Horoscopes (March 23-29) 

ARIES (March 21- April 20):

You give yourself a hard time when whatever you're focused on doesn't pan out. There is impatience, for sure, but more than that, it's hard for you to realize that what you've conjured up in your mind isn't the only way things can go. There is more at stake than usual. You battle with the need to appear like you've got it all handled when people and events get to be too much. On a short fuse, with more than enough reasons to flip out, it becomes important to slow down, stop pushing the river, and know enough to listen up when those who care offer their insight and support.

TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):

You are multiplying your options in ways that make it seem like you've got it all figured out. Moving forward, it becomes more important than ever to know who you're dealing with. Recent connections with those who seem to be on top of everything have done a lot to rearrange your thinking. Before you give people, places, and things more credit than they deserve, it might be good to stop and look at how things went the last time you went off the deep end. Take stock of every aspect of your current situation. All that glitters is not gold, and nothing gold can stay.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

You've got ants in your pants about making things work and getting what you want out of this. It's OK; there's nothing intrinsically wrong with being ambitious — it's just that you lose your perspective in the midst of people and issues that confuse everything. If your original intentions were clear, of late they have gotten mixed up with the whims of lesser mortals. At a time when your life depends on remaining in integrity, hanging out with the wrong people is a huge pitfall. Don't take a lot of big talk and trendy nonsense as a sign that you're in with the in crowd.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

After what seems like forever you can finally take a deep breath and wait for things to settle down. So much has changed and as much of it has been rearranged you could use a therapist — or at the very least, some time to sort it all out. On so many levels the castle has crumbled and the illusions that kept everything from falling apart have given way to the truth. In the midst of what for many of you has been a total and complete breakdown, the light at the end of the tunnel is about to shine on what's left of you. Never fear. What's next is going to be 10 times better than this.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

You have a few things to straighten out before you think about what's next. Yes, you have a mission, but you can't put the cart before the horse. As hard as it might be to get back to square one, if you're not already there, that's where you're going. Don't get too freaked out by the things that are out of order, and don't let the ones who have gone AWOL give you an excuse to whine. Something alchemical is taking place in you. Who knows what that's supposed to look like? Let the past dissolve and try to be here for what looks like a beautifully intense and dramatic rebirth.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

You feel totally lost. There are times when whoever we think we are dissolves into its base components and we have to regroup and start all over again. As the weight of deeper influences meets the questions that assail us prior to any major change, the willingness to look on the bright side will go further toward getting things back on track than anything else. The train is switching tracks with or without your cooperation. Any needs for certainty will screw you up. Minding your own business and remaining true to yourself will make it easier to be in the moment.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

How you manage to keep going is a good question, one that all of you could find a different answer to. You are in the middle of things that are calling up all of your reserve strength. Within this pressure cooker, the desire to get off the treadmill argues with the need to make ends meet. The money situation is like the tide — it is subject to change. Focus less on your bank book and notice how things flow out of what we give. Others are dealing with their own share of issues. If they are too busy for you, let a little time go by before you attempt to resume communication.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

Caught between a barrage of conflicts and the desire to live a balanced and peaceful life, you're wondering how your signals got crossed. Every now and then it helps to haul back and look across the gap that separates what's really going on from what you think is happening. Any sense of unease is being prompted by this disconnect — and you are also up to your eyeballs in what happens when steady exposure to other people stretches your boundaries past their limit. Recentering yourself on aims that keep you grounded will uncross your wires and restore your soul.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

You've got your issues, but they are nothing compared to what other people are laying on you. The pressure to get defensive, or take sides, competes with the knowing that it does no good to add your shit to the pile. At this point you're caught between what you think you owe people and concerns that make it difficult to keep those agreements. Back up and look at what it will take to stabilize your situation. Side issues are other people's stuff. You're better off when you aren't playing savior. Let everyone duke it out, knowing that the spirits will keep an eye on your interests.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

For so many reasons, you have always been held up to a certain standard. Time and repetition have led you to believe that you can never step below that line. Somewhere along the way, pieces of who you really are got lost underneath your effectiveness. With a zillion reasons to be wondering why so much of this has lost its flavor, you keep trying to convince yourself that you love it. There is a deeper story, or an underground stream, fueling all of this. Connecting with what happened before your standards overtook the meaning your life is where it's at right now.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):

You weren't expecting this. With everything that's happened in the last few years, I am surprised that you are surprised. There's no need to make a move. What's going on right now appears to be another opportunity to see how things go when you respond to them differently. Yes, you have a few reasons to be freaked. Recent revelations stirred up a lot of old stuff. Sometimes it's best to keep your own counsel and let sleeping dogs lie. Instead of going nuts worrying about how you're going to save the day, ask yourself if making an issue of things will improve them.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):

Finding the patience for all of the things that are taking their toll on your mind is making you wonder if it's time to say no to a few people. It's hard to say to what extent you will be allowed to turn off the faucet of never-ending support. To make the most of all of the creativity and potential that has been siphoned off to this, that, and the other thing, you'd do well to retreat and mind your own business for a while. Peace and quiet will let the sound of your own voice cut through the noise that has to simmer down before you can begin to connect with your deeper longings.
