ARIES: March 21 – April 20

So many things are coming to a head, even if everything appears to be business as usual. The fact is that it's all on the line right now. For what it's worth, you need to understand that you won't get anywhere by doing the same old thing. Stepping out of the box and embracing your true nature is imperative. Why? Because you didn't come here to live a simple or trivial life. Those closest to you need to make room for the fact that you are on a roll that will require them to step back and realize that their future relies heavily upon their willingness to serve your interests.



TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

If at the moment everything feels a bit chaotic — and at the very least, a little tentative — you've got more support than you realize. From a bird's-eye view it looks to me like you will be out of the woods in no time. Between now and then, how it all turns out depends entirely on your ability not to get sucked in by your fears or twisted up by your primary issues. This will involve self-awareness and accountability. These things are easier said than done, so in all things be 100 percent honest with yourself, be discerning about the company you keep, and keep your head on straight.



GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

Everything is on the line and you are living through the definition of what happens when we put our money where our mouth is. Anyone else would be nervous, but for some reason you're as cool as a cucumber. I am pretty sure this has something to do with the fact that you have remained in integrity, relative to your purpose and in all of your relationships. Those who would doubt or seek to undermine you are on the wrong end of the stick. It'll take a couple of weeks for the truth to rise to the surface. Most people aren't willing to face it so when it does, be prepared for anything.



CANCER: June 21 – July 20

What you take to be a bout of depression has more to do with the idea that a lot of old stuff is getting triggered. If people are asking you "What's wrong?," instead of getting stuck on the idea that something is wrong, it might be best to tell them that you're getting in touch with your soul issues, and down to the nitty-gritty of your life. On the other side of all of this there is sunlight. It's as if you are opening a portal to your true self. Embrace whatever comes up with an open heart and don't feel compelled to put on an act. You're about to find out what you're here for.



LEO: July 21 – August 20

Sitting here in limbo, if you thought you had it all figured out, if the truth be told, absolutely nothing is clear. Sure, you are doing your best to put a shine on things, but deep down inside you're questioning all of it. In your quieter moments, many of you are freaking out; the yoga and the affirmations are wearing thin. Calling up whatever it takes is not an intellectual thing. When life gets down to the bone, switching to the hard stuff requires more from us. You will come out of this in one piece, but between now and then you will come unglued more than once before it's over.



VIRGO: August 21 – Sept. 20

You know something is about to change but you're clueless as to what needs to happen. Part of you thought you could stay here forever, but staying here forever could prove lethal. Going back to what once was might work, but then again, we can never go back. As you stand on the abyss that separates the past from the future, what the rest of your life will involve demands an honest look at who you've become. It will do no good to try to redo your glory days. Get real about who you are now and come to terms with what it might mean to anchor your spirit in the real world.



LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

You wonder why the same old story keeps showing up in your relationships. Part of you was led to believe that sooner or later your ideal mate would walk in the door. After this last go-around you're hip to the fact that that is a lie. As you open your eyes to the realization that different versions of Mommy and Daddy keep showing up to help you beam in on what you never got as a child, slowly but surely you will see that you have to clear up the past before your love life will pan out. With this in mind, some honest self-reflection and a little soul-searching would seem to be in order.



SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20

Yes, you've got your hands full and hardly anyone to rely upon. As much as you would love to feel secure and confident, you're not as sure about yourself as you used to be. Keep in mind that nothing is ever as bad, or as hard, as it feels: It's how we think about our story that drives us crazy. This is one of those times when the ability to be philosophical about the up-ness and down-ness of life will make it easier to be OK with yourself. The fact of the matter is that it's all an illusion and it's often the case that the dark spots are where our light really begins to shine.



SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

It looks like you've got all the right stuff and everything under control. That may be true, but on so many levels you're walking on shaky ground. Nobody lives in a vacuum and the people in your life are going through too many changes for you to be too sure about anything. It's OK to feel secure about what you've created. What you need to be more flexible about is the idea that nothing is meant to stay on a single track forever. You would do well to consider the virtues of changing your tune, just enough to accommodate the alterations in the lives of those closest to you.



CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 – Jan. 20

At the point where we finally choose one path over another, it's normal for second thoughts to creep in and make us wonder if we're on the right one. It's OK to question things. Nothing is ever for sure. Based on who you are and what you know at the moment, you made the best possible decision. If at some point in time you change your mind about all of this, it's because what you don't know now will challenge you to go back on your word. Take it easy. Nothing is black and white and everything is subject to change. You will know what to do when the time comes.



AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20

Keeping your head above water is easier than usual. Whatever you've done to remain balanced has made room for you to consider things that mean more to you than the daily grind. It has also given you time to think about old bones, things that had to be shoved under the rug a long time ago. It's easier for you to detach than it is for you to dive in and get to the bottom of things. In fact, detachment is what has saved you from levels of intensity that were too much to bear. As time goes on, you may find that true salvation involves reckoning with the hard stuff, little by little.



PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

There aren't enough hours in the day. Getting it all done on time has got you chasing your tail. At this point it would be a blessing if something came along to take the edge off. As much as you've got tons of support and everything you need to take care of yourself, when we're spread too thin it's easy to lose it. There is pressure from others and/or from afar, testing your patience and raising your blood pressure. Be prepared for a bit of magic to intervene from out of the blue to lighten your load, and remind you that it does no good to get too worked up over things.
