ARIES: September 10-16 Wednesday, September 10
In the 2000 film Cast Away, Tom Hanks plays an American FedEx executive stranded alone on a remote Pacific island after he survives a plane crash. A few items from the plane wash up on shore, including a volleyball. He draws a face on it and names it “Wilson,” creating a companion who becomes his confidant for the next four years. Enlist an ally like Wilson next week.
ARIES: August 20-27 Wednesday, August 27
Don’t just be smart and articulate. Dare to be wildly wise and prone to unruly observations. Don’t merely be kind and well-behaved. Explore mysteries of healing through benevolent mischief. Don’t buy into the all-too-serious trances. Break up the monotony with unpredictable play and funny curiosity. Don’t go along with the stories everyone seems to believe as if they were the Truth and the Way.
CANCER: August 20-27 Wednesday, August 27
You wouldn’t sip dirty water from a golden chalice, right? Nor would you swig delicious poison from a fine crystal wine glass or 10-year-old vinegar from a queen’s goblet.
ARIES: August 6-12 Wednesday, August 6
Researchers in Peru have tracked down previously unknown varieties of wild cacao plants. That means there are exotic kinds of chocolate you and I have never known, and they’ll be commercially available in a few years. As delicious as your Chocolove XOXOX Extra Strong Dark candy bar may taste now, you’ll journey further into a new frontier of ecstatic delectability. Use this theme as a metaphor for the work ahead. It’s time to make good things even better, take fun diversions and transform them into experiences that engender transcendent bliss. Turn “yes” into “YESSSS!”
TAURUS: August 6-12 Wednesday, August 6
At your next meal, imagine the food is filled with special nutrients that enhance courage. During the meal after that, pretend you’re ingesting ingredients to boost perceptiveness. The next time you snack, visualize your food as infused with elements to augment the amount of trust you have in yourself. Then you’ll be ready to carry out next week’s assignment: Use your imagination to pump up courage and perceptiveness as you carry out smart adventures you haven’t trusted yourself enough to try.
GEMINI: August 6-12 Wednesday, August 6
Leaves and berries of the deadly nightshade plant are highly poisonous. If ingested, they cause delirium and death. On the other hand, a drug obtained from the same plant is on the World Health Organization’s list of essential medicines. It’s helpful in treating illnesses from gastrointestinal and heart problems to Parkinson’s. Is there a metaphorical equivalent in your life? An influence that can either be sickening or healing, depending on various factors? Now is the time to be focused on ensuring the healing effect predominates.
VIRGO: August 6-12 Wednesday, August 6
The literal meaning of the Swedish word smultronställe is “wild strawberry patch.” Metaphorically, it refers to a special place that feels like your private sanctuary. It may be hard to find or unappreciated by others, but for you it’s a spot that inspires you to relax deeply. You may have had a life-changing epiphany there. When you’re there, you have a taste of what it’s like to feel at home in the world. Do you have a smultronställe? If not, time to find one. If you do, spend more time there next week.
LIBRA: August 6-12 Wednesday, August 6
If I’m reading astrological omens right, bells are about to ring for you. Festive lights will flash, celebratory anthems throb. It’s like you’re going to win a fortune on a TV quiz show; or get an A+ on your final exam; or be picked as homecoming king or queen. It’s possible I’m a bit off, and your success will be subtler. Maybe you’re about to accomplish the healing of the year, or discover the secret of the decade.

In August, a Bradenton, Florida, deputy sheriff was forced to duplicate a classic scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark when he was advanced upon by a menacing-looking, samurai-sword-swinging, 31-year-old man. The deputy, perhaps as nonplussed as Indiana Jones was, shot him dead.
RULE NO. 9 Wednesday, September 24
The 15-year-old granddaughter of Cliven Bundy (the Nevada rancher whose dispute with the federal government caused a notorious standoff in March) told Las Vegas’ KSNV-TV that her dad (Bundy’s son) was withdrawing her from her high school because officials would not allow her to carry a knife on campus. She said her dad has taught his kids (just like Leroy Jethro Gibbs on NCIS) to “always” carry a knife.
