What does the future of Burning Man look like to you?

What does the future of Burning Man look like to you?

The future of Burning Man as it is is quite bleak, so I'd say the future goes towards thinking about pooling resources together and creating a sustainable piece of land, nurture it towards festival grounds, of and for the community, that can actually be a place that can be sustainable with resources that can grow. It's not just throwing resources into a burning desert situation.

Light Beams, Interplay, Mutability, Duality & Constant Flux (June 7-13)

Light Beams, Interplay, Mutability, Duality & Constant Flux (June 7-13)

This week’s occultation of Venus (passing over the Sun) overshadows our world for months to come, signaling a series of financial situations leading us further into a state of economic awareness (there is a crisis). Venus’ occultation also prepares us for the upcoming June 24 Uranus square Pluto (revolution and transformation of the ‘60s reappears).

I appreciate the quote of the week from Dan Savage (below). It’s so very “no matter where you go, there you are”and another reminder, perhaps, of the beauty of self-awareness—and the responsibilities that often come along with it.

How would you describe society in one word? Why?

How would you describe society in one word? Why?

Colorful. Because there's so many different textures and colors of people’s personalities and faiths and beliefs. Everything about us—the way we look, the way we sound, the way we speak. There's so many different textures. It's beautiful.

What are your thoughts on Obama supporting same-sex marriage?

What are your thoughts  on Obama supporting  same-sex marriage?

Whether or not he's making a political move, he is having an opinion about a very controversial subject which is usually really avoided, and that alone deserves respect. The reason it's avoided is because there's the chance of losing a bunch of voters. Gaining or losing, at least it's an opinion on a very serious and cared-about issue.

The Sun enters Gemini Sunday (Ascension) morning. Late afternoon (evening on the east coast) Sunday, the new moon occurs at 0.21 degrees Gemini (degree of Alcyone, Star of the Individual, in the Pleiades).

There are some weeks, just by their very design, that simply force an entire community to take pause. A big one. Last week was one of those weeks. By now, most of us have learned about the tragic death of Camouflage owner Shannon Collins. The ripple effect of this loss is being felt throughout the entire community.

On the Run

Is there hope for California’s salmon?

 

Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey

Monday, Feb. 8, is Aquarius new moon (19 degrees) and Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey (an imaginative, intelligent and vigilant creature). Monkey is bright, quick, lively, quite naughty, clever, inquiring, sensible, and reliable. Monkey loves to help others. Often they are teachers, writers and linguists. They are very talented, like renaissance people. Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the year of Monkey. Monkey contains metal (relation to gold) and water (wisdom, danger). 2016 will be a year of finances. For a return on one’s money, invest in monkey’s ideas. Metal is related to wind (change). Therefore events in 2016 will change very quickly. We must ponder with care before making financial, business and relationship changes. Fortune’s path may not be smooth in 2016. Finances and business as usual will be challenged. Although we develop practical goals, the outcomes are different than hoped for. We must be cautious with investments and business partnership. It is most important to cultivate a balanced and harmonious daily life, seeking ways to release tension, pressure and stress to improve health and calmness. Monkey is lively, flexible, quick-witted, and versatile. Their gentle, honest, enchanting yet resourceful nature results often in everlasting love. Monkeys are freedom loving. Without freedom, Monkey becomes dull, sad and very unhappy. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the Chinese official title of Marquis (noble person) was pronounced ‘Hou,’ the same as the pronunciation of ‘monkey’ in Chinese. Monkey was thereby bestowed with auspicious (favorable, fortunate) meaning. Monkey years are: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
