Horoscopes (Feb. 11 - 17) 

ARIES (March 21-April 20): You are caught between so many things. You thought you had it all figured out, and now you're kinda wondering if you even have a clue. New influences, along with a lot of new information, have arrived to give you something else to think about. The need to reconsider, along with the idea that you have to let go of needing to be right, are high on your list. You've got too much at stake to be stubborn about the wrong things. Open up. Being receptive doesn't always involve getting swallowed up by externals. In your case, it comes down to being willing to grow, or not.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20): The circus is getting more, or less, interesting, depending on how you look at things. In some cases, it's kind of like watching a train wreck, and you are starting to wonder why you're glued to this scene. For others, I get the feeling you have just woken up to the fact that you bet on the wrong horse and you wish you could get off this pony in mid-stream. Between that and matters of the heart that have you wishing you weren't so gullible, it comes down to finding a way to return to integrity, one way or another. This may require bold moves on your part. Be prepared.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): No one can tell you how to play this. It's too complicated. And you are the only one who has all the facts. It's too bad you can't be 100 percent up-front about where you're coming from. For better or worse, it would be good if you could find a way to come clean. Part of the reason your current situation is so mixed up has to do with a series of lies and misdemeanors that never got revealed or accounted for along the way. You've got so much to explain. Knowing where to go next is going to require you to backtrack to the point where the lines of communication got crossed.

CANCER (June 21-July 20): Isn't it interesting how the right course of action reveals itself to the one who remains in integrity? In this situation, your current source of anxiety has faded in the face of decisions that have made you stronger. As the next few months unfold, what appears to put you on shaky ground will give way to the sense that new doors are opening and life is expanding past every previously known limit. As the ties that bind you fade away, the next thing will make itself known, as long as you keep your heart free and rely upon the Law of Synchronicity to guide your way.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): Too much static from people who matter most has you feeling a little nervous about what's up next. Up until now, you thought you were in everyone's good graces. The sense that you're not on the A List anymore isn't your imagination. If it's the usual thing, I have a feeling this has something to do with your ego and your inability to keep a lid on it when your insecurities drive you to overcompensate more than usual. The vibes will clear up tremendously if you take the time to reflect on where you're coming from and give everyone involved plenty of room to breathe.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): For the first time in a long time, the art of taking your hands off the wheel is beginning to make sense. Up until this moment you thought that life demanded endless levels of perfection. Now, suddenly, how things look on the surface is less important than how perfect you feel inside. When the grand style, and everything money can buy, loses their appeal, life begins to open up. You are ready to let go of core beliefs that have etched your brain with the notion that suffering and success are intertwined. Forget about it, my friend. Life is born out of doing what we love.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): Knowing how to hang in there when the going gets rough is a big part of the lesson right now. With levels of stress that challenge your desire to keep it all nice, you get it, and lose it, from one day to the next. Others keep giving you the opportunity to see yourself. At times you wish you could retreat to a place where all work and no play came with a little satisfaction at the end of the day. Don't be disheartened. A huge toll is being paid off in the issues that you are wading through now. As you learn how to take the good with the bad, being OK with all of it is the key.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): What you are facing is less about what you owe to people, places, and things than it is about finding your place in this situation. While you were busy siphoning 90 percent of yourself off to other people's needs and interests, something got lost. As you ask yourself why you gave it all away, don't be too quick to judge. The ones who had no way to appreciate what you have done for them can't be faulted for their inability to know what it takes to put yourself out the way you have, day after day. Stay cool. It may be time to forgive those who know not what they do.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): You could be doing more harm than good. Don't be so sure that your efforts to smooth things over are helping this situation out. At times, your perspective on things has very little to do with what's going on and it would behoove you to check in with yourself long enough to see how it's working for you. At this point what you are unable to see is about to spill over and impact your nearest and dearest as well. With that thought in mind, haul back for just two seconds and ask yourself if there might be another approach to a situation that is just about ready to explode.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): The roller coaster has reached the point where you're ready to get off and take yourself elsewhere. Enough is enough. After months of back and forth and up and down, the PTSD is off the charts. Those who have come to depend too heavily on your time and input have been looking for ways to keep you on the hook. You aren't interested. The need to feel like it's up to you to make sure everyone has a life is totally insane. You lost track of your own a while back. It's time to reclaim pieces of yourself and get some sense of continuity back into the schedule.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): You've had it up to here with people who can't be accountable. It seems that you're the only one around here who knows how to behave. It's to your credit that you have finally figured out how to draw the line; how long has it been? Now that you have put a raft of issues into a perspective that allows you to live with it, those who have the most to do with them are bound to show up on your doorstep. Don't be surprised if old flames and or those who have been a thorn in your side return to the scene and give you yet one more chance to see if you're really on top of things.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): You have a huge amount of "stuff" to process at a time when your perceptions are skewed by ill health, or by influences that have co-opted 90 percent of your energy. As all of it comes to the surface, you are either feeling totally victimized or completely aware of how lucky you are, and how precious life is. In the next few weeks others are going to come around to make things harder or easier. Be careful where you place your trust. Notice who is really there, and who is just there to suit themselves. Keep yourself out of any situation that makes it hard to give yourself what you need.
