First – our new (and last) Rabbit Year Winter Horoscope!
Run with this weirdly specific series of AI-generated & Ashia-tinkered instructions from an internet stranger and their minions that has nothing to do with you, your interests, or abilities!
(My horoscopes are the opposite of the Summer Accelerator – simple, short, and full of terrible advice.)
Second – sooooo many other things I need to share with you. But I don’t want to overload you! So I leave you with this –
Praxis means taking what we discuss with our kids, and then actually participating in changing the injustice we talk about.
But also it’s getting cold. And the sky is gloomy. Also the world is a toilet bowl full of microplastics and things keep getting terribler?
(We just had a really bad local election. Also: Genocide and a looming WWIII. I’m in a mood.)
Getting up and doing stuff is harder. What’s the point?
OKAY – HERE IS THE POINT:
Yes – the world sucks. It’s full of terrible, stinky, rude people. And the systems we live in are designed to exploit us, sap our energy, and crush us until we give up.
BUT! We don’t have to give up. That’s a choice. Most of us have the freedom to keep going.
And this world could be so wonderful if we keep it up.
So take a nap, vent and weep – do what you need to do. Care for yourself by raking leaves and watching Parks and Rec marathons and eating way too much avocado ice cream.
Take a breath – take lots of breaths – and then come back and join us. We’ll take turns, and we’ll stay at it.
Tell us what you’re carrying with you this week in the comments – what are you working on, and what does support look like for you while you tackle it?
YOU ARE DOING A DAMN FINE JOB!
