Horoscopes (October 15 - 21)

Oct 15, 2014 at 1:00 am

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 20):

In and around more interference than most of us will ever have to deal with you have managed to survive. As forces that rely heavily on time and the actions of other people hold you in their grip, your only recourse is to keep yourself centered and make sure that you don't get caught up in the webs of intrigue that keep getting woven out of other people's bullshit. Those of you to whom this may apply need to keep your shit detectors on. Those of you who have already run the gauntlet are about to come out on the other side with much to justify what it's taken to get here.

TAURUS (Apr. 21-May 20):

Nobody needs to tell you what's going on. You've had it with everyone coming around to try to show you how it goes. The bigger part of you is so fed up it would be great if something would come along to change the scenery. With everything you've had to release in the last month or so, you want to start all over again. Between the sense of needing to clear the past, and the desire to embrace the future, you're in an interesting place. It would behoove you to consider your next move with much more caution than you used when you made the choices that brought you here.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

It's not like you to hide behind anything. It looks to me like you're caught in a situation that has you too compromised to allow you any freedom of expression or movement. This ain't you. I am sorry but it's time to find a way to be who you are. Those who can't handle it will have to find a way because all of this duplicity, hypocrisy, and denial will take its toll on your health in the end. In and around all of this weirdness you've got a mountain of ordinary life pressure, making it imperative that you keep it simple and do your best to give more life to what's true for you.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

The next few weeks will see you hustling and moving around, trying to figure out how long it's going to take to get yourself from A to B. This is literal or metaphoric, depending on where you are at with yourself. The essence of it boils down to changing your reality to reflect more of who you are. Cutting through the mask of outer expression has shown you so much more about who you are than you were aware of a year ago. Now that you have a clear sense of what needs to change your higher self is 100 percent present and accounted for, ready and willing to bring it to life.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

Your sense of entitlement can be problematic, at times. Be wary of the extent to which you assume too much about, or expect too much from people and things. If the next few months don't wake you up to the fact that you aren't the center of the universe, you will wish you paid more attention to what I am about to say. You are a channel for light. Don't get lost in the illusion that your "greatness" has anything to do with it. And your task right now is to become humble enough to allow the light to flow through without needing anything about you to be identified with it.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

You've got too much on your plate but so what? "Work and Sleep" has always been your easiest, most comfortable mode of expression. Lord knows what would happen if you had a break and enough time to take care of your own stuff. It's interesting to be the most industrious human being on the planet. I am sure there are times when you wish it was someone else's turn. When it all comes out in the wash, the truth is, you love your work, and your continued dedication to what's going on right now will pay off in spades if you give it your all just a little while longer.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

You deserve a medal for just coming out of all of this in one piece. And what you're left with doesn't look anything like what you expected because you didn't take this route to wind up where everybody else does. As much as you keep expecting things to look like "they're supposed to." as far as you are concerned, no one knows what that is. All your pictures of perfection and whatever you keep thinking is supposed to go the way you planned pales in comparison to the wonders you create whenever you wind up outside the lines. Good going. More of this will get you far.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

Strange as it sounds, love is the thing that makes it hard for us. The fact that we want it more than anything lies at the heart at some of the things that feel so confusing to you now. Don't dismiss other people's feelings at a time when they are expected to be more than sensitive to yours. Navigating the relationship maze will be easier for those of you who have had steady contact with the dating game. Those of you who have been out of the loop or on the sidelines for any length of time are going to have to learn how to make room for more than you bargained for.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

You've got your finger in too many pies and it's got you all wound up, trying to keep it all under control. The idea that things are going too far too fast, or that they are running on empty is creating the sense that it's up to you to keep it all under control. You know as well as I do that you are not in charge here. Instead of wondering how you're going to keep everything in line, try doing whatever it takes to find that place in you that knows it's all fine. It may be time to hit the woods, or go fishing, or go anywhere that reminds you how to breathe.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

The ones who claim to know you well have never seen you this wound up. It's hard for them to understand why, all of a sudden you've decided to take off on a new and different tack. I can see why you're excited about any prospect for newness and change. As you look at what it takes to reconfigure things that have outlived their usefulness, what it takes for you to let go and move on will show you that nature hates a vacuum. Things will start moving at warp speed the minute you remember how to take your hands off the wheel and steer clear of the need to control everything.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): It's a good thing you know enough to read between the lines. Other people and their motives are so transparent you can't believe that they aren't the least bit self conscious about their behavior. Of late all of their tactics appear to be coming from a place that is too unconscious, or too corrupt and dishonest for your taste. As you weigh the need to play both ends to the middle, consider the existence of possibilities that lie outside this box and picture yourself in a situation that doesn't require you to compromise, or sell your soul to the Devil just to preserve your sense of security.

PISCES (Feb. 21-Mar. 20):

The ability to remain clueless about things is a blessing and a curse, but sometimes I wonder about you. Is it about seeing what you want to see or is it about having blinders on? For some of you this way of relating to life works like a charm. You are fortunate to be able to shut off your judgments and your issues. For others, it's getting harder and harder to keep your eyes closed to the ways in which people keep coming around to exploit your time and your generosity. Posers and those who misrepresent themselves are everywhere. Keep your guard up and your eyes peeled. mt
