How to View & Fix a Problem
A problem is not an opportunity for an excuse. Take action; Find solution.
Be a Solution Generator unless it serves to be a Problem Finder.
1. Identify / acknowledge problem. 2. View problem outside of yourself. 3. Take a look at it. Ask other people to take a look at it.
Cup your hands, put your problem inside of it. Now the problem isn’t a part of you. It’s something to look at, external. And if you are not sure exactly what it is, then motion your cupped hands (filled with the problem) to someone else to look at. Ask them if they can help you with your problem. Make solutions internal and problems external.
Memorization: Tarot & Astrology
If you want to learn tarot or astrology well, do NOT memorize someone else’s tarot keywords or descriptions for the cards, nor astrology keywords and descriptions for the planets, signs, houses, etc.
I didn’t memorize astrology (because when I did that with tarot, it ruined my experience forever) just as I don’t encourage tarot readers to memorize tarot meanings. It does take a lot of personal thinking, research, and meditation about what something means, but it’s worth it.
Become ‘one’ with the material. Own the material. Yes, there’s a structure and if anything, that’s what I suggest memorizing. With the rest, I suggest ‘filling in the blanks’ on your own. And that’s how I teach.
iTunes Music Purchases
Well, I broke down and got an iTunes account and purchased my first card so I could take Thomas Dybdahl with me wherever I go! ha!
For now, I got songs that I didn’t have on a CD I have or one’s that are on a compilation album or where they are featured on the work of another artist.

Ear Wax Cleaning
They ought to make ear wax cleaning part of a spa feature. Felt so good to get that crap out of my ears. I can hear again! *woot*
Toronto Coffee, Baristas, and Beauty: te aro, TeAro, Te Aro
So I went into my favourite coffee shop today, te aro. I rushed myself in, was looking at the cookie section while what looked like a street bum, was talking up the cashier. He finally stopped talking and just left without anything.
Then I made my way into the same position, looked up and hark, the angels sing — the most perfect and stunning face I ever saw in person looked down at me. I stuttered out my order (his beauty invoked temporary amnesia as to why I was there… lol) and kept wondering why he was working there and that I wished I looked better after my recent bout with whatever and that my hair wasn’t in braids and a ugly hat. I’d also forgotten my wallet in the rental car so I had to go and get it. I did such a girl thing on the way back, I instinctively removed my braids and ugly hat before I got back in. haha
If you’re into Rhys Myers without the alcohol and addictions, this man will serve your eyes well. It must be hell exceeding the limits of ordinary beauty. I mean, really, I don’t think I could stand to face that face every morning. lol I couldn’t even bring myself to ask his sign, name, or anything like that. I was stunned and felt I was nowhere near his beauty level to even have such a discussion — again, I’d just be a stuttering fool.
Anyway, geez — that Aussie needs to be discovered (if he hasn’t already) by a modelling agency. Heck, maybe I’ll call a talent agent and let them know about this beyond hottie — lol…
The barista who made my mochas was the normal range of hottie material and a sweetie. I got a leaf with a little heart at the end. I was just so flustered with the eye candy, otherwise I would have taken a picture of that piece of art. Yum too! At least I let them know his work of art was beautiful and he smiled with pride. Yay!
Who needs to go to a watering hole when you can go to te aro and check out the hotties behind the bar and enjoy a delish beverage.
The 6th House: Being Sick But Still Being Able to Do Your House Thing…
After about two weeks of aches, pains, and chills, I’m finally feeling more like myself.
What many find strange is that I am often still able to communicate in one way, shape, or form — even if I’m feverishly sick. And I can do errands of a short distance as well — mind you, I often have felt like I was in a fog while doing it! Gee, I even once worked through pneumonia until it got really bad and I had to finally take the time off to recover.
The last couple of weeks on Astrogasm is an example of continuing to communicate, while feeling sick. However, a lot of the posts were (and will continue to be) from something I wrote previously — many unpublished. What I considered a stub from another blog, has become a full-on post in this blog. This is so Gemini, 5th / 6th house, which means I get a lot of joy publishing in this blog on a daily basis. And many of the posts were /are scheduled. But I still got my word out, even though I was sick.
Anyway, I think the reason why I can still communicate (knock on digital wood) under the influence, is that I have Gemini on the 6th. What does go down the tube is focus, accuracy, speed, and consistency. Anything that takes effort to think about, isn’t going to get done or will take much longer than it normally does. I’m also often ‘out of verbal and cerebral character’ when sick.
So that makes me wonder: What sign is on your 6th? Do you find you can still do that 6th house thing even though most people would find it odd given you’re sick?
