Bask in the glow...

My zodiac sign is Cancer. I don't usually follow my horoscope. Okay, well from time to time I have. And then there was that period as a young adult when I needed to know my rising sign along with all the signs in all my houses. The bit I still remember is that I am a Cancer with Scorpio rising. Checking in with the Universal Psychic Guild I mashed up my own zodiac profile:

"Cancers go through many new and full phases of experience. Life doesn't stand still for this sign, even if they remain in one place, because they live so much in their internal oceans of emotions. Love and romance matter more than anything else to this sign. Cancerians are fascinating, mysterious, stimulating and extremely alluring. Passion, desire and power go hand in hand for Scorpios. Their biggest challenge and test in life is choosing between the power of love and the love of power. Coming to grips with their extraordinary emotional depths and sensitivity isn't easy for those around them. They are different from all other zodiac signs and this difference has them walking, working and loving to a different beat."

My summary:

I often live internally but, once out of my shell I live out loud.


What is this confession all about, you wonder? Well, today I added a gadget to my google page: Daily Horoscope. I don't know why I felt compelled to do this. And then, I read it. Weird I say. It hit on a current topic in my life -- quality vs. quantity of friends. As I approach this forty-something birthday I am feeling a bit out of sorts. Reexamining what I've done and what I still want to do. What I really want to do, not just my bucket list. Who my friends are and why some have come and gone. It's a heady contemplation and one I doubt I'll fully understand or figure out anytime soon. So, what did today's horoscope have for me:

"Bask in the glow of camaraderie as you spend special time with those who support your dreams."

I am so damn thankful I have the people in my life that I do. My kids are amazing and terrific. My small group of friends accept me for who I am. So, despite my worries about heading toward my mid-forties I will do it out loud with a group of family and quality friends. What more could I ask for?
