Inner Space – October 2007

Aries (March 20-April 19)
You have no need to defend your feelings; they are your feelings. Take the same approach to your physical space; it is yours, and subject to your influence and to some extent your control. Remember that our first notion of a “house” is not our own house, but rather the one we showed up in, which was controlled by our parents and other older relatives. Beware that any power struggles that emerge among those you may currently share your space with could be repeats of earlier tales; it is your job to make them turn out differently. This is another way of saying your role is to hold everyone to the standards of an adult, never forgetting we are all little kids deep inside.

Taurus (April 19-May 20)
If a certain relationship or co-creative endeavor at times seems to be an uphill push, look or rather feel deeper. Beneath the surface is an extraordinary depth of commitment and dedication to honesty. If there are jealous feelings involved, take them as a sign of passion. In fact, any challenges you may face this month are community property. It is in everyone’s interest to apply a creative approach, or to take a chance that perhaps seems unlikely to succeed. When we have an opportunity to overcome our past beliefs and experiences, that is always something of a sacred turning point, a moment of truth and clarity. Such is now.

Gemini (May 20-June 21)
If you want new ideas about relationships, you need to state them out loud. Fear not that a sense of being provoked or injured is what might lead you to do this. That’s fine, if that’s what it takes. In such circumstances, it helps to make the clear statement, “I feel hurt and I am seeking healing by having this discussion.” That will go a long way toward allowing in the miracle of liberating yourself from past emotions that have long held you in situations dominated by power struggles. The time has come to see just how unnecessary those struggles really are. Yet they must be replaced by something, such as a highly conscious discussion of what is important to you.

 (June 21-July 22)
You may not be planning to establish your roots in a particular place or even at a particular time, but circumstances are conspiring that you make certain adjustments to your plans on the way to settling into the life you want and need. One of the key principles that surrounds your home life is that of balance. Your home needs to be a sane place, so that your relationships can possess a measure of the equilibrium that is so essential to your sanity and happiness. Keep this principle in mind; make sure the left and the right sides have something in common, and above all, keep your eye on beauty. That is a sure sign of balance, and of awareness.

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23)
Events and developments move quickly from idea to manifestation this month. What emerges will do more than hint at what is possible, or where you’ve arrived. You will be sure that you’ve reached a turning point both in your relationships and your concept of where you live. If you encounter a tight spot financially, sweat it out and apply the lessons of using structure to your advantage that you’ve learned so well the past few years. Most of what you have structured is yourself; now you need to make a few basic decisions that apply that technology to your wider, or rather wilder, life.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)
You seem to be struggling with an emotional issue, at a time when by most other accounts, your life is pretty good. I think the issue involves how safe you allow yourself to feel in those times when you are indeed safe. I suggest you work with this one: feel the roof over your head, feel the lock that bolts your door, pick up the phone and listen to the dial tone. Feel what it feels like to have food in the house, and a notebook to write in. Feel the strength and beauty deep within you. Then, remember that feeling well.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23)
Face your fears early, and get them out of the way. They hold no power over you that you don’t personally give them. I suggest you make peace with your secret mental obsession, the one that’s at the heart of your struggle with decisions. It’s not the weighing and the balancing that slows you down as much as processing the minutiae of your thoughts in an unconscious way. At the very least, think openly about what you are thinking about. Give your ideas a voice, and listen to what it says.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
You need to be honest with your partners about your issues, their issues, and all the ways you feel hurt. Your solar chart reveals an intense state of mind, so you may want to preface the discussion by taking responsibility for what you feel; then do precisely that. Your feelings have a history, and they have energy, but they are not God. I think you will see that old gripes are useless unless they are given the room to be known and thus an opportunity to be resolved, and this is indeed possible. Yet what you are really working through is an inner sense that your own judgments block your progress. In fact, they do.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22)
You are still working up to some of the best that life has to offer, but you come pretty close this month. While you’re not necessarily so ambitious by nature — lucky is more the word — you now need to apply yourself in a direct way. You need to build your reputation rather than float along on it. And it would be positively brilliant if you painted your personal and professional goals with a fine-point pen rather than the broad brush you usually use. Typically you leave this kind of detailed work to others because it’s just not interesting enough for you; now, do it because it’s fun.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)
Face personal challenges head on, but make sure you see yourself in anyone you perceive as an adversary, particularly a domestic partner. To see, you may need to look; you are looking for the attribute of yourself that you don’t generally display. That attribute is still you, even though you would usually prefer to not let it out of the bag most of the time. Yet that is no excuse for denial. Indeed, events of this month seem poised to bring you out of that rather debilitating state of mind, and help you raise awareness of what matters most to you and someone you care about immensely.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
Saturn has finally unlocked its grip on your relationship angle (Leo), where it was transiting for more than two years. The last weeks in August were probably nothing short of agonizing. The message of Saturn in Virgo is that much more is negotiable than has been the case in recent seasons of your life. In fact, everything is negotiable, and on terms that you take a great role in setting. What has changed? Thought rather than raw emotion is the new source of energy. Raw emotion is useful, and you still have plenty of that at your disposal. But intelligence is what you thrive on, and praise Goddess, intelligence is available right now.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Be not afraid of your desire. If you are like most Pisces, you were taught to keep your wild ideas to yourself. Yet if you look, you will see that you have had a truly magnificent influence on the people and environment around you, and the way you have done that is by daring to speak up; daring to be real. Recent events in your life have proven the utmost worth of being yourself from day to day, no matter how radical it may seem at the moment. What is outrageous and controversial today is just a good idea tomorrow, so please don’t hold back.
