Berlin friends, friends that are in Berlin tomorrow please make sure to come to Circle Culture in Gipsstrasse in Mitte for an inspiring panel talk with two amazing individuals that will discuss the topic of obsolescence and metamorphosis from both an artist as well as a scientist view point – and everything in between.
If we were to overlay the Hero’s Journey over the Mars synodic cycle, we are reaching the Threshold. And my friends, this is important to know about. There are many other reasons to turn your ear to Mars at the moment, but being a lover of planetary cycles and their night sky glory, this is the one I’m most pulled by. I hope you find inspiration in it.
It’s time to circle up. I’m sure we have all gathered many stories since the last one, and so I thought of no better time to reintroduce the Astrology Circle in 2018 than with Mars. Around the time of the event, he will be moving into Capricorn (exalted), stepping Out of Bounds, and crossing the “threshold” of his journey as he squares the Sun. There is a great battle coming . And for each of us, it is waged in the center of our own hearts and charts. Join our “seance” as we conjure Mars into our Circle and learn everything we can about what needs to be done to take our lives to the next level.

See you there!!!

I talk to Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez of Democracy Now about how bad things are in Syria, how we got here and where it’s headed. Interview with me and Syrian-Canadian researcher Yazan al-Saadi starts around minute 19:00 of this video, talking, among other things, about people power vs state power, collective responsibility and the lack of mechanisms to hold all states accountable.
Break the stigma!
“I had known many of these people for years, yet I never knew how much mental illness affected their families. It made me sad and then angry. Why does talking about mental health in your family have to be such a secret? Why are we not sharing our experiences?
It’s the same reason my husband asked me to keep his secret all those years ago. He thought he should have been able to handle it.
I thought I should have been able to handle it.
Over a decade later, I am still trying to handle it. The experience has scarred me, and our marriage. The stigma and silence surrounding mental illness not only prevents individuals from getting the crucial help they need, it stops their partners, siblings, parents and children from receiving the essential support they need. It took me years to realize that regardless of whether or not my husband wants to share his story of mental illness, I need to share mine.
Today, my husband is no longer depressed. He is open about his history of mental illness and he has challenged the stigma himself. He recognizes the impact the silence had on each of us individually as well as together, and he supports me in speaking out.”
Yesterday we wrote about the border area between Syria and Israel-held Golan: “The area is also a flash point for tensions between Israel and Iran as Hezbollah digs in near the Israeli-held Golan Heights.”
Today this happened. Just in case anyone thought Syria was getting boring….

If you read French, read this book, “The Book Smugglers of Daraya,” by Delphine Minoui, one of France’s greatest Mideast journalists, about the secret library maintained by a group of civilian activists in the besieged Damascus suburbs of Darayya. Their work began with a pre-revolution underground study group about progressive Islam. Now their town, retaken by the government, is empty and they are refugees.
