The stars impell., they don't compell

I always read my horoscope at the end of the day, well, usually. Today was no exception, but this one kinda weirded me out a bit...because I had a very unusual conversation with my Mom-rational and sane.

She was going on about Oliver, and how I was putting the elder dogs at risk.....(they are at the kennel) and I said, very calmly "Mother, I do know a lot about animal husbandry and I am a little resentful that you are saying that I would put ANY of my animals at risk. I will bring the elders home after antibiotics have had a chance to take effect."

And she shut up-but not in cranky way-we went to water aerobics, had a good time, yadda yadda.

I thought it was strange, made a mental note to try it again....and then read this...

Your relationships are on your mind right now -- everything from clients at work to your mate or kids. It's a good time to express your feelings directly, as people are ready to hear just about anything.

isn't that interesting? i don' tread my daily ones anymore, as they just annoy me, but i definitely believe in horoscopes in general and when i meet new people and i instantly like/dislike them, i always find out later that their sign was either compatible with mine or not.

same glasses, same hairstyle, you classy doll you! what's your star sign? that will be the true clincher!

Funny you and your horoscope should mention it because it's actually one of ... well my only new year's resolution to start telling people how I feel. Certain people who are very close to me often say things that hurt my feelings but instead of calmly explaining to them why I've said/done what I've done and that it hurts me that they would suggest otherwise, I usually get defensive and yell at them, which only makes them defensive in return. So far, I'm really sucking at it but I do at least replay the discussion in my head afterwards and think about what I should have said so hopefully it's a start. What were you thinking right before you said this to your Mother? I need to find a trigger that says "wait, calm down, think about what you need to say"

I'm a Scorpio. FY-you are either a Pisces or an Aquarius, right?

Michele, I was thinking "I know more about dog husbandry than you could ever conceive of knowing...who are YOU to tell ME about dog husbandry..." and that last thought is what came out, although nicely. We never want to toot our own horns for some reason, but in this case it was just stating the truth.

Mim, I love the magical part of the world.

Forever Young said...

aha scorpio, yes they love too much and too hard, but thwart them and you will feel the lash of their scorpion tail. i am aquarian, but pisces is your ideal match!

I had an affair with an aquarian once-it wasn't an "ideal match" but it was a heck of a lot of fun.
