Astrology Stuff

I’m not real­ly a “believ­er” in astrol­o­gy. I do think that, like many oth­er things, it can be used to bring things we “know” on some­how up to a con­scious lev­el of aware­ness so that we can exam­ine and make use of them. I don’t gen­er­al­ly both­er to check my horo­scope or any­thing like that, but I do get and enjoy Rob Brezs­ney’s Free Will Astrol­o­gy newslet­ter each week.

I know that my sun and moon and sev­er­al oth­er plan­ets are in Scor­pio, and that Tau­rus is my ris­ing sign. I’ve heard many times that when read­ing any kind of mass-pro­duced astrol­o­gy col­umn, you should look at your ris­ing sign as well as your sun sign, so I usu­al­ly do.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your assign­ment is to cre­ate a sym­bol­ic shield for your­self. You’re not in any phys­i­cal dan­ger, and hence you don’t need a lit­er­al trash can lid or piece of sheet met­al to hold in front of you; but in the com­ing week you’ll prob­a­bly need to safe­guard your­self against the metaphor­i­cal equiv­a­lent of rot­ten toma­toes being flung your way. Your assailants may not even be aware of how offen­sive their emo­tion­al garbage is or how much it could affect you. That’s all the more rea­son to sur­round your­self with your own per­son­al ver­sion of psy­chic protection.

Hmm. I’m not so good at shielding—I tend to block absolute­ly every­thing out, or let every­thing in. Maybe I should talk to James on this one because he’s an expert.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Start phas­ing out desires that lead you back­ward, Tau­rus. In oth­er words, renounce your long­ings to recre­ate out­mod­ed plea­sures from the past; dis­own the dri­ve to be some­one you once were or to have some­thing you once had; talk your­self out of your fas­ci­na­tion with feel­ings that keep you attached to dead-end goals; and escape any addic­tions you might have to sen­sa­tions that are irrel­e­vant to your future.

Hmm. I’m not sure where that one is going.
