The Infinite Kaleidoscope 25 "It's My Birthday"

Today’s show is a birthday party of sorts, to me, my birthday is Friday, so why not? Friday is also a New Moon in Cancer, which marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle. Is there anything you’ve been wanting to try?

One of my favorite astrologers Chani Nicholas says, “You are allowed to begin again. As often as is necessary and as much as you need. You’re allowed to press that refresh button on your life.”

Today you will hear some of my favorite songs, old and new, music that tickles my fancy, excites these ear drums and just makes me happy. Welcome to my birthday party.

Happy Birthday, from The Cats
