Scorpio 26° (November 18)

Going through a mountain of receipts and otherwise trying to organize my existence. Also helps me get my bearings on specific dates such that I can update my menu files. Just some wine and cheese as I power through on Afterglow banking into the night. And then back to astrological thoughts: Capricorn is also known as Ops and Cybele, associated with mountains, city towers and walls (Capricorn woman does put up walls!) from whom we get the word cymbals, because her worship involved wild, ecstatic, orgiastic parties. Rhea-Cybele is in fact the original model for (her favorite grandson) Dionysus who adopted this ritual, including being drawn in a chariot pulled by leopards. The paradox of Capricorn woman is this dichotomy between being a lofty goody-goody “who plays by the rules” customs, social conduct and restrictions, and this wild nature that begs for release. The wholesome Mary Tyler Moore character (in her signature Capri Pants) whom we later learn was something of a partier who had to seek recovery. It is the sign of supermodels like the pristine Christy Turlington but also that of Helena Christensen and Kate Moss (many a supermodel in fact!). Also the unapologetic Marianne Faithfull comes to mind. Icons. Also Capricorn is the sign of Faith (just as Pisces is the sign of Love). Leva would have a natural faith in herself and in life in general. She might not see the top of the mountain, but she has faith she will achieve. She is aspirational, she is on the ascent in life from the moment she makes her first move. And when she makes it to “the top” she would have a perspective change and, in her private archetypal mountain environment, starting crashing her cymbals—bang a gong, get it on. She fights for her right to party. She plays by the rules to gain her ultimate freedoms in life. Her path, like all the sign’s, is a valid one. We always say “you can’t escape your archetype” and it is best to embrace one’s own archetypal nature. Her strengths are: Endurance, Responsibility (meaning an ability to respond), Using all opportunities (Ops), Self-preservation, Conservation/Preservation of Self, natural Faith in herself, not so much a know-it-all but someone who naturally knows herself. Like Kate Moss, she never explains (unapologetic) and never complains. Her weaknesses are being overly defensive (that turreted nature), putting up walls, she can be condescending, but we wouldn’t call her unforgiving except when it comes to (new) social ills. Personally she will endure a lot from people she loves but at some point “in Time” if said people don’t respect her, she will take herself out; she can come off as elitist and can be overly cautious or too capricious in nature. Your “likes” are spot on; but for dislikes we would say: Waste, Climbers (she naturally ascends—the Goat doesn’t climb per se or step on others), Brutishness, Greed, Oppression, “Too Slick” people, places and things. She mightn’t like to plan her wedding, but it would be more a case of not wanting to call too much attention to herself. She doesn’t want to make too much of anything—she would find too grand a to-do to be a waste. She’d rather have an intimate gathering with those with whom she has “quality relationships”
