Georgia Nicols – Astrologer

I love Georgia Nicols. I asked her to do a horoscope for me and she said I just needed to do what I was doing and things would work out. Wow!

Georgia Nicols M.A. is ┬áCanada’s most popular astrologer. A Buddhist, this Vancouver-based astrologer was born in Winnipeg and is now one of the biggest names in stargazing, with international clients and a Web horoscope that is one of the hottest items online.

Georgia writes daily for the National Post, the Victoria Times Colonist, the Vancouver Province, the Edmonton Sun, the Calgary Herald, the Winnipeg Free Press, the London Free Press, the Chicago Sun Times, and the Press Democrat (California).

Her weekly, monthly columns and Special Annual Forecasts appear in Elle Canada, Monday Magazine, the San Francisco Examiner, the Washington (DC) Examiner, The Examiner (Baltimore), the Paris Star, the Beacon Herald, and regional papers in Canada, the United States, and New Zealand.

She makes regular appearances on television (CBC, Vicki Gabereau Show and Studio 4 with Fanny Kiefer) and radio (she is a monthly regular on Hamilton’s Roy Green Show and on Passion, Montreal’s nightly show with Sex therapist Dr. Laurie Betito). She has two degrees and confesses to being a university junkie.

Why did this one-time movie and theatre critic choose this field?

“To help people get a better handle on their lives – plus I find astrology absolutely fascinating.”

Home Hospice

I finished my training last week to work as a hospice volunteer.

For those of of you who don’t know about hospice, hospice provides the opportunity for people who are terminally ill to die at home in the care of their loved ones and friends.

The staff and trained volunteers of the organization that I volunteer with here in Toronto provides and facilitates access to compassionate care for people with life threatening illnesses, offering them support options, honouring their choices and supporting their families and friends.

The Hospice works on a care team model, with the belief that teams of caregivers from different walks of life can best meet the needs of someone who chooses to die at home. A care team often includes spouses or partners, families, friends, neighbours, colleagues, doctors, nurses, personal support workers and volunteers.

The Hospice can help set up the team, provide team members with training and support, and supplement the team with skilled volunteers if required.

Hospice volunteers may do the following:

-care-giving such as helping a person move around, mouth care, bed and personal care
– respite care (giving caregivers a break)
– assist with meal preparation
– provide emotional and spiritual support

The training was 30 hours over a 2 week period and it was very intense in terms of absorbing a lot of information and emotionally.

I’m now waiting to be assigned to my first client and of course I am very nervous. From what I have been told by the other volunteers my life will probably never be the same. This is quite a blessing in my life.
