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…

Zodiac Signs: Something in the way we move…

I’ve mentioned several times here that in addition to disciplines such as Tarot and Runes, with which I’m comfortable, I’ve also been intently and vigorously studying the field of Astrology for quite a few months now.  This realm is in some ways maybe the most complex out of all of the various systems I’ve studied, … More Zodiac Signs: Something in the way we move…

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

A foot in both worlds…

Straddling borders…standing with one foot in each of two adjacent worlds.  Not an unfamiliar scenario, but one that’s been on my mind this past week as I’ve dealt with the reality of being forced to undergo the jury selection process here in Los Angeles. As you may or may not know, when you’re called for … More A foot in both worlds…

The Doors of Perception: does anything lie beyond, before we open them…?

So yesterday in this space, I put forth some thoughts about this concept I’d stumbled across in my studies of Astrology: the idea is that humanity discovers new Planets out there at the edge of our Solar System only when we’re ready to begin dealing with the concepts that those Planets represent for us. I … More The Doors of Perception: does anything lie beyond, before we open them…?

Up, up, and away…?

I’ve mentioned in this blog several times now how I’ve been studying Astrology intently for the last several months straight (following multiple periods in the past during which I much more casually just sort of dabbled in it)…  It’s been tremendously gripping this time around, and I have to conclude that maybe I finally just … More Up, up, and away…?

From out of the jungle of dreams…

Hmm…yet another animal dream last night!  ‘Tis the season?  For me, at least, it seems to be, as a few of my previous, recent posts will illustrate… This time, it was a dream of a lion: However, while the lion may be widely acclaimed as “The King of the Jungle,” the dream did not take … More From out of the jungle of dreams…
