(Like Blogs, but different)                  
Monday's child is fair of face.
Tuesday's child is full of grace.
Wednesday's child is full of woe.
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving.
Saturday's child works hard for a living.
But, the child that is born on the Sabbath day
is bonny and blithe and good and gay.
Wednesday's child; that's me! Figures. Where did they come up with that stuff anyway? What makes a Moon child fair
of face? And, for heaven's sake, whoever would dream up the idea that a child of Mars is full of grace? Mars is a
warrior with a "me first" attitude and not full of anything, but himself!  I think the whole thing needs editing.  Here
Monday's child is full of face.
Tuesday's child could wreak the place.
Wednesday's child makes a wordy foe.
Thursday's child puts on a show.
Friday's child is sweet and laughing.
Saturday's child cannot help chafing.
But, the child that is born on the Sabbath day,
is merry and may or may not be gay.
It was my understanding that Monday is Moon day; Tuesday is Mars Day; Wednesday is Mercury day, Thursday is
Jupiter day; Friday is Venus day, Saturday is Saturn day, and Sunday is Sun day.

I think that, being a Wednesday child, I'm an addicted editor.  I rewrite everything; it's like taking one step forward
and two steps back.  You can't count on anything I say because tomorrow, for sure, it'll be edited.  They talk about
Obama and McCain doing flip flops in their campaign speeches; soooooooooooooooooooooo? Perfectly natural to
me; they're editing!  Right? Right!

Charting an Unknown Birth Time
When charting a person with an unknown birth time, some astrologers use a solar chart; set the natal Sun on the
Ascendant and read the chart.  Some do a Sunrise chart; setting the ascendant for Sunrise.  

I always erect the chart for Noon of the birthday.  That way the Moon can only be 7 degrees wrong at most.  The Moon
travels each day from about 11 to 14 degrees.  It makes sense to keep the Moon as close to accurate as possible. The
only way to do so, is to set the chart up for Noon which is the exact midpoint of the beginning of one day to the next.

I just love Henry's mandalas.  I can't wait to open my e-mail every day
to see what he has drawn.  He is such a marvelous teacher, mentor,
philosopher, psychologist, and man.  He is a professor at Atlantic
University (my alma mater) in Virginia Beach, VA.  He also hosts
wonderful retreats yearly and travels all over the country giving
lectures. You can read all about him here:

This particular mandala really hit me.  It is so whimsical and mystical  
that you can almost imagine it floating away in the sky like a shimmery
bubble. I call it the "fullmoonanytime" mandala and will use it during
some full moons.
