FREE WILL ASTROLOGY – Week beginning July 30, 2021
Copyright by Rob Brezsny, FreeWillAstrology.com
LEO (July 23 to August 22):
Poet Leo Renée Ashley articulates a perspective that I recommend you adopt. She writes: “I am drawn to what flutters hazy around the edges, in the corner of my eye, just out of my safe sight. I want to share what I am routinely denied, or only suspected to exist. I long for a glimpse of what is beginning to happen. “With your thoughts as inspiration, I advise you to hunger for what you do not know and have not perceived. Expand your curiosity so that it becomes wildly insatiable in your quest to uncover emerging questions and raw truths. on the periphery of your consciousness.
VIRGO (from August 23 to September 22):
There are many things in your heart that you will never be able to tell another person, ”said the Virgo actor. Greta garbo (1905-1990). “It is not correct that you tell them,” he concluded. “You lower yourself, inside yourself, when you tell them.” I guess Greta was being melodramatic. My attitude is the opposite of hers. If you find allies who listen well and respect your vulnerability, you should enjoy telling them the secrets of your heart. Doing so enriches you, deepens you, and adds poignant new meanings to your primary mysteries. The next few weeks will be an auspicious time to seek this sage pleasure in abundance.
LIBRA (from September 23 to October 22):
Now is a great time to find effervescent socializing and conviviality gatherings and holiday celebrations. Surrounding yourself with lively people will absorb the exact influences you need. May I suggest you organize a fun event? If you do, you can send invitations that include the following highlights: “At my gathering, the featured flavors will be strawberry chocolate and unbelievably delicious. There will be magical vibes and mysterious mood enhancers. Liberating conversations will be encouraged. Unpredictable disclosures will be honored. If possible, vent your fears and anxieties in a random parking lot before you arrive. “
ESCORPION (from October 23 to November 21):
Scorpio Author Andrew Sean Greer writes: “As the Japanese will tell you, one can train a rose to grow through anything, even to grow through a nautilus, but it must be done tenderly.” I think it’s a vivid metaphor for one of your main tasks in the next few weeks, Scorpio: how to carefully care for delicate and beautiful things while pursuing them to mature in ways that highlight their solidity and resilience. I believe that you now have an additional capacity to exercise love to help things flourish.
SAGITTARIUS (from November 22 to December 21):
Suggested Experiments to Try Soon: 1. Recall a moment in the past when you were touched by the sudden realization that you and a person you had recently met were destined to fall in love. 2. Remember a moment in the past when you kissed someone for the first time. 3. Remember a moment in the past when someone told you that they loved you for the first time or when you told someone that you loved them for the first time. 4. Allow the feelings from the first three experiments to permeate your life for five days. See through the eyes of the person you were during those earlier breakthroughs. Treat the whole world as expansive and expectant as you did during those times.
CAPRICORN (from December 22 to January 19):
Capricorn poet Kenneth rexroth he was shirtless as he strolled down a country lane. To his delightful amazement, a fritillary butterfly landed on his shoulder, fluttered, landed again, fluttered, performed this dance numerous times. Nothing like this had ever happened to him. Later he wrote: “I feel like my flesh / Suddenly has turned sweet / With a metamorphosis / Kept a secret even to me.” In the next few days, I hope at least a similar experience for you. Here’s your homework: What sweet metamorphoses may be taking place within you, perhaps without having reached your conscious awareness yet?
AQUARIUS (from January 20 to February 18):
“Every time we don’t say what we want to say, we die.” Aquarius artist and singer Yoko Ono said that. I will add one more nuance: every time we are not aware of the feeling, the experience or the situation that we want, we are dying. And these will be key themes now that you have entered the “I KNOW WHAT I WANT AND I KNOW HOW TO ASK FOR IT” phase of your cycle. The most healing and life-giving thing you can do for the next six weeks is to be precise about your wishes.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20):
In 1829, the Piscean author Victor hugo started working on his novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. However, he had other projects and, by September 1830, had made little progress in Hunchback. Increasingly impatient, his editor demanded that he finish the manuscript by February 1831. In response, Hugo practically barricaded himself in his room to force himself to meet the deadline. He even locked his clothes in a closet to avoid going out. For the next five months, she only wore a gray shawl as she worked non-stop. His ploy worked! I recommend that you consider trying a somewhat less rigorous trick to bolster your self-discipline in the next few weeks. There is no need to entrench yourself in your fortress. But I hope you have fun taking strict measures.
ARIES (March 21 to April 19):
What does * feel real * mean? Some people have a hard time doing that. They have such misconceptions about who they are that they rarely feel real. Others are so distracted by trivial longings that they can never afford to settle into the exquisite sense of being at home to feel real. For those lucky enough to regularly experience this precious blessing, feeling real is not a vague concept. It is a vivid sensation of being aware in your own body. When we feel real, we respond spontaneously, enjoy playing games, and rejoice in the privilege of being alive. After studying your astrological potentials, Aries, I suspect that you now have a greater capacity to feel real.
TAURUS (from April 20 to May 20):
When I was a child, author Valerie Andrews He visited his secret sanctuary at sunset every day for seven years. He lay on the ground among birch trees and fragrant privet plants, feeling “the steady, rhythmic rhythm of the earth” as he enjoyed the fading light. I would love for you to enjoy the revitalizing power of such a sanctuary. The decisions you must make will become clear as you communicate with what Andrews calls “a root-shaped navel in the dark heart of the earth.” Do you know such a place? If not, I suggest you find or create one.
GEMINI (from May 21 to June 20):
I suspect that his immediate future will be a mosaic of evocative fragments. You might be annoyed and entertained by a series of intermittent rides, or a variety of pretty decorations, or a riot of tasks that seem at least worth doing. Chances are high that they will eventually come together in a crazy quilt unit; they will be woven into a pattern that has an unexpected meaning. In the spirit of the spicy variety, I offer three quotes that may not seem helpful yet, but will soon be. 1. “Isn’t it possible that wanting something, really wanting it, is a way of having it?” – Galway kinnell 2. “It’s not half as important to know what to feel.” – Rachel Carson 3. “Like all explorers, we are drawn to discovering what’s out there without yet knowing if we have the courage to face it.” – Pema Chödrön
CANCER (from June 21 to July 22):
A Tumblr blogger named Cece writes, “The fact that you can soak bread in sugar, eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla, then butter a pan and deep-fry the bread to make a meal is really liberating.” I agree. And I share it with you in hopes of encouraging you to indulge in other common actions that will make you feel spacious and uninhibited. You are in a phase of your astrological cycle where you will thrive by making day-to-day details that excite your lust for life. Enjoying the little things to the fullest will be an excellent strategy for success.
