i Folks! Spring has Finally

happened on

March 20th, 2019 at 2:58 pm. PST and happy Zodiacal New Year as well! Our first sign Aries is out of the gate. But the ram, usually the act -now- talk- later of the

family doesn’t

seem to be doing his bolt of wild abandon. Funnily, we seem to be moving – not nec- essarily slowly - but deliberately. Many of our near and far planetary


are in earth and wa- ter signs as well as Mercury being ret- rograde. This offers fire-sign-intelligence a chance to slow up a little and check his footing. It’s going to be a very inter- esting year. Chinese astrology wise we are in the year of the Brown Pig. Pigs are sensual intelligent beings and contrary to popular belief left to their own devices, are quite cozy, fastid- ious home mak- ers. So, this could mean an experi- ence, collectively, of a returning to some “basic fam- ily values.” Now what

does that

mean? That term is often thrown into the conver-

sation on the tail of a rant of some kind; followed up by a reference to “it’s just common sense”. Elementally


I think it is about achieving meaningful connection- tak- ing the TIME to to-and-fro with one another

eventually at some common ground.

Currently speaking this

might mean leaving our cell phones off during dinnertime with or without our family or partners (we will personally


try to accomplish this.) This may even translate to shutting it off in restaurants or leaving them home one day a week. The pebble drops in the water and spreads out- starting slow from center and picking up

and your slightly low right front tire. Now the reason that I bring

up this analogy is I have an Aries moon and I am also a storyteller. Sometimes it takes me for eeeeevvvvver! to get to

the” point”. In

my ++ years I have comically learned to heed this inner tar- baby - struggle with results that


and family claim is entertaining. But it’s all part of the wild rumpus road, right? Now if you would

like to locate Aries as a house or planet, the internet is such a valued piece

of momentum. Te reason I

choose Siri over Alexa is because she is like

comfort food, like going to

Grandmas house for...

This is particularly tough chewing for the Aries in us all who left dinner a long time ago and is almost through the Netflix movie and answering email. But, as you are reading this in the early part of April, try and keep a bit of patience. This is a difficult task for you (or that aspect of you un- der the influence of this fire sign) There is a nice payout to befall you this month, or it may have happened in the last few days.

Like Brer Rabbit facing that tar baby on a log (a concoc- tion of Brer Fox and Brer Bear to catch up their hot -headed friend.) when it didn’t answer any of the questions that Brer Rabbit was asking provoking him to … completely loose it and “pitch” a fit if you will. Eventually you would be able to free yourself but you ‘ll be a hot tired mess and for what? Point being instead of looking at the tar baby see the tar baby, see your dinner companions

equipment for data like this. You can easily

enter your

DOB, time and location to re- veal where aspects are in your chart and then ask Siri to find you that information. Like a falling star traversing the sky above you at 10 pm at night the information will come to your device.

The reason I choose Siri

over Alexa is because she is like comfort food, like going to Grandmas house for any- thing that she made and the love that she poured into her cooking. It would warm your tummy even before you made it to her home. And that’s fam- ily values. This year the transition to

the lovely Taurus will be a lit- tle less obvious as all of this luxurious slowness is right up their pasture one might say. But it’s always a great pleasure when they arrive, so happy birthday all of you four legged bulls rams and pigs. You make it look so good that this two-legged

might you for a drop and- roll. join April 27, 2019
