Gemini/Gemini Rising* (May 21-Jun 20): I think, therefore I freak. More likely to begin as an observer of our indelicate or extreme behaviors, you eventually imagine what you really can get away with. During midwinter, you get these visions of how to communicate a more optimistic future for you and yours. You move between what you think is acceptable and what you imagine to be "out there." Thoughts are not to be judged as wrong or bad. But you've got to let your mind lead you out of what you consider to be conventional. Your life can be as simple as "do what you will, but harm none." Hey, not my words - this motto was started by St. Augustine. Be unusual and live life fully.
Cancer/Cancer Rising* (Jun 21-July 21): Yo' mama, aka Playing the Dozens began what we now call "trash talk." Sensitive with a hard shell, that's your freaky mix. You'll talk more trash than anyone while not showing how it can hurt you. It may be time to leave your armor behind. There's no shame is showing where your vulnerabilities lie. Particularly when you trust someone, it becomes increasingly important to drop your defenses. Unless we know where you can be hurt, we may keep on talking trash. If it's love that you want, you must soften up enough to receive it. There's a new cycle for the next three weeks that love may find you through your career (and you could find you have more joy in your work).
Leo/Leo Rising* (July 22-Aug 22): Even your normally conventional self has to admit that freaks are unusual individualists of the highest sort. You do realize that the freaks come out at night. You respect folk who have the courage or chutzpah to live without worrying about what other people think of them. Secretly, you respect their strength. Well, that trait exists within you. With pleasure-seeking and -giving Venus moving through passionate and supportive Aries, you have an open path to transforming your philosophy of how to live better with those closest to you. It's all about sharing your true self, not dominating or controlling how we see you. Refuse to be dominated by your insecurities, and definitely do not act from them.
Virgo/Virgo Rising* (Aug 22-Sept 22): Last week, I wrote about the "Age of Aquarius." This is the 21st century, and women in the U.S. Senate have taken on the assertion that they cannot believe we are still having a conversation regarding birth control for women. The American soul has become freakishly dishonest as it relates to sex. Yes, an ability to self-identify as a freak means thinking for yourself as it relates to how you experience pleasure, and the consequences thereof. Consciousness and freak identified go hand in hand, in the very real sense that the most balanced and illuminating "freaks" have an awareness of their difference, their ability to think for themselves.
Libra/Libra Rising* (Sep 23-Oct 22): Venus blazes a new trail in your seventh house of partnership and the "other" through Aries until March 5. When you become too indecisive, you desire your "other" to become pushy, direct and even aggressive. Then, decision making gets easier ... follow or leave. Keeping your eye out defensively does not always work. Be unique but trust yourself to be real. Anytime any planetary teacher moves through Aries, you learn to be in the moment, standing up courageously for what or who really matters. Realize it is not about your serving another person as it is more about your serving a mutually agreed upon ideal or value within the relationship. Submissiveness is not synonymous with being weak, not at all. If you need reminding, wear red, a fiery color to symbolize your increased spirit and self-affirmation. Oh, and how are you a freak? It all comes down to your idea of fairness and social justice (or lack of it).
