Free Will Astrology

Sagittarius: Let's say, hypothetically, that you came into possession of an instrument that might allow you to wield supernatural power: a magic wand, for example, or an Aladdin's lamp, or ruby slippers like the kind Dorothy had in the story of the Wizard of Oz. But let's also hypothesize that the instrument had a quality that made it problematic for you to use: maybe the wand was six feet long, weighed 200 pounds, and was hard to pick up, let alone wave around; or perhaps the ruby slippers were much too small to fit on your feet. What then? I suspect that the vignette I just outlined is an apt metaphor for the dilemma you will soon face. There is a solution that will allow you to tap into the mojo of the magic instrument, but you'll have to be dogged and ingenious to discover it.

Thankful Thursday

'Cause Beth said I should:
01. It's my birthday and people remembered me.
02. I've got a great boss.
03. 2 week paid vacation is soon.
04. I have a snuggly kitty when she's not being a butthead.
05. I have a new computer.
06. I got in touch with an old friend who is doing well.
07. I've got new DVDs to watch.
08. I'm going away for the weekend.
09. I will be hosting an orphan's Yule/Christmas thing.
10. Sushi tonight!

Under the WTF category...

GOOD: zunger remembered me, my birthday and my love of flowers.

BAD: "Microsoft doesn't seem to like those deliveries - or at least, that's what florists were telling me."

... ...

Wait one cotton picking minute.

MS STOPPED ME FROM GETTING FLOWERS ON MY BIRTHDAY? Those bastards!! Oh, someone needs to die somewhere!

But, I'm really happy at the thought. Thank you, Yony, for the attempt. I appreciate it.
