Horoscopes by Rob Brezsny

Week of September 25th, 2008


(January 20- February 18)
Aquarian hockey mom and Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is a "cocky wacko," according to former Republican Senator Lincoln Chafee. While it's no surprise that a member of your tribe would be referred to as a wacko, the "cocky" designation is atypical. Many Aquarians never build a strong enough ego structure to feel as confident as they'd like, let alone slip into the realm of having too damn much confidence. So even though I disagree with most of Palin's political positions, and harbor a deep sadness that a more thoughtful and compassionate person didn't make it onto the Republican ticket, I urge you to cop some of her attitude in the coming days. Conduct experiments that will help you feel what it's like to cruise around with more than your usual amount of pride.

Robin Norwood's self-help book Women Who Love Too Much deals with a theme that has gotten a lot of play in recent decades: If you're too generous to someone who doesn't appreciate it and at the expense of your own needs, you can make yourself sick.

An alternative perspective comes from Blaise Pascal, who said, "When one does not love too much, one does not love enough." He was primarily addressing psychologically healthy altruists, but it's a good ideal for pronoia lovers to keep in mind.

Decide whether you need to move more in the direction of Norwood's or Pascal's advice. Develop a game plan to carry out your resolve, then take action.
The preceding oracle comes from my book, PRONOIA Is the Antidote for Paranoia: How the Whole World Is Conspiring to Shower You with Blessings. It's available at Amazon or Powells. Go here to listen to a podcast of me delivering a new excerpt from the book. You can also get the podcast on iTunes.
