The scariest thing I can imagine is what the forecasters are calling a ‘Frankenstorm’. This is a monster storm, a hybrid winter nor’easter / tropical hurricane that will begin on Monday and is expected to linger through Friday. It will be a minimum 36 hour event. I plan to celebrate Halloween on Saturday and will spend Sunday completing last-minute preparations. Good luck from West Hartford, CT to all you folks along the East Coast who are in the path of this raging beast. If you are on Twitter follow me @MorganWolfe9. On Tumblr: Morgan Wolfe.
“It’s looking like a very serious storm that could be historic,” said Jeff Masters, meteorology director of the forecasting service Weather Underground. “Mother Nature is not saying, ‘Trick or treat.’ It’s just going to give tricks.”
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecaster Jim Cisco, who coined the nickname Frankenstorm, said: “We don’t have many modern precedents for what the models are suggesting.” AP
A year has passed since my last post here. It seems fitting to begin with the New Moon in Libra. This is the time to restore the balance, to reassess the strengths and weaknesses in relationships, to re-examine what is stagnant in your creative lives. One necessary task in achieving balance is addressing issues of unfairness and inequality, which often requires you to take a stand and hold your ground, despite the discomfort of confrontation. This is the time to realign your compass to the True North of who you really are and what you want in this life. Let your outer presence reveal your inner nature. Become the mirror and reflect the qualities you seek for yourself.
May you find your way to harmony and walk in peace & love. ~ Morgan
Finds her heart,
herself within the consistent beat.
She closes her eyes to the sharp
she finds that one hand is holding her,
the other hangs, relaxed.
This is who she is.
because she can.
because she wants to.
This is who she is.
She is the most beautiful thing
she has ever seen.
A lace curtain blowing in the wind
the mystery of sensuality
A bench upon an empty hill side
the random acts of kindness
a flower broken through the sidewalk
the power of perseverance.

New Moon in Sagittarius/Solar Eclipse

Here is a brilliant astrological forecast for Thanksgiving. It also explains the confrontational energies in place now (Occupy Wall Street and global justice):
Sagittarius New Moon:
Out of the Comfort Zone
by Simone Butler
Sagittarius rules thankfulness as well as wide open spaces. This New Moon asks: Do you need to incorporate more time in nature into your life? How about a gratitude ritual on Thanksgiving before sitting down to eat, and then a hike afterwards? You may also find that playing a game dissolves any tensions”. The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon’s degree, 3 Sagittarius, is “Two men playing chess; the transcendent ritualization of conflict.” READ IT
If you magically minded, I highly recommend the following:

Call and Response

Due to claims that the police were ‘surrounded’, I’m posting this multi-perspective view of the UC Davis ‘sit-in’ from Nov 18th. Protestors were simply sitting there. What they were doing was not a crime. They were not threatening the police or anyone else. They did not provoke this level of action. There is no excuse for this, ever, in a so-called free society. The police should have refused to get involved, on moral grounds. Following orders is no defense for their reprehensible actions.
‘Countdown’ with Keith Olbermann, November 22, 2011
Guest host David Shuster covers the latest from the Occupy movement nationwide and Mitt Romney’s controversial campaign ad. Plus, “Time Marches On” and comedian Christian Finnegan explains why watching no news is better than watching Fox News. (View transcript)
Pepper Spraying Cop has his own Tumblr. Creating humor from pathos. Brilliant!
