What grade to give for Obama's presidency?
I'd give him a "C" (could've done better).
Husband found this in an old newspaper during his researches of 19th/early 20th century photographers.
Staying on a vintage track, I found these thoughts on musical tastes and astrology, submitted to The National Astrological Journal in 1934 by one Edward Forsythe of Providence, R.I. -
The type pf music that appeals to a person can be found by noting the aspects of Venus in his horoscope.
Venus and Sun - stately pompous pieces
Venus and Moon - simple, novel things
Venus and Mercury - quick, light music
Venus and Mars - marches, military and descriptive war songs
Venus and Jupiter - church hymns or slow, stately marches
Venus and Saturn - old songs and solemn tunes
Venus and Uranus - uncommon, futuristic music, such as Rhapsody in Blue by Gershwin
Venus and Neptune - dreamy, quiet, romantic and mystical music.
The good aspects to Venus give preference to the slower form of each type of music; the afflictions tend toward the faster and wilder form of each, as signified by the different planets.
Hmmm - in my case, with Venus trine Moon and Venus square Neptune I'm supposed to prefer - musically - the simple and novel (slower version); and romantic, mystical, dreamy (faster wilder version). Do I? Yes - but lots of other stuff also.
