This New Astrology is something you may or may not accept, and I tend to view all that with a healthy dose of suspicion, but at the same time, I have to admit that this book describes me very well. I am a Scorpio/Monkey, and that's a very interesting combination. You would see what I mean if you had this book.
There's a 14-minute video about the Scorpio/Monkey on YouTube, but the man narrating it is an Englishman with a mouthful of marbles, and the audio isn't well recorded, and is difficult to listen to. If he was going to do this, he should have done it well or not at all. And that's probably my Scorpio/Monkey talking. We are the best and worst of both Scorpios and Monkeys, and we're dynamite. Ask anybody.
As if that were not enough, I'm also a manic-depressive, now too old for those magnificent 'highs' and those suicidal 'lows', but still having problems, because my system doesn't work like yours does, or at least I hope not, for your sake. So "problems" - yes, I have some. Would I trade mine for yours? No, of course not. I'm familiar with mine, and it took me a lot of years to be able to say that. Mastering those problems is something else, but I am familiar with them.
And the friend I've probably lost? Let's first have a look at this. I'm not saying that Christine is a "Tiger Mom", and I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but "if the shoe fits...." Right now, Christine is very angry with me, and she should be, because I impulsively acted in a situation in which she did not need or want any help. And she is too polite to tell me that I made a complete ass of myself doing something with her calendar when I had no right to interfere. She has not yet forgiven me, nor should she. She should let me stew in my own stupidity for a while yet, because this is a lesson I should never forget. Let others mind their own business, and do the same myself. It should be tattoo'd on my forehead, so I could read it each time I look in the mirror.
And Christine, if you're still reading my stuff, I beg you - please forgive me! I promise: this will absolutely never happen again.
