Horoscopes for 12.12.2019

Sweet ladies, will it please you sit? Sir Harry,
Place you that side, I’ll take the charge of this.
His Grace is ent’ring. Nay, you must not freeze,
Two women plac’d together makes cold weather.

Lord Chamberlain in
Shakespeare’s Henry VIII 1.4.19-

Horoscopes for 12.12.2019

Full Moon in Sagittarius and Gemini, 12.12.2019 at 12:12 AM CDT or 12.11.2019 at 11:12 PM. Your Mileage May Vary. The December Deal special opportunity.


SagittariusThis is a gambler’s week. How much of a gambler are we? Just about every Sagittarius fancies him or her self as bit of bonviant and having certain touch with, “The ponies.” Or whatever, however, that shows up.

One of my little Sagittarius brothers kept insisting that he would always win on lotto scratchers. The deal is, the odds favor the house. In other words? No way we’re winning more than we spend. I’m a bit unusual in that — it has happened — I have won at games of chance. Pure luck and the odds are in our favor, but only just. There’s always a little warning that goes with this kind of a “gambler’s transit,” though: never spend more than we are willing to lose. Only spend what we’re willing to admit might not come back right away. Might not a be a good week to be making “investments,” which, to other people might look like a gamble. Careful, not saying “don’t,” just suggesting we make sure.

Your Mileage May Vary.


Secrets to success? I’ll let you in on a little secret that’s proven very effective this holiday season: ground cardamom. Organic, non-GMO, ground cardamom. In the past, I’ve trotted out the old “cinnamon in the coffee” routine, and met with warm accolades, but not nearly as cool as the cardamom. That spice has some kind of weird texture, and it’s more pungent, so I have to be more circumspect and careful with dosage. A single shake from the bottle is all it takes. Why a classical spice like this?

Horoscopes for 12.5.2019

    Yet this my comfort, when your words are done,
    My woes end likewise with the evening sun.

Egeon in Shakespeare’s
A Comedy of Errors (1.1.26-7)

Horoscopes for 12.5.2019

Full Moon in Sagittarius and Gemini, 12.12.2019 at 12:12 AM CDT or 12.11.2019 at 11:12 PM. Your Mileage May Vary. The December special deal.


Travel, it’s hardwired into my soul. I’m used to it, with all its vagaries, especially commercial air travel.

I looked up, and there was a guy dressed like a mountain man. Full beard, fuzzy hat, boots, backpack, long winter coat, and a muffler. I was dressed in shorts and sandals, T-shirt and a lightweight flannel shirt wrapped around my waist. I will be in a terminal, then departure lounge, then taxi, then motel. Never outside for more than a few moments. I’ve also spent the bulk of my adult life in the Sun Belt, the American South West. Mostly South Texas these days, and the winter weather can be quite warm. So the Mountain Man look amused me, trekking to the north lands, I guess, but for me, this is about the vagaries of travel. As a Sagittarius, we must be light on our feet at this time, easily adaptable to whatever might come our way. Where I was going, though, no winter wear was required.

As a Sagittarius?

While me must be ready for exigent circumstances? Just a little looking ahead makes this more comfortable with much less to carry, no matter what mode of transport we’re using.


While the conglomeration of planets stuck in Capricorn, they don’t all lend themselves to this kind of a simplistic definition? While Pluto/Venus, Saturn, and Jupiter — individually? Not so much. Combine the elements represented, and with the Sun still in Sagittarius, thank-you-very-much? Add it all up, and what do we have?

Horoscopes for 11-28-2019

Knights, kinsmen, lovers, yea, my sacrifices,
True worshippers of Mars, whose spirit in you
Expels the seeds of fear, and th’ apprehension
Which still is farther off it, go with me
Before the god of our profession. There
Require of him the hearts of lions and
The breath of tigers, yea, the fierceness too,
Yea, the speed also—to go on, I mean,
Else wish we to be snails.

Arcite in Shakespeare’s
The Two Noble Kinsmen 5.1.34-42

Horoscopes for 11.28.2019

Jupiter enters the tropical zodiac sign of Capricorn Dec. 2, 2019 around noon. The December Deal special opportunity.


SagittariusWas still warm a few weeks back. My neighbor was mowing his yard. He was wearing a Hawaiian shirt, board shorts, and flip-flops. I almost interrupted him to advise against a loud and cranky lawn mower while only wearing sandals, but then, if it were me? That’s what I would wear. Exactly. I might lose the shirt, depending on weather. I would also use an environmentally more friendly push mower, but again, I’m not my neighbor, and I — rather purposefully — have no lawn to mow. I leave that to the maintenance guy.

But the neighbor, he’s retired military, in flip-flops and a Hawaiian shirt? I would like to assume that is my influence. In part, it is the choice of shirts. Ever since I’ve been his neighbor, he’s gradually shifted to louder, floral-print shirts. Never totally in style so never totally out of style. I’m a good influence, right? With Sagittarius birthdays upon us all, and this horoscope commemorates my annual trip around the sun, I would look upon our perceived influences, like my former military, formerly formally uptight neighbor, dressed in board shorts, flip-flops, and a Hawaiian shirt, and from that? Happy birthday to ourselves, but we have to remember, Jupiter causes a certain amount of arrogance, and if we think that it is solely our Sagittarius influence that pervades?


CapricornIf it’s difficult, we shouldn’t be doing it. There’s a certain ease and grace that comes with Jupiter. Fun times, plus, Venus is in on the mix? There’s a special way this energy plays, and unwatched, this can be a problem. For starters, though, there’s something to look at: Capricorn and age. Our elders? Yes, the elder spokespersons. Teachers, guides, “our betters,” as I’ve heard them called. “Respected elder spokesperson.”
