Pisces (Feb 19-March 20): I came across an interesting meditation in a New Yorker analysis of the film The Assassination of Richard Nixon. Describing the main character, Sam Byck, played by Sean Penn, the reviewed ovserved that "Sam wants to be treated as an individual. But, living in a competitive and utilitarian society, he doesn't have sufficient talent to be treated as an individual." Do you agree with this statement, Pisces? Is it your belief that the more talented a person is, the more deserving he or she is of being treated as an individual? Think it through thoroughly. In the coming week, you'll be dealing with variations on this theme, and how you respond could have a big impact on your ability to express your own talents.
I'd never really thought of it that way. It's immodest, but that's ok, 'cause I've got an ego that could enclose the sun: I've got talent. I am *damned* good at what I do. *DAMNED* good. So it's not a problem most of the time. However, because of that ego, I /do/ frequently get irritated when I'm /not/ treated as an individual, when I don't get special treatment just Because I Should.
Hrm. Something to think about.
