Horoscopes Cal Garrison:
ARIES (March 21-April 20): The way things are going, it's either up or down, depending on the way it's been up till now. All kinds of stuff has popped up to bring you back to center. These things take place in their own way. Those of you who are having a tough time are wading through tons of crap. If it's hard to get the point – hang in there, in time the truth is bound to set you free. Those of you who are on a roll are looking at a whole other story. Erasing the thought that it's too late to turn your life around would be a good place to start. Stay clear. Hold steady. The next few weeks are pivotal.
TAURUS (April 21-May 20): Waiting for other people to come around will take longer than expected. At this point it's hard for them to keep up with you. In some cases you are dealing with someone who needs to know that all of this is their decision. In the time that you've had to watch them keep sitting on the fence, you have figured out how to make the best of this. In the process, your life and your work are taking off like a rocket. Keep up the good work. As much as the last few months have tested you to the limit, the part of you that knows how to survive is alive, well, and totally kicking.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your next move can't be calculated in advance. Many of you are on ice that is way too thin to be fooling around. Bold moves won't work and neither will the idea that all your ducks need to be in a row for this to work out the way you want it to. If your control issues are off the charts, rein them in enough to see that all your chickens are coming home to roost and you're going to have to go with what you've woven into the situation up to this point. No one can tell you how this will pan out. The thought that what's going on right now will make you or break you isn't too far off.
CANCER (June 21-July 20): Nobody is an island but there's such a thing as having too many people up your butt! My god! What is it about you that makes the idea of attachment so important? Instead of being all things to everyone, put a little time and space between you and the one you become when your life is all about everyone else. Keep this up and you will lose it – to the task at hand or to the idea that you need to hold what others don't know how to keep in one piece. The message is simple: come down to Earth and focus your energy on the things that have some bearing on your own life.
LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): The dream come true has arrived with a whole new set of problems. Catching up with what has not been dealt with or dealing with stuff that hasn't seen daylight in eons is a huge part of the lesson right now. Don't go looking for a prescription for it. This experience belongs to you, and anyone who tries to tell you how to manage it is probably projecting too much of their own stuff onto your life. One day at a time, and playing it by ear is the name of the game. As you try to find yourself in the midst of all of this, remain totally flexible and keep your sense of humor.
VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): You are all dealing with your own rendition of being torn between two people, places, or things. If you give it some thought, it's always been this way with you. Trying to make up your mind about where things need to go is nothing new. It would be great if you could get out of your head and bring yourself back to what's in front of you now. Your current situation needs more attention than you are giving it. This business of getting your ducks in a row will go so much better if you take one thing at a time, stay in the flow, and let the master plan evolve as you go.
LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): How things pan out is still open to question. The wish to keep everything simple will be met with a certain amount of resistance from those who create interference or who choose to ignore the fact that it'll cost you a lot more than money to play games with them. You'll have a tough time going along with anything that takes up too much of your time. While others are sitting and waiting, currents of fear prompt you to move in directions that are counterproductive. Hanging in there no matter how much you wish you could walk away will keep this situation from turning against you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): You have been through more than your fair share of tests. How those experiences are shaping up inside you is a long story – god knows how you're making sense of things. The need to keep your energy tied to something that is real can't be stressed powerfully enough. People and their stuff have blocked too many possibilities, for far too long, for more patience to be the appropriate M.O. In your shoes I would be inclined to, "Just say fuck it." Ask yourself if any of this belongs to you, and break away from these chains: Pour your heart into things that have meaning.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): Whatever this is about, something good will come of it. You have so much to give the things that have made it difficult for you to come forward are no longer an issue. It's hard to know which way to go with some of the things that have kept you from losing your mind. If your faith has gone AWOL, it's because it is being revamped. External pressure and the weight of expectation is on the increase, at a time when the bigger part of you is more than ready for this to be all there is to it. Buck up and keep in mind: if it doesn't kill you, it'll make you stronger.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): The waiting game is just about over. Nothing short of a miracle can save this; that's how it feels for some of you. The hardest thing you've ever had to face could be on the menu. No one can tell you what to do about it. If fear is the operative word, it will show up as an obsession for money and things. Your willingness to place your faith elsewhere is part of this test. Given what we know, you see what you must do. Mythic proportions notwithstanding, everything is on the line, and all of it hinges on the way people handle the truth. Like it or not, it looks like it's your job to tell it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): So much hinges on diplomacy. As you sit here, seeing through every last bit of BS, it's so hard to keep your mouth shut. At the end of the day you will be glad that you are so good at playing politics. You have finally figured out that it's not your job to set things right. Only lately have you realized that they were never that way to begin with, so what do any of us have to go by? Keep your manners sharp and your cards close to your chest. The next few weeks will be the price you pay for whatever it is that requires you to be so patient with things that drive you nuts.
PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): The only way to know anything for sure is to check in with your higher self, or the man upstairs, or the stars, or whatever it is that lights your path. There is no one on the planet who could tell you where to go with this. You could be on the verge of a total transformation, or on your way down yet another bunny trail. At the end of the day, it's all the same. You guys get your lessons with more openness than the average bear. With just enough wisdom under your belt to be more cautious than you were the last time, give yourself time before you run with this. mt
