Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
One goal of meditation is to empty the mind of its obsessively generated thoughts, rationalizations, and images. Alas, much of the media functions as a reverse meditation machine. Not only does it stir up your own mental clatter, it also floods you with the seething surge of other people’s private pandemoniums. Furthermore, it delivers this rattling racket with entertaining words and brilliant color and crystalline sound, driving it as deeply into your psyche as your own flotsam. Keep this in mind throughout February, which is Clean Out Your Brain Month. Cut way back on your media intake. Snack lightly rather than gorging continually.
How amusing. Though, I think cleaning out my brain would be a good idea, not just in the media intake, but also in paring down the things that I have to pay attention to on a daily basis. Simplification, mostly in my schedule. Now to just get sleep.
