I wrote a book in third grade. I decided that I wanted to be a writer, but then I decided that I wasn’t clever enough to be a writer, and eventually after that I realized compulsive writing is being a writer.
I write my thoughts down d. I have notes (reflective of my Virgo Ascendant, I think), two blogs, a few social network memberships, and a separate dream journal.
I used to write short stories, and the occasional poem, but not in a while. Writing this blog made me realize how rusty my skills are after not writing for an audience in 10 years. I broke up with my first serious boyfriend, for many reasons, but one was that he had no paper or pens lying around his house. I can’t imagine being with someone who doesn’t enjoy reading and writing.
I haven’t written a love letter in so long, I mailed the first letter yesterday. To my surprise, when I opened my email, I saw that my boyfriend sent me a tender, email love letter this morning, though he has not received my first letter yet.
Although Mercury in Capricorn wants everyone to be business- minded, it travels through my 5th house of love, romance and creativity. It seems appropriate that the sudden urge to get serious about writing love letters coincides with Mercury’s retrograde through ♑ and the 5th house.
