Inspiration from Robert Brezsny's Astrology Newsletter

Dec 4, 2019

(I only posted 4 that I really liked).

ARIES (March 21-April 19):
In composing this oracle, I have called on the unruly wisdom of Vivienne Westwood. She's the fashion designer who incorporated the punk esthetic into mainstream styles. Here are four quotes by her that will be especially suitable for your use in the coming weeks.
- 1. "I disagree with everything I used to say."
- 2. "The only possible effect one can have on the world is through unpopular ideas."
- 3. "Intelligence is composed mostly of imagination, insight, and things that have nothing to do with reason."
- 4. "I'm attracted to people who are really true to themselves and who are always trying to do something that makes their life more interesting."

CANCER (June 21-July 22):
Try saying this, and notice how it feels: "For the next 17 days, I will make ingenious efforts to interpret my problems as interesting opportunities that offer me the chance to liberate myself from my suffering and transform myself into the person I aspire to become." Now speak the following words and see what thoughts and sensations get triggered: "For the next 17 days, I will have fun imagining that my so-called flaws are signs of potential strengths and talents that I have not yet developed."

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
In accordance with current astrological omens, here's your meditation, as articulated by the blogger named Riverselkie: "Let your life be guided by the things that produce the purest secret happiness, with no thought to what that may look like from the outside. Feed the absurd whims of your soul and create with no audience in mind but yourself. What is poignant to you is what others will be moved by, too. Embrace what you love about yourself and the right people will come."

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Poet Juan Felipe Herrera praises the value of making regular efforts to detox our cluttered minds. He says that one of the best methods for accomplishing this cleansing is to daydream. You give yourself permission to indulge in uncensored, unabashed fantasies. You feel no inhibition about envisioning scenes that you may or may not ever carry out in real life. You understand that this free-form play of images is a healing joy, a gift you give yourself. It's a crafty strategy to make sure you're not hiding any secrets from yourself. Now is a favorable time to practice this art, Virgo.

(I remember having my own saying taped in my college binder, along side a postcard of a ship,
‘One never goes so far as when one doesn’t know where one is going.’
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I can't say this philosophy has actually gotten me far in life.
