ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your first assignment is to practice feeling that everywhere you go you are standing on holy ground. Capitalize that phrase in your imagination—"I AM STANDING ON HOLY GROUND"—as you move through the world. Your second assignment, which may at first seem unrelated, is to kick your evil twin's ass. Do it tenderly and compassionately, with full awareness that both you and your evil twin are standing on holy ground. But don't stop kicking until you convince your evil twin to take greater responsibility for his or her personal share of the world's darkness.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): "Which kind of person are
you?" asks editor Paul Somerson. "Are you a spineless lickspittle
wage-slave cog toiling away to make someone else wealthy, destined to lead a
bleak anonymous Wal-Mart life of relative poverty? Or are you someone with guts
and brains who wants to get out from under the thumb of capricious,
unappreciative bosses, create something new, and reap financial rewards?"
Personally, I think he's engaging in a bit of hype. There's lots of fine
territory to stake out in-between the extremes he describes. Still, it's a good
idea to push and prod you with his provocative question. You're in a phase when
you have more potential than usual to change your livelihood for the better.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): "If love is a drug, I guess we're all sober," mourns Nerina Pallot in her song "Everybody's Gone to War." Your two-part assignment stems from that formulation. First, you should experiment with the hypothesis that love is in a sense a drug. Meditate on the fact that it literally changes your body chemistry and affects the way your mind functions. Second, make sure you're not sober. Get yourself high on love in every way you can imagine, whether that means giving generously of yourself, encouraging the best in everyone, expressing your beauty extravagantly, or making it easy for others to adore you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Move the furniture around. In fact, why not move some of it right through the front door and out of your life? If we're lucky, this will get you in the mood to launch a purge of everything that no longer belongs under your roof. Maybe you could throw a Simplification Party, complete with an exorcism. Or corral your friends for a haul-it-all-away caravan to the garbage dump. I don't care how you do it, Cancerian. Just get rid of all knick-knacks, wall hangings, funny mirrors, broken dreams, balls and chains, and formerly cute mementoes that have lost their cuteness. It's time to liberate your home.
