    Part of the Holy Whole

    astrolRaising flags of national and tribal distinction often ruffles my Aquarian sensibilities regarding our collective humanity. Tribalism can refer to a group attitude of undeserved pride and superiority based solely on identification with a group. Dr. Seuss’s Star-bellied Sneetches learned this lesson well, “…until neither the plain nor the Star-Bellies knew whether this one was that one…or that one was this one…or which one was what one…or what one was who.” As we raise our rainbow flag rightfully coloring and claiming our place within the world, and gather with our community in celebration, heed the Sneectches’ wisdom by understanding that we are all in this together. Any group or sub group that has suffered at the hands of tribalism is potentially equipped with the necessary empathy that will continue to grow humanity’s capacity to maintain our beautifully unique and varied colors, while holding a larger truth that recognizes we are part of the Holy Whole.

    PISCES (February 19–March 20) Take a little more subjective and personalized view of existence while you navigate the realms of the sacred “I”.
