Pre-eclipsia

Dark moon in Leo feels, as channelled by my familiar, Elvira. As Mistress of the Dark she knows all too well that the distance travelled once slungshot out of a new moon is directly proportional to the level at which you let go and made space during the dark. This is non negotiable magic cat…

The Zooming Eclipse: Part One

There are only two ways the Great American Total Solar Eclipse is coming at you (and both of them are capitalised). The first* finds Monday’s behemoth raging towards you at speed. As you wind the window down to check you are not hallucinating (because seriously universe, you’re hurling yet more lightning and earthquakes and shit…

The Zooming Eclipse: Part Two

There are only two ways the Great American Total Solar Eclipse is coming at you (and both of them are capitalised). The second* finds you ready, willing and able. As ready as you will ever be, as you do your level best to pace yourself and ride the rising tide. Willing because despite the scrambling…

A particularly revolting member of our Senate yesterday wore a Burqa into parliament as an anti-Muslim political stunt.

The Halfway Motel

And so we have now arrived at the half way point of this mad season, minced meat sandwiched between a lunar eclipse still pinging and a behemoth total solar eclipse on the horizon. Today is the third quarter moon, crisis and opportunity weaved into her waning, signalling the start of our very welcome descent into…

Overthinking

Everything ‘s fine darl, he said, you’re just focusing on it too much. Common sense tumbling from the lips of Mr Mofo as I was having another unnecessary conniption about my car from the passenger seat. Without the focus solo driving requires, I had dubiously diverted brainspace to excessive (and unnecessary) analysis of something that…
