ARIES: July 30-Aug. 5
If a farmer plants the same crop in the same field year after year, the soil’s nutrients get exhausted. For instance, lettuce sucks up a lot of nitrogen. It’s better to plant beans or peas there the next season, since they add nitrogen back into the soil. Lettuce will do well in the field where the beans or peas grew last time. This strategy is called crop rotation. It’s your operative metaphor for the next 10 months. Your creative output will be abundant if you keep sowing each new “crop” in a fertile place where it’s most likely to thrive.
