FREE WILL ASTROLOGY – Week beginning February 12, 2021
Copyright by Rob Brezsny, FreeWillAstrology.com
AQUARIUS (from January 20 to February 18):
I adopted some lines from the poet Walt whitman for you to use when writing a love note. Send it to a person you know and love, a person you want to know and love, or a person you will know and love in the future. Here it is: “We are oak trees growing in the hollows side by side. We are two fish swimming together. We are two predatory hawks, flying up and looking down. We are two clouds that pass overhead. We are seas mixing, two joyous waves rolling one over the other. We are snow, rain, cold, darkness. We go round and round until we get home again, nullifying everything but freedom and our own joy. “
PISCES (from February 19 to March 20):
“To heal is to touch with love what was previously touched by fear,” wrote the author. Stephen levine. I propose that you make this topic a key note for your best relationships in the coming days. What can you do to ease the anxiety and agitation of the people you care for? How could they do the same for you? If you play with the cosmic rhythms, you will have extraordinary power to drive away fear with love.
ARIES (March 21 to April 19):
Author Anton Chekhov He made a radical proposal: “Perhaps the feelings we experience when we are in love represent a normal state. Being in love shows people who they should be. “In keeping with astrological potentials, my dear dear Aries, I invite you to act as if Chekhov’s proposal is absolutely true for at least the next two weeks. Cheer up for a generous lust for Life Suppose your intelligence is at its peak when you express excited kindness and loving compassion.Be a source of caring feelings, joyful empathy, and nurturing ardor.
TAURUS (from April 20 to May 20):
The poet and filmmaker Jean Cocteau told the following story about the composer Taurus Erik satie (1866-1925). When Satie died, her old friends, many of whom were very skilled people, came to visit her apartment. There they discovered that all the letters they had sent him over the years were unopened. Satie had never read them! How sad that all that lively exchange was missed. Please don’t do anything remotely resembling such a lack of receptivity for the next several weeks, Taurus. In fact, do just the opposite: be as open as possible to commitment and influence. I understand that the pandemic limits your social interactions in some way. Just do the best you can.
GEMINI (from May 21 to June 20):
On behalf of cosmic omens, I demand that the important people in your life be trustworthy and generous to you in the weeks ahead. You can tell them I said it. Tell them that you are doing quite well, but that in order to turn quite well into very good, you need to increase their support and encouragement. Read them the following words from the author Alan Cohen: “Those who love you are not fooled by the mistakes you have made or the dark images you have of yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your integrity when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused. “
CANCER (from June 21 to July 22):
For a time, the poet Alfred de Musset (1810-1857) was the sexual partner of the Cancer novelist. George Sand (1804-1876), also known as Aurore Dupin. He said that after intense lovemaking sessions, he would fall asleep and wake up to find her sitting at his desk, absorbed in working on his next book. Perhaps the erotic exchange inspired your creativity? Consistent with current astrological potentials, I recommend that Sand reach out to you. Vigorous pleasure will coordinate well with hard work. Like deep release with strong focus. Like tender intimacy with clear thinking. (PS: I know that your options for pleasure and intimacy may be somewhat limited due to the pandemic. Use your wits and wits to do the best magic possible.)
LEO (July 23 to August 22):
Poet leo Warsan shire suggests: “Document the moments when you feel most in love with yourself: what are you wearing, who are you with, what are you doing. Recreate and repeat. “This would be an excellent exercise to do during this Valentine’s season. You are in a phase where you are likely to enhance your kindness and attract additional support simply by intensifying and refining the affective compassion you feel and express toward yourself.
VIRGO (from August 23 to September 22):
I wish the pandemic would give us a short break so we can celebrate Valentine’s season with the ultimate sensual revelry and outlandish displays of joyous tenderness. I wish we could tear off our masks and forget about social distancing and hug and kiss everyone who wants to be hugged and kissed. But that is not going to happen. If we hope to have the freedom to enjoy a lush festival of love and lust in the Valentine’s season in 2022, we must be cautious and in control now. And we’re all counting on you, Virgo, to show us how to be as wild and lyrically romantic as possible while still observing the necessary limitations. That is your special task.
LIBRA (from September 23 to October 22):
Author Raymond Carver wrote: “It should make us feel ashamed when we talk as if we know what we are talking about when we talk about love.” That strikes me as a harsh oversimplification. Personally, I think it’s fun and interesting to pretend that we know what we are talking about when we talk about love. And I think that will be especially true for you in the coming weeks. In my astrological opinion, you should talk about love extensively, boldly, and imaginatively. You should redefine what love means to you. You must re-evaluate how you express it and reconfigure the way it works in your life.
ESCORPION (from October 23 to November 21):
I am giving this horoscope to the psychologist John welwood. Your words are the medicine you need at this juncture in the evolution of intimacy. Study the following quote and interpret it in a way that helps illuminate your relationship to union: “A soul connection is a resonance between two people who respond to the essential beauty of each other’s individual nature, behind their facades, and that are they connect on this deeper level. . This kind of mutual recognition provides the catalyst for a powerful alchemy. It is a sacred alliance whose purpose is to help both partners discover and realize their deepest potentials. “
SAGITTARIUS (from November 22 to December 21):
Transform yourself with the sweetest challenge you can imagine. Give yourself a blessing that will force you to be smarter and wilder. Be dazzled as you dare to graduate from your story. Rejoice with a push to become your best self, your best self, your amazingly accomplished and masterful self. Ask yourself to jump the threshold of ordinary magic and enter the realm of spooky good magic. And if all that works out well, Sagittarius, direct a similar energy towards someone you care about. In other words, transform them with the sweetest challenge you can imagine. Challenge them to graduate from their story. And so on.
CAPRICORN (from December 22 to January 19):
I invite you to write a message for a person who you would like to be closer to and to whom you are sure would like to be closer to you. Get inspired by what the poet Clementine von Radics wrote to the man she was dating, telling him why she thought they could start living together. Here’s his note: “Because you texted me a haiku about the moon when you were drunk. Because you cried at the end of the movie Die hard On Christmas’ Eve. Because when I’m sick you bring me fruit, you kiss me on the mouth and hug me even if it’s disgusting. Because you bring me flowers for no reason, but on Valentine’s Day you gave me a bouquet of peanut butter cups from Reese. Because every time I show you a poem that I love, you’ve already read it. “
