Blinders Off

The February issue of Town & Country has a full page for my 2009 horoscope. Got me thinking.

Okay, so it says that I'm naturally cautious - but it warns I'll be even more so in 09. Fret over details? Who me? Reticent and slow to act ... maaaaybeeeee.

Now it begins to get interesting - brilliant opportunities - I like the sound of that. My abilities will attract a lot of notice (feel free to comment :0)

What really caught my attention though was the closing paragraph;

Remember, too, that your instincts, which are self-protective, don't always steer you true. And if the planets have one special message to impart to you in 2009, it is to tear off those blinders, look around and boldly reach out for what you want.

Good advice whether or not I give any weight to horoscopes. Blinders off, reaching ....

Blinders off is good, but when it comes to instincts we should really trust them. At least in my life everytime I had a weird feeling about something it turned out to be true - sooner or later, and I always thought I should have trusted my instincts and acted accordingly earlier...

Good point Eija -it's like I have two layers of immediate responses. The first - fearful and false. The second (and deeper) is the true one. I need to wait for the fear to come out, then get behind it.
