Scorpio 24° (November 16)

Stayed in bed all morning just to pass the time, waiting to go get booster shot. Which I did. I did feel almost immediately ill. Still it didn’t stop me from living on a dinner diet of paté and baguette. One thing about being a single person is nobody is looking over your shoulder, which is both a good and bad thing. Had chat with A about Afterglow and expressed my need to take better care of myself these next five and a half months. Ate a ton of hot homemade tomato chicken broth I made. Organized the Afterglow office and got some supplies from East End. Anyway… Capricorn Woman: Leva may be responsible, but responsibility is often heaped on Cap girls at too early an age. It makes sense she is the older sister. To find sympathy with the character it may be important to consider the fact that, in her conservative household, Leva found love by being what her parents wanted her to be. She is made old before her time. Capricorn is thus the “grand-mother” archetype of the zodiac, associated with the Titan goddess Rhea who takes goat form. She has that “grand perspective”, a cool remove, an old soul who is really a natural wise woman as if she’s lived many lives and is born experienced. She doesn’t so much play the know-it-all however because she isn’t insecure about her innate wisdom. The Capricorn gets younger with age. I think the trap here is getting stuck on the notion this sign is stodgy. Cap woman can seem haughty, stand-offish but that is her natural defense. The wife of Cronus (Roman: Saturn, whose namesake planet rules the sign), she is sometimes called Rhea-Cronus and in mythology Saturn, with his scythe, is both Father Time and The Grim Reaper. The Rhea archetype which Capricorn woman embodies is thus, on some level, aware of the ephemeral nature of life and she is disposed not to waste that most precious commodity of Time—this is the root of her not suffering fools. She won’t make fast friends or do anything in a rushed state. The motto of Capricorn is I use (as in “my Time wisely” thus the opposite of I waste). She thinks ahead, she is in it for the long game, she is ever the tortoise, not the hare. She is all about endurance (Endora, the “grand mother” in the show “Bewitched” is the most haughty and foreboding of characters but we cannot help loving her as a true icon of personal power). The name Rhea means “ease” which is very important because it points to Capricorn’s own paradox: Because the Capricorn embodies the notion of life being something of a struggle, hard enough as it is, people of the sign don’t seek to add to this dynamic.

To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree point of the Sabian Symbol may at times be one degree higher than the one listed here. 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.
