Horoscopes (April 26-May 2)



ARIES (March 21- April 20):

You keep thinking you need to have this all handled, when in fact, it's already said and done. This time, it comes down to knowing enough to stand and wait. Going back and forth between people, places, and things will start to make sense once you get out of your head and find a way to stay current with whatever's going on. Eyeing up new digs, new people, and new possibilities is part of the deal. Moving on, up, and/or "out" is a huge theme. Between the past and the future, the present moment is where everything lives. Pay attention to that and things will go fine.

TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):

The emotional piece is in high gear. This is feeling good or bad, depending which end of the stick you are on. Others have their own fish to fry. If this comes as a surprise, you should have known that they weren't here for the duration. Look into your past for the answers. On a plain and simple level, you invested too much in what you thought was going on. You thought you had something, and it fell through: Welcome to the human race. For others, the story is totally different. As far as you are concerned things are on an upswing, and you are ready for anything.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

How you navigate the intricacies of your current situation depends heavily on your ability to turn on a dime. Nobody needs to know what to expect from you. Things are too complex for the tried and true method to make sense. Others are up in the air about how they feel. There is nothing you can do to change their mind except "be yourself." At the end of the day it's that, that they have to learn how to love. And when they can accept you as you are, the things that have made no sense will get clear enough for everyone to see that despite your differences, you want the same thing.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

You have every reason to expect things to work out. After a long period of going back and forth between the bank and the poor house you have finally learned how to keep things balanced enough to afford what's happening right now. It's not as if all your ducks are in a row, but you are free of enough BS to head out on your own. Changes in the larger forces that run the world around you are having an indirect impact on the timing of things; have respect for those influences. I see you being on your feet and ready for anything by the time the seasons change.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

So far so good. This isn't exactly what you had in mind, but you're willing to see how it plays out. Others are showing up with too much, or too little — and you're not interested in playing games. With no chance of making your influence felt, in the shadow of overpowering influences and out of control emotions, you'd do well to retreat until the coast is clear enough to warrant taking another run at this. In the meantime, there is more to life than this and thank God for that. New projects and people are about to show up and take you to a much more fulfilling place.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

You aren't too sure about this. As the scenery transforms, wondering what you're supposed to do about it will become more of an issue. Learning to live with the idea that everything comes and goes would help. Those closest to you have no idea that you feel lost. Time will clarify what is currently too hard to decipher. New relationships, along with new possibilities and new ways to approach everything in your life, are about to stir the pot. The spark of inspiration that has been lost for so long will soon be reignited by serendipitous changes that you could not foresee.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

You keep getting feedback that makes you feel kinda shaky about some of your choices. None of it is right or wrong. At this point all you can do about all this well-meant advice is: Consider the source and file it. Nobody knows better than you do how much is at stake. You have every right to go your own way and pursue your own methods. Even if the odds suggest that you don't have a prayer, the odds are something that are about to teach you how to redeem a situation that has gone too far afield. You can do this. It's just a matter of getting real and staying true to yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

I wish I knew what to say to you. On the other side of any breakthrough, there is a release that changes everything. You guys have been putting your best effort into things that will continue to work, as long as you don't get too hung up on the fact that whatever's been going on is about to turn around in surprising ways. The people, places, and things that you have met in your travels are a source of blessings and possibilities that weren't there two weeks ago. As you consider offers to do this and that, don't let yourself be blocked by thoughts that stymie your higher guidance.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

When life gets like this, it's hard to know where you're going to pull it from. The only thing one can do is remember that whatever happens, it's all coming from you. The idea that you have to be totally on top of things is less important than your ability to grok the fact that being in control is always an inside job. For sure, it helps to tie your Camel — but when you're shopping for a miracle, the bigger piece can't weave itself into being without a little help from the Ascended Masters. Keep it real and stay focused on remaining true to the best part of whatever got you this far.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

Too many people and things have gone under the bridge for you to be dwelling on anything but what's in front of you now. The slate is clear and you're starting out fresh. Some of you are totally certain about where to direct your energy and will be on a roll for the next three months. Your plans will pass or fail depending on their relevance. Those of you who have no clue what lies on the road ahead, or what form things will take, never fear. This is one of those times when you don't need to have a plan. Just keep paying attention and trust your gut to show you the way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):

You'll get through this. The hard part is usually the place where we get the lesson, so figure out how to relax about whatever putting your shoulder to the wheel might involve. Nobody but you is going to come to your rescue. Once you wake up to the fact that you have multiple options, everything will begin to seem more doable. As far as your relationships are concerned? Don't let anyone tell you what to do. They don't have to live your life and they have no idea what it's taken for you to get this far. Be patient with their good intentions and keep doing your own thing.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):

As things come to a climax, you don't know if you're coming or going. With this much turmoil, it's for sure that a lot of adjustments are being made. Others are not on the same bandwidth. Either that or they're not there at all. You've had more than your share of pressure and are just about ready to pop — but you won't because that's not the way you're made. I can't tell you what to do, but if I were in your shoes I could only handle it by taking one thing at a time, and making sure that my head is on straight enough to see more about other people's BS than I do about my own.
