Make Room for Rumi

To find a pearl dive deep into the ocean

don't look in fountains

To find a pearl you must emerge from the water of life always thirsty.

Hmm - a water based Rumi appeared in my stars today ... and I thought of you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): "You've been walking the ocean's edge, holding up your robes to keep them dry," writes Coleman Barks in his translation of the 13th-century poet Rumi. What he means is that you've been too tentative and inhibited in your relationship with the tidal forces of love; you've been holding back from giving your total devotion to the primal power that fuels the universe. "You must dive naked under and deeper under," Barks and Rumi continue, "a thousand times deeper!"
Consider taking the poets' advice, Virgo. If you can't manage diving a thousand times deeper, try to least make it a hundred times. Happy Valentine Daze!

The source is Rob Brezny ...

(Until tomorrow) yours was:

Happy Valentine Daze, Aquarius! During this lover's holiday, I'm praying for you to have mind-boggling communions with smart-mouthed, quick-thinking virtuosos who are at least as brilliant as you. To be frank, I don't care whether or not these communions are with attractive members of your favorite gender. In accordance with the promises of your current astrological omens, I just want to see you stimulated to the point of spiritual and intellectual rapture by kaleidoscopic give-and-take sessions.
