Earth Day April 22, 2010

First Photo of Earth from Space

In honor of you, one of my fellow earthlings, I have rounded up a history of Earth Day which we earthlings celebrate tomorrow, April 22.

Guess we should all be grateful that our planet still exists to orbit in its course in spite of what chemical compounds, plastics, toxins, and other pollutants have done to rearrange the place, and all for corporate profits and perhaps a smidge of population control tactics tossed in, sad to say.

And speaking of polluting the earth, have you ever visited my Dreamyfish Art collection? The blog’s main theme (besides its intimate portraits of tropical fishies which I am prone to drawing) is: Save Our Oceans!

Just thought you might wish to know. Oh, and you’ll find a Marine News feed there as well to help you catch up on environmental and oceanic news stories.

Jupiter to Pisces 1.17.10 @ 8:17 pm est

This evening, Jan 17, 2010, at 8:17 pm est, jolly Jupiter enters Pisces, sign of the Two Fishes, one swimming up into higher realms, one swimming down to the depths. Pisces is, of course, an intuitive Water sign fitting for oceanic themes and events while Aquarius is a mental sign. This change of resonance to Pisces will be quite a difference of expression for the Hierophant, Guru, and abundance-bringer, Jupiter.

In Water signs, Jupiter tends to stimulate and expand inner faith and compassion – kind of a “What the World Needs Now” transit, imo. Opportunities may come along when we follow intuitive yearnings for Jupiter’s offers of reward must be encouraged by taking action.

Emotional reserves are abundant now, something the people of Haiti (and the populace of the next catastrophe) will benefit from once the initial shock of the recent quake softens, if indeed it can. Having Jupiter enter sympathetic Pisces so soon after the disaster will be good for donations since this is a sensitive and sharing placement for the planet of growth and abundance.

In Astrology, Jupiter is said to be dignified in Pisces, its sign of rulership, and brings to the collective a deep desire to be of service (or to escape from life’s difficulties through indulgence in negative behaviors. Abstain!)

The working class (though reduced to more inertia by the day), organized labor, and the have-nots may all benefit in some way during Jupiter’s transit of Pisces which extends to about June 7, 2010 when Jupiter conjoins the Aries Point and lumbers into Mars-ruled Aries for a cameo appearance.

Then it’s back to Pisces around Sept 10, 2010 for a last watery fishing expedition until entering pioneering Aries again on or about Jan 23, 2011. This time frame covers the November 2010 elections when the GOP hopes to squelch the Dems’ hold on the House – Jupiter signifies the R Party while Saturn = the Democratic Party in Mundane Astrology.

My intuition says that unless the R Party reaches down deep in its soul (assuming ‘it’ can be said to have one) and pulls a significant amount of true compassion out of the rabbit’s hat than they’ve hitherto shown, the have-nots won’t be in a mood for another GOP revolution. Too many people are suffering and who honestly could prefer a second Bush-esque nightmare with the Rs’ usual “entitlement” allergies?

Of course, the 2008 financial collapse makes good cover for curtailing benefits for the neediest among us, doesn’t it? Yet wise Jupiter in compassionate Pisces knows intrinsically that, Yes! We really are our brothers’ keepers.

While in dreamy Pisces, Jupiter will have to take risks, including the risk of being severely criticized, in order to promote a higher cause, mission, or goal. So perhaps Jupiter in Pisces will bring a ‘softening’ in some way though one suspects that the GOP probably has enough inner steel to withstand such a change in attitude. (We’ll see!)

This transit means that keeping one’s feet on the ground is a caution and over-inflated egos are distinct possibilities. Yes, ‘inflated egos’ sounds more like the Republican Party members we’ve come to know…or like politicians of any stripe, for that matter.

Well, it’s true that I am of the populist persuasion, so having Jupiter in Pisces seems an improvement for society (as long as ‘abundance of water’ isn’t a problem – except in drought regions please.) This improvement may bring the collective (Pisces) some sorely needed altruistic actions and philanthropy, yet extravagance may be part of the Jupiterian picture as well.

A breadth of vision and an intuitive understanding of others will be noticeable, perhaps especially so when electrified technocrat and genius Uranus joins idealistic Jupiter on June 8, 2010 @ Aries Point. Their hook-up at AP (a World Point of manifestation) is a ‘scientific breakthrough’ indicator; their Great Conjunction/s will repeat twice more into January 2011, but in late degrees of Pisces.

There is a long list of notable folk who were born with Jupiter in Pisces (therefore, a cyclic 12-year Jupiter Return will occur soon for each one, even if they are deceased; their works or names may resurface in the collective imagination or consciousness in a special way (an award?) during this time…very Piscean, the Collective Unconscious!) so let me add a few of their names here:

Stevie Wonder, Michael Jordan, Leon Trotsky, Franz Schubert, Lawrence Welk, Edgar Alan Poe, Louisa May Alcott, Sarah Bernhardt, Bob Hope (there’s a Jupiterian name!), Frank Sinatra, Abdul Baha, Evangeline Adams, Isabel Hickey, and Sigmund Freud.

And if you are an investor, you may wish during this transit to consider putting money (Jupiter) into Piscean-related areas such as oceans, fishing, liquids of all kinds including oil and beverages, pharmaceuticals, shoes, feet, make-up or acting pursuits – or perhaps something Psychology related.

Why, even Fish or Marine-themed Art may be a good investment with Jupiter in Pisces!

May I suggest an underwater browse of botanical fish portraits in my Jude Cowell Art Shop at Zazzle? ;p

Now here’s ‘Black striped butterfish’ to greet you as Jupiter enters Pisces – the little fellow’s portrait is included my 2010 Dreamyfish Art Calendar, as linked above:

There’s a Blue Tiger watching you!

Blue Tiger small icon A Blue Tiger from my new Blue Tiger Art Shop is watching you very closely to see what you’ll do next…

…perhaps you’ll feed your wilder side and check out Blue Tiger Art’s baby and kids’ clothing there, or view a few pair of casual shoes with orignal art designs from Jude Cowell Art at Zazzle.

‘Pink Tiger Pink Moon’ appears along with ‘Grey Tiger’, Dreamyfish Art designs of botanical fish drawings, plus a few Cosmic themes for your designer neckties…hmmm?

So have you been to Maisy’s Lair?

Your cordial invitation to view new Art has arrived:

So have you been to Maisy’s Lair?
I ask because she likes to share
awaiting you with bloom in vase
a warmly smile upon her face
for Boudoir Blossoms are her style
do visit Maisy for a while
and leave behind your heavy care
relax and dream in Maisy’s Lair!

(Cosmic Persona Designs contains some mild adult content, but it’s only Art!)

You’re also cordially invited to browse my new Zazzle Shop of Art with Wall Posters, mousepads, and such at Jude Cowell Art if you wish.

You’ll find some Dreamyfish Art botanical fish portraits there with Cosmic, Moon, and Fairy Art images coming soon. Why, perhaps a Boudoir Blossom or two will make a cameo appearance when their schedules permit!

Blackbeard and his gold

As of tomorrow, Thursday, I’m officially off on a spree with family to one of the islands of North Carolina, where notorious pirate Blackbeard ostensibly hid fabulous treasure on islands that are now turtle protection zones.

(Actually, all the islands along with Carolina coast say that they have the X-spot of Blackbeard’s golden goodies, you just have to find it har har me matey.)

Though I’ve not spied an ocean in some time, I hear credible reports that it’s still there with beaches of lovely sand so perfect for a 3-year-old to sift through.

And speaking of oceans and fish, here’s a False Senator wrasse who wishes to greet you.

Back next week with a treasure of happy memories in tow and perhaps an interesting photo or two!

Frisky Friday Art: a slideshow link

This. is. an. Art. Experiment.

Wonder if a link to my Spaces Live blog will take you to a display of an
Art Slideshow with a variety of themes for viewing, as you like.

My sort of usual suspects are there to represent these imprints: Dreamyfish Art, Cosmic Persona Designs, and Secret Moon Art, too.

Plus, a ‘Boudoir Blossoms’ image may show up in the mix as well.

Anyway, it’s the closest to Frisky Friday Art I have for you this week especially since images use So Much Space here on WordPress, don’t they?

Obama’s major address 4.14.09

Pres. Obama is delivering what is being billed by his staff as a ‘major address’ today at Georgetown University and will talk about the financial mess he ‘inherited’ in January, the steps his administration has taken, and what else will be done concerning the Big Three: housing, banking, and financial industries.

These are three spots of the US financial system that could use Obama magic to pull a rabbit (-fish) out of a hat.

Perhaps he can use the hat from the Sabian Symbol for the US Inaugural Ascendant degree ’15 Taurus’ with the ASC representing the office of the president (noon, Jan 20, 2009, Capitol Bldg, DC):

‘A Man with Rakish Silk Hat, Muffled, Braves the Storm.’ (SolarFire.)

Dane Rudhyar gives the Keynote of this degree as:

‘The courage needed to meet the crises precipitated by social ambition.

What is revealed here is CHARACTER under adverse circumstances.’

Well, adverse circumstances we got plenty of – it’s character that’s been sorely lacking.
