Holoscopes - Issue 10

By Lae - Posted Sep 3, 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)
Constant routines lead to long-term legacies. Excellence is a matter of habit, and even though you may think you do not like routine tasks, you actually excel at them now. Envision how your work leads to your greater contribution, and the minor issues will melt away. If you keep your eyes on the end result, your natural fire will burn a clear path through any complications. The world needs your vision and your follow through to blaze a trail for others.

Reek:
(Taurus - Apr 20 - May 20)
A dalliance or a new commitment is all about someone else now. Although you might not yet know how an unfolding relationship fits into your life, there’s no need to clear up this matter just yet. Simply take the time to enjoy their presence in your life and have some fun. The best partnerships continue to cultivate an element of joy in them. Laughter strengthens bonds like nothing else. Play now and let labels catch up with you later.

Twi'lek:
(Gemini - May 21 - Jun 20)
You are what you eat, and diet is a serious foundation for your health. One benefit of paying closer attention to what you put in your body is the positive influence of these improvements on other areas of your life, including home and relationships. The simple routine of prepping your meals reminds you to keep a clean kitchen and to mind any chaos that comes from cooking. Find joy in the practical aspects of everyday living.

Acklay:
(Cancer - Jun 21 - Jul 22)
As you sort through the vast stores of information in your life, a short trip breaks the energy and brings pleasure amidst your busyness. Your head and heart are engaged in a classic game of tug-of-war. Obviously, you must get your chores done, yet a friendly flirtation distracts you, reminding you of the passing days of summer. Indulge your fantasies but keep your wits about you to ensure that your responsibilities do not fall behind. If anyone can figure out how to have your cake and eat it too, it’s you.

Nexu:
(Leo - Jul 23 - Aug 22)
It is always a good bet to invest in your heritage. No one can take your ancestry away from you. Over the past month, you may have questioned your deepest values and even found some surprising answers. However, taking a closer look now can reveal a rich storehouse of useful information. You might have missed something that ends up being a sweet discovery and brings a deeply fulfilling part of yourself home to you. No risk, no reward.

Hapani:
(Virgo - Aug 23 - Sep 22)
The perfect words arrive just in time this month. Although your delivery may not be perfect, it gets the job done -- and something is better than nothing. All relationships rely on clear communication. The trouble with family is they have a hard time seeing you in the now. They much prefer to see you as your younger self. When you take the time to express your current feelings and share your experiences, you can help bring others up to speed and revitalize your connection. Honest hearts product honest actions.

The Force:
(Libra - Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Sorting through old possessions takes serious work. The emotional labor is high when every object evokes a corresponding memory, and nostalgia leads you through a complex labyrinth. As you navigate through this maze, keep a pen nearby to write down your thoughts and feelings. Rich material for stories hides in these recollections. Each time you set an object aside, consider how replacing it will unleash your inner radiant joy.

Mynock:
(Scorpio - Oct 23 - Nov 21)
You may have a friend who loves expensive restaurants and luxury accommodations, and you feel compelled to go along even if it isn’t in your budget. You might be exceptionally generous this month, but even that has its limits. The pressure to please your companion is real, and also avoidable once you recognize it. Think about other ways you can entertain without breaking your bank. Take to heart the pithy maxim: the best things in life are free.

Ewok:
(Sagittarius - Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Your ideas are flying off the wall and your positivity is contagious. However, staying grounded is essential if you want to preserve energy for later. Plan your month or you could end up wasting time on that which gives nothing in return and all you are left with is a feeling of disappointment. Keep it real, stay true to yourself and don’t try to convince others to think like you do. Lead by example and not by command.

Moof:
(Capricorn - Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Any good mountain also has a cave -- at least in fairy tales. Thankfully, the solitude you seek is finally at your fingertips. Although you aren’t likely geographically remote from your usual life, you’re able to retreat enough to pretend you’re in an exotic cave. Ground your sensations into improvements in your goals and intentions. Concentrating on physical manifestation is the most prudent use of this spiritual retreat.

Selkath:
(Aquarius - Jan 20 - Feb 18)
You discover allies on your professional journey this month. Take inventory of your partners and decide if they are serving your ultimate good. Your values need to match closely when you work intimately with people. If there is a clash, mission drift will occur and lead you to the wrong shore. Check in with yourself and make sure you are aligned with the right folks. If not, the sooner you can extricate yourself the better. Your prosperity will flourish all the more for your discernment.

Firaxan:
(Pisces - Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Someone close to you is rocketing into the stratosphere now. You might secretly wonder whether you can keep up. You question the equality in your relationship and whether it suits you and your own ambitions. Although the situation isn’t easy, it is necessary to handle the current power dynamics if the connection is to remain fair and balanced. Take some time to lose yourself in a good book, a foreign film, or anything that can give you some outside perspective. Enjoy yourself in a separate arena, and a solution may arrive when you least expect it.

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