snug as a bug.

sitting at a most perfect ambient dimly lit coffee shop sitting at a small cute table with a candle flickering, looking upon the youth of tarpon springs as they prepare themselves for a night of several acts. the musical selection before mic check seemed to fit snugly into the situation. have been able to actually initiate contact with a few of the bystanders. now some kid is playing radiohead on a keyboard. yes, he is singing karma police. oh boy. oh, that was just the soundcheck? now they're trying to fool.

perfect life.

sorry about the long hiatus.

i am:

officially out of my mothers place,
living in a small greek sponge diving town with my quote unquote new boyfriend who is taking super good care of me... he is from georgia, has toured with neutral milk hotel and recorded julian kosters side project (but julian apparently owes him 400 bucks for it. and informed me that he's totally gay... how I slept in the same place as him and had breakfast with him, and strangely enough couldn't even guess it. the tight sweater may have been a hint.)
working at my cafe in clearwater with my amazing new family, chris drives me there and i take an hour long bus ride back.
my thanksgiving consisted of cuddling to betty boop cartoons, walking to the sponge docks, and basically loving the shit out of my life right now. everything is going perfectly finally and i thank my lucky stars. (and mars.)

past, present, future talk

Yesterday: Today during the day you may feel like being alone with your thoughts and feelings. Your mood is not usually bad or depressed, you simply desire to be calm and reflective. But you are probably not in the mood for frivolity. You prefer the company of serious people, if any, and you want the conversation to be about important topics. Under this influence you may feel the need to consult someone whose higher vantage point you respect. You are able to balance your emotional needs with your sense of duty and obligation. While you are aware of your feelings, you do not let them overwhelm you. In all proceedings you are thrifty and careful. You are also very careful and thorough in your approach to any kind of work now. It is not likely that you will have to do any task over, nor will anyone else have to clean up after you. 

Today:  During the day you will feel much more emotional than usual. This, of course, can be either good or bad, depending upon how you normally relate to your emotions. If you are ill at ease with your feelings, you will not consciously be aware of them. But you will relate to people in automatic ways, conditioned by habit. You will respond unconsciously to small cues put out by other persons that neither you nor they are aware of. The problem here is that you are unable to see each new moment and person afresh. On the other hand, if you can handle the emotions that are aroused, you will be able to relate to others with great feeling and empathy. This influence is excellent for occasions when you and another person must relate at a very deep, intense level. 

Tomorrow: During this time, you will have many group discussions and conversations with others; you will meet new people, possibly travel quite a bit and certainly have more contact with relatives and immediate neighbors.You feel that you have to communicate with as many people as possible. This is a very good time for all kinds of intellectual activities. It is not a good time to try to settle down and relax. The tempo of events in your environment is likely to be too fast, and it will be difficult to avoid getting caught up in it. Nevertheless you should try sometimes to disconnect yourself from this frantic pace, because it may get to the point that you are continually distracted and unable to think properly. For this reason it is not the best time to try to reach a conclusion on some matter. 


on a quick note.

No longer at my mothers.
On my own path.
Don't worry about me,
I'll be just fine.

out of my cage, ready to see. what on earth will ensue, beats the hell outta me.

Saturday, November 19, 2011

but longed for still.

The free bird leaps
on the back of the win
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and is tune is heard
on the distant hillfor the caged bird
sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze
an the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

"I'm just like butter in your hands!"


yippie skippie

got to enjoy the late eve before a day off with a new friend from france named steven, we escapaded in his jeep wrangler last night and went to his awesome pad on the private part of clearwater beach, hung out on his balcony having brilliant conversation while enjoying the tantalizing view of the ocean, waves crashing, lightning out in the distance. it was remarkable. he said he was quite on his own, needing a friend, and I concurred needing the same, and so we just chitchatted away. was supposed to hang out with a new friend from st. pete but rescheduled, just really needed a somewhat calm evening after tripping/falling at work yesterday (kitchen was overloaded with boxes for the jazz fest our owner is running/catering) and getting bit by a spider. I have plenty of time to hang out with all my new buddies... and I'm so excited to do so!

OH MY GOD WHAT A SHOW. got to get up front, up close and personal & jammed with some awesome people. they (the band) were all so studly, and i swear that tommy shaw and i shared a moment! confetti rained down during 'rockin' the paradise' (one of the two encores, the other being renegade) also played lady, too much time on my hands, come sail away... and this one, which I've decided to dedicate to myself.

also while sitting on the ledge of the bay, two dolphins were twirling around underneath me... no one else was around except another guy who witnessed it, and said 'i think they want to make you their queen.' DOLPHIN QUEEN!

While most who know me knows damn well what happened already, I still get questioned by others constantly. here is the quickest, longest answer I've been able to pull out of my buttcrack:

I had a bad leg injury two years ago... was 'carrying a box'* as heavy as i almost, lost balance, landed onto the cement under my right knee (with the extra weight) ... thought it was just bruised but it stayed bruised and sore for weeks... pain kept advancing throughout the months and i went to the hospital twice (first alone, they didnt take me seriously, second with a co-worker helping me voice what was wrong, still didnt get taken seriously).. was living on my own and supporting myself but was doing hardcore food service jobs and it was killing me... was trying to troop it out but i'd get let go of each place after about 5 months or so... basically the owners would let me go because they could see something was wrong and would express that i shouldnt be doing such jobs in such condition but I had no choice. the pain was driving me to drink like a fish to cope and I basically was a very easily irritable, depressed, hurt person. when I eventually got let go of the last place I worked for up north, my mom finally heard my plea of 'I can't go on' --- so moving down here, I finally got the help I needed... she helped me figure it out, was helping me be persistent with these shitheads of doctors who try to give you a run around and no answer (but still expecting a bill... like the first ortho who said i didnt need surgery after I got the MRI clearly indicating I had three ganglion cysts deep in the back of my right leg which at the two year point last september, i was experiencing #10 pain [on the scale of 1-10] and crying in agony most of the time... second one exclaimed 'the first one told you you didnt need it? really?' and was the one who conducted the surgery....... anyways... thats what happened. first job involving working hard and being on my feet for 12 hours = a lot for the newly healed leg to take... but I think it's holding up.

Ah, glad I won't be explaining that anymore. whoever asks gets redirected here.

*only people who know me will understand why this is asterik'd.

really? REALLY?

spending entire days walking all 
over creation job-hunting equals

handgun slinging.

rosy lips & cheeks

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
   If this be error and upon me proved,
   I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

ineffable invincibility

Two doodles from one of my favorite
  Hyperbole and a Half  posts:

Worry Dolls

Worry Dolls: I've had this headband ever since traveling to San Antonio, Texas when I was 10 or 12... worry dolls originated in Guatemala, where the Ancient Mayans would make these little dolls out of scraps of leftover fabric and splinters of wood. They're supposed to be put under the pillow as to help aide worry and insomnia in both children and adults.

I found directions to make more, which I'm going to attempt soon!

To make your own Worry Dolls you will need the following:

    * Garbage bag ties (three per doll)
    * Coloured cotton
    * Scraps of paper
    * Scissors
    * Glue
    * Felt tip pen or marker
    * Cloth bag or a small painted wooden box

Each Worry Doll will be about three inches high, a little larger than the traditional type, but they will still work to the same ends. You can of course make your Worry Dolls with splinters of wood and scrap materials like the Mayans if you so wish, the process is much the same.

   1. Twist two of the garbage ties together about one inch from the end. Leave the short ends together for the doll's head, and separate the long ends for the legs.
   2. Wrap the third garbage tie around the other two and twist to make the doll's arms. Cut if necessary for the doll's arms to be the same length. Bend the ends of the ties for hands and feet.
   3. Tie the end of a long piece of cotton around the center of the doll and wrap the cotton around the body and down one leg. Then wind the cotton back up the leg. Wind cotton up and down the other leg and tie off the loose ends.
   4. Wrap the chest and arms of the doll in the same way that the legs were wrapped.
   5. Fold a small piece of paper in half, and trim to a circle shape for a head and face. Fold the head over the twist tie ends, glue in place, and add a face with the pen or marker. Now you have a Worry Doll!
   6. Repeat the steps above five times, and then find a suitable cloth bag or box to put them all in.

Once you have created a complete set of Worry Dolls, use them wisely!

oh what a sweet surrender

<3 mike patton, and his creative fans.

bus talk

two days ago after a call center interview (for macys...) I was on quite the loaded bus sitting in the back with a few blue collar guys, who were nodding off (after apparently having worked since 5am.) people up north can make fun of some folks down here all they want, but manual labor looks/sounds like a bitch, and someone's gotta do it, right?
so anyways, one of them wakes up and starts talking to me, asking me why I'm dressed up.
me: "I just went to a job interview."
him: "did you get it?"
me: "don't know yet. it's at a call center though, and would entail two 12 hour days and two 8 hour days a week."
him: "oh wow. that doesn't sound like fun. you don't belong there. you should just get your boyfriend to---"
me: "I don't have one."
seemed a bit surprised, the sleep won him over again, and then when he got off the bus, said, "well, I hope everything works out for you, ma'am."

going for another interview today. 'woop woop.'

my so called, 'non-existent' life

November 3rd, 2011
A fleeting depression
Weak, transient effect: This influence can indicate a period of fleeting depression. Today during the day you are inclined to feel lonely and out of touch with others. Sometimes you have a pronounced sense that no one loves you, whether or not it is true. It is very important to realize that your moods and sensations under this influence often do not reflect reality, even though they seem to. One area where you can have real trouble is in relationships. You will find it unusually difficult to relate emotionally to another person during this time. Either you are caught up in internal negativism, or you feel so cold and insensitive that you do not register signals from other people very well. This in turn leads to failures of communication and genuine misunderstandings. Obviously this is not a good time to become involved in an emotionally delicate situation.

Who I am.

Something I've ignored forever, but from a new mentor (who used to be a psychic) he gave me two websites for daily and monthly insights...

Today, November 2nd's:
Maternal instincts 

Weak, transient effect: This influence is good for all kinds of relationships in that all your contacts with others today during the day are warm and emotional. You do not choose superficial or formal contacts but instead desire to make a personal connection with everyone you meet. At the same time you feel a strong need to protect and nurture those whom you are close to. There is something of the maternal instinct in the way you care for others. You are also very sensitive to people's emotional needs and wants, which enables you to respond to them at a very deep level of understanding. You will want to feel that you belong to any group that you associate with at this time. Fortunately you will also be able to make others feel that they belong with you. Your emotions are so much closer to the surface of your being that you can see them clearly.

Virgo Horoscope for November 2011

And this really long, rather lengthy monthly horoscope for November,
By Susan Miller
Your time is coming, dear Virgo. After having come through a very hard time from late 2007 to mid-2010, you are deserving of some special care from a loving universe. It's coming now, at long last. This could turn out to be a major turning point month for you, where all sorts of wonderful things finally start to happen. Things that have been pending will get settled soon, so have patience. There's a lot for me to tell you about, so let's get started!

Travel should be enchanting over the tender full moon of November 10 in the sensuous sign of Taurus, for it will light your house of adventure, travel, and learning. This full moon will make no definitive aspects to other planets (which is unusual), but it will send you lots of good wishes and happy experiences nonetheless, for you are an earth sign too, perfectly positioned to gather up its goodies.

If you have been in court, you should hear of a settlement at this time, and the results should please you. If you need a green card or visa, or hope to become a citizen of another country, all these matters will progress now, get settled, and likely make you smile now. Full moons bring closure, and because this one is so friendly to your Sun, you should be pleased with the results.

Good fortune Jupiter is in the same house as the full moon, and this is an indication that this area of your chart is a fortunate area for you now. You may be on the road this month, and if so, things should go exceedingly well. In fact, the accommodations should be quite luxurious! Jupiter will send a direct phone call to Pluto in your house of true love, the reason I feel so positive about how much you will enjoy this full moon, December 10, plus or minus four days.

If you do go out of town this month, it wouldn't likely be for work, but rather to have a romantic interlude, or to see family. (Family is indicated because Venus, the planet ruling your house of travel, will be orbiting through your house of family at the time.) If you have had no plans to travel now, maybe you should reconsider and plan a trip for sometime between December 25 (the day Jupiter will turn strong, direct motion) and June 12, 2012, when Jupiter will leave. (Once Jupiter leaves your ninth house of travel, he will not be back to this part of your chart for more than a decade! You are likely to find a great travel deal these days!)

If you were born on September 10, or within four days of this date, this full moon will bring you a double dip of happiness.

Virgo of any birthday should see benefits from what happens on another day, November 16, when Mars and Jupiter will bring you all kinds of happy news from ninth house activities. (Those are all the areas I have been discussing, including foreign and long-distance travel, citizenship matters, court settlements, university study, publishing / broadcasting, as some examples.) Put a big star on that date!

One day that is a standout that is coming in the first week of November is so special that I would like to stop here to highlight that day. It's November 3, when Uranus will signal your ruler, Mercury, making it a sensational day for brainstorming for ideas, or for hearing out-of-the-blue good news from an unexpected source. Venus will also receive good news from Uranus, so there are other benefits in the wind - sudden news about real estate, money, travel - and all of it is so encouraging! Do something important on November 3!

There is MORE headline news coming your way this month that involves Mars' impending move into Virgo on November 11. Normally, Mars stays in a sign for seven weeks, enough time for this action-oriented planet to help you score many impressive accomplishments in regard to the specific house Mars visits. This time, Mars will remain in Virgo for not seven weeks but nearly eight months! What an advantage! And with Mars moving through your first house, you will get carte blanche. You won't have to confine your attention and actions to only one area of the chart, and therefore only one area of life, but instead can choose ANY area you want to improve and Mars will automatically help you. Why? When Mars is in your first house, the house of your personality, you can choose precisely what you want to do. This house covers the parts of life that are dearly important to you, so personal to you that even I cannot see them from where I sit. Only you know how you want to direct Mars' energy, and it is your privilege to do so.

When you have Mars in your sign, as you will have from November 11 to July 3, 2011, Mars will give you energy, drive, and an attractive sense of self-confidence that will draw powerful people to you who will offer their help. Best of all, Mars will give you considerable control over the direction events take, and those events will tend to go in your favor. You are being given a wonderful advantage, dear Virgo. This is as unusual as it is extraordinary. All the other eleven zodiac signs will have to stand aside and wait until it's their turn to have Mars to themselves, but remember, they won't get eight months of Mars, only seven weeks of his time.

In love, Mars will make you magnetic and sexy too, and romantically, from now on, you may have to get used to being fussed over. Virgo is a modest sign, not usually given to enjoying this level of attention. Get used to it! It is time to stretch out your arms and grab the world with both your hands! You've had it so hard for so long, that it's about time the universe made a big correction in your favor!

There is another twist to all this that makes things even more favorable for you. Mars will tour early degrees of Virgo from now until April. Remarkably, Jupiter and Pluto will also be in early degrees of their earth signs, so together they can, and will, form a supremely benefic golden triangle of harmony, the best configuration anyone could ever hope to experience. Jupiter, planet of luck and happiness, is, as mentioned, now in your ninth house (the area I have been talking about so much, including travel, study, the courts, publishing, broadcasting, and citizenship matters), while Pluto the planet of transformation, is based in your fifth house of true love, romance, creativity, and pregnancy / children. Completing the triangle will be Mars, the action-planet that can make things happen NOW, in your first house of personal desires. Foreign people and overseas connections have to be excellent for you now, and so would any project involving publishing, broadcasting, or digital media. Your creativity will be on fire, and in love you'll be irresistible to your present partner or a new one. You see why this will be such an amazing period for you?

In love, there is MORE reason to be optimistic! Neptune, the ruler of your seventh house of marriage and commitment of all kinds, will move to direct speed on November 9, offering still another cheerful sign that you may be making a big decision involving the future of your closest relationship, whether that alliance is love or business-oriented. If you have hesitated about what you want to do next, suddenly, after November 9, you will know your own mind. Two days earlier, November 7, Mars in Leo will oppose Neptune in Aquarius, bringing important information up to the surface and providing clarity where previously there may have been mostly confusion. If you need to leave, you will know it, but if you are in love and want to be together forever, you will know that, too.

Mercury, your ruling planet is about to go retrograde on November 24 until December 13, and so you need to expect some delays. Mercury is the planet of communication and transportation, shipping and commerce / negotiation, so miscommunications may cause problems. Do not sign any papers until after December 13.

Everyone will be in the same boat, so just plan to go with the flow. This retrograde will affect you more than it might your friends of other signs because Mercury is your ruling planet. Also, this time Mercury will retrograde in Virgo, so you will notice the delays. Keep in mind that delays will benefit you, so don't try to outrun or outwit Mercury - just deal with postponements, re-dos, and backtracking as best you can. Actually, as you read this at the start of the month, you may be already experiencing delays. There is an upside to Mercury retrograde in that Mercury will put you in touch with people from your past, and you may want to reconnect and do something new together. You may also find treasures from the past - old valuable things that you assumed were lost forever sometimes show up under these phases.

If you are single and are not dating, you will enjoy having Venus in Capricorn, a fellow earth sign, from November 26 to December 19 - perfect timing for the holidays. If you can wait until mid-December to buy new clothes or to make an important change to your appearance, your timing would be ideal. Of course, you can buy small things to wear, just don't spend on a big designer outfit that costs four figures! Male or female, I would prefer you wait until Mercury is finished being retrograde on December 13 before you radically change your hair. By then you will still have six perfect days in which to improve your appearance, and with Venus staunchly guarding you, you should love the results.

If you can't wait, get busy in early November, and stay as far away from the retrograde as possible. If you were going to have plastic surgery, however, that is serious and irreversible, so I would urge you to put off having that elective procedure until sometime in the first two weeks of January. (I like January 4 and 5, and third runner up, January 6).

The big moment of the month will occur on the solar eclipse that will energize your fourth house of home and family. It will come as a new moon solar eclipse in Sagittarius, 3 degrees, on November 25. This is a friendly eclipse, so the changes are likely to be ones you had dreamed about and find exciting. Eclipses often mark major benchmark events in our lives, and this one would be no exception. You might move or soon begin a big renovation project.

Important actions involving home or other real estate often require large sums of money, and if that describes your situation, your chart suggests that the money you would need will be forthcoming. Uranus, the planet of surprise, will be beautifully oriented toward this friendly eclipse. If you need a mortgage, home improvement loan, down payment on a house, or any other funds, your chances are excellent that you will get the money, and it will show up in the most unlikely way, not in a way you expect. Or, after waiting nearly forever, suddenly you may be able to buy a house, or sell one, and the deal will have an unusual element in how it all comes together. (If your home is "under water," negotiate with banks this month - you are likely to get the answer you want by November 25, or shortly after, in the weeks that follow.)

With Venus, the planet of beauty, Mercury, your ruler, and the Sun and new moon all moving through your house of home, whatever comes up will become an instant priority for you. Venus will remain in this house almost all month, until November 25, so you will either adore your new space or make beautiful improvements to your present one. However, with Mercury retrograde, it is not a good time to buy expensive furniture or accoutrements. Wait until January if you can - stores may have sales then, too.

Holiday shopping may be a little problematic too with Mercury in retrograde from November 24 to December 13. You can buy small presents for under $200, but make sure you don't buy electronic gadgets, a computer, car, TV or kitchen or other appliances, for later you will regret your purchase. Mercury rules moving parts to machines, and when Mercury is retrograde, difficulties come up immediately or later. I would suggest you be sure to keep all receipts, just in case one of your recipients would need to make an exchange later. If you buy a gift card, photocopy the serial number and write the recipient's name on the photocopy so that you don't mix up the cards and recipients! You need to remember who received which cards! Being a Virgo is such a big plus, for you are always naturally organized.

I mentioned that your financial picture looked upbeat for home-related expenditures near the eclipse, but there are two other times in the month when other very good news should suddenly surface from banks, credit card companies, and other venues to make you smile about your burgeoning financial picture. It's also possible you may find a terrific real estate, furniture, or other bargain, or sell something of value that gets you a chunk of money.

Watch first November 3 when all news will be good news - decisions you make then should translate into profits later.

The same is true of November 22-23, when the Sun and Uranus cooperate, allowing you to see an infusion of cash you never expected to land in your lap.

The money you get on November 3, 22-23, or later, as a result of the eclipse, November 25, seems to be real estate or home oriented. Or, it may be that you receive a check from one of your parents, perhaps for a down payment on a new house, or for repairs you need to make on your present home.

One last thought: the eclipse could give you outstanding help from a family member, such as your mother or father. You may be given a check to help with a purchase you need to make, or your mom may give you a handsome piece of furniture that you've always loved that she wants you to have. Or it may be that your parents are moving to a new city that has great weather. You will be anxious to visit them there, and of course, they'll have a guest room for you! See what happens, dear Virgo!

Concerning your career: sit tight. A second eclipse is due on December 10, and it will bring important professional shifts and developments. It's a full moon lunar eclipse, so things are about to crystallize. Don't make any key moves or decisions just yet, for you will need to see what comes up before you can see the road ahead. If you need freelance work because you are not currently employed, you could easily hit on something on November 22 or 23, when Uranus and the Sun work together to bring you a surprise opportunity.

The month ends on a gorgeous note. Venus will move into Capricorn on November 26 and signal Jupiter instantly. The whole weekend of November 26-27 should be made in heaven for love and fun. Pluto will send blessings, and so will Mars - wow, dear Virgo, by all means, be sure to step out!


As November opens, travel is in the air! If you can get away, it would be good time to do so. Flying to a new destination will nourish your soul and refresh your perspective. If you have business to conduct, you can reach a pact anytime during the first ten days and expect to see great results. You are likely to flee town during the first week, and return within four days of the full moon November 10.

This particular trip seems special for it will have the power to offer life-altering insights. You seem to be thinking very big, and the profit potential of those ideas is strong. You will most likely travel to conduct business, view property, or visit family. In all cases, you will find your accommodations beautiful, even luxurious, and those you are visiting at your destination will greet you warmly.

The eclipse of November 25 will bring family matters or a domestic matter into focus, and will also likely bring you a chance to settle things soon. Be careful not to make any firm commitments while Mercury is retrograde, however, from November 24-December 13. Mercury rules your sign, making this planet doubly important to you. Any deal you sign during those weeks would need to be renegotiated or corrected later, or may even fall through completely. Finish important business by November 17.

Nevertheless, the eclipse of November 25 will bring news and interesting discussions that you may find exciting. Hold yourself back from saying too much until mid-December. You have time - you need not rush. If one opportunity disappears, another better one will come to take its place, and may actually be more suitable for you in the long run. The money or loans you may need to actualize your plans will appear at some point, possibly near November 22.

Eclipses come in pairs, so the next one, December 10, will emphasize your career. Don't decide anything until that full moon lunar eclipse has spoken. Just sit back, open the window, and see what flies in at that time. Eclipses always bring events from the outside world in to your world, over which you have no control. They shake us out of our complacency and help us see situations with fresh eyes. Sometimes they bring rare opportunity, other times, challenge, but either way, we often benefit from what occurs.

When energy planet Mars moves into Virgo from November 11 to July 3, you will come into your own. You will begin to garner support you never expected from higher ups and others who will finally see you as the star you are and have been all along. During this rare and special period, you will be thrust into a leadership position, and others will look to you for direction. You will be glad to suggest various courses of action when asked to do so, and may be amazed at how frequently your ideas are approved and acted upon by those in charge. Your mounting victories will fuel your imagination and give you the courage to offer more daring proposals, proving the old adage that nothing succeeds like success. This will be a period of high-energy and opportunities that have much promise. Take the reins - you will make quick progress. This period will last through half of 2012, until July 3, lucky you!

In romance, the last week, from November 25-30, will be a tender time of love and warmth, when Mars in Virgo will cooperate with good fortune Jupiter in Taurus and Venus and Pluto in Capricorn. Together these planets will create a grand triangle of gold, depicting rare harmony. If you are single, it seems someone has noticed you, and now you will know it for sure. At month's end, modest Virgo, even you will notice that you have become irresistible and unstoppable.

Dates to Note for Virgo

Most romantic dates: November 5, 9, 10 (full moon, gold star), 14-15, 26, and 27 (gold star).
Your love life will go into overdrive when Venus enters highly compatible Capricorn on November 26 to stay through December 19. Refresh your look with small things during this phase, but for plastic surgery or a radical hairstyle change, schedule that from December 13-19.
Mars in Virgo from November 11-July 3 puts you in the role of leader. It will be a very exciting, potent time. Mars will also make you more attractive and raise your profile - there will be a lot of fuss about you!
Watch in particular the weekend of November 26-27 for an especially romantic time.
Neptune will go direct November 11 until June 4, 2012 and improve your closest relationship in love or business (or both).
Travel would be excellent on November 16.
Financial news may be surprisingly exciting and upbeat: November 10-11, and very much so on November 22-23.
Mercury will be retrograde: November 24-December 13. Sign no contracts, and buy no expensive items.
November 16 will also be excellent day for real estate, contracting, decorating, and other home matters. The eclipse of November 25 will be even more important (see below).
The eclipse of November 25 could bring some exciting news about your home or other real estate, or help you with a matter involving a parent. 


KD: alright i read the first line of the monthly on that site and am welling up with tears. the last 4 years have been really, extraordinarily difficult. ive been really alone, and trying to figure everything out on my own while everything and anything would backfire and go kersplat.
DM: Yes, it's been hard for Virgos, but the past is past. right now, please remember how strong you've become and how you still managed to hold up despite all the cosmic shit. 
Now, after four years of hiding your head from the hail, the hard part may be opening your eyes and seeing the sun shine because you may be focused on expecting the worst. I never felt more alive than when I was unemployed for five months back in 2008. I used the time to start building my personal brand of oddness.
The payoff came when HuffPost came a calling because I was doing something no one else could do. At least not like me. Yes, I took a crappy PR job but I kept my eye on the prize. C'mon kid, it's your time. Get out there and show 'em how it's done.
KD: i mean, do you mean writing or jobs in general? because really, what am i showing them i'm doing? i know i'm eclectic and good at many different things.
DM: Do something that shows who you are.

Well, so far I thank the Universe for David Moye, and Jesse Alson.
