Redstar Celebration Week begins

I received my first birthday wishes from Astrology.com in my Hotmail junk folder this afternoon. 

(Actual date for those whom I have not yet drilled it into their heads: August 26)

From my personology book, re: Virgo I: August 26 – Sept 2, The Week of System Builders

“This period can be likened to the time in a person’s life when the instinct to consolidate and solidify existing structures, marriages or partnerships, businesses, etc. asserts itself…at this time, many individuals take part in service-oriented activities, whether in the family, professional or social life.  The desire to be helpful and to constructively influence the course of events manifests here.”

Some of my favorite excerpts:

“Structure is an important theme in the lives of Virgo I’s, a kind of insurance policy they inevitably fall back on in times of stress. 

Mental insistence and concentration are often their greatest strengths…

Although those born in the Week of System Builders seem to do well living and working with people who know how to cooperate and to share the burdens of everyday life,  it cannot be assumed that they want to be team players.  Virgo I’s need to spend a lot of time alone, and do best when their contributions to the well-being of a social or family group are made on their own terms.

They like to sit back and watch, preferring to observe carefully before acting; this quality of objectivity, and the evaluations that result from it, can make them extremely valuable to a company or family.  Writing reports, stating conclusions verbally, and chronicling in different media what they see around them are often some of their best-developed abilities. 

Virgo I’s tend to be fixed in their mental attitudes, and this is likely to arouse antagonism…

…their best relationships are often with those with whom they can just let go and have a good time. 

Those born in this week may need to free themselves from the constant demands of other people if they are to gain the space they need to develop their own expressive, creative and financially productive side.”

There you have it:  I’m a rigid, intense, antagonistic, reclusive tattling busybody!  😉

And that’s why You Love Me!


Happy Birthday to ME!

(well wishes accepted through 9/2/07)


(Because astrology is a science…just like Kiehl’s employees are chemists!)

    No, that’s not why we love you… we love you because you are smaht and wicked pissa, and quite possibly still destined for greatness. Having seen so many sides of you, I know that the intense analyst is part of it… but she’s not all of it, and I also know that there’s a sensitive, sometimes fragile soul in there who gets perplexed with unfamiliar feelings. I think Virgos (my dad, Virgo 3, among others) don’t like the idea that they too are vulnerable… much the way your piscean opposites shy away from the notion that we’re not always limp emotional sponges tossed from dramatic event to dramatic event, but in fact have a well of inner strength. It’s yin and yang (and yes kind of scientific). Happy Birthday, Red Star.
