Horoscope

This month’s horoscope by Phoebe with quotes by Osho: “What is true for me is not true for all, and what is true for me today is not going to be necessarily true for me tomorrow.”

Taurus and Gemini
Taurus and Gemini

Phoebe would like to point out that we all have all the twelve zodiac signs in our horoscope – some with planets in them and some are empty – meaning some of the themes addressed are in the foreground and some in the background of our lives. “I recommend readers to read all twelve quotes, not just their star sign, for a wider perspective on the themes of the month,” she says.


Mood of the Month

“Life is a moving river. It is entering into new areas, new territories, new potentialities, and it has to be alert about it. Life cannot be lived according to the past… One has to live according to the present, aware of the future. And one has to remember, what is true for me is not true for all, and what is true for me today is not going to be necessarily true for me tomorrow. Our values have to be according to life – not vice versa. The moment you try to make life be according to your values you become life-destructive.”

Osho, Zarathustra the Laughing Prophet, Ch 17

“Every man is in search of a home, because, as he is, he is only a refugee – not at ease with himself or with the world around him, not relaxed… We are wandering always outside, going somewhere. And every going is going away from your self. You may be going in search of a home, but in fact you are going away from home. Your home is within you. And that home can be found only when you stop searching, when you stop wandering, when you are no longer interested in the distant but utterly relaxed in your very source of being.”

Osho, Zarathustra the Laughing Prophet, Ch 13

“Life is a flux, everything is constantly changing, and that which does not change is dead. Change is the very spirit of life; permanency is part of death… You are acquainted with that which is permanent – you know how to deal with it. You have learned everything about it, you feel at ease with it… But if life is going to be a constant flux, a moment-to-moment change, that means you are always going to encounter the unknown. That creates a deep fear because you will not be ready to face it beforehand. You will have to respond spontaneously. This is the problem.”

Osho, Zarathustra the Laughing Prophet, Ch 18

From this very moment start exploring, and remember not to be repetitive. Always look for something new, something fresh, because there is really no goal except the journey. So make the most of it. Make it as beautiful as possible, as enchanting, as creative as you have the capacity to make it. And you have infinite capacity – it is just dormant.”

“Will to power has nothing to do with the other. It is your own exercise of rising to the heights. It is your own discipline to reach to the highest peak of your being. It is not destructive of anybody. On the contrary, it can be an inspiration for others… Will to power means becoming in oneself more and more powerful, more and more radiant, more and more strong, more and more integrated, more and more a lion – an individual. Will to power is simply will to be oneself – will to freedom, will to create… to proclaim to the world, ‘I have always been here and I will be always here!’”

“What we call the soul is not separate from the body… The body is your outer soul and the soul is your inner body, but it is one phenomenon; it is one energy. The space outside your house and the space inside your house are not two spaces. The outside space and the inside space are a… single phenomenon. […] You are one whole; you are one organic unity, hence there is no need for any inner fight. And the moment you are no longer in any inner fight your whole energy is available to rise higher.”

“If you don’t have a goal, if you don’t want to reach anywhere, if the very exploring is a joy unto itself, if discovering new spaces outside and inside is a bliss and a benediction to you, then abysses and summits don’t make any difference. They become one – they are one! And man has that much courage, one just has to awaken it, it is fast asleep. Once your courage is awake, once your courage roars like a lion, you feel for the first time the thrill of life, the joy of life, the dance of life.”

“If, at the time of death, death inquires of you, would you like to live your life – the same life that you have lived – one time more, what do you think your answer is going to be?… A man who has lived life not as a misery, but as an exploration into new experiences – always moving, always going upward, always searching for something better, always creating himself, always destroying all that is rubbish in him and bringing out the best – perhaps he may say, “Well then, once more – no harm!”

“One has to transcend oneself. One has to leave oneself behind; one has to go ahead of oneself. All that you are has to be left behind – your thoughts, your dreams, your imaginations, your prejudices, your philosophies – everything that makes up your personality. You have to leave it the way the snake leaves its old skin. It slips out and never even looks back… To understand that you are an arrow in full speed going nowhere, you don’t have any target, is… a challenge which can be accepted only by the very courageous.”

“Why do you go on remaining part of a crowd? Why don’t you assert your individuality? Why do you go on playing pseudo roles, imposed by others, and not rebel against them? […] The crowd is cozy, is a certain kind of security. You are not alone… Alone, you will have to look inside yourself. Unoccupied with anything on the outside, in your aloneness, the longing for the heights, the desire to fly like an eagle across the sun is bound to arise, because it is there in every human being. Life wants to overcome itself… But in overcoming, there is risk. You can be new only if the old dies… The man who wants a transformation to happen in his life has to take the risk.”

Osho, Zarathustra the Laughing Prophet, Ch 6

Knowledge is a slave – tamed. Knowledge is very poor. A computer cannot have wisdom. It is the privilege only of human beings, human consciousness… But then you have to be ready for the wild, for the untamed, for the spontaneous… Wisdom is freedom. You never know what you are going to know the next moment; you cannot rehearse it. It comes suddenly. But it is such a joy, such a blessing, that those who have not known the untamed wisdom have not known anything at all.”

“Man needs a divine discontent, a longing for the distant, a longing for the impossible. Unless you have the longing for the impossible you will not have a great soul… You have so much potential. You can grow so many flowers in your being, you can give birth to stars!… All the colors, all the varieties, all that life makes available has to be tasted, has to be lived and has to be lived intensely. Only a life lived totally in all its colors brings the opportunity to you for giving birth to something higher than you… You are not the goal. You have to become the soil.”

Osho, Zarathustra the Laughing Prophet, Ch 16
