Tarot and Astrology

Two weird dreams:

(1) I had a dream that someone tried to tell me it wasn't logical to believe in astrology. I explained that I had my own definition of logic, where something was logical if it started with a first principle then evolved into a construct that was consistent with those principles. Since astrology did this, then it was logical to believe in astrology.

(2) I also dreamed that I sat down to get a tarot reading. I had to pull 5 cards. The Fool was turned over. I wanted to pull it, but I thought it was just wishful thinking. I hallucinated the 2 of pentacles and mistook the Tower for the star. Death, the high priestess and 5 of pentacles were both there.

This is the first time in nine years where I haven't been about to start a new semester.

Writer's Block: Beam me up, Scotty

If you could be transported anywhere in the world, at any point in time, where and when would would you choose to live, and why?

Jena, between 1793-1795. I'd love to be there when all those great minds in German Idealism were doing their thing. Catching one of Fichte's lectures, or even just eavesdropping on some of the conversations between Hegel, Schelling and Hoelderlin would be amazing. I would also like to know what Hoelderlin and Novalis talked about when they met. Amazing.
