Mercury enters Capricorn

Practical knowledge or bust.

If you don't learn something from everything you are doing or have it be a step to elevate you in some way, then you aren't doing Mercury in Capricorn right. You know it, the stern taskmaster is now in charge until December 29, making it about seeing results or putting strategies into place that create results. So, it's full steam ahead with direction and determination or bust!

Main subjects in which to indulge your thoughts with some substance are as follows:

Aries (March 21-April 19): Living out your aspirations
Taurus (April 20- May 20): Expanding what you believe in
Gemini (May 21- June 20): Enjoying your most private secrets
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Understanding your idea of peace
Leo (July 23- August 22): Challenging your traditions
Virgo (August 23- September 22): Expressing yourself more boldly
Libra (September 23- October 22): Connecting back with your foundations
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Creating new curiosities
Sagittarius (November 22- December 21): Fueling your senses
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Driving your agenda
Aquarius (January 20-February 19): Compartmentalizing fact from fiction
Pisces (February 20-March 20): Building your Utopia

Venus reenters Scorpio

It is never as it seems.

...Sometimes, like an award-winning foreign film, it takes patience to get into, but by the end, it's the best...

Sun in Sagittarius (Day 3)

Keeping hope alive.

OH MY F-ING GOD! ...I am not one that is a tooter of my own horn, but dang, even I can't believe the turn around!!! Every day since the sun entered Sagittarius, something exiting, like really exciting has happened...Today, began my day at the crack of dawn to gussy myself up before heading to 30 Rock...saw the sunrise for the first time in my new apartment, since I moved here in March, or so it felt...Shot the segment and it went totally smooth and soo swimmingly (despite having to do my own make-up) that I got invited back already!

Part of my day in pictures:

...Then got home a little later than the time I typically begin my day, crazy! And that also included lunch, shopping, taking in a few X-mas window displays and a long chat with a friend on the phone, while watching the X-mas tree get set up...Later, spontaneously met with FLC (Sagittarius) for coffee and holiday booze shopping and yeaaah, got more presents! Love it!!!...Then came home and got an email from a super exciting contact from overseas!!!!! Broadcasting, spontaneity, a Sagittarius friend, surprise presents, a foreign correspondence...all Sagittarius themes! OMG, I am so aligned with the universe again, I can't even take it! WHEW F-ING WHEW IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY!!!

...and how random, but what is up with the developing moose theme in my life?

Sun in Sagittarius (Day 2)

More sweet surprises!

Woke up to the cutest email from my little twin star Lala (Scorpio), who moved to the Land of Smiles (AKA Thailand) too long ago to teach English and never came back(WAH!)... He sent me this funny video of his students singing "Happy Birthday." Adorable! He's not in it, but he's the one that cheers at the end. Too cute!

(...and so you know, my b-day isn't actually today, it was a little while ago, back in Scorpio...but as life goes on, I am not so into making a big parade of it, but rather spending a day doing something fun and memorable...but I do love and appreciate that I have friends that remember, even if I don't mention it--like Lala, who also surprised me one year when he was living in Seattle by sending me a jumbo mystery box of trinkets from Archie McPhee! ...This year I started my day with a surprise b-day burrito with pink candles at the stroke of midnight, then later made a pilgrimage to see a life-size moose made of chocolate!!! Amazing!)

...And in more ME news, and I am not talking about Maine, learned my fave DJ is coming to town -- DJ JT SUPERSTAR!

Sun enters Sagittarius

Let the sunshine in!

I love Sagittarius! It's the sign of truth, spontaneity, adventure, optimism and catharsis, to name a few of its lovely traits....and like all that it represents, the kick off brought in a slew of surprises and turned life around in an instant for me and a few of my friends that have also had a trying year, which just makes me want to sing this song at the top of my lungs:

Yes, in homage to this hopefully continuing exciting time, life will do a full on reversal on the uncertain vibe that it gave away to most of this year, ending all the flakiness, and putting back the pieces of the puzzle to a picture I want to see....and how crazy is this, the list of good news that arrived all in one day:
  • Positive news that a pending financial disaster isn't likely to happen to me and another friend of mine...ending a two-week agony.
  • An invite to do a TV segment for NBC, from an lovely acquaintance from ages ago that happens to be a Sagittarius!
  • Also ran into my ex-neighbor that I adore at the grocery (a Gemini, complimentary sign of Sagittarius!), who I happen to have been thinking about for the last few weeks and wanting to contact!
  • My fab friend Judy (a double Aries), who is writing her second book, got a personal email from a celeb that wants to be in her book! (& freaky deeky, she got the news almost the exact time the sun when into Sag!)
  • My beloved FLC (a Sagittarius), got just that much closer to his dream job.
  • ...and although this happened a few days prior, with astrology, all aspects have at least a few days before and after that it can have an effect, which means these count too...my amazing friend Christine (Taurus) who was fighting to keep the school in her district open got news her school won't be closing and my totally inspiring friend Shlomi (Scorpio), who is an singer in the Young Artists Program of the Israel Opera, got to sing on the BIG stage. Yes, wowee zowee!
...as Oprah (Aquarius) said on her Favorite Things Part 2 show today, which so captures the spirit of Sagittarius, "It’s not about the stuff... It's about hope, and knowing that something magical and joyful can happen to you when you least expect it."

Full moon in Taurus

Celebrate your appetite for life.

Postscript 4:04pm 11/24/2010 
I still feel bloated from yesterday, which started way earlier than usual to consume copious amounts of dim sum and then wash it down with a can of orange soda...to then shortly move onto a mochaccino, to then later ingest a bag of coconut M&Ms, a few mice shaped gummies and the majority of a big bag of caramel corn. After, had a side of rigatoni and a 2-meatball sandwich on a brioche, smothered in tomato sauce and cheese...continued later to inhale the rest of the caramel corn, with the  exception of a few kernels, which I left to not feel like a total pig, but when I woke up today, I ate them.

Venus goes direct in Libra

Everyone, back to falling in love!
Breathe a sign of relief if you were one of those people who couldn’t cut a break in love, money or even squeezing out good hair days as of late. Good news is there was a reason for that mayhem and it was a VENUS IN RETROGRADE — a trying period when all things dealing with love, beauty and pleasure go haywire and swing you from emotional extreme to emotional extreme, while also, at times, skewing your vanity. However, November 18th marked the day when the insanity officially ended, giving us just one more week of its aftershocks before fully subsiding its dastardly power, which took hold on October 8th in intense Scorpio (which then re-entered indecisive Libra on November 7th, where it will stay until November 29th, until it returns to Scorpio until January 7th, 2011 (an extra long SEXY stay!!!)).

Yes, now with Venus direct, going back in forward motion, this is the time to get back to falling in love, feeling beautiful and learning how to enjoy life, without white knuckles! …and while many of you might have heard of Mercury retrograde, where everything dealing with communication tends to break down, that happens mostly 3 times a year for approximately 3 weeks. Venus retrograde happens once every 1.5 years, for approximately 6.5 weeks — and often hitting issues closer to home, as instead of mental aggravations, these are emotional ones. So, typically the lesson of each is always of letting go of something, as all retrogrades always deals with the past in some way and helping move one into the future with more clarity. As for the areas and lesson this Venus direct hits for each sign, as in re-learning appreciation and owning pleasures derived from certain areas in your life, here’s the short list (which really picks up speed by Nov. 29th-Jan. 7th):

Aries (March 21-April 19)- Sex and Control
Taurus (April 20- May 20)-
Commitments and Harmony
Gemini (May 21- June 20-
Traditions and Organization
Cancer (June 21-July 22)-
Romance and Worship
Leo (July 23- August 22)-
Family and Home
Virgo (August 23- September 22)-
Learning and Communicating
Libra (September 23- October 22)-
Love and Security
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)-
Personal fulfillment and Instincts
Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)-
Soul mates and Imagination
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Friendships and Innovation
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Power and Prestige
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Truth and Adventure

Jupiter goes direct in Pisces

Oh, it's you again...About time!

See what an influence Jupiter has!
Ever since July 23, 2010, Jupiter has been going backwards and causing a breakdown in lucky streaks, expansion and the overall optimistic mood, at least in my opinion...but woohoo, today, it moves back in forward motion, helping bring about hope, imagination and compassion--as those are the things that Pisces represents. As for a refresher on all those places in your life that this will effect until January 22, 2011, click here to learn what it all means again: http://tinyurl.com/ydxufqc

Mercury enters Sagittarius


Being green is good and I appreciate that I have a low flush toilet, but it has an irritating side. Every time I poo, I have to clear its landing or I have to clean the toilet...Since the bowl is basically dry (and big), with only a small opening at the bottom with water, if I don't get my shit right into that hole, in its entirety, completely clearing the sides, it'll hit the wall and stick there and dry until I clean it...there have been cases it dried so hard, it almost had to be scrapped off and then those times I had to clean up after guests (dry heave)...but for the most part, at this point, I have good aim...and I eat a lot of fiber.

Oh and P.S. I hate the new blogger. It has weird kinks in typing, copying and pasting and uploading pictures...basically everything.

Venus retrogrades into Libra

Who cares what anyone else thinks?

I know, I know...There I was having one of those days at the gym, feeling like a zombie in retrograde smack down mode...giddiness is not the word I would use to describe my mood, as I was going through the motions on the elliptical, not even breaking a sweat and zoning out on the TV when this video popped up:

...and although my instinct would of normally made me turn the station ASAP, I was being possessed by a certain strain of poppiness I couldn't fight....and let me tell you, until that day I never consciously listened to any Taylor Swift song ever, assuming I'd have no tolerance, but then there I was, lured in by this video where she plays an awkward teen in love with her neighbor, writing notes to him from across the way, making me stay until the end when I let out my big, "Awwwwwwwwww."

Yes, warmness.

...What can I say, those are the kind of disgusting surprises that will occur during a retrograde...Now let me go puke from this admission...

Neptune goes direct in Aquarius

New Moon in Scorpio

Deep transformations are in store. Act with determination, not desperation.

"...I'm a very GOOD man. I'm just a very bad wizard..."
With all things Scorpio comes intensity. So, even as a celebratory new moon is under way, prepare for a two week period that may bring shocking surprises that cause sudden changes, forcing you onto a new direction. While the ride may be scary, the true test of Scorpio is seeing how deep your reserves  are and how courageous you are willing to be. Yes, even in an exalted new moon, which is about new beginnings, Scorpio will bring it on with strings attached and where it might take  you,  you'll never know until the bottom goes out and has you suddenly released onto its journey of mayhem and/or magic....However, hints of where this abrupt rebirth might occur is as follows:

Aries (March 21-April 19): Your inner psychology
Taurus (April 20- May 20): Adversaries
Gemini (May 21- June 20):Health
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Creativity
Leo (July 23- August 22): Basic foundations
Virgo (August 23- September 22): Thought processes
Libra (September 23- October 22): Sense of worth
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Identity
Sagittarius (November 22- December 21): Karma
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Ideals
Aquarius (January 20-February 19): Your reputation
Pisces (February 20-March 20): Faith

Holy fucking shit!!!! I was soooo on it!!!!!! Crazy!!! ...wished it worked on myself...
