    This Cloten was a fool, an empty purse,
    There was no money in’t. Not Hercules
    Could have knock’d out his brains, for he had none.

Guiderius in Shakespeare's Cymbeline 4.2.115-

The Portable Mercury Retograde

Scorpio

It’s always a race to the bottom, and that’s what this might be about. Oh yeah, happy birthday, away. Thought I’d forget? Hardly. But the idea that it’s a “Race to the bottom” struck a good chord with me, and I watched, as a number of my Scorpio buddies started to pick back up that bad behavior. “It’s my birthday,” or “Mercury is Retrograde, my astrologer told me, so I can do this.” Yeah, not how this works, I mean, yes, it is your birthday time, and yes, Mercury is most heinously retrograde in your sign, but no, that’s not a valid excuse to slip back into a previous arrangement that did your Scorpio self no good. Celebrate? Yes. Indulge in your birthday? Yes. Use that as an excuse? Can’t say I didn’t try and warn you. Good luck.

Years and years of research, astrological, phenomenological, psychological? Years and years of applied astrofish.net research has a couple of easy guidelines for this kind of Mercury in Retrograde (in Scorpio, no less). Because of the relative motions, I found that a particular part of my ritual involves: coffee. Bad day today? Coffee. Good day today?

GLOU.
That would be ten days’ wonder at the least.
CLAR.
That’s a day longer than a wonder lasts.

    Shakespeare’s Henry 6 part 3 3.2.113-4

Ten days’ wonder? I’m guessing at a little less than seven days yet. Steals and deals are available in the Halloween “boo-tique,” at astrofish.net/shop.

Scorpio

ScorpioWith this current Mercury Retrograde patten in full swing? Happy Halloween, happy Scorpio birthday, all of that, but with this pattern in full effect by now?

“Don’t try to out-stupid me.”

It is a challenge, issued to — maybe from — but more likely to Scorpio.

“Don’t try to out-stupid me.”

Best example I can think of? Late in the afternoon, after fishing most of the day on the bay, I was having some luck using thin little pieces of bait on sharp hooks, and I was getting tired of reeling in fish. Not too tired to quit, even though, well, what I did was wind up for a long cast against a far shore, not paying attention to where the hook was, and I managed to snag my shorts and from there, the hook and its bard were buried in the flesh on the back of my leg. Good to know I had a recent tetanus shot. When I say?

“Don’t try to out-stupid me.”

It’s a clear example of me, Mercury, and whatever else doing something stupid, like hooking myself with a sharp hook. Fortunately, my fish pliers have a cutting spot, and I could merely cut the eye off the hook and push it through rather than pulling it out. Still, I hooked myself but good. Happy Halloween, happy birthday and please, don’t try to out-stupid me.

Get any two Shakespeare Scholars together and there will be a myriad of divergent opinions. Working from the exact same text, compare what the emphasis, authorship, what conclusions are drawn from the exact same piece of text. Like they were in different worlds. Best example? The quote I started with? One computer analysis proves that it was written all by Shakespeare and another suggested that the same play wasn’t written by “Shakespeare” at all. As far as applying this little “fact” to this week’s Sagittarius?

My stronger guilt defeats my strong intent,
And, like a man to double business bound,
I stand in pause where I shall first begin,
And both neglect

Happy “almost Halloween” time. Yippee-skippy.

The Scorpion

While the Sun enters the tropical zodiac sign of Scorpio on the 23rd, it’s not until we get this new moon on the 27 that we get the real “start” of Scorpio. We’re close, but we’re not there yet. However, that is a big turning point, more like, folks wake up on the morning of the 28th, “Hey! What are we doing for Halloween? Lets have a party!”

Cool, in a way, and uncool, in that there’s three-four days that get wasted, not being used for preparing, and anyone ever notice that the candy offerings get less generous towards the big night? Suddenly, all that “inner planet” turmoil is fun and games, good times and parties. It wasn’t a light switch, other than in a cosmic sense, and the new moon, in Scorpio, is a significant transition point — which means? It’s time to move forward with more than one set of plans. Scorpios do tend to get single-minded about a single task, or project, or goal; and with this current energy? Splitting up that drive and launching more than idea into the void is what works best. Try launching three, then, we’ll revisit in a few days and see which one sticks.

The Archer

Picture from a day care place; pumpkin, Halloween art, and a sign, “It’s harvest time.” Might be a bit unfortunate, right under the name of the day care place. True story. Wished I had that picture. It’s a typical Sagittarius blunder, at this time, The wicked fast approach of the high holidays, Scorpio earnestly cooking along. It’s harvest time, just maybe, though, think about the picture placement. or banner.
