Horoscopes (June 21-27)

ARIES (March 21- April 20):

Life is going through whatever it takes to show you the way. If you have issues with anything, they have to do with being unable to see the beauty in this experience, or to use it constructively. Getting in touch with the truth has been easy or hard, depending on whether or not you can see that you have created all of this. It's too soon to expect any of you to find the meaning in things that are sourcing some of your hardest lessons, but you're well on your way to seeing that none of this has the power to bring you down, and whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):

Before this will go the way you want it to you're going to have to make a few compromises. Whether you can or not is the question. You aren't always clear when you're dealing with other people. Set in your ways, you have no desire to change and you're probably finding it difficult to understand why anyone expects you to. At the same time, part of you wants to reach out and be the person who knows how to give everything they have to people and situations. If you really and truly want this, stretch your mind and your heart to make room for more than just you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

Here we go again; tell me this isn't a rerun. Cross your fingers and pray that that was then and this is now because it didn't go that well the last time. There's always a purpose to these repetitive little scenarios. This one's meant to show you how to not get too involved trying to make everything a bowl of cherries for everyone. When will you ever learn that it's enough just to be yourself? You're so overly concerned with making sure you're always there for others you wind up deserting yourself in the process. Don't do this time what you did the last time.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

Waiting to settle your affairs, no one knows how this will go. It may be best to hold off till others come to terms with their confusion. Whoever said they were up for this either doesn't have the capacity to follow through, or, they're not sure enough about who they are to commit to it. You already know what you want but what you need could be something very different. "Don't get too set on anything" is the message of the week. The less invested you are the easier it will be for you to see that it's all good, and that you could be dead wrong about what's best for you.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

Concerns about someone close have you wondering if you did anything to cause their pain. If you think this is your fault you're crazy. Everyone has their own row to hoe and how they relate to their life experience is totally up to them. Whoever's coming unglued has yet to see that they either expect too much, or their expectations are irrelevant to the times we're in. You can hold their hand and walk them through this but there is absolutely nothing you can do to alter the way they deal with it. Let it go. Sometimes you have to sit back and let life teach people their lessons.

VIRGo (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

You feel like you're chained to a post when in reality, you have all the freedom in the world. Shell-shocked, and maybe even a little gun shy, it's almost easier to stay stuck than it is to break away. At the same time, part of you is already awake to your own restlessness and the need to remove yourself from a place that holds too many memories. You've got a few things to straighten out and you have to find a way to cover your responsibilities. If you can get it together and figure out how to do that, you could be out in the wide open spaces before you know it.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

You can't let yourself feel overly responsible for others. As much as you love and care about them, it's one of those times when you need to detach. This is about giving yourself enough room to see what you want out of this. Don't assume that everything has to stay the way it is for you to be happy. You will be totally surprised by the way things go when you start to realize that life is much more interesting when we let it be whatever it happens to be. Your best laid plans are about to be usurped by a series of changes that give you no choice but to start all over again.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

Taking the good with the bad is where it's at right now. If you can't figure it out you'll wind up missing the lesson. There are as many reasons to be psyched about this as there are to be freaked out by it. Make of it what you will. The good part seems to be giving you more recognition; the bad part looks like it's about having to tolerate people who drive you nuts. When you start to get this much notice, putting up with idiots goes with the territory. You'll have to find a way around your judgments if you want to preserve your sanity and enjoy your ride to the top.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

You have been tripping out on life in a different location. Literally or figuratively in another world, so much of what you thought you wanted to do is taking a sharp, ninety-degree turn. This is all to the good; every epiphany creates an opening. And what you're wondering right now is — where do you really want to be? Something kicked in about two weeks ago. You suddenly became aware that you're not tied to this post and the visions that you had when you rooted yourself to the spot have evolved into something that requires you to unchain yourself and let go.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

Recent conversations have opened up a floodgate of secrets that have lifted the lid on Pandora's Box. You find yourself caught in the middle of things that you were avoiding like the plague. The last thing you want to do is get mixed up in this whole affair, but you're beginning to see that you might have to. Whatever you do, don't be the one to initiate things and make sure your motives are clear. It's obvious that something needs to be done. If you hold off and observe what's really going on here you will know exactly how to handle it when the time comes.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):

You keep trying to run your life as if it were subject to standard operating procedures at a time when no prescriptions apply. If you think playing it safe and being loyal to the recipe for baking up a perfect life is working for anyone right now, you are dreaming. Look around; everything is changing. You can hold on to this dream if it makes you feel better but do yourself a favor and stay flexible. The vicissitudes of providence are a huge factor in everything we do. Anything can happen and your long-term goals need to include a parachute, just in case everything flies south.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):

You're freaking out over something. It won't do to get too worked up. What is already out of control won't respond to any amount of hysterics or action on your part. When things are too big for us there's no sense trying to be heroic. If you feel the need to step in and make things right you need to know that life is always correcting itself. Getting your fingers into the machinery is never the answer. I would advise you to sit back and watch, while all of this runs its course. You'll be amazed when life metes out its justice perfectly, without any input from you.
