RAM
(March 21-April 19)

“Consecrate” is not a word that one often comes across in intellectual circles. In my home country America, many otherwise intelligent people reject the possibility that we want to make things sacred. And much art aspires to do the opposite of consecration: to strip the world of holiness and to mock the urge to commune with sanctified experiences. But the filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975) expressed a contradictory point of view. He wrote: “I’m not interested in desecration: it’s a fad I hate. I want to rededicate things as much as possible, I want to re-mythize them. In keeping with the astrological omens, Aries, I invite you to look for opportunities to do the same.

TAURUS
(April 20-May 20)

Anaïs Nin wrote: “I don’t want worship. I want understanding. George Orwell said, “Maybe we didn’t want to be loved as much as we wanted to be understood. Poet Marina Tsvetaeva said: “As far as I can remember, I thought I wanted to be loved. Now I know: I don’t need love, I need understanding. Here is what I will add, Taurus: If you ask for understanding and seek it, a multitude of it will be available to you in the weeks to come.

GEMINI
(May 21-June 20)

The English idiom “to play hard to get” means “to pretend to be unavailable or indifferent in order to make oneself more attractive or desirable”. Psychologists say this strategy often works, although it’s crucial not to go overboard and lose your pursuer’s interest. 17th-century philosopher Baltasar Gracián expressed the concept in a more philosophical way. He said, “Leave the people hungry. Even with physical thirst, the trick to good taste is to stimulate it, not quench it. What is good, if it is sparse, is twice as good. unquestionably excellent. Hard-earned happiness is twice as good. I suggest you consider deploying these strategies, Gemini.

CANCER
(June 21-July 22)

The painter John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) sometimes worked alongside the painter Claude Monet (1840-1926) at Monet’s. He asked the older man for advice. Before their first session, Sargent realized that there was no black among the paint colors Monet had given him to work on. What?! Monet didn’t use black? Sargent was shocked. He couldn’t imagine painting without her. And yet, he was doing fine without. In fact, the apparent limitation required him to be creative in a way he had never imagined before. What would be your metaphorical equivalent, Cancer: An Inspirational Limitation?

LEO
(July 23-August 22)

According to Lion Guy de Maupassant author, “We usually only use our eyes with the memory of what people before us thought of the things we look at.” Too bad. It makes us miss a lot of the riches of life. Indeed, said de Maupassant, “There is a part of the unexplored in everything. The smallest thing contains a bit of the unknown. Your mission over the next two weeks, Leo, is to take his thoughts to heart. In each experience, engage “with enough attention to find something that no one has ever seen or talked about.” You are in a phase where you could discover and enjoy record levels of novelty.

VIRGIN
(23 August-22 September)

Poet Brigit Pegeen Kelly wrote a poem that I want you to know. She described how, as a child, she would stay awake all night picking peaches in her father’s orchard by starlight. For hours, she climbed up and down the ladder. Her hands “twisted the fruit” as if she “entered a thousand doors.” When the stars faded and morning came, his insides were like “the calm that a bell possesses just after ringing.” This is the kind of experience that I wish you for the days to come, Virgo. I know it can’t be exactly the same. Can you imagine what the closest equivalent might be? Make it happen!

BALANCE
(September 23-October 22)

The Greek philosopher Plato was wary of laughter, poetry, bright colors, and artists who used bright colors. All of these moving activities made people be emotional, Plato thought, and therefore posed a threat to a rational and orderly society. Wow! I am glad that I am not living in a culture that originated from Plato! Oh wait, I do. His writing is the basis of Western thought. A modern philosopher said: “The European philosophical tradition consists of a series of footnotes to Plato. Anyway, I advise you to rebel against Plato in the coming weeks. Above all, you need experiences that arouse and please and enhance your feelings. Contrary to Plato’s fears, it will increase your intelligence and increase your decision-making powers.

SCORPIO
(October 23-November 21)

A biography of Nobel Prize-winning Scorpio author Albert Camus noted that he had two fashions. They are summed up in French words solidarity (“unit”) and solitary (“solitary”). When Camus was in a solidarity phase, he immersed himself in convivial engagement, enjoying the pleasures of socialization. But when he decided it was time to work hard to write his books, he retreated into a monastic routine to harness intense creativity. According to my astrological analysis, you Scorpios are currently in the solidarity phase of your rhythm. Make the most of it! When the next solitary phase come? October could be such a time.

SAGITTARIUS
(November 22-December 21)

In the 76 years since the end of World War II, Italy has experienced 69 different governments. That’s a big turnover! Is it a strength or a weakness to have so many changes in leadership? On the one hand, such flexibility could be an asset; it might be wise to keep reinventing the power structure as circumstances change. On the other hand, having so little continuity and stability can undermine confidence and generate stressful uncertainty. I draw your attention to this, Sagittarius, because you are entering a phase where you could be as changeable as Italy. Is this what you want? Would it serve you or undermine you? Make a conscious choice.

CAPRICORN
(December 22-January 19)

Capricorn actor Nicholas Browne testifies: “My heart is too full; it spills over into everything I see. I’m drowning in my own heart. I have plunged into the depth of the emotion, and I see no way to go back. , I pray no one will come and save me. ”I guess his deep ability to feel and express emotions serves Browne well in his craft. While I wouldn’t recommend such a deep 24/7 immersion, I think you will be wise to embark on such an excursion within the next three weeks. Have fun diving! How far can you go?

AQUARIUS
(January 20-February 18)

In keeping with current astrological omens, I’m calling on author Byron Katie to deliver a message to you. Is he infused with harsh love or gentle encouragement? Both! Here’s Katie: “When you realize that the pain and discomfort is a call to inquiry, you can actually start to expect uncomfortable feelings. You may even feel them as friends coming to show you what you haven’t investigated enough yet. Prepare to dive deeper than you’ve ever dared to go before, Aquarius. I guarantee you that it will eventually become fun and educational.

PISCES
(February 19-March 20)

In August 1922, author Nikos Kazantzakis wrote this triumphant declaration: “All day today I have had the sweetest and most thrilling joy, because I am beginning to heal. I am beginning to take possession of the light again. “In the name of the cosmic powers that be, I authorize you to use these words as your own in the weeks to come. They capture the transformations that are taking place for you. By speaking the statements of Kazantzakis aloud several times a day, you will make sure that his experience will be yours as well.
