The Birth Of A Latte

Every few weeks or so I invite my dog, Glacier, to take a trip to recycling with me. She loves going anywhere in the car. I like going to the recycling depot where you can return everything all at once: pop cans, beer cans, liquor bottles, even dead electronic devices. After getting a few dollars back, I then stop at the nearby drive-through Starbucks and, it seems, spend everything I just received.

Scorpio Full Moon: Credit Cards and Taxes

Sometimes I laugh at how astrology can be so straightforward. Often when I find myself searching for subtleties in a chart, the astrology reveals something blatantly obvious — to which I respond with a profound “duh”.

Today, for example, there is a Full Moon in Scorpio, arriving at a time when I am re-evaulating how I handle credit cards. A Full Moon in Scorpio can be just that: an awareness of debt. I wonder how many others are considering their financial picture this week.

Taurus The Oak

If the bull were not the symbol for the second sign of the zodiac, I think the oak tree would make a fine substitute.

There is a wonderful old oak in my neighbourhood, strongly anchored in place on the corner of Alexandra Park by English Bay. Its presence is grounded and secure — like it has always been there and always will be. It endures our rainy winter without complaint, but at this Taurus time of the year, it comes alive with greenery once again.

Remembering Robert Blaschke

Perhaps we need to stop more to reflect on people who have been very meaningful in our life. I feel grateful that I had the chance to know Robert Blaschke, a brilliant astrologer and skilled teacher. Today would have been his 60th birthday, and I can’t help thinking how so many people do miss him. He had a very caring approach to his work with clients and students, and I’m sure that was true in his personal relationships as well.
