THE LOVERS OF SCORPIOS

SCORPIO FIRESCORPIO IS THE EIGHTH SIGN OF THE ZODIAC, AND THE SECOND WATER SIGN (AFTER CANCER).  WEIGHTY AND INTENSE, ALTHOUGH SCORPIO IS RULED BY PLUTO, WITH MARS AS ITS CO-RULER IT SHARES CERTAIN AGGRESSIVE CHARACTERISTICS WITH ARIES.  SCORPIO SYMBOLICALLY DEMONSTRATES THE POWER OF MIDDLE AGE, & A CORRESPONDING ABILITY TO DIRECT & CONTROL THE LIFE AROUND IT.SCORPIO PALMSCORPIO CAN BE SEEN AS AN EVOLUTIONARY STAGE BETWEEN LIBRA & SAGITTARIUS THAT TRANSMUTES GRACIOUS, SOCIAL AND DIPLOMATIC ENERGIES INTO PHILOSOPHICAL, CHANGEABLE AND FIERY ONES.  PLUTO GRANTS VOLCANIC SEXUAL ENERGIES AS WELL AS AN INSIGHT INTO THE MYSTERIES OF METAMORPHOSIS & TRANSFORMATION.SCORPIO WORLDTHE SCORPIO I PERIOD TAKES INTENSITY AS ITS CENTRAL IMAGE.  THE DAYS WHICH COMPRISE SCORPIO I ILLUSTRATE THE UNDERLYING THEME OF INTENSITY, AND THE ACCOMPANYING CAPACITY TO FORMULATE, GUIDE AND FINALLY TRANSFORM UNPOLISHED MATERIALS CREATIVELY AND EFFICIENTLY INTO HIGHLY VALUABLE AND VIABLE ENTITIES.  SCORPIO I PEOPLE ARE VERY INTENSE.  ONCE THEY GET THEIR TEETH INTO SOMETHING THEY DO NOT EASILY LET GO.  NOR DO THEY SPECIALIZE IN COMPROMISE.  USING THEIR CHARM WITH GREAT EFFECT IS CHARACTERISTIC OF SCORPIO I’S.SCORPIO JUNGSSCORPIO II TAKES DEPTH AS ITS CENTRAL IMAGE.  SCORPIO II’S SYMBOLICALLY REVEAL THE MORE SERIOUS SIDE OF HUMAN LIFE.  GENERALLY SCORPIO II’S ARE NOT IN A BIG HURRY.  METAMORPHIC CHANGE MAY BE EFFECTED IN THEMSELVES AND THEIR LIVES OVER MANY YEARS – SLOWLY AND UNSEEN.  THE DANGER IN SUCH STATIC BEHAVIOR WILL LEAD TO BROODING, & DURING SUCH PERIODS SCORPIO II’S MUST BEWARE THAT THEIR DARK SIDE DOES NOT COME TO DOMINATE THEIR OUTLOOK.   AS WHEN OIL IS STRUCK & A GEYSER EXPLODES, TREMENDOUS ENERGIES CAN BE RELEASED FROM THE DEEP LAYERS OF THE UNCONSCIOUS.  SUCH ENERGIES MUS OF COURSE BE WELL DIRECTED OR DESTRUCTION COULD EASILY RESULT.  IDEALLY, POWERFUL NEW INSIGHTS MAY RESULT AT THIS TIME.SCORPIO STARSTHE SCORPIO III TAKES CHARM AS ITS CENTRAL IMAGE, SYMBOLICALLY REVEALING THE ATTRACTIVE POWERS OF SEDUCTIVE CHARM,  & MAGNETISM.  SCORPIO III PEOPLE TEND TO BE HIGHLY MAGNETIC, & HAVE A HIGHLY DEVELOPED SENSUALITY WHICH NOT ONLY TENDS TO ATTRACT OTHERS BUT LEADS THEM TO SEEK OUT A VARIETY OF PHYSICALLY SATISFYING EXPERIENCES.  THE INNER STABILITY OF SCORPIO III IS USUALLY SO GREAT THAT IT SEEMS IT WOULD TAKE AN EARTHQUAKE TO KNOCK THEM OFF BALANCE.  PART OF THE REASON FOR THIS IS SELF-CONTROL, ANOTHER PART A REALISTIC ASSESSMENT OF THEIR CAPABILITIES, WHICH KEEPS THEM FROM VENTURING BEYOND THEIR LIMITATIONS.  CONTROL IS THE KEYSCORPIO DEN

ARRIVING IN EAST BERLIN

HOCHSCHULE BERLINIT WAS PRETTY CLEAR FROM THE START, THAT THERE WAS TOO MUCH GOING ON IN BERLIN IN 2001 TO STAY IN LONDON, IT HAD ALWAYS BEEN ON THE BACK BURNER TO JUMP SHIP AND HEAD TO BERLIN, BUT WHEN WE WON THE COVETED BERLIN SCHOLARSHIP TO STUDY AT THE HOCHSCHULE DER KUSNTE. WE BOUNCED.  THERE WASN’T AS MUCH OF A CULTURE SHOCK, AS THERE WAS A CLIMATE SHOCK.  BEING IN THE STATES ENJOYING 85 DEGREE WEATHER IN SEPTEMBER WAS GREAT.  LANDING IN LONDON TO 60 DEGREE WEATHER A FEW DAYS LATER WAS MANAGEABLE,  SHAVING OFF THAT NEXT TEN DEGREES AT SCHöNEFELD WAS THE EYE OPENER.  LOOKING FORWARD, OUR MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES WOULD BE IN THE COLD BERLIN NIGHTS.BERLIN HOT SPOTGOING FROM A UNIVERSITY THAT WAS  RAPIDLY COM-MODIFYINGLONDON CREATIVITY” BY THE MINUTE, BERLIN WAS A BLANK CANVAS WITH A DISTINCTLY EXPERIMENTAL ETHOS AND DIY ENERGY. UDK WAS NEAR BANKRUPTCY,  BUT TO BE HONEST, THE BEST ARTWORK COMES FROM BIG IDEAS AND LIMITED RESOURCES, SO IT WAS FITTING WE WOULD HAVE TO FIND OUR OWN CREATIVE PATH IN THE CITY.  ARRIVING FOR ORIENTATION, ALL THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS WERE INTRODUCED, AND QUITE QUICKLY WE NOTICED AN INTERESTING DYNAMIC.  EVERYONE WAS GOING TO CAFE MOSKAU THAT EVENING, WE WERE NOTICING OFF THE BAT WAS AN EAGERNESS IN THE AIR,  WHICH WAS QUITE THE OPPOSITE OF LONDONS NOTORIOUS STAND-OFFISH NATURE, WHERE ENTHUSIASM HAS TO BE PULLED WITH PLIERS.  THIS WAS A DISTINCTLY NEW TYPE OF ENERGY FLOWING THROUGH THE ETHER. EAST BERLINS SCENE WAS ON FIREBERLIN MASSCAFE MOSKAU IS A BERLIN INSTITUTION.  THE TOP TWO FLOORS WERE HOUSING AN ART EXHIBITION, AND THE DOWNSTAIRS THEATER HELD THE CLUB.  WHERE LONDON THERE ARE ALWAYS ABOUT 20 DJS TO EVERY 1 DJ SPOT.  IN BERLIN FOR EVERY 1 DJ THERE WERE 2 OR 3 VJS WORKING SIMULTANEOUSLY, CREATING AWE INSPIRING VISUALS USING DIGITAL AND ANALOG, WHERE THE MOVING IMAGE WAS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE SOUNDTRACK, AND NOT SECONDARY.  THE BASEMENT WAS GETTING HOT, IT WAS AROUND MIDNIGHT, AND THE DANCE FLOOR WAS SURROUNDED,  THE DJS WERE REALLY FUCKING WITH US, BECAUSE EVERYONE WAS AT A POINT OF OVERFLOW, AND WHEN THE DJS DROPPED A RE-EDIT OF TRUE STEPPERS- OUT OF YOUR MIND.  THE PLACE EXPLODED, THE DANCE FLOOR DISAPPEARED, AND AN OUTFLOW OF UNIQUE ENERGY ERUPTED LATE INTO THE NIGHTBERLIN LIGHT
