horoscopes & beaded collars

I am not a horoscope person. I have a lot of girlfriends who are very into astrology, and while it does hold some fascination for me, I've always taken it with a grain of salt. However, today I found myself reading this epic horoscope for the month of November and it was filled with strange coincidences and interesting predictions for my sign (I'm a Pisces). It gave me chills in the best possible way, not because I necessarily believed everything it said, but because it echoed the way I've been feeling lately (which is, in a word, inspired). My mind has been a swarm of ideas lately and reading this long thing felt strangely personal. So the planets are aligning and I'm having a burst of creativity at exactly the right moment? Maybe so! Or maybe it's a bit of silly coincidence and I was just happy to read something encouraging. Either way, I'm secretly hoping the rest of this month will indeed be "breathtakingly special and once-in-a-lifetime rare," just like the horoscope said.

The beading on the collar is so sweet. I went over to the horoscope site to read mine, but when you said epic you weren't kidding! I just couldn't get around to reading all of it hahaha ^,^

Anaïs said...

Omg it's actuallly ridiculous how accurate that horoscope is for me ...
The collar is really beautiful!

Penny Dreadful said...

Hehe, I'm a total skeptic, no horoscopes for me. I have to be diplomatic about it though because I have a friend who is training to be an astrologer!

Ceeee-uute little collar. Teensy collars good, teensy BEADED collars even better x

wow, thats a really great horoscope. im not to bit into them either (as in i dont know everything there si to know about it) but i do know my sign, Sagittarius, fit me really well. theres this book called the book of birthdays or something, and has all this info for each individual birthday and it was crazy how much mine described me. you should look into it, they are almost always dead on.
