Great sunny day here, pretty windy (Uranus rules wind gusts) – spidey from a few posts back was hanging on tight to what was left of her battered zig-zag web.
Have I mentioned Virgos like critters ? Virgo rules pets, and I have had all kinds, fish, gerbils, toads, frogs, geckos, dogs, cats even a fly once when I was little (and no, I don’t know why, and yes, I let him go).
I took a few pics of my nearly full-blooming clematis for my Aussie friend, Mo. It attracts a ton of critters and bugs…
This pic turned out pretty well considering this bumblebee stopped at nearly every single flower and was hard to follow.
Bee was busy, definitely busy. (Mercury rules bees, Venus the nectar)
I looked into bumblebee flight (of course, Uranus rules flight) and found out its left and right wings flap independently, making for a bumpy ride because the airflow created isn’t as streamlined as other bugs.
They fly in a sea of vortices surrounded by tiny eddies and whirlwinds that are created when they move their wings.
Bumbles buzz is created by the wing vibration in their flight. (Uranus rules vibration and flight)
They have “adopted a brute force approach powered by a huge thorax and fuelled by energy-rich nectar. The bumblebee is like a tanker-truck, its job is to transport nectar and pollen back to the hive. Efficiency is unlikely to be important for that way of life.”
Ok. So bees are Virgo and Mercury ruled (of course) because they harvest, gather and sort for oncoming winter.
But…seeing as how bumble flight is inefficient (soOo not Virgo), and rather turbo-charged (very, very Mars), I’m going with bumblebees being ruled by Mars and Mercury. What do you think..?
Either way, bumble doesn’t care, bumble flies anyway !
(Now that is Uranian !)
…maybe I’ll re-name all my bumbles Herschel…seems like a good bumble name…dontcha think…?…
