Horoscopes for 5.2.2019

“The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

Gertrude in Shakespeare’s
The Tragedy of Hamlet (3.2.166)

Way I hear it most often, directed at me? “Methinks the lady doth protest too much.” Roll of the eyes. I tend to not correct misquotes like that. Happy Taurus birthday, either way.

Taurus
There’s an ongoing communication thing that is important. Less about what you’re communicating, and more about how. What I try to do, in person, I try to be as precise and concise as possible. Doesn’t always work out that way, but I try. Make a concerted effort towards that goal, concise and brief. So I do tend to be a little long-winded at times, and no person in my line of work got here because we didn’t like being an occasional story-teller, but that’s not what this is about. Not so much what you’re saying, but how you’re saying it. That’s the birthday message during this next few days. For Taurus. Not what, but how. Listen to your volume, if this is a verbal delivery. Read over the message, if it is textual. Look at the image, and make sure you got it framed and filtered right before you post it. It’s less about the content, although, yes, content is important, but more important? How you say it. This next few days, think stylized text message, or a sentence that is all emoticons, whatever. Happy face — smily face — unicorn, &c.

Gemini

More! Better! Faster! Pick one. Can’t, won’t do all three, but there is the drive to accomplish it all. It’s a Gemini thing, and as such, yeah, or, better yet, “Yea verily,” there is that drive to get it all done in hurry. More. Better. Faster. Pick one. “But I want all three!” Sure you do. Plus, think about it, I’ll suggest you, as a Gemini, you deserve all three. This week, even. but it might not happen. The deal is?

    Now ’tis the spring, and weeds are shallow-rooted;
    Suffer them now, and they’ll o’ergrow the garden,
    And choke the herbs for want of husbandry.

The Queen in Shakespeare’s
King Henry 6th, Part 2 III.i.31-3

The Bull


The play the introductory quote is drawn from? Most famous for its “Kill all the lawyers” line. Useless trivia. However, this week’s introductory line resonated so much stronger, about it being the spring, and it was the best time to pull the weeds from the garden. Get the invasive plants when they are shallow-rooted. It’s spring and, for me, a little late to be worrying about gardens and such. As a metaphor, though, it really struck a musical chord, being both Shakespeare — his purported birthday was jus the other day — and being poetical. As a Taurus, there is a little action you can take now, preventative measures, a form of weeding the garden, so to speak. Why this resonated. Taurus is an Earth Sign, right? There’s a strong, what your garden is might vary, but there’s strong urge to “Nip that sucker in the bud,” to borrow another garden image. So happy Taurus birthday, and realize, it’s a good time to nip that sucker in the bud, or, as I suggested, “and the weeds are shallow-rooted” now.

Gemini

Scene from the streets of Austin, Texas? I was looking in the rear view mirror, well, first I was watching as a person, posing as homeless, worked a particular street corner. He said something to the first truck in line, guy rolled down the window and gave the panhandler some cash. Second car at the light, just ahead of me, the driver of that car handed over some cash. I kept my window up, conversing on the phone’s headset, smiled, and nodded “No.” Related to nothing, I believe in charity, but street corners in Austin are not my favored place. I watched, though, commenting that the panhandler had a good line, as the two cars in front of me gave him cash. Gemini — always admire a proficient salesman, no matter what he’s selling. It’s a Gemini thing, right? I watched as he went to the car that pulled in behind me.

    There be many Caesars,
    Ere such another Julius. Britain’s a world
    By itself, and we will nothing pay

    For wearing our own noses.

Cloten in Shakespeare’s
Cymbeline III.i.11-4

The sun moves into the Tropical Zodiac sign of Taurus on April 20, 2019, around 2:55 AM (Central), but, as always your mileage might vary.

Taurus

Taurus
As the Sun enters Taurus, the Sun aligns with Uranus, briefly. The question I thought of, and this applies now, is “brilliance” hereditary? Does it run in families, or is there some kind of genetic fluke that makes this possible? The idea of brilliance came, because, as this alignment occurs, there will great flashes of insight. Depth, understanding, like a certain kind of brilliance. Did this mental acuity, did this perception of intellectual horsepower, did this understanding of the human psyche exist all along? Was it inherited? Or was this a predisposition of the planets, enforced by this kind of an alignment, something that adds spark to an otherwise dull mind, all of a sudden-like? Which is it? Who knows. The brilliance is triggered, by this week’s “Stars in Taurus,” and likewise? Taurus will be a star. With Uranus, especially, the correct application of this new-found “brilliance” is to not fritter and fret from whence it came, no, grab that insight and move forward. What steps, what path, what new — and uncharted — route beckons for Taurus? With this week’s stars, you can see how to make this work, and for the one? Happy birthday, baby!

Gemini

“Strange things are a-foot at the Circle K,” a rather dated pop-culture reference. Explains much, though, to Gemini. Dated pop-culture reference that is an antecedent towards much of what is happening now? Yes, we’ve seen this before. “Mercury isn’t retrograde, is it?” No, that is not the issue. There’s an arcane, get get used to it, strange energy loose this week, and maybe next week, and we will see this again. Best way to approach the energies, for that Gemini, now that we know, “Strange things are afoot at the Circle K?”
