Horoscopes (Oct. 1 - 7) 

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 20):

You can keep this up as long as you continue to check in with yourself every time your reasons for being here get called into question. It all comes down to the gap between what you are capable of at the moment, and what the situation requires. With your confidence level holding steady, and your desire to do the next right thing as refined as it can be, it would appear as if you will come out of this in one piece. This is still open to question. You know as well as I do that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Pay attention to the signs and stay true to yourself.

TAURUS (Apr. 21-May 20):

Recent changes have seen you looking at everything with a different pair of eyes. It's interesting how you can never tell what it's going to take to get us to change our tune. With so much rumbling at the root of your reality I am pretty sure you are aware of how important it is to maintain your priorities in a sequence that leaves everything that is no longer necessary behind. With any luck you have come out of a period of confusion with a clearer sense of who you are. The past is giving way to the future. Stop fishing upstream and stay focused in the "now".

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

You're no stranger to getting things to go the way you want them to. With everything that's about to merge together part of you is wondering when and if the other shoe is going to drop. It's okay to have doubts about where all of this is going. A healthy respect for the fact that we never know when our luck will turn is a virtue in these situations. You know better than anyone how the odds are stacked. It would be great if you could come out from behind the need to be all things to all people because this is no small thing: this is about all of your chickens coming home to roost.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

The opening that you have been waiting for has been a long time coming. Be prepared to turn on a dime and get the next chapter rolling because the minute one thing changes, everything's going to change. You don't need a hard and fast plan but you could use a clear sense of where you see yourself going once everything falls into place. Others have been all over you trying to undermine the wish to make things turn out for the best. Let them do what they will. In time, fate will deal you a winning hand and make it obvious where the solution to all of your problems lies.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

You could be doing anything if you weren't so strapped to the thought that nothing's going to work if it doesn't go your way. You have no idea how your limited perceptions of reality keep your life from taking off. That's OK. Within a month or two the mechanism that pulls our head out of our butts will give you one last chance to open your mind to more than one possibility. Stay clear of any need to over dramatize your situation and get focused on the bottom line of where things need to go in order for you to have the kind of life that is more than just a show.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

You are caught up in a story that is forcing you to take a long hard look in the mirror. Depending on how you are wired, this will be easy or hard. Those of you who have no problem handling the truth about yourself are about to get in touch with more of it. Don't be surprised if what you see is reflected back to you by those who are there to show you what could be the worst of it. For those of you who are less inclined to total honesty, it's truth or consequences time. Good luck justifying your actions in the wake of stuff that you wish you didn't have to be accountable for.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

You can move on to the next thing but it won't go any further than this if you don't finish what you've started. There's no sense bringing things this close to to perfection and leaving all of the fruit on the vine. Committing all of your efforts to their highest and best use is where your choices need to take you. Nothing in your world is exempt from the need to make it the best expression of what you want it to be. Give what needs your support a little more time. Part of what this lesson involves has to do with learning how to be 100% into following through.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

The emotional piece is off the charts at a time when the rest of it couldn't be more hectic. Within a whirlwind of expectation and change you wonder where you're at. It's always about remaining centered. If anyone knows this better than you, see if you can get them to remind you to not get too caught up in what you think is going to happen. What you expect from this situation is a far cry from what it can be if you keep giving your heart to it. Others are 100 pecent there and will continue to deserve you as long as you continue to be the most authentic version of yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

You are so good believing just about anything, it's easier for you to stretch the truth than it is for the rest of us. The need to rationalize, exaggerate, or embellish your position stems from the thought that you have something to defend or protect. Don't get too carried away making anything sound like more than it is. When push comes to shove, and the Lords of Karma call upon you to weigh what's in your heart next to the feather of truth, whatever you're telling yourself right now will be revealed for what it is. Don't fall prey to the need to cover anything up.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

You can't expect people to be straight with you if they can't be straight with themselves. Be wary of gossips and anyone who comes to you telling tales out of school. In situations like this, always consider the source before you buy into whatever they're trying to sell you. Thank god not all of your friends are out of integrity. Recent reunions with those you haven't seen in lifetimes make you wonder what's really going on, underneath it all. The spiritual piece is getting amped up in a big way. Staying on track with your daily practice will make everything in your life much easier.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): You can't take too much to heart or go crazy getting all serious about things that are over and done with. The idea that the past is where we get to find the outline for the future keeps us from living in the moment. Lots of things in your reality are ready to change. Those of you who are in alignment with the status quo will be at as much of a loss as your more loosely wired counterparts if you aren't receptive to the idea that whatever's up could turn on a dime. Reflect upon your resilience and make way for the possibility that all of this could shift in a heartbeat.

PISCES (Feb. 21-Mar. 20):

Going back and forth, and/or being in situations that call you to be in two places at once is keeping you busy enough to avoid those who keep coming around to woo you or waste your time. If it feels a little too crazy, or you're caught in the thought that you really need to be there for whoever's tugging your sleeve, be grateful that the fact that you're too busy for this. It is saving you from the drama of other people's nonsense. Keep your mind clear enough to be there for yourself, do your work, and don't let lesser mortals con you into playing their games. mt
