what better time to do one of these...

1. How you are feeling at this moment, what is on your mind and the nature of your question.
INTOXICATED
a euphoric absence of suffering

Jupiter in Cancer or in the Fourth House


Amidst the daily toils of the labyrinth exist vertical pools of intoxicating bliss, where you can experience a temporaiy alleviation of suffering.

When pain subsides, what remains is your natural self: expanded & serene. The black storm clouds symbolize painful resistances still in eftect; blue skies, the partial clearing away of distress. It’s time to become more receptive to what feels good within and around you. Here, happiness isn’t necessarily a matter of belief so much as attitude. When emotional or psychic pain distort your attitude, you can let the hurt go

by dropping that attitude.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


2. The factors influencing you and what is happening around you.
POSSIBILITIES
a tendency for something to happen

Sun in Gemini or in the Third House

There’s good reason to be optimistic about the situation, as long as you realize it hasn’t

completely materialized. There are still options to consider. This tower represents a multi-purpose structure; equal parts laboratory, temple and watch tower. These three parts serve processes

of transformation, worship and perspective. Note the ambiguous light and weather; is it sunrise or sunset? Sunny or stormy? More ambivalent tones of change. An arc of cut diamonds conveys the desired results that

demand a skill for distilling from raw potential, an utterly brilliant crystallization. This takes time and commitment to one direction and a sacrifice

of other possibilities.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


3. The direction you need to take to resolve any problems before you.
ON-RAMP TO NOWHERE

an open-ended detour to your plans Mars in Pisces or in the Twelfth House

Your actions are about to take an unexpected turn. At first this new direction may seem vague or pointless. If you follow it, however, it may bring you places you never thought existed. Esoterically, this refers to the ancient Taoist practice of Wu-wei or, "aimless wandering", leading to the nowhere of now here. This image symbolizes a much needed break from familiar and circuitous routines. If you have the time, take the turn.

If you don’t have the time,

take the turn, anyway.

No matter where you go,

there you are!

they just performed this on the today show. more to come.

Artist Indigo Girls
Album Become You
Song become you


i heard you sing a rebel song
sung it loud and all alone
we can't afford the things you say
we can't afford the warranty

well i see you walking in the glare
down the county road we share
our southern blood my heresy
damn that old confederacy

it took a
long time to
become the thing
i am to you
and you won't
tear it apart
without a fight
without a heart

i'm sorry for what you've learned
(learned)
when you feel the tables turned
to run so hard in your race
(race)
now you found who set the pace

the landed aristocracy
exploiting all your enmity
all your daddy's fought in vain
leave you with the mark of cain

it took a
long time to
become the thing
i am to you
and you won't
tear it apart
without a fight
without a heart

it took a
long time to
become you
become you

the center holds so they say
(it never held too well for me)
it never held too well for me
(the center holds so they say)
i won't stop short of common ground
(that vilifies the trodden down)
that vilifies the trodden down
(i won't stop)

the center held the bonded slave
for the sake of industry
(ah)
the center held the bloody hand
of the execution man
(ah)

it took a
long time to
become the thing
i am to you
and you won't
tear it apart
without a fight
without a heart

it took a
long time to
become you
become you

it took a
long time to
become you
become you

"Life never comes to the aid of those who yield to some demand out of fear. But if you say: This is what I really want to do and I am going to pursue it - then you will find that something miraculous takes place. You may have to go hungry, struggle to get through, but you will be a worthwhile human being, not mere a copy, and that is the miracle of it. But you see, we don't want to invite life, we want to play a safe game; and those who play a safe game die very safely, Is that not so?"

Krishnamurti / Think on these things
