There is magic in our mundane little lives. Too bad so many people don’t see it. But I’m happy to be your guide for a few minutes. I attended a stargazing class in March, learning a lot about our nightskies before they got too light. It also clarified a few terms I’ve used in astrology, […]
This was the week the snow melted. Granted, there’s still snow in the mountains, which should keep the snow bunnies during Easter vacation happy. But here, at sea level, the snow has gone. The rain came and washed away the winter. This morning I heard the seagulls. One sign of spring is the 4 am […]
Recently my Grandma wanted to know if I was the one who had told her that her mother had died. I am the one who has to remind her that her mother died – way back in the 1960’s, but I’m not the one who told her originally. Moments like those make it clear to […]
I have discovered that when my mind is scattered, I can’t focus on things like writing something sensible in my blog. For what it’s worth, I can’t focus on things like answering friends in e-mail properly, either, when my mind is like that. I feel like I’m being pulled in umpteen directions emotionally and it’s […]
Updated the princess’s chart. It seemed it was hard to see what the aspects were. They weren’t reflecting their true geometric place. So this new version of the chart has squishy houses and accurate relative placement of the planets. Same URL as before.
It’s been a crazy month. I have felt like a teenager again. I have been totally disorganized, scatter-brained, tired, and lazy. It reminds me of myself when I was in my teens. I have had fun searching the Internet for answers. Came up with a whole bunch: I have ADD (attention deficiency disorder). Well, that […]
The next one in line for the throne in Norway was born today. A girl. Her name will be announced tomorrow. She’s already historical, since Norway hasn’t had a queen in 600 years, and because until 1990, no female could be heir apparent to the throne. In 1990, the constitution was changed so that the […]
Every once in a while, I come across something that really grabs my attention or tickles me in some way. A couple of things I’ve come across are a picture of a hole in the clouds (as well as the word virga) at NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day site, which also offered this 360 […]
I think the Universe heard me: My VCR just up and quit on me Monday night. I thought I’d be rushing around yesterday (since I had the day off work), trying to get it fixed, but no. I probably need to live without so much viewing right now.
I have a note hanging on my wall next to my desk. It reads, “Discipline is doing what is important to you.” It’s meant to be a reminder to me to get off my butt and not waste time. However, it’s not working. I don’t have the discipline necessary to follow the advice. I could […]
What do you make of a girl who has Jupiter rising? The astrology books say a lucky person, a generous, gregarious, jovial person. In Capricorn, these qualities may be toned down, and the person gains her luck by working hard. But oh, dear, Jupiter in Capricorn is in its fall! Any good fortune for this […]
Jeg følger med på brannene i Sør-California, siden det jo er der jeg er fra og har bodd. Vil du se “hjemstedet” mitt? I brann? (Er et stort bilde, ca. 5 MB.) http://www.gsfc.nasa.gov/gsfc/earth/pictures/2003/1027cafires/California_Wildfires.jpg (Merk at bildet er fra tidligere i uken.) Hvis du begynner med øverste brannområde (det med en kjede øyer utenfor), og går […]
Lately I’ve been yearning for the spiritual, for uplifting, non-material parts of life, for inspiration, enthusiasm and even magic. Lately I’ve become keenly aware of my own psychic abilities. Nothing like knowing the answers to specific questions or telling someone their future. More a sort of ESP, a telepathic connection to those close to me. […]
Finally, the day had come where I just had to take my cat, Sammy, to the vet’s. She didn’t act like anything was wrong, really, but her breath had started to stink. I had the day off and a good friend of mine was willing to chauffeur us, so a little after 9 am, we […]
I like to read palmistry books. I can’t read a palm worth a darn, but I do like to read about hands. (My moon in Gemini, perhaps? Gemini rules hands.) I came across a book on palmistry that features features I haven’t seen in other palmistry books. Like what about all those little lines in […]
Da jeg bodde i USA var Halloween favorittdagen min, både som barn og som ungdom. Elsker alt det mørke, ondskapsfulle, magiske, levende døde. Som barn var jeg alltid utkledd som heks. Det skulle være noe skremmende, noe fra “det hinsidige”. Jeg fant ikke igjen kostymen min på skolen et år og ble sminket til indianer. […]
Finally. I know I have a lot to say and yet finding the energy to say it hasn’t been easy. It’s because it’s all so emotional for me and there’s so much, I have to think about organizing my thoughts. What follows is obviously from my point of view. Just want to make sure you […]
Så har jeg gjort det. Deltatt på en tegneseriemesse, nærmere bestemt Raptus. Dette har jeg gjort, men ikke fordi jeg er spesielt tegneserieinteressert (selv om jeg kjøper flere humorblad hver måned). Jeg dro ene og alene for å treffe en tegner som jeg har korrespondert med via e-post siden han brukte meg i en av […]
What can I say? Now that I can publish my blog again via Blogger.com, and its brand new interface, I have to explore further. Astrology: Mercury has gone retrograde. The planet of communications and agreements and contracts now appears to be moving backwards from our point of view. The astrological interpretation of this REtrograde motion […]
Once again, trying Blogger. This time I thought I’d let my blog be hosted by Blog*Spot but discovered that astroblog.blogspot.com is already taken. So, I’ll host my blog myself.
