Here’s wishing you a very happy and prosperous new year!
As we begin another new year, I frequently like to reflect on what a lucky guy I am! I’m blessed with a great family, wonderfully good health, many good friends, being a full-time RVer of 16 years and have a delightful life-partner. I’m not a particular believer in astrology. However when Mary and I met in 2008, I was curious what the stars had to say about our (at that time) potential relationship.
Here’s what it had to say. I’m most pleased to tell you that it very accurately describes our current relationship. How lucky we are! She’s a Libra and I’m a Sagittarius.

Libra & Sagittarius
The merging of Libra and Sagittarius can be paradise found for both Signs; this combination is a harmonious one, to say the least. Signs that are two positions apart in the Zodiac tend to have a very deep, special connection and understanding of one another. Sagittarius, the journeyer, is constantly in search of wisdom. Libra has a mind keen for art, beauty and aesthetics; Libra makes a stimulating companion for Sagittarius on their travels and adds much to Sagittarius’s experience. The relationship always feels new because these two keep it exciting — and yet their natural understanding of one another makes them feel like intimates from the beginning. Together they will reach new horizons in love and in life.
Libra and Sagittarius make great friends as well as lovers. They share a certain fresh-faced optimism in the world; they’re both enthusiastic about finding truth and beauty in their experiences. Problems rarely occur. Occasionally Sagittarius may hurt sensitive Libra’s feelings by speaking without thinking; conversely, Libra can sometimes be a bit too emotionally controlling for Sagittarius. Since Libra is a born diplomat who abhors conflict, they’ll be able to smooth over any ruffled feathers. These two have the gift of forgiving and forgetting quickly.
Libra is ruled by Venus (Love) and Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter (Luck and Philosophy). Venus’s femininity and Jupiter’s masculinity make these Signs compatible and balanced. Sagittarius is constantly on a quest for knowledge of the big things — the truth, the meaning of life and death — and whenever Libra comes up with a new idea (as they are wont to do) Sagittarius is eager to go along with their partner and become familiar with this new concept.
Libra is an Air Sign and Sagittarius is a Fire Sign. This partnership is full of kinetic energy. As air spreads fire and makes it grow exponentially, this relationship is heated and ardorous. Sagittarius thinks they’re steering the rudder, but Libra controls the flow of events with a quieter hand. These two are energetic in the extreme and can run together far and wide. The relationship runs most smoothly when Sagittarius can feel they have plenty of freedom and independence within the relationship.
Libra is a Cardinal Sign and Sagittarius is a Mutable Sign. Libra is an initiator; they think up new ideas and new places to go — but can change their minds at a moment’s notice. Sagittarius is flexible and adaptable, amenable to any changes Libra wants to make in plans.
What’s the best aspect of an Libra-Sagittarius relationship? Their mutual interest in cultivating knowledge and utilizing intellect. They are well-matched and will go far together, both emotionally and geographically!
And here we are…the lucky couple!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, SWEETHEART!
In other news…
Did you stay up and party hearty and welcome in the New Year? Not me. I could have went to my local Moose Lodge full of strangers with lots of noise and smoke. Instead I watched part of an old John Travolta movie and hit the sack around my normal usual time…8:30 PM. I knew the New Year had arrived when I heard a few fireworks set off by some locals. I muttered “Happy New Year” mostly still asleep. I feel great this morning!
The “cold snap” continues here. Average temps are a high of 69 and low of 43. Yesterday the high was 44 and last night the low was 25! It’s supposed to slowly start warming up in the next few days.
