Brezsny at the Liminal Borders

I've always loved Rob Brezsny's Freewill Astrology column, which runs in numerous alternative papers nationwide. While any of his musings can be considered archetypal and thus, applicable to us all, the last two weeks for my sign, Aquarius, seem to hold significant inclusive power. I was so inspired by them that I wanted to share excerpts with you. They're especially interesting, given the echoes of other recent posts on dreaming a new world into reality:

On the boundaries where things shapeshift: "They are where all the most interesting action will be, as well as the teachings you need most...Pay close attention to your dreams for clues, and muse on this list:
* goodbyes that morph into awakenings;
* banishments that become pilgrimages;
* adversaries who transform into allies;
* decay that alchemizes into splendor;
* serpent energy that turns into spiritual fire."

"Here are a few of the interesting developments I expect that you will have enjoyed by the end of September:
* unexpected revelations about your past;
* a deeper commitment that spawns more freedom;
* an ethical use of smoke and mirrors for the most important hocus-pocus of the year;
* unheard-of emotions that are so transformative they make pain unnecessary; and, speaking metaphorically here
* a night journey down a dark road that leads to a pile of coal where a huge diamond is hidden."

You may also enjoy his book Pronoia: How the Whole World Is Conspiring to Shower You With Blessings, which is chock-full of positive tips and tales for transformation; it may take you months to read it all (hint: the pages are not exactly written in a linear style...)
