Enter the matrix of dreams.
After having traversed The LA freeway system, for what seemed like hours, we finally hit the open road and drank in the eerie landscapes of The Southern California desert. I had visions of Spahn Ranch, out there in the distance, where acid fueled orgies and new moon rituals culminated in Manson’s apocalyptic sermons, peppered with keywords and triggers, priming his nubile zombies to murder on command, the dark phantoms of the hippy movement, ceremonially aborting the innocence of a generation. That stretch of highway still rings with supernatural echoes and disembodied voices that whisper and scream in the late winter Santa Anas.
We stopped in Barstow for caffeine and protein. All I have to say is that if “The Biggest Loser” is scouting for talent, the “In And Out” in Barstow has enough potential reality stars for the next decade at any given time.
So, we’re here at the El Cortez and it is so laid back and old school, I think I’ll use some Brylcream and Mennen before I hit the strip tonight.
So back to the stars, Big Ben and The Super Bowl. Steeler Nation is on edge . . . I can feel the angst. It’s palpable. Shawn Carson, a new reader here has done some really nice work, which I will post here in addition to what I dredge up.
I’m going to get to his Western details in a minute, but I’m going to look at his Sun’s Sabian Symbol and Mayan count to get a bigger overview.
Big Ben was born on 3/2/82 and his Pisces Sun is at 12 degrees. The Sabian Symbol for 12 degrees Pisces is, “An Ancient Sword, Used In Many Battles, Is Displayed In A Museum.” To me, this personifies Big Ben as a timeless warrior, soul who re-incarnates from lifetime to lifetime to take his place in the field of battle. This lifetime, it’ s football. I can’t think of too many other quarterbacks that lay it out on every play the same way Big Ben does. Some QB’s are field generals, Roethlisberger is a soldier. On Sunday, the Sabian Symbol for The Aquarian Sun, also at twelve degrees is, “A Barometer” slightly obtuse and yet encapsulates a certain Aquarian prediliction for science and metrics, weights and measures. Herein lies what I think is the key to Roethlisberger’s performance come Sunday. He has been fairly candid about his poor performance during the last Super Bowl, and I am sure that he will use it as a “barometer” to gauge his performance this Sunday.
With his warrior-like Sabian symbol, he is conscious of legacy and I have no doubt that despite the ring, he is not proud of performance. The key for Big Ben is to get out early and play well. If I was Bruce Arians, I would script him plays that would give him some success early, because based on his Sabian Symbol, if he is not faring well early on, I am afraid that he will struggle throughout the rest of the game. That doesn’t spell doom for a team that has Willie Parker and a magnificent defense, but it could make it harder on them. Big Ben’s early success is critical, unlike Warner, whom I feel will be engaged in an epic battle of wills. I’m not sure that Roethlisberger’s psyche, in this game, can handle it.
