Cancer:Some days, I feel badly for my fishing buddies. In this one example, it was kind of a rough day on the water. The bay was churned up from a recent weather front, and while that made for cool conditions, a stiff but errant and unpredictable breeze added some chop to the waters. Stiff north wind, and we were working in a spot that faced into that north wind. Heavy weights and lots of live bait? Worked well enough for me, as I’m sure there are some pictures on the web someplace. We anchored, facing a small creek, or creek–like feature that was draining into the bay with the outgoing tide. A school of Reds was feeding off whatever was draining into the bay, at that spot. I’d sail a piece of bait up there, watch the current pull the line a bit, and then, “Wham!” Fish on! My buddy in the back of the boat was catching nothing. I swapped positions, after my third keeper, hoping to help his luck. No luck. Exact same bait. Exact same tackle set–up. Exact same position. Nothing. He was even landing his bait in the very place where I was catching fish after fish.
Luck is funny like that. This birthday week in Cancer? I wonder if you are lucky like me, or ill–fated like my buddy. I’m thinking, birthdays and all? Luck is on your side. Like me.
The Leo:July 10, 5:37 AM, more or less, as some of these are approximate times, but that’s about the time when the Moon opposes Mercury. Mercury, in Leo, and the Moon, in Aquarius. There are other influences, as well, but that one seemed most significant. “This is an opposition, so it’s bad, right?”
