“I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself:”

    Excerpt From: T. S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land.”

I tend to prefer to use Shakespeare’s canon for an introduction, I was sawing my way through the Eliot’s “The Waste Land” again, and I caught this bit as introduction for this week. Welcome to Sagittarius.

Uranus “squares” Pluto, but what does that mean?

SagSagittarius: There’s a literary detective, or maybe it’s just cozy little murder-mysteries, but anyways, the main character, I won’t give out his name, the main character, the detective, he buys flowers as part of the first scene’s set-up. Not to give it away, but the bouquet has much to do with the how long the story will take to resolve. Not unlike my own experience with store-bought flowers, which, in my examples, have lasted anywhere from two days to two weeks, the mystery that is solved, the end of the tale is when the flowers are dead and carried to the waste bin. Recycling would be in keeping with the times, but whatever. One story is the length of a single rose bud, and I’ve seen those things go in as little as two days. Which was about right, as he worked for 48 hours to solve the one case, doing so, without giving it away, with a little bit of “Deus Ex Machina” solution, if you ask me. But no one did. Murder Mystery, flowers, and the start of Sagittarius, what’s this mean? It’s a good week. We have something starting, like fresh cut flowers might last a while or might not last long. Up to you, Sagittarius, like the author of that series? You’re in charge.

CapricornCapricorn: “Tag, you’re IT!”

Sorry, all I could think about, a kid’s game. Just a simple version of tag. The person who is “it” has to chase the other players. When another player is tagged, then that player becomes the one who chases. Chased and chaser.

    “Things without all remedy
    Should be without regard: what’s done, is done.”

Shakespeare’s Lady Macbeth in The Scottish Play [Act 3, Scene 2]

ScorpioScorpio: There’s a certain finality to statements, deeds and actions. I’ve long since learned to listen very carefully to my Scorpio friends. Never cross them, if it is humanely possible. Even if it’s not possible, I still don’t cross the Scorpio buddies. Not worth it, eternal fires and damnation. Nope, not worth it. However, that being noted, I’m but a sole voice in the sea of many, and I’m the only one preaching this message about not crossing a Scorpio. As this week unfolds, birthdays, Saturn, Venus, Mercury, all movement like that? The key to happiness is a single word that should be an action: forgiveness. I am unsure how to put it into action, but please, my Scorpio friends, please forgive us. Sometimes we act rashly. No need for you to reciprocate in an equally rash way. Except me, I know better. You get the idea, right?

SagSagittarius: As I sit here, examining the dark, underbelly of the Sagittarius psyche, I wonder. I wonder if I’m qualified to write about this. I wonder if I should keep pushing forward. I wonder if I should quit wondering. I wonder if my wandering brain needs some kind of medication. It’s the long, dark night of the Sagittarius soul. Maybe not a long night. Maybe just a few short days. Maybe not…

“Saturn and Venus this year in conjunction! What says th’ almanac to that?”

    Prince Hal in Shakespeare’s Henry IV, part 2, lines 110

8scorpioScorpio: I do very few group readings anymore. They are not comfortable for me, and most good Scorpio’s really, and I mean really, don’t want to share secrets. I adore my Scorpio buddies, but they don’t share well. The biggest problem with the next few days? It isn’t non-Scorpio people, no the biggest issue is my Scorpio buddies revealing too much, too fast, too often. Too. There’s an almost pathological inability to be quiet with the current planetary array, between Mars, and everything else. Here’s the deal, silence is worth $100 a minute. Do you have enough to pay for that? If not, how about just keeping quiet and not having to pay for the silence? Some days, silence is golden. Some days, even better than gold. Besides, a quiet, silent Scorpio, who would be amazed at that?

9sagSagittarius: There is an unhealthy attachment some of my friends have to certain things. Some folks suggest I, too, have an unhealthy attachment to certain items, as well, like phones, computers, tablets. Brand loyal. Brand conscious. Some days, I do. Other days, not so much. This is about cutting one of those cords. Maybe not even cutting the cord that ties our Sagittarius self to that possession, more like giving it some line, room to run.

    “My heart
    Leaps to be gone in mother’s bosom.”

Shakespeare’s Pericles, Prince of Tyre [V.iii.54-5]

scorpioScorpio: “Let’s talk about it!” Simple sentiment, sums it all up. This is much less complicated than you figure it is. Instead of complicating it too much, not always a Scorpio trait, but an inherent risk under the current influence? Simple suggestion, talk about it. Might help to preface your talk with, “Maybe,” or, “possibly,” and, “perhaps,” which are all shortened forms of, “a potential outcome of these set of circumstances might be.”

Birthdays, no more retrogrades, maybe other stuff, which is why, with utmost certainty, you should follow my lead, and hand out a definite maybe. Not always a Scorpio trait to equivocate, but not a bad one to try, just for now.

Sagittarius HoroscopeSagittarius: Buddy of mine hurt himself — badly — washing dishes. Soapy water, sink with suds, warm water, might have been some adult beverages involved. Hand slipped, plate broke, finger got sliced open. Tough break, huh? Know what it means?

    “There is a tide in the affairs of men.
    Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;”

— Brutus in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar Act 4, Scene 3

scorpio Scorpio: “Bait and Switch” refers to the deceptive — and now illegal — sales tactic of advertising one item then switching it for a similar, but much higher priced, product at the checkout. There are numerous variations on this theme, but as a tactic, it is effective. As a way to lure in an unsuspecting buyer, it is without parallel. As far as being shady, unscrupulous, and downright bad? Yes, there is that, but results count. Mercury compounded with the current motion of Mars is playing a game with Scorpio, and to me, this looks like a “bait and switch” deal as perpetrated by the planets. Forewarned is prepared, and I aim to save your Scorpio bacon before this is all done. Watch for the cosmic “bait and switch,” then I’ll save your Scorpio butt beaucoups of bucks.

Shoot me a note when this pays off.

Sagittarius HoroscopeSagittarius: The Sagittarius blacklist? Seriously? Yes. We all have one. I’ve only got, like, two email addresses on mine, and in person? Not many people I avoid. There will always be one ex that caused so much pain, I mean, I think everyone has at least on of those on the personal list, but even then, as I get older, I tend to forgive the old injuries. About that Sagittarius blacklist, though?
