★Saturday Forecast

Libra Gibbous Moon
—June 19

Today’s celestial traffic continues to set the scene with potential misunderstandings, missed alignments, and/or misunderstood intentions…

Perhaps the lines of cross-purposing are becoming crossed in and of itself?

Today offers a(n) (im)balanced mixture of “finding common ground between living things and appeals for kindness and compassion; cooperative efforts and emotional inclusiveness; getting people to open up and adapting one’s message to other people’s capacities; and dissolving the barriers between the personal and the collective…”

However, simultaneously, there is an obvious in-obviousness about seeing trees and forests alike—in appreciating the details within the overall picture of things…

Today will somewhat demand of you, however charmingly, the need to “shine a light on a situation; pointing out facts that others are trying to ignore; seeing the way out of one’s current difficulties; promoting a higher level of civilization through an imperturbable high-mindedness; trying to establish ideals of freedom, justice, and truth at the highest level…”

But because today is offering mixed reviews and imbalanced perceptions… please ask yourself: should I still be struggling with my personal ideals—are these ideals of mine realistic?—or are they tragically improbable? 

Or… it’s time to consider if you’ve done your part to fulfill your end of the deal toward your ideal.

Oscar Wilde said that if you know what you want to be, then you inevitably become it… that is your punishment, but if you never know, then you can be anything. There is a truth to that. We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing… an actor, a writer… I am a person who does things… I write, I act… and I never know what I am going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun.
——Stephen Fry
