Aquarius 4° (January 23)

I don’t know what’s wrong with me that I can’t move forward but I’m going to do my best now to continue to talk while I edit the subject is Taurus owning up to motivations behavior and agenda not obfuscate ING easier said than done which is ironic since the sign motto is I have it’s all about that witch they possess 2nd house all about it and this idea doesn’t distinguish between literal and figurative variety material metaphorical wealth and or value. Assets are assets as far as astrology is concerned this is the sole fix earthside the analogy of a garden in which to be cultivated contents that provide sustenance blooming bits of beauty food and Flowers which whets your appetite stimulates many senses ruled by Venus premiere feminine sign trust real plane name from Alice of love. Rules the masculine carnal sign of Libra the astral plane some maintain punishment be the main ruler more than one that the earth itself is the true ruler . Makes no difference to us tours energy inviting alluring opposite of areas which precedes it that Mars ruled sign objective here now subjective tourists are designed to appeal that cannot be removed from larger conversation on people born under the sun areas people have to work at including other stars people can help but not which can be tough garden path to hoe tourist notoriously UN straightforward be obliq asking others a series of questions to which he already know the answers tours designed to illustrate desired agenda without seeming to assert it quite genius and ability to make others believe desired outcomes or all their ideas evocative women it literally you draw others out decisions take action signature leading questions do you think we should maybe do this or that such that you seem to only ever be offering suggestions and therefore off the hook for responsibility should things go pear shaped selective in relationships better or worse every person tends to have purpose for him aspiration was at the front of his mind said Taurus is propelled forward in life for primary through his associations not typically one to go it alone actually not ever. Needs to be appreciated never since the word his own sense of value linked to others influence. Paradoxical in that can be sycophantically extreme tours those whose company he seeks to keep while at the same time he would be relegating these folks to role as stepping stones may be useful necessity in navigating figurative garden landscape of his experience evolutionary path in particular which as it tends to be for garden or landscape architect is revealed rather than imposed subjective not objective energy at work text cues from nature the most natural Pagan in the astrological pantheon cited in previous works modern archetype Chauncey Gardner being there. Present minded character unfolding agenda exist in the minds and influences of others including romantic interest and called that named Eve . Fiery areas Big Bang fixed earth Taurus represents pastoral Eden one is a combination of completely innocent totally blissed out describes chancey tuati and by extension desired state of being firm Taurus as well he isn’t often as guileless as he would have people believe which is where he could trip himself up doesn’t him stuff to service and pretending that his life is just one happy accident after another because overtime the rest of us have difficulty buying it and they keep their begin to deny him many assists he requires. Another in the stream of ironies that defines his default behavior is in fact he would engender more support and guidance outright entree if he didn’t feign indifference tardies legs up. Symbol of the bullets of ironic and speak to the subjective energy of the sign he was Venus bears the familiar female symbol recalls hand mirror mirror of Aphrodite itself speaks to Taurus is reflexive reflective view prioritizing not just being there but being seen over seeing for oneself absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to be seen for who we are and boatloads of talent naturally possess but counterproductive to worry about how you’re seeing in the sense of an overemphasis on concern of how others might judge that you overthink overcompensate with phony Navy T but we’re speaking but the irony of the bull symbol dot dot parrot 

The following blocks of text are exceprts from my first year of  Blagues, nos. 1486-1490. I am reading through all of my Blagues, five per day, and posting some samples here. Now, in my sixth year of writing this Blague, by the time I get to my seventh, I will have journeyed through all the daily Blagues of my first five years. If that’s confusing I apologize. Year seven, I’ll only have to read through year six, once a day.

My mind is a swirl of France and Maine, of the past, hoisted upon me from a giant shelf of books I haven’t read. I’m lost at sea in my sense of sanity, questionable, like everyone’s, due to consciousness. Still feeling so young and free and determined and impatient for the reality I’m not living and ever minding the gap. I could be less silently demanding and more at easy relationship; daily drama, a distraction from total backdrop of truth and inevitability.

I guess it was time to start a new poetry file. I was thinking about Gemini, being the bird, and how they like to sing. I wish I had a very good Gemini friend. I had two bad ones in my family growing up but I have encountered such good (women, mainly) Twinsies. Ah, I do have a friend called Damon* who’s a good one—I really need to make a point to see them. Segue. I’m kind of hungry. That’s what you get for waking at 4:43 AM and having breakfast half an hour later. Back to the Gemini thing: Expressing what feels like that crux of consciousness (different from Virgo conscience). I wonder how many times a day I hit delete. I’ve always liked the name Stuart, although I don’t think I could ever pull it off. Coming back does feel harder this time around. But I know I can do it. Vanity being such a good motivator.

It can be a gentle turning of the wheel, and it can include some significant moves. In just over a year’s time we will have something Boston environs. I wonder what would happen to Facebook if we all took just one day to block all our Facebook friends. There will be that investment. We will have the vertical existence. We will put those pieces into place. And all things Glow will be under a completely separate roof. We will be on our way to realizing a new era without having to change much from the existing one, which is great. It’s such a doable formula and includes such great press and promotional possibilities. It’s something I’ve always dreamed of honestly. And we will take the Fall and the Spring to delve the depths of possibility in terms of manufacturing in New England, which will dovetail with my non-profit work.

*As I write this on the posting (if not the actual entry) date, having just wrote this morning about Damian, wouldn’t you know it!: Damian and wife got in touch with us this morning after months “out of the blue”. So guess what folks. we captured a little of that kind of magic I had originally hoped would make it into most of these entries, in one way or another, over the course of time. Sometimes by theme, but today, by way of a little synchronicity.

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 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. There are 360  degrees spread over 365/6 days per year—so they nearly, but not exactly, correlate.
