November 18, 2010: Rob Brezsney uses a quote from Ghost Fargo in his Capricorn Real Astrology:
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): "Do we love Heaven more than God?" asks poet Paula Cisewski in her book Ghost Fargo. I think that's the kind of cryptic question you Capricorns would benefit from mulling over in the coming weeks. Your mind needs to get its customary categories shaken up and rearranged . . . needs its habitual grooves broken up and diverted . . . needs its easy certainties flushed and abandoned. Can you think of any other queries that will help you accomplish this noble work? Let me offer a few to get you started: 1. Do we love love itself more than we love the people we say we love? 2. Do we fear failure so much that we interfere with our cultivation of success? 3. Do we obsess on our longing to such a degree that we miss opportunities to satisfy our longing?
