“I write from instinct, from inexplicable sparkle. I don’t know why I’m writing what I’m writing. Usually, I sit and I let my hands wander on my guitar. And I sing anything. I play anything. And I wait till I come across a pleasing accident. Then I start to develop it. Once you take a piece of musical information, there are certain implications that it automatically contains — the implication of that phrase elongated, contracted, or inverted or in another time signature. So you start with an impulse and go to what your ear likes.”

Harbinger of the Future: Jupiter in Scorpio
Dear Friend and Reader:
Today I’ve got some news for you about Jupiter in Scorpio, a one-year transit that began this week. But first, I have a call to action.
The world is in crisis. We are seeing the effects of global warming manifest before our eyes: as successive hurricanes pounding coastlines and inland areas; as rising sea levels; as droughts followed by massive fires that are brought on by complex groups of conditions that all come back to the planet heating up.
There is political crisis from the top to the bottom of society, most of it rooted in greed and lying; there’s a sexual crisis that has belched into the news, and once again, only because it’s happening in the entertainment industry and we recognize the names involved.
News outlets that could be helpful are too busy selling us drugs and luxury cars to care very much.
There’s a spiritual crisis — of meaning, of the value of human life or any life, and of the value of existence itself. There’s a mental health crisis — also related to meaning, and many factors that are driving people insane. There is economic crisis, health crisis, social crisis: it’s all the same thing with many different names.

If Your Birthday is Oct. 13
(The Day of the Tough Cookie) | Libra Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You seem to be a step ahead of yourself, though you might want to slow down a little and let events develop before taking action. You know what direction you’re headed, though over the next few seasons, additional information will come to light, and you will have opportunities you were not expecting. So take things gently; the future comes upon us fast enough.
Written in the Planets
With Mercury and Uranus preparing to send out some mental sparks tomorrow, today’s transition of Venus into Libra should offer some emotional stability. Look for the beautiful solution to any curveballs you get thrown; that is, the thing that feels elegant, balanced, in harmony or simply fair. This is not the same as pretending to go along with what others want just for the sake of avoiding a disagreement. It’s about hearing the music in the phrase, “both and” — or knowing that when you allow space for a third option, that is often the point at which all others meet in creative ways.

As always, your reading is spot on and validates what I am experiencing in life at this time. The sheer acknowledgment that as a Libra I need balance, beauty and aesthetics in my life to make me tick on, balanced, in my day-to-day endeavors and consequently some very huge endeavors for the year was just what I needed to keep going.
