Cosmic Forecast, Aug. 16-Aug. 22

The New Cazimi Moon in Leo is on Friday, around 11:00 in the morning. Say goodbye to the lion. He’ll be on his way in one more week, when next we speak. Make the magique happen on Friday morn; or just dream about what’s around the next bend, from now ’til Zen. The closest word for Zen in our vocabulary would be “essence.” True magique exists around us at all times. Every once in awhile the veils part and “believers” get a glimpse of such infinite beauty… And then some of us will never believe to see. This be the truth, from Michael P.

Cosmic Forecast, Aug. 9-Aug. 15

Philosophically, we are the Maya. Perhaps the Maya were an errant tribe of Egyptians, if we consider having “divine” rulers and building pyramids as parallel cultural hallmarks. As an adopted member of Egyptian aristocracy, Moses (the Arian-Age avatar) would have been allowed access to the Egyptian mysteries. He would take that info and incorporate it into the Hebrew mysteries (such as the Zohar and the Qabalah), where it ultimately worked its way into our modern Judeo-Christian “His precious blood” cult ethic, perhaps presenting us with a Mayan human sacrifice parallel? Ring a bell, Pavlov? The two barriers confronting our modern psychological acceptance of the Maya would be their practice of human sacrifice and their image of Quetzalcoatl the Serpent…

Junk Food or Junk Fuel? Both are bad news.

Pushing their pipedream versions of renewable energy, energy independence and national security, Congress and the White House gave us the current law that subsidizes the ethanol industry (and others). It was called the Energy Policy Act of 2005. The disastrous results of that federal foray into capitalist cronyism include our current crisis surrounding ethanol production and the price of corn in the face of a Hundred-Year drought; just after facing last year’s Hundred Year flood.

With a field corn shortfall and crops failing at record pace, Congress is pretending they are actually doing something about it. There are rumblings in Washington of cutting back on the Federal mandate requiring more billions of gallons of ethanol to be dumped…

Healthcare with Legs

In showbiz, when a play or a movie has box-office longevity, we say it has “legs.” The same could be said for traditional medical therapies that have lasted for thousands of years. When we consider that early hunter-gatherers probably noted the good effects of some plants they ate and the bad effects of others, we can reason that herbology has roots (pun intended) going back at least two million years. And if the first human to soothe pain by rubbing where it hurts probably lived in a cave, it’s fair to say therapeutic massage predates buildings. Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, is over four thousand years old. Written descriptions of traditional medicine date back at least that far.

Cosmic Forecast, July 26-Aug. 1

Greetings, solar worshippers! Time to emerge from your domicile (ruled by Cancer) and/to catch the Sun’s smile. The Sun is finally in Leo. There are little details sprinkled throughout astrological lore, often rich in reflective wisdom. For instance, the sign of “Aquarius, the water bearer” isn’t actually a “water” sign. There’s often a truth hidden within such enigmas. One might wonder why the “season of the sun” (summer) would start with the sign of Cancer, which is ruled by the Moon. It’s because the Sun is too hot and powerful during Cancer, prompting us to stay indoors. So, now what’s your new/next excuse? We are now in the Year of the Dragon, which relates to Leo. Time to/for double…

Watermelon: Nature’s Gatorade and… Viagra?

Deep in the heat of summer with no relief in sight the body gets desperate for help. Look no farther than the humble watermelon to help you make it through the plight. With the temperature soaring and even the slightest exertion seeming to bring exhaustion, watermelon is the remedy to reach for in the heat. It can replenish and refresh and just might save your life by fighting off heat stroke. And the only side effects watermelon has are all good.

There are over a thousand varieties of watermelon, all of which trace back in some way to sub-Saharan Africa in origination. The most common varieties grown and consumed in the United States have a red, yellow or…
