Horoscopes for 9.12.2019

    “My father nam’d me Autolycus, who being, as I am, litter’d under Mercury, was likewise a snapper-up of unconsider’d trifles.”

Shakespeare’s Winter’s Tale IV.iii.22

Happy Virgo Birthday!

Mars adds a level snark to Virgo that, to some, has been previously unnoticed. Birthdays, yes, Full Moon in Pisces, yes, other events as need be, but that’s not what this is about; however, what it adds up to? You’ve got an extra dose of caustic wit, ready to unload. Kind of dangerous, too, as that Virgo snippy comment can really hurt — cuts a little too close. Yeah, well, you’re right, you were 100% correct, but still, that’s some painful stuff. Don’t need to be mean about. Then, I had a thought. Perfect response, you can have on hand, ready to use as need be, this week?

“If you don’t want a sarcastic answer, then why did you ask such a stupid question?”

Happy birthdays, etc. Might want to tone down the snark. Oh, you can hurl epithets at me, I’m used to that from Virgo, but others? Tone it down?

Libra

Coming back from fishing, we’d taken a long run out in the bay, and the ride back? Afternoon wind had kicked up. Bay’s water was churned up and choppy, and ride itself was a pounding. Thin padding on the seats, too rough to stand, and just an overall experience I would like to never repeat. I’m getting too old for this kind of a ride.

O wonderful, when devils tell the troth!

    Lady Anne in Shakespeare's Richard III (I.ii.73)

Happy Virgo Birthday!

One summer, I changed things up. The super-mega-big-box giant had a sale on flip-flops. Ninety-eight cents. $0.98. Perfect price, even with state sales tax? Just a little over a single dollar.

A perfect summer sandal, at a price even I can love. When did we become such a throwaway culture? For me, this was an experiment, and after a fashion, marginally successful. However, the cheap footwear, eventually I cycled through three or four pair. There were echoes from childhood as the “straps” would break free from their mooring, and the sandal was more flop than anything else. It was an experiment, for me, and one I’m less likely to repeat. Each pair eventually wound up in the trash, and that was only one summer’s worth of wear. Maybe I’m hard on equipment. Maybe flip-flops aren’t as durable as they used to be. Maybe, what we remember from our past, and the way things are right now? Maybe that’s what’s different. As a birthday notion?

Libra

No amount of physical protection can save your Libra self from what seems to be happening. Sounds a bit dire. Still, there comes a time in a person’s life when the only shield, or source of succor, is some foundation in a spiritual belief. To some, this is clearly religion. To others, this some kind of faith-based organization, and to some of us? This is simply a series of spiritual practices derived from years of seeking. Obviously from some of my locations, some folks believe in the healing power of various crystals. Whatever works. My own system is drawn from diverse sources.

Horoscopes for 8.29.2019

    “Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie,
    Which we ascribe to Heaven.”

— Helena in Shakespeare’s
All’s Well That Ends Well Act 1, Scene 1

Happy Birthday!

Inspiration, especially Virgo inspiration comes in strange places. Paraphrasing from an outdoor supplier, there were three bullet points. 1. Always look cool. 2. Don’t get lost. 3. If you do get lost, look cool. I realize that, in this birthday season, I shouldn’t be so liberal with my “borrowing,” but to paraphrase those bullet points again? In light of the planets, and what they are doing, at this very moment? Think of this as three Virgo dictums to live by, this next week, and happy Virgo birthday. Now, those three simple guidelines?

1. Always look Virgo cool.
2. Don’t get lost.
3. If you do get lost, at least look Virgo cool.

Have a good birthday week.

One of the goals, evident in my corpus of work, for sure? But a common goal throughout the various mediums? Make a digital image appear analog. Think about a font, a typeface that looks like handwriting. That’s a perfect example. Some kind of effort to make an image, typically a networked computer display, makes that look like it was hand-drawn, or sketched, or the lettering looks like it is done individually. Over the years, I’ve toyed with various ways to draw and display the image for the each’s zodiac sign’s symbol. For several years, I used scans of hand-drawn symbols, as a good example of trying to make digital look analog. As the week rolls into the weekend, then next week starts?
