Scorpio (December 23-November 21)
Three enlightened teenagers I know have formed a gang called The Disciples. It’s dedicated to plying the dangerous arts of humility, curiosity, and optimism — three qualities that are so undervalued in our culture as to be almost taboo. Here’s their motto, which reveals how far they’re willing to go in order to listen well, keep their egos in check, and constantly scour their surroundings for reasons to be grateful: “We have no issues and no problems, but only questions.” I urge you to start your own branch of The Disciples, Scorpio — or at least work on cultivating their approach.
Ya know, this might be the kick in the pants I need. I’ve been feeling a bit stagnant lately and the words I find describing me to be: empty, dispassionate, blank, ambivalent and various other forms of uninspired. It really sucks, really it does. I did a vision quest the other night, with my brother, and found it to be quite insightful. At some point I may detail it, if not here, on my spiritblog. I just have to filter out the symbolism and figure out which symbols go with what detail of my life. At either point, I know that there is peace on the other side of this hurdle, it’s just a matter of having the strength of mind to get through the trials that stand directly in front of me.
