Horoscopes (Oct. 25-31) 

ARIES (March 21- April 20):

You have more than one option. It will be interesting to see which one you choose. Too many things are at stake for you to miss out on the opportunity to turn your life around. If that sounds dramatic, that's the way things are at the moment. The sooner you pick up on the fact that you're on the razor's edge, the better things will go. As the next few months unfold you will need to come clean in situations that you screwed up in the past. If you have amends to make, or issues that will block the best possible outcome from coming to pass, it's time to swallow your pride and let go.

TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):

You had no idea what all of this would lead to. As you contemplate your position it doesn't take much to see that you would have chosen a different route if you'd known enough to read the signs that were there from the beginning. The need to hold steady competes with the thought that you'd do better to drop everything and change directions. What happens next will depend on what feels like the right thing to do. You need every ounce of integrity to come to the fore. If it seems like letting go and shifting gears is the right choice, take one more month to make that decision.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

You've been breaking all the rules and getting along just fine. Why God gave you diplomatic license plates is a good question. Those who know you well wonder what's up as they watch you move through this gauntlet without a hitch. The bigger part of you knows that your higher self has got you covered all the way down the line. Even if temporary road blocks create the sense that it's time to haul back and conform to what's expected, the truth is, doing what's expected isn't your style. Be confident in the faith that got you this far. It will protect you all the way home.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

Getting back in touch with yourself could involve having other people get back in touch with you. For one reason or another you will be sought out. It could be for old times' sake. It could also be the hand of fate showing up with an opportunity that you can't refuse. If you take the time to read between the lines, something incredible stands a chance of evolving out of what comes to pass in the next week or two. Part of the deal will take the form of you needing to stick your neck out and get over being too timid to step up and ask for what you want.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

Rewind to about 14 years ago. So many things have changed, time and experience may be calling you to switch gears. It's hard to say. As far as what happens next goes, if you can't find a reason to keep doing what you're doing, it's time to move on. If you're totally OK with all of this, you don't necessarily have to change it but you do need to take it to a new level. There are already signs showing you that another dream, or a new endeavor is waiting in the wings ready to lift you up and take you away. Whatever's 'up', it'll take nine more months for this baby to be birthed.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

Getting back on the ball could be a theme. Half of you is here for this. The other half wonders why you keep going. With you guys there is always enough strength for the task at hand, but lately you notice that it's getting old, you've blown your wad, and your mind is on other things. Keeping up the good fight will be where it's at for about two more months. During that interval forces that are as yet unseen will come into play and show you that for reasons that are hard to explain, all of this could be over and done with; it all depends on what it's costing you to stay put.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

How far you will take this depends on a lot of things. How conscious you are about what it will cost you is one of them. Those of you who are here for the right reasons will be more than willing to let go the minute you wake up to the fact that whatever you do has to serve the greater good, as opposed to serving your own self interests. Being honest about that issue will be harder for some of you than it is for others. The difference between what you decide to call this, and what it really is, is the kicker. 86 the need to sugarcoat it. Facing the music will require brutal honesty.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

The question: "Should I stay, or should I go?" No one can answer it but you. There could also be issues that relate to whether or not it's time to give yourself the space to get back into doing what you love, instead of dancing attendance on other people and their best interests. If you feel pressure, it is self-imposed. Those who know and love you want only what is best for you. The need to set yourself free could involve letting your security trips take a hike for as long as it takes for you and your life to get back to a place that is meaningful enough to make it worth living.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

What you thought would go one way is now going in a completely new direction. If things have gotten three times more complicated than they were at the get-go, it should come as no surprise. You were being optimistic when you gave others more credit than they deserved. Your infinite patience has gotten you into a pickle. The lesson here has to do with what happens when our limited awareness gives others an excuse to walk all over us. If there are issues that need to be resolved, you will be trudging through this quagmire until Christmas turns the tide and sets you free.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

You didn't come here to live a simple or trivial life. At the moment all kinds of stuff is piling up to make you wonder what you're here for. Not knowing how to handle things competes with the sense that you need to be totally on the ball — especially when it comes to your relationships. Within this dynamic there are feelings of frustration that will not smooth out for a couple of months. The last thing you want to do is screw yourself up. Ironing things out will require you to come to terms with other people. Seeing them for who they truly are is what's at issue right now.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):

In the middle of a Chinese fire drill, the only choice to be made is the one that tells you to keep going. If you stop for a minute the whole ball of wax will get tangled up to the point where everyone involved will lose their place. On so many levels you know that there is a greater need to turn all of this into something meaningful, but this is one of those times when the greater good can only be served by staying on the conveyor belt and doing what the Romans do. Your time will come. Ultimately, this endless routine will help you own the right to do things your way.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):

Now that you have a little more freedom and space, give yourself time to adjust to the idea that you are involved in a whole new ballgame. What took up so much of your energy in the past is now available to go where it really needs to go. If your whole life has led you to this point, it looks to me like you are about to turn into a supernova. One way or another, with all the pressure off, you are coming into your own. As this happens there is bound to be a major test that opens you up to your true abilities and to the idea that love is the key, and that it always finds a way.
