Where Have You Bean?

Now that my constant companion these days, Pluto, is making a four month stop on my 11th house ruler, Uranus, I got to thinking about this Aquarius thing. Well feeling it, actually. As Saturn in Leo now is toppling our current leadership, Aquarius is strengthening the humanitarian connection. It's a little too soon to see the results, but they will be forthcoming.
The dissolving of outworn structures in the rulership realm is just about over. It's changed my life, as I've cautiously joined with my fellows here in this new dimension, sharing my visions on a daily basis. And so, with all these newfound friends, and many more to come, I ask, "where have you bean all my life?"
The group reminds of these beans. Every one unique, yet similar in basic appearance. Together and apart.
They don't stand alone. Can you imagine one pinto on your plate?

acoustigod, I watched Colbert and Willie nelson last night too. I agree about the press club dinner. I think the current state of affairs has demanded that everyone push back, and maybe that is why blatant in-your-face people like Colbert and Sasha Baron Cohen feel like just what the doctor ordered. They just carry the extremist positions of the right to the logical conclusions, and show how imbecilic their policies are. Maybe helping along the dissolving of old structures. No bowing down to false authority.

Is Colbert's sang-froid due to his Taurusness?

As to beans, the only contests I have ever won are the guess how many beans are in the jar kind. I won two tickets to the Stones by guessing the exact number of stones in a jar.

This is so weird, juju. I just fell asleep and had a dream about people who were staying with me leaving my house feeling like a message was delivered. In terms of detachment maybe. Familiar people going. Or even leaving my own cacoon. Hard to tell.

Then found your post. That is so funny about the stones and the Stones. I thought it was impossible to do what you do did; guess the exact number.

I just noticed where the supoenas have been approved. Defying the executive has come just in the nick of time, and fits exactly with the transit of dissolving.

The thing about Colbert and the others, is the upholding of political satire that has been a great American tradition. As long as that was going on these years, and it was, I felt confident.

It's almost numbing to see this dissolution, and I think it's even more far-reaching than we imagine.

Taurus is known for not caring about others' criticism, although it varies. They operate from a center within themselves moreso than any other type.
It dawned on me why Willie has had his longevity in performance. He always travels in his own bus, taking it easy, and enjoying the process. They say the bus is wonderfully comfortable. Very Taurean and unlike the others in his field. I'll get there when I get there. He's stayed there. This is the approach I've been after. Not grasping and chasing too hard and fast, although I do need to learn to grasp a little, instead of letting everything slip away from me.

I have yet to get a grasp on my feelings about the current state of affairs, since I haven't been following the details. All I hope is that none of the presidential runners now seize the WH. They say we are due for more bad leadership, but I'm not so sure.

The thing about the political washing away, is the personal dissolution going on concurrently. Some people I notice are doing OK, others are lost and afraid, as things leave their lives or no longer provide support.
There will be one more exact opposition at the end of June, then on our way.

I had a huge illusion shattered about a month ago, but knowing what I do, I was ready. Willing really.

I will add, in terms of you, juju, your Sun-Pluto conjunction in Leo in the 11th (the Aquarius house), a deep connection with the collective now being crossed by this Saturn. This encourages me. Sometimes these events happen and people don't respond, so I'm always glad to see those that come to the call.

Your Venus ruler of your chart, is conjunct the Midheaven, more public destiny. I'm glad you're doing it, although a couple of years of some retreat is up ahead.

I've had a lot of retreat, and coming out is new to me. If I get really really lucky, there will be a better socio-political climate when I get completely out.

Refried Beans
(which, btw are never fried at all!)

2 cups dry pinto beans

2 to 3 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp cumin
1 ½ tsp salt
black pepper

Soak and cook the beans. (You can use canned, but it just doesn’t taste the same!)

Heat the oil, saute the onion, green pepper, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper.

Mash the beans with a potato masher and add to the above, or vice versa.

Cook everything a little bit more.

(Add a bit of water if too thick.)

I never actually ~follow~ this recipe. I also add coriander and other spices as per my mood.

There. Is that better? :-D

(Sounds 'simple' and it is, but oh so very yummy!)

Are there wild beans?

Well, essentially, beans are the seeds of some ~flowers~, and all flowers started out wild...

I used to grow scarlet runner beans, which have gorgeous bright red flowers. Now, you are supposed to eat the bean -pod~, but one year, I was unable to harvest them in time, and the 'seeds' ('beans') inside the pods grew big and hard, rendering the pods useless for eating. I figured, hey! that's how 'dry beans' come into being, and so I let them keep on doing their thing, and harvested the seeds/beans instead of the pods, later in the season. They were so BEAUTIFUL looking, a dark almost black purplish with pink swirls, I kept some in a pretty jar on a windowsill just for the pleasure of looking at them... The rest I cooked, and they were very tasty! :-)

Hence the kiddie song about the musical fruit that makes one toot (or something like that).

The Musical Fruit

Peas and Beans Ltd, a British research firm, cannot get grants to study their founder’s field of expertise: flatulence. To get something going, P&B has teamed up with M-scan, a company that makes “highly efficient chemical sniffing equipment,” says P&B’s Dr. Colin Leakey. Dr. Leakey thus used a “flatometer” to discover that “there is about a 10:1 difference in the flatus gas of acetone and 2-propanol.” His research helped him develop a new variety of bean that appears “to have higher digestibility and lower flatulence.” (Reuters)

Black beans reportedly have the most antioxidants.

Mmm-mm. I used to like listening to a David Soul song that goes, "All I want is some black bean soup/And you to make it with me."

Black Bean Soup
All I want is black bean soup
And you to make it with me
Honey won't you
Be my love while love will stay
And wear your ribbons for me

Boil those black beans, honey
Mash them up real well
One big soft tomato
Just a handful of sorrel, well
Cut up your chilly pepper
Squeeze that garlic smell
One mouthful of drippings
A granddaddy onion and well, well, well

All I want...

Well I've been kicked in the head a few times
But that just made me high
I believe in the good things now
You know black bean soup don't lie, lie, lie....

the flatus gas

Exceptional field of study.

I come from a family that engaged in robust release of this aforementioned flatus gas. I've heard that some groups frown on this? I can't imagine it, in intimate circles.

So, are there really nonflatulent families?

Hmm, well, I'm not at all prone to gas, but my mother is, ha ha! Maybe we eat different foods.

Gas is due to incomplete digestion...or difficult to digest substances. I suppose the type of intestinal flora affects the incidence, too.

Seems logical. I guess people defy this. It's hard to tell with how out of wack they are in general. Why are people drawn to unhealthy foods?

As I've aged, I eat less and am much more particular. If I don't like the taste completely, I don't eat it, whereas before, if I there was a moderate reaction, I would go ahead and swallow. Even hunger doesn't make me do that now.

I do fit in? Well, I forget how many least selected were in the results I had, but it was a serious preponderance. Sounds like you came up with more least selected responses than I did. :-)

"Or just pretend to go along with the majority."

Well, I can match other people's rhythms for a bit if I really want to. But I don't have to. :-)

I didn't save the results, but I may remember some of the responses. I could try it again, maybe.

I posted in the other thread about my experience tonight. It was alright. Kind of odd. I did perform, and it was ok. I didn't really set myself up right (sitting on a stool with my guitar not strapped on), and it gave me constant trouble through my song. My right leg was bouncing like crazy, and I kept fighting to control it in order to keep my guitar in position. I should have just stood with my guitar strapped on. Then my Gemini nervousness wouldn't have been able to wreak as much havoc. The people were very supportive, though, and I picked a complex enough song and got through it well enough to not feel terribly embarrassed at my performance. I performed cold as well. I figured that if I can do it on my own (at home), I ought to be able to do it out. I wasn't in a totally comfortable place, though, and that unfortunately came through. Oh well. I know I'm good, so my ego isn't terribly wrapped up in tonight's performance.

I hear ya. I have to have my guitar strapped on. I have a Strat now, and it's hard for me to hold. I want a fatter hollow body electric, like a Guild. What guitar do you have?

I've also been trying to decide about standing at my keybaords or sitting, or both. The optimum height is different for each. Problem.

When I stand, I can dance a bit and sing better. Put more movement into it. But when I sit, I can play with a little more precision and control the pedal better. I think I need to stand more than I have been recently. Rock and roll to some extent. Really working with this. Feeling comfortable is important. Sometimes I love to stand and push the floor.

I performed cold as well.

Big, big, big. It takes me an entire set to get warm. But I'm going to get where I can perform reasonably well cold. There's got to be a way. Still, nothing can replace a slow warm to the evening vibe. Last sets the best.

Love this music chat, acousticgod. And congrats for doing it tonight!

I played my Takamini acoustic/electric. It's my favorite instrument. It's a tremendous sounding guitar.

Speaking of which, I'm always shocked at how many people don't base their guitar choice on the sound of the guitar. I can't stand those fiberglass-backed acoustics. Their sound is so terrible.

I do have a Tele myself. I thought it was the right choice when I bought it, but I think I might make that choice differently if I were to do it again. It doesn't inspire me to play it. I think I need an electric that plays a bit more like an acoustic. I don't deal well with electric playing easier than acoustics for some reason.

Yeah, performing cold is pure ego I think. :D Over confidence. I'm amused with myself over that.

When I play with a ministry that feeds the homeless in San Francisco, I play bass, and I always play cold no problem. Of course, it is only bass, and I'm not responsible for singing, so I guess that's not a good comparison.

I do too. The Strat has the sweetest sound I've ever had in a guitar, but I just don't play it. I need a body to hold, I believe. It's sad, because of the incredible sound. And the strings melt and bend so easily. But I can feel it as we talk. The need for a hollow body. I would love to eventually learn slide guitar with the open tuning.

This is good, since I do want to do some numbers with it. Maybe after I get out and make some bread, I'll start shopping.

Yeah, I'd like to experiment with slide guitar as well. I think I've seen a small one that can stay on your finger while you play other parts traditionally.

There are other aspects that talk more about me being social, but this description really hit home recently:

Moon 16th harmonic (1/16) Uranus    (Orb: 0 Deg 31 Min):

        People who do not know you well are unlikely to realize the extent to which you need to feel comfortable and free of burdensome restrictions. It is difficult for you to compromise, and follow the requirements of others, especially if you do not agree with the regulations.


I like the good people as well, and I'm at my best when not feeling constricted.

I've been trying forever to figure out way to stop the constriction. It's a defensive posture, and it does seem natural, but being comfortable for me is everything. I don't know if that means inner work or being in an environment that fits, so I can automatically flow out of myself.

Having a Mercury in Cancer makes this difficult, feeling all sense impressions as I do.

Painting in the wind and rain. Now i'm listening to the music of it on the roof.

Oooohhh.....

Fennel is also an anti-flatulent

LOL!!! We'll be in good shape for the public.

I thought this was a good thread too.

Btw, interesting news from my friend who teaches at the Colorado Ballet. Everything has changed there and new dancers are coming in. Why? Because of a return to classicism. Right in time with Capricorn.

I am so ready for Pluto in Cap.

Very much looking forward to it.

Pluto in Sadge was necessary, and fruitful (for me personally), but I'm ready to 'graduate', to move up to the next class, and Cap will be the perfect next step.

I am too. It's amazing that we feel that way considering my 0 Mars and your 0 Saturn. I wonder if this is premonition. That it's going to be productive.

I know that I need strength now to go forward with my plans and Mars is where to get it. I'm hoping.

It's fascinating. I can already see the signs of my nest in retreat becoming less attractive.
