Aries 29° (April 18-19)

Sunday we will speak to Hull realtor. Interesting but not really sure it’s for us. We need to get a vibe. I have changed tack and I’m going to write another page and a half of Aries woman today so I can send S. off with it. Then I will work through the start of Cancer man.  I need to write myself to freedom. Sunday we will have shrimps and leftover sole and on Monday a lovely chicory salad with Danish blue. There is much to do and it will happen. Here are some Aries woman thoughts: There is a seamless connection between personifying the primal, indeed primordial, feminine as Aries woman does and a certain element of what might be considered emasculation, from the masculine perspective, which in fact is only an expression of experiencing and embodying the feminine principle as the primary one in the universe. We said in the first section of this chapter that we were putting a pin in exploring yet another Pallas figure (there are several) in the Athena myth which lives in the hearts and minds of Aries women. One Pallas was a Gigantes(giant), one of the offspring of Gaia and the castrated Uranus, whom Athena slayed during the Gigantomachy, the great war between the giants and the Olympian gods for the supremacy of the universe. The war itself is interpreted by scholars as an extension of the existing battle of the sexes between Gaia (Mother Earth) and Uranus (Father Sky), thus the primal conflict between the feminine and masculine principles. The giant race is depicted with snake legs, having slithered out from their mother, the great war also symbolizing a conflict of the wormy, chaotic natural world and this new order of civilized intelligence represented by the new gods. Athena, who is elevated on this score, even among her fellow Olympians, as the personification of divine intelligence, civilization and moral fortitude, flays the snaky Pallas, a vivid symbolic act of emasculation, wearing his skin as her cloak, taking on more than his name. There is more than one reversal in all this: As emanations of Gaia, the giants represent the primordial female power, and the Olympians, led by the new sky god, Zeus, the masculine force in the cosmos. As the lead proponent of the latter, Athena is the primordial female in literally masculine form. She takes on the power of the masculine principle as an armor to her primal feminine force, not only slaying and flaying as she goes, but in the guise of a male god, besting them at their own game.

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.
