This past July I celebrated the 13th anniversary of my 29th birthday.

Somehow I just cannot believe I really am older than 29.  Sheesh!

    I'm one of these crazy cusp people. I'm a libra, but I'm a day or two away from being a Scorpio. It has really led to quite an identity crisis when reading horoscopes. So I try to avoid them. It has been a challenge.  ;D

    Reading these posts reminds me that Robert Heinlein had a line in Stranger in a Strange Land that "there was never a girl born who ever grew older than eighteen in her heart."  I always thought that was a bit young; maybe 25 or 30; and I don't believe it should be limited to women...but our self image seems to definitely lock in at a certain point...

    Then sing, ye Birds, sing, sing a joyous song!
    And let the young Lambs bound
    As to the tabor's sound!
    We in thought will join your throng,
    Ye that pipe and ye that play,
    Ye that through your hearts today
    Feel the gladness of the May!
    What though the radiance which was once so bright
    Be now forever taken from my sight,
    Though nothing can bring back the hour
    Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
    We will grieve not, rather find
    Strength in what remains behind;

    55 and retiring in 6 months. :-)

    Hurray for retiring!  More time to read Kindle!

    Thank you. It just won't get here fast enough.  I prefer to read late in the evening, but if forced will read any time I get a spare minute or two. Once retired I can read till the wee hours of the morning and not worry about having to get up at 4am to work. *whew* That will be a day for celebration...I think I'll buy an e-book. :-)

    48 and officially an Aries although I swear my Mom lied about when I was supposed to be born because my horoscope never has anything remotely in common with me.

    Do you ever look at other people your age and think "boy do they look old?" I constantly reassure my hubby that he does not look as old as his classmates. He's blessed with a young face and looks at least 10 years younger than everyone he went to school with.

    And here we have another Libra! Turned 53 on October 11. Both me and the hubby are technology junkies and thanks to the Kindle, I get to combine my love of reading with my "habit." Oh, and I got to retire early, so LOTS of time to read!

    Not ever getting deeper into astrology than to read the daily horrorscope in the paper, I don't know what that means (scorpio cusp)!  And to keep it on topic, you're just a baby, LOL!

    A cusp is someone who's only a day or two away from being a different sign. Like, I'm a Libra, Scorpio cusp, so I was born a day before the beginning of the Scorpio cycle. Jen's a Sagittarius, Scorpio cusp, which means she's a day or so after the end of the Scorpio cycle. People born on cusps tend to very wildly from what their horoscope says they should do or be.
