Mother’s Day- A Taurus Holiday

I don't know about the rest of the world, but I always breathe a sigh of relief once Aries season is over. No offense to the ram, but every April is so chaotic and tense. The energy is buzzing with anxiety, the weather is absolutely bi-polar, and something abrupt or violent always seems to happen.… Continue reading Mother’s Day- A Taurus Holiday

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

The Golden Rule

I used to  believe in the Golden Rule. My hippie parents taught me to "treat people the way you want to be treated" and so I went forth into the world with the best of intentions for my fellow-man. I would show them respect and logically, I would receive it in return. I soon realized the… Continue reading The Golden Rule

Full Moon in Cancer

Last night was the full moon. This full moon also happened to be in its home sign of Cancer. SWM had herself a little astrology lesson on Cancer and its ruling "planet" the moon, so I'll elaborate a bit. The moon signifies the unconcious. In the tarot deck, the moon card is about whats hidden in your… Continue reading Full Moon in Cancer

Sherrybaby

Ok, here goes. When I first saw Sherrybaby, I was still "trying to make it work" with Rooferman, even though I had moved out and was living with my mother. He adamantly refused to be within 10 miles of the angry feminist aura of her house, so LB and I saw very little of him until… Continue reading Sherrybaby

Psychological Revelations

Thank you all for your awesome words of comfort. Blogging is such a strange thing. In all physicality, you are completely isolated from the rest of the world; alone with your thoughts, staring at a computer screen. Yet, I feel such a strong sense of connectedness to humanity through these virtual writings. I've traveled to… Continue reading Psychological Revelations
