Happy Birthday to ME

 This is practically the only day of the year I seek out and read my horoscope for the year ahead.

I'm a GOAT!


2014 is a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It's a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It's a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice - explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.

Freedom and exploration-sounds like my plans for going out west, to Zion and Colorado and hopefully the Wasatch Mountain Range-fit right in here!

Personal and Social Life in 2014:

The year begins with five planets in Capricorn - the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Pluto. This suggests that you will be very busy, but that doesn't just apply to your job/work.

With Jupiter in Cancer most of the year and opposing planets in your sign at every turn, you may find yourself knee deep in home maintenance. And this doesn't just mean upkeep of your physical residence. It also means keeping family and romantic ties strong with a certain amount of effort. The "work" required will often be pleasant, but if you've ever wanted a reason to avoid laziness, this is it.

So how did the horoscope know we are getting ready to re-wire the house-which will entail some home remodelling?

Adding to the momentum - particularly later in the year - is Jupiter's position in Leo starting in mid-July. Not only are you getting your second wind, but at last the work-to-results ratio is skewing in the favor of results.

Sounds good for a fall 100 mile race..

What those results may be could surprise you, but they're worth the continued effort at the same time. You'll be seeing progress in interpersonal relationships, status, and emotional balance.

But why stop when things are getting good? When Mars in Sagittarius trines Jupiter in Leo on October 8, even retrograde Mercury can't slow you down!

My run this morning:

It was 16 degrees F when I started, 9 degrees when I got home.  It really was not that bad out. 

 I wore running tights under my wind pants. I wore one merino wool shirt under my eVent jacket.  I had my Seirus face mask and my new fleecy North Face hat.
 When I would get on the ridgeline the wind would get pretty brutal, and I would pull the hood on my jacket up to help block the wind.  My eyelashes got a little frozen, but I didn't want the weather to be an excuse for not running some birthday miles!

  1. happy birthday! I too am a goat. The horoscope for the year sounds intriguing!
    Also, you are a bad ass. When I run tonight sans facemask (maybe my buff) I will remind myself that you have it much worse on the ridgeline (no wind usually in Rock Creek Park).
