Learn about your sign. Your real sign.
You knew when I proposed my astro syllabus project, I’d start here.
Everyone who plays around with astrology in 2022 is familiar with what’s known as their “Big Three,” their Sun, Moon, and Rising signs.

I deleted my two audio posts. Recording them was fun—and I’ll play around with that medium going forward—but I’ve resolved the issues I whined about.(1)
I’m accepting my contradictions. Not doing the Libra thing of finding the ideal space between them. Resolution sponsored by several tidbits I’ve read over the last few days with this one at the center:
