MarsInScorpio by MoonVooDoo

MarsInScorpio by MoonVooDoo I have Mars in Scorpio. This is my interpretation of that astrological placement. Well... it was, but then the cat stepped in and took over the photo shoot. My cat is an ex-feral cat. The ex bit simply means that she lives in a house rather than in the wild, but her... Continue Reading →


Intensely, Passionately, Wild and Crazy

Please note: This was written during Mars' transit of Scorpio last year. I have Mars in Scorpio, so when this transit happened, all my passionately wild and crazy bells went off. It has always been a very intense energy in my life. It is located in the 3rd house of the mind (and other things),... Continue Reading →

VenusInPisces by MoonVooDoo

VenusInPisces by MoonVooDoo Occasionally I try to capture my astrological chart in my photography. As a way to explain something intangible about myself to myself. Everything I do creatively is done for myself, not for others. Selfish perhaps, but there is a positive as well as a negative side to selfishness. I share what I... Continue Reading →


Do you ever stop and do a double take and look at something considered a normal and necessary part of life, and wonder why it is. Why is this thing considered a normal and necessary part of life. Who decided it was. When did it become so. Why do we do this. Apologies. Why do... Continue Reading →

"Sorry, I just got stuck in a traffic jam in my mind. I may be stuck in it for a while." - @UrsusAbstrusus


Memories of Matsuko | directed by Tetsuya Nakashima | Based on the novel by Muneki Yamada Memories of Matsuko is one of my favourite movies. It is visually stunning and evocative. Complex, poignant, and profoundly real, yet at the same time surreal. The story follows a young man as he delves into the life of... Continue Reading →

What’s Your Favourite Movie?

On the surface ‘What’s your favourite movie?’ is a simple question. It is a common question, often used to break the ice, and as a way to get to know someone better. It can inform you if a person shares some of your interests. It can reveal a little bit or a lot about the... Continue Reading →

Internet Treasures: Healthy Levels Of Insanity by NoxSatuKeir

Healthy Levels Of Insanity 6 by  NoxSatuKeir I'm one of those people who, when life gets tough, intense, and too serious, needs to find a humorous release from the pressure. The internet is very good for that in so many ways. Since I also have a slightly twisted sense of humour, anything which appeals to... Continue Reading →

Things You Should Know – About Suffering

The Joke's On You by Andry-Shango Unfortunately suffering comes as a standard part of the package we get with our lives when we are born. The birthing process itself is one of pain, so I guess we should not be surprised that life can be painful. Everyone suffers, even those who never show it. Some... Continue Reading →

Narcissism is the Game, and You’re It

It always makes me chuckle, a slightly sad and tired chuckle, when I read certain things. In recent years Narcissism has become big news. For psychologists, pop psychologists, bloggers, and the media. That's the way of the world, something catches our attention and starts to trend, and off we go. Overexposure ensues, we get bored...

Don’t Speak Ill of the Dead

There are some things that you are not supposed to say, at least not out loud in public. People are very sensitive, and anything too frank, honest, blunt, outspoken… well… anything really in some cases… can make their ears ring with alarm bells and cause their mouths to open and tell you to shut up....

The Attack of the Qi Vampire

“You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do.” - C. J. Jung I have a friend who is very charming. They flatter others generously, throwing compliments around like confetti at a wedding. They put on great displays of fussing and caring, making sure other people are comfortable, happy, and aware that they... Continue Reading →

Internet Treasures: Jolly Jack’s Collected Curios

So... Sometimes I say I should do something and wish I hadn't said it. At other times I like the idea, but I don't follow through. And then there are those times when I say I'm going to do something, time passes, more time passes, and I eventually get around to doing it. When I... Continue Reading →

Life As A Video Game

Please note: As with many of my posts on WordPress, but not all - Silently Screaming is a new piece - this one was written a while ago for tumblr. I am enjoying reviewing my old tumblr posts to see which ones to transfer to WordPress, especially as many of them, like this one, are... Continue Reading →

The Self-Conscious Dance

Last night as I was drifting off to sleep, yet still half awake, I had a vision of sorts, a semi-dream. The image I saw was of a woman, her name was Georgina, though how I knew this, and why that name, I do not know. I was observing her from a distance. She was... Continue Reading →

Why Do You Blog?

Please note: This was written for my tumblr - Damaged & Dangerous - before I had a WordPress. But it applies equally to WordPress. I had a previous WordPress blog many Moons ago, which I deleted for reasons explained below. For every blog which exists, there is a story behind its creation. For some answering...

Silently Screaming

A friend I haven't heard from in a while, emailed me today asking me how I was. I stared at the message trying to think of an answer. Some time passed, then I logged out of my email and decided to deal with the task of replying later. I went onto Pinterest to distract myself... Continue Reading →

The Great I Am

Have you noticed how often people contradict themselves. I’m not talking about those who say one thing one minute and the exact opposite the next, they are very easy to spot if you are listening to what they are saying and have said. I mean those who make a statement about themselves, but then contradict... Continue Reading →

"Some memories don't even belong to you, they're just stories people told you about your life, which aren't necessarily true." - @UrsusAbstrusus

Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.

Yesterday I wrote about a friend who keeps telling me the same story, over and over again, and it made me think about the stories I repeat, the patterns which keep playing out in my life. This reminded me of something I wrote a while ago for my old blog. Since this blog is in... Continue Reading →

Pinteresting Memories

To be completely honest… or at least as honest as I'm ever going to be with others and with myself… although… no… I think I was about to tell a fib… anyway… the reason I joined Pinterest was because I liked the layout. It's how I would like my mind to archive memories and information.... Continue Reading →

Once Upon a Time in a Land Far Away

The weather is wild in this part of the world, bringing with it rain, chills, and gusting wind. Upon the wind came a memory of fairytales, fables, and fascinating stories which I absorbed as a child. I was a voracious reader, and loved to lose myself in tales of adventure, quests, and the weird, wonderful... Continue Reading →
