Cosmic Forecast, July 21-July 27

We are in the last days of the most introverted of signs (Cancer), traveling into the most extroverted of signs (Leo). Time to externalize what you’ve internalized since June 21st. He or she who never meditates is destined to a life of darkness. He or she who only meditates is destined to a life of greater darkness. Time to share the fruits of your inner world. Time to shine from within and share what you’ve learned/become from who you are and where/what you’ve been…once you’re ready. Look up Buddha Boy and/to learn that peace and love shall conquer all, and that there are no mistakes. It all starts within.

Must Be the Season of the Itch

 

Summertime is peaking and there’s a chance that you, like 500,000 other Americans, will enjoy the park or a picnic and return home with a friend. Her name is Ivy. Her victims call her Poison.

Contact dermatitis is her gift to you. It’s the result of touching the oily toxins in a trio of plants named poison ivy, poison sumac and poison oak. Though each is a different plant, all have something in common. They contain urushiol (pronounced oo-roo-shee-ohl) in their sap. Urushiol is among the planet’s most toxic substances. It likely won’t kill you (though it can,) but you might wish you were dead. As little as one-billionth of a gram of urushiol can cause…

Cosmic Forecast, June 30-July 6

Happy 4th of July weekend! God bless AMERICA! I’ve been all around this world and everybody wants to live here. True, some of them want us dead first, but this fertile land is — and will be — destined to birth the Aquarian Age. Trust me. Look around you. These United States are where the tribes are meeting. Happy birthday, USA! Let’s get back to fulfilling our promise — our REAL destiny. Peace and love shall conquer all. There are no mistakes.

Cosmic Forecast June 23-29

 

Welcome to the summer season, initiated by the sign of the universal mother, Cancer the Crab. Cancers are of the most sensitive of signs. The key phrase for the sign is “I hold onto.” That’s what the BIG CLAWS are for. Grudges, money, (in)security, a love that’s already met its quota and should’a been gone a long time ago. How does the MOJO know?

 

CANCER (6.22-7.22)  Please read the intro for any clues. You’re at least a week away. Early next Friday morning, on July 1st, is the New Moon/Solar Eclipse in your sign. ’Til then, it’s time to clean up the pad! After that,…

Cosmic Forecast, June 16-June 22

Happy Summer Solstice, everybody! On next Tuesday, June 21st, the Sun enters the sign of Cancer at lunchtime. How appropriate. The sign of Cancer rules the stomach. You are what you eat; yet maybe it’s not food you seek. Here comes more heat, more rain and more humidity. Stay cool and work against the (over) flow. Instead, get right and travel light. Peace and love shall conquer all. There are no mistakes. MOJOPOPlanetPower.com c GEMINI (5.21-6.21) Why are you here? Where did you come from? Why did you come here to/on Earth? What does it all mean? Too heavy, or too beautiful? It’s always 50/50 with you, right? One more week to think, and then it may/will…

Superfoods Made Simple

Google “superfoods” and you’ll come up with almost as many lists as the internet has web pages. There is no definition of what a superfood is, but at least the European Union knows what it isn’t. EU law prohibits using the term “superfood” on any label attached to a food that has not been shown by independent scientific study to have an established medical benefit. So unless a food cures a certain condition, it doesn’t qualify in Europe. If only the Internet was ruled by such a clause. On the internet, one can find so-called superfoods that carry all sorts of health claims, from flatter tummies to healthier hearts. And the search results include some pretty exotic names. Boku Juice,…

The Best Baseball in Town

The blue and white sign out front of Zesto’s said they had the “best cheeseburgers in town.” It never really mattered whether this was true or not. What mattered was that hundreds of thousands of visitors to Rosenblatt Stadium every summer for the College World Series saw that sign and could believe it. The advertising seemed honest because the advertising was old. Perched just south of the stadium entrance, Zesto’s looked like small-town America. There were picnic tables out front and walk-up windows nearly papered over with handwritten signs advertising dip cones and sundaes. Little more than a shack, it looked like the sort of place people want the best burgers in town to come from. Rosenblatt Stadium wasn’t much…
