Horoscopes by Rob Brezsny

Week of February 8th, 2007


(September 23-October 22)
Happy Valentine Daze, Libra! After careful meditation about what advice might help you expand your experience of intimacy, I've decided to offer you the following meditation. "Love sometimes gets tired of speaking sweetly. It wants to rip to shreds all your erroneous notions of truth that make you fight within yourself, and with others." So writes Daniel Ladinsky in his translation of a poem by Hafiz. Love, he continues, "sometimes wants to do us a great favor: hold us upside down and shake all the nonsense out." That's a pretty good description of where I think you are in your current relationship with love, Libra. I hope you're brave enough to cooperate with its gift.

You can still listen to my long-range, in-depth explorations of your destiny in 2007. Each report in the three-part series is about 6-8 minutes long. A new short-range forecast for this week is also available.


How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love how you always manage to drum up a "delirium of solutions" (in William Carlos Williams' phrase), and how many of them are elegant. I am delighted you're developing an ever-more-finely honed knack for knowing precisely when and how to give your abundant gifts, and I'm also excited by your growing sense of when to cut back on your giving so as not to overdo it. And I love love love how you're no longer trying to get fixed by influences that can't fix you, and how you're learning to recognize the magic that really can heal.
P.S. Please recite these words from Leo Tolstoy as if they were your own: "Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love."

The preceding love notes were brought to you by my last two books, PRONOIA Is the Antidote for Paranoia: How the Whole World Is Conspiring to Shower You with Blessings and The Televisionary Oracle, and by my music CD, Give Too Much.
