Relate to yourself through your journal
"To write spiritually is to engage in a search for authentic language. You’ll find your truth by writing your way to it."
-- Patrice Vecchione
Who would allow you to totally ignore, abuse, laugh with, swear at, shed tears on, get angry at and be totally honest with him/her? Your journal does.
Your journal is an unconditional friend. It does not reject, manipulate, judge, laugh at or ridicule you. It’s always there for you. So be honest with your best friend and it will help you discover who you are.
"The positive thing about writing is that you connect with yourself in the deepest way, and that's heaven. You get a chance to know who you are, to know what you think. You begin to have a relationship with your mind."
-- Natalie Goldberg
Leo (July 23 — Aug. 22)
The more you discuss and debate a matter, the more you risk entrenching yourself in an indefensible opinion. For the time being, be noncommittal and wait for someone else to make the first move.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 — Nov. 22)
Look one way and all you see gives you reason to worry. Look the other way and your heart fills with hope and gratitude. Focus your attention on the latter.
Gemini (May 21 — June 21)
There is something you need to keep at bay. It is not a threat from any item or person. It is more a mood that you cannot and should not tolerate. It's attracting trouble that could be easily avoided.
Pisces (Feb. 20 — March 20)
Fate has a way of pushing us down any direction it chooses. This, however, may not always be one that we wish to take. Your current apprehension about the future will be dispelled as some encouraging news brightens up your prospects.

Austrian Man Sexually Abused Daughter, Held Her In Dungeon For 24 Years
April 28, 2008
According to reports, an elderly Austrian, 73-year old Josef Fritzl has admitted to building a dungeon in his cellar and locking his daughter and her children in it for a period of 24 years. He has yet to admit to incest, but has admitted to abusing her.London (dbTechno) - According to reports, an elderly Austrian, 73-year old Josef Fritzl has admitted to building a dungeon in his cellar and locking his daughter and her children in it for a period of 24 years. He has yet to admit to incest, but has admitted to abusing her.
Fritzl is scheduled to appear before an investigating magistrate on Monday evening. He was arrested on Saturday.
He has admitted to building the dungeon and to holding his daughter and three children in it.
According to reports, Elisabeth Fritzl, his daughter, was drugged by the father back in August 1984. Ever since then, she has been kept captive in the dungeon.
While in the dungeon, she gave birth to seven children, with one of them being a twin and dying.
The six children are made up of three boys and three girls, aged between 5-years old and 20-years old.
Three of the children have been held captive in the dungeon as well, with one of the 19-year old children seeing light for the first time when Josef Fritzl was arrested.
He has yet to admit to incest, as DNA tests are being carried out to see if he is actually the father of the six surviving children.
The seventh child who died, and was a twin, was apparently burned by Fritzl following his or her death.
The other three children went to school as normal, without ever knowing their mother and three other children were trapped in a dungeon in the cellar.
The search is now on for the wife of Fritzl, as Elisabeth Fritzl stated that her mother knew of the sexual abuse.
