The obliquity of the ecliptic is that relationship between the earth’s axial and celestial rotations. The obliquity of the ecliptic not being a fixed quantity, the earth’s non-static minutes of arc prohibits your horoscopic sign from having its true value in relation to your birthdays. (Can’t you please stop being so willfully obscure!?) The zodiac as it is known today consists of ass-backwards significance assigned wrongly to your weekly progression due to massively subtle shifts in vast rotations over thousands of years. The stars are all wrong and have been for the last millennia. Having once thought that you are were an aries, your sign has actually wandered confusedly away amongst the stars to sit squarely in the constellation of pisces, where it no doubt receives a great deal of abuse and scorn. Stars, hide your fires / you no-good low-down rotten liars. However, do not lose hope, for there are other signs.
“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things—air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky—all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.”—Cesare Pavese (via whyhellodear)
