Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19) Week of June 4, 2007

At a railroad crossing, an automobile is wrecked by a train.  ~~sabian symbol     (5º Cancer)

The issue is depletion.  You are immobilized.  Who is to blame?  Are there any fingers to point?  Do you point at yourself?  Do you point at others?  You feel as though you have been steamrolled.  How can you possibly pretend to feel good about any of this?  You will lose something this week.  My favorite part is that you will make a concerted effort not to repeat the same old emotional mistakes.  You will step back.    You won’t be the only one confused.  Simplify, Capricorn.  Simplify your reactions.  Simplify your communication.  And simplify your attachments.  Yet give those you love reassurance.  Joseph Campbell wrote, “Nietzche was the one who did the job for me. At a certain moment in his life, the idea came to him of what he called “the love of your fate.” Whatever your fate is, whatever the hell happens, you say, “This is what I need.” It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a challenge. If you bring love to that moment — not discouragement — you will find the strength is there. Any disaster you can survive is an improvement in your character, your stature, and your life. What a privilege! This is when the spontaneity of your own nature will have a chance to flow.

Then when looking back at your life, you will see that the moments which seemed to be great failures followed by wreckage were the incidents that shaped the life you have now. You’ll see that this is really true. Nothing can happen to you that is not positive. Even though it looks and feels at the moment like a negative crisis, it is not. The crisis throws you back, and when you are required to exhibit strength, it comes.”
