CAPRICORN: August 6-12 Wednesday, August 6
Kintsukuroi is a Japanese word that literally means “golden repair.” It refers to fixing cracked pottery with lacquer blended with actual gold or silver. Metaphorically, it suggests something may become more beautiful and valuable after it’s broken. The wounds and healing of the wounds are integral parts, not shameful distortions to be disguised or hidden. Does that sound like your current experience? Call this the kintsukuroi phase of your cycle.

Near the end of his career, painter Henri Matisse created a paper-cut composition, Le Bateau, or The Boat. It’s an abstract piece that does not depict a literal boat. That’s why the Museum of Modern Art in New York may be forgiven for mistakenly hanging it upside-down in 1961, upon first acquiring the piece. Fortunately, after a month and a half, a knowledgeable person noticed, and Le Bateau was corrected. Is a comparable phenomenon going on now? Is it possible a part of your life got inverted or transposed? If so, are you sharp enough to see the goof and brave enough to fix it?
LIBRA: September 10-16 Wednesday, September 10
Those who invoke the old metaphor about the caterpillar that transforms into a butterfly often omit an important detail: the graceful winged creature is helpless and weak when it first wriggles free of its chrysalis. It’s not ready to take up its full destiny.

“I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice,” said British author G.K. Chesterton, “and then going away and doing the exact opposite.” In my astrological opinion, no one can possibly give you accurate counsel in the weeks ahead. Your circumstances are too unique, your dilemmas too idiosyncratic for experts to understand, let alone those who think they own a piece of you. It might be useful to hear what everyone has to say about your situation, though. Knowing their mistaken or uninformed perspectives helps you get clarity.
SCORPIO: September 10-16 Wednesday, September 10

SAGITTARIUS: September 10-16 Wednesday, September 10
You have cosmic permission to be bigger than life and wilder than sin. You have poetic license to be more wise than clever. Feel free to laugh longer than may seem polite and make no apologies as you spill drinks telling brash stories.
CAPRICORN: September 10-16 Wednesday, September 10
For 2,000-plus years, Chinese astronomers have understood the science of eclipses. Yet as late as the 1800s, sailors in the Chinese navy shot cannonballs toward lunar eclipses, hoping to chase away the dragons they imagined were devouring the moon.
