So we will have a surprise early in the week around how we move into this next astrological stage. Let’s hope it’s a nice one.
We are dealing with some things we’ve just committed to until March 2014. Lots of chaos in the household, lots of conversations this week about what is ahead. This sounds exhausting to me.
These conversations are to be actions, though, not talking about what we want (that moment is past, sorry), but talking with people as we manifest the things we said we wanted and are working toward. Re: meetings with prospective collaborators/troublemakers.
Thursday we are going to admit a failure or mistake we made or that is lurking around in our lives. We may ask someone to leave or admit something publicly.
And this weekend it’s one of those serious relationship moments. But think of it as holiday engagement season with projects in your life too. Venus is going to be retrograde for many of us until January, FYI. It is the time to commit to things this weekend, though.
We do have a lovely new moon to light our way as we make commitments and DO THINGS. Have a great week, star friends.
More astro fun this week on my gif horoscope Tumblr -
On the Pacific Northwest coast, Haida families inherit rights of association with certain ‘totemic’ species by virtue of legendary events in which their respective ancestors were involved. Stories of one clan descending from a supernatural salmon or another emerging ancestrally from a cedar tree are typical. But such tales do not merely recount legendary events of the past: they shape how people interpret the present. So Raven, the central character of Haida mythology, brought light and fire (by theft) to the world, and enabled the original Haida to emerge from a clamshell. And today, many Haidas continue to interpret the actions of particular living ravens as communicating to them, signalling messages of value from which their human relatives might learn.

The piece begins with a potlatch invitation, if you need even more reasons to read this one. I am obsessed with potlatches right now.
Since we’re talking numbers, we should mention that we asked Tumblr analytics firm Union Metrics to tell us just how big the fandom was on The Day of The Doctor…
And the answer came back in a single sentence:
Because of you, Saturday, November 23, 2013, The Day of The Doctor, was the biggest television event they’d ever seen on Tumblr.
5.0 million posts
4.9 million reblogs
3.1 million likes
1.0 million contributors
It was bigger than the VMAs, the Super Bowl, and the Grammys…
We’ve always said that the Doctor Who fandom on Tumblr was bigger on the inside. Now you have a better idea of just how big that inside is.
And what’s amazing is we’re still growing.
And congrats, Kenyatta. So much excellence.
