Car Crash Dummy
April 6, 2010
What to do with my Neptune transit?  It will go on till February 2011 and runs the gamut from magical experiences to loss and disappointment.

If I was my own client I would be advising something creative, so off to The National Academy School of Fine Arts for a sculpture course.  We have a sitting model and a lump of clay.  It’s great to be at school and the smell of plaster dust is quite intoxicating (another Neptunian dimension).  The other students comprise one young guy who turns out surreal heads with oversize lips – Angelina Jolie eat your heart out.  These are big smackers.  And a couple of older women who claim no previous experience but obviously worked with Michelangelo in a previous life.  The course director looks like something left over from Woodstock.

First week I’ve massaged that head for 6 hours and feel I’ve really got stuck in.  Second week I arrive – my head is nowhere to be seen.  Woodstock Man helps me search and uncovers one.  ‘This is yours’ he says.

I’m nearly convinced but mine had a long neck, like E.T.  ‘Lucky I didn’t start working on someone else’s sculpture’ says me.

Woodstock Man’s eyes go misty.  ‘We used to swap around a lot in the 60′s’.  Somehow I didn’t think he was talking sculpture!

Anyway, suddenly in comes Roadie (his side-kick) who announces that there had been a terrible accident!  My head has fallen over (such a big head you see!)  Roadie uncovers the body of Car Crash Dummy, my erstwhile beautiful woman who is now mortally injured, lop-sided and destined for the scrap heap.  But I spend another 6 hours repairing her.

Such is Neptune.  Don’t get attached.  Just let go…

Crazy Easter
April 4, 2010
Crazy Easter Parade on 5th Avenue.  This is not the usual floats and fandango viewed from behind someone’s back of the head, but a walk, mix and mingle affair.Everyone is strolling around in incredible hats aka Easter bonnets.  I’ve seen the sushi hat, the organic egg, the Mad Hatter, free range flowers.  It’s all here.  Including Michael Jackson who was parading outside Radio City Hall with all the other showgirls with deep voices.

Maybe it’s just the Venus and Mars vibe – it’s all pushing and pulling, see and be seen, cross-dressing, cross people and some very hot cross buns.

Surrendered Wife!
April 2, 2010
I am here on a surrendered wife visa!

Definitely no green card for me.  It feels strange.  Curiously in New York you can hardly buy a latte without being asked for ID.  Right now I have no US bank account, no social security number – I am effectively a non-person. 

Which is interesting considering I’m in that Neptunian realm as it squares up to my Mercury and it’s all about being very Pisces – just coasting along, ego-less, form-less etc. 

It works fine.  Unless you want something like entry to view a school, or sinus medicine from the pharmacy – then you’d better become real and manifested with photo-I.D to prove it, pronto. 

Still there are some good places here… 

Sag Harbour, for instance, which I reckon is for all those who haven’t been lifted (a rarity in New York).  Or you can enjoy the language – it always makes me laugh when I walk down the street and stand outside the laundry where there’s a big sign saying ‘Drop your pants here’.  I can hardly resist doing so! 

This sign made me laugh out loud

New York State of Mind
April 1, 2010
I’m in a New York state of mind…You have to be when you get out of the front door and the vibe hits you immediately, honking yellow cabs, blossom flying in the wind, skittering dogs, Upper Eastside Madams.

I'm in a New York State of Mind

I leg it up to the Guggenheim and am transfixed by a couple seemingly making out in the downstairs hall.  A big crowd is gathered around and I wonder if they are going to get arrested.  But no.  This is an exhibit.  For exhibitionists.

Intense tantric ballet, they gaze so intently at each other, rolling and entwining and disentangling and attaching again.  They can be viewed as you walk up round and round the cylinders that make The Gugg – and they are still at it when I walk down 7 floors, one and a half hours and one cup of Earl Grey tea later.

Is this the Aries horoscope for today or an April Fool?
