Naivety Succeeds

Ask me anything   "We are what we pretend to be." -Kurt Vonnegut 24. Labors of love, perfume, Byronic heroes, the Michelangelo phenomenon, outdated slang, tea, and sunshine.

"There’s nothing wrong with being alone, you know. No good to somebody else unless you’re good with being with just you."

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
 Aries: This is a week for planning, it’s a week for looking to the weeks ahead of you and the skies above you, to the dreams that are waiting for you, the ones you haven’t quite dreamed yet. It’s a week for making plans, for making lists, for being active and real about building the life you want and the world you want to live in. Find all the bravery and the tools that you need. Go to the hardware store, go to the garden store, go to the fabric store, go to the library.
 Taurus: This is a week for watching the world move around you. It’s a world for listening to the sounds of the place you live in, all the wind or the cars or the birds outside your window. It’s a week to feel a little self-contained. It’s a week for stillness. It’s a week for staying home when you need to. Let your brain work quietly, let your thoughts gather, let them wander, let them grow strong. You can remember who you are, this week. You can remember where you’ve been. You can remember your own true name.
 Gemini: This is a week for talking so much, for telling your stories and your secrets, for letting your feelings out of your bones and out of your stomach and into the world. You don’t have to tell your stories to people who will not keep them safe, but don’t keep everything inside of you. Talk to friends, talk to strangers, talk to people who make you feel kind. Let the dark things that live inside you get some fresh air. Let them feel the warm afternoon sun. Listen to the songs that understand you best.
 Cancer: When you aren’t sure what to do this week, listen for music floating through your windows, music thumping out of cars, music through the walls of your house, music in the air, music in your head. Try not to worry about the things you can see. Try to live in the sound and vibration and motion of your world. It can guide you, it can help you move, it can make your days so bright. Listen to the first song you ever loved, the first album you ever bought, the first music that made you cry.
 Leo: You can find the best kinds of clarity this week. You can find the strangest kinds of happiness. You can find ways for your world to make sense. It’s a week for sorting through all the things in your house, all the thoughts in your head, all the moments of your life. If you work hard enough, if you keep moving, everything can come together when you don’t even expect it; your can get bright and beautiful and great. Read stories with happy endings, even if you think it’s silly, even if you don’t totally believe yet.
 Virgo: This is a week for taking long drives through the country or long bus rides in the city or long walks through the streets of your town. It’s a week for moving, for keeping your eyes open, for seeing every inch of your world that you can. Use your bright energy as much as you can this week. Try not to hold back. Try to be good to your friends, good to yourself, good to your world with whatever you have. Tire yourself out with all this joy, then sleep well and dream about the ocean.
 Libra: You might start to feel a little disoriented this week; you might move through the world unsure of where you are or where you’re going or where you want to be. It’s a week hold on to that feeling, to own it, to keep it in your pocket. Then stop and look around at all the blues and greens and golds in your world, all the patterns, all the clouds, all the faces. You can get your bearings back this week. You can remember where you are. You can learn new ways to love the world you live in.
 Scorpio: This week your heart might beat a little wild, your love might feel a little messy, you might feel like the whole world is disorder, you might feel like the whole world is a wild bright tangle. It’s going to be easy to forget that this week, you can do anything and not even be afraid. Try to remember this, repeat it to yourself, hold it when it’s dark at night. Try not to be afraid of your wildest energy, try to do everything you want to do. Try to let your messiest love grow generous and good.
 Sagittarius: The world might seem so big this week; it might feel so easy to get lost in all the futures that might exist, all the lives you might live. You can find reassurance in the strangest places, in the warmest places, in the smallest places. Spend your days outside, or in your kitchen, or in the library. Spend your days in the places where you remember who you are. Spend your days with people who are kind to you and people who will tell you the truth. Dream about forests, dream about the moon.
 Capricorn: This week, you’re going to see faces from your past and you’re going to see parts of yourself that you’ve forgotten about, parts of yourself you miss, parts of yourself you thought you’d never see again. You can feel the earth spinning, this week, and you can feel this funny world moving in spirals and loops, and you can feel its warmest rhythms. You can learn new ways to live, and you can remember old ways to live, and you’ll be okay. Swim in the ocean, swim in a lake, walk through a forest much older than you.
 Aquarius: This week the sky might feel big above you, and the ground might feel wobbly below. And you can get scared or you can let it thrill you, you can let it send bright energy all through your veins, you can let it open your whole world up to shining strange possibilities. As you move through your days, try to believe in this magic. Try to believe in the magic of these bright openings where anything can happen. Listen to songs with so many voices and do what you can to be brave.
 Pisces: If your days are hard to live in this week, you can stand up, you can walk out, you can shout, you can tell every bright and uncomfortable truth. This week more than ever, you don’t have to accept even the smallest unkindness, the smallest untruth, the smallest cruel thing. This week you can live like you have access to a bright golden magic. You can live like you’re a mythical creature. Read about magic and read about the future and dream about the life you want, dream about the world you want to live in.
