January 1985. ‘…If you’re sentimental and old-fashioned, pouty and cuddly, chances are you’re a Cancer….’
Many of you peeps reading did not get to experience the gaudy glory that was Eighties Astrology.
Yes, it was an improvement to the medieval tracts that basically said “Aries Men – Great Warriors/Aries Women – Lock Up In Nunnery” or “Man With Mars in 8th House – Seduces Many Maidens, Leaves Them Desirous For More – Women With Mars in 8th House – Venereal Disease Ridden Whore, Combative and Sallow Of Face”. I read a LOT of this crap. So the Eighties was better but still…
Leaving aside the assumption of every relationship being the “opposite” gender and all –
There is an assumption – generic to the time – that men have The Power.
Usually monogamous when in honeymoon phase of marriage, when transiting a masochistic or asexual phase, or when she is suffering from guilt & tries to make up for it by suppressing her libido. Few stay sexually faithful to husbands all their lives. She can rarely resist verifying whether far-out techniques in seduction equal prowess in bed.
Reasons for her to become non-monogamous:
1. Searches new sexual experiences, variations, better lovers.
2. Sexual or emotional starvation.
3. Use of sex as power ploy. (duh)
4. Need for reassurance about her own powers.
5. Misplaced anger at mate.
6. Fear of death.
7. Drug addiction.
8. Submission to powerful fantasy man who can dominate her for a time.
May try for experimentation, but almost never interested in gay lifestyle. She links sex with power, and it’s still men who have the latter.
And, the last time Saturn was at the point it is heading toward now, it was THIS – now is the Saturn Return of then. Read what you want from the cover lines – all these covers are July 1987.
If you are like all w.t.f about this, recall that Saturn Is A Slow Mover – where you have Capricorn, where you have Saturn, Capricorns/Saturn People you are in love or lust with, Pluto in Capricorn until 2024 – ALL OF THIS MOVES SLOW.
The pace of change with Uranus square Pluto in Capricorn (2012-2015) was sped-up and approximately 78% of the population (my estimation) have not gotten to grips with it yet.
Lessons From The Eighties: Never assume that one group is automatically going to hold power forever, eyebrows go in and out of fashion so try not to irrevocably fuq with them as they are hard to grow back, the multi-cultural ideal has been with us for a long time and for good democratic reasons – albeit under stress for obvious reasons, royalty by birth or marriage is not what it used to be and Madonna does in fact have super-powers of career endurance and resilience.
That Cosmo shot above was her Saturn Return – the first one. Her second is in 2016 – she is still here.
Another important Saturn Return from 1987 point: WILL HAIR MOUSSE RETURN?
Honestly, to me nothing says Early Adopter Pluto In Aquarius (2024) like textured hair, back-to-matte complexion and a visage toned by orofacials. I actually think we might have already reached Peak Botox.
It’s like how the central bank have figured out with money – pull one lever, another one goes up. You unload a slush fund of low interest on debtors – the savers pull back.
With Botox, you freeze one muscle from trying to do it’s job and the others try to take over. What if you tone the appropriate muscles via weird exercises that also improve your posture and your neural functioning? What if you never try to do anything permanently to the hair (a straight perm by any name is still a perm – right?) but you just make sure you can fit into your whatever-washed jeans and scrunch more mousse into your hair? And scrub everything with apricot granules to exfoliate?
Orofacial Myology is the new Everything. It is a theory – more soon.
And if we are to take anything from the 80s, we should reformulate mousse and multiculturalism.
