christmas trees are sad

To take a living tree and then let it die in your living room to celebrate a stolen Pagan festival is bad for the environment, sad for the tree and terrible energy for your house.

Yule Can’t Fool Me

Hark everybody! I know I speculated that Santa is a Sagittarius but I legit think something more sinister is going on. Here we have Capricorn season, a time when many people want to be temperate and goals-focussed. But no, a strange spectre haunts public spaces across many cities and towns. I’d say wraith but Santa Claus – an archetypal patriarch – is ‘designed’ to take up space. He is imposing, …

Hating Christmas Is Not A Personality Disorder

I hate Christmas. I thought people were supposed to adhere more to tradition with every passing year, but my grinching is intensifying. It is a Stolen Pagan Festival that has morphed into a synthetic symbol of hypocritical, tree destroying societal dissonance. Yesterday I was in a mall, and, as I have vowed since the last Mercury Retrograde to pay more attention to my intuition, I stopped to analyze the strange …

Free The Pine

Those of you who have been lurking around here a while will know that i tend to post an Xmas Grinch rant at around this time. I would say that it is a tradition but i am a Uranian.  So it’s, I don’t know, a download. Some of the frequent themes are forced frivolity, compulsive consumerism and the appropriation of a Pagan festival – Xmas being among many but with …

The Christmas Rebel Manifesto

Okay, i was going to say that I’m grinching Christmas, but that’s not accurate – i am the Christmas Rebel. Without a nanogram of hate in my heart for the Xmas Freaks who love this time of year, here is my Christmas Rebel manifesto.  * Due to it being a Stolen Pagan Festival (once was Saturnalia), Xmas is scheduled for the time of Capricorn. That is the most astrologically ludicrous time …
