Inside a wooden frame the following words had once hung on a wall:
Taurus and Virgo:
Both earth signs share the ability to communicate and understand one another intuitively. Their conversations get better over time and so does the relationship. They will understand each other’s goals and hopes for the future. There is an unspoken bond here that once established, hardly ever gets broken. They will provide each other with what the other person instinctively needs and desires sexually. You can’t go wrong with this astrological combination, period. A strong attraction and loyalty will keep these two together. Relatives can sometimes be a problem for these two. Virgos understand that listening to their Taurus can provide them the sort of answers that they cannot figure out on their own. The smart Virgo recognizes that Taurus mate knows how to reach them in ways that no other can. Focus on healing yourselves and each other and you will have a mate for life.
It took a while for him to decide to take the picture off of the wall and even longer to move it from the house to the garage.
Of course that didn’t count the two times that he had taken it off of the wall and placed it in the dumpster outside.
Each time he had intended to let the trashmen pick it up and take it to the dump and each time he had waited until the last moment to race outside and rescue it from whatever fate it would have suffered.
Both times he had whispered angry words at the picture knowing full well that it had no capacity to respond or to even hear what it was he muttered at it.
But that didn’t stop him from saying whatever it was he said not that any of were privy to whatever it was he shared because it was never said loud enough to be heard by others.
And had someone asked he would have told them that if he wanted them to know he would tell them but he didn’t, so they wouldn’t.
So the picture sat inside the house in a corner of a closet where it lay in the dark not knowing if that was where it would stay.
Of course pictures can’t talk, think or feel and if they could maybe this one would have responded to whatever it was the man had whispered at it.
But no one knew if they would be words of anger or encouragement anymore than they knew how he would have responded.
It might have been with shock, surprise or understanding or perhaps a combination of all three.
Not that any of it mattered because pictures don’t speak and men don’t share what they don’t want known until they are ready for it to be heard.
That is the challenge of dealing with the truth and lies of astrology.
There are those who believe and those who don’t and somewhere in between are those who wonder if maybe sometimes there is something more to it than fantasy.
Maybe if you heard what he said you’d know where his thoughts ont eh matter lay or maybe you wouldn’t.
Sometimes life could fool you, but whether that was a good or bad thing all depended on what side of the shadow you stood upon.
