Oh, Mr. Brezsny, it's the context of this one that is disturbing, more than anything.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): For years, Salt Lake City was undisputed Jell-O champion on the world, with the highest per capita consumption. But in 1999, Des Moines, Iowa catapulted into the lead. In response, chef Scott Blackerby staged a "Take Back the Jell-O Title" Recipe Contest at his restaurant in Salt Lake, and thousands of Utahans signed petitions that helped make Jell-O the official snack of the state. Soon the city had retaken the top spot, where it remains to this day. I hope this story serves to motivate and inspire you in the coming days, Libra. It's time for you to reclaim a lost title or crown that you once possessed and that really should belong to you again.

Huh. That story serves to inspire me in exactly the other direction. I thought the moral of that story was going to be, "What a lot of bother it is to regain the Jell-O Title. Who cares? Let it go."

I'm still stuck in a "Salt Lake City - ewww!" endless loop since equating myself with it makes my skin crawl. If I make it any further I get thrown into a "jello - ewww!" loop - so I doubt I've absorbed any advice of substance from the rest of the paragraph.

And yeah, I was expecting something along the lines of what you were - I've been awfully zen about things like the passing of old dreams/titles/self-images of late myself. I've actually been wrestling with a poem about it for a while now.
