le sigh

A meeting of the reckless Aries and cautious, calculated Capricorn means differences can cause problems that need compromise, but both signs want to achieve great things.

For the similarities that these star signs share, there is a world of difference between them. They are both cardinal signs, meaning leadership, independence, and a certain tendency towards impatience; but the way these trait are exhibited couldn’t be more opposite.

Aries, the warrior sign, acts impulsively and recklessly. Their independence, confidence and often sheer bravado are contrasted by the rigid thoughtfulness of Capricorn, who will always weigh options up and act according to how reason dictates.

With two cardinal signs there is always an issue of control in a relationship and, usually, no sign can ever win outright. As with Aries and Cancer there must be compromise. If Capricorn enforces a rigid structure onto the relationship, for example, Aries will grow more frustrated, more confrontational and unhappy. In the end it will mean Capricorn must back down to Aries' frustrations or the relationship will never work. There must be sacrifices and finding a balance between their vastly contrasting world views is the main struggle that these two signs must face if they are to be happy together.

The differences between these signs are likely to be the very things that draw them together. Aries is always a sign that is drawn to the mystery and fascination of signs with the patience and persistence that they notoriously lack. For them the wisdom and composure within Capricorn, as well as an almost steel-like inner strength and tendency towards discipline, is something that Aries admires; though it would be easier for Aries to choose an air or fire sign such as Sagittarius.

Conversely for Capricorn the confidence of Aries to act without weighing every little detail up in their mind first is very appealing. There are elements in both signs that the other almost craves to have a little bit of in their own personality. By spending time together in a relationship and growing closer both star signs can learn a lot about themselves and hope to balance out some more flawed aspects in their personality.

This is a meeting of Fire and Earth. Such relationships are never as smooth flowing as Fire and Air or Earth and Water, but if both partners put in the required effort and find a balance then they will reap deeper benefits that more naturally suited combinations miss out on. It is important that they see their differences as something to be admired and respected. This way a balance can be found, ideas can be shared and each person can be improved by the other. Remember, both signs want the same thing: to achieve great things. Together they can help each other to do this. It is the methods of the signs that differ, not their purpose in life.

the sonic manipulator

video

Lindsey and I watched this guy perform on a Melbourne street corner. He had more noise makers and voice changers then James Ho. Cop cars and fire engines would sound their sirens for a few seconds as they went by. Basically he made up a bunch of songs about how his spaceship crashed on earth and he is just spanging enough money to get it fixed again.

finally some pictures!















2 more days, baby!





this picture makes me feel a little bit better though...

Annoyed!!

Alright, I'm totally getting ripped off by some bogus company that is making unauthorized charges on my American Express card! A company called reservation rewards norwak has been charging me 12 dollars monthly. According to google I am not the only one. "The alleged scheme worked this way, according to the suit: After consumers made online purchases from various Web retailers, a pop-up window appeared on their computer screens promising a $10 coupon on their next purchase. If consumers entered their e-mail addresses to redeem that coupon, their personal information, including credit or debit card number, was automatically transferred to {Reservation Rewards}." I have no idea how long this has been going on!!! GRrrrr, this pisses me off!

Oishii!!!!!

I can't believe my trip is nearing its end! 2 months really isn't that long. I have a newfound respect for biodynamic farming. I actually got to see how amazingly fast seeds germinate right before the full moon! The baby plants went from seed to one inch tall in 4 freaking days. My parents just sent me an email saying that they saw in the news that this town in Queensland is getting overrun by giant spiders. "In a scene that could almost be out of a B-grade monster movie, giant spiders have invaded Bowen. For about six weeks, residents have reported seeing huge bird-eating spiders crawling around their backyards and gardens. Most grow to be the size of a man’s hand." So glad I'm not wwoofing there right now. I did see the most enormous toad the other day. This toad was bigger than both my hands combined, probably about the size of a softball. I have pictures, oh yes, but this computer won't let me post them on blogger.
