"And earthly power doth then show likest God's
When mercy seasons justice."
Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice [IV.i.192-3]
Historically, the Merchant of Venice was only performed twice in the 17th century, and both times? For King James I, at the Whitehall Palace, in 1605.
Uranus bumps into Aries, just a taste, just a flavor, not really making that much of a splash.
Gemini: Happy Birthday to that one special Gemini! Before we get any more freaky about this, let me point out a single point: Aquarius is an Air Sign. Like Gemini. All right, things are going to get mighty weird. Soon. Now. Even in the last few minutes, it's gotten a little more strange.
As a good Gemini, though, strange isn't really so bad. This sets up a period of time, the last astrological theory I worked with suggested this is the tone for the next year or so, and that's what we're looking at. It's more like a flavor instead of a series of events. More like a smoky allure of BBQ with a hidden hint of the flavor of Mesquite. Less a spicy hot, more like the smoked sultry sweetness of the Chipotle Sauces.
So there's a weirdness quotient that gets turned up a notch , but it's not, like, this is really weird. Just sort of weird. Getting weirder, but is that so bad for a Gemini? The symbolism is one that suggests there's a chance for change, in a very positive direction, around the corner. Now, even. Take advantage of the strange events, but remember, this is more like flavor than anything else.
Cancer: In the desert mountains, to the north and west of Albuquerque and Santa Fe, there's a little Benedictine Monastery. It was originally built in the sixties and seventies by three monks from NYC.
Check it out, the monks do have a web site. Of course they do. This is a modern age. The ironic part about the place? It's open for visitors and overnight guests. No, that's no ironic. However, there is no electricity or phones. That is ironic -- they do have a web page.
