Dear friends & family,

Here are some ideas for the week ahead. Schedule in some chill time, too, however that works for you. Me, I'm going to start Steinbeck's East of Eden. Two people recommended it recently, and it was on my shelf. It's fat ~ "but fast," I'm told. 

If you still haven't seen the July CATALYST, click here .Pick up a hard copy at your favorite location, too. We've anticipated having this historic art on our cover for over a year, and hope you love it as much as we do.

I think there should be a Mars ritual, this week, so we can clearly mark the end of its eight-month-plus transit through Libra, a trek that began on December 7, 2013 and finally ends on Friday, July 25, as well as delineate the beginning of its seven-week transit through Scorpio, a journey that begins on July 25 and ends on September 13. I'm not sure what a "Bye-Bye Mars In Libra" ritual would look like, although I'm certain just about every Libra would (without a moment's hesitation) create an interpretative dance expressing both grief and relief...(read more).
