you may have picked up on the fact that i am living my life as a testament to, and continuation of, the work of science fiction writer octavia butler. i love her. i see emergent strategy throughout her work in ways that make me see the way change happens in the current world more clearly.

for some time now i have been developing a project with walidah imarisha called Octavia’s Brood: science Fiction from Social Justice Movements. this project is our secret heart made public – we believe it is our right and responsibility to write ourselves into the future.

now we are asking y’all to fund this project with us – we are self-publishing!! we have an amazing incredible mindblowing collection of original stories from social justice movements – stories that are important to read at this time.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Indian activist Gandhi led many peaceful rebellions against oppressive governments, first in South Africa and later in British-controlled India. At first he called his strategy "passive resistance," but later disavowed that term because it had negative implications. He ultimately chose the Sanskrit word satyagraha, meaning "love force" or "truth force." "Truth ('satya') implies love," he said, "and firmness ('agraha') is a synonym for force. 'Satyagraha' is thus the force which is born of truth and love." According to my reading of the astrological omens, Virgo, satyagraha should be your word of power in the coming weeks. Your uprising against the forces of darkness has got to do more than say "no." A fierce, primal yes should be at the heart of your crusade.
