Horoscopes for 6.20.2019

    Marriage, uncle? Alas, my years are young;
    And fitter is my study and my books
    Than wanton dalliance with a paramour.

1 Henry VI 5.7.20-222

He’d rather study than pursue romance. Huh. The suggestion, albeit good, seems atypical.

Horoscopes for 6.20.2019

Cancer

The Crab - the Moonchild
Fast. Slow. Hot, cold, make up your mind! “Would you make up your damn mind?” All I got is a definite maybe. Mars is funny like that, especially, on the heels of the opposition with Pluto then almost playing tag with Mercury. Just causes a certain amount of confusion as to what tempo this is supposed to be at.

This is 4/4 beat, right? Basic thump-thump-thump-thump, correct? Not hard to get. Boom-chicka-boom-chicka. Repeat as need be. Loop it. Basic thudding of the bass line to give it some rhythm, right? Sure. Fast. No, slow it down. No, speed it up. There is no even tempo at the moment. Those of us who are rhythmically challenged, yes, at least I know that I won’t be setting the beat, the pace, but the Cancer Moon Children will think they can set the pace. Only, it’s not fast enough, no, wait, too fast, slow it down, no speed it up. This is the function of Mr. Mars, and he’s on his way out, but he ain’t left yet. Fast. Slow.

Here, you drive (obviously I’m doing it wrong — but I’m not a Cancer).

The Leo

What I heard, and I’ll repeat is as the expression is useful, “You are messing with powers beyond your ken.” No Leo, and certainly not The Leo wants to hear that type of dire warning, and yet, there it is. Until further notice, or, at least another couple of weeks? No. Do not mess with it. I know, it would be fun to tweak it a little see what happens. No. Why?

Caliban:
Do not torment me! O!

Happy Birthday!

Gemini

Gemini
We make plans, we have goals, and then we have ideas. Wait, Gemini, remember, we have lots of ideas, all the time! We are Gemini! Still, those goals need some strategic action. Best if we plot a Gemini course, with amendable but specific steps.

Processes.

Goals, destinations, specific action to make that goal happen, because, oh birthday one! A goal, with no plan, is just a wish. Birthday time. Plan accordingly. Good to have goals, but what need are concrete steps to achieve those goals.

Cancer

One of the great joys about my work? I can follow any thread of thought, and watch. I can watch it unravel a garment, simply pull on and tearing at a single thread of a thought, toying, teasing, ultimately, forcing what’s under it to be revealed. With that single thread of a thought?

Horoscopes for 6.6.2019

Our stars must glister with new fire, or be
Today extinct. Our argument is love,
Which if the goddess of it grant, she gives
Victory too.

Palamon in Shakespeare’s
Two Noble Kinsmen 5.1.69-72

Horoscopes for 6.6.2019

Gemini

Gemini
Not content but how it is delivered, that’s the key. This stems from a certain comedian delivering nightly news, and how he would read the information, the way emphasis was placed? Made a huge difference. I was reading an email aloud, and the way it started, I did a faux, fey voice, affected, “Kramer, that’s silly and stupid....” Then, thinking about it, I listened to the same message over, as a gruff, stern male. One, the first, is humorous and the letter of intent is clearly heard. However, hearing the same message with a totally different inflection plainly indicates a different, more combative and pejorative stance. All from a single line of text, and all how it’s heard. Delivered. All in the delivery. So the delivery matters, and the emphasis, the inflection, the tone, all of that colors and shades of understanding. Meaning it’s less about what’s being said, and more about how it is said. Birthday theme for Gemini, less about what’s said, and more about how it is said.

Cancer

Digging around in Shakespeare stuff, I came across a reference that suggested, who suggested, as it was a person, that Shakespeare only contributed a small part to the play, Two Noble Kinsmen. All conjecture, but the textual analysis — allegedly computer generated — suggested that Shakespeare merely contributed a portion of dialogue of from a bit player. One of the fun — for me — reasons behind my obsession with Shakespeare’s works is because no more will be discovered, and there won’t be a lot to add but shading and nuance, or alternative interpretations. Like, I once saw The Taming of the Shrew performed by an all female cast. Good stuff. But no new plays, really. This week?
