Meanwhile, I am on day three of fundraising for the next year of daily horoscope writing. Today's goal is to gain the support of ten more readers! To help me get there, pitch in and and pick one of the gift readings I'm offering through this year's Kickstarter!
I can't do this work without your support. Today I am deeply thankful for all of my readers and for the opportunity to do this work day in and day out.
Prayer: Surround us with the spirit of gratitude, even as we continue to work for greater peace in the world.
