RAM (March 21-April 19): Poet Jennifer Willoughby writes, “I’m so busy. I practice my new hobby of watching myself become someone else. There is so much violence in the reconstruction. Every minute is macabre, but I have to participate. I build what I cannot break. I wouldn’t describe your own rebuilding process over the past few months as ‘violent’ or ‘macabre’, Aries, but it has been arduous and demanding. The good news is that you’ve mostly completed the more demanding jobs. Soon the process will become more fun. Congratulations on creating an unbreakable new version of yourself!
BULL (April 20-May 20): Rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z tells us, “Never go with the flow. Instead, be flow.” Here’s what I think he means: If we go with the flow, we are adapting and adapting to a force that is not necessarily aligned with our personal inclinations and needs. Going with the flow implies that we renounce our autonomy.To claim our full sovereignty, on the other hand, we are wise to be the flow. We have to create our own flow, which is perfectly suited to our unique inclinations and needs. I think this is the right approach for you right now, Taurus. Be the flow.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The Italian language was once a spoken dialect in Tuscany. This area comprises less than eight percent of the country’s territory. How did such a spectacular development come about? Why did a local dialect replace other dialects like Piedmontese, Neapolitan, Sicilian and others? This is partly because three powerful 14th century writers wrote in the Tuscan dialect: Dante Alighieri, Francesco Petrarch and Giovanni Boccaccio. Another reason: Because Tuscany is located in the center of Italy, its dialect has been less influenced by the languages of France and other neighboring countries. I offer this as a metaphor in the months to come. One of your personal talents, affiliations or inclinations could become more influential and widespread and have more authority in your life.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Always strive to be more interested than interesting,” said actress and activist Jane Fonda. Dear Cancer, this may not be easy for you to accomplish in the near future. Your curiosity will be at the highest level, but you can also be more compelling and captivating. So I’m going to modify Fonda’s advice: give yourself permission to be both as interested and as interesting as you can imagine. Entertain the world with your vivid personality as you seek out new information, new insights, and unprecedented experiences.
LEO (July 23-August 22): “When in doubt, act like God,” proclaimed singer-songwriter Leo Madonna. I would generally not approve of this advice. But I will make an exception for you Leos for the next three weeks. Due to a divine configuration of astrological omens, you are allowed to reach new heights of sovereignty and self-possession – even to the point of making a living imitation of God. For best results, don’t choose an angry, jealous, tyrannical deity to be your role model. Be inspired by a kinder, funnier and more intimate type of celestial being.
VIRGIN (August 23-September 22): My Virgo friend Amanda told me she felt tense and overworked. She was thinking too much and was on the verge of a breakdown. With a sad sigh, she added, “I love anything that helps me decompress, relax, calm down, stop worrying, relax, calm down and soothe me.” So I invited her to take a deep breath, close her eyes and visualize herself immersed in blue-green light. Next, I asked her to name the influences she loved: people, animals, natural places, music, books, movies, art, and physical movement that made her happy to be alive. . She found eight different sources of happiness, and together we meditated on them. Half an hour later, she was as relaxed as she had been in months. I recommend that you try a comparable exercise every day for the next 14 days. Be proactive in cultivating quiet pleasure.
BALANCE (Sep 23-Oct 22): Author Anne Lamott is renowned for her tender approach to expressing her struggles with addiction, depression, and other tribulations. One of her supreme tests was being a single mother raising her son Sam. In this effort, she was her usual brave self. Whenever she arranged dates with Sam’s young friends at her house, she used pencils, paints, pens, clay and scissors. “When we were doing art with the kids, the demons were going to bed,” she testified. I recommend you a comparable strategy in the next few days, Libra. You will have extra power when you tame, calm down or transform your demons. Making art can be effective, as well as any task that stimulates your creativity and imagination.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “My heart has developed a sort of amnesia, where it remembers everything but itself,” writes Scorpio poet Sabrina Benaim. If you have a disease that looks like his, that’s about to change. According to my astrological analysis, your heart will soon not only remember everything; he will also remember himself. What a happy homecoming it will be – though it can also be unruly and confusing, at least at first. But once the initial surprise subsides, you will celebrate a dramatic improvement in emotionally rich self-knowledge. You will feel united with the source of your desire to love and be loved.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): “Just because things didn’t go the way I planned doesn’t necessarily mean they went wrong,” writes Sagittarius author Ann Patchett. His thought can be useful for you to meditate. I guess you’ll be happy in the end that things didn’t go the way you planned. God or your Higher Self or the Mysterious Forces of Destiny will conspire to move you away from limited expectations or not big enough visions in order to provide you with bigger and better blessings.
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): Novelist Jane Austen (1775-1817) confessed that she was a “wild beast”. Really? The author who wrote masterfully about the complex social life of the British wealthy? Here’s my theory: the wild beast in her made her quirky, unsentimental, humorous, and brilliant in crafting her stories. How is your own inner wild beast, Capricorn? According to my reading of astrological omens, now is a great time to give him fun and rich assignments. What parts of your life would benefit from tapping into raw, primal energy?
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18): Aquarius poet Jack Gilbert wrote, “I lay in the dark wondering if this calm inside me now is a beginning or an end. I don’t know how Gilbert solved his dilemma. But I suspect you will soon be inclined to ask a similar question. In your case, the answer will be that the calm within you is a start. Ah! But at first it may not feel like a start. You might be intrigued by its fuzzy and curvy quality. But sooner or later, the calm within you will become fertile and inspiring. You will ride it to the next chapter of your life story.
PISCES (February 19-March 20): The genre of poetry known as haiku often relies on unexpected juxtapositions. Critic R.H. Blyth observed, “In haiku the two entirely different things which are joined in similarity are poetry and feeling, spirit and matter.” I suspect your life in the weeks to come will bear metaphorical resemblances to haiku. You’ll be adept at mixing things that aren’t often combined, or that should be mixed but weren’t. For inspiration, read these haikus from Raymond Roseliep. 1. in the stream / the stones are half / the music. 2. horizon / wild swan drifting across / the female body. 3. birth cry! /the stars/ are all in place. 4. bath water / down the drain / part of me. 5. grass / holding the shape / of our night. 6. extinct campfire, / the woman who washes the dishes / in a pot of stars.
