Gemini 10° (May 31)
Today is Walt Whitman’s Birthday Walt Whitman is a Gemini. So is the circus peanut. If you want to grasp the duality of the sign ponder that. On Whitman’s birthday we are reminded of the divine glory in what we all too often consider mere existence, a perception made all the more difficult by a tangerine demon who seeks to destroy every moment of the daily love and celebration we should feel just being alive. We must take up the better angelic, swift sword of righteousness and disallow the diabolical creatures to drag us down any longer. We are not powerless. We are the majority and goodness shall prevail but not without a fight. Take a stand, make a move; don’t stew like a slowly boiled frog. Don’t kid yourself into complacency. Be vigilant and be kind and be strong. Start by ridding yourself of your own indecencies. Make amends to those you’ve wronged. Free yourself from the bonds of even a glint of darkness. Ready yourself for the moral, mortal battle of the ages being waged in the human heart.
Today’s Forecast is No You Better Didn’t with a 99% chance of Karma Goin’t Bite Yo Ass. That’s the way I’m looking at it anyway. I have cleared the path (I hope), swept my side of the street. Sometimes it takes clarifying something from the past that isn’t sitting right. Not always making amends but also giving others the opportunity to do likewise—whether or not they feel they owe it is on them—as I take a rather medieval approach to this sort of thing. (sitting on a horse in armor) “I hereby offer you this mercy to clear your conscience and in so doing receive my forgiveness in the name of all that is holy divine.” I just did that in case you were wondering. Otherwise forever hold your peace sort of thing. And I just get tired of letting things slide, if you know what I mean and why wouldn’t you?
We spent the afternoon strolling Provincetown as it just looked too dodgy and cold to go for our beach walk. And we ran into just about everyone we could synchronistically see. It was fairly life affirming and a good reminder that there are so many friendships and blendships there for us. We ended up walking about five miles which makes sense as Commercial Street is three miles long and we didn’t go quite to either end but just about. Grabbed a dozen shrimp and sort of wung it and they definitely came out delish—just some lime, chili flakes, fresh minced garlic, salt and pepper—and we served it on Caesar. Nothing wrong with that. We had a mocktail of watermelon juice to start. For the past couple nights someone (not me) has been falling asleep to Victor Victoria but never getting that much further along than, say, twenty minutes. Last night we did get to nearly three quarters the way through. I now have seen it six and a half times at least in the past several days. It’s faggy Friday when we always watch something super fagged out. Tomorrow, Saturday, is Subtitle Saturday when we watch foreign films or TV shows.
Okay I am forging ahead and going to do a little timed writing on the Aquarius experience:
Following Capricorn, the cardinal-earthsign, which correlates, among other things, to the old-guard and the edification of tradition, comes the eleventh sign of Aquarius, breaking through what has come before with explosive energy. Aquarius, fixed-air, is about the establishment of new orders, air signifying the world of ideas, sets of ideals, as well as social ideology. The signis associated with all things revolutionary and evolutionary, the sweeping in of new waves and epochs, new concepts, paradigms and constructs. The sign symbol depicts two waves, air-waves, new waves of frequency to which we are all are colletively attuning. The sign’s ruler, Uranus, is the deemed “the awakener,” and its cosmic force is sudden and sweeping. Named for the god of the universe it points to our collective consciousness and, well, univerality—the eleventh astrological house rules large groups and organizations such as would usher in sweeping new modes of thinking. This is also, among many other attriubtes, the astrological house of the future—all that is new to explore, and what uncharted territory, metaphysical or otherwise, into which one can boldly go forth. How better do we represent the future and that which is still left to explore by us but by the concept of infinite outer space, itself, that which the sky-god Uranus personifies in mythology. The fact that Aquarius people are known to be far out or freaky is more than pop-astrology, it speaks to the future energy of the sign.
Uranus signals divergence from the norm, in keeping with its revolutionary power. Now think of it biologically: What is a sudden mutation but an oddity in the present which nonetheless will become the mainstay of the future. It is a glimpse of what is to come. Diversity, all too often a dirty word to conventional thinking and society, is actually the most crucial aspect of the survival of any species. The mutation ultimately becomes the mainstay. And so if you want to know what the general norm of the human personality will Look like down the line in our history, look to your Aquarian friends and family and they will give you some idea. Shocking isn’t it? Well, shockis that sudden sweepingness of the new. And who knew that Darwinism was thus encoded into this most ancient Zodiac—those crazy Chaldeans! Of course Chrlie himself was born under this most evolutionarily minded sign along with other light-bulb heads like Galileo, Thomas Edison, Copernicus and H.G. Wells who could never have predicted that his steam-punk sensibility might still be trendy into the twenty-first century. Or maybe he did. The male and female Aquarian chapters in our book Sextrologyare titled The Visitorand The Vision, respectively. Taken together they speak to the alien(ated) quality of the sign, as if they are visitors from outer time-space, and to the revelatory energy of the sign, both in their own epiphanous experience as well as that very same effect they can have on others.
To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree pointof the Sabian Symbol will be one degree higher than the one listed for today. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°, for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period. There are 360 degrees spread over 365 or 6 days per year—so they near but not exactly correlate.
Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go!
