    Planetary Influences Suggest We Will Be Tugged in Two Different Directions

    astrolSince the death of the icon Robin Williams, the highs and lows we humans are capable of experiencing are fresh in our minds and hearts, and possibly our direct personal experience too. The planetary influences suggest we will all be tugged in two seemingly different directions of our human capacities. Big, abundant expansion of our generous hearts and self-expression battles with our deep, dark, intense side, and what Ekart Tolle calls “our pain body.” As these two polarities duke it out, it will serve you well to acknowledge both without over-analyzing or criticizing either. Think of all the ways you can humbly master your most authentic self by being large enough to hold both ends of the stick at the same time. If you are not sure what I mean, think about the greatest moment of love that you have ever experienced.  Now think about the greatest uncontrollable loss you ever known. Now remember that in our humanness, one is intrinsically linked to the other. Mania is to uninhibited life, as depression is to inevitable death.

    ARIES (March 21–April 19) Measuring your appearance with a mythical yardstick will not serve the deeper essence of your being. Your fantasy self versus your true self may battle for mirror time like a couple getting ready for an evening out on the town. Master your daily habits without holding yourself hostage to cultural normative standards of beauty.

    TAURUS (April 20–May 20) Dig for the deeper layers under your emotional skin to find a glowing child ready to be liked by you. Serve and treasure that little being until you fully and completely realize that this is you! While you can help yourself master the currents of your creativity, do not be overly critical, or you may become depressed and block the channel.

    GEMINI (May 21–June 20) Have you ever been around a child who playfully and innocently tells the truth that no adult in the room would dare to tell? It’s as if such children simply channel the forbidden shadow like they are making bunny shapes on the walls with their little hands. Keep in mind that there are very creative and humorous ways you can tell your emotional truth to yourself right now.

    CANCER (June 21–July 22) If you approach others with humility and the intention to serve, you are likely to channel and language the divine and mystical realm of non-ordinary reality. If you over-analyze every moment and every detail, you will instantly close the portal as well as the ears of everyone around you. People are drawn to you. Stay humble, and relax a little around the details.

    LEO (July 23–August 22) Under the circumstances of ironclad domestic drama, your self esteem is remarkably high right now. This grand sense of yourself is spilling into the mastery of your worth, and is measured by your fierce attention to gathering the resources you need to promote and grow this new and confident you. Stay centered in your heart.

    VIRGO (August 23–September 22) The mystery of relationships is like the fog on the bathroom mirror after a hot shower. You keep wiping it down to see your reflection, and it keeps fogging up again. In and out of this misty vision is the relationship vibe that surrounds you now. Let yourself be lost in the mist of another in order to see yourself more clearly.

    LIBRA (September 23–October 22) Find time to close the curtains and rest in the spirit of your soul. This gives you time to release any guilt and need for atonement that have built up over the past year. I suggest a daily routine that suites your definition of a spiritual practice, and enough down time to balance your active social engagements. Like an electric car after a day on the road, you need to go to the garage and plug in.

    SCORPIO (October 23–November 21) You have a golden opportunity to assert yourself as the authority while your social status is that of a king or queen. Please respect your rise to the top by humbly knowing and serving your tribe. If your followers detect ego-driven grandiosity, you will be the object of nit-picking and jealous retaliation.

    SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21) Hi ho, hi ho, it’s back to work you go…Finding and keeping the rhythm of your public routines may be less exciting than the darker delicious fantasies of your hidden desires. There will be a time and a place for you to binge and indulge, but now you must devote the skills you have mastered to your role at the tribal table.

    CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) Take a vacation immediately! Today’s technologies assure that you are never completely disconnected from your duties, and we know deep down that this makes you happy. Enjoy some dirty indulgence and try not to call the office too many times while you are playing down under.

    AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) Sometimes there are rules and standards for good reason. I don’t expect you to love this concept, however, try to add a dash of conservative embodied ritual to your work and play this month. I’m certain you will enjoy some quirky twists and turns, as well as alchemical delights that will please your rule breaker.

    PISCES (February 19–March 20) Okay, it’s time. No more fantasies about your remarkable availability for intimacy, while focusing on the other’s shortcomings. If you tend to do the reverse, don’t do that either! Nit-picking and romantic fantasy create the same smoke and mirrors, blocking your clear sight into yourself and that elusive soul-mate feel. Experiencing the divine oneness with another demands that you stay centered in the vulnerability of your own heart.
