I just wrote a ranty-and-ravey email to my favorite writing friend about, well, emails and phone conversations and communication in general. My Facebook friend, Lauren Miranda Gilbert, recently said, “I think many have the 3rd house/Gemini issue these days – a kind of nervous energy that has us flitting about, seeking distraction outside of ourselves. And then we get soul sick.” I think she has a point. Both the eclipses and the nodes are in Gemini and Sag right now. Which brings to mind the only bit of Allen Ginsberg I know. But how I love it:
“I am writing millions of letters a year… I correspond with hopeful messengers in Detroit, I am taking drugs and leap at my postman for more correspondence, Man is leaving the earth in a rocket ship, there is a mutation of the race, we are no longer human beings, we are one being, we are being connected to itself, it makes me crosseyed to think how, the mass media assemble themselves like congolese Ants for a purpose”
I hope I got the quote correct. The only place I ever saw it is here.
I was looking at Mr. Ginsberg’s chart: Sun conjunct Mercury in Gemini in the third. I bet he did write a lot of letters and waited for the postman. I wish he had lived to have fun on the Internet.
