Small Business

Small Business

Thinking about the nature of small business—small, generally, means human-scale; as opposed to BIG business, which means corporate.  We’re ALL small business, which means that our component parts are contained within our bodies and our lives.  Each of us has...
Matters That Matter

Matters That Matter

The Sun moves into Scorpio today: the second month of the social signs.  We shift from “We are” to “We have”—which is all about common values.  What are they?  Where do we meet on matters that matter to all of us?  Figuring that out is likely to...
Manifesto

Manifesto

You have no limits.  There, I think I’ll say that again.  No limits. There is literally nothing stopping you—not money, not class, not circumstances, not colour nor creed.  And especially, no accident of birth: everything you need is there to give that...
Mad About The Method

Mad About The Method

People ask me, “Why should I get my chart done?  How does it work, and what will it help me to see/learn about myself?”  I have been passionate about astrology for 52 years, so here’s a recent (if long-winded) answer: A chart is calculated for the exact moment in...

Musical Chairs

Hope Chest

Hope Chest

Call me crazy, but I love folding linens.  Smoothing the sheets, matching the pillowcases, tucking the fitted sheets into manageable squares, wrapping the whole into stackable bundles and then stashing them in their closet…order.  Somewhere deep in my soul,...
