Like my own concoction and collection of legal terms — the fine print — I am continually amused that people have to be reminded of certain aspects of modern life. “If the safety seal is broken, do not use this product.” Sounds obvious, right? Sounds blindingly obvious, right? Here it is, middling degree of Sagittarius, most of the way through the second decade of the new millennium, and still, we have to be reminded about obvious items. Makes me wonder what happened and did all our technological advances really make us smarter? The world is at our fingertips via the web, and yet, we’re just as stupid as ever, seems to be the case.
Earlier, today, I was joking with a buddy, “Yeah, you’re raised in Texas, when someone says, ‘Watch me do this,’ first thing you do is duck.” My buddy had an addendum, “I watch out when I hear, ‘Here, hold my beer,’ because…”
These are warning signs, but this week’s Sagittarius success depends more on fleeting common sense rather than a warning label. Now?
“Watch me do this!”
A Leo buddy, his daughter, another Leo, that kid, when she was ten, maybe 12 years old? She had sign in her room, “Always pretend that there is an invisible tiara on your head.” That sign, that message? For what’s happening, even now?
Capricorn: Always pretend there’s an invisible tiara on your head.
