I'm looking for good short stories that make a strong impact. Any theme or genre will do.

Some of my favourites are:

- The Lottery
- Monkey Paw
- The Yellow Wallpaper

Thanks in advance!
While I love being a Sagittarius, sometimes Fire signs annoy me (including myself lol).

Leo can be WAY too egotistical and bossy. It's a real turn off, and I can see people avoiding them.
Aries too selfish and bad with attention to detail. Their obliviousness to people around them when they are sulking is astonishing.
Sagittarius, too restless and gullible.
Does anyone know some good website hosts for a restaurant business? Has anyone tried squarespace?

Thanks in advance.

Just wondering about the similarities and differences.

For fun, who would be more powerful in a competition?
I'm interested in this answer too.

My suggestion (and I'm not sure if it's right):

Call him out and then leave him alone. He needs time to think about things himself, and judge whether or not it's true. Be logical and tell him he's being emotional. Hopefully he will think about it on his own.

When a Virgo gets hypercritical towards you, it's usually because he's unhappy with something else that you did. They aren't great at direct communication!

Have you denied him something? If so, explain ad nauseam, why.

Redirect his attention on something else. Organize the house, the car. Clean everything. Don't talk too much, just start doing something.
Pros

- focused and serious
- great in bed
- high standards
- persistent and hardworking
- leadership qualities

Cons

- can be too "realistic"/negative
- boring
- complains too much
Sounds like she's interested but wanting to take it slow in terms of feelings.

Keep hanging out, having fun, and being a good friend to her. Be yourself and have your own opinions (she will respect you for that). Don't be a wet blanket or overly negative - as a Leo, you shouldn't have problems with that.
I used to think alone, but now, a kick-ass team is the dream. You can't do everything yourself, especially in business.

What the heck. My Cap got diagnosed with depression last week and started meds. They want him to stay on it for 6 weeks to see if it helps.

About 2 years ago, he had his first anxiety attack. The anxiety has caused so much grief and fighting with us whether he likes to admit it or not. It's been very tough on both of us.


Does he victimize himself a lot as well?

Yes!!

He does to the point where when it's my turn to talk after listening thoroughly to his stuff, he'll tell me how it'll never be as bad to how he has it. My stuff gets sidelined cause of how tough his life is.

Idk what to do with him.

what are some of the likes and dislikes about your placement?


Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Mid heaven in Sagittarius.

I like Sun and Jupiter as it does seem like I'm fortunate.

Would love to know what it means to have Sag in the other placements and your experiences with those.

It seems like I only attract Earth sign men for serious relationships. I have no earth in my planets.

-Taurus was my first bf of over 10 years

-Virguy friend who I now work almost everyday with doing a startup together. Have known each other for over 5 years.

-Capricorn guy that I've had a saga of a relationship with for almost 4 years.

I would say Cap is most challenging and demanding, Virguy most versatile, and Taurus most stubborn.

Yeah, there's nothing to this zodiac stuff at all...


Hey Star, thanks for the response.

I feel like I'm more of the white knight saving him sometimes. (Like all the time)

I don't want to lose sight of my goals and dreams. I was so cold dependant with my 7 yr ex.. all I did was build him into the man I knew he could be. And I was left in the ashes in a way.

I must remember ME too. Ya know? And I want a family and all that but then I question everything.


Meh, that's why I don't like the dynamic of the woman helping to build the man up/taking care of him. The dynamic just seems off, and turns weird imo. Sorry to hear that it ended badly.

Yes, remember what you want. With Taurus, they are super stubborn, if you don't see any improvement..do not wait around hoping he will change, he probably won't

Good luck, living with a Taurus can be awesome. I did that for 10 years. Feel free to ask me anything if needed. It should be easygoing and comfortable.




Please read the response I just wrote.

We share a Libra moon so talk about easy going lol. We tip toe but we are blunt in a pleasant way.


I question why he is so gung ho on me. He tells strangers we talk to that he plans on marrying me and I don't say much about it. I'm terrified. Mostly because I have a lot in my past, as he knows, and he is way too sensitive (which is nice) but it presents as a weakness and he mentioned he needs help with his confidence... So what am I? His catalyst? What and omg I don't know. I'm just rambling right now.

Taurus like what they like. Maybe you attract him with your looks, and your personality is appealing.

Men don't see a damsel in distress as that big of a deal. In fact, it might help him with his confidence because he's making more decisions when you're terrified.

Who did all cleaning & cooking ?

Did u feel moving in with one another made u relationship stronger or grew much closer?

He did 90% of the cleaning and cooking. Moving in made us closer, we were like a married couple.

Sags are optimistic and hate a downer.They don't understand it.
To a more negative, "realistic" sign, it might seem delusional.

Sags do need to be more patient with their words and reactions. I feel trapped way too quickly and easily. It's not good.

Jeez! What's wrong with a little cuddle...?

People take this stuff too seriously. Let me break it down (as someone who has been ghosted because I like to cuddle and plan picnics on the 1st and 2nd date):

1: Cuddling does not a relationship make.

2: Romance does not a relationship make.

I'm going to tell you a huge secret...

When you start a new job, you give 150% in the first week, right? You come in on time, you're curteous, cooperative...you put your best foot forward, right?

You want to show your employers that you're perfect for the job, right?

But it's the first week...you don't really know the culture at that new workplace, you don't know how good or bad HR is, you don't know if your payslip will be delivered on time and without errors or not, you don't know if your new boss is a nice person or not...but all that unknowing, doesn't mean that YOU can't give your very, very, best...right?

Over time, when you get to know your new work environment, that's when you can start thinking about staying at the company or maybe you'll find a better job that improves on what you feel is lacking. Your actual decision only comes later, once you've read the environment. And when youbread the environment, you want to take yourself out of the equation. You want to say:
"Okay, so I came to this company, I gave them my very best right from the beginning -- 110% -- so my decision to stay (or go) is not based on my employer reacting to me positively (or negatively) because of what I did, but my decision to stay or go is based on my employer's natural behaviour only".

To put it another way, if I do my work with a smile and kindness from day 1, it doesn't mean I'm 100% committed to the job. Just means I'm giving it a fair chance. If it doesn't work out, it won't be my fault.

CANCERIANS APPROACH RELATIONSHIPS IN A SIMILAR WAY...TADA!

The reason we are super-romantic from day 1 is because we want to give it a fair shot. We're not looking for a golfbuddy..we're looking for a relationship so OF COURSE we wanna cuddle on day 1 and do husband and wifey things on day 3. Why waste time pretending to coy schoolgirls? When we have a job to do we do it.

But remember this: just because we romance the buyer out of you, it doesn't mean that we want to be your boyfriend. We haven't decided yet, we don't even know you yet! And it takes us a long time to decided (generally).

This is what people don't understand, and they keep asking:

"Why did he disappear, it was going so well? Why did he change? Why is he ghosting me? Why is he moving too fast? Is he a player?"

No, he's looking for Love and he believes that the best way to find it, is to start off playing the part. That's how we like to get to know someone. If you don't like to cuddle, if you don't like nature, hiking, hide and seek (haha) I'd rather know on the first date so that I can move on instead of "having coffee" and have you *tell* me what you're like (most people don't even know what they're really like).


Thanks for your response!

Question, it sounds like cancers guys will play the part...but they might not actually mean it. Isn't that kind of fake and a lead on? Sorry if my question is too blunt!

I don't want to end up sleeping with the guy and then oh! he changes he mind.


It's definitely not easy to make money as a business owner. It requires a lot of sacrifice from your personal life.

Be prepared to:
- work long hours with no breaks like you were used to at a job
- be on-call if anything goes wrong
- be on-call for an undetermined amount of time if staff quits/gets sick
- slow business returns can be p a i n f u l and costly
- be patient and constantly improve your best every single day
- you will be jack/jill of all trades (fix things, marketing, cleaning person, you name it!)
- use your own savings to keep afloat, I'd suggest having at the very least 3 months to cover all your fixed costs. If you don't have savings, you'll need to secure a business loan which is a whole other can of worms to get qualified (depending on which country you live in)

As for the lonely thing, well all, I can say is my partner/co-worker is also Virgo and he often says he feels "empty".
Idk about relationships, but working very closely with a Virguy now. Realize that he cannot work with others! Gossips, control freak, and often makes sloppy errors. Also procrastinates, steals people's ideas and doesn't give credit, quite negative, and neurotic.

If this is any indication of how Virguys are like in relationships, count me out!
