Inner Space for November 2007

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Focus on nutrition. Start with food; then start with the influence that food has on your relationships. Take the lead. Slow down and see how you feel after you eat different things and how you feel when you eat with different people. Then move onto discovering your emotional nourishment needs. You are well situated to feel what you need in a clear way; to feel your emotions; to feel difficult or unpleasant feelings and not be intimidated by them. Mars retrograde says you are in a moment of reclaiming your home. Start with your kitchen.

Taurus (April 19-May 20)
Once again you are being confronted by a truly affirmative offer. Someone is saying yes. True, it’s yes not without conditions, but most of the discussion involves ordinary subject matter; ants at the picnic, water being wet, fire being hot. Anything extraordinary is contained in the ordinary. The solution to any anxiety you may be feeling is to be real, and speak your mind. It is true, your mind speaks to you, and it does so loudly. But you need to remind yourself every day that nobody else can hear it.

Gemini (May 20-June 21)
What you are working for and what you are going to get may be two different things. So I suggest you make an adjustment every time you feel yourself going overboard in the effort department. Stress or the feeling of pushing yourself hard probably are an indication that you’re going up the hill when you need to be going down, or taking in the view from where you are. You seem to be overly focused on working relationships, or the work aspect of loving relationships. Now is the time to focus on passion, faith and your highest vision with those with whom you share a soul bond.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Mars in your sign is pushing you to push yourself, but you can be carried forward gently enough by the momentum of deep dedication to your purpose. Remember that meaning is always a process of discovery; it is not fixed in any one place or time. For now, you are stretching out into the world. Soon, you will be stretching into yourself, breaking down barriers between you and your deepest desires, and fueling your spirit on your own inner fire. Then as the winter progresses, you will push back out into the world. To sum up, get ready for a time of retreat, which is preparation for a time of joyful conquering.

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23)
Commitment is always in the expression, not the words that seem to come along with it. It’s the continued experience of how you have been living, combined with how you want to live now. The momentum of human co-involvement must always be turned to fresh spaces, new ideas and in truth, new risks if you want to stay actively interested in love and life. An adventure of some kind is upon you, and will lead you places you might not have imagined. If there is a pause in the action, take a breath, focus on the people who are immediately around you, and wait on the will of heaven.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)
You have been working out your financial problems in theory; now is the time to work them out in practice, and that should be fairly easily done. You have the resources and the ideas. You are developing the relationships that will help you get where you are going, but you need to remember that you are the one who possesses the key ingredient. What seems to come and go is your awareness of that fact. Remember that you are the yeast, and everything that comes your way is some other ingredient in the bread. You are what gives the substance life, and its power to grow.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23)
You are near a personal breakthrough point, but before you get there you may be living with some wild tension and inner contradiction. In sum, you are struggling to express male energy. Some call it yang; some call it aggressive; you may be inclined to judge the kind of assertiveness you need to be delivering as cocky or arrogant. I suggest you dismiss the jury and send the judge on vacation. Your wellbeing depends on your ability to be fair with yourself, not judgmental.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
You are walking the thin line between the promise of wild innovation and the fear of self-deception. It’s like you have one foot on each side of the line. You may fear that you’re being misled by a partner or loved one, or by your own personal commitment to a relationship. How would your life feel if you took a break from your obsessive self-doubt? How would your existence feel if you consciously decided that your best opportunities were ahead of you, not behind you? To tell yourself you can successfully work toward the life you dream of is to finally dance with the truth. But first you must clear the fog of doubt and see the light of self-awareness.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22)
You have become a friend to instability — perhaps too good of a friend. Your current astrology, and that for the foreseeable future, is about grounding yourself and your intentions. Yet you need to be aware of a split you may be struggling with. To one side, you are striving to pull yourself into focus and take authority in a somewhat conventional way. To the other side, you are being fired up by a vision that is threatening to challenge every pre-existing concept of who you are or what you want. You would be in pretty big trouble if not for the balance. It may be causing you some tension, but in reality that tension is your most potent leverage point.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)
Freedom is the freedom to believe what you want. To reach a space where that is possible, you need to both overthrow the inner authoritarian that has been passed down to you for hundreds of generations, and take up that authority for yourself. Think of yourself as the almighty king who decrees unilaterally that the people shall be free. Just remember, you can’t really do that until you are free of your most persistent hang-ups and insecurities. To do that, you must, in turn, raise your inner awareness of them to a heightened level. Trust me: that is a radical act.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
There is a dialog that needs to happen, and you seem to be holding back. You seem to have grievances, or grief, that is troubling you, and you would go a long way toward resolving it both inwardly and outwardly if you initiate the discussion that you want so badly. The problem is that it may seem nobody is listening — but that will not be true for long. People are listening and you need to both notice that they are doing so, and take advantage of that fact. Then, basically, you need to take a chance on love. Not romance; actual love, and passion, and on the simple truth that the future is different than the past as long as we make it so.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Resources are coming your way, and you finally have a sufficient sense of grounding and structure to make them grow. At this stage in your life, you need to be adept at sensing the commitment level of others, and its particular qualities. Saturn in your opposite house will be easy for any Pisces who is not content merely to dream. When we stop merely dreaming, we enter relationships with people with whom we collaborate on making our dreams real. Remember, though, that you are in the position of visionary; you are making the meaningful decisions. Pay attention to who respects you and who does not. Then use the information immediately.
