Horoscopes by Rob Brezsny

Week of October 5th, 2006


(November 22-December 21)
The Burning Man festival is one of the planet's most spectacularly idealistic parties. Now in its second decade, the week-long event annually draws upwards of 40,000 celebrants to a barren patch of Nevada desert to participate in a "gift economy," where no money changes hands and art is as abundant as advertisements are back in the "real" world. The founder and director of this cultural triumph is Larry Harvey. His success didn't come quickly. "I was a failed janitor, failed gardener, failed bike messenger, failed taxi driver," he testifies. "By any normal standard, I was an abject failure. Now I see that this was actually a sustained course of study for everything I'm doing now." With this as your cue, Sagittarius, make a supreme effort to reinterpret all your so-called flops and missteps as crucial lessons that helped you develop your unique mission.

As you know, I give away these weekly Free Will Astrology horoscopes free. I plan to continue doing that indefinitely. I do want to make a living from doing what I love, though, which is why I have two other horoscope features you can spend money on if you're so moved.

I'm now offering DAILY TEXT MESSAGE HOROSCOPES -- short, sweet bursts of illumination delivered seven days a week to your cell phone or other mobile device.

I've also got EXPANDED AUDIO HOROSCOPES -- weekly spoken-word musings on your destiny that run about three to four minutes. The audio horoscopes are also available by phone at 1-877-873-4888 or 1-900-950-7700.
