I rarely check my horoscope, but...   
09:32pm 07/04/2008
mood: down
On a whim I checked my horoscope, and I don't know if it's helpful or relevant to any other Scorpio on the planet, but it was spot on for me:

I feel as though I am suffering in a physical way by my isolation and gritted-teeth attempts at self-discipline. Definitely learning a trade, a mode of being.

"In her book Waiting for God, French mystic and political activist Simone Weil (1909-1943) wrote a passage I'd love for you to keep in mind during the coming weeks: "When an apprentice gets hurt, or complains of being tired, the workmen have this fine expression: 'It is the trade entering his body.' Each time that we have some pain to go through, we can say to ourselves quite truly that it is the order and beauty of the world that are entering our body." I encourage you, Scorpio, to adopt this redemptive attitude about the suffering you have been experiencing."

  Tiny updates:
  • 12:01 key reason I miss my office: I have people around me who I can talk to sporadically through the day. Oh well. #
  • 13:56 Ok, c'mon me, buckle down and stop moping. #
  • 16:16 Must finish this Kant reading for tomorrow. All the pollen in the air has me really drowsy. Yoga first. #
