Progressed Moon changing signs: Empty spaces

Posted by & filed under Moon, Not Really Astrological, Pisces, Progressions.

We spent the last week transforming the front bedroom of the house – which had disintegrated into a cluttered, chaotic “catch all” –  into a guest room. My handy spouse repaired the stained glass windows, which were in desperate need of new latches and new seals, took apart the built-in bookcase and reconfigured it to […]

magic of porches

For Americans who grew up during a particular era, a gracious front porch is a symbol of many warm memories. The front porch sheltered us from rain and sun and gave us a place to relax, imagine, and dream; it offered a sense of community and coziness, all in one.

Leo Full Moon: The Cat and the Computer

Posted by & filed under Aquarius, Full Moon, Leo, Mars, Pluto, Podcast, Saturn, The Cats.

The Cat and the Computer As an astrologer and website designer, I spend the majority of my days in the technology-rich realm of Aquarius, gazing at a computer screen.

Mind you, the desk is very fetching, quite fanciful and most appropriate for my progressed Moon in Pisces. It’s painted with a fabulous sort of Tuscan landscape complete with […]

Today some friends and I gathered to celebrate a Presidential inauguration that would have been unimaginable just four years ago. I celebrated not because the man we elected is smart, cool, and seems possessed of goodwill and good judgment, though he seems to be all these things. I celebrated not because I consider him a […]

Dateline San Diego

Posted by & filed under Newsmakers, Not Really Astrological.

Vacation was fantastic… restorative, refreshing, all that. But I cannot tell a lie: my full 9th house notwithstanding, I’m glad to be home again. Partly it’s because I came down a pretty dreadful flu the minute we hit Wellington, and spent a good deal of our last week in New Zealand in bed, watching the […]
