FREE WILL ASTROLOGY – Week beginning September 17, 2021
Copyright by Rob Brezsny, FreeWillAstrology.com
VIRGO (from August 23 to September 22):
“There is nothing wrong with reading a book that you love over and over again,” writes the Virgo author. Gail Carson Levine. In addition to that encouragement, I offer you the following authorizations: There is nothing wrong with seeking a pleasure that you love over and over again; or doing a necessary task that you love over and over again; or perform an energizing ritual that you like over and over again; or express the key truths you love over and over again. And these permissions will be especially crucial for you to rejoice over the next few weeks, dear Virgo: because it is a time when conscious repetition will be one of your strengths and a key to stimulating the deepening experiences you need.
LIBRA (from September 23 to October 22):
“Yes I am a bitch and a phony. Ain’t nobody who wants a bitch and a phony? Libra Author Graham greene wrote that in his novel The end of the Affair. Here’s my extrapolation: I think every one of us, including me, is a bitch and a phony from time to time. We all go through periods when we are not at our best, when we are not living up to our own high standards. Could you have recently flirted with such a phase? If so, the cosmos has authorized me to absolve him. You are free to claim all your exquisite beauty. And if you haven’t been a bitch and a phony, congratulations. It means you’ve weathered a twisted storm.
ESCORPION (from October 23 to November 21):
The poet Yves Olade writes: “I began to think of people as wounds that do not heal.” To me, that idea is ridiculously cynical. Also, I think it’s wrong for most of us. The truth is that humans have a natural instinct for healing. They are predisposed to attracting experiences that could help them recover from difficulties, that could teach them the healing lessons they need. I think this will be especially true for you in the next few weeks. (P.S: Dr. Andrew Weil writes: “Any level of biological organization that we examine, from DNA to the most complex body systems, shows the capacity for self-diagnosis, removal of damaged structures and regeneration of new structures”).
SAGITTARIUS (from November 22 to December 21):
Research suggests that most people think that everyone else has more fun than they do. But I guess only a small percentage of Sagittarius feel this way. He is usually more alert for fun and has an intuitive ability to track fun. Also, you often take the initiative to cause fun. You understand that you have a responsibility to generate fun and you have a talent for generating it. All of these capabilities will serve you well in the coming weeks. I recommend that you elevate your mastery of the art and science of having fun to a new level. Be the champion of fun and games for your entire circle.
CAPRICORN (from December 22 to January 19):
I am not participating in empty flattery when I say that you are different from anyone else who has ever lived in the history of the world. Your absolute uniqueness is a fundamental fact. You may not ponder this truth very often. You may feel that it is not helpful to think about it or that it is irrelevant to your daily decision making. But I propose that in the next three weeks you give it a central place in your understanding of your destiny. Let it influence everything you do. Make it an important factor in your decision making.
AQUARIUS (from January 20 to February 18):
Welcome back from the underworld, Aquarius. I hope your time wandering the labyrinthine twilight has brought you as many fascinating mysteries as it does confusing questions. I trust that you took advantage of the smoky riddles and dilemmas to strengthen the wisdom of your soul. I suspect that while his travels may have seemed difficult to understand at times, they have provided him with an excellent education that will serve him well for the foreseeable future.
PISCES (from February 19 to March 20):
On Oscar Wildenovel The Picture of Dorian Gray, the main character tells a friend: “You filled me with a wild desire to know everything about life.” Is there a person who can inspire you like this, Pisces? Perhaps a person from your past with whom you have lost contact? Or is there a person lurking on the outskirts of your life who might stimulate you to have those feelings? Now is a good time to look for these influences. I advise you to be bold in your quest to partner with allies who will stimulate your lust for life and teach you crucial lessons. (PS: For more credit, make plenty of use of another theme from Wilde’s book: “The pursuit of beauty is the real secret of life.”)
ARIES (March 21 to April 19):
“Books are mirrors: you only see in them what you already have inside,” wrote the author. Carlos Zafòn Ruiz. Let’s go one step further: “Other people are mirrors: you only see in them what you already have inside.” And even more. “The whole world is a mirror: you only see in it what you already have inside.” Have fun playing with these meditations, Aries. The next few weeks will be a fertile time to explore how your experiences reflect the activity that occurs in your own brain.
TAURUS (from April 20 to May 20):
Some spiritual teachers say things like “I am not my body” or “This body is not me.” I do not understand that. It is an insult and contempt. He despises the sublime beauty of our bodies and the inspired role of our bodies in educating our souls. I agree that we are not ONLY our bodies. I agree that a part of us is eternal, not limited to flesh and blood. But hell yeah, I am my body. You are your body. It is a glorious aspect of who we are. It is a miraculous creation that has taken millions of years to evolve into the masterpiece that it is. So yes, you are your body, and yes, this body is you. I hope you love your body. They are in awe of it. They are happy to be inside it. If something is missing in this department, now is an excellent time to make corrections.
GEMINI (from May 21 to June 20):
“I know someone who kisses like a flower opens,” wrote the poet. Mary Oliver. I would love for you Gemini to have that experience. Astrological omens suggest that it is more likely than usual to happen soon. Other experiences with a better than average probability of unfolding in the next few days: allies talking about intimate subjects in ways that resemble the opening of a flower; partners who co-create with you in ways that resemble a flower opening; spirit helpers who offer guidance and help in ways that resemble the opening of a flower.
CANCER (from June 21 to July 22):
“I lie to myself all the time, but I never believe myself,” writes the author of Cancer. SE Hinton. Say ah! I myself, as a Cancerian, confess the same crime. But I expect a change in the next few weeks. I suspect the Crabs will be inspired to cut out the lies we try to get our way. You know what that means, right? We will be more inclined to trust ourselves, as we are more likely to tell ourselves the truth. Our decisions will be astute and our personal care will be rigorous. Hallelujah!
LEO (July 23 to August 22):
My object in this horoscope it’s stimulating your imagination in a way that no one else in your life will. You need an influence like me, who does not belong in your inner circle, who gives you friendly and fun shocks that take you out of habitual ways of thinking. Here we go. 1. If you had to store seven parts of your soul in seven objects, what objects would they be? 2. If you could change one thing about your past, what would it be? 3. If you were a character in a fairy tale or movie, who would you be? 4. If you could travel to a place that taught you what you need to know most, where would it be? 5. If you had a magical animal as a special ally, what animal would it be? 6. If you could sing a song with amazing healing power for someone you care about, what song would it be? 7. If you could improve your relationship with any part of your body, what would it be?
