Libra 

For July 2012

Libra (September 22-October 23)
You’ve been learning a lot about fear the past few months—and soon, the topic switches to faith. Fear tends to live in a self-contained world. That world follows its own rules and has its own internal logic, which is self-serving and, as it turns out, self-defeating for you. I suggest you make a list of everything you’ve worried about since late autumn and then note how much has actually come to pass. Fear is largely a creature of the imagination, of misdirected creativity. Faith works differently. It opens you up to a world beyond yourself. It is a power that comes through you. Apart from any difference in the subject matter, the energy flow is worth observing, because it’s a useful way to figure out what you’re actually feeling. Simply, stuck is of the nature of fear and moving is of the nature of faith. This idea is in harmony with something that Joe Trusso, one of my teachers, once said: The opposite of depression is expression. The next few months are all about you expressing yourself in a bold way. Per the characteristic of faith, that expression can have the sensation of something flowing through you. That something is “beyond yourself” yet still distinctly recognizable as yourself. Among the seeming paradoxes we face in life, this is one of the most pleasant. We don’t often think of that thing beyond ourselves as part of us, though for sure this experience will help you recreate your understanding of who you are.
