ARIES (March 21-April 20): Drumming your fingers on the table won't get this to happen any sooner. It's hilarious the way you get when it's your turn to wait. So what if you want this more than anything? There is more to it than meets the eye. These issues go back to day one. Stop wondering what it will take for others to make a move, or get in touch, and pay attention to the way you sabotage the possibility. If you give what's going on right now a little more thought, it'll show you that your goals have to be centered in something authentic before your dreams bear any resemblance to what's in your heart.
TAURUS (April 21-May 20): Old issues have resurfaced to give you a chance to see how smart you really are, and/or, whether or not you're really over this. You are in the middle of a huge turnaround that will go well, or leave you hanging, depending on the extent to which your motives are in alignment with what your spirit is aiming for. Up until now you've been going full bore, with the idea that nothing can stop you. That this might be open to question has recently arisen. Lift your head up long enough to see where you're going and be acutely aware of your weaknesses and vulnerabilities.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You've been out of the box long enough to know that you can't go back. If it's hard to know what to do next, or where to take it from here, there isn't any road map for the place you're about to go to. For better or worse, the course you steer will open the way to exactly what you need in this moment. You know better than anyone that what we need doesn't always look like what we want, but you're smart enough to take the good with the bad and make the most of every lesson. God knows how things will unravel. They will turn out for the best if you do this one by heart.
CANCER (June 21-July 20): Mother Teresa and you would make great pals. The greater part of your nature is giving so much of you away to people and things, it would be great if you could haul back and keep an eye on where you'll wind up if you aren't careful. The need to draw the line — with other people, as well as in your relationship to the work that you do, and/or to the things that suck up your life force all of the time — can't be underscored strongly enough. You can't keep this up. Remembering what nourishes your spirit may take time. Start with a PB&J and a glass of milk, and go from there!
LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): You wish you had a crystal ball now. Praying, and hoping for the best, you realize that so many things are out of your hands. This is one of those moments when it is an inside job. No amount of maneuvering will work. The god's honest truth is what's about to be wrenched from this situation and all you can do is let go of the reins and watch it unfold. Under all of this what prevails in the end will show you what's real. If you are concerned about how these changes will impact those who are too young to know better, trust me: their higher self will see them through
VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): You are so fed up with people. As much as I totally get it, the mark of a spiritually evolved being lies in their ability to tolerate the weaknesses of others. Those close to you have required more tolerance than usual. Sure it would be "legal" to let them have it, but there's no way you can show other people their blind spots. Do what you can to see that it has taken them forever to get this messed up, and go about your business. Let stuff like this be a lesson in how not to be and have compassion for those whose choices made it easy for them to get lost on the path to awareness.
LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): What others have to say about your situation would seem to require you to fortify yourself and buckle down but, no: When you're caught between a rock and a hard place you have no choice but to become like water. You may think there are only two choices, but there is another way out. What's going on right now will require you to let huge considerations go, just long enough for you to see that you're up for a radical change. To hell with whatever you think you're doing. It's time to get real enough to see where things went off the rails and start all over again.
SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): Your next move depends on how long it takes for everyone to realize that the greater good won't be served if they keep turning you into the bad guy: Thank god all this drama hasn't brought you down. Now that people are clear about your worth, let's hope they continue to keep the light on. Your security issues are a bit frayed. Up until now this would give you cause to worry. Of late, not only have you realized that worry is one of the seven deadly sins, you have also woken up to the fact that when you're on your chosen path, the cash inevitably comes from wherever it is now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): You've been at this for so long you lost track of why you're here. Try rewinding back to the point where you made the decision to do X, Y, or Z. The last thing you need is to be stuck. This restlessness could be the result of what happens when we stay too long, or get beholden to what we think others expect from us. Your life needs to look like a vision quest for you to be happy. Don't settle for anything less. If breaking out requires you to revamp your contracts with others, trust the fact that your choices and any changes you decide to make will be good for both of you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): You keep holding steady in a situation that has tested every ounce of your being. The need to continue to put out, and be strong will be there for a while. As to whether or not anything is going to look the way you want it to, I can't answer that question. There may be a big difference between what you want and what you need. At times like these the solutions don't arrive until we are truly ready to hand it over to god. The minute you stop with the need to maintain your position and stay on top of it all, the waters of the Red Sea will part and life will set you free.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): The fog has lifted just enough for you to have a clearer sense of who you are. You just might even be ready to take some action based on what you've seen about yourself lately. Others are still in the same place, or operating out of the same level of dysfunction that they have displayed in the past. As you begin to shed more light on yourself you might start to wonder about what you're doing here. This is a defining moment. The standard tricks stopped working for you back in high school. Don't let cultural mores interfere with your choices, and don't be afraid to change.
PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): So what did you think would happen? How could you not foresee what's in front of you now? It's either rose colored glasses or total obliviousness that has you playing both ends to the middle with people who can't get real enough to be straight with you. Some of you are getting played — others are knee deep in things that you have absolutely no choice about, and they consume all your attention. In the midst of this, your needs are less of an issue than the idea that the only way out will require lots of pretense, and/or huge levels of codependence until the seasons change.
