Maybe it’s my Virgo Venus, but I think that love that does not prove useful is… Well, it’s kind of useless, isn’t it? I can see some people shaking their heads and thinking love suffices in and of itself. Perhaps it does. But for me, if I’m not proving helpful in some way to people I love, I feel like I’m failing them. Which bring us to the use of apostrophes.
Now, I’m not saying I’m an expert on the subject, but I think I know the basics. In any case, I’ve borrowed some information from this site. Here it is:
“The apostrophe has three uses:
1. To form possessives of nouns
2. To show the omission of letters
3. To indicate certain plurals of lowercase letters”
You should go through that site. But I don’t know how good it is. I was taught that if a proper noun ends with an “s,” its possessive form should end with only an apostrophe. This site says even the apostrophe+s is acceptable for possessives of proper nouns.
I think most people are okay with apostrophes. They just stumble a bit when it comes to possessive pronouns. Possessive pronouns do not need apostrophes. Here is a list of possessive pronouns:
That’s it for me. All done. I’ve written it here instead of telling you directly because of what they say about Venus in Virgo. It’s perceived as being critical. I heard someone say recently, “Perception is fact.” Imagine alienating where you wish to please and serve. No wonder Venus is considered to be in her detriment in Virgo.
Oh, in case you misunderstand and think I’m patronizing you, I haven’t mastered punctuation, either! Commas defeat me. I’ve received some specialized training in punctuation and you’d think I could comma like an expert, but no. Neptune’s square to my Virgo Mercury is too powerful, or maybe I’m too mentally lazy to apply myself. But whatever it is, I’m not perfect, either.
So, anyways, here it is. A little post on apostrophes, offered with love.
