In the Spirit of Jupiter Conjunct Uranus
So, here we are with Jupiter and Uranus on top of each other. New beginning, new thoughts, you get the drill. And with a push by Gemini New Moon I wanted to share this email my friend sent me. For those who made it through the end of my New Moon article you may have seen it but I had to post it in smaller print (it was getting so long). But here in easy to read font is the email my friend sent regarding BP. Lots to think about and start doing.
Most of us (everyone I know, at least) are completely
devestated by the environmental destruction in the
gulf of Mexico ( and soon to spread elsewhere).
But while British Petroleum and Transocean are the
culprits, let's be honest, we are all responsible, we are
all at fault. And we know it.
We all use way, way, way too much fossil fuels in the
form of energy, plastics, chemicals and fertilizers, etc.
And while BP and Transocean have committed an
unspeakable crime on too many levels to even count
here -- we can all do something to help, because they
Let's take this awful moment - a truly awful moment -
and finally say - this is the moment, the moment in time,
when we all finally say it is time to truly begin to get
off of fossil fuels.
This won't be easy, and it won't be quick.
But it is time. There is nothing to recommend that we
stay on our path. Sure, fossil fuels have gotten us
around, lighted our lights, heated our homes. Not too
shabby. But we know it has to end.
Please, everyone: let's make something positive out of
this atrocity. Thank you & God Bless.
10 Easy Easy Ways to Save Energy
(This is a start - this is a beginning)
1. If you haven't already, please get off the water
bottle, unless you're in a situation where you have no
choice (if that's too much for you, at least stop buying
water from Europe & the South Pacific, buy local
2. Take a military shower once a week (if you don't
know what that is, it's: water on, water off, lather up,
rinse off). Maybe do it twice a week.
3. Eat vegetarian or even vegan a couple of times a
week. Eat as little red meat as you can.
4. Dim your computer screen - it doesn't need to be on
full bright for you to use it.
5. Dim your screen when you walk away from your
computer - just turn it all the way down.
6. Coast - roll to red lights most of the time, if you're
not running really late - avoid jack-rabbit starts.
7. Skip a meal once or twice a week.
8. Use gift bags instead of wrapping paper - they can
9. If you're a boss, let some of your most trusted,
hardest working employees work from home 1 day
a week. Most of them get just as much work done from
home as they do in the office, because there can be
10. Set up a clothes line in your backyard.
I lied, there are 12:
11. Bombard your politicians, on all levels, that we're
not going to take this anymore - they have to start
making changes. Oil doesn't make sense anymore.
12. Come up with more ideas.
This is the moment we have all been (reluctantly)
waiting for. There is no more time to waste.
