Mercury in Aquarius
(January 19 – February 5, 2013)

Disregard tradition, and say what needs to be said. Think outside of the box. If it doesn’t make sense now, it will one day. Listen to your inner voice and share it with humanity. It might just change the world.

concrete of my mouth [poetry]


Give me a little memory
To take into my teeth
Grind it up like a wheel
Against the concrete
Of my mouth

Let it float
From the bottom of a sunken ship
To the surface of a serenely tense horizon blue
Refracting light or something scientifical
Almost too outlandish to be true

Beyond recognition
Darker than the shine of the distant star
Cast in the rapturous debris of linear time
The ignition of a flashback triggers an episode
Way past eroded, blasted by cognition

celebrity lunatics:leo full moon [astroloco]

We have made it through another Full Moon, this time in Leo. The moon is still full-ish, but it’s a little past exact at this point. Take a moment to reflect on how you felt on Saturday night, and Sunday morning. The astrological aspect of the Full Moon is challenging, so this energy can be overwhelming. Did you succumb to lunacy?

Imagine being born at this time, in the middle of an opposition. With the sun [ego] and moon [emotions] at odds, we feel tugged in two completely different directions. What does it mean to come into the world at such a dynamic moment? This energy leaves a permanent imprint on Full Moon babies, who internalize this opposition. Needless to say, these babies grow up to be very interesting individuals.

Below are some famous Leo Full Moon babies. These people use their creative consciousness to shine uniquely amongst their peers. With Aquarius’ group awareness and Leo’s personal warmth, babies on this full moon are undeniably popular. Babies of the Leo Full Moon appeal to a wide spectrum of people; they are universal. Fun-loving and playful [Leo], these experimental people are loved for their effortless originality.

It should come as no shock that Leo Full Moon babies are known for their electric vitality.

saturn in scorpio: bad breakup [#StarsAndSymbols]

We never really anticipate a breakup when we enter into a relationship. If we did, it wouldn’t make sense to even initiate the relationship in the first place. Despite our high hopes and expectations, these things don’t always go as planned. When I started my first semester of college three and half years ago, I definitely didn’t plan for it to end up this way.

Three and a half years ago, Saturn went into Libra. This transit forced us to slow down and structure our so-called relationships. We learned the discipline of partnership, how to give and receive with other people.  Now that Saturn is in Scorpio, the honeymoon is over. Now the focus is on commitment, intimacy, and shared resources. If the relationships we developed when Saturn was in Libra were not built on a solid foundation, Saturn in Scorpio will make this painfully clear to us, as we will not be able to fake it any longer. The deep, dark truths of our bonds will surface and we will be forced to make a major choice; move forward or divorce.

My school and I are taking somewhat of an extended break right. If our relationship were on Facebook, it would be very, very “complicated.” I was just kicked out of my dorm (one semester shy of my graduation) because my family wasn’t able to pay last semester’s balance. Times are hard, but I guess that doesn’t matter (even if I have attended the same college for nearly four years and paid all six previous semesters). At the end of the day, this “educational institution” is a business, first and foremost. And to think I thought we had something special…


I never thought my first big breakup would be with my college, but what can you do? As much as I want to sing “We are never, ever, ever getting back together”, I have one semester left until Destination: Graduation, and it would only make sense to go back in the near future and get my degree out of the way. Until then, I’m excited to expand my horizons and explore my options. This will be my first time not being in school for almost twenty years, and I will make the most of it.

(January 19 – February 18, 2013)

After a whole season of climbing, we’ve finally reached the summit in Capricorn! What exactly do we find at the top of the world? A jug of water. How exactly do we use it? We pour it out for the consumption of the people. Why exactly do we do that? Because it’s Aquarius season? Exactly!

what’s your addiction?: neptune in pisces [astroloco]

I’m not sure if I’m addicted to my computer, or just addicted to the Internet. Either way, my laptop is like my sixth limb. I use it before I go to sleep and as soon as I wake up. It is an extension of me, for better or worse.  In this day and age, I know I am not the only one attached to technology. We are connected to the convenience of our phones, tablets, and mp3 players in such a way that we forget how to function on our own.

Neptune is in Pisces. This is a placement of extreme intuition and sensitivity. Boundaries dissolve as we soak up collective energy like psychic sponges. Because we’re so incredibly receptive, we are prone to become emotionally overwhelmed. Pisces heightens Neptune’s evasive tendencies, so instead of opening ourselves to receive spiritual insights, some of us choose to escape into the illusory world of addiction.

When you think of an addiction, what comes to mind? Drugs, right? We’re taught to condemn drug addicts and abusers of other unlawful distractions, but many of us have legal vices that can be just as detrimental if overdone. Food, sports, masturbation… just to name a few.

addiction: the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.

This isn’t meant to be judgmental or negative. It simply is what it is. There is, however, a difference between pleasure in moderation and rituals of reliance. We suffer so many addictions that go overlooked and untreated. Most of us are reluctant to recognize the dependency. Remember, the first step is admitting you have a problem. If there’s something (or someone) in your life that you cannot live without, you must ask, “Who is the master, and who is the slave?”

Sobering Saturn in Scorpio makes us startlingly aware of obsession and consequence. Is the price you pay for pleasure too high? If not, keep doing what you do! If so, maybe it’s time to break the cycle. Use your newfound awareness as a catalyst for reinvention. Re-structure the way in which you manage your personal power. Realize your transformation by creating and committing to a solid set of boundaries.

What’s your addiction? Whatever it is, own up to it! It’s amazing what can happen when you take responsibility for your indulgences. Might even change your life.

Committing to partnerships is an investment of time, money, and energy, so we take responsibility for them and treat them like a business. Security is valued above all else, so have restraint and let your relationships work for you.
