Horoscopes (May 13 - 19) 

ARIES (March 21-April 20): There is so much going on, let's hope you are in the mood to deal with it. If you could see your life from a bird's eye view, you would know that no matter how things look at the moment, everything is on the increase and waiting to pop. Nevertheless, the need to remain constant is imperative. Your attention to the task at hand is where it's at. Nothing will move or improve until you are willing to keep at it with all your heart and soul. Others are 100 percent there for you. Whether you know it or not you have tons of support. Just keep the light on and remain vigilant.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20): All kinds of stuff needs to go. This is one of the milestones where a trap door opens up and whatever has been outgrown starts to fall into it. If you're one of those people who doesn't know when to let go, you are probably having a tough time. And many of you are in situations where you know it's time to quit, but your money trips outweigh the concept that nothing good comes out of anything when the joy is gone. You've got some decisions to make. If you know what it means to actually walk your talk you will figure this out and rejuvenate your life in no time.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You guys need to slow down and take five minutes to notice how awesome things are when every second isn't full of too much going on. At the moment you are deeply immersed in something that would work out a whole lot better if you were less distracted by too much random BS. If there are concerns about your health, take a more holistic approach. Things will improve as soon as you realize that the spiritual component matters as much as the physical issue. Keep the light on, and treat yourself to as much peace and quiet as it takes to remember that you are not a machine.

CANCER (June 21-July 20): You can't expect people to wake up before their time, and there's nothing you can do to change the way they see things. That being the case, you are beginning to see that you're the one that has to make a few adjustments. If you can put the internal stuff into place, your perspective on all of this will lighten up. On other fronts it looks like it's time to review your entire life. The last few months have put you through the ringer and whatever that has done, it has shown you that you are worth more than this. Once you get behind that concept the next stretch will take you places.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): Oops! I see some systematic BS. There's no need to obsess about how it's going to go, but at the moment you're a little freaked. Aspects from other planets are zapping this whole situation with loopholes and lucky breaks that will send whatever the problem is right up in smoke. Your work situation is endless, and your love life is floating on the premise that all you need is love — even though at this point a little cash would help. Be mindful of what it takes to keep your heart open and use the fire that lives there to heat up enough joy to attract only goodness into your life.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): You go nuts try ing to keep all your ducks in a row. If it makes you happy, that's your business but don't go laying your control trips on everybody else. You get wound up tighter than a Swiss watch over things that could easily slide. Yes, for sure, this is one of those times when your survival seems to rely on staying on top of things — but with you, the over-organized thing is a bit psycho. The last few months have given you more than one reason to want to distract yourself with this and that, but trust me, you will lose it if you don't look at what's really going on inside.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): You have em barkedon a path from which there appears to be no turning back. Before you head any further down that road, do yourself a big favor and check in with your motives. Whatever has driven you to make this choice needs to be clean and clear. As the next few weeks unfold your inner voice will be making comments, and reminding you of what happened the last time you did this. Pay close attention and keep in mind the relationship area is always the cross on which you get nailed. This time it could be different; but, for safety's sake, take one last look.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): The next week or so will see you trying to clear up a lot of loose ends. Some of them are connected to your everyday life, others are tied up with the remains of the emotional baggage that is still sitting on the carousel of your past. If you balk at the thought of dredging up all the water that's gone under the bridge in the last few years, know this — it's bound to come to the surface sooner or later and the longer you wait, the harder it will be to come to terms with it. Your work situation is intense. Don't let all of that outweigh the things that really matter to you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): The story keeps getting more convoluted by the minute. Being someone who loves to have a lot of stuff going on, this isn't as hard on you as it would be for the rest of us. If there is an issue it's about the fact that so much is slipping through the cracks, you are losing track of the details. As we all know, the devil is in the details. Don't be averse to putting the brakes on the idea that you can ignore all that stuff. Coming back to center, and finding a way to stay abreast of what is out of control will require you to haul back and beam in on what's been hiding in your blind spots.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): Your relationship issues have never mattered as much as they do now. What hasn't been working hasn't improved and you're hard pressed to know what to do about it. The usual cures have not made a dent, and all the self-help on the planet won't fix this. There are no simple solutions. As the relationship paradigm shifts all of us are being called to find ways to be together that actually work. If you're concerned about how to get the love and the life back into your love life, it comes down to rearranging the dynamics in your relationship so that both of you get to be free.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): Recent life and death experiences and events have made it totally clear that everything happens for a reason. No matter how things go, at the end of the day we learn that it's all perfect. At this point your lessons also include letting go of the need to cling to the issues of the past. That stuff keeps you from getting along in your daily life. Close others have no sense of where you're coming from — because their issues are as big as and perhaps equal and opposite to yours. Compassion and forgiveness hold the key to everything that's going on with you right now.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): Your life is at a crossroads. The desire for total freedom and autonomy competes with the reality of your situation. Breaking free will require more than you are willing to sacrifice, and at this point it might even be out of the question. Time and the actions of other people have a lot to say about how things will unfold, but you're going to come out on top of all of it in the end. Between now and then the deal seems to be about knowing more about other people's issues than they do. If you can do that, this milestone into something that allows you to have your cake and eat it too.
