ARIES: March 21 – April 20

You guys aren't out of the woods quite yet. Just as you thought things were free and clear, various road blocks and a number of less than savory characters have shown up to test your patience, and give you a chance to see if you really are done with the past. The need to bow to the dictates of karma requires all of us to accept everything, and pay attention to what's right in front of our noses. You won't get around any of this by fighting it. Do your best to remain humble in the face of things that are hard enough to squelch your fire and make you wonder "Why me?"

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

You have so much to be grateful for. If you stop and think about it for a few seconds, what you have is more than enough. In the next few weeks this feeling of gratitude will grow into something that leads to more joy and contentment than you've felt in a long time. And what comes out of that will force you to question whether you need to stay on the treadmill of money and things, or get off the boat and finally get down to the business of living your truth. You've known what that is for a long time. It's time to pour your life into things that have something to do with you.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

The way things are going, this is about making sure you can stay afloat on the crest of a tidal wave. As one thing after another piles up around an already complex situation, you wish you could "cry uncle." Keep in mind that every apparent obstacle is nothing more than a regulating influence. Caught up in this web of affairs, if you could step outside the confusion long enough to see where it's going, you would see that every snarl has been divinely ordered to lead you where you need to go. Keep the faith and remember that patience and time will unravel all of it.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20

Who knows why everything has suddenly become so intense? You are getting flipped on so many levels, the extent of the shock is equal to the extent to which you have been living in a dream up until now. Everything is connected. If you reflect back on the last few months, you will see that whatever you've released has left room for new influences to enter. What you're looking at is a lot of stuff that you don't have a template for. This is where life gets interesting. Living your truth can be complicated, once everything breaks down and you start to get real.

LEO: July 21 – August 20

Everything flips and changes in regularly timed cycles. If you thought all of this would hold steady forever, you're probably wondering why, all of a sudden, it appears to be fizzling out. Some of you are in a panic. Others are weirded out by the fact that you can't figure out how to blow life into whatever has lost its charm; the rest of you are in the dark about what the future holds. Relax and get used to the fact that this limbo state goes with the territory. Keep in mind that there is always a degree of "nothingness" between breaths. Be still and wait on the will of heaven.

VIRGO: August 21 – Sept. 20

Nobody expects you to be perfect. You're so freaked out about messing things up, or missing your chance, you're going nuts trying to cover every single base, all of the time. God knows why you're so wound up. It could be your parental issues, or some fear of losing your position. Maybe it's time to take a look at why you're so quick to sell yourself short. So many good things are ready to pop; don't screw them up by tossing your worst fears into the cauldron! Give yourself a break. It's time to start trusting the fact that your gifts and abilities are worth their weight in gold.

LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

So much has changed in the last six months, who you've always been has yet to catch up with who you are now. If you're aware of this, you're probably just as aware of the fact that a whole lot of inner work has taken place. For some, new relationships have replaced the ones you've outgrown. In the midst of discovering yourself on a new and exciting bandwidth, you're feeling great about yourself. Don't be surprised if blasts from the past show up to see if they can get their foot in the door. If and when that happens, whether or not you let them in will be up to you.

SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20

At rock bottom, everything seems to be about the true meaning of love. All of us are getting lessons in that area that totally match whatever we have left to learn. Beyond that, the deeper questions relate to whatever your purpose involves. The constant back and forth that takes you from your surface reality to the place of total oneness keeps you feeling a bit otherworldly. No, you're not crazy. In the midst of a dimensional shift, the best we can do is drop the need to control everything and surrender it all to the power of love, and to what's right there in front of us.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

At the moment all of your efforts amount to "dues" that all of us pay to the piper when we're on the path to success. If you could see what's up on the road ahead, you would be overjoyed. Keeping your nose to the grindstone is more important than anything right now. I say this because the spirits who watch over you need to know if you're running on truth and love, or if you are just putting on a show. The efforts of the last six years are just about to bear fruit. Keep a close eye on your motives and get a grip on what the ego does when success is blowing in the wind.

CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 – Jan. 20

We go one step forward and two steps back. At the moment you are in "one step forward" mode and feeling pretty good about it. Part of you is stunned by the fact that the hard stuff that has haunted the last few years seems to be in remission. Still a little gun shy, the idea that you might be out of the woods is being buttressed by the sense that you haven't felt this good in a dog's age. New people, places, and things are allowing you to be receptive to higher frequencies. This influx of enlightened energy is uplifting enough to lead you to believe that nothing can stop you now.

AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20

You have gathered so much insight into yourself in the last year. This comes from a newfound interest in matters of spirit, a lot of self-reflection, or it has evolved out of heartfelt exchanges with people who "knew you when." Armed with a deeper sense of why things went the way they did, you are feeling freer, lighter, and more open to sharing yourself with others. This openness is spilling out to impact every corner of your life in a good way. If you take a quick look around, you will see that your work is already benefiting from the reserves of warmth that have filled your heart.

PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

You have come to a crossroad that requires everyone involved to make a few adjustments. In no mood to be sweet about it, you don't want to be the one to give in. Between a rock and a hard place, life can go either way. Nothing will move until you raise your hand and let everyone know exactly what you want and where you stand with all of this. At the same time, it helps to remember that he who appears to be in the weaker position is always the strongest. Play it cool, my friend. You will not further your interests by pressing your case or pushing your weight around.
