Horoscopes (Dec. 31 - Jan. 6)

Dec 31, 2014 at 1:00 am

Hey, Horoscopes fans! We interviewed astrologist Cal Garrison this week. Garrison discussed horoscopes, Jupiter lines, and what’s in store for Detroit in 2015. Read the interview here.

ARIES: March 21 – April 20

You don't need to overcompensate; enough is enough. Trying too hard to prove to people that you care, or that you are a good person, isn't going to help this situation. If you keep giving things more energy than they deserve, the rest of your life will suffer for it. It's already clear that you need to attend to way more than this; what's hard to figure out is why others need to keep you chained to it. Breaking free will require you to get far enough away from the situation to be exempt from its demands and independent of the ones who keep expecting you to kiss their ass.

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

Things are more exciting than usual. I am not sure if that's the word for it but, it looks like your life has been shaken and stirred by things that are meant to give you pause to reflect upon their deeper meaning. Until now, you haven't thought too much about your Karma. Recent developments have taught you all about cause and effect, and you are either delighted by the way things have turned out or you're at the mercy of all of your previous choices. Either way, what goes around comes around, and I have a feeling all this excitement has made that perfectly clear.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

You finally figured out that you can't do it all. Getting over this hump has shown you so much about the true meaning of 'self sufficient' and how important it is to know who to call when life has you over a barrel. Everyone you know is relieved to hear that you decided to hand over half of what you're doing to those who need the work and have the time for it. As you get more comfortable with the idea that you deserve to have a life, you will have to figure out if you want to reconstruct what's here or begin pouring your energy into something new and different.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20

Heavy duty lessons and levels of emotional intensity, along with "should I stay or should I go" scenarios, and reminders of people who have up and left; any and all of those things are what's on top of the stack at the moment. You know for sure that you'll make it through this, but right now you're feeling like it would be great if someone or something would come to the rescue. If I told you that this too shall pass would it help? Beyond that, it looks to me like this isn't over yet. Don't succumb to despair. If you play your cards right your deepest wish will come true.

LEO: July 21 – Aug. 20

Everything is a matter of timing. Don't put extra pressure on yourself just because you think you should be someone or somewhere else by now. Too many things suggest that your life is in a holding pattern. Whatever it is that binds you to this particular way of being will eventually teach you how important it is to adapt and how important it is not to pass judgment on yourself or anything else when nothing's going on. Patience is needed. While you wait for the signs to show you what time it is, make the most of this in-between place; reconnect with your creativity.

VIRGO: Aug. 21 – Sept. 20

You are in no position to make any drastic moves. If the impulse to do an about face is next on your list think twice before you give in to anything that will upset the status quo. It's for sure that something's got to change but your perspective is either off or too immature to understand that you aren't ready for it. For now it might be best to sit tight and deal with your restlessness on a moment-to-moment basis. Other issues suggest that the past and/or someone who's been a huge part of it, could easily return, repainted and renovated to look like exactly what you want.

LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

Don't expect anyone else to take charge of this situation. You keep thinking someone's going to handle it for you, but it's time to realize that nothing's going to change until you decide to take it on. At the moment you may be too exhausted to think or even care what happens next. In many ways you feel whipped or hard pressed to dredge up whatever it takes to do this. In the past you've never had to wonder how to empower yourself. If you can connect with the things that call up the belief that anything is possible you will breeze through this with your eyes closed.

SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20

If you weren't so blown away by all the things that have started to transform your life it would be easy to see how much your spirit needed these lessons. You haven't even begun to sort through it all. At the same time, you are acutely aware that something is guiding you into a completely different channel of experience. Those of you who are reluctant to change are having a harder time with this transition than those of you who are ready for it; the key to making the most of the experience lies in your ability to see how much it has to do with your own growth.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

Trying to get others to see it your way has turned out to be a full-time job. You are so sure you're right about this it's hard for you to understand why no one else gets it. There's nothing you can do to change the way people perceive things. Instead of injecting them with a continuous flow of thoughts that reflect only your point of view, did it ever dawn on you to ask them how it is that they are so stuck when it comes to changing their tune? In many ways your behavior only serves to force them to defend the things that keep them from even wanting to go along with you.

CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 – Jan. 20

By the time you read this you'll be dealing with a whole new set of issues. When things get like this, rolling with the punches is all one can do. Themes of 'one thing after another' in any variation are about to show you who's in charge; and believe it or not it ain't you. The aspect of your nature that thinks it's always your job to set the standards, keep everyone in line, and make it all happen no matter how hard things get is learning how to let go and let God, or some other sucker, handle half of what you've taken on. Never fear! They know how to do it as well as you.

AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20

You can't expect people to behave when they are totally out of touch with who they are. You're dealing with someone who can't be held accountable for anything right now. If you can't accept that, you need to understand that sometimes people lose it and it isn't always their fault. Your own issues are huge enough for you to see that if they blew up in your face you'd probably explode. Consider that the person who is causing you so much trouble and concern has just had the doors blown off a lifetime of trauma; and your part of the lesson has to do with compassion.

PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

It's just about time to take off. Whether you're ready to leave or just ready to wake up and take off on a whole new tangent, something in you knows that this restless urge is speaking to you from a place of truth. In the past, ants in your pants always symbolized escape and avoidance. This time instead of running away, the urge to split is about moving toward something. I would expect that the pull to giddy-up is feeling more like the force of gravity – or magnetism toward a style of life that will finally allow you to drop all this nonsense and hook up with your calling. mt
