Free Will Astrology

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The feats you're pulling off may not appear
spectacular to a casual observer. But in my view, they are some of the
most interesting accomplishments you've enjoyed in a while. Here's a
brief description of some of your subtly glorious breakthroughs: 1. You've
made yourself less susceptible to being manipulated by guilt or pushed
around by bullies or fooled by phonies. 2. You're getting smarter about
how you treat the people and things you love. 3. You're at the peak of
your ability to discern the difference between rash risks motivated by fear
and smart gambles driven by authentic intuition.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In his memoir, radio talk-show host
Michael Krasny notes that he is "the inverse of writer Saul Bellow, who
said that he was a bird and not an ornithologist." Even if you are usually
more like Krasny, Sagittarius, I suggest that you be like Bellow in the
coming weeks. In my astrological opinion, you need to be an embodiment
of wild nature, not an observer and appreciator of wild nature. It's time
for you to be a geyser, not an architect who critiques fountains; a bonfire,
not a candle-gazer; a horse, not a gambler who bets on the ponies.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A new Hawaiian island is in the process of
creating itself. Called Loihi, it's an active volcano that still lies beneath the
sea. As it vents lava in the millennia to come, it will eventually accumulate
enough mass to rise above water level and make itself available for trees
to grow on and animals to nest in and humans to dance on. In the coming
days, Capricorn, I invite you to regard this as an important symbol. Think
about what part of your life has a metaphorical resemblance to the
threshold that Loihi will be approaching about 10,000 years from now:
emerging out of the depths and breaking above the surface.
