World Tapestry: From Mumbai 2008 to Las Vegas 2017

Mumbai, India Somewhere in the Sunday night blur of news on the October 1 Las Vegas attack, I heard a reporter make a one-time reference to the 2008 nights of terror in Mumbai. Perhaps the reference didn’t connect with others. For me, it stood out above all the rest even though I don’t even remember

Welcome to Jupiter in Scorpio!

UPDATE: Jupiter made ingress to Scorpio this week (on the 10th), and the words strike such a familiar chord for me. I hope you’ll find that to be true for you as well. Jupiter’s ingress for the USA took place on the 10th of October at 9:20:19 AM EDT (Washington, DC), the same day at

Minnesota Mosque Bombed – Had You Heard?

This past weekend the bombing of a mosque in Minnesota nearly escaped my attention. Thanks to CBS News for its reporting, I managed to catch a quick comment enough to have it embedded in my brain to search for it this morning before doing my work for the day. I don’t want this report to

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

The Man and The Maths: Srinivasa Ramanujan

Last week, quite by accident, I came across a movie I might not have even bothered to watch. But who can resist Dev Patel especially when you haven’t yet seen “Lion,” another flick I’ve been hoping to see soon? Filmed in India and the UK, the scenery alone was marvelous.

The World Tapestry: Pakistan – Solar Return 2016

Pakistan, as many of my readers know, has had a very rough journey going back at least 9 years to 2007. That’s not to say more wasn’t going on before that, rather it’s when I picked up on the need to start following this nation. Once a part of India, partition took place in August
