Disimprisionment (Repost)

[ I originally posted this in December of 2010. It ages so well, I decided to repost it. ] Do you know the difference between the words discreet and discrete?

The Hermits

Picture the scene. A wide valley sits within and is completely surrounded by tall mountains. During spring, when the air is often clean and clear, and when the sunny days outnumber the rest, the valley is lush and green. Those who live in this valley love that time of year.

We all know that an incision is when something is cut into. Think of it this way: in (in or into) - cision (cut). Decision, when we… Continue reading Decision

More on The Chariot

Sometime yesterday afternoon, I heard what felt like a question someone was asking (or might ask) regarding yesterday’s post: “What does it mean to let the Universe drive?” If yesterday’s post wasn’t helpful to you, the answer to the above question might be.

The Chariot

There is a bumper sticker out there that I really enjoy. I haven't seen it in a while, but it goes like this: "Get in. Sit down. Shut up. And hold on."

Fixity

The Fixed signs of the Zodiac always occur in the middle of each season. Aquarius, where both the sun and moon are today, is thus the middle of winter (or summer down under). Weather-wise, the fixed sign is when the weather is most seasonal, and this year feels more like winter than any I've had… Continue reading Fixity
