Naturally cuddlefish are the life of any party...and here's one suddenly appearing now:

And you can tell by his looks that Octopus vulgaris never misses a chance to party!

Coral Reefs Dying Off at an Alarming Rate: Climate Change 2017?

Here's a recent segment and interview from The Thom Hartmann Program concerning an alarming environmental catastrophe that's only getting worse:

Is This New? The Emerald Fish Investigate! by Jude Cowell

In real life, this drawing is hu-u-ge! Emerald Fish Investigate!; oil and watercolour pencil on black paper by yours truly Jude Cowell (c)1996--2020 and beyond; photo via a Samsung phone because the drawing won't fit a regular scanner bed at all even though images aren't as crisp as you and I would prefer. Yet I'm thinking a blurry phone snap creating an excerpt from my over sized drawings is about the only way that larger, long hidden illustrations will ever come out of their shells, yawning as they dare...

Wonderful You: You're in the Fish's Dream!

So if you may, consider this posting a tiny peep eye! to You from the emerald fishes who, admittedly, turn up quite often within my botanical fish portraits with their impossibly exotic backgrounds. Well, fish dream, too!

~:~

Perhaps it's mild synchronicity that today (Mar 2, 2017) such an investigation by the emerald fishes occurs at this moment here because in a related story about certain current events we discover that more research {is} needed into 'intrusive' seismic surveys: Western Australian fishing industry asserts. Or, perhaps the guilty parties should cease and desist causing harm to the environment making unnecessary their expensive studies (intended to delay action).

Those responsible should do what needs to be done or improve what needs improving. Like Obamacare. Improve it, don't kick millions of Americans to the curb without health insurance, you Washington blighters. Oops! Mea culpa! It's my indignation at in-breach-of-the-public-trust politicians who are nearly completely worthless as 'our' representatives. If Republicans and enabling Democrats proceed with their austerity measures, let's kick power elite freeloaders off taxpayer-funded health insurance programs for a year and see how they like it.

Astrological Neptune Erodes, Dissolves, and Veils

Intimidation, bribery, blackmail, pocket-lining, graft, fraud, insider trading, pay offs, favors, you name it. That's my former city of residence, the Virgoan-Scorpionic Washington DC. And though I miss the beauty of the place, to me its citywide Masonic architecture looks more and more mausoleum baby with each passing year while the Halls of Power grow dustier, draftier, and leakier by the Neptunian drop. Could the dripping sound We the People hear be pouring from our nation's 1776 Neptune in earthy Virgo?

The Green Slime Attacking the Atlantic Coast - video

July 6, 2016: here's Thom Hartmann reporting on Florida's stinky, guacamole-thick algae bloom now affecting the Florida coastline and involving the Everglades, residents made ill, and animals in the Florida ecosystem. The algae love it!

Predictably, this engineered problem spotlights (among other things) the Army Corp of Engineers, poor management, chemical run off, septic systems, and ineffective spending which have made this year's bloom much worse. Then there are the politicians determined to blame President Obama for the mess for their own political gain (they hope) for as they know, misdirected blame allows them to neglect reparation of the actual problems:

Isn't it a major improvement when the human animal finally catches up with the intelligence and integrity of the animal kingdom? Makes for a pleasant change!

FUKUSHIMA: What the Media & Governments are not telling YOU - Anonymous reports

These days freakishly huge sea creatures are turning up in various locations but don't worry, say government officials, Fukushima radiation isn't the problem at all!!!

~:~

In Astrology, planet Neptune (ancient god of the sea) describes a variety of concepts such as all liquids and gases, bodies of water including oceans, the sea creatures that inhabit the waters, and the toxins and chemicals that harm them. But astrological Neptune also inspires such realms as photography, film, acting, dancing, illusion, magic, and masks such as the one you see, above. Even anonymity peeks from veiling Neptune's bag of tricks.

So if you'd care for some lighter Neptunian content than radiated sea monsters, why not mosey over to my brand new blog Neptune's Silver Screen where horoscopes, film clips, and bios of Famous Film Stars are spotlighted--just be sure to BYOP (bring your own popcorn)!

The Growing Impact of Ocean Acidification on Marine Life

Sorry to report that there is bad news concerning the Growing Impact of Ocean Acidification on Marine Life Worldwide.

And with transiting Neptune now in its own sign of fishy, murky Pisces (and increasing paranoia within the Collective Unconscious and bringing increases of toxins, poisons,contamination, and infections in its watery wake), we have pineal gland calcification concerns to be addressed. Check out a previous post with an informative video on how to do just that--because our 3rd eye intuitive faculties need relief!
