I am optimistic that enough people are ready to see some change in our government. Personally, I believe we all need to begin with ourselves and not rely on the government to "solve" our problems but that is the ideal in me.
There are some things that we need to rely on them for and therefore I am being optimistic that this change is coming...
that we can focus on love rather than fear. Peace instead of war.
So please go out and vote...

Because we are exploring the half-Uranus cycle as the gateway to midlife’s transition, the sign Uranus is in natally secrets characteristics of the opposite sign as its “unlived life”. When any planet in transit comes to the opposition point to itself in the natal chart, a half-cycle is noted. And, as with all half-cycles, it simulates the lunation cycle as a “full planet phase”, which allows for the fullness of the experience of that planet to emerge and reflect back the messages and lessons learned. That is, the opposition, or the “half-cycle” is an illumination from the transiting planet and its manifestation of intent as it reflects back to the natal planet its “secret intent”.

Interestingly, I'm seeing this Uranus in Pisces in 7th house (relationships/Others) vs. Saturn in my 1st house (Me) as playing a key part in these feelings.
Saturn= structure, limitations, discipline. What are my limitations? Where is the balance between self-discipline, doing that which I need for myself and that of others. Structuring my time. I have gotten much better at this. It's probably the deeper lesson.. Self care through creating time for creating brings much happiness and balance to ME. and therefore, in turn, I can put out for others. The pendelum swings to extremes sometimes and I have to consistently bring it back to the happy medium.
Uranus in Pisces in the 7th... Freedom of Expression. Pisces is emotional, watery, peace and love and mystical, spiritual and Uranus there is stirring it up for me. Because it is in the house of others, it's being reflected back to me what it is I need. More heart!
First house rules the head, the 7th house... does it rule the heart? No. It rules the kidneys... one of the issues I had a few years ago. Kidneys had to do with fear, said Catherine.
mmmm. fear of intimacy ?
Is that what keeps one from being fully passionate, putting oneself out there, being EXPOSED. After all, the sign of Libra is the scales... Judgement!
enough analysis............for now :-)

The Angel Project

Here is another project I will be involved in for awhile. Mai-Liis is an amazing teacher and she is offering this class for the month of November and December. I'm ready to spread some angels around as well as keep some for myself :-)

Come join in and spread some angel love.

Here is what she says:
The Angel Project
Much more than a class!
Yes, I will be teaching the making of angels in paper, fabric, and mixed media. This online class will take a leisurely pace, beginning Nov. 1 and ending Dec. 30. We will be discussing intent, and perhaps also healing stones. The paper angels will be appropriate for gift tags, greeting cards, or tree ornaments. The 3-dimensional angels will make fantastic healing gifts for friends, charity, and yourself.Who can't use an angel or two? Let's place as many angels as possible on this earth!
This is what you do:
1. Remit $30 via PayPal to MaiLiis@ix.netcom.com
2. Go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CreativeSparks/ and ask to join. I will approve you immediately on receiving payment.
3. Tell your friends!
Remember, the cost comes out to be 50 cents a day, and you will not only be inspired but be making beautiful and useful gifts.

I'm neglecting this blog... as I've been posting more on the other two (left side are links) but today, this struck me and it's not about art....
or is it?
I have been having some crazy stuff happening to my body and when reading this from Daily Wisdom, by Lissa Coffey, I said, oh yes... this I am experiencing.
First poison ivy, which you already know if you've gone to the other blogs.. but now I have a rash, hives, on my body. Itchy as all hell! ( hell=not a good or fun experience).
"When one is pretending the entire body revolts." -Anais Nin
Self-awareness means also being in touch with the signals that our body gives us. We might try to "fake it" on the outside, but we can't fool ourselves. The body doesn't lie. When we get stressed out it can show up in our stomach, or our back, or as a headache. ( or all over my face........)
We can use those signals to give our body what it needs to come back into balance - whether it's a glass of water, a massage, or a nap! -Lissa Coffey

I may need something stronger than water, nap or massage... although I have been eating very lightly, fruits and water, to help cleanse my system.
Something obviously needs to escape from me, but what I am not sure.
Neck area. Speak up about what I need... HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not a ask for help sort of person, tending to rather do it myself - RELEASE CONTROL!!!
Belly area, 3rd chakra, the will center.
My needs, my will, conflicting with "out there"- herein lies a big problem.
Being nice. Always being nice, keeping the peace, compromising for the sake of not causing too many disturbances... Mrs. Nice Gal
How to vent in a non-threatening way?
Think Rash = anger trying to release itself. It's evident something needs to be released and my body is openly displaying this... no hiding.
Maybe it's all about resenting the time I put into projects, that take away from my art.
I want both worlds and I'm trying very hard to create a balance.
I could easily live in a dellusional world, LaLaLand... and stuff the "what about ME!!!!!" part inside......... but not this time, Dor.
It's screaming at you!
All I have to do is look in the mirror (yikes!) to reveal that what is inside me needs to be released on an emotional level.
And so, I take a deep breath and begin again to make some room for myself, my art.
