ARIES: March 21 – April 20
If it all seems like you'd do better to cut your losses and move on, the fact that you are terminally impatient needs to be kept in mind. Hey, it could very well be time to let go of things that seemed like pie-in-the-sky, but you aren't there yet. Any forces that are currently working against you are there to test your integrity. They are also there to test your ability to see through veils of deceit and falsehood that seem to crop up whenever push comes to shove. You're known for your truthful and fearless qualities. Turn them on and use them to keep the flame alive.

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20
For too long you’ve done everyone’s thinking for them; at this point it may be OK to ease up and start thinking about yourself. Changes in the way things operate, along with a need to play watchdog for more than one person, place, or thing have shown you how much you’ve had it with the “leave it up to me” routine. This isn’t news to any of you, but for the first time in your life you understand that it is less important for you to be all things to all people than it is to be your own person. Now that your experiences have opened your eyes, maybe you can move on to what's next.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 20
The next few weeks look like they will take you over one last hurdle. After a long stretch of tests you’re just about ready to pop. Pressure restricts and tightens — but it also transforms us in the same way that the full weight of a bed of coal turns diamonds into light. There is light at the end of this tunnel. From here on out, all you have to do is show up and do whatever you’re called to do. Don’t worry too much about whether you’ve got what it takes to be the one who gets to succeed. If it’s already walking and talking, chances are it’ll carry you the rest of the way.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20
You are coming out from under the weight of things that have numbed you up until now. It's good that nature insulates us from what life does to overwhelm our defenses. Now that the heat is off you're beginning to see that you have neglected the bigger part of what makes you tick. As this thought sinks in, you see that it's time to reclaim yourself, or at least begin to recapture the things that got lost while you were holding up the world. Don't expect anything from yourself. Return to your own source and be still long enough to hear the sound of your heart, singing.

LEO: July 21 – August 20
You got through your most recent test with flying colors. A series of adjustments have been made and you have a stronger sense of what it's going to take to keep your head above water. These changes have opened portals of expression that need to be directed toward whatever you love. I don't care if you bake cookies or do brain surgery — it's important to be finding ways to put more faith in the dream than you do in your bank book. Let any sense of sadness or loss be replaced with the thought that you are just about out of the woods and the future is wide open.

VIRGO: August 21 – September 20
The stipulations that you place on how life has to look, cut you off from a huge chunk of what makes all of this worth it. You keep wishing you could change things that are just fine the way they are. Stretching your boundaries, when you aren't at home in your own skin is an impossible task. Hauling back, and bringing all of who you think you are to its lowest common denominator, or to the simplest possible thing, will show you that you'd do better to keep it true and simple than to keep trying to turn your reality into a monument to your perfection trips.

LIBRA: September 21 – October 20
You have gotten your bearings and are totally good with what's happening. Somehow or other you've managed to carve out a lot of dead wood and are in a new frame of mind. Thinking back on everything you've sacrificed, your losses don't amount to much next to the feeling of freedom that's got you going right now. Those close to you are open to whatever you need and they are ready to follow you wherever you go. It's up to you to remain clear about what you really want out of all of this, and to think seriously about expanding, and/or multiplying your options.

SCORPIO: October 21 – November 20
You come from a place of integrity. You have the highest intentions for whatever this situation involves. Be wary of giving too much away to people who aren't coming from the same place. This is your biggest pitfall right now. Relationship scenarios, possessive and non-possessive, need to be double checked to be sure everything remains balanced. You spend too much energy turning yourself into the one that people need. It limits your true expression, it weakens whoever's on the other end, and sets them up for disillusionment. Just be yourself. It'll work better.

SAGITTARIUS: November 21 – December 20
You're totally tapped out, wondering how you're going to pull it together. There is support, or there isn't; either way, with more than enough on your plate you wish you could find a piece of yourself, somewhere in all of it. At the end of the day it is the simple things that take us home and make it possible for us to live with the bullshit. Most of the time the remedy lives in the plants that need water and the cat on the windowsill. Sometimes all you have to do is light a candle to remind yourself of the spirit that lights up everything in your life from the inside out.

CAPRICORN: December 21 - January 20
You can get this to work if the desire for wholeness outweighs the need to conform to what is expected of you. This could mean a hundred things, depending on your situation. Underneath it all life is calling you to remain fully aware of the need to be yourself, and allow others to follow your lead. What's holding you back has a lot to do with the idea that you might lose something or someone if you move forward, and that doesn't have to be the case. Trust life and know that the universe is here to support everything you do. Keep it simple and remain sincere in your effort.
