Christian Dada Fall 2013
"Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched."

gemini - they need someone there to fill the ‘twin’ role, who they can share everything with but they also want to be independent and alone
yes yes yes yes
i think gemini’s need this watch. time really melts away under the hostage of a thought encased mind. something always manages to distract them, excite them or stop them dead in their tracks out of fascination. time has a habit of getting away from gemini - or so it would seem. their lack of organization skills typically leave them in a disoriented frenzy where life is a constant state of rush and flux. it’s all too easy for them to get lost in a book or lose hours on the phone to a friend, and before they know it - they’re late again, even if they had the whole day to get ready! most of their friends have learned to accept their pathologically unpunctuality and understand the gemini will arrive ‘around a certain time’.
