|09:56 pm - heh, and double heh|
Growing up, I never was much good at recess. I much preferred to stay inside and read a book, either in the library or the classroom. I suppose you could say things haven't much changed - I slip quietly into a corner when freed up, tending to keep to myself. I'm usually happy to celebrate things with other people, but rarely go out and delight in my own.
However, the Real Astrology [see below] for this week is at least the fourth thing I have encountered (possibly the fifth or sixth) in the last little while whose message is in part "Shoo! Go play outside, get some fresh air or something. No, put the book down - there's time for that later. Go on, now, git!!" In the best possible way, mind you, but the broom is definitely there.
So ok, I'm going, I'm going. I'm not quite sure where yet, or for what. But perhaps taking it by ear is part of the point. I suppose I can start with my 38th birthday on Sunday - and after the last dark period I can say that clawing my way through to reach it is something worth celebrating. *bow*

Week beginning September 30

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The cosmos is finally ready to discharge you from your heavy, dark assignments. Your main duty in the coming weeks is to seek relief and release in the most constructive ways possible. Celebrate, Libra, don't thrash. Rejoice and look to the future, don't thunder against the ordeal you've completed. I nominate the exuberant Libran poet Michael McClure to be your role model during this time. The poet Aaron Shurin has described McClure as a reveler who "puts the attitude in beatitude," and as an alchemist who's "fluent in two languages, English and Beast." That's exactly what you should be like as you lift your own spirits. Now please read aloud this paraphrase of a McClure poem: "GRAHHRR! RAHHR! RAHRIRAHHR! HRAHR! I'm not sugar, I'm love looking for sugar!"

rock and roll!
I love it. I'm not even one of Rob's fans, generally speaking, but I love it. So, ready to put the attitude in beatitude?
