ARIES (March 21 – April 20): Everything is on the line right now. It is no longer a question of can you handle this; it is down to the wire, and you're IT. When life gets like this, higher forces are always at work - and they are there to tap in to, if you can get out of the way long enough to let them cover you. As much as you may feel like you're on your own, it's not that way at all. There's one more river to cross, but, you have it made and are more than fine. Just keep the light on, keep doing it your way, and tap into the beautiful energy that is here and ready to take you wherever you want to go.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 20):The last thing you expected could be on the menu; for better or worse. Everyone's got their own row to hoe, so it's hard to say if this will be a total bummer, or a blessing. For many of you, there is a sense of anticipation that comes right before a milestone, that turns out to be a premonition of some kind. You've been antsy for a while, wondering which way the Wheel of Fortune's going to turn. Your nemesis will show up as various forms of over inflation that eclipse the truth in ways that embarrass you. A good reality check is all it will take to keep it simple and keep you honest.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): It's easy to blame people for everything that's gone wrong, but it obscures the truth. You're in one of those heavy duty, Karmic blenders trying to deal with your feelings and do what's right, all at the same time. The fact that you can't sleep at night, or the need to keep rehashing things in your conversations with people is a sign that you're not 100% at peace. Coming to terms with this will be easier if you are willing to get off your position long enough to realize that love conquers all, and this is one of those times when your ability to love needs to over ride anger and resentment.
CANCER (June 21 – July 20): The pressure to be there for others is huge. You have always been good at this, but right now, it's totally over the top. Others have no clue what you're going through. Either that or they just don't care. The need to be 100% present and accounted for is begging you to get over yourself and find a way to transcend your feelings, your own needs, and in some cases, even your practical concerns for the time being. Getting real enough to see what matters will get you through this stretch and see you come out on the other side of it with a lesson that is worth its weight in gold.
LEO (July 21 – August 20): You can sometimes go postal when it comes to reminding people to watch their P's and Q's. It's kind of amazing that you think you know what's in everyone's best interests. The next time you feel compelled to tell everyone where they need to be going and what they need to be doing, try to imagine how it would feel to you. I have a feeling you wouldn't put up with it for 5 seconds. The Golden Rule keeps reminding you to back off. Do your best to tune in to it and instead of placing too much attention outside yourself, mind your own business and do your own thing.
VIRGO (August 21 – September 20): You've got to haul back, just far enough to get realigned with the way things are going at the moment. It isn't about giving up; it's about getting in touch with where things need to go now that your older and wiser. Go back about 7 years and check in with whatever the game plan was at the time. Those issues have given birth to a whole other set of variables. Now that you're here, you've got to get clear and toss your pictures out the window if they don't look anything like what you're looking at now. Change is inevitable. It may be time to cash in your chips and move on.
LIBRA (September 21 – October 20): You are in a bind over things that have been coming up since Day One. Dealing with them has been a bitch, but you're holding your own. In situations like this it's so hard to know how it will all end up, or what the righteous thing to do might be. Those close to you could have a lot to say about where you're at. How they see you is less of an issue than how you feel about it. No one can tell you how to handle this - but, if I were you're teacher I would tell you that no matter how right you think you are, when push comes to shove, it's best to ere on the side of Love.
SCORPIO (October 21 – November 20): YWhen love comes to town it takes a million different forms. You won't see this one coming. If it's already here, look out! The heart of the matter is about to get exhumed and transformed in the presence of someone who appears to know you better than you know yourself. As you dive into the experience, don't expect it to resemble anything you've seen before. At times like this our pictures and expectations only interfere and keep miracles at bay. This won't be your usual thing. Getting the most from it? Stay in the moment, and keep abreast of what serendipity brings your way.
SAGITTARIUS (November 21 – December 20):All of a sudden you feel like a grown up. For some reason everything is requiring you to have it all together. Huge changes are afoot. This is one of those times when you have to be real Zen about the way you handle everything. This includes people who have gone off the rails. Your penchant for total honesty has always been a blessing. When others show their true colors, keeping your mouth shut will be hard. As the next few weeks unfold, make it your aim to rise above those who know not what they do, and forgive yourself if and when your patience runs out.
CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 20): Coming full circle has required a huge amount of finagling. Wouldn't it be great if this worked out the way you planned? The blessings that have turned things around are lined up to support you for a while. To expect anything to go on forever would be naive at this point. Take what you can from what looks like a respite from too much complexity, but watch and see how what happens next takes you to a totally new set of choices. As you ease into a position that is giving you more breathing room than you've seen in while, a new cast of characters will show up to light the way.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 20): The cards are up in the air as far as other people go. You don't need to hover over them as the chips start to fall where they may. One thing is sure. You are not the one who needs to worry about how all of this comes down. Keeping an eye on the ways in which you give in has to be monitored closely. You hold the winning hand but others are better at playing this game than you are. Yes - life is on tenterhooks; who knows what will unfold. Your role in this situation is to stay as close as you can to the 'one true thing', and pray that others are strong enough to be there for it.
PISCES (February 21 – March 20): The avalanche of change that has come down in the last few months has you torn between 2 people, places, or things. The pull in two directions, along with an equal and opposite need to act like you have it all figured out is making you feel totally schizophrenic. Those close to you are either out of commission, or wish they were somewhere else. You're starting to feel like the social director on a cruise ship that looks like a cross between the Titanic and the Love Boat. Knowing how to navigate things from here will require you to rethink pretty much everything.
