18-19 Taurus/Leo/Scorpio/Aquarius cross

  • Taurus: A Newly Formed Continent.
  • Leo: A Houseboat Party.

  • Scorpio: A Parrot Listening And Then Talking.
  • Aquarius: A Forest Fire Quenched.


Have you ever been to the newest, hottest place in town?  New islands are formed volcanically; continents are formed by collision of tectonic plates so that mountains are formed; both create land-building (Taurus).

In earlier times, only explorers would find new continents.  By sea (Leo)—pirates or explorers enjoyed the excitement, bounty and potential that the new continent provided, until a parrot (Scorpio) blabbed the secret. So, everyone knew, and the latest, most exclusive locale is mainstream—quenching the fervour (Aquarius)!

One example from history illustrates this cross: the use of the Americas for cod fishing by the Basque before Columbus. In his book Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World, Mark Kurlansky (1997) states that fishermen keep secrets, explorers do not.  The Basque kept America (Taurus) a secret for their own fishing business (Leo) for hundreds of years before Columbus ‘discovered’ it (Scorpio), kicking off a time of mass immigration and change for that country until it was ‘settled’ (Aquarius).

Another example, on a personal level, is that we discover a new place (or a new ability or hobby) (Taurus) that we can enjoy with others (Leo) until a truth or the noise about it (Scorpio) kills the excitement (Aquarius)!
