Dear Friend and Reader:
A FEW months ago, I promised you that I would be taking a month off while the Sun is in Virgo. That is obviously not happening quite that way, as the Sun is now at the Virgo midpoint, but I am going to take two weeks off from horoscopes and essays.
To those who may wonder why, I need to give my creative mind a rest, and get some of my affairs settled on the Stateside of the Atlantic Ocean for the first time in a while.
I tend to work about seven days a week wherever I am traveling -- writing, editing, seeing clients and managing the business with Chelsea. Yesterday I noticed that I was feeling run out to the end of my reel -- and that was a sign that it was time to take a short break and give the well some time to replenish.
For the next few editions, I leave you in the competent hands of Judith Gayle, Kirsti Melto and other writers who join us. We are not up to stand-in horoscopes yet -- but Priya is doing her part to learn the craft.
I will be back when the Sun is in early Libra, at the mighty, mighty Equinox.
Until then, safe travels, and remember: the stars in their courses may guide us, it is we who take the steps and make the choices.
I sincerely thank you for your cooperation with taking the space to take care of myself.
Yours & truly,
