Horoscopes (October 29 - November 4)

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 20):

It would be easy for anyone to wonder how you keep it all afloat. As everything converges into a vortex of variables it will help you to notice that there are a few things that are going well. You're still here, for starters; and the craziness of the last two years is about to turn a corner. This is either feeling good or bad depending on whether your denial mechanism has kept you in the dark. Those of you who have been able to stave off forces that will not take no for an answer are a lot better off than those of you who have yet to deal with your ego and your arrogance.

TAURUS (Apr. 21-May 20):

The next move was supposed to be your decision. Now, all of a sudden you've got a whole new ball of wax to contend with and none of it looks like it was your idea. It's so easy to say we understand what it means to create our own experience — but much tougher to own it when the going gets rough. If none of this looks like it belongs to you, try that on for size for as long as it takes to see what it gets you. As the veils drop and your eyes open to what you don't want to see, the sense of shock will force you to come face-to-face with some of your toughest lessons.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

The way things are going, it's lucky for you that you're better at playing both ends to the middle than anyone I know. As far as that goes, it'll keep you safe and secure for just so long. Others have finally woken up to the fact that your loyalties are based on what is expedient. Don't feel too guilty about it. Anyone in your shoes would probably be doing the same thing. If this happens to be one of those times when it comes down to "whatever it takes," we understand. No one can blame you for wanting to cover your ass. Let's hope you know enough to cover all of it.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

The tables are turning, if they haven't already, and a whole new story is emerging out of things that you thought would never get settled. If you are relieved, at the same time, these new dynamics have altered some of your plans. Not being free to go forward until a few other issues get straightened out is where it's at. Within the normal framework of expectations and responsibilities, you are restless and wondering if your next move will multiply your options or turn out to be a one-way ticket to boring. Remain patient. Give life a chance to be miraculous.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

You've got it made on too many levels to complain about what never goes right. Before you go nuts wishing for more of what's missing, do your best to find it in yourself. There is no way to tell how much of your life needs to redirect itself. Your pictures are too full of expectation for there to be any room for what's actually taking place. The future is hatched from moment to moment. Pull yourself back far enough to see that where you're coming from is what got you here. Seen from that vantage point, would you be willing to change your tune just enough to get it right?

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

You can't expect people to see things your way. Don't waste your time trying to get anyone's mind to change, when it's your own thoughts that could use an overhaul. The sense of support that you need will come from wherever it is now the minute you open your mind to the fact that all of our support comes from within. This is axiomatic here in the Third Dimension, and it is even more so for those of you who were born under the sign of the Virgin. For your current affairs to improve, you have to be able to go to the place that knows that it's always an "inside job."

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

You are on your way to the next thing, pursuing it with the same level of clarity that got you into your current state of affairs. If you could step out of the picture far enough to get a beam on what you're up to, you would see startling similarities between what's happening right now and things that were going down about seven years back. Chances are you've learned a few things in the meantime. If your experience has taught you anything, you know how important it is to stick up for yourself. This could stir things up if you aren't careful about the way you express yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

The fact that the bottom could very well be falling out of your life is no reason to fret. These things are always for the best. Those of you who haven't been hit as hard by recent changes in the program are either already on top of things inwardly, or under the influence of otherworldly blessings that are keeping you out of harm's way. Waves that have been made through the reflex actions of those who don't know what they want will continue to turn you around until the seasons change. Don't be swayed. No harm can undermine the one who remains centered within.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

The way you see things doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the way they are. As hard as it is for you to understand this, you've got to find a way. Your self-righteous tendencies have sent more than one person packing. If you could begin to see that your model of the universe is not the only one that we have to go by, it would make it easier for everyone to get behind you and your plans. The way it stands, it's easier for people to avoid dealing with you than it is for them to put up with your judgments. It would be great if you could lighten up and live and let live.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

You can't begin to account for the way things have come down in the last six months. Going back and forth trying to figure out what it will take to tie everything up in a neat little bundle has tested all of your strategic abilities. As of this moment, you are more than ready to surrender to the forces that keep challenging the sense that this has to go a certain way. You know as well as I do that it never works to "push the river." Letting things go where they need to go may be the best approach in a situation that has not responded to your efforts to keep it written in stone.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): You have managed to work your way to the top in a situation that most people would not even be able to find themselves in. Now that you're here, the view is even more incredible than you imagined. For the time being, you will be happy enough to bask in the light of whatever this accomplishment has done for you. Within two months, there will be a whole other kettle of fish to fry, and you will wonder how the unpredictable nature of things keeps challenging your sense of order. Be prepared for a few tremors to rock your world and send you off in a new direction.

PISCES (Feb. 21-Mar. 20):

It's great that you've found your voice. As you become accustomed to what happens when others finally begin to hear you out, don't expect everyone to agree with you. The tendency to overcompensate for whatever you think has held you back until now has turned you into a bit of a fanatic for whatever your cause of truth and justice involves. Backing off far enough to see that you don't need to press your case as hard as you think you do will show you that once we find our voice, life turns out to be less about speaking our truth than it is about embodying it.
