Jeff Buckley: 17 Years Gone

May 29th, 2014 by Voxx

Copyright Voxx.Org 2000

Today marks the 17 year Anniversary of the untimely death of Jeff Buckley. On May 29th, 1997, Buckley dove into the Wolf River, a tributary of the Mississippi River, only to surface as a beautiful ghost.

At the time of his passing, I had only heard tales of his music and live performances from friends and clients. Oddly enough, time and again I went to record stores and wound up holding his CD in my hands, studying the covers — staring into his face. Still, each time I left the store without purchasing his music.

Once, after giving a Psychic Reading to Maynard James Keenan (the vocalist for the magickal music group Tool), he told me he was going to see Jeff play at the Troubador. I wanted to go, but for some reason, didn’t — much to my lasting regret.

Buckley Virgin: On June 4, 1997 I was at a KROQ concert with Nancy Berry (the former Vice-Chairman of Virgin Records) and several of her friends. A friend of Nancy’s, a singer named Christopher Shinn, offered to give me a ride to an after party at the Chateau Marmont, which I accepted.

On the drive back, Chris told me his favorite singer was Jeff Buckley. I felt at that point the Universe was definitely conspiring to get me to buy Buckley’s CD, and made a mental note to get it immediately, after Chris continued raving about it. In the car, Chris put on Jeff’s debut album, Grace, and played the track So Real. By the end of the song I was in tears, completely blown away by the sheer beauty of not only the music, but the power and sincerity of Jeff’s mighty, angelic voice. After the song was over, Chris said, “Yeah, it’s a real shame he’s gone.”

I couldn’t believe my ears. When I asked Chris what he meant, he explained that Jeff had mysteriously “disappeared”, and no one had seen him since he went swimming on the night of May 29th, (1997). I was devastated twice that night.

The next day I went out and bought a copy of Grace, and played nothing else (except for a little Satchel and Pigeonhed) for months. His music is that good.

Getting back to my story, 6 days after I first heard Jeff’s music, his lifeless body was found, floating on the banks of the Mississippi River, near Beale Street. The music world went into a period of mourning. Anybody who was familiar with his music was absolutely devastated by the news. The legend of Jeff Buckley was born.

There is much left to my story, but I’ll post the amazing details on my Magickal Forum as soon as I can.

For those of you who don’t know Jeff’s music, please visit Official Jeff Buckley Site for more about his life, and his music.

All I can say now is, Jeff — wherever you are, thank you for the music, the beauty that you shared with all of us, stuck down here without you.

Maya Angelou: Rest in Peace, Phenomenal Woman

May 29th, 2014 by Voxx

The great poet, Maya Angelou passed away today on the New Moon in Gemini.

She was an amazing person who lived a full life, and shared her wisdom with us for a great part of it.

I would like to share one of my favorite poems she wrote, along with a link to a recording of Maya reading it aloud. Click on the above link to read more of her work. Maya, you will be missed. ~V~

Phenomenal Woman (Video)

Phenomenal Woman
By Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size   
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,   
The stride of my step,   
The curl of my lips.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,   
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,   
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.   
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.   
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,   
And the flash of my teeth,   
The swing in my waist,   
And the joy in my feet.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered   
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,   
They say they still can’t see.   
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,   
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.   
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.   
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,   
The bend of my hair,   
the palm of my hand,   
The need for my care.   
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Birth of the Royal Baby Boy!

July 22nd, 2013 by Voxx

The Royal Baby is being born as I write this (at 2:09am PDT) — of course, the baby has such an amazing horoscope!

Astrology Update: The Royal Baby will have 7 planets in water signs! (If it is born a Moonchild, that is.)

Vision: At 9:06 am PDT, I had a vision of Duchess Kate, in a white tub, giving birth to her water baby! It seemed very real. Kate seems to be going strong, although the baby is tiring her. The baby seems larger than expected. No doubt, Princess Diana is there with her, in spirit, helping her along!

If the baby is born before 7:07 pm (GMT): The Royal Baby will be a Cancer/Moonchild, and will have the Moon at 29 Degrees of Capricorn — very powerful to be sure, as there will still be a Sun/Moon Opposition aspect. This alignment will make the baby tend to have darker hair, and look more like Kate. It will be a very intense baby. Also, if the baby is born before 7:07 pm (GMT), there will be a stronger tendency for the baby to be born a boy!

[Update: Indeed the baby was a boy!]

If the baby is born at/or after 7:07 pm (GMT): The Royal Baby will be a Leo, born right at the Full Moon in Aquarius! What an amazing configuration of stars. Truly blessed. (Of course, I was hoping for a Princess). This aspect will tend to have the baby look more like its father, Prince William.

Reincarnation of a King: I have a feeling that the Royal Baby is the reincarnation of a ruler from the Renaissance, and has come back to guide England into the Titanium Age. It would be wonderful if the baby should be a boy, and a reincarnation of Sir John Dee, the famous Astrologer from the royal court of Queen Elizabeth the First.

Congratulations to Prince William, and Duchess Kate!

[Note: I am the first Psychic Astrologer to write about these Astrological aspects of the Royal Baby -- still, God is in charge, and I can only share what I've picked up psychically.]

Names for a Prince: Alexander, Albert, William, Philip, Louis, Francis (and a special name added as well.)

Justice For Travis: It Is Over

May 21st, 2013 by Voxx

It is 6:00am, May 21st, 2013. I predict a Death Sentence for Jodi Arias. As I predicted months ago on my radio and television shows.

Anyone who has seen the photos of Travis in death, will be haunted forever. No one deserves what happened to him. May his tortured spirit rest in eternal peace.
