Horoscopes (September 9 - 15) 

ARIES (March 21 – April 20): Be patient with the part of yourself that needs to stay on top of things. If that sounds strange, there's a fine line between patience and control. Right now you can't fool yourself into thinking that your magic touch is going to make everything turn out all right. Faced with bottom line issues and nuts and bolts stuff, all of us have to get real before we can get on to what's next. Your ability to deal with things honestly is what's being tested. This is about regrouping, and knowing enough to dispense with all of the BS that stands between you, and having a life.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 20): Nothing comes from pushing. At the same time, sometimes life needs a push; and it's in knowing when to press our case and knowing when to leave it alone that we eventually figure out how to behave. There is no right way to handle this. It's one of those times when you've got to play it by ear and hope that your instincts are sharp enough to keep you afloat. It would be awesome if you could see around corners but this just so happens to be a test. For now the best you can do is get through the obstacle course and figure out when, and how much to make your influence felt.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): It's pretty trippy to be you right now. You're in the middle of a very intense and perhaps difficult experience that will turn out to be totally rewarding if you manage your energy with some degree of intelligence. Don't be naïve about the things that are making everything in your reality so stressful but be careful not to be overly concerned. This is a test; all you have to do is show up, stay centered in the moment, and take the good with the bad. If you can handle it, the things that are pushing you around will soon mold all of this pressure into something lasting and permanent.

CANCER (June 21 – July 20): The next time you decide to be open with people, make sure you can trust them. It's great that you've decided to let it all hang out but in this situation whoever's on the other end of the line is either going to misinterpret everything you say or use it against you. As much as you would love to have everything out in the open, others aren't used to honesty. Issues that have to do with how long will you have to wait for someone, or something, to complete a critical healing process have taught you that people are capable of anything, and true love has the capacity to heal everything.

LEO (July 21 – August 20): Nobody expected this to be easy. Every time we get involved with one or more people things get complicated. If your visions of perfection, or the idea that things ought to go in a straight line, are out of synch with your experience it's because you've forgotten how important it is to go with the flow. The straight line that you envision has nothing to do with the lessons that are on your plate at the moment. In any crisis the best approach often turns out to be the one that tells us to become like water. Stop beating your head against the rocks; learn how to flow around them.

VIRGO (August 21 – September 20): You keep trying to balance yourself in the midst of situations that keep spinning out of control. Making decisions about what to next, you can't seem to get too far around the block before you say forget it and go back to square one. The sense of not getting anywhere, and the idea that all you have to do is change a few things and it'll all start to move will continue to be a fantasy for just a while longer. Regroup, recharge, and review the way things stand, relative to your situation back in 2008. Yes; there is a move afoot - but all your ducks have to line up, before time will tell.

LIBRA (September 21 – October 20): You can't The fallout from the last few years has left some of you totally confused. If things are starting to work it's because you are finally beginning to see what you did to screw them up. The need to stop blaming life for what fell apart has taught you how to be accountable for the truth. What's staring you in the face will bring you deeper into the mystery than you've ever gone before. Looking at how and why so much of what goes on in your world keeps you estranged from others is about to show you that you can't want for them what they don't want for themselves.

SCORPIO (October 21 – November 20): Stay tuned to opportunities because they're going to be popping up everywhere. A lot of what's about to open up will happen where you least expect to find it. One of the keys to making things happen has to do with getting out and about. Invitations to do even the most mundane things could yield more than you can imagine. And if anyone invites you to take off on a trip or wants you to sign up for a seminar, know that whoever's upstairs is just trying to put you in the right place at the right time. Who knows? In a year you could be totally free, clear, and out of here!

SAGITTARIUS (November 21 – December 20): Learning how to let go of what you think matters more than anything is a trick that few of us are able to master until we're old enough to know how to get around it. You're in a situation that looks like you'd be better off giving it up. The idea that you need anything this badly is a sure sign that you don't. It's hard to believe that in the act of releasing our attachments we begin to connect with what's real. If this is meant to endure it will continue. No attempt to force things to go your way will go as far as the ability give it all up to whatever is in everyone's highest good.

CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 20): YYou can't figure out where the ones you thought you knew decided to take this story, but you've just about had it with things that started wearing you out a long time ago. What to do next is more interesting to you, and that question has more than one answer. Whoever's in charge, and/or anyone who will be affected by your decisions is reluctant to see things your way. Don't let their hesitance do anything but serve as a regulating mechanism. While you let the chips fall where they may, review your motives, stay clear, and find a way to make this work for everyone.

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 20): The way things are going you're ready to let somebody else handle it; either that or you're trying to figure out what needs to happen for this to work. In a state of transition it's nuts to expect anything to be simple and clear. The distance between you and others is real, or metaphoric. No matter how it looks the lesson seems to be about being on your own long enough to reconnect with what's true for you. Others will be there for you or not. At this point everything depends on what you do to pull your work and your heart together as the next round of changes unfold.

PISCES (February 21 – March 20): You don't need to press your case. As much as it feels like the right thing to do, a different strategy is needed in this situation - a dose of realism wouldn't be a bad idea, either. You've been here enough times to know where it goes. In the act of holding your horses you just might get to see that you need this like a hole in the head. Others are either going to prove their worth or force you to confront your reasons for being drawn to the same old thing. You've got so many better things to do. Focus on your gifts and your own life. If this is meant to be it'll happen naturally.
