Horoscopes by Rob Brezsny

Week of August 18th, 2022


(December 22-January 19)
In her poem "Valentine," Capricorn poet Carol Ann Duffy tells a lover she won't give her a "red rose or a satin heart." Instead, her token of affection is an onion, a symbol of multi-layered complexity. "Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips," Duffy writes, "possessive and faithful as we are, for as long as we are." She adds that the onion will "blind you with tears like a lover." OK. I understand the tough attitude expressed by Duffy. Romance isn't a relentlessly sweet, sentimental romp through paradise. But I don't recommend that you imitate her approach to your love life in the coming weeks and months. Appreciate the sometimes shadowy and labyrinthine convolutions, yes, but don't make them more important than beauty and joy and love. How about invoking the symbol of a pomegranate? It represents fertility and rebirth out of the darkness.


WHY IS IT CALLED "FREE WILL" ASTROLOGY? Because my goal is to create horoscopes that nurture your free will.

Contrary to what some people believe, there's no such thing as predestination. Fate is a tricky phenomenon that keeps changing its inclinations about where to go.

That's why I don't call myself a fortuneteller. My best service is as a psychic intelligence agent, helping you find hidden patterns and unconscious forces that may be affecting you. If I "predict" anything, it's not so much the future as the unknown parts of the present.

If you want more than the 'scopes you reading here, remember I also create EXPANDED AUDIO HOROSCOPE. They're further meditations on the state of your destiny.
