Horoscopes (Oct. 28 - Nov. 3)

Horoscopes (Oct. 28 - Nov. 3)

ARIES (March 21 – April 20): The motto for this week is going to be; "Go for it!" With a million reasons to doubt your next move, the bottom line is, you can do this. Issues that were always there before are no longer a problem. And even if you're deathly afraid that you might slip back into situations and behaviors that form the backbone for all of your doubts, you need to realize that you are done with that stuff. Your ability to trust the fact that the universe is there for those of us who know that we are totally supported by it, is a permanent part of you now. Trust this. Trust life. Trust yourself.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 20):Life would be easier if you could figure out what to do. Whatever you've settled into isn't settled enough for you to feel comfortable. Looking around, there's a ton of dead wood, including a lot of games that you're tired of playing; and what you want more than anything is the freedom to be yourself. Lots of things are ready to fall through the cracks. As they precipitate out of your life, knowing what to do would seem to be a moot point. Before you attempt to create order you're going to have to deal with the chaos that arises whenever radical changes disrupt our lives.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): The weight of whatever it is that's wearing on you has got you wondering if someone lied when they told you, "you can have anything you want." Your current situation is loaded with details that are there to remind you that you really do have a choice. The thing that's got you messed up at the moment is others, and what they expect from you. All of us go through times when we are too concerned with what other people will say or do if we decide to take a detour, to be able to choose wisely. Don't let this happen to you. Rocking the boat could be just what the doctor ordered.

CANCER (June 21 – July 20): Don't let your ego get the upper hand when it comes to any decision. You need to be absolutely clear that your motives and behavior reflect the person that lives inside you. What looks like it might offer you an opportunity to stand out is not what it appears to be – and right now, what's more important for you is to be in a place where you can live with yourself. This means different things for each of you. At rock bottom, life is about having the strength to be true to yourself. Before you do anything, check in long enough to find out how your Spirit feels about things.

LEO (July 21 – August 20):Don't be naïve about people; your ideals only apply to you, believe it or not! Assuming that anyone approaches anything the way you do could create problems. You're dealing with someone who doesn't know enough about themselves to tell you the truth, let alone have a clue about where you're coming from. Tread lightly. If you expect too much from this it'll wind up disappointing you. Few of us know what we mean and even fewer mean what we say. Most of the time, it's our tendency to take people at their word that gets us into trouble.

VIRGO (August 21 – September 20): For the next few weeks you will be rubbing shoulders with high-lifes and low-lifes of one sort or another. The contrast will remind you that the rain falls on everyone. Those who appear to be cut from a different cloth are here to help you grow. Extremes are showing up on more than one level. The amount of energy required to keep your ship afloat is at its maximum, at a time when your steam is at a minimum. You have no choice but to bow to the needs of the body. Those of you who are still up-and-at-'em would be wise to slow everything down and keep it simple.

LIBRA (September 21 – October 20):You need a chance to regroup. The cosmic two-by-four has whacked you with a series of setbacks that have forced you to review everything about yourself. Just when you thought you had it together, life came along and showed you what happens when you overlook, overspend, or lose sight of what works in 'real time'. Adjusting to setbacks is never as bad as it looks or seems; any crisis is a signal that you're on your way to healing whatever the problem is. You might as well use this part of your journey to get grounded and meditate on what you really want to do with your life.

SCORPIO (October 21 – November 20): You have carte blanche. Wake up to the fact that you have tons of space to be whoever, and do whatever, you want. The need to adhere to a strict set of standards became a non-issue on the day that you began to see that life goes better when you let go of the need for approval. Those in authority, or others who have a hard time giving you room to breathe will be more open to your freedom needs once they lighten up and figure out how to follow your example. The light that's coming out of you is about to change more than one thing; open up to that idea and let it shine!

SAGITTARIUS (November 21 – December 20):-You are just about to step into a bigger pair of shoes. Let's hope they fit because what comes next will depend on how well you've made your choices. Instead of wondering how it's all going to play out you need to be looking at what's right here, right now. If circumstances have conspired to slow things down, you need to take it as a sign and figure out what the universe is trying to tell you. Life isn't rocket science. The messages are always clear. At the moment it looks like the universe is letting you buy a little more time before you decide to commit to this change.

CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 20): It's hard to know what to say. You aren't in the mood to listen and whatever we talk about is currently subject to too much change to have what's said today be true tomorrow. You know better than anyone what you want to do. For reasons that are hard to explain many of you feel obligated to deny what's true for the sake of something that seems more important. In a phase where your growth depends on the extent to which you are able to get out of the box, you can't afford to yoke your spirit or your beliefs to anyone else's definition of truth but your own.

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 20): Things have turned out perfectly. You have a level of fulfillment that you haven't been in touch with for a long time. The next few months are bound to change you, either through the experience of love or through a form of recognition that reinforces your sense of purpose. Be prepared to travel. It looks to me like you're going somewhere; this could translate as leaving town for a few days to work, or long distance connections that are vital to the furtherance of your affairs. As your life continues to blast off, don't take your nearest and dearest for granted.

PISCES (February 21 – March 20): It's normal for you to be hyper-aware of the things that drive you from within. If "intensity" is your middle name, you could multiply that times 10 and not come close to the ways things feel to you right now. It is imperative that you monitor the impulse to make changes for their own sake. Elements that suggest your judgment is hampered by boredom, or heavy-duty issues that make every choice subject to whatever the past dictates, are making it harder to sort through an already complex scenario. Don't try to understand this; the best you can do is witness it.
