This is the next installment in the occasional series I call Art is My Medicine ~ highlighting the healing magic of visual art. These past few days we have been graced with both a Neptune Sun conjunction and Pisces Sun trine Scorpio Moon. These energies naturally lead me to revel in the boundless magnificence of all creative endeavors. On this auspicious Leap Day I am featuring the paintings of Mikalojus Ciurlionis. A couple of his masterpieces can also be found here. Join me as I ride the waves of colour, texture, and interplay of light.

Really awful photoshop job but I did it myself and so there it is. Background image: “Dust and the Helix Nebula” (NASA, JPL-Caltech, Kate Su, Steward Obs, U. Arizona, et al., 2008). Why I am off center: because when I pasted my mug shot to the center it looked like I had a halo and that’s just weird. I don’t have a halo. So I put me off to the side. You should be focusing on the helix nebula anyway.
I completed a manuscript on astrology. Yeah, like I wrote a book. The final manuscript came out to a total of 259,428 words. Just to give you a sense, that’s fatter than Holistic Tarot. But instead of publishing it, I have found a pretty cool, customized use for that manuscript (at least for now) and that’s what this post is about– an advertisement and self-promotion post, really, to get you to…

Your weekly horoscope for February 29th, 2016
Aries (3/21 – 4/19): You will find yourself filled with energy this week when a catastrophe strikes your nuclear power plant.
Taurus (4/20 – 5/20): When things get too stressful then just remember to enjoy the little things in life. Like rabbits and kittens. Any smaller than that, though, and you get spiders and ants and bacteria so I guess you can’t enjoy the really little things in life. Just focus on the sorta little things.
Gemini (5/21 – 6/20): Sometimes it feels like you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. You should really consider a chiropractor or a new mattress or something.
Cancer (6/21 – 7/22): Take a moment out of each day to look around you and appreciate what you have. It will make up for all the moments you spend looking around other people and coveting what…

As we see the sun moving thru the beginnings of another mutable sign, we are still dealing with an expansive giant stumbling backwards thru a sign that restricts it and redirects all of that robustness. Jupiter loves to go wild and big and bet the house. It works thru a mode of Faith that is rooted in the unknown and knows it will eventually reach. In the sign of Virgo, it already had to uncomfortably readjust to being focused inward. To looking at the smaller details and piecing together what we already know.
Now that the king of the Gods is moving backwards, we are having to turn even more inwards to settle into that faith. We have this idea that faith automatically brings peace but that is not the case. Jupiter starts the journey to find it. With this particular retrograde planet, looking and plumbing our own depths can…

Your insatiable curiosity knows no bounds, but it’s important to you that you convert your clever ideas so that they add value to your life as well as the lives of others. The need to know vitalizes you to search for “real world” and material demonstrations of your immense adaptability.
While you require a solid and practical structure from which to operate, it most likely won’t dull your inclination to experiment with all of the diversity life has to offer. Your multi-faceted worldview along with a steady persistence can unfold as an uncanny ability to create wealth via the acuity of your mind.
Even if you’re not certain of where your thoughts or words may take you, you’re not one to give up once you decide to follow an idea trail.
To successfully navigate this sun/moon blend, understand your need to enjoy life through BOTH the intellect AND the senses…

(Excerpt from the upcoming “Book of Sagittarius”)
The practical application of knowledge and the efficient use of your philosophical understanding are two areas of irrefutable importance in your life. One of the largest questions for you becomes: “How can I make the best of what I have?”
When releasing your arrows of thought into the universe, having a precise direction or location is something that has the potential to benefit you greatly.
While the desire to see the big picture fuels your lifeblood, there is also a need to pick things apart and get down to the minutiae. Always asking what life is all about in the larger sense, while simultaneously figuring out how to refine its processes, and combining your insights and offering them as service to humanity.
To know that you’re making a difference strikes a major chord in your psyche. You’re rewarded by…
