Resolutions, horoscopes and tomato bushes

...And so the 2007 will be gone in only 6 hours. Rest in peace.
I finally feel awake after a sleepy year, I'm ready and battle trained. Still a little bit scared and anxious I admit, but I'll be brave. Yes, this is my first resolution for the new year. I obviously made a mental list of resolutions (sorry for the ordinary girl I am...I can't help it, I make lists of everything, it's out of my control!) and "to be brave" could be applied to any point of that list. I would be braver than usual and enjoy life and brave enough to face certain serious things of course, but I would be also brave enough to wear the American Apparel black Lamé Leggings, more high heeled shoes and hot lipstick...

I feel this can be a good year for me even if I don't know exactly why but at least I can count on the horoscope. According to it infact - I'd better to say "according to them" as I read/listened to hundreds of horoscopes in the last weeks - this should be a great year for Virgo. I'll can even meet and marry my true neverending love (?!?).
I should say I'm not an horoscopes addicted at all, I don't even buy Astra (should I, Margherita ;-)?) but I have my astrologers guru, Marco Pesatori and Rob Brezsny and I heart their beautiful, fun, sparkling, clever astrological (and beyond) forecasts.
Just to give you an idea of what I'm talking about, this is what Rob Brezsny wrote this week for Virgo:

"The desert-dwelling creosote bush can survive for centuries on little water. In the Mohave Desert there is a ring of creosote, named "King Clone," whose age has been carbon-dated at 11,700 years. The hardiness of this low-maintenance wonder reminds me of you, Virgo. You sometimes entertain the fantasy that the less you need, the stronger you'll be. The downside of this attitude is that you may unwittingly make it hard for people to give you their gifts. The upside is that you've learned many secrets about how to nurture and take care of yourself. But in 2008, I foresee you making a shift away from the creosote bush metaphor. You're more likely to resemble a tomato bush that gets watered regularly."

May this 2008 be bright and wonderful for everyone :-)
