VIRGO: April 23-29

In his unpublished book The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, John Koenig coins new words that convey experiences our language hasn’t accounted for. One that may apply to you soon is “trumspringa,” which he defines as “the temptation to step off your career track and become a shepherd in the mountains, following your flock between pastures with a sheepdog and a rifle, watching storms at dusk from the doorway of a small cabin.” To be overtaken by trumspringa doesn’t necessarily mean you literally run away to be a shepherd. Give yourself the luxury of considering such wild possibilities; it may be a healing release allowing you to be at peace with the life you live.
