Rarely do I find Rob Brezsny‘s horoscopes at Free Will Astrology quite as relevant for me as they often are for some of my friends. However, this week’s really hit home, so much so that it sounds like a message directly from my gods and spirits, something I really needed to hear (and that They probably have been trying to tell me directly; isn’t it funny how we’re often blocked when it comes to such things?) as I’m in the process of remodeling my Etsy store and working on new product lines.
Virgo Horoscope for week of January 13, 2011
I regard 2011 as an excellent time for you to cultivate your unique talents, some of which may still be latent or undiscovered. With that in mind, consider these thoughts. Ernest Hemingway said a person had to have “the guts of a burglar” to develop his or her talent. Neurologist and author Dr. Alice W. Flaherty believes that the drive to use one’s talent is even more important than the amount of raw talent one has. And here’s novelist Erica Jong: “Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow that ‘talent’ to the dark place where it leads.” P.S. If you do venture into those dark places, you’ll eventually uncover ten suns’ worth of illumination.
Score one for Brezsny, and onward I go!
