    “Are these the breed of wits so wonder’d at?”

Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost [V.ii.266]

Horoscopes by the Fishing Guide to the Stars starting 7.24

Leo The (mighty) Leo: The “Mighty Leo”? Seriously, the best of the best. Here’s the deal, happy birthday and all that stuff, but listen up: let’s take this good fortune, fame and acclaim, let’s take this good stuff, what the planets are serving up, let’s take this and put it to good use. Let’s take this and stretch it out. There’s a highly symbolic gesture required of you. Symbolic, or, maybe, less symbolic and more practical. If this were me? I’d make sure, some time in the next 24 hours, I’d make sure “I wet a-line.” That means, in my language, that I’d fish. Some call it “Drowning bait,” others refer to it as “whipping the water,” an imitation the fishing line flailing back and forth across the water.(1)

I’d hit the local lake, the river, the creek, the ocean, the bay, whatever serves as your ideal location. Then I’d fish. I’d probably try to do it at least for a full morning, but only a few hours, anything is better than nothing. Get after it. One action that you love the most, pursue it.

(1) It’s called “Fishing,” and it’s not called, “catching.”

Virgo: The Rio Grande Valley is one of my main sources for citrus. I was squeezing some locally produced Key Limes for a lime/paprika dish. I’m sure I’ve included the recipes in the blog someplace, and anyway, as I was squeezing these limes, like a dozen or more, I got to thinking about Virgo.

    “Every bondman in his own bears
    The power to cancel his captivity.”

Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar [I.iii.101]

Horoscopes by the Fishing Guide to the Stars starting 7.17.2014

cancerCancer: Most Cancer individuals have a “hoarding gene.” While not as fully developed in some, others have this insane need to collect stuff that will never be thrown away. “Hoarding Gene,” is what I call it. Having not fully mapped the human genome, I can’t point to an exact spot on the double helix that is our spirit in chemical form, and say, “There, that’s the hoarding anomaly.” As birthdays close out this weekend, as we celebrate the last of the Cancer’s Solar Returns, as you collect, collate and coordinate all the good wishes, trinkets and so forth? Think about what you can unload. Good time to get rid of stuff, coming up. Rather than “unload,” I prefer to think of it as “recycling,” as I find worthy charities, or just fishing buddies, and unload the stuff on them. There are sentimental items and good wishes we like to carry forward, but now? By this next week? Be careful, pick and choose what you want to carry forward.

The (mighty) Leo: Get ready. Early next week? You know what’s going to happen? As the Sun enters the majestic sign of Leo?

Horoscope starting July 10, 2014

    “…if their heads had any
    Intellectual armor, they could
    Never wear such heavy head-pieces””

Shakespeare’s Henry V [III.vii.133-5]

Jupiter is heading into Leo –

Horoscope starting July 10, 2014

cancerCancer: The ever-present crush of technological innovation, this pervasive influence? I went to a “lap-top” only set up some years ago, and now? I’m almost to the point where I can do everything on a over-sized phone. Not quite a tablet, but more than just a phone. I need a little more screen real estate than most smart phones provide. The goal is to be able to be in a reclining form, like, in bed, propped up, with the device in my hands, maybe watching TV, and still being tied into the inter-webs and stuff. E-mail, messages, texts, plus looking at my favorite websites, all of that. Connected but not too connected? It’s probably bad Feng Shui to be thusly connected and intertwined in bed. Still, it has benefits. You want to be connected but not too connected. Be available, but not too available. Be aware but not up-to-the-second on the news. There’s a balance point, and I can’t get there, but I’m not a Cancer, and as such, you can get there. Or search out, at least, for starters. Connected, but not too connected.

The (mighty) Leo: “Tibetan Tea,” sometimes called Butter Tea, is common beverage, high in the mystical lands of Tibet. Ingredients? As the name would imply, it’s basically butter, salt, and tea, with several variations on the theme, ghee, spices, heavy cream, and other flavors can be added. This isn’t really about the contents of the Tibetan Tea, it has more to do with the traditional serving method.

    “Pig-like he whines”

Shakespeare’s Two Noble Kinsmen [V.iv.69]

The same could be said about me, “Oh shut up, Kramer, quit your whining.”

Oink.

Horoscopes by the Fishing Guide to the Stars starting 7.3

cancerCancer: 4th of July holidays are special. We celebrate, here, in a number of ways. Apple pie, fireworks, the good Cancer birthdays and parties. Usually pool parties. Lakes, seaside, beachside, any place we can mix water and alcohol. Not always a safe combination, and with what’s happening at the moment? Pick one. Out of two, pick one. There’s a simple message. I once happened across these party cups that were perfect: alcohol — helping white people dance. As it is your birthday, and as I would always suggest a beachside, seaside, lake side, creek side retreat? My weekend suggestion, planets be damned, is that recline at some “side” location of your choosing, a favorite, if possible, with an adult beverage of your choosing. Since Cancer is, at least in my understanding, a water sign, I do urge this be beside some water. Beverages and locations are up to you, as your circumstances allow. I’d prefer a fishing pole, but work out what suits you best.

The (mighty) Leo: Got ahold of a green shake. I was experimenting with various whey/protein shake mixes. This one was “all-natural, all organic, grass-fed, free-range protein.” List of the ingredients sounded about right, no chemicals on the label, looked like lawn clippings in the canister, sure, I was willing to give the stuff a try. Tasted OK, not great, but certainly better than the last homemade “kale-carrot” smoothie I made.

    “This bud of love, by summer’s ripening breath,
    June prove a beauteous flower when next we meet.”

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet [II.ii.129-30]

Horoscopes by the Fishing Guide to the Stars starting 6.26.2014

cancerCancer: Some days are just better than others. Sometimes, just when it seems like nothing is coming together properly, I’ll get a little hint that I’m doing something correctly. It was a simple task, really, not a big deal, in the grand scheme of life, but I needed a small indication that I was doing something correctly. It was timing on a lunch item I was fixing. The components aren’t that difficult to master, brown a small amount of free-range, grass-fed beef, add vegetables, then, at the last minute, drop chicken bits on top. Three steps. I was working on a Cancer horoscope, realized I needed to drop veggies in, and as I glanced down, the extra time spent twisting and turning the Cancer chart gave the meat enough time to get crispy. Crispy beef, tender veggies, it’s a good meal. This isn’t “cookbook astrology,” though, and certainly not “cookie-cutter” horoscopes. It was the extra time. The Mercury-inspired delay? Might work out to your benefit. Did for me, last time I fixed lunch.

The (mighty) Leo: Welcome to the real world. Or welcome to dream land. Perhaps this is a nightmare factory? It’s one of those, and you get to pick which one you like. The other two are optional. Pick which one you like the most. Real world, dreamland, nightmares. Pick one.
