TangoStars Jan/Feb 2008

Happy New Year and may all your tango dreams come true!
Here is a tango lyric to describe each of your fortunes.
Gracias to for English translations.

Feliz Cumpleaños Capricorn y Aquarius

The Goat is entering a special year with Jupiter (the Gavito of the Zodiac) in your sign.
Gangster, king of the milonga Gangster, sentimental
you hide behind your laughter much desire to cry.
(Patotero, rey del bailongo patotero sentimental,
escondes bajo tu risa muchas ganas de llorar.)

You will be protected from all malevos (except yourself!) and your dance repertoire will expand as you now fully grasp the secrets of the tango.

The Waterbearer
Why do you prefer to cry for what you've lost
to look for what you've wanted
to call for what has died?
(¿Por qué prefieres llorar lo que has perdido
buscar lo que has querido
llamar lo que murió?)

Let the dead rest in peace. Loosen the hold of the ghost of the old milonguero monkey on your back. Take some Nuevo classes!

Loft furnished by Maple: piano, rug and nightlamp…
a fonograph that cries old tangos of my flower

No you are not redecorating your apartment!

And everything at half light that love is a sorcerer...
At half light the kisses...At half light the two of us...
(Pisito que puso Maple, piano, estera y velador...
una fonola que llora viejos tangos de mi flor,)
(Y todo a media luz, que es un brujo el amor,
a media luz los besos, a media luz los dos...)

You are having a (ssh) secret love affair with Tango.

This is how one dances the tango, while I "draw" a figure eight,
for this fancy footwork, I am like a painter.
Now here is a run, a turn, a sitting.
This is how one dances the tango!
(Asi se baila el tango, mientras dibujo el ocho,
para estos filigranas, yo soy como un pintor.
Ahora una corrida, una vuelta, una sentada.
Asi se baila el tango!)

You will increase your classes in the New Year and be sure to also increase your rates! Lucky Milonga Days: Jan 14, 15, 22, 23 Feb 10, 11, 19, 20

Staying up all night…
My best companions always were the milongueros boys,
the gamblers and something else; and with them,
night after night I wasted, between drinks, dances and parties…
Siempre fueron, mis mejores compañeros los muchachos milongueros,
jugadores y algo mas; y con ellos,
noche a noche derrochaba entre copas, baile y farras…)

You are on the tango festival circuit. Non stop!

Goodbye, my pampa!... I'm leaving... I'm leaving for strange lands
(Adios, pampa mia!...Me voy... Me voy a tierras extrañas.)

You carry heaviness in your heart that only the tango can soothe. It is time to leave home and all that is familiar. An adventure awaits!
Lucky Milonga Days: Jan 18, 19, 27, 28 Feb 14, 15, 23, 24

A heart throbs...I seem to see you returning with a good bye.
(Late un corazon... me parece verte regresar con el adios.)

An old partner returns only to break it off again. And in the milonga, you unite once more...until the next quarrel. Ah, the dulce y amargo of love.

Dressed like a dandy, hair slicked with styling gel…
you dance at the milonga with an air of importance,
shining the elegance and giving exhibition.
(Vestido como un dandy, peinao a la gomina
y dueño de una mina más linda que una flor,
bailás en la milonga con aire de importancia,
luciendo tu elegancia y haciendo exhibición.)

You are on fire (and full of hot air)!

You don’t know, you'll never know what it is like
to die a thousand times of anxiety.
(No sabrás, nunca sabrás lo que es
morir mil veces de ansiedad)

Oh yes you do know! Between work and love, your passions run deep and you love to torment yourself.
Lucky Milonga Days: 7, 8, 24, 25 Feb 3, 4, 21, 22

If I don't live what I dream I dream all that I sing,
that's why my charm is love.
(Si es que no vivo lo que sueño Yo sueño todo lo que canto,
por eso mi encanto es el amor. )

Your magnetism embellishes your every step. And your laughter and song inspire others to dance their own dance of life.
Lucky Milonga Days: Jan 9, 10, 27, 28 Feb 6, 7, 23, 24

Carnival in my neighborhood!
where everything is love,
bells of laughter,
toning down the pain.
(¡Carnaval de mi barrio!,
donde todo es amor,
cascabeles de risa,
matizando el dolor)

Everything you need is in the hood. Milongas, lovers, cafes, even the pharmacy to ease your suffering.
Lucky Milonga Days: Jan 2, 3, 13, 29, 30 Feb 8, 26, 27

I have my little ranch on the hillock, where the thrush sing…
Daisies, and rosebushes have sprout for you…
Because one day this gaucho nest will be yours and mine…
(Yo tengo mi ranchito en la loma, donde cantan los zorzales...
Margaritas, y Rosales han brotado para vos...
Porque un día será ese nido gaucho de los dos...)

Your days of milonga hopping are over. You are building your nest with the partner of your heart.
