Inertia creeps…

To paraphrase the great Sir Isaac Newton: in the absence of some applied external force, a body at rest tends to stay at rest, and a body in motion tends to stay in motion…

Sir Isaac Newton: Three Laws of Motion, and they even named the Fig Newton after him!  [NOTE: Fig Newtons are actually *not* named after Sir Isaac, but rather take their designation from the town of Newton, MA, USA...]

So, here’s why I bring this up: in my own immediate context, this here blog has been a body at rest for quite some time, and in the absence of an applied external force — such as the blog’s author infusing some energy back into it! — it will tend to stay at rest.  I’d even go so far as to ask Sir Isaac if a body at rest will possibly even tend to stay at rest with increasing sloth-like tenacity, the longer it’s been at rest…?  We’ve all probably experienced the feeling of resolving to climb back onto a given metaphorical horse after a long absence from the saddle, and feeling how insanely difficult the prospect is.

But regardless of difficulty — because as we’ve all heard, it’s rarely the things that are easy to do that are worth the doing — I haven’t been unmindful of this space, and am setting it back in my sights once again.  I’m ever aware of Time’s winged chariot racing along, and unlike Sir Isaac, I haven’t even coined one Law of Motion yet, much less three, so there’s no shortage of work to be done!  In terms of getting this blog back into “body-in-motion” shape, I’m aiming to update at least once or twice per week, moving forward, and please do feel free to write in with any questions or requests for topics.  If you’re looking for me, I can often be found under that big tree over there, watching out for falling apples…

  1. Hi there! I found your site through astro.com. What kind of intuitive counseling do you do? Perhaps you could blog about how you work with your clients? Come to think of it, I should blog about that!

    1. Hi, Alison — thanks for tracking me down here! I only just joined the forum over at Astro.com, but I’m enjoying myself as I go working my way through the backlog of threads there…

      In terms of counseling, my main areas of focus are with Tarot, Runes (underrated!), and Astrology (including birthchart analysis…Relationship Astrology — Synastry and Composite Charts…Locational Astrology…and Predictive Astrology, focusing mainly on Transits and Progressions for now…). Thanks for the suggestion about maybe blogging about the work itself! Please consider it under active consideration…and please also feel free to drop me a line here anytime!

  2. Hello again! I’ve been looking through some of your posts. I thought I’d show you my astrology-related blog, now that I see you also post about astrology. http://beyondthestarsastrology.com/ I just recently ‘upgraded’ to my URL sans wordpress. Not sure what I’m getting for my money, but what the hey. I am beyond the stars on astro. I’m always pleased to read when someone else has an astrology-related blog. 🙂 Keep up the good work.

    1. Thanks so much, Alison! I just bookmarked your Astrology blog, and I’m looking forward to reading your work there. Interestingly enough, I recently started Steven Forrest’s “Yesterday’s Sky,” all about the Lunar Nodes and Evolutionary Astrology, so I’m extra-curious to read your thoughts in your own series on the Nodes. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for your posts on Astro, too! Thanks again for the kind words here…

  3. I forgot to say I particularly like runes too. In fact, I spend a fair amount of time in Scandinavia, and one of the things I do while I’m here is try to understand runes better. You get more background on the meaning of the individual symbols in Iceland, I have to say (although that’s not Scandinavia).

    1. Cool (Iceland-related pun sort of intended there, I guess…)! I love the Runes. I’m also not surprised that Iceland has such a strong grasp on them, given the fact that the Eddas hail from that region. In fact, oddly enough, I currently have two primary and major travel destinations in mind for myself — based initially on Locational Astrology analysis! — and one of them is Iceland! I really want to visit there and experience it for myself. I envy your ability to study the Runes in the lands where they originated — that’s fantastic! I probably need to circle back to some Rune-centric posts soon, too…
