Horoscopes for 2.7.2019

The Water Bearer

All the oddities of current events made me pause and reconsider. One of my first years in this business, a harsh February day in South Texas? I found myself wandering the streets of a certain coastal town, and I didn’t have on a shirt. One in hand, and I was merely sightseeing, playing tourist, or, as some belief systems would call it, “Doing a walk-about.”

Early February, clear, warm, gentle zephyrs stir the moist air, distant breakers rolling in on the beaches. Laconic town, a month or more ahead of the usual spring break crush and ensuing madness. Port town. The Xmas months north of that place, cold weather, harsh winter winds, the usual, but south? Warm winds blowing and subtropical appeal — cowboys with surfboards. Think last year they also had “Surfing with Santa,” but I’m not sure. What this is? A pleasant interlude in an otherwise unpleasant time. While it is certainly not bad for Aquarius, we have to understand why that is, just because, well, there are a number of other signs experiencing great discomfort at the moment. It’s not Aquarius, but not everyone gets that. Have a happy birthday!

The Fishes

There are easy ways to deal with this type of week. A strong, conservative approach is what it takes. Maybe “strong” is the wrong word. But conservative approach is best as it serves the Pisces best in the bigger picture. Now isn’t the time for the outlandish, over-the-top, or even uncharacteristically hyperbolic statements. Statements?

Horoscopes for 1.31.2019

    Thy labour rather to be feared than loved,
    To satisfy thy lust in either part,
    Here am I come, and with me have I brought
    Exceeding store of treasure, pearl, and coin.

King John in Shakespeare’s Edward III III.iii.64-7

Technically, there is much academic discussion about whether or not the play, Edward III is either a Shakespeare play or pure Shakespeare play — but the quote fit with some of the stars, and therefore? I call it good enough. Close enough.

At first this was going to be about a T-Shirt I saw, but then, I realized the message wouldn’t convert across a broad spectrum of Aquarius. One or two, maybe, would not only understand but appreciate the humor. Therein is the problem, though, with this week’s energy. It’s private, and not broad-based at all. While the intricate nature of the Aquarius mind understands this, once we’re out of the Aquarius comfort zone, essentially the single Aquarius mind itself, once we all leave that headspace?

Yeah, the jokes don’t go over, no one gets the humor, and strained metaphors are lost. The rest of the world, the rest of the non-Aquarius world? They just don’t “get it,” and since I’m not Aquarius myself, I don’t “get it,” either.

Which is the problem. No easy answers except, perhaps to laugh amongst yourself. Surely there is another birthday person close at hand, and you two can share in the merriment. The rest of us? Yeah, a lot of the rest of the other signs, the other energies as depicted by the arrows and symbols? Yeah, a lot, maybe most, if not all? Most of us just don’t see what you find so funny. Well, except for me, I get it, but only part way, and that’s only because I was looking at your stars and I understand that much.

Pisces

Combine disparate elements. Simply put? Take two items that don’t belong next to each other, and put them together. The obvious example? Peanut butter and chocolate. I realize that some of the readers of this web page have an allergy to some stuff, like maybe peanuts, but that’s merely an example. Me? I’m not a fan of chocolate, but again, this is merely an example. Disparate items that don’t usually belong next to each other. Disparate times?

    Sweet now, silence!
    Juno and Ceres whisper seriously;
    There’s something else to do. Hush and be mute,
    Or else our spell is marr’d.

Prospero in Shakespeare’s The Tempest 4.1.123-6

I found this great quote, from the so-called founder of a local chain. Thought it was great. The problem being, when looking, either on the web, or in other stores, I could find no corroborating evidence that it was an actual sentiment from the chain’s namesake. Great idea, excellent inspirational quote, no supporting documentation — whatsoever. I don’t require much, innuendo, hearsay, suggestive titles, hints, and hunches, yes, any of that would work, in this situation. Alas? I got nothing. No other evidence besides a plain piece of paper from — looks like an ink jet printer — with no way to know if it is real — or not real at all. Kind of what I was thinking about, as I’m still trying to get some kind of corroboration, supporting evidence in one form, or another, I don’t much care, but I need to see something, in print, that supports my hunch. Feeling. It’s a feeling, and it felt like it could be true, but then, it also — lack of any evidential support — feels like it might not be true. The total lack of evidence? Kind of supports my theory that it was a made-up quote. Not that I would ever let that get in the way, either. Wasn’t it Shakespeare who said, “Trust not the world wide web?” Happy Aquarius birthday, but check out the evidence before jumping on it.

Pisces

Goals, desire, directions. Wish I was better at that myself, but I’m not Pisces. This is momentary time when we stop, pause, think, and consider. Goals, desire, directions. So the first question is, “What are your Pisces goals?” Second question, kind of obvious, I guess, I make this easy, right? Second question is, “How do your Pisces desires align with those goals?” Finally, there’s the third question, but I think you can easily see this one headed your way, right?
