GEMINI - The Chatterbox (May 21 - June 20) Smart and witty. Outgoing, very chatty. Lively, energetic. Adaptable but needs to express themselves. Argumentative and outspoken. Like change. Versatile. Busy, sometimes nervous and tense. Gossips. May seem superficial or inconsistent. Beautiful physically and mentally.
I am always amazed at how accurate these descriptors can be but as a rational thinking human being I know I project my own desires into them and they are just general enough to seem to be true. Nothing however can accurately describe in a few words the complexity that is the human animal...or Big Daddy. Even the Chinese Zodiac seems to fit my personality.
Chinese Zodiac - The Snake
Depth and charisma make the Snake a formidable presence. You tend to spend a lot of time in your head, but you are not a worrier. Rather, you pass your quiet time in reflection and contemplation. This, together with your love of learning, is what gives you such great depth. Of all the signs of the Chinese zodiac, yours is most closely associated with wisdom. You probably have many interests and an insatiable thirst for knowledge, which result in an increasingly complex persona. In fact there is always more to learn about you. Just when people think they know you, they find out you have developed a totally new interest. Not only that they discover you have quickly grasped the subject
Although you are more than willing to share your knowledge, you have a penchant for secrecy when it comes to your personal life. This adds an aura of mystery to your already commanding presence. Like the Dragon, the Snake is a karmic sign, which means you are likely to experience lots of extreme highs and lows in your life.
More than any other sign, the Snake knows how to present itself in the most favorable light. You are rarely flamboyant or ostentatious. Rather, you are probably fully aware of your karmic status and don’t feel a need to impress anybody. But, when the spirit moves you, you will appear as the most dazzling personality on the scene.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
