The Opt-Out Option: Resistance & A Feminist “House Cleaning” of the Soul’s Chametz

This is the last sentence of my horoscope for the week of April 3, 2014:

“You need to be free of the past, free of fearful influences, and free of the self you’re in the process of outgrowing.”

I’m thinking about this sentence as many around me observe Passover, as I opt out of it for the second year in a row, doing a thing that feels razor-sharp-right for me, and also confusing and dangerous. (More than one thing can be true at a time; let’s remember this always.)
