September Astrology - Insights From Stellar Influences

Hi Everyone: It has been a fast paced summer for me. I have done the a lot of shows and the Oregon State Fair topped it off with a grueling time - thirteen and fourteen hour days for eleven straight days! I made it, and lots more people have seen GreeHee, the deep thinking dragon.
Well I am back. Since I do not have the time to update AstrologyandMore.com right now (we are going to fully revamp the site in the next few months) I will be posting my monthly astrology column right here. Enjoy.

Best to everyone, Michele
