Dog Walking, Astrology, Integrity and Leaving Facebook
February 16, 2018 through February 4, 2019 is the Year of the Earth Dog in the Chinese Zodiac.
While not Chinese, I am a fan of all astrology, mythology and folk wisdom. The stories of the stars and how the positions of the planets imprint on human behavior in predictable ways is endlessly fascinating to me. I began studying astrology after my life started to fall apart 3 years ago. The ending of my marriage and professional performing career with my ex-husband, betrayals by close friends, a car accident, and a separation from a toxic creative community all fueled my departure from a decade of life based in New York City. I dedicated every moment of my time to putting myself back together again. I immersed myself in therapy, support groups, mediation, yoga, running, art making and studied magic (yes, I even resorted to sorcery to get out of my misery). From this immersion in the weird and wonderful world of Western Occultism, I became a dedicated student of astrology and archetypal symbolism.
