Sagittarius Horoscope for week of March 20, 2014

There should be nothing generic or normal or routine about this week, Sagittarius. If you drink beer, for example, you shouldn't stick to your usual brew. You should track down and drink the hell out of exotic beers with brand names like Tactical Nuclear Penguin and Ninja Vs. Unicorn and Doctor Morton's Clown Poison. And if you're a lipstick user, you shouldn't be content to use your old standard, but should instead opt for kinky types like Sapphire Glitter Bomb, Alien Moon Goddess, and Cackling Black Witch. As for love, it wouldn't make sense to seek out romantic adventures you've had a thousand times before. You need and deserve something like wild sacred eternal ecstasy or screaming sweaty flagrant bliss or blasphemously reverent waggling rapture.

The problem is normalcy has a very tight grip here.  What's weird, isn't.  Which way is down?

I guess my brother decided NOT to take me with him on his vacation.  I'll be okay with it, I guess...he probably had to move quicker than he originally planned.  I won't hold this against him and I'll wish him the best of times.

At least I won't have to attend a stupid St. Patrick's Day party like I did last time.

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of March 13, 2014

In the old fairy tale "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," the poor woodcutter Ali Baba is collecting firewood in the forest when he spies a gang of thieves bragging about their exploits. Observing them from a hiding place, he hears them chant a phrase, "open sesame." This magically unseals the opening to a cave that happens to be full of their stolen treasure. Later, when the thieves have departed, Ali Baba goes to the cave and says "open sesame" himself. The hocus-pocus works. He slips into the cave and steals a bag of gold from the robbers' plunder. This story has resemblances to an adventure you could enjoy sometime soon, Sagittarius. I suspect you may discover your own version of "open sesame." It will give you access to a less literal and more legitimate bounty.

This week promises a magic carpet ride and some shaking for the Sheikh.  Maybe we'll Rock some Casbah as well.

The prospect of vacation travel meant a change in footwear--"athletic" shoes to replace the sneakers that fell apart around Christmas last year.



Breaking them in now. Expect to be someplace other than Rather Manor sometime this week.

*) Tried to sell my old wireless modems at a second-hand mobile phone store overday, and the store refused to buy them. I wonder if I should just consign them to a friend who has an eBay store.

*) Zvezda in Russia promises that there will be new kits in their Art of Tactic series that will be scale compatible with Wings of Glory WW2...and I'm particularly interested in the Bristol Blenheim bombers. Well, with the politics between Stateside and Moscow being what they are, I shouldn't expect to get these very quickly.

*) REIGN on CW is a mess. It's supposed to be historical but their visual RNA for scenery, props, costuming and casting is jarringly off-the-mark. Or, at least, I THINK it's supposed to be historical.

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of March 6, 2014

For the itch you are experiencing, neither chamomile nor aloe vera will bring you relief. Nor would over-the-counter medications like calamine lotion. No, Sagittarius. Your itch isn't caused by something as tangible as a rash or hives, and can't be soothed by any obvious healing agent. It is, shall we say, more in the realm of a soul itch -- a prickly tickle that is hard to diagnose, let alone treat. I'm guessing that there may be just one effective cure: Become as still and quiet and empty as you possibly can, and then invite your Future Self to scratch it for you.

My brother is talking vacation...if his travelling bone is in need of exercize, then so is mine.

(Linking to an NPR Post ABOUT THIS, I added:)

I remember when OMNI magazine had an article about a fiction-writing artificial intelligence named Racter.

Elsewhere today I on Facebook I linked to an article about a thesis-writing app that has suddenly become a tool for abuse among scientific scholarly “authors”.

Allow me to connect some more dots here.  Upstairs, I have a lectern dictionary I snitched from my brother, who acquired it in a neighbor’s garage sale.  One of the features of this dictionary is a bibliography of the World’s Great Books, as judged in the 1950s when the dictionary was compiled.  Over 2500 books are included, all now public domain.
In theory, a battery of artificial intelligences can figure out all the story genres you like, and then mine the public domain for paradigms on which to construct new material especially for you, in manners that particularly appeal to you.  They would make a whole new canon—just for you.

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of February 20, 2013

The Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich wrote his Eighth Symphony in a mere two months during the summer of 1943. He worked on it in an old henhouse on a former chicken farm. The location helped relax him, allowing him to work with extra intensity. I wish you could find a retreat like that for yourself sometime soon, Sagittarius. I think you would benefit from going off by yourself to a sanctuary and having some nice long talks with your ancestors, the spirits of nature, and your deepest self. If that's not practical right now, what would be the next best thing you could do?

Some would say that Rather Manor is a good place to start if you want a creative retreat.  But I have found over the years that we tend to bring in a lot of our own noise without realizing it.  So I don't know what the answer is here.

I've had laryngitis for the last some days, and I wonder how long I will need to endure the condition.

I've even thought very seriously about the possibility of permanent speech loss and what that might do to what's left of my working life.

It's not like anybody's ever complimented me about my voice, or invited me to speak just to hear me talk.  No, more often than not I'll be interrupted or cut off before I complete my trains of thought.

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of February 6, 2014

"What is the purpose of the giant sequoia tree?" asked environmentalist Edward Abbey. His answer: "The purpose of the giant sequoia tree is to provide shade for the tiny titmouse." I suggest you meditate on all the ways you can apply that wisdom as a metaphor to your own issues. For example: What monumental part of your own life might be of service to a small, fragile part? What major accomplishment of yours can provide strength and protection to a ripening potential that's underappreciated by others?

It's hard to know the whole of one's own ecology, macrocosm or microcosm.

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of January 30, 2014

Can you imagine what it would be like to live without any hiding and pretending? How would you feel if you could relax into total honesty? What if you were free to say exactly what you mean, unburdened by the fear that telling the truth might lead to awkward complications? Such a pure and exalted condition is impossible for anyone to accomplish, of course. But you have a shot at accomplishing the next best thing in the coming week. For best results, don't try to be perfectly candid and utterly uninhibited. Aim for 75 percent.

When it comes the old saw about the truth hurting, I'm something of a masochist.  I never could tell a pretty lie about myself.
