Venus in Furs poster

“…And yet a restless, always unsatisfied craving for the nudity of paganism,” she interrupted, “but that love, which is the highest joy, which is divine simplicity itself, is not for you moderns, you children of reflection. It works only evil in you. As soon as you wish to be natural, you become common. To you nature seems something hostile; you have made devils out of the smiling gods of Greece, and out of me a demon. You can only exorcise and curse me, or slay yourselves in bacchantic madness before my altar.

 

“And if ever one of you has had the courage to kiss my red mouth, he makes a barefoot pilgrimage to Rome in penitential robes and expects flowers to grow from his withered staff, while under my feet roses, violets, and myrtles spring up every hour, but their fragrance does not agree with you. Stay among your northern fogs and Christian incense; let us pagans remain under the debris, beneath the lava; do not disinter us. Pompeii was not built for you, nor our villas, our baths, our temples. You do not require gods. We are chilled in your world…”

This is one of my favourite books ever! so I was hoping to get some venus in furs action this easter weekend…

No it was all about work
However an in tune with the cosmos

One model was a monochrome harlequin puppet -with bondage twine strings- and the other was all platform stilettos, tux’s and waist cinchers.

I had a rutilated quartz egg once. Somewhat of a phonetic pun.

James Darren!! OMG, he was my first true love crush at puberty.
Sent him a letter with a lipstick kiss cellotaped to prevent smudging.
Received a photo back in return. A simple life in simpler times.

I have a very heavy obsidian egg.

Yes, well, the Frugens happily refer to my Feng Shui as my Kung Pao, or something like that. I think witchery is so sexy, is like tuning into a precious ore buried near the center of the earth… or Pluto in my case. This year my FS mistress has me rainbow obsidianed out and as she so stressed that they be larger so as to be more effective, I have complied. Which resulted in one of the Frugens going, “My My you DO have a lot of big black balls lying round.” hahahaha And they say size doesn’t matter..tsk tsk…

now that is a great substitute name for feng shui…unpredictable pisces here …couldnt resist the name change…
For me, it’s the general lack of curiosity that surprises me more than anything else. it’s not like we all have to believe the same everything.
I suppose a lot of this exploration for me is quite personal as well, so i probably feel a bit bashful about talking about, say, metaphysical things much as well.

i guess that’s why we all like to hang out on this blog kung-pao pisces…. (haha LOVE IT!!)… because most peeps in the real world lack that general curiosity as you say. I’m always thinking about astrology and observing what’s going on and sometimes it’s hard to keep my thoughts to myself at work. Occasionally i’ll blurt something about Merc retro if someone’s having issues with the server or email and everyone stops and turns to look at me like i’m an ALIEN or something.

yeah, i spout a few astro-tidbits to my mates sometimes, can’t resist, but only when pertinent, such as discussing love life dynamics or trying to understand a friend / lover better.
gonna stick with kung pao for one more post … there’s a sechuan dish called kung-pao chicken – which is also why i love that name – 110% chillies and some chicken in there too (i think) 😉

yes, you can see them thinking ‘oh she’s normally so sensible, how weird she cites astrology’. (but they are too polite to say anything, i hate f***ing polite, LOL!)(why not have a bloody argument/discussion, what the hell is wrong with that, oh dear might hurt someone’s fragile little ego)

i can’t be bothered to explain or persuade anymore. closed minds, booooorrrrrringg!!

tee hee… it’s okay HMBOTS. I hate polite too. Not that i’m rude or anything but i just tell it like it is.

ooh yes, scorpbot, life get shorter and shorter and there’s so much to do, no time to suffer fools gladly!

(and funnily enough, peeps seem mostly to quite like ‘tell it how it is’. also could be called giving strength and leadership, methinks!)

I work with someone who is sort of interested in astrology – she always asks me about the new moon etc. I’m always mentioning Mystic Medusa and the blog, so when i bought the Astro Scapes 2009 i let her have a quick peep, thinking she might buy a copy herself and she said “oh that looks interesting, i might photocopy the Libra part” I was appalled, to say the least. She earns twice as much as i do!! I really, really, really hate tight-arses. I snatched the book from her hands and said “you may as well buy it,… Read more »

and anyway Scorpbot, ‘just photocopy the libra part’ betrays her total ignorance of anything and of course ignorance brings its own rewards, LOL! so her comeuppance is contained within her own meanness. how satisfying!!

and yes, i can’t abide tightarseness!

and refusing to admit the notion of anything that is ‘not scientific’ is the most ego driven, patch of time statement ever, i expect they were making it in the 10th century too and they knew everything then of course…………..LMAOQ

Great name Kung Pao, it reminds me of a Steve Oedekerk movie Kung Pow, he basically takes this really bad 70’s Hong Kong Kung fu movie and edits himself in..I got it for my sons 9th birthday party and it went down a treat. If your ever in the mood for a silly very funny movie its great. To give you some idea, he directed the early ‘Pet Detective’ movies.

Yes, and wots worse is that non-understanding peeps then decide to reframe their entire opinion of you as if you have now decided to invite them to Mars. OR the hard-nosed won’t-believe-anything arses who are only willing to accept anything if there’s reams and reams of documented scientific study on it.

I say, if the Kung Pao works for you, then believe. Even if one were to argue that all it does is put one in a more positive frame of mind, then I don’t see the problem, no?

hear hear FA, re astrology…i also have several innocent crystals …nothing too scary, around my house/room/including under my pillow on occasion. the mega straight Cancer housemate and slightly trad Toro boyf (who i hope to gradually tint with cool, out-there themes) look at me sideways re this. If they took more than a passing disinterest in my bookshelves they’d realise it went WAY past crystals…

See.. now WHY can we not launch fuq-off speeches in the same very elegant vein??? I LOVE that, “we are chilled in your world”…

I wish I could spout this each time anyone looked at me as if I were the neighborhood fly by night psychic charlatan for believing in astrology.
