Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
A while back I asked my readers, “What conditions would you need in your world in order to feel you were living in paradise?” I’ll report to you how one Scorpio responded, since it’s very apropos to your immediate future. “My utopia,” wrote Sandra Boyd of Vancouver, “would require me to be desired, loved, and satiated amidst messy order and cockeyed perfection.” I urge you to create that exact set of conditions, Scorpio. Get out there and cultivate the funny logic, wild discipline, and chaotic organization that will help ensure you’ll be fiercely adored.
Heh, my desire is to be standing on the edge of a hurricane of passion and feel the winds invite me into the funnel. 😀 There’s definitely more, but that would be the fun part.
I would think parents would be better than this (family creates fake myspace, girl commits suicide). But no. Instead, they have to sneak around, not just their child, but the child of someone else. Now, while I don’t agree with the seeking of charges in the suicide, I do believe that something needs to happen. I understand the vigilance that is needed with kids on the internet, but this is going waaaaaaaaay too far.
Why have we stooped to this level? Even if it’s just one person. What happened with developing good communication skills with kids early on? *sigh*
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
The sharks in German aquariums weren’t reproducing fast enough. Their keepers hired scientists to come up with the shark equivalent of aphrodisiacs. The most successful inducement to love was music — especially Justin Timberlake’s “Rock Your Body,” Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry,” and Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It.” I suggest you play tunes like those for you and your chosen ones, Scorpio. It’s an excellent time to coax out more of the tender, romantic sides of your inner shark, as well as the inner shark of anyone you’re attracted to.
Ummmmm, can we get off the relationship stuff already? Although, “Slap my Bitch” seems like a good soundtrack….Although…..let me come up with an alternative interpretation: Push it, in the form of forcing the boundaries and forcing decisions that need to be made. When you don’t have a woman, you can’t cry about it, because you didn’t hold on to her properly. But if you do, I can rock your body. That work?
Otherwise this is an official “Fuck you”. 😀 Said with absolute love.
One of the things that I’m really liking about this book, is the suggested activity of writing love letters. Yes, to an extent, this furthers my fantasy about the ideals of love and my exploration of that emotion, but hey, what can one do? One of the letters is to my Evil Twin, now, the assignment didn’t take into the consideration that I actually have someone I consider my evil twin, but that’s beside the point. The other letter, is to someone I want to love, or want to love more. I’ve been drafting everything in my head, with a couple of additions to digital form. One of these days I will post them, once I consider them finished. And to be thoroughly honest, I’ve been enjoying the discoveries I’ve found. 😀
I think I’m finally hitting my balance, again. And I can honestly say, I haven’t gotten totally frustrated, yet, today. 😀
The world conspires for me, in mysterious ways….for I am, again, the office bitch because everyone is getting sick again. Yet, somehow, I can’t find a reason to complain. (Well, yeah, I can, but not justifiably).
EDIT: In furthering the conspiracy, my boss took away my day off tomorrow, and filled it with 3 clients.
The positive in all of this…I need the money.
Scorpio for this week:
I believe that doing the challenging assignments I’m about to describe will put you in alignment with cosmic rhythms, and make it more likely that you will attract grace and synchronicity into your life. You are, of course, under no obligation to carry them out. That’s because you have free will, and are always at liberty to choose a path that leads you away from grace and synchronicity. With that as a caveat, here are the roles I believe you should play in the coming week if you’d like to thrive: a catalytic X-factor; a tender wild card; a friendly shocker; a nonviolent bombshell; an agent provocateur who loves all you survey.
Hrmmmmmmm. I think I like this assignment. 😀
Sweetness, went and put last week’s tips and private clients cashflow into the bank, I now have $100 till I have enough to pay my federal taxes. Woooooooooohooooooooooooooo! And I have another investment idea I need to run by my brother. If I can get enough, gonna do some short-term CD investments to try and fund my move. 😀
Yeah, so I’m now 30. Woohoooooo!!!!!!! I’m supposed to feel an impending doom, besides the fact my bank account is almost empty, right? Eh, I don’t, and that is alright. 🙂 Yesterday was nice, I skipped my tournament for a day with my Scotsman. That whole “sleeping in is wonderful” thing kept me from going. Sleep schedule has been totally fucked up…thank you daylight savings time. I woke up on time today, thanks to the lovely sun being where it was supposed to be, vs that whole darkness till 9 crap. Went to the _gothfather_‘s Guy Fawkes party, with a very rich and tasty German chocolate cake for me and the birthday boy. Purrrrrrrrr. I GOT moonbird TIME!!!!! Gods I miss that woman, need to give her more hugs this afternoon. Also was able to see many others I have missed, including alekto and justicefire. Met a few new folks, who I hope to see later today, as well.
And, hopefully, I’ll be able to hit up the bookstore this afternoon, maybe snag a couple of printer cartridges so I can print out my REI gift card. Would be lovely. 😀
Sorry, that there’s no huge revelations here today, though, I am at an odd peace, which is nice. 🙂
So, I’m back down to my minimum, and probably won’t afford to be able to compete tomorrow. This sucks. I haven’t received the last of my last paycheck, and this next one isn’t all that pretty either. I’ve sent off a request to a job offer, and we’ll see how that pans out, hopefully beneficial to both the Club and to me.
Spent a good bit talking to my ET about moving to Cali, and hopefully, that will result in the plans for staying in the LA area and not up in San Fran. I’m feeling a bit torn right now, as I’m excited about the possibilities, but depressed that I’m iffy on doing what I want for my b-day. On the positive side, I picked up 3 more clients today, even though I wanted to leave early. But that does give me extra money on this paycheck, so I take my benefits where they appear. Just wish I could get that last bit, unless it’s going to be on this paycheck. Which, if it is, problems solved. However, it also means no training next week.
I want to sleep. I’m too tired and I my body is saying “You’d better sleep!!!!”
Scorpio for this week:
A drunk dominatrix sidled up to me at a party and said, “Reverend, please absolve me of my sins.” I’m not officially a priest, but in the spirit of fun and games I replied, “Why, my dear? Have you seen the error of your ways?” She spread her arms wide as she bowed, hissing like a serpent through a toothy smile. “Not at all, Reverend,” she said. “I just want to clear the docket so I can go out and commit a slew of fresh, new sins with crazy abandon.” I sprinkled a few drops of her Heineken on her head and channeled William Blake: “You’ll never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough. The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom. If the fool would persist in her folly she would become wise.” And now, Scorpio, I’m channeling the same blessing for you.
How does one know their boundaries, if one does not seek to cross them, from time to time? Much less, how would one know where the excesses lie, or what they consist of, if one has not seen them or experienced them? There are some things I know, like how much anger I never want to feel again. How much sorrow is too much….but two things that I would actually enjoy having too much of….I want to love to excess and feel an overwhelming amount of joy. Wouldn’t it be a trip to be drunk on those two, especially for no particular reason, at all.
