My grandmother who is a sun-sign Libra has a peculiar strategy in dealing with the way I choose to live my life. She’s from the old school and so she doesn’t really get why I choose to live my life the way I do. It’s not like I’m an extremely unconventional individual, unless you ask her of course. I simply choose to live and do what’s best for me but unfortunately that’s not really what’s good for her. If it was up to my grandma, she’d have me do things her way. Nevertheless, I have to admit our relationship has come a long way from what it once was. We would constantly argue about how I’m living my life which would pretty much end with me leaving her presence. But now she refers to a statement that insures that I won’t abruptly leave her while simultaneously keeping the peace between us. “If you happy, I’m happy”, she proclaims in her thick Russian accent when I reply to her inquiries about how life is going for me. Internally, I’m not quite sure what to make of it. Part of me really wants to believe her but the other part of me suspects she’s just playing nice. Regardless, at least I don’t feel like my point of view wasn’t considered and peace and harmony continues to prevail between us up to this day. Read More
Whether we are a sun-sign Pisces or not, we all are going to experience this potent Pisces new moon and solar eclipse in a certain way. Wherever Pisces or Neptune it’s ruling planet is located in your chart, and the aspects it makes to your personal planets, there will be an influx of activity ranging from that which brings one a sense of ecstasy and bliss to that which may have felt like that at one point but now feels like a disillusionment. We may encounter scenarios that make us feel like a victim or a savior, someone who is looking for salvation or someone who feels helpless in trying to save another. The fact that a total solar eclipse is occurring during this lunation can wildly influence a dramatic shift in ourselves or our loved ones as one door may be closing while another opens. By using the Piscean energy of letting it go we allow for the process to unfold more naturally. Read More
Jim Morrison was the lead singer for the rock band known as the Doors and was known for his psychedelic inspired music and performances that captivated audiences worldwide. Far from being the average rock band at the time, Jim and his band The Doors experimented heavily with acid which inspired the music and performances that made him notoriously famous. They created a sound that was highly innovative using the latest technology which was a fitting accompaniment to Jim’s distinctive haunting baritone voice. His songs tackled dark and powerful subjects such as death, murder, and madness, along with the traditional themes of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Read More
Could you imagine life without tech-support for the devices we own like our computer, cell-phone, or the latest hi-tech devices? Just the thought alone can put a knot in my stomach real quick. Thankfully, nowadays whenever a problem arises with our mechanical experiences we can always rely on the fact that in the worst case scenario, tech-support is just a phone call away to fix our problem and the headache that accompanied it!
If only it was that simple with our personal lives and the conundrums we have with trying to create the perfect life for ourselves or the perfect work environment that we want to be a part of. We may get stressed initially when we realize there’s a problem but it most likely wouldn’t get as disastrous and wreak havoc in our lives because we know that “tech-support-for-life” is just a phone call away to hopefully bring us back to our merry little selves.

How fitting to be starting up this website and blog at the Aquarian New Moon. The sign of Aquarius, with it’s ruler Uranus symbolizes astrology, the internet, and break-throughs. I have been learning so much recently about internet technology and all the tech-talk associated with setting up a blog and an astrology website. What surprised me is that I had no preconceived ideas about when would be the best time to launch it. To me, thats a sign that I’m in harmony with the universal flow. I’m not big on casting a chart to make a decision for me. It would be nice to notice the transits at the time but I need to rely on my gut instinct and my intuition as far as what feels right in any given moment and to cross-check that with what my immediate environment and reality is communicating to me. If things seem a bit hectic at the moment I would tend to hold off until I feel that I got the “green light” from the world around me rather than what I might interpret a current planetary transit to mean. Just like now! It didn’t take long for me to realize that the Aquarius New Moon was highly compatible with what I’m doing!
