Things You Should Know – About Curiosity

Curiosity killed the cat, satisfaction brought him back. So he could be curious again and again, needing far more than nine lives to keep him going. We are all born curious. It is the muse who inspires us to learn. Everything is fascinating. Everything needs to be explored. It pushes us to grow, to move.... Continue Reading →

Mercury in Aquarius

MercuryInAquarius by MoonVooDoo A million thoughts and ideas in the mind bumping into each other trying to get to the front of the queue and grab centre stage. Pay attention to me, and me, and me, and me. Some quiet, some loud, some singing, some screeching, some in foreign tongues, some in gibberish, some female,... Continue Reading →

Paloma Faith – Upside Down

Internet Treasures: Sabian Symbol Oracle

Sabian Symbols Oracle - Aquarius 21 There are days when I feel a vague sense of unease, I don't know why, which is part of why I am uneasy. One of the places I like to visit when this mood hits is The Oracle at Sabian Symbols created by Linda Hill. I often find that... Continue Reading →

The First Rule of Rule Breaking

Life sometimes feels like it is just one big rulebook, full of rules which start with the word ‘Don’t’. Some are helpful. These are the rules of experience. Someone, usually more than one person, has done these things and suffered the consequences, so the rule is created as a way of saying ‘I did this... Continue Reading →

Rebel Yellow

I'm a rebel. Not a particularly brave rebel. I don't rebel on behalf of a cause. I don't do it because I see an injustice and want to right a wrong. In fact I don't have any reason for being rebellious, it just seems to be my default position. I was born this way. It's... Continue Reading →

Consumed by the Flames of Obsession

What is obsession? What does it mean? What is its purpose? It must have a reason for hooking us, and reeling us in like helpless little fish. At first it is beautiful, a shiny, irresistible lure, teasing us, winking flirtatiously, and playfully dancing before our eyes, inviting us to grab hold of it. We bite,... Continue Reading →

Why Do Certain Songs Get Stuck In Our Heads?

I woke up this morning with a song stuck in my head. It didn't come from the dream I was having just before I awoke, at least, I don't remember any songs playing in my dream. They occasionally do. I recall many years ago Moon River playing so loudly in a dream that I had... Continue Reading →

Riddle of the Bear

Bizarro Earth by Dan Piraro I was thinking about my History teacher who told me all redheads were considered the devil's spawn in ancient times. He was a redhead. And he had a wickedly good sense of humour. He was also a great teacher. He liked to make the subjects he taught interesting, and of... Continue Reading →

That’s Stereotypical! Fuck it!

Capricorn - German Vogue's Swarovski Calendar for 2012Please note: Written about 3 months ago. Still applies. Fuck yeah! Oh, and there is some mild swearing. Yes, I consider fuck to be a mild oath. For me anyway. I often edit my use of swear words when in polite company. I sometimes do it with my... Continue Reading →

Snow Coffee in a Hobbit House

SnowDay by MoonVooDoo I still have no running water. Whatever is causing the problem, other than the below freezing temperature, has baffled the water company. They are hoping to fix it today, but with more snow predicted and falling as I write this, it may be difficult for them to work on the pipes. Or... Continue Reading →

A Moon Powered Train

DropIt by MoonVooDoo Please note: I wrote this last Winter. But since I've been getting strange messages from the universe via errant Monopoly cards found in my garden, one of which was Water Works, I thought I'd post this, and the post after this, which is a companion to this one. Oh, I wish I... Continue Reading →

MonopolyCards by MoonVooDoo

MonopolyCards by MoonVooDoo I keep finding these old Monopoly cards in my garden. First one was the Water Works card. Which made me laugh because this past Winter the temperatures dropped so low that the water supply pipe to my house froze. The water company responded very quickly, gave me loads of bottled water... they... Continue Reading →

Gathering Moss

Why is Kate Moss always naked. That was the question I asked myself in my dream last night. I sometimes have conversations with myself in my dreams. Usually it starts with a part of my sleeping consciousness waking up inside a dream and observing what is going on, then wondering why what is going on... Continue Reading →

The Places We Live…

A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens I recently came across a photograph on an architectural and interior design website which was of an apartment in Paris overlooking the Eiffel tower. At first glance I simply thought, wow, how attractive. Then I paused and looked again. The view was very familiar. So was the... Continue Reading →

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 →
