Finding Balance With Mercury in Retrograde

20131029-220832.jpg
Based on my prior posts about psychics and tarot readings it should come as no surprise that I believe in astrological calendars and their meanings to some degree. For most things (maybe even all things), I believe a bit of both science and art creates a well-balanced diet that doesn’t over or under serve what each side has to offer.

Halloween Costume Trends: What To Wear Together
