Saturn/Chiron Square: April 30th

Astrology Update: Just as one tough square fades, another steps up to take its place… You may have felt the effects of the Venus/Saturn square that’s been testing our relationship structures since around the time April Fools’ Day was applying pies to faces all across the land. Thankfully, that square is fading now, and likely … More Saturn/Chiron Square: April 30th

Reiki Redux!

After my recent relocation to Providence, RI, I had to take some time to get the new digs set up to my satisfaction… And I’m happy to report that I now have a space that feels very conducive to the excellent administration of healing Reiki energy! I’m therefore pleased to once again officially offer Reiki sessions … More Reiki Redux!

Cup + Wand…

Here’s yet another of these examples of Tarot Suit icons popping up in the world around us… This time, we have the relaxation-inducing singing bowl holding down the Cups role, while its “striker” steps up to appear in a Wands capacity. This gives us the terrific equation of Cup (singing bowl) + Wand (striker) = … More Cup + Wand…

Healing in the Tarot…

Which Tarot cards most say “Healing” to you? I mean, you could make almost any card fit in as part of a healing context, depending on how hard you want to work at it, but which two or three immediately jump out at you here? For me, it’s Temperance in first place. This isn’t the … More Healing in the Tarot…

Reboot!

Unless you’re somehow blessed beyond all laws of probability, then you’ve experienced that phenomenon in which some computer-related piece of equipment of yours — desktop, laptop, phone, tablet, modem, router, robot housekeeper, etc., etc., etc. — fails to function properly, but then you power it off and then back on (i.e., you reboot the thing), … More Reboot!

Anagram-Birthday!

I haven’t been shy about discussing my birthday of late, it seems.  This isn’t due to rampant egocentrism, and it’s also not meant as a huge scattering of hints that everyone should begin shopping now for when the big event next rolls around again, toward the homestretch of 2014 — it’s just been coming up … More Anagram-Birthday!

Sometimes things self-correct…

One of the only vices I allow myself to indulge in regularly these days is the consumption of coffee.  Oddly enough, as a child and then even as a young adult, I always found coffee to be completely unappealing.  Only as I forged ahead into my thirties, did I begin to get on board (and … More Sometimes things self-correct…

Lord of the Underworld…

I wrote here last week about how I found myself in this pitched battle against the forces of that condition we call “strep throat”…and I can restate here that it was a pretty unpleasant conflict.  With the help of a round of antibiotics, I’m at nearly 100% now, and the streptococci have been shown to … More Lord of the Underworld…

Birth charts: the Wiring of our selves…

When I was a youngster, my older brother had a taste for science.  Looking back, I think maybe it was science in general that appealed, because he cycled through a whole lot of different fields of interest, each new season seeming to bring with it a new and specific passion: meteorology, astronomy (I fondly recall … More Birth charts: the Wiring of our selves…

The past is in the past…or is it??

If you start to open yourself up to the variety of thinking that gets filed in bookstores under headings such as “New Age” or “Wellness” or “Spirituality,” you’ll find a veritable avalanche of advice counseling you to “live in the present.”  And this isn’t bad advice, either.  It’s a great truth that we can’t actually … More The past is in the past…or is it??
