- O ye gods!
Render me worthy of this noble wife!
Brutus in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar 2.1.303

Taurus:Always wondered a little about that, how the wives in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar were so important. One would hope that this would be a reflection on the timbre of the times, but I’m unsure if there’s much truth to that. The Elizabethan setting was notoriously sexist and bigoted. No judgement, mere observation. However, it takes strong players — like wives — to get the job done. It’s unfortunate, but in that play? Strong wives get subsumed by the plot. Just how the story goes.
So the noble wives? Doesn’t go well for them. As I was plotting the Taurus stars? I saw strong characters, unlike that play, I saw strong characters and people listening to those strong characters. Strong, Taurus players.
Gemini:There’s a practice, derived from a certain spiritual pursuit, that serves me well. In this next week, especially now? This kind of practice would serve Gemini well, too. I was driving, in notorious rush-hour-like traffic. Too far for me to walk, which is in keeping with my tendencies, so hop in car. Traffic backed-up. For, apparently, no reason. If there was a spectacular wreck, or malfunctioning traffic signal, sure, I could get it. Nothing. Just stop-and-go crap.
