Lively, Imaginative

Oct 31, 2011

Today's Horoscope for Aquarius

Your lively, imaginative spirit is in tune with the collective. The need for a worldly consciousness and evolving humanity has become more obvious to you as time goes by. These issues come up today, but don't be surprised if you get a reality check. Your dreams may be unrealistic. Someone could try to burst your bubble, so be careful. Don't lose sight of your goals.

"The need for a worldly consciousness and evolving humanity..." By 7:30 this morning, Dora and I had been almost run over by speeding neighbors not one, not two, but three times. Yeah. The evolving humanity needs to take shape soon here in Connecticut. I think we need some humanity before it can even evolve.

Bubble almost burst. But not gonna happen.

Happy Monday. How'd your day start? Does your scope sound better?

Bold, Baby!

Stella Mental P is getting her groove back!

You Are Bold

You are decisive and determined. You are good at taking action when the time is right.

You are honest and even a little critical. When it comes to your opinions, you don't hold back.

You are headstrong and very set on doing what you want to do. It's hard to convince you not to follow your gut.

You are daring and courageous. You're willing to take all sorts of risks and stand up to anyone who questions you.

This hits a little too close to home. How about you? Are You Bouncy, Bold, Behaved, or Balanced?

Talking and Traveling? Well Alrighty Then...

Today's Aquarius Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
October 24, 2011

Your mental radar is working at full speed today. You are especially alert to everything that is going on around you and you are more able to handle complex problems or sensitive issues with relative ease. The desire to talk, share your feelings, and open up to others could be strong. This is a good time for conversation and for writing and communications of all kinds, and can also be a good time for travel.

Creativity: Good ~ Love: Good ~ Business: Good

Do you think this means my Muse will be coming home today? Or do I have to travel to go get her back? Fiji? Bora Bora? Where should we go to find my Muse? And how will we know her? Do you know what yours looks like?

Is your horoscope better?

Singing? Limericks?

Aquarius: Daily Overview

for October 17, 2011
Don't be surprised if, in the middle of a conversation, your mind starts to wander today. At first, you might think that you're entering a phase of introversion. But in reality, you might just be bored with the method of discourse. Using the spoken word to explain ideas is so mundane! Try singing your reply, or jotting down a quick limerick that expresses what you're thinking. It's up to you to push other people into communicating in more creative, meaningful ways.

I am all about the wandering mind business. I think I have that down to a science. But, Singing? Trust me. No one wants that. But that Limerick suggestion? Just may work. How is your day shaping up? I hope it's a good one.

Fall Break

I have enjoyed the periodic company of my children this past week.
Periodic being the operative word.
Augie brought some clothes to be laundered.
Imagine that.
Only three more loads of darks and this will be finished.
I wonder if he has done any laundry since he left here in August?
And every single sock is inside out.
He can take care of sorting those puppies....

Secretly? I loved every minute of it.

Happy Weekend, my friends!

The ones where they come home for the weekend,
and we have things to do:
In the end, we went to lunch and shopping.
Shocker, I know.

And then we have the boy:
Please take special note of the time this text came through this morning.
And guess who,
because she is a woman of a certain age,
was awake for the day after this.
I am happy to report his resume is great.
And my car is making the round trip to Philadelphia today.
So he can get his suit.
For an internship interview tomorrow.
And it is all okay with me.

They do, after all, have to decide on my habitat and care--
down the road....

This is Getting Interesting....

Oct 10, 2011

Today's Horoscope for Aquarius

You tend to be unconventional, but today you could outdo even you. A spiritual experience could be at the heart of it. You're changing in ways that are obvious to everyone. Don't worry if they're confused. You'll be confused, too. Think of yourself as a caterpillar becoming a butterfly! The transition may be strange, but the butterfly is far lovelier than the caterpillar!
I promise you all that I am not making these things up. And boy do I ever hope they're right. And how does yours look?

Thoroughly Thoreau

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.

-Henry David Thoreau

Aren't you glad I spared you the quote about eating beans from Walden? Now go forth and have a wonderful weekend, my friends.

You are always enthusiastic and grateful for every day you have. sometimes

You are cheerful and energetic. You are a do-gooder who likes to keep busy. sometimes
