Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

“Is it a dragonfly or a maple leaf / That settles softly down upon the water?” asks Amy Lowell in “Autumn Haze,” a poem from her book Pictures of the Floating World. She doesn’t need to know the answer to her question; either would be fine. In fact, the luxuriance of the moment lies in its ambiguity. The lolling sweetness thrives because of her freedom from having to define its origins. She is simultaneously alert and relaxed; attentive to the scene in front of her but content to let it be whatever it is. I highly recommend that you enjoy extended excursions into this state of being several times in the coming week.

Yep, little bit behind. Just noticed that I haven’t posted ANYTHING this month. Bad Freak! I guess you could say I’m in a bit of re-organization and reconsidering a lot of stuff for my business.

I need advertising and the prospect of moving to a better location seems to be a fantasy with a Monty Python foot stepping on it like a bug. It’s not just a problem of funding having overwhelming expectations to acquire, it’s the fact that locations have these out-of-the-universe expectations of businesses. The latest guaranty I’ve been told is $250k, because I’m a start-up. I guess the definition of start-up is now 10-years-old, not 5 and under. Not to mention, the company I acquired was over 10 when I gained it. So, in letting things be, I sent a request to the leasing rep for my current landlord, to check out a couple of offices in the same complex. If I can acquire a lease with one of those, then I’ll sink my money into advertising, instead of sinking my business into debt.

Then hopefully, the stress will lift, my therapists will have more work and everyone will be happy.

In a favorable review of Badger Mountain Riesling wine, Winelibrary.com said, “The sweet succulent aromas of bosc pears are woven with lilacs and just a hint of petrol.” Meanwhile, Allure magazine named Secretions Magnifique as one of the top five sexiest perfumes in the world, even though its fragrance is like “floral bilge.” Petrol? Bilge? Both commentaries seem to suggest that greatness may contain a taint — or even that the very nature of greatness may require it to have a trace of something offensive. I’m guessing that’ll be a theme for you in the coming week.

Hrm, great things tainted by something not-so-great. Yeah, I can see how that is going to apply in the coming weeks. Let’s see, job situation changing, A/C issues still at the forefront. The positive, is that I still have 4.5 years to sue my former boss (hear that J?). I’m keeping the reserves in check, to make sure that I can float for the next year. Downplaying the expectations for the new business space.

This will be another year of growth, for good or bad. It’s time.

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…
