Jude's Threshold

A Tapestry Blog of Astrology, Politics, and Social Concerns

New Astrology Blog by Mary Plumb!

Now this is getting good: Mary Plumb, whom you’ve read in the most excellent American astrology magazine, The Mountain Astrologer, has a new blog called A New Day.

In her recent post, Mary has kindly mentioned one of my blogs (thanks, Mary!) but that’s not the reason I post this: it’s partially meant as a shout-out to Mary’s new blog and partially to give one blogger’s view on the state of Astrology blogging 2010.

George Bush had been crazily ‘re-elected’ when I began writing my first blog in October 2005 using Astrology as a microscope to squint upclose at squirmy Politics, and there were a lot fewer blogs available offering or using Astrology than there are now. In 2010, you can toss your browser (as if you still use one!) in any direction on the Internet and find a wide assortment of them at your disposal – and most with free content.

Some of the earlier blogs I once read have fallen away or been discontinued and that’s understandable: sometimes real world involvements interfere with my blogging time as well. Or perhaps an author’s interest wanes for this time-consuming task or their work schedules change.

My interest doesn’t wane as much as fluctuate for though having four planets in Capricorn (the sign of Politics, Government, Law, and Business) sometimes I’ve simply had all the politicians my craw can stand for a day or two and a mental health break is necessary. (The 24/7 cameras have only made them worse!)

So when I find that an astrologer the caliber of Mary Plumb will be blogging regularly, I take note – there are insights galore and learning afoot! No one astrologer can study all the charts desired by any audience or required by any topic so I am happy and encouraged that Mary is adding her measured voice to the online symphony of astro-information.

May the venerable art continue to bring its telescopic and microscopic abilities and talents – and the element of timing – to the Web!

Update Nov 9: the above post may have been published too eagerly since I followed the lead of a blog unknown to me which called Mary’s blog ‘new’ – mea culpa. Please pardon, if so! jc

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
