President Obama, the plutocrats, and an Rx for stress

A plutocracy is “government by the wealthy”, a plutocrat is a member of the ruling class, and as Pluto went retrograde April 9th, there was a major hissy fit between Obama and representatives of the wealthy status quo: the latter bared their fangs, dug in their heels, and signaled to the rest of us that they weren’t going down easy. When retrograde, it’s more likely to bring up things from the past, or make people attempt to return to an old way of doing things. The world is already on guard to expect the worst from those attempting to stay in power.

How are we affected individually by Pluto retrograde, April 9th-September 17th?  Individually, we can expect strong feelings to surface, and to struggle with our own resistance, but on any level, eruptions and disruptions are within the context of transformation, because Pluto represents the urge to transform.

Pluto is in Capricorn, and shakes up our institutions and personal constructs. There’s chaos and pain, followed by a journey into the unknown, and through this character-building process, evolution takes place, and the structures of our lives and societies are reformed.

Relevant to the austerity measures put in place April 8th, is a prediction for America I left out of my January newsletter, because I didn’t understand it, plus it had an awful ring to it. (Feeling guilty for the omission,  I posted an article about it January 13th called:  Divination Chronicles: 2011 prediction decoded?“)  I felt like it were the voices of cities and states talking in answer to the question, “How is the U.S.A. in 2011?”:
Well, in the U.S. we are fine, but freak things happen that worry us.

We don’t get the intended benefit of austerity. We only have ourselves to rely on. We are desperate for favors.”

It alludes to some dark swerve the country takes that leaves people stranded, the probable fate of the disenfranchised with these cuts. People are going to react!

My fantasy is that President Obama is going to continue to surprise, however, and seriously stick it to the rich and get more money for Americans. Although it that happened it could be a mighty mitigating circumstance,  astrology says it will be a contentious Summer in which people feel deceived.

How do we stay cool, calm, and collected? We have to have a nice place to go within our own heads. We have control over what we entertain in there. Here are some suggestions for creating  a peaceful state within:

“First,  do some nice things for yourself.  How about turning off the phones and taking a bath? Breathing from your stomach, relaxed in warm water, is a good place to release energy, and then be open to a more satisfying plan for yourself. Also, a new ability to let go of the past can arise now in this naturally transformational time. Ask within yourself for whatever needs to happen, ask for whatever you can know that helps bring you inner peace. You can gain a sudden insight or knowing that way; perhaps you will suddenly forgive yourself for something, or come to a new self-understanding and acceptance.”

Another peace-promoting tip
: whether we are doing bad things or good things, we are trying very hard in the coming months. So much is going on, we can be easily distracted. If that becomes a problem, stop the stimulation! Stop taking in what’s going on that doesn’t pertain to you and your goals, and be about your own transformation so the winds pick up around your intentions, and not your fears.

Elissa’s Spring 2011 client newsletter, update on Neptune in Pisces

I just posted the Spring newsletter–half of it was up on the 23rd, here it is all together on my website,

I notice I don’t always post the monthly newsletters here on the blog (February is missing!) –they’re always on my site on the newsletter page.


Harry Shearer’s Big Uneasy agitates Santa Fe

Multi-talented voice of  “The Simpsons”  characters Harry Shearer is in Santa Fe tonight with his New Orleans documentary, “The Big Uneasy”.  It is the story of two private investigations into Katrina by experts and scientists, and what happened to the participants for uncovering ugly truths. Although the media told us different, it was no monster storm that overpowered the levys and flooded the city , but a perversely negligent government agency with an unbelievably bad work ethic that dealt the  blow. The Army Corps of Engineers knew all along how inadequate their systems were, and routinely denied and railroaded anyone who pointed it out. The horrifying point is that Katrina wasn’t the worst natural disaster to hit an American city, it was the worst government-agency made one.
The Army Corps of Engineers is again doing the wrong thing, choosing the option for New Orleans in rebuilding that least protects the city. The Big Uneasy is an infuriating documentary to watch, but that’s what it takes to get someone to write to the President and ask him to axe the rotten to the Army Corps of Engineers. A new civic projects agency with all new people and the agenda to solve problems–not cause them– should be what Obama promises the country for his second term. Go see The Big Uneasy and get riled up! Harry Shearer is moving on to another city after tonight, but it will be out on Netflix and dvd.

New food options at Ojo Caliente

Occasionally, I arrive at the Hot Springs at Ojo Caliente when their delicious restaurant is closed, and wish there were another place nearby to get something to eat. Now there is! The Red Mountain Cafe is open just north of the turn-off for Ojo Caliente, serving expresso, juices, smoothies and an interesting selection of international food. The coffee is excellent, and a rarity now in Santa Fe although it was my staple for years,  a side of toast with butter and jam for only a dollar.

Red Mountain Cafe is open Wednesday-Saturday, 10-8 pm, and Sunday, 10-6 pm. They have wifi, couches for lounging, and runny chocolate chip crispy-tender cookies, also for only a dollar.
The place is small, with abstract art on the wall, and hip magazines scattered across the coffee tables–I’d probably come in every morning if I lived there. Every community needs a cafe/restaurant to hang out, and owner David Biggs has achieved his dream of providing such a place for locals and visitors alike.

New to the area nine years ago from Louisville, Kentucky, David got a very interesting introduction to New Mexico culture through his first employer, a well-known Apache medicine man and artist:  “When I first arrived I worked for and learned from Master Potter and Chef Felipe Ortega (felipeortega.com), for whom I was the apprentice horno baker. “Hornos” are the traditional adobe mud ovens used to make the round loaves known chiefly as pueblo bread. I used to take the loaves steaming hot out of the ovens and put them right into my vehicle and deliver them to people up and down the valley, mainly old-timers who missed the bread their grandmothers used to make.”
You might go years without seeing the place if you always turn off at the Hot Springs…just a few yards further north on Highway 285 and you’ll be at the Red Mountain Cafe! 505-583-2184.

No Fooling: Forrest Fenn’s mind-blowing story of the old Southwest

It is purely coincidental that I’m posting this jaw-dropping tale on April 1st: although it’s a case to truth being stranger than fiction, it is still the strange and beautiful truth.
I don’t want to spoil it, so here’s the link straightaway to the blog of one of the best storytellers around of actual events. The truth is, Forrest Fenn happens to run into some unbelievable scenes. http://www.oldsantafetradingco.com/blog/

If you like this story, you will love “Thrill of the Chase”, Forrest’s autobiographical adventure stories–and if you are clever, it could be worth is to you to read:  you’ll find the clues to an actual buried treasure sprinkled throughout the book.

Forrest Fenn’s Southwest picture books have been entertaining my clients for quite awhile. People can look at the art in my living room while they wait for their appointment, or get lost in nostalgia for the beautiful America captured in Fenn’s large photograph book, “Teepee Smoke”. Both books are available at Collected Works on Galisteo and Water in downtown Santa Fe.
