1.) YOU NOW:
🔮: #13 / Death

The fear of death is at the root of most human suffering, despite the fact that everyone from the highest king to the most humble peasant is bound to die. Death, the great equalizer in its suit of armor, is unstoppable and inevitable. It is important to remember that everyone deals with the pain of grief and loss differently, and with that in mind, you may unearth a profound truth that has long been submerged under the surface.


Speaking of death/fear, I am loving Will Smith’s thrilling story about bliss being on the other side of what scares you. He says, “The point of maximum danger is the point of minimum fear.”

2.) MOST HIDDEN INFLUENCE:
: King Of Swords

Swords = Air Element. Gemini  is the first air sign of the zodiac, and with the Gemini New Moon coming soon in this state of sensory overload, you are in the mood to cut out confusion (& other unwanted influences) with the biggest blade you can find. Gemini is concerned  the most relevant information, and the King of Swords is the master mentalist archetype that is commanding you to comminicate better.


3.) MOST ELEVATED ACHIEVEMENT:
: 3 of Cups

Ecstasy is an achievement. Aim high in the company of love and trust, and all spirits will be lifted.

4.) YOU in the PAST
: #12 / The Hanged Man

Now you know not to worry about time because, in the past, you have seen the success of surrendering control to a higher power . Someone powerful has prayed blessings upon your life all over, and there is a divine force that will deliver you at the perfect moment.

5.) YOU in the FUTURE:
: #9 / The Hermit

A lengthy period of exertion will soon require you to withdraw into a ritual of self-renewal in solitude. This temporary isolation will bring great awareness, and after you integrate all the impressions you have received, you will be more clear about who you are and what you’re doing.

#ThreeFictionalCharacters: An Essay of Indecision

I’m sure you’ve heard of the latest Twitter trending tropic/challenge/meme called Three Fictional Characters. I’m sure this isn’t any sort of PATRIOT ACT trap [couldn’t be], so I’ve decided to go ahead and volunteer this [potentially incriminating] personal information with the good people of the internet [and the CIA… the whole thing]. I’m sure, very.

Okay, so I’m being extra, but it was too hard to choose + plus it was really fun to look back at some of my favorite characters from television shows that came on when I was growing up. I decided instead of doing just three fictional characters that describe my personality, I would list six – three fictional men and three fictional women.

The Men:

Kyle Barker [Living Single] was the perfect balance of Classic Man and Hotep Hipster. His locs were hair goals and his wardrobe was pre-fleek. Plus, he was shady AF, but like… so smoov. This man taught me more than I know, and he is the reason why I know as an adult that I don’t have to compromise the rich vibrancy of my culture to be taken seriously as a professional.

focused force: mars in aries [astroloco]

“Don’t try to do two things at once.”

That was probably the best advice I ever received. This moment alone made my internship worth every stress clench, migraine, and early morning subway ride.  Thank you Dramatists Guild. Thank you.

I was downtown, somewhere in the village, running an errand with one of the girls from my internship/college, Melissa. Errands were my favorite part of the internship, because I actually got to leave the Times Square office and venture out into the city, on my own time with no direct supervision. Just the way I like it. Our mission? To pick up a few boxes of plays from John Guare’s apartment.

Little did I know John Guare was the playwright responsible for Six Degrees of Separation,  a famous play that had been recommended to me in 2008 by an acting teaching I studied with in California. Little did I know John Guare’s apartment was full of a ridiculous amount of boxes. Little did I know.

To expedite the process, I attempted to pick up two boxes at a time. Accidentally, I knocked over another box in the process, which damn well could have started the Downtown Domino Disaster 2012. It might as well have, because he cussed me out.

“No, no, no! Please don’t make this place more of a mess than it already is!” He exclaimed before giving me the best advice of my life that I can recall.

After we corralled all the boxes downstairs, he proceded to help us find a taxi. Well, he tried anyway. None of the cabs would stop for us and our ridiculous amount of boxes. He eventually gave up, flamboyantly, and decided to retire into his luxurious, but cluttered high-rise apartment. First, he shook our hands and told us it was nice to meet us. He smiled at me for what I perceived as an extra nanosecond, which I took as a sign that I will play the role of Paul in a Sex Degrees of Separation revival. Typical.

Although I thought he was a little over the top in his reaction, I couldn’t get mad at his snappy tone. He was right. I would be lying if I said I didn’t scatter my energy. I start off doing one thing, but then something else catches my interest, which often results in a downward spiral of non-productivity and wasted time. I believe an angel came in the form of this famous playwright to tell me to stop spreading myself so thin in order to maximize my potential.

With Mars in Aries, the energy we exert is not only forceful, but focused [not unlike the phallic symbols that represent this astrological pair].

Both Mars and Aries have a similar sort of tunnel vision, which helps them to win against any odds, especially when these energies are combined for this transit. Some may call this selfish or inconsiderate, but it is what it is. If you want to cross the finish line first, you might just have to skip the water break.
