Single Mom Movie Review: Home for the Holidays

CONFESSION: I've watched this movie every year around Thanksgiving since it came out in 1995. I was 13 and it was VHS favorite of my mother's. I still consider it the best Thanksgiving Movie (not that there's a lot) ever created. Let me tell you how this movie stands the test of time: Family Dysfunction… Continue reading Single Mom Movie Review: Home for the Holidays

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

Aries moon and self-compassion

One awesome thing about Astrology is the ability to understand inexpiable and/or contradictory aspects about yourself. Perhaps you grew up in a very nurturing family, where you had tons of support and were very loved. You have a strong sense of confidence in your abilities, and portray a shiny perfect exterior, yet you are plagued… Continue reading Aries moon and self-compassion

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.  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

Post Election 2016

I had to go home from work yesterday because I started crying during Hillary's (and then Obama's) speech. In a government office where CNN is constantly on, I couldn't escape it. I cried for my sister, who (due to pre-exisiting conditions) will probably lose her health care in the coming months, if Obamacare is repealed.… Continue reading Post Election 2016

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 😉 I love my sister,  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

Lean on

My friend is going through a break-up. It's been devastating for her, magnified x1000 because she also suffers from anxiety and depression. It's  bad enough feeling severed from something even in the best of circumstances, so yeah..I feel terrible for her. My last break-up was with my babydaddy, and it was so traumatic that I… Continue reading Lean on
