As children, we’re given one all-or-nothing relationship option, which is marriage.

If you hit some rough water on the way to your birthday, please don’t take it as a premonition that you’re facing a difficult year. Far to the contrary. I see the next few weeks as a time in which you can finally purge yourself of some greatly exaggerated cosmic fears, and connect with the higher truth of who you are.
