Here’s a new hobby of mine: Reverse-engineering the astrological placements and aspects on the app The Pattern. For those who don’t know, this is an astrology app with none of the astrological jargon. It’s well-written, and yes, it is accurate, though I have to say that unlike other astrology apps, the reading actually focuses on … Continue reading The Pattern
Ruth Bader Ginsburg died today. This could be the first step toward America really becoming a theocracy. But I really hope not. I really do. So, where are you all thinking of expatriating if the shit hits the fan?
Okay, maybe not all astrologers, but most of us, I think. Okay, some of us. At least once. Here’s a uniquely astrological problem, and don’t even try to tell me that this has never happened to you at least once, because if you’re an astrologer, whether you’re an amateur or a professional, whether you’ve been … Continue reading Astrologers are All Doing It: Crushing on (or Falling in Love With) an Astrological Chart
Mandu and kimchi. Dinner of champions. Today was the day that I decided to finally go to the Korean market to get groceries, and I only left with a few things. No short-grain rice. I don’t know why I didn’t get any. But eating Korean food reminds me of the feeling I had at reinvention … Continue reading Two Years in Korea: Eight Years Later
So here I am on a cool, rainy night, trying to figure out how to get kimchi bokkeumbap delivered to me that 1) doesn’t cost $25, and 2) comes with banchan and not just some weak wae-guk kimchi.

I may have the option to return to my hometown for Thanksgiving, which is shortly before my birthday, and my birthday is on a Saturday this year, which means I’d either be in the Finger Lakes for my birthday or traveling back to Chicago, or by … Continue reading On the 4th House
To everyone who is about 40 - 42 years old right now: You're not the worst person in the world, you don't deserve to be alone, and if you still haven't figured out what it is you're on Earth to fix, you still have time to figure it out. Thanks.

Isn't this all part of the claptrap of belief? You can live without belief in higher powers and still be an astrologer. Atheism and … Continue reading Astrology is for Atheists
Today I just realized that the last physical contact I had with another human body was over four months ago. Today I also realized that the last physical contact I had with a human body was with a corpse. And when I think about it, I’m not sure if I’m ready to be touched again … Continue reading Upward and Onward
So I’m looking at the news and following the COVID coverage wondering if my Jack London mini-adventure is going to come to fruition or if I should wait until the fall. The adventures may have to be in my head and my starry nights splayed across my television. But at least I'll live. Metabolically, I'm … Continue reading North Node Aversion and South Node Indulgence
