VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): As public schools decline and private schools become more expensive, increasing numbers of parents are homeschooling their children. I predict that an analogous phenomenon will arise among religious groups. Called the "homechurch" movement by Christians, "homesynagogue" by Jews, and "hometemple" by other traditions, it will consist of people creating altars and conducting worship sessions in their own abodes. Seekers pursuing this approach will eliminate the middlemen and serve as their own priests, priestesses, and rabbis. If you have even the slightest attraction to this meme, Virgo, launch your own version of it. It's time to crank up your spiritual intentions. The Divine Wow wants to talk.
I picked up a Korg rack tuner today, so my mind was already on Keanu's bass how much I love to watch him play. I try not to think about the fact that I don't know when I'll ever get to again. I know that I've been luckier than many to have had the chance to see him rock. These tracks are a real gift to all the fans.
By the way, he still has a bit of a presence at the official becky site, even though they've added the new members. It gives me hope that maybe, possibly once his schedule allows he'll be thumping the rock stage again.
IGN.com has more info on the Constantine DVD, including the release date of July 19. It looks like it's going to be a 2-disc set that will run about 30 bucks.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Of all the world's landlocked countries, only one maintains a navy: Bolivia. Until 1879, it had a seaport, but lost it in a war with Chile. Over a century later, it has thousands of sailors but only a single sea-worthy ship, which it keeps docked in Argentina a thousand miles away. Its quixotic fixity of purpose seems to be a symbolic declaration that it intends to someday once again have land bordering the ocean. I see a certain resemblance between Bolivia and you right now, Virgo. You also cling fiercely to a starry-eyed commitment that might appear unrealistic to casual observers. The difference is that your dream, as opposed to Bolivia's, is not entirely hopeless. You will receive a sign this week that reveals why.
