LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I hope that one day you will learn how to give all the extraordinary love you have to offer. Another one of my greatest desires for you is that you will cultivate, earn, and seize all the freedom you need in order to become yourself completely. To my great pleasure, you've recently begun to tune in to the possibility that these two goals might be extremely fun for you. During the coming weeks their hold on your imagination should heat up considerably. In 2007, I hope they'll become your modus operandi, your Weltanschauung, and your raison d'être.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In one of Aesop's fables, a donkey
becomes enamored of the crickets' serenades. Longing to produce the same sound
himself, he goes to a cricket for advice. "What kind of food gives you
that sweet-sounding voice?" he asks. The cricket says, "My food is
the air and the dew." The donkey then begins a new diet, hoping that by
eating nothing but air and dew he too will be able to make beautiful, whirring
melodies. It doesn't happen, of course. The donkey merely starves. Let this be
your teaching story for the coming week, Virgo. Sing your own song with your
own voice, whether that sounds like a hee-haw or a warble. And get the exact
nurturing that will help you sing your own song with your own voice, not the
nurturing that helps others sing their special tunes.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): As a general rule, standing your ground and dealing squarely with a problem is the best policy. But for you right now, escape is a viable option. In fact, I think that running away is actually preferable. All I ask, though, is that you choose a specific place to flee to, so that you're not just running from something but also running toward something. As long as you're driven solely by a big NO, in other words, dashing around will weaken you and aggravate the problem you're dodging. But if you're also motivated by a vivid YES, you'll find the strength and wisdom to make all the right moves.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Earth Island Journal says scientists have discovered natural ways to clean up old munitions sites. If you plant periwinkle and parrot-feather plants in soil that's been bombed with TNT, they'll soak up and neutralize the noxious stuff. Likewise, pondweed absorbs and transforms nitroglycerin in land where explosives have been detonated. I urge you to find the metaphorical equivalents of periwinkle, pondweed, and parrot-feather plants this week, Scorpio. It's a perfect moment to detoxify the places in your life where past battles left behind toxic debris.
