The Littlest Cabaret In the Village

Your spouse cheerfully makes a thoughtless comment that you find hurtful/offensive and then feels surprised at your emotional response.

Your spouse equally cheerfully organises a Marvellous Secret day out in which you leave your child in the care of excellent friends, drives you for 3 hours to Bath, deposits you both in a spa in which pampering treatments have been booked for you and then after these and dinner drives you back 3 hours to London to pick up child and go home and does all this like it's no big deal.

Congratulations. You are married to Sagittarius.

You have given birth to a child with the ambitious stubborness of Napoleon, the malleability of a filing cabinet, who alternates between heart-stopping, parent-aging climbs and deep civic responsibility. Well done, you have spawned Capricorn. Your parenting should probably involve getting out of his/her way. You may also want to invest in some colourful hats to detract from all the bruises on his face from Colonization Of The Furniture Gone Wrong.

On the other hand, at least the bruises on his head nicely coordinate with My Twilight-Coloured Knee. A knee which was achieved when my foot met a slippery bathroom floor - in the terrible frozen tableau that unfolded I looked like I was about to ask the towelracks for their hand in marriage before I looked like I was going to be sick from pain and the thought of this incident occurring in the bathroom of dear friends, and not say a public building in America where I would at least stand a chance of receiving a nice settlement, instead of merely sympathy; for about a day I had a kneecap the size of an egg and my journey to work on Monday was enhanced by crutches. Still there are worse things than medically ordained Rest, and my extended unscheduled time at home is being all kinds of better by the fact that Matei has taken up both mime and opera.

I can't wait to see what kind of improving influence Eurovision Song Contest will have on him.

Aw! What a lovely man you are married to!

He is indeed a most excellent man, and the approach of our third year anniversary seems like a good time to feel happy with my choice.

Hey, it's Michelle, can you add my new LJ?
Hope your knee feels better soon. Thinking of you and hope you and Matei are doing okay.

Oooooh, a game! How fun.

Sorry your comment didn't show up until now Brie, due to the attentions of the Anonymous Japanese Spammer I have set my journal to screen anonymous comments as default (I have to manually unscreen them and I've been on an internet hiatus due to crazy life pressures).

Cancer married to a Sagittarius!
Rarest match!

(Sorry to walk in here from astro community :)

It's always nice to have visitors. :) (I clicked over to your profile and added you as a friend btw, I hope you don't mind)

I've always had a weakness for Sagittarians as their cheerfulness tends to balance out my melancholy tendencies. ;)

What signs are you and your husband?
May. 26th, 2009 06:26 pm (UTC)
Hehe, Sagittarians aren't exactly famous for putting up with melancholy moods :)

What are his other signs?))

Me and my husband are a very textbook astro match - Cancer/Aries moon/Virgo rising or v late Leo rising, not sure) and he's Virgo/Scorpio moon/Cancer rising/Scorpio Venus. I have soft spot for Scorpio moons now.

He's a Sun-Neptune in Sag with an Aries Moon and late Taurus Rising. He's got a Capricorn Venus though and he really has enormous emotional staying power - when he commits, he commits for keeps.

On the other hand he really doesn't have water in his chart (except for Scorpio Mercury) and I have no fire in mine (Cancer Sun, Scorpio Moon, Virgo Rising) so we kind of work in the missing-element sort of way. It's got its share of stresses because we don't speak each other's languages, but we both make each other laugh all the time which makes every situation better. ;)

Sag with Aries Moon and Cancer with Scorp Moon!
Fierce and Intense :)
Although yes, trine individuals tend to be often much more balanced and less stereotypical than they do look on paper))

And I don't know many other fellow Cancerians with Virgo risings! Although I am not too sure of my Virgo status as I'd happily fester in squalor and don't live by filing away papers)))

I adore my Fire Husband, despite the fact that he is almost physically incapable of apologising for anything and would rather try to construct more and more elaborate defense theories than own up to having erred somewhere. On the other hand, he would probably say that he could learn to live without my sensitivity. ;)

I tend to live in squalor most days, since I'm too lazy to tidy more than once a week. (Also too knackered). On the other hand, it really drives me crazy when i don't know when something is, so organisation is more important than tidying.

(I can usually tell a Virgo rising because they have a natural way of feeling really personally offended when someone acts unprofessional. The other thing I've noticed is that people with Virgo rising tend to have naturally clear, good skin and when they feel anxious/upset their stomach starts to knot immediately).

Perhaps you can get a lj-tag 'living with a sagittarius')))

Virgo risings are so underrated that usually their Sun/Moon or even inner planets end up dominating it anyway, more like helping to tone down their Sun-Moon? Apart from actual Virgo sun. One of my first conversations with my then-future husband was like 'Are you not Virgo by any chance???' He didn't know what it even meant, so I gave him birthday range 23Aug-22Sept...I will not even describe the look he gave me. Though that's not how the rest of story went :)) And he's even worse at squalor than me, but does takes care of his own body.
