Cosmic Forecast, Jan. 24-30

Now to the children of the jungle comes the European emissary Hernán Cortes, representing the Piscean avatar, the “Prince of Peace” — an incarnation of Vishnu/divine love. It happens to be 1519, and the Amerindians have been expecting the return of their bearded Quetzalcoatl — also an incarnation of Vishnu/Venus/Tlaloc. Everyone was right! Avatars don’t have to be — and aren’t usually — received and interpreted as their followers expect them to be. That’s part of what makes them magique…and somehow, magically, it all works out! —K’uhl Mut(i) Ahau.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

It’s going to be an early spring. I’m not a meteorologist but remember Dylan’s words: “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” Plants and animals have an innate weather forecaster that’s readily observed and recent past points to an early growing season. Plants are blooming sooner than ever and squirrels aren’t hiding their nuts with such a stubby winter.

In case you haven’t noticed, it hasn’t rained much in these parts the last couple years. Snowfall this winter was hardly worth the “snow emergency” scam the city fathers perpetrated, generating a $36,000 windfall in parking tickets in the process. Fifty-degree days in January aren’t supposed to be so common.

We’re deep in…

Cosmic Forecast, Jan. 17-23

Let’s take it back to the “Primitive Beauty.” The media hype surrounding the “end of the world” had/has it all wrong. (Whatever sells, right?) The focus of the Aztec, Mayan and Incan culture’s galactic synchronicity around December 21st-23rd should have emphasized not the end — but rather, a/the new beginning. I can feel it. Before the Iron-Age conquistadors smashed through the Bronze-Age weapons of the Mesoamericans’ culture, they were not just a group of native spearchuckers. Instead, they were the greatest mathematicians/astronomers of all time. Let’s meditate on the primitive beauty ’til the Europeans show up in the picture next week — when once again, we speak. —K'uhul Mut Ahaw

Spagyric: Making Your Own Medicine

Estimates say that up to 90 percent of pharmaceutical drugs owe their origin to plant and herbal remedies that have been in use for millennia. Using reductionist science — the questionable skill of tearing apart natural substances to isolate what modern scientists call “active ingredients” — Big Pharma produces potent versions of medicines that often cause more harm than good. Disrespecting the holistic nature of healing, modern science extracts isolated chemicals that can be patented for profit. Yet there is a way to optimize the healing potential of natural substances without compromising their innate characteristics. That method is the ancient art of alchemy using the Spagyric process. Big Pharma doesn’t do it that way but you can make medicinal…

Preseason Favorites on a Roll

Seismic shifts in conference alignment have been rocking college athletics over the past few seasons, and it appears likely that Creighton could get caught up in the shift. Speculation has been running wild around the Creighton program in recent weeks regarding the Jays’ future conference plans.
Last month the presidents of the 7 Catholic colleges that compete only in basketball in the Big East Conference elected to defect and form their own league. DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, Seton Hall, St. Johns, and Villanova are expected to add either 3 or 5 teams to their ranks, with Creighton’s name high on the list of potential new members.

The timing has never been better for Creighton to…

Cosmic Forecast, Jan. 10-16

Happy Cazimi New Moon in Capricorn, at 1:44 in the afternoon (Omax time) on Friday the 11th. Very lucky; especially for Capricorns and Libras, old people, old rich people, yogis and yoginis, Tantrikas, bosses, fathers and very horny old goats! How’s your little “goatee”? We’ll see…?

j CAPRICORN (12.22-1.20)  Are we having fun yet? Well, for you, Zippy, the fun’s just begun! You’re on a run to seize the Sun, just caught by the Capricorn Cazimi (which means “Heart of the Sun”) New Moon on Friday the 11th, at a quarter of 2:00 in the afternoon. Make a wish a half hour before or after (either way), and see what your gods/loa/saints have…

News You Can Use

Time for a news recap so here’s some stories you may have missed during the end of the Mayan Calendar.

Frankenfish on the menu. This has been all over the news. Our friends at the Food and Drug Administration have ruled in favor of genetically modified salmon coming to your table unannounced, that is, without a label. (Incidentally, the FDA is headed by Michael Taylor, a former vice president of Monsanto, the main genetic engineering company in the world. Taylor also served as an attorney and lobbyist for Monsanto prior to his appointment as “food czar.”) The GM salmon merges DNA from an eel and two salmon species that do not interbreed in nature. For those wondering, in…
