Crazy Aunt Purl's Horoscopes

I found this via Stuntmother. I think I'm going to need to read these every month.

I am a Pisces.

PISCES (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You know how people will take on projects, like home improvement stuff and even crafty things, and they just go at this endeavor with every free moment, spending all their time and energy happily puttering away? I call this "taking something on as an art project." We do it all the time, and Pisces is great at it! There's something magic about a Pisces and their ability to transform something into real art. So I think that this month (and all the way into the summer) you need to take YOURSELF on as an art project. Evaluate your raw materials, make a list (both a to-do list and a shopping list) and get to work excavating the treasure within. I love Pisces and I love that this is your birthday time and so I hope you consider this a little task for your new year ahead -- I say "task" because Lord knows ya'll can't think of it as a present to yourselves (I know how you are, Pisces.) You need to take some time appraising yourself, your life, your situation. Sizing yourself up as well (and often) as you do your closest companions. Think of what you'd like this art project to one day look like, then set yourself out to make your art project come to life.
This rings very true for me- especially the part about task vs present! Funnily enough, that was the message today at therapy. I had a tough patch last fall, and started seeing a counselor (I've been before, but hadn't seen anyone in a while). I'm doing much better, and I didn't make an appointment when I left- I guess I've graduated : ) She said the most important thing I can do to manage anxiety is to take care of myself. I know that I need to care for myself, but hearing someone else tell me so makes me want to work even harder at it (overachiever? who, me?).

Magnesium is really important for anxiety as well. I have been taking it for a month and have noticed a difference. All the best.
