Creative change

With change comes opportunity as well as sacrifice. The old has to make way for the new. The old is certain for we know all the parameters, while the new is uncertain. The Stoics does not seem to focus much on life changes but focused more on consistency in terms of their expression of virtue. One should always seek out to push forward the expression of virtue through one’s own actions. With this constancy in mind one bolsters your defences against the ever changing environment.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
