Horoscope Libra - 9/23 – 10/22

Weekly Overview (Week starting on October 18)

As much as the world at large wants you to focus on material wealth, the start of the week is a great time to focus on anything not nearly as concrete. The color of the sky, the sound of birds calling, a random -- and rare -- splash of sun. It’s a beautiful thing! Then, turn your attention from the natural world to humanity and focus on people in the middle of the week. Everything else will take care of itself. Friday and Saturday, indulgence is in the stars, but watch out. You run the risk of going overboard, and regretting it on Sunday.

Week’s Dadisms BEST “I never talked to my old man like that!” = “I can’t think of a snappy comeback right now, so I’m going to play the guilt card. After all, it works for Mom.” “Where were you raised, in a barn? It’s freezing in here.” = Dad’s attempt at metaphor is usually lost on the child who absentmindedly leaves the door open on a cold day. The more effective alternative might be: “Close the darn door!”

Thinking LOUD Out In Gratitude of Weeds

My husband and I aren’t lawn people — and not because we don’t appreciate a beautiful lawn. We do. We just can’t have one. With two dogs and a well, pesticides and herbicides are out, and we’ve long since given up on the theory that good grass crowds out weeds, because it doesn’t. We top seed the bare areas every year, we lime and fertilize appropriately, but by mid-July, our yard boasts exactly 36 blades of magnificent Kentucky Blue mixed with crab grass, clover, wild violets, and some kind of creeping thing that fills in where the rest leave off. The thing is, it’s green. Very green. A deep, rich green unaffected by days without rain and withering hot sun. In fact, while all the beautiful lawns are losing their battle with the elements, our field of weeds thrives, thick and lush. It’s a thing to behold, really — as long as we squint, so squint, we do, from mid-July on. And you know what else? The money we save is green, too. I think we’re onto something.

Week’s Anecdotes BEST

I know you are, but what am I?

As a female shopper exited a New York convenience store, a man grabbed her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immediately and the woman was able to give them a detailed description of the snatcher. Within minutes, police had apprehended the perpetrator. They put him in their cruiser and drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of the car and told to stand there for a positive ID. To which he replied, “Yes Officer... that’s her. That’s the lady I stole the purse from.”
