But Mercury didn’t cause the catastrophe. Planets don’t cause events, nor do they supply us with quick and easy answers. In fact, they pose questions. Right now they are posing some very pressing questions, and they aren’t taking “I don’t know” for an answer.… click here to continue reading.
But by Natural Law there is an equally remarkable influx of truth-telling happening. It is a cure equal to the need.
The Cosmos is nothing if not symmetrical.
Truth flows into my reality every day. Sometimes it comes from artists, sometimes from spiritual teachers, sometimes from “political” thinkers.… click here to continue reading.
We all know what she was talking about. Who among us, if they’ve been paying attention at all, would not view human existence in the twenty-teens as a massacre?

Do you watch Jon Stewart’s “fake news?” The Daily Show is my primary health care provider, offering therapeutic release through snark. Without him, many of us would explode from pent-up outrage and frustration at the tin-eared babble that passes for news.

Now the debate has moved uptown. Making headlines here in late 2013: the impugning by store clerks of a customer’s ability to afford grotesquely overpriced fashion accessories.… click here to continue reading.
The transits around the Equinox suggested stark raving madness. One by one, quickly moving triggers have been setting off the Cardinal Cross, starting with Mercury’s ingress into Libra, which sent the horror in Syria galloping out in front of the world’s awareness (see September’s blog).
