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

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

Horoscopes by the Fishing Guide to the Stars starting 10.30

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?

    “Why then the world’s mine oyster,
    Which I with sword will open.”

— Pistol in Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor (Act 2, Scene 2)

LibraLibra: Further, faster, more, better. These are words that echo along the Libra mental pathways, the canyons of the mind, echoing off the distant hills. These are the words that seem to have a certain dose of recrimination in them, a hint of a sneer. Not really birthday stuff, now is it? But it is!

The Mercury Retrograde, this one, right now, the tone is set for the next year, and what the message is, since we’re not all clear? It’s about relationships. Past, present and future, but the emphasis is on “past” relationships. Bad movie, good star, the “ghost of girlfriends passed” is my own haunting, and for Libra, there’s a similar hint. Now, birthdays and all? Let’s agree that there’s a message in the hidden passed. It’s okay to listen to that message. Repeating it, though, over and over? That’s not the idea. This is mere Mercury Retrograde material. Need to look at it. Don’t need to wallow in it — birthday times and all, you know.

Scorpio: I was digging though an old file, a loose collection of papers, looking for some particular document. Piece of paper that proved I was right, I think. Excavating non-digital material is bizarre, as I only keep absolutely necessary scraps of paper. I came across an unused Valentine’s Day card.

    “In nature there’s no blemish but the mind;
    None can be call’d deform’d but the unkind.”

— Sir Andrew in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night Act 3, Scene 4

LibraLibra: There’s a distinct, palpable change underfoot. As a Libra, you can’t not feel it as this occurs. Birthdays are good, and this isn’t a big problem, but as Mercury slides backwards into Libra, with Mars marching forward in Sagittarius, there’s a hint, a feeling, and more than one suggestion that things are difficult and only getting more so. It’s not true. “Ok, smart guy, you come over here and do my work!” I have no snappy retort for Libra, but I do want to point out between M & M? Mercury and Mars? There’s friction and energy, and instead of trying to push the door open? Read what the handle says, “Pull.” Makes sense, and works easier.

Scorpio: Big flood, terrible rain. Good rain, but lots of water. I was chatting with a nice guy who makes me coffee some mornings, “Yeah, I live off New Braunfels — every time it rains — I’m not sure if I can get home. They built a street in a dry creek bed. What were they thinking?” The conversation continued, and for those who are not familiar with the idiosyncrasies of San Antonio and rain?

“This is the long and short of it.”
Mistress Quickly in Shakespeare’s Merry Wives of Windsor [Act 2, scene 2]

Mercury Retrograde, the long and the short of it.

LibraLibra: Shakespeare’s Merry Wives is an odd play. The accepted tale, what I was told again and again, was that the Queen asked for a play about Falstaff, wherein the character gets his comeuppance. I’d like to think I read that in a text. Sounds like something a textbook would have, but right now, I can’t seem to find that text. Turns out, that the story about the play’s source is entirely fictional. There is no corroborating evidence, anecdotal or otherwise, that truly supports the statement that, “The play was requested by the Queen.” Like similar tales and myths, stories about stories, there’s a birthday myth you’re currently supporting. Like the story about the play’s origins, though, what your Libra self is supporting might be true. Feels true. Worried about the facts? Birthday time: don’t worry.

Scorpio: Can’t say this caught you by surprise, no, you were informed earlier this would happen As the tricky Trickster begins his slide backwards, and as your Scorpio self begins to feel like this is it, the end is near? Stop and consider some of the symbolism — look at what’s going on around you. I’m not talking about what’s played out against the backdrop of the international stage, not what this is about. This is about what’s happening in Scorpio land.
