The Entrance to the Manor



The month begins, and sentientance begins.  Open your life, your world to the five glorious senses that most of us were blessed with.  Go for a walk, open your eyes to small things. See things that you often overlook. Georgia O'Keefe the artist said that no one really takes the time to look at a flower.  It is too small, too intricate, to really see it unless we take the time to truly look. 

Sarah VanBreathnaught of 'Simple Abundance' fame, tells us to 'go to a hat shop and try on different hats.  Feel the textures in your fingers.  Visit a fabric shop and don't buy anything at all, just enjoy the beauty of the fabrics and the textures and combinations.   I thought it a wonderful idea. Not only for women, but for men as well. 

How often do you really find a fabric that feels great against your skin?  Shopping lately, I've been stunned with the wonderful things they are doing with texture and feel.  Silk and rayons paired with roughly hewn linen and natural fibers.  Simply stunning.  Use the adage, "April showers, bring May flowers"... and find something to enliven your sense of sight or touch.

This was a personality test I took.  Some is true I suppose, but then, who ever has a clear view of themselves  If you know me, see what you think.
Character and Personality:

 The following paragraphs concern the study of MARSHA's personality, as    induced by the positions of the planets and Rising sign. Some of the  character traits mentioned may seem completely contradictory and incompatible. This is because the rough-hewn personality is a rarity.

 Usually, individuals are made up of a subtle orchestration of many different tones or aspects. However, serious introspection or detailed analysis should make it possible to distinguish the opposing or diverging images comprising MARSHA's overall character, and perhaps, in time, find the best and most harmonious way to integrate them.

 An extroverted intuitive (to use C.G. Jung's terms), MARSHA is open to the reality of the world, objects, and others. She has a special duality to her mind, which is made up of equal parts of intellectual resources and sensitivity, giving her great intuition and humanism. As a function of this latter, she has a great sense her fellow woman, and the oracular art of divining people's unconscious wishes and motivations - in fact, her advice is often sought. In material terms, it gives her a talent for locating lost objects, and a spirit of discovery and invention. Overall, MARSHA welcomes the signs arriving from the outer world in a positive and liberal way, and even incites them to promise more than they can
 provide. However, when something does not satisfy her, she has the ability to cheer herself up rapidly, and is quick to discover whatever positive aspects it may present. This involves a process of readaptation which requires formidable ego transformations, and they are the challenge for MARSHA. It is up to her to renew herself, to behave in such a way as to drain her environment of fearsome or threatening aspects. 

 MARSHA is usually perceived as an idealist. Deep within herself, she senses the presence of a " new life. " It is the crucible of her ideal and all her hopes. The " new life " may assume the garb of various philosophies of liberation; whatever they may be, they all endeavor to revitalize alienated modern woman, oppressed and downtrodden by Western civilization. However, in her striving to free herself and her fellow women from a social contract based on the power of sheer lucre and corrupt lobbies, MARSHA displays a singular inclination to depend upon the very social forces she intends to topple. The reason for this is that, because she is quite sociable, the only thing she instinctively grasps profoundly is social action and organization. 

Her perception of her own personality is vague or even negative. In fact, her grandiose personal gestures are motivated by a need to hide her unavowed feelings of inferiority and, at times, her fear of strong personalities. But she is above all an idealist. Hope is the prime mover of her spirit, and she is continually traveling along the axis of the hope/despair polarity. As she applies herself to ignoring whatever is impervious to her aspirations, MARSHA should acquire some certainty of what is still possible - for her and the world. In fact, in relation to her ideal, MARSHA behaves realistically, although others are unable to perceive her realism because she expresses herself in such an unconventional and eccentric fashion. 

 She is passionately committed to the quest and research she has initiated, and will pursue it with determination if not fury. She judges and defines herself in opposition to society, and human relations are vital to the evolution of her personality. An elitist, she does not believe in human equality, preferring individuality. She seeks a way to unite them without abolishing their differences. She would like to create a utopian community with no ideological imperatives, a self-ruled entity which would recognize its own spirit as the only authority. Her definition of friendship is spiritual love, because it establishes a subtle, vast, and delicate web of bonds, not only between people, but between people and things. She imagines a vow of true friendship as a form of freedom which reassures the freedom of others, instead of threatening it. However, she should become aware that this ideal harmony, which is often rather difficult to put into practice, sometimes hides an unavowed fear of deep commitment to another person. For this reason, her love life is among the more erratic. 

 Warm and giving to the world in general, in certain special cases she may become cold or even distant. She is determined to elude any perceived threat to her freedom, and picks her way through a world of paradoxes and contradictions. Her sensuality is associated with her imagination, and she loves people not for what they are in reality, but for the way her imagination transfigures them. The result is many a cruel disillusionment. But when she falls in love, it's for real.

 MARSHA finds her work extremely rewarding. Daily life and routine activities are excellent sources of self-fulfillment for her.

 MARSHA tends to live in an imaginary world; the distant and abstract sometimes interests her more than what is right at hand and realistic.

 At the time of MARSHA's birth, her Rising Sign was located in Scorpio (the Scorpion), while the Sun was passing through the constellation of Aquarius (the Water Bearer). A summary of the various clues mentioned above provide MARSHA's personality profile; the following key words distill the essence of her character and indicate certain contradictions which may be sources  of tension:

 Pugnacity - Independence - Charisma - Rebelliousness - Dignity - Originality - Shrewdness - Fluctuation - Concentration - Irritability - Optimism - Inventive spirit - Common sense - Sense of paradox. 

 Tactless and almost severe, lively and irritable, rebellious and haughty, MARSHA is bound to have complex and ambiguous relations with other people. She feels she is an exceptional human being, and her goal is to make her originality and creativity manifest. Convinced of her superiority and the originality of her mind, her faith in her solitary and individualistic lifestyle is never shaken. Her inventive, inquiring mind is much gratified thereby. Her sense of contradiction and taste for paradox will be a source of trouble in her relationships with other people. But she is bound to explore new horizons, far from the beaten track, in the hinterlands of invention and innovation.

 Born in the three days prior to the New Moon's appearance, MARSHA is said to be of the " Balsamic Moon " type. This soli-lunar configuration gives her a spiritualistic character closely attached to generous humanitarian ideals. She is sometimes sorely tried to limit herself to the narrow scope of individual ambition. Indeed, she aims for a humanitarian ideal which would include the outcasts and the unfortunate: she fervently hopes the meek will inherit the Earth. To bring about this ideal, she is likely to seize every resource placed at her disposal: physical effort, money (if she has it), speech, her writings, and her poetic or artistic talents. However, she should be wary of her unconscious guilt feelings. Actually, there is no reason for her to devote herself to her mission entirely; a simple daily effort should suffice to express her philosophy and free her conscience. Usually, the three days preceding the New Moon will be time in the monthly lunar cycle most favorable to her activities and her general energy level.

 Due to the influence of Jupiter dominating her birth chart, MARSHA has undeniable social ambition and many resources with which to achieve it (see CAREER POTENTIAL). Relatively confident in herself and her abilities, she has the potential to be a leader and chief. It therefore seems probable that she will rise to success. However, she should question herself about what sort of success she seeks, and at what price. She should be aware that the taste of victory may be bitter if she finds she has sacrificed other aspects of life, like love, friendship, or creativity, to obtain it. She must consciously select what she is willing to invest in order to secure honor, money, and social consideration.
