Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Happy Valentine Daze, Scorpio! After extensive meditation about what advice would be most useful for your love life in the coming months, I decided on this gentle rant from the South African poet Shabbir Banoobhai: “Love is a mystery. And the reason why it is a mystery and should remain a mystery is that knowledge of it would give us mastery over it — would enable us to manipulate it — and love, truth, God, cannot be manipulated. Hence the Prophet exclaimed, ‘My Lord, increase my bewilderment in Thee.'”
I totally agree with this, hence why I accept love when I feel it and express it as it feels the need to be expressed. Hell, it’s one of my life’s endevours, because once it opens up in your mind’s eye, you love the world and everything in it, not just one thing. And suddenly, not only does loneliness disappear, but the connections to everything take root and grow.
On the other foot, can we get off the Val’s day stuff?
