Transits – October 16 to November 29, 2020: The Homestretch — The Stars Within Their Courses (Reblog)

We are finally near the end of 2020, which has been quite a year. The reason that this year has been so difficult is that we are in a time of transition. For more information about this transition, see: 2020 – An Earth-Shattering Year This year will culminate in a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction, which is also […]

2020 — Figuretry (Reblog)

October in its beauty carries a message of constant change. Everything that starts is, in the end, going to be replaced by something new. There are two things for certain: change and death. Death releases space and resources for a new generation of life. Time keeps going, even if we have stopped. Merciless ticking and […]

Deafening Mime

Photo by Luan Oosthuizen on Pexels.com

The mime artist confronts me,
lithe and contorting,
nuancing as best she can
with her eyes.
Masked and distanced,
her gestures rage out loud
and proud,
yet I do not understand,
I can’t even take her hand
to console, to reassure;
so now she’s rubbing her eyes
with feigned clenched fists
but the sorrow doesn’t translate;
such sobbing falls on deaf ears,
yet it screams to my soul:
She’s in her world, I’m in mine,
dimensions apart,
both of us born again infants
deprived of facial cues.

Books to Look Out for in August 2020: Part One — A life in books – Reblog

Publishing schedules are beginning to look much more tempting now that the worst of the pandemic-related slippage has worked its way through, at least let’s hope so. I like to kick off proceedings with a title that made my heart sing when I spotted it and this time it’s Sarah Moss’ Summerwater. From Names for […]

Comet Neowise and the Great Bear

The Wisdom of Our Grandmothers

A new comet has appeared in our skies this month. This comet was named Neowise, for the space telescope that first spotted it. She first came into our consciousness on March 27, 2020. At that point, she could only be seen by telescope. This comet spun around the Sun on July 3, 2020, and as always with comets, there was some uncertainty as to whether she would survive this passage. She did, and she is now visible in the Northern Hemisphere with the naked eye. She is the brightest comet we have seen in over 30 years.

Traditional View of Comets

Comets were seen as omens and harbingers of important events. Unfortunately, these events were usually tragedies. In most cases, they warned of famine, floods, invasions, war, plague, and things of that nature. They could also indicate the death of a…
