The Sagittarian Child Chess Genius

Child Chess Master

Samuel Reshevsky, age 8, defeating several chess masters at once in France, 1920.

Sagittarius Sun conjunct Mercury, Aries Rising and Moon conjunct Uranus…in Aquarius.

I LOVE how the guy standing on the far left looks like an attention starved Leo willing the camera gaze his way. Imagine being upstaged and outsmarted by an 8 year old lol.

LOL “Leo willing the camera gaze his way.” Recently I read a photography historian talking about “the unprovoked gaze.” It is rare to find a portrait that the person isn’t looking at the camera, the camera “provokes” the gaze back at it. But in this case, the gaze is trying to provoke the camera to look at him. That’s Leo alright. Anyway, this photo vaguely reminds me of an old Aleister Crowley story, I think it’s in “Diary of a Drug Fiend” and I probably have mis-remembered it, although I like how I remember it. Crowley was famous as a… Read more »

Ha, funny Charles. Since you and I have talked about Lynn V. Andrews in the past, I remember that in one of her books she had an experience with her self and her inner voice….she was on a chess table…Do you remember that?

I always forget her name, I had to look her up and then oh yeah I remember, it’s Medicine Woman. That story of the chess board dream sounds familiar, which is odd because I never actually read any of her books. Maybe I heard her read it.

I guess it helps if you’re genius enough to make the game go quickly: i just can’t imagine a Sagittarius sitting around. I used to watch the Scorpio sitting around for AGES pondering the strategy, the strategy.

Haha I’m sure! And while brushing teeth, bathing, watching tv, reading, dressing, driving, dreaming– constant strategy pondering. Few distractions exist meaty enough to bump that needle.

Oh you know it! Can you do the facial expression? I mean, how can someone maintain an eagle-like expression while brushing their goddamn teeth? Quite fascinating to watch. I hope that one of those old guys isn’t a Scorpio, otherwise i know how that

It’s not little Samuel Reshevsky that is the chess wiz. It’s his slightly older sister Serafina who is standing in the middle behind the beard king (notice the intensity of her face as she is sending him the correct moves via telepathy). The memories of her past/parallel lives were strong in her still – she was not going to take another risk and burn at the stake again…but her family needed money and she came up with a plan…

Is it a thing for Aries Rising to be more notable in youth? I’m the only Aries Rising I know and that was the case for me..

If you are Aries rising then at this time with Uranus in 1st (is that the case?…Uranus could possibly be in second)…then you are ripe for a come back…kid…

Yeah! Uranus just passed over my 8ยบASC last year – I’m in the middle of a major major career switch (moving from the arts to computer science.. hello Uranus) and I’m really psyched about it!!

Trying to work the ZZ to the best of my abilities, and super-grateful that Pluto is long past my 4ยบ Cap Midheaven..

When Jupiter moves into Leo this year? Look out, world ๐Ÿ˜‰

Getting some things in order… Think I feel a bit like the chess boy…Let me topple you and fuq all..No, gotta be a bit humble here.. .Hate it tho cuz it’s built on a fantasy and well, shall we say, a game?

Wanted to say that I met with some lovely lawyers today….Was pro-active with the Internal Revenue Service regarding the back taxes I owe..

Oh no honey, you ain’t catchin’ me with my pants down in the zap zone…

As it is, some back tax years are obsolete…Thanks for the ride…had fun at the casino …

I can’t help it if I’ve always lived on the edge…I never know until it all shifts…

That is my “gamble” on Spirit…and we always win…

Aww so awesome! Go little Sagg!

I do think that Go is a superior game compared to chess though. Go is about capturing territories instead of figure heads. Lots of computers have been designed to simulate chess rather easily and provide stiff competition against strong players. However Go computers still can be beaten by humans regularly.

I enjoyed Go as a girl but part of the pleasure was also the feel of the stones, and the black and white forming patterns. Used to play with Virgo sis…you do the martial strategy then admire the aesthetics, win or lose. Playing ANYTHING with Scorpio was like being in Guantanamo or perhaps like “playing” roulette with the KGB. It put me off strategy from a very young age, watching him do it. I quickly developed the strategy of losing chess as quickly as possible, while pretending i wasn’t smart enough, just to infuriate him so he’d lose interest.

what an intense experience Mille! I’m glad i did not have to compete with a virgo or Scorpio to learn those. ๐Ÿ˜€ I suck at both but I do find the games interesting.

Oh lord Mystic, this is just to hilar to pass up…

Think he took his queen to the knight down each board (I have no idea how to play chess), but toppled them all and then turned around to the old buzzards and said “go fuq yourself”…

Lol….

True story…Gem daughter taught her Libran daughter, when two years old, how to flip people off…Gem daughter has Sagg Moon conjunct Scorp Uranus…She was slightly aghast after Libran flipped granny off. I said “I’m just concerned how they will react at pre-school”…

So very awesome! I’m putting a fair bit of that down to the aqua moon—a lot of the chess afficionados I’ve known have had lots of aqua going on.

I think the Aries Rising adds competitiveness, which is helpful for a game of strategy. Against old farts.

Sun/Merc/Uranus/Lilith in Sagg, Moon in Aqua. I’m no chess master but, well, I will just keep it at that ๐Ÿ™‚
