Renée Simonsen (source: Iconic Focus)

As I was scrolling through my previously-published blog posts from this day, I realized that it was Renée Simonsen’s birthday. We were born just a few months apart, so I decided to search for some recent photos of the model just to see how she looks today. She’s still gorgeous, of course, even though she no longer has the face of a teenager.

Anyway, that got me to thinking about how pleased I am with my own appearance lately. Just a moment before I sat down to compose this post, I was staring at my own face in the mirror and complimenting myself on my complexion. I look good for an old guy!

Or do I? The sun is still opposing Neptune in my horoscope this morning, after all. I could just be overcome with self-delusion, but I don’t think so. I was feeling terrific about myself before this aspect perfected, and I’m feeling terrific about myself as the aspects separates.

With transiting Mars simultaneously conjoining my natal Chiron, I was afraid that I might undergo some sort of crisis of self-worth this week. That hasn’t happened at all. In fact, I’m feeling emboldened and eager to tell everyone in my orbit how great I’m doing.

Still, that leaves me wondering if this weekend’s full moon eclipse is going to reveal something to me that I didn’t know about myself: something that might have an impact upon my current mood, or maybe something that makes me realize that I’m simply seeing what I want to see at the moment.

I guess I’ll find out soon enough . . .
