FREE WILL ASTROLOGY
Week beginning November 7

Grammar key: Asterisks equal *italics*
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Studies suggest that on average each of us has
a social network of about 250 people, of whom 120 we regard as a closer
group of friendly acquaintances. But most of us have no more than twenty
folks we trust, and only two or three whom we regard as confidants. I
suspect that these numbers will be in flux for you during the next twelve
months, Scorpio. I bet you’ll make more new friends than usual, and will
also expand your inner circle. On the other hand, I expect that some people
who are now in your sphere will depart. Net result: stronger alliances and
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I blame and thank the Sagittarian part
of me when I get brave and brazen enough to follow my strongest emotions
where they want to lead me. I also blame and thank the Sagittarian part of
me when I strip off my defense mechanisms and invite the world to regard
my vulnerabilities as interesting and beautiful. I furthermore blame and
thank the Sagittarian side of me on those occasions when I run three miles
down the beach at dawn, hoping to thereby jolt loose the secrets I’ve been
concealing from myself. I suspect the coming weeks will be a favorable
time to blame and thank the Sagittarian part of you for similar
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Persian polymath Avicenna (980–1037)
wrote 450 books on many topics, including medicine, philosophy,
astronomy, geography, mathematics, theology, and poetry. While young,
he tried to study the *Metaphysics* of Aristotle, but had difficulty
grasping it. Forty times he read the text, even committing it to memory.
But he made little progress toward fathoming it. Years later, he was
browsing at an outdoor market and found a brief, cheap book about the
*Metaphysics* by an author named al-Farabi. He read it quickly, and for
the first time understood Aristotle’s great work. He was so delighted he
went out to the streets and gave away gifts to poor people. I foresee a
comparable milestone for you, Capricorn: something that has eluded your
comprehension will become clear, at least in part due to a lucky accident.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In addition to being a key figure in
Renaissance art, fifteenth-century Italian painter Filippo Lippi had a
colorful life. According to legend, he was once held prisoner by Barbary
pirates, but gained his freedom by drawing a riveting portrait of their
leader. Inspired by the astrological factors affecting you right now, I’m
fantasizing about the possibility of a liberating event arriving in your
life. Maybe you’ll call on one of your skills in a dramatic way, thereby
enhancing your leeway or generating a breakthrough or unleashing an
opportunity. (Please also re-read your horoscope from last week.)
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “Stand high long enough and your lightning
will come,” writes Piscean novelist William Gibson. He isn’t suggesting
that we literally stand on top of a treeless hill in a thunderstorm and
invite the lightning to shoot down through us. More realistically, I think
he means that we should devotedly cultivate and discipline our highest
forms of expression so that when inspiration finds us, we’ll be primed to
receive and use its full power. That’s an excellent oracle for you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Aries psychologist James Hillman said we
keep “our images and fantasies at arm’s length because they are so full of
love.” They’re also quite flammable, he added. They are always on the
verge of catching fire, metaphorically speaking. That’s why many people
wrap their love-filled images and fantasies in metaphorical asbestos: to
prevent them from igniting a blaze in their psyches. In my astrological
opinion, you Aries folks always have a mandate to use less asbestos than
all the other signs—even none at all. That’s even truer than usual right
now. Keep your images and fantasies extra close and raw and wild.
WHY IS IT CALLED “FREE WILL” ASTROLOGY?
It’s called Free Will Astrology because my goal is to create horoscopes that
nurture your free will.
Contrary to what some horoscope fans believe, there’s no such thing as
predestination. Fate is a tricky sucker that keeps changing its mind about
where it wants to go. The stars may impel, as the astrological saying goes,
but they don’t compel.
That’s why I’ve never considered myself a fortuneteller. I prefer to think
that my greatest service is as a psychic intelligence agent, helping you
explore the hidden patterns and unconscious forces that may be affecting
your life without your full knowledge.
If I “predict” anything, it’s not so much the future as the unknown part of
And if you ever want more than the ‘scopes you’re reading here, keep in

“I always feel like I know myself better after listening to your audio

“Your audio horoscopes calm me down when I’m too manic and pep me up
when I’m down.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Poet James Merrill was ecstatic when he
learned the Greek language. According to his biographer, he felt he could
articulate his needs “with more force and clarity, with greater simplicity
and less self-consciousness, than he ever could in his own language.” He
concluded, “Freedom to be oneself is all very well; the greater freedom is
not to be oneself.” Personally, I think that’s an exaggeration. I believe the
freedom to be yourself is very, very important. But for you in the coming
weeks, Taurus, the freedom to not be yourself could indeed be quite
liberating. What might you do to stretch your capacities beyond what
you’ve assumed is true about you? Are you willing to rebel against and
transcend your previous self-conceptions?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Musician Brian Eno made a deck of oracular
cards called Oblique Strategies. Each card has a suggestion designed to
trigger creative thinking about a project or process you’re working on.
You Geminis might find it useful to call on Oblique Strategies right now,
since you’re navigating your way through a phase of adjustment and
rearrangement. The card I drew for you is “Honor thy error as hidden
intention.” Here’s how I interpret it: An apparent lapse or misstep will
actually be the result of your deeper mind guiding you to take a fruitful
CANCER (June 21-July 22): We devote a lot of energy to wishing and
hoping about the meaningful joys we’d love to bring into our lives. And yet
few of us have been trained in the best strategies for manifesting our
wishes and hopes. That’s the bad news. The good news is that now is a
favorable time for you to upgrade your skills at getting what you want.
With that in mind, I present you with the simple but potent wisdom of
author Maya Angelou: “Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it.” To
flesh that out, I’ll add: Formulate a precise statement describing your
heart’s yearning, and then work hard to make yourself ready for its
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): What are the key parts of your life—the sources
and influences that enable you to be your most soulful self? I urge you to
nourish them intensely during the next three weeks. Next question: What
are the marginally important parts of your life—the activities and
proclivities that aren’t essential for your long-term success and
happiness? I urge you to corral all the energy you give to those
marginally important things, and instead pour it into what’s most
important. Now is a crucial time in the evolution of your relationship
with your primal fuels, your indispensable resources, your sustaining
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “When she spoke of beauty, he spoke of the
fatty tissue supporting the epidermis,” wrote short story author Robert
Musil. He was describing a conversation between a man and woman who
were on different wavelengths. “When she mentioned love,” Musil
continued, “he responded with the statistical curve that indicates the rise
and fall in the annual birthrate.” Many of you Virgos have the flexibility
to express yourself well on both of those wavelengths. But in the coming
months, I hope you’ll emphasize the beauty and love wavelength rather
than the fatty tissue and statistical curve wavelength. It’ll be an excellent
strategy for getting the healing you need.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran blogger Ana-Sofia Cardelle was asked,
“What is your signature perfume?” She said she hadn’t found one. But then
she described how she would like to smell: “somewhere between fresh and
earthy: cinnamon and honey, a rose garden, saltwater baked in the sun.”
The coming days will be an excellent time to indulge in your own fantasies
about the special fragrance you’d like to emanate. Moreover, I bet you’ll
be energized by pinpointing a host of qualities you would like to serve as
cornerstones of your identity: traits that embody and express your
