"Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. . . . It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk everything, you risk even more". Erica Jong in How to Save Your Own Life

Enchant me

Nearly two weeks ago, I meant to write about the beautiful moon I saw.

As I crested the hill on the sidewalk outside of my apartment complex during my run, a yellow-orange moon came into sight and literally took my breath away. It was absolutely huge and stunning. I gave a little gasp and couldn't stop staring at it. Sometimes the beauty in this world is too much.

The magical moon made me think of the word "globe"...I've always thought it romantic and intriguing, probably just because of the Globe theater..And also the word "enchantment." I'm ready for something magical to happen; I'm ready to be enchanted.


You may be shaking up your life starting at ground level, for explosive Uranus in your 4th House of Roots is being encouraged now by boundless Jupiter in your sign. Don't look for reasons to maintain the status quo; any change is better than none. Ultimately, the current instability will fade and the permanent changes will become more readily apparent.

It's nothing if not interesting. And I guess it's true. My horoscope is usually dead-on. I thought this was a fluke; I just assume that we all read what we want to from the horoscope and see how it fits us. So, a few times I have read other signs' horoscopes- and they seriously don't really apply to me. But, that also could just be me tricking myself again. But, I still check my horoscope nearly daily, take it with a grain of salt, but still secretly wonder how this accuracy emerges so often...
