I just logged on this thing for the first time in about a year. Wow, time DOES fly. Makes me wonder why I'm compelled to keep this thing and if I should even bother writing this silly little post since it will probably be another year till I post again.

PISCES (February 19-March 20): Please re-read last week's edition to receive a fuller context for this extraordinary week, Pisces. I could not choose for you a single better week for making massive change in your life. I understand, of course, many of you may be enduring massive changes you did not consciously or willingly select… and for that, I feel at once compassion for the emotional challenges which come along with having your hand pushed by the universe when you imagined yourself unprepared and faith that this will ultimately prove to be what's best for you. If you cannot presently touch this faith within yourself, don't worry; I will hold it for you. However, the sooner you can look forward rather than back, the better for your mental well-being. (Looking forward does not mean disrespectfully thumbing your nose at the past, daring to forget or ignore the people who have mattered and the experiences who made you who you are. It merely welcomes more new people and new experiences in, to continue your lifelong process of living.) For any of you who quiver on the brink of radical self-sovereignty, free from chains that hold you back or situations no longer suited to the butterfly eager to spread her/his wings, please oh please oh please go for it. The same advice about looking forward—into the vast unknown, with a terrified but gleeful grin—applies. Your best grounding tool in such circumstances is to get your thoughts out of the etheric vacuum of your brain, and put 'em into tangible words: talk to friends and strangers, write long honest emails you might or might not send, fill journal pages with every last worry clogging your head, and tell the relevant parties directly exactly what you're intending to do. Words make everything more real.

I'm kind of in a weird place right now. I feel shaky, both emotionally and physically but not at all in a bad way. Sort of like when a kid learns there is no Santa Clause but their parents are actually responsible for the big piles of awesome on Christmas Day. The illusion/delusion is broken but that doesn't make it any less kick ass. I'm being lead to see things in a new way and to be honest, I'm not really sure if I'm intellectually ready for it. I know Santa is not real, but it doesn't lessen my desire to believe in his jolly belly.

I have journals and blogs all over the place at the moment. A business blog, an art blog, writings on FetLife, and a pen and paper journal. There all serve a different purpose, but there are some things I need to record that I don't really have a place for, so I guess its back to LJ for a bit.

PISCES (February 19-March 20): Mars is spending a large portion of the next many months in your solar 5th, the house that's traditionally associated with love, along with other related topics like creative self-expression and your inner-child's sense of pleasure and play.

I went to a holiday soul music show tonight. Yeah, not in my usual repitoire of things to do on a Tuesday, but that's alright by me. Its something my boss had a hand in, so I went more to support his project than because it was something I was particularly intersted in (this will be disjointed, i've had wine, so follow with me Class). It was in a place called Tiny's. And yes, it was. An old house converted into a tavern. Apparently its an old haunt that's no longer hip with the kids. So I go, expecting, well, not really expecting much. I'd just have a beer, pretent to toe tap at meidocre music and then come home and curl by the fire. you walk in, and its very much like walking into your Anutie's house, the front palor is the bar area, the back is like the dinning room. And its decorated for christmas. Nutcrackers everywehre. Like over 100. Its about an inch away from being seriously creepy. There's mistloe, holly, christmas lights, Everything you'd expect at your Anutie's house, for the holidays, including a letcherous uncle or two at the bar. Topped off with pointsettia vinyl table clothes (you know the ones I'm talking about). And the Nutcrackers standing witness, not a part of the scene, not necesiarlly approving of it either. So I'm there in a corner, where I can only see about 40% of the back dining area where the band is set up. They play a tune or two and wow, they are good. A soul twist to holiday music. its good. They break for a few minutes, and one of my favoirte co workers pops around the corner. I protest but he pulls me in back to his table. Lo and Behold the table is full of about a dozen of our sales guys. Food and wine everywhere, I protest again, not wanting to make a fuss, but they crowd surf a chair over for me and make room. fill a plate and a glass. And the music starts again. We groove and clap and stomp feet like only middle class, middle americnas can. Dinner with these boys is like dinner with family, all your brothers and uncles. They take care of you, not to be polite, not to show off, but because you're family. (oh and sexy Tech Girl (name witheld to protect the innocent) whose panites (not the sexy kind, the utilitaira kind, not grannie panties) were just peeking abover her low cut jeans, oh how we all wanted to tuck them in for her... another story) So we're in Auntie's house, with family and what seems like a private soul concert (we really caon't see the rest of the bar from where we are so only the family exists) I'm impressed with the music. It was 'joy'. define joy and that's what was in the room. They sang from their hearts. no, from thier souls. a gift to the god they believe in burst from them and rained on us all. We were all joyful. I envy that some times, that pure bliss some achieve in worship in a higher power. sometimes I want it too and can't help but think i'm some how defecient because that is not a part of me. and oh yeah. I can't sing.
