Horoscopes (June 11 — 17)

ARIES (March 21-April 20): The way things are going, this is about making sure you can be there for way more than you bargained for. As one thing after another piles up to add to an already complex state of affairs, you wish you could say you’ve had enough. Whatever seems to be in the way is here to serve as a regulating influence. The nature of your affairs has gotten so wound up, if you could step outside yourself long enough to see where this is going, you would see that every snarl has been divinely ordered to lead you where you need to go. The reward of patience is patience. Hang in there.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20): What you need out of this is a far cry from what you’re getting. It’s fine to be so willing to live with it, but what are you settling for? As the entire reality structure enters the Eye of the Needle, what makes you think feeling safe and secure is even relevant? Issues that relate to practicalities, to your responsibilities, and to the idea that custom holds a place in the scheme of things, have caused you to numb your soul to possibilities that could be yours the minute you start to believe in them. Trust me: Getting out of the box is easy once you open your eyes and pop the lid.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Moving on to bigger and better things has altered your landscape just enough for you to see how much things have changed since you began this journey. This is feeling good or bad, depending on how you’ve conducted yourself in the last nine or 10 months. Those of you who know what it means to be accountable are most likely being held high by your friends, your connections, and your efforts to make what’s good about life even better. Those of you who are prone to self deception are mired in a crisis that won’t abate until you see that blame obscures the truth.

CANCER (June 21-July 20): You’ve put enough time into a situation that will only produce more of the same. The only way you can rationalize staying put is to find a way to invigorate what’s going on here. Some of you are resigned to making sure that the status quo remains the same. What if it didn’t? And what if life brought you to a place that really is, beyond your wildest dreams? Don’t be shy about asking for what you want. And if others have a problem with it, let it be theirs. Life is too short, you’ve waited too long, it’s time to wake up and be who you are before it’s too late to make the best of it.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): Doing it all has taken on a whole new meaning. Hopefully, whatever it gets you is worth as much to you as it is to whoever is benefiting from all this love and largesse. Don’t chastise yourself for being too generous. The world is moving to a place where love and sharing are the only method of exchange. You can give yourself a hard time for being such a softie; it may even look like it’s time to stop with all the giving, long enough to look after your own needs and interests. But what else can you do? As long as it’s all in the name of love, you’re learning your lessons.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): The way things are going, you have no choice but to surrender. For some of you, this is no problem; you’ve gotten to the point where it’s all good no matter what. Those of you who have control issues, or who happen to be too fixated on custom and approval, are probably wigging out over the fact that your pictures aren’t playing out in real time. Your comfort zone is about to stretch to include a hell of a lot more than what you’re ready to allow. Who are you to put limits on the way things go? For better or worse, it’s time to open your heart up to all of it,

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): The energy and time that have gone into the last nine or 10 months have left you stretched to the limit. Going back and forth, or up and down has tested your ability to stay balanced. It’s in going to extremes that we find ourselves, somewhere in the middle. This time. you feel like too much of who you are has been sacrificed to the issue, or the problem. With no strength left, life is calling you to change, and you’re going up and down on an issue that goes all the way back to your birth. Don’t go crazy trying to keep it all going. Let life be what it is until you rejuvenate.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): Who knows why everything has suddenly become so intense? You’re getting flipped on so many levels, the extent of the shock is commensurate with the extent to which you have been living in a dream up until now. Everything is connected. If you reflect back on the last few months, you’ll see that whatever you released has left room for new influences to enter. And what you’re looking at is a lot of stuff that you don’t have a template for. This is where life begins to get real. Living your truth gets more complicated once you venture out of the box.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): You have so much going on, the whirlwind is spinning in a spiral of change that’s either feeling perfectly balanced or totally chaotic. Don’t get weird about anything that isn’t fitting whatever you thought was true — because your life has opened up to the idea that everything can be healed and all of it is receptive to that which is in your highest good. The spiritual focus is stronger than ever and will be supported by anything you do, outdoors, in nature, in that realm that is not subject to anything but the power of Spirit. This is a time of rebirth. It’s your turn to wake up!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): The way things are going, you’re totally clear about where you stand, but you have less of a beam on where other people are coming from. Dealing with them and their idiosyncrasies is where it’s at for you right now. As much as it’s tough to be the one who has it all figured out, you are fully aware that side issues always have the potential to bollix everything up. The tail could very easily be wagging the dog in your reality. If that’s the case, cast a clear eye of discernment upon the ways you’ve been deceived, or sucked in by whatever constitutes glamour in your reality.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): The need to keep half an eye on your responsibilities could be your saving grace in a situation that makes you wish you felt better about it. As enigmatic as that sounds, the fact is you’re so bored with so much of what’s going on, you’re starting to wonder if you need to get out, or at least get off at the next stop. As life continues to ask you the same old question, at least you have a much better handle on how to answer it and are beginning to realize that nothing changes; we just keep turning it around in our hands and experiencing it from every angle.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): The way the wheel has been turning, you’re OK with all of it. In the midst of a lot of issues that relate to what’s right and what’s wrong, you’re beginning to see that these things are relative to where we stand with life at any given moment. Right now the universe seems to be asking you to hold your own in the face of numerous attractions and addictions that would seduce anyone into thinking they were the right thing. Hold off for at least two weeks before you decide what’s up with people. You can’t be too sure about people who confuse the money piece with their affections.
