Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Even you, with your above-average levels of patience and compassion, may find yourself tested this week. Even you can only take so much shit before you explode. Unfortunately, because you’re used to insensitive bores, and abnormally tolerant of them, you haven’t developed your brush-off and evasion skills as well as some of the rest of us. You need a partner-in-crime to help you prevent a scene. Find a Libra; they’re experts at avoiding confrontation. Failing that, grab a Leo and beg them to escort you to the nearest exit. At least that way, if you get caught, you’ll have someone who can roar louder than any of the folks you’re trying to avoid.



Aries (March 21-April 19)


I know it’s cliché, but if your life were an amusement park ride, it would definitely be a roller coaster. Other people get to ride the kiddy train, enjoying a smooth, stress-free, predictable path from point A to point B. Some get stuck on the merry-go-round and never get anywhere. This week you can get off the ride you’re on and change it up for something else, but I wouldn’t, if I were you. Even though you might be sick of the tumultuous ups and downs, at the moment, I really don’t think you’d ultimately want it any other way (at least not for long).



Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You’ve got spiritual chicken pox. Don’t scratch that itch; it’ll leave a scar. Right now you’ve got to do what it takes to keep yourself from going there, because the consequences aren’t worth the brief satisfaction you’d get out of indulging yourself. Have someone bind your hands in oven mitts and duct tape. Provide yourself with an endless stream of distractions so you don’t succumb to the urge to scratch yourself until you bleed. Eventually, in a week or two the temptation to scar yourself for a fleeting moment of pleasure will fade, and you’ll be able to remove the oven mitts and get on with your life—just not yet.



Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You’re charming. This is both a strength and a weakness, I’m afraid. Your habit of turning up the volume on your charisma, when things aren’t quite going your way, is sometimes a bad one. Unfortunately, it’s had a lot of reinforcement over the years, since it almost always works. What’s the problem? This week, it won’t. Those your dealing with are immune to (or perhaps even averse to) charm. Because this has been your crutch, your available alternative tools are almost nonexistent. I’m afraid you’re going to have to do this directly. If you can prove you’re actually better than your competition, and not just better-looking, you might still turn this the way you want it go.



Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Forget revenge. Harboring thoughts or plans of vengeance, or worse, enacting them, would be way too damaging to your psyche, soul, and overall wellbeing. It may feel unthinkable to just let things go without getting in at least the last word, yet that is quite simply what you should do this week. Of course, you can go ahead and succumb to the temptation to lash out, one last time, at those who’ve wrong you, but don’t say you weren’t warned. This could be over now, if you let it be. Or it could haunt you for months or perhaps years. It’s your choice.



Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You know what a difference a tiny taste of hedonistic pleasure can make; you’re quick enough to reward yourself with these whenever you feel the need. It helps you get through the bullshit and suffering that so much of life is. It’s that spoonful of sugar that helps the medicine go down. Share your Leonine wisdom. Please stop watching someone else struggle with a difficult time without offering (or insisting) upon that little bit of pleasure that will make things so much better, or at least more bearable. It’s what you wish someone would do for you, isn’t it?



Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’ve been hunting forever, and still you haven’t managed to trap your quarry. I’m sure it’s occurred to you that you may not even be looking in the right place, or using the right methods, but since you can’t think of anywhere else to look or any better way to go about it, you just keep soldiering on. Unfortunately, because of your energetic, determined, and exceedingly stubborn nature, it’s never even crossed your mind to give up. This is why you have friends and a friendly neighborhood astrologer—to tell you to. This is not going to happen. Give up. Stop wasting your time and use it for something that will actually do you good.



Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You think you might find happiness in the bottom of that cup, which is why you keep overturning the thing, trying to find that last drop, but it’s just not there to be found, I’m afraid. I appreciate your willingness to follow this road to the very end of the line, but don’t be bitter that it didn’t go where you wanted it to. It’s time to wash the dishes, recycle the empty bottles, and look for serenity and joy elsewhere. You can’t say you didn’t try it this way. By now you ought to have definitive proof that it didn’t work. Are you really too stubborn to change things up, or can you be flexible enough to opt for something completely new?



Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Don’t let yourself get derailed. It doesn’t happen to you often; usually your single-mindedness keeps you pretty much unshakably on track. Not this time, though. There are too many forces at work here for you to be able to rely on your usual levels of obsessiveness. Remember the other times you’ve floundered and gone astray from the path you’d chosen, and how long it took you to find it again. Your increased determination ought to help, but it might not be enough. If you think you might not be able to navigate at the moment, ask for help. I don’t think Jesus is about to take the wheel, but one of your friends might.



Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Don’t worry, you haven’t become boring, even if you’re going through a less-than-thrilling phase. You like to think of yourself as a wild one, which is why you’re more surprised than anyone when your desires run to the tame, the vanilla, and the safe. Just go with it. Even the wildest of daredevils needs a safe place to start from, before she hurls herself from a cliff or under a train. Maybe you just need a break. Or maybe this is the wind-up for a wilder adventure than you’ve so far been on. This could be the flat ground for your running start. Is it?



Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This week you have permission not to apologize (unless you’ve actually done something wrong). You don’t have to say you’re sorry for who you are, or for not being into something, or for your interests. It is what it is, and people who are intent on criticizing you for it had better get some better hobbies. You’re under a lot of scrutiny lately, and it’s not fair. I do hope you put yourself under the magnifying glass periodically, and check that what you’re doing is on the up and up, and good for you and yours. But that’s not anyone else’s business. Remember that this week, when people insist otherwise.



Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

What was up with all the drama this winter? Was it because people were cooped up with nothing better to do? I know you’re as relieved as I am that the temperature’s changing; hopefully we’ll see some variation in the emotional climate, too. However, just as Spring generally comes in heralded by stormy rains, there’s probably another tempestuous drama on your horizon as well. Weather it as well as you can, Aquarius, and do your best to minimize the fallout and damage. Stay strong and watch for the green shoots of new beginnings. They’re what will get you through Winter’s last few freak-outs.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Allow yourself to fall in love with humanity. Make our flaws and foibles as likely to elicit giddy stomach butterflies as our more noble virtues. It should be easy for you, because compassion is second nature to you Fish. Sanguine acceptance of all that we are, as a race, is going to help you through the iffy situations you’re likely to encounter this week. People can’t help their many imperfections, and these will all be on unignorable display this week. Forgive people their defects. It’s the key to staying sane and, if not giddily happy, then at least not miserable.



Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your first reaction when stung by a bee will probably be to hunt down the insect and kill it, even if you know it’ll probably die soon anyway, on its own. (Many kinds of bees lose their stingers when they use them, and perish.) I don’t blame you, and certainly understand the impulse, but I beg you to control it, nevertheless. Expending your energies on needless vengeance would be such a poor choice, considering everything you’ve got on your plate at the moment. How fast can you forgive and forget, actually? This week, find out.



Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This week is like that freak snowstorm that hits long after you thought winter was over. Suddenly you’re snowed in, and all your winter clothes are already packed away in boxes. Okay, so you find yourself unprepared and a little overwhelmed. The good news is, what you have to do is about as clear as it could be, albeit a huge hassle. There’s nothing for it but to get right to work. It is what it is. There’s no lesson to be learned here except that the best-laid plans often go awry. You can’t consistently predict the future, so you might as well be flexible and deal with what happens, rather than what ought to happen. Stop bitching and get on with it.



Gemini (May 21-June 20)

When in doubt this week, go old school. You Twins pride yourselves on being forward-thinking but there are certain situations which your great-grandparents could handle more ably than you can. Think of them (or hypothetical versions of them) when you encounter circumstances that have you at a loss this week. Some old-fashioned courtship, a handwritten letter, or an application of the best of old-world values could go a long way towards sealing a deal or making people happy.



Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Send an anonymous letter to someone you appreciate. Leave surprise, untraceable gifts for those you love. Your job this week is to spread the love as much as you can, without anyone guessing that it’s you. Why the anonymity? Because you don’t want anyone accusing you of vested motives, or for your gifts to be tainted by people’s own internal baggage. Also, adding a pleasant mystery to someone’s life is almost always a good thing. Lastly, in order to avoid “suspicion,” you’d better give yourself a gift as well, one just as nice as the others.



Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Negativity breeds negativity. There are a number of obstacles between you and your objectives, but don’t hate them. They are what they are, and pouring spite upon them will only drag you down, and have virtually no effect on them. Be positive and radiant and benevolent—the best aspects of your sign. Ultimately, don’t wish them ill when you can wish them well instead. Heap so many blessings upon your adversaries and opponents that they can’t be bothered with blocking your way anymore. It might not satisfy your mean streak, but it’ll get you where you want to go. Since nothing else will, what have you got to lose?



Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Halfway won’t cut it this week. The advice you’ve received and are contemplating following is good advice—if you heed it to the letter and follow through to its logical conclusion. You can’t break this wisdom down into manageable chunks. It’s all or nothing. Only partially pursuing this course of action would be utterly disastrous. Make sure, before you start on this path, that you’ll be able to stay unflinchingly on it to the very end, no matter what happens, or you could wind up making things quite a good deal worse than they are already.



Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The reason you still haven’t found what you’re looking for is because that keeps changing. By the time you get what you wanted, your desires have moved on, so that you just don’t really want it anymore. Shit happens. But please stop thinking of yourself as unlucky so much as a victim of your own dynamic desires. If you could just keep wanting something long enough, you would get it. Now, what’s it going to be? Will you choose a goal and stick to it until you get it? Or will you accept your dynamic agenda as part of who you are, and that perhaps the journey to your ever-changing destinations is better than ever getting there (which you probably won’t)?



Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

How lucky are you, to be surrounded by such extraordinary people? I hope you’re inspired by their examples, by the choices they make and the paths they pursue. If this is the case, make sure they feel appreciated this week. If it’s not, ask yourself why. Is it because you yourself haven’t been making brave, inspiring, decisions? Or because you haven’t challenged yourself to get out there and find the people who’ll ultimately help you fulfill your full potential? This is a good week to diagnose whatever’s wrong with your social life—if anything—and take the first steps towards fixing it.



Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Where, exactly, were those boundaries? Just as I thought: you’ve lost track. It’s all well and good to fuzz the lines drawn between you and other people, but when you lose sight of them altogether things can get very messy. That’s very likely this week. You don’t want to overstep your welcome, or provide anyone with more information than they ever cared to know. This week, take a step back and pragmatically and objectively evaluate where those boundaries probably are, even given all that’s happened so far. Draw them in again, at least in your own mind. It’s the only way to avoid the fearsome trouble that’s likely to ensue if you don’t.



Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

In general, you’re an extremely patient person. But even your remarkable tolerance can be tested when you don’t get what you probably deserve. Here you’ve been very serenely waiting your turn, and when it finally comes no one seems to notice. That would irk anyone. Don’t, however, throw a tantrum, though one may be lurking just beneath your skin. A hissy fit right now would get you attention, but not the kind you want or deserve. Worse, it would preclude you from receiving the accolades and recognition that are, admittedly, late, but still on their way.



Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Remember that slightly cruel childhood game, Monkey in the Middle? You may feel you’re engaged in a more subtle, adult version of that this week, as what you want gets tossed over your head repeatedly, just out of reach. It’s all supposed to be good fun, but in reality it’s not, so much. Don’t make the mistake of trying to jump up and catch it; you never will. Instead do what you have to do to end the game once and for all—most likely that will involve taking out one of the other players, or—better yet—getting him on to your side. Then, next time you’re in control, be aware of the kinds of games you play; make sure you’re not putting anyone else in the kind of situation you just got out of.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Don’t look at not being included in something as being deliberately left out, or as anything personal. There are probably many other factors you may not be aware of or that you’re deliberately blinding yourself to. You can go ahead and see this as a personal slight, but you’d only be shooting yourself in the foot in the long run. Treating someone as if they’ve insulted you when they’re actually just doing their job will earn you scorn, defensiveness, and a reputation as prickly and clueless—but certainly not a place in whatever you wanted to be part of. See the big picture, chill out, and wait your turn. It’ll come.



Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Having the possibility of freedom looming before you can be terrifying. It’s very much like that feeling that washes over you standing on the edge of a cliff and knowing that with one choice—a whim, even—you could go tumbling off it. Choosing freedom, too, is risky. You could die. But it’s not as surely lethal as leaping into the Grand Canyon would be. Turn away from it if you must; your cage is pretty nicely gilded, after all. But at least walk up to the precipice, take a deep breath, and think about jumping off.



Aries (March 21-April 19)

You want to help? Lend someone your expertise. I know that your interests have changed, and that you’d rather devote your energy to the areas you’re still a newb in, that are exciting and fresh. However, because you’re still just learning, you actually can’t be all that helpful. We need you for the stuff you’re good at right now. Revisiting your old haunts and doing shit you’ve already done a thousand times may not be all that interesting, but it would be incredibly accommodating and generous of you—and likely to inspire a little reciprocal generosity, which is never a bad thing.



Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Most people will eventually edit a bad first impression of someone, if they see enough evidence to the contrary, but not you Bulls. You’ll sometimes stick to that wrongful idea to the bitter end, turning a completely blind eye to proof that things are contrary to what you believe. Isn’t that what’s happening now? No? Are you sure? If you’ll admit it (a feat unto itself, I know), you haven’t taken a close look at everything that’s happened since the faux pas that made up your mind about someone. Won’t you do that now? If you do so with an open mind, yes, you’ll have to admit you were wrong. But that’s a small price to pay, considering what you’ll get in return: a great new friend.



Gemini (May 21-June 20)


The third time may be the charm. Won’t you give this loveable loser a third chance? You might disagree philosophically with second or third chances, or resent it because of how rarely you’ve been cut a break, but sometimes it’s a good idea to bend the rules. This is one of those times, because even though there’s always a chance that she’ll strike out and fail miserably as she already has twice before, odds are that this time she’ll rise up and pleasantly surprise everyone by actually pulling off whatever stunt she’d previously crashed and burned on. Wouldn’t you like to see that? You can.



Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Do you believe in ghosts? I do. Not necessarily spectral entities banging doors or slinging ectoplasm at stuff, but more like memories that have lives of their own. They influence you whether you like it or not—sometimes spurring you on, sometimes tripping you up or holding you back. Even though they live inside your head, it doesn’t seem like you can control them. You can, though. They can be exorcised, chained, or even made into allies, but probably not by you alone. You need someone to help you wrangle your ghosts. This week, look for that person and you’ll probably find him.



Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)


There’s nothing wrong with using a calculator to figure out your bills if you suck at doing math in your head. Not bothering to do the math at all is another story—that would be bad. Recognize your weaknesses and own them. There’s no need to feel bad about them. We all suck at some things, and it’s better to identify what they are, and figure out a way to make up for them, than to not acknowledge or confront them at all. By ignoring the problem you’re exacerbating it. Go buy a calculator—or otherwise acquire the help you need to compensate for your shortcomings.



Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

People like you. They really like you—except when they don’t. Hopefully you’ve figured this out by now, but just in case you haven’t: There is nothing you can do to make the people who don’t like you start liking you. In fact, trying to do so is only likely to solidify their negative opinions about you. They may warm up to you eventually, but only on their own and on their own time. Trying to ingratiate yourself will only backfire, so please give it up. Enjoy the people who enjoy you and quite simply do your best to ignore the rest.



Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Go ahead and pine away. Spin some sugar-spun fairy tale around your longing, and pretend you’re Sleeping Beauty singing, “Someday my prince(ss) will come…” Don’t mind us sniggering behind our hands or feeling sorry for you because you’re really that dopey. Or you can go ahead and venture forth into the wilds. Dig up your own rough diamond, brave frightening monsters, and actually make shit happen. Waiting isn’t doing you any good. It’s time to kick your own ass and write your own fairy tale starring you as hero, not victim waiting to be rescued.



Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

If you want proof that you rock, look around you. Check out the people who love you. Their awesomeness, and the affection they bequeath upon you, should be evidence enough that you’re great. I hope you can figure out a way to be satisfied with that. If you really have to look further to find the validation and appreciation you crave, you’re going to get into trouble. In most cases, your quest will probably end in failure. Not only that, it’s likely to sabotage at least some of the good stuff you’ve already got. Look at your friends again, and feel the love. With all this, you really shouldn’t feel hungry for more. It’s a veritable feast. Dig in.



Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Usually you’re really good at sorting between your brilliant ideas and your abysmal ones—after the fact. Giving your inspired thinking a little time to percolate is always a good idea, especially when it’s something dramatic or potentially life-changing. I know there’s a lot of energy in the idea right now, and you’re going to want to run with it, but please resist that urge. There could be a wall up ahead, or you could end up running in the wrong direction, then have to work that much harder to make up lost ground. Keep your inspiration and temptation in check until the dust has had a little time to settle and you can be sure this is the right way for you to go. You might not run as fast, having waited, but you’ll be a lot less likely to trip and fall flat on your face.



Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Sell the complete package. By so strongly emphasizing only your strengths, you’re really selling yourself short. Not only do you also bring a plethora of perfectly acceptable, solid, average skills to the table(without which your most brilliant talents don’t mean as much), but by so diligently obscuring and hiding your weaknesses (which aren’t as bad as you seem to think) you’re presenting what’s obviously not a complete picture. My advice: let it all hang out. The good, the bad, the ugly. None of it is so bad nor so ugly that it will turn someone away, and by showing it all you add one more thing to your list of positive qualities: refreshing openness and honesty.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Some parts of you are ready to move on, but some aren’t. Perhaps your restless
brain urges you forward, with logical arguments why you should; nevertheless, it can’t completely
overrule your heart, which lingers reluctantly behind out of sentimentality or unrequited love.
Maybe your gut knows, in that way it has, that you need change and advancement, but it’s your
nervous mind that’s holding you back, riddled with anxiety, worry and fear. In any case, because
of these internal conflicts, transformation or movement may be slower than you wish, but don’t
let it stall out. Make whatever concessions are required to get all the parts of you moving in the
same direction, then hit the road.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Your cat hates you. If it was big enough, it would pin you down and eat your liver
right out of your living body. Its diminutive size requires it to view you as a food dispenser, radiator
and masseur, instead of as plaything and prey. Any love you perceive coming from it is purely projection:
your desperate wish, whose many contradictions you choose to ignore. If you haven’t figured out
where I’m going with this, I’ll make it more plain: This week, you’ll be forced to face a few unpleasant
truths, whether you like it or not. You can choose to ignore their persistent presentation, if you
insist—but that doesn’t make them any less true.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21

You’re like a bascule bridge between two major cities. Most of the time you’re
open to lots of traffic, whether sexual, mental or physical, but when a large boat—bearing
as its cargo some kind of mental process—needs to pass underneath, you raise your span, and
it could be months or years before anyone gets across again. This could be unnerving and frustrating
for those on either side, who start honking their horns and risking dangerous U-turns. There’s
no need for that kind of chaos, though. Please put a stop to it. Hint: Most people don’t mind waiting
so much if they know how long their wait will be.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Hey, Stalky McObsessington. In general, you’re so resistant to emotional
entanglement that when someone finally (and almost always accidentally and unintentionally)
snares you in their net, you think you’re entitled to some kind of special treatment. It must be special,
it’s fate, you declare, totally different from other people’s more common and frequent infatuations.
Maybe it is, maybe not; in any case your love interest doesn’t have to (and probably doesn’t) see
it that way. Thus the overzealous pursuit on your part. I know it’s hard—perhaps even impossible—but
the next time this kind of passion strikes you, by all means go there, but be ready to bank those fires
a bit if your potential partner burns less brightly, or more slowly.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Try something new. I know you like your tried-and-true roster of winning
combinations, but what you’re perfectly happy with day after day and year after year can bore some
of those who wish to share it with you. Go ahead, dip your strawberries in a white-chocolate balsamic-vinegar
fondue, or visit the opera instead of the baseball stadium, or ride a bicycle to work. Chances are
you’re not going to like these things as much as the stuff you already know and love, but you’ll still
enjoy trying them, nevertheless, and—even more important—your companions will
truly appreciate trying them with you.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18

Not everyone is against you, even though you’re definitely not the most popular
guy or gal around at the moment. When the politics of the situation are so negative to someone of your
views and tendencies, you have to choose, carefully, when to make a stand, and when to lie low and
allow the brunt of the negativity to wash over you. This is one of those weeks where you’re best off
hunkering down and, to some extent, hiding out. Let the hurricane winds blow over. It’s not that
they’d blow you away—you’re too solid for that. But you could end up with a speck in your eye
that you can’t get out for weeks.

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20

Sometimes you just have to take your punches. Resistance is useful, but not
likely to be successful. In other words, prepare to fight the good fight but don’t be too traumatized
when you get your ass kicked; you’re outnumbered, after all. I’m actually not too worried for you,
although you do have my sympathies; the kind of friend who’ll show up when you’re battered, bruised
and feeling sorry for yourself, ready to nurse you back to your strength and health, is the rarest
and most special kind—and knowing just who that is, a rare and special kind of knowledge.

Aries March 21-April 19

Drowning your sorrows would be a very bad idea right now. Booze probably won’t
even provide the numbness you crave; in all likelihood, it’ll act like a lens on your troubles, making
them seem much bigger than they are. And you certainly won’t be less daunted during a morning hangover.
Better to keep a firm grip on your resolve and avoid self-medication. You can actually bring these
minor quandaries to satisfactory conclusions if you just bite the bullet and get the necessary
bits of unpleasantness over with. And of course, there’ll always be time for a celebratory drink
afterward, when you actually have occasion for it.

Taurus April 20-May 20

Doubt from within you’re used to. But when it comes from someone whom you count
on for more or less unconditional support, it stings. It feels like you’re five and Mom and Dad are
telling you to give up your dreams of becoming an astronaut because they just don’t think you can
do it, and they don’t want you to be disappointed. Parents like that have no excuse; they should know
better. But the person who’s let you down might not know that her job is to always be on your side, no
matter what—even when it means suppressing (or at least rewording) her own doubts. Clue
her in; I don’t think it’s a job she’ll mind doing, once she knows that’s what you need.

Gemini May 21-June 20

A first draft is allowed to be messy; it can be total shit. No one is ever going
to see it, so who cares? You do, apparently, but I wish you wouldn’t. Your perfectionism is striking
at the wrong time, demanding that you get everything right the first time around. It almost never
works that way, though; what you’re actually doing is narrowing your creative channel so that it’s
barely a trickle, and probably about to dry up completely. You’ve got to open the tap and let a flood
come through. Later you can distill and filter that stuff until you get exactly the microbrew of
delicious creativity you originally desired. Remember, it’s a process you’re aiming for at the
moment, not a product.

Cancer June 21-July 22

I’m hungry. My stomach is growling as I write this sentence, but I’m ignoring
its demands as an example to you. Fuck the instant gratification thing this week. Your desires will
be coming upon you close and fast; if you’re set on seeking their immediate fulfillment, you won’t
have a moment to rest, or to enjoy the occasional satisfactions that come your way. You’ve got to
learn to live with your hunger, now and in general. The best part is, once you do get to eat after being
hungry for a while, food tastes a whole lot better.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22

You have allies; they’re just not always obvious, or as quick to action as
you are. In this case, your most important and useful aide-de-camp is someone with whom you often
butt heads. In fact, recent conflicts may make them a bit slow or reluctant to come to your aid. But
in the end, in this particular instance, you’re both on the same side, and the other person will eventually
have your back. In other words, don’t despair. Choose your spot and hold your ground, with dignity
and honor. You won’t have to stand there alone for very long.
