Horoscopes (April 1 - 7)

Apr 1, 2015 at 1:00 am

ARIES (March 21-April 20): The way things are going you would do well to keep it up. Not to make too much of this, but you've made something out of nothing and it seems to be working. For the next few months these words won't make sense. By the time the seasons change, all the slots will line up to create a jackpot of energy that is bound to surprise even you. To prepare for all of this there's nothing to do but show up and keep the level of dedication and integrity where it needs to be. Your health could be an issue. As far as that goes keep an open mind, hold the belief that anything is possible.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20): You are blind about certain things. You talk yourself into believing that all of this is for the best, even when you know that it went off the rails over a year ago. The need to make sure that you have yourself covered is chronic. In the midst of trying to preserve your security you keep telling whoever you happen to be talking to whatever they want to hear. In the next few weeks none of your efforts to cover your ass will erase the fact that you would do better to change your tune and try to be as straight as you can about what you can't handle before it's too late to redeem yourself.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You keep looking for answers, or pressing your case in a situation that would respond to a lighter touch. The need to have it all figured out and under control usually winds up biting us on the ass. You of all people should know this. Your best-laid plans will work out or not, depending on where you're coming from. Some of you are right on track and in touch with exactly what is needed to further your cause. Others are busy letting their denial mechanisms fool you into thinking that it's really OK to push your way forward even when everything says the jig is up.

CANCER (June 21-July 20): You wound up in this situation because you gave someone the benefit of the doubt at a time when you knew less about them, and yourself, than Adam. Now that you've smelled the coffee, you're back at square one, half clueless and wondering what life is all about. There's no sense dwelling on what happened. What's right in front of you is where the future lies. The thought that whatever's around the corner might be better than what's behind us rarely occurs to us. Trust me on this: Whatever's falling away in the form of people, places, and things, is holding up the line.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): You've been all over the map trying to make things right. It's hard to figure out why making it work involves so much drama — until you remind yourself that your entire life has been operatic. When you come right down to it, nothing would be half as much fun if there wasn't this much intensity, or whatever it looks like to you, to keep it interesting. The key to your brightness and your life is your joy. Keep it flowing. The minute the drama sucks you in, you lose everything to pride and to resentments that make it 10 times more difficult to actualize your purpose.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): The standards for everything have to remain in place until it becomes obvious that they need to be revised. There are even times when it's in everyone's best interests to do what's expedient, instead of erring too tightly on the side of righteousness and perfection. Life is easier for everyone when we remember that everyone is unique and love has very little to do with anything but making sure that the object of our affection has what they need. In the midst of rewriting the relationship paradigm let everyone be themselves. It won't work to try to remake anyone.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): You've got a huge amount of pressure to perform and put on a happy face, at a time when you'd just as soon tell everyone where to go. Just when you thought you were getting back to your old self! The way home is not what we take it to be. Life has changed you too much in the last few years, for you to think that what it has taught you doesn't now require a new handbook and a clearer set of instructions. The opening to what's next could arrive in the form of a real estate deal. Keep your mind open and be flexible about the ways in which life moves you from A to B.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): Getting lost is something that happens on so many different levels. You've got so much calling you to go over the edge, it's hard to tell if you're lost or if you know what you're doing. Having more than enough to keep you enthralled, new ideas, coupled with new relationships and more work than you can handle, sees you sitting on the line where life opens up a realm where nothing is clear or defined. Good luck finding your way. Keep the shit detector on. This is no joke. Between the truth and the lies, you're going to meet up with more than your share of tests.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions." These words are probably making a lot of sense to you right now. I don't know how you do it but the way things look all your best intentions have hit a wall. If the part of you that feels right about everything gets too big for itself you will have a tough time redeeming this situation. Those closest to you are putty in your hands. Be mindful of the extent to which your power over them can turn the tide. Knowing when to draw the line is a big part of the deal right now. Keep your fingers out of the machinery for a while.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): No one has a crystal ball big enough to tell you how all of this is going to turn out. Even the psychics know experiences don't happen to people, people happen to experiences. And what you bring to your current situation will make it or break it. At the moment you're too freaked out to be here for this in the way that you need to be here for it. Snapping out of it, and reclaiming yourself in the wake of whatever has fallen apart, is what you're being called to do. Nothing needs to make sense. You need to take this lesson by the horns and wring the truth out of it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): You could use something to take the edge off the feeling that everything is either about to change, or needs to change. It's a recurring theme. Every time things get this way you wonder what it will take to get past the stuff that keeps you stuck, wherever you are. At the moment the thought of moving on is so huge you can't keep your mind on your work. Either that or you're already gone and looking for the latest clue to the new direction. Others are there for this or not. Don't expect anyone to change, or go along with the program without kicking up a fight.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): The urge to di versify your options seemed like a good idea. If it's worked for some of you, congratulations. The rest of you could feel like your sorting wildcats out by hand. Between the demands of the people who pay for your services, and the needs of the people who get it all for free, you live in a circus of expectations that leaves very little room for what matters to you. Your relationships would feel better if in some part of the equation you had a chance to be yourself. Finding out who lives inside your skin will keep you centered enough to manage the rest of it.
