Taurus 0° (April 20)

Watched The Serpent. Didn’t get much sleep last night and doing one big catch up once again. Plus planning the menu. But I am officially into the Cancer man bit today so that feels good. FF has taken to be outside back as early as six-thirty which is when S. is visible in the kitchen. He is a predator. I hope he gets the book thrown at him. I forgot about Elliot Smith. I will want to listen to him tonight maybe. Should be an interesting next couple of days with S. going on the road until the weekend. I can only hope there will be no incidents to report. Now some more mythic thoughts on Aries: The kicker is she cloaks herself in the most primal, chthonian of female (Gaia) energy by getting under Pallas’ giant skin. In this way we see Athena drawing power from the feminine and the masculine fairly equally, in one sense, taking full license, covering all bases, no source of force to be denied her. We might also interpret his to mean that the goddess recognizes no distinction between the masculine and feminine principles, being the embodiment of the perfect blend thereof.  We are reminded of the Origin of Love song from the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the lyrics of which actually reference war with the giants and speak to a primordial time when the various sexes were all rolled into one. The name Hedwig, by the way, is pretty on brand, deriving from the Old High German Haduwig, that combines hadu, meaning “battle, combat” and wig, “fight, or duel.” Pallas also simply means “spear-toting.”And we venture to say that the Aries woman would be fairly down with this mythological rumination, and that these interpretations ring true on a soul level. Beneath her signature primitive good looks, often characterized by a jutting cave-womanly jawline and a thick, heavy brow, a hallmark of owly wisdom, many an Aries feels herself a mix of polarities, eschewing labels of sexual or gender identity, feeling very much beyond impositions of a binary. She simply is who she is, and she will waste little time in life trying to fit some societal mold. Aries can put on a fiercely sociable face, but she is at her core an intensely private person who generally leads an insular life with the person with whom she partners. In fact she often attracts (over-) protective types who try but will consistently fail to keep her reined in or one who is so indulgent as to constantly be tempting her with trips and outings restricted to a tight twosome.  [I have not figured out how to end this]

I am now in my seventh year of writing this Blague. Year six, I went through the first five years, and excerpted from five Blagues per day, as a way of taking inventory of what came before. If there are any blocks of text following this paragraph that would be from the corresponding day last, the sixth, year.

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.
