Five Foot Nothing is currently doing year 7 exams. This is the 1st year she has had to do the whole exam format exams, but in typical FFN style, she isn’t really that fazed- & does seem to be studying…although I am just a teeny weeny bits suspicious that is also a reason to get out of crack of dawn swim squad this week “I need to have my brain fresh, Mum.”
To say English isn’t her favourite subject would be to state the bleeding obvious. With a heap of Aries planets (including Sun, Mars, Saturn & Mercury) she simply has neither the patience nor the inclination to hang around analysing characterisation when she can save the pain & (in her words) use her time more efficiently by watching the movie. So it was when I was trying to explain why Puck is so important in Midsummer Nights Dream. Not because his name appears a really lot of times (:)) & because he changes Bottom into an ass (which she though was the only funny bit “why do they call it a comedy when it so isn’t?”), but because he directs and influences traffic and thereby the storyline in a way which is very Scorpionic indeed. He listens, he waits, he acts, he disappears into the background. Just like Scorpio. I’ve seen hubby do it on the football field…
The Sun got an extra dose of Scorpio today with the sextile to Pluto. This influence will still be felt tomorrow, when the Moon will also get a dose of Pluto. Ouch.
The Moon moves into Cancer at around 5.14am (Sydney time) on Thursday morning, bringing with it a dose of the famous Cancer mood, a strange inclination to bake and a magnetic attraction to the block of chocolate (or packet of biscuits) in the fridge. Personally, I am starting early and doing spag bol for dinner tonight. I do it using a mix of chicken & lean beef mince and throw in grated zucchini and carrot to thicken the sauce and make 500g of meat feed us tonight plus some spares for the freezer. How very Moon in Cancer of me.
The usual deal re the Moon/Pluto opposition- be careful of impulsion, compulsion, jealousy, paranoia, guilt and all those other Scorpio words. If faced with a conflict that you should simply not be engaging in, lie down until the feeling passes- it will be safer in the long run.
