Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
In pledging Greek letter organizations, especially during the late 20th century, we would talk about “skating.” It mostly has a negative connotation for someone who isn’t giving his or her all in the pledging process or who somehow was getting off easier than others. On the other hand, though, I question the sanity of the pledge who goes gung-ho to do everything hard or who wears the extra abuse he or she re-ceives from others as a badge of honor or respect. The same goes for life, except with some appreciable differences. First, skating could be an act of grace or luck (take your pick) and giving your all doesn’t mean giving away your good sense.  Don’t let guilt get the best of you in order to prove yourself to somebody. Life isn’t necessarily hazing you right now and catching a break isn’t skating.
