Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

For the foreseeable future, it’s fine with God (and with Nature, too) if you put all your eggs in one basket — as long as the basket is well-woven and beautiful to behold. You’ve also got cosmic permission to forget about all but one of the tempting targets in your field of vision — as long as the bull’s-eye you choose is very worthy of your sacred longing. To sum up, Scorpio, be single-mindedly focused almost to the point of manic obsession — as long as you’re reasonably sure that the object of your devotion is your personal version of the Holy Grail.

Now this, is worth meditating over, for the next week. I am feeling the “stir the pot” machinations and I’m loving it. It’s time to stop stagnating, and time to move forward. Lots of ideas swirling around, just need to get off my ass and get them done.

Will write more on this later….I hope.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

How’s that project coming, Scorpio? You know, that assignment the universe gave you at the beginning of 2010 to loosen up, play more, and periodically laugh like a tipsy Sagittarius. Have you been taking a sabbatical from the seething complications that in most other years are your rightful specialty? Did you throw some of your emotional baggage off a cliff? Are you dancing more frequently? I hope you’ve been attending to all of this crucial work, and I trust that you’re primed to do even more of it during the next six months. To take maximum advantage of your appointments with relief and release, you’ll have to be even sweeter and lighter.

Ummmmm, I forgot about it???? Yeah, all that crap that was dumped on me, over the last couple of months kinda pulled the plug on that whole “having fun” concept. Not to mention, kinda hard to have fun when the cheapest method of transportation = heat stroke right now. The emotional baggage is getting ready to go, because I’m finally at the point of acceptance of one thing that needs to go. That hint has been heard loud and clear.

Thanks for the reminder.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

I’m guessing that you’ve been ushered into a frontier that affords you no recognizable power spot. It probably feels uncomfortable, like you’ve lost the inside track. And now along comes some wise guy — me — who advises you in his little horoscope column that you are exactly where you need to be. He says that this wandering outside the magic circle is pregnant with possibilities that could help you make better use of the magic circle when you get back inside at a later date. I hope you will heed this wise guy and, at least for the moment, resist the temptation to force yourself back into the heart of the action.

FreeWill Astrology

Why yes, it does feel a bit uncomfortable. If there’s one thing I’ve discovered, there’s no use in forcing an issue…particularly when you’re pushing against solid rock and you don’t have dynamite – just a chisel. At which point, you need to be patient if you plan to make a hole with said chisel. Do I like it? Fuck no and being in this position, the way I am kinda pisses me off. Mainly, because this has been a commonplace position for way too long and the moment for the move to the aggressive position has not opened up. Though, it would be staved off if people had a concept of paying on time, and doing things when they were asked to do them…but that would be a totally different post.

The positive, is that I have a new phone number for my business, which will reduce my phone bill back into the double digits. A basic website that at least gets my name out there, until I can afford the full package deal with search capabilities. This weekend I’m going to attempt to upload the calendar function to my personal webspace so I can at least get that back to my current clients.

I’ve been doing everything I can to minimize my need for cash out-flow, and about that only thing that succeeds in doing, is reducing my in-flow. I don’t get it.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

If you have been engaged in any S&M scenario, even metaphorically, now would be a good time to quit it. Whether you’re the person who’s whipping or being whipped, the connection is no longer serving any worthy purpose. The good news is that freeing yourself from compromising entanglements will make you fully available to explore new frontiers in collaboration. You will also be blessed with an influx of intuition about how to reconfigure bonds that have become blah and boring. And what if you’re not currently involved in any S&M scenario? Congrats! Your assignment is to transform one of your pretty good relationships into a supercharged union that’s capable of generating life-changing magic.

FreeWill Astrology

I wish it wasn’t true, but unfortunately I’m engaged in the usual S&M scenario, where I’m beating myself up. And no, there is no purpose to the situation.

It’s all about trust…

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

“I want to be everywhere at once and do everything at the same time,” writes one of my Scorpio readers, J.T. He’s in luck, because according to my analysis, your tribe is about to enjoy a phase much like what he describes. “No more of this linear, one-day-at-a-time stuff,” he continues. “I want a whole week packed into each 24-hour turn of the earth, with heavy doses of leisure time interwoven with thrilling bouts of hard, creative labor. I want to live in a secret garden with ten years of solitude and hang out at a street fair raging with conviviality. I want to sing with angels and romp with devils in between walking the dog, exercising at the gym, and chatting to perfectly ordinary people. I want enough money to fill a swimming pool, and I want to live like there’s no such thing as money.”

FreeWill Astrology

I kinda feel like this already. Since spending two glorious weeks unwinding, everything seems to be working as it needs to. Have had a few issues to address, but this next week begins the summer phase. I’m planning on getting back to Judo and Jiu Jitsu, eating right, going for a run/walk/bike every other day and be more social. I’ve decided to take a step back from worrying about business monies. Figuring out how I can do my personal pay in a manner that is beneficial to me, yet keeps enough money in the account to take care of everything that’s needed. I’m almost done with the major stuffs on the condo, except the actual renovations (but those can happen as they need, since everything else is in place). So I can spend more time in a vacuum of timelessness.

Oh yeah, camping trip for the Solstice with the family, prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Developing a class on Celtic warriors, training and tactics – should be fun. Gotta crack the books on the Fianna and Scathach. 😀

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

It’s quite possible that the nature of consciousness is in the midst of a fundamental transformation. The human race seems to be getting more empathetic, more compassionate, and even more psychic. Many of us are having experiences that were previously thought to be the province of mystics, such as epiphanies that give us visceral perceptions of the interconnectedness of all life. Even as some traditional religions lose members and devolve into cartoony fundamentalism, there are ever-increasing numbers of intelligent seekers who cultivate a more discerning spiritual awareness outside the decrepit frameworks. If you haven’t been on this bandwagon, Scorpio, now’s a good time to jump on. If you’re already on board, get ready for an accelerated ride.

FreeWill Astrology

Kinda funny…I downloaded Celestine Prophecy the other day, watched it twice. Definitely a campy movie, and while I get the points trying to be made during it…..it was kinda funny in how it wasn’t really an adventure that grabbed the viewer and pulled them in. Kept things quite separate. Decent movie on paper….

House stuff is still going, the Italian mafia met me there yesterday to inspect the work of the non-Italians. He was impressed the unit is still functioning, but said it’ll probably have to be replaced before winter, as next winter will probably be colder than this winter (it’s operating at 60%, and according to him it’s too small for my unit). Good for me, in that winter is almost over, and if trend continues from last year, I probably won’t have to turn on the A/C this summer. Parents are packing all the stuff to bring me, including stuffs for psychosu and moonbird (and yes, we need to do tea, if I can ever wake up early enough). I spent most of yesterday window shopping, to try and get ideas for stuff I like, plus catch-up/paint shopping with psychosu. I do have some posters I’m going to be getting rid of, as well as poster frames. If anyone needs something like that, please let me know. They’re in great shape and I’d hate to have to throw them away.

I went to my first Judo class on Tuesday, I’m still sore, in all the right core places. Tonight is Jiu Jitsu, which I can’t wait to get back to training. My goal is to be back to smaller tournaments by the end of the year, Pan-Ams and Nationals next year, European nationals and Worlds the year after. I’m hoping to get back to Denmark this year too, miss the place. Love going to France, but definitely miss Denmark, and need to hop over to Sweden and back up to Norway. I think next year, I’ll see if I can get back to Tuska in Finland. Of course, that all depends on Pastry’s travel restrictions, but we have to get to that point first.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Some Scorpios bring out the worst in people. Other Scorpios draw out the best. Then there are those members of your tribe who sometimes bring out the worst in their fellow humans and other times bring out the best. Where do you fit in this spectrum? Regardless of your position up until now, I’m betting that in the coming months you’ll be moving in the direction of bringing out more of the best. And it all begins now. To get the process underway, think of five people you care about, and visualize the wonderful futures that it might be possible for them to create for themselves.

FreeWill Astrology

Aiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!! Right now, I’m willing to say I’m somewhere in the middle. I’m too fucking stressed to care about the best/worst in others. In fact, I have a few choice words for a few to help them in deciding which direction I’m going with them. Normally, I’m willing to say I bring out the best, because I do encourage people to make changes they think are needed, or give them the cheer to keep them going.

With that in mind, Chase bank can kiss my shiny white German-Irish ass. They have no concept of communication, and I’ve been going through this process for over 2 weeks now, and the other night – yes night – they FINALLY update me, saying they either need more gift money or I need to file my taxes. Yep, file my taxes, give up the $6k-ish credit for buying said house, and kiss the expansion of my business good-bye. I said no. I told them I was willing to get paperwork to them from my Accountant to show what was being filed for 2009, but I would not authorize the filing until the purchase is over. Nor would I give them $20k as a down payment on a $67,500 (edit: just got an email, $18k down payment, they didn’t ask for paperwork from my accountant). So, I’m stressing, big time. The nice thing, is that I’ve restarted the process with another bank, they’re talking with my accountant, they’re communicating with me on a daily basis and not giving me half stories. But still, I’m having panic attacks. Too much crap going on and too much room for shit to hit the fan. I need a vacation, but I can’t leave because I close on the 12th, then I have to do the renovations. The good thing, is my parents are coming to help me move and renovate, my designer kicks ass and is going over my ideas and pricing them out for me. The Italian Stallion is going to check out my HVAC and see if it can be fixed or how much it will be to be replaced. As soon as things are done, going to drag psychosu to Home Depot, whether she likes it or not, to pick out paint and vent back and forth on various crap we’re dealing with, and get JudoFredy to take a look at the floors and see what we can do, and go shopping for those. *sigh* I need to break someone.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Happy Valentine Daze, Scorpio! After meditating on what advice would best serve your love life, I decided to offer you the words of psychologist Carl Jung: “The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.” As I see it, my dear, acting on Jung’s wisdom will help you carry out your primary task in the coming months, which is to bring novel experiences and fresh perspectives to your most engaging relationship. The best way to accomplish that is not with non-stop serious talk and intense analysis, but with a generous dose of playful improvisation and experimental fun.

FreeWill Astrology

Sounds pretty much how I see it. There’s a time for serious discussions, but I’ve always been more of a fan of letting things uncover themselves as I go along. I find it’s more fun and keeps things more engaging.

As for the ‘update of the week’, not much going on. Need to call my lawyer and inspection team this afternoon to set up appointments and find out fees and whatnot. Not stressing over that anymore because I just made a priority list and left it at that. Mentally, I’m doing pretty good, thanks to a good conversation yesterday, my nightmares should be gone, least, I haven’t had a negative thought in that direction since then. Spent all yesterday in my PJs with season one of Fraggle Rock. Seeing that made me wonder why the hell no one has broken it out for the ‘modern kid’. I think that stuff is much better than some of the bs they have on TV these days for kids.

I’m disappointed with NBC, they’ve blocked access of their Olympics coverage for basic internet users, unless you want to watch the ‘highlight’ propaganda. Otherwise, you have to have IPTV or a cable subscription. Sad, as this is something I’d pay for, but they don’t offer that option.

Headspace? Doing pretty good, gearing up for vacation, trying to take it easy and work on the contract ideas I have in my head to get the business rolling.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)


Last week was the anniversary of my very first weekly horoscope column, which appeared years ago in the Good Times, a newspaper in Santa Cruz, California. My initial effort was crude and a bit reckless compared to what I eventually learned to create. And yet it was imbued with a primal fervor and heartfelt adventurousness that had a certain charm, and many people seemed to find it useful. Today I bow down to that early effort, honoring it for the seed it sprouted and thanking it for the blessings it led to. I encourage you to do something similar to what I just described, Scorpio: Pay homage to the origins that made it possible for you to be who you have become.

FreeWill Astrology

Hrm….keeps with the season of things! More to think upon for later. 😀

Scorpio (October 23-November 21):

Comedian Chris Rock has a joke that plays on the stereotypes about your sign: “Most Scorpios die while they’re making love!” (Only he uses the f-word instead of “making love.”) I understand the source of his satire. There are more than a few grains of truth in the notion that Scorpios revel in the enigmas of eros and death. On the other hand, I wouldn’t reduce your mystique to such a simple formula. I’d prefer to say something like this: You’re sexy when you’re letting go of your staunch self-control. Or: You’re an expert at transcending humdrum modes of awareness by stimulating intense pleasure. Or: If fully harnessed, your orgasmic power could kill off any destructive compulsions you might be harboring. And by the way, 2010 will be one of the best years ever for you to cash in on these capacities.

FreeWill Astrology

Interesting. I’ll ponder it more while driving tomorrow.
