Saint Scorpio

Debbie Harry as Tutankhamun

“The good Christian should beware of astrologers. The danger already exists that astrologers have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and confine man in the bonds of Hell.”
St. Augustine of Hippo

 

Lol, right?  I mean, even in the Dark Ages, that would be a pretty fuqed up business model. And what would the straight ladies do if the men  were all in hell? It does not make sense. But I think St Augustine is the same dude who famously prayed “Oh Lord, give me chastity and continence but not yet,” Scorpio, you understand.

Still, some things never change. I read someone from the vatican recently denouncing Harry Potter, yoga and Chinese Medicine. Three of my favorite things. Pfft.

Whoa.. weren’t the celebrated magi three zoroastrian astrologist mystics following yonder star? The whole saviour reborn thing is based on astrology… Frankensce and myrrh are probably eastern medicines, of a kind, for all I know

Ya, Augustine was the one who, because of his own sexual hang-ups, got a myth like the Garden of Eden all mixed up. Rather than it being a “Rite of Passage” myth where humans would gain more awareness and independence from the big daddy in the sky, he turned it around to where we should feel guilty for making our own choices and live in fear of the degradation we’d bring upon ourselves if we disobey. The result has been hundreds of years of expecting higher standards from ourselves and those around us that hardly anyone could live up to… Read more »

Just don’t get me started on religion. I think my 6 year old daughter all those years back came home from school the one afternoon and said
‘mum, I don’t believe in this God thing’
Really ? Says I Why Not?
‘Because it’s just there to make people do as they are told and make them scared!’
Pretty astute for a young un. Since then she hasn’t changed her mind and will go on the head up Amnesty the way she’s going!!!!

My Aries 8 year old said the same thing. I played devil’s advocate with her: “well, how was the world created?” etc. She said “Look – I know there is no God because no one person is in control of eveything around here!” She’s got neptune and mars in Aquarius 9th. Lol

Brought up in a very Anglican household and told that horoscopes were the work of the devil and psychics were a direct line to hell. It took me 47 years to overcome this fear and consult a psychic.

Heavy dark eye make-up, on plastic, directly looking to camera (and was she directed to ‘pretend dead’?) is very powerful and with that, I’m reminded of the great piece you wrote about Mick Jagger as patron saint for Leo’s. There’s such a dramatic quality to Scorpio that is different to the Leo. Living the Leo Dream is case in point.

Look, it’s like this.
Scorpio = Sinner OR Saint.
And we often miraculously convert from One to the other without so much as a “how’s your Father”
We’ll have nun of that in between monk-y business.
We just don’t do grey darling…

🙂 i think like the pisceans, the inconsistencies are only present to a certain depth of skin. the core is consistent. ish.

If i had to make an offering to any saint, a saint Scorpio would be one of them. kind of like the cool person in your life who’s see it all, and can offer actual guidance based on the realness.

Well, I wouldn’t be surprised if they’d found a fully staffed TCM clinic, handweaved yoga mats and a home cinema/library with all of HP inside vatican … after all, it (oh like lots of other things … ) has to be very thoroughly tested and tried before judging it as evil, no?

Had a paedo priest tell me this after watching ‘dangerous liaisons’ at the presbytery. “We must be wise to the ways of evil” he said while sipping his plonk with pill chaser.

Mystic, nah this does not mean all men would be in hell. The Bible actually says that God created the lights in the skies to be signs. I think the problem arose when man- as in mankind- chose to look to the stars for guidance; rather than God. Hence the idea of the spirit being darkened and confined to hell- as there would be no hope that is found in God. I think the problem is that it is mankind/ humans that create all these rules and regulations. The Bible’s main message is live, hope and grace. I think it… Read more »

Ha so it was the Scorp rising that connected you to the ex, if he still is excommunicated. Attracted to Caps from my Cap rising and perhaps Venus there a well. A man has to be as handsome as or as wealthy as but not both.
Wrote Buddhist-Christian on census in around 2000 AD.

Lo Pegs – yeah the Ex Scop is excommunicated. He popped out if the woodwork last week just as warned by Mystic. Came to watch moves with me! Out of the blue- just like at. He was zombied out – said on methadone trying to quit heroin blah blah. I want nothing of it- his lies, manipulation etc. he tried to seduce me as he must have gathered I had no ad any action for yonks. He knows I am such a flesh creature so tried to manipulate me. Jerk.

Also what about the money laundering scandal in the vatican, how many millions stuffed into a suitcase smuggled from dunno where?
Priest told us at age 13 tongue kissing was a mortal sin and if we tongue kissed and died sans confession we would go to hell, another one told me, as we were passing the Theosophical Society bookshop that they are mis lead. He was an exorcist so i guess he would know. So whatever the vatican says….do the opposite.
Madame Blavatsky WAS suss though 🙂

Guess when it comes to choosing a suitable pet you need to decide if you’d prefer the occasional bit of rough tongue in your ear, or frequent enthusiastic sniffing around your crotch.

The hypocrisy is mind blowing, that’s why so many have left Catholicism.
No condoms for African catholics. Who can get their head around THAT.

Ridiculous- again man made rules. There is a new wave Of Catholics Pegs- quite radical- not in a nutty way but more a celebration of life and love. More compassion towards where others are at etc. no condoms in Africa where HIV is a major issue is crazy. This is a body of men stuck in the past.
On a side note do you know they found pottery condoms! The mind boggles! Surely they would be cold and could have broken….. Hmm then again pottery does induct heat yes? ; >

Its not really crazy when the HIV is going bankrupt, statistics show a very steep rise in population. The predictions they made have not come to pass. Many people stuck themselves with the blood and never developed it. Many nurses prick there fingers every year working with these patients and theres only one shady documented case of someone testing postive afterwards because of a needle prick.

ALS, the reason i became so absorbed in Tantra as a healing modality in ’93 was because i spent a year living with an hiv+ man in French Polynesia, a place at the time that had no information whatsoever about it. Long story but i thought ‘if sex an kill-so can it cure’ a homeopathic philosophy. It sent a global message that we need to explore this thing called sex Idealistic Sagg thought they could cure the world of it by the practises set out by Margot Anand. Strangely there has been no publicity the last 10 years at all.… Read more »

The only thing that worrys me about the “run for the cure” mentality is the fact that the fundamentals on this are wrong. All this find a cure stuff. There is no cure its political.. the cure is having a good environment sans poppers and other harsh destroying immune system addictives. Its a harmless passenger virus like many we have left over from ancestry which many things activate the test. we need to look at the evangelization of medicine if were ever gonna bring ourselves to stop wasting energy on Trojan Horses.

St Augustine shows lack of knowledge as astrology has been used for at least 3.000 years AT LEAST, i mean what else was there to do at night time ‘cept look up at the glittery things in the sky.

Didn’t Dylan write a song about St. Augustine?

Vatican seems to freak about anything that may liberate a person’s thinking.
You know i still remember as a child (and the only catholic in the family) my Nana having to find fish for me on a Friday as was dictated by the church. Going to confession at 7 years old and having nothing to confess so i lied to the priest and said i had stolen a rubber from a class mate.
Bizarre.Forced into ‘sin’ by confession…lol.

The last (only?) time I went to confession I was about that age. I told the priest I broke my mother’s china doll and lied about it. He laughed and said he thought I’d be ok and prescribed a few Hail Marys. I thought “Charlaton – I lied!!!” Lol. I hated having my sins poo-pooed away from me. I earned them, lol.

Re: Dylan Indeed he did!
I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine – my Scorp bf loves Dylan so I hear a lot of his stuff – like it or not.

Off topic -not that I can stand the “Royal” family too much but…. who thinks that William and Catherine’s baby will be a Leo – that would be fitting wouldn’t it ??? A Leo as a future King or Queen – or would it be sad if they all got chucked out and they would be a miserable Leo with no throne….anyway just a pondering – back to Scorps

Pi there was an excercise on how to drop ego by not using ‘I’ in writing. That would include ‘me’ as well. Very difficult as it is nature to compare things.
Another was to not have an ‘opinion’ for a day.

Apparently he goes off for wanders around places when he is on tour. Residents saw a scruffy old dude wandering around their neck of the woods looking in at some house that was for sale and they called the cops. The cop did know who Bob Dylan was – but Dylan had no ID and he didn’t look like the Bob Dylan the cop had seen in pictures – so she thought it was just some crazy geezer having her on. Even her sergeant didn’t believe it was him when he saw him – so it wasn’t just her. Dylan… Read more »

I’ve been doing lots of thinking about ageism lately. WTF. I get driven crazy with people thinking that anyone beyond looking youthful are nutters or crazy. Dylan would have to be one of the most inspiring people ever … always was, always will be. And there are plenty of people beyond the age of 50 who are doing just fine, thank you.

Where I live there are PLENTY of young people that look like (and are) crazy nutters, so I don’t think it is just the over 50 set that get that label.
And inspiring he may be, but Dylan can’t handle all the OTT hero worship thrown at him – that’s why he feels the need to disguise himself just so he can go out and have a life

You either look good or you don’t regardless of age. Still wear a bikini and Converse hi-tops (just not together), still like my spliff and hoping 70 will be the new 50 🙂
