My husband is a Taurus with a Scorpio Moon. His current Solar Return has the Moon in Scorpio; this will be interesting to watch.
Last week he ordered, Popular Mechanics Do-It-Yourself Encyclopedia – Complete Set in 16 Volumes, 1968 Edition. He’s mechanically inclined but beyond that I know he feels our country is going down. It’s good to know how to fix things…in hard copy!
The books were delivered yesterday. I was taken aback when I saw they were shipped from a pawn shop. I’ve only been in near one pawn shop once in my life. I went with a man who hocked his Corvette, if you can believe that. He needed a short term loan.
He went back a week later, with the cash to get his car out of hock. The shop owner was surprised and not happy to see him.
We went into the back room to pay the guy. It was thousands of dollars in cash, hundred dollar bills. I’ll never forget what he said as we sat at the table, in regards to the money. “Cough it up.”
My friend counted out the money; he got his car keys back and we left with me, saying a silent prayer that I would never have to witness anything like this again. The energy was just so bad.
“Your encyclopedias came today,” I said. “They came from a pawn shop. Some poor bastard had to go in there and sell his books.”
My husband shrugged. “One man’s bad luck is another man’s fortune.”
Clearly that’s true, but I will never walk by those books on the shelf without feeling a chill. I do expect to use them, though.
He’s not opened the box yet, but I’m pretty sure they have those glossy pages.
How do you feel around “goods of the dead”?
