ARIES (March 21-April 19): Most people spend their entire lives
immersed in three modes of awareness: waking, sleeping, and dreaming. But there
are many other modes that have been explored down through the ages by the
pioneers of consciousness. Some of them aren't very interesting to me —
like those sought out by people who use cocaine or methamphetamines, for
instance — while others are states I aspire to inhabit, like lucid
dreaming, deep meditation, and a visceral perception of the fact that love is
the fundamental law of the universe. I bring this line of thought to your
attention, Aries, because I believe that in 2009 you will have excellent
opportunities to open up your mind to levels of consciousness that are beyond
the basic three. No drugs are necessary to take advantage -- only a driving
curiosity to tune in to realities that are currently outside of your field of
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In the original Constitution of the
United States, adopted in 1787, each black slave living in America was counted
as three-fifths of a person. Seventy-eight years later, the Thirteenth
Amendment conferred the missing two-fifths on all who had up until then been
regarded as partial humans. I predict that a comparable milestone will come for
you in 2009, Taurus. Where in your life have you been marginalized or
perpetually unfinished? What fragmented role have you been compelled to play?
What situation has prevented you from being all you can be? You will have an
excellent chance of completing the circuit in the coming months.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): According to the novelist John
Gardner, there are just two kinds of stories in literature: you go on a
journey, or a stranger arrives in your world. According to my analysis of your
destiny in 2009, you will reap rich rewards by including both of those
plotlines in your life story. So let the brainstorming begin, Gemini: What's
the best journey you could choose for yourself — a journey that will
educate, challenge, and delight you? And what can you do to attract the best
kinds of strangers into your world — strangers who will educate,
challenge, and delight you?
CANCER (June 21-July 22): To get ready for 2009, I invite you
to fantasize in depth about the fertile alliances that might be possible for
you to cultivate in the coming months. These lively, inspiring bonds could be
with people you haven't met yet. They could be with acquaintances you barely
know but would like to know better. And they could be with friends,
collaborators, and loved ones you're already intimate with but want to become
even closer to. The coming year has the potential to bring revolutionary
advances in the quality and intensity of your relationships, so it will be
smart for you to work hard on making that happen.
