Awaken your senses to the unusual. As we stand firmly in the light of the Sun in Taurus allow yourself to sink into the positive energy emitted by this stable and practical sign.

Upcoming New Mexico elections will test voter discontent, activism

E-mail Print PDF
With thousands of young people on the march, women activated by the “Me Too” Movement, and a new crop of candidates for state elections, this year’s elections could be an indication of our state’s appetite for reforming a system that my organization, Common Cause New Mexico, has often found wanting.

Common Cause is a non-partisan organization which does not endorse candidates, but like all ordinary citizens, we have a vested interest in a functioning democratic system which represents the voices of everyday people.

Instead of getting trapped in the minutiae of things you can’t change, think about all that you do have and what you can change. Madame G wishes you well. Spring-cleaning begins. Refresh! Renew!

Icarus, the boy who flew to high

E-mail Print PDF
Icarus is a famous story from Greek mythology.  Icarus was the son of Daedalus, an inventor commissioned by King Minos to build a labyrinth to trap the Minotaur, a half-man; half-bull creature that terrified the island of Crete.  However, Daedalus also knew that King Minos was up to something bad so he warned the king’s daughters of their father’s treachery and was swiftly imprisoned in the very labyrinth he designed to trap the dreaded Minotaur.

But Daedalus was a gifted inventor.

Daedalus designed powerful wings so that he and Icarus could fly away and thus escape the labyrinth and the Minotaur. Since the wings were held together by wax Daedalus warned his son not to fly too...
