LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 22):
Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh was born under the sign of Libra. He said, “The root of the word ‘Buddha’ means to awaken, to know, to understand; and one who awakens and understands is called a Buddha.” Thus, according to him, the spiritual master Siddhartha Gautama who lived in ancient India was only one Buddha among many others. And according to my astrological calculation, you will have a much better chance than usual of being yourself as one of these Buddhas in the weeks to come. The alarm clock will be your specialty. You will have an extraordinary ability to free yourself from dreamy illusions and dark misunderstandings. I hope you take full advantage of it. Deeper understandings are near.
SCORPIO (23 Oct-21 Nov):
I invite you to be the sexiest, most intriguing and mysterious Scorpio you can be in the weeks to come. Here are some ideas to get you started. 1. Sprinkle the phrase “in accordance with prophecy” in your conversations. 2. Find an image that symbolizes rebirth and revitalization resulting from disruption. Meditate on it daily until you actually experience rebirth and revitalization resulting from disturbance. 3. Be kind and merciful to the young souls you know who are living their first lives. 4. Collect deep, dark secrets from interesting people you know. Use this information to plan how you will avoid the problems they have endured. 5. Buy two deluxe water guns and two foam rubber knives. Use them to fight playful battles with the ones you love.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21):
There is an ancient Greek saying, “I seek the truth, by which no one has ever been truly hurt.” I consider this a beautiful motto for you Sagittarians. When you are at your best and brightest, you are on a quest for truth. And while your quests can sometimes disrupt the status quo, they often bring healthy transformations. The truths you uncover may shake up routines and disrupt habits, but they ultimately lead to greater clarity and authenticity. Now is an excellent time to focus on this aspect of your nature.
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):
Let’s imagine that you are in your office or at work or sitting at your kitchen table. With focused diligence, you work to solve a problem or improve a situation that involves a number of people. You think to yourself, “Nobody seems to know that I’m quietly working here behind the scenes to make the magic happen.” A few days or weeks later, your efforts have been crowned with success. The problem is resolved or the situation has improved. But then you hear the people involved say, “Wow, I wonder what happened? It’s like things just sort themselves out.” If a scenario like this occurs, Capricorn, I urge you to speak up and tell everyone what really happened.
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18):
To honor your entry into the most expansive phase of your astrological cycle, I call on the guidance of an intuitive guide named Nensi the Priestess of Mercury. She offers the following tips. 1. Cultivate a mindset in which you expect something unexpected to happen. 2. Fantasize about the possibility of a surprising blessing or an unexpected miracle. 3. Imagine that a seductive breakthrough will burst into your rhythm. 4. Get rid of some preconceived ideas about how your life story will unfold over the next two years. 5. Strengthen your trust in the innate wisdom of your inner self. 6. Be more open to receiving help and gifts.
PISCES (February 19-March 20):
Author Colin Wilson describes sex as “a thirst for the blending of consciousness, symbolized by the blending of bodies. Whenever partners quench their thirst in the strange waters of each other’s identity, they glimpse the ‘immensity of their freedom’. I like this way of understanding erotic urge and I recommend you give it a try for a while. You are entering a phase where you will have additional power to refine and expand the way you experience blending and merging. If you’re not sure what the words “synergy” and “symbiosis” mean, I suggest you look them up in the dictionary. They should be featured themes for you in the weeks to come.
ARIES (March 21-April 19):
Poet Susan Howe describes the poetry as a “lovely search for a memorable moment at the dark fringes of the evening when we came together to bless and believe.” I would like to use this lyrical assessment to describe your life in the next few days – or at least what I hope will be your life. According to my astrological advice, this is a good time to intensify your quest for interesting adventures in intimacy; seek new ways of imagining and creating living together; collaborating with allies to create courageous synergistic excursions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20):
The social reformer Frederick Douglass (1817-1895) had a growl. It was a one-room stone cabin where he escaped to think deeply, work on his books, and literally grunt. As a genius who escaped slavery and spent the rest of his life fighting for the rights of his fellow black people, he had plenty of reason to growl, howl, and holler as well as growl. The coming weeks would be a great time for you to find or start your own growlery, Taurus. The anger you feel will be especially likely to lead to constructive change. The same goes for the deep thoughts you invoke in your growl: they will be extremely powerful in helping you make sound practical decisions.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20):
“Lead your unfoldment in the noise and whip of the whirlwind,” wrote Gemini poet Gwendolyn Brooks. I love this advice! The whirlpool is his metaphor for the chaos of everyday life. She told us that we should not wait to mature. until the daily rhythm is calm and flowing. Live wild and free right now! This is still good advice, in my opinion, but it will be especially relevant for you in the weeks to come. Now is the time to “approve the splashes of splendor” and “sway in bad grace,” as Brooks would say.
CANCER (June 21-July 22):
“Don’t look away,” advised novelist Henry Miller in a letter to his lover. “Look carefully at everything. Look everything in the eye, good and bad. While this advice is appealing, I don’t endorse it unconditionally. I’m a Cancer, and I sometimes find it helpful to look at things from the sidelines, or catch reflections in mirrors, or even divert my attention for a while. In my opinion, we crabs have a special need to protect and feed ourselves. And to do that, we may have to be evasive and elusive. In my astrological view, the next two weeks will be one of those times. I urge you to look directly and only fully commit to what is good for you.
LEO (July 23-August 22):
Tips for getting the most out of the next three weeks: 1. Play at least as hard as you work. 2. Give yourself permission to do all things with integrity and compassion. 3. Assume there is no limit to the amount of bountiful exhilaration you can invoke and express. 4. Caress and caress enthusiastic partners as much as possible. And tell them EXACTLY where and how it feels good. 5. Be magnanimous in every gesture, whether big or small. 6. Even if you don’t consider yourself a skilled singer, use singing to get you out of any mood you don’t want to stay in.
VIRGO (August 23-September 22):
In the coming weeks, you should refrain from struggling with problems that resist your solutions. Be discerning about how you use your superior analytical abilities. Focus only on manageable dilemmas that really answer your smart poll. PS: I am sorry for the people who are not receptive to your contribution, but you cannot force them to give up their ignorance or their suffering. Go where you are wanted. Take the power where it is offered. Meditate on the wisdom of Anaïs Nin: “You cannot save people. You can only love them.
