"7 days. An eternity of not that long. 7 days ago, there was an “us” of sorts. 7 days ago, we shared a bed, some words, a lot of silence. 7 days later, it’s you and I. 7 days later, we’ve shared fewer words, and even more silence.
7 days ago, I was willing to make an attempt. 7 days later, I have nothing left to say.
I wish I could say I was surprised…but that is never the case."
"My advice to you is this: put some armor around that gooey little heart of yours."

"I’m so in love with my best friend. The fullness of it almost breaks my heart.
I should know better."
2013 has just over a month remaining to get interesting. It’s been an adventure, I’ll give you that, but nothing stands out as a shining best moment. Come on, 2013, I know you must have something hidden up your sleeve!
"I keep waiting for it to hurt. I keep waiting for the anger to blossom. I keep waiting for the disappointment in myself for allowing you to waste so much of my time.
It hasn’t yet manifested.
I wonder when the other shoe will drop, when the armor plating will turn solid, when I will finally freeze you out.
I should have known better than to believe in a mere mortal when I have experienced Gods and monsters."
"What’s your favourite sin, Scorpio? I’m talking about the mischievous vice or rebel tendency or excessive behaviour that has taught you a lot. It may be the case that now and then this transgressive departure from normalcy has had redeeming value and has even generated some interesting fun. Perhaps it puts you in touch with a magic that generates important changes, even if it also exacts a toll on you. Whatever your “favourite sin” is, I’m guessing that you need to develop a more conscious and mature relationship with it. The time has come for it to evolve."
— Scorpio scope… is my horoscope telling me that it is time to grow up?!!?! 1) no, and 2) weirdly, I’ve been reflecting lately on what it means to have changed, and in a way, perhaps I have been doing some growing.
"From an astrological perspective, now would be a good time to go on a meditation retreat for a few days or make a pilgrimage to your ancestral homeland. You would generate just the right shifts in your brain chemistry by doing something like that. Other recommended adventures: reviewing the story of your entire life from your first memory to the present moment; writing a brief letter to the five people you have loved best, telling them why you’ve loved them; spending a day outside of time, when you don’t consult a clock or use electronic media for the duration."

"I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life," said Scorpio painter Georgia O’Keeffe, "and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do." I think her declaration is excellent medicine for you. In 2013, you will have great potential for upgrading your relationship with your fears — not necessarily suppressing them or smashing them, but rather using them more consistently as a springboard, capitalizing on the emotions they unleash, and riding the power they motivate you to summon."
