sapphic by nature she is highly romantic in gay relationships smacking of schoolgirl crushes

Pluto’s remote energy keeps Mars is impulsive expression in check allowing Scorpio comfortable distance from feelings meaning she rarely acts rashly upon them. Carrying on in any manner whether with angry outbursts or crying Jags or sentimentalism all blatant waste of energy that should be put into other uses . The ability to contain and control the rest of us what the rest of us experience as spontaneous sensation Makes her almost cool headed character uncannily composed under pressure. Never flustered by unexpected circumstance not easily swayed by flattery or hurt by insults she doesn’t feel victimized daunted or challenge despite others intentions to affect her. Christian Crystallisation of scorpios emotional life dictates experiencing her own feelings as facts. Others have humble opinions she has all the answers in relationships especially her way or highway. Her beliefs are non negotiable or dislikes and likes are definite definitive inscrutable self-evident whole of her mental framework of consolidation of subjective views into hard and fast system of personal truths as air tight as Einstein’s theory.

Rather than adding to the confusion or becoming lost in the shuffle she becomes instead the voice of authority regardless of her birth order taking on a parental role sorting out the domestic model pointedly telling everybody else what to do and when to do it. Her blatant bossiness is welcomed by both parents while her siblings see her as an anchor granting her superior status in return for constant support and definitions she brings to their world. Working in tandem with her more lenient mother they form a complete maternal presence. She tends to make close respectful relationships with their mothers.

Body and soul Scorpio wears expectant expression Perpetually watching waiting for something to occur arrive in conversation she anticipates ones every word hurrying conversation along with quick nods hissed yeses annoyed by slight aggressions often seems to only half listen as if engaged by other thoughts providing time until she might interject her own opinions. Preoccupation stems from her perceptive antenna feeling the atmosphere surrounding what’s being said compelled to read between the lines .

She can say more with fewer words than anyone anyway Often making a person feel he has received a subliminal transmission. This capacity used to her best advantage works with words as a writer poet songstress even a CEO would employ dripping metaphor and description of events surrounding a recent board meeting .

The following blocks of text are exceprts from my first year of  Blagues, nos. 576-580. 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.  (For thirty days this paragraph will include this parentheses to say: I realized that in the summer of 2016 I actually didn’t post for some time, such that for the expanse of two months, I will continue to number the past Blagues, as above, five at a time, but there will be nothing to post from that period.)


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.

Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go!
