Horoscopes (Feb. 21-27)

ARIES: March 21 – April 20

Dealing with "the lowest common denominator" could be a theme. This will show up on any number of levels. It can mean that you're hanging out with lowlifes and scumbags whose ways and means of getting by are impacting your attitude and behavior. It can also indicate that you are interested in ancient history: either academic research, and/or a desire to penetrate your primary issues. Basic physical issues could be part of the scenery as well. Is it time to visit the dentist? One way or another, the 8 Ball says, it's time to get to the bottom of things and clean up your act.

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

In spite of all appearances, you've got it made. The efforts of the last few years have turned a corner and readied you for what is to come. I suspect that there will be a changing of the guard. Many of the players who have been there for you are about to be replaced with newcomers who are more suited to the spirit who has had to live through a major personality shift. As the dead wood falls off the wagon, there are bound to be reproaches and accusations of unfairness. Be as kind as you can, but don't let it get to you. Whether they know it or not, they need this more than you do.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

This is one of those times when whoever, or whatever, is messing with your head needs to be put in its place. If it's about specific individuals, coming out on top will require you to know more about their issues than they do. From the looks of things this won't be too hard because you are way out in front when it comes to brains, and much more aware all the way around. Being savvy enough to realize that you can't approach this directly is vital to your success. If this is about being hogtied by other forms of restriction, get centered, hold steady, knowing that this too shall pass.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20

You have finally landed in what appears to be the perfect spot. If you are pinching yourself to see if this is real I wouldn't be surprised. Whatever it is that has answered your prayers will fulfill them for as long as it takes for the truth to reveal itself. In all situations, the one thing you need to pay attention to are your delusions. If it turns out that you wind up being led down the garden path, you won't wake up and smell the coffee for at least a year. That's OK. In the meantime, throw your heart into whatever this is about and go whole hog until you get the lesson.

LEO: July 21 – Aug. 20

Putting up with people and their problems is creating limitations that are starting to weigh on you. It's for sure that you've just about had it. Holding your breath until something comes along to change things could be where it's at right now. If you are well aware that it comes down to an attitude adjustment, you're not there yet. This is the end result of things that were done out of love. If what you expected to happen isn't happening, keep your eye on the fact that somewhere along the way you overlooked the truth. Find your way back to it, and this will heal in a heartbeat.

VIRGO: Aug. 21 – Sept. 20

The idea that everything comes from within is really starting to hit home. At this point you are clear that you're better off when you mind your own business. With many things weighing on your soul, keeping your focus on the inner planes will support a greater need to pull yourself together all the way around. The daily grind will always be there. Give the devil his due and retain the better part of your spirit for things that are meaningful and true. As the next six months unfold, what grows out of this will lay the groundwork for goals that will support you for a long time to come.

LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

The tables have turned on so many levels. If you're too "busy" to come to terms with this, it would be good if you could slow down long enough to figure out where you stand. When one thing changes, everything changes, and the balance in your relationships and/or your perspective could use a bit of adjustment. There's no need to go to extremes, but the "old you" has to catch up with the "new you" and shift enough to rearrange the scenery. Until this happens your current state of affairs will keep knocking its head against the past and the expectations of others.

SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20

You have many things to consider. There is a new course of events coming into play and whether you know it or not, it's time to switch gears. For many of you, a new location may be in order. Changes in the lives of those closest to you may require this. In other instances, this could be about picking up where you left off with goals that fell by the wayside while you got distracted by other people, places, and things. As the details begin to unfold, the bigger part of you needs to step into a bigger pair of shoes and be strong enough to make bold moves when the time is right.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

You need to take a good look at who you're dealing with. You're either giving people more credit than they deserve, or you're totally clueless when it comes to recognizing their true worth. Waking up to the truth will require you to stop lying to yourself about what's going on. On other fronts there's a lot to say that you'd do well to take off your rose-colored glasses and do some soul searching. It's easy for you to gloss things over and see what you want to see. In some situations that ability is a gift. At the moment, you'd do well to light a candle and pierce the darkness.

CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 - Jan. 20

After wringing your hands over things that were starting to make you wonder if it was time to throw in the towel, someone or something came through and you are out of the woods. At the point where it comes down to failing miserably or winning the Olympics, the truth about who you are and where your heart lies is what's on the line. Those of you who are breathing sighs of relief have learned a valuable lesson. What you take from this will be more precious than gold. If you happen to be on the other end of the stick, the lesson is just as valuable, but only if you learn from it.

AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20

You could be hard-pressed to know which way to go. There's a lot to say that it's time to fish or cut bait, and just as much pulling you to stick with the program. For the last year or so, things have shifted in ways that call you to reevaluate everything. Whether you know it or not all of your primary issues are up for review. At times like this, it's impossible to see the forest for the trees. With that in mind, you'd do well to give every situation more time to simmer, and give people more time for their true colors to show. The tables are turning: This is no time to serve dinner.

PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

Things are definitely coming to a head. Knowing how to ride the wave when it's going over the top is what it comes down to. Dr. Phil can't help you with this; neither can Oprah. There are no instructions in this neck of the woods, and it is definitely not a one-size-fits-all prescription. How you get through the next few weeks will depend on the extent to which you can remain true to yourself in the face of more than one illusion. You can't put your faith in people whose motives are tainted. This could wipe you out if you keep seeing what you want to see, instead of what's there.
