ARIES: March 21 – April 20

Everything is getting rearranged. You are clear that there's no sense cementing your plans when life is playing "52-Pick-Up." As you navigate within high levels of uncertainty, you know enough to "wait and see." Others are in the same boat. If whatever you foresee hinges on their actions, there are secondary issues to consider. Times like this bring up the need to release our attachments, and to be acutely aware of the fact that nothing is permanent. This may impact your relationships in unexpected ways. If so, know enough to give everyone space to follow their bliss.

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

Things are working out and it's blowing your mind! This is what happens when we shake the dust off our illusions and get real about what we really want. Little did you know that it would be OK to raise your hand and say, "Could we start all over again?" By the time you read this, you will be well on your way to whatever's next. From there? Who knows? The beauty in all of this lies in the fact that you knew there had to be more to life than whatever you had settled into. From here on out, as long as you keep your heart open and keep it real, the truth will keep setting you free.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

Trying to unravel the webs of intrigue that have cropped up lately is testing all of your skills to the max. How things got this complicated will be less of a mystery once you dial back to the point where the first lie got told. It could be that others were dishonest with you. It could also be that in a moment of weakness you lied to yourself. In the former case, you saw what you wanted to see. In the latter case, you pulled the wool over your eyes. Either way, things have reached the point where it's time to confront the truth and break free long enough to pick up the pieces and move on.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20

You've come a long way. Making it through the gauntlet has been easy or hard, depending on the extent to which you've been ready to face the music. In some cases, the deeper part of you has seen the need to make drastic changes and is currently basking in the light of a whole new set of circumstances, with endless possibilities in sight. In many ways, you have been reborn. Those of you who have had a harder time letting go of the past have fallen asleep next to your illusions. Waking up is hard to do. Go easy on yourself. It takes time to release our fears and attachments.

LEO: July 21 – August 20

Don't take anything for granted. You have so much to be grateful for. Understanding this is a huge part of your process right now. The ones who have stood by you could have easily walked off the set. If you are too blind to acknowledge the extent to which you would be nowhere without them, it's time to open your eyes. On other fronts, you have too many gifts to let the line of least resistance keep dragging you down. Focus on raising your vibration, stop expecting others to be anything but who they are, and thank God that they still love you no matter what.

VIRGO: Aug. 21 – Sept. 20

It's clear that radical moves are in order. You have been aware of this for quite some time. As the dawn breaks, old response mechanisms instruct you to stay where you are. The belief that this is the right thing to do competes with the idea that you didn't come here to perpetuate outworn structures; you are one of the ones who came here to move beyond them. Many of you will have to rearrange your thinking in order to get past your fears. It comes down to accepting the need for change and leaping into the Void. Rattling other people's cages will be part of the deal.

LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

You're at a tipping point. Relative to the rest of your life, this is where things get deep. If that sounds strange, it's because no one told us that we live out multiple versions of ourselves before the jig is up. You've already figured a lot of things out, but what's on tap at this point comes with a need to drop everything and choose to wake up, or not. If your current affairs appear to be breaking down, it's because your soul is making way for what's next. Keep your eyes peeled. On the other side of the next six months, everything will get shaken and stirred — for better, or worse.

SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20

Something has shifted. A few months ago you were chewing your fingernails. Many of you were wondering what went wrong. Some of you were ready to snap. Now that the fog has lifted, you're back in the saddle, optimistic about the fact that the light has returned to your life. Everything ebbs and flows. The next phase of your journey is bound to be full of hope that will give birth to changes that look a lot different than whatever you had in mind. You've entered the slipstream. The cardinal rule in this neck of the woods is go with the flow and be open to anything.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

You wish you could smooth things out and make everything OK for other people. On the surface this would seem to be the right thing to do. The thing is, you have nothing to say about anyone's karma but your own. And what you think is what it will take to fix up someone else's situation may have nothing to do with what they need. All our best intentions can get lost if our efforts to set things right deprive others of valuable life lessons. Focus on your own stuff, and be conscious enough to let go and let God when it comes to messing in the sandbox of other people's lives.

CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 – Jan. 20

Baby steps, my dear! Don't get overwhelmed trying to handle everything all at once. Between your money issues and the fact that you seem to be scattered in more than a few places, you can only take one thing at a time. Problems dealing openly and honestly with other people is also a theme. Between the need to tread lightly, and the sense that certain situations demand a high level of pretense, the fact that you're walking on eggshells could wind up driving you nuts. You keep wondering when things will let up. With Pluto and Saturn all over your Sun, it'll be a while.

AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20

Things are settling in, in ways that are giving you more room to breathe. Some of you are off on a vision quest. Changing the scenery has opened the space for you to change your tune. Things that were cramping your style a month ago have given way to a whole new attitude; make the most of this. Old stories and memories are always there in the background. It's that way for all of us. As you lighten up enough to expand your feelings about everything else, you will find that whatever haunts you is less painful than ever. Seen in a new light, it may be easier to forgive and forget.

PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

It's all coming together. Recent wake-up calls have opened your eyes to the fact that whoever you put your trust in has taken you for a ride. If you've been oblivious to all of this, it's because you're an idealist who wouldn't dream of using others or taking advantage of them. As the dawn breaks on the extent of the damage, you are clear that this will never happen again. Others have shown up to help you plow through the wreckage. They may very well have come to the rescue, but it's too soon to tell. Cross your fingers and give them plenty of rope to either prove, or hang themselves.
