ARIES: March 21 – April 20

This is no time to drop the ball. Those of you who think you've had enough, or who've decided that your ship has sailed, need to question the idea that it's best to give up on yourself. Before you let all of this go, try to summon up the strength to get past your issues and make things work out the way you want them to. Too many disappointments have overshadowed your life. The belief that you are destined for certain outcomes has nothing to do with what your higher self needs from you. Yes, this is about making or breaking it. Which way do you want the chips to fall?

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

Too much is about to change for you to get too hung up on your master plan. If everything you've set your heart on winds up taking a 180 degree turn, try to imagine how you will handle it. Most of us are so stuck thinking that things will go on forever, it never occurs to us that our higher self might need something else from us. In terms of your work situation, all of that is subject to forces that you cannot control. In terms of your relationships? Nothing is ever certain in that department. The extent to which you are able to go with the flow in all things is what matters right now.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

This is such a weird time. If you're out of touch with that, life is easier for you than it is for those of you who are acutely aware of how insane things have gotten. Between the dynamics in your personal life and the lack of certainty elsewhere, you've got your hands full. The need to be 100 percent willing to look at your motives, and to be brutally honest with yourself when it comes to how your choices got you to this point, can't be understated. What goes around comes around — and in your case all of it is just about to back into your space and, for better or worse, drop off a lesson or two.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20

There are concerns that could range from your work dynamic to the state of your health. These issues swallow up the depth of your creativity, and make it hard to experience the fullness of your life. Opening up your heart to the ways in which things need to change is a necessity that you can't ignore. Those of you who are not addled by these things are having a better time, but, in your case, there is a need to expand beyond a one-pointed focus and not let what has become habitual define who you are. Either way, it's time to give yourself a boot in the ass and change your tune.

LEO: July 21 – Aug. 20

You are beginning to get a grip on issues that have weighed too heavy on your heart. If getting over this hump has been hard, at this point, the crux of the lesson is starting to make sense. The idea that you are unworthy, along with thoughts that have reinforced older patterns of sadness and grief, are giving way to a level of wisdom that makes it easier to see why all of this had to happen. As the light at the end of the tunnel starts to shine, you can now laugh at yourself for selling out to the thought that you are worthless, or that others have the power to keep you down.

VIRGO: Aug. 21 – Sept. 20

You have high hopes that things will turn out just fine, but part of you is chewing your fingernails wondering if you are fooling yourself. In situations like this it pays to face your fears before they start running the show from within. Sweeping changes have altered the bigger part of who you are in ways that have opened the path to success and fulfillment. What was too much to bear a year ago is now water under the bridge. Be mindful of the piece that assumes that the other shoe is bound to drop — because your dreams will only come true if you let them.

LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

I wish I could tell you that all of this will be a piece of cake, but the business of coming to terms with ourselves doesn't get easy until we've gone through the dark night of the soul. If that sounds harsh, the third dimension is a weird place, and nothing is easy here. Whatever you're doing to keep the light on is either working or it isn't. You can't bury your feelings, or escape the fact that everything is on the line. The sooner you begin to get real, the better. This needs to include the idea that some of your favorite people, places, and things no longer serve your best interests.

SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nove. 20

Sometimes it's wise to regroup. You've put too much stock in people and things that weren't half as important as you made them. If this rings a bell, the idea that it might be time to change your plans has you wondering if a move is in order. The geographical cure could be just what you need. Why? Because getting away from what's known and familiar plants us in new territory, where we can be seen for who we are, instead of always getting taken for who we've always been. You aren't nailed to this spot. You've got bigger fish to fry. Give it some thought.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

You've got so much going on. How much you are clear about depends on the extent to which you've been able to look the truth in the eye. Some of you are better at that than others. If you're still whitewashing this whole affair, good luck. In that case, it might help you to sit down and talk with someone who loves you enough to get real, instead of soliciting advice from those who have half a brain and don't even care. If you're awake and aware enough to see the writing on the wall, by now you have made your peace and are already on to the next thing.

CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 - Jan. 20

You are caught in the middle of issues that are tangled up with time and the actions of other people. If what you thought would pan out is still sitting in limbo, don't get too hung up wondering if you've lost your touch. Time is one of the 48 laws that govern the third dimension. Much of what our little plans involve forces us to lighten up when the task of getting from A to B turns out to be a lengthy process. Within that construct, there is always a lesson that can't be rushed. You've got to sit this one out until the truth is revealed. Take a deep breath and be patient.

AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20

You have been taking on responsibility for things that don't wholly belong to you. At the moment you have enough energy for it, but these things catch up with all of us, sooner or later. Others have gotten used to your willingness to do it all. This will screw you up bigtime if your overdoing gets out of hand. On other fronts there are new possibilities lining up in the work arena. I see the presence of foreign contacts and/or opportunities to work with people who are experts in their field. Trips to study or teach will wind up leading to bigger and better things.

PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

Your concerns for others have kept you on tenterhooks. It's to their benefit that you care so much, but, keep in mind that they have their own higher self and are being guided in ways that transcend whatever you have to give. As much as you care, it helps to remember that you don't have all the facts. Their issues got out of control long before you started paying attention. The best you can do comes down to the extent that you are able to stay on top of your own shit. With that in mind, ease up on the babysitting and trust them enough to handle themselves.
