Horoscopes for 2-25-2021
K. Edw. (Kneeling.) By earth, the common mother of us all,
By Heaven, and all the moving orbs thereof,
By this right hand, and by my father’s sword,
And all the honours ’longing to my crown,
I will have heads, and lives for him, as many
As I have manors, castles, towns, and towers!— (Rises.)
- Marlowe’s Edward 2 3.2.132
Mars is headed into Gemini, arriving 3.3.2021, around 10:09 PM (you mileage may vary), Venus moves into Pisces, and there are the ongoing waning aspects of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius. But what do the horoscopes say?
Happy birthday. As Venus enters Pisces, and the Sun heads towards its annual Neptune alignment, I was toiling at a good way to explain how this works. It’s like a game show, like a studio game show on old-time broadcast TV. I never watched those shows, and I never paid much attention, but the games — despite appearances — aren’t really rigged. They are chopped up into bite-sized segments so there’s a sense of urgency, triumph, tragedy, and failure, with at least one obvious victor.
This all gets about 20 minutes of screen time, so it has to be fast-paced, relatively speaking. There’s dramatic action, and at least one family member spends a portion of her afternoons yelling at some contestants on a show, but that’s not what I was thinking about. (Hi Mom) I was more along the lines of the questions, and how each question has a right answer, a wrong answer, and then, there’s always the option to guess. As an avowed Pisces fan, I know that you know the best answer to the game-show-like questions this week, and the best answer? For all the money on the board, or all the points, or however that is scored? The best answer is a very Pisces intuitive guess. It’s really a guess based on a surprising accumulation of facts, but it is that, “It just came to me” kind of answer. Win big? I want 1%.
Inspiration is a tricky, fickle experience. Sometimes, it hits like a freight train rolling through the night, nothing that can be avoided. Other times, it takes a ticklish touch to tease out the tempting morsels and suggestions that the muse might offer up. Inspiration isn’t necessarily in short supply with Aries, but the up and coming shift in Mars will have some strange effects on the Aries affect. See how I worked that in?
