- That wishing well had not a body in’t,
Which might be felt, that we, the poorer born,
Whose baser stars do shut us up in wishes,

Austin, this weekend!
Horoscopes starting 7.13.2017
Cancer:Instead of wrestling with the demons? Get all cozy with them. Mars makes nice with the Sun, third quarter moon, makes some Lunar Affected signs disorderly, and there’s always that sense that there’s something just around the corner. Up ahead, not quite here, yet. Back to the sign of the Crab? Happy birthday, as there’s one left. With that's out of the way? There’s a single, easy way to make this week’s weirdness work. Get cozy with your demons. I know you have some, creatures that lurk just below the conscious mind’s cognitive skill sets. Beastly, possibly demonic–looking, but not always nearly as harmful as one would have us believe, am I right? Invite those demons in, or over, and maybe make them a nice cup of calming tea. Chamomile comes to mind, and for some of those demons? Add a hefty shot of bourbon to the tea. “Wow, this is good,” the wee beastie says, “I’ll just take a short nap,” and the critter passes out. See how this worked?
I have to assume that you’re more than passing familiar with your demons. If it’s an alcoholic demon, maybe not putting the bourbon in the tea is the secret. Just shows that we have to adjust this remedy on a case–by–case basis, but you do understand, the basic solution is to get comfy with those demons.
The Leo:One of my stranger affectations in that I have no indoor plants. No little houseplants, no ferns, no flowering pots, no, I don’t have any plants indoors. For a reason, you know? I mean, part of this is from living in a trailer for so long, but part of it is merely because I can, at times, be gone for weeks at a time. Other times, I might be home for months, but then, I get called out of town, and all I have to do is set the alarm then lock the door. When I’m not there? No living critters in the house.
