“Melancholic and lovable is the trick, right? You’ve got to be able to show that you have these feelings. In the game of life, you get these feelings and how you deal with those feelings. What you do when you are trying to deal with a melancholy. A melancholy can be sweet. It’s not a mean thing, but it’s something that happens in life — like autumn.”
— Bill Murray

If Your Birthday is Sept. 21
(The Day of Current Taste) | Virgo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
So often, it seems that how we feel about ourselves depends on how intimate partners, friends and the wide world feel about us. The key to true emotional freedom is to liberate yourself from this and, in the process, to feel good about yourself all the time. This calls for detachment and self-awareness, which open the potential for a whole different kind of love.
Written in the Planets
As the saying goes, “Divide and conquer.” Set two groups at loggerheads, and you can gain power over them both. This tactic is being applied to its height in these turbulent days; yet, as aspects from Mercury and the Sun imply, you need not fall for it. As Eric has said in recent pieces, try to find common ground instead. We are all human beings; that’s somewhere to start. We only have the one planet. Furthermore, we are a social species and we depend on each other. This is unfashionable thinking; yet it’s the truth, and the more people are willing to admit it, the better.
