As a statement was put out that Madonna and Guy Ritchie are divorcing, after 7 1/2 years of marriage, my thoughts turned to a talk on relationship astrology at the Lodge last Monday night. The speaker said that most relationships last 7 years, a quarter of a Saturn cycle.
One of Guy Ritchie’s reasons for divorcing Madonna is her obsession with the Kaballah and, as a confirmed atheist, I sympathize. However recently someone dumped me apparently because of my interest in astrology which he said was “as bad as being religious”… that really hurt because I thought of him a friend too. (Although it may have had more to do with the fact that I’m not 25, a size 8, and with a brain the size of a pea. In the immortal words of Sharon Stone…”If you have a vagina and an attitude in this town, then that’s a lethal combination. “)
Men don’t like you to get upset or emotional. If you do then you are ‘mental’. Right. Being fucked, if I may speak so boldly, means having somebody inside your bodily cavities!!!! Literally inside you. Women are supposed to take this lightly? Excuse me if I don’t get over it in ten seconds.
I don’t believe in astrology, I’m interested in it, simply because it seems to work. I don’t know why, it just does. I view it’s unerring accuracy with fascination. There are times when I am more interested… Recently, with the credit crunch, which has been predicted by astrologers for decades, astrology has proved itself worth a closer look don’t you think?
