BIONIC SHOES Wednesday, October 15
Police in Japan’s Kyoto Prefecture raided a shoe manufacturer in July and commandeered a list of about 1,500 purchasers of the company’s signature “tosatsu shoes” — shoes with built-in cameras. Investigators have begun visiting the purchasers at home to ask them to hand in the shoes (but, out of fairness, said they wouldn’t cause trouble for customers who could produce a legitimate reason for needing to take photographs and video by pointing the shoe at something).

“There is for everyone some one scene, some one adventure, some one picture that is the image of his secret life,” said Irish poet William Butler Yeats. Identify that numinous presence. Then celebrate and cultivate it. Give it special attention, pay tribute and shower love on it.

“Problems that remain persistently insoluble should always be suspected as questions asked in the wrong way,” said philosopher Alan Watts. You’ve either recently made a personal discovery proving this true, or you’ll soon do so.

SCORPIO: October 15-21 Wednesday, October 15
On a late summer day in 1666, scientist Isaac Newton was sitting under an apple tree in his mother’s garden in Lincolnshire, England. An apple fell from a branch, plummeting to the ground. A half-century later, he told his biographer this incident inspired him to formulate the theory of gravity. Fast-forward to 2010.

LIBRA: October 15-21 Wednesday, October 15
In 1936, Libran author F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote about the “crack-up” he’d experienced years earlier, including this tough realization: “I had been only a mediocre caretaker of most of the things left in my hands, even my talent.” This is a seed for your oracle.
