Horoscopes (Dec. 16 - 22)

Dec 16, 2015 at 1:00 am

ARIES (March 21 – April 20): The next few weeks are loaded with uncertainty. Strap yourself in and throw your expectations to the wind. Fortunately, you shine in situations where the only solution is to turn into a flame and sear a path toward whatever the aim is. You are riding on the wind. Get used to it. There are issues with others that you don't have the time or the inclination to address. In those situations you are being tested — not by the people themselves, but by the universe. You have no idea how much your reactions matter. Keep a close eye on the ways in which you take people for granted.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 20): What goes around comes around. You know how it works. Don't be too quick to assume that you can ever get around that principle. At the moment things appear to be under control because you've managed to come out on top in a situation that is subject to too much change for you to feel this comfortable. Temporary support from Jupiter is making things seem like a big bowl of cherries. Underneath it all? Only you know what the story is there. And the bigger part of you has a right to be nervous about the fact that you have no idea what others want out of this.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): You've got more than enough to carry you through whatever this passage entails. I see many things needing to fall off the wagon. With enough planetary support to make it through the night, the only thing you need to consider is how much karma will have to say about you and your future plans. What isn't made conscious surfaces as fate, and you have a truck load of stuff that's been shoved under the rug. Bringing it to light could get interesting. As much as the thought of getting to the bottom of things disturbs you, not getting to the bottom of them will disturb you more.

CANCER (June 21 – July 20): Things are looking up. It's been nuts for a while but you're beginning to see that all this chaos is sourcing your next trick. No need to micro-manage what is better left to the laws of serendipity. You've been through enough to see what it takes to navigate change. As waves of acceptance allow you to flow through anything, openings will occur. And it is via those channels that you will see your way clear to things that will surprise you. Your security concerns are only founded up to a point, money will only get you to the bank; faith and trust are more precious commodities.

LEO (July 21 – August 20): You are past the point of expecting any of this to be easy. You've seen and done enough to be strong and resilient at the same time. Mixed messages, in situations with people who don't know enough to be straight with you is making it hard to keep your mouth shut. At a time when every particle of your being is ready to ascend beyond the confines of your current scenario, it comes down to knowing what you want and knowing what matters at the end of the day. You've looked at this many times before. Let yourself off the hook, if need be. No one said you had to stay here.

VIRGO (August 21 – September 20): As you contemplate the need to refurbish things that got set in motion six or seven years ago, get as real as you can about what you can live with. If things have out grown your interest, and there's nothing but money keeping you here, you got a lot of soul searching to do. Weighing the good with the bad, you want to have your cake and eat it too. Wrapping your mind around the idea that this is actually possible is where it's at right now. If you can break things down, and keep what only appear to be opposing forces in check, having it all will manifest with no sacrifice on your part.

LIBRA (September 21 – October 20): Long drawn-out endings and issues that require more time for recuperation are slowing things down and showing you how to take better care of yourself. It's hard to make plans because the idea that "you can't start this till you've finished that" is all over the place. On top of all of that your energy and your aims are fluctuating too much for you to know how to be more reliable. Anything could happen. Something in you knows this. And the sense of being on tenterhooks competes with the need to pray that calmer waters will free you of the need to keep on trucking.

SCORPIO (October 21 – November 20):You are back in the saddle again, trying to figure out how to justify the need to be the "personal assistant" in a situation that is totally wacky. Don't be too hard on yourself. After all, you meant well, but you know what they say about "the road to Hell." As you sit here learning how to live with the fact that you might have been in error when you agreed to all of this, thank God you have enough integrity to be accountable for things that could turn out to be a total waste of time. Your next trick could involve backing out of a tight spot before you get stuck in the middle.

SAGITTARIUS (November 21 – December 20): There is a stroke of good luck wafting over a situation that has been hanging by a thread. If you are relieved, it's because you have finally made sense of your suffering. It would help to "get away," in body, mind, and/or spirit. New people and surroundings will put a novel spin on what has gotten kinda stale. As far as that goes you'd do just as well to go back to school or sign up for a seminar. In or out of the box, learning more about yourself is on top of the stack. Why? Because wherever you are seeking your knowledge, it's really about stretching beyond your limits.

CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 20): How far you are willing to go has been an issue for quite some time. With every reason to believe that you could get around anything, three years down the road, you have reached a point where there may be nowhere to turn. Thrown back on your own resources, the sense that you've lost your touch needs to be replaced with the thought that all of this is bringing you back to center. Don't get overwhelmed by the forces that say you will never get it back. Trust me: If you can remain in/return to integrity, whatever's out of alignment will automatically come out in the wash.

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 20): So much has taken off on a whole new track. You are blown away by the fact that all of your experience up until now has prepared you for things that are way more stimulating than your last movie. As you get used to the idea that the master plan is always subject to change, be prepared to meet up with people and things that affirm your desire to remain true to yourself. There are too many unknown factors impinging on choices that only appear to be up to you. It's your job to stay centered enough to know what you need out of this, and allow fate to handle the rest of it.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): You've figured out it's your job to know what's going to happen next. What you are also aware of is that you are dealing with people who need to think that everything is "their idea." Getting this situation into gear will require you to find a strategy that works, and that allows you to live with yourself at the same time. Others are of the mind that all of this is hunky-dory. If they are in their right mind there is no problem. If there is any lack of awareness, or unconsciousness about things that only you can handle, it's time to give everyone else a good reason to see it your way.
