I love the new batch of astro quotes! I especially identify with the Taurus one - it is beautiful! (must be my taurus moon speaking.)

(I noticed that there wasn't a quote included for Cancer? Was it a trick to see if anyone noticed? - I did, I did! lol)

Thanks also for the chiron ebook, I am looking forward to making some quiet time and settling down to read it. - x

My Taurus Moon also loves the Taurus quote. It is so quintessentially Taurus! But EEEK! I had not noticed the missing Cancer quote (and you were the first to find/mention it--another prize to you!)I will fix that immediately. It must have gotten lopped off in one of my cut-and-pastes while editing. Word processing is a boon to humankind except for these kinds of errors to which it makes us prone. Read Virgo quote about life is editing! :)
