Every now and then I quote from this poet, whose 2005 book, "Vectors" is a frequent-flyer on my desk. Here's aphorism #164: "I say I have no self-knowledge, but I know which things I will never tell you." If THAT's not moon in Cancer, I don't know what is. (Ausablepress.com)
I know it's the Oscars tonight but I'm totally unmotivated. Last night Zoe and I went to STARS ON ICE, which was, as anticipated, sublime. Totally recommended, and the pairs skaters keep ratcheting the bar upward. Sale/Pelletier, Ina/Zimmerman were doing acrobatic maneuvers on the ice you wouldn't think cartoon characters could do, let alone real people.
total materialistic luxury lusting. I have used a black leather backpack for years and the current one has silk flowers tied to the zipper togs so I can tell if the zipper is open. And Vera Bradley has these really enticing psychedelic patterns that appeal to the latent secret preppie within. $94!!! includes shipping. I CANNOT justify this!!! wretched moon in taurus ignites this stuff, frankly.
I am behind on my American Idol watching -- even w/knock-off Tivo, 5 hours doesn't condense to 15 minutes. Which I enjoy for a variety of reasons, first and foremost among them being Simon Cowell's perfection at showing the TRUE nature of Libra. The sly integrity, the occasional daffyness, the laser-sword slash and the blithe dismissal.
I just had my class in "lunar rhythms and natal horoscopes" at Fitchburg Art Museum with some extremely bright and lively folks -- no discernable pattern with the sun signs -- BUT some similar looking charts. And I got to thinking about patterns and Mercury retrograde and how impossible it is to anticipate the way communication can melt down during this period.
An online friend who's a gemini recently stopped smoking so I provided the days in next fortnight that she would be extra-annoyed. I want credit for the term "astrological stresstimate"
I have a question about my sun (Pisces) and moon (Aries). It looks to me like they're going to be in almost exactly the same alignment on my birthday (Feb 20) as they were the year I was born - I haven't noticed this before. How often does this happen? Is there anything to be aware of or look for in my day/year/ life pattern w/ this configuration coming around again?
Oh the sorrow. Oh the agony of being a florist/fancy restaurant on the day Mercury retrogrades AND there's a long-awaited snowstorm. I don't know about you but the lack of snow and warm weather pre-February makes me feel very distracted as to time when it DOES snow. The last time it did my first thought was -- KeeRIST, I am NOT READY for Christmas!
Readers: I've been emailing the web people at Phoenix to see whether we can't make Moon Signs as easy to find as it has been. I've also been visiting alt-weekly sites to see who's making a site that's easy to navigate. Yeah, completely crazy thing to do during Mercury retrograde, but there you go. So, my ? is: What's your favorite newspaper website -- is there a website you think is well-designed and easy to navigate? I'd love to visit if possible. .
