Asperitus Casting Runes...
Greetings, my liquid things of passion and betrayal! May this New Year bring you everything you've earned by your efforts in recent times! Thus, we may shortly be rid of you, if capital punishment hasn't gone off the statute books!
However, don't feel I'm singling you out for special consideration, as I am also working on the departure of lugubrious Saturn and miserable Capricorn whilst keeping an eye on marauding Mars, your traditional ruler and also that of the arrogant Ram. And, since we're on the subject of Mars, let us begin the vile and bitter prognostications for 2004.
The belligerent one is in awful Aries and your solar sixth house of work and health. Thus, you'll either be slaving all the hours that god sends to get ahead or you'll fall victim to fevers, inflammatory diseases and a serious case of red hair. Ugh! As lugubrious Saturn is in Cancer and your solar ninth house clashing with Mars, if you're working hard then you won't have time for god, study or religion but may clash with elderly foreigners or legal persons. If, however, you take the 'ill-health' option, then you may well find god or take a course in comparative religions to while away the tedious hours of leisure brought about by the paralyzing onset of inflamed head or hair or both.
With jolly Jupiter in irritating Virgo, you may be discerning in your choice of friends and develop and interest in veterinary science. You may even discover that such pursuits are compatible and focus your close personal relationships in the animal kingdom in a most alarming fashion. Who ever knows, with you, little stings-in-the-tail! With revolting Uranus in Pisces and your solar fifth house, you may well take your pleasures in a new and unusual manner. When jolly Jupiter moves on into Libra and your solar twelfth house, you will collapse and have to rest in solitude if you've been working too hard. If you're sick already, you may become morose and withdrawn and decide to live away from everyone but a few select 'animal' friends. If however you found god, you may rush to a mountainous retreat and spend your days alone in prayer and devotion.
So, in fact, it doesn't matter which road you take, as you'll end up by yourself in the long run. This, I suspect, is for the best since everyone's afraid of you. Do try to enjoy yourselves this year and make a resolution not to kill things just because they annoy you. Hail and farewell, my scorpion lovelies!
