Silent Secrets

Artwork: Love Peace Happiness

"There is a thread from the heart to the lips
where the secret of life is woven.

Words tear the thread
but in silence
the secrets speak."


My psychic abilities have been "on fire" since Neptune turned direct the other day. I am very psychic, but my psychic gifts have been muted with Neptune retrograde. Now I am getting download after download! Oh baby!

You are the Best You

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
Dr. Seuss

Isn't this quote right-on? Just as there are no two snowflakes exactly alike, each of us is unique. We may be born seconds apart and even a twin, but we are just a little bit different.

Birthing of Sunday Blessings

I just joined a group meme which is all about BLESSINGS hosted by Blue Panther, and today is my first day to participate. Yipeee!

So here goes:

I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to spend Sundays on the beach with my daughter and witness all the abundant love. Read my posting on my other blog, Who's Yo Mama, about my day today.

I am so grateful for all my blogging buddies, cyber friends and golden-oldie friends who usually call me on Sunday--which makes Sunday a busy day for me!

I am so grateful for the darling new tenants who moved in TODAY!

I am grateful that Blogger is working again, and it doesn't take forever to upload photos and upload text! Blogger had been driving us just a little bit crazy lately, ya know?!!!

Wondering About The Babies Being Born Now

With so many planets currently in Scorpio plus other challenging aspects, I can't help but wonder about the babies being born at this time. Hmmmmm......

Mercury Retrograde?

Photo: Flickr

"I want to hold you close like a lute,
so we can cry out with loving." Rumi

Mercury will go retrograde tomorrow, Oct. 28th. Astrological knowledge has it that when Mercury goes retrograde, communications, travel, appointments, mail and the internet experience snarl-ups, problems and snafus. I experience these things all the time, and no more so when Mercury is retrograde... and it's not because I had a Mercury retrograde in my natal chart! I have been observing Mercury retrograde through the years, and it seems to me that the fabled Murphy of Murphy's Law has absolutely zero respect for this astrological axiom. I know the popularity of the Mercury retrograde 'story' has grown in proportion to the expansion of worldwide communications.

Is there any validity to this Mercury retro? Maybe it's bettah just to see this time period as an opportunity to go within and take a vacation from our chattering Monkey Brains for awhile.

Finally....I Post About Astrology!

When I originally began this blog, my intention was to make regular posts about astrology. However, as it turned out, I began giving birth to a litter of other blogs which took up a lot of my time, and thus this blog turned more into a quote & moon photo blog with ocassional references to moon books and stories. PLUS learning html, creating a sidebar with links, learning how to work with Blogger and all the happy horseshit that goes with being a blogger consumed most of my spare time when I wasn't working on other projects.

However, today I throw caution to the wind and let these other projects slide as I attempt my first astrological- oriented posting. It seems like a good day for me with the Moon transiting my Midheaven and natal Moon to come out of the closet, eh? I confess my confidence as an astrologer isn't the highest even though I have been studying astrology for quite a few years and often even get paid for it. I have many astrology books and even purchased the Magi Astrology Software a few years back and studied with them. However, when I compare myself to MOST other astrologers, I feel lame. It seems EVERY other astrologer must be more knowledgeable than me.

That is why my postings aren't going to be erudite, amazing astro posts that you will find on most of the blogs on the sidebar, but you will find FEELINGS, musings, authenticity and astrological relevant data. Who knows, maybe someone will actually read my astro posts and find some merit to them?!

Here are some of my musings of the day vis a vis my personal astrology, and I will frame them in the context of questions. Maybe some other astrologer will offer some insights and even make a comment.

Since (demoted) Pluto has been conjunct my Natal Moon in Sag in the 10th for such a very long time and squaring my Natal Sun in the 7th, once Pluto moves on down the road, will I feel like a weight has been dropped off my shoulders? Will I become a butterfly at last? Will everything I have known just drop away? I know you can't take just ONE aspect and read a chart....but still I wonder.

I have played around/studied astro-cartography for many years and also had some readings done by some of the famous astrologers who specialize in astrocartography. One interesting thing I discovered is that places where my Venus is prominent/angular are places I got married. I didn't pick these locations, but that's how the cookie crumbled for me. I wasn't even living at these locations, but was brought to them by another and then got married there. Are we destined to marry at Venus astro places? I know the Magi astrologers believe that marriage is ruled by Chiron, but I did get married at my Venus locations. Go figure!
