Brasenose Bears

Dublin, August 2004

In August 2004 McBear and Roger were going to Oxford to work on their Masters. While McBear was studying for his M.Sc., Roger was studying for his M.A.
"Writing several books is an art in itself", Roger said.

In Oxford we studied at the famous Brasenose College, and the subject was Astrology.
Being an Aquarian, McBear had a special interest in the science of the solar system and the mathematics behind the planetary movements.
Roger on the other hand, being a Leo, had a keen interest in the stars.
"After all, I am a star myself", Roger pointed out.

Here we are sitting in the study room with another student, Henrik from Denmark.

Study can be hard and draining, so between the lectures we enjoyed our tea in the New Quad. As you can see, the cups weren't exactly bear-sized, and McBear had forgotten to bring his own china from home - but the tea was lovely.

We also went to see Christ Church with some of the other students. Xanthe, one of our fellow students, lifted us as we had some questions for the gentleman at the entrance.

In the center of the garden of Christ Church is a fountain with a statue of Hermes, also known as Mercury. We had a debate relating to the Mercurial position in each our birthcharts, and while McBear has Mercury in Pisces, Roger has Mercury in Leo.
"No wonder you're always dramatising your words", McBear was teasing Roger.
"And no wonder people don't understand what you're waffling about!" Roger replied a bit annoyed.
But soon things were back to normal...

We also went to see the huge dinosaur footprints.
"One day people in Oxford will admire my footprints next the dinosaur footprints, and people will visualize and think: "Here walked the famous Viking Roger".
"Yawn-yawn", McBear said and continued: "You're a true Leo and you hold the world record in self-confidence!"

To get our photo taken in front of the famous Radcliffe Camera, we had to climb to the top of the fence. Poor McBear, was gasping for breath when he finally got up. Roger was about to give out to him for spending too much time on front of the computer at home, but this time Roger felt sorry for McBear.

Oh, well, back to studying as Brasenose was expecting us to finish the study.

Finally, Brasenose was over, but before we left, we had our photo taken with the rest of the group, including one of our lecturers, the world famous astrologer, Robert Hand.
