LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
“I slept with faith and found a corpse in my arms on awakening,” wrote occult philosopher Aleister Crowley in his flowery neo-Victorian style. “I drank and danced all night with doubt and found her a virgin in the morning.” I think that formulation will serve you well in the coming days, Libra. There’s little to be gained from clinging compulsively to your hopes and fantasies about what’s true. Just the opposite: Momentous strength will rise up in you if you question everything you hold dear or assume to be fact.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
In her book Waiting for God, French mystic and political activist Simone Weil (1909-1943) wrote a passage I’d love for you to keep in mind during the coming weeks: “When an apprentice gets hurt, or complains of being tired, the workmen have this fine expression: ‘It is the trade entering his body.’ Each time that we have some pain to go through, we can say to ourselves quite truly that it is the order and beauty of the world that are entering our body.” I encourage you, Scorpio, to adopt this redemptive attitude about the suffering you have been experiencing.

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.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Between 8 and 9 o’clock one morning, I made a 30-mile roundtrip from San Francisco to Marin County, crossing the Golden Gate Bridge twice in the process. In that brief time, I drove through five different micro-climates, some of them twice: 1. dense, blinding fog; 2. heavily overcast skies but no fog; 3. totally bright and sunny; 4. wispy fog with sun pouring down through it, creating a blend of grey and gold; 5. partially sunny with rolling bubbles of fog visible in the distance. Judging from your current astrological omens, Aquarius, I’m guessing that what I experienced is an apt metaphor for what your life will be like in the coming days: a quick-shifting kaleidoscope of vivid moods and rich textures. Celebrate each scene, knowing it will soon give way to a new one.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson told The Washington Post the following fun facts: “There are more molecules of water in a cup of water than cups of water in all the world’s oceans. This means that some molecules in every cup of water you drink passed through the kidneys of Genghis Khan, Napoleon, Abe Lincoln, or any other historical person of your choosing.” Your assignment this week, Pisces, is to choose three heroes you’d most like to be influenced and inspired by. Every time you drink water, be conscious of the fact that some of it was once inside the bodies of those exceptional people. Say a prayer that their mojo will become available to you.
