AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Bill Withers became a big star in the 1970s with hits like “Ain’t No Sunshine” and “Lean on Me.” But he hasn’t recorded a new album since 1985, nor has he toured. What happened? In *Still Bill,* the documentary film about his life, Withers says, “I watch other people show off and I say, man, I used to want to show off. If I could just get, you know, moved to. I need a little injection in my showin’ off gland.” I wish you could get an injection like that, too, Aquarius. I’d like to see you show off more. Not in a contrived, over-the-top, Lady Gaga-esque way. Rather, the purpose would be to get more aggressive in showing people who you are and what you can do. I want your talents and assets to be better known.

I’ve been getting some very good and necessary horoscopes lately.

Today is Cher’s birthday and that means its a special Cher edition of Madame Clairevoyant, courtesy of her bad-ass illustrator Jen May.
Aquarius: This week is going to mark some kind of shift for you, some kind of brightening, a sweet and surprising change. Spend your days outside and feel the way the air touches your skin. Spend your days at the ocean and fall asleep at night feeling salty and clean. Spend your days driving to places you’ve never been before, cooking things you’ve never made before, dreaming weird and brilliant dreams you’ve never quite dared to have before. The world is going to be good to you, this week. Take advantage of it. Get joyful, get weird, get wild.

This is the actual best thing ever.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “The far away, the very far, the farthest, I have found only in my own blood,” said poet Antonio Porchia. Let’s make that thought your keynote, Aquarius. Your assignment will be to search for what’s most exotic and unknown, but only in the privacy of your own heart, not out in the great wide world. For now at least, the inner realm is the location of the laboratory where the most useful experiments will unfold. Borrowing from novelist Carole Maso, I leave you with this: “Make love to the remoteness in yourself.”
— After a few weeks of especially terrible horoscopes, it’s very pleasing to get a nice one again.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Should you get down on your knees and beg for love and recognition? No! Should you give yourself away without seeking much in return? Don’t do that, either. Should you try to please everyone in an attempt to be popular? Definitely not. Should you dilute your truth so as not to cause a ruckus? I hope not. So then what am I suggesting you should do? Ask the following question about every possibility that comes before you: “Will this help me to master myself, deepen my commitment to what I want most, and gain more freedom?”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): When most Westerners hear the word “milk,” they surmise it has something to do with cows. But the fact is that humans drink milk collected from sheep, goats, camels, yaks, mares, llamas, and reindeer. And many grocery stores now stock milk made from soybeans, rice, almonds, coconut, hemp, and oats. I’m wondering if maybe it’s a good time for you to initiate a comparable diversification, Aquarius. You shouldn’t necessarily give up the primal sources of nourishment you have been depending on. Just consider the possibility that it might be fun and healthy for you to seek sustenance from some unconventional or unexpected sources.

Two star day.

You’ll come up short, over and over and over again. So don’t bother. The time to embrace reality has come—you’re never going anywhere or doing anything interesting with your life. In fact, you should just give up now and save everyone else the agony of hearing you complain.

I have a habit of reading my horoscope for hours when I am at my most depressed. If I were honest on OKCupid, it would say “Aquarius and it’s fun to think about,” but instead it just says “Aquarius” because I don’t want someone to get the wrong impression and think I put a lot of weight into it when I don’t.

But it’s fun to think about.

Of course, it was my mistake to look up the AstroSlam horoscope that’s offered through the horoscope app on my phone today, because I did not know AstroSlam offering is essentially a humorously mean piece of advice. When I read this—“you’re never going anywhere or doing anything interesting with your life”—after an hour of crying and feeling hopeless, it seemed like the moment in a television show where the heroine is at her lowest, doubted by all around her, and she reads something that seems to be mocking her just like everyone else is, and then she blinks and shakes her head and it is revealed what she saw was just her imagination doing its worst.

When I read this, trained by years of media absorption, I blinked furiously and shook my head, waiting for the writing to blear and fade away into something more optimistic. After a minute, the writing hadn’t changed, and I burst into tears all over again.

Right now you have license to make pretty much everything bigger and funnier and wickeder. Good fortune is likely to flow your way as you seek out experiences that are extra interesting and colorful and thought-provoking. This is no time for you to be shy about asking for what you want or timid about stirring up adventure. Be louder and prouder than usual. Be bolder and brighter, nosier and cozier, weirder and more whimsical. The world needs your very best idiosyncrasies and eccentricities!

Hey, thanks Rob Brezny! This week’s Free Will Astrology (the only horoscope I bother with, for the record, because its not really a horoscope at all) for Aquarians is badass. (via muscovite)

I know I have posted about my love of Free Will Astrology before but it never hurts to say it again.
