Tongue-in-cheek look at astrology
When I saw the July 1st prompt for Sunday Scribblings was â€œwhatâ€™s your sign?â€ …I thought it was a real hoot â€“ gave me a chuckle.
I have no opinion of astrology beyond my consideration of it as a fun and fascinating parlor game. So, I decided to get a personal astrological reading to support what I would write for my post.
Being a modern man, hip to the communications net that encircles our globe, I turned to the Internet for my reading â€“ specifically to: Astrology.com.
After clicking through several pages, filling in the basic â€˜stuffâ€™ requested on each — I worked my way carefully through the relentless blitzkrieg of commerce, avoiding the free-offer-virtual-land-mines. I finally got my free â€˜readingâ€™ in my eager little hands.
I found it amusing, and sharing it with my wife â€“ she made some sort of smart remark about â€œif onlyâ€â€¦ or something like that.
Relevance of this bit of astrological insight not withstanding, it did stimulate this bit of light writing I share with you here â€“ in the form of a tongue-in-cheek poem. It was fun to write — I hope it will be fun to readâ€¦ 😉
NOTE: This illustration is from a friend of mine. I really like it because I am a cusp-child, and this reflects the two signs my birth date borders.
I am Aquarius/Pisces
lover of freedom
all constraints broken through
strong of will
none dictate what I should do
mind of my own
no crowd followed
a path to truth mine to pursue
my life unique
of my construct
its purpose only mine to construe
the leading edge is not taboo
soulâ€™s palette of multi-hue
just and fair
mind open to all thatâ€™s new
and a visionary too
I swear this is real
it has been revealed
astrology.com confirmed it true
