FREE WILL ASTROLOGY – Week starting August 6, 2021
Copyright by Rob Brezsny, FreeWillAstrology.com
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
The subsequent two months will probably be a propitious time for you and your intimate allies to develop nearer by harnessing the ability of your imaginations. I urge you to be creative in dreaming up methods to teach and entertain one another. Search frisky adventures collectively that can delight you. Right here’s a poem by Vyacheslav Ivanov that I hope will stimulate you: “We’re two flames in a midnight forest. We’re two meteors that fly at night time, a two-pointed arrow of 1 destiny. We’re two steeds whose bridle is held by one hand. We’re two eyes of a single gaze, two quivering wings of 1 dream, two-voiced lips of single mysteries. We’re two arms of a single cross.”
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):
Virgo non secular writer Don Miguel Ruiz urges us to not take something personally. He says that if somebody treats us disrespectfully, it’s virtually actually as a result of they’re affected by psychological wounds that make them act in vulgar, insensitive methods. Their assaults have little to do with what’s true about us. I agree with him, and can add this vital caveat. Even in the event you chorus from taking such abuses personally, it doesn’t imply it is best to tolerate them. It doesn’t imply it is best to preserve that individual in your life or enable them to bully you sooner or later. I think these are vital themes so that you can ponder proper now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
“Individuals who really feel deeply, reside deeply, and love deeply are destined to undergo deeply,” writes poet Juansen Dizon. To that romanticized, juvenile nonsense, I say: NO! WRONG! Individuals who really feel and reside and love deeply are extra emotionally clever than of us who reside on the floor—and are due to this fact much less fragile. The deep ones are prone to be psychologically adept; they’ve abilities at liberating themselves from the smothering crush of their issues. The deep ones even have entry to wealthy non secular sources that guarantee their struggling is a supply of transformative instructing—and barely a reason for defeat. Have you ever guessed that I’m describing you as you can be within the coming weeks?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
Professor of psychology Ethan Kross tells us there will be wholesome, artistic types of envy. “Simply as starvation tells us we have to eat,” he writes, “the sensation of envy may present us what’s lacking from our lives that basically issues to us.” The trick is to not interpret envy as a adverse emotion, however to see it as helpful data that exhibits us what we would like. In my astrological opinion, that’s a useful observe so that you can deploy within the coming days. So pay shut consideration to the twinges of envy that pop into your consciousness. Harness that unstable stuff to inspire your self as you make plans to get the very expertise or reward you envy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Poet Walt Whitman bragged that he was “massive.” He stated, “I include multitudes.” One critic in contrast him to “a complete continent with its waters, with its bushes, with its animals.” Responding to Whitman, Sagittarian poet Gertrud Kolmar uttered an equally grandiose boast. “I too am a continent,” she wrote. “I include mountains never-reached, scrubland unpenetrated, pond bay, river-delta, salt-licking coast-tongue.” That’s how I’m imagining you lately, pricey Sagittarius: as unexplored territory: as frontier land teeming with undiscovered mysteries. I really like how expansive you might be as you open your thoughts and coronary heart to new self-definitions. I really like the way you’re keen to danger being unknowable for some time as you wander out within the path of the longer term.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
Poet Ezra Pound wrote a letter to novelist James Joyce that included the next passage: “You might be f**king with my head, and thus far I’ve been having fun with it. The place is the crime?” I carry this up, Capricorn, as a result of I consider the approaching weeks will probably be prime time so that you can have interaction with attention-grabbing souls who mess along with your head in pleasant methods. You want a pleasant jolt or two: a collection of galvanizing prods; dialogs that catalyze you to attempt new methods of pondering and seeing; energetic exchanges that encourage you to experiment.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
Blogger Mandukhai Munkhbaatar affords recommendation on the humanities of intimate communion. “Don’t fall in love solely with a physique or with a face,” she tells us. “Don’t fall in love with the concept of being in love.” She additionally desires you to know that it’s greatest on your long-term well being and happiness in the event you don’t search cozy involvement with an individual who’s afraid of your insanity, or with somebody who, after you combat, disappears and refuses to speak. I approve of all these strategies. Any others you’d add? It’s a good section to get clearer concerning the qualities of individuals you need and don’t need as your allies.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):
I gave my readers homework, asking them to reply the query, “What’s your favourite rule to interrupt?” In response, Laura Grolla despatched these ideas: “My favourite rule to interrupt is an unwritten one: that we should all stress and attempt for excellence. I’ve provide you with a stress-busting mantra, ‘It’s OK to be OK.’ In my OKness, I’ve found the refined frontier of contentment, which is huge and largely unexplored. OKness permits me to not compete for consideration, however fairly to concentrate to others. I really like OKness for the humor and deep, renewing sleep it has generated. Better of all, OKness permits me to be fortunately getting old fairly than anxiously sizzling.” I carry this to your consideration, Pisces, as a result of I feel the approaching weeks will probably be a good time so that you can examine and embody the stress-free mysteries of OKness.
ARIES (March 21-April 19):
Filmmaker Federico Fellini had an sudden definition of happiness. He stated it was “with the ability to converse the reality with out hurting anybody.” I think you’ll have considerable entry to that sort of happiness within the coming weeks, Aries. I’ll go even additional: You should have additional energy to talk the reality in ways in which heal and uplift folks. My recommendation to you, due to this fact, is to rejoice and indulge your skill. Be daring in expressing the fullness of what’s attention-grabbing to you.
TAURUS (April 20-Could 20):
“Look for a very long time at what pleases you, and longer nonetheless at what pains you,” wrote the novelist Colette. What?! Was she making a perverse joke? That’s depraved recommendation, and I hope you undertake it solely on uncommon events. Actually, the precise reverse is the wholesome solution to reside—particularly for you within the coming weeks. Take a look at what pains you, sure. Don’t lose sight of what your issues and wounds are. However please, for the sake of your goals, for the good thing about your non secular and psychological well being, look longer at what pleases you, energizes you, and conjures up you.
GEMINI (Could 21-June 20):
If you happen to deepen your affection for butterflies and hummingbirds, I’ll adore it. If you happen to resolve you need the dragonfly or bumblebee or lark to be your spirit creature, I’ll approve. You virtually all the time profit from cultivating relationships with swift, nimble, and energetic influences—and that’s very true lately. So give your self full permission to experiment with the superpower of playful curiosity. You’re most definitely to thrive while you’re zipping round in quest of zesty ripples and sprightly rhythms.
CANCER (June 21-July 22):
Life is exhibiting you truths about what you aren’t, what you don’t want, and what you shouldn’t attempt for. That’s auspicious, though it could initially really feel unsettling. I urge you to welcome these revelations with gratitude. They are going to show you how to tune in to the nuances of what it means to be radically genuine.
