Mercury in Virgo

"If it doesn't fit, you must acquit."

No matter how much emotion you feel or what the past might have made you thought was the equation, what you have in your hands now is the only evidence you've got to know what is up and go forward. So, get real and preen down the subjective, to focus on your objective, as the only way to get to the heart of matters that are taking up your brain space is to see what pieces fit together and which you are trying to jam into position. You'll have the best clarity now to get it together, so look and learn.

New Moon in Leo Day 13

Laced Glamour: Double your chickens, double the fun.

This has nothing to do with anything, but out-and-out bragging. Of all the accomplishments in my life, solving the Rubik's Cube is one of the tops on my list. It took a long time to figure it out, as in, way post its craze, and NO I did not get any help. Give me any one and I can do it. This one took 2 hours, but the fastest I did it once was 15 minutes. Not that I give a shit about speed, as I know how to do it in a very guerrilla manner, but no matter, it's a skill I want everyone to know I have.

As for today's pics, I combined them into a Full Moon in Pisces' slide show, so I didn't have to be redundant about my beautiful day spent with beautiful people in a most beautiful place...Highlights: two visits to the beauty spa, starting with a massage, then later got a pedicure, swung high above the trees, laid eggs from the sky, played chicken on the highway, chased the sunset around a reservoir, ate tons of yumminess and even my ice cream cone had paparazzi....

Favorite Pic Of The Day
Thank You Jaime!

New Moon in Leo Day 11

Laced Glamour: Reboated

When one ship sails, in comes another -- at least in my life these days... Missed Friday's ride, but today another boat adventure turned up via Judy and her fun writing assignments! This time, we hit the water and cruised about the southern tip of Manhattan during twilight. We couldn't of been bothered with the NYC view, where everyone else was cramming to see and just enamored ourselves with views of Jersey....Ah...Anyway, my inspiration for today's look was Marcia Brady and Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island...but buzzed before boarding, I didn't get a full shot before the sun went down, so I just piecemealed it together, in-between snapping blurry skyline pics...

New Moon in Leo Day 10

Laced Glamour: Blue Sunday

I love when you can pull something old out of your closet and make it new again--like I did with this top. I got it ages ago, when I got my column in JANE. I also have it in pink, because I couldn't decided which one I wanted, so I celebrated my new column with getting both. They're basically just a piece of silk with two long pieces sewed on that can be draped and tied in a gazillion different ways. I love it because when it's hot out, it's like wearing nothing. Simple and chic! If I could sew, I'd make a dozen more. If you want one, here is the shape to sort out your pattern.

New Moon in Leo Day 9

Laced Glamour: The ZZZZZ Edition

There will be no picture today because this day hardly existed for me. Seems I broke my own sleeping record, as I slept from 4am Saturday morning until 10am Sunday morning -- no joke. I did get up at 7pm on Saturday for 20 or so minutes, to go to the can, but it was all a bit of a blur. WTF? IDK.

New Moon in Leo Day 8

Laced Glamour: Missed The Boat Take 116

RED ALERT! RED ALERT! Mercury Rx is suppose to be over and we are suppose to be out of the shadow too, but its menacing influence is still in the air and causing havoc. If my day was suppose to go the way it was planned, Ingrid and I would of been at Riis Landing, Breezy Point right next to Fort Tilden, at the farthest end of Brooklyn at 11:30a.m. to get on a boat to go on a 4 hour whale watching trip. I was awake at 8am to get there on time, at Ingrid's by 10 and we were on the train shortly after, excited for our day out on the water....But instead of our idyllic nature day, we got onto the wrong train, wound up in the Third World part of Brooklyn and missed the boat being lost talking to a bunch of people that had no clue where we were going.... No matter, we are resolute gals and once we found out we were on a bus in the wrong direction, in the middle of nowhere, we flagged down a gypsy cab, who also had no idea where we wanted to go -- but no matter, it was impossible to get there by that time anyway, so we just took it to the nearest train station, which took a rather long time, and from there decided to go to Rockaway Beach....Later, I didn't want my extra clothes I hauled about all day to be in vain, so viola, outfit #2....and point of all this, Mercury RX still in effect.

New Moon in Leo Day 7

Laced Glamour: Domestic Goddess Sans Fard

Mars enters Scorpio

Put the bass in your walk.

This is no time to be shy! Although Scorpio is the sign of secrets and mystery, there is a difference between being coy and being a puppet master. So, as Mars, the planet of power, ambition, sex, passion and war has entered Scorpio, one of its rulers and also synonymous with sex, power, intensity, death and transformation, be ready to give all you've got into all that you want, because now is when anything short of obsession isn't going to win your battles -- as this is the time to be consumed by your desires or have them consume you. Play it like a Scorpio, as in ready to go full on kamikaze if need be, as its dedication like that, that will make you who you want to be, in the life you crave.

As for areas per sign you have until October 6th to make and see a total transformation:
Aries: Finances
Taurus: Beauty
Gemini: Obligations
Cancer: Love
Leo: Family
Virgo: Expression
Libra: Possessions
Scorpio: Confidence
Sagittarius: Imagination
Capricorn: Friendships
Aquarius: Career
Pisces: Freedom

Back when I was a horny little teen, I use to keep a Lust List in my journal -- all the guys I thought were hot and totally doable....and it was back then that my libido was my driving force, and I guess even to this day, it still is, as I have accepted that I forever will have a crazy teenybopper in me that lives to lust like a hormonally imbalanced head to keep that fresh feeling alive, here is sampling of my latest lusts for the fun of it...After all, this is the transit of the sex planet in the sex sign...

New Moon in Leo Day 4

Laced Glamour: Tourist Chic

What I learned today: If you ever take a double-decker bus tour, sit in the back for the better views. Judy and I did the front and back, and the back was way more impressive. Also, the tour guides are whack. Imagine saying the same speech every day at least 3 times a day to an unresponsive group of tourists... To say the least, our daytime tour guide was hysterical, as she sounded totally stir crazy, and our second guide, who sounded like Bloomberg's gay cousin, made up his own info during parts of our tour or was just spewing a lot of outdated info....As for why I am on this bus when I live in NYC, it's because my darling friend Judy, (Author of The Official Book of Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n' Roll Lists and How Not To Date) got a new assignment that required she have to ride the hop-on-hop-off lines. So, we made a day of it and dressed the part! Voila!

New Moon in Leo Day 2

Laced Glamour: Nailed

Glamour is undone without Miss Pop, who always nails down any look! Lucky for me she is a good friend and lives in my hood too. For today, I stopped in for her to work her brilliance via a dose of reality in our chit chat and beautiful tips to point me in a new direction.
The inspiration: saddle shoes. Click on last pic to get a closer look.

P.S. I worship at the Salon of Miss Pop! She totally made me a convert! I was not a nail polish wearer at all. I OD-ed on it as a tiny child, as it was the only make-up I was allowed to wear and from the ages of 4-10 I always had my nails the point I noticed they were turning yellow. Since then it also felt funny to have anything on my nails, it was a psychological thing...Well, now look at me?  Miss Pop and her crazy cute nails cured me! So, XOXO to Miss Pop for getting me back to where I belong.

New Moon in Leo

14 days to flaunt your glamour.

Test shot #1. Not the most stunning start to L.G., but today slipped by fast...I thought I had more time to kill, waiting in the lobby of my friend John's office, and took this to see what I looked like -- but John came down lickity split and off we went to our evening of New Jersey extravaganza that culminated at Feathers to see SHARON NEEDLES perform!!!!

Since the heat killed my motivation to get up in punk/goth regalia to honor Sharon, I just clipped my black widow's rose hair clip and put on my blood drip choker, which you can barely see...Yes, my look is more frilly than fearful, but no matter, as my night ended on a very frightful note anyway -- while waiting for the PATH at 2:30 AM at the Harrison stop, a HUMONGOUS UNIDENTIFIABLE BUG crawled up my leg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VOMIT! GAG! VOMIT!

Funny thing was that I saw it earlier and kept checking for it, to make sure it wasn't on the bench, coming after me, but it was worse, crawling up my leg so surreptitiously, it didn't giving me much of a sensation --AHHHHHHHHHHH WTF. I flicked it off, right onto its back and watched all it's legs shimmy and shake. No, I didn't kill it...I know, I'm too much of a hippie to ever be totally punk.

(BTW, the Black Rose hair clip is made by Dollsville NYC. Amazing stuff!!! I almost died! If you are in NYC and go out, Laura also sells her stuff at Oh! You Pretty Things at Le Poisson Rouge -- where I met her! I also have the Pink Flamingo clip too--love them!!!! The great thing about it is you can look totally plain, then just pop one on and instant fanciness!)

Mercury goes direct in Leo


If you feel like you've been sitting in a big pile of poo since mid-July, it's because you have -- it's called Mercury retrograde and when it happens in Leo, like this time around, it means an extra side of drama to go with your lesson in humility.

Likely, these last few weeks have tossed you a few weird blows that made you have to reconsider something major, confusing you to no end. Well, the good news is that today, the misery will start to subside and whatever frayed edges you have left will start to straighten up, as set-backs you faced will work itself into a more linear manner and have you back on track by August 22, the day in which Mercury will return to the degree it was before it hit pause and reverse.... But whatever disasters that remain past that date will leave you with only yourself to blame, so work fast as of today to sweep those issues out the door and move ahead!

Venus enters Cancer

Feeling good from the inside out.

Image pillaged from dlisted.
We all have a needy baby inside of us, a persona that needs to be swaddled to death by security -- and unfortunately its not usually a side of us that we can control. The hairy beast comes out when it wants and when it does, it means surrendering to our vulnerabilities.


So, keep this in mind, as the ground will feel as if its bottoming out, making emotions go into overload and have you feeling as if you have to white knuckle the edges of your life to keep from falling. Sure, this can be an amazing experience, but it'll mean work and intensity -- so don't skip off into the rainbows cluelessly.

Bottom line: be on guard for freak outs from now until September 6, 10:48pm, as Venus (the planet that is all about the sweet), enters Cancer, the sign of sensitivity (on the positive, it means a powerful healer; on the negative, a self-centered victim) and can have you feeling as if your guts are exposed for all the world to see. However, who and what comes to your rescue, wait and see... The truth of who really has your back will get answered now. So buckle up, as you journey out, onto the spectrum of your emotions, blasting you off into reality in a majorly visceral way.

As for the areas in your life to take note of the emotional meltdowns and triumphs, here they are:

Aries: Family, home, and your integrity
Taurus: Community, siblings, and virtual associations
Gemini: Possessions, underlings, and teachers
Cancer: Idols, aspirations and intuition
Leo: Ancestry, karma and the past
Virgo: Your future, peers, and your humanity
Libra: Career, status and responsibilities
Scorpio: Truth, morals and idealism
Sagittarius: Money, secrets, and sexual conquests
Capricorn: Commitments, protocol, and opponents
Aquarius: Pets, obligation and health
Pisces: Children, love interests, and your ego
