One of my favorite parts of the advertising campaign for the movie “American Beauty” in 1999 was the poster that said “Look closer.”
When I think about the Mercury-Pluto opposition happening this week, along with Neptune retrograding (off my ascendant, I might add), I think about the need to “look closer.” You might not always know what you’re looking at, but the intention to pay attention is important.
For instance, last night I was watching the penultimate episode of “Game of Thrones” for the season. I haven’t read the books and probably won’t. Anyway, by the statements of shock on twitter, the episode has thrown everyone who’s not read the books for a loop. But you would know something was off if you were paying attention. My friend and I thought something was about to go down though. There were too many little dramatic overreaches. As I think about the horoscopes for this week, I think it’s much like that, minus the horror and melodrama.
Looking closer is both paying attention and knowing that everything is not necessarily as it seems. This isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes you can catch such sublime moments of beauty and charm when you look beyond the surface.
