My Gemini friend found these plush toys, while doing her every morning, quick scan of her current fave, hipster-ish websites.
We both love these, and I remember you writing about a class you held, where you got people to act out certain planets. So I think these dolls (with some astro appropriate modifications) would make an astrology consultation absolutely hilarious, and maybe a new form of therapy?
My Mars doll (Sagittarius) would be telling squaring Sun doll (Virgo), that her problem is she needs to chill out. Order some pizza, have a few drinks, spin a world globe and wherever my finger lands…jump online and book a flight NOW. Sun doll would respond with a lecture on empty calories, savings plans, and the current travel warnings for whatever-stan/land, while trying to ignore Mars doll’s best buddy, Uranus, who would totally not be helping the situation. I’m not sure how they’ll work things out. I’ll need to schedule a few appointments.
It would be funny to watch though, right?!
Oh, and Hipster Gemini friend has almost everything in Gemini and Sagittarius, so her dolls would just talk crap, until she passes out…or sees something shiny!
The Supportive Virgo
Dear Supportive Virgo,
Yes, genius idea. Is the Saturn toy big enough to sort of pick neurotically at or even perhaps punch around a bit? Generally speaking gestalt (which is what you’re referring to) involves the harming of inanimate cushions/toys as they are the proxy for, i don’t know, Popes and things.
We could definitely do something with this – by “we” i mean us. We could have huge boxes of toys, dolls for each signs, Japanese Slippers to drink and we’d all wear Muu-Muus. It would be cathartic and calorie burning plus hopefully count as business coaching (some say you can’t succeed in work or business UNTIL you’ve dealt with your Saturn issues) so we could write off the cost of the toys, whacko woo-woo room we’d rented, Muu-Muus etc.
Oh and while i am here crapping on about plush toys – i met an extremely macho classic Aries recently. A medico, he boasted affably about how when HE walks into the room of his local Mercedes dealership, he educates the people who work there, with his superior torque knowledge. But you know, quick-witted, good hearted, professional, sports car obsessed classic Aries guy…APART FROM a plush toy collection. Not one. Several. Dozens. Displayed. W.T.F. does this mean?
