RED STARS – FEBRUARY

The horoscope for February is entirely dedicated to David Bowie, with a selection of songs that speak and play directly to each star sign. A Capricorn, with Mars and the Sun in conjunction in the twelfth house, squared Neptune, and a wonderful Moon in Leo, trine Venus in Sagittarius.

A quick change artist, launching upwards, a rebellious star immersed in the glittering world of rock, who had a deep relationship with the stars and with their dust. Do not allow yourself to be confused by too much stardust, by the excess of dust that obscures ones sight. The truth is a natural way, that requires abandonment, listening, the absence of filters, of prejudice and of selfishness.

ARIES

She shook me cold

I had no time to spare, I grabbed her golden hair
And threw her to the ground
Father, she craved my head, Oh Lord, the things she said
My God, she should be told

I was very smart, broke the gentle hearts
Of many young virgins

I was quick on the ball, left them so lonely
They’d just give up trying

Then she took my head, smashed it up
Kept my young blood rising
Crushed me mercilessly, kept me going around

So she didn’t know I crave her so

TAURUS

God knows I’m good

I was walking through the counters of a national concern
And a cash machine was spitting by my shoulder

And I saw the multitude of faces, honest, rich and clean
As the merchandise exchanged and money roared
And a woman hot with worry slyly slipped a tin of stewing steak
Into the paper bag at her side
And her face was white with fear in case her actions were observed
So she closed her eyes to keep her conscience blind

Crying
“God knows I’m good
God knows I’m good
God knows I’m good
God may look the other way today

God knows I’m good
God knows I’m good
God knows I’m good
God may look the other way today”

Then she moved toward the exit clutching tightly at her paper bag
Perspiration trickled down her forehead
And her heart it leapt inside her as the hand laid on her shoulder
She was led away bewildered and amazed

GEMINI

I can’t explain

New feeling inside
It’s a hot certain kind
I feel hot and cold
Down in my soul, baby

I can’t explain
Going out of my mind
Dizzy in the head, and I’m feeling blue
Things you say well maybe they’re true
I get funny dreams again and again
Knows what it means, but

Can’t explain
I think it’s love
Say it to you
When I feel blue

I can’t explain, no, I can’t explain

You know I can’t explain
I’m going out of my mind
Well I’m a worried guy
But I can’t explain

CANCER

Forgetting

I keep forgetting
you don’t love me no more
I keep forgetting
you don’t want me no more
I keep forgetting
that you told me that you
Didn’t want me around any more
But these stupid old feet
Just head for your street
Like they’ve done so many times before
And this stubborn old fist
On the end of my wrist
Keeps a knocking on your front door

I keep forgetting
you don’t love me no more
I keep forgetting
you don’t want me no more
I keep forgetting
bout those heartbreaking nights

And those heartbreaking things
That you said
Though I know in my heart
We’re drifting apart
I can’t believe
that our love is dead

Though it’s plain as can be
That you’re finished with me
I just can’t get it through my head

LEO

Where have all the good times gone?

In my life I’ve never stopped
to worry about a thing
Opened up and shouted out
and never tried to see
Wondering if I’d done wrong
Will this depression last for long

Won’t you tell me
Where have all the good times gone
Where have all the good times gone
Where have all the good times gone

Once we had an easy ride
and always felt the same
Time was on our side
and I had everything to gain
Let it be like yesterday
Please let me have happy days

Ma and Pa looked back on all the things they used to do
Didn’t have no money and they always told the truth
Daddy didn’t have no toys
And Mummy didn’t need no boys
Yesterday was such an easy game for you to play
But let’s face it things are so much easier today
Guess you need some bringing down
Get your feet back on the ground

VIRGO

Never Get Old

(Better take care)
I think I’d better go,
I’d better get a room,
better take care of me
(Again, and again)
I think about this,
and I think about personal history
(Better take care)
I breathe so deep
when the movie gets real
when the star turns ’round
(Again, and again)
He looks me in the eye,
and he says
he’s got his mind on a count down
(3,2,1 Forever)
I’m screaming
that I’m gonna be living on
till the end of time
(Forever)

(Again, and again)
And I’m awake in an age of light
and living it because of you
(Better take care)
I’m looking at the future,
solid as a rock, because of you
(Again and again)
Wanna be a here,
Then I wanna be there,
Living just like you,
living just like me
(Forever)
Putting on my gloves
and I bury my bones in the marshland
(Forever)
Think about my soul
but I don’t need a thing
Just the ring of the bell
in the pure, clean air
Now I’m running down the street of life

LIBRA

Day after day
They tell me I can go
They tell me I can blow
To the far side of town
Where it’s pointless to be high
‘Cause it’s such a long way down
So I tell them that
I can fly, I will scream, I will break my arm 

I will do me harm
Here I stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall
I’m not quite right at all…am I?

Don’t set me free, I’m as heavy as can be
Just my librium and me
And my E.S.T. makes three

‘Cause I’d rather stay here
With all the madmen
Than perish with the sadmen roaming free

And I’d rather play here
With all the madmen
For I’m quite content they’re all as sane as me

SCORPIO

Janine

Oh my love, Janine
I’m helpless for your smile
Like a Polish wanderer
I travel ever onwards to your land
And were it not just for the jewels, I’d close your hand

Your strange demand
To ‘collocate’ my mind
Scares me into gloom
You’re too intense
I’ll have to keep you in your place
I’ve no defence
I’ve got to keep my veil on my face

Janine, Janine, you’d like to know me well
But I’ve got things inside my head
That even I can’t face

Janine, Janine, you’d like to crash
my walls
But if you take an axe to me
You’ll kill another man
Not me at all

You’re fey, Janine
A tripper to the last
But if I catch you standing on my toes
I’ll have a right to shout you down
For you’re a lazy stream
In which my thoughts would drown

SAGITTARIUS

I wish I was smarter
I got so lost on the shore
I wish I was taller
Things really matter to me

But I put my face in tomorrow
I believe we’re not alone
I believe in Beatles
I believe my little soul has grown
And I’m still so afraid

Yes, I’m still so afraid
Yea, I’m still so afraid on my own
On my own
What made my life so wonderful?
What made me feel so bad?
I used to wake up the ocean
I used to walk on clouds
If I put faith in medication
If I can smile a crooked smile
If I can talk on television
If I can walk an empty mile
Then I won’t feel afraid
No, I won’t feel afraid
I won’t be Be afraid
Anymore
Anymore
Anymore

CAPRICORN

Don’t let me down and down

Still I keep my love for you
No place to hide no way to fall
Nowhere to lie no world so wide
I’m sick and tired of telling you
Don’t let me down and down and down
Don’t let me down and down and down

I know there’s something in the wind
That crazy balance of my mind
What kind of fool are you and I?
Scared to death and tell me why
I’m sick and tired of telling you
Don’t let me down and down and down
Don’t let me down and down and down

Still I keep my love for you

You made a date with destiny
You jog-jog in my memory
You haunt in mind not fade away
I’m sick and tired of telling you
Don’t let me down and down and down
Don’t let me down and down and down
I’m sick and tired of telling you

Still I keep my love for you
No place to hide, no way to fall
Nowhere to lie no world so wide
I’m sick and tired of telling you
Don’t let me down and down and down
Don’t let me down and down and down

AQUARIUS

Anyway, anyhow, anywhere.

I can go anyway
(way I choose)
I can live anyhow
(win or lose)
I can go anywhere
(for something new)
Anyway, anyhow, anywhere I choose

I can do anything
(right or wrong)
I can talk anyhow
(and get along)
I don’t care anyway
(I never lose)
Anyway, anyhow, anywhere I choose

Nothing gets in my way
Not even locked doors
Don’t follow the lines
that been laid before
I get along anyway I care
Anyway, anyhow, anywhere

Anyway, anyway I choose
I wanna go
Do it myself, do it myself,
Anyway, anyway I choose

PISCES

An Occasional Dream

I recall how we lived
On the corner of a bed
And we’d speak of a Swedish room
Of hessian and wood
And we’d talk with our eyes
Of the sweetness in our lives
And tomorrows of rich surprise…
Some things we could do

In our madness
We burnt one hundred days
Time takes time to pass
And I still hold some ashes to me
An Occasional Dream

And we’d sleep, oh so close
But not really close our eyes
‘Tween the sheets of summer
bathed in blue…
Gently weeping nights
It was long, long ago
And I can’t touch your name

For the days of fate
were strong for you…
Danced you far from me

In my madness
I see your face in mine
I keep a photograph
It burns my wall with time
