    “Horrible villain! Or I’ll spurn thine eyes
    Like balls before me: I’ll unhair thy head,
    Thou shalt be whipped with wire and stewed in brine,
    Smarting in ling’ring pickle.”

Shakespeare‘s Cleopatra to the messenger in Antony and Cleopatra [II.v.62-6]

Always appreciate the comic relief from Cleopatra’s “Don’t beat the messenger” scene. It’s a role I’d never like to play, the messenger, and yet, looking at the heavens? I get blamed for the message that’s coming from the stars.

Horoscopes by the Fishing Guide to the Stars starting 4.24.2014

taurusTaurus: Imprecision can drive you crazy. Imprecise statements, measurements that are approximate, and numbers that are arbitrarily rounded up and down, with no discernible pattern? Drives your Taurus self crazy, now doesn’t it?

This horoscope start off with mush. Not exactly mud, but — perhaps — particulate matters suspended in a colloidal fashion. Like mud. Mud-like substance. Mud-like consistency, anyway.

With the advent of Taurus birthdays, though, there’s a chance to mix and mould that mud-like material into what you want it to be. Think about this over the weekend, and next week? Starting on Monday? Take that imprecise, solid-without-form material and use that Taurus birthday wish to make it what you want it to be. Wish it. Dream it. Make and mould it with your own hands.

Gemini: I picked this up from a feminist friend. She claimed that studies proved, “Women think 90% more than men do,” and half the time?

“All things that are,
Are with more spirit chased than enjoy’d.”

    Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice [II.vi.15-6]

Cardinal Cross: Uranus (Aries) “squares” Jupiter (Cancer) “squares” Mars (Retrograde, Libra) “squares” Pluto (Capricorn) “squares” Uranus (Aries). And around we go.

Horoscopes by the Fishing Guide to the Stars starting 4.17

TaurusTaurus: Technical notations? Taurus Tech Talk? At the very beginning of this horoscope, the Sun is in Aries, 27 degrees. At the end, the sun is 3 degrees, 57 minutes of Taurus. More Taurus than Aries. Then, too, Mercury slips into Taurus, and that’s going to add to the Taurus flavor we all crave. So we’re running this week with Taurus, first. This weekend? Cool it. Birthdays aren’t here yet. Starting on next Monday morning? Really, Sunday, but let’s be fast and loose with this, starting Monday morning, we’re all ready for the good stuff in Taurus. Bring on the cake and parties. I try to arrange a fishing trip for my birthday. That’s how I like to celebrate another turn of the planet, as one singer suggests, another trip around the sun. I’m unsure if a coastal fishing trip with a girlfriend is what you’re looking for, as a birthday gift. Adjust this as need be, but let’s start making some serious birthday plans. You’re going to have to do some of the work yourself, like call that one place you like to stay, and make sure you’ve got a good girlfriend lined up for the weekend. I’m sure one of the aforementioned Cardinal signs would jump at a chance to get away.

Gemini: This isn’t the first time I’ve heard this expression, but it’s been a long while. “It’s not vanilla,” the child said to me, “it’s white.” She was opting for a yogurt dessert, and that’s what she called it. To me, I can read the label, it said, “Non-Fat, Vanilla Yogurt.” There’s a difference. Or maybe there’s not.

    “Our purses shall be proud, our garments poor;
    For ’tis the mind that makes the body rich.”

Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew [IV.iii.165-6]

Horoscopes by the Fishing Guide to the Stars starting 4.10

astrofish.netAries: “Purpose driven Aries,” and “purpose driven horoscopes,” and I ran out of phrases to tack on to the expression, like this, “Purpose Driven (blank).” This next Full Moon, Mars in apparent retrograde motion, all adds up to tons of drive, but no direction. I’m here to help my fine, Aries friends. Time to pick a direction. The Pluto square Uranus square Jupiter aspect lends a clue as to the direction, the new Aries direction. I ticked off three planets. Three planets ticked you off, too. Instead of picking one direction, hold out your left hand (assuming you’re right handed) or right hand (if you’re left handed), and count off three possible goals. Three possible directions. Three. Not one, three. “But I only have one,” whines an Aries in the back of the room. My point. Pick three, not just one. Set three goals. Pick three obstacles to be surmounted. You have three times the power of other signs, so use that. Employ that energy. Get with the plan. Pick three, not just one. Pick three? We have us a “Purpose Driven Aries.” There’s a further clue, too: pick three. Not all three will happen, but that doesn’t make you a failure. Purpose-driven, remember?

Taurus: Yeah, yeah, yeah, “tis the mind that makes the body rich,” from Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. While, taken both in and out of context, the comment means the same? While, the comment stands alone as a solid piece of advice? None of that matters, not now. Only, it might. Big, emotional roller coaster ride, this next couple of days. From bad, to worse.

Venus enters Pisces

    “The pale moon shines by night;
    And when I wander here and there,
    I then do most go right.
    If tinkers may have leave to live,
    And bear the sow-skin budget,
    Then my account I well may give,
    And in the stocks avouch it.”

Autolycus in Shakespeare’s Winter’s Tale [IV.iii.17-23]

Horoscopes by the Fishing Guide to the Stars starting 4.3

astrofish.netAries: If the clothes make the man, then I’m fairly useless. For at least half of my professional career, my attire consisted of Austin Formal, which is shorts and a Hawaiian shirt. In Austin, over the years, I often was shirtless, with a shirt in hand. Especially in the months that are warm, like January through December, most days. Drifting further south and with a slight change in peers, my attire didn’t change much. However, it was cold last week, and I showed up for a meeting wearing jeans, black t-shirt, with a casual sports coat over that. The reaction was varied, but quite strong. “Kramer? I didn’t recognize you.” Of course, there’s always the, “My you clean up well.” With my hair back in a ponytail, “Where’s your hair?” All interesting, all because my environmental influence suggested long pants and something warm.

“Wow, you look good in clothes.”

Still, all a part of me. As an Aries, I’d suggest you use a similar stunt. Dress up for the occasion. Doesn’t have to be anything drastic, like me, it was just jeans and t-shirt, sport coat, because it was cool outside.

Taurus: There’s a Taurus author in my client files. Dear friend, good client, excellent writer. My message was simple, “As soon as Amazon has your book in their catalog, I’ll link to it.” Why do I do it like that? Simple, really….

“Let none presume
To wear an undeserved dignity.”

Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice [II.ix.42-3]

astrofish.netAries: Talk about getting something backwards? The way this was delivered, it falls in one of those sort of amusing comments, at least to me. A friend was explaining about a sexual harassment situation. Works at a large corporation. Rules, bylaws, company guidelines, and from my own files? Don’t date the help. However, this one, she had a different way of seeing it. “If he’s cute, and hitting on me? It’s flirting. If he’s not cute? I’m calling HR.” It’s possible to pin this a number of different ways. I found it darkly comic. I was reminded that I came of age when it was possible to flirt outrageously and not have it be considered out-of-place. Wasn’t considered harassment, at least not in my mind. I’m also a little more “equal opportunity” when it came to such flirtations. As an Aries, though, it’s important to learn the distinctions, and unlike me, it’s really not OK to flirt with the cute ones but leave the regular ones out to suffer the wrath of HR. Not cool. Don’t be a tool, not now. It’s plenty of influences, but mostly Mars. Can leave the wrong message.

Taurus: The bumper sticker read, “Fish hard!” Underneath that, there was a subsidiary line, “Girls fish too!” More myth than reality, but I’m not counting. Buddy of mine has a standing date to guide with “Babes on the Bay” tournament, every year. It could happen. But that’s not what this is about. What that bumper sticker reminded me?
