These fit nicely considering that I leave in 28 days and I’m wicked nervous…!!!

Virgo (Aug. 23â€“Sept. 22)
Standing in the path of a speeding train goes against all your best instincts and logic. But what if you knew that the train was about to derail? What if you also suspected that you might have the power to stop it, instead of simply being crushed and killed? You’d consider taking that risk then. In fact, I have a hard time believing that you wouldn’t give it a go, even if it meant potential death. Luckily, the kinds of sacrifices likely to be demanded of you this week won’t be so dramatic and final. But neither will they be easy. However, as you consider them, remember my runaway-train scenario and this question: What is what you may have to give up, when weighed against all that you might save?
Editors at the prestigious UK medical journal Lancet have called for the legalization of LSD and other psychedelic drugs. They’re not envisioning a thousand totally buzzed freaks dancing deliriously at an outdoor festival, however. Rather, they want to make it possible for researchers to carefully explore the therapeutic benefits of altering consciousness. “The blanket ban on psychedelic drugs continues to hinder safe and controlled investigation of their potential benefits,” they said. Be inspired by their example, Virgo. What taboo is it high time for you to break in a discerning way? What inhibition no longer serves you, even though at one time it might have kept you safe and sane? What conventional wisdom based on fear has infected you, preventing you from experimenting with exciting possibilities?
