Take 2: If at first you don’t succeed
Sometimes past efforts can seem like a dismal failure because we didn’t reach the desired outcome. Other times a past success is a springboard to something else or something even better. It’s all in our perspective. Here’s a photo by @KyleinCpt on Facebook (yes, that’s Kyle of Cape Town, South Africa). His first try wasContinue reading “Take 2: If at first you don’t succeed”
Year of the Yin Earth Pig
And so it begins! As the 12th, or “last,” Animal in the Chinese Zodiac, the Pig is the party at the end! All your Ancestors have ever wanted is for you to invite the people you love into your home, so you can cook, eat, and make babies—your enjoyment is their immortality. Enjoy the wholeContinue reading “Year of the Yin Earth Pig”
Taking aim and loving it
On the first Monday of the new year, I took aim at a target, cleaning out and re-organizing my file cabinet. By day’s end I’d finished, feeling lighter, energized, and oh so productive. Each day between now and Feb 2, I’m gonna take aim at one task or another and see how much gets accomplishedContinue reading “Taking aim and loving it”

Hope’s name is November
Doorways to the other world were flung open yesterday at sunset. Goblins and faeries, carousing dinosaurs and unicorns, not to mention diminutive fire-breathing Ruth Bader Ginsburgs, paraded through darkened neighborhoods for a few hours in search of sugar, applause and community. Their costumes, masks and playful antics invited us to re-imagine what’s possible. That otherContinue reading “Hope’s name is November”
Part 3: Past meets present, Earth meets sky
Monday morning, September 17, we set out from Green River, UT. With a Libra Ascendant and Venus soon to rise, neither of us had any doubt that beauty would once again be our companion on the lonely highways of the American West. Yet we experienced little of the ebullience of our first day onContinue reading “Part 3: Past meets present, Earth meets sky”
Part 2: Past meets Present, Earth meets Sky
As you learned in the previous post, my friend and I arrived in Green River, UT September 16, on time for that memorable Sunday sunset. What I wasn’t aware of, until we settled in for the night, was that the Washington Post (WAPO) had published an Investigations piece a few hours earlier by Emma Brown and herContinue reading “Part 2: Past meets Present, Earth meets Sky”
Past meets present, Earth meets sky.
Even astrologers need a break from the mundane. So when a dear friend and colleague, recently back from overseas and in delicate health, explained that she needed to get herself and her car from Santa Fe to Northern California on time for her nephew’s equinox nuptials, I did some quick math. My work calendar hadContinue reading “Past meets present, Earth meets sky.”
