This morning in Mandeville

Yesterday was a windy day. I heard creaks and cracks all day and woke up to this broken cypress tree in my backyard. You can't even see the tree debris now in my backyard for how green everything around the downed trees is. We also had a feeling of deja vu' as I had to get out my camping stove to make a cup of tea. Two trees were on power lines on my street, therefore we were without electricity most of the afternoon and into the evening. At least it was a cool day yesterday with that wind blowing. After Hurricane Katrina's demolition - we were without power and I swear it must have been about 125 degrees with relative humidity. It was too hot to move. Or speak. Words were at a minimum. So were thoughts, actually. If it hadn't been for kind outsiders coming to town - doling out ice, water, and MRE's, putting up our power lines again, and all the other things they came into to town to help with - we'd have melted into the landscape.

I am thoughtful and deliberate before speaking.

That is an affirmation that I was given by another astrologer about 5 years ago when I told him that Mercury squares my Midheaven. In the astro-world that means I may sometimes say the wrong thing at the wrong time and to the wrong people - very much like putting my foot in my mouth. I don't get that saying. At least with a foot in my mouth, the words wouldn't hit their mark.

The reason I will be repeating that to myself today is because of my debut as a radio personality on Internet radio tonight at 7pm central time. - Jupiter's Girl, of course.

Uranus rules the airwaves and he is hovering on my Mercury - which is the planet of communication in a person's chart. My Mercury is in Pisces - which seems a very appropriate placement for communicating with the masses. This station is currently #4 in it's category - net radio. They have plans to increase their visitor numbers by the end of the year, which means it can be accessed 24/7, in perpetuity.

That's where anxiety sets in. Words cannot be taken back. Uranus is spontaneous and anything could fly out of my mouth. If listeners hear crinkling paper noises, that's just me breathing into a bag.

Jupiter's Girl, the radio program

I am hosting my own 1-hour radio show on Wednesday's at 7 pm. I am still considering my format; interviews, chart readings, just straight mumbo-jumbo. I am signing a contract that will be for 13 weeks. I am pretty sure I have enough stuff to fill the airwaves with. I am psyched up about the opportunity. You understand why I haven't written?

Good Friday to you.
