“Go, charge my goblins that they grind their joints
With dry convulsions, shorten up their sinews
With aged cramps, and more pinch-spotted make them
Than pard or cat o’mountain.”

Prospero in Shakespeare’s The Tempest (IV.i.258-61)

Question came up, “Why do modern toasters have a setting that will burn the snot out of your bread? Not toasted, burnt, maybe even cause a fire. Why?” Questions, rather than answers, for the modern world? It’s about “Free Will,” and in an oblique musical reference, “Freedom of Choice.” Not sure the last note carries, as it is a bit obtuse, possibly dated. Back to the original question, though, why can a modern toaster cause permanent damage to its toast? It’s about that free will we’re all gifted with, and we get to choose, like life, we get to choose which setting we’re going to use. Mars, Pluto/Saturn and the Moon? Each one pushes the Cancer’s buttons to “high,” or “dark,” or whatever is over the top for the personal toaster device. There is always freedom of choice, and the easiest way to understand this is to set that toaster — or whatever — to about half. Medium. On a scale of one to ten? Five. Right in the middle. Try that, first. Cranking it over to “High,” or dry, or whatever the setting is on the the — whatever — it is? Shooting off the max, right at the start? Liable to burn the toast, or whatever is being toasted.

“The astrologer does precision guesswork based on questionable data supplied by dubious sources.” In a single statement, that about sums up my career as a reader. Might also adequately cover several decades of horoscopes, as that conveys a certain image, too. I like the term “Precision guesswork,” as that gets it across in a plain, understandable term. The guess, at this moment, is that The Leo is dealing with Mars-inspired issues. Mars in Retrograde-inspired issues. Precision guesswork is called for…

For immediate release

The way I learned it, a press release, in proper format, started with the headline, “For Immediate Release,” followed by the pitch. At least two copy writers I’ve known claimed that their press releases were so well crafted that they were frequently published, back when newspapers were more common, those press releases were often published verbatim, as news.

A press release was supposed to answer the questions, Who, What, Why, and When?

So, as a novelty item, getting ready for next holiday celebrations? Horoscopes that start out with: For Immediate Release

For Immediate ReleaseMars in Retrograde — The typical Cancer personality is super easy for me to get along with, once I have a basic understanding that I am dealing with a typical Cancer Moon Child energy. That applies to Rising Sign, Moon Sign, Sun Sign, or even just a satellite in a natal chart that represents similar energies. Typically, this is a “We get along with anyone” type of sign, until, Mars goes Retrograde, and degrades certain characteristics that I find charming. Because I am aware of the current state of affairs, I get less worked up, and I’ve learned — through years of applied study — to dismiss certain snubs. Borrowing a Libra axiom, “Some do, some don’t, who’s next?”

Happy birthday?

For Immediate ReleaseMars in Retrograde as it aspects The Leo planets, and now, Mars in aspect, and given this retrograde motion? This affects the boss, the coworkers, the secretary, the minions, or, as best described, “Those who work around, near, above or below you.” The typical short-term affect is it looks they have all been struck with the dumb stick. “Struck with the dumb stick? Seriously? Looks like they all ran into a forest of those dumb sticks!” Yes, and hit everyone of them.
