Multiple Cosmic Messaging
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Respect lasts longer than attention. Those who make a grab for the spotlight without delivering something of real value soon lose their audience and their credibility with you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Anyone exerting pressure on you to make the best choice (most likely you're the guilty party here) simply doesn't realize that there is no best choice. Many are good. All will lead to the future.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It's said that you can never be overeducated, and yet you wonder if you'd be better off not knowing some things. What's there to do is to learn even more about it. Because the wider picture will be somehow more palatable.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 17). Love will have a daily impact on your life. You'll make sacrifices for your people and your interests will get served, too. Being redirected will bring wonderful results in the spring, so respect obstacles and take detours. There's a payout in May. What you spend to get business going will come back to you. Virgo and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 8, 44, 28 and 11.
HOW TO WRITE A LOVE LETTER IN 12 STEPS, PART FIVE. See the archives for parts one through four.
Step 10: The P.S. The postscript is an opportunity -- often it's the very best part of the whole letter.
P.S. No pressure.
Example: Fluffy the cat wants to know when you're coming back with more of that sweet catnip-stuffed-mouse action.
Example: Rhode Island. Really?
Step 11: Edit. Yes, the essence of good writing is rewriting. If you have the time, you might want to wait a day or two before you do your edits, because you'll see it differently after 24 hours.
Step 12: The presentation. Handwritten is the best. Something printed is the next best. Cool paper is a plus. Do yourself a favor: Don't put your heart into something and then send it digitally. Love letters aren't for emailing. They aren't for texting. Love letters are a gift from the heart, worthy of a physical embodiment. Give 'em something to hold and keep. And blackmail you with later.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Before the Kardashian empire, the original celebutante, Paris Hilton, ruled the realm of those famous for being famous. Hilton has an aptitude for entertaining befitting her moon in Leo, the sign of the spotlight. Her natal Mercury and Venus in Aquarius highlight philanthropy. She's generously supported dozens of causes including the fight against breast cancer and various animal charities.
