I have never asked anyone, "What's your sign?" It just so happens that my horoscope appears in the feed of my news home page. Yesterday it advised, "It's a good day to check in with parents, grandparents, and other bearers of family tradition. It could also be a good opportunity to track down genealogical information or reconnect with lost relatives." It just so happens we're in the final days of chaos leading up to my youngest daughter's wedding and doing the seating chart. Rationalizing the horoscope to what is happening at that moment in time was easy, since I did need to check with some of my long-distance relatives on where they would (or would not) like to sit for dinner. Still, it is also really good advice for anyone at any time! Any day is a good day to check in with your loved ones to chat about how they're doing and bring up a memory or two. Perhaps you'll learn something you didn't know about a new hobby or passion that is an important part of their life to be noted during a time of remembrance. It's a lot harder to learn these things if they become ill or when you're grieving a loss.
