GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In Buddhist legend, the udumbara is a rare flower that blossoms unexpectedly every few millennia. It portends the imminent arrival of a miraculous breakthrough, as it did when it appeared near a lake at the foot of the Himalayas before the birth of Buddha. Many people in Fremont, California believe they recently saw the udumbara blooming on an oleander tree, its threadlike stalks erupting with tiny white blooms. Was it real? Alas, no scientists were on hand to confer the blessing of authentication. But that doesn’t matter for my purpose, which
is to let you know that you’ll soon have a close brush with the equivalent of an udumabara. Be alert. Don’t be so lost in your fantasies that you’re blind to the fantastic omen that’s right in front of you. You’ve got to actually *see* it in order to be ready for the wondrous event it foreshadows.
