ARIES (March 21-April 19):

I’m a big fan of facing your problems head-on and dealing forthrightly with your pain. But what if that approach isn’t always best?

Renowned psychologist Richard Lazarus said he wanted to “challenge the view that psychological health demands full realism.” He believed that some sick people get healthy faster by refusing to admit how serious their problems are. To those in stressful situations, he recommended that they could reduce their anxiety by describing their predicament in a matter-of-fact way.

“Avoiding what is painful, to a great extent, seems to serve a positive function,” he concluded. Although I’m not sure this strategy is universally applicable, I do recommend it for you right now, Aries.

Actually, you want to know something really weird? I can't think of a single thing in my life that is painful, right now. This is just one of those moments when the endorphins are working overtime. Anyone who has read more than five lines of this blog will know how long THIS is likely to last, but what the hell? I plan to enjoy the ups till the downs do show up...
