All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If Pope Francis isn’t traveling, he comes out
to meet the public in St. Peter’s Square every Wednesday. During one
such event last January, he took a few moments to bestow tender
attention on a talking parrot that belonged to a male stripper. I foresee a
comparable anomaly happening for you in the coming days. A part of you that is wild or outré will be blessed by contact with what’s holy or sublime. Or maybe a beastly aspect of your nature that doesn’t normally get much respect will receive a divine favor.
