Cosmic Forecast, Dec. 1-Dec. 7

Happy December. Mercury is retrograde ’til after the 13th. Try not to sign or commit to anything, and try to keep your sense of humor ’til after then. That’s my/our Zen ’til we meet again… Your friend, MOJOPO

i SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.21)  Philosophers, wanderers, panhandlers, world travelers, mysteries of the universe unravellers. Teachers, disseminators, composers, navigators, emancipators, ramblers, gamblers. Prophets and loss, oblivious to the cost. Walt Disney, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Bugs Bunny, Jane Fonda. Renew, research and review your past while holding onto your tongue ’til after Mercury retrograde’s last gasp is done, on December 13th. We suffer more from what comes out of our mouths than what goes into ’em. Listen/hear what I…

Such Great Heights

Something special has happened at Morrison Stadium this fall. Back when summer was ending the Creighton men’s soccer team was expected to be very good.

Now with winter beginning – and the Jays one win away from the program’s fourth appearance in the College Cup – Creighton might be considerably better than “very good.” Creighton might be great.

That’s what we’ll find out Saturday afternoon at Morrison Stadium when the second-seeded Jays host No. 7 South Florida with a trip to college soccer’s version of the Final Four on the line. It is likely the biggest home game in program history.

Creighton has reached these heights before, making the College Cup in 1996 and 2000…

Cosmic Forecast, Nov. 24-Nov. 30

Thanksgiving is a counting of heads past the sign of the great death, Scorpio. More beings leave their bodies during Scorpio than any other sign. Since the beauty of astrology implies reincarnation, let’s wish pleasant journeys to the departed souls and say congratulations to those still embodied, who can still accomplish anything they (can) dream.

i SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.21)  I know you’re chomping at the bit, but you gotta wait a month, and that’s it! Mercury just retrograded at 20 degrees Sagittarius on the New Moon in Sagittarius, around midnight on Thanksgiving, particularly affecting Sagittarians born around December 10th. In addition, your ruler Jupiter finally moves direct on Christmas Day. Did you hear the one about…

Bugs in Your Body

You’re only one-tenth the person you think you are. The vast majority of the cells that make up your body are not human. You thought your body was your own, eh? You think you’re one hundred percent human, right? Oh, sure, every once in a while a minor bacterial or viral species may cause a problem but you just attack that population with antibiotics, antivirals or some immune system booster and it’s back to business as usual.

The laughable reality is that you don’t own your body if you simply go by population numbers. If squatters’ rights existed, your body would be the property of the hundred trillion foreign cells that make up the physical terrain known as…

Language No Barrier Now

The most difficult adjustment was being away from family, of course. Seung Hoon Choi left home in Seoul, South Korea when he was 14-years-old.

The next most difficult adjustment for Choi was communication, the English language. That required the better part of two years. “I didn’t know what was going on, so I just sat in the class every day, just stare at teacher, try (to) figure out what she’s saying, what he’s saying,” said Nebraska’s junior offensive guard.

The classes in which he sat were at Lincoln Christian High School. Because he couldn’t speak the language, he avoided classmates. “I didn’t want them to ask me questions,” Choi said.

Once he made some friends, however,…

We Live by Our Words

“What are words for? When no one listens, what are words for?” So hiccupped Dale Bozzio in 1980 as I stood watching her and my friend Terry Bozzio in their rehearsal studio on Robertson Boulevard in Beverly Hills. They had just formed a band named Missing Persons and Terry invited me to produce their first studio recordings.

Decades before Gaga and years before Madonna, Dale Bozzio was onstage wearing clear plastic “C-cups” with outré costumes and hair. Her taut, tight little body was the lure but the meat in the music was the virtuoso drumming and guitar playing backing thoughtful lyrics carved by drummer-husband Terry.

After a song or two that night, I made a fateful comment.…

Cosmic Forecast, Nov. 17-Nov. 23

Last week of Scorpio. Study the mysteries of life and death, sex and regeneration, magique and elimination — the realms of Scorpio. Scorpio, the sign that rules death, is not the last sign. This cycle placement in/of astrology would imply that death is not the/our end. “I’ll see you in the next one, and don’t be late,” from Sagittarian/Scorpio cusp voudou childe, Jimi Hendrix. “Fly on. Fly on.”
