If a horoscope doesn’t make sense one treats it lightly, but if it matches one’s life then it assumes a significance that one credits to forces larger and outside the self. It makes no difference if one disbelieves it. Desire is an addiction, like smoking cigarettes, that one finds good reasons for indulging in. If one talks of Volkswagen bugs, one sees them everywhere. At least one used to see them everywhere, but these things don’t last forever; Ezra Pound said, “Only emotion endures.” If a convicted murderer stubbornly maintains his innocence even up to his death, then the evidence is less important. If one loves, passionately, then that love is true.
