Equinox Musings with Moby

In Process. Acrylic & pastel on masonite, 48 x 48 inches. © 2010 by Kathy Crabbe Tension between opposites: contrast, strain, pain, seeking balance within and without.

Shadow feelings may appear negative at first but are also transformative forces for changes: anger, deep pain, sadness - can transform and transcend us as a species to seek change.

What can you do to make a difference on this planet Mama Earth? Together we can destroy or together we can heal; the choice is up to you.

Musical Ambiance: Moby, Everything is Wrong

Quotes from Moby's album sleeve:

I have no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human race in its gradual improvement to leave off eating animals. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Your choice of diet can influence your long term health prospects more than any other action you might take. ~ Former Surgeon General, C. Everett Koop

I Deserve It

I can breathe again! It's been a whirlwind three weeks with the opening of my new eCourse and lots and lots of soul readings, but today I go back to painting - a steady diet is required!! I can feel my body melting into joy.

"This guy has prayed for me And I have prayed for him This guy was made for me And I was made for him... I have no regrets There’s nothing to forget All the pain Was worth it."

Lyrics from "I Deserve It" by Madonna

Pisces New Moon keywords for me: restraint, tempered with mysticism, passion and discipline.

Spring Equinox - listening to old friends on CD - Birch Island Party 2007, Friday night - not really missing my home town because my heart is still there and always will be.

The smell of mulch and fertilizer fills my senses...I've been planting, it's spring!

I'm also studying astrological charts right now exploring how the planets/signs/houses act in relation to the entire chart and other planets/signs/houses. What verbs, adverbs apply? This is a study of aspects, of interaction, of relationship.

I'm learning more about singletons, missing functions and elements in an astrological chart. These kinds of things can relate to areas that erupt out of nowhere in one's life, transforming us in explosive ways. On the other hand, we may overcompensate in these areas, becoming an expert. One can't tell from studying the chart which way things will go - that part is up to the individual. A great book about this subject is called "The Magic Thread, Astrological Chart Interpretation Using Depth Psychology" by Richard Idemon. Richard comes from an acting/drama background and loves to infuse archetypal meaning and mythology into a chart interpretation. He turns the planets into actors, the signs into the roles they play and the houses into the stage.

Currently my most requested astrological readings are the Past Life Reading and Turning 40 - a Mid Life Soul Reading. Both these readings combine astrology with psychic reading which I find to be a wonderful mix of left and right brain intuitive reasoning.
