Shh-h! Art Gallery Blog put to bed

It was after much pondering that I’ve decided to put my premiere Art Gallery Blog, Cosmic Persona Designs,  to bed this evening for the last time…at least as far as its current themes of erotic and archetypal art are concerned.

Perhaps the 3 1/2 year old blog will cry out to be morphed into an Art News Blog or a cartoonery or something of that nature. 

Until then, here’s the last Chiffonery Art portrait published only a few minutes ago – New Year’s Eve  - so if you’re of the 17+ persuasion, you may view ‘Calysta Calypso’ in her penciled splendor, if she has any you can spy:

MarketPlace turns to Astrology!

The ears of this reluctant astrologer perked up this evening to hear my public radio station broadcasting MarketPlace with  – gulp – a feature on – yeeks – Astrology.

More specifically they spoke of using Astrology to interpret what’s going on with the economy. Is all this difficulty in the stars?

Being sensitive to such things as media bias, I noticed a particular slant – as if the third astrologer quoted was somehow disagreeing with the others who, the narrator’s voice seemed suggestively to intone, were foil-hatted and slightly off-beam.

The counseling astrologer’s gravitas fared best of all. She gave Pluto in Capricorn information which some folk will be glad to be made aware of, if it’s been beyond their radar screens ‘ere this.

The last astrologer, a $20 per 15 minutes insta-astrologer who promises not to get into all that personality stuff with ya, but specializes in the What’s Coming Up mode of Astrology. This style can be of practical value (if not misguided) and it sounded to me as if the lady was well-versed.

Wonder why their interviews contained not the first  financial astrologer? Too…scientific? Or perhaps the ones with big clients know how to keep their mouths zipped!

Well, I thought you’d like to know of this odd radio occurrence – that the efficacy of using astrological cycles to determine, track, and understand cyclic markets of the financial persuasion (well-known of old as it is)  isn’t as far-fetched as most Wall Street practitioners would have us believe…and now PRI’s MarketPlace has given Astrology a polite, if slight, nod.

Thanks, MarketPlace. I enjoyed that. (I’ve listened to your program for years. How about blowing the lid off Financial Astrology’s handiness?) 

For as old J.P. Morgan once said, “Millionaires don’t use Astrology, billionaires do.”

And I must suppose he didn’t intend to leave out ‘trillionaires’ from his knowing pronouncement. Perhaps he simply hadn’t conceived of them yet.
