What Planet Dominates You?

Freddie Mercury by ~skull As you may be able to tell from the image above... Mercury is the dominant planet of my natal chart. And it explains a lot about me. I am very Mercurial - subject to sudden or unpredictable changes of mood or mind. I could blame that trait on other planetary placements... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreams of my Inner Ocean

DreamsOfMyInnerOcean by MoonVooDoo This morning I saw that there was a new Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea. I have no photographs in my archive of the sea, even though I live quite near to the coast. I thought about passing on this challenge... or taking a trip to the coast, but it's Saturday and a beautiful... Continue Reading →

Pretty Fly For A Shy Guy

"He waits; that's what he does... And I tell you what: tick followed tock followed tick followed tock followed tick... Here's to waiting." So, I just finished posting a piece I wrote prompted by a Daily Post writing prompt, then I went onto my reader and read a post which prompted this post. Writing prompts... Continue Reading →

Get Your Sneak On!

Creep by MoonVooDoo Feeling a little self conscious are you, Daily Prompt? Want to know what we think about you and your pokes and prods into our writing minds and fingers? Daily Prompt: A Little Sneaky Are writing prompts a useful exercise, or do you find them to be too limiting and/or hokey? Photographers, artists,... Continue Reading →

There were a lot of Fucks in that last post…

...but I edited them out, because I need them for something else. Have I already posted this brilliant work of genius? Can't be bothered to check, besides it deserves another post... unless I haven't... oh fuck it! (Shhh! Don't waste fucks!) Box of Fucks by Domics

This is what you get for having Virgo Rising

VirgoRising by MoonVooDoo And... plop! Transiting Mercury just dropped into my 1st house. The transiting Sun is following, but still lagging behind speedy Mercury... still in the 12th, messing with my dreaming mojo. Hi! I have Virgo rising. Don't look at me and think I'm virginal and all that... Virgin, my ass! Mind you... no...... Continue Reading →

Forgot to tag that last post…

...Oh... fuck it! Who cares... oh... you do?... Well, it's your problem, not mine... Oh... yes, I suppose it is my problem more than yours... I'm going to let that problem slide away. I'm not tagging this post either... slide away... I cut tags out of clothes... they itch, rub, and just annoy me... let... Continue Reading →

If a person screams on the internet…

If a tree falls in the woods by NomadSlim ... and no one hears, do they make a sound?

Little things comfort us because little things distress us…

Blaise Pascal by Augustin Pajou "I have made this letter longer, because I have not had the time to make it shorter." - Blaise Pascal I got this quote today when I published my last post. I thought this particular quote was very apt, considering that I am a Drossmeister. Do you ever read the... Continue Reading →

Folie a Deux

So the Daily Prompt wants me to cast the movie of my life, does it? I am a film afficionada. I have seen countless films in a plethora of genres, many of which I like, some I love, a small handful I would watch more than once (I have a fairly photographic memory, so seeing... Continue Reading →

Conditioned To Respond To All The Threats

My cousin was a terrorist. Does that shock you? Send chills of fear coursing through you? Is your finger hovering over the unfollow button? I didn't know that my cousin was a terrorist at the time, I was too young to understand. I liked this particular cousin, I have quite a few. He was much... Continue Reading →

Internet Treasures: Astromatrix

I was looking for information on the generation born with Uranus/Pluto (or Pluto/Uranus) conjunct, prompted by a comment on one of my astrology posts by the very lovely msfullroller of Ceralsis and Pluranian RamBullings, who has Pluto and Uranus conjunct in the 1st house like I do. She noticed that finding information about the conjunction... Continue Reading →

So this morning I had a rude awakening and I felt all.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SECVGN4Bsgg Men at Work - Who Can It Be Now I have a Virgo Moon, with Virgo rising, so privacy, having my own haven to retreat to and keeping to myself is very important to my sanity, especially as my Virgo Moon squares...

A Standing Ovation… and Silence.

Daily Prompt: Iā€™d Like to Thank My Cats You are receiving an award ā€“- either one that already exists, or a new one created just for you.

Steam………………………………..Punk! Quirks and Grumbles

Those who know me as well as anyone knows anyone, are aware of several quirks which I proudly possess and indulge in: 1/ I have a phobia of gifts. Not giving them, just receiving them. 2/ I have a phobia about using the telephone. I do, can and will, but I keep the conversations short... Continue Reading →

What Day Is It Today…?

"Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.ā€ - Anthony G. Oettinger I have never been in sync with time... tick tock clock time. I have my own version of time which is flexible, makes swooshing sound and moves differently from the way we are supposed to view such a thing. It is... Continue Reading →

Extroverted, Introverted, and Ambiverted

My Demons by Boris Pramatarov I read an article today which was a cheeky rant at the sudden rise in posts on social media sites about being introverted. The author felt that introverts were behaving in a highly extroverted way about being introverted, thus confusing the issue of whether they were truly introverts or just... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus… on a Woodland Butterfly

Focus... often eludes me. My partner is a professional photographer who gave me one of his old cameras and said... well, I can't remember what he said, but the gist of it was why don't you explore your creativity and see what happens. He likes to challenge and inspire me, he seems to think I... Continue Reading →

The Astrology of my Social Media Cyber Bubbles

The other day I received an email from tumblr wishing my tumblr blog a Happy first Birthday. It was a quirky surprise and I posted the card to mark a milestone in my blogging life. "Damaged & Dangerous turned 1 today! We hope it was a great year, and we look forward to sharing many... Continue Reading →

A Laughing and Smiling Mama Bear

Someone called me a Mama Bear last night. I think it was in a comment on my blog... in a dream. I laughed at it. Laughing is something I do a lot. It covers many bases for me... mostly it covers up the fact that I am uncertain what reaction I am supposed to have,... Continue Reading →

Tweet #30

"When I challenge people... there is usually an abundance of silence afterwards." - @UrsusAbstrusus No, I'm not having a pop at you, just stating a fact of my life... I scare people, especially when I am trying not to do so.

Photography Challenge: Self Portrait with a Twist

If you want to skip my blah blah and go straight to the challenge, just scroll to the bottom of the post to the words - CHALLENGE BELOW! The other day I came across this - Would You Recognise Yourself with a Completely Symmetrical Face? - I thought the idea was absolutely brilliant and decided... Continue Reading →

Back to Black

When I posted this challenge my reasons for it were connected to my need to explore the human psyche, mine and those of others, for in what others reveal about themselves we often find ourselves too... or ways to ourselves... and in revealing ourselves to others we offer them a way to find themselves... if...

Weekly Writing Challenge: Lost in Words

Photo by Michelle Weber via The Daily Post Write a post based on this image, they said, and so many people did... and so I was clothed in words, accessorised with projections, thought about, dreamed about, fantasised about and... yes, I inspired fingers to write about me, but no one knows me... I am lost... Continue Reading →

A Very Biased View on Violence, Video Games and Being Human

I read a comment the other day which was attached to an article about a murder. The impression I had of the person commenting was that they thought they were very intelligent, savvy about the world and its workings. There was a hint of tired superiority in their attitude, as though they tutted so much... Continue Reading →

Crcket Cricket

Don't you just love the sound of crickets! Isn't it relaxing, not just because it is rhythmic, but because of all the sensory pleasures it stirs, because you know crickets only make that sound when it is warm, when it is Summer, and Summer feels so good. I was wandering through a field near my... Continue Reading →

How To Offend and Upset in One Easy Step

I worry sometimes about offending and upsetting people. I always have. In fact this worry has at times been the bane of my life. I used to be very concerned about not bothering people, to the point where I would make my life very complicated for myself by going out of my way not to... Continue Reading →

Haunted by Indigo

When I was in my late teens the New Age movement was... trending. So was Self Help. They sort of went together and sort of didn't. I enjoyed the New Age. It was very silly, not as weird or as enlightened as it wished to be, yet very intriguing and sometimes insightful. I tried a... Continue Reading →

I Thought You Were Going To Complain About The Dust…

The title of this post comes from the words the farmer spoke to me after I waved at him and he got out of his vehicle... expecting the worst I guess, as in another city person who moved to the countryside and then doesn't understand why there is dust and insects and other bits and...
