So given that children tend to enquire from whence they came way before one has an explanation prepped, what do you tell them?
I got my son to watch the DVD of Where Did I Come From? when he was four and then asked if he had any questions. I think i was chanelling my Mars in Virgo. “Only one,” he said. “Did you have to do that to get me?” He’s Cancerian and they tend to be a bit funny about their mothers.
And when I airily explained the biology of it to my daughter, she sighed with total Gemini cynicism and rolled her big blue eyes. “I know all that boring stuff. I’m more interested in where i was before that.”
Of course, it’s way later when you get the tricky questions: “So, have you ever had a threesome?” “Why did you leave X?” “Would you consider yourself hot?” “What is a fetish?” “Why do people dress up as the opposite sex?” “What is an X rated movie?” “Is it true that the Dad of Jesus is a Ghost?” “How long were you a virgin for?”
SO what is the answer? Virgoan precision? Absolute Saggo candour? Leo-Libra Social Engineering? Gemini-Piscean fibbing-procrastination?
