Horoscopes starting 11/9/2017

Kings are earth’s gods; in vice their law’s their will;

And if Jove stray, who dares say Jove doth ill?

Pericles in Shakespeare’s Pericles, Prince of Tyre (1.1.103-4)

Horoscopes starting 11.9.2017


One author I liked, one of his first novels was so tightly plotted, he described what it was like. He had a giant flow chart, pieces of paper taped together, stretching around his office, where he would write, and those lines had intricate details where “this” tied to “that,” which then echoed back to a sub-plot in the first chapter, “there.” Extremely complex and tightly woven. In subsequent novels, although there is evidence of such work, it’s not nearly as difficult. The author himself has suggested he doesn’t outline like, not anymore. Too much work for too little reward.

As a Scorpio, this week unfolds with a myriad of allusions to previous events, then, there’s some foreshadowing for next week, and then, too, there’s that resolution to a small problem in the Scorpio sub-plot, leftover from the second chapter. Got all that?

You can endlessly complicate this, or you can just plow ahead. Personally looking at motion and relative motion? I’d suggest you just plow ahead. For the parts that you did outline? Yes, stick to the outlined plans. But for most of this? Ah, heck, just wing it like I do.

Follow plans that are in place, but you can make up stuff to fill in the parts you didn’t plan.

I had just listened to the play on tape, so that play and its [...]
