And…I read the Abba reforming and doing a virtual tour story as being more like The Congress, that Robin Wright movie where she is turned into a virtual version of herself and has to fight her way back to a Hollywood where, as a post-menopausal woman, she is potentially less valid/real than her cartoon self. It’s a weirdly brilliant movie and anyway, I initially thought that Abba had been hologrammed.
So what’s up? Maybe it’s resurgent creative energy and their genuine desire to work on a complex, demanding production with their former bandmates who are mostly also their former partners. Maybe it’s a tax bill. The royalties on their Seventies albums must be insane – their music is easily the most replayed in history.
Abba is, of course, iconic. Forming in April 1974 with Jupiter in Pisces square Neptune in Saggo, they’re super Jupiter. They were the first group from a non-English speaking country to consistently top the pops. They wore gaudy, fabulous costumes like they were disco pajamas and projected pure ebullience.
Given that Jupiter is going to be conjunct Neptune next year and that it’s the Chiron Return of Abba’s formation, I think they should go all out with this. Presciently, the lyrics for one of their greatest hits – Fernando – included poignant lines about being ‘old and gray’ but recalling the fateful night they crossed the Rio Grande.
If this is referring to the American-Mexican war of the 19th Century and not a tax refuge, they could make this totally topical: I like the idea of them performing it on the border on November’s Lunar Eclipse, with Britney, drones – disarmed of course – dancing Fernandos and fresh take on Swedish athleisure with spangles.
HELLO! The Personal Daily Horoscopes, Astrology Reports and the Current Astro Influences Widget are affected by a technical issue at the momen.
I’m so sorry – I’ve been frantically trying to identify the issue (granular explanation below if you’re interested) was also ill so my messaging was a bit slack on this. It will be fixed asap and I will update soon.
Granular: The site grows – for which I am grateful – and needs to be upgraded to a new server every 15 months or so. The migration two days ago went smoothly (and the site will shortly be heaps faster) and everything worked…but a sub-domain that contains the Atlas + Timezone data has some quirks and one particular file within that is not loading. Unfortunately, it is a pivotal file that feeds in data like daylight savings alterations, geomapping, and so on. It can’t even be opened, as such.
It took a while to identify the issue as the new server wouldn’t give the developers access to the root server so that was frustrating and maybe it looks like I’m being cavalier from the outside but actually I was sitting at my screen, lapsing in and out of consciousness, trying to stay compos mentis to get the access. Then, because it was not an obvious glitch – it was one of those things that ‘should’ work but demonstrably is not – there was a further delay. Now, we know what it is and I am hoping it will be back within hours.
