Horoscopes (January 7 - 13)

Jan 7, 2015 at 1:00 am

ARIES: March 21 – April 20

All of us are playing Truth or Consequences. You are either totally OK with the way you've played it, or you're living with the things that come up whenever we decide to compromise. At this point, the choices you make are more significant than you can imagine, and you need to understand that the truth is the key, regardless of what it might cost you to tell it. Ye of Little Faith needs to remember that faith in the power of the universe, along with the understanding that only the truth can set us free, will make it much easier to come to terms with your decisions.

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

You can't expect people to be perfect. Half of your troubles would disappear if you understood that everyone has good reasons for being the way they are; it took them at least as long as it's taken you to cultivate their own brand of uniqueness. No matter what you think they ought to be doing, you can only assume that they are doing their best. Knowing this will help you cope with some of the craziness that lies up on the road ahead. Sudden shifts and demands to be there for others at a time when it's hard to be there for yourself will tax your inner and outer resources.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

The next time you try to second guess your intuition, beg someone to remind you what happens when you discount it. To try to approach the next round of affairs with any sense of logic, or any confidence that you know how things are supposed to go would be to deny the fact that you are clueless. When things are unclear it's best to let the fog lift before you decide where the path lies. If you aren't able to trust the part of you that already knows what has to happen in order for you to continue to grow and evolve, you run the risk of repeating a new version of the same old story.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20

The best you can do is stay centered. Too many things are whipping you around for you to think that any of them will remain permanent or constant. This is not just about people; it's about places and things. And it's also abou: What are you really after, and what can you do about it now? If anything, the last few months have shown you how much you've gotten caught up in other people's energy as well as their problems. Minus all of that, what would your life be like? Don't over-respond to these changes. Step back and let them rearrange your perspective.

LEO: July 21 – Aug. 20

You keep barking up the same tree and it's not getting you anywhere. It would be better for you if you could just put a stop to this obsession. To continue to try to get others to see it your way will only alienate them further, so stop this madness before you make a fool of yourself. All of the above could be reversed, and you could be the one who's the object of all the attention. Either way, there are themes of needing to detach whether you want to or not. As much as it seems like it'll cost you everything, the truth is the only way you can salvage this is to let it go.

VIRGO: Aug. 21 – Sept. 20

You can see the writing on the wall but you're not quite sure if it applies to you. In a few months all of this will be more than clear. If you are wise enough to heed the signs, you will see that what's going on right now applies to everyone. Your decision to play it safe, stick to the program, or remain where you are battles with the thought that you need to move, leave, or go back to where you came from. There is no right way to handle this; everything depends on your circumstances and your ability to tell the truth about where you stand with yourself.

LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

The fact that you seem to be reliving the same old story hasn't caught up with you yet. If you thought you were on to something new and different, guess again. Too many things suggest that whoever you thought would measure up enough to be there for you has turned out to be a disappointment. You can't blame all of this on them anymore than you can blame yourself for always attracting the same lesson. This is a core issue. Before you decide to give up on things, take the time to realize that the person who disappointed you isn't the source of the problem.

SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20

One way or another, you're going through a rebirth. Those of you who are having a hard time with it are probably stuck in fear or frozen in by beliefs that tell you to resist change. When everything in your life is rearranging itself, it makes no sense to try to keep things in place. If letting go feels like it'll kill you, it could just as easily make you stronger. Getting past your fears would be well worth it. The minute you start to see this as a new beginning instead of the end you'll catch glimpses of light, and hope, and new possibilities in every corner of your life.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

You are sick of settling for less. You've finally reached the point where you know you deserve to have it all. If the good life is beckoning, don't assume that it has to cost you anything but enough foresight to see where things are headed. Anything you decide to do in the way of speculation needs to be geared toward things no one has thought of yet, or toward things that have fallen out of use. It's a good time to go out on a limb. Don't let the future be limited by custom or the small-minded ideals of those who keep telling you you're nuts if you think you can make this work.

CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 – Jan. 20

Maybe it's time to settle in and take a deep breath before you think about what's next. It seems to me that you need to collect yourself, or ground yourself long enough to feel what it is that you want out of this. Too much of what you do and have done has included everyone's needs but your own — and this is one time when only you can be the one whose needs should be taken into account. The way I see it, your next move needs to include a clause that allows you time and space to live in peace and harmony with no pressure to do or be anything that detracts from that.

AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20

The next phase of whatever's going on looks like it'll be easier than what you've gone through so far. It doesn't matter if it's work, your relationship, or an issue that you've been working on for a long time. In many ways you are out of the woods. If you have any sense that this might be true you are already enjoying yourself and easing into a less stressed out way of conducting your affairs. In the midst of the peace and quiet that have overtaken what was messed up for far too long you are beginning to see that all the trouble you went through to get here was well worth it.

PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

Nothing in your previous experience has prepared you for what you're going through now. If you're surprised, don't make the mistake of thinking there's anything unusual about it. All of this confusion is the end result of a chain of events that began with a lie. Things are nuts because one lie gave birth to another and there's no one left who even remembers the truth. Don't be overwhelmed by what appears to have no solution. Start with one thing at a time. Bits and pieces of the truth will allow you to feel your way through the chaos and eventually clear it all up. mt
