AQUARIUS (January 20-February 19)
The inner life of an Aquarian is complex, and I trust that you are finally seeing the need to simplify. These mazes in which you get caught, the ones that have the names of family members scribbled in lipstick or shaving cream all over the mirrors and walls, take up space, and wandering through them takes up energy. The thing about a maze is, once you're in, you're in—so how do you get out?
Well, you can memorize the pattern from within and navigate toward the exit. You can try the psychic equivalent of pushing on one of the walls. If the walls are solid, you can climb on top to change your perspective and look around. You might call out to see if anyone else is in there with you someplace. When you find your way to the exit, keep going in some direction other than back in. Just remember—whatever the maze represents, it was there before you were born, and part of your quest for freedom involves going beyond the drama and futility that certain of your ancestors thought was normal. What is this structure made of? In a word, fear. And you have some awesome incentives for not being caught in something that has served humanity so poorly for so long.
You must know you're on the cusp of a big event or adventure. You may have the feeling of having endlessly prepared for something that you are now waiting to happen. Using birth as a metaphor, you're at that stage of the process where it's time to push. Initially, this will involve pushing your vision. That might mean writing the first draft of a new concept, rough as it is. This is about taking the initial tangible step toward creating something. Working with imagery will be genuinely helpful: imagery, that is, instead of a concept or idea. Describe in visual detail what you want to create. Don't worry about how, or what might go wrong—focus on what is affirmative. This may take some daily discipline. Create a space and make it happen.
When, suddenly, the momentum of your life shifts and events proceed faster and more tangibly than you imagined, these drawings or descriptions will prove to be vital. Don't be surprised if what you actually create far exceeds your initial concept.
