Page 2 of 2LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
British pop star Kate Nash sent a message in a song to a guy she had a crush on. “I wish that you knew when I said two sugars, actually, I meant three.” In other words, her idea of a soulmate is someone who reads her mind and knows what she needs even if she isn’t clear about what she needs. This is the opposite of the way you should proceed in the coming weeks, Libra. Don’t assume that the people whose love you crave are telepathic geniuses with a perfect understanding of your every nuance. Spell it all out.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This is one of those rare times when your empathy could undo you unless you adhere to the following guidelines. 1. Squelch any attraction you might have to fascinating ruins, sexy decay, or appalling beauty. 2. If you have been sucked into the sphere of a good-looking monster or seductive tyrant, yank yourself free. 3. Break your gaze the instant you sense you’re falling under the sway of a flaming narcissist. 4. Suppress the temptation to think this thought: “I’m bored with my hell; I want to hang out in your hell for a change.”
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
On the morning of May 4, 2004, film producer Rielle Hunter woke up to find herself, by her own admission, fully enlightened. Soon she had become “addicted to higher consciousness,” and was unable to get involved with anything unless it expanded her awareness. If such a sequence of events were ever going to occur for you, Sagittarius, it would start soon.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You would stir up exciting changes in your approach to life in you took time in the next few weeks to find out more about the crowning achievements of your most intriguing ancestors. It will also be a favorable time for you to engage in dreamy conversations with the historical figures you admire most, and to muse in luxurious detail on memories of events that were crucial in making you who you are. For extra credit, have fun imagining who you were in your last two incarnations. The past has gifts to give you, Capricorn. Go gather them up.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
According to the book The Meaning of Tingo, Filipinos make use of the Tagalog term “layogenic” to refer to a person who looks really attractive from a distance, but not so good close-up. I’m guessing that in the coming week you may encounter more than one phenomenon that could fit that description. That’s why I suggest you stop undervaluing the people, things, and experiences that are right in front of you. They might not seem as spectacular as the far-off phantasms. But unlike the phantasms, they really are pretty fine.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Musician Sarah McLachlan told the crowd at one of her concerts: “I feel great about singing really depressing songs.” In the U2 song “A Man and a Woman,” Bono sings, “The only pain is to feel nothing at all.” They are your role models in the coming week, Pisces. I hope they inspire you to feel grateful for your capacity to experience such intense emotions. You’re lucky to be so sensitive! You’re blessed to have so much vital force! So please celebrate your talent for feeling melancholy and overwhelmed. Congratulate yourself for being such a connoisseur of guilt, confusion, and anxiety. You’re more alive than other people. You’ve got a soul as big and wild and deep as the Amazon River.
