Uber scopes

Pisces (2/19 – 3/20):  I'm not much of a traveller -- I'm okay with the being somewhere else part, but the airport part, not so much.  Every time I travel, the planes are delayed by serious amounts, like, 3 or 4 hours at least, and sometimes days. No one else I know has such trouble.  Example: I got snowed in overnight in Atlanta on my way to Nicaragua.  Who gets snowed in in Georgia?  And so on.  It took us about 12 hours to get home from SF the other day, and it's almost as quick to walk.  But the main reluctance I have is that I really like this planet, and lifting off terrifies me.  I spend my time in the aiplane switching wildly between sheer boredom and fearing that I'm going to die.  Fight or flight!  No, fall asleep.  Fight or flight!  Fall asleep!  As my daughter says, the plane makes me more hamsterish than normal.  Pisces, don't let this crazy holiday season make you even the tiniest bit hamsterish.  Use your very mature nervous system for good.

Pisces (2/19 – 3/20):  Usually I'm an early to bed, early to rise person, but I've made new rules, one of which is that if it's dark out, it's okay to be in bed.  As you know, it's dark from about 4:30 pm to 8:30 am around here, which means I miss a lot of stuff, but I am keeping up on the 68 podcasts I subscribe to.  I'd like to recommend sleeping through the dark times, Pisces.  A little dormancy never hurt anyone, and in the case of bulbs it's essential.  It's not time to bloom just yet.
Aries (3/21 - 4/19):  As you know if you've ever e-mailed with me, one of two things is true:  I either have a cousin in Uzbekistan who needs a new kidney, or I've been hacked.  You decide.  The worst part of all of that is that my entire inbox was wiped out.  I'm not a hoarder of things, but I do hang on to the e-mail.  It's better than a diary -- you can oflook back and see what was going on a year ago, for example.  And oh, how I love words.  They a…

Pisces and Apple Pie (sans the apple pie)

Pisces (2/19 – 3/20): Besides the other crushingly sad on-going news about justice for people of color, the other thing going on is that big companies (FB, Apple, others) are offering the egg-freezing benefit, which means they'll cover the cost for a woman to put her eggs in a freezer for later use, not unlike corn dogs or leftover soup.  

So, rather than letting the world be how it is, where women, mostly in their 20's and 30's, have babies (and adore them, by the way), we're asking women to mold their reproductive timeline to fit with the corporate world.  Because women should LEAN IN and focus on their careers in their thirties, and not get distracted by the love of children!  Why perpetuate the species when you could get STOCK OPTIONS? Women should set their eggs aside and wait for a better time.  (No one has ever addressed the question as to when it's a good time to completely surrender yourself to another helpless needy being who communicates primarily through…
