What are your thoughts on the government shutdown?

lt larissaI think it's a really immature move to try and get attention and create policy change that’s not even possible. I think it’s a last-ditch effort to get attention, mostly, and it's not going to provide any results for the GOP, even though it's causing many people to suffer.

lt shannonI think it’s childish. If you want to divide it into Democrats versus Republicans I think the Republicans are throwing a temper tantrum, and no one’s going to do anything about it, which sucks and everybody else suffers. But we kind of already know that.

lt craigI think we’re being held hostage by reactionary forces. The Tea Party, or whatever they are.

lt sharronIt’s a shame that we have to be under control of stupid people. It’s all a ploy for having power when they were in the minority, and that’s not okay.

lt joeAll of us are affected by the federal government, and while some functions of it are shut down we may experience it personally. The longer it's shut down the more we will come to realize the impact it has upon us and the people we love. I would like a greater awareness about how the government functions support or deter from our lives, and therefore I'm supportive of the shutdown.

Giving Where It Helps

 

Over Hills and Plains, Riding a White Horse, Bow and Arrows in Hand

Saturday, early morning, the sun enters and radiates the light of Sagittarius. Three hours later, the Sagittarius new moon (0.07 degrees) occurs. “Let food be sought,” is the personality-building keynote. “Food” means experiences; all kinds, levels and types. It also means real food. Sag’s secret is their love of food. Many, if not musicians, are chefs. Some are both. The energies shift from Scorpio’s deep and transformative waters to the “hills and plains of Sagittarius.” Sag is the rider on a white horse, eyes focused on the mountain peaks of Capricorn (Initiation) ahead. Like Scorpio, Sagittarius is also the “disciple.” Adventure, luck, optimism, joy and the beginnings of gratitude are the hallmarks of Sagittarius. Sag is also one of the signs of silence. The battle lines were drawn in Libra and we were asked to choose where we stood. The Nine Tests were given in Scorpio and we emerged “warriors triumphant.” Now in Sag, we are to be the One-Pointed Disciple, riding over the plains on a white horse, bow and arrows in hand, eyes focused on the Path of Return ahead. Sagittarians are one-pointed (symbol of the arrow). Sag asks, “What is my life’s purpose?” This is their quest, from valleys, plains, meadows and hills, eyes aimed always at the mountaintop. Sag emerges from Scorpio’s deep waters, conflict and tests into the open air. Sag’s quest is humanity’s quest. Sag’s quest, however, is always accompanied by music and good food.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so it’s time to be thinking about the wine you’re going to serve with that special dinner, be it turkey, ham, a roast, or something vegetarian or vegan.
