Astrological Forecast? "Your (anus?) is definitely in retrograde and is in tough aspect to Pluto.
Frustrated of late by low reader response, I uncharactersiticaly got a bit into to occult, by first tossing the I-Ching and then fooling with astrology.
Well, the I-Ching was a bit dour.
"You have dipped your tail into the water. Nothing will further."
The astrological message made me laugh out loud:
"Uranus is currently in retrograde and is in tough aspect to Pluto."
Seems my anus has definitely been in retrograde of late.
Hardly anybody has been coming around.
Which is odd, because I've had good luck in getting stuff published in the local papers hereabouts.
It's lonely at the top? Well, no. That's not quite it.
I will probably never reach the top, not even near to where I once had been...but it was fun having one's own newspaper column for a while.
And lately, portents are not good.
I worry about that astrological bit:
Uranus is currently in retrograde and is in tough aspect to Pluto.
Maybe that's the trouble.
My anus is definitely in retrograde these days , and when it comes to Pluto, the relative lack of response to my blog of late--is probably that I have been poking that puppy.
My Anglo friend, working in construction with some Italians, has come to me for translation. "Ivan, what do they mean when they say "fuck dog"?
..."Give you and object lesson: I've been dogging it in my blog for a couple of weeks, and by slow reader response--I guess it's starting to show.
Would you take a used dog from this man?
Well, at least, a new blog?
But I fear my anus is in retrograde!
