VIRGO: May 1-7

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s the best week in a while to practice the art of crazy wisdom. What’s that? Novelist Tom Robbins described it to Shambhala Sun: It’s “a philosophical worldview that recommends swimming against the tide, cheerfully seizing the short end of the stick, embracing insecurity, honoring paradox, courting the unexpected, celebrating the unfamiliar, shunning orthodoxy, volunteering for tasks nobody else wants or dares to do, and breaking taboos to destroy their power. It’s the wisdom of those who turn the tables on despair by lampooning it, who neither seek authority nor submit to it.” Why? Robbins: “To enlarge the soul, light up the brain and liberate the spirit.”
