Holoscopes - Issue 7

By Lae - Posted Jun 4, 18

Ladies and gentlemen, beings and sentients of our fair Galaxy. From the far reaches of the Wild Space and beyond, I - Mystic Mog - have come forth to share with you the wisdom I have seen in the stars themselves. The Force has blessed me with foresight of the cosmos, and from that I divine forth what is in store for you the next month.

Heed this warning, dear readers, for the ebb and flow of the Force is forever changing. The future is a finnicky thing that even the most talented of us fail to fully interpret its meaning:

Nerf:
(Aries - Mar 21- Apr 19)
You believe you can talk about nearly anything this month, no matter how dicey or delicate the topic. Luckily, you receive a fair amount of cosmic support and it would be sad to waste this opportunity to share what's on your mind. However, you still could get swept up in your passion if you are not careful. Remembering the advantage of emotional detachment can save the day.

Reek:
(Taurus - Apr 20 - May 20)
People are very receptive to hearing about your latest plans, especially when your enthusiasm is so contagious. Fortunately, you are very astute in your observations this month, and your clear thinking enables you to explain your ideas without rambling on aimlessly. Although you might be hesitant at first to say anything at all, you’re thrilled when others offer you positive feedback and useful suggestions. Your simple declaration could lead to an in-depth discussion about your feelings, even if you meant to keep everything on the conceptual level.

Twi'lek:
(Gemini - May 21 - Jun 20)
You may grow annoyed enough to tell people off this month, but they could be so sympathetic with your situation that they don’t even notice your anger. Instead, people are offering to help you over the current obstacles. Nevertheless, their assistance isn’t what you really need now. The truth is you are entirely capable of untangling any misunderstandings on your own. A friendly ear and a strong shoulder will do the trick; you’re not looking to be rescued, only heard.

Acklay:
(Cancer - Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Although you appreciate the emotional support from those who respect you, you wish there was a little more distance between you and other people now. Naturally, you love that someone cares enough to go out of their way for you, but you don’t want anyone to make a fuss this month. In fact, you’re at your happiest moving through the day sight unseen. You can slip away for a short escape, but a full-scale retreat is unlikely at this time. 

Nexu:
(Leo - Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Someone may appear on the scene unsolicited to shout your message from the mountaintop. At first, you’re unsure if you like the idea of anyone speaking for you, but they might do such a good job that you’re quickly converted. Rather than overreacting because you’re too proud to accept help, reserve your judgement until you see how the situation plays out. Be open-minded about the possibility of collaboration. Think with your head, not with your pride.

Hapani:
(Virgo - Aug 23 - Sep 22)
You prefer to do things your own way and your attention to details normally works to your advantage because you like to build on tradition. You’re usually happy to repeat an established routine if it works, since reliability typically outweighs innovation in your mind. However, you might be ready to throw caution to the wind this month if you think you can increase your competitive edge in your race against the clock. 

The Force:
(Libra - Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Your career ambitions may take a back seat this month, especially if you’re ready for a day of rest and relaxation. But your current laid-back attitude is only a temporary pit stop on the road to your future. Although you might not seem very driven to others now, your internal cerebral activity is on overdrive. You’re uninterested in following someone else’s map to reach your destination; instead you’re eager to come up with a unique strategy to ensure your happiness and professional success.

Mynock:
(Scorpio - Oct 23 - Nov 21)
You approach your emotions from an intellectual position this month, enabling you to dig even deeper into your motives. You’re certainly not scared of your own shadow; it’s just that climbing down into the rabbit hole is lots easier than climbing back up. Nevertheless, exploring the unknown from the safety of your own home is exactly what you need to do now. Exercising caution and common sense is the key to unlocking the mysteries of your heart.

Ewok:
(Sagittarius - Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Someone may be talking directly to you, but you can’t decipher much of anything they say. Paradoxically, paying extra attention won’t likely make the message more intelligible. Rather than working yourself into a state of high anxiety this month, quit trying to establish meaning from everything. Sometimes it’s more important to accept a person just as they are rather than to understand them.

Moof:
(Capricorn - Dec 22 - Jan 19)
You’re fuzzy about the specifics of a job this month, leaving you unsure of your next move. You hear the assignment yet you’re at a loss as to where to begin and how to divide up your time in the service of this secret operation. There are so many pieces to the current jigsaw puzzle that you might feel uncharacteristically overwhelmed. There’s no more time for excuses; there’s only one way to begin a large project and that is to get started. Lean on your experience and your confidence will follow.

Selkath:
(Aquarius - Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Letting someone see past your wall of illusion changes everything now, opening your world to the possibilities ahead. It requires an impressive act of courage to express your feelings since you don’t know how people will react this month. Nevertheless, your integrity is at stake because you want your actions to be consistent with your emotions.

Firaxan:
(Pisces - Feb 19 - Mar 20)
You’re willing to discuss a problem that’s bothering you now, but you don’t want anyone poking around in your personal business. Unfortunately, your current craving for privacy leaves you with a serious dilemma. On one hand, you need help; on the other hand, you won’t let someone help you. Honor your intuition if it tells you to remain quiet this month. In the meantime, enjoy the simple pleasure of hanging out with your friends without any preconceived agenda. Count your rainbows, not your thunderstorms.

There you have it, folks. Your fortune told, fate unraveled.  Until next time. May the Force guide you.
- Mystic Mog
