Horoscopes (April 29 - May 5) 

ARIES (March 21-April 20): There's so much new energy around, within all the stuff that is calling you to change the way you do things, the potential for success is huge. As you come to terms with the fact that you are about to get your wish, the fear of failure is nipping at your heels. Those in charge have mixed feelings about you. Those close to you are there for the right reasons, or they're about to turn into your worst nightmare. There is no way to say how this will unfold in the end. To get anything to fly it is essential that you remain in integrity and make sure your associates are right there with you.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20): Being in over your head could be a huge part of the deal right now. And if you're not there, you're in a place where you are milking a situation for all that it's worth. Either way, something needs to be adjusted because nothing will come to fruition if it is messed up from the get-go. The money piece is bigger than life, and that is part of the problem. You're hip enough to know that abundance comes from within, but the bigger part of you is still bowing to the money god. You are totally mixed up about your true motives. Getting clear on that score is where it's at right now.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The way things look, it feels like you will be vindicated at the end of the day. All the votes aren't in; but you have finally found your voice and are being heard for the first time in a long time. What happens next is not clear. You've just emerged from a period of intensity that could have killed an elephant. What never got to you has left you here, like the last man standing, with a clean slate and a round of possibilities that could put an end to whatever the problem is. There are no guarantees. Cross your fingers. How this unfolds will carve your way to a brighter future.

CANCER (June 21-July 20): Amen. And thank god you are free at last. New directions? Yours have not arrived yet, but the latest clue to whatever that's about is waiting under the light of the next full moon. Keep your eyes open and your attention focused in the moment. This is no time to be dwelling on the past, or obsessing about the future. Your sense of safety and security is in your hands, and it is in this moment that you are erecting whatever the future holds. Getting on the ball plays a part in this. Yes, work is where it's at, but joy is the operative word. Make sure you apply it to your efforts.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): Don't get down on yourself for not having a perfect life. No one could have told you this is how it would go. Believe it or not, this is your own version of perfection. What hasn't worked out didn't materialize because you needed something unique and different. Finding another way to see things makes it easier to live with the way they go down. Keeping yourself in a place that is willing to be OK with all of it is crucial — for all of us right now. Whoever or whatever you're waiting for; let it arrive on the wings of faith and hold the thought that you are worthy of it.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): Your obsession with perfection is a blessing and a curse. At the moment you could be peeking out on the thought that you know what it involves, or learning to live with the idea that life is perfect, just the way it is. For many of you recent promotions and opportunities to showcase your abilities have put you in the position of having to put yourself out there and reckon with your perfection — or lack of it — in a public way. If you are enjoying yourself, stay clear and keep going with the flow. If you're not having fun, it's because your perfect pictures keep getting in the way.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): Off and running is the way it looks from here. Where are you going and how far do you want to take this? Powerful elements that have converged to give you more strength and support than you've had in quite some time, are only manifestations of qualities that have given birth to themselves within you. The difficulties of the last few years are giving way to something else. You're not sure what form it will take, but certainty is in short supply these days. Thank god the monkey is off your back. It almost doesn't matter what happens now because you are out of the woods.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): You have straightened out your differences with others. After a month or two of passive aggressive interactions, you finally figured out that you have been looking at everything from the wrong angle. The need to remain open to the ups and downs in your relationships will continue for a while. Your friends and loved ones are dealing with issues that make it hard for them to be straight with themselves, let alone you. It's a good thing you're an expert at minding your own business, because the social scene will be devoid of whatever you need until the seasons change.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): The way you've been feeling lately, you're starting to wonder whether this is worth it. After at least five years of knocking yourself out, you have just about had your fill. All of this could have been avoided if you had known enough about this situation to see how crazy it would get. Now that you are here and have a clearer line on where people are coming from you, see everything for what it's worth. The fact that you're still standing suggests that you belong here — but before you get too comfortable, check to see if it still works for you to be this invested in someone else.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): The story keeps getting more complicated. You could easily be overwhelmed. I don't know exactly how to talk to you guys; it's either looking better than ever or worse than ever, so what can I say in 50 words or less? The consequences of your actions are coming home to roost. If you're feeling totally on top of things, it's because you deserve it. If what's in your sights doesn't look the way you want it to, you'll have to backtrack to the place where the first batch of lies started being told. If you get that far, you are bound to see where all of this is coming from.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): The whirl wind is full of change, and it's all about staying on your toes and being functional for the next month or so. The pace of life will make it hard to address the crux of the issue, but that's the way it goes sometimes. Noticing the extent to which you are supported by others, or not, is a huge item, and so is the concept of moving. Between one thing and another, the space that includes you got lost a long time ago. Never fear, before the next month comes to an end you will have returned to your core and be free to re-center yourself in things that feed your soul.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): Don't worry so much about what other people think about your behavior. Your mind is so all over the place,; you read way too much into everything. This could be because the rest of your life is like a Fellini movie these days. The next time you turn around god knows what it will be! As people and your surroundings come unglued, the best you can do is flow with it and do what you can to find the perfection in situations that defy logic. Get used to this. It's not as crazy as it looks and all of us are here now to learn how to access the truth with the single eye of the heart.
