WOAH. I love this. In an honestly w.t.f way.
How i found it: looking for a picture to illustrate my soon-to-posted profound Jupiter-Saturn rant.
It’s interesting as Barbara Taylor Bradford is one of the most successful self-made women authors in history. Way before uber Leo J.K. Rowling came up with her genius Harry Potter series, BTB was quietly amassing a major fortune via her wits. She’s a multiple Taurus – Sun, Mercury, Venus and Chiron with a Mars-Neptune-Jupiter in Virgo augmenting. Most of her books are steamy old-school romances involving a girl from a humble background who via her pure raw mojo, business acumen and hotness rises to greatness, with a big-deal epic romance woven in as well. She’s best known for Woman Of Substance. But she also, i know see, churned out an icky (from the looks of this) Perfect Wife series.
This looks like wifie really wants to fuq the father in law, bank manager, pastor or who ever in hell the older dude is. Or kill him. Is she a double agent from the land of Lilith? Like she is assessing his pulse with her little manicured deceptively compliant paw. If you don’t know about Lilith – the first wife of Adam before there was Eve – see Bitchcraft on the Shop page. BTB has Lilith in Gemini, independence carved out via ingenuity, amongst other things.
Even the flowers in this picture look kind of sad. Even allowing for the strange design values of ye olde vintage etiquette books, this is a strange picture. Lilith is trine Uranus this week – fierce, individuated and reinventive. Thoughts on this book please?
