I have photos of myself turning 30, but I just look sad. I’m not sad to turn 40, as you can see, but I’m a little confused that I managed to live this long AND become ordinary. Midlife crisis? Two things I’m not good at: planning outings and taking selfies. I’m going to try doing … Continue reading The Latter Half of Life: Neptune Square Neptune
I made it pretty far. I wonder what they next decade will be like. I turn 40 on Thanksgiving. My birthday present to myself is hiring a maid service so I have more time for writing.

I am comfortably ambivalent with my own spiritually. For the sake of efficiency, if you were to ask me what my religion is, I will say I'm … Continue reading Heaven is a Place on Earth: We Are the Starmakers and the Stars Themselves
This is the major transit in my life now. So far, I’m feeling the effects, and let me tell you: it’s far easier if you embrace the confusion, take it one day at a time, and focus on the invisible and the joy in the little things than on the fact that you’re kind of … Continue reading Neptune Transiting Ascendant
I know that I have posted on this before here and here, but I want to add something hopeful to the mix. If you’re about 36 to 42, you may be feeling a bit of despair right now, especially if you are still working toward unfulfilled dreams. Setbacks and obstacles may be in your way, … Continue reading If You’re 36 to 42, Don’t Give Up Now! You’re Too Stupid to Fail.
