As the moon fills out, life gets better and better. The problem, and as a Sagittarius myself, I feel this just as much if not more so than others, is the pesky Mercury. Getting closer and closer to Jupiter, and that ramps up the Sagittarius “play” function. Or talk-feature, or, with some of us? The “I can’t shut up and listen” aspect of who we are. This is a reminder, as much for myself as for any other delicate Sagittarius, shut up. Listen.

Learn to listen, again. Yes, holidays, yes, someone wants us to make a speech, and guess what? Short, declarative sentences, keeping the distance from the beginning to the end as short as possible? That works best. Short, concise, to the point, and not a lot of my typical excessive verbiage, which, frankly, does look and sound pretty to my ears, but avails us naught. Mercury is the “play” function, the “talk” button, but having a platform from which to speak? That doesn’t mean this is a good time to take advantage of that. Nothing serves us better than a quick, short, “Thank you, thank you very much.” All that is required.

Happy Birthday!

Like this week’s opening quote: one line. All that is required.

There was a time when the allure of a rare, hopefully esoteric, text was quite powerful. Dusty, old books with mountains of information and archaic styled language, weird punctuation, phrases that don’t parse well to a modern ear? That kind of book. Usually, too, some of these books — a mountain of such texts — dusty tomes from forgotten times when bookbinding was an art? There is a certain aroma. I adore old books, even to this day.

    My lord, I rescued her;
    Her Highness is in safety, fear you not.
    But on, my liege, for very little pains
    Will bring this labor to an happy end.

The Bastard in Shakesperare’s King John (III.ii.7-10)

Ever consider the lines in a parking lot? Especially one of those big lots, usually attached to a large retail establishment? The lines and arrows all point this way and that, and the lines are guidelines. One is supposed to park within the lines. Doesn’t mean it happens. Frequently, we used to pull through one place, and with a fishing boat in tow? The easily takes two spots. One buddy he will occupy at least four spots, truck pulling a boat, but he is considerate: park way far away from the front door. He’s not taking up spaces that other folks could be using, that’s for sure. So the lines in the parking lots of life, think of them, sure, hard to ignore, and places marked out, sure, but unless there are curbs and parking bumps? All those stripes and lines, arrows and such? More like suggested and proscribed rather than hard and fast. Sure, we all try to park within the lines, but when there’s some jerk taking up two spaces, we just grumble then adjust as need be. Personally, given the current times, and Jupiter in Sag? I would think about parking at the extremity of the parking lot of life right now. Easier to walk an extra 50 meters and not worry about door dings. The parking lot lines are just suggested, not always accurate, despite what the signs suggest. Suggested guidelines — that’s all — suggested.

Capricorn

In analysis, in retrospect, I realized I was over-thinking a solution. I built an answer to a problem, and the answer to the problem was far more complicated than it needed to be. Analyzing my first, second, and then third solution to fix that problem? Way more complicated than it needed to be. Follow my path, though, in this case, why I’m called a guide? Follow my path.

Guilt. Guilt is magical. While guilt may — indeed — be magical, there is no room for it at this time. Holidays, faulty planet array, that Mercury thing, no room for guilt. Looking at the Sagittarius astrology chart, I quickly arrived at that conclusion.

Then, I realized, I was struggling with a problem for client, just an answer to a question, and what happened? I got to over-thinking the answer. That simple. Over-thinking the question, its answer, and the correct source of action. Sagittarius is all about action, too. Correct action, most correct action, and see what happens. Guilt may have many magical attribution, but without over-thinking this? No time for it, not this holiday season. The recent events, then, what’s on the next’s week horizon for Sagittarius, that etches a pathway that might be laden with that sense of guilt. No room, no time. Simple solution, more as a reminder to myself than anything else? Don’t be over-thinking this.

Capricorn

This is an amusing reminder, to myself, as much as it to Capricorn. It has to do with immediate reactions to a situation. That first, instinctual image? That idea of “different” with its friend, “change” also implied? No one likes change. No one likes “different” when it feels like it is not of our own (Capricorn) making. Doing.

    Tut, tut, my lord, we will not stand to prate;
    Talkers are no good doers. Be assur’d;
    We go to use our hands, and not our tongues.

What I recall about the past says more about what I think about the present, than what has passed. Happy birthday, Sagittarius? Sure. The past, personal history in whatever form it might take? That is a slippery slope. Between the Venus not retrograde and the Mercury just getting geared up and moving backwards, there’s a hint, an echo, a repetitive memory that is calling. But what we recall doesn’t always have to do with the past, it is more a reflection about what we think about the present.

The retrogrades serves as a mirror to memories, real — or imagined. The memories, real or imagined, are about the stories we tell ourselves now. While a moment’s reverie can be illustrative and constructive, more than a blink of an eye, more than a moment’s beat or two? That’s too much time spent reliving past occurrences. What our Sagittaerius selves choose to remember? Says more about our current situations rather than what really went on the good, old days. Or, as I have come to refer to a certain epoch in my personal history? “The bad old days.” What we recall about the past says more about our present than is does about what has passed.

“Kramer, this looks like a peyote button — figures.” No. It does not figure. I will call a foul on that one. It is a bead — nothing more. It does not remotely resemble a ‘peyote button,’ or any other kind of mind-altering substance. “Mescaline, I know it!” No. It’s a wooden bead, from whence, I know not, and it is still sitting in a small dish, looks kind of like an ashtray, got some change, a couple of crystals, a good luck token, a single I-Ching coin, just the usual crap.

    PAR.:I love not many words.(exit)
    LORD. DUM.:No more than a fish loves water.

From Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well (III.vi.26-7)

Mars “squares” Jupiter, Mercury turns retrograde, Venus turns direct, and a Happy Scorpio Birthday!

Mercury’s retrograde pattern starts Nov. 17, at 13 (and a half) of Sagittarius and slides back to a resting point at 27 Scorpio, December 5, 2018. Usual caveats apply.

Having been on both sides of this kind of energy, I can help my Scorpio birthday friends. I watched as a friend carried anger like shield to protect her. Righteous indignation is a luxury and for a Scorpio? This isn’t a good week for that holy cross and mighty sword of anger with which you slay demons and devils who have done thy Scorpio self so very, very wrong. No doubt this anger is justified. No doubt you were wronged. No doubt someone — not me — but someone crossed that line and should feel the heavy hand of Scorpio wrath. Still, think, birthday, Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, all of that. No need to launch into an attack, which, here’s a birthday promise for Scorpio, no need to launch an attack that you will have to fight yourself, when , if you’ll just put the petty difference aside?

In good time, not soon enough, but in good time?

That justice will be served, and here’s the funner part: Scorpio won’t have to do any of the work. Put away the flaming sword and holy cross of Scorpio martyrdom, for now.

Sagittarius

Is it a choice? Or is is a decision? Simple question. Every morning when I wake, I get a chance to make a decision. It’s a choice, for me, as I choose to be happy. Yes, the planets are applying an undue amount of pressure but that just means there’s something cooking up in the astrological pressure cooker of Sagittarius, and it will pop out a little later. In the morning, when I wake up, I have a choice. While it looks like a choice, it really is a decision. What’s with the questions and definitions?
