Mark Twain - Astrology Tip Of The Week

   I don’t know about you, but I LOVE to read... and can absolutely disappear into a book.
 
   Even if it’s as long as the bible.
 
   When this happens, friends and family and neighbors and clients alike all say,
 
   "Where the heck is Carol? Why is she not answering any email? Why is she avoiding all calls? Why is she recycling her newsletters and not writing anything new?"
(Okay... I admit it!)
 
   The last time this happened, I was BURIED in the oh-so-amazing, recently released autobiography of Mark Twain. (It's 736 pages - and it's only Volume 1 of 3!)
 
   You know - the guy who wrote "Tom Sawyer" and "Huckleberry Finn" - books we were all forced to read in grade school, and didn't appreciate for the MASTERPIECES of social commentary and literature they were.
 
   Well, I can barely remember those books, but his autobiography is amazing... because his life was so incredible.
 
   And now I can't wait to get my hands on everything else he's ever written.
 
   I just LOVE this guy...
 
   Maybe it's because, among his many famous pithy quotes, he said this:
 
   "If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat."
 
   And maybe it was because he was a devoted husband and family man, with a long marriage as wonderful as everything else about him...
 
   (What can I say - I'm a sucker for a man who worships his wife... It's my favorite thing about the man I live with! :))
 
   It seems I'm not alone in loving Mark Twain.
 
   Mark Twain, born Samuel Clemens, was the most famous, most celebrated, wealthiest author in his day.
 
   Not only that, he was essentially the first stand-up comedian, as beloved for his hilarious live readings (which he performed all over the world) as he was for his books.
 
   And now, 103 years after his death, he's as famous and renowned as ever.
 
   In fact, just a couple of years ago he was quoted on the back of Tina Fey's #1 best-selling memoir, Bossypants, giving it a rave review. (Of course that was a joke... though he WOULD have loved it if he were still alive.)
 
   That same year the U.S. Postal Service issued a new Mark Twain postage stamp.
 
   So why was he so special, so talented, so blessed? And why is his voice and message so lasting?
 
   Let's go to the astrological vault, shall we?
 
THE STARS REVEAL THE NATURE OF MARK TWAIN - AND HIS AMAZING DESTINY
 
   According to the calculations of Vedic astrology (which differ from those of Western astrology by almost an entire sign) Twain was born with the rising sign of Libra, the Sun sign of Scorpio, and the Moon sign of Pisces.
