Horoscopes (Dec. 24-30)

ARIES: March 21 – April 20

You don't need to worry so much about where your strength lies. You have more than enough strength. The bigger problem seems to lie in what you do with it. I say this because many of you give it all away, and this gets to be a problem when everyone on the planet decides to tap into it. If there are just as many among you who hoard your power for fear of losing it, I am here to tell you that you're as much at risk as your codependent counterparts. No matter where you're at with this, right now it is extremely important that you connect with your power in a positive way.

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

You're trying to maintain a positive attitude in a situation that that would drive anyone else to feel like there's no hope. Why is it always your turn to be the tower of strength? Years of practice; or is this just one of those times when someone has to act like they know everything's going to be OK? None of this is as hard as it looks. You know as well as I do that there's always a way — and if you can be inventive and flexible, the next month or two will see you coming out on the other side of a rough patch with more love for yourself and more reverence for life.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

You may not know exactly what you want, but you are totally clear about what you don't want; and for the first time in your life you're ready to open up to the idea that you have a right to say no when things don't work for you. You finally see that whoever has a problem with it might not get over it. The thought that you might lose them has become less of an issue than the thought that you could easily lose yourself. If you can stick with the decision to stay true to yourself, you will see that boundaries are only there to help us define where we stop and others begin.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20

You can't allow yourself to get too upset about this. It's a tough lesson for sure, but it's not as bad as it looks. If you had a wide angle lens you'd be able to see around the corner and know that all of this is serving a purpose that will ultimately bring you exactly where you want to be. Don't let others and their changeable ways disrupt your sense of composure and clarity. No matter how vulnerable you feel, broadcasting from a position of strength will do more to further your interests than caving in to the thought that you're out of control, or in doubt about what you want.

LEO: July 21 – August 20

The silver lining in this situation started to show up a few weeks ago. If you haven't seen it yet, it's because you're more caught up in the reality of things than you are with the subtler aspects of human experience. It looks to me like something seemingly insignificant in the form of a person, or an idea, or a chance to go down a completely new road, popped onto the screen when you weren't looking. Scroll back to any sign you might have received; I guarantee you that the way out has already made itself known. As soon as you tune into it, your troubles will cease.

VIRGO: Aug. 21 – Sept. 20

Don't put a damper on your enthusiasm; it's good to be excited about things. Just be aware that your responses are laced with the need to see what you want to see at a time when some of the people and situations you're attracting aren't what they might appear to be. If you decide to go ahead and let your impulses be your guide, make sure you bring your street smarts along. It looks to me like games you've never played and people who are either narcissistic or just out to suck your energy could lead you down the garden path and leave you there to pick up the pieces.

LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

The silent treatment, or some variation of 'lack of communication', has made it hard for you to see what's really going on with your situation. Not talking about things always screws them up; I don't care how much you think keeping quiet is the best way to handle this. This could be more about you not wanting to be the kind of person who loses their temper, and isn't always on top of things and totally together all of the time. You've got a few things to get off your chest. Don't apologize for it. Whoever has to put up with your anger loves you enough to hear you out.

SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20

The way things are going, you're beginning to wonder what made you think this would be easy. It looks to me like you had no clue that your trip down the garden path would wind up someplace else. I'm not saying things are bad; this is more about thinking you were doing one thing and finding out that your new project would see you neck deep in numerous forms of intensity. Life will ease up the minute you see this as an initiation into its deeper mysteries. If you keep looking at things as if they were impossible, you will miss the chance to turn this into a miracle.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

You have had enough hard work to feel like a well-deserved rest is about all you can handle right now. Luckily, the fates have arranged an opening in your schedule which will allow you to get off the treadmill and go do nothing for a while. Even if it's just for a day, your recuperative powers are strong enough to bring you back to life. Beyond the need to stop and smell the roses, the bigger part of you needs to get squared away with what you want out of both your relationships and your life in general. It's time to shift gears. Slow yourself down enough to make the turn.

CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 – Jan. 20

The next time anyone asks you if this is worth it, what will you say? From day to day, you go from being totally clear that it's worth everything you've poured into it to wondering if you've been nuts all along. From here on out, your efforts will begin to show you that there was a reason for all of this. As you assess the fruits of your labors, keep in mind that you won't be expected to pour out huge amounts of time and energy forever. Have the foresight to see that what you are doing now is paving the way to a much more comfortable setup not too far down the line.

AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20

You don't have to feel overly responsible for things that are really other people's business; what's up with the idea that this is your job? If you stop long enough to look at what you're doing, what good does it do to hold someone else together when your own stuff is where you need to be putting your attention? By the time you read this, you will either be fed up or still going overboard with the "let me be of assistance" routine. You would be so much happier if you could leave others to their own devices and get in touch with things that are relevant to you.

PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

The wall of denial came down about a week ago; isn't it interesting to finally wake up and see all the stuff that was hiding behind your blind spots? For whatever reason, others decided to play "tell the truth" and now here you are trying to figure out how you could have missed it. The fear that the elephant in the living room might mess up whatever you were dreaming about comes down to whether you can handle another meltdown. This isn't anything you haven't seen before. Before you can wrestle it to the ground, you'll have to find a totally new way to approach it.
