FREE WILL ASTROLOGY
Week of November 9
By Rob Brezsny
ARIES (March 21-April 19): When George W. Bush replaced Bill
Clinton as U.S. president, Bush's advisor Karl Rove decided to take
extraordinary measures in cleansing the White House of the previous occupants'
energy. Rove was especially obsessed with banishing the "evil
spirits" in Hillary Clinton's office, which is why he summoned three
Catholic priests to perform an exorcism. I urge you to do something equally
vivid in order to purge the lingering vibes of people and things that you know
are no good for you, Aries. Remember, though, that this has nothing to do with
perpetrating revenge or harm. It's all about cleansing and reprogramming those
parts of you that are still emotionally entangled with the bad influences.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Early in his film career, actor
Oliver Hardy often played the parts of bad guys. But when he joined with Stan
Laurel to collaborate on their series of comedic movies, he became a likable
buffoon. I predict you'll soon be the beneficiary of a comparable conversion,
Taurus. Some troubling or adversarial influence in your life will become warmer
and fuzzier, maybe even downright helpful and amusing. The psychological term
for a conversion this dramatic is enantiodromia. It refers to the process
whereby something changes into its opposite. It won't be as freakish as it
might initially appear. The unexpected transformation will be the result of an
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): My colleague Ro Loughran (www.yoursouljourney.com)
has an interesting theory about astrology. She starts with the hypothesis that
some version of reincarnation is true. Then she proposes that in each lifetime,
a soul chooses a particular astrological sign because the qualities of that sign
are what the soul wants to learn about. In other words, being born a Gemini
doesn't mean you're automatically a wizard at being a Gemini. On the contrary,
in this lifetime you've become a Gemini in order to master the art of being
one. You're here to get the hang of what it's like to be smart and versatile
and precise and witty. Your assignment is to keep yourself endlessly
entertained and build a strong center of gravity as you juggle a variety of
activities and ideas and friends. This week is a perfect time to meditate on
how lucky you are to have been given this gift, and to recommit yourself to
using it to the fullest.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you're ever in your life going to
be hired to model underwear or get invited by a magazine to expound on your
love-making secrets, it will happen soon. If you ever thought it might be fun
to see what might happen if you tried to hypnotize someone with your animal
magnetism or seduce someone with your telepathic magic, give it a go now. If
you've been waiting for the perfect moment to gather rosary beads, the Torah, a
Buddhist prayer wheel, a five-pointed silver star, and a statue of the Hindu
goddess Shakti, and then unleash a sexy prayer for your supreme dream in the
direction of every deity that might listen, this would be a good time.
