Free Will Astrology – The Santa Barbara Independent



(March 21-April 19): For much of her life, Aries poet Mary Ruefle loved to imagine that polar bears and penguins “grew up together playing side by side on the ice, sharing the same view, bits of fat and lore. ”But one day her illusions were shattered. In a science journal, she discovered that there are no penguins in the Far North and no bears in the Deep South. I bring this to your attention, Aries, because the coming weeks will be a good time to correct the false impressions that you have had for quite some time, even since your childhood.


(April 20-May 20): Actress Elizabeth Taylor described her odd pace with actor James Dean. Occasionally they would stay awake until 3 a.m. as he regaled her with poignant details about his life. But the next day, Dean would act as if he and Taylor were strangers – as if, in Taylor’s words, “he had betrayed too much or revealed too much of himself.” It would take a few days before he became friendly again. For those of us who study the nature of intimacy, this is a classic phenomenon. For many people, taking a risk to get closer can be scary. Keep that in mind over the next few weeks, Taurus. There will be great potential to deepen your connection with dear allies, but you may have to face your own and their fears about it.


(May 21-June 20): There are many types of smiles. Four hundred muscles are involved in making a wide variety of expressions. Researchers have identified a specific type, dubbed the “affiliate smile,” as having the power to restore trust between two people. It’s calming, respectful and compassionate. I recommend that you use it extensively in the near future – along with other accommodating behaviors. You are in a favorable phase to mend relationships that have been damaged by mistrust or weakened by any other factor. (More info:


(June 21-July 22): According to feminist cosmologists Monica Sjöö and Barbara Mor, “Night, for ancient peoples, was not an ‘absence of light’ or negative darkness, but a powerful source of energy and inspiration. At night, the cosmos reveals itself in its vastness, the earth opens up to humidity and moonlight germination, and the serpentine magnetic current stirs in the groundwater. I bring these thoughts to your attention, fellow Cancer, for we are in the season where we are likely to be very creative: as the days get shorter and the nights longer. We crabs thrive in the dark. We regenerate ourselves and are visited by new perspectives on what Sjöö and Mor call “the great cosmic dance in which everything participates: the movement of heavenly bodies, the pulse of the tides, the circulation of blood and sap in animals and plants “.


(July 23-August 22): Your heart has its own brain: a “brain of the heart”. It is made up of neurons similar to the neurons in the brain in your head. Your cardiac brain communicates through your vagus nerve with your hypothalamus, thalamus, marrow, tonsil, and cerebral cortex. In this way, it gives your body useful instructions. I suspect he will be even stronger in the coming weeks. That’s why I suggest you call on your cardiac brain to do much of the magic it specializes in: enhancing emotional intelligence, cultivating empathy, invoking deep feelings, and transforming pain.


(August 23-September 22): How did naturalist Charles Darwin become a skillful thinker who changed the world with his theory of evolution? An important factor, according to businessman Charlie Munger: “He has always given priority attention to evidence tending to disprove any dear and hard-won theory he already had. He liked to be proven wrong! This helped him refine his ideas so that they more closely match the truth about reality. I invite you to take advantage of this method in the coming weeks, Virgo. You could get even smarter than you already are by using Darwin’s rigorous approach to learning.


(September 23-October 22): You may soon reach a new level of mastery in an ability described by author Banana Yoshimoto. She wrote: “Once you recognize your own limitations, you have elevated yourself to a higher level of being, since you are closer to your real you. I hope his words inspire you, Libra. Your mission is to seek a liberating breakthrough by identifying who you will never be and what you will never do. If you do it right, with an open and enthusiastic mind, it will be fun, interesting and stimulating.


(October 23-November 21): Scorpio theologian Eugene Peterson has clarified a mystery about the nature of the mystery. He wrote: “The mystery is not the absence of meaning, but the presence of more meaning than we can comprehend. ” Yes! At least sometimes the mystery can be a cause for celebration, a delicious opening to a beautiful stranger who is full of possibilities. It can bring abundance, not frustration. It can be an inspiring conundrum, not a debilitating doubt. Everything I just said is important for you to keep in mind at this time.


(Nov 22-Dec 21): In 2017, Richard Thaler won the Nobel Prize in Economics. His specialty: researching how unreasonable behavior affects the financial world. When he found out he had been awarded this great honor, he joked that he planned to spend the award money “as irrationally as possible.” I suggest that you make him your model for the near future, Sagittarius. Your irrational, non-rational, and trans-rational intuitions can correct the distortions caused by over-analytical and hyper-logical approaches to you and your allies.


(December 22-January 19): “Neurosis” and “neurosis” are old-fashioned words. Psychotherapists no longer use them to analyze their patients. The terms are still useful, however, in my opinion. Most of us are at least partly neurotic, meaning that we don’t always adapt as well as we could to the constantly changing circumstances of life. We find it difficult to go beyond our usual patterns and we fail to achieve the magnificent destinies of which we are capable. Author Kenneth Tynan had this idea: “A neurosis is a secret you don’t know you’re keeping. I draw your attention to this, Capricorn, because you now have an additional power to adapt to changing circumstances, to overcome usual patterns and to uncover unknown secrets, thus lessening your neuroses.


(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Author Darin Stevenson wrote the following poetic statement: “No one can give you the lightning medicine,” say the people who cannot give the lightning medicine. do you interpret his statement? Here is what I think. “Lightning medicine” can be a metaphorical reference to a special talent that some people have to heal, inspire or awaken their fellow human beings. It could signify an ingenious quality in a person that allows them to reveal startling truths or alternate perspectives. I’m talking about this, Aquarius, because I suspect that you now have an increased ability to get lightning meds in the weeks to come. I hope you will lock it up and use it even though you are told there is no cure for lightning. (PS: “Lightning Medicine” will fuel your ability to accomplish difficult feats.)


(February 19-March 20): The superb Wren gives its chicks singing lessons when they are still inside their eggs. It’s a useful metaphor for you in the months to come. While you may not yet be fully “born” into your hero’s next big story plot, you are already learning what you’ll need to know once you get to your new story. It will be helpful to be aware of these clues and signals from the future. Tune in to them at the edge of your consciousness.
