FREE WILL ASTROLOGY – Week beginning June 17, 2021
Copyright by Rob Brezsny, FreeWillAstrology.com
GEMINI (from May 21 to June 20):
“I remember wishing I could boil like water and purify myself again,” writes poet Jeffrey McDaniel. Judging by current astrological omens, Gemini, I think you could go back to being reasonably pure without having to endure a test like being boiled like water. Do you have ideas on how to proceed? Here are mine: 1. Spend 15 minutes alone. With your eyes closed, sitting in a comfortable chair, forgive everyone who has hurt you. Do the best you can. Perfection is not necessary. 2. Spend another 15 minutes alone, same deal. Forgive yourself for everything you have done and consider mistakes. Perfection is not required. 3. Spend another 15 minutes alone. Imagine what it would be like to unconditionally love yourself exactly the way you are. 4. Spend another 15 minutes alone. Remember ten amazing moments you enjoyed between the ages of five and 13.
CANCER (from June 21 to July 22):
On June 23, 1940, Wilma rudolph He was born prematurely into a family that already had 19 other children. During his childhood he suffered from pneumonia, scarlet fever, polio and infantile paralysis. The last two illnesses damaged her left leg and she wore a brace until she was 12 years old. However, when she was in high school, she had become a very good athlete. Eventually, she competed in the Olympics, where she won four medals and earned the title of “fastest woman in history.” I propose that we name her as your official role model for the remainder of 2021. May she inspire you to overcome and transcend your own personal adversity.
LEO (July 23 to August 22):
Born in leo PL Travers wrote children’s books about Mary Poppins, a nanny with magical powers. She was completely familiar with folklore, ancient myths, and the occult. Mary Poppins’ character, Travers said, was a version of the Mother Goddess. But in her writing process, she was primarily inspired by what she considered the vast dark nothingness. She wrote: “I have become convinced that the great treasure to possess is the unknown.” To generate his stories, he listened to silence and emptiness. I recommend that you emulate his approach when creating the next chapter in your life story.
VIRGO (from August 23 to September 22):
Virgo poet Melissa broder writes: “Romantic obsession is my first language. I live in a world of fantasies, infatuations and love poems ”. I wouldn’t normally authorize you to share their perspective, but I will now. Astrological omens suggest that you have something important to learn if you are more in love and adored than usual. If you say YES to the Deluge of Longing, you will gain access to a type of power that will prove very useful to you in the months to come.
LIBRA (from September 23 to October 22):
Libra author Oscar Wilde He refuted the misconception that Libras are weak, too eager to compromise, and inclined to overthink everything. His writing had wit and style, and his life was vivid and daring. He wrote: “There are moments when one has to choose between living one’s life, fully, totally, completely, or dragging on some false, superficial and degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands.” I suspect one of those crucial moments will come soon. Be like Wilde!
ESCORPION (from October 23 to November 21):
Philosopher Simone weil wrote: “Only the light that continually falls from the sky gives the tree the energy to push powerful roots towards the earth. The tree actually has its roots in the sky. “As it strengthens its foundations in the coming months, as it deepens its roots, I hope you keep Weil’s brilliant observation in mind. Like a tree, the food that will help you Developing the stamina, strength and structure you need will come as you turn to the brightest, warmest, and loftiest sources of inspiration.
SAGITTARIUS (from November 22 to December 21):
To be in a wonderful alignment with cosmic rhythms, you won’t just walk, and you certainly won’t trudge. Rather, you will wander and wander and wander. You will strut, you will wander and you will prowl. Likewise, you won’t just talk, and you certainly won’t murmur or complain. Instead, you will joke, rhapsodize, improvise, seduce, and write lyrics. You understand me? He won’t just laugh, he’ll laugh, laugh, and laugh out loud. In other words, Sagittarius, you are empowered to infuse everything you do with style, panache, and imagination.
CAPRICORN (from December 22 to January 19):
Congratulations on being such a duty-bound and level-headed adult. May you continue to exercise your tenacious persistence and workhorse attitude as long as you perform important tasks, help you feel useful, and don’t make you sick. But if you are tempted to stray from the path of sacrifice anytime soon, know that you will not offend any god or demon. Nor will you incur karmic debt. In fact, I think you have cosmic space to dabble in joy for a while. You should feel free to experiment with fun and games that appeal to your sense of wonder.
AQUARIUS (from January 20 to February 18):
“I can hardly conceive of a kind of beauty in which there is no melancholy,” wrote the poet Charles Baudelaire. What?! That makes no sense. I am aware of millions of beautiful things that are not tinged with melancholy. California’s Mount Shasta in late spring twilight, for example. The Guggenheim Museum in New York City, a beautiful gleaming building designed by genius architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The Marmore waterfalls in central Italy. The gardens of the painter Claude Monet in Normandy, France. I mention this, Aquarius, because I hope life brings you a flood of non-melancholic beauty in the days ahead. Take advantage of this grace to restore your confidence in life.
PISCES (from February 19 to March 20):
Pisces author Cesar Aira praise the courage to escape memories. He writes: “Forgetting is like a great alchemy free of secrets, which transforms everything in the present.” I’d love to see you enjoy alchemy like this in the next few weeks, dear Pisces. It is a propitious time to lose at least some of the inhibitions and limitations that you think you must accept because of what happened in the past. As Aira says, oblivion “turns our lives into something visible and tangible that we hold in our hands, without hidden folds in the past.”
ARIES (March 21 to April 19):
Aries playwright Tennessee Williams He was honest about the deception he got into while composing his entertaining masterpieces. “I don’t want realism,” he exclaimed. “I want magic! Yes, yes, magic! I try to give it to people. “I fully support you, Aries, if you want that to be your goal in the next three weeks. In my astrological opinion, you and the people in your life have more than a slight need for magic. Your ability to thriving depends on everyone getting large doses of magic.
TAURUS (from April 20 to May 20):
There is a sign on my wall that says, “Avoid the tragic magic triad: taking things too personally, taking things too seriously, and taking things too literally.” The tagline refers to trivial and transitory issues, like the new dent made in my car by a hit-and-run driver in the Whole Foods parking lot, or the bad review of my book on Amazon.com, or the $ 18. that a certain Etsy seller tricked me, or the joke about the size of my nose that a supposed friend made on Twitter. Based on my reading of astrological omens, Taurus, you would benefit right now from meditating on things like these that you take too seriously, personally and literally. Here it is Don Miguel Ruiz: “There is a great deal of freedom you get when you don’t take anything personally.”
