haikus + astrology = magic

Jonathan Ball (registered fraud) writes a weekly column called haiku horoscopes. My favorite one this week is for Leo:

"Sure, Bigfoot’s in a
Video, but can he act?
I’ve heard that it’s forced"

value and self-worth

I've been reading Houses of the Horoscope by Alan Oken. There's a section that, I feel, describes the lessons those with Taurus prominant in their charts need to work through:

"This is an individual who has come to earth to learn about the real values of life. Such values may take material or monetary form, but external financial considerations may also be a test - a veil which the Taurean has to pierce in order to understand his or her true self-worth."

I'm a sun sign Taurus. My sun is in the 6th house so I often find lessons of real values and true self-worth coming up in my work, as well as the practical details of life. I've been learning to not define myself by my work so much and that my value as a person doesn't come from my work. I've also been learning to not allow money (or anything else outside of me) to determine my level of self-worth.

If you have issues with self-worth, looking at where Taurus lands in your chart may help you to figure out what you need to work on/let go of.

the compatibility conundrum

Sometimes people seek out information about astrology to learn if they are compatible with certain people. The result is they often end up confused about astrology because of the conflicting answers they receive. The confusion is inevitable since their search doesn't delve any deeper than the sun sign level. And most the time they already know the answer they're looking for. So, if you're exploring astrology to find out *if* you are compatible with someone, don't waste your time (or money, in some cases). Ask yourself how you really feel and what you really want. Trust yourself. If you're exploring astrology to learn *how* to create better relationships with the people in your life and to learn more about others, as well as yourself, then, um, carry on. hee.

beginnings

For me, whenever the Sun is in Aries it is a time to ponder new beginnings. It makes me wonder about the seeds I'd like to replant in my life and the new seeds I want/need to try out. From Pisces we gather the faith to begin again. Aries gives us the energy and courage to get started.
