Horoscopes by Rob Brezsny

Week of February 2nd, 2017


(June 21-July 22)
The 17th-century German alchemist Hennig Brand collected 1,500 gallons of urine from beer-drinkers, then cooked and re-cooked it till it achieved the "consistency of honey." Why? He thought his experiment would eventually yield large quantities of gold. It didn't, of course. But along the way, he accidentally produced a substance of great value: phosphorus. It was the first time anyone had created a pure form of it. So in a sense, Brand "discovered" it. Today phosphorus is widely used in fertilizers, water treatment, steel production, detergents, and food processing. I bring this to your attention, my fellow Cancerian, because I suspect you will soon have a metaphorically similar experience. Your attempt to create a beneficial new asset will not generate exactly what you wanted, but will nevertheless yield a useful result.


You can still listen to my three-part, in-depth Explorations of Your Long-Range Future. Who do you want to become in 2017? Where do you want to go and what do you want to do? My forecasts can help you muse about the interesting possibilities.
