ARIES (March 21- April 20):
Playing both ends to the middle will give you a chance to bide your time and see if you're really up for this. It's been somewhat complicated trying to figure out how to make things work and be able to live out your dream at the same time. From what I can see, what's coming around the bend will turn out to be exactly what you've been shooting for. If and when it comes to pass, the next phase of your journey will mark a whole new ballgame. There's no sense pretending that I know what form it will take. When the next miracle is about to pop, it's best to be ready for anything.
TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):
You had no idea what was going on in a situation that has forced you to rethink all of your choices. What you were 100 percent sure about has turned out to be a case of misguided idealism leading you to believe that you were with all the right people, on the right track. From this vantage point it might be hard to wrap your mind around the idea that you took a long ride down a bunny trail that had nothing to it. Waking up to the truth, and being able to call a spade a spade will go a long way to put you back on your feet and open up a whole bunch of better options.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20):
The weight of other people's opinions is making it hard to make your point. As intelligent as you are, talking will not do much at this stage of the game. If you want to be heard, those who refuse to listen will not pay attention until your actions speak louder than words. Questions as to whether people are willing to get off their high horse and admit that they're wrong have more to do with how conscious they are, and less to do with where you are at. Keep directing your energy toward what's real and true. Before too long, your wisdom and integrity will be hard to ignore.
CANCER (June 21-July 20):
The way things look, many of you are getting along just fine. If you've been willing to roll with things, and have already learned how to read the signs, you don't need any advice from me. Just as many of you are lost in space, dazed and confused, trying to figure out how you got here. It would be easy to tell you that all of the answers lie within; the problem lies in having the courage to go there. Mustering it up is half the battle. As long as you find a way to reconnect with your faith, within six months, in addition to a move, a whole new raft of possibilities will be on the menu.
LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):
You can't expect those who place too much importance on whatever the system has to offer to go along with you at this point. Value differences lie at the root of whatever the problem seems to be. If someone keeps expecting you to crack the whip and get real, on the flip side, you keep hoping that they will loosen up and figure out how to follow their bliss. This is one of those times when never-the-twain-shall-meet. If there's anything left between you, try to accept your differences and be smart enough to know that sometimes the best you can do is agree to disagree.
VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):
Caught between the past and the future, you're trying to find the connecting link between the two. At this point the sense of being stuck, or perhaps overly attached to decisions that were made before time and experience shifted your perspective, are rooted in not knowing how to make changes that will set you on a whole new course. The question of what to give up, and what to keep, is all over this. Before the solstice settles in, there is a good chance that you will have it all figured out. Until then, keep in mind that there is a silver lining inside this dark cloud of unknowing.
LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):
You've got your hands full. This is nothing compared to what you're used to. If it shows signs of getting harder to handle, it's because there are too many things that challenge your ability to make everything totally OK with, or for, other people. A short break from the stuff that is less important than you make it is in order. Why? Because too much of who you are has lost itself on the altar of obligation, or in the name of love, and you're totally out of touch with yourself. It might be time to reclaim yourself and let absence make the heart grow fonder.
SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):
You've got your hands full and are doing your best to make the most of more than one opportunity. Up until now it's been easy to hold your own. By the time the solstice rolls around, a million and one options will put you on a fast track that will make the downside of the last few years vindicate whatever it's cost you to get here. What matters more than anything is the need to stay in the moment and be big enough to forgive the ones who walked off the set or fucked you over. Letting things be is where it's at right now. Do your best to forgive, and move on to what's next.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):
You wish you could figure out what to do next. What you thought would fall into place is doing exactly the opposite. You've gone out of your way to respond to things the way a self-aware person would. What you didn't count on was the fact that the deeper part of you is running on a lot of subconscious material that isn't the least bit aware of itself. Things could also be messed up by whatever the doctor has prescribed. The cure for what ails you is simple, but it won't get fixed overnight. The last thing you ever wanted to see is on top of the stack. It's finally time to look at it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):
You've got more than your share of issues. Too many things converging all at once have got you running around in your head, trying to figure out how to manage it all. The story in your love life is complicated. Someone is going back and forth; either that or you have questions about whether the outer story is in fact an inside job. At rock bottom all of this comes down to what lies beneath. Don't be too quick to dismiss it. None of it will make sense until everyone, including you, addresses the need to examine the dark side of what happens whenever love comes to town.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):
With everything under control, you are doing an excellent job in a situation that lesser mortals could not handle. Perched in the cat bird seat, it's as if you are the cream that has risen to the top. As 100 percent of your attention continues to be called to task, the human side of your life could easily fall by the wayside. There are times when we have no choice about these things. In your case, those who love you are well aware of what you're up against. Your goals and ambitions aside, don't wait too long to reconnect with those who will be there for you when all of this fades away.
PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):
What happens next depends a lot on time and the actions of other people. Give yourself a break knowing that you've done everything in your power to bring things to completion and make them work. The bigger part of your task now centers on the idea that you will only succeed by assuming a Maverick stance. It matters not whether you are concerned with your long term goals, or if you're just trying to bring a difficult situation or relationship back to center. The road less travelled, and the wayfarers who show up along the way, are where your best interests will be served.
