ARIES: March 21 – April 20
Nothing comes from pushing. At the same time, sometimes life needs a push — and I guess it’s in knowing when to press our case and knowing when to leave it alone that we eventually figure out how to behave. There is no right way to handle this. It’s one of those times when you’ve got to play it by ear and hope that your instincts are sharp enough to keep you out of trouble. It would be awesome if you see around corners but this just so happens to be a test. For now, the best you can do is get through the obstacle course and figure out when, and how much to push.

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20
Something has come at you like gangbusters and you’re not quite sure what to make of it. Don’t over analyze that which is beyond comprehension. This is one of those lessons that has to be lived and seen in retrospect before you will ever understand it. Whatever comes out of this will depend on how you respond to the unexpected. It looks to me like you have to find a way to pull away from everything long enough to get your bearings and recognize that this is a huge turning point, upon which hinges the rest of your life. Take a deep breath and let your spirit show you the way.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 20
You can’t expect others to be anything more than who they are. For some reason, they need to do whatever they’re doing. If you feel like you’re being victimized by it, you forget that we create our own reality; part of you expects or feels it deserves this kind of treatment. Get in touch with that and you’ll be able to transform this situation in a heartbeat. On other fronts this is an awesome time to be putting your best foot forward with any project or goal that is currently in the works. If you keep showing up and put your time in, your career life could really take off.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20
You are looking out at the horizon line with a clear eye, seeing things for what they are. For some of you, things are looking pretty grim — or harsher than they first appeared. If this is hard for you, know that you can only move forward when you come to the place of absolute truth. And what’s going on with your assessment is that certain things need to be rearranged and/or eliminated before you can reinvent your life. A move could cure everything; so could a love affair. Before you do anything get as real as you can about where you really stand with yourself.

LEO: July 21 – August 20
You will be fine; don’t worry so much about how things are going. Put your shoulder to the wheel and keep your heart focused on the idea that this is exactly where you need to be. If it helps, know that you have a certain amount of external support and that it’s there for you to latch onto anytime you need it. Other things are about to filter in that could bless everything you’re involved in. It may mean that you need to pull up stakes and move on; it could also be an opportunity to take your current affairs to a whole new level and give you a chance to grow.

VIRGO: August 21 – September 20
Before you make any decisions about what to do next, settle down and get simple enough to see what’s going on. There have been so many things coming at you all at once you’re playing Quantum Aikido trying to juggle what appears to be a lot of stress and an incessant round of changes. Haul back and get in touch with what’s basic to your sense of wholeness. Find your center and settle in to the strength that comes from knowing that home is where the heart is. Make that your base of operations and it will be easier for you to see how to handle the rest of it.

LIBRA: September 21 – October 20
Sometimes you have to bow to the weight of pressure and responsibility. It’s always hard to see that at times like this there’s really no choice but to keep on trucking. And when there’s no apparent award for the effort it becomes even more important to hold steady — because the universe is always giving us a chance to show it what we’re made of. You have a tendency to want the road to success to be paved with rose petals and sunlight. At this point your lessons have to do with being willing to do the grunge work that goes with any worthwhile endeavor.

SCORPIO: October 21 – November 20
You keep breaking the mold for all kinds of reasons. Many of you just don’t fit, some of you need more space, and the rest of you are on a totally different timeline than the rest of humanity. Don’t judge yourself for being out of synch; little did you know that it’s totally OK not to be like everyone else. In the ways that this applies to your relationships, maybe now you can see why they haven’t looked the way they were supposed to. Instead of looking at yourself through other people’s eyes, know that there is perfection in your uniqueness and stop trying to fit the mold.

SAGITTARIUS: November 21 – December 20
The rest of your life is at stake. You can’t be wasting your time with all of this BS. It would be great if you could release it, let others handle it, and/or let go of the need to prove your point. As much as you think it will serve you to make things right, you’re in a situation where none of the people you’re dealing with are using the same deck. Before you decide to dedicate yourself to anything you need to get real about the fact that others are totally out of integrity — and what’s at stake right now is the idea that you can’t allow yourself to get sideswiped by them and their issues.

CAPRICORN: December 21 - January 20
The thorn in your side could be anything — people, places, and things are what appear to be the problem. For some of you it has to do with one particular person who can’t figure out how to behave. For others it’s about a specific location and the extent to which it has conspired to tie you down. The rest of you seem to be caught up wondering why the sum total of things is so endlessly unfulfilling. It’s time to start looking at what your life would be like minus all of this circumstantial interference, and to shed the idea that any of it has the power to hold you back.
