I read my horoscope occasionally, but it’s something I do for distraction and amusement. I don’t plan my life by the stars and I don’t think astrologers are all that accurate, either. What I do believe is that certain traits go along with certain zodiac signs and that timing is not everything – it is the only thing; so that all things happen for a reason and in their own time.

A long time ago, a friend of mine (a kind of spiritual guru) asked me if I could make my brain slow down. I laughed and she said, “Oh, honey, I’m serious!”  No, no I really can’t make it slow down. I have two speeds:  damn the torpedoes*  and unconscious. Well, wait. That’s probably inaccurate, because I have some pretty vivid dreams.

This isn’t the first time I’ve been admonished for making things too complicated. It’s a genetic defect.

This is my horoscope for the week

Capricorn, Sunday, 25 April 2010

Your Week Ahead: There are big implications and repercussions to the choices you are now making. Just as it is important to be strong and clear, it is essential to be open-minded. This week’s opposition of Saturn and Uranus brings a big drama to a head. For some while, you have been trying to make sense of a situation that has baffled you. You still don’t fully understand it – but, for all that current events are intensifying your confusion, they are bringing you the insight you need to see how a complex situation fits together. As long as you’re willing to learn, you’ll find out what you need to know. Then you’ll be sure of making the right choice.

Week Ahead Part Two – Love Focus: Something big has been bugging you for a while. You’ve been working hard to understand this matter. The more you try to make sense of a complicated issue, the more perplexing it becomes. That’s because you are actually dealing with something simple. You are looking at it from too many different angles. You are questioning too many factors. This week will bring clarity, comfort and comprehension. A penny will drop and a brighter picture will emerge. While you wait for this to happen, keep an open mind – and try to be patient with someone else’s strange behaviour. What looks like a problem… need not be one.

Interesting, isn’t it? Things are definitely looking up. Despite the lack of a job and a sort-of uncertain future, I feel better than I have in years.
