Free will astrology 

Week of June 11

ARIES (March 21-April 19): So you're trying to tell me that the way out is the way in. Is that right? And that the "wrong" answer just might be the right answer? And that success, if it makes an appearance, will most likely happen by accident? I don't know, Aries. It's tricky to get away with this upside-down approach to life unless you have a lot of discipline and yet also don't take yourself too seriously. You've got to be both rigorous and flexible -- a stickler for detail and a master of improvisation. I do suspect you're up for the challenge, but what do you think?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In an interview, musician Attiss Ngoval told the San Francisco Chronicle that he'd want the superpower of X-ray vision "IF and ONLY IF I could use it to see people naked under their clothes. I don't want it if all I see is skeletons." That's a good standard for you to keep in mind during the coming weeks, Taurus. I definitely think you'll have an ability to see deeper into the multi-layer levels of reality than you've had in quite some time. But your challenge will be to employ that gift to explore sights that are really interesting and useful to you, not just everything and anything that's usually hidden.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): My astrological charts suggest that your immediate future is wide open -- so much so that it's difficult to predict which scenarios are more likely than all the others. This might mean that your free will is especially free right now. But in the interest of giving you something specific to grab on to, I'll name a few of the myriad possible scenarios. 1) A self-styled anarchist scholar, heir to the fortune of a famed Japanese anime artist, will invite you to a sushi feast at a speakeasy club called "Planet Mars" to discuss the Theory of Everything. 2) A clownish saint with a tattoo of a cobra swallowing the Earth will get you high by sniffing the pimple medication Clearasil, and then tell you a secret about who you were in one of your past lives. 3) A familiar stranger will hand you a Cracker Jack toy and whisper, "Are we never going to see each other again? Or will we get married tomorrow?"

CANCER (June 21-July 22): In honor of the karmic clean-up phase of your astrological cycle, I invite you to do the following exercise: imagine a pit in the middle of a desert that holds everything you've ever used up, spoiled, and outgrown. Your old furniture is here, along with stuff like once-favorite clothes, CDs, and empty boxes of your favorite cereal. But this garbage dump also contains subtler trash, like photos that capture cherished dreams you gave up on, mementoes from failed relationships, and symbols of defunct beliefs and self-images you used to cling to. Everything that is dead to you is gathered here. Got that vision in your mind's eye? Now picture yourself dousing the big heap of stuff with gasoline and setting it on fire. Watch it burn.
