Happy Father’s Day


This time of the year is never an easy stretch for me. Just over a month ago would have been my father’s birthday, in 4 days it’ll mark the 18th anniversary of his death, and tomorrow is Father’s Day. Before you stop reading hoping to avoid sadness, this won’t all be bad. In my 23 very short years on this earth, I have learned to handle many things. I have learned how to lose with grace, win humbly, handle rejection, and how to develop deeply rooted friendships. One of the things I have yet to grasp fully is how to handle loss.

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.
