FREE WILL ASTROLOGY – Week of August 19, 2023
Copyright by Rob Brezsny,

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
Until you’re French, chances are high you will have by no means heard of Saint-John Perse (1887–1975). He was a famend diplomat for the French authorities and a poet who gained the Nobel Prize for Literature. Now he’s nearly unknown exterior of his residence nation. Can we draw helpful classes in your use, Leo? Nicely, I think that within the coming months, you might very effectively come into better prominence and wield extra clout. However it’s essential for the long-term well being of your soul that in this constructing time, you’re in service to nurturing your soul as a lot as your ego. The worldly energy and pleasure you obtain will in the end fade like Perse’s. However the non secular development you accomplish will endure eternally.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
“You understand how loopy love could make you,” write Mary D. Esselman and Elizabeth Ash Vélez of their e-book Love Poems for Actual Life. “On any given day, you’re insanely completely satisfied, maniacally depressing, kooky with contentment, or bonkers with boredom—and that’s in relationship.” They add, “You must be slightly nuts to commit your self, physique and soul, to at least one different individual—one fantastic, goofy, fallible individual—within the hope that happily-ever-after actually does exist.” The authors make good factors, however their view of togetherness might be lower than totally relevant to you within the coming months. I think life will deliver you boons as you focus your intelligence on creating well-grounded, nourishing, non-melodramatic bonds with reliable allies.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
“I don’t undertake anybody’s concepts—I’ve my very own.” So proclaimed Scorpio writer Ivan Turgenev (1818–1883). Actually, Ivan? Had been you by no means influenced by another person’s ideas, ideas, artwork, or opinions? The very fact is that every one of us stay in a world created and formed by the concepts of others. We should always have a good time that wondrous privilege! We needs to be happy we don’t have to supply the whole lot from scratch below our personal energy. As for you Scorpios studying this oracle, I urge you to be the anti-Turgenev within the coming weeks. Rejoice at how interconnected you’re—and take full benefit of it. Treasure the teachings which have made you who you’re. Sing your gratitude for many who have cast the world you like to stay in. You now have the ability to be a unprecedented networker.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
The Tibetan time period lenchak is usually translated as “karmic debt.” It refers back to the unconscious conditioning and unhealthy previous habits that entice us to individuals we might be higher off not partaking. I might be daring and declare that someday quickly, you should have totally paid off a lenchak that has brought on you relationship issues. Congrats! You’re virtually freed from a long-running delusion. You don’t really need an affect you thought you wanted.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Within the bathe or bathtub, you begin your cleaning course of with one specific motion, like washing your face, and go on to different duties in the identical sequence each time. Some individuals stay most of their lives this manner: following well-established patterns in all they do. I’m not criticizing that method, although it doesn’t work for me. I want extra unpredictability and selection. Anyway, Capricorn, I think that within the coming weeks, you’ll profit from attempting my follow. Have enjoyable creating variations in your normal patterns. Take pleasure in being a novelty freak with the every day particulars.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
In July 1812, composer Ludwig van Beethoven wrote a 10-page love letter to a girl he referred to as “My Angel” and “Immortal Beloved.” He by no means despatched it, and students are nonetheless uncertain of the addressee’s identification. The message included strains like “you — my the whole lot, my happiness . . . my solace — my the whole lot” and “eternally thine, eternally mine, eternally us.” I hope you’ll quickly have sound causes for composing your individual model of an “Immortal Beloved” letter. In accordance with my astrological evaluation, it’s time in your tender ardour to totally bloom. If there’s not a selected one that warrants such a message, write it to an imaginary lover.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):
At age 32, artist Peter Milton realized the colours he thought he utilized in his work had been completely different from what his viewers noticed. He received his eyes examined and found he had coloration blindness. For instance, what he considered grey with a touch of yellow, others perceived as inexperienced. Shocked, he launched an sudden adjustment. For the following 40 years, all his work had been black and white solely. They made him well-known and have been exhibited in main museums.

ARIES (March 21-April 19):
The Lincoln Calibration Sphere 1 is a hole globe of aluminum launched into Earth orbit in 1965. 58 years later, it continues to circle the planet—and remains to be doing the job it was designed to do.

You should have a considerable capability to be taught out of your previous; to forestall mediocre histories from repeating themselves; to flee the ruts of your behavior thoughts and instigate contemporary tendencies.
