Okay, the title’s a bit dramatic, but it’s Leo time and there’s a fast-approaching full moon in Aquarius. It’s got to be a little weird, right? If you like tarot, astrology, and sci-fi, this should be fun. Strange. But fun.
Cast of Characters
Aquarius as The Alien/Star
Leo as The Predator/Strength
Leo, The Predator
Regally clad in the finest of costume, and symbolic of the zodiac sign Leo, Strength has the courage to stand up and fight for the prize. All bets are off when this player enters the game. Leo is powerful, demanding, and insists on being noticed. Leo’s strategy is to make nonparielled and willful use of all advantages of privilege, to play a very forceful and commanding role in this sport of sports and be crowned King of the Universe. As the most majestic ruler of our solar system ~ and no matter what the outcome may be ~ Strength will exit gregariously while holding claim to a royal birthright and defending the title of reigning champion.
Aquarius, The Alien
From the furthermost reaches of our galaxy, in hopes of winning this People’s Choice award, comes The Star. Aquarius’ stragegy is to entice the opponent’s hopes and dreams, to get the everyman out there in the crowd to wish for something bigger than himself, to rally the troops and form a brotherhood where all people will exist in a better world. Aquarius is logical, sometimes coldly detached from the outcome of the game. The Star will make unpredictable surprise attacks on the opponent’s mind with idealistic analogies. Using this proven scientific approach, The Star will eventually inhabit and transform the opponent’s thoughts. Even if knocked down, The Star will never be knocked out. The Star’ll be all around in the dark – The Star’ll be ever’where—wherever you look. Wherever they’s a fight so hungry people can eat, The Star’ll be there. Wherever they’s a cop beatin’ up a guy, The Star’ll be there… The Star’ll be in the way guys yell when they’re mad an’ in the way kids laugh when they’re hungry and they know supper’s ready. The Star’ll be there.
