When I was in high school, I banked on horoscopes to make my very average high school existence a little less average. I probably hoped each year that there would be something like "and this year won't suck" and nothing else. But that never happens because every year does suck, at one point or another no matter what. This year, courtisy of Astrology.com, my Cancer predictions for 2009 go like this:

As we enter the Golden Age of Aquarius, you are ready to receive all the blessings that are there for you, especially in the areas of communications and relationships.

Being understood and getting the responses you desire helps you believe in your ability to succeed and reach your highest potential. Your focus is excellent, and you know what you want. Use this to your advantage when working with others, but don't demand that they see your ideas as visionary -- even if you do. As ideas start flowing freely to you, make sure you articulate your insights clearly.

This year, you will be strongly motivated by transformation, especially in romantic unions. When balanced in your heart and mind, you easily express your emotions and are quick to support others. It is important for you to have a partner who is willing to explore different ways of doing things. You will experience many changes as you learn new ways of expressing yourself.

As you make this shift, avoid putting restrictions on yourself and stopping the flow. You are learning to behave in a new positive way, not worrying about the outcome. This will curb your need to control situations and enable you to take your relationships -- work and personal -- to a higher level of consciousness.

Even if I still believed in horrorscopes, this would mean absolutely nothing. Welcome to another year of vagueness.

(Actually, It's not okay at all.) In my need to take breaks every time I get angry with myself for writing another page of drek, or for
