It wasnt a sex dream, not in the sense of the normal sweaty, smelly, grunty paroxysms of pleasure that a normal sex dream provides. This was different: there was a naked redhead with a great ass, and we were in bed together cuddling. I was trailing my fingers gently down her back, and she was squirming and sighing, and we were both content. Waking up this morning was way hard.

I don't know where this goes.

On one hand, I really liked the feeling, the contentment, the affection, the cuddling. I want that. On the other, My Lovely Redheaded Friend isn't likely to be hanging around naked with me cuddling, and she has a whole lot of future to go through yet that's not gonna involve me.

It's always the problem, innit? That the object of my affections transforms in the morning into a real person with her own goals, hopes, dreams, and plans, and fades away like a ghost in the sunlight. The dream girl is there when I sleep, happy and beautiful.

When does two plus two seemingly make twenty-two? And when, for that matter, does two take away one appear to leave zero? When there's a relationship going on. It doesn't have to be a romantic one. Whenever you are close to someone, be it a friend, a member of your family, a colleague or a partner, things just don't add up in the same way that they do when you only have to think of yourself. Be influenced by what someone else thinks and feels, but don't be overwhelmed by this.

"Nothing would be done at all," said Cardinal Newman, "if a man waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault with it." Let's forgive his sexist language and concentrate on the truth he articulates, which is profoundly apt for you right now. It's important that you try to do what you can't do very well--that you not use your lack of mastery as an excuse to avoid practicing an immature skill. Be willing to look foolish as you improve, and paradoxically you will often appear brave and inspired.

This is a good influence for heavy mental work and for tasks that require disciplined thinking. Your critical faculties are sharp and your standards are high. However, you won't find it easy to communicate with others; either you will have difficulty being understood, or you will give a more negative impression than you intended. This is not a good time for important negotiations or business transactions because communications between you and the other parties will probably be delayed or misinterpreted. Also it will be difficult to make the right kind of positive impression in such a situation, so delay personal contact until another day. Today you are able to think very practically, but do not let this practicality turn into narrow- mindedness or a total lack of vision.

Looks like a time that's good to be invisible.
