This horoscope has been stuck to my fridge with a magnet for the last 4 years. I remember cutting it out of the Village Voice, and thinking that it was truly written especially for me. It seemed to address all of my issues: my avoidant, risk-averse introversion; my tendancy to work hard on other people’s projects while letting my own die quiet deaths; my pattern of seizing obsessively upon terrible, terrible people because they are terrible to me in ways that I find fascinating; my general shyness; and my willingness to fall for flashy but inhumane beasts when it comes to romance.
It’s sad because even though I recognize all these things, and have a horoscope reminding me of it, I still do the same things, over and over and over. . .
