clinging to the mountain


Frederick posted this on his FB page yesterday with the caption, “Today in Capricorn…” & I am feeling it. With Mars and Venus opposing one another and squaring my Sun I’m seriously done in. That’s not why I’m done in, I don’t want to talk about why I’m done in, but damn if it doesn’t describe it pretty well. Maybe not so well as this picture though, which in my current mood is just incredibly depressing.

But you know, that’s the funny thing about Capricorns, tomorrow this picture might be totally inspiring to me. Fucking GOATS.

The best horoscope I ever read for a Capricorn read, “No one likes you. Just kill yourself already. ” That probably sounds awful but it really made me laugh and looking at this picture makes me think of it. Just give up, Goat. Let go. Where the hell do you think you’re going, anyway?

Note to anyone reading this, I am NOT suicidal, nor serious. Those were jokes. Bah. Now I’m irritated I have to say that. Fucking Capricorn. Fucking sucks.

By the way, this goat is not going anywhere. To paraphrase Thich Nhat Hanh, there are two ways to climb the mountain: one way is to climb the mountain to get to the top of the mountain and the other way is to climb the mountain to climb the mountain. It may take awhile to realize this, but the real strength of a goat lies in scaling the ascent, not in reaching the summit.
