March 6, 2017

I have been thinking very hard about whether I should talk about the NHA situation.  My Dad [Rex T. Kontz] used to say “Richard you need to understand:  in Tribal government and politics the people with power can’t stand the truth, the truth hurts too much”.   He also said: “you can’t expect...

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Growing pains are painful. But, this too shall pass. In this life, you sometimes outgrow friendships. This doesn’t demean what you had. You may continue to love them even, if they’re no longer in your life. Remember, nothing is permanent. They may yet return—any maybe they won’t. Either way, it’s...

Prepare for war, figuratively. The First Quarter Moon emerges again on March 3 and tensions rise. It’s always better to prepare than to expect a peaceful surrender. The Sun is in Pisces and this may mean peace is near. But, some causes are worth fighting for. Madame G suggests you learn the difference between wasted time and a meaningful existence. Seek and ye shall find!

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)
