Manchester, We Mourn With You – May 22, 2017

“Music,” it’s said, “soothes the savage beast.” And if some 20000 who attended the nearly packed Manchester Arena last night in the United Kingdom had been able to tell you after the show was over, perhaps all but one of them might have believed that old, misquoted adage. As I write, the toll is at 22

Who Needs the Soaps?

I used to think the drama of a few daily soaps on TV made real life carry a bit less of the “wow!” factor. That’s what got me hooked on two soaps several years ago–and they still catch my attention in particular when I’m home. It doesn’t really matter if a month of soap opera

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 3 of 3

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 2 And now the Pluto station to Retrograde for the United Kingdom… With Leo rising, the Sun rules the Pluto SRx chart from its 9th house conjunction to Mercury Rx. Neither it nor Mars are really at the

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 2 of 3

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 In contrast to the crash chart from earlier in the day, this one had a clearly Eastern first quadrant below-the-horizon dominance. At first, I was baffled about this kind of dominance since the action was happening to my 16-yo co-traveler and me; but then it hit me: I

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 of 3

Sometime around Easter, I had promised someone I’d write about the Pluto Retrograde that took place on Thursday the 20th of April. But as the saying goes, the best laid plans of mice and men–or, as Robert Burns wrote in “To A Mouse”… While the narration may seem a bit convoluted, there is method to

Neither Déjà Vu Nor a Love Story, Part 3 of 3

One more chart now with very minimal analysis: While I don’t ordinarily work with Transpluto, at times it bears watching. That’s especially true with these charts. We began at Venus, but the attacks clearly weren’t about love and the ideal woman, and that’s where I found Robert Wilkinson‘s comments about Transpluto highly significant in his 2014

Neither Déjà Vu Nor a Love Story, Part 2 of 3

Link to Part 1 Nirbhaya The Times of India carried one of countless stories appearing in the news both nationally and internationally. This one ran with the headline, Delhi gang rape case: Cops got first clue from CCTV of hotel. National rage, however, quickly turned global, and sympathetic protests were launched in several other nations. Since

Neither Déjà Vu Nor a Love Story, Part 1 of 3

May 8, 2016: The date is no mistake. In fact, I normally don’t post the date when I’m developing a new article. This time, the date on which I began to write this article is important: Mother’s Day 2016. It’s now a week later. It’s been another green rainy day, and I’m finally preparing to put

The World Tapestry: Charges In The Flint Water Crisis

Regardless of where you are in the world, by now most of you know about the water crisis in Flint, Michigan because it could happen to any and all of us. As this crisis has gone on, so has another water crisis around the world in India so I suppose I’ve been following both with

Tragedy in Texas Today

The headline was clear enough, but I didn’t see enough to know what was happening there. I only remembered the last time I heard about shootings on a military base in Texas. It was in 2009. So while I don’t always write this brief of an article especially in what’s still considered an active situation,
