Horoscopes (May 20 - 26)

ARIES (March 21-April 20): Multiple aspects have set your world on fire. How things get lit up depends on the extent to which you've figured out how to manage yourself. The need to keep things under control goes with the territory. At the same time, getting too strict about things will put a damper on the possibilities that erupt when you guys let serendipity show you the way. There isn't much I can tell you. To be quite honest, everything you do during this time frame depends entirely on what you've laid on the line up till now. Keep shining — the fruits of your labors are just about ripe.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20): You've got the world in the palm of your hand. At this moment all of it could be yours were it not for one simple thing. It could be other people, it could be any one of a number of things — but you have just about had it with levels of interference that you haven't seen in a long, long time. Check your father issues for clues to what lies at the heart of all this delay. Something or someone always seems to crop up at regular intervals to bring you back to the main issue. I am no shrink but this could have a lot to do with the things that Dad did to keep you in your place.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You have to hustle if you want to keep your situation on an even keel. With all kinds of activity and a million different variables, it looks like life is a bit of a circus — for at least another three weeks. How you handle it will vary from person to person. There is no script. What will come out in the wash will be determined by the way your motives mesh with what your higher self needs from you at this time. You will have it made if you've remained faithful to yourself and to whatever doing the right thing involves. Things will be a lot less pleasant if you've been untrue.

CANCER (June 21-July 20): The waiting game is over. After weeks of wondering what's up with your life, you have beamed in on the latest clue to the new direction. It's lucky for you that you came up with a plan before external pressures forced you back into the same old thing. As you figure out how to handle what's next, be mindful of the fact that it doesn't have to be hard. You've come out on the other side of a lot of soul searching. In the time that it has taken for everything to be resolved many things have settled into oneness. As the tide turns, you can expect major comings and goings.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): Believe it or not the light at the end of the tunnel is starting to shine. You have done more than your share of work on yourself and it is reflected in the way things are slowly beginning to turn around. At times like this it becomes important not to get carried away. Pride really does come before a fall, so, be mindful of the fact that what's happening right now isn't so much about you as it is about what happens when the light that you carry is filled with enough love to shine from within. You are a channel for it. Don't ever forget that. Your spirit is a beacon of light and love.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): Nothing ever turns out, or looks, the way we expect it to. You guys are looking at a scenario that could be just what the doctor ordered. Either that, or life is making you wonder why the outer piece doesn't seem to have anything to do with the way things feel to you inside. Finding a way to bring it all together will be easy or hard, depending on the way you choose to cut to the chase. In the end, your ability to be straight with yourself is what it comes down to. If you're the least bit deluded about your motives, trust me, your situation could easily implode, or go up in smoke.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): In so many situa tions, we trade in what isn't working for a different version of the same old thing. It shows up in our relationship to everything. At the moment you are in the middle of a re-run that you never thought would turn out the way it looks right now. Digging down a little deeper, you are totally aware that you are on the cusp of a breakthrough that is teaching you more about life and love. This is a free will moment. However it turns out, the choices you face come down to living up to what is expected or going into harmony with the dictates of the heart.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): You aren't so sure about what's going on here but something's changed or something's up, and you're just not into it. Weird, passive-aggressive people are making it hard to know whose problem this is. The sooner you get in touch with why you feel so uncomfortable the sooner it will become obvious that it's time to get things out in the open. What others decide to do about it will depend on how willing they are to face themselves. As far as that goes, you're about to see what happens when someone you thought would never let you down shows their true colors.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): What's going on right now began to spin out approximately seven years ago. There could be a number of different scenarios. Most of you are on a roll, and involved in a process that will open the door to bigger and better things. Some of you are in a holding pattern, and others are at the mercy of various forms of deception or self-delusion. In the former case, there is nothing I can tell you that you haven't already figured out. Keep up the good work. Those of you who are stuck in limbo, or lost in the fog, need to wake up and see things for what they are, or pay dearly for it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): You aren't so sure about this. If it seems like a risk, the question is: What have you got to lose? At this point it looks like you might as well go for it because everything else you've tried to do has not worked out the way you thought it would. When everything we counted on flies south, it does no good to bemoan our losses or cry over the unfairness of things. Life is always and only there to show us where we're at. Right now, if you aren't willing to take some kind of risk you're going to be stuck in the same old place, wondering why life keeps dishing out the same old thing,

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): The weight of things that have become part of the scenery has inured you to the sense that it couldn't be any different than this. It's amazing what you have put yourself through. In the next few weeks there will be a shift toward lighter possibilities and a chance to unwind. Major changes in a life and death situation could be part of this. However it comes down, you've got a whiff of freedom blowing in the wind, along with a few months to get back to center. If you can make it through to the next cross quarter, as long as your health is in good shape, you'll be golden.

PISCES (Feb.21-March 20): The healing process takes a lifetime of work. Your efforts to return what has gone out of integrity to a state of equanimity has taken you down the road less traveled. To remain faithful to the task at hand is all that matters right now. Don't listen to those who project too much of their own stuff onto your situation and be sure to keep your worst fears where they belong. You know as well as I do that it's what we think about things that makes life better or worse. Stay constant in your mindfulness and surround yourself only with those who love you unconditionally.
