Page 2 of 2LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Twenty years ago, I ran for city council in Santa Cruz, California. As one of my campaign promises, I told voters I would regularly consult with the spirit of America’s third president, Thomas Jefferson, with whom I’d established a telepathic rapport. I fell a few hundred votes short of winning a council seat, but I kept my pledge anyway: I’ve been communing with Jefferson ever since. Last night I met with him in my dreams. I told him you’re in an astrological phase that’s favorable for seeking out new teachers and teachings, and I asked if he had any advice. He suggested that you do what I do: Have conversations, either in dreams or fantasies, with an historical figure you deeply respect.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
The most striking feature on the planet Jupiter is the Great Red Spot, a storm that resembles a giant unblinking eye. It has lasted over 300 years and is wider than the planet Earth. I invite you to regard it as your symbol of power in the coming weeks. Think of it whenever you’d like to use your eyes to see in bigger and better ways, or whenever you want to draw on the inspirational power of a beautiful storm, or whenever you’d like to transform some disturbance in your life into a long-lived source of dazzling energy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
For over a decade, members of the worldwide Garden Gnome Liberation Front have been stealing garden gnomes from the yards of people’s homes and relocating them into their natural home in the forests. While I admire their pranks, I can’t in good conscience advise you to join their ranks. Your instinct for freedom is exceptionally high these days, true, but it would be a shame to waste it on helping inanimate objects. Instead, please devote your tremendous emancipatory energies to practical causes and living beings.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
It’s clear to me that a part of you needs to come out of hiding. I’m not exactly sure what that means, though. Maybe there’s a talent you’ve buried that’s ready to emerge into the light. It could be that a question you’ve been trying to ignore is finally ripe to be asked. Perhaps you’ve been stoically putting up with a tweaked situation that you really should rise up and transform. What do you think it is, Capricorn?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
My favorite places on the Moon are the Sea of Clouds, Sea of Fertility, Sea of Ingenuity, and Sea of Nectar. They’re not actual bodies of water. The old astronomers who named them didn’t know they were actually dark plains formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. But the great thing about the moon is that it piques our imaginations and massages our dreams as much as it speaks to our rational minds. And I encourage you to take advantage of that power now. Here’s one possible way: Daydream a story about a heroic quest in which you acquire four magical boons, one each at the Sea of Clouds, Sea of Fertility, Sea of Ingenuity, and Sea of Nectar
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of the U.K., chose an unlikely context to propose marriage to his future wife: She was kneeling in front of the toilet wielding a scrub brush. I expect a comparable event in your near future, Pisces: An appealing invitation or big opening will come your way while you’re in a humble position. The only advice I have is to put down your scrub brush before responding.
