For who so firm that cannot be seduced?

As the moon fills out, life gets better and better. The problem, and as a Sagittarius myself, I feel this just as much if not more so than others, is the pesky Mercury. Getting closer and closer to Jupiter, and that ramps up the Sagittarius “play” function. Or talk-feature, or, with some of us? The “I can’t shut up and listen” aspect of who we are. This is a reminder, as much for myself as for any other delicate Sagittarius, shut up. Listen.

Learn to listen, again. Yes, holidays, yes, someone wants us to make a speech, and guess what? Short, declarative sentences, keeping the distance from the beginning to the end as short as possible? That works best. Short, concise, to the point, and not a lot of my typical excessive verbiage, which, frankly, does look and sound pretty to my ears, but avails us naught. Mercury is the “play” function, the “talk” button, but having a platform from which to speak? That doesn’t mean this is a good time to take advantage of that. Nothing serves us better than a quick, short, “Thank you, thank you very much.” All that is required.

Happy Birthday!

Like this week’s opening quote: one line. All that is required.

There was a time when the allure of a rare, hopefully esoteric, text was quite powerful. Dusty, old books with mountains of information and archaic styled language, weird punctuation, phrases that don’t parse well to a modern ear? That kind of book. Usually, too, some of these books — a mountain of such texts — dusty tomes from forgotten times when bookbinding was an art? There is a certain aroma. I adore old books, even to this day.

    My lord, I rescued her;
    Her Highness is in safety, fear you not.
    But on, my liege, for very little pains
    Will bring this labor to an happy end.

The Bastard in Shakesperare’s King John (III.ii.7-10)

Ever consider the lines in a parking lot? Especially one of those big lots, usually attached to a large retail establishment? The lines and arrows all point this way and that, and the lines are guidelines. One is supposed to park within the lines. Doesn’t mean it happens. Frequently, we used to pull through one place, and with a fishing boat in tow? The easily takes two spots. One buddy he will occupy at least four spots, truck pulling a boat, but he is considerate: park way far away from the front door. He’s not taking up spaces that other folks could be using, that’s for sure. So the lines in the parking lots of life, think of them, sure, hard to ignore, and places marked out, sure, but unless there are curbs and parking bumps? All those stripes and lines, arrows and such? More like suggested and proscribed rather than hard and fast. Sure, we all try to park within the lines, but when there’s some jerk taking up two spaces, we just grumble then adjust as need be. Personally, given the current times, and Jupiter in Sag? I would think about parking at the extremity of the parking lot of life right now. Easier to walk an extra 50 meters and not worry about door dings. The parking lot lines are just suggested, not always accurate, despite what the signs suggest. Suggested guidelines — that’s all — suggested.

In analysis, in retrospect, I realized I was over-thinking a solution. I built an answer to a problem, and the answer to the problem was far more complicated than it needed to be. Analyzing my first, second, and then third solution to fix that problem? Way more complicated than it needed to be. Follow my path, though, in this case, why I’m called a guide? Follow my path.
