An Open Letter to A Creep

Dear Creepy Guy at the Bar: I’m thinking you might be a nice person. I’m thinking your mother loves you. Very much. But somewhere along the line she failed to teach you how to approach people. Or maybe it was an oversight on your father’s part. I speculate equitably. Since the fine art of conversation,Continue reading “An Open Letter to A Creep”

Show Me Your Hub, Baby

Things to be grateful for this week: I had a serious breakthrough in how I can be more aligned with the Center of the Tree of Life known in Qabala as Tifareth (aka the Christ Consciousness). Tifareth is the Sun/Son, the Center, and is known as Beauty or Harmony. This sphere rests in the centerContinue reading “Show Me Your Hub, Baby”

Creating Your Life

I like lists. They make me happy. They keep me focused. Lists are my friends. I tell my sons to make lists. They haven’t discovered the wisdom of such a simple task, but isn’t it the simple things that offer the most satisfaction? Caroline Miller, in Creating Your Best Life, swears by them. My bucketContinue reading “Creating Your Life”

Photojournalism Exhibition

I.O.’s aside: I’ve always been amazed by the stories that photographs tell. When written, so much of a story’s possibility is confined by the words chosen. Perhaps this is why ancient oral traditions such as the Druids were so set against putting their lore into writing. Then again, certain Native American tribes saw photography asContinue reading “Photojournalism Exhibition”

Written in the Stars

It’s supposed to get even more interesting on November 3, 2013 with the New Moon eclipse and Scorpio and Mercury Retrograde getting all comfy-cozy in the 12th quadrant (house) of the sky. Karma Brewing, that’s how Urania’s Well describes it and she’s saying this New Moon eclipse energy went into effect approximately 30 days beforeContinue reading “Written in the Stars”

The Inner Warrior

The personal focus of Lammas is on the Inner Warrior. This festival of the Lady, Witches honor Her perseverance in the face of loss. Witches examine and hope to emulate how the Lady responds to the death of Her Beloved. The path of the Warrior isn’t one of winning. It is a call to  self-discovery.Continue reading “The Inner Warrior”

The Great Rite

I’m told that Victor Andersen said something like this: Clouds are the result of the elements of air and water making love. In truth the Laws of Polarity and Attraction are at play in the creation of all things. The Big Bang? Yeah, that was the orgasm to end all orgasms (or begin?). Sex isContinue reading “The Great Rite”

Regret & Recovery

Io, …Now if I could just get over some of the deeper regrets…. Do you have regrets? How deeply do they cut your soul? Does something within you shudder if you even approach the memories sideways? Post your response. I think it might be helpful for others. Peace. —’Cu’ This question forced me to wrestleContinue reading “Regret & Recovery”

Mercury Retrograde Rx

One of the best things I ever learned, something so liberating I wept with relief when I was told, is that if you know what Mercury Retrograde (MRx) is about, you can weather the storm with optimism and even—gasp!— gratitude. MRx is a time to Re-visit, Re-do, Re-think, even Re-member. If you have no clueContinue reading “Mercury Retrograde Rx”
