There's a lesson here, and it's not about Cawthorn's taste in fashion or having fun. It's more related to the saying, "Don't bring a knife to a gunfight." It seems Cawthorn showed up with an envelope opener instead. The one thing I've observed in all my years on social media is when you get dragged, it's often less about your enemies, but more about the friends who decide to stop protecting you. Or who just outright turn on you and throw you to the wolves. I believe this has happened here.

That's an ancient idea, advanced in "Western" culture in the Myth of Er. You can think of it as more a symbiote, guiding you. We are forgetful vessels with the Daemon to remind us of who we are and our purpose. Just the opposite for me, though. A tree can have hundreds of thousands of leaves, never in the same place, in its lifetime but we have a Cosmos that needs to keep one individual soul over many lifetimes? That's a pretty poor Cosmos. Best to surface new buds.

There's no doubt that astrology is controversial AF as @conduitofhealin says. In fact, I think astrologers could benefit MORE from debating each other. But we too often descend into arguing. Those are not the same. I know, I know. Why can't we all do whatever we feel called to do? Or say whatever we feel called to say? Well, there are at least two good reasons: a non-astrologically educated public AND astrology is as much an art of reason as it is intuition.

It's time. The inchoate, frothy sea of #Pisces is without differentiation. It needs the clarity & singularity of 1 instead of the duality of the fish.

Of course, after #Aquarius has poured its steely and idealized waters on us, we see two fishes swimming in opposite directions before us. This is #Pisces. Pisces memorializes the struggle of how the impermanent is made to endure, of how what endures dissolves away

Good points in this article if it’s not behind a paywall. But I’m amazed how the author also doesn’t mention how communist/totalitarian states also learned to have hybrid capitalistic economies. That changes everything.… For example, during much of the Cold War, countries like India and China had closed economies. But as they opened their economies up, they were better able to support themselves. Russia has learned to do the same, unlike its Soviet self.

If I ever went to the dark side and became a full-on skeptic (and this has happened with a few astrologers actually), among the first things I would attack are people's attachment to signs (what I call signology) and houses. They are THE shakiest aspects of astrology. Zodiac signs are interesting and fun, but the real protein in astrology rests with the dynamics of the planets and stars themselves. In fact, what many don't know is that much of the significations for the signs come from the planets that rule them, their modality, and...
