Horoscopes (June 28- July 4) 

ARIES (March 21- April 20):

The future is wide open. Up until now that has been just a concept. Now that you know more about how things go, you see that it's time to be on your way. Just for now, your best bet will be to get your bearings and sit tight. It will take about nine more months before the latest clue to what's next will show its face. I see opportunities to work with experts and a chance to travel, study, or teach. Between now and then stoke your visions with things that matter to you, and don't let your fears or the misgivings of your inner child keep you from making this happen.

TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):

You know enough about how things work to keep good tabs on yourself. If there are amends to be made, don't hesitate to make them. Others are too proud, or too stuck, or too afraid to come around. Life has reached a point where things are either going to come together exactly as you wish, or you will have to switch to Plan B. In some cases it may be time to uproot yourself and move to a new locale. No matter who you are, you would do well to tidy up your accounts and attend to any loose ends that could easily get tangled and keep things from coming to fruition.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

Whatever's left of you is being called to support those closest to you. With very little left in the form of energy, finding ways to restore your soul is what matters right now. You're beginning to see that the desire to help has to walk a thin line, in light of the fact that everyone wants a piece of you. There is something satisfying about being the answer to everyone's prayers, but at this point, your own prayers will wind up in the toilet if you keep it up. When enough is enough you will need to summon the courage to say no and mean it in the face of multiple demands.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

Those closest to you think they know what you need. Sometimes you think they might have the right idea, because your mind isn't as clear as you think it is, and your heart isn't sure about anything. For the time being all you have to do is stay put. Things will come together better if you hang out long enough to get in touch with where this is going. Everything is about to meet with challenges that will require a steady, confidant hand. Stabilizing your energy and making things clear on every possible level will support your goals and get your relationships back on track.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

After all of this you're wondering if it's worth it to keep nursing a situation that has "leave it alone" written all over it. If persistence pays off, you haven't seen much reward for your effort. Even if you're feeling appreciated, whoever's telling you whatever you want to hear hasn't offered anything concrete to show you how much they care. Without it you get the sense that you're being used. As the next few weeks unfold, take a good look at what you're getting out of this because it looks like you're fed up and are just beginning to realize that it's time to let go.

VIRGo (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

You're still heavily stuck on something that will not release you from its grasp. Letting things go isn't as easy as it looks. Your mind is totally OK with releasing all of this, but your heart keeps running back for more. Don't make it harder by being self-critical; this stuff isn't easy for any of us. Time heals, and so does the idea that we never know what we need. On another note, I see plenty of evidence that work is where it's at for you. If your relationships and your personal life are going to be harmonious, everything needs to revolve around streamlining your work routine.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

This is all new to you. It's a good thing life has taught you a few things. Now that you're here, give yourself plenty of room to make your situation better. There are rumors that you are less than happy with the way other people are treating you. In some cases, it's kind of like, "what did you expect?" and in others it's not your problem. Getting around this will take every ounce of diplomacy that you've got. It could even be time for the "iron hand in the velvet glove" for anyone who thinks you're a pushover, or too wimpy to stand up to their need to hold you down.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

You'll need the wisdom of Solomon to figure this one out. Close ties make it hard to be objective. As your staunchest allies tell you it's time to make a move, the thought that you might hurt someone by leaving everything behind makes you doubt yourself. Sifting through the feelings you are 100 percent sure that there's another way to go about things. And you are beginning to understand that your spirit has a life of its own. The need to shift gears and move on is the spirit's call to greatness. Don't allow lesser mortals to convince you that you need to stay put.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

Balancing things is less about going up and down than it is about finding your center. You bring more to this situation than anyone in it. If you are thinking in terms of balance, you might start by leveling off with the need to overdo everything. And if this has anything to do with finding your center, do you know where it lies? It doesn't matter which mast you decide to tie yourself to, the road ahead is opening up, but there is no guarantee that it will be paved with gold, or love, or whatever it is that you're shooting for. Like I said; find your center. It knows what you want.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

Nobody knows how much you need to make everything right. Your whole life testifies to this. When things are less than perfect you go crazy wondering where you messed up. Sometimes life takes us away from our best laid plans, not to make us wrong or punish us for our mistakes, but to show us how to mend things. In the process something new is born, and it is what comes out of that that gets poured into the plan, or the dream, or the creation. Before you can continue with the heart of this vision you need to come down from the clouds and get real about a few things.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):

After a deep breath you have a clear sense of what it takes to keep you centered and happy. Months of pressure and stress have given way to a feeling of acceptance and surrender. With this much peace to still your heart, the things that really matter have boiled down to what's left. As the weight of life recedes, you're coming to a deeper place. Reconfiguring your options is bound to be part of this. Others don't necessarily have to understand what you're going through. You are finding your way to another shore — those closest to you will follow you anywhere.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):

You have come a long way. The business of finding yourself has taken you down a million different roads. As past experience wells up to show you where things are at, you're starting to wonder if it's time to go back. Reclaiming things that were meant to be left by the wayside may not be the best idea. On the other hand, there could be good reasons to get back in the saddle. The answer isn't the same for all of you. One thing is for sure — your intuition has already informed you with the truth. Trust it and let that insight show you whether it's time to stay or go.
