A Luminous Halo

"Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end." --Virginia Woolf

Taz Has a Birthday

Taz joined our family when she was about six months old. Her original family bequeathed me all her papers and records, which showed that she had been born on November 5, 2003. Taz shares a birthday with the likes of Eugene Debs, Ida Tarbell, and Ike Turner. Hellraisers all!

To celebrate, I made a pumpkin spice cake, and invited some of her favorite people and dogs. Here's a picture of Taz making a wish before blowing out the candle on her cake. I hoped she wished for something major, because it looks like all her dreams are going to come true pretty soon.

Susan Miller of astrologyzone.com has this to say about the outlook for Taz and fellow Scorpios in the coming month:

"This will be a glorious month, much different from birthday months of past years, and if there were ever a reason to celebrate, it's now....Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck, is orbiting very close to your ruler, Pluto, and when these powerhouse planets are found together in a chart, it always is an astrological signature for success....To give you an idea of how lucky this aspect is, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet both have Jupiter conjunct Pluto in their natal charts....Next month will be quite lucrative for you - money should come in bucketfuls. This will be money you earn, not win, giving you reason to be proud....If you work in television, radio, or print media, opportunities could easily arise from this area, either as a producer, writer, or other member of the staff, or as a guest."

I guess I'll let the cat out of the bag here, and reveal that Taz is working on a book deal. Seems like success is in the stars!
