The Quotes for the Signs feature seems to have taken on a life of its own. It’s out of control, like H.A.L. the computer in "2001, A Space Odyssey." Quotes insists on celebrating everything! Virgo has two quotes because my Mercury in Libra just could not choose between equal greats. (This is The Radical Virgo, so I figured the extra one is for the blog.) Much love to you on this hearty holiday and every day!
