Letters. Who doesn’t enjoy getting a letter? Sadly, in this age of text messages and emails, usually the letters that come in my post box are addressed to “Occupant”. Or “Home Owner”. And if it’s not that, it’s a bill. Bleh.

I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
