Today’s Oracle takes us to the Libra monthly for Oct. 1, 1999
Each year around this time, I get that irresistible calling to visit a place called Middle Earth, home of the Hobbits Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, both of whom were born on the Libra Equinox. These were the cozy, mild-mannered fellows who undertook great odysseys, came face-to-face with evil and were instrumental in defeating it with their cleverness, guts, perseverance and pure luck. Libra is often mistaken for a nondescript astrological concept, natives of which are allegedly characterized by indecision and good taste in wallpaper. However, anyone holding that view would have some explaining to do when it comes to Mahatma Gandhi, Groucho Marx, Truman Capote, Bruce Springsteen, John Lennon, F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Falukner, Oscar Wilde, and, while on the subject of writers, two of the finest daily horoscope columnists to grace the tabloids, Patric Walker and his successor, Sally Brompton. One might ask what engine is behind their lives and creations, and in my view, the answer is a dedication to living on one of the most daring edges of human reality: a commitment to beauty, be it the aesthetics of justice, passion for harmony, or the righteousness of original creation. Yet the lives of Frodo and Bilbo speak more to the themes of your coming year than any of the real-life Librans I’ve mentioned. Prepare for a journey through the deep unknown, a pilgrimage into the heart of the unspoken mysteries, and some extremely rare life experiences just as the millennium turns that will provide you with an opportunity to fulfill one of your deepest callings of recent years: a personal story compelling enough to tell.
