ARIES (March 21-April 20): The energy level and the overall vibe feel good enough to make you want to keep this up. Part of you is amazed, and the other part of you is saying it’s safe to surrender to the thought that you did the right thing. Getting used to a whole new way of living, and being in a place where your internal resources have had to come to the fore, you’re opening up in ways that are unique to you. Be sensitive to the need to take your time and be smart enough to avoid distractions. At a time when everything in your reality is re-forming, the last thing you need is to lose your way.
TAURUS (April 21-May 20): Your thoughts keep turning to things that have yet to be resolved. It’s interesting how all of a sudden you’re obsessed with making amends, or with going back to the past to sweep the dust off your heart. It’s OK to be soft enough to know that these things need to be handled. If you’re struggling with how to go about it, there’s an opening that will allow you to find a solution that will put everything to rest. For many of you, the same influence could easily revive things that were buried ages ago. If that’s how it plays out, be prepared for a wild and enlightening ride.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s hard to know why you feel the way you do; only you know what this is all about. The only caution you need to observe is the one that says “keep it to yourself.” Yes, dear; it’s your turn to let your hair down and allow yourself to look at how you feel. It might also be time to stop overgiving — because you’re just about tapped out and in need of a transfusion. In situations like this, it’s a good idea to cleanse the soul with whatever it takes to soothe it, and then proceed to re-engage with people and things in a way that makes it as beneficial to you as it is to them.
CANCER (June 21-July 20): You’ve been using avoidance strategies to cope with a situation that isn’t ready to change. You might want to ask yourself why it’s so hard to face people and things head-on. It’s no secret that you have too much invested to take any kind of risk. At the same time, it’s one of those “Damned if you do and damned if you don’t” scenarios that doesn’t boil down to black-and-white. If you were a kid, you could flip a coin. As an adult, it’s about getting to the place where the need to postpone the inevitable gets replaced by the realization that you have nothing to lose.
LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): You don’t know what’s going on. It’s tough trying to figure out what to do next when there are too many variables that have yet to make themselves known. Getting whacked by changes that have challenged even you — the one who can handle anything — is giving you a great lesson in how crazy things get when there’s a total absence of transparency. Before you can move on to the next thing, you’ve got to sit more than one person down and hear the whole story. The rest of the puzzle will fill itself out the minute others decide to open up and be straight with you.
VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): You’re not quite sure if this is what you had in mind. It’s like you’re finally where you’ve always wanted to be and there’s nothing to do; either that or there’s nothing to it. Exactly how this translates to your particular situation I cannot say — but if you find yourself feeling disillusioned, the fact that the road to enlightenment is paved with it suggests that something is about to open up. Be prepared to flex your ability to adapt and stop needing to have a plan. The more you line up with the thought that anything goes, the sooner things will begin to expand.
LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): If you thought this was going to be all sweetness and light, you’ve learned a thing or two. Going deeper into things has shown you how dark life can get when you really look at what motivates people to do what they do. If you’ve been walking on the edge of the knife, know that it’s a double-edged sword; whoever’s on the other side of the story has just as much to lose as you do. Instead of obsessing about where this is heading, stay alert to your situation and hold enough faith to believe in what you know to be true, because it’s the truth that will come out in this situation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): You’ve got to calm down and let life unravel things that are too much to wrap your mind around. Too many choices, cooks, or variables have stirred up a maelstrom of simultaneous, multiple changes that won’t settle down for quite a while. If you’re hassling yourself for not knowing what to do, anyone in your position would be totally flummoxed. This is why you need to chill out and get calm enough to move in and out of these complexities without adding the weight of your own anxieties to the pile. If you can kung fu your way through this, you’ll be fine.
SAGITTARIUS: (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): You can’t be sure about anything right now. There are moments when you wonder if you’re losing it, or if this is just a bout of temporary insanity. The question of what to do next has you wishing you weren’t so responsible. Anyone who knows enough to look at things from a different angle will help you through this. Your closest ties won’t be half as supportive because they need you too much. You’re in the midst of a huge change. What happens from here on out depends on you getting clear about what it will take to live with yourself when the fog lifts.
CAPRICORN: (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): I wish I knew how to help you. This is one of those times when you can’t listen to anyone’s advice but your own. So much of what’s happening has no clear-cut solution. Complications have arisen that make it seem as if you need to revamp some of your decisions. This would feel a whole lot better if you hadn’t put so much stock in other people and their credibility. If it’s hard to face this, it’s only because your disappointment in others has knocked the pins out from under the belief that they had any concern for you. It could be worse. Snap out of it and move on.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): You over-worry about how things are going to work out. Recent changes are so new, you haven’t gotten your bearings. Money is an issue, but it would be less of an issue if you could stay on top of your scarcity trips. The tide may be out, but it’s bound to come back in, so start priming the pump by spending a few bucks on whatever it takes to further your best interests. If you’ve settled in enough to meditate on what’s next, you know that it will be born out of what’s going on right now. Stay true to yourself and remember that life doesn’t have to be as hard as you make it.
PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): You’ll be able to keep riding this wave if you’re willing to change a few things. So far you’ve played it safe with a conventional approach — but at a time when life is this unpredictable, none of us can afford to stick to a program that has no relevance to the way things are now. Whether you know it or not, everything you’ve lined up is getting ready to unfold in a different way. If anything, you need to open your mind to the idea of a new pattern for living and lose the belief that your security depends on anything but what your higher power calls you to do.
