How a game begins

I will be driving/visiting/shooting for almost the entire month of October, so all of these will be written WELL ahead of time.  A true test of my uncannily oracular, peculiarly prescient prognosticationary abilities.  Hopefully I have enough unseen dog pics/vids to keep people entertained.

This first one is going to be pretty easy, since there’s nothing much going on.  It’s a shitty day for shooting on Sunday, but I have no match then, so I don’t really care.  If you do, it’s the moon in Sagittarius screwing with you.  That and your trigger pull.  Otherwise, it’s an excellent week in general, and particularly for Libra as it gains Venus.  Honestly, this would be a good time for peace talks, but there’s no indication that there will be any.  Instead there’s only one day of interest, which is the 5th.  Then we’ve got Venus (peace/love/sex/femininity), the Sun (growth/life/power), the moon (change/variability/water/feminine) and Jupiter retrograde (misrule/illegality/regret/punishment) all lining up together.  Now anyone can take the known planetary meanings and put them in a blender, it takes an astrologer to taste the resultant celestial slurry and pronounce judgement.  In this case, it’s about trouble involving a female leader, probably of an island or peninsula (since the moon being in Aquarius doubles down on the “water” aspect.)


Not enough room to swim, but Lily will try anyway. Dakota does not like getting his belly wet.

Apres le bain, la secousse.
