Because Aaron said, before he went away. Your horoscope. It was a very lonely faith. At first, everyone but Mike and Aaron thought my judgment had been prejudiced by grief. I could see it in their eyes when they looked at me. But I went right on believing anyway. None of the official "records" seemed real to me.
They seemed like the dream, not you. Only what I knew inside was real; so I clung to that, no matter what anyone tried to make me believe. Every day, for the longest time, Mike and Jill and I walked over to St. Patrick's and said a prayer near the statue of Francis of Assisi, just outside the church, among the trees. Once, we left some roses there, and when we went back the next morning, they had miraclized, like the ones I gave you that time. After a while, I proved it wasn't true. I proved it medically and scientifically. My faith was rewarded, the way I used to tell you that faith always is - if you believe long enough and hard enough.
Ray Neff and his wife, Gus, who worked with me on the Lincoln research, helped me a lot with the proof I needed. But even proving astrology and my heart had been right all along didn't help me to find you. Maybe completing this book will do that, in some mysterious way.
I can't forget that the next-to-the-last-time I saw you - you were with Marc. Because of astrology's wisdom and for other reasons too I believe that was the symbol of an unexpected twin-joy ending to temporary shadows and confusion. For things are not always what they seem, and people are sometimes too willing to believe whatever they are told.
Linda Goodman's Love Signs Review
Time will tell. Faith bestows awesome miracles upon the faithful. This I know. I thought maybe I could let you know the way it is with me. So I'm using James Barrie's words to try to express what we feel. They begin on the next page. There's just this one more thing I wanted to tell you. Over and over since you disappeared, I keep dreaming the same dream.
About the time I ran away when I was a little girl Raphael's convent on Thirteenth Street, in Par- The music. Isn't that strange? F o r Sally. Barrie, for such a very special and loving cause. It seems a shame to have neglected her family all this time; yet we may be sure that Sally's mother and father do not blame us. If we had returned sooner to look at them with sorrowful sympathy, they would probably have cried, "Don't be silly! What do we matter? Do go back, and keep an eye on Sally. Even now, we are no more than servants.
Why on earth should Sally's bed be properly aired, seeing that she left home in such a thankless hurry? Would it not serve her jolly well right if she came back and found that her family was spending the weekend in the country? It would indeed be a moral lesson all children need. But if we contrived things this way, Sally's mother and father, her grandfather and grandma, her brothers and her sister, would never forgive us.
One thing I would like to do immensely, and that is to tell Sally's mother, in the way authors have, that her child is coming back, that indeed she will be here on Thursday week. That would spoil completely the surprise to which the angels and druids and Sally herself are so looking forward. They've all of them been planning it: her mother's rapture, her Dad's shout of joy, Bill's and Jill's and Michael's leap through the air to embrace her first, when what all of them should be preparing for is a good hiding. How delicious to spoil it, by breaking the news ahead of time, so that, when she enters grandly, her mother may not even offer her her mouth, and her Dad may exclaim pettishly, "Dash it all, here's that pesky girl again!
They would quite likely upbraid us, for depriving the angels and druids.. By depriving the angels and druids and Sally of ten minutes of delight. I had meant to say extraordinarily nice things about Sally's mother, but now I despise her, and not one of them will I say. She does not need to be told to have things ready, for she already has them ready.
Sally's bed is aired, and she seldom leaves the house, and observe, the window is even left open for her. For all the use we are to Sally's mother, we might go back to our own galaxy. However, as we are here, we may as well stay That is all we are, lookers-on. Nobody really wants us. So let us watch, and say jaggy things. Sally's dad is now living in Heathcliffe's old doghouse. When his daughter flew away, he felt in his bones that all the blame was his, that everyone had been wiser than he. Of course, he is a simple man, and extremely stubborn.
He has a noble sense of justice and the courage to do what seems right to him; and having thought the matter out with anxious care after Sally's flight, he went down on all fours and crawled into Heathcliffe's kennel, which is where he has stayed and remains to this day.
To all invitations to come out, he answers, so sadly, but very firmly, "No. This is the place for me. Let us look again at Sally's mother, a very sad-eyed woman. Now that we look at her more closely and remember the gaiety of the old days, all gone now, just because she has lost her babe, I find I won't be able to say nasty things about her after all. If she is too fond of her rubbishy children, she can't help it. Look at her in her chair, where she has fallen asleep.
The corner of her mouth, where one looks first, the corner Sally always kissed, is almost withered up. Her hand moves restlessly on her breast, as if she had a pain there. Suppose, to make her happy, we whisper to her in her sleep that her child is coming back. She is really within two miles of the window now, and flying strong, but all we need whisper is that she is on her way. It is a pity we did it, for she has started up, calling Sally's name, and there is no one in the room but Heathcliffe. When Thursday week came, Sally at first planned to tiptoe in and place her hands over her mother's eyes.
But then she realized that she must break the joyous news more gently. For great joy is akin to great sorrow, and can be quite dangerous to the heart. She finally decided to just slip into her bed, and be there when they all came in next morning, just as if she had never been away. And so, when mother and father and Bill and Jill and Michael came in next morning, they saw Sally there, sleeping like a princess in a faerie tale. She waited for their cry of joy, but it did not come. They saw her, but they did not believe she was there. You see, they had seen her there so often, in their dreams, that they all thought this was just the old dream, hanging around them still.
Sally did not understand this, and a cold fear fell upon her. Don't you know me? At last, the truth of the miracle exploded within them, and there could not have been a lovelier sight on earth. There was no one to see it but a few straggling angels and druids who had stayed behind to watch He had ecstasies innumerable that we can never know; yet he was looking through the window at the one joy he could not join. But they all knew he was there. Michael was certain he saw him grinning, and Jill thought she saw a copy of The New York Times tucked under his arm. There are really no words to describe it, at least none yet taught on this planet, but I am told, on good authority, that every single person in the room levitated..
And they flew about the room for many, many days. Later, they knew it had all truly happened, for they found, out on the street, beneath the window, a tattered and torn copy of the Times, with very small letters printed in ink at the very top of the page. Love Signs. Yet concerned men and women in all walks of Life, from geologists and ecologists to prophets and astrologers, persistently predict the possibility of approaching cataclysms, both man-made and natural, bringing the danger of annihilation before the critical next decade has passed on this waning planet, so fast losing light.
We have been warned, but few have heeded the warning. We have been called, but few have answered. For the Earth to wax again, clearly a miracle is needed. By learning to use the wisdom of the planets, our co-Creators' code to Universal Truth, we may each create a fragment of the rainbow-spectrum message of Peace on Earth to men There could be, I think, no greater prelude to a miracle so needed, perhaps approaching sooner than we guess, than to employ the art of ancient wise men to pave the way for his return with a new Star Quest for love For love alone has the power to bring peace at history's twilight hour to Earthlings of good will.
In the Year of Our Lord To All My Readers Love Signs contains a number of controversial concepts of a moral, philosophical and intellectual nature, in the areas of science and religion. To some of you, these concepts will be inspiring - to others, they will appear strange and startling - to still others they could be deeply disturbing. They are presented here as truth, and will be recognized as such by many of you - just as they may be viewed as otherwise by some. I've shared my personal discoveries of truth with you because I believe that any kind of search implies an obligation to exchange with others what has been found, in the interest of hastening the sunrise of harmony on Earth, the ultimate Peace.
However, I do not ask - nor do I even expect - any of you to regard my concepts as your truth, unless they should happen to agree with your own personal enlightenment and private convictions. Partial truth - the seeds of wisdom - can be found in many places. In primal instinct may partial truth be found. The seeds of wisdom are contained in all scriptures ever written. But real Truth can be found in one place only - in every man's and woman's communion with an eternal Source of hidden Knowledge within - which each individual must seek and find for himself or herself.
We may point out the path to others, but each must walk along that path alone - until every single "lost one" has made the whole journey - and all of us have finally reached the Light of full-born Wisdom at the end of the Way. Foreword Like Peter Pan's shadow, curiosity about astral compatibility follows the astrologer "second from the right and straight on till morning.
Is that why we fight so much? I've even found myself helpless in a dental chair, having a tooth extracted, while the attending doctor remarked, "Not that I believe in astrology, but what are my chances with a Capricorn woman? It's a fact. There's nothing mysterious about the oldest art and science in the world, unless you choose to call the miracles of love and tolerance that result from using it "mysterious. As for those familiar characters in Neverland, Peter Pan and Wendy, although I've used some of their remarks throughout this book to symbolize, at various times, certain characteristics of all twelve astrological signs, Peter's personal Natal Sun was in the Mutable Air Element of Gemini when he was created.
Oh, yes! Peter was a Sun Sign Gemini - even though I use particular quotes of his to symbolize other signs in the book, a Sun Sign Gemini he was, who desired never to grow up, searching for something he never quite found, forever destined to be sure only of his own shadow, never of another human being - until, we trust, through eventual enlightenment, he learned at last the lesson of love. Wendy was clearly a Cancerian - motherly, possessive, gentle and imaginative, trying out her wings in a flight of fancy under the Full Moon, as Moon Maidens often do.
No strong Sun Sign harmony between them, you see, so they quarreled now and then, and each heard a different drummer.
What Is Sun Sign, Moon Sign, Rising Sign And How Are They Different
Wendy ended up in the final chapter as nearly all Cancerians do, safe and secure. No matter how wistfully her heart longed to fly again, she chose home, marriage and children as her ultimate dreams; while Peter, like nearly all Geminis, continued his eternal search for a brighter rainbow, somewhere beyond It's worth all the time and trouble it takes to compare two horoscopes for compatibility, because when you find a trined, sextiled or conjuncted relationship between two Sun Signs - and also a trined, sextiled or conjuncted relationship between the mutual Sun and Moon Signs the signs transited by the Sun and the Moon at the time of both births - plus a positive interchange of the signs on the Ascendents with the Luminaries - love then takes on a deeper dimension.
All love is capable of energizing wishes into reality, but love between two people whose personal auras have thus harmoniously blended creates the kind of vibration poets write about, and can manifest marvelous magic. Wandering through the millions of couples on Earth who are attempting to achieve or have achieved satisfying contentment and fulfillment together and those who are still struggling through heavy sexual karmic testing - are those rare ones esoterically called "Soul Mates". The eyes have been rightly called "the windows of the soul. These are two who immediately sense the unalterable fact that they have been - are - and must always be One; even though they might have fought against their fate for centuries and struggled in vain to escape their linked destiny.
Almost from the first moment they meet and gaze upon each other, their spirits rush together in joyful recognition, ignoring all convention and custom, all social rules of behavior, driven by an inner knowing too overwhelming to be denied. Inexplicably, often without a word being spoken, they know that only through each other can they hope to find Wholeness - only when they're together can they both be Complete in every way.
Somehow, they feel Immortal, and they are. The solution to the problem of the "over-population" which rises to the mind as a result of such achievement by everyone on Earth must wait till a forthcoming book for a detailed discussion. Neither will I attempt to detail the origin and ultimate destiny of Twin Souls here, since I've done so in another forthcoming book, called Gooobers, to be published in the near future.
But there is so much burning curiosity concerning the subject of Soul Mates or Twin Souls, it bears some explanation here, however incomplete. A man and a woman who are Soul Mates hardly need to speak the words "I love you," knowing as surely as they do that they must belong to each other whether in this present incarnation lifetime - or due to karmic complications at the end of many more centuries. The words in the marriage ceremony "those which God hath joined together, let no man put asunder" refer to such as these. Yet this warning is unnecessary, simply symbolic ritual, for no man can break the tie between Twin Souls, not even themselves.
Nor can any energy in the Universe.
The Force that created them is all-powerful and indestructible. The bond may be weakened, their final union and consummation delayed, but they cannot be separated permanently. There can be no end to the kind of hap- The Superconscious or Supraconscious of each. This kind of instant magnetic attraction is often called "love at first sight," which is no accident of fate, but very real.
It's more than curious coincidence that Twin Souls, out of the whole huge world, should be drawn together at the appointed time. The crossing of their paths has been predestined on a Higher Level of Awareness. Certain spiritual energies are at work to bring about their meetings, as surely as the migration of birds and the return of comets are governed by a similar Universal Law.
Their coming-together is controlled by the workings of Karma, which is but the sum total of Causes set into motion in the Past - and these determine infallibly the conditions of the Present. When the time comes for Twin Souls to incarnate, they are sent to Earth, clothed in flesh again, the bodies being the Temples of the soul through particular Time-Energy Forces, at the moment in Earth Time when certain planetary configurations create the proper conditions.
These Time-Energy Forces are electro-magnetic in nature, yet more complex than this. None of us can control the eventual results of the Causes we've initiated or set into motion in our past lives, although we can control our re-actions to the results such past Causes bring into the present lifetime.
The "Free Will" to change these karmic events is possessed by the Higher Self, and we may attain such power by learning to tune into or communicate with the Higher Self Supraconscious. They are very respectful of your likes and dislikes, and focus on the things that have had the most success. Virgo is the sign of the virgin, and this aspect gives others the idea that they are very selective.
They are not as picky as they appear. In fact, they love imperfections and have the best time with a partner who needs care. Their fantasies often feature the downtrodden and inexperienced. Voyeurism is especially appealing to these lovers. We are giving Virgo a little more attention than other signs simply because we feel this sign has been misunderstood on the topic of sex. In fact, they want to please and to be savvy in the lovemaking arena. Beautifully written, over pages.

Even though Linda Goodman could provide others with insight about their futures and personalities, she was incredibly secretive about her own life. Shrouded in eccentricities, difficulties and mystery, she most often would give out April 9th as her birthday , but refused to confirm a time or even a year. The most frequently noted year in regard to her birth is Why did she hide her own birth date and time from the public? To prevent others from being able to reveal her chart, of course. Quite a few sources cite April 10th, not 9th, as Goodman's birthday. Astro Theme has constructed a birth chart for Linda Goodman based on April 10, According to the chart, she was an attention seeker, hungry to express her thoughts, assertive, intuitive, and self-confident.
Were they right? Judging by her career, it seems so. Linda Goodman's take on astrology wasn't strictly relegated to newspapers. She wrote several books covering all the major facets of astrology, and all have received excellent ratings. Sun Signs set the tone for the success of all her other books.
