A September Solid

Another week, another planetary heavy hitter stationing to turn direct as we trudge through the final days of a long and brutal eclipse season. Time and tides have irrevocably shifted us here through a portal we were powerless to refuse. There is no turning back now, no matter what we wish upon. There is much…

Mergoat Musing

If things have felt heavy or sluggish today and time was definitely not on your side, you can thank old uncle Saturn for the dragging of heels and dour frame. Today he squared off with the sun, who has spent a great portion of the past week spitting solar flares our way as he too…
