The Day Of The Labyrinth

MARCH TWENTIETH

Strengths: Logical. Sensitive. Versatile. 
Weaknesses: Unrealistic. Unsure. 

Tarot Card: The Judgement 

Personality

March 20 is a highly symbolic day, when considered as the last day of winter and the end of the astrological year. People born on this day possess certain unusual gifts as well as special problems. For example, they are in many ways the most highly evolved creatures of the year, when the zodiac is considered as a map of the evolution of the human being. On the other hand, they may find it difficult to start certain important endeavors and to leave the past behind. It can take them a very long time to make crucial decisions, particularly those involving big changes in their lives.

The expansive qualities and sometimes unfounded optimism of March 20 people can land them in hot water. While their dreaminess lends them magnetic charm, it also makes them prone to unreality in their outlook. However, if those born on this day manage to find their true calling and life partner they will be protected from much that can go wrong.

March 20 talents are generally both numerous and diverse. Therefore those born on this day may flounder for a while, fishing around for the right path to take. They can also be overly influenced by those in higher positions and somewhat inclined toward hero worship, often at the expense of their own ego. Their romanticism, a product of a vivid imagination, can perhaps lead them astray in this respect. By overvaluing the one they worship they tend to unconsciously undervalue themselves. This can lead to a lack of self-confidence of which they themselves may be unaware.

March 20 people must also beware of falling into depressions, which no amount of admiration (either for others or from others) will help. On the other hand, solid friends and loved ones who can keep them on track are of great importance. Ultimately, working toward greater self-assertiveness is the key to March 20 people avoiding these states.

Those born on this day are often drawn to psychic phenomena. They may have great talents in this area, but should be extremely careful not to let themselves go overboard. Such excesses could lead to an abandonment of reality which would be devastating not only to themselves but also to loved ones. If they can put these talents to use in moderation, they will achieve success in life.

Sensitivity to music and art are pronounced in March 20 people who may be particularly drawn to vocal expression. Singing, for example, can make an excellent hobby or even profession for those with musical talent. Attention to the feelings of others makes those born on this day fine interpreters of their fellow human beings’ work but also good counselors to whom people come to seek advice. In this they should remain objective if possible, for their opinion carries weight and tends to impact heavily on clients, co-workers or friends.

We create nothing, express nothing; we only discover or uncover what is already there 

Dylan Klebold Birthday Profile: Part 2

NUMBERS AND PLANETS

Those born on the 11th of the month are ruled by the number 2 (1+1=2), and by the Moon. Since those ruled by the number 2 often make good co-workers and partners, rather than leaders, this complements the orderly and conventional side of September 11 mentioned earlier. Imaginative and witty qualities are further enhanced in September 11 people by the influence of the Moon and of Mercury (which rules Virgo), and the former may also convey strongly reflective and passive tendencies. The number 11 lends a feeling for the physical plane (reinforcing the mental concentration and earthiness of Virgo).

“i think a lot. Think… Think… that’s all my life is, just shitloads of thinking… all the time… my mind never stops…” – Dylan Klebold

TAROT

The 11th card of the Major Arcana is Justice, a serene seated woman holding the scales in one hand and a sword in the other. She reminds us of the order of the universe and that balance and harmony will be maintained in our lives as long as we continue on our path. The positive aspects of this card are integrity, fairness, honesty and discipline; the negative aspects are low initiative, impersonality, fear of innovation and grievances.

I hate this non-thinking stasis. Im stuck in humanity. maybe going “NBK” (gawd) w. eric is the way to break free. i hate this.” – Dylan Klebold

HEALTH

September 11 people are particularly prone to difficulties with eating and digestion. Some born on this day devote a great deal of time to figuring out what is the best diet to avoid stomach and intestinal difficulties. Finicky eaters, they can nonetheless gorge themselves on foods they like. In this regard they must take particular care with sugar and alcohol. Psychologically, September 11 people have a tremendous need to nurture, and expressions of love of all kinds, often toward pets and other friendly animals, will be of great importance to their mental well-being. Exercise may not come naturally to September 11 people, but they must remind themselves of its importance for their health. Gravitating toward a more sedentary lifestyle may prove debilitating.

“Later that month, he woke up in the middle of the night with terrible stomach pains. We were concerned enough to take him to the emergency room, where they ruled out appendicitis and everything else. Puzzled the doctors released him, and he appeared to recover completely. I would later learn that unexplained somatic symptoms, particularly abdominal pain, may be a marker for depression.” – Sue Klebold, A Mother’s Reckoning

“Dylan, sensitive like his mother, worried the cougars would eat his cats, Lucy and Rocky.” – Lynn Bartels and Carla Crowder, Fatal Friendship, Rocky Mountain News 

ADVICE

Don’t take yourself and your beliefs so seriously. Be more forgiving. Try to understand what makes others act the way they do. Being secretive may not be necessary. Develop your natural talents. Dare to fail.

“One of the traits that marked Dylan throughout his life was an exaggerated reluctance to risk embarrassment, something that intensified as he entered adolescence… Dylan did not laugh easily at his own foibles. He could be unforgiving of himself when he failed at anything, and he hated to look foolish.” – Sue Klebold, A Mother’s Reckoning

MEDITATION

Laugh ‘til it hurts – cry ‘til you laugh

The Day Of Return

MARCH EIGHTEENTH

Strengths: Intuitive. Powerful. Diplomatic.  
Weaknesses: Glib. Self-Compromising. Obsessive.

Tarot Card: The Moon 

Personality

The theme of return figures prominently in the lives of those born on March 18, taking many forms but basically having to do with bringing a process full circle or completing a task after reaching a higher level of personal development. The most successful of March 18 people are those able to realize such a cyclical evolution. Less highly evolved individuals born on this day tend to repeat themselves endlessly and get stuck in patterns that do not allow them to advance and to grow. Powerful March 18 people draw others to them, display marked leadership ability and intuition, and aggressively pursue their dreams and ideals. Although they often seem to depart from their principal activity and suffer an unusual number of setbacks, they rarely if ever give up, and eventually return to implement their plans with renewed vigor. Completing, resuming, renewing—such are the keywords for these persistent individuals, who usually have a well-defined vision of their personal destiny.

March 18 people have their own sense of time, where they are more in tune with kairos (the proper time to do something) than chronos (clock time). They can demonstrate great patience when waiting for an opportunity to arise. Less highly evolved people born on this day run the risk of sinking into a torpor in which they are ultimately incapable of moving forward and patience becomes an excuse for inaction. Thus a proper balance between action and non-action is essential for those born on this day.

March 18 people generally focus on the big picture but sometimes get sloppy about details, which may in fact surface later to plague them. In addition, those born on this day must beware of dealing too much in generalities. When specific demands are made on them either by society, business or family, they must learn to act without delay. For some March 18 people, problems can arise with their children who, experiencing youthful impatience, despair of a March 18 parent ever taking action at all, and thereby become frustrated, emotionally upset or rebellious.

March 18 people can function well as brokers, emissaries or agents, where they become the meeting point of two worlds. As mediators, diplomats and arbitrators they are able not only to see the validity of differing points of view, but also to suggest ways in which two warring sides can be brought closer together. They must beware, however, of compromising or losing touch with their own beliefs in the process. Cultivating emotional honesty is an important challenge for these deft individuals. Also they must not let their compulsion to complete their endeavors ride roughshod over the feelings of others.

Completion often signals a new beginning 

The Day Of Dogged Persistence

MARCH NINTEENTH

Strengths: Persuasive. Tireless. Thorough.
Weaknesses: Unaware. Stubborn. Closed. 

Tarot Card: The Sun 

Personality

Those born on March 19 have the dogged persistence needed to achieve their ends and know how to use their charm and allure to help them. These highly directed people are both dreamers and doers. They are able to translate their imaginative ideas into reality. Though assertive, March 19 people may not be the most self-aware individuals, and indeed a strong unreality factor may be at work here.

March 19 people are outwardly directed and intent on winning others over to their viewpoints. But what those born on this day may be attempting at times is to change external reality to conform to their inner picture of it. This may sound like a dubious proposition, but through their tenacity, those born on March 19 are surprisingly successful.

March 19 people possess very pure and childlike qualities. But though they are expansive types who sometimes give the impression that they are in another world, they are in fact forceful and businesslike. Thus they are a bit paradoxical in nature, and can appear to others as being alternately dreamy and fiery.

Some March 19 people are explorers who break new ground and go where no one has dared to go before, but more often they are pragmatic individuals who proceed methodically. Whatever the nature of their undertakings, March 19 people usually move in a straight-line fashion, convinced that their principles are just—as a matter of fact they may even see themselves as reformers, putting everything right after years of neglect by others. Due to a lack of objectivity, however, they can well be headed off track or in the wrong direction.

It is indeed important that March 19 people chart their course with care, because once they are convinced they are on target they will want to follow through to the end. They are also extremely diligent and capable of operating on a personal level with little need for fanfare, reward or acclaim. They will doggedly pursue their goals, even though it may mean endless repetition of tasks. They never seem to tire of their own activities, perhaps at times even going at things too slowly. This thoroughness is one of their most basic attributes and usually guarantees a successful outcome to their ventures.

As hardnosed and hardworking as March 19 people can be, they must learn to be more realistic about who they are. Acquiring self-knowledge and an awareness of limitations is extremely important. Part of their development will inevitably include learning not to overreach. They must make an effort to keep their egoism and egotistical impulses under control. By adopting a modest attitude, they may prove to be still more successful in their efforts.
