The New Moon in Libra rose on Monday October 8th, and this astrologer was busy eating turkey. If you look up, the Moon is a satisfying white slice, waxing towards a Full Moon in Taurus later this month.

When the New Moon passes through the sign, those principals apply to your inner world, your ability to care for others, and your willingness to share your emotions.
His brain is “a puddle with a reflection of a TV on the surface.” A direct result of, lately, “too much TV-series binge-watching”, Angus Ferguson tells me. He’s been painting all day, and curbing the anxiety he feels when he’s not. He’s listening to Wichita Lineman by Glen Campbell and feeling nostalgic.

The Museum of Forgotten Triumphs is both sharply specific to the Bosnian experience and universal in its themes, making it impressively versatile and a necessary film to watch. Something in the film will speak to you.
