Here’s what my horoscope says for today:
Upsets regarding your career or the activities that take up most of your time are likely to negatively affect your self-confidence. Don’t fall into this trap, Taurus. The forces are beyond your control and the situation doesn’t reflect any shortcomings on your part. You might have to put in some effort to straighten things out and return to normal. It’s a pain, but you’d best do it without delay.
My fortune cookie:
You will make a change for the better.
That could be large and bold for emphasis, but why do I get the feeling that it’s a command?
And finally, my tarot card, randomly chosen:
The Chariot – Victory (Inversus)
Picture Julius Caesar riding his chariot triumphantly into Rome. He has defeated his enemies and conquered vast, new lands. This is the spirit of the Chariot. Card 7 represents the victories that are possible through willpower and self-mastery. A military image is appropriate for the Chariot because this card stands for the strengths associated with combat – discipline, grit, determination and assertiveness. The Chariot represents the positive aspects of the ego. A healthy ego is one that is strong and self-assured. It knows what it wants and how to get it. We can get annoyed at someone whose ego is too healthy, but we often turn to that person to lead us through difficult moments. We know he or she won’t be wishy-washy.
But see, the card is upside down! So I probably won’t be straightening things out, returning to normal (whatever that is), obtaining self-mastery etc. etc. I kind of LIKE the wishy-washy me.
Besides, it’s too damned cold today for anyone to have a smoothly functioning brain. My bones are chilled. I want to be whiny.
My new kindle hasn’t arrived yet. Waaaah! And I’m afraid to order any Arbonne stuff in case it gets delivered to my doorstep and flash freezes before I can get to it. I can’t decide what dates to put in for holidays, although I have to take 4 weeks before the 13th of September, and make up my mind before the end of this month. My shoulder still hurts. I should go to a chiropractor or get a massage, and W. just reminded me I have to go get my new headlights installed.
I’m going back to bed.
HAHA! just kidding. More coffee! No shortcomings! No delays! Willpower!! A pox on difficult moments. Gawd. I’ve worn myself out just thinking about it. January sucks.
