Your weekly readings

Sep 24, 2014 at 1:00 am

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 20):

You see what needs to happen but you get frustrated when it comes to making it work. It takes a lot to be patient these days. Too many forms of interference take your mind away from the things that make you so good at staying on track. If it's other people and their issues, or long term patterns that keep coming back to haunt you, the message is always about holding your own and being willing to see the light in all of it. There will be positive changes that come out of the way you handle things now. Keep the light on and do whatever it takes to be patient under pressure.

TAURUS (Apr. 21-May 20):

Now that you see what's going on, it'll be easier to make your choices. As others make their own decisions the way things are is being undressed. If you're not shocked, you could be delighted. Either way you see how important it is to have a clear sense of where things stand. Transparency is the key in more than one area of your life. Getting real, coming to terms with what really makes you tick, and being honest enough to say, "This is who I am; take it or leave it," will be focal concerns for those of you who are awake to the fact that something needs to change.

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):

You have to bide your time and wait until the rest of the picture comes into focus before you make a move. To get too fixated on what's next keeps it at bay. It also keeps you from seeing that another story is unraveling in the midst of the one that had been written in stone. Within a month or two you will either be out of here, or on your way to something that isn't as demanding as the situation you're in now. Nothing stands in the way. In so many ways, you are just sitting here, waiting for the dice to roll, hatching the structures that will be the armature for the next thing.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

Recent changes in your attitude have expanded your pictures to include more than the usual routine. It's interesting what happens when we realize that there is no one to blame: it's us who keeps us stuck. As you face the fact that all of this, up to and including the worst of it, is happening for your benefit, it makes it easier to see how all of it is serving some kind of amazing purpose. If that mystery is as yet unclear it's because it's your turn to outgrow your limitations so that you can begin again. Stay with it. Being who you are will show you where others are.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

You're not sure where to go with this but you are clear that you are here for all the right reasons. That could be enough to show you that it's safe to continue. The whole question of where your motives lie is the key to everything. Checking in with yourself has asked you to re-examine your fears, over and over again. As you contemplate the need for absolute honesty, you wonder how honest you are being with yourself. This is always the kicker; this is where your blind spots trip you up. Be vigilant in your search for truth, especially when it comes to matters of the heart.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

Heading off in a whole new direction sounds like a whole lot of fun. I don't know what kind of newness is kicking up your heels, but before you jump into that rabbit hole, consider tying up some of the loose ends that will trip you up on your way down. The rush to go wherever you think you need to be obscures the fact that it won't be successful if you aren't free and clear of the past. You already know this. I don't need to tell you that it's impossible to birth anything if you haven't cut the cord to your last affair. You won't pass "Go" until you finish what you've started.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

No one sees things more clearly than you. It's interesting that you get to be the one who bears witness. At this point you're a bit out of sorts because what you have born witness to has left you wondering why others are in denial about things that are beyond belief. You will see more of this before you leave this Earth. What people are made of is often hard to reconcile with what we expect from them. I've said it before: you can't change people - all you can do is love them. You don't have to let disappointment obscure the fact that everyone is doing the best that they can.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

Maybe it's time to get off of your soapbox and let everyone be themselves. It's interesting to me that you guys are so wide open in so many ways, and so rigid when it comes to your how things go. The fanatic in you may be ready to go off the deep end. Depending on how you are wired, the urge to campaign for your own cause, or the causes of others is stronger than usual. As far as that goes, you need to choose your battles. All the goodness that's floating around you right now could be put to better use. Consider the multiplicity of options that lie beyond the same old thing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

Nobody could have told you how complicated this would get. So much crude oil is leaking out of this crankcase, you may have to trade it all in and shoot for Plan B. Not to trivialize your situation but, Jesus: the God's must have other plans for you because nothing needs to be this difficult. If I were you, I'd look around and ask myself when it all started heading south. From there you might want to go to, can we salvage it, or would it be best to cut our losses and let go? Getting real is the key. It's up to you to tell the truth and get back to basics. Start there.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): The way it looks you're in a great situation, one that will flower in no time at all if you continue to bring all of who you are to it. For the longest time the weight you've carried has felt so heavy. By now you are such an expert at staying with it, that what was once hard is easy enough to do with your eyes closed. To keep up with what really makes your heart sing, it would help if you could turn the daily grind and all the repetitive motion that goes with living into something that allows you to give more time to your relationships and to the people and things that you love.

PISCES (Feb. 21-Mar. 20):

Now that you've figured out how to be okay with all of this it's not as bad as it looks. This seems to be the key to life - the whole idea of accepting what is. Within a really challenging set of conditions you have found a way to be yourself. If you're not there yet, the sooner you figure out where you are, the sooner you will see that it's your work and your purpose that matter more than any of the things that you thought were supposed to count. If you've been sidetracked by the weight of expectation, do your best to find your way to whatever the larger dream requires of you now. mt
