SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

“This is what I believe,” wrote D.H. Lawrence. “That my soul is a dark forest. That my known self will never be more than a little clearing in the forest. That gods come forth from the forest into the clearing of my known self, and then go back. That I must have the courage to let them come and go. That I will try always to recognize and submit to them.” I’m hoping this passage inspires you in two ways, Sagittarius. First, you’re in especially close touch with the deepest sources of your life, so it’s an excellent time to write your own creed, beginning with the phrase “This is what I believe.” Secondly, more gods than usual are coming forth into the clearing of your known self, and they’re uncommonly willing to give you juicy clues. Pay close attention to their whispers and screams.


Here’s an old Rosicrucian affirmation you might be interested in trying out: “I vow to interpret every event in my life as a direct communication from God to my soul.” If you do this right, every ad on the side of a passing bus becomes a pithy omen; every eavesdropped conversation blesses you with a tantalizing bit of divine guidance.

I’ve never recommended this exercise before because I didn’t think it would mean anything to you. Now, suddenly, you’re more than ready.
