10-03-11-Update : & My Mind Is Blown

Sometimes when an astrologer goes MIA it's because life caught up with her. That's what happened to me. I'm sharing details of my life and how astrology explains some of the situations.


October 06, 2011, 1pm PDT/4pmEDT, Blog Talk Radio.

1WW-10-06-11: For the chat log and links mentioned on the pod cast.

Come with your questions on the phone or from the chat room!

10-11-11 DOD New England Tour

Ok this is not a tutorial video but a call to an adventure. I’m coming out to New England the end of October to the middle of November. If you want to be part of the Day of the Dead New England Tour, get a discount or free polymer clay lessons, then you could be a driver, a host or hostess, or just come to a workshop toss some money into the hat and get a grip on your clay. More details to follow when they are figured out.


10-11-11 DOD Astro New England Tour

Follow up to “& my mind is blown”. The saga continues. The father of my 3rd born son is flying me out to Nantucket. I'll be there from the end of October to the middle of November, 2011. It is a full moon in Aries right now, conjunct my North Node. I have a stellium in the 8th house and Jupiter in Capricorn in my first house. I figure “Polymer Clay Tour!”. So I start the ball rolling to do my usual “me as a baton in a relay race” with volunteers driving and giving me 3 hots and a cot. Then I thought “Astrology Tour!”. So this is the video that encourages my astrology subscribers to be part of the “Day of the Dead Polymer Clay and Astrology Tour in New England”.



10-13-11 DOD Tour Date: Nov. 5, 2011

Nov. 5, 2011, Saturday, at Julie’s home in Methuen, MA, outside of Boston. Start time to be decided and shared in a future update video.

BYO-Clay, Tools, & Food.

Merrie has already requested “Flowers” as one of the topics for the workshop. I want to show you how to make leopard spot cane. Some of you might want to get some sculpting tips.

I teach like a cook in a short order diner: “What’ll it be?” What do you want help with?

I use the basic dozen clay colors: black, white, translucent, pearl, red, blue, yellow, burnt umber, raw sienna, silver, gold, and copper.

Check my website, norajean dot com, for the page suggesting clay colors, tools, and other supplies. But if you’ve been to a work shop you know what tools you like to bring.



Day of the Dead New England Tour

  Workshop November 5, 2011, Methuen, MA

Sign up now!


I will be in MA, PA, and NY from 10/27/11 through 11/20/11. Events for the "Day of the Dead New England Tour" will be at the top of the home page until I return to San Francisco, CA.

While I'm on the road,, I will be adding updates on my two blogs: AstroStone Blog for astrological observations & Blog2 for everything else.


10-16-11: I’ll be in the Philadelphia, PA, area the week end of the November 12th and the 13th. This is video is a “shout out” to the ClayMates in the Philadelphia area who want to help me organize a work shop. I’ve contacted the Philadelphia Polymer Clay Guild on 10/16/11 running the idea past them. It might not be enough advanced notice for a guild. A ClayMate who has a big living room or basement, who is willing to be the hostess of a workshop with me, let clayers she doesn’t know into her home for an afternoon, will receive a cut of the proceeds. Make a comment below the video on YouTube or email me here.  Let’s make this happen.
