Time Travel & Tea

Sagittarius Horoscopes
(Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Next Week
For the Week of Jul 20th, 2009 -- You love your freedom more than most, but could find yourself trying to manage everyone else this weekend instead of having a good time. Yes, you're a great friend or partner for maintaining sanity and protecting those you love. But if you're looking to play without worries, it's wise to avoid crowds or groups and seek out a quiet place with one easygoing individual.

Hmm. The Pow Wow next weekend should be interesting if that's the case. Who knows what the dynamic will be? Still, this is advice I will seriously consider. I will behave :) It's so worth it!

General Weekly Love Horoscope Influences
The week gets off to a somber and slippery start, which is not the ideal foundation for relationship bliss. The weekend, unfortunately, is hardly much better. While new adventures are possible, try to stay calm when circumstances change unexpectedly. Normalcy will return...eventually.

Hah! Normalcy. What's that anyway? I work with radioactive material, stress hearts both at work and home, and write about vampires. That is my normal. I'm quite comfortable with it.

Each of us has their own definition of normalcy, I'm sure. The important thing is that it's the right fit for you. If others choose to judge you that is their prerogative, as the song goes. It's such a waste of time and energy, though. Each day is so precious. The way you spend your time is sometimes defined by the reality of earning a living, caring for others or circumstances 'out of your control.' That control thing can be a sticky wicket. I've found control to be an illusion for the most part. We have far more control over our lives than most of us choose to admit. If we did admit that fact we would then need to take responsibility for controlling our life, our destiny.

In my second book I deal with this in a roundabout way. The characters, mortal and not mortal, have an opportunity to go back in time and possibly change the outcome of a pivotal event in their life. Would you or wouldn't you change something in your past? I drag string theory and brane theory into play, so I give my characters some leeway. Would you choose to keep your life on track or would you choose another path at an earlier crossroad? I think about these things from time to time.

At this point in my life, knowing what I know and having done what I've done, I would not change a thing in my past. The good, the bad and the ugly have combined to make my life what it is now. I'm liking where I am. Right now I'm feeling restless, kind of unsettled. Part of my journey is complete. A new road is most appealing. This is not to say what I have isn't enough. I am blessed beyond measure with my family and friends. You just never stop growing in different ways. The spirit reaches out for the source of it's energy. It is a wonderful feeling to know there is not enough time for everything you could do in one lifetime. That gives impetus to learn and experience as much as possible while you're able. My characters get to time travel or live for hundreds or thousands of years. I get a kick out of that. Sometimes, it's not all it's cracked up to be. Me, I'll keep on keepin' on as long as I can. I heard a famous romance novelist used to lie on her chaise and dictate her very successful novels while sipping tea and eating bon bons. Nah! Not really my style, but when the time comes to retire my walking boots I may consider it. Maybe sipping Long Island Iced Tea though.
