Free Will Astrology
Free Will Astrology Week of August 5, 2010
ARIES (March 21-April 19): The ancient Greek god Dionysus did not, in fact, encourage people to get sloppy drunk, lose control and do stupid things. His preference was that they free themselves from their inhibitions by imbibing moderate amounts of alcohol. With this medicinal spur, they might get unstuck from their worn-out old behavior patterns and invite refreshing doses of wildness into their lives. Healing was the intention, not craziness and frenzy. It is true that if someone was not willing to escape their rigidity—if they clung to their hidebound attitudes and refused to open up to the call of self-transformation—Dionysus might lure them into reckless inebriation. Keep these thoughts in mind in the coming weeks, Aries.
