Book of the Month

Guilty Pleasures

by Laurell K. Hamilton

I know I’m a little late to the trend, but I’m loving the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series. Written by Laurell K. Hamilton, they are early urban fantasy-mystery books that started in 1993 and follow twenty-something Blake, a legal vampire executioner and zombie raiser.

Guilty Pleasures, the first book, finds Blake blackmailed by the Master of the City into investigating the murders of several vampires. Blake, who is known as “The Executioner” by the vampires due to her many successful kills, is forced to cooperate with the sexy and mysterious Jean-Claude, the vampire owner of the male strip club Guilty Pleasures. Yes, that sounds like a romance, but the primary plot line is that of a gritty, fast-paced mystery. This is the kind of book you plan your weekend around so you won’t get interrupted until you find out who the culprit is.

(On a side note, I’m happy to say our in-store copy has a what I like to think of as the ‘freaky instruments’ version of the cover, featuring a faintly disturbing picture of what appears to be a drill bit. While those covers definitely get farther along the frightening scale [saw blades, forceps, straight razors], my favorite so far is the cover of Circus of the Damned which features, ahem, a fork. Yep. A scary fork. Whoever thought that one up...well, you certainly made my day.)

The series is still running (twenty-five books not counting novellas and comic book adaptations). Though I haven’t finished it yet, I’m loving how Blake and the plot arcs evolve, getting sexier and darker to the point that I had to take a breather from the series after a particularly devastating one (I’m looking at you, Obsidian Butterfly). Blake is a capable, no-nonsense heroine with a troubled moral center and Hamilton does a great job writing a book you can’t put down.

So if you’re looking for the grown-up version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or just a book that will leaving you reeling and breathless, Guilty Pleasures is right up your alley. But watch out, it might be armed with a scary fork.

Herb of the Month

Linden

Linden is a fantastic herb to destress. It blooms in Minnesota in July or August, depending on the climate. The flower is traditionally used to relax and calm people. It is traditionally associated with heart health and nervous system issues like anxiety. Keeping cool in stressful times is another great way to use herb teas, and they can even help avoid or manage high blood pressure issues.

Oil of the Month

Orange

A sunny little addition to anyone’s home orange essential oil (orange EO) has so many uses! It brightens the day of those who smell it and can be used not only to uplift moods and spirits, but cleans as well.Not interested in cleaning today? That’s ok, add a few drops to a favorite unscented lotion, perhaps in combination with peppermint as a morning pick me up, or with a little clove EO for a spicier blend.

Stone of the Month

Citrine

Stone of Sucess, Citirine boosts positivity and expands self confidence, enthusiasm, and overall happiness. This stone is said to encapsulate the power of the Sun, and will dispell the darkness, leaving you feeling bright and light!

Statue of the Month

Ganesha

Ganesha is a jovial Remover of Obstacles. Known for having the head of an elephant, some stories say that Ganesha was created from Shiva's laughter. Residing in the Root Chakra, Ganesha helps to support and guide all the other chakras. Use this God of New Beginnings to clear your path to expanding in joyous ways, in all aspects of life!

Talisman of the Month

Talisman For Good Luck

The Talisman for Good Luck is based on two designs from the Key of Solomon, the preeminent grimoire of talismanic magick. One side depicts a hexagram design, which is Jupiterian in nature and is meant to help one attain honor and dignities. The opposite side is a traditional design for a magick circle of protection.

This month in Astrology...

Most of June belongs to the playful and mentally stimulating air sign of Gemini, ruled by Mercury, the messenger with winged feet who completes an orbit around the Sun every 88 days. The quick-witted magical fuels of Gemini and Mercury become available when we approach each moment with curiosity, and invoke energies of innocent perception in our adventures. Get out and get flirtatious with more aspects of this beautiful life. Joy is an important resource for facing the hurdles on our journeys, so get it while the gettin’s good.

Venus is our bright morning star (go see!), who’s in an outgoing, month-long, beauty-activating semi-square with the Sun (that only happens once every 1.6 years). The goddess of love moves into her sensory-pleasuring, earthy home of Taurus on the 6th, and the beauty of this mysterious life will be undeniable for most of June. Get brave and creative with your colors this month.

The fiery Sagittarius Full Moon on the 9th brings a wave of expansive, idealistic connectedness, but also highlights questions of integrity regarding long-term goals and responsibilities. We’re in a time of questioning old social contracts and power concepts that deserve to be re-envisioned. Let go of big-picture visions that no longer serve.

The Sun moves into emotional Cancer with a low-key Summer Solstice on the 20th. The New Moon in Cancer on the 23rd is a great time to nurture seeds of self-acceptance and belonging. Honor your roots, and the sacred waters that nourish all life. Faith in the human family isn’t always easy to conjure. Choose now to grow more of it, and to find out more about how your role in this larger family is an essential one.
