The miserable have no other medicine
    But only hope:
    I have hope to live, and am prepar’d to die.
    Claudio in Shakespeare's Measure for Measure 3.i.2-4

Happy Birthday!

So a buddy of mine is a cop. I mean, he is a duly sworn officer of the law. I have several friends who are cops, really, but this one comes to mind. He stopped off after work one day; he had on regulation shorts, regulation T-Shirt with his affiliations, badges, and so forth. Then he had on a gun belt with handcuffs, weapon, mace, flashlight, and spare magazines. I think that’s what he wears. He was just coming in from a traffic detail, ball cap, read, “Police.” Shorts because it was still summer. He is a handgun trainer, a reiki master, cop, and officer of the law. All of that. Really a nice guy, too, but not important, right? Eventually, a number of my associates were uncomfortable because he had a weapon on his hip. Really? Him? He’s totally harmless. I wouldn’t like to meet him in professional capacity, but there was a moment of hilarity, “Wonder who he is here to see?” I turn around and smile, “Dude!” Give him quick bro hug. Several associates snickered, “Figured he was here for Kramer…” What? Anyway, this is about birthday and appearance. Libra birthdays and Libra appearances. “I knew I shouldn’t wear my work uniform here,” he said. Eventually one promoter asked my buddy to leave, worried that his presence offend some of the patrons. Weird, I know.

Scorpio

One simple trick to make this work, especially given where Venus is, and her relative Scorpio influence. I got a couple of dollar store get-well cards. I keep then out at home, on a shelf near the front door. Folks always act more contrite.

The devil speed him! No man’s pie is freed
From his ambitious finger.

    Buckingham in Shakespeare’s Henry 8 (1.1.52-3)

Always got a finger in the pie, and soon? Venus goes into her retrograde pattern — is this bad?

Music is a special refuge for us. As a Libra compliant person, happy birthday baby, as a Libra-compliant person, I see this week about revisiting oldies but goodies. Varies from person to person as we all have different tastes. For some, this a familiar singer/songwriter in a local showcase. For some this stadium rock, past its prime, still touring smaller venues. All depends. Oldies but goodies. For some, I’ll just excavate some old tracks I had tucked away on a spare hard drive — music I didn’t want to part with completely, but something that was out of my personal rotation for a spell. Still, this is where this week’s solace and ultimately, Libra comfort can be found, old tunes. This is about revisiting old material rather than launching out into something, For the birthday? See what we can dig up from the old “listening” collections, be that mp3, DVD, CD, cassettes, or even records. Music is a special refuge and this week is about digging out the old tunes. Whatever that is. Happy birthday.

Scorpio

It was one of the memes — X number of questions about, or answers, or little known facts “about me”. One question? Favorite childhood game? For me? My favorite childhood game? Not getting caught. Current favorite Scorpio game?

Stay your thanks a while,
And pay them when you part.

Cosmic post-it notes. There stars, especially the Moon and Mercury, are conspiring to remind you about one item that, sort of, needs some Libra (Happy Birthday!) attention at the moment. Having dealt with some rather esoteric astrology theories, what I was looking at as I was thinking my way through your birthday chart, what came to my mind was some kind of a cosmic post-it note. In a birthday frenzy of activity, it is easy for the older notes to come unstuck, and slip behind what they are posted upon. Then, moments, minutes, months later, those old notes show up with gentle reminders on the old Libra “to-do” list. This isn’t complex, this isn’t onerous, this isn’t a problem. Think of me, and the stars, as gentle reminders that there was that last thing you didn’t want to forget, and you left off last summer. Looks like it was few months ago. In one form, or another, a reminder pops up. In my thinking, it was more like I moved a monitor stand, and there was a note with an astrological symbol on it as a reminder, to myself. Now, you’ll excuse me, birthday person, I wish you the best for the coming year, and I think we need to “Go see a guy about a dog,” right?

Really good BBQ requires no BBQ Sauce. Which is amusing to me, as a constant critic, the best places? Two of these places came to mind when I was searching for an example for this week’s energies in Scorpio. Two places with really good BBQ Sauce, but, the problem being, the low and slow smoked meat generally tastes excellent with no such adornments required. One place has a tangy sauce that is citrus, smoky, buttery, and hot, without being too hot for more delicate stomachs, and the problem? The pitmaster is good, and the artful selection of wood means the tender meat tastes better — to me — with no sauce required. Just plain, salt-and-pepper rub, be my guess. Another favorite place?
