Free Will Astrology (10/19/22) | Free Will Astrology | Seven days

BALANCE (September 23-October 22): Poet Libra Wallace Stevens said that the great poems of heaven and hell have already been written, and now is the time to generate the great poems of earth. I would like to invite all Libras, including non-writers, to apply this perspective in their own sphere. Forget heaven and hell for now. Divert your attention from perfection, never-never lands and lofty heights. Ignore the pathologies, the mud and the misery. Instead, explore and celebrate the precious mysteries of the world as it is. Be a connoisseur of the beauty and small miracles embedded in the small details of life. Find glory in routine.

SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21): Here are two Scorpio hobbies: 1) exploring and unleashing your intense and fertile creativity; 2) Joyfully spiraling down deep dark voids in pursuit of deep dark riches. Sometimes these two hobbies go together quite well; you can satisfy both activities simultaneously. One of my favorite variations on this scenario is when the deep, dark void you jump into turns out to be actually a lush wonderland that fuels your intense, fertile creativity. According to my analysis of astrological omens, it should happen soon.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): “I don’t want to be quieted down or made to feel comfortable. I like stuff that gets the adrenaline pumping.” Sagittarius filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow said that. Thanks to this attitude, she became the first woman to win an Oscar for best director. His film was The Hurt Locker, about American soldiers in Iraq disposing of unexploded bombs while being harassed by enemies. Anyway, Bigelow’s approach is generally too harsh for me. I am a sensitive Cancer the Crab, not a bold Sagittarius the Centaur like Bigelow and you. But I don’t want to assume you’re in the mood for his approach. If so, the coming weeks will be conducive to its deployment. Wonderful epiphanies and healing shifts will be available as you let go of things that soothe you or make you feel comfortable.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): Author Jan Richardson tells us that we can’t return home using the same route we took when we left. This will be sound advice to keep in mind over the next nine months. I expect you to attempt at least two types of homecomings. For best results, plan to travel by different routes than what might seem natural and obvious. The most direct path—the successful passage—can be diverted.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18): In the days ahead, maintain strict boundaries between yourself and anyone or anything that is not healthy for you. Be ultra-discerning when deciding which influences you will allow to affect you and which you will not. And rather than getting sour and uptight while doing this, I recommend you proceed with wicked humor and sly irony. Here are three naughty self-protection statements you can use to ward off threats and stay tamper-proof. 1) “The current vibe does not align perfectly with the vital energy of my soul; I must seek out a more harmonious karma.” 2) “This atmosphere is out of sync with my deep, precious self; I have to take my deep, precious self somewhere else.” 3) “The undertones here stir up my undercurrents; it’s up to me to hunt down the groovier undertones.”

PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20): In your sleep, have you ever dreamed of discovering new rooms in a house or other building that you know well? I bet you will soon have at least one of these dreams. What does it mean? It suggests that you want and need to get in touch with parts of yourself that were inactive or unavailable. You can uncover evocative secrets about your past and present that were unknown to you. You’ll discover new resources you can access and provocative possibilities you never imagined.

RAM (March 21-April 19): “We must be willing to let go of the life we ​​have planned in order to have the life that awaits us.” Aries mythologist Joseph Campbell said this, and now I am passing it on to you just in time for the sacred surrender phase of your astrological cycle. Make good use of Campbell’s wisdom, Aries! You will generate good fortune for yourself by working to release expectations that may interfere with the arrival of new stories and adventures. Be courageous, my dear, as you let go of outdated attachments and let go of dead hopes.

BULL (April 20-May 20): Plastic bags are used an average of 12 minutes before being thrown away. Then they languish in our soil or oceans, slowly degrading as they wreak havoc on animals and ecosystems. In keeping with current cosmic rhythms, I encourage you to be more discerning in your relationship with plastic bags – as well as all other unproductive, impractical, and unnecessary things and people. In the weeks ahead, you will thrive focusing on what will serve you with great integrity for a long time.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Achilleas Frangakis is professor of electron microscopy. He studies the biochemistry of cells. In one of his research projects, he studied how cells interact with the outside world. He didn’t learn much about this question, but during his experiments he inadvertently discovered fascinating new information about another topic: how cells interact with each other when healing a wound. His “successful failure” was an example of what scientists sometimes do: they miss what they were looking for but find unexpected data and make fortuitous discoveries. I suspect you’ll soon have comparable luck, Gemini. Watch out for goodies you didn’t need.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Renowned Brazilian novelist Osman Lins was born under the sign of Cancer the Crab. He writes: “From now on, I will live my life with the inventiveness of an engineer who pulls his locomotive off the rails. No more beaten tracks: improvisation is the rule. In the weeks ahead, I’m all for you, my fellow cancer patient, being an inventive adventurer who liberally improvises and strays from the well-trodden roads. However, I don’t recommend you do the equivalent of running your train off the tracks. Instead, let’s say you’re driving a four-wheel drive all-terrain vehicle. Get off the beaten track to explore. Improvise with enthusiasm as you discover the unknown. But do so with scrupulous attention to what is wholesome and uplifting.

LEO (July 23-August 22): In recent years, art historians have recovered many masterpieces that had been missing for years. Among them, a sculpture by Bernini, a sketch by Picasso, a drawing by Albrecht Dürer and a painting by Titian. I’m a big fan of efforts like these: searching and finding lost treasures. And I think you should make it a fun project in the weeks to come. Are there beautiful creations that have been lost or forgotten? Helpful resources that have been overlooked? Wild truths that have been buried or underestimated? In keeping with astrological potentials, I hope you will explore such possibilities.

VIRGIN (August 23-September 22): The most important experience you can seek in the coming months is to be seen and respected for who you really are. Who are the best allies to give you this blessing? Make vigorous efforts to keep them close and treat them well. To inspire your mission, I offer you three quotes. 1) Franz Kafka said: “All the love in the world is useless if there is a complete lack of understanding.” 2) Anaïs Nin wrote: “I don’t want adoration. I want understanding.” 3) George Orwell: “Perhaps we didn’t want to be loved so much as understood.”
