The Planet's Prediction

"...You may be changing your living arrangements because of a change that's brewing in your career. The full moon lunar eclipse may seal things on February 9, plus or minus one week. It appears one job will end and a new one will begin. I could be wrong, but it looks like you'll be leaving one career situation for another. These two separate situations may dovetail at the same time, but if they don't, don't worry - your chart shows plenty of evidence you are going up, up, up the ladder of success in life...." Astrologyzone

I've been riding my part-time job with medical benefits pony in the direction she's been going for awhile now. I've enjoyed riding this particularly filly, even though the trail was well-worn and often boring, because there was always plenty of out-of-saddle time to write. Recently, I noticed my filly had been acting a little spooked. I guess I shouldn't have been so surprised today when she started bucking me really hard. I ended up cartwheeling out of her saddle and landing right onto my unemployed ass. So, it appears this cowgirl needs to find a new pony and a new part-time direction.

Giddyap!

Ouch. Falling off always hurts.

Best of luck Neve - hope you find the pony of your dreams soon. And in the meantime there's always the writing...

Oh Neve - I'm so sorry! This has happened to several friends lately - it's just really a rough time for a lot of folks.

Neve Black said...

Janine,Jeremy and Marina,
Thank you all so much for your comments and good wishes. I appreciate the support.

Yes, this gives me more time for my real passion, which is writing.

It's funny, because I know I should probably be upset about this recent fall, because I do have silly things to pay each month, like a mortgage, heat, and electricity, but I'll find another job. How can I go wrong with this month's horoscope prediction?

Hi Neve,

I am sending big happy bouncy horse love beams your way! I'm sure you'll find an even better ride very soon. You have such a bright spirit and great attitude!

Kirsten,
Thank you for those thoughts. Yes, I'm a big believer when one door closes, another, bigger, brighter, higher paying door opens. :-)

MilesB said...

Oh Neve, I'm so sorry to hear that. That sucks. But, like you said, when one door closes, another one opens.

Here's to your high-paying horse, Neve!

Neve Black said...

Thanks Miles. I was going to call you about my recent throw from my horse- teaching English in Barcelona sounds sooo good to me right about now. :-)

Neve Black said...

Hi EllaR,
Thank you, sweetie. I'm whinnying to you. It seems appropriate not only because of my horse/job analogy, but also after reading your recent story. :-)

Neve, so sorry to hear about this. Never having been a horse person I don't have any good equine metaphors, but here's hoping things work out for the best.

Neve Black said...

Hi Robin,
Thank you for your support. I appreciate your kindness. :-)

Stinging butts aren't fun (I know from many horseback riding falls), but I trust in the stars. This is the beginning of better things.

And the writing is the important thing!

Hugs,

Donna

DGS,
Thank you.

We all know that a little bruising of one's ass can be painful, but also pleasurable at the same time, right? :-)
