ARIES (March 21-April 20): What you never thought would come together is finally starting to gel. Part of you feels like you’re about to give birth and the rest of you is nervous as hell. If you’ve remained true to yourself you can be sure that everything that’s about to come to fruition will work out just fine; in fact it looks to me like this has earned you the right to be released from the past. If you’re out of touch with the truth or there’s any trace of bitterness fueling your choices, you will soon find out that it doesn’t pay to lie and it never pays to pretend to be something that you’re not.
TAURUS (April 21-May 20): Life is bringing up all kinds of stuff. You’ve got more than enough to think about. Going back and forth between what you want to do and what makes the most sense shouldn’t keep you from having fun. Work is in a state of transition. As long as you remember that timing is everything, and that there’s no way to make your mark when everything is in a state of flux, you’ll be OK. As far as your love life goes; losing touch with oneself never made anyone more attractive. You can’t be joined at the hip and you can’t let your security issues tie you or your partner down.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): What do you do now? If you’re feeling stuck and you don’t know how to handle this, remind yourself that whatever’s going on is giving you more than one reason to open your life, your mind, and your heart. To be too fearful, or too set in your ways to connect with what’s missing would be a mistake. Thinking that what you thought you ought, wanted, or felt was the “right thing to do” will work in a situation that seems to be begging you to connect with what’s right for you is insane. Open your eyes; what works for everyone else is the last thing you need.
CANCER (June 21-July 20): The last six months have put you through the ringer. If you feel trapped, stuck, or shellshocked, I would not be surprised. Wondering if there’s any light at the end of the tunnel, many of you are hoping for some sort of reprieve; in lieu of that, a few answers might be enough to help you know why all of this had to happen. A little distance and time, coupled with a willingness to believe that everything happens for the best would work wonders. There will be no answers until you let go and begin to see yourself in the now moment, knowing that your future begins here.
LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): As easy as you make everything look, you’re under more pressure than the average bear. Holding your own will involve directing your energy into your work. If others know you well enough to give you plenty of space, and you’re wise enough to stop the madness every now and then, you will manage to move gracefully through the mill. Things that have been a long time coming are about to reach a milestone. The 8-Ball has always come up in your favor, and it’s bound to do it again. But life is a school; this is a test, and the answers have yet to be written.
VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): There’s enough going on to keep you busy forever. Diversifying your options seemed like such a good idea. As much as it appears as if everything is on its way up, a little realism will remind you that anything can happen. The slip between the cup and the lip is where serendipity rules — and that factor has more sway over things than anything else these days. Go ahead and make your plans; feel free to see how far they can go. And if something pops up to redirect your energy, be open enough to see that something greater than you imagined will come out of it.
LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): People keep pressing you to get on board with things that you lost interest in a couple of lifetimes ago. You’re feeling a bit compromised by what looks like an attempt to capitalize on your credibility and your experience. As much as you wish you didn’t have dip back into the past, your security trips keep telling you, you need the money. I’m not so sure if that attitude will get you anywhere. When it comes to what we do with our lives it never pays to be overly practical. The better part of what comes to us comes from knowing enough to follow our hearts.
SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): The ability to roll with the punches is where it’s at right now. This is no time to be getting stuck trying to make everything perfect. For many of you, themes that have your back to the wall aren’t half as difficult as they seem. You don’t need to worry, or assume that high levels of uncertainty are any sign that you’ve lost it. Life has its own way of showing us how to deal with the things that are only there to redirect us. You will get better at knowing how to trust your inner guidance once you understand that your Higher Self would never dream of leading you on.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): Don’t count on any of these irons in the fire to pan out. It would be better for you if whatever does or doesn’t come to fruition is of no consequence to you. I say this because you’re in a position where it really doesn’t matter where you decide to go with any of this. You could just as easily be less involved, or slip out of the picture completely and it would make no difference to you. Imagine that. Now ask yourself if you know why you want this and consider what your life will turn into if you make any of it more important than remaining true to yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): Too much nothing has you wanting to ground yourself in things that are real. The next few weeks will call you to organize and stabilize your support systems and the connections that keep them going. If you can settle down and focus, it will free you up to explore other opportunities the moment they open up. For the first time in a long time you have a chance to make something happen. The fact that others can actually be there for you is a miracle. If two heads really are better than one, your next project will sprout wings and turn out to be a total success.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): Don’t assume that more is better. If you’re suffering from lack of stuff, work, love, time, or attention, how can you make the most of what you’ve got? The truth is we always have everything we need. If you look around you will see that it’s all here in front of you and the fruits of your labors are what you have to work with. If it’s time to change, don’t hesitate to shift your direction and don’t be afraid to leave everything behind. Too much is about to re-route you to a totally different course, and you can’t get too stuck on anything that keeps you away from it.
PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): Lots of things are converging all at once. You feel good enough about it to be there for it, in a much different way than you’ve gone about things in the past. If you could look down on your life from a bird’s eye view, you would see this as a period of change where all of the issues and problems from the past finally came to be resolved and understood. As intense as this feels, you need to know that it goes with the territory anytime we begin to get to the crux of the issue. Hang in there, my friend; this is one huge test and it ain’t over. You haven’t seen anything yet.
