Reading my local alt-weekly The Stranger the other day, I happened to notice my horoscope for the week, courtesy of Free Will Astrology:
Patriarch Bartholomew, the leader of the Orthodox Christian Church, has a flock of 300 million. Unlike most other religious leaders, he crusades for the preservation of the environment. “To commit a crime against the natural world is a sin,” he says. “For humans to cause species to become extinct and to destroy the biological diversity of God’s creation; for humans to contaminate the Earth’s waters, land, air, and life with poisonous substances: These are sins.” The astrological omens suggest that he’ll be a good role model for you in 2007, Virgo. You’ll generate lush personal dividends if you intensify your intention to live in harmony with nature and invoke a spiritual zeal as you defend your planet against its despoilers.
Word to the stars.
