I've Been Promised a Miracle

I’ve Been Promised a Miracle

Here’s my horoscope from the Columbus Dispatch
on October 30, 2011:

 Leo (July 23-Aug.22):  Someone recognizes your deep, soulful desire, even though you never said out loud what it is.  This is no small coincidence; it’s a sign of an unfolding miracle.

I don’t read my horoscope every day, but find that it sometimes hits the mark or rings true in a particular way; occasionally it stops me in my tracks.  The idea that someone understands my deep unstated, soulful desire and that this is a sign of an unfolding miracle was an attention grabber. 

Not only have I never said out loud what my deep, soulful desire is, I’m not even sure I know.  Is my deepest desire to make a difference in the world, to write a book, to live and love in an ethical, selfless way or to do something no one has ever done before?  And who is this person who recognizes this desire within me?

Putting that aside, I’m wondering even more about the unfolding miracle.  On Monday, a day after the horoscope, there was a downpour at 5:00 p.m., but the strange thing was that the rain only fell in the front of our house.  The back yard was totally sunny and dry with a brilliant rainbow arching across the sky.  This occurred on Halloween which only added to the awe-inspiring moment. 

I’ve always considered rainbows to be a miracle of sorts – certainly one of nature’s most profound and glorious gifts.  But was there a reason the rainbow occurred on the day after my horoscope?

So, here’s my takeaway.  My life is an unfolding miracle, as is yours.  My deepest, soulful desires are also unfolding as I continue to learn more about myself each day.  If someone out there recognizes that in me and wants to help me along my path, then I guess that’s a bonus.  I don’t plan to do anything different over the next few weeks, except possibly be more alert to magical rainbows and interesting horoscopes.  

Because I do believe in miracles and I have been promised.


  1. A wonderful horoscope that will lead you towards a greater appreciation of everything and so to the fulfillment of the horoscope! Enjoy the trip :-)

  2. I will definitely enjoy the trip. Sometimes we just need a remember to take notice of the things that are right in front of us.

  3. A rainbow is God's promise of no more Noah's Ark type floods, I think.

    Lots of miracles everyday. Thank you for sharing so much of your life journey with us. Libby
