Month Ahead for October 2014
ARIES (March 20-April 19)
I’m sure you’ve noticed how people pretend that nobody notices how different they are. Then after a while people convince themselves that there’s nothing special about them. Even though you’re a bold, fiery Aries-type, you’ve done this — though it’s not going to work for you this month, if it ever did. A curtain comes up and an even deeper layer is available for everyone to see. It’s as if you will be revealing your spiritual spark in all that you do, and on one very meaningful level, this is all about sex.
TAURUS (April 19-May 20)
The environment of your relationships is a direct extension of your inner environment. And your inner world is changing in unusual ways — ways that will surprise you, and encourage you to let go of hangups that may have been lurking around for years. Work that out consciously and keep your inner focus. The result will be an expansion of the possibilities in your sexual relationship(s), which may start with some experience of the old way of doing/being not working. Then, all at once, you may notice an obvious shift, as if a new (and seemingly impossible) world arises.
GEMINI (May 20-June 21)
Sex and your ideas about it are so intimately woven into your being that there’s no way around it. Every meaningful facet of your life has threads that will lead back to this supposedly ‘special’ territory — though in truth it’s the most ordinary aspect of living in existence. Imagine if you could live that way — that sex, sexual relating, loving and exploring are part of everyday life rather than something unusual, taboo, wrong, sinful, controversial or whatever. The opposite to all of those things is ordinary. Everyday. And rather exciting, as such.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
All sex and all relationships exist within a group context. It may be a household, it may be a commune, it may be a town, it may be a company. The context either supports or weakens your relationships. This month you have the ability to make sure that your group contexts support you and your freedom to associate with outers. There is a beautifully rebellious energy in the air. Test boundaries, drop your old ideas about right and wrong, and most of all to live like you actually have some power and influence.
LEO (July 22-Aug. 23)
Remember, as in do not forget, ever, that the position of religion on sex is the most clever and manipulative marketing campaign in the history of society. As its hook, it uses a mix of natural biology and synthetic guilt. Then there’s a reversal — biology is made to seem sinister and guilt is portrayed as your friend and savior. Meditate on this for a week or two and you are bound to have some experience that shocks you to the full awareness that you are in fact free to do and feel whatever you want.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)
Sex, to be nourishing, must be based on a blend of emotional and physical experience. Yet the emotional side of the spectrum tends to put people in contact with their injuries, and this might be happening to you right now. The answer is obviously not to cut yourself off from your feelings. Rather, the idea is to go deeper into your emotional body, stay close to yourself, and unravel what has been choking you off for so long. This will only be challenging in the initial phases, before you’re aware of how good this feels.
LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 23)
You don’t always need to be on top — but sometimes you do, and if that is true, then just do it. Remember, this is not about dominating, it’s about accessing part of yourself, and exploring a particular shape of a relationship. Relationships can take many shapes and forms, all of them transient, each leading to the next. They are based on what you and your partner want to feel that moment. You can afford to take a chance — how someone responds will consistently surprise you. Remember, though: equality means freedom.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
If you cannot be free in your imagination, then where can you be free? I reckon this is why the imagination is such a point of controversy and why there are so many efforts to curtail fantasy and desire. I suggest you let yourself be entirely free from constraints or taboos, no matter what you may dream, envision or desire. Allow yourself to embrace the idea that your imagination contains a healing power, which will feel like oxygen that you can breathe in and allow to nourish and strengthen you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 22)
Everyone is a pervert. Everyone has kinks that say something truly meaningful about who they are. It’s just a matter of how honest they are about it, and whether they are willing to act on their desires. How many times have you heard yourself or anyone else say, “I would never actually do that.” But I am wondering why, exactly, you would say that. There must be a reason. I suggest you look at that reason carefully and decide whether it makes any sense at all.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)
From a psychic standpoint, the purpose of orgasm is to release internal pressure, which feels really, really good. From a spiritual perspective, you could say that the purpose of orgasm is to remind you that your true nature is cosmic and that you can glimpse at that every now and then. I would say the more often the better. You have plenty of internal pressure to fuel the process, though you could just as easily overlook that in the frantic pace of modern life. Slow down, take off your clothes and breath deliciously.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
Tell yourself the erotic stories that you want to hear — and that you want to live out. Be radical about this. Go right to the core of your desires. Push your imagination to be utterly vivid, and pull back the veils. Doing this will make you quake a little, hesitate to write the next word, terrified and thrilled that someone else might see it. Your words have creative power that can modestly be described as revolutionary. You are ready for this. You’re ready to shake up your approach to sex and that of everyone around you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Two perennial themes for Pisces come up this month. The first is the one about masturbation being proto-sex. You know it’s not ‘this other obscure thing that people do as a substitute for sex’ — it’s the experience that powers your sexuality from the inside. Second is sex as your personal religion. Yes, religion has made sex its nemesis, which reminds me of Diet Pepsi making a cool mountain lake its nemesis (which is basically true). The place where sex meets god meets love is where you live, and that place is now welcoming you home.
