LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Avoid pain and pursue pleasure. Be kind, not cruel.
Abstain from self-pity and ask for the help you need. Instead of
complaining, express gratitude. Dodge time-wasting activities and do
things that are meaningful to you. Shun people who disrespect you and
seek the company of those who enjoy you. Don't expose yourself to
sickening, violent entertainment; fill your imagination up with uplifting
stories. Does the advice I'm offering in this horoscope seem overly simple
and obvious? That's no accident. In my opinion, what you need most in
2016 is to refresh your relationship with fundamental principles.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Many of the atoms that compose your flesh
and blood were not part of your body 12 months ago. That's because
every year, 98 percent of you is replaced. Old cells are constantly dying,
giving way to new cells that are made from the air, food, and water you
ingest. This is true about everyone, of course. You're not the only one
whose physical form is regularly recycled. But here's what will be unique
about you in 2016: Your soul will match your body's rapid
transformations. In fact, the turnover is already underway. By your next
birthday, you may be so new you'll barely recognize yourself. I urge you
to take full charge of this opportunity! Who do you want to become?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You know what physical hygiene is. But are
you familiar with imaginal hygiene? Educator Morgan Brent defines it like
this: "Imaginal hygiene is the inner art of self-managing the imagination,
to defend it from forces that compromise, pollute, colonize, shrink, and
sterilize it, and to cultivate those that illuminate, expand, and nourish it."
It's always important for everyone to attend to this work, but it's
especially crucial for you to focus on it in 2016. You will be exceptionally
creative, and therefore likely to generate long-lasting effects and
influences out of the raw materials that occupy your imagination.
