I Believe!

Ask the Independent, why so many Millennials read horoscopes?

I Believe!

Science or not, makes as much sense as anything else, right? More sense, most days.

Containers https://astrofish.net/blog/containers/ https://astrofish.net/blog/containers/#respond Fri, 18 May 2018 20:40:00 +0000 https://astrofish.net/blog/?p=8948 Containers

I like to think of astrology in terms of discrete containers, like, each sign represents a certain location, to me. Taurus is a container, and the usual Venus and Venus-like energies represent what occurs in and around that Taurus container.

More like magic, or alchemy, or better yet, like a special effects kind of appearance. The container, let’s say, it’s up and coming Gemini, then the stuff brewing inside, a reaction that involves much smoke, with an eerie fog pouring over the edges of the container? Smoke on the water? Sure. That’s what is stirring in the Gemini container. Where it takes place.

12 Containers

Each container corresponds to a sign. Then a house, then a planet, then an over-arching energy, named for the sign combining those elements. Flavor, house, sign, planet, a container for the energy.

Worked in my head, just can’t wrestle it to the page, yet.

Survivor Patch https://astrofish.net/blog/survivor-patch/ https://astrofish.net/blog/survivor-patch/#respond Fri, 18 May 2018 10:20:00 +0000 https://astrofish.net/blog/?p=8994 BexarCountyLine.com

Survivor Patch

Simple image, says it all, Survivor Patch. Available online, link below. Struck my fancy. Hits me in that sweet spot where it was poignant, offensive, and lucid. Kind of says it all.

There are days, and that’s what we feel like.

That patch is on a buddy’s ammo thing. Bag. I believe bullets came in the container, but now? I use that for a fishing gear. Plainly visible is one of my fishing scarfs, a stretchy tube I tend to wear around my neck, keep it from getting too sunburnt. Also useful as headwear, and hair-tie. Small, folding knife I can operate with one hand, and is disposable, as in, if the knife gets washed overboard, I’m not diving in to save it. Boat camera and phone bag are also in the case.

Just ordinary fishing gear, the support stuff.

Lipstick, got “lipstick” in the bag, too. It’s not really lipstick, but that’s what I call it, Life Guard Approved lip balm with sunscreen.

Clearly a case of Leaky Memory, as here’s the quote:

“If a writer has to rob his mother, he will not hesitate. The Ode to a Grecian Urn is worth any number of little old ladies.”

Xmas Album https://astrofish.net/blog/xmas-album/ https://astrofish.net/blog/xmas-album/#respond Wed, 16 May 2018 10:20:00 +0000 https://astrofish.net/blog/?p=8983 astrofish.blog

Xmas Album

ZZ Top, same three guys, same three chords, decades of consistently making music. Seeing them live, again, kind of a hopeful item on my list of goals.

Pretty sure I saw one of their fuzzy guitars tour, but times — memories — are fuzzy, too. Non-fuzzy Virgo girlfriend.

Think they have second release of greatest hits, or five albums, or some similar, and while I can’t seem to locate it, I had a link based on a purchase, something like their five greatest albums, or first five, as a bundle deal, cf., Aries.

From some novel in the last month, not sure which source, but it was memorable reference to a typical musical group’s timeline. First album, second album, double-live, third experimental, greatest hits, concept album, then an Xmas Album.

Xmas Album

I used to pull together an Xmas Album Playlist each year. Have to include Cheech and Chong’s Santa Claus and his Old Lady, Robert Earl Keen’s Merry Christmas from the Family, and various other cuts. One year, I think it was from the band, Nashville Pussy, a song called Lazy Jesus. Thrilled a number of close friends with irreverent humor.

L.A. Guns had a Run Rudolph Run version, in hair-metal style. Run DMC has similar fare.

That was a good Xmas Album. However, in this context, what I was looking for wasn’t just music, but my horoscopic-equivalent of an Xmas Album.

What would that look like?


Santa Claus and His Old Lady – Single – Cheech & Chong

Lazy Jesus (Live) – Nashville Pussy


Xmas Album

Flip some of that idea on its head? Another favorite musician — Jimmy Buffett — he has several Christmas Albums, owing in part to his Capricorn birthday, Dec. 25. Also owing, no doubt, to his large oeuvre.

Think I have both those. Fun, in season, and it’s always beach season where I am. Or mostly.

The idea of an Xmas Album is borne out of reusing greatest hits, and having an inexpensive gift item available at Xmas time.



Xmas Album

For years, I’ve threatened to pull together a greatest hits of my horoscopes. There was about a cat snoring, cf., Cancer, and that horoscope was emblazoned across the wires, and into history, when I was told how someone printed it out stuck it up in her cube at work, the poetry of the words so moved her.

Greatest hits.

Or an Xmas Album, and what does that look like? What are greatest hits? According to the great Southern writer, Faulkner, a writer must be willing to kill his own children — as a metaphor.

Can’t find the quote; thought I had it on hand.


“It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations.”

-Winston Churchill
