This week, Rob tells the Gemini:

In her song "Deeper Well," Emmylou Harris says she's "looking for the water from a deeper well." Make that your assignment, Gemini. And if you're feeling brave, extend your search to an even more challenging quest: what Harris refers to as searching for a "holier grail." According to my reading of the omens, your biggest, brightest dream isn't as big and bright as it could be. Raise your standards.

I often check my moon sign, Leo, as well. Given that what I've been dreaming of lately involves stability and starting a family with rightkindofme, my moon sign's horoscope is particularly ominous this week:

"Raising kids is like making pancakes," muses Brian Copeland in his show Not a Genuine Black Man. "You always mess up the first one." A similar idea might apply to a certain multi-pronged project you've been working on, Leo. I'm not saying you should abandon or throw away your initial effort. On the contrary, like rookie parents whose inexperience has slightly tweaked their first-born, you should be thorough in trying to undo your mistakes. But I also suggest that you immediately get started on the next creation in the series, being sure you've learned all you can from the consequences of your earlier ignorance.

So, um... Raise my sights in terms of raising kids, but expect to mess the first one up?

That's not necessarily true. I'm a first-born child, and I'm perfect!

Or, um, maybe there are better examples...

Yep, first-born here as well. Still not perfect.

I'm first-born as well. I've heard the idea that parents are most likely to mess the first one up before... Something like "the first child is when parents have the strongest (wrong) principles, and the energy to carry them out."

dunno about kids, but I always do mess up the first pancake. Sometimes the second one too :)
