- The dragon wing of night o’erspreads the earth,
And stickler-like the armies separates.
My half-supp’d sword that frankly would have fed,
Pleas’d with this dainty bait, thus goes to bed.
Achilles in Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida V.viii.17-20
Having seen this one play several times, on stage, in London, it’s a strange one. I read it as a “Black comedy” first time I encountered it. Subject to interpretation, and your mileage may vary. “The dragon wing of night” inspired me, for this week’s scope. Bit of a mixed metaphor.
Sun’s in Libra, we can all see both sides?

There’s a really old computer-to-printer trick, used to work with the old ink–jet when the technology was new and cheap. Take an image, for example, and have it run out at twice the size desired, so, let’s say it’s a 4 X 6 image, right? Make that 8 X 12 on the computer with corresponding resolution. In my example, I would use double size image at 300 DPI, then have the printer print it at half size. This “tricked” the computer and printer combination into an effective resolution of 600 DPI. It was a way to use existing technology and get a little better performance out of it. Someplace along the line, and at least one techie will point out my trick doesn’t work, and that’s true, it no longer works — except as an illustration of a point. Point and process. With Libra birthdays, and with Venus in her new position, in Libra? We need to be s little sly, a little tricky and yet, straightforward about the process. That trick really doesn’t produce a photo image that carries a higher resolution — up against the limits of the hardware: the printer. But it does produce an image that looks a little sharper than the original. Weird how that works. Tricky, but really, straightforward. Happy Birthday, baby!
As much as I adore my little Scorpio friends, there’s always that totally fixed nature about them. Stubborn, to some, while I do prefer the term, “Tenacious,” seriously, that’s just a nice way to say “stubborn as all get out.” That being duly noted?
