AQUARIUS: Jan. 30-Feb. 5


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Poet Jacob Nibengenesabe was a Swampy Cree member, a Canadian First Nation tribe. He wrote shamanic poems from the viewpoint of a magical trickster who could change into creatures. In one poem, the shapeshifter talked about the importance of being sure about what he wanted: “There was a storm once / That’s when I wished myself / to be a turtle / but I meant on land! / The one that carries a hard tent / on his back. / I didn’t want to be floating!” By poem's end, the shapeshifter decided, “I’ve got to wish things exactly! / That’s the way it is / from now on.” I hope that's your way from now on. See desires in intricate, exact detail.
