Happy Friday the 13th (a lucky day for those who dare to see positive outcomes in the midst of change.)
Instead of a traditional horoscope, I thought I'd offer a relaxing nature-based horoscope. So...
FIND YOUR NATUROSCOPE - July 15-July 21, 2007
Aries: Engage in a nature-loving activity you normally would avoid. Turn off the air conditioning, take a stroll in the rain, play in the mud (whether you have a child with you or not.)
Taurus: Stand still for a full five minutes. Listen to the sounds of nature. Embrace the music.
Gemini: Eat a food or herb fresh from the tree, bush, or soil. Take special note of its texture, flavor, and temperature.
Cancer: Make eye contact with a creature that does not speak your language. Try to communicate visually and experience a special moment between the two of you.
Leo: Observe a domesticated animal's movements and reactions. Watch for instinctively "wild" tendencies.
Virgo: Enjoy a picnic meal on the grass (not at a table) alone or with friends and family. No cell phones, iPods, or Gameboys allowed.
Libra: Examine the movement of a bug you would normally avoid. Marvel in the intricacies of a spider's web, the speed of a running beetle, or the strength of a tiny ant.
Scorpio: Spend an afternoon looking up and around. Take note of all the creatures and objects that make the air and sky their sometime homes.
Sagittarius: Watch the clouds and allow yourself to spend time enjoying their free television in the sky.
Capricorn: Using only natural objects (stones, sticks, grass blades), make music alone or with a special someone.
Aquarius: Take off your shoes and walk in the grass, dirt, or sand. Remind yourself that it's the earth that keeps us grounded (with a little help from gravity.)
Pisces: Notice all the colors that nature gives us. Imagine what pictures and designs you could create using the earth as a palette.
