ARIES (March 21-April 19): The poet and philosopher Aries Friedrich HÃ¶lderlin (1770-1843) has had its ups and downs. He was one of Germany’s greatest poets and philosophers, but he also endured more emotional distress than most people. His biographer wrote: âSometimes this genius darkens and sinks into the bitter well of his heart, but most of the time his doomsday star shines wonderfully. You may have flirted with a milder version of a “bitter heart well,” Aries. But I foresee that you will soon return to a phase where your star shines wonderfully – and without the “apocalyptic” hue that HÃ¶lderlin harbored.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Author David Foster Wallace was sad at how much the intense activity of our mind can be shared with others. Much of what goes on inside us seems impossible to express. Or if it can be expressed, few of our listeners are receptive or able to fully understand it. That’s the bad news, Taurus. But here’s the good news: In the coming weeks, I think you will experience this sad issue a lot less than usual. I guess you’ll be especially good at articulating your lush truth and have a more receptive audience for it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): âI never resist temptation,â said playwright George Bernard Shaw. Why did he dare to make such a far-fetched statement? âBecause I have found that the things that are bad for me don’t tempt me,â he said. I suggest that you aspire to embody his attitude over the next eight weeks, Gemini. Make it your aspiration to cultivate a mindset that you will only be tempted to engage in with healthy, educational, and inspiring influences. You can do it! I know you can!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): While still a teenager, cancerous cowboy Slim Pickens (1919–1983) competed in the rodeo, a sporting event in which brave athletes compete against aggressive broncos and bulls . When America entered World War II, Pickens went to a recruiting office to enroll in the military. Asked about his profession, Pickens replied “rodeo”. The clerk misheard and wrote âradioâ instead. Pickens was posted to an Armed Forces radio station in the American Midwest, where he spent the entire war. It was a safe and secure place for him. I foresee a lucky mistake like this in your near future, Cancer. Maybe more than a lucky mistake. To be fowarding something.
LEO (July 23-August 22): To create your horoscope, I borrowed ideas from four famous Lions. They all meet your current astrological needs. First of all, here is the author of Lion, PL Travers: “I am more and more convinced that the great treasure to be possessed is the unknown.” Second, here is Leo author Sue Monk Kidd: “There is no place as wide awake and alive as the edge of becoming.” Third, the Lion poet Philip Larkin: âOriginality is being different from yourself, not from others. Finally, Leo author Susan Cheever: “There is nothing like waiting too long.”
VIRGIN (August 23-September 22): I encourage you to take the perspective expressed by spiritual author Ann Voskamp. She wrote: “I want to see the beauty. In the ugly, in the sink, in the suffering, in the everyday, the moments before sleeping.” I understand that taking this mission seriously could be a difficult exercise. Most of us are quick to spot flaws and horror, but few have been trained to pay attention to elegance, splendor, and wonder. Are you ready to try this approach? Experience it. Treat it as an opportunity to reprogram your perceptual faculties. In three weeks time, your eyes and ears could be tuned in to the wonders they had previously missed.
BALANCE (September 23-October 22): Educator and anthropologist Libran Johnnetta Cole wrote: âThe first sign of an educated person is that they ask more questions than they answer. I agree and I would also say this: A primary attribute of an intelligent and eager to learn person is that they ask more questions than they answer. I encourage you to be like this over the coming weeks, Libra. According to my astrological estimate, you are supposed to boost your intelligence and arouse your curiosity. A great way to meet your dates with fate will be to have fun imagining interesting questions.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21): “Some people get so adept at reading between the lines that they don’t read the lines,” wrote author Margaret Millar. This is not a common problem for you Scorpios. You’re an expert at reading between the lines, but that doesn’t make you miss the simple facts. Better than any other zodiac sign, you are good at seeing both the secret and the obvious. Given the astrological omens that will be active for you for the remainder of 2021, I suspect your skill will be a virtual superpower. And even more than usual, the people in your life will benefit from your ability to name the truth.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): Storyteller and mythologist Michael Meade believes that each of us has an inner indigenous person – a part of our psyche that can love and learn from nature, that is inclined to revere and commune with the ancestors, who seek holiness in the familiar delights of the earth. The coming weeks will be a good time to cultivate your relationship with your inner native. What other experiences might be available to you as you align your personal rhythms with the rhythms of the earth? What joys might emerge as you strive to connect on deeper levels with animals, plants, and natural forces?
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): Capricorn novelist Haruki Murakami writes, âI’ve always been hungry for love. I could not any more. Just one time. Most of us feel this desire, although few of us admit it. But I will urge you to place this desire before your conscience over the next two weeks. I will encourage you to treat your desire for maximum love as a sacred force, a virtue to be nurtured and of which you are proud. I’ll even suggest you let people know that’s what you want. It may not result in total satisfaction of desire, but who knows? Maybe he will be. If there will be a time when such a fulfillment could happen, it will be soon.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): An article published in the journal Scientific American stated, âMost people don’t know when to stop talking. Conversations between strangers and friends usually last too long. Barely 2% of all dialogues end when both parties want them to. That’s the bad news, Aquarius. The good news is that in the coming weeks, your sensitivity to this subject will be more acute than usual. As a result, your speech will be more concise and effective, more persuasive, more interesting and more influential. Take advantage of this subtle super power! (More info: tinyurl.com/WhenToStop)
PISCES (February 19-March 20): Since 1996, Ira Glass has produced the acclaimed radio series This American Life. In 2013, as a reward for his excellence, he was offered an annual salary increase from $ 170,000 to $ 278,000. He accepted it for a year, but then asked that it be lowered to $ 146,000. He called the sharp pay rise “improper”. What?! I appreciate her modesty, but I disapprove of her. I always encourage Pisces like Ira Glass to embrace the fullness of their worth and be aggressive in collecting any rewards that are offered to them. So I’m inclined, especially at this time, to urge you NOT to be like Glass. Please collect all the congratulations, benefits and blessings you deserve.
