Month: January 2008

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

One goal of meditation is to empty the mind of its obsessively generated thoughts, rationalizations, and images. Alas, much of the media functions as a reverse meditation machine. Not only does it stir up your own mental clatter, it also floods you with the seething surge of other people’s private pandemoniums. Furthermore, it delivers this rattling racket with entertaining words and brilliant color and crystalline sound, driving it as deeply into your psyche as your own flotsam. Keep this in mind throughout February, which is Clean Out Your Brain Month. Cut way back on your media intake. Snack lightly rather than gorging continually.

How amusing. Though, I think cleaning out my brain would be a good idea, not just in the media intake, but also in paring down the things that I have to pay attention to on a daily basis. Simplification, mostly in my schedule. Now to just get sleep.

For those of you who are interested, I just made one of my love letters public. If you wish to read it, it will be the 3rd post down, after this one, under my pronoia tag. Yeah, there’s some editing issues, but I’m feeling too lazy to fix them. 😉

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Internet pundit Ariana Huffington realized she was working too hard when she got so exhausted she passed out and broke her cheekbone on her desk. Resolved to give herself more slack, she decided to carry just two Blackberries with her at all times instead of the three that had been her constant companions. I request that you perform at least two similar acts of self-care in the coming week, Scorpio. They could come in the form of either eliminating complications, as Huffington did, or else adding luxurious treats. For example, you might want to arrange to be massaged in warm water by a team of charismatic healers singing you love songs and lullabies.

Well, outside of the fact that I can’t stand Huffington, it sounds like a good plan. Though, I’m voting for the luxurious treats, the complications are subsiding. 🙂

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Why does human anatomy include the organ known as the appendix? For centuries, doctors have been unable to determine its purpose. Most have decided it’s unnecessary, a vestigial structure left over from an earlier stage of evolution. But recent research suggests the conventional wisdom has to be revised. In fact, the appendix seems to protect and regenerate the good bacteria that live in the intestines. I predict that you’re on the verge of a metaphorically comparable discovery, Scorpio. Something you have always considered to be useless or irrelevant will reveal its value.

ponderous, really ponderous man. Now to figure out, which thing I’ve always considered useless or irrelevant will reveal its value.

Will have to think on that one….

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

“Dear Rob: Here are my New Year’s resolutions. (1) I vow to Siamese-twin together my bad-ass, no-hype, wide-eyed self with my tricky, strategic, puzzle-loving self. (2) I vow to rage on like a dancing warrior in the urban wilderness, keeping peak experiences and total slaphappy victory at the top of my priority list, while at the same time I play hide-and-seek with the dark delicious secrets that fuel my soul’s lust for wicked meaning. (3) I vow to deepen the collaborative efforts of my suck-out-the-marrow-and-spit-out-the-bones craziness and my listen-carefully-to-the-flow-of-the-underground-river caginess. -Double Intense Scorpio.” Dear Double Intense: Scorpios everywhere will benefit from hearing your resolutions, which is why I’ve made them 2008’s first horoscope.

While all my other horoscopes are telling me next year is all about giving of myself, I don’t think I’m in a spot to really do that, yet. Oh yeah, and the damned things talk about relationships…..

That said, I know I’m a few days late on this, but I’d like to thank everyone I got to see and talk to on NYE. I’ve missed you all very much and I’m sorry that my time was cut short. I hope the issues that came up were limited, as I was hoping to not involve as many people as possible. Yeah, I’ve got issues, compounded by the issues of other people. And eternalredneck, thank you. moonbird, tea-time, very soon. 🙂
