ARIES (March 21-April 20): You can’t afford to be too cautious about anything right now. It sounds strange, I know, but this whole situation calls for bold measures and enough balls to take chances that no one but you can take. I can’t say for sure how long it will be before you have any certainty as to how all this will play out, but you’ve got the Law of Serendipity working in your favor, so nothing matters more than your ability to listen to your heart and follow the instructions that come from within. Your next choice is up in the air. Anyone who can’t handle it doesn’t have your best interests in mind.
TAURUS (April 21-May 20): The way things look, you’re ready to fly. All of this has expanded to the point where whatever’s next will go as far as you’re willing to take it. If the bigger part of you is saying, “Bring it on,” the only piece you have to keep an eye on is the one that isn’t quite ready to have it all. As strange as it might seem, at the point where everything comes together the idea that it could just as easily fall apart is also part of the picture. Don’t fall prey to overconfidence, or give yourself more credit than you deserve. Know yourself; and be wise enough to consider the virtues of humility.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can get away with anything because your intentions are usually pure enough to get you off the hook. And if they don’t, you can talk circles around anyone who has a problem with it. The way things are going these days, no one has time to keep an eye on you, and you seem to be moving along like gangbusters, assuming that it’s all going to go the way you want it to. If this is how it’s always been in the past, you might have another thing coming. Don’t be surprised if your best-laid plans get arbitrarily sideswiped by forces that call you to slow down and get real.
CANCER (June 21-July 20): The need to be OK with things that keep reminding you of your past is showing you so much about yourself. The ones who are there to keep you sane keep telling you that this is all about your mother. That may be so, but the buck stops here and you have finally gotten to the point where you’re willing to own all of it. As life opens to the possibility that you didn’t come here to redeem anyone but yourself, you’re looking at the ways in which your desire for love has held you hostage to people and things that your spirit has either outgrown or is over and done with.
LEO (July 21-Aug. 20): The choices you face are all in your hands. It comes down to do you want to heal this, or is it one of those things where you’re going to roll over and play dead? The tendency to lay blame could be all over the place. This is no time to walk away from the idea that we create our own reality. That being the case, you know that you have to figure out how to love this, or figure out how to leave it. Your life is at stake. You can keep this alive and be the one to make it thrive, or you can turn your back and let the chips fall where they may. Your only task is to do the next right thing.
VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): You can’t figure out why the things that used to matter more than anything pale in comparison to the simple feeling that you only came here to remain centered, with an open heart. Not to get too aerie-fairie about it, but all of us are beginning to see that it’s time to structure our lives from a totally different place. For someone who has all ducks in a row, this process is challenging you to be super flexible about how everything goes. As the sands keep shifting, the more you get out of your comfort zone, the more you will see that life is much better outside the box.
LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): After a series of twists and turns, you are coming out on the other side with a new sense of self and a body of experience that has given you a tremendous amount of strength. Knowing what you’re here for is part of it. For many of you, the idea that the price of freedom is discipline is ringing truer than anything. As the next few months unfold, you’ll be enmeshed in a process that is bound to be similar to the one you just completed. It’s all part of the same test and all part of a lesson that is teaching about what it means to be 100 percent accountable for everything you do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): It’s time to shift gears and use the lessons of the last few weeks to remind yourself where your point of balance lies. Too much has swept over your consciousness, and too many people have co-opted your strength, for you to think that even a machine could continue in this vein. The truth about what you need doesn’t have to be an expensive, complicated thing, and it doesn’t have to involve anything stressful. Holding steady and true will continue to apply, no doubt about it — but this week, it would help you more than anything to drop out and reconnect with yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): You can keep this going only if it works as well for you as it does for everyone else. Trying to figure out how that goes is the kicker because your perceptions are easily clouded by the beliefs that are so popular in the culture these days. I don’t know how clear you are about who’s doing all the giving, but you can’t start raising Cain about getting your needs met until you look at the other side of the story. Always and in everything, life is a two-way trail. Your part in things is as huge as the part that others have played in keeping your situation from being a dream come true.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): Now that you’ve seen what happens whenever you go too far over the top with your perfection trips, you’re ready to turn down the volume and get back to what’s true for you. With a window of time begging you to give every moment to yourself, my only prayer for you guys would be to stop the madness and reconnect with something that gives you a reason to want to be in your life. We’re all at a crossroads. The weight of the changes that all of us are processing feels heavier to you. Don’t be disheartened: They’ll lighten up when you can allow yourself to be who you are.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): You’re not sure about any of this. Any attempt to stabilize or get to the bottom of it will get you nowhere. This sense of anxiety could very well be “anticipation” — don’t overlook that possibility. In some cases, what’s about to happen will alter your entire reality structure. The part of you that’s ahead of the game can “feel” this. For the next few months, the events that have already started to unfold will reveal more of themselves in a process that’s meant to show you that life is always way more interesting than custom, and conditions and standards for approval allow it to be.
PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20): You could use a team of experts. At this point you’ve got so many issues to contend with, your universe is a maelstrom of change. Putting up with other people and their shenanigans is always an issue with you guys. The tendency to go blank when it comes down to seeing through the bullshit will get you every time. This time, it would be great if you could tap into the wisdom of your more weathered and street-smart allies. I see a wolf in sheep’s clothing, or a liar or two, ready to sit down at your table with a knife and fork. Don’t let them carve you up for dinner.
