Astrology and Romance…

The other day, I taught an Astrology workshop focusing on what birthcharts can say about a person’s romantic potential (you know: Valentine’s Day and all…). We leaned mainly on the personal Planets and the Ascendant, and off to one side, I tallied up all of the Sign placements in the attendees’ charts, because I’m nerdy … More Astrology and Romance…

Blood Moon/SuperMoon Eclipse

Hopefully, you all got to drink in the sublime sky-show that we were privileged to see this evening…  This was the first time during one of these so-called Blood Moon events that the Moon did actually look to be tinged with red from where I was watching.  It was really something to behold… And if … More Blood Moon/SuperMoon Eclipse

Astrology 101: Meet the Planets!

Last time around, I spoke a bit about the Planets in general; in this post, we’ll look at the major Planetary players as distinct individuals. Before we jump into their profiles, I should repeat here again that “Planet” in Astrology doesn’t mean quite the same thing that it means in Astronomy. For our purposes here, … More Astrology 101: Meet the Planets!

Astrology 101: the Major Symbol-Sets (Planets, Signs, and Houses)

If you want to learn Astrology, there are three major symbol-sets that you’ll have to grasp: Planets, Signs, and Houses. This came as a real surprise to me when I first felt my interest in the field catch fire. I’d vaguely assumed that Astrology was just concerned with the Signs of the Zodiac, and that would … More Astrology 101: the Major Symbol-Sets (Planets, Signs, and Houses)

5 Reasons to Love the Moon Card

When I was still fairly new to the world of Tarot, I was shocked to learn that a great many fans of that world are apparently rather disturbed by the Moon card. This is one of my own very favorite cards – one of the ones that absolutely must strike me as beautiful or cool … More 5 Reasons to Love the Moon Card

Blood Moon: October, 2014

As many of you know, we here on Earth enjoyed a Lunar Eclipse last night.  This one was extra-special, because conditions were such that if you were fortunate enough to see this phenomenon in all its glory, you would supposedly see the great, big, lovely full Moon essentially turn blood-red.  Like this: I’m using someone … More Blood Moon: October, 2014

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…

Ladies of the Night

Well, after a lovely, court-free, trial-free weekend, it’s back to the courthouse for me today, as the trial for which I’m serving as a juror resumes.  I don’t have the kind of time available for posting the kind of long(-winded) posts I usually like to generate here, but I also didn’t want to leave this … More Ladies of the Night

Some very, *very* basic Astrology info…

So in my last post, I waxed on a bit about the avatars that we create for ourselves for use in wandering about through the world…  That is, we each have what I’ll call here an “inner self” that exists no matter what we do — this is our true self, inescapable, made up of … More Some very, *very* basic Astrology info…
