Aries (March 21-April 19)

Dear Aries, the intensity of Scorpio’s sun fires your blood and revives your flagging energy. Pursue your dreams with vigor. Let nothing get in your way, not even a friend who falls through and leaves you racing to the airport. You’ll run barefoot and make it in the nick of time. Don’t give...

GAIA EARTH WORSHIP or PANTHEISM: Neopaganistic veneration of natural phenomenon utilizing faith based junk science to the point of delusional superstitions. Gaians claim that the earth is a sentient super-being, an ancient goddess spirit, deserving of worship and reverence.

Joy in the freedom of self-sufficiency. 4. An acceptance of the natural order of things. The Tea Party and Libertarians are the social movements in contemporary America that can rightfully claim to be the ideological heirs. Sadly, by the late 1960s the hippie counterculture ideals became contaminated by big government socialists. The hippies lost their way, forgot their roots, embraced statism and a nanny state...

New Mexico has a long history of forging innovative solutions to a whole host of problems. Our knowhow and ingenuity have influenced everything from the creation of the personal computer to the exploration of the moon, Mars, and beyond. Surely we can come up with workable solutions for the myriad problems we face here at home.

One long-term problem—child poverty—has worsened and recently released Census numbers drop New Mexico to the very bottom in the nation, with 30 percent of our children living at or below the poverty level (just $24,250 for a family of four). Poverty is a complex issue, but one that we ignore at our peril. Brain science and biology show us that the damaging...
