Reeling A Bit

Scorpio 5° (October 28)

 

The way I comb or cut my way through vegetables in the kitchen is pretty much the same way that I write and edit, a dual ongoing process that expresses my commuicative discourse. That was something I read that I wrote on a note card. I’m not really sure how important it actually is. I also wrote something else on the back I can make out the words Hephaestus and also Jupiter. But when am I not actually writing about the gods I feel as if I always am. I’m sure that made no sense. It’s nearly four in the afternoon and I’ve been up pretty much since midnight. My sleep patterns have really never been so out of whack I don’t believe, but it’s not as if that makes no sense. I was finishing up this book sample process and I’m happy to say we handed it all in today, a few days earlier than scheduled. I’m hopeful but I’m also trepidatious. I’ve been here before, putting my head on the chopping block of potential rejection. I’m not like some people who can throw up a whole bunch of images they stole out of old books and write a little something about how keen and I have, and have the world care to read about it. I have earned every one of our hundreds and hundreds of thousands of readers. Now is about finding them and activating all the myriad projects we have underway. It should be fun, although it won’t be easy. But I’m also not interested in burdening myself, financially, in the process. One does need to spend money to make money, but it is important to get that ratio right. I think I have a natural way with the fiduciary, although I have never once, not for any epoch, been a materialist. I belong in Paris that much I know and I look very much forward to making it my home again, I really am. I think that can work. I’m going to try my hand at expanding the non-profit, to have it be what I think it can be, but I’m also willing at this point to let go of what’s not really working.

Well anyway: Bully for me for redoing the entire proposal and hunkering down to write this sample and getting it in before the end of October. I now have two solid months to focus on getting other things cooking while actually coming down off having been so around-the-clock working. I just got a flashback of Lox Around The Clock. I would have gone there with Laurie and Peter for sure. Funny how things pop into your head like that. I am now just going to type in some notes that are sitting on my desk so I can thrown them away. 1. Harnassing the power of…pin in sibling stuff…is utable-earth in section one? Link to arrested development. Need toe comedy. Madgalene. Moving through; things happen through her or she allows…to be an instrument. As a rule Virgo needs to be more as…the first woman, Pandora. They broke the mold. The All Meets The One is 0° Coming off chapter one four of radical optimism. Beatrice Bruteau. “Myth metaphyiscs and Mysteries”? S. is going to send me a copy of that old 1970s Times piece on the family with the restaurant in Pennsylvania. Gemini: They throw a curve ball (Eris and her apple) at you and before you field it they throw another one and another. Rapid fire gaslighting?  Reality Winner and sometimes a little confection? Is that what I said.

Oh I remember this was what Penny had to say about Ellie and Max. They need to understand themeaning of the word contract. I asked why is it they feel comfortable behaving this way toward our organiziation. Call out culture. Virtue signalling. Who’s eploiting whom here. Too established. Not sure what that meant. The sacred harlot bit is the antidote to the victimization energy of Kore’s rape story. The Spica says it’s up to her.

Being a Virgo, the virgin, metaphorically speaking means they don’t always quite get it. It’s not naivite necessarily, it’s a certain disconnect. When the character Mary Magdalene, a Virgo archetype, sang I don’t know how to love him she was being totally honest about herself, not Him (whoever he might be). Virgo women are notoriously attracted to the most high-impact figures on the planet. And they do orbit close to tony figures who have a sweeping sphere. Virgo begins August 23, the date of the festival of Vulcanalia, for the Roman god Vulcan (Greek: Hephaestus), the potter (mutable-earth!) god, and there is a theory that their is a planet Vulcan, the true ruler of Virgo, that orbits even closer to the Sun than Mercury. May we some day discover it because it would explain a lot about Virgo people, women in particular, securing themselves so extreme an inside track, becoming inside circle, and doing so quite unseen.

Should Virgo admit like Elizabeth I that she really wants to remain the virgin—single, autonomous and unsullied by any others’ needs except those to which she chooses to cater—despite all her protestations/lamentations on being alone or lonely. Because she does seem very much married to some phantom notion that relationships elude her. In mythology, a Virgin goddess is really one who doesn’t want to play a secondary sex role to males—Artemis, Hestia, Athena are not spinsters by default.

In our astrology, the sun sign of any individual represents the self one is becoming, her own hero’s journey, that to which she aspires in this life. The Virgo woman’s concept of happiness and fulfillment is therefore described in terms associated with her sign. That is to say that a life well-lived for the Virgo is one where she has made an indelible mark, a lasting contribution, and in her own way, has been of great service to others and the world at large. The trick of course being that she must find a way to serve her own purposes, foremost, in the process.

This Time Next Year

Scorpio 4° (October 27)

 

Today I managed to get thirteen pages plus of sample chapter at least printed out and into S.’s editor hands. Which feels pretty damn good. This year alone I have launched a new business, collaborated on a line of tee shirts, produced a series, produced a festival, wrote twelve astrology books, an entire book proposal (and now chapter), wrote my own one man show which I performed (probably the only reason I feel okay not doing a holiday show). I know I did a lot more than that, too, probably, but things are not jumping to mind. Why? Isn’t that enough? Jeez. I’m super excited about what is to come. I psyched that tonight is new Scorpio Moon, that is very exciting. I will go down stairs now and make a chicken. Sorry I didn’t mean to type that out loud I just realized its five o’clock and I haven’t gotten a start on dinner. I will be back soon in any case. Need to keep a running list of what to say to M.T. and what to add to that sample at the end to give it a lift.

Hi MT. So just beaming in to say good morning and I should have something to you today. As the sample chapter writing process goes (having a mind of its own) a few points and clarifications popped up that we need to throw into the proposal draft itself—mainly just semantic tweaks—so we are taking a little inventory this morning and when we send it all along later we will attach a slightly new Proposal along with the Sample.

Virgo girl to negotiate the world of would-be coupling. She often gets stuck in a sisterly role and her perspective on relationships can be overblown; meaning she might believe she’s in one when, in reality, she’s not. Not to suggest she’s delusional.***She can thus get stuck playing Wendy to any number of Peter Pans, or in any case, settling in to something of a den-mother role. Often, she enjoys a variety of bestie bonds with gay (again, is there a different word we have to use?) men.

There is an upshot to this signature dynamic in that she has the power to play patroness and to elevate her own status by helping others to achieve their own goals and dreams. (Mention Peggy Guggenheim?). She thus makes a great agent or dealer or major domo, natural in the role of proverbial soul of any such operation. It’s a paradoxical helper part she plays, at once playing teacher, preparing others for their ultimate good, and yet also casting them as mentors on whom she’s learning. Virgo tends to live through others vicariously, especially artists and creatives, as she bides her time until she can step out of the shadows herself, using such, typically years-long, associations as her own launching pad, working the many connections she would have made in her remarkable efforts on behalf of others.

Bringing On Home

Scorpio 3° (October 26)

 

Pascale’s and Martin’s birthdays. And I have some major work on my plate. First I will rejig the sample pages, and flesh out a few more, then put in all the changes S. gives me. In preperation for tomorrow, too, I will revert to the Sextrology pages to get some departure point for part three of the sample which is hinged on drawing out that knowledge and activiting it s a tool of self-awarness and actualization. Clients themselves mainly come to us for guidance in fulfilling creative potential and purpose as well as finding their romantic, sexual, relationship footing. They tend to go hand in hand in any case. Each of the gender signs has their own general spirit and pretty clearly indentifiable natures on this score, even sexually. And we want to show the reader how one informs the other so they can actively participate in their self-realization, on all counts. When it comes to this subject and the Virgo woman, the upshot might be that she doesn’t seem to necessarily want to be in a relationship. She might think she does but I’m not sure she’s so willing to yield.

Things a Virgo need rid herself of. Disdain and Doubt. She is not by nature trusting. Think of Amy and of Heather today. Make an offering to Demeter. Loss and grief are the themes of the Demeter myth. She has only one child. The pig is sacred to her. Goddess of Sacred Law and the Cycles of life. The Eleusian mysteries center on Demeter and Kore and pre-date the Olympian pantheon of gods. Her flower is the Poppy that grows among the barley. Being an earth goddess does have its underworld tones. Demeter is assigned the zodiac constellation Virgo the Virgin by Marcus Manilius in his 1st century Roman work Astronomicon. In art, constellation Virgo holds Spica, a sheaf of wheat in her hand and sits beside constellation Leo the Lion. Underground ceramic jars to store corn, grain. They are silos. When the corn of the old crop is laid on the fields, this is seen as the reunitiging of Demeter and Persephone. Union and reunification?

Virgo’s mutable-earth status speaks to substantial change which doesn’t happen in a flash.
Virgo reminds us that we are all works in progress
Their brand of spirituality is devotional at its core.
Birds and flightless birds. The loss of flight is adaptation! Their ability to adapt and mold. To live life on life’s terms (compared with Cancer which we should change to Hope and Wishcraft. Super power of Adaptation, which is the upshot of vulnerability.

Virgo dealing with loss and imperfection. Chiron represents the wounded healer in astrology. Blesser et al.  Virgos can appear quite gangly and storklike. Spindly legs. Elvis costello. If the sign of Taurus wants you to want them, the sign of Virgo needs you to need them.Opposite sign service vs. sacrifice

Midlife crisis….Mercury god of the crossroads (after birds). Acceptance. Look at the Open Sleigh again here for notes.House. Opposites. M/F.   Age. Bible Shadow. Makes others dependent on them.

More on Virgonot the competitive type, the sign demures related to its humility. Accepting of human frailty. Sixth house of daily habits not sure if you’ve ever tried to change your but doesn’t happen in a day. The irony of Mercury ruling Virgo whose energy is gradual. Virgois a crucible, a smoldering caldron. The Vat. Which is the word to which the French version must change because they use Vessel (Verseau) but that is also the name of Aquarius so that just ends up seeming stupid. I did see the word “vat ” listed in my notes in fact. Coming from a place of helplessness. Learning you are not empty but rather open. Virgo can be a real victim as we know.

And So It Goes

Scorpio 2° (October 25)

 

Do you ever feel sad that we are no longer friends or is that the difference between you and me. I have come up with eight rough pages which are now being read; and I’m a little terrified they’re going to be perceived as sub par. Would I love it if someone said “this is great”? Yes I would. But as I type this at the end of the day I am confident in the inkling that such hopes will be dashed. Well fuck it. I can only do what I can do. I don’t need to be alive forever, first of all. The world is more in crisis than people know. S. gets it. She is the canary in the coalmine in any case. I went downstairs and she had read two pages of eight and had made a lot of notes and I thought oh fuck. But then she casually says toward the end of our brief conversation that she thinks that this book is going to be themasterpiece. I can live with that. It’s Friday night and if you listen to local radio that means Lady Di. You know, in memory of what I thought was a friendship I’m going to send you this most important message: You will take back all evil intentions directed toward me. They will not lodge in me. And I forgive you the fact that you have brain issues, part and parcel of which “imagines” other people do. Everyone in the world seems to be crazy and you’re the only sane cracker? I don’t think so. I like the idea of calling my friends crackers; surely it can be the white version of another word I’m not allowed to utter. Or is this now sounding a little supremicisty? We wouldn’t want that. And I don’t think it would be equivalent really. I mean I think it’s more funny than anything else.

I will work steadily over the weekend to bring this project home. There are specific managerial-editing tasks I need to outline and execute before taking on notes from S.’s reading process. The trick is to do do less and be more. I will admit I am bloody exhausted. But I am nearing the end so I needn’t worry my head too much about it. I think I will save as and sort of start a new document now so I can keep the rough one as a record. Would that I could get all four or five pages in the can today that would be incredible. As a rule Virgo needs to be more aspirational in relationships. We will flag to M.T. that some main-text information will ultimately be better served, removed from the main body and put into sidebars. What do pigs symbolize? They are associated with the sign of Virgo for myriad reasons. I can feel the need, on a spiritual level, to be less “full”. I don’t know if I can explain this to you, really. I just miss the emptiness I used to feel at times when I have given myself over to spiritual practice. I don’t want to be stuck today . I need to remind myself of the connection between Pandora and Mary Magdalene. I did find one point of connection but I will have to look even closer. I am doing the best I can but I have to say that I am feeling slightly overwhelmed by all of this. However I do seem to be making progress; and my hope is that by the end of the day onSunday I will have made a success of this. I imagine that much of what I’ll have to say (to report here) on Monday morning will constitute notes to M.T. and tomorrow and Sunday will likely consist of material needed to round out this project.

It is perfectly normal to get to the phase in the work and feel rather exhausted by it. I have to figure out why it is that the barn gets all that attention. It seems like such a scam to me but what do I know. But who am I to judge. It just saddens me that I can’t seem to be able to capture the kind of attention they do on the non-profit front. I need a new outlook I that me thinks. Also this needs to be the last day of saying anyting negative on here I think. It really doesn’t serve me to grouse and I’m just going to let go of that. I am so looking forward to spending a few months abroad. It is just the kind of remedy I need me thinks. I will get a few things done here today and then take another final deep breath and push through. We have been having fun and night so that is a boon. But by the new moon Sunday I need to make a switcheroo. This is likely the most boring post I’ve ever written. I have many book ideas and such up my sleeve and I look forward to getting them into works. I think it would make good sense for me to get my grants in order during this final week of October, then to use November to put together the 2021 books so that I can work on them just once a week, is all I need to do. It is odd that I did a sho w this year at festival. I do which I had more consistent support from folks but I can only do as best I can. I will reach out to all the names on that list and see if I can drum up some more support from them for the coming year as I launch my new operation. It will be so nice, this time next year to be set back up in a city.

Safe In The Knowledge

Scorpio 1° (October 24)

Saw the Judy film last night and meh. The singing was nothing like Judy. They should have hired Mary Birdsong to sing as Renee lipsynched over her vocals anyway. I felt kind of amazing upon waking and then I felt really strange. Like spaced out, weirdly. It is possible I took too much of something that is supposed to be good for me. Let’s just leave it at that. I do have the opportunity to come through for myself in the next couple of days and that really is what I intend to do. Come rain or come shine. I understand that procrastination (so-called) can be part of the process, but I’m feeling extra so and teetering on the edge a bit. I know the root cause is having other stuff to simultaneously focus on, which can fritz out the old brain a bit. But I will have enough down by the end of the day tomorrow to at least make some kind of presentation to you know who. I think the most important thing to do is to get rid of all the excess. To try and stay in the house for another year or so. To focus on the business address pretty much solely, to let the two businesses share that and to allocate some of the nonprofit funds for the house, meanwhile amping up operations on that score in any case. Of course if there is a chunk advance in the next year then we don’t need to stay put we can immediately move into that and rent can be paid to that location slash mortgage—it would also be paid for by the other two businesses as well as they would have a stake, at that point, in two locations. And by then we could actually downsize to a smaller city dwelling. I think that might be the best bet overall. I’m bringing this up because it is on the docket for the weekend and I want to get my ducks in a row before the new moon on Sunday.

I can pretty much predict how this day will go I will probably get to about page eight and then will have to finish up tomorrow, which is fine. So long as we have something to work on over the weekend we can make some magic and wow, wow, wow. Wouldn’t it be nice to marry the completion of this material to the ritual we have planned for Sunday because they really do go hand in hand. Oh to ace this phase of life. I know it requires a real presence of mind and a little bit of a makeover (as well as a doever). But today the aching is real. Truly real. I don’t know what else to say really except that I fear it will derail me. It always gets me into trouble this in ability to focus half way through a project. That’s really where I am. I suppose I should take stock of what I’m doing en route to moving the needle forward. I guess I can do that now for the next hour:

The first page is something of a snapshot. Alchemy and navel gazing. The vagary of her internal messaging system. Cartoon bubble, mechanical blinking. Taking a powder, baffling agony aunts and unks. Page two: Self help, embodying loss. Dealing with and creating voids. Emotional intelligence, being a collage, a borrower, the myth of Pandora. I’m concerned that by the third page we are being too repetitive from things we’ve written before but that might just be my projected fear on the subject. Still I’m willing to move through this. The original mama’s girl the myth of Kore. Her emotional intelligence cut its teeth on the mother-daughter dynamic which is loaded. Page four: we are talking about mutable-earth and the power to mold and conform. Prone to victim mentality, especially in sibling context. Being Svengali’d, developing a Wendy complex. Page five: mind body connection, the spica…anyway I managed to get through page eight but I’m not quite sure how it’s going to go in the end the chapter bits might actually end up being for pages total which would make the whole thing thirteen pages; but I’m thinking maybe the last page can mainly be about action items (either as part of the main text or in sidebars, we would represent the Rxs. Maybe we need to say Rx in the proposal proeper. Lots to chew on actually. We will see what we will see. I feel obliged (as I often do) to make this longer than it needs be. But I will tell you this: we are definitely in process, and so we should be. I miss my grandmother. That is a very specific feeling I rarely experience. I wonder why she is hitting me right now. I don’t even get visitations from my mother let alone hers. It’s just one of those things I guess. WE are about to start zeroing in on what is what in the book world. I will be interested to find out one way or ahnother. BH seems to sail through his experience, attacking/attaching to the people I know. I’m going to stop.

Just Keeps Rolling Along

Scorpio 0° (October 23)

 

Awoke in the night and was up until you know who did one of her famous sleep spells. I’m telling you–they work. And I had this series of vignettes of vividly dreamy sleep. S. was talking to our friend in Switzerland and I saw I had a text message on my phone but I didn’t have my glasses on and when I went down stairs, I could see lights on in the basement through the cracks in the steps. And then someone called my name of course it was J. with the fire inspector barking directives. They were there to inspect the new furnace and talk about other stuff. Can we come up? Sure (I’m in my pajamas) but sure. Anyway after they left I saw J. had texted just half an hour before; meaning at seven thirty to say he’s coming at eight. Thanks for the warning pals. Really it wasn’t a big deal but it’s just funny what things people feel comfortable doing or don’t. I couldn’t be that cavalier about someone else’s private morning time; but thankfully we do keep modified farmers hours. I did manage to get a bit of work done which was good and then I got to that place that one often does in writing (non-fiction anyway) where you could line up all the various points still needing hitting in so many different ways, all the while a whole set of other points are flashing in your brain while, as you type, their are even newer points that just follow from the previous sentence which you have to put down. It is definitely the cluster fuck moment in this process where I will have to step away in order to gain some perspective. Anyway we have a client today, and one tomorrow too, so I’m not going to try and overdo it, really, until Friday when (and I will!) I bring it all home. I felt completely stressed out earlier—bodily—and now I feel so drastically the opposite, like I’m going to float out of my body. I’m not really sure what it is. Osteoporosis? Happiness? That was just an old 30 Rock joke. Boy could I ever use a show like that to laugh at now in my life. The world first became humorous and now it has become dangerous all because of the Mango in the Maga. I really truly want to see him pay for everything he has done. Why is nobody calling him a war criminal on top of everything else—human trafficker, drug addict, money launderer, rapist, thief, how many more negative Gemini iterations can one think of here? New paragraph:

I am literally giving myself five minutes to figure out what next I want and need to say. The enormity of what I’m dealing with professionally would make anyone else’s head spin until it twisted clear off. I am going to look up barley water. I am going to search for a certain someone I know who was arrested in Florida because when folks are arrested in Florida it is made known (usually) unless you have ways around that which I doubt most people do. Sure enough there he was. I truly doubt those who would be impacted by this are aware of the visibility of this arrest. I suppose one should let the chips fall where they may. I will have to send Jen and Ian regrets as we are definitely not going to make it to Provincia next week. I will be achieving my goal today without fail. I must make this work even though I am beside myself with a certain brand of distraction. I have to just get rid of it and keep moving I have pages and pages to get through and I will do a timed writing of half an hour on this here today to plow through the mountain, I know what that refers to specficially. The son of Tony Randall made this amazing video plea for funds for his film. I will likely give a little something to the cause. He is at Wesleyan. He seems very smart and very cool and very confident which makes me happy. In many ways it must have been difficult growing up knowing you had an elderly papa who didn’t last to see his children grow. At the same time T. offered so many opportunities and would have passed in the knowledge that he finally had progeny and that makes me very happy indeed.

Hey Hey Hey

Libra 29° (October 22)

 

Woke up to knowledge of this New Yorker article on astrologers and we weren’t in it. It does bother me a bit only because they talk about how the industry changed beginning fifteen years ago which was when our book Sextrologywas first published. The whole theme of the article is how the field has altered, but nowhere are we credited for being the pioneers of changing the industry. I realize the theme of the piece was social media and apps because somehow those are markings of millenialism, but we changed the field without the use of any of that, by altering the zeitgeist, which allowed for these newer people to take hold. Nobody ever credits the originators only the imitators. I looked up the writer. She’s a Lena Dunham type. Probably has a hedgefund owning Dad who invested in one of the app companies. Anyway, I was also trying to deconstruct some design process with Jesse, but I don’t seem to be getting anywhere with him. His memory is even worse memory than mine. He made the covers with images from our book. I am just trying to see if I can get him to pull those out and send them to me; but he is being so thick about this. And now Jim is here hammering away, two weeks late, and I have to try and write while listen to this racket. I’m going to do the best I can not to let this get me down. But it isn’t easy. I feel like crying I really do. I never seem to catch much of a break these days. And it’s all because everyone else fucking procrastinates or doesn’t have a clue and I have to adjust myself when the thing is that I need to be the priority sometimes and have to make effing sure that my ass is covered before anyone elses. I don’t mean to sound negative but I just feel the weight of the world a bit today and it feels like total crap. And anyway I try to be so preventatie planning for needed peace and quiet.

I do manage to make some headway today although I’m not really sure how it happened. I’m not questioning it. All in a day’s work I suppose. I got through to about five pages, although I do keep combing back through to make sure things are short, sweet and comprehensible, in spite of the size of the thing. I’m looking forward to handing it off and going back to being an entrepreneur for a few weeks. Everything is happening all at once which isn’t a bad thing. Once the New Year arrives people will have bought a goodly number of books. I should do a press release for the Hautes and make sure that gets into the right hands as well. The tee-shirts can be now to Thanksgiving and then focus on books Thanksgiving through January. That will be that. Plus the announcement of our setting up the headquarters of our international consultancy. That is also quite a fun concept. I am going to figure out the voice recognition thing. I also had an idea about what to use as the opening bits for the 2021 books. It all needs to happen in some kind of a roll out. I suppose I should get 2021 underway in my spare time in any case and once the book deal comes in I will simply draft it within the course of two years. There should be precious few sidebars that’s for sure.

I think what I was trying to express to S. is that a few structural (managing editorial) truths are coming home to roost. That the main body language of the book should itself be Inspirational, Empowering, this should be the overall tone. Then we need to pinpoint where there are upshots where either, depending on how we did it, we would either imagine little Rx marks in the text where we can prescribe right there and then OR we can put Rx’s at the end of each sidebar, pairing each of the new/old sidebar ideas to an action item that fits the bill. I kind of thing we end up doing both. But with no literal Rx typed into the main text. Though it isn’t a terrible idea, I think it’s not a classy as we want. I want no shaded type in my book and I won’t delicious paper. I also want hardcover rights to Sextrology to be reverted or given over to another division of same publisher to make box set (if we end up doing that with Harper somewhere, which isn’t out of the realm of possibility. I want to live in the realm of possibility. It is quite possible I will come up short this week but the truth is that, if I can keep up to date here, at least for another day or two, then I may be able to take a few days off to finish what need’s finishing which becomes the fodder for this anyway, drafting into the rough document and posting over here before I refine it for sample purposes. It is a thought. I can leave it there, don’t you think? I’m ready to make some major hay!

Clean Up

Libra 28° (October 21)

 

It’s one of those mornings where you realize that try as you might to clean as you go; the entire household morphs into a bordel when one is here alone. My bed will be this life raft of provisions—phones, remote, laptop, notebook, pen, one or to sets of eyeglasses, a bowl with spoon precariously placed. Coffee cups, wine and beer and still and fizzy water glasses, gummies and oils, more pens, bedside, tissues and socks stuffed into sheets or under-bed with shoes and slippers and such. The kitchen a disaster from making clam chowder and eating but not cleaning up a single bit after. The floor a minefield of puddles food and fluff from the dryer, clothes still in it needing folding, more to move through. Needing to vacuum under beds and all around and to mop; and fold and put everything away and separate the trash from the recycleables in their myriad categories.

Coming off the last point on the Virgo theme I think I wanted to say, oh yes, that we need to look at that other element of the spica, the gestation angle. But first we might get into Mercury on the earth plane. Grounded birds. Patsy Cline I fall to pieces. The M folding in is also niche. How they psychology and emotionally process experience (delusional). Embodying the slow unfolding, things that reflect that are great too tai chi yoga. Smoldering looks? There is more to say. There are many factors that can go into the seasoned humanistic astrologer’s ability to accurately guess a person’s sign. The metaphysical aspects of being a Virgo—or any sign—are often reflected in/by the physical appearance. In contrast you might say the physical traits of a person can symbolic of their cosmic nature. Body language is also tell-tale.

But I need to get some things off my chest. I like that expression especially now. And I might as well express it. I have a lot to be motivated by at this juncture and I’ve still a long way on the current project but I have got to start coming down off of stress and get back into my body and back into a city. This has been the longest summer ever here on the Cape, though I was away for a month of it. I have to be available to more now in my and that is going to require some hard work on my part. Look I have to buck up on some level and just get some things off my docket. I have to write things down as they happen or I never can recall the what what’s on my mind. I think the plan today is to regroup and put things in some sort of outline. Maybe I should read through the entire thing again and take a sort of inventory of what’s been said and where it’s going so that I can have an outline for finishing by Friday. That would be a sensible thing to do. I did get the last Dr. thing scheduled and ordered some new eyebobs. I also asked for a few more edits on that tee media kit—still waiting on the lawyer, the designers, and for this freaking outside deck to be finished. I was toying with the idea of touching base with Banane but it might be best to just leave it. I do need to let S. know that I’m in touch with JLB and we will be putting plans together in time for the New Year’s Eve party. So much to do between now and then. I plan to spend the next two weeks working back into monk mode, putting all the minutae aside for a hot minute. Then what I need do is write a comprehensive something that can go to corporations who are just chomping at the bit to give me dough.

Spica

Libra 27° (October 20)

 

Went for a drive this morning to see what I can see in terms of whether my jacket might have been chucked outside somewhere but no luck there. Karma is a bitch and I am an agent thereof. I was focused on Virgo and so it was fitting I had a chat with D. Made myself a delicious chowder and continued bingeing on beer and Scott & Bailey. Not the most productive weekend perhaps but, oh I don’t know, it’s just a bit impossible to function on ones own. There is all the cooking and the errands and the cleaning and it’s just impossible to do any creative work under such conditions, really, but hey what are you going to do. I could have found the time if not the motivation. But I know it’s going to be full on in the coming days so I’m of the mind I should indulge. I put the branding in motion for the product, I put the media kit together for the tees. Nobody can say I’m not pulling my weight but I need now to be sharp as a tack. And so I shall be. The book work has been started and that is all that needs to happen at this particular juncture. If anything I had to step back and get some perspective—at least that’s the story I’m telling myself.

It is in many ways a no brainer to delve Virgo’s mind-body connection since the sign is hinged quite heavily on that theme. This is true, to some extent, of all three earth signs, while for Virgo woman the sign’s symbol alone gives us vivid entree to the subject. The Virgin Kore holds the spica(meaning “ear of grain”) from which we get the word spike. It would seem she is poised to put it somewhere, to ingest it or instigate gestation. The first scenario speaks to the sign of Virgo’s rule over the digestive system—Kore eats the seeds of pomegranate that seals her fate of doing time in the underworld—embodying the cycle of life and death. Digestion is a literal process of meting out life giving nutrient from waste (which nonetheless increases fertility, of which Demeter is goddess). Again, digestion is also a metaphor for the human conscience, from whence is determined the would-be increasingly divine nature of our being, whereby the duality of what is right or wrong for ourselves, our community and environment, and our (spiritual) world is determined by choices that determine our behavior (body) working in tandem with our beliefs (mind). The digestive system has an intelligence of its own—the stomach, in fact, is often referred to as the second brain. We would be hard-pressed to run the workings of this system with our minds. If anything tinkering with our bodies as might arise from hypoconstrial tendies, to which Virgo woman especially succombs, is more likely to make one sicker.

Anyway that is probably enough on that for now. I have to be carefully how it is I’m putting together this collage (an apt word) of Virgoness. Something still left to highlight: Getting out of her own way which marries to last bit of the last paragraph and speaks to that M folding in on itself while it should be an image of tuning in. I think we pretty much covered her disappearance acts to find a fresh audience. The broken record. Loss being something broken, loss of ability. Whether looking at the broken lame Hephaestus or Pandora breaking open her box (more accurately a jar), or the virgin Kore being raped we are dealing with the trauma of loss, whether it be ability or purity, either way, putting us on a road toward healing. Seeking acceptance (approval from outside sources) versus embodying acceptance of self and all the unpreventables that life throws ones way, living life on life’s terms, and also accepting the consequences of ones conscience as it determines our choices, habits, behaviors. The Virgo experience is all about letting the light (of personal revelation and healing) get in through the cracks of where we’ve been broken, like Hephaestus, letting disability and disenfrancise fuel our own sense of divinity in the crucible of our conscience, to alter our alchemy, to turn life’s lemons into lemonade. If Beyoncé only knew how astrological on point she was.

But where do we find you Virgo in this process? Would you not agree that these themes we’ve outlayed are the hingepins of your human existence?

Oysterfuck

Libra 26° (October 19)

 

I basically just binged on television. Then fell asleep in the afternoon. Woke up and thought, okay, I can ride my bicycle into town and have a couple of beers for a laugh. It was like Spring Break. My idea of Oysterfest is older rather farty types, but this was a youthquake of sorts. And I cannot help but think that there were white supremacist overtones to the whole shindig. First of all, how do twenty year old men in 2019 know all the lyrics to songs by The Band and Creedence Clearwater Revival? That smacks of something very white. I don’t really recognize this culture as anything remotely resembling the youth of my generation. These people seem really rather mean underneath. Someone made off with my jacket (with my reading glasses in the pocket) and I had to freeze on the way back home. Back to writing this sample:

When one speaks of the so-called power signs, Leo and Scorpio, and sometimes Capricorn, are cited. And while all signs are embued with their own special brand of power, Virgo has the potential to most puissant of them all. The sign energy is all about potential, possibility and the fulfillment of functional happiness that results in, or is achieved by way of, certain alchemical change. For the Virgo this is an inside job, and a tough one at that. There is by rights some necessary navel-gazing that comes with being a native of this sign; and others bear witness to the real struggle, and the machinations thereof, which characterize Virgo woman’s experience. For her, more than anyone, life is literally what she makes of it—she is defined not by her thoughts or feelings but by her actions, and more accurately, by the contributions she makes in life, compelled by the urgings of her conscience. A signature paradox of the sign, however, is the seeming vagary of Virgo’s own internal messaging system, the meanings and motivations of her emotional and moral compass, which is thus designed to drive her deeper into searching her feelings, to embrace them completely, whereby said alchemical alteration should occur. To others in her life it appears that she is forever mulling over the same issues, often for years on end, often including others as sounding boards in the process. But her trademark litanies and laments are symptoms of her inherent process of personal evolution, not the cause of being emotionally stuck, as people might perceive it.

The sign of Virgo is all about what you make of your life. You are at a crossroads, metaphysically, so that you can beg all the important questions, not just for yourself, but for all of us. Virgo represents the human conscience, the sign’s rule over digestion extending to the metaphorical chomping on and processing of experience.

Well, it would have been fun today to have a friend to do Oysterfest with; but I haven’t even heard back from the boys of summer I once knew in my youth. I feel as if I have to close a door, now, on all of that which is somewhat sad. The best days in recent years are now some seven years ago when I would go to Paris and see Dave and I feel that things have gone so down hill since then despite the boons of the past several years. It now comes down to me I feel. I have a few pages now drafted but one of the things that happens as a result of writing is the knowledge that you can’t go down every rabbit hole and that some of what you’re writing is crap (and seeming off brand); and that you have to find a way to create markers (in this case upshots) so that the book fulfills what the proposal outlines. At the same time one will need to make a check list of things that need being said. There are the action items and there are the would be sidebars. But again things like that won’t be determined except by reading through as I go. I have to have five pages finished by Tuesday that is the goal. And this is where I give myself pep talks.
