Below, an adaptation of an excerpt from The Lunar Nodules, written by Martin Shulman. This book focuses on the origin of the zodiac and how the Universe designed a specific mission for each sign. It’s a very positive read that will brighten your day.
Twelve children received, in turn, their mission and their gift:
I give you the first seeds so that you have the honor of planting them. Therefore, every seed you plant will be transformed into a million new seeds. You won’t have time to watch them grow because you will be busy with more crops.
You will have the honor of being the first to convey your message to people, but it is not your place to nurture it or question it. Your life is an action and I trust you to speak to humanity about the creations of the Universe. For your good work, I give you the virtue of self-esteem.
I give you the power to transform the seed into substance. Your work requires a lot of patience because you have to finish everything that has been started, otherwise the seeds will be lost.
You shouldn’t question or change your mind in the workplace, nor rely on others for what I’m asking you to do. Therefore, I give you the gift of Strength. Use it wisely.
I answer unanswered questions so that everyone can understand what they see around me.
You will never know why people speak or listen, but in your search for answers, you will find my gift, my knowledge.
I entrust you with the task of teaching people about emotions. My idea for you is to make people around you laugh so that everything they see and think develops inside.
Therefore, I give you the gift of family. May your fullness multiply.
Your job is to show people my creation in all its glory. Make sure pride doesn’t blind you and remember one thing: creation was made by my hands, not yours. If you forget this, you will become the object of human contempt.
This task will give you pleasure but take it seriously. To fulfill your mission, receive from me the gift of honor.
I ask for an analysis of all that humanity has done with my creation. You must examine their ways and remind them of their mistakes so that my creation is perfect.
To do this, I offer you the gift of purity of thought.
Your mission is service, make sure humans are aware of their mutual duties.
They must learn cooperation and the ability to think about their actions. I will place it wherever there is disagreement and, due to all the effort you will have to make, I will give you the gift of love.
I entrust you with a very difficult task. You will have the ability to know the minds of others, but I will not let you talk about what you have learned.
Often you will be disappointed by what you will see and by your pain, you will turn away from me and you will forget that it is not me, but the perversion of my idea which is the cause of your pain.
You will see so much humanity that you will come to know them as animals and you will have so much trouble controlling the animal instinct that you lose your way.
But when you finally come back to me, Scorpio, I will have the ultimate gift of the goal for you.
I ask you to smile at people, because, despite your misunderstanding about my idea, they will become bitter.
Through laughter, you have to give people hope and, in hope, your eyes will turn to me.
To you Sagittarius, I give you the gift of infinite abundance so that it can extend far enough to reach every corner of darkness and give them light.
I give the mission to learn at work.
Your task is not easy, because you will feel the weight of humanity on your shoulders; but you are blessed with the responsibility of your brothers and sisters, which I have placed in your hands.
I provide the concept of the future so that people can see other possibilities. You will have the pain of loneliness because I do not allow you to personalize my love.
But by opening their eyes to new possibilities, I offer them the gift of freedom.
May you, in your freedom, continue to serve humanity wherever it is needed.
I entrust you with the most difficult task.
I ask you to collect all the pains in the world and return them to me. Your tears are my tears.
The sadness you are about to absorb is the effect of people’s misunderstanding on my idea, but you have to give them compassion to try again.
As you will perform the most difficult task, I give you the greatest gift. You will be the only one of my twelve children to understand me. The gift of understanding is for you, Pisces, because when you try to spread it to humanity, they don’t listen to it.
And the children are gone, each determined to do their best to receive their gift. But no one fully understood his mission and when they returned perplexed, the Universe said:
“Each of you believes that other gifts are better. I will allow you to exchange them. “And for a moment, the children were happy to consider all the possibilities of their new missions. But the Universe continued: “You will often come back to me asking to be relieved of your missions and, at any time, I will grant you your wishes. You will go through countless incarnations before finishing the original mission I have prescribed for you. And I’ll give you countless things to complete, but you can only be with me when it’s all over. “
