Sagittarius Horoscope for week of June 2, 2016

Aphorist James Guida contemplates the good results that can come from not imposing expectations on the raw reality that's on its way. "Not to count chickens before they're hatched," he muses, "or eggs before they're laid, chickens who might possibly lay eggs, birds who from afar might be confused with chickens." I recommend this strategy for you in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. Experiment with the pleasure of being wide open to surprises. Cultivate a mood of welcoming one-of-a-kind people, things, and events. Be so empty you have ample room to accommodate an influx of new dispensations. As James Guida concludes: "Not to count or think of chickens."

Breakfast, lunch and dinner of champions.

Moonshine is on Injured Reserve; the brakes again.  They haven't gotten completely unreliable but there were times in my drive today that I had to push the pedal all the way to the firewall.  I also had a couple very close calls/narrowly avoided collisions with other vehicles.  So the car is going to stay in the carport till I can get it to our mechanic.

Meanwhile, if I have to go anywhere I'll borrow Dad's Nissan pickup truck.

Time for an audience participation topic: Paramount has abandoned their lawsuit against the party behind the AXANAR project.

In the wake of this, would you want to make a fan movie?  If so, what franchise?

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of May 5, 2016

"Anybody can become angry," said Greek philosopher Aristotle. "That is easy; but to be angry with the right person, and to the right degree, and at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way, that is not within everybody's power and is not easy." I'm pleased to inform you, Sagittarius, that now is a time when you have an exceptional capacity for meeting Aristotle's high standards. In fact, I encourage you to honor and learn all you can from your finely-honed and well-expressed anger. Make it work wonders for you. Use it so constructively that no one can complain.


Anger used to be my worst internal enemy, and I guess I still have problems with it.  But lately I'm the coolest I've ever been and miss getting in somebody's face (especially if it's DESERVED).

When I was in examination years back, I told the therapist about something called "carburetor icing".  In aircraft engines, the fuel intakes can get much colder than the rest of the engine because of the speed of the airflow around the components and the altitude.  If the air is very humid, you might have the hazard of water vapor being induced into the carburetor and then flash-freezing, blocking the air and fuel getting into the engine, and then the engine seizing as a result.  I said, there is something like that with human emotions: run too hot and you break the relations that sustain you.  Run too cold and nobody wants to relate with you because they think you can't empathize.  Where is the healthy temperature?

If I could stay awake 24 hours a day, I could grind on Gundam: Duel Company 40 times a day, and so earn the Gold for a FAZZ (Full-Armor Double Zeta Gundam) in 10 days.  And then two weeks later, have the Gold for an Ex-S (Extreme Superior Gundam).

Why do I feel I'm already DONE with this game?

In my travels today: an action-figure scale pickup truck and an action-figure scale police cruiser in the toy aisles of two different shops.

I'm stepping back from the brink.  The money I have in pocket might need to last for a while.

GetTV was showing the 1960s Jason And The Argonauts just now.  It's weird that when I saw it in theater when I was a kid that I was so awed by the effects.  I still see the genius in it, even though now it's painfully obvious how it was done.

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of February 18, 2016

Asking you Sagittarians to be patient may be akin to ordering a bonfire to burn more politely. But it's my duty to inform you of the cosmic tendencies, so I will request your forbearance for now. How about some nuances to make it more palatable? Here's a quote from author David G. Allen: "Patience is the calm acceptance that things can happen in a different order than the one you have in mind." Novelist Gustave Flaubert: "Talent is a long patience." French playwright Moliere: "Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit." Writer Ann Lamott: "Hope is a revolutionary patience." I've saved the best for last, from Russian novelist Irene Nemirovsky: "Waiting is erotic."

Because Time won't give me Time...

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of February 4, 2016

Richard P. Feynman was a brilliant physicist who won a Nobel Prize in 1965 for his pioneering work in quantum electrodynamics. He also played the bongo drums and was a competent artist. But excessive pride was not a problem for him. "I'm smart enough to know that I'm dumb," he testified. "The first principle is that you must not fool yourself -- and you are the easiest person to fool." I suggest you adopt him as your role model for the next two weeks, Sagittarius. All of us need periodic reminders that we've got a lot to learn, and this is your time. Be extra vigilant in protecting yourself from your own misinformation and misdirection.

I applied to be a Delegate at one of the Presidential Election National Conventions overnight.  I'm not fooling myself in believing that I'll get my ticket--but I sort of feel that my chances are good.  We'll see in March.

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of January 14, 2016

Do you want more money, Sagittarius? Are there treasures you wish you could have, but you can't afford them? Do any exciting experiences and life-enhancing adventures remain off-limits because of limited resources? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, now would be an excellent time to formulate plans and take action to gather increased wealth. I don't guarantee total success if you do, but I promise that your chance to make progress will be higher than usual. Cosmic tendencies are leaning in the direction of you getting richer quicker, and if you collaborate with those tendencies, financial magic could materialize.

Oddly enough I'm not playing Powerball.  Not because of any moral issue, just that I'm even more broke than usual and can think of many better ways of spending mad money if I had it.

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of January 7, 2016

A bottle of Chateau Cheval Blanc wine from 1947 sold for $304,000. Three bottles of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild 1869 went for $233,000 apiece. The mystique about aged wine provokes crazy behavior like that. But here's a more mundane fact: Most wine deteriorates with age, and should be sold within a few years of being bottled. I'm thinking about these things as I meditate on your long-term future, Sagittarius. My guess is that your current labor of love will reach full maturity in the next 18 to 20 months. This will be a time to bring all your concentration and ingenuity to bear on making it as good as it can be. By September of 2017, you will have ripened it as much as it can be ripened.

My New Year's Resolution is to get some projects going on Amazon Studios.  More about that after I recover from my current case of head crud.
