Mercury, Neptune and Your Dreams

Before you go to bed tonight, command yourself to remember your dreams. They are not neural babble; rather, their significance crosses many layers of consciousness weaving netlike from the collective to the individual and back again. Dreams get more interesting as Mercury and Neptune align to infuse imagination with new fuel.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). A person who doesn’t know what good is cannot be happy. Your conscience may keep you from following a hedonistic path, but ultimately joy is better than pleasure.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Call the expert, Google the question on your mind, ask your mom. Do your research first, before you decide on a plan of action. Research will tell you what is not even worth pursuing.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Stress may be a fleeting reaction to the moment, but it also has long-term health ramifications. Learning more effective coping skills could actually help you live longer and will certainly help you live better.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re in a different place in your life than some of the people who are around you today, which is precisely why you have a lot to offer one another. The gift of a different perspective cannot be underestimated now.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like that people younger than you have things that weren’t available to you growing up. But sometimes younger people teaching the older ones can bring an unsettling dynamic.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are things that are richer than power and privilege, but sadly some people lack the ability to experience them or even believe they exist. That’s why your compassion is a much-needed force in the world.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You could worry about things not under your control, or you could channel that energy into the things you can do something about. More than likely, you’ll do a little of both.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A person doesn’t have to be lying to be totally wrong. There is a lot of misinformation in the world. Try not to read too much into the exchange of bad information.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The work you did last week is only now starting to be recognized by those whose opinions matter to your future. More than compliments, you want advancement — and that’s just what you’ll get.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People present the side of themselves that they want you to see and believe. You’re too keen to take that as the whole truth. You’ll see through the cracks of the faáade and address the reality.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be concerned with the larger implications of your activities. If a practice makes you skillful, blameless and happy, it’s something worth pursuing. If it brings a lot of garbage and politics into play, it’s not worth pursuing.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Seize the moment of silent reverence offered you. “No more words. In the name of this place we drink in with our breathing, stay quiet like a flower, so the nightbirds will start singing.” — Rumi

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 1). Your birthday brings confidence and clarity. A dry spell will end this month, and you’ll feel a fresh flow of excitement visit your realm of personal relationships. November pleasantly changes the direction of your work. Sell something of high value and reinvest in January. You’ll give an acceptance speech in March. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 48, 17, 41 and 39.

12 MAPS TO NOW: We sometimes stray so far from Now that we have trouble finding our way back. In the days to come, we’ll explore many ways to get back in synch.

MAP No. 3: Walk-itate. It’s like meditation and walking combined, but you’re unlikely to go into a trance. Instead, you’ll bring your mind and body into harmony and become more fully engaged in the physical plane.

As anyone who can’t walk can attest, walking is one of those daily miracles we take for granted. This isn’t a function of five muscles — the entire body and brain get involved to balance and move ourselves forward. Also, there must be a perfect timing of control and non-control. If too many muscles go slack at once, we wilt to the ground. If too many muscles are stiff and taut, we fall like a freshly chopped tree. Walking is a kind of coordinated process of falling and catching ourselves again and again until we get where we’re going.

And that’s something to think about while you walk-itate. Other thoughts: what your legs feel like moving through space, what your feet feel like as they connect to the solid ground, and what it means to be here, then here, then here.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Comedian, pianist and actor Zach Galifianakis also has the distinction of being immortalized in pop music in the song “Tonight Tonight” by Hot Chelle Rae. This Libra was born with the sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus all in the sign of the scales. With this much artistic Libran energy running through his natal chart, Galifianakis likely has other hidden talents he’ll showcase in the future.
