Rob Brezsny's Freewill Astrology

Long ago, when I was an undergraduate at UCSC, there were wild and interesting weekly newspapers to read: our own City on a Hill, the Independent, and Good Times. One of them had a delightfully strange astrology column by one Rob Brezsny, which we never failed to read and clip favorite items from.
Rob is still writing astrology columns, but now you can get them via email. They are not quite as demented as in the days of yore (or so I think from my more jaded standpoint), but they are still wondrous to read and tend to have good advice.
In addition to horoscopes, Rob writes books (which I am looking forward to reading) and has a band whose songs you can hear at his site.
This week, Rob writes (among other things) that:

The poet Muriel Rukeyser said the universe is composed of stories, not of atoms. The physicist Werner Heisenberg declared that the universe is made of music, not of matter.

And we believe that if you habitually expose yourself to toxic stories and music, you could wind up living in the wrong universe, where it's impossible to become the gorgeous genius you were born to be.

That's why we implore you to nourish yourself with delicious, nutritious tales and tunes that inspire you to exercise your willpower for your highest good.”

This week, my own horoscope is:
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I know people who love the feeling of family but who don't have much contact with their parents and siblings and haven't started their own broods. Instead, they quench their longing for an intimate network by hooking up with a spiritual family--a tribe of like-minded people who share their values. The coming months will be prime time for you to either find a group like that or, if you already have one, to deepen and expand your web of connections. You don't have to sacrifice your relations with your biological kin to do so. The more family you have, the better your mental health will be.

I encourage all my readers to find out what kind of splendid suggestions await the other signs of the zodiac.
