Holoscopes - Issue 8

By Lae - Posted Jul 2, 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’re pumped and ready to change the world now. All your recent connections have prepared you for an intense major transition. Luckily, you can efficiently heed the call in a way that isn’t overwhelming if you’re thoughtful in your process. If you find yourself becoming too detached, zoom back in and think about how people will be affected by your actions. As the month rolls in, set your big-picture goal and break it into small steps to forge the pathway. What’s for you is for you; burning bridges isn’t necessary when you can build them instead.

Reek:
(Taurus - Apr 20 - May 20)
The good news is what you envisioned is possible now. Call upon your power players and friends in high places for support and reflection. Reach out from a place of strength, and not neediness. Generosity comes full circle, so what you give, you will receive. Remember that what you admire in others is also present in yourself; dig deep to unearth some of the qualities you feel you lack. Like the roots of a tree, the deeper the depths, the higher the heights.

Twi'lek:
(Gemini - May 21 - Jun 20)
You’re on a quest for higher truth now, and your success demands impeccability in word and deed. Just as your muscles tear during a workout in order to strengthen and grow, pain indicates expansion. Focus on your discipline this month. Take time to discern what’s best before committing to anything binding. Will the offer bring new life, or is it a long walk off a short plank? Developing mental, emotional and spiritual musculature is just as important as physical exercise. Eliminate what doesn’t help you evolve.

Acklay:
(Cancer - Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Your magnetism is your superpower, so you don’t have to chase when everyone is drawn to you. Others can’t help but be attracted to a fresh spark in your energy that is both subtle and magnanimous. Boundaries are sexy, so don’t forget your built-in shell protection. This month’s presentations can set the stage for new frontiers in partnership and professionalism as the month unfolds. You’ll know who to let in and what to receive if you simply trust your intuition.

Nexu:
(Leo - Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Connecting from the heart is one of your sweetest strengths and it’s extra important to express your feelings now. The truth shall set you free, perhaps even from old wounds you thought were healed long ago. Remember to be reciprocal in conversation -- you can only get what you give. If you find yourself slipping into logical analysis, come back to how you feel. Although this month’s vibe is more cerebral for you, stay in touch with your emotions as best you can, and watch the miracles occur.

Hapani:
(Virgo - Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Choose carefully what you put on your plate this month. You have an endless supply of cosmic support in anything that requires single-minded focus. Be sure to keep that laser-eye attention to detail on projects at hand, rather than projecting on those closest to you. If you’re feeling overwhelmed now, remember that physical sickness often results from an energetic imbalance. Where do you need to tell the truth? Who are you not forgiving? How have you overextended yourself? Come clean, clear the fog, and watch new life blossom.

The Force:
(Libra - Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Wake up and feel the joy rising on a brand-new day. Instead of analyzing your emotions, immerse yourself in them. Your feelings reflect your relationship with yourself. But how you interact with others is important too, so reveal your passion when given the chance. If anything feels unsettling this month, use your airy ability to stay in flow. Let go of requiring a particular outcome, especially when it comes to other people’s actions. Rely on your inner compass to guide you exactly where you need to be.

Mynock:
(Scorpio - Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Although it seems as if you’ve gained the world but lost your soul, try not to panic as it’s never too late. Shifting your perspective around your concept of home is the first step to reclaiming your center. Whether it is clearing out clutter or reconnecting with a relative, don’t minimize the importance of having a solid foundation on which to build. You are ready to rise like a Phoenix; just make sure your spiritual core is set to hold down the fort. You’ll feel both competent and supported when you worry less about external events and tend to your inner game.

Ewok:
(Sagittarius - Nov 22 - Dec 21)
You’re busy as a bee and the air is abuzz with communicative vibes. All you want to do is connect with the people around you. As this lively Sunday starts a fresh calendar month, your loving nature takes on an elevated tone. Don’t wear rose-colored blinders, but also don’t settle for second best. Talk it out and use discernment. The cosmic weather supports your efforts if you have to make some adjustments to ensure the offer is worth your while.

Moof:
(Capricorn - Dec 22 - Jan 19)
The truth is time is an illusion. You’ve got things to do and people to see, but are you too busy to notice the signs along the way? The cosmos is always speaking, and miracles happen hourly. This month’s stars call you to come back to center; no extremes necessary. If you’re feeling too impulsive, think before swiping your credit card. If you’re too rigid, shake it off and breathe. When you maintain your core values and trust the self-correcting universal order, nothing can knock you off your square.

Selkath:
(Aquarius - Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Reinventing yourself is a smart move while the Force is conspiring for your success. Whether it’s your appearance or your approach, be willing to see things from a different angle. Maintain your light-hearted demeanor as the new month begins, and you may be surprised by the loveliness that enters your sphere. When you speak your truth in a warm and sincere way, people can’t help but rise to meet your pleasantries. Be open to miracles, whether they come through internal personal breakthroughs or your interactions with others.

Firaxan:
(Pisces - Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Plenty of passion moves beneath the surface this month. You feel deeply and intensely, but in an etheric, surreal way. Perspective is everything, but sometimes illusions abound. When objective reality isn’t so readily apparent, go someplace new for fresh inspiration. Explore a different culture, whether through film or an unknown neighborhood or city. You’ll receive a boost of mental clarity to cut through the fog. Take pleasure in other ways of being, and watch your own doors open to a whole new world.

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