The fact that the federal minimum wage has stagnated at $7.25/hour since 2009 is atrocious.

But in reality, it's actually far worse than that.

The federal minimum wage is worth 28% less today than it was worth in 2009.

It’s worth 41% less than in 1968.

An absolute disgrace.

Evergreen Granny Weatherwax wisdom:

“Sin, young man, is when you treat people like things. Including yourself. That's what sin is."

"It's a lot more complicated than that—"

"No. It ain't. When people say things are a lot more complicated than that, they means they're getting worried that they won't like the truth. People as things, that's where it starts."

"Oh, I'm sure there are worse crimes—"

"But they starts with thinking about people as things..."

FTX's CEO is testifying before Congress today about the company's collapse, a day after its disgraced founder Sam Bankman-Fried was arrested in the Bahamas for securities fraud.

A word to the wise: Crypto is a giant Ponzi scheme.

Part of the scam is to define basic bedrock standards of decency as "left" & then, lo, you find "left bias" everywhere you look.

But that's not bias, fellas. That's just people trying to live in a society together.

FULL MOON IN GEMINI
The Full Moon will be exact (100% Full and in exact opposition to the sun) at 8:06 pm PST on December 7. (11:06 pm EST)
Moon Conjunct Mars

Lunar Update: Moon in Gemini
The Waxing Gibbous Moon enters the sign of Gemini on Dec 6 at 12:49 pm PST (3:49 pm EST) The Full moon will begin the evening of Jan 6, but it will be 100% Full on Dec 7 at 8:06 pm PST (11:06 pm EST)

Gemini is propelled by curiosity - a desire to find new information or ideas that can be applied to our daily life. Gemini, by nature is a lesson in flexibility - of never clinging to one idea for so long that one becomes rigid or stuck. Gemini resists becoming too set in a pattern because it appreciates that learning occurs through variety.

First QUARTER MOON in Pisces
The moon is in a Square aspect with the sun. Squares are challenging aspects, so you may experience doubts surrounding your new moon goals, or feel some kind of push-back to your growth as the moon squares the sun.

This moon is presenting a challenge between two Mutable Signs: The Pisces and Sagittarius. Both signs are Ruled by Jupiter so we see a challenge within the Duality of Jupiter: The Receptive Watery Jupiter of Pisces, or the Projective Fiery Jupiter of Sagittarius. - we are finding a need to compromise between the expansiveness through Fire (Passion) or expansiveness through Water (Intuition).

Lunar Update: Moon in Pisces
The First Quarter Moon enters the sign of Pisces on November 29 at 4:15 pm PST (7:15 pm EST) The Half-Moon will come into a Square aspect with the sun, exact at 6:35 am PST on November 30
Pisces is the Mutable Water sign ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter is also in Pisces - you should be able to see bright Jupiter close to the half-moon in the night sky after sunset!

The Pisces Moon can be a time of deep emotion, creative release, spirituality, and a time of great imagination and flight into fantasy. Stay mindful so that you can honor your emotions and explore fantasy or imagination without getting swept away in the strong tides.

(Part 4)
The up-side of ♊️ Mars in trine with ♒️ Saturn:
Strength and perseverance to follow through on your goals. An increased ability to make rational and logical choices. A focus on efficiency and stability - great time for problem solving to find ways to make your work or communication more efficient and effective. Motivation to build some stabilizing structure related to whatever you are passionate about right now; a routine or schedule, or a support team, etc. Inspired ideas about improving life for yourself or your friends / community.
