Horoscopes (April 8 - 14) 

ARIES (March 21-April 20): If you only knew. It's too bad you can't see around the corner, because it's all good, as long as you know that every blessed thing is subject to change. This includes your mind. Your mind is as subject to change as anything else. At the moment, this seems to be the central issue. The intensity of your focus is beaming in on a condition or situation that has multiple solutions. While I admire your presence of mind, don't let the power of your intentions get stuck in a pinhole and obscure the fact that there's more than one way to skin a cat. Stay open to anything!

TAURUS (April 21-May 20): You wish you could figure out how this is going to play out, but you are at the mercy of time and the actions of other people. I hate to say it, but this is a crapshoot. Those of you who have been able to remain grounded in the midst of people and things that would call anyone to walk off the set are going to come out of this in one piece — or at least be able to live with yourself. Those of you who keep trying to make the most out of whatever you're trying to milk from this will be ensnared by your greed, finding yourselves facing more than one demon before the week is out.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You have a tough time seeing things for what they are. It would be great if, instead of closing your eyes to whatever you can't face, you begin to ask yourself how in God's name you wound up in this situation. All of your problems would disappear if you could see how your actions keep bringing you up against the same old thing. This time it's a little different than usual. I have a feeling you're stuck between a rock and a hard place. If that is the case, it's got you in a vise to give you a chance to reckon with the truth. Pray for the insight to make peace with it.

CANCER (June 21-July 20): As of this moment, you are amazed at how this never ending supply of whatever it is that you've got just keeps on coming. It could be love, patience, kindness, money, understanding, whatever — you would love to know what it will get you at the end of the day. That question has always been hard to answer. Taking stock of your life is a big item for you these days. In the middle of changes that you are uncertain about, you have to keep in mind that life works better when we keep it simple and stay connected to things that nourish the spirit.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): So many things have piled up to make you wonder if this is for real, or if you are dreaming. For better or worse the story is unfolding in a way that makes it clear that you are playing a waiting game. If things come through, you could be on a totally different bandwidth in three months' time. If you've been egotistical, or too grandiose, or have been overly optimistic, or have put too much faith in things that have no substance, you'll have a tough time correcting your mistakes and dealing with the aftermath of the things that happen to us when we fall prey to illusion.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): You have come to terms with things, or so it seems. Every time you get to the bottom of this, it comes up in a realistic light. Even so, within five seconds you rationalize the hell out of things, seeing what you want to see and trying to make it all OK. For the last few weeks you've been going nuts wondering why, after all these years, you keep doing the same old thing. Who knows? The story is different for all of us. There is no perfect way to go through life. None of this needs to make sense to anyone but you. Keep trying to make it an authentic reflection of yourself.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): You never thought you'd wind up in this position. For better or worse you keep trying to figure out how it happened. Many of you are sitting prettier than ever. Others are wondering what happened to the magic. The need to have it all be a beautiful day obscures the fact that 50 percent of whatever's going on is meant to be hard. You will do better under pressure if you find ways to see the beauty in the stuff that goes on when we're pissed off, and unhappy with the scenery. This too is perfect, my friend. Learning how to love it will turn out to be your greatest gift.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): You are on a roll. Whatever's up your sleeve will see you making or breaking things, within two years or less. I don't know how all of this feels to you, but the fear of success and the fear of failure are always holding hands. So much is at stake, and you are playing ball with the big boys. To be able to navigate from your current position will be easier if you have an ally or two to set you straight and keep you from getting high on too much pie in the sky. This is an amazing time. You're in an amazing position. At the moment it comes down to staying on your feet.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): Whoa! You aren't too sure about what's going on but you are doing the best you can to keep things from falling apart. It's hard to say how much longer you're going to have to hold space for all this stress but, give it at least 6 months to unravel. The need to remain prudent in all of your interactions with others can't be over emphasized. You can do more with less, and you can get further with the people by waiting for them to ask for your input. Loose lips sink ships. Be as mindful as you can. Even with the best intentions you could easily screw things up.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): You keep wondering how you're going to make it without someone, or something, at a time when you stand a good chance of doing better on your own. Don't be too hung up on whatever's passing away. You are watching it all as if your life depends upon this. Guess again. None of us came here to go back and forth playing games. You have an enormous amount of talent that needs to find a new mode of expression, or at least could be put to better use. As you wean yourself from the need to remain stuck here, opportunities to expand will surface and begin to flower.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): The writing on the wall has gotten lost in translation. That's OK; there are plenty of signs coming in from other sources. Your intuition is loaded with details that you can't afford to miss. If you're worried about someone, and the feeling recurs at least three times, pay attention to it. When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. And if anyone is going nuts trying to keep you in your place, don't be stupid about it. You will not be able to change anything about your current situation until you realize that sometimes doing what's right involves breaking the rules.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): How far you need to go to please people is open to question. You need to keep tabs on whatever you're trying to prove. Too often you go overboard. After a lot of networking and running around I see you settling into things that will help you stabilize your goals and projects for at least six months. Between now and then keep your focus on the tasks at hand and on the things that need to be done to secure your position. You can delegate some of this. Just make sure you know who to trust. You need to watch the tendency to be too giving people more credit than they deserve.
