Astrology for August 21-27, 2016



I apologize for not posting a report last week. I felt like I needed some down time to do nothing. The week before last was busier than usual for me and on Saturday I went to a gathering to celebrate the life of my nearly, lifelong best friend, who transitioned last April. One of our dear friends welcomed us to his place in the country for a late afternoon potluck and remembering. I was accompanied by my oldest friend in the world and another nearly life long friend.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
