Horoscopes by Rob Brezsny

Week of October 23rd, 2008


(March 21-April 19)
The government of my home country America spends an obscene fortune on its armed forces -- as much as do all the other nations of the world combined. In fact, we are by far the most weaponized empire in the history of the world. Our 761 military bases in over 100 countries dwarf the comparatively puny garrisons of the Roman and British empires at their peak, with 37 and 36 bases respectively. If our military costs were cut down to a more reasonable amount -- say the same as that of China (whose population is more than four times the size of ours) -- we'd have an annual trillion-dollar bonus to deal with the financial infection that erupted here and sent toxic ripples throughout the world. Maybe we'd even have enough left over to seed a national health care system. Keeping that in mind as a metaphor, Aries, make this your hypothesis: By reducing the hostility, combativeness, and judgmental ire that you personally generate, you'll be far more likely to navigate your way toward prosperity.

How much do you want to know about your destiny? How far do you dare to go? For more insight into your intriguing fate, tune in to your EXPANDED AUDIO HOROSCOPE for the week ahead.


Imagine that you have been relieved of your responsibilities for a given time. They will be taken care of by people you trust. You won't have to work to make money during this grace period, but will be given all you need. Nor will you have to clean your house, wash your clothes, or buy and make your food. Now here's the big question: What will you do now that you are free to do anything you like?
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 hear my podcasts, in which I deliver material from the book.
