Here we are again at eclipse season, and you know, I'm feeling it, but I'm accustomed to the buzz now. I finally got my car back, and it looks much better. In fact, they had to replace a panel that had an unsightly dent from a previous collision when my car was parked and a … Continue reading November 8, 2022 Taurus Eclipse
In keeping with my tradition of barely posting these days, I want to talk a little about mid-autumn, Samhain, the day that the veil between worlds is the thinnest, all Hallow's Eve, Halloween. And frankly, I don't feel like celebrating. I haven't decorated, and I've barely thought about my dumb dinner, and I haven't connected … Continue reading Happy Samhain!
The fall equinox is upon us, and I'm looking forward to it. It's not that I want summer to end as I've learned to really enjoy summer, but I'm looking forward to astrological weather that wakes me up, because fall and winter are my seasons of creative motivation. I also tend to look good in … Continue reading Mabon
10th House (Reputation) and 8th House (Legacy): One of the interesting things about 21st century astrology is that a lot of the original meaning of words has been lost because the original intent has also been lost, and my guess is largely out of disinterest for the origin. Astrology was not democratic until the last … Continue reading What’s the Difference Between the 8th House and 10th House?
It's Virgo season, and the New Moon in Virgo is on Saturday, conjunct my North Node/Mars in the 6th house, so I'm looking forward to it. There's a lot of work to be done on me, a lot of work to be done in general, and Virgo season is around the time I start to … Continue reading Virgo New Moon, Virgo Things
So I do appreciate this time of year even though I generally don't like August. It's an identity crisis, you know, the last decan of Leo: it's summer, but it's not fall, but a lot of things we identify with summer are going, specifically the summer abundance: the abundance of heat, the abundance of sunshine, … Continue reading The Last Five Weeks of Summer, Venus in Leo, Taurus Things
The only thing I have to do on July 31st is drop off the rent check. We still pay for rent by check here, another one of those stripped-down things about this building that I'm used to dealing with. August 1 is Lughnasa, Lammas, the midpoint between summer and autumn in which the harvest begins. … Continue reading Lughnasa without Grain
Fuck the 4th of July. It's on my list of no-go holidays with Thanksgiving now. SCOTUS is a sacred cow that needs to be melted back into jewelry. And only in a country in which we don't put our fundamentalists in insane asylums where they belong but give them tax breaks to fleece the poor … Continue reading Fuck the 4th of July
Saturday was the last perfect spring day of the season here, and I got to enjoy it a bit. Sunday was a perfect late spring day. Monday was definitely a great day to stay in and get things done, and today, it was 100 degrees at one point. The flowers are long since gone and … Continue reading It’s The Summer Solstice of 2022
There's too much going on in my non-astrology life for me to stop and comment on the news, all the news, or even just the crises. I will say that if Roe v. Wade does get overturned and someone needs a place to crash in Chicago en route to camping in Illinois, I have a … Continue reading The Scorpio Lunar Eclipse of 2022
