My Gmail is basically down, so if you've sent me an email and I haven't responded in a basically decent amount of time, this is why. I guess I need to report this to Google but blech, the last thing I want to do is troubleshoot this problem via FAQs or web forms. Boo.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Why fight for rights that are already yours, Virgo? Why sacrifice yourself for the benefit of people who wouldn't fully appreciate your gifts? And why are you even thinking about dividing when you should be multiplying? Any of these acts would be a crime against yourself. So listen up: You just have to hold out a little longer. If you can avoid running up a big karmic debt in the next few days, if you can refrain from hurting yourself in a misguided attempt to fix situations that can't be fixed, you'll be home free. Soon the whole cast of monsters, demons, and goons will pack up their inane torture devices and go trundling back to the hells where they came from.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): ... It's a favorable time to forge a new spiritSo now I am left with the following question: which do I abhor more: today's thinkers or today's stinkers?
of cooperation between the two parts of your psyche -- let's call them
the rational and the transcendent -- which so many of today's thinkers
have told you cannot possibly co-exist. Brezny

THE WAY IT ISSometimes you read things and you think, yes, exactly that is me. Sometimes you read things and it reminds you that other people have their shit, too. And no matter how much you wish it went differently, it won't. It can't. They can't. They've got their thread, see? And they can't let go.
There's a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn't change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can't get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time's unfolding.
You don't ever let go of the thread.
