really doesn’t matter what you do. Just something that will get your heart rate up and leaving you feeling a little puffed.

Eat Nutritious Foods Eating a well-balanced diet is so important. Although it is important to get regular exercise, it’s just as important to be eating well. Your diet should be high in fruits and vegetables as that’s where you’ll get your micronutrients from. Micronutrients being all your vitamins and minerals your body needs to thrive and fight off illnesses.

If you can, you should also limit your meat consumption. Research studies have shown that in just 7 days of removing meat form you diet can reduce cholesterol levels by up to 100 points! We aren’t saying stop completely, however, if you can, try to eat leaner meats such as turkey, chicken, tuna instead. Many people think they need to eat loads of meat to hit their daily protein intake. However, ALL protein actually comes from the earth – vegetation, grass, soil…etc. Animals get all of their protein from the vegetation they eat. We then eat the animal to get our


protein. So in fact, animals are just the middle men when it comes to getting protein. Research has shown that the protein we can get directly from fruits and vegetables is actually a MUCH BETTER source of protein. It’s cleaner, it isn’t packed with the animals hormones and doesn’t cause fat to clog up or veins and arteries. Even olympic athletes and weightlifters have chosen to go meat free. Since changing their diets they’ve found they can – lift heavier, go for longer, run faster, all because they no longer eat meat. Reducing the amount of refined sugar in your diet would also be a great place to start. Again, this doesn’t mean stop altogether. We all love the odd treat or dessert after dinner but perhaps not every night?! Quit Smoking If you are a smoker, now is the best time to stop smoking. Being that the Corona virus is a respiratory disease, do your body a favour and let your lungs breath and begin to heal. Give yourself the best chance to survive the virus, incase you do contract it. Lower Your Alcohol Consumption A glass of red wine with your evening meal is actually meant to be quite beneficial to your body. However, drinking the entire bottle or getting drunk is NOT! Drink in moderation if you do drink alcohol. Sleep Getting a good night sleep is easier said than done for many of us. However, getting a good night sleep is so important. Research shows people who get 8 hours sleep a night have much lower levels of stress and cortisol in their body. ●Turn off all digital devices at least 1 hour before going to bed.

How often do you berate yourself, feel that you've fallen short, not achieved what you set out to do or done as much as others in your orbit? A 2020 survey of 2000 adults by a weight loss company has found that we criticise ourselves six times a week; personally I think that number is on the low side! How many of us talk to ourselves more harshly that we ever would to anyone else, calling ourselves stupid, bad, thick over even the slightest mistake or transgression? The reality is, we may have done something stupid, but it doesn't make us so. And later, when we reflect on what happened, it may have been that we were stressed, distracted, preoccupied or any number of other things. The same survey shows that 80% of us worry about past mistakes, struggle to put the past behind us and often compare ourselves unfavourably with others. It sounds like a very stressful way to live.


Let's consider ways we can improve our perspective and start to feel that we are good enough. Appreciate that others are often wearing their public face as soon as they leave the house. You know yourself that even if you're only going to the shops, chances are you'll change out of your scruffs, apply a little aftershave or lipstick. As do others. They display what they want to be on show.

If you're not achieving what you've set out to do ask yourself why that is. Is it your goal; do you want it enough or are you doing it simply to please others? Could it be that your underlying aim is to make long departed parents or grandparents proud, but it doesn't really inspire you sufficiently or is outside your capabilities. Once you stop to reflect you realise that those relatives would much prefer you to do something that makes you happy. Being your own worst critic could well arise due to living a friend or family member's dream. They may be living vicariously through you and are highly invested in each stage of your progress, feeling free to advise, coach and criticise. They may feel they're being helpful, are offering encouragement, but in reality are pushing you towards the success they've missed out on whilst taking none of the risks or investing in the work.

When we doubt our abilities, feel we're not good enough it impacts on everything we do. Our outlook, perspective, self-belief, enthusiasm levels and decision-making may all be tempered by uncertainty and even fear. This can cause hesitancy and result in us second-guessing every Remember that when we compare decision we need to take. Things that ourselves to others we're not measuring we wouldn't even query when we're in like for like. Each person has their own a more positive frame of mind may well situation, their own story, priorities, become major areas of doubt, ‘should motivations and circumstances that are I/shouldn't I’ dilemmas. Stressful, hidden behind the public persona, energy-sapping and diminishing your most of which we're unlikely to have single-minded focus towards your goals. even the slightest hint of.


Accept that failure and setbacks bring their own lessons and rewards. Any new venture should test and challenge you; that's part of the experience, fun and ultimate satisfaction. Rather than doubt yourself start to value the tough times that push you on your journey as part of an opportunity to learn new skills and make new connections. Allow others onto your 'team'. It doesn't mean that you're not good enough if you have gaps in your knowledge. Knowing where to go to remedy problems and shortfalls is a skill in itself. No one can be an expert in everything, so allow others to contribute their ideas, talents and input and maybe even discover better ways of doing things. Be kind to yourself. Breaks, fun and time off are a great way to recharge your batteries and you may find that you return with new ideas, inspiration and solutions to things that had previously been troubling you. But equally don't allow yourself to languish too long in your comfort zone. If you've been going through a tough time, have a lot going on, then adopting a steady pace might be fine, but staying too long in cruise-control does you no favours. It's good to move away from comfortable sometimes. If you're aiming for a big goal it can be disheartening if things don't come together as you'd hoped. Rather than beating yourself up and telling yourself that you're not good enough why not instead break it down into bite-sized chunks that are more manageable, achievable and set you on the right track? Remember to praise yourself with each stage that you accomplish.
