ARIES: March 21 – April 20
You've got irons in the fire and things are shaping up to make you believe in yourself again. The stuff that you never thought you'd get to do is all about to happen and now your head trips have you wondering if you're going to be able to get it to fly. You, of all people, should know that this is going to be whatever you make it. While you let the Nazi in your head hassle you about your abilities, the greater part of you knows that you can do this. Look twice at where all of the doubts are coming from. Our fears of success are oftentimes much greater than our fear of failure.
TAURUS: April 21 – May 20
Before you go asking for advice, keep in mind that others aren't as objective to your situation as you need them to be. Even if they mean well, they have no way to comprehend, let alone empathize with, the circumstances that are arrayed in front of you right now. Keeping yourself centered will help you remain on top of things. There is lots of gossip going around that concerns things that are no one's business but your own. By the time it gets back to you, you will be either totally enraged or totally amused by it. If half of it were true, your life would be twice as exciting.
GEMINI: May 21 – June 20
What up until now appeared to be a setback has revealed itself to be a blessing in disguise. As you review the events of the last year or so, you are waking up to the fact that all of them functioned to move you onto a whole new path. What lies up on the road ahead is open to question — but when "anything goes," you begin to realize that life begins where the sidewalk ends. Remain open to alternatives. In these moments when we find ourselves at an impasse, it becomes important to reach out and search for new and different ways to approach everything.
CANCER: June 21 – July 20
This would be easier if you were less diligent. Not to turn you into a delinquent, but it would be great if you could give yourself more time to think, or more time to beam in on what runs you from within. It's good that all of this is spinning like a top, but if you step back from whatever you've managed to keep afloat, there's something missing. Sooner or later the need to transcend the mundaneness of things will overtake complacency and stir the pot. These things happen in cycles. Call it the 7-year-itch, but you're due for a wake-up-call, or an upset that rearranges the scenery.
LEO: July 21 – Aug. 20
There is no need to question the fact that you are ready to drop everything and move on to what's next. If you are still functioning under the illusion that you need to stick this out, guess again. We are taught that persistence pays off, but there are times when it drives us insane and gets us nowhere. If you could see around the corner, you would know that it's your turn to embark on a course of action that will define the rest of your life. Once you step out of the box, the guidance will come. The only question you need to ask is: "Who do I really want to be when I grow up?"
VIRGO: Aug. 21 – Sept. 20
Whenever we reach a turning point, there is always a pause that suspends us between the past and the future. Those of us who expect life to keep moving in a straight line tend to freeze in our tracks when change stares us in the face. The rest of your life is around the bend. What's next could be anything. Just because you can't see what it is doesn't mean there's nothing there. In your case it looks like it's time to find out what you're here for. As you dive deep enough to reclaim yourself, the shackles of the past will release their grip and set you free to pursue your truer purpose.
LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20
More than your share of external pressure has either strengthened you or is starting to make you wonder why it's your job to handle this. Looking at the facts and weighing them against what you thought would happen, if you're ready to drop everything and leave, I wouldn't be surprised. Any hesitation on your part has something to do with the "money card." However that plays out in your version of reality, this is a huge checkpoint. And the fine line between what we think is going to do it for us and the gate of fulfillment lies in knowing how to want what money can't buy.
SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20
Your kids are showing up as the centerpiece in a scenario that is begging you to look at all of your stuff. If it isn't that, you are doing whatever it takes to heal and nourish your soul. Changes in your work and your love life have opened the space for some creative decision-making. It looks like you have caught on to the need to be flexible, even to the point of being willing to turn what could be a rift into a "creative separation." If it's your turn to be bigger than the problems that assail you, those things will be cooking, and they will keep you on tenterhooks through the fall.
SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20
Things have been totally crazy. The only thing you have been able to rely upon is the wellspring of faith that has kept you alive through thick and thin. As the next few weeks allow you to settle into the idea that something has allowed you to "find your way home," you are going to reassess your approach to both your work and your relationships. As far as your love life goes, it comes down to reckoning with the truth and being who you are instead of doing what's expected. When it comes to your work, it's time to look into more eclectic approaches to making a living.
CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 - Jan. 20
You are breathing a sigh of relief. Sweating bullets appears to have paid off. Against all odds the next phase of your journey has opened the space to settle down into something doable. It's not your final resting place, but for now you get to be on top of things. The fact that all of this has come together is clear evidence that, while the power of your own will has had a lot to do with it, the spirits that watch over you have been there too. As the next few months unfold those close to you will begin to take charge of their own lives, and you will be free to get back to doing what you love.
AQUARIUS: Jan. 21 – Feb. 20
Finding your voice is hard when you're dealing with people who won't take "no" for an answer. You've got your hands full trying to figure out how to live your truth and be free to speak it at the same time! Don't get too caught up in this paradox. There are too many things that are about to take off for you to be obsessing over life's little ironies. Others are there for you, no matter how it looks. Your definition of what it takes to be cared for has very little to do with what your spirit needs. You are about to be reminded that getting what you need is about giving it to yourself.
PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20
Whoa, baby! This situation beats them all. The expression, "There's many a slip between the cup and the lip" fits your circumstances to a T. I say this because on your way to the next thing, a number of other issues have intervened to block, or interfere temporarily, with whatever you thought would be easy as pie. These things happen to keep us from going too far too fast. Sometimes they serve to direct us away from making mistakes that could screw us up in the long run. In your case the message seems to be "think twice" and reassess your options before you proceed.
