A Venusian Saturn = Basic Bitch

Saturn doesn't let us get away with anything. He's the strictest teacher you ever had; the guitar instructor who made you practice until your fingers bled, Mr. Miyagi who told you to repeat "Wax on, Wax off" the correct way. He's always there, watching your progress, looking at the clock, waiting for you to learn… Continue reading A Venusian Saturn = Basic Bitch

Neptune on The Galactic Center

I recently paid a visit to my mentor, who is part of a co-housing establishment (I.E. a very organized hippie commune) and a professional astrologer. My family was originally involved with the planned community, but the price tag eventually became too high for us and we were forced to look at alternative home-buying options. It… Continue reading Neptune on The Galactic Center

The gullible Empath

I've written about this before (pre-Saturn Return, in 2009): I'm a Pisces, blah blah, we are sensitive and easily led astray. Now I've matured a bit- I'll be 35 on Sunday..OMG! Is 35 too old to say "OMG"? Now that I've reached my ripe soon to-be-middle age, I know that this fish DOES have a… Continue reading The gullible Empath

Mega Transit- Heightened Awareness

I've been trying to put my thoughts together on the epic week I had, starting with the full moon last Wednesday.Ā  I don't know if epiphany is the right word, or if you even believe in those (it made me think of the below movie..haha). I experienced sudden awareness, feeling "woke", a heightened sensitivity, extreme… Continue reading Mega Transit- Heightened Awareness

Old Soul

Happy 2017! As I scroll through Facebook, I see my friends overcome by a passionate determination NOT to repeat 2016; to put that hellish year behind them, to give the previous 12 months the proverbial FINGER. I want to get on the FU train as well, but unfortunately I'm "blessed" by the astrological knowledge that… Continue reading Old Soul

Energies

My sister has a PhD in Geology. She also got married last weekend. Let's just say she's the younger, smarter, more successful daughter šŸ˜‰ I love my sister,Ā  but we are exact opposites. She's tall, blonde, gay and a scientist. I'm short, brunette, straight and an artist. She's analytical, I'm intuitive. She trusts facts, I… Continue reading Energies

How much of a hippie are you?

The 21-year-old stud texted me for an hour last night. What a trip he is. He's like a walking, talking Red State. I almost forgot what it's like to be barely legal, full of conviction and self-righteousness. Like you're ready to stare down any fool that gets in your way,Ā demanding authority,Ā simply because you'reĀ the hottestĀ thing on… Continue reading How much of a hippie are you?

Clarity stings.

Here's Annie Ortelee's astrological horoscope for today: Friday is a great day for getting things done and out the door. Some of the volatility of the past few days has abated and Venus wants to dispel or discharge the excess energy. She may be feeling a bit tuckered out from all the energy moving through… Continue reading Clarity stings.

Mutability

I went to bed at 9:30 last night, and woke up totally recharged. For some reason, these "tummy" episodes only last for about 24 hours, occurring every 4-6 weeks or so. I'm getting a little more concerned because they are getting closer together and are more intense. Time for another trip to the Primary Physician,… Continue reading Mutability

Boiling Over

Its day 2 of my new job and I'm exhausted. Last night I was sicker than a dog. I have no clue why. I think I really may have IBS or an ulcer or something, becauseĀ these "episodes" areĀ getting more frequent and have brought me to a whole new level of scary. I was sweaty and… Continue reading Boiling Over
