and suddenly that steady even rhythm that comes across the screen reveals a weird blip it's deviation without which we would be rational automatons Pisces stirs your deepest fantasies and when the Moon is Full in Pisces lobsters are crawling out of the sea dogs are baying at the Moon and you you are at the mercy of your own unconscious wishes
Don't wait for the Earth to shift on its axis. I'ts not the Earth. It's YOU. Me. All of us. For the next several months you will find yourself wobbling back and forth from enthusiastic inspiration to dark desperation and back again from senses of being trapped and helpless to being fiercely eager and determined to win at any situation from passive forgiveness to royal rage and back and forth wobbling wobbling wobbling every time the MOON or any other planet touches Uranus at 29 Pisces and the ghost position of zero degrees Aries patience and faith will vie with the angry urge to act on your own behalf and make your own way such abnormal behavior is perfectly normal
You are close to a breakthrough in a relationship that is
dear to your heart, your soul and your libido.
Hubba hubba.... heh. Well, I did have a brain-changing experience this weekend, which I am still freaking REELING about.
Yet you may be wondering why you
are so involved,
Hah, you have NO idea. That's where the brain-changing came in.
and why it seems like you have so little influence over the
course of events.
Well, that one I know...the timing isn't right yet, or the circumstances.
I suggest rather than getting caught up in the mystery, that
you think of your situation as walking down the street, or on a path. You
cannot fly, but you can choose where to put your feet. You can walk slower and
see the scenery and shop windows. You can walk quicker and move toward a
certain location. You have options. It is true that you may feel like you're in
too deep, but that's not necessarily true, and what you have is more
pleasurable and meaningful than something that you could describe as 'too
shallow'. Your destination is water; when you get there, remember to swim.
And that sums it up all very nicely. It's a path, man. And I'm choosing to follow it because not following it sucks! That's the realization I came to this weekend. I am no longer feeling conflicted about it, which is nice. Embrace the insanity!
Are you rebelling against your own sexual energy? Are you
maintaining a kind of purity to give you a sense of safety? Or do you simply
feel alone in the world? I propose that how you feel about sex describes how
you feel about your whole life. You can in fact make a detailed description of
your erotic existence and then read it as if you're explaining your feelings
about being on the planet. The sense of isolation you may be experiencing will
help you break free of someone or something: an attitude, a relationship, an
emotional pattern or a sense of being stuck.
Okay, I can't argue with this.
The planets are aligning in such a
way that is promising you the experience of being anything but stuck, though it
may seem daunting to make that first move. Gather your courage and do what it
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Instead of trying to rally yourself for
a drastic change, ease in. Unfurl gradual alterations that build one
upon the other, one day after the next. Should you make excessively
dramatic demands of yourself to leap way ahead in just a few massive
strides, you're liable to throw yourself off balance. Such wishful
attempts to rebuild Rome in a day, Taurus, invite the stubbornly
resistant bull to overcompensate for this threat to its
predictability… ultimately making it harder to effect the shift
in habits you're hoping for, because you're expecting too much progress
in too short a time (and perhaps forgetting that Taureans are most
successful when granted ample patience). Settle for one modest, though
still noteworthy, refinement per day… and let the minor adjustments
build on themselves.
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): Don't try to get
anything from any given exchange, other than perhaps a good laugh or
two. Release all grips, and relax into a detachment from outcomes.
Yeah...I needed this horoscope last week, 'cause that's what brought on the emotional drama :P
won't be unprepared to ask 'how high?' once the universe yells 'jump!'
Or put another way, Scorpio: You're already essentially 'ready', but
the bell just hasn't yet rung. Step back from the starting-line. Take a
few moments behind the bleachers, to do what the bad (but not really
bad) kids do, blowing off steam and a few punchlines. No need to keep
nervously checking. When the time comes, you'll know. Until then, quit
hassling yourself. Trust in the cyclical quality of time never to
stick you in a quicksand pit of inertia for too long before it spits you
back out again and poof! you're no longer stuck. You're burning off
the last bits of a destiny already put to bed. Limbo, like those
annoyingly drawn-out two hours of waste at Kennedy or O'Hare between
flights—still a few moments left to grab a magazine, a burger or a piss
before boarding begins.
Heh. Good point.
Oh, hey, another one: this week's Michael Lutin:
You have to work hard now and remain intellectually
open to the cultural and philosophical shifts to which you are now challenged
to adjust. Your life direction is not as screwed up as it seems.
and disappointments you’ve encountered are not the work of a malignant Fate,
designed to foil your efforts and destroy your dreams of stability and success.
Proving to loved ones that you are not so rigid and stubborn is hard. Very
Why would I bother? I'm a Bull, man.
the fact that your body has been driving you nuts and reminding you to take
better care of yourself, you seem to be torn between commitments. There’s no
sense getting your undies in a bunch over relationships with neighbors and
relatives, especially if you can’t manipulate the situation right now. And you
cannot. Emotionally your situation is still hyper-complicated and messy. To
avoid confusion and worry, stay clean and sober.
LIBRA Mercury is retrograde in your solar house of the
unconscious, stirring dreams, visions, and, in certain cases,
hallucinations about the past. Pay attention to these messages, and
you'll gather valuable information about what is and isn't true for you.
SCORPIO Mercury facilitates meetings with old friends, and
while some of these encounters may feel awkward, for the most part, each
one is a chance to see your personal history with greater clarity. So
don't be afraid to make contact.
Many years from now, when people find this post, it will make far more sense to read than it does now. Sorry about that.
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):You're metamorphosing in the
shadows, in semi-seclusion. You keep receiving messages, from the
marketplace and the universe (and your astrologer), to surrender… to lay
low… to consider starting to consider really reconsidering
certain pillars of self-definition that were previously so important but
are no longer providing you the same foundational solidness… all of
which have seemed, for too long a while now, to leave you decidedly unclear
on which direction is north (and, for that matter, whether that means
you should run toward or away from the compass-pointer).
This story will give way to another one, Scorpio, in about four
weeks or so—a tale of rebirth, in which your starring role as the
valiant reappearing hero will bring you in contact with both new
opportunities and enticing echoes from your past—that'll last you
through the end of 2010. Yes, that's right: Soon enough, this phase of
blasé wanderings and obscured entryways, dizzying standstills and dull
clouds of unshakable melancholy opens up into something else.
With the promise of this not lasting forever, then, you should
have plenty to pin your hopes on… still without knowing
I'm not that into general horoscopes in general (who's surprised to hear this on an astrology blog?) because they're not nearly nitpicky/specific/personal enough for my tastes, but sometimes, once in awhile, it does seem dead on to me personally.
Shadow metamorphosis? Yes. Messages to surrender? Yes. Lay low? Eh...more like "the big giant change stuff isn't happening for a few years yet, so chill." Really reconsidering pillars of self-definition...yeah, that's the part that's scary as fuck.
One particular one of mine, which is VERY IMPORTANT TO ME, looks like it's gonna be .... Not because I want it to go or because I have genuinely changed my mind about it, because I have NOT. Unfortunately it's looking more like I'm going to have to be forced to do it in order to serve well, a greater purpose. And the final endgame requires me to do what I've never wanted to do. If I'm to follow the path that I'm told I can't get off of, doing what I don't want to do is apparently a requirement. I have years to go before I'm under the gun about it, mind you, but it's definitely something that, knowing about it ahead of time, I have spent years looking for escape routes from.
Unclear? Yes... I have to say that the "run toward or away from the
compass-pointer" is EERILY DEAD ON. Especially this weekend when I was having a meltdown about that. I got offered the opportunity to do something else I said I wasn't going to do... mostly because to me it's a step on the path and even though technically it's not irrevocable-- I'm not setting off the final set of dominoes if I do it-- it's farther along than I've been comfortable doing. I'm still not comfortable doing it. The closer I get to the thing this week, the more I'm going to be shitting bricks about it, and I know darned well how superuncomfortable I am going to be doing it. But... people have been pestering me about it, and even I will admit that if one studies manifestation as much as I have, at some point I actually have to act in accord about the situation. So yeah.
"Valiant REAPPEARING hero?" Oh my. More appropriate than you know.
Oh, and today's Michael Lutin...
Business person, aspiring artist, or lover, you’ve got to make
sure you know the difference between fact and fiction. It’s one thing to
have inspired dreams, but quite another to hammer them into
manifestation. Realizing your fantasies will take not only the sweat of
your own brow, but the cooperation of people you have to be sensitive
to, whether you feel like it or not. Think long term. It won’t kill you.
