A Special Time

Here we are, 26 days into the new year, and in five more days, it will be February. February has also been a special month for me. Of course, it’s my birthday month, and for Aquarians in general, but there’s more.

February is the month with the least amount days; it’s unique and stands out from all the rest because it has only 28 days, and because of this, it’s the only month that receives a very special additional day (29) once every four years when there’s a leap year.

February is also black history month, Valentine’s Day is on the 14th, and President’s Day is on the 21st. I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but Valentine was an actual person; he was a Saint, Bishop, and Martyr. Saint Valentine was born in the early 200s AD, I think, and he lived in the area of Italy during the Roman Empire.

Famous people born in February:

Gertrude Stein February 3, 1874, Rosa Parks February 4, 1913, Laura Ingalls Wilder February 7, 1867, Thomas Edison February 11, 1846, Charles Darwin February 12, 1809, Galileo Galilei February 15, 1564, George Washington February 22, 1732, Elizabeth Taylor February 27, 1932, Ice-T February 16, 1958, Ashton Kutcher February 7, 1978, Michael Jordan February 16, 1963, Chris Rock February 7, 1965. and the list goes on and on for a very log time.

February is the last full month of winter, and it is also considered the month of purification! When you have some free time, take a look at all the famous people who were born under the same astrological sign as you. It gives a little guidance and a little insight into what abilities and talents you might have as well.

Alright my friends, have a wonderful evening.

Atlantis; What If?

I never took the time to read Plato’s account of Atlantis, which happens to the source of everything we know about Atlantis. From what I’ve heard it’s not really long and leaves more to the imagination than we’d like to admit, but what if?

What if there was no Atlantis? What if this story about an island full of technologically advanced human beings that sunk below the Atlantic after some cataclysmic event never happened?

What if, Plato made up the story after visiting an island sometime during his lifetime?

I pulled this picture off Wikipedia-Atlantis. Athanasius Kircher‘s map of Atlantis, placing it in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, from Mundus Subterraneus 1669, published in Amsterdam. The map is oriented with south at the top.

The picture on the left is a photo of Atlantis. If you look closely, you will notice Africa to the left, and America to the right. If this is accurate then that means Atlantis would’ve been in the Pacific Ocean somewhere off the Western Coast of the United States, and not the Atlantic Ocean like everyone claims.

This picture I snapped with my camera of an island I saw on Google Map.

The picture on the right is of an island I found on Google Maps. The island is named Mai’ao, and it’s located in the Pacific Ocean. Can you see the similarity between photos? They’re similar-eerily similar.

If what I say doesn’t resonate with you, then consider this; there are many scattered islands in the Pacific Ocean. Maybe, at a time long long ago, they were together and formed one huge land mass in between Africa and America in the Pacific Ocean.

It’s a Journey and We’re Both Going

I was thinking about this the other day, and really, it’s because of where I’m at in the Smorgasbord series. Wait? What? 🤣 I know what you’re thinking. When did Smorgasbord become a series?

Most of you who follow along with this blog know I wrote my first book during the spring of 2020, which was then published and available for purchase in I think March of 2021. Well, as soon as I finished writing A Collection of Thoughts Experiences and Stories, I wrote the sequel, Smorgasbord 2 Catch Up and Relish.

Smorgasbord 2 is going through the publication process as we speak, and we could be looking at a finished product available for purchase within a month or two. I will have a release date for you, something I never got for the first book, and I should have that soon.

As I’m sitting here now writing Smorgasbord 3, I started thinking about all three as a series. I don’t want to give to much away, but you’ll understand what I’m talking about when you pick up the second book. What I will say is that I’ve written them so that if I ever decided to create one big book they would all fit together.

Smorgasbord has sections I, II, and III. Smorgasbord 2 has sections IV, V, VI, and Smorgasbord 3 will have VII, VIII, and IX. I don’t like to talk about myself or my work, I leave the reviews and the analysis to all of you, and part of the reason for that is because I think everyone who reads my work will get something personal out of it, and I don’t want to persuade or compromise that in any way.

But from what I can see, Smorgasbord is becoming a series or a collection, and by the time you read the third book, you’ll notice the journey.

It’s a journey we’ll have been on together for probably three or four years by that time as we continue making sense of our lives and the world around us.

Uranus Transit

As you know, I’ve been reading Barbara Hand Clow’s book, Chiron Rainbow Bridge Between the Inner and Outer Planets, and in the book, Clow talks about three major transits that occur during our lives; the Chiron square, the Saturn return, and the Uranus opposition to itself. I do agree with that.

These are the times when it’s crucial to put in the self-work. My Uranus opposition to itself is coming up so I’m going to break that down, and hopefully, by me doing that, it will make it easier for you to do the same if you happen to be in the same situation. Let me start by explaining what the hell this all means, because I know there are a lot of people who are interested in astrology and would like to follow it, but find it difficult to learn on their own.

My interest for astrology came out of nowhere back in 2007, but I can’t sit here and say I’ve been feverishly studying it since. It’s been more of a side thing or a hobby that I study, practice, and put to use in my spare time. The more you live the more you understand so it’s best to take astrology in stride-not to mention the system is so vast in information that it can be overwhelming and confusing. Take your time with it.

In my natal chart, Uranus is in the 5th house on the 25th degree of Scorpio. An opposition is when you have two planets directly across from one another; an opposition is an aspect of 180 degrees. The Uranus opposition occurs around the age of 42, but it could be later because Uranus goes retrograde and that slows the transit or it’s path around the zodiac. When it finally reaches opposition to itself, it will be directly across from where it was when you were born, or its position in your birth chart. For me, that’s Taurus 25 degrees just past the 11th house cusp.

Uranus in Taurus Analysis

Taurus is the sign of people who revel in the pleasures of life. It’s about security, comfort, and the warmth of relaxing in the home environment. It’s care. The flip side to this is that Taurus can be bullish, willful and stubborn, but not because they’re assholes. The issue is that Taurus is kind, devoted, and loyal-sometimes it hard to let things go.

Uranus is the planet of invention, rebellion, reformation, and unpredictable changes. It’s about discovery, independence, and improv. Uranus brings liberation, genius, science, originality, and breakthroughs.

As Uranus transits the fixed, feminine, and negatively energized earth sign that is Taurus, he will shake it up-house included. He will wake it up with sudden awareness and lighting insight so that the necessary changes can be made. Changes that ultimately promote growth and evolution.

Good luck!

Nooz Now

What’s up everyone!

Listen to this shit. Between 1966 and 2003, there was a sports doctor who worked at the University Michigan, Robert Anderson was his name. During that 37-year-period, he was accused of sexually assaulting 1,050 students during routine checkups. The University of Michigan has agreed to payout $490 million to over a 1,000 people who’ve claimed they were assault victims. That’s a lot of people! A lot of money too! Check out the story below.

So, today is the 19th of January. How is 2022 treating you so far? How are you treating yourself? Would you like a tip on how you can become a better person? Take responsibility for your actions and decisions.

Sometimes people like to use other people to justify why they do what they do. You know, like, “I couldn’t go to work today because the guy on my block is really depressed and needed someone to talk to,” and then we find out there’s nothing wrong with the guy on your block; you’re just lost and can’t figure out your own life. Don’t do that to people.

Anyways..

I must admit, it felt pretty darn good to be able to deliver you that breaking story about the gas station shooting. I graduated college in 2003, that almost 20 years ago, and my degree is a B.A. A Bachelor of Arts in Arts & Communication and Journalism. I’m a natural writer, and the work of a journalist is a perfect fit for my skill set, however, I never pursued a career in journalism.

When I passed that crime scene the other day, I new I couldn’t let the opportunity pass. If it wasn’t for an appointment I had at 9 o’clock, I would’ve stopped on the spot to cover it. So I went to the appointment, which lasted 20 minutes, and then I drove back.

I guess the exciting part was having an opportunity to put my training to use. Finally, after 20 years I felt like my college education was paying off. And to just go through the process of covering a story from being on scene, obtaining information, and writing it was fulfilling. That’s the word I used to describe that experience, fulfilling.

Have a wonderful evening and a blessed day tomorrow.

Capricorn One

All hail the journalist! The real journalist who’s committed to finding the truth and getting to the bottom of a story is a Hero because the American public needs and deserves the truth.

Let me just give you my opinion about how this movie came to me because it has been out a long time (Initial Release Date 12/17/1977) and yet, I’ve never even heard of it. So, I think this movie came to me because I’ve been reading Barbara Hand Clow’s book, Chiron Rainbow Bridge Between the Inner and Outer Planets. Her book is about the discovery of the planetary body, Chiron, and how its discovery coincides with an age of spiritual progress and healing on Earth. The discovery date for Chiron was 11/1/1977. When a planetary body is first discovered, trends in the culture are analyzed to create an archetype for its energies, but Clow didn’t mention Capricorn One.

What a movie! We rated it 5 out of 5 Clapboards.

Capricorn One

Initial Release: December 17, 1977

Director: Peter Hyams

Producer: Paul N. Lazarus III

Cast: James Brolin, Elliot Gould, Sam Waterston, O.J. Simpson, Brenda Vaccaro, and Hal Holbrook

With under 30 seconds until launch, the flight crew is abruptly interrupted and forced to evacuate the cockpit of Capricorn One, which is headed to Mars. The astronauts (Brolin, Gould, Simpson) were immediately taken to a hidden facility where they learned the Mars mission was going to be faked. They were asked to cooperate and help coordinate the hoax, but these gentlemen were devastated. They joined NASA because conquering the final frontier (space) was their dream. They were honest, they believed, and their families believed.

Luckily a journalist was starting to pick up on the clues, and with his life in jeopardy, he continued pursuing the story. Eventually, he saved the day, and help bring the truth to light.

If government coverups and space travel interest you then this movie is a must see. You’ll be blown away by how easily the American public can be deceived, and the lengths special interest groups and government personnel will go to present, coverup, and perpetuate a lie.

Writing Through Blocks

Sometimes you have to write because you can’t write. How many times have you looked at a pad or a sheet of paper and nothing came out? You’re frozen. You drew a blank. So, the idea is to break through those blocks. If concentration is an issue, don’t worry. Pick up the pen and write-keep writing until you’re focused and writing becomes fluid.

What Would You Do?

The title of this post is an actual question I’d like you to think about. The Twilight Zone was turned into a television series in the 80s, and it was the second episode I believe that was titled “Button Button” where a stranger wearing a suit shows up at a random home with a special box.

There’s an ordinary couple living there who seem a little squirrely to me, but that’s beside the point; Anyway, the stranger gives a box with a button inside it to the woman living in the house, and he explains to her that if she opens the box and pushes the button she’ll be given $200,000 by him, and at the same time, a random person who they don’t know will die.

She has, I think 24-hours to decide. She relays the story to her husband and they argue about it for while, but eventually, they end up pushing the button.

What would you do?

Would you press the button?

Hearst Magazine, One of Many

I logged onto the Hearst Media website today to find out if they’re still offering opportunities for writers and editors, and this is what I saw:

As part of its continued efforts to maintain a safe workplace for employees, Hearst Magazines requires that all employees who receive a written offer of employment on or after November 15, 2021, be fully vaccinated (as defined by the CDC) against the coronavirus by the first day of employment as a condition of employment, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

More and more places of employment are forcing vaccinations on their employees, and they’re blaming the CDC and the Federal Government.

We all know that it is NOT required by law to get vaccinated, so how are companies like Hurst Media getting away with bullying the small minority that doesn’t want to be vaccinated?

We all know that we as individuals have the final say over what goes into our bodies so why are people being forced to chose between their careers and vaccinations.

How are private companies getting away with forcing vaccinations on their emplyees?

Can someone please address this issue. How are we supposed to move forward, and pursue life liberty and happiness if we can’t get past this?
