[Added July 31, 2008]
It’s funny to me that this post gets more traffic than any other post in this blog. Well, not so much funny as kind of sad. Especially since it really didn’t contain anything really interesting to anyone who isn’t the same sign as me and wasn’t viewing the post on the relevant dates.
So, I felt I needed to add some useful information to the post, since you’re here anyway. Sound like a plan?
Jonathan Cainer is a UK astrologer. A friend of mine passed his URL on to me in late 2006. I don’t normally pay attention to horoscopes, though I do like Astrocenter’s when I bother reading it — usually I just never open the e-mail because I’m not usually interested in what the Universe apparently has planned for me. Most daily horoscopes are so vague as to be useless. Jonathan Cainer’s, though, I read most days. His horoscopes are surprisingly pertinent. To me, anyway. Your mileage may vary. I frequently read the ‘scopes for friends and family members, and they’re usually pertinent to them as well. They’re more like Astrocenter’s horoscopes in the sense that they are not vague.
If you’re on Facebook, so is he. You can add him as a friend (not that he’s going to become your best bud or anything, you understand) and you can even add his horoscopes application to your profile there. He’s also on Myspace but I’m not a Myspace fan so I’m not going to help you out there — go to his Web site if you want more information about that.
His Web site offers additional astrological tidbits, including his really marvelous Astro Love Computer and daily thoughts. You should really check it all out.
Being alone is not the same as loneliness. You can be alone in a room full of people; it is a state of choice. You’re not lonely at this time, although you might feel alone. It is your choice who you associate with, but you may be attracting a few strange looks at the moment if you’re doing your Greta Garbo thing. Far better to say to people, ‘Look, I’m just taking some personal space, OK?’ It’s a good day to gather your thoughts as well as getting your act together in a personal way – just don’t let others befuddle you. Be aware that you’re acutely sensitive at the moment.
Your Weekend: There’s an element of personal creativity around you at the moment, and where better to express it than in your one-to-one relationships, whether that be with partner/spouse or close friend? Don’t let yourself get into a rut. I’m not suggesting you suddenly light lots of firecrackers, but it is a good weekend for socialising and reminding yourself how important good quality company is to you. And it wouldn’t hurt to remind others of how important you are to them either, even though this may have to be done in a somewhat subtle way. Stay in the centre of things, and then you won’t feel left out.
Your Week Ahead Forecast: Things always get a bit intense around this time of year. It is something to do with the approaching equinox. Your mood begins to alter and your mind gets made up. Suddenly you feel ready to fix whatever you have been previously putting up with patiently. You are no longer willing to be backed into a corner or trapped by awkward circumstances. You may not make much of a fuss, but in your own sweet way you start to move the goalposts and rewrite the rulebooks. Some years you make a few small adjustments. Other years you reach life-changing choices. This year, you are being brave. You will not regret this.
Sometimes, we do all the things we are supposed to, but they just don’t work. We end up starting to suspect that somewhere in the cosmos there’s a mischievous imp with a wrecking agenda. Its aim is to create chaos wherever we go and whatever we do. Why bother, we say to ourselves, attempting anything? Sooner or later, surely, it will all go horribly wrong. Maybe, sooner or later, it will. But the fact remains that, right now, no imp can stop your current plans from working well.
