(Editor’s Note: In this issue, we welcome intuitive astrology consultant Linda Amburgey to the “Bay Times.” Both she and Gypsy Love will be reading the stars for you in their own insightful and spiritual ways. Many of you probably already know Linda, who owns the popular store Crystal Way in the Castro. It’s really more than a store, serving as a warm and beautiful metaphysical center right in our own neighborhood. Crystal Way features high quality crystals and gemstones from around the world, along with other fantastic one-of-a-kind gifts. Linda is perhaps its greatest gem, though! She earned an M.A. in Holistic Ministry from the American Institute of Holistic Theology, and has over 15 years of experience in counseling clients in their pursuit toward self-actualization. We are honored that Linda is now part of the “Bay Times” family.)
Krishnamurti said that those who seek truth in relationships must be free of the destructive and limiting desire to be safe and secure. We waste massive amounts of precious life force energy when we are delusional about our ability to control our lives. We don’t create reality, but we can create our response to it. The prevailing Cosmic winds are blowing ferociously, and the one certain outcome is change. Be intentional and participate by asking what personal revolution you currently need the courage to face. Make it your mantra to release your grip, and focus your heart on the highest possible outcome for everyone involved. Remember, Dorothy never would have had the grace of her awakening heart if she and Toto would have made it safely into the cellar.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Every flock needs a bold bird to fly point. It is your evolutionary intent to do this as often as possible. Keeping the perspective of your relationship to the entire flock, it is now time for you to reinvent the way you spread your wings. Don’t be afraid to forge fiercely ahead on unconventional flight patterns. Just be sure your motives are pure.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
You may feel a spontaneous urge to hide behind the veil this month. Rest assured that the fantasies you are having are a result of your current attunement to the warriors, ancestors, and aliens that exist in a simultaneous reality. You are now in direct dialogue with divine consciousness. Be prepared for sudden insights that will seed your future.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
I know you like to go from moment to moment, and your attention is usually scattered in a zillion directions, but now the currents are aligning you to your long-range hopes. Break free from old stories, friends, and habits that mirror what is now behind you. Look to the future and demand something different for yourself.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
If you are prone to motion sickness, take your ginger tea with you to work this month because your boats gonna be rockin’ on the job. The rapids are strong, unpredictable, and change is inevitable. Coworkers, bosses and partners may push you over the edge, so initiate the leap yourself.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Being timid and taking no risks will only have you wandering aimlessly and leave you increasingly phobic. Your moral compass may swing wildly, and true North may prove to be false. Great! That means you’re on the right path. Go fiercely forward with your newfound faith and all will be well as you find meaning again.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
As one of the zodiacs constant worry warts, your concerns will be directed toward finances for a bit. Do not overindulge in parties and pleasures for now, as they will certainly give you a shock in the pocket book. Intimate others hold the remote control to your shock therapy. Prepare to do some shadow work as a result.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Inner stability? Nope. Relationship harmony? Nope. Balanced self? Nope. Work opportunities? Maybe, but not without some disorientation. All areas of your life are subject to uncertainty and change right now. It will serve you to remember two of your strong points: adjustment and compromise.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Presumably, electroshock therapy resets the brain functions. Your body may be electrified as it assimilates the shocks that your environment is producing. This is necessary to loosen any mental concepts that have become fixed and rigid. You might even enjoy those sudden jolts!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
It is your birthright to be philosophically restless. It is now imperative that you channel all this pent up energy into a creative project. This will prevent you from overpowering those around you with your own personal values and truths..
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Normally time well spent for you is time invested in your ambitions and accomplishments. However, you will currently spend more time responding to sudden and unexpected chaos in your home. Do not expect to maintain your normal clarity and rationality as the ground within you shifts rapidly. Liberating your emotional world will give you the foundation necessary to build your future empire.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
You have cosmic permission to blurt those shocking insights that consistently reside on the tip of your tongue. If you can remove your ego from the scene, you could potentially deliver the deeper truth that liberates the collective consciousness.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
As the pressures of your long-term goals continue to push you to your edge, remember to return to your values. Fiercely stick to your unique and creative otherworldly ways, but remember the saying that those who move mountains start by carrying small stones.
