Harry Carey, Zorba the Greek, and a box of Cracker Jack.


Mars in Capricorn, Pluto in Scorpio, Uranus in Aries, and the Sun and Mercury in Libra! Holy cow and take me out to the ball game. I don’t care it I ever come back, as long as I can dance.

This continues to be one powerful moon cycle. Can the Cubs take the World Series? Has the curse of the goat been lifted? What about you? Do you think you’ll get a pony? Maybe the moon? Or does it seem your box of Cracker Jack is missing the prize?

Jupiter, with a heart bigger then life, magnified it all – the whole catsatrophe of living. Everything thing is bigger when it is magnified, opportunities and obstacles. So if you noticed it is a little dicey out there, there is good reason.

Electronics faltering, traffic lights failing, email problems, phone issues, never mind the madness it creates when you feel so disconnectedvor misunderstood. What’s up with all that? Remember deep ecology? That is what we are practicing here. Considering our lives from the cellular all the way out to the transversal.  This is not about astrology. This is about living your life in a world that is bigger then you think. It is so big, it  blows your mind. The good news is that sometimes it takes a shattered mind to really see things. You gotta come undone before you can put yourself together.

Where do you really fit in? Do you think you are suppose to fit in somewhere in particular? Is fitting in like finding a prize, if you don’t find it, you don’t fit in?  That is like living in a box.  There are only so many options in a box and usually boxes contain options that are similar.  In a box, you reduce your opportunities. This week consider that the abundance of the “disconnect” that is out there right now, may be of service to you. The fact that you are misunderstood might empower you to embrace the full catstrophe of your life. You might be able to adopt an outlook under these conditions that embodies awe and curiosity for the rich mess of life.  You might find that riding that unpredictable roller coaster ride with all its dilemmas, sorrows, joys, traumas, tragedies, and ironies, is living your life.

Love life.  All all of it, the full catastrophe of it. Don’t fake it like a sentimental greeting card.  Really love it.  Be courageous and love it.  Have a little of that vibration that in language is, “to hell with it all, let’s dance.”  Living your life is the ultimate of living life.

Not sure how to do it?  Start by breathing in for 4, hold for 2, and exhale for 6.  First, let yourself be fully alive in your own breath and then ask your self, “What do I want to do now?”  Now, go do it!!!

In the midst of what you see as problematic, it can be difficult to recognize the opportunities. I can help you discover a new way of thinking that will assist you in managing and negotiating life’s obstacles. You will find that this new way of thinking provides you opportunities that you hadn’t previously noticed as well as affords you the confidence and desire to live your life in the driver’s seat.
