Gemini New Moon: You Name It

I f you’ve ever known a Gemini person (and chances are good you have, since they seem to know everyone), you’ve probably noticed their fondness for nicknames. The Mercury-ruled are staggeringly adept at using just a word or two to sum up an entire human being. This is a mixed blessing, since as we all know too well, nicknames are the ammunition of choice in the adolescent war on self-esteem. “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names can never hurt me,” was the favored incantation to wa...

This is what aliens would 'hear' if they flew by Earth

There is no sound in space, but if there was, this is what it might sound like passing by Earth.A spacecraft bound for Mercury recorded data while swinging around our planet, and that data was converted into sound.Yes, in space no one can hear you scream, but this is still some chill stuff. First off, let's be clear what we mean by "hear" here. (Here, here!)Sound, as we know it, requires air. What our ears capture is actually oscillating waves of fluctuating air pressure. Cilia, fibers in our e...

Weekly Astrology Forecast April 27 – May 3, 2020

Excerpt from Patreon – It’s still Mercury’s story on April 28 as he moves into a square with Saturn. It’s a mental block, a problem we can’t solve, a big fat ‘no’ when we were hoping for a ‘yes’. Sometimes this aspect can manifest as getting stuck in negative thinking, especially as Mercury is now in muddy Taurus. It’s possible that we’re also resisting thinking about changes that we need to make. Yet at the same time, Mercury sextiles Ceres encourages us to find ways to thrive in less than idea...

Watchdog wants auto insurance hikes suspended amid COVID-19

A Los Angeles-based watchdog group is urging California Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara to suspend all auto insurance rate hikes through Sept. 1 or for the duration of shelter-in-place restrictions, whichever comes later. Consumer Watchdog notes that Californians are doing virtually no driving amid the COVID-19 pandemic, other than occasional trips to the supermarket. A UC Davis report shows accidents have been reduced by at least half as of April 11, the organization said, yet the state Dep...

A pandemic seems like a great time to *checks notes* weaken regulations on toxic pollutants?

In case you weren't panicking enough about the way that ambient environmental factors might be surreptitiously destroying your body, the EPA decided that right now would be a great time to change the rules about how they calculate the risk associated with mercury and other toxic metal factory byproducts. From  : The new Environmental Protection Agency rule does not eliminate restrictions on the release of mercury, a heavy metal linked to brain damage. Instead, it creates a new method of calcula...

Trump Administration Courageously Ignores the Benefits of Reducing Toxic Mercury Emissions

Humans have long known the health dangers of mercury, but that won’t stop the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from doing away with regulations designed to reduce emissions and protect public health. The agency released an update on Thursday that undermines a key rule to lower mercury emissions from coal plants.Read more...

Junkyard Find: 1983 Mercury Marquis Sedan

Ford squeezed every possible nickel of value out of the rear-wheel-drive Fox platform during its near-20-year production run (longer than that, if you accept the SN95 Mustang as a Fox), and I enjoy tracking down as many Fox variants as possible while I march up and down the rows of my favorite car graveyards.

Ancient Mercury Had the Right Stuff For Life, Surprising New Research Suggests

Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, is one of the last places we think about when considering the potential for life in the solar system.

Mercury’s extremely hot temperatures might help ice form on its surface

Ice on Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, may seem impossible. But, could scorching temperatures on that world help form ice? The scorching surface of Mercury, where temperatures can reach 400 degrees Celsius (750 Fahrenheit), may seem to be the last place astronomers might find ice. However, this enormous heat could play a significant role in the formation of ice on Mercury, a new study reveals. Many astronomers believe that most of the water on the Mercury was likely delivered to the surf...

Love Horoscope for the Week of March 16

On Monday, the gravitational field of a previously-undetected gigantic space whale will cause the planet Mercury to go retrograde again. Ha! Kidding. But seriously, it may very well seem that way. On Monday, Mercury enters Pisces. As you may know, Pisces is considered to be a debilitated placement for Mercury. When it’s in that sign, Mercury doesn’t do its best with the facts, figures and details that planet is normally in charge of. On top of that, Mercury is still in what’s called “the shad...

Rare Rides: The Extra THICC 1970 Mercury Marauder X-100

We all recall the Panther-based Mercury Marauder as the last gasp of large, sporty motoring from Mercury. Today’s Rare Ride is the predecessor everyone forgot — the 219-inch Marauder X-100.

March 2020 Astrology Forecast

Well, after a foray into making videos for the monthly forecast, I’m back to writing it instead. Honestly, the videos take FOREVER to make and if I am investing that much time and energy into a video, I want it to be on content that is ‘green’ rather than transient – there speaks my Sun in Taurus! So, sorry to jump about but well, sometimes you just have to give things a try to see what works. Experimentation is certainly a theme for me at the moment as Uranus prepares to move into my 10th house...

Your Horoscope This Week

If you’ve been looking for motivation to start anew, you’ll be supported on Sunday. A New Moon enters Pisces at 10:31 a.m. EST, as Mars trines Uranus. The new Moon encourages us to take action and create change. So this is an excellent day to meditate on our desires. Ask yourself what you want and how you can achieve it. Also on Sunday, material Venus squares against bountiful Jupiter. This makes us more prone to over-indulgence, so avoid going overboard. On Wednesday, a retrograde Mercury is se...

Love Horoscope for the Week of February 24

Before we get to your weekly dose of love and romance, we need to talk. And I mean that literally, because Mercury is still retrograde. Let’s be honest here: Pisces is not the greatest neighborhood for Mercury to be hanging out in at the best of times. Mercury in Pisces is much better at crafting a thoughtful apology letter than it is at figuring out who to send it to, or whether or not that apology is actually needed. Mercury is getting a number of aspects this week that will make it harder to ...

Tarotscopes that slay: New moon in Pisces

Pisces Season is a mystery.  The last sign of the Zodiac doesn’t promise answers to the most profound of life’s questions– it only promises to take us deeper into the questions themselves.  Depending on your relationship with the unknown, Pisces Season can either be a mystical, creative time full of surprise or a miserable slog through your own hidden lose ends.  I’ve had both, sometimes concurrently. I think of Pisces as the sign of the dreamtime, the void and the invisible world. Pisces is th...

The New Moon Is In Pisces, & We’ve Got Love On Our Minds

Although we can’t see it, we know it’s there. No, we’re not talking about love. We’re talking about the new moon, which rises in Pisces on February 23. In astrology, new moons are a time for new beginnings and introspection. They’re also a time to start planning ahead, particularly for the next six months, until the full moon rises in the same sign and completes our journey. (For Pisces, that will happen on September 2.) In astrology, the sign of the Fish is known for strong emotions, i...
