Gemini Horoscope for week of October 30, 2003...or, alternatively, garnetdagger. And I've been working on the anxiety thing specifically. When sithjawa was writing Sunday night, I got all in a tizzy because I was worried about maybe having done something wrong. Then I realized I was kind of mentally making an ass of myself, and forced myself to explore all the futurepaths that I could, not just the negative one my mind had clamped onto. Turned out to be nothing like I'd been worrying, of course...
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
"You may have been born to be a worrywart," says Edward Hallowell in his book Worry: Controlling It and Using It Wisely. "Some people have a nervous system that is like an alarm system that goes off too easily." In my experience, only about eight percent of the Gemini tribe fit this description in normal times. But between late October and mid-November every year, the number zooms. Many of you suddenly act as if you're hard-wired to generate anxiety. You seem to enjoy scaring yourself silly. Why? What's going on? It's true that this is a favorable time to confront your doubts and fears. But the point is to conquer them, not let them consume and demoralize you. My advice, then, is to unleash your inner warrior immediately. Halloween costume suggestions: your favorite superhero or crusader for justice.
Cancer Horoscope for week of October 30, 2003
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
New species of delight are headed your way, lucky one. Outbursts of exotic bliss await you. There's only one obstacle that could interfere with your enjoyment: your attachment to old familiar ways of stirring up the good times. Be willing to put them aside, at least temporarily, so that you can be fully available for sources of future happiness. Keep William Blake's poem in mind: "He who bends to himself a joy / Does the winged life destroy; / But he who kisses the joy as it flies / Lives in eternity's sunrise." Halloween costume suggestion: your favorite bird.
