Horoscopes for 6.27.2019

I’ll show thee the best springs; I’ll pluck thee berries;
I’ll fish for thee, and get thee wood enough.
A plague upon the tyrant that I serve!
I’ll bear him no more sticks, but follow thee,
Thou wondrous man.

    Caliban in Shakespeare’s The Tempest 2.2.77-81

All for a spot of wine. A dram of wine.

Cancer

The Crab - the Moonchild
Yeah, the above passage from Shakespeare’s The Tempest is fun, usually easy to do, too, as the “monster” (Caliban) has never tasted wine before a couple of old drunken sailors introduce it. Fun stuff. Caliban will do anything for some more, as the alcohol relieves the pain and burdens of living — and serving — in the wilderness with the main wizard, Prospero. Reminds me of an updated version, an expression attributed to Golden Age science fiction, “One man’s magic is another man’s technology.” I should offer points for that correct quote and attribution, but I know I’ve got in Pink Cake someplace. I think. Instead of spending too much time fact-checking, or trying to locate a source for a quote, let’s look at a little bigger image here, in the sign of the Moon Child, as there’s a message within Caliban’s statements, wherein he prostrates himself in front of some otherworldly creature, begging for more. Couple of old drunk sailors, who, by the wizard’s magic, arrive intact and freshened up, despite the appearance of calamity at sea. Too much? Watch for the “I’ll do anything for,” well, in Caliban’s example, it was merely cheap wine. Happy Birthday!

The Leo

The Leo
Next few days, I was searching for an apt way to describe what benefits The Leo best, and all I could think about was “potluck.” One of those social deals where everyone brings some kind of dish? Party, gathering, social event, fundraiser, any number of excuses for a group of like-minded individuals to get together to break bread, share a community meal, and the way it works? Everyone brings a dish or platter of food. Or food-like substances. When I’m invited, I just stop by the grocery store and get a pre-packaged bag or tray of something, maybe a sheet cake. However, for The Leo and this week?

Horoscopes for 6.20.2019

    Marriage, uncle? Alas, my years are young;
    And fitter is my study and my books
    Than wanton dalliance with a paramour.

1 Henry VI 5.7.20-222

He’d rather study than pursue romance. Huh. The suggestion, albeit good, seems atypical.

Horoscopes for 6.20.2019

Cancer

The Crab - the Moonchild
Fast. Slow. Hot, cold, make up your mind! “Would you make up your damn mind?” All I got is a definite maybe. Mars is funny like that, especially, on the heels of the opposition with Pluto then almost playing tag with Mercury. Just causes a certain amount of confusion as to what tempo this is supposed to be at.

This is 4/4 beat, right? Basic thump-thump-thump-thump, correct? Not hard to get. Boom-chicka-boom-chicka. Repeat as need be. Loop it. Basic thudding of the bass line to give it some rhythm, right? Sure. Fast. No, slow it down. No, speed it up. There is no even tempo at the moment. Those of us who are rhythmically challenged, yes, at least I know that I won’t be setting the beat, the pace, but the Cancer Moon Children will think they can set the pace. Only, it’s not fast enough, no, wait, too fast, slow it down, no speed it up. This is the function of Mr. Mars, and he’s on his way out, but he ain’t left yet. Fast. Slow.

Here, you drive (obviously I’m doing it wrong — but I’m not a Cancer).

The Leo

What I heard, and I’ll repeat is as the expression is useful, “You are messing with powers beyond your ken.” No Leo, and certainly not The Leo wants to hear that type of dire warning, and yet, there it is. Until further notice, or, at least another couple of weeks? No. Do not mess with it. I know, it would be fun to tweak it a little see what happens. No. Why?

Gemini

Gemini
We make plans, we have goals, and then we have ideas. Wait, Gemini, remember, we have lots of ideas, all the time! We are Gemini! Still, those goals need some strategic action. Best if we plot a Gemini course, with amendable but specific steps.

Processes.

Goals, destinations, specific action to make that goal happen, because, oh birthday one! A goal, with no plan, is just a wish. Birthday time. Plan accordingly. Good to have goals, but what need are concrete steps to achieve those goals.

Cancer

One of the great joys about my work? I can follow any thread of thought, and watch. I can watch it unravel a garment, simply pull on and tearing at a single thread of a thought, toying, teasing, ultimately, forcing what’s under it to be revealed. With that single thread of a thought?
