Horoscopes (August 24-30)

ARIES (March 21- April 20):

You are sitting on the cusp of a change that will give you a whole new set of problems to deal with. It will be interesting to see how you handle it when what you wanted more than anything finally comes to pass. Others are very much part of this. As much as you are totally clear about what needs to happen, you're just as clear about the fact that you may not be ready for what it will require of you. Once you find your balls, stepping into a bigger pair of shoes, and growing up, and owning the fact that you're ready to chew up tons of old karma, will start to feel doable.

TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):

The strangeness of things is being underscored by the fact that you have doubts about how far to take this. There will be no success until you realize that how far we take anything depends on how deep we're willing to go. You didn't expect to wind up in this position. If it makes absolutely no sense, stop looking at externals for the answer to whatever's going on. All of your doubts will be erased by someone who comes along to remind you that what goes on, on the surface of our lives, only begins to come together when the inner piece is whole and complete.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

Someone let you out to play and you're not ready to go back in; too bad the bell is about to ring. For most of you, this will pose no problem. You've been putting out 300 percent and are not the least bit concerned with the who, what, when, where, or how of what happens next, because you're more than ready for it. Others are not so sure. Feelings of trepidation haunt those of you who have traded too heavily in the realm of compromise. If it's hard to know where you sit with all of this, turn the pages back 12 years and re-examine each one of the choices that brought you here.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

Hitting the jackpot comes to mind; you guys are opening to receive something that is highly beneficial. This will mean different things for different people. Many of you are heading out on a vacation. Others are about to receive a promotion, maybe even a raise. Another facet of this would give some of you an opportunity to clean up financially, blessed by strokes of luck and guided by the notion of being in the right place at the right time. This is no time to hide out. Getting out and about, and trusting the universe deeply enough to take chances is where it's at.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

It looks to me like there is nothing in the way. If this is hard to believe it's because you're relying too much on the past to define your future. All of us have reached the point where we have everything we need to create whatever we want; many of us even know how to perform this special magic. Whether you like what's going on, or you're still displeased with the hand you've been dealt, your life is getting ready to dispense every ounce of good that is inherent in it. Can you be here for this? It's time to let the light shine through, any which way you can.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

You stand firm in the midst of a lot of stuff that makes you wonder how you do it. Up until now you've relied upon true grit to keep yourself afloat. At some point along the line you shifted over into an other-dimensional relationship to all of this that has turned you into a wizard at making anything work. Part of it has to do with the fact that you have no choice, but the rest of it goes much deeper than that. That being said, fear, pain, guilt, suffering, and sacrifice are no longer an option. Joy is the key. Don't lose yourself to the belief that doing what you love has to be hard.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

Standing in the middle of your life you're wondering what things would look like if all of this got rearranged. Desperately wanting to return to some state of balance, you're smart enough to know that it can only be achieved if you get back to center. For the next few weeks you're going to need to let go of your preoccupation with what others want out of this, and figure out where you really stand. Because it isn't about them, or anything external. All of this would look fine to you if you could find a way to see it that isn't colored by the need for everything to stay the same.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

The right use of power is more important to you than it is to the rest of us. You guys are always walking the line where purity and corruption do the twist. I don't know who's hanging out in your neck of the woods but you'd be wise to double check on where they're coming from. In all things it's vital that you pay close attention to everything that is said, done, or agreed to on paper. This isn't about paranoia. It's about discernment and being able to see through other people and their BS before it gets the best of you. Let your good sense rule and always take the high road.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

You've turned this into a circus, and everyone's having a ball, or things are in a state of total and complete chaos. Newsflash: it's your job to make the best of this. The bigger part of you would love to be off the hook. Too much of your own stuff feels like it needs to take precedence over everything else. That may be so, but at this point it is totally inappropriate for you to be figuring out how to do anything but be a grown-up. Your needs always have their place, as do the wishes of your heart; but none of that will coalesce if you can't be big enough to do the next right thing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

Take care of yourself and just "pay attention" — you know enough about the truth to see what's going on. Others need you to be the one who stays clear enough to pull them through. At this point, the residue of negativity and the usual round of the same old thing has taken you right to the edge. Whenever you find yourself in this position, the faint hope that someone or something will come along to redeem it fuels all of your daily prayers. What happens next is about waking up to the fact that for some strange reason you are always the one who comes to save the day.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):

Now that the pressure is off you're beginning to pop back into a reality structure that has as much room for you as it does for everything else. The short form on that would be: You're returning to the place where you have room to breathe. The creative spark has yet to be lit on the flame that lights the way to the next thing. At this point your main task concerns the need to be human. Sunlight, water, and enough earth under your feet to keep you grounded; combine these with the things that give you joy and that's where your heart needs to go for the next two or three weeks.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):

Sometimes it pays to reconsider our reasons for putting too much faith in the wrong people. Depending on whether or not you've been able to "stop the madness," you are either no longer in a state of compromise, or you are totally whipped by issues that have taken over your life. It's never too late to wake up and do the right thing. The next time whoever this concerns shows up to run you around, you might want to look at what it gets you. You have too much going for you to trade all of it in for an agenda that could easily wind up turning in on itself, and you.
