AQUARIUS (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
Marketing professionals know how to design great labels. They convince manufacturers to spend more on their packaging than on their products. The sales figures back them up. If, though, you are truly discerning, the world's fascination with superficiality can be very aggravating. Look now, at how those around you are being tricked into accepting something they ought to reject. Look too, at how much time you are wasting with a situation which is full of sparkle... but lacking in substance.
But he just doesn't understand how hard it is for a Redneck to resist anything that sparkles. I adore sparkle. I am completely mesmerized by sparkle. Is that so bad? Can you not take away some benefit from admiring the sparkle and enjoying how beautiful it is? That's why Rednecks love sparkly things. We take the time to enjoy that beauty without worrying if something has 'substance.' Isn't beauty its own kind of substance? I just can't accept that it is a waste of time to enjoy the sparkle. Sorry, Mr. Cainer, but sometimes the sparkle itself is substance enough.
