FREE WILL ASTROLOGY – Week beginning March 5, 2021
Copyright by Rob Brezsny, FreeWillAstrology.com
PISCES (from February 19 to March 20):
For you Pisceans, March is the month of love for yourself bigger, better and bolder. To prepare you for this festival, I provide you with two inspirational quotes. 1.) “If you are not good at loving yourself, you will have a hard time loving someone, as you will be bothered by the time and energy you give to another person that you are not even giving yourself.” –Barbara De Angelis 2.) “Loving yourself does not mean being self-centered or narcissistic, or putting others down. Rather, it means welcoming yourself as the most honored guest in your own heart, a guest worthy of respect, a lovable companion. “-Margo and
ARIES (March 21 to April 19):
In late April 1969, Cambridgeshire, UK, hosted the first Thriplow Daffodil weekend – a flower show featuring 80 varieties of daffodils. In the intervening years, climate change has raised the average temperature 3.24 degrees Fahrenheit. So the flowers have been progressively blooming at the beginning of each year, forcing the festival to be delayed. The last pre-Covid show in 2019 was March 23-24, a month earlier than the original. Let’s use this as a metaphor for the changing conditions in your world. I invite you to take an inventory of how your environment has changed and what you could do to ensure that you are adapting to the new conditions.
TAURUS (from April 20 to May 20):
Author Leo Buscaglia He told us that among the ancient Egyptians, two specific questions were key to assessing whether a human life was well lived. They were “Did you bring joy?” and “Did you find joy?” In keeping with your current astrological potentials, I invite you to ponder these questions. And if you discover that something is missing in the joy that you bring and the joy that you find, now is a very favorable time to make corrections.
GEMINI (from May 21 to June 20):
Ready to take a more proactive role in shaping what happens in the environments you share with your cohorts? Do you have an interest in exercising leadership to improve the well-being of the groups that are important to you? Now is an excellent time to take courageous actions that will lift the spirits and increase the fortunes of allies whose destinies intermingle with yours. I hope you are a role model for the art of pleasing yourself while serving others.
CANCER (from June 21 to July 22):
During World War II, the Japanese island of Ōkunoshima housed a factory that manufactured poison gas for use in the chemical warfare against China. These days it is a tourist attraction famous for its thousands of wild but friendly bunnies. I’d love to see you start a comparable transmutation in the next few months, dear Cancer: turning bad news into good news, twisted darkness into interesting light, soullessness in shock. Now is a good time to step up your efforts.
LEO (July 23 to August 22):
“Scars speak for you,” writes the author. Gena Showalter. “They say that you are strong and that you have survived something that could have killed others.” In that spirit, dear Leo, and in keeping with astrological omens, I invite you to empower your scars to express interesting truths about yourself in the coming weeks. Allow them to show how resilient you have been and how well you have mastered the lessons that your past suffering has made available to you. Give your scars permission to be tremendously eloquent about the transformations you’ve been so courageous in bringing about.
VIRGO (from August 23 to September 22):
According to novelist Doris Lessing, “Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was someone else that I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who was kind to me.” She hinted that hardly anyone has such an experience, or that it is so rare that it is always pulling on our minds, always a source of insatiable longing. But I am more optimistic than Lessing. In my opinion, the precious exchange you describe is not all that impossible. And I think it will be especially possible for you in the coming weeks. I suspect that you are entering a grace period to be listened to, understood and treated with kindness. Here’s the kicker: For the best results, you have to candidly look it up.
LIBRA (from September 23 to October 22):
“How much to explore and discard before you get to the bare flesh of feeling?” wrote the composer Claude Debussy. In the weeks to come, I hope you will regard his words as an enticement to do whatever you can to get to the bare flesh of your feelings. Your ideas are fine. Your rational mind is a blessing. But for the foreseeable future, what you need most is to deepen your relationship with your emotions. Study them, please. Encourage them to express themselves. Respect their messages as gifts, even if you don’t necessarily act on them.
ESCORPION (from October 23 to November 21):
You may never wander through a dark forest alone or camp overnight on a remote beach or meet a mountain lion while climbing a glacier near the top of a rugged mountain. But there will always be a primeval wilderness within you: uncivilized lands and untamed creatures and elemental forces that are beyond your rational comprehension. That’s mostly a good thing! To be healthy and wise, you need to be in regular contact with raw nature, even if it is the one within you. The only time it can be a hindrance is if you try to deny its existence, thereby becoming rebellious and hostile. So don’t deny it! Especially now. (PS: To help with this task, try to remember your dreams at night. Keep a tape recorder or notebook and pen near your bed.)
SAGITTARIUS (from November 22 to December 21):
“What hurts a person the most,” wrote the philosopher. Friedrich Nietzsche, “It is working, thinking and feeling without inner need, without any deep personal desire, without pleasure, like a mere automaton of duty.” Once a year, I think everyone, including me, should meditate on that quote. Once a year, we must evaluate if we live according to the code of our soul; if we follow the path with heart; if we are doing what we came to earth to achieve. In my astrological opinion, the next two weeks will be your special time to participate in this exploration.
CAPRICORN (from December 22 to January 19):
What are your edges, Capricorn? What aspects of your identity are covered by two different categories? Which of your beliefs take seemingly opposite positions? In your relationships with other people, what are the taboo subjects? Where are the boundaries that you can sometimes cross and sometimes cannot cross? I hope you ponder these questions in the weeks ahead. In my astrological opinion, you are prepared to explore the edges, deepen your relationship with your edges, and use your edges to heal and educate and cultivate intimacy with your allies. As author Ali smith says: “The edges are magic; there is a kind of forbidden magic at the borders of things, always a crossing ceremony, even if we ignore it or don’t realize it. “
AQUARIUS (from January 20 to February 18):
According to intermediate artist Sidney Pink, “The idea of divine inspiration and an aha moment is largely a fantasy.” What the hell is he talking about ?! That’s fake news, in my opinion. In the course of my creative career, I have been blessed with thousands of divine inspirations and aha moments. But I acknowledge that my progress has been made possible by “hard work and unwavering dedication,” praised by Sidney Pink. Now here is the climax of your oracle: You Aquarians are in a phase where you should be doing the hard work and unwavering dedication that will pave the way for divine inspirations and moments later this year.
