Free Will Astrology
Published: May 31, 2012
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Should you get down on your knees and beg for love and recognition? No! Should you give yourself away without seeking much in return? Don't do that, either. Should you try to please everyone in an attempt to be popular? Definitely not. Should you dilute your truth so as not to cause a ruckus? I hope not. So then what am I suggesting you should do? Ask the following question about every possibility that comes before you: “Will this help me to master myself, deepen my commitment to what I want most and gain more freedom?”
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Do you know why flamingos have their distinctive orange-pink color? It's because of the carotene in the shrimp and other food they consume. If they change their diet, their feathers turn dull gray. That's a dramatic example of the adage “You are what you eat.” Let's use it as a prompt to contemplate all the stuff you take into the holy temple of your body. Not just the sandwiches and chocolate bars and alcohol, but also the images, sounds, ideas, emotions and energy you get from other people. Is the cumulative effect of all those things giving you the shape and color and texture you want to have? If not, this would be a good time to adjust your intake.
