KATY PERRY HAS IT ALL

object width=”640″ height=”385″>

Don’t you just get sick of someone who has it all going on? Katy Perry with her progressed Venus sitting right on her natal Jupiter is the “It Girl.” All is right in her world. Besides all the goodies that Jupiter brings, she’s got that Venus (love) thing, too. I want to be Katy Perry.

Her Sun is in the sign of Scorpio along with her Moon, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto. Kind of Scorpio I would say. And a 10th House/Career Sun, Mercury, Pluto. Things are currently running quite smoothly. And will continue for some time. Her negative aspects happening during Jupiter so, oh, well.

HAPPY NEW YEAR from THE PSYCHIC BUBBBLE

ARIES: With Jupiter & Uranus in your sign this year, there is a surprise waiting for you which brings great happiness in the form of money or something you value. You won’t see it coming.

TAURUS: With Neptune moving out of Aquarius this year, you will feel a great weight lifted. Your creativity soars in areas you never dreamed were compatible with you.

GEMINI: Your year is two-fold, just like you! You will find money and all things Internet much more available, but you also will find someone is withholding information you need.

CANCER: This year will find you being challenged. But in your thoughtful and deliberate way, you will surmount any problems by letting the universe teach you about money and the value of friendship.

LEO: Of all the signs, your path is clear of obstacles. There also help from the universe. So it’s up to you to decide the path you want to take. You ability to suceed is tremendous.

VIRGO: Where restrictions found you last year, you will find the green light this year. Progress will be made in moving forward to translate the mundane into the magnificent. You will not be the servant but the served this year.

LIBRA: Saturn, the teacher, is in your sign this year. Some of you will feel restricted, but the more enlightened will notice that once the lesson is learned, the reward is great and can transform you into the greater you.

SCORPIO: That part of you that people often don’t see, the ability to imagine and make it happen will come through in 2011 when Neptune moves into the sign of Pisces. You’ve been waiting for this, and now it’s here.

SAGITTARIUS: Always optimistic, you will get some of the same benefit as Aries when Jupiter and Uranus change to those signs. Moving forward will be easy on every level. But do watch for an unanticipated betrayal.

CAPRICORN: With Pluto in your sign, you will get to know the ups and downs of your life very clearly. And even if some of the time is spent sorting it all out, you will grow greatly in your ability to know what you want and how to get it.

AQUARIUS: Three of the five outer planets are in air signs like you so you will be thinking a lot about the future — where you live anyway. Always the one to be there before anyone else, you will stumble on a secret and put it to use.

PISCES: With Neptune moving into its ruler, Pisces, and where it operates at the optimum, you will see some of those dreams you have dreamed become reality. Just pick which one and focus.

GEORGE G. BELCHER

TPB: What kind of education you do have in the field of art?
GDB: I began drawing and messing around with art when I was very young, since I can remember really. I was fortunate to learn some basic skills in high school and then I went to University of Arizona. I originally went as an astronomy major, but I quickly switched to art. I have always felt that art is something I must do, It is also seems the most natural way of thinking for me, and it provides an infinite opportunity to really explore and analyze the world. For me, it is a scientific/philosophical exploration of living and experiencing the world. I ask questions.
TPB: What gave you your design aesthetic?
GDB: I could not say for sure. I think that my “signs” and the colors I am engaging can be traced back to the beginning of color TV, early video games, and a 60′s or early 70′s media aesthetic, but that is not what I am thinking of in particular. It just feels appropriate, it feels necessary to capture and direct a space. I also do not think of myself as working in any specific aesthetic mode, I just do what is necessary for my thinking and purpose.
TPB: Do you have a slogan/motto you live by?
GDB: I have a few I suppose. Know thyself. Produce and support quality. You are what you make yourself. Who you are surrounds you. Impossibility is meaningless.
TPB: What are your plans for the future? Where do you go from here?
GDB: I am applying to grad school this fall. I have always, since I was young, wanted to go back to Rhode Island. There is a great art school there, RISD, so I have been very drawn to it; however, I am open and trust the that the best choice will be made. I am applying to 6 or 7 schools. Further down the line, I want to produce art that questions and betters society and culture, that progresses openness and understanding within our world. I want to uplift spirits and inspire questions of everything that is around us; to reveal and empower. I also want to teach, write, do film, fashion, so forth. For me these ventures are all just connected and part of engaging the world.
TPB: What would be your next conquest if you could do anything?
GDB: Write a book, install work in random locations throughout the world, on the moon. Alter the education system to progress teaching creative and explorative (not a word but it should be) thinking amongst the youth. Preach positive world engagement, do on to others as one would do onto his or her self. Revive pride and quality in objects.
TPB: Does your art leave you time for a personal life?
GDB: Most of the time yes, I have spent a lot of this summer reading and helping other people, it has been reflective and contemplative. The art and thinking never stops though. I always leave myself open to new ideas and explorations, and I try to write or work almost everyday. I have been better about managing my time and spending it with others.
TPB: Give me a little background on growing up, you
GDB: My father was in the military so we moved a lot. I have lived in Florida, California, Rhode Island, Virginia, south Dakota, Ohio, and now Arizona. In many ways, moving all the time forced me to be creative and to analyze my environments. Things were constantly changing so you get to know yourself very well, you turn inward and instead of viewing yourself as part of your environment, you begin to feel as though you are looking from afar. You look at things on a larger scale, you see things more clearly because they are removed. I was always drawn to media and books. They were constants, didn’t change. Thinking and creating were things I could take any where.
TPB: Is there an artist who inspires you?
GDB: I have been talking to Oliver Mosset here in Tucson. He is an incredible Swiss painter who was involved in France during the mid and late 60′s, and then he came to the U.S. His paintings really question the validity and purpose of painting, and art in general. He looks around and he sees things with great clarity. Great person. I also really enjoy the work of Martin Creed, Jeff Koons, and Liam Gillick (among many others of course).
TPB: What is your philosophy on creativity?
GDB: For me it is like an energy or a drive. I use it all the time and with everything I do. I think about or look at something and try to mentally produce every possibility I can. I actively look for new ways of creating and producing work or ideas. It is an infinite door in my head I feel like. I just have to focus or direct my thoughts and ideas start to come to me. I think creativity is essential if not the most important human force, it is active mental to physical evolution.
TPB: Do you think the type of parents you have were part of who you are today?
GDB: Undoubtedly they have been, but neither are engaged in art. I was lucky to have time to explore, and to be taught discipline.

YOU COUNT & SO DOES YOUR VOTE

This video was made in 1948. Watch it if you have any doubts about voting — Tuesday, November 2. In most states, if you are disabled, you can vote curbside in your car. They will come out to you. There are people who will pick you up — call your party Democrat or Republican. You can also get paid around $100 if you help at your precinct, and it’s not too late to call. They will still need help tomorrow. In California, the precinct inspector can hire you right there in person at your polling place if he/she needs more help. No excuses. You have no business complaining if you don’t vote.

YOUR TAX DOLLARS PRODUCE LIGHT SHOW

The most famous of all comets, Comet Halley is noted for producing spectacular displays when it passes near Earth on its 76-year trip around the sun. However, you don’t have to wait until 2061 to see a piece of the comet — you can do it this very week!

Halley’s Comet leaves bits of itself behind — in the form of small conglomerates of dust and ice called meteoroids — as it moves in its orbit, which the Earth approaches in early May and mid-October. When it does, it collides with these bits of ice and dust, producing a meteor shower as the particles ablate — or burn up — many miles above our heads. The May shower is called the Eta Aquarids, as the meteors appear to come from the constellation Aquarius. The October shower has meteors that appear to come from the well-known constellation of Orion the Hunter, hence the name: Orionids.

Orionids move very fast, at a speed of 147,300 miles per hour. At such an enormous speed, the meteors don’t last long, burning up very high in the atmosphere. Last year, the NASA allsky cameras at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., and in Chickamauga, Ga., recorded 43 definite Orionid meteors. Most of these appeared at an altitude of 68 miles and completely burned up by the time they were 60 miles above the ground, seen in the graph at right.

Even though the peak isn’t until October 21, the shower is going on now. The NASA camera systems saw their first Orionid on Oct. 15. Unfortunately, the light from the nearly full moon will wash out the fainter meteors, so expect to see fewer than the 30-per-hour rate you might see under completely dark skies.

The good news is that watching Orionids is easy. Go out into a clear, dark sky after 11 p.m. at night — your local time — and lie on a sleeping bag or lawn chair. Look straight up. After a few minutes, your eyes will become dark-adapted, you’ll start to see meteors. Any of these that appear to come from Orion will be an Orionid, and therefore represent a piece of Halley’s Comet doing its death dive into our atmosphere.

Most folks would consider seeing one or two of these a fair exchange for an hour or so of time.

Thanks to your tax dollars at nasa.gov. The video is from 2009.

MAD MEL’S GIRLFRIEND OKSANA

I don’t like her, Oksana Grigorieva, girlfriend, paramour, of Mel Gibson, who is currently bringing down Hollywood royalty. And there’s a reason. But is she mean or stupid?

Oksana is a Pisces, a sign known for it’s compassion. They’re dreamy and nostalgic, and the women are very feminine. Being ruled by Neptune, Pisces can see things through their own rose-colored glasses. As the highest sign in the zodiac, they’re wise. But wise in a way that most of us can’t comprehend, since it always has an element of a delicate balancing act with the facts.

She also has her moon in the charming, but more often than not, phony sign of Libra. Libra Moon people always say nice things even if they don’t mean them. But they won’t talk about you behind your back. Whatever they say, they stick with.

With her Venus in Pisces where it is exalted, she loves with all her heart. But as her album, BEAUTIFUL HEARTACHE, alludes to — it’s better for the people they love than it is for themselves.

So what’s not to like? When Mercury is the focal planet (two planets oppose and the focal planet squares both), you get cold, icy cold. It’s a detachment, a feeling you can’t get in. She evaluates things dispassionately and critically. The focal planet because of it’s extreme negativity can supersede good qualities. They’re in there, but they are not as obvious. When you see her, you see the calculated, analytical, perhaps, even defensive behavior. This apex planet drives one to learn a skill. Oksana is a songwriter and singer. She studied at The Royal Academy of Music. She’s educated and talented. Why don’t we know that?

Currently, Oksana has two inconjuncts — things that need to be balanced. One is her progressed Mercury (communications) to her Neptune. And that’s her other focal planet. So because she is a Pisces, she doesn’t see things clearly, because Neptune is a focal planet, she doesn’t see things clearly, and because PMercury is inconjunct Neptune, she doesn’t see things clearly. And progressed Mars is inconjunct her natal Moon, sometime around this time, because I don’t have her time of birth. Mars is violence and the Moon is feelings which vaguely translates into her pushing Mel’s buttons without knowing how to handle the ensuing publicity. Did she release the tapes of Mel’s rants? Someone probably talked her into doing it. She didn’t think it through.

I’m going with stupid. Coming up for her is progressed Venus (love) opposition progressed Jupiter (money). If she has a lawyer, she needs to listen to him, because her situation isn’t getting any better.

BILLIONAIRE FACEBOOK OWNER

Mark Zuckerberg is worth $7 billion dollars, and he’s twenty-six years old. There has to be something unusual in his astrology. And there is — very, very unusual. Stay with me here. Progressions move very slowly because they are based on a day-for-a-year. For every year you are old, your chart moves forward one day. The slowest planet is Pluto. For Pluto to ever move out-of-sign (out of your natal sign), you would have to have a very high degree or low degree Pluto to begin with. Mark’s is 0 Scorpio 06 Rx. So it’s in the lowest degree it can be in (including minutes) and it moved lower because it is retrograde. That caused it to move into the sign of Libra. Because it is no longer in it’s natal sign, Pluto can now make aspects.

Mark’s natal Mercury is 29 Aries 25 (the first number is the degrees and the second is the minutes). Therefore when Mark’s Pluto moved into Libra at 29 degrees (there is no 30 degrees), it opposed his Mercury (communication). On February 4, 2002, when Facebook was launched, Mark’s progressed Moon was 29 Cancer 28. The progressed Moon squared both his Mercury and his progressed Pluto. This is called a T-square (two planets oppose, 180 degrees, and one squares, 90 degrees, both).

This is a rare astrological event. And even more interesting, it is a negative event.

How do you explain Mark’s seemingly amazing fortune? A couple of things come to mind. Astrologically, I say he did steal something (a lawsuit is pending). He is also a Taurus, the sign that rules the 2nd House of Money. And he is Jewish, a culture that puts a lot of emphasis on money as self-worth. What bothers me is that, if this is a negative event, what will this windfall of money bring to Mark’s life? Because it has an excellent chance of not being happiness. This is crazy money for someone so young. Where do you go from here?

A stable, happy person would use this gift to benefit others. Mark has donated $100 million to the Newark school system, but that appears to be in response to a movie coming out, THE SOCIAL NETWORK. It’s 2010 and it just occurred to him to be generous? That’s six years after the birth of Facebook. Also back to that thing where he may have stolen some or part of the idea for Facebook. All I can say is karma is a bitch. On paper we would all like to be Mark, but let’s see where this all takes him.

Is Mark extraordinary? In astrology, he definitely is. He got progressed Pluto opposing Mercury at the age of five, and he will have it for the rest of his life as his Sun, Mercury and Venus move forward to replace the Moon in the T-Square. There will be those Jupiter periods when he is protected, but overall, I wouldn’t want to have a negative progression almost my entire life. Not even for $7 billion. Seriously. I’ve been doing this too long. It isn’t worth it. Money really can’t buy you happiness.
