The Surrealist Dr Seuss Had Saturn Onside

Cat in The Hat Surreal

Theodor Geisel’s whimsical surrealist genius earned his work longevity and resonance achieved by few. AKA Dr. Seuss, he had Mercury conjunct Saturn. That may seem austere for someone so playful. But you can see it in his enormous output, professionalism and the endurance of his brand.

Mercury reflects the person’s intellect, sensibility, and eloquence. It is particularly important for writers and creatives.

This is from my Astral DNA birth chart report:

Mercury Conjunction Saturn

In old fashioned astrological textbooks, Mercury conjunct Saturn was said to lend people a dour temperament. Maybe their consciousness does veer more toward stoic philosophy than – say – the Law of Attraction but they’re brilliant at turning their words and thought style into legacy. Saturn is the Time-God and often, long after the Mercury-Saturn person has switched dimensions, their words and ideas live on. Some examples: Dr. Suess, Albert Einstein, Edgar “the Sleeping Prophet” Cayce, Rene Magritte, Colette, Philip K Dick, Emmeline Pankhurst. In contemporary terms, the investigative journalist Ronan Farrow is a fantastic example of the genre. Chuck Palahniuk, the author of Fight Club, is classic Mercury-Saturn: “The things you own end up owning you.”

My fave Dr. Seuss is The Pale Green Pants.

did you know that Dr Seuss also did erotic art? wonder where that is in his chart …….


Go Dog Go was actually written by PD Eastman. So much for doing my homework..


I loved “Go Dog Go” where all the dogs are driving to a party in their party hats. There’s a party atop a large tree. I always wanted to go to that party and have that large piece of cake that was illustrated.

One day I realized that I would love to live inside some of my children’s story books. Like “Martha B. Rabbit”. In that book there are fairies and a magical forest…

Why can’t life just be like it is in a story book?


My favorite is Hop on Pop, with many others as close seconds.. it was one of my first books growing up. Here’s a neat bio of Seuss that I just came across… interesting man.

I love Star Bellyed Sneechies


” Oh, the places you’ll go!”, that’s may fave!
” You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”

Also , today is my younger son’s birthday…the magical 8!
The baby that was” not possible”; is eight today! My precocious fish boy :))
Him sharing his birthday with Dr. Seuss, makes sooo much sense!!!!! ha ha!


No comment there cept what a remarkable man.
Coles Funny Picture book 1 2 & 3 were my childhood
No 1 was the best. Found a treasured antique copy so fragile.
The breakiners threw it on the floor OPENED & pages creased!
They sure knew how to hurt my inner child:)
Tiger Lilly was a childrens book i remember with great illustrations.

I learnt to read with “One fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish…”

And “Green Eggs and Ham”

My friend had a reading from Dr Seuss at her wedding, it was lovely:)


So did I. Bro recently tried to rebuild our collection for his kids – could only get them in the states on a business trip. Just realised, most of my family adore ham and eggs (known as MNX) – probably comes from Sam I Am!

I LOVE reading Fox in Sox – very fast sans mistakes. Agree V-V – from the paddle battle to the noodle eating poodles…….!


Yertle the Turtle…perfect analogy for current economic meltdown…Hail to the Suess! Hail to little turtle Mac! full text here But, as Yertle, the Turtle King, lifted his hand And started to order and give the command, That plain little turtle below in the stack, That plain little turtle whose name was just Mack, Decided he’d taken enough. And he had. And that plain little lad got a bit mad. And that plain little Mack did a plain little thing. He burped! And his burp shook the throne of the king! And Yertle the Turtle, the king of the trees, The… Read more »

My 7 year old son’s fave at the moment is Fox in Sox. and I have to read it FAST!!! which is all good, I rock at the tweetle beetles having a paddle battle in a puddle bits. But the chicks with bricks with clocks that tock all end up with dicks in socks etc etc and my boy just rolls around laughing wanting “the rude bits” over and over!! Great bonding session but I wonder how the yr 2 teacher goes when he asks for the funny bits that you leave out that my mum says Mrs ****


My fave is The Lorax..a great eco story too.
