Horoscopes (Sept. 27-Oct. 3)

ARIES (March 21- April 20):

With everything at your disposal it's hard to figure out why you keep falling short of the mark. While it's true that your goals are larger than life, there's no reason to believe that they are unattainable. The image of Tantalus, standing in an ocean of pure, clear water comes to mind whenever I think of you: Every time you bend down to scoop up a drink, the water recedes and you wind up dying of thirst. That concept is something that keeps your current dreams of love and success at bay. Give that some thought and delve deeply into the mystery that keeps making it true.

TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):

Anxiety about those closest to you has you doing everything in your power to try to heal a situation that may be none of your business. The idea that it's your job to heal everyone is a total misconception. Their so-called problems could very well be necessary elements on their path to enlightenment. And your fear and worry deny the fact that joy is the attractive mechanism here in the 3rd Dimension. Bring yourself to a place that realizes that in our efforts to save anyone's ass, we actually wind up depriving them of the very experience their soul needs in order to grow.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

With more than one issue coming to a head, here you sit wondering how to make it through the gauntlet. Half of you knows that you were made for situations like this, and the other half is in way over its head. With a sense of clarity that has escaped you up until now, you're maintaining the pretense that everything's under control. The deeper part of you knows that it will take a wizard to get around the obstacles that you face right now. That aspect of your consciousness is alive and well. Don't discount your magical abilities. Get down to business and sharpen them up.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

The light at the end of the tunnel is beginning to shine. For many of you, it's already "on" full time. As the picture becomes clearer, everything that it took to get you to this place will start to make more sense. Whatever you expected, your current situation is better than you could have imagined. In some cases it is more than you bargained for. At this point the idea that it's not what happens to us, it's how we choose to relate to it, has you thinking about the need to remain open to whatever fate has in mind. If you remain centered in that mindset, nothing can stop you.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

It's time to let go of the idea that you're confused about things. Uncertainty is where we wind up when multiple changes happen to us all at once. Recent decisions to drop everything and walk off the set have got you thinking twice about why someone like you is so willing to let go of your security blanket and go commando. While I understand your trepidation, I am more than clear that your choices are about to take you further into your own being-ness than ever before. Don't hesitate to embrace this. In time, uncertainty will give way to joy, and true clarity about your purpose here.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

You have reached an impasse, or a point of no return where you are beginning to see that something has to change in order for you to grow. With no clue as to what that might be you're chiding yourself for being out of control and for not having all of your ducks in a row. When things are at a change point it behooves us to be patient enough to give fate a chance to show us which way the wind is blowing. You have succeeded to a certain extent in weeding out the riff-raff. As the fog begins to lift there will be more space and time for life to show you how to proceed.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

Your insight into the workings of other people's hearts and minds is incredible. In many ways you are a boon to those you know and love because it's so easy for you to crawl into their point of view and look at life the way they see it. In your current situation, this ability is coming in pretty handy. Juggling two or more people and situations on the edge of a knife, you have developed more understanding of their issues than you have of your own, but be careful. All of this could easily get sliced and diced unless you take heed long enough to come back to yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

A little too much midnight madness is taking its toll on your day time reality. Burning the bed, and/or the candle at both ends could be taking one form or another. Whatever is up with this, getting back to normal will require you to back off and lighten up. While intensity makes us feel alive, the fact is that you don't need it to survive. Going off the deep end rarely gets us where we want to go. A little deep breathing, a little less noise, and a little more time in the silence that comes when we stop long enough to find our way back to ourselves is what's needed right now.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

With too much on your plate, and no incentive to handle it, the question is: Where will you find the energy to be here for this? Too many emotionally charged situations, in addition to all of the 'stuff' that gets triggered whenever you wonder if the people you thought you knew were ever there for you at all, have formed a shit storm of energy that makes you wonder where the Happy Camper in you went. As you begin to wrap your mind around things that are over the top, get big enough to embrace it and open your heart to the idea that there is light hiding somewhere, in all of this.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

You could be on top of the world. For many of you that concept, and the sense that everything is coming up roses, is totally real. If it is, it's because you have poured a big dose of the truth, along with your heart and soul, into a relationship or an endeavor that is filled with light and love. Even if you're not exactly there yet, it's just a matter of time before everything comes into bloom. The flip side of this image looks like what happens when the castles made of sand reveal themselves to be nothing more than bullshit. Whatever this turns out to be, it'll be do-or-die within 3 months.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):

You have been going through the mill on multiple fronts. The sense that you need to hold steady dances with the thought that you will snap in two if you keep up with this pace. Many of you are more than ready to jump ship. Those of you who don't have that option keep trying to figure out how long this will last. In the former case, you are totally free to go — and the sooner the better. In the latter case it looks to me like this is a test. For the next two months, you need to draw upon your ability to pull it up from your guts in a situation that is sure to improve by Thanksgiving.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):

Everything is in flux. What you thought would last forever could very well be on its way out. New energy, in the form of old friends, just blew in to remind you that you too have to be willing to drop everything and move on. I can't say for sure what the latest clue to the new direction will look like, but whatever brought you to this place is ready to be replaced with who you are about to become. All of us are being called to review and reflect upon our choices. When life is opening up to include things that allow you to bloom and grow, don't let stagnation overtake you.
