Scorpio this week:
Happy Valentine Daze, Scorpio! The three love offerings I have might be a challenge for you to receive in the same generous spirit with which I’m giving them. Nevertheless, the astrological omens suggest this is one of those rare times when you can truly benefit from their bracing advice. So here are my gifts, starting with an insight from author Zora Neale Hurston: “Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.” Your second oracle comes from writer James Baldwin: “Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.” My third offering is from novelist Iris Murdoch: “Love is the difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.”
Ok. Well, here’s my take….Love makes you do stupid things that you’d never consider doing otherwise. Love is a sweet torture that can devour the weak-willed. And last but not least….Love can make you blind.
Not that I’m cynical about love, I wallow in it as much as possible (as most of you have noticed), but I despise Val’s Day. But I will say this, for this time of year….Why spend one day being sweet and romantic to a lover, when you have 364 other days to show it as well? And plus, it makes getting into nice restaurants, like my fav, a pain in the fucking ass.
