Horoscopes for 4.25.2019

    Now ’tis the spring, and weeds are shallow-rooted;
    Suffer them now, and they’ll o’ergrow the garden,
    And choke the herbs for want of husbandry.

The Queen in Shakespeare’s
King Henry 6th, Part 2 III.i.31-3

Taurus

The Bull


The play the introductory quote is drawn from? Most famous for its “Kill all the lawyers” line. Useless trivia. However, this week’s introductory line resonated so much stronger, about it being the spring, and it was the best time to pull the weeds from the garden. Get the invasive plants when they are shallow-rooted. It’s spring and, for me, a little late to be worrying about gardens and such. As a metaphor, though, it really struck a musical chord, being both Shakespeare — his purported birthday was jus the other day — and being poetical. As a Taurus, there is a little action you can take now, preventative measures, a form of weeding the garden, so to speak. Why this resonated. Taurus is an Earth Sign, right? There’s a strong, what your garden is might vary, but there’s strong urge to “Nip that sucker in the bud,” to borrow another garden image. So happy Taurus birthday, and realize, it’s a good time to nip that sucker in the bud, or, as I suggested, “and the weeds are shallow-rooted” now.

Scene from the streets of Austin, Texas? I was looking in the rear view mirror, well, first I was watching as a person, posing as homeless, worked a particular street corner. He said something to the first truck in line, guy rolled down the window and gave the panhandler some cash. Second car at the light, just ahead of me, the driver of that car handed over some cash. I kept my window up, conversing on the phone’s headset, smiled, and nodded “No.” Related to nothing, I believe in charity, but street corners in Austin are not my favored place. I watched, though, commenting that the panhandler had a good line, as the two cars in front of me gave him cash. Gemini — always admire a proficient salesman, no matter what he’s selling. It’s a Gemini thing, right? I watched as he went to the car that pulled in behind me.

Horoscopes for 4.18.2019

    There be many Caesars,
    Ere such another Julius. Britain’s a world
    By itself, and we will nothing pay

    For wearing our own noses.

Cloten in Shakespeare’s
Cymbeline III.i.11-4

Horoscopes for 4.18.2019

The sun moves into the Tropical Zodiac sign of Taurus on April 20, 2019, around 2:55 AM (Central), but, as always your mileage might vary.

As the Sun enters Taurus, the Sun aligns with Uranus, briefly. The question I thought of, and this applies now, is “brilliance” hereditary? Does it run in families, or is there some kind of genetic fluke that makes this possible? The idea of brilliance came, because, as this alignment occurs, there will great flashes of insight. Depth, understanding, like a certain kind of brilliance. Did this mental acuity, did this perception of intellectual horsepower, did this understanding of the human psyche exist all along? Was it inherited? Or was this a predisposition of the planets, enforced by this kind of an alignment, something that adds spark to an otherwise dull mind, all of a sudden-like? Which is it? Who knows. The brilliance is triggered, by this week’s “Stars in Taurus,” and likewise? Taurus will be a star. With Uranus, especially, the correct application of this new-found “brilliance” is to not fritter and fret from whence it came, no, grab that insight and move forward. What steps, what path, what new — and uncharted — route beckons for Taurus? With this week’s stars, you can see how to make this work, and for the one? Happy birthday, baby!

Gemini

“Strange things are a-foot at the Circle K,” a rather dated pop-culture reference. Explains much, though, to Gemini. Dated pop-culture reference that is an antecedent towards much of what is happening now? Yes, we’ve seen this before. “Mercury isn’t retrograde, is it?” No, that is not the issue. There’s an arcane, get get used to it, strange energy loose this week, and maybe next week, and we will see this again. Best way to approach the energies, for that Gemini, now that we know, “Strange things are afoot at the Circle K?”

    Nay, you must not freeze,
    Two women plac’d together makes cold weather.

Lord Chamberlain in
Shakespeare’s Henry VIII, (I.iv.22-3)

Digging round, guess it was after Valentine’s Day, and that observation from Lord Chamberlain’s character popped up. Forgot what I was looking for. But it is — kind of — true. Anyway, happy birthday!

This week is the “Eye of the hurricane.” As soon as I started to suggest that, an aural manifestation, “Eye of the Tiger” started to play in the background. Heard it in the store, on the background music thing. Whatever. Eye of the Tiger is not what this is about. “Eye of the hurricane,” that’s the most apt metaphor. Hurricane, cyclones to some, are whirling masses of water, moisture in the air, and pressurized patterns, spinning at hundred miles an hour — or more. However, right in the center? There’s a little space of calm. With the Gulf of Mexico in my backyard, I’ve seen animations and satellite pictures all my life. It’s that eye, the cenrterpoint, the place that everything revolves around? That’s where I see your Aries self at the moment. This week is the “eye of the hurricane,” and the next person to start playing Eye of the Tiger, I will manually correct. Just about every summer, there’s a hurricane report, and some intrepid news reporter is standing in relative calm, with carnage and mother nature’s destruction clearly visible. For a few moments, the winds subside. For a few moments, there is calm in the face of raging atmospheres. For a few moments, everything is peaceful. Eye of the hurricane. It’s an eerie kind of calm. Happy birthday, let’s try and stay centered, Aries.

Taurus

To me, these used to be “Thoughts at Two A.M.” Not a real title, but close enough. I would adjust this some, as well, “Metaphysical meanderings of the mind at 4 A.M.” All kind of depends, but the idea is that there is a mental derailment, usually under the cover of night. When most people are asleep. Organically, I tend to be an early riser, and business-wise, I tend to shut my phone off at supper time. I can stay up at night, reading, or watching, but mostly I’m asleep early, like any little old man. Works for me. Like me some beauty rest. So I don’t get the night terrors, or shock awake thing. Well, not anymore. But the idea of the late night thoughts?
