Brezsny's Free Will Astrology

This weeks Free Will Astrology is up and ready to inspire! I've read Brezsny's horoscopes since I was 15 years old. He writes in a manner that is very open to interpretation but always seems to throw elements in to his readings that are dead on regardless of other variables. This week he opens his newsletter with this brilliant quote from RAW:

"In the old Sufi legend about Allah, he decided to drive everybody crazy. He changed the water so that everybody who drank it would go crazy. And then he decided there was one man he liked a lot so he told him 'Don't drink the water for the next month!' And after the first couple of days of living among all these lunatics the guy couldn't stand it any more and he went and drank the water too."

"The same kind of thing happens every day. People become aware that we're living in a crazy world and then they realize they can't live with that insight so they go crazy themselves so they can fit into that world." -Robert Anton Wilson

I read both Sagittarius and Capricorn as I was born on the Winter Solstice smack dab on the cusp. Of course, if forced to identify with one or the other I would always land on the Sagittarian side.
