My January 1, 2017 involved a sort of holistic program of both yoga and Reiki. I loved it in the moment, it felt great on multiple levels…but then I had a bit of a stormy weekend afterwards, anyway (emotionally-speaking), and not always for reasons I could pinpoint, which felt sort of baffling and unsettling. Why would I be … More New Year’s Evolution: Take Care with This Phase of Self-Care…
“The only normal people are the ones you don’t know very well.” – Alfred Adler Mishegoss. This is a Yiddish word, and it’s derived from the Hebrew “meshugga” (= “senseless,” “crazy”).

In honor of the Full Moon last night, I busted out a big spread based on the 12 astrological Houses. I’ll be doping out the meaning of this reading for days to come!

Stress is bad for us. I can’t imagine this will be anyone’s first time encountering this notion. We all know this — it’s hardly a closely-guarded secret, locked away in some clandestine power bloc’s deepest, most blast-proof vault somewhere impregnable and subterranean. Stress is bad for us… We’re probably even almost unanimously agreed on this one…and we … More “I release you.”

Just a quick post here today, but maybe a worthy one… If you adhere to — or can at least accept the existence of — the American way of writing out dates, you’ll see that for us here in the US, today is kind of an interesting date. January 23 is written out here in … More 1-2-3, Go!!
Certain animals attract us. And the ones that appeal to me and the ones that appeal to you might differ entirely…and the next person might come along with yet another wholly different set of favorite beasts… This is all pretty obvious stuff, of course…but as the holidays and other assorted wellsprings of busy-ness conspire to … More Animal Magnetism
