CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): "The bewilderments of the eyes are of two kinds, and arise from two causes," wrote Plato in *The Republic,* "either from coming out of the light or from going into the light, which is true of the mind's eye quite as much as of the bodily eye." He goes on to say that when a person leaves the light and enters into the shadows, his vision is perplexed, being unaccustomed to the dark. And when he moves from the murk into the brightness, it takes a while for his sight to adjust to the dazzle. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, Capricorn, you had to deal with the first kind of temporary blindness about three weeks ago, and will begin experiencing the second kind any day now.

first off, i wanted to point out something i noticed today that pleased me greatly and let me know i'm on the right path: the top 5 topics here at iGoddess are:

* brezsny on the blog (55)
* pronoia (54)
* finding the Funk (49)
* radical intimacy (36)
* daily deelite (35)

this is absolutely awesome. and daily deelite is soon going to overtake and far surpass anything else here, since it's a (for the most part) daily thing.

mr. brezsny, your timing once again is perfect. indeed, there was a period about three weeks ago where i was blinded, blinking and trying to focus in the sudden darkness. i was hit with a wave of insecurity, fear of failure, and intense worry.

it was a visit from three of the thirteen Beasts of Consciousness, the other ten being sorrow, defeat, fear of ruin, futility, doubt, self-cruelty, disappointment, debauchery, indolence, and oppression. you'd think fear would just be all bundled into one, but some fear is healthy. it just has to be the right kind of fear. any hint of fooling yourself into believing that one of your unhealthy fears is a healthy form of fear, and now you're just lying to yourself. i suppose you could say it's a form of self-oppression, couldn't you?

one of these Beasts is enough to immobilize a person, even momentarily. these immobilized me for over a week.

i got over it, tho.

and any day, i'm going to be positively dazzled by my emergence into Blinding Light of Dazzling Wowness. and i've been able to feel it coming, ever since yesterday. there was just a feeling of specialness, as if i'd shifted into a new golden age and was attuned to the energies even though the physical manifestation hadn't come yet.

it was The Beginning. and i felt it.

so i know it's barreling straight for me as i type this. i know it the way i know gravity works. i am the lodestone for Fortune, Abundance, and Ecstatic Wowliciousness. i swear to the Jiggy Funk, i felt it.

and now all i have to do is take action --BIG action-- and prepare for its inevitable arrival. and so i do just that...with a smile on my face, joy in my heart, and a swivel in my saunter.

yeah, baby!
