The Fool (source: Wikipedia)

I used to own an astrology book called “Moon Signs” by Sasha Fenton. I believe that’s where I read the quote that I posted above, describing my Capricorn sun/Cancer moon combination. It stuck with me all this time because it’s true. I’ve never read a more accurate assessment of the essence of my character.

Lately, I’ve been trying to not feed the trolls on Twitter and other social media sites because getting in arguments with fools is the most useless pastime known to man. I don’t suffer fools gladly, and I don’t engage with them because there is no point in trying to change the minds of people whose minds are already made up.

Nevertheless, I was just looking at my own horoscope for the week, and I noticed that Mercury will conjoin my ascendant at the same time as the new moon in Virgo arrives in my eleventh house. So, not only will my critical abilities be highlighted, but I’ll also be more confident than ever in my superior intellect. Hooray! I’m going to be insufferable!

I do know that I can be a snob, so this comes as no surprise. I also know that I’m a clever guy. Still, I work hard to avoid being a critic of anything and everything because there is nothing I find more loathsome than people who complain about how stupid everyone else is. There may have been a time in my life when I was that guy, but that was a long time ago.

So, for this upcoming new moon cycle, I’m going to resolve to back away from the sort of behavior that would have me engaging with fools. Do I need to correct the grammatical errors in their Tweets? Do I need to point out the veracity of their Facebook posts? Do I need to tell them to stop spamming the Instagram feeds of people who actually do have some influence over popular culture? No, I don’t!

I’ve got nothing to prove to random strangers on social media sites. People who come to my blog, on the other hand, can simply read through a few posts to see for themselves that I’m no fool. They can pick up my 105,000-word, self-edited book to see that I know a thing or two about fashion and astrology. I might clown around on this blog, but I’m no clown.

In the words of Mark Twain, “Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.” I’m going to resolve to make that my mantra for the next few weeks.

Do you have a resolution you need to make for this upcoming new moon cycle? Let me know in the comments section or on one of my social media pages.
