ARIES: March 21 – April 20

Wondering if and when your ship will come in has you weighing your options. The security issue is huge. And what was supposed to come through is still stuck in limbo. With that in mind you are looking at patching things together until the time comes. There are a thousand and one reasons why it might be necessary to backpedal. Those of you who aren't waiting for the pot at the end of the rainbow could very well need to be eating your words, or taking back things that were said not too long ago, in order to clear up any doubts there might be about your integrity.

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

Recent mind blows have turned everything upside down. In some cases the tumult is a blessing and the changes that are being wrought have been a long time coming. Soon enough you will be better off than before. For others, it's hard to know what to say. It could be that your reputation is on the ropes. It's also possible that you've got hell to pay for things that until now you managed to keep well hidden. Whatever the story is, change is the operative word, and your ability to ride this wave, for better or worse, will either set you free or bring all of your chickens home to roost.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

Who said you had to have it all figured out? God knows what you expect from yourself, but given the fact that enlightenment is a long way off, it seems a bit strange that you think you're supposed to have all the answers. What I see is that you are on the right path. What you need to keep in mind is that this is just the beginning of things that will unfold over time. Your purpose is gestating inside the goals that you have currently set for yourself. Instead of assuming that you've found the answer, relax enough to see that you have to find yourself before it will come.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20

Your concept of what being in a relationship requires of you is being shaken and stirred by people and things that make you look at what it means to be yourself. There are inner and outer power struggles that have caught you between doing what's expected and being who you are. Surrounded by energies that make it impossible to express yourself freely, in the midst of it all, your primary issues are being called out as a means to help you revamp beliefs that stem from the idea that all love is conditional. Yes, it's time to rock the boat so don't be afraid to make a few waves.

LEO: July 21 – August 20

You've come through all of this with flying colors. At the same time, there is always that piece that is sure that the other shoe is bound to drop. As long as you don't sink into overconfidence you will be able to use this plateau of stability as a jumping-off place for things that are much more interesting than the "stuff" that was dragging you down a few months ago. I can see that you are ready to burst into a supernova, but it may be wise to be content with slow progress, in limited areas. Be mindful of the company you keep, and let baby steps lead you to keep up the good work.

VIRGO: Aug. 21 – Sept. 20

Keep doing what you're doing. Even if you're starting to wonder about the definition of insanity, in your case, the act of pouring your heart into the same old thing is about to be rewarded with things that will blow you away. They will come in the form of surprises that open your heart and show you that all of this has been worth it. The dreams that got lost along the way are due to walk back into your life and restore your faith in yourself. Between now and then, mind your own business, hold steady, keep the faith that has been there forever, and get ready for what is to come.

LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

In the midst of doing your best to hold things together, another part of you wants to fly away. And if it isn't about flying away, you are becoming deeply aware of the fact that there are reasons to live that transcend the business of what goes on from day to day. If your dreams are beholden to the needs of others, don't be discouraged. It looks to me like it will take a little time for them to wake up and smell the coffee. Don't waste your breath trying to persuade them. This is one of those times when it's best to lay low, and let everyone open their eyes, one day at a time.

SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20

On some level you are well aware that you have entered a whole new phase of your life. What you are less aware of is what to do about it, and a big part of you is clinging to the need to keep resuscitating the old story. When life asks us to join it in a game of 52-Pick-Up, all of the cards remain in the air until they hit the ground. You keep scrambling around trying to define yourself at a time when everything is open to question and there is no way of knowing who you are. That being said, take your hands off the wheel and let the part of you that is being reborn show you what's next.



click to enlarge sagittarius111111111111111111121111111111111-3-2-2.jpg

SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

You have everything hitting you at once, in a situation that has its roots in things that happened a long time ago. Your desire to fix things, or to get everyone to "see it your way," seems to make sense, until you realize that whatever's going on has to get unraveled inside you before anything is going to change. Part of you is aware enough of spiritual things to know what this means, but it's not about saying a few prayers, and blowing an affirmation or two on what's at issue. Your deepest "stuff" is up for review. If you are willing to look it in the eye you will be able to fix this mess.

CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 - Jan. 20

It might make sense to look at what you expect from yourself, and at what you expect from "life." These things go back to what "Daddy" or "Mommy" expected from you and they keep you from living in your heart. At the moment, what appear to be "life-and-death" situations are there to bring you to a place that allows you to whittle yourself down to the truth. To make it through all of this, stop looking at the drama, and look at what it's wringing out of you. You're closer to the bone than you've ever been and as hard as this feels, the difficulty is honing your soul to perfection.

AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20

After a long period of being stuck between a rock and a hard place, or in a situation where you had no room to breathe, you are sitting pretty wondering how you got this lucky. With tons of external pressure off your back, now you have time to look at what you would really like to be doing. At the moment, you are surrounded by a ton of spiritual support. This has inspired you to give back some of the goodness that has been raining down on you of late. The desire to help others is running hand in hand with the desire to take up something new and unfurl your creative gifts.

PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

Having just been hammered with a huge emotional jolt, or the after-effects of too much weight on your shoulders, you are rounding the bend, and coming out on the other side with a whole new reason for living. The sense of loss has been replaced with an open space that is ready to hold more of the world in your heart. With the weight on your shoulders gone, the feeling of freedom is enormous. At this point there is no need to keep licking your wounds, or keep whining about how hard things have been. You're off the hook, my friend. The future is wide open.
