Long, but WELL WORTH the viewing. (Dare I say, perhaps, right up there with "Thriller"? I just love all the metaphor, & how fleshed out the character of the Phoenix is, simple, yet captivating...Selita Ebanks did her thang, go GYRL!!!)

p.s. - And oooh, the Deep Grooves @ 6:05 (I thought I was the only one who felt like that when I heard "Power" lol) and @ 24:41.

p.s.s. - Beware the Phoenix Phreak-Out!

Well, it's that time again! Mercury (the planet of communication and short-term travel) went Retrograde on Aug. 20th, and will be in it until September 12. So, these 3 weeks are a good time for INTROSPECTION and REFLECTION on Ourselves and Our Current Plans (communication and travel can also go awry during a mercury retrograde, so best to dot your i's and cross your t's). As far as the Piscean Full Moon is concerned, the moon cycle is 28 days from New Moon (no moon in the sky) to Full Moon to New Moon again, and the new moon is the spiritually fertile time when we plant seeds, literally and metaphysically, with ideas, intentions and invocations. The idea is that when the Full Moon comes around after the prior New Moon, one will see some type of confirmation (whether pos. or neg. ) on the "seeds" they planted during that New Moon. So, with a Piscean Full Moon, it's a calm, but potentially emotional time being Pisces is a water sign. And coupled with the Mercury Retrograde it's a good time to go deep within oneself to get back in touch with all those things that drive you artistically, creatively, & emotionally, and make the blueprint to how you want to start seeing them manifest after the retrograde. That's the catch with the Pisces Full Moon, it is all about dreams and glamour, things that catch our eye, but being that Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune, things can be magnified (Jupiter - gaseous planet) and illusory, not lasting (Neptune - water and gaseous planet), like we are getting a glimpse of how things could be, yet it's fleeting. That's what this sign is about, so it is magnified during the full moon, and with the Mercury retrograde, we take time to look in and make plans, but hold off on IMPLEMENTING those plans because things are transitioning during this period, thus it is not a good time, astrologically speaking, for setting the foundation for new ideas, plans, or relationships. Also, during this time of the Mercury Retrograde, we may see old friends and lovers, return to our lives, but this is the point, to decide whether to go deeper, affirming the bond, or to let it go, simply a tying up of old loose ends. Also, Mars is closer to the planet than it's ever been, so we must be careful to avoid fights around this time, especially since it is already being influenced by the emotional Full Moon of Pisces!


The Majority of the above mentioned information is from my own knowledge and interpretation, but I received some info from astrologist Jan Spiller's website,

and from my friend Paul Moreland (friend him!) on FB, he's great with keeping The People informed :)


A Great link that goes in to the Moon in Pisces/Sun in Virgo connection.:

Slide 6

"Full Moons bring revelations and with Pisces-Virgo energies, it could have to do with your life purpose. What have you dedicated yourself to doing or being in the world? It might be devotion to an ideal, a child, or simply being the best at what you do."


(Thanks Candii!)

31 Days of Birthdayness = Huge Success!!!

Make that BIRTH MONTH to Me :)

WHOA!!!! (imitating Joey from 'Blossom')

So, I feel like I've been around the world in 31 days, in my mind at least :) The premise this year for this Birthday was to thoughtfully & successfully extend the festivities for the ENTIRE month. We Won. Felt like I was riding a wave of Pleasure & Fun the entire month! I've been doing this for some time now, at least in loose form since college, a bunch of good friends have birthdays in March, so we've always celebrated in support of each other. This year, however, the approach to fun was decidely more strategic, and why not!?! We Gotta Effect Our Own Happiness, make a Vessel for It to Enter Our Lives, before the blues take it's place ya' heard??? So yes, the fun started on March 1, with a trip to MSG (Madison Square Garden) to see Venus Williams vs. Kim Clijsters in the annual Billie Jean King Cup. One Word = Exciting. Next we went journeyed to Upstate, NY to the Turning Stone Casino and Resort for a weekend of music, culture, & relaxing! Turning Stone Casino and Resort is owned and operated by the Oneida Indian Nation, a branch of the Iroquois Confederation, and A. Keys was in concert in promotion of her latest effort, 'The Element of Freedom' - It was Definitely an Inspiring performance. While there we had to balance out the experience, can't just be all concerts, casinos, and clubbin' (c'mon son!) so we took and an enlightening trip to the Shako Wi Oneida Cultrual Center, and also unwound at the Ska:nĂ¡ Spa, one of the BEST Spa's around. One Word = Aaaaaaaaaah :) Interspersed was a little St. Pattys's Day Fun, Hoboken and NYC style, followed by a trip down South to see the Fam...B-RAE Luvs the Kidz. And what else...oh yes, the always mystical, magical New Life Expo this past weekend here in NYC at The New Yorker Hotel (did you know Nikola Telsa lived there!?!) , and but of course the advent of SPRING!!! Though a lil' soggy in the Tri-State at the current moment, I can't wait till days of Daffodils, Sundresses, and Sandals! Yes, I must say that "Operation 31 Days of Birthdayness" was a Huge and Complete Success! Some uploads soon to follow Luvies!

Thankfully One Year Wiser, One Year Brighter - NAMASTE!

p.s. - THANKS KIM!!!



p.s. - 2010 is shaping up to be One Busy Year! We'll be better about more regular posts, we want you all in on the fun too! Plus that Felt Good! Too Much Goin' On, Gotta Write About It! :)

W.I.R.N. - What I'm Reading Now

I'm buying this book today, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" but really though!?!

It's the story of one woman's TRULY immortal cells, and her contribution to modern science, unbeknownst to herself...some Siriusly madd science right here.

I think EVERYONE should read this.
