ARIES (March 21-April 20): If you can just keep up with the way things are changing you will be totally fine. The point at the moment is to be able to hold steady inside a cloud of uncertainty that will eventually give way to whatever is being obscured by it. I have a feeling all kinds of interesting stuff is about to bubble up from the confusion of the last few months. Contacts who might actually do you a bit of good mean well. Give them time to prove their worth. Being used is a theme. Elements of deceit are strong. Be open to the idea that they may not be able to put their money where their mouth is.
TAURUS (April 21-May 20): Going forward would be easier if too much of that past wasn’t sticking to your sneaker. Levels of deceit in your current situation are shrouded by the fact that all of this got seeded in lies that were told over two years ago. It would be awesome if you could be the one to reclaim the standards and become the example in the here and now. Getting back to square one will demand some fessing up on your part, but who cares? The one who has the guts to tell the truth is always at risk, but the return to integrity is a pearl of great price, and worth whatever it takes.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can’t be held responsible for what doesn’t belong to you. The fact that you happen to be here suggests that it may have more to do with you than you think. It’s more than obvious that others have their share of issues. Your only part in this problem comes hand in hand with the fact that you feed into it, for better or worse. As the drama around you escalates, use your beautiful mind to examine the plot and ask yourself what would happen if you pulled out, or at least stopped providing the pipeline to the money, or the drugs, or the BS that keeps the situation alive.
CANCER (June 21-July 20): What’s up with you guys is hard to put in a nutshell. I could say that you don’t know if you’re coming or going. It would also make sense to tell you that you need to slow down long enough to get in touch with the idea that you think you’re having a life when you are actually on a treadmill. The thought that it might be important to “BREATHE” was never lost on you, but you’re so busy attending to everything and taking care of everyone, you forget to do it. Your next move is coming fast upon you. Take a little time to inhale before that wave hits the beach.
LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): It’s been interesting watching those close to you pull themselves up by the bootstraps. What you never thought would happen is giving you a chance to look at yourself as well. It even has you wondering what it is that you could be doing to set the world on fire. God help us if you come up with that formula because you’ve got so much going on you could actually pull it off. Reflecting on all of the possibilities that are arrayed in front of you now, your best bet would be to light up some inspiration in the hearts of those who have lost their way and have nothing left to lose.
VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): Now that your eyes are open the scenery is less clouded by the fantasy that filled it up until now. The full brunt of the Truth is often weighty enough to disillusion us — until we realize that you cannot get anywhere on a wing and a prayer and the bottom line has to be fully addressed before any real head way can be made. The trip back to square one is never easy but we didn’t come here to let fairy tales trick us into thinking that they were going to deliver anything substantial. Never fear. Love will always be the key. The truth is bound to take you, and all of this, deeper.
LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): Between one phase and another there is always a limbo state that makes you feel like you’re nowhere. We are so geared toward everything being solid and certain we forget that the “up-in-the-air phase” is where everything comes together. Use your thoughts wisely for the next few weeks because they will be busy imprinting all of your wildest dreams into the ether. If others appear to be on your case about anything that requires your full attention be clear about where you stand and let them know that you are in charge of your own life and in no need of any supervision.
SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): Dealing with one nut case after another has taught you enough about human nature to merit a degree in psychotherapy. Between the people you work with, and for, and the people who love you there is a three-ring circus of agendas and affairs that makes you wonder why you chose this instead of something a little less intense. I am here to remind you that intensity is your middle name. You are exactly where you need to be at the moment — and for some reason your presence in this situation makes you vital to it, and vital to any prayer it has for turning out for the best.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): You are in no position to do much but just sit here and wait. If it’s getting old I can see why. You’re at a point where knowing what to do next relies too much on time and the actions of other people for you to have a clue about what your role needs to be. For someone who thrives on having their act together you’ve got a few things hanging and are sort of flummoxed by what you can’t easily control. Getting around all of this will require you to take your hands off the wheel and let the universe open the way to possibilities that out do anything you could have imagined.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): No one needs to tell you what’s going on. If they could just figure that out, life would be so much easier. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but they aren’t the ones who have to live through this, and they have no idea what is actually happening here. The next few months will involve sorting out issues that have held your light under a bushel, or that have threatened to undermine your reputation. Before you go over the top trying to control the direction things take, be advised that it’s always best to let others get themselves hung up, and let the truth sort out the details.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): Being back in the saddle again comes with its own set of things to adjust to. If you thought you were going have a hard time with this it is nothing you haven’t seen before. The usual round of suspects is here to remind you how crazy things can get when everyone thinks they’re the one who deserves more than anyone else. You know better. And in having enough objectivity to see things for what they are, you will be able to rise above all of this. As you go about your business be mindful of your own needs and give as much as you can to whatever it is that gives you life.
PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): Welcome to the Jungle! I don’t know how you do it but it looks like you’re on cruise with a bunch of lunatics. Either that or you’ve wound up in the “Land of Misfit Toys.” In and around the craziness you seem to be enjoying yourself. The only danger I can see would be your tendency to think that any of this is real. It’s fine to step out of the box. It’s even OK to get lost. As long as you leave a trail of breadcrumbs that can lead you back to center you have my permission to play, and get as much as you can out of an experience that came to teach you a very powerful lesson.
