The central issue is healing. You reach out and it seems as though you are putting too much effort into it. Doubts cloud your thoughts. There is someone in your environment who shows you that they can have a good time. What is their agenda? Strive for independence. Think of your life like crocheting a fine lace handkerchief. The start can be confusing with unstable loops until you have a solid base to create. You have to do it yourself. Something so fine can only handle one set of hands. You have a few more steps to go through. Stephen Leacock once said, “Life, we learn too late, is in the living, the tissue of every day and hour.”

The central issue for you this week is nuturance. Find out what makes you feel nurtured. You really are doing too much. Things can wait. Besides, you haven’t been able to channel your emotions properly with all the outer influences. You have been given shoes to fill that your feet are too small to fit yet. Now is the time to pay attention to details. By being particularly conscientious and conservative you will be on your way to development. I wish for you to experience harmony like Federico Garcia Lorca speaks of, “Not for a moment, beautiful aged Walt Whitman, have I failed to see your beard full of butterflies.”

The issues for you this week center around censorship. Maybe you are undecided on what you want. Maybe the cooperation levels have dropped. You feel uncertain. Yet the situation will improve. The difficulties you are experiencing now are only the result of a difficult beginning. You know exactly where you have to go for help. Go there and adapt. Everything will change then. Act fast. Marc Chagall once said, “For me a circus is a magic show that appears and disappears like a world. A circus is disturbing. It is profound.”

Lets talk about the spirit to initiate. You have become impatient with waiting. Obsessively watching the whole of things manifest has put you in a haze. Nothing is completely clear. Perhaps you feel like you are wasting your time? Nonsense. The problem exists in you not trusting your instincts. Open up and allow yourself to be influenced. What makes you feel rich? How can you show your true colors? Until a sincere and open rapport is established you will be unable to initiate action. Consider what Van Wyck Broods once said, “It is not that the French are not profound, but they all express themselves so well that we are led to take their geese for swans.”

Lets talk about being centered. You are pushing for an outcome before considering the consequences. Head-first, you are scratching and pecking for your desires and you do not care who knows it. In fact, you are quite vehement in your declarations to whomever will listen. Your thoughts are geared more toward totality, but you must know that gathering nourishment is a constant. Say you did get all you needed in one package? Before you get the chance to utilize the whole of it, some of it will spoil. You want to take care of yourself and the people around you and that is good. Little bits at a time is what will sustain you in the long range. William Harvey said, “The heart is the household divinity which, discharging its function, nourishes, cherishes, quickens the whole body, and is indeed the foundation of life, the source of all action.”

The issue is about finding something else to do. Life has obstacles, but this does not concern you at the moment. You are secure enough to stand alone and discerning enough to take care of yourself. Still there is a scattered puzzle in your head. Why do you feel as though you do not have a stable heart to lean on? You close your eyes. You leap. To relieve confusion, be very direct Aries. What would your mother tell you to do in a circumstance with constant disorder with no solutions to change it? Bite your lip and bide your time. It is important to choose your battles wisely. Think about the old proverb that says, “He that has no children brings them up well.”

The issue is about your doubts. You have felt as though the path you have been swimming is not the right one. Weighing your options, you have been treading water in one spot, trying to decide. Nobody really understands what is going on with you. You are talking quietly to your soul about your long-term plans. No races, no dramatics, no vying for position.. these have no place in your mind now. You are too tired emotionally and trying to build up the energy to stay afloat. You are going to be okay, sweet Aries. If staying afloat is what you want, that is what you will get. You may have to come up with new and inspired ways to make things work out, but I believe in you. You will be successful. George B. Emerson said, “Each man’s task is his life preserver.”

The issue is about not receiving. You are very sure about your purpose. However, you are using your intellect to avoid surrendering to what is real. This is because you have been caught off guard and knocked over by what life has offered you. There is a detour in the direction you are headed. Expressing your feelings is difficult. Maybe you are not supposed to be with certain people. Maybe it does not fufill your needs. However, it is important to realize there are still reasons to join together with them. Change is coming. Be ready to change. Elizabeth Lesser wrote,
“We’re all bozos on the bus,
so we might as well sit back
and enjoy the ride.
One of my heroes is the clown-activist, Wavy Gravy. He is best known for a role that he played in 1969, when he was the master of ceremonies at the Woodstock festival. Since then, he’s been a social activist, a major “fun-d” raiser for good causes, a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavor, an unofficial hospital chaplain, and the founder of a children’s camp for inner city kids. Every four years he campaigns as a candidate for president of the United States, under the pseudonym of Nobody, making speeches all over the country, with slogans like “Nobody for President,” “Nobody’s Perfect,” and “Nobody Should Have That Much Power.” He’s a seriously funny person, and a person who is serious about helping others. “Like the best of clowns,” wrote a reporter in The Village Voice, “Wavy Gravy makes a big fool of himself as is necessary to make a wiser man of you. He is one of the better people on earth.”"

The issue is about who is on top and who is on the bottom. You are having difficulty trusting others. The truth is that you are talking too much and therefore cannot possibly know what is happening inside of your head. This is a time of instability. Your emotions are insecure. Your spirit yearns for adventure. Be careful. What you think is holding you back is not. What you think is giving you freedom is not. Be clear about your priorities. Things are about to erupt. Step back. Take a timeout. Strengthen yourself. D. H. Lawrence said, “Those that go searching for love only make manifest their own lovelessness, and the loveless never find love, only the loving find love, and they never have to seek for it.”

The issue is about getting rid of what you do not want. Do you have enough energy to play ball? Your head is not in the game and therefore you are not dribbling well. There is something else on your mind and you would rather sit home. You have to decide for the sake of the team. When I don’t want to do something, my mother always said to keep in mind, ‘its only an hour more before I can do what I want’ or ‘its only a day’. This seems to work pretty well. Find an attitude of indifference and it will allow you to play ball with a cooperative nature. Limitations are a part of life. They make us stronger. Accept people for themselves and their limitations. Bud Wilkinson said, “If a team is to reach its potential, each player must be willing to subordinate his personal goals to the good of the team.”

The beauty of being an Aries is your innocence and ability to leap into the unknown. This week will be about action. You have listened carefully to the ideas of others and somehow they seem more important than your own. You know that they have your best interests at heart and you return the favor by keeping their interests in mind. It isn’t about trying to control the situation or creating a dramatic effect. You just know that change is necessary. You make them very proud. They support you. George William Curtis said, “A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers and woods, but it is a principle; and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.”

You have come out from the other side of a great thievery. Where are they hiding now? You are trying very hard to move past your fears of the past. Suffering is something that you are no stranger to and this has made you stronger. What was stolen from you? Your time? You seem to be spending an awful lot of time extending yourself. Find the place where you can stand that gives you a choice. Should you stay or should you go? Try to get a view of how others have handled situations similar to the one you are in and stop yourself from acting out. Hold fast to your convictions and do not give anyone a say in your matters. The truth is that you will know better. Alexandre Dumas said, “The man of genius does not steal, he conquers.”

There is a constant need being expressed to you over and over again. You avoid the conflict, however, and instead offer ideas that initiate plans. There is a new phase of development within your spiritual body that washes over you. Your hesitation in taking something that is being offered shows that caution will help you to preserve your goals. Let your conscientious be your guide. Choose the middle road. Someone once said, “To give or to take too much, results in an imbalanced situation.”
