My friend Chrys
in all her awesomeness
sometimes writes about this Free Will Astrology
and so after reading about it all this time but never actually going to the site
i finally did today
and was curious to what the archived horoscopes would have told me
((I like to compare my past experiences to horoscopes to find a site that is actually in tune to me))
my horoscope for the last week in September
lead me to this list written by Jack Kerouac
of his 30 essentials
which are like completely and totally on par with me, my lifestyle and the way i live. ^_^

Here they are:
  1. Scribbled secret notebooks, and wild typewritten pages, for yr own joy
  2. Submissive to everything, open, listening
  3. Try never get drunk outside yr own house
  4. Be in love with yr life
  5. Something that you feel will find its own form
  6. Be crazy dumbsaint of the mind
  7. Blow as deep as you want to blow
  8. Write what you want bottomless from bottom of the mind
  9. The unspeakable visions of the individual
  10. No time for poetry but exactly what is
  11. Visionary tics shivering in the chest
  12. In tranced fixation dreaming upon object before you
  13. Remove literary, grammatical and syntactical inhibition
  14. Like Proust be an old teahead of time
  15. Telling the true story of the world in interior monolog
  16. The jewel center of interest is the eye within the eye
  17. Write in recollection and amazement for yourself
  18. Work from pithy middle eye out, swimming in language sea
  19. Accept loss forever
  20. Believe in the holy contour of life
  21. Struggle to sketch the flow that already exists intact in mind
  22. Don't think of words when you stop but to see picture better
  23. Keep track of every day the date emblazoned in yr morning
  24. No fear or shame in the dignity of yr experience, language & knowledge
  25. Write for the world to read and see yr exact pictures of it
  26. Bookmovie is the movie in words, the visual American form
  27. In praise of Character in the Bleak inhuman Loneliness
  28. Composing wild, undisciplined, pure, coming in from under, crazier the better
  29. You're a Genius all the time
  30. Writer-Director of Earthly movies Sponsored & Angeled in Heaven
The only one that doesn't really jive is the Never get drunk outside your own home thing
tho artistically speaking it could be interpreted in many ways..

i particularly love 'Accept Loss Forever' and 'write what you want bottomless...'

The typos in the list, of course, are all his.
I wish i could be his contemporary
i wish i spent dark, homeless on the road nights with him and Ginsberg and Burroughs and Watts and Carr--
laughing and smoking and being destroyed by madness, starving hysterical--
i have always lived to be one of the mad ones-- as he wrote..

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars, and in the middle, you see the blue center-light pop, and everybody goes ahh..."

This list will be my new bastion
my reference when i get the blues
my justification for living at the height of my poetry and prose
for always burning
and raging against the dying of the light.
