Bring on the divination

As regular readers know, I'm a fan of my horoscope. I don't let the "stars" guide me, but I do like to use the horoscope as a jumping off point for thinking about my life.
Same for the daily "lover's tarot" email I get in my inbox each morning.

Today, it really mirrored what has been going on with me lately, so I thought I'd share:

The Ten of Chalices card suggests that you should celebrate the completion of a journey, transformation or commitment. It's time to back up the ones you love while giving them roots and wings. You can expect the collective sensation of having finally made it as one big happy family. Perhaps the most important lesson to be gleaned from this sense of fulfillment is to simply enjoy being in the moment.

Honor and recognize your inner child through spontaneous and passionate expressions. You know that home, happiness and family are where the heart is. This sense of pride and joy may come from a focus on common values, a romantic desire sated or a dream achieved. Either way, you have an opportunity to share the love, express gratitude, expand your relationship and appreciate the stormy road that might have led to this renewal and wholeness.

Moving in with the boyfriend has been a long and sometimes arduous process, but I feel the beginnings of settling in and being a good family unit (that last part is really difficult for me, as my family of origin was good at picking fights and being unhappy with one another. I want to avoid that).

Right now I'm drinking my coffee and watching Twin Peaks (halfway through the first season). I've got some chicken poaching in wine and spices, and I'm making a chicken salad later on today with said bird.

Later today the "cable man" is expected to come and hook up our super high speed internet, which means I can cancel my DSL (although, honestly, I'm not sure I want to, with the outages Charter has been having 'round these parts as of late).

Back to coffee and a few more blissful, child-free minutes of morning solitude.
