Biography of Orchid Cross, the delicate and touchy, mundane astrological researcher, author of Mundane Day-By-Day Fly-By-Nights, who shines a humorous light on mundane aspects in astrology, charting the course of nations, other entities and events, with a deft comic touch. She’s received a lot of attention for this personal lucubration, especially as to the chapter in her book titled "Loosening The Asteroid Belt."

Orchid’s rustic cousin is Orris Root, of the fragrances in toothpaste family of the same name. Orchid invested in Orris’ start up company, Brushing through the Stars.

Another cousin, Venus Fly-Paper, of the fragrant stationery company, reneged on publishing Orchid’s book, arguing, quite rightly, that one does not expect fragrance from the mundane. Venus had always questioned Orchid’s true commitment to principles of the printed word, or anything else, once Orchid dedicated herself to a life of mundanity.

Orchid, herself, in one of her epiphanies (I think it came on the first day of Christmas) began to advocate on behalf of materialism. Once Orchid owned something, it was hers, she claimed, notwithstanding her assertions on behalf of higher thinking.

Sideswiped

Submitted: October 26, 2016

Though in western astrology, fixed stars and other supposed minor points have not until recently been studied for their effects with much interest, there are those who do come across deeper meanings related to certain degrees related to certain objects in the sky.

Does The Pet In Your Home Have A House?

Submitted: March 06, 2017

The "loss" of a companion of another species, "pet" if you wish, or "companion," may be experienced as the death of any living person significant to you - no difference. If you are its responsible family giver, and the loss is a mystery, then the loss/death feels like a murder has taken place, without information, body or closure. Sometimes all they animal care systems in the world, do not work. Something human conscientiousness needs to work on. Read Chapter

Enter Dr. No

Submitted: April 11, 2017

Orchid thinks media commentators do not make good predictors and the way they reveal that shows they do not readily understand the moment and events they comment upon. They project old scripts with recognizable actors on the global stage when the dynamics have changed. Current dynamics are de-structive, not con-structive. The persons setting the table currently know what they are trying to construct, but how it will play out is not yet known. Those with the best chance of knowing are those who have developed their intuition, by looking through things.

Whose Gonna Build A Wall?

Submitted: June 24, 2017

Sometimes one feels as if one is in a void and nothing is happening. Where is one's Saturn and is it conjuncting a critical degree in your chart? This article discusses, briefly, with humor, how Saturn can, not only, lay down or superimpose a new patent, or boundary as it transits any degree in one's horoscope, but how it can act as a barrier, or a negator, toward any powerful energy or impression coming at it at whatever degree it may be, and toward any planet with which it is in conjunction.
