"Horoscopes" by Ash Miller

\

ARIES: there are forces out there you cannot control. Most of them don't like you very much.

g

LIBRA: you are an ancient,

long-forgotten god and your humanity

is the heaviest burden you will

ever bear.

b

TAURUS: bravery is choosing not to run from the window when lightning strikes. Stand in the rain. Become everything a

hurricane is made of.

h

SCORPIO: stop building sandcastles so close to the sea.

c

GEMINI: make something tragic and call it art. If you let something beautiful destroy you, you can call it a masterpiece.

i

SAGITTARIUS: fake flowers will die if you forget to pretend to water them.

If you don't grow roots you

might disappear.

d

CANCER: you give too much of yourself away and become an empty room.

j

CAPRICORN: make promises you can't keep and call them love. The loneliest place on Earth is somewhere deep in your veins.

e

LEO: a garden is just a forest

without trees. Infinities will

sink into your skin deeper than

any blade ever has.

k

AQUARIUS: stars live in constant fear of falling. Sometimes when you

fall, you fly.

f

VIRGO: the last thing you will ever be is a museum.


 

l

PISCES: you have nothing to give,

offer it anyway. Remember that

fourteen billion years ago

nothing existed.
