Horoscopes (Feb. 25 - March 2)

ARIES (March 21-April 20): At the point of greatest change ,it's foolish to expect anything to remain stable. Those of you who are self-aware enough to be taking notes know that things are totally up in the air on a thousand different levels. There is no formula for what you're going through, except the one that is unique to you. Understanding yourself well enough to stay on top of what you need may require you to step outside the box for answers. Any fears that keep you inside it will hold things in limbo just long enough to free you from the sense that your life will end once you move beyond them

TAURUS (April 21-May 20): It's not like you to be vague about too much of anything, but you're totally fogged up about your current situation. The gap between what you want and what you have is bigger than China; so much for seeing only what you want to see. Everyone else is more than clear that you've got to face reality before your illusion either gets the best of you or winds up demolishing whoever's on the other end of the stick. Smartening up will require you to backtrack through a lie or two. You may even find out that staying here will make it difficult to live with, or be yourself.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In the midst of your own private whirlwind, you are either totally confused, completely caught up, or living in a gossamer world of your own creation, wondering if this is the real you. It would be easier to know the answer to that question if you could think! For now, don't overanalyze things, and forget about sticking to the program, because life has something different waiting for you around the corner. Knowing what form it will take is less important than coming to the understanding that it's best to go with the flow whenever change is the operative word.

CANCER (June 21-July 20): You like having the sense that there is a "plan." It makes you more peaceful. The next few months could show you that "the plan" is always in need of revision — especially now that we are living in the time of cosmic and financial whiplash. Watch and see what happens when the ones who can't keep their promises remind you how stupid you were to trust them again. Expect the unexpected. Your higher self knows more about what's going on than your mind. Many of you are up against situations that will call you to split, or take off much sooner than expected.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): You are always walking the fine line between explosion and restraint. The energy level is so off-the-charts with you guys, I am wondering how easy it is for any of you to cope with your reality right now. No matter how the story is unfolding, I am willing to bet that you're looking at the back side of stuff that traces back to your baby-hood, and to signals that got crossed when the love component was being installed. Check in with yourself the next time you're in the mood to come to terms with whatever's on the bottom line. There will be no balance until you go there.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): You've been having a tough time knowing how to relax about all of this. So much is building up to a climax. If you're unaware of this, don't worry; you will feel it coming soon enough. With everything that is piled up in front of you, the old way of handling it stopped working for you ages ago. Time has passed and you are beginning to see that everything goes better with a "Hands off the Wheel" approach, and more consideration for your mental and physical health. Who knew? Keep it up and whatever you've been stressing out over will come together in a heartbeat.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): It's hard to figure out if you're trying to make this happen, or if the act of shooting yourself in the foot is just the old "karmic two-by-four" whacking you on the side of the head. If we create our own reality, you get the Academy Award for what appears to be a cross between The Grapes of Wrath and Gone in 60 Seconds. You could blame this on people, places, and things, but so much of what's happening is the direct result of things you said and did and were never quite clear about. You know what they are. If you can own up to that, this tragedy will turn into a comedy.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): Biting off more than you can chew is usually a sign of optimism and faith. You've taken on something so totally new and different it'll be interesting to see how it goes. For many of you, what comes together from here on out will form the foundation for the rest of your life. If you're as diligent about it as you are about everything else there will be no problem. If you happen to be stepping into something that's too big, too far out of the box, or too far beyond the scope of your understanding, you will find it next to impossible to put your money where your mouth is.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): You figured out how to keep things from boiling over. Thank God. This would have gotten crazy if you didn't step in and play mediator. Good advice is rarely taken but this is a case where your wisdom made a dent. The upshot of it all is that others have agreed to disagree. Once in a while things settle up in a way that allows everyone to get what they need from it. It's too bad you don't get paid for this. Which brings up another thing; you've got to find a way to take what you're good at and parlay it into something that works as well for you as it does for others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): You're running on faith that someone will come through for you. If they do it'll be because they care. On other levels, it'll be because they're getting something out of this too. What you need to remember is not to lose yourself in whatever their needs are. Both of you are making this investment. It doesn't matter if it's a project or a relationship. What you bring to the situation will reflect the extent to which you really care about it. What others decide to bring to it is still uncertain. Things will work out if both of you are conscious enough to give it your all.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): You could make it easier on yourself if you could learn how to back off when things don't seem to be working. The need to "make it happen" presses many of us to keep on trucking until we realize that life doesn't work that way. Ease up a little. If you think your will has governance over other people and their choices, you haven't figured out that none of this is up to you. Forget about being in control. Disengage enough to allow every other factor in this equation to inform you that things will work better if you lighten up and stop taking yourself so seriously.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): Something has come at you like gangbusters and you're not quite sure what to make of it. Don't over analyze that which is beyond comprehension; this is one of those lessons that has to be lived and seen in retrospect before you will ever understand it. Whatever comes out of this will depend on how you respond to the unexpected. It looks to me like you have to find a way to pull away from everything long enough to get your bearings and recognize that this is a huge turning point, upon which hinges the rest of your life. Take a deep breath and let your spirit show you the way.
