First, I’ve decided that in doing this little astrological experiment, I’ll use only one resource: My Horoscope. It’s an online horoscope which makes it quick and convenient for me. I visited the site a few minutes ago, and here’s my astrological guidance for today:
Don’t be surprised if emotions flare up between you and someone close on a professional or social level, Sagittarius. The issue may be difficult to resolve now. People feel rather sensitive. If they hear something they don’t like, especially an opinion that may seem too critical, they’re likely to shut down. You might want to consider saving anything of a sensitive nature for tomorrow.
On first reading…well, let’s just say, I’m not too worried about having any emotional flare-ups with anyone right now. I’ll be spending my morning here in my little writing room, all alone. Sure, I’ll have contact with the outside world through the wonders of the internet, but I don’t think I’m going to get overly emotional about anything that happens via email, Facebook, or other social media.
Yes, there are certain professional issues that disturb me, but I have more important things to do than get upset over things I can’t control. The writing industry has evolved and changed over the years. Some of the changes are good. Some of the changes, maybe not so good, but that’s how life works, you know. It’s a trade-off. You take the bad along with the good, appreciate the opportunities and advantages you get, and make the best of the disadvantages and limitations that are part of the deal. Or, as the saying goes, “You win some; you lose some.”
As for being overly sensitive, here’s my take on that. The first thing anyone who wants to be a writer needs to do is develop a thick skin. If a few words are going to wound you, you’d better find a different profession.
But, I’ll be on my best behavior. I won’t criticize, condemn, nor complain. Norman Vincent Peale would be so proud of me for remembering.
Update: I’m going to call this one a HIT. Despite my good intentions, I found myself online, ranting and raving about one of those issues I touched upon, above. I was mean. I was snarky. I told it like it was, by golly! And after I posted it to one of my blogs, I realized how many feelings I could hurt — and how many enemies I could make. Maybe expressing my true feelings wasn’t really such a good idea, I decided. When I thought back to this astrological guidance and the need to avoid anything of a sensitive nature, I quickly “unpublished” the post. Maybe I’ll put it up another time. Probably not. I vented. I felt better. So maybe it will be best to just let it go.
