- Now ’tis the spring, and weeds are shallow-rooted;
Suffer them now, and they’ll o’ergrow the garden,
And choke the herbs for want of husbandry.
The Queen in Shakespeare’s
King Henry 6th, Part 2 III.i.31-3

The play the introductory quote is drawn from? Most famous for its “Kill all the lawyers” line. Useless trivia. However, this week’s introductory line resonated so much stronger, about it being the spring, and it was the best time to pull the weeds from the garden. Get the invasive plants when they are shallow-rooted. It’s spring and, for me, a little late to be worrying about gardens and such. As a metaphor, though, it really struck a musical chord, being both Shakespeare — his purported birthday was jus the other day — and being poetical. As a Taurus, there is a little action you can take now, preventative measures, a form of weeding the garden, so to speak. Why this resonated. Taurus is an Earth Sign, right? There’s a strong, what your garden is might vary, but there’s strong urge to “Nip that sucker in the bud,” to borrow another garden image. So happy Taurus birthday, and realize, it’s a good time to nip that sucker in the bud, or, as I suggested, “and the weeds are shallow-rooted” now.
Scene from the streets of Austin, Texas? I was looking in the rear view mirror, well, first I was watching as a person, posing as homeless, worked a particular street corner. He said something to the first truck in line, guy rolled down the window and gave the panhandler some cash. Second car at the light, just ahead of me, the driver of that car handed over some cash. I kept my window up, conversing on the phone’s headset, smiled, and nodded “No.” Related to nothing, I believe in charity, but street corners in Austin are not my favored place. I watched, though, commenting that the panhandler had a good line, as the two cars in front of me gave him cash. Gemini — always admire a proficient salesman, no matter what he’s selling. It’s a Gemini thing, right? I watched as he went to the car that pulled in behind me.
