…and a(nother) good time was had by all.  Here are a few of the pictures I took.  It was seriously overcast and somewhat sprinkly and cool outdoors. That alone will prompt another visit soon when it’s sunny.  The outdoors is magnificent.  Aside from the high tension wires and local vegetation, I could imagine myself transported to India. Between my visit in 2017 and this one I have continued to learn…

Towards the end of my first 200 hr of IYT at Kripalu Center, 2000)  we were asked to choose a topic that we wanted to study using the techniques and practices we were learning.   I struggled to find a topic.

They’ve been in the news alot lately, getting analyzed every which way.  So, I got curious and gathered together their birth info to create this who’s who on the Supreme Court in Dec.2022.  Can you figure out who’s who?  It’s a fun little exercise if learning astrology.  Each of these charts was calculated only from mo/dd/yr of birth.  No time or location was used.  I’ve place the SUN…

I found this passage recently…  it’s part of the conversation between Krishna & Arjuna.  Gazillions of words have been spoken and written and debated and turned into graphic novels to re-tell the story of the Bhagavad Gita. The Matsya Vedh  (Piercing-Eye) competition is one of a few different archery competitions that Arjuna had engaged in to achieve his dharma.   Shooting at an eagle eye was another. Hindu mythology has lots of…

A week ago the moon passed thru the Aries portion of the zodiac where she tackled the complications that arise from Jupiter, Chiron, Mars, and Eris in Aries as well.    She’s calmer now in Taurus.
