Horoscopes (March 11 - 17)

ARIES (March 21-April 20): All of you are getting ready to move into the next thing. At times like this it doesn't work to be scattered and it won't serve you to perform at anything less than your highest expression. Those who are there for you need to be aware that their needs are far less important than yours. The give and take in the relationship department needs to weigh a little heavier on your end for a change. If those who care can give you plenty of room to find yourself and do your thing, the next few weeks will revivify your life in ways that will take you off on a whole new track.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20): You have come to the end of a process that is calling you to fish or cut bait. In the midst of what you have to cope with, the need to grab yourself by the balls and change things has you sitting on the fence. Your life has been handed over to people and causes that have disallowed any attachment to your own fulfillment. None of what has been given up has been sacrificed in vain. All of this was meant to teach you how to live and to take the strength that you've had to embody to survive, and pour it in to something you love. It's time to follow your bliss. Just go for it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You keep going for something more than what's in front of you now. This constant need to be anywhere but here has to make you wonder what you're after. The endless thirst for what we don't have makes it impossible to connect with ourselves in the place where life really takes hold of us. You've been chasing your tail in the name of a dream and are too caught up in your own story to see what's going on. Letting go is a major item. With all the entanglements currently facing you releasing the ties that bind you will make it difficult to keep your chin up for a while.

CANCER (June 21-July 20): Being torn is one of those things that you have to be sensible about. In the middle of any transition, the soul is so busy moving on to the next thing, the act of separating from the past is taken for granted. The weird vibes among friends, and the idea that you're halfway between one world and another, makes you think you need to stay put, or remain wherever you are until the bitter end. The stalwart little soldier in you is on the fence about how much you really need to be the Rock of Gibraltar. Those days are gone. It's time to let go and live your own life for a change.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): The business of getting out and about is never what you think it'll be. Recent trips to study, learn, or teach have exposed you to rafts of new contacts and ideas. Your sails feel a little fuller than they've been in a long time. With what you're riding on now, the next few years are bound to bring a greater sense of what your true purpose for living is all about. If there are loose ends holding you back on any level, now is the time to get straight about cleaning them up. Tying things off with the past, and the forces that keep you stuck there will be a feature through the fall.

VIRGO (Aug.21-Sept. 20): If you told the truth you'd be able to admit that you don't know what's going on. From one day to the next all you can do is look at what's in front of you and deal with it. No one tells us that there is no such thing as a fairy tale and our experience is really nothing more than straw, that we get to spin into gold every day — or not. Looking at what's in front of you now, even if you can't see over the pile, keep in mind that all of it is worth its weight in gold. The magic that we've been taught too long for lives in everyday things. Your gift lies in knowing enough to look for it there.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): You've learned so much about life in the last few months. In all things you are acutely aware that it is your relationship to them that counts; it is never about people, places, and things — it's about you and how you see things from one moment to the next. You have more on your plate than usual. It wouldn't be there if you couldn't handle it. Waking up long enough to drop the mask that prevents you from piercing your own illusion and getting all the way down to the deepness of your own core will release you from the sense that you can't come out a winner this time.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): Powerful lessons rain down on us at times when we have to face the music. You have been staring down the barrel of too many issues for me to know which one has your attention at the moment. I have a feeling you know you're up against it on a thousand different fronts. The goodness, badness, or "fairness" of the experience is irrelevant. The way you handle yourself when the going gets rough is all this is really about. Any fears you might have about everything flying south could be easily replaced with the thought that you can do this with your eyes closed!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): Your ability to get a grip and hold it steady on the bigger picture is hard to surpass. If you're good at keeping multiple variables herded up in the same pen, you're less adept at taking the details into account. Those who are all ready to take advantage of you are lined up, waiting to see how far you're willing to go. Whatever it takes to wake up is what you need to keep your eye on right now. Before you let anyone convince you they're here to do you a world of good, give yourself five minutes to wonder if perhaps, they need you way more than you need them.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): What ever's going on right now, it's sink or swim, and you know it. Looking for ways to trick yourself into believing it's any other way finds you making up all kinds of stories in your head. At times like this it never pays to lose yourself in denial. Whatever you've been pretending is real for you is not anything close to what's actually going on. At the end of the day the truth is the only thing that redeems us. There is no way to return to love without the truth. Looking down the barrel of whatever that means for you is where your higher self will take you this week.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): You are walking such a fine line. In the midst of a lot of stress and pressure, the frost on the windowpane is melting just as your options appear to be opening to other things. It's time for whatever's got to give to create the impetus for your next move. Feeling torn about it is understandable. At the same time, all good things must come to an end. We don't stay in Neverland forever. Whatever is about to come knocking has already been on the screen long enough for you to know where the signs are taking you. If you're ready for a change, you will love this!

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): Harsher truths are always hard to reckon with. You've had enough stuff come raining down on you to see the difference between the rough stuff and the things that can be easily put aside. Staying where you are long enough to know if it's worth it to continue has shown you that, at the end of the day, it'll be your job to be the steward for whatever comes out of this. If the bigger part of you would love to be anywhere but in this position, know this: What you do about it matters more than anything. Be as patient as you can in a situation that'll take time to bear fruit.
