GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In the language of archetypal psychology, the term *hierosgamos* means “sacred marriage.” It may refer to a literal coming together of two people whose bond is a gift to God. Their love for each other serves as an inspiration to their community and galvanizes them both to express their wildest beauty. Because their union is dedicated to a higher cause beyond their personal happiness, they strive with ingenious devotion to transmute the dark, unripe aspects of their own nature. The term *hierosgamos* also has a bigger meaning, beyond the enlightened relationship of two intelligent people. It may refer to any merger of opposites that’s precipitated through divine grace and that unleashes surprising healing in all directions. In the coming weeks, Gemini, you are a prime candidate to experience at least a metaphorical version of *hierosgamos.*



LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “The ancient Greeks knew that learning comes from playing,” writes Roger von Oech in his book *A Whack on the Side of the Head: How You Can Be More Creative.* Their word for education, *paideia,* he says, was close to their word for play, *paidia.* Your next assignment, Libra, is right in line with this theme. First, identify the teachings that will be most important for you to master in 2007. Second, figure out how to include play as a major component of your learning process.
