Duodecimal... Duh?


So the moon has entered the twelfth house and we Pisceans are on hand to see the cycle of the star signs end before we re-boot one more time when the vernal equinox rolls around.


Twelve... we are also in the twelfth year of the new century. Now I'm not about to go off into the woo-woo territory of the numerologists but I did find the Wiki mention below informative...


"In both soccer and American football, the number 12 can be a symbolic reference to the fans because of the support they give to the 11 players on the field. Texas A&M University reserves the number 12 jersey for a walk-on player who represents the original '12th Man', a fan who was asked to play when the team's reserves were low in a college American football game in 1922. Similarly, Bayern MunichHammarbyFeyenoordAtl├ętico MineiroFlamengoSeattle SeahawksPortsmouth and Cork City do not allow field players to wear the number 12 on their jersey because it is reserved for their supporters."


I wonder if that makes those born under the sign of Pisces the supporters of the other eleven players in Team Zodiac?


Why this duodecimal riff? This year sees my seventy-second birthday... twelve six-fold. And my daughter will turn twenty-four, hence twice twelve. That's all.
