Out of Time & Space Astrology 

Happy (Belated and R.I.P.) Birthday, Etta "At Last" James, January 25, 2012. You would have been 74 years old. Let your Aquarian Freak Flag fly. (Is that redundant?)

As with ALL Aquarians, you cannot look to a frugally produced Asian calendar at a neighborhood eatery and then think you know your Chinese animal. Ms. Etta, although an Aquarian, was born in the prior year of the Earth Ox (must talk to someone who can look up a lunar calendar or a New Moon in Aquarius). Etta was not born the year of the Earth Tiger. This particular regal title belongs to Ms. Turner, born in November of 1938, and those born after February 1, 1938.

Some knowing souls party for nine days, from January 23 through February 1. One of this year's mottos: Instead of focusing on what you do NOT have, focus on what you have AND, more importantly, what has been done for you, please.

Astrological note: Know that one of the most challenging times occurs close to June 24 when Pluto (transformation) and Uranus (shocks) square off in Capricorn and Aries. Use the philosophy of the Chinese I Ching to make your deeper decisions. Your yearly verse is as follows ...

AIR

Aquarius/Aquarius Rising*(Jan 20-Feb 19): Dragon's wind can be thought of as gentle yet penetrating. Your 2012 philosophical verse is 20 aka Kuan or Contemplating. A language of symbols, and this verse is chock-full of them, a temple, watchtower and your inner self contemplating the meaning of life. Realize that you'll sense the future (as you normally do), however, through having a daily spiritual practice (some kind of decompressing, downtime). You can logically access a tempered future, not an apocalyptic one. So when there's a crisis in or of your community, stop and think, refusing to indulge feelings from the past that are clouding your precise judgment in the present. There's treating your body like a temple. Your sexual energies (which include creativity) awaken throughout this next six weeks. Repress this drive at your peril. Instead, use your verse to guide you into being the well-received adviser to a circle of people who need your balanced vision of what we can be to each other once we drop our attachment to our outer masks and possessions. After all, Kuan Yin is a bodhisattva (a being that forgos Nirvana, a Buddhist heaven, until all beings get enlightenment); therefore, you know you can help with a bit of otherworldly perspective, based on what can logically be done in the present.

Gemini/Gemini Rising* (May 21-Jun 20): Begun in Aquarius. As one of the three air signs, you, Aquarius and Libra are here to play the roles of mediators. The spring of 2012 will need many members of your observing tribe. Verse 59 or Dispersion speaks of the social responsibility of artists. With creativity and a unique vision, artists are charged with the response-ability to reunite us with reality. Dispersion also can indicate that when you are bending to your breaking point, you imagine yourself separating your egocentric attachments as if you were a butcher cutting meat from a bone. You perceive the knife and the meat in harmony. We need your ability to reframe potentially conflicting issues. Through this reframing, some get to save face while others get more light shown onto them and their motives. Use your fact-gathering nature to share and distribute truth, as distinguished from wishful thinking. Continued in the initiating social-networking air sign of Libra ...

Libra/Libra Rising* (Sep 23-Oct 22): Begun in Aquarius. Yours and the other Venus-ruled sign (Taurus) share an excellent philosophical verse. It is called "Insight" or "Inner Truth." The wind of the dragon moves briskly over your I Ching the lake. These breezes move even the most stubborn individuals. You possess better luck at persuading us to take the higher ground. As one original text states, "An enlightened person, therefore, negotiates in disputes and moderates rigid ideas." But what happens when you are the one with the rigid ideas? You will not, I repeat, enjoy the spring lest you become mentally open and flexible. Resist the temptation to argue with your "relative" mental adaptability. You excel at discussing where we become hard to manage, but look into your own mirror and true insight (and being heard more clearly by us) will flourish. After the mental observation and creation of new ways to relate, enter in the soulful, unity-seeking water signs.
