September Virgo Season!

It’s September 1st! The month of the Virgo. Although the Virgo season started in late August… the September Virgo season kicks off today. I see there are a lot of fellow Virgos out there, because of the response I received on my Facebook.

Ah yes, the Virgo. It’s a very independent zodiac sign. We are fully able to put our intelligence to use and get things done for OURSELVES. We are organized and picky. We exist in the mind. We are loyal, devoted. We are old-fashioned. We love to help others. I could go on and on, but you get the point.

It’s a strong sign, and most Virgos I know… have all the traits. Our weakness is, we can be cold and fussy. Yup. If I work hard, the people around me better work hard too. Ha!

I like being a Virgo. I have all the traits. Maybe the one thing I dislike is over thinking. Making a decision about my life path and what I want takes time and thought. But, I also live in the moment. I plan day by day, but I don’t have some big picture of what I want and how I want it to be… I just know if I want to do it, I do it.

Oh, and the only person that will know I want it, is me.

Some don’t believe in signs or pay attention. I take note, and it helps me handle certain people in a certain way. I also know I do things because of my sign, and it makes me accept “my way,” because I feel like it’s out of my control.

I am definitely strong on the outside, independent, and know how to get things done. My mind works quick. Unfortunately, some people can’t handle that. For example even though many men say they want a strong woman, they don’t. They like to feel needed. It feeds their ego. It makes them feel more manly. And, well, that’s cool. That’s not me. I don’t need your money, your house, I don’t need you to take care of me. That’s how Virgos operate. However, the Virgo does NEED support and love. If we don’t get it. Don’t expect to be respected by us. That’s what we need. It’s simple.

We can handle our own stuff, just be there. It goes a long way.

There are a few people in my life that gain so much from our connection. I gain from them, they gain from me. We compliment each other. It all comes down to honest, open conversation, sharing ideas and creating big things. Or at least trying. If you don’t try, you don’t know. I have so much love for so many people in my life. They make me melt. I’m such a softie when I feel loved. Be there, I’ll be there in return. It’s such a beautiful relationship.

“Laughter is medicine” as one of my best friends always tells me. If you aren’t laughing every day, change your environment. If you are bored, inspire yourself to get out of whatever it is that is making you bored. Sometimes it’s not even changing the situation, it’s just an open honest conversation that can change everything. Some people just don’t like to go there. They run away, they do what they think is best… and end up sitting exactly where they were a few months ago. Doing the same things they did before. Maybe by themselves, or maybe with someone new. But, it’s the same.

Never settle. I’ve heard that over and over. Sometimes I need a kick in the pants to take that advice myself, because as a Virgo I give, I support, I love, and sometimes I feel what I provide is enough. Wrong! I need it reciprocated. I need and should have it all. I don’t need you for any of your “stuff” – but I need those three things in return.

We are all smart in different ways, use your smarts. If you are sad, let yourself be sad for a while, but make sure you find a way to laugh every now and then, and you will pull yourself out of it eventually. The people that surround you are very important. If they don’t move mountains for you, or at least take time and interest in what you are doing. Let them go. Let them go sooner than later, because you could get sucked in to believing it will come in time. It most likely will not.

Choose wisely. Don’t push anyone away that brings support and love into your world. You need them. Unconditional love isn’t that easy to find. If you have it, don’t let it go!!

These words all come from my Virgo heart!  Enjoy your September, and remember, us Virgos may tell it like it is and handle things on our own… but we have big hearts and we’re here if you need us!

As always, thanks for following my site, posting on my Facebook, favoriting and sharing my tweets, and listening to me on the radio when you can. I love what I do and it wouldn’t be possible without all of you. Every single Zodiac sign, that is…. ;)

Shows Open, and Close. Too Often. Too Much.


Shows open, shows close. It’s Las Vegas.

We have amazing shows here, amazing talent, and hard working people. It’s sad to see shows like Mamma Mia! open and close in the blink of an eye. I’m sure much of the cast and crew moved here, and thought they would live here for at least a year. It comes down to this though… who thought that show was a good fit at The Tropicana and why? As soon as I heard it was opening, I thought, “again?” It had a very successful run at Mandalay Bay. Let it be. It was also 2.5 hours long. Too long for Las Vegas. The cast was great. I don’t take that away from them. I think “Dancing With The Stars” was a good fit for the Tropicana. It was current, but included old school dancing, fun, and it was full of talent. People enjoyed it, and they left satisfied. The Tropicana has a decent location, a beautiful pool, great cafe, nice venue where Bagatelle used to be, and a gorgeous showroom. Something needs to happen there. I hope to see it work out.

What is working? Well, I’ll tell you. The past. The past is the new now. People want to go back in time, they want to experience glamour, talent, interaction… with a fresh twist. That’s what much of Las Vegas is known for – isn’t it? Let the clubs and restaurants handle the new. Shows that are successful in this town are either pleasing to the eye or full of talent, costumes, and glitz. Or else, they tell an interesting story or make you laugh uncontrollably.

Also, marketing. Marketing a show is everything. I see billboards that tell me nothing about the show or person behind the show. They give me no reason to want to buy a ticket. I have started doing some hosting for 24/7 TV that runs in taxi cabs. I got on board because I feel like it’s such a good idea, and it’s going to help the tourists choose. I interviewed Veronic, for example. We see her, we read the words on her billboard, but what a great way for people to get a snippet of what she actually does. In one minute we tackled a few of her song voices, her passion for her job, and what her show includes. This gives people a better idea of what she’s all about.

There are many shows on the strip that have lasted a long time. They are quality. They don’t disappoint. I love what Las Vegas has to offer. I just think we need to search for the right talent, the right shows, and perfect our entertainment offerings. It’s just so sad to see money pumped into promoting something, and watch it fail in a few months. It happens over and over. There’s nothing worse than leaving a show you paid good money for, and being disappointed. Especially in a time when people are struggling financially. I also believe, if you have a good thing going, stick with it.

I’m proud to live here, and I come across so many talented successful people who love what they do. Let’s keep up our reputation, and find the BEST. Word of mouth is free marketing. Let them leave the showroom and spread the word.

Of course, as I always say, these are just my thoughts after being on the scene for 10 plus years, interviewing people, seeing shows, watching properties open and close. I only want the best for our town!
