ARIES: March 21 – April 20

If things have bitten the dust, I would not be surprised. Life is less about what happens and more about how you respond to it. If the castle is crumbling it was either made of sand, or it has less to do with who you are than you thought it did. Others are still trying to make up their mind. To have too much invested in which way they go is a pitfall. At this point everything rides on your ability to operate from a truthful place. Don't neglect this. Any lies that have followed you in from the past will infect your life with "stuff" that could turn your present state of affairs sour.

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

It's hard to zero in on one thing with you; everything has been shifting wildly. The saying goes that when one thing changes, everything changes — and you are living proof of that now. Sooner than you think, there will be opportunities to go here and go there, or to get on the bandwagon with other people and their projects. It's totally fine to be off and running, but the temptation to jump on the first thing that comes along needs to be tempered with a good dose of caution. All that glitters is not gold and you'd be wise to check everyone's credentials before you commit to anything.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

You've been running the show for people who are too scattered to handle themselves. Staying on top of things gets complicated when you have to do everyone's thinking for them. While your motives are pure, there's an outside chance that people who don't have what it takes to stand on their own are taking advantage of you. Look closely at this. Over time you could wind up getting totally used, and become very bitter about the fact that you gave way too much to the wrong people. Turn on the discernment switch. It's no crime to "Just say no" when situations call for it.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20

It's hard to say how things are working out. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to the fact that you're still here. The old prescriptions for success stopped applying to you maybe, five or six years ago. As events conspire to reveal more of the truth to you, your decisions will have to reflect a willingness to let go of pretty much everything. Don't interpret this to be a bad thing. In the midst of a total internal and external overhaul, it would make no sense at all to get hung up clinging to anything. Don't worry about how others respond — they don't have to live your life.

LEO: July 21 – Aug. 20

You can do this. On some level you have already figured that out and are waiting for the dream to materialize. Keep a lid on the need to force things. What happens next will require your faith to be grounded in that gut-level place that "knows" you've got it made and no longer need to question it. The desire to proceed is strong. Your will is even stronger. Try to understand that you are subject to the law of time. It will be at least one more month before you will see the fruits of your labors. Be patient, and remain humble in the face of forces that are bigger than you are.

VIRGO: Aug. 21 – Sept. 20

Why everyone seems to be having such a problem with you is a good question. Doing your best to placate them, or win their approval won't get you too far. If you could be objective to this you would see that whoever's giving you a hard time is actually threatened by your abilities, and upset about the fact that you're making them look bad. There is nothing you can do to tone it down just so they can feel better about themselves, and no way to make yourself less capable. Knowing how to outshine everyone in sight comes down to letting some of that light shine on them.

LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

The circus is getting more, or less, interesting, depending on how you look at things. In some cases, it's kind of like watching a train wreck, and you are starting to wonder why you're glued to this scene. For others, I get the feeling you have just woken up to the fact that you bet on the wrong horse and you wish you could get off this pony in midstream. Between that, and matters of the heart that have you wishing you weren't so gullible, it comes down to finding a way to return to integrity, one way or another. This may require bold moves on your part. Be prepared.

SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20

You guys have your hands full. The business of keeping your act together has been deeply troubled by the fact that your inner child has been on a rampage for at least two months. All kinds of energy is turning up the volume on feelings that you thought you had under control. If the adult in you is feeling fat and sassy, the subterranean response is less sure of itself. Putting on a happy face may get you through the day but what gets you through the night stopped working for you two or three months ago. Coming to terms with the inner piece is never easy but it's time to go there.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

You aren't sure about anything right now. In the depths of confusion, the question of where to go from here poses problems. On the one hand you can keep chasing the same old thing, but winding up in the same old place is all that will get you. At this point you are well aware that going down that road isn't going to work because too much has changed. There are other options. The deeper part of you is reluctant to pursue them because the fear of what is unknown is overriding the desire to break free. It's time to move mountains, or risk being buried by the past.

CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 - Jan. 20

It's been a long haul. Here you sit, wondering if things are finally ready to turn around. Either that or you're sitting on the cusp of failure. At the point where life is on the line, how we handle it is more important than whether things go the way we think they ought to. You are in good shape if you are clear enough to be prepared for anything. This means that what you are hoping for is just about to pop and all you have to do is show up. If you are stuck on the idea that all things come to those who wait, guess again. This is one of those times when a little extra effort is required.

AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20

It's a good thing you have an easy time and can make the most of whatever happens when everyone else has had their fill. This endless supply of energy is in a supercharged state that will allow you to carry on no matter what. Don't fret about whether you've got what it takes. You've proven yourself in the past. Lots of things are up in the air. For the next few weeks it would be great if you could let them idle and retreat to a place where your inner resources feed your outer life. PS: "Re-sourcing" things means that it's time to co-opt your energy to nurture the one who has to source it.

PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

More than one flock of chickens is coming home to roost. The fact that it has taken this long to be able to put two-and-two together is blowing your mind. After all this time the truth about why certain choices were made is rising to the surface. In the midst of your newfound awareness, it's beginning to dawn on you that some tough choices have to be made. The gap between what others expect and the need to be who you are comes down to holding your ground or realizing that you owe them your life. Is it time to pay the piper? Mull it over thoroughly before you stay or go.
