FREE WILL ASTROLOGY – Week beginning April 30, 2021
Copyright by Rob Brezsny, FreeWillAstrology.com
TAURUS (from April 20 to May 20):
In his poem “Mirror”, the Taurus poet Halina Poświatowska wrote: “I am stunned by the beauty of my body.” I applaud your blatant admiration and love for your most valuable possession. I wish more of us could genuinely feel that same adoration for our own bodies. And in keeping with current astrological omens, I recommend that you find a way to do it right now. It is time to improve your enthusiasm for being on such a magnificent boat. Even if you are not in perfect health, you perform amazing wonders every minute of every day. I hope it increases your appreciation for his miraculous abilities and increases your commitment to treating him like the treasure that he is.
GEMINI (from May 21 to June 20):
Gemini poet Buddy wakefield writes that after the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, “the only structure still standing in the devastated Malacca village [in Malaysia] it was a statue of Mahatma Gandhi. I want to be able to stand like this. “I hope you enjoy that kind of stability and resilience in the weeks to come, my dear. You won’t have to endure a metaphorical tsunami, thank the Goddess, but you may have to hold your ground through a Violent uproar or turbulence Here’s a tip: The best approach is not to be stiff and immobile like a statue, but rather to be flexible and willing to sway.
CANCER (from June 21 to July 22):
No educator had offered a psychology class until the pioneering philosopher William James He did it in 1875. He knew a lot about human behavior. “Most people live in a very restricted circle of their potential selves,” he wrote. “They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of the resources of their soul in general, just like a person who, of all his bodily organism, should get used to using only his little finger.” I’m going to make an outlandish prediction here: I hope that in the coming months you will be better prepared than ever to expand your access to your consciousness, your resources, and your potentials. How could you start such an adventure? The first thing you need to do is set a vivid intention to do just that.
LEO (July 23 to August 22):
“Someone in me is suffering and fighting for freedom,” wrote the Greek author. Nikos Kazantzakis. To that melodramatic announcement, I answer, good for him! I’m glad that he was willing to go through misery and despair to escape misery and despair. But I also think it is important to point out that there are other viable approaches to the quest for liberation. For example, having plenty of fun and enjoying yourself deeply can be tremendously effective in such holy work. I suspect that in the coming weeks, Leo, the latter approach will accomplish much more for you than the former.
VIRGO (from August 23 to September 22):
Virgo novelist Christie Agatha he sold hundreds of millions of books and is the most translated author in history. Growing up, he had few children to associate with, so he created a host of imaginary friends to fill the void. They eventually became key players in her work as an author, helping her dream up stories. More than that: he just loved having those invisible characters around to keep him company. Even in his old age, he still associated with them. I bring this to your attention, Virgo, because now is a good time to make new imaginary friends or resurrect old ones. It would also be nice to call the guardian angels and ancestral spirits. How could they be of help and inspiration?
LIBRA (from September 23 to October 22):
“To rush the pain is to leave a classroom still in session,” says the Libra aphorist. Yahia Lababidi. On the other hand, he observes, “prolonging the pain is missing the next lesson.” If you’re right, the goal is to live with your pain just long enough, until you’ve learned the lessons and figure out how not to experience it again in the future, but no more. I suspect that turning point will come soon.
ESCORPION (from October 23 to November 21):
In her poem “Everyday”, the Scorpio poet Denise Levertov wrote: “Every day, every day I listen enough to fill a year of nights with questions.” I think it captures the expansive truth of his life in the weeks to come. You have entered a phase where the sheer abundance of interesting contributions can sometimes be overwhelming, yet enriching. You will hear, and hopefully be receptive to, many provocative stories, dynamic revelations, and unexpected truths. Be thankful for this generosity! Use it to transform whatever may be stuck, whatever needs a catalytic boost.
SAGITTARIUS (from November 22 to December 21):
I hope you are not too stressed these days. There has been pressure on you to adjust more than you might like, and I hope you have managed to find some relaxation amid the heaviness. But even if the inconvenience levels are deeper than you want, I have good news – it’s all for a good cause. Read the wise words of the author And millman, who describes the process in which he is halfway: “Every positive change, every leap to a higher level of energy and consciousness, involves a rite of passage. Every time we ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never encountered an exception. “
CAPRICORN (from December 22 to January 19):
We can safely say that the writer Anais Nin was a connoisseur of eros and sensuality. “Sex must be mixed with tears, laughter, words, promises, jealousy, envy, all the spices of fear, trips abroad, new faces, stories, dreams, fantasies, music.” In response to Nin’s litany, I’m inclined to say, “Damn, that’s a lot of environment and scaffolding to have in place. Must it always be so complicated? Based on my reading of the upcoming cosmic rhythms, you won’t need a wide variety of things in your quest for heartwarming orgasms, at least not in the next few weeks. Your ecstatic instinct will be fine-tuned.
AQUARIUS (from January 20 to February 18):
“One is always at home in the past,” wrote the author. Vladimir Nabokov. I agree. However, sometimes that is not good. It can lead us to run away from the challenges of the present moment and go into hiding and cowering and wallowing in nostalgia. But at other times, just being home in the past can lead to brilliant healing strategies. It could awaken in us a wise determination to refresh our spirits enjoying the deep comfort of feeling at home. I think the latter case is likely to be true for you in the next few weeks, Aquarius.
PISCES (from February 19 to March 20):
“Everything is not supposed to turn into something beautiful and lasting,” writes author Emery Allen. “Not everyone will stay forever.” Your message is good for you to consider right now. You are in a phase where transient impulses and temporary help may be exactly what you need the most. I suspect that your main task in the coming weeks is to make the most of the influences that are passing through your life. The catalysts that work best could be the ones that work only once and then disappear.
ARIES (March 21 to April 19):
Poet Allen ginsberg He desperately noted that many people want MORE MORE MORE LIFE, but they go astray because they allow their desire for MORE MORE MORE LIFE to fixate on material things: machines, possessions, gadgets, and status symbols. Ginsberg revered different kinds of longings: good feelings, meaningful experiences, moving breakthroughs, deep awareness, and all kinds of love. In accordance with astrological potentials, Aries, I give you the go-ahead in the coming weeks to be more greedy for things in the second category.
