Horoscopes (September 17 - 23)

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 20):

You have more going for you than you realize. Without laying it on too thick, you could do anything if you could only get around all the stuff that makes you believe it can't happen. Between the fears that keep you stuck on the idea that it's too late, and the thought that you don't deserve it, you could use a transfusion of light that shines brightly enough to remind you who you are. While I would not diminish any of the stuff that you've stacked up to defend your illusions, I would give anything to see what happens when you trade them in for ones that work!

TAURUS (Apr. 21-May 20):

This is not an ordinary state of affairs. You are in the middle of changes, about which it is nearly impossible to make any generalizations. Those of you who have always been clear about how to juggle your issues and keep your ego in check will be better off than those who are still of the mind that it's always all about you. The next few months will open Pandora's Box and require more of you than ever before. As you attempt to make sense of what is not yet known, keep in mind that everything is an inside job, and don't let life and its intensities throw you for a loop.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

You can't be expected to account for everything. Many of you are going through the hassle of getting called on the carpet for reasons that do not make sense. It's one of those times when you have to step far enough out of the picture to beam in on the undercurrents that really make it tick. There is such a thing as getting wiped out by forces that are too big to wrap your mind around. This could be one of those times when it might help to reflect upon the ways in which you have been used, and become philosophical when it comes to where you wind up in the face of it all.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

Walking the fine line between one phase and another is always interesting. It is in this place where everything happens. Even though it looks like you're neither here, or there, life is in the midst of creating your next move in this "mezzanine" state. Be mindful of your thoughts and observe yourself. What you do with your attitude has more to say about where things go than any of the actions that get taken in real time. The next few weeks will show you just how surprising and beautiful life can be when you stop trying to control it all and let the best of it come to you.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

The need to have things go exactly the way you want them to has left you stranded in a very small place with only one option. To insist that nothing else will do is going to keep you stuck here forever if you can't find a way to snap out of it. My only prayer for you is that you wake up sooner, rather than later because you are driving people nuts! Those of you who have already seen the light are way ahead of the game. In transcending your fears and 86-ing your perfection trips, you have gotten big enough to own the right to get real and be free to do what you love.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

If you had a clue about how big this really is you would flip out. Sometimes it's best to be in the dark about what's really going on. Keep your shoulder to the wheel and your heart in a place that can live with the amount of pressure you're under. There are bound to be forces that get in your face over the next few weeks. Don't let anyone or anything tell you what to do, where to go, or who to be. You've done enough work on yourself to know what you want. Bring yourself back to center and focus on it. This bed of coal you've been mining is about to morph into a diamond.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

With so much change impacting the way things have gone in the last month or so, you have rearranged everything. Getting back to normal looks like it will give you a chance to zero in on your creative work. If you're lucky it may even give you time to beam in on your relationship. As far as that goes, the one you have with yourself is the primary issue, and that too is changing. Being aware enough to see where you need to go next may require a telescope – or a microscope – that is fine enough to attune to the pulse that lines your heart and the clue to the new direction.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

The act of waking up and smelling the coffee is making you wonder where you've been all your life! Getting real about things is fun, until you realize how deluded you have been. As your disillusions fade in the face of all the new things that have been left in their wake, it behooves you to pay attention. Putting your focus where it counts has shown you that there is so much more to life than whatever we're obsessed with. The past may be filled with debris, but you don't live there anymore. The next few weeks will give you a chance to lay it to rest.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

Your only problem at the moment is one that most of us would love to have. With so many planets energizing your Sun you are ready to take on the world. This would be fine were it not for the fact that you are already moving in so many different directions. As you handle more than anyone could possibly handle don't let the whole concept of priorities escape you, and don't let money lead you by the nose. Recent or upcoming excursions to parts unknown will combine business with pleasure and give you a little time to reflect on where to put the emphasis.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

You can't see where this is leading and you're starting to freak out because it's no fun for you to not know what's going on. The place where we learn our best lessons is the one you're in now. It's in the process that we go through, waiting to see, and wondering if it's really safe to trust our hearts, that we learn how to flow with "what is". Between your money trips and your investment in always having your shit together, you're in the place that wonders if it's safe to dream. I am a dreamer so I can tell you for sure; stick with it – the one you're in is about to come true!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): There's too much going on for you to get too intense about your personal stuff. Who knows what's up with all of that? Ever since you woke up and realized you are the only one here, it does no good to complain, or wonder why things are the way they are. You've got a lot of good energy strengthening your independence, and some great feedback coming in from people who count. Finding ways to take the edge off will help you get back to a place that knows there is more to life than this. Big changes await those of you who are ready for your work to take off.

PISCES (Feb. 21-Mar. 20):

The work component is where it's at right now. You can give everything else a rest and focus entirely on your relationship with your purpose. When it comes to who you came here to be, the efforts that you are putting forth at the moment will take you beyond the pale; I don't care if you're working at the dollar store, or you are at the bank, you are on your way up. And if you are involved in endeavors that have a spiritual bent – forget about it. This would be the time to take it to the limit and open up to the fact that you just need to keep following your heart. mt
