Happy hatch day _gothfather_ ! I’d say I have a bottle of wine for you, but that would be redundant. 😉
Scorpio (December 23-November 21)
If you use a cell phone, you have in your possession a metal called coltan, a component that’s essential to the phone’s function. Most of the world’s coltan comes from the Congo, and is mined by Rwandans who survived their country’s genocide in the 1990s. They often work for militias that sell coltan illegally to finance their military operations. It so happens that the land where this metal lies is also the home of the Mountain gorilla, an endangered species that is being decimated as the miners and militias kill them for food and savage their habitat. Keep this in mind the next time you call a friend. While you’re at it, Scorpio, use Google and your imagination to meditate on the origins of all the important resources in your life. It’s prime time to know more about their origins. You will benefit from getting familiar with the roots of whatever gives you power.
Yep, I’m late, oh well. I think that this is a good idea, I’ve been exploring some roots, of late, particularly with some of my outlooks and opinions. But it also comes down to weighing what is needed vs desired and where a compromise can be struck. Of course, in that line, sometimes there are no compromises that can be found, and it becomes a fight between one and the other and what wins out. Though, that requires a decision as to whether one wishes to lay down and die (aka accept), or go out fighting (aka working towards an outcome favourable to the individual/group). I think that echoes throughout quite a few things in my life, of late. Then again, it’s also what’s isolating me, as well (with some help that isn’t myself).
I felt your fingers traipse across my lips, satin’d spark to flicker into flame. Consuming me around you, into you, until we burned and melted into each other.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Studies suggest that the average person who reaches old age has been upset with some family member or another for a total of 30 years. Is that a standard you’d like to match, Scorpio? If not, you will have an excellent chance to reduce any inclination you might have to hold grudges in 2009. The coming months will bring you ripe opportunities to dissolve tensions between you and your kin. You will also be more skilled than usual at navigating your way with grace and diplomacy through complications involving the home and domestic issues.
Well, given what I’m doing behind the scenes, it’s burying the hatchet with my brother. Though, I think I forgave everything when he admitted that his oldest daughter is exactly like me, and told my Mum to not inform his wife of this fact. But I do have to admit, I greatly appreciate the fact that he now understands where I come from, and actually believes in an idea that has come out of my head.
