Another year bites the dust

Today is my birthday. Yes, presents will be accepted graciously, thank you.

I am a Gemini. If you know any Gemini's you know that we are a handful and our moods changes in an instant.

I have spent the last 24 hours with some food poisoning-like illness, there is a great prelude a birthday let me tell you. No need to get into details suffice it to say that I couldn't believe that the Immodium did not work.

Last night at one point I think I actually prayed for death or maybe it was just the delerium from the fever, pool of sweat & violent chills that I was experiencing for hours on end. I'm really not sure. So today instead of a Tomanetti's Pizza with extra cheese and a cake from Oakmont Bakery I'm hoping to keep toast and Coke in me.

So I went online because I wanted to find out if this was going to be a banner year for me. Since, let's face it this past year has totally sucked. Here is what I found out:
If Today is Your Birthday: June 9

Sexuality, energy, and creativity are enhanced and in focus this year. Love, friendship, relationships, and social life are emphasized. Self-confidence and action are highlighted in the year ahead. You tend to instinctively know the right course of action to take in most situations. Your desire nature is strong, and increased physical activity, including sexual, is likely. Independent work is favored. Competitive activities may also thrive this year. You are creative, and you succeed in areas that allow you to make something beautiful, attractive, or entertaining. You are also especially romantic this year, and your happiness in romantic relationships is a big determinant of your overall happiness. You may fall in love, meet a future partner, or marry under this influence. Your charm, tact, and attractiveness are in the spotlight. Any artistic or musical talent you have is more prominent this year.

Pleasant sexual tension, libidinal attraction, and playful competitiveness in relationships figure strongly this year. Romance is in the air. Your sensuality, sex appeal, and animal magnetism are heightened. Now is also a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. If you are involved in competition, you could come out a winner.

Some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible this year. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. It may be that you experience sudden changes or breakups with a friend or lover. However, the chance of a sudden new friendship is just as likely. At the root of this is a stronger taste for the unusual. What is familiar is less exciting to you than what is new and different. If a relationship seems to threaten your sense of freedom, you may have an easy time separating from it. Some fireworks in both your social and financial lives are to be expected, keeping things fresh and exciting. The best way to handle this energy is to open yourself up to the need for change in your love life or with regards to how you spend and make money--or both. Get in touch with this need for new experiences and/or attitudes so that changes are not forced upon you. Your creativity is stimulated this year, but so is your excitability and your need for freedom. You are likely to be more outspoken than usual, perhaps even rebellious.

Mercury sextile Mars indicates a swift wit and a sharp tongue. Mental pursuits, new learning, and all forms of intellectual activity are favored. Expect to be involved in lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas powerfully to others, and you may be invited to speak before a group. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Adventuresome travel may be in the offing. Young people in your life may be particularly rambunctious.

Bursts of creativity and energy that help you to further your goals. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life.

A harmonious aspect between Jupiter and Uranus suggests this could be a "lucky" year, although the luck is likely to come from a positive attitude and an enterprising spirit. It should be a strong year when sudden opportunities for advancement in different areas of your life appear. At the heart of this is your ability to recognize and capitalize upon opportunities and potentials. You are more open to new energies, approaches, and attitudes under this influence. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of your willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. This aspect favors group activities, financial endeavors associated with groups or organizational efforts, educational pursuits, writing, publishing, speaking, and humanitarian efforts. A positive and optimistic outlook serves you especially well this year.

Relationships, mental pursuits, socializing, and creative expression are emphasized in your year ahead. Your ego is tied up in your social life and you have a chance to improve your social relationships, although a tendency to rebel could get you into hot water at times! A positive attitude and an enterprising spirit takes you places. Your emotions and your will harmonize, helping you in all areas of life.

2008 is a Number Seven year for you. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it's a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It's a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and "chance" meetings are probable. Advice - take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don't strain yourself or actively try to expand.

2009 will be a Number Eight year for you. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It's generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice - take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

Well, now ~ I guess it doesn't seem like too bad of a year ahead. Did I mention that Husband completely forgot my birthday? Oh yes he did. Unreal.

NO, I did not put the duct tape on their mouths.

They did it themselves sneakily and then came into the room to me like that.

Now that is a birthday present! I just had to take the photo.

Sounds like you ate a bad tomato.

No more tomatoes! They will kill you!

PS. Happy birthday, chica.

I wish you no more diarrhea.

Jenny, the Bloggess said...

Did it work? Did you have no more diarrhea? I didn't blow out any candles so I don't know if that wish worked.

Mia said...

No, Jenny, I can tell you the squirting continues. But I do thank you for the effort, perhaps it was the candle thing.

The duct tape picture is so great. haha. :)
I am a Gemini (May 24) and it's going to be a banner year, don't you worry! :)
Last Weds I had two big, beautiful tomatoes in my salad and ended up sick for three days. No idea if it was related but I felt like I was in that movie the Exorcist.
I sure hope you feel better soon and get your husband a calendar so he never forgets you again! :)

I agree it must have been those tomatoes.

I have been there about the birthday. After a very tearful conversation quite a few years ago amongst laying on the guilt with a dump truck. I can now say that he always remembers the month and always asks "Is it the 30th or 31st" well in advance as to not have that scene repeated again.

"Happy Birthday" sweet girl and feel better real soon.

P.S. - Love the photo.
