Rob Brezney on Fish Girls

here's my weekly horoscope from my favorite astrologist, Rob Brezney. Go here, for a lot of starry fun!

Musician Sarah McLachlan told the crowd at one of her concerts: "I feel great about singing really depressing songs." In the U2 song "A Man and a Woman," Bono sings, "The only pain is to feel nothing at all." They are your role models in the coming week, Pisces. I hope they inspire you to feel grateful for your capacity to experience such intense emotions. You're lucky to be so sensitive! You're blessed to have so much vital force! So please celebrate your talent for feeling melancholy and overwhelmed. Congratulate yourself for being such a connoisseur of guilt, confusion, and anxiety. You're more alive than other people. You've got a soul as big and wild and deep as the Amazon River.

(He always makes me sound so complicated and lovely. A stretch...but I like it.)

Thank you for commenting on my blog.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who explores the profiles of commenters.

On topic, I have always been a melancholic sort. I can't say that I like it, but when I consider attempting to get some kind of treatment, I can't help but think that this temperament is a part of me-to remove it, chemically or otherwise, is to change what is an essential part of myself.

It hurts, but it makes me whole, makes me sensitive, makes me FEEL.

Hell of a price to pay, though.

ah, ditto, Michael. I will keep visiting...your site is clever and fun. I never have time to get around and check things out as much as I would like to. I do think that we are who we are...and mostly, I'm okay with that, melancholy and all. It does help me to experience joy, and that balance is amazing.
