Always a fan of Rob Brezsny's Free Will Astrology:




SACRED ADVERTISEMENT
Even if your heart's not exactly shattered at the moment, it has no doubt been so at some time in the past. I invite you to feel a wave of sadness about your suffering, then move on to this possibility: that having a broken heart is one of the best things that can happen to you.

Why? Because it strengthens your humility, which makes you smarter. It demonstrates to you that you have a tremendous capacity for deep feelings -- far more than you're normally aware of. It breaks down defense mechanisms that have desensitized you to the world's secret beauty. It may also inspire you to treat other people's hearts with greater care, making it more likely that you'll be able to create intelligent intimacy in the future.

From Rob Brezsny's book "PRONOIA Is the Antidote for Paranoia: How the Whole World Is Conspiring to Shower You with Blessings." Need this for my birthday.
