The Girlie Gene
The subject came up in this madcap think tank of female beauty enhancement. No surprise as Mars, the planet of action crosses Libra, the sign of grace, manners, and social concepts of beauty. It was suggested that makeup, clothing, and adornments are a marvelous means of self expression and I agree. Women color the world and delight the eye.
I am glad I wasn't a lady here in the 19oo's.
When George Bernard Shaw was asked his opinion of American women in 1907, he said....
Every American woman explains that she is not like any other women. But they are all exactly the same. The only thing to be said for them is that they are usually very well dressed and extraordinarily good looking.
Well this sounds rather simplistic, but we do seem to have much more freedom nowadays to express our individual personalities. And I'm glad I wasn't around for that turn of the century contraption known as THE CORSET! Thank heavens I'm here now. I have a Mars square Uranus and I would have been in terrible trouble.
