Horoscopes: June 14-20) 

ARIES (March 21- April 20):

You aren't sure that you can do this because you've never had the chance to take your life this far. Up until this moment it didn't matter how things went. Now all of a sudden the whole show depends on whether or not you're ready to step out of the box. Others may seem like they aren't up for going wherever you want to go; that may or may not be true, so don't presume, and don't make things more complicated by assuming that they don't need this as much as you do. The need to be strong and the ability to hold true to what's right for you can't be overemphasized.

TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):

You need to get your bearings before you can be clear enough to make your next move. The focus is on work, but there are other themes running parallel to the idea that your responsibilities are your saving grace right now. As for the rest of it, "ay-yi-yi"! Between the exes and the pressures that the past has left in its wake, you keep mulling over your choices and wondering why life is this intense. The thoughts that keep you awake relate to "Who did what to who?" Others are just as hung up on this as you are. Stay true to yourself. It's all you can do.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

Nobody can help you figure out how to keep this balanced. Whatever lies up on the road ahead, you're the one who is in charge of that issue. Don't feel too overwhelmed; you of all people have been through enough to handle pretty much anything. When it comes to finding yourself in the midst of the needs and concerns of others there is nothing you can do but keep the focus on your own truth. You may be called to go a little further afield with people, places, and things than you've been in a long time. This is an initiation. Let absence and distance teach you your lessons.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

Nobody can tell you what to do. At this point, even if they wish they could there's no way you can give sway to anyone's authority but your own. There are a lot of reasons for this but none of them are going to hold up if you are unwilling to look at what never fails to happen every time you get this righteous. Whatever you're trying to defend or protect would be better served if you would loosen up, or soften up just enough to see that you don't know everything. Others are there for you. If you can open up to the thought that they are right about things, it will serve you both.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

If others could be there for you, or come up with the words to tell you how sorry they are, they would do it in a heartbeat. When you are willing and able to hear it there will be silence in heaven for a good 30 minutes. Part of what you perceive to be a problem relates to the way you've decided things went. All of this is understandable. What you have not yet been able to see is the way it went for others. Now that everyone's old enough to know better, maybe it's time to bury the hatchet, or at least begin to explore forgiveness and its place in the scheme of things.

VIRGo (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

Your next opportunity will come with challenges that call you to be super-sensitive to the needs of others. Thank God the ability to empathize is your strong suit. If you can zoom in and choose your battles before they heat up you'll save yourself tons of trouble in the long run. Youthful egos and arrogant types who loan themselves more credit than they deserve will move you to wonder what makes people think they have a clue. Don't get waylaid by their folly; use it to remind yourself that real talent speaks for itself and let what happens next prove this to be true.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

You are operating under laws of serendipity and synchronicity that don't hit it off with the part of you that thinks it knows what's going on. You can go either way when it comes to these things. The surety that makes it possible for you to step into any situation with absolutely no fear is wondering if you've forgotten how to go for it. Trust issues, along with all the things that have gotten shaken and stirred in the last few years, are forcing you to open up to the last thing you expected ­— or at least get you to the place that realizes that the only way to win is to surrender.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

The best laid plans have come to a place where you are ready to give it up and change the channel. The idea that you don't have enough of what it takes to keep this going comes from knowing that you wound up in this situation because somebody else wanted it. Lots of "stuff" is stirring up to obscure the path. At times like this the only thing you can trust is the inner voice, the one that knows who you're kidding. What you hear from that neck of the woods is going to tell you things that you might not want to hear. Weighing your options is where it's at right now.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

How to proceed is the question. It's not like you don't know what you're doing, but the story has changed, or the act of bridging the gap between one thing and another isn't what you thought it would be. Anything that feels like dead weight needs to go. Before you can get this to roll you've got to drop all the bullshit and return to integrity. In situations like this it always comes down to: "OK; where am I coming from, what is the Truth, and where do we go from here?" Think twice about the fact that you won't be able to answer any of those questions with the same old thing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

The way things are going you could easily take off like a rocket. Lots of super supportive energy is there for those of you who are ready to get over yourselves and let go. For many, the act of moving on up will feel gut-wrenching, or stressful enough to make you feel like your life depends upon hanging on as tight as you can. It's not my job to tell you how to approach things; we all have good reasons for hanging on or letting go. Part of me wishes I had the right to tell you that it's safe to surrender and open your life to reflect the faith and trust that you hold in it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):

You have all kinds of stuff coming up. It's interesting that many of you still feel like you have to hide your light under a bushel. The past has made it seem as if you don't have the right to do, or be, or have whatever you want, when the exact opposite is true. Don't worry too much about what'll happen when you decide to let those issues slide. This is no time to shy away from your purpose. It's one thing to make things all about you, but you came here to shine, and in your case the light that you carry is meant to be held so that others can locate themselves in the darkness.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):

You have mundane concerns that are testing your ability to put your money where your mouth is. When it gets like this you wish you could spin straw into gold. Worry and fear have a tendency to feed on themselves. Repetitious thoughts act to multiply the angst, and because thoughts are things, Boom — there you sit perpetuating the problem. The trick to creating our own reality lies in being able to catch ourselves before we weave too many issues into being. Learning how to be at ease with the thought that you really are supported by the Universe is where it's at this week.
