Normally I don't put much stock in horoscopes. Sure, they're fun to read, and we're always looking out for connections to things that are already happening in our lives, but the horoscope in today's San Francisco Chronicle was just too spot-on to ignore.
Here's my horoscope for the year in full.
Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)
This past year saw you thrust into the limelight in at least one unexpected manner. Now, as the world turns, your own private drama expands even further. Expect a dream to literally come true in 2010 as you move to solidify last year's gains. A friend (or friends) will be involved in a major way. In other words, it's one of those "not what you know but who" things. (Get out your address book.) What you do on Feb. 13 has the power to change your life forever. Come July 25, you'll enjoy celebrating yourself. You deserve it!There's a lot of stuff in here that doesn't apply to my plans for 2010 so we'll just conveniently ignore that and focus on what does.
1. "Expect a dream to literally come true in 2010 as you move to solidify last year's gains."
My dream that is slated to come true this year is finally being able to work in Japan. As I've talked about here before, I've been working towards this dream since the day I came back from my first trip to Japan in 2004. And last year's gains? That would be graduating college with a BA, a necessity for getting a work visa in Japan.
2. "What you do on Feb. 13 has the power to change your life forever."
Assuming I'm granted a job interview with the JET Program, the program to which I applied last year, it will be in February. Perhaps even... February 13?
3. "Come July 25, you'll enjoy celebrating yourself. You deserve it!"
Should I get the job, I'll be leaving on August 1 for Japan, which would put my going away party right around July 25. Uncanny!
