"Adieu, valour! Rust, rapier! Be still, drum! For you manager is in love; yea, he loveth."
Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost [I.ii.96]
In 1602, during a rebellious year, the Earl of Essex requested that (Shakespeare's) Lord Chamberlain's Men perform the older play, Richard II, a play with political overtones.
Sagittarius: Happy birthday to all those most excellent November Sagittarius types. Just about the best, huh?
Mars is fast approaching a square with Uranus. Not bad, just a little extra layer of tension. While I like tension on a fishing reel, and I like tension when it involves the plot, what I don't like, and what none of us Sagittarius likes, is tension that's not welcome and appears suddenly.
Weird how that works. This week. Could be from any number of different areas. How you deal with it? That's the secret to success. The way I see it unfolding, we have family plans for T-Day. At the last minute, a whole group of cousins, distant relatives, friends and neighbors all show up.
That kind of tension. I'll do my magic act with the loaves and fishes, but after that? How do we fit all these people around the single dining room table that was already too full?
Here's the Sagittarius trick and answer to the Mars induced tension: card tables and folding chairs. There's a definite "retro" feeling to this action, yet it's also an effective way to deal with the tension caused by Mars (and maybe Uranus). Be prepared to add room for extra guests. Family, friends, enemies. All of them. It's a simple gesture, go to the closet and start unloading, and unfolding, a few extra place settings.
Capricorn: Maybe a year ago? Maybe not quite that long? I don't recall the exact details. Road trip, I know it was a business trip. Of that I'm sure. I bought shirt, a floral print, brightly colored shirt. To some, it would a be a Hawaiian shirt. To me? It was inexpensive outerwear from nationally recognized discount chain store. Cheap. Off the deeply discounted price. Might've been two or three dollars, I don't recall. I used it all last summer, repeatedly.
