Do you read your horoscope? I read two–my sun sign and my moon sign. I am an Aries moon and a Virgo in the traditional zodiac. I am pretty stereotypical in my Virgo traits, and I find it amusing when people I really connect with will often have birthdays very close to mine. But it is my moon sign that I find to be a pretty good guide. It’s funny to go through stretches where every day there is something so completely in line with where I am or how I feel.
Today’s Aries horoscope said, “Shine your light of love and good feelings will reflect back in return.” I gotta tell you, my light of love is pretty flippin’ dim right about now. I am so tired of trying to smile, to be patient, to be helpful, to salve bruised egos and sacrifice my own. And that’s when I am AWAY from home and teenagers!
But that is at least partly why I follow my sign. I know today I am going to have to reach back (kinda like Jon Lester did the other night against the Yankees), and find just a bit more to get through today’s nine innings. I am only in the top of the fourth and as Eck would say, I am already gassed.
