Moon Child Here In Love With Ms Balfour,
This review is from: Black Love Signs : An Astrological Guide to Passion, Romance and Relationships for African Americans (aka Sexy Black Sun Signs: An Astrological Guide to Love and Romance for African-Americans) (Paperback)
I was initially introduced to "Black Love Signs" on my 25th birthday as I called myself escaping to another city from a recent, confusing heartbreak. As my cousin allowed me to thumb through his copy, I became mesmorized and relieved. The guy I was dating was a Scorpio man, and though I am a Cancer woman and we were compatible, I ended up with a broken heart. But what was killing me the most was I didn't know why it ended and so suddenly!It had only been a month long liason. So as I read about the Scorpio man, I saw what I was dealing with unfolding before my eyes word by word. I was already mind blown and then I reached two life altering sentences which stated, 'If you're left holding the bag, without so much as a word of warning, it may be a relief to you and a blessing in disguise. In short, you ain't gettin' out of this relationship until he decides it's over...' Though the pain remained, it was lessened. I realized that in this case the situation was beyond me and that his actions were totally in his nature. At this point I was hooked, so I began to read my true love's sign, Virgo man. This truly took my breath away even moreso. Not only were we compatible, we are a true match! I was reading validity in black and white. Reading our signs matched up against each other made my stomach tingle like a child waiting to open gifts on Christmas Eve. My inquisitive hunger was fed indeed. So to further solidify this, I wrote him and gave him an outline of the Virgos and the Virgo man. He returned a letter to me stating that I had to have added to what I said the book was saying or he knows the author personally. He said that it was all too true to have all come from this book. I did not vary from Thelma's words. And then it hit me! Deep in my heart I know this Virgo man is my soul mate, but I have to wait for him to return to me from his unjust incarceration. All this time that he has been away I was falling into unfullfilling off-the-beaten path realtionships. After licking many, many wounds I now see that the solution for me is to exercise patience and to avoid my anxious nature that kept me in these repetitive heartbreaks. This book was the revelation I needed at a perfect time in my life. Since my eye opening experience, I have been in everyone's face about this book. It has been mind blowing to all of them (with the exception of two or three closed minded individuals). This book has become a guide to understanding past and current relationships and in some cases future ones that may or may not be depending on their sign. I would never meet another man without asking him his birthday and/or sign. This book has really brought to light the notion that people are who they are and there is nothing you can do about it. It's just a matter of, if who they are is what I'm willing to allow in my life. This book is a life changing winner and Thelma has me as a deovted fan forever.
