Horoscopes (June 5-11)


  • James Noellert

ARIES: March 21 – April 20

You're a little reluctant to jump into this with both feet. At the same time, something tells you it's safe to go ahead and go for it because it feels right. For someone who's good at trusting your intuition, you're doing better with it than most — and this is the key to everything right now. Be less concerned with where you'll wind up. Don't worry so much about what makes sense. You're at a point where you can move forward to embrace things that will deepen your connection to yourself and open possibilities for fulfillment that you never thought would come again.

TAURUS: April 21 – May 20

In the midst of change, all you can do is hold steady and maintain a 360-degree perspective. Opportunities flooding in from multiple quarters don't need to be decided upon until the seasons change. You have no way of knowing which way the wind is about to blow. If there is a method for any of the things that stand in front of you right now, it has to do with knowing how to drop the reins and observe the ways in which life always shows you what needs to happen next. Relax. Don't be too concerned with anything but what it takes to see, and read the writing on the wall.

GEMINI: May 21 – June 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 confidence 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 the law of serendipity is working in your favor. 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 has a problem with it doesn't have your best interests in mind.

CANCER: June 21 – July 20

You think you have it all figured out. There is always more to learn. You could go so much further if you could figure out how to go a little deeper into your primary issues. It's one thing to have it all sewed up intellectually and another thing to totally clear it. Your current situation has too many threads to the past for you to know how much of this needs to be preserved. You are definitely at a crossroads. This time, it looks like you need to get to the bottom of things, knowing that the outer story will transform once you fix the fundamental stuff that fuels the inner peace.

LEO: July 21 – August 20

It's hard to say what's best at this point. You thought you had it all figured out, and now there is a totally new story going on. Like everyone else, you need to let go and allow whoever, or whatever is at the wheel provide the sign that tells you to stop or go. For your own sake, and because the need to find your place and to be recognized are both vital to your sense of well-being, it would be great if certain things could be settled before it's too late. Everything that's on the line will be less overwhelming once you stop waffling around and nail down what you really want.

VIRGO: August 21 – Sept. 20

You're at a point where you have a huge amount of freedom. If you're a little gun-shy from the impact of every previous mistake, or from the fear that you can't afford to lose the tiny patch of security that you've created for yourself, get over it. Once you get around those issues, whatever happens to be waiting for you "outside" of the box is more than ready to take you wherever you really want to go. If you're concerned about the practical aspects of whatever it takes to head off into parts unknown, trust me; life turns into a slipstream the minute we get on the right path.

LIBRA: Sept. 21 – Oct. 20

You're just waking up to the fact that your behavior is based on a model that you constructed when you were about 2 years old. What you had to do to survive your childhood is hard at work in your adult relationships, screwing things up in ways that turn you into a codependent being who has yet to find out who you really are. At the moment, major choices are pitting the part of you that needs to please everyone but yourself, against the need to come out of the closet and be yourself. It's now or never. Be prepared: on the road to authenticity, others are bound to put up a fuss.

SCORPIO: Oct. 21 – Nov. 20

It's time to get your fingers out of the machinery. In this situation, someone expects you to step in; as much as they're counting on it, they also need to figure this out for themselves. Not saying anything can be more powerful than words. Let them think this is their decision; and while you're at it, get a life. Having your mind on other people and their affairs keeps you out of touch with yourself. The trick to really being able to help people involves staying true to our own lessons and embodying our own potential purely enough to give others a good reason to embody theirs.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 21 – Dec. 20

The sense that something is about to come down has many of you imagining the worst at a time when things could go either way. Don't keep wringing your hands over what life or others might be capable of. Whether you see it or not, you have invisible arms of support that have been, and will always be there for you. You are also way more powerful than you realize, and you've got the upper hand as far as honesty goes. In the end, integrity may be the only thing that counts in this world. Stay connected to your own truth knowing that sooner or later it sets all of us free.

CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 – Jan. 20

It may be time to say goodbye. Moments like this are always attended with angst because no one teaches us how to end things. What's going on right now is the result of choices that were made at a time when you had no idea what you were getting into. Facing the reality of the situation has shown you that you either "can't get there from here," or that you can't function in a relationship where your partner keeps trying to turn you into something that you're not. Whoever's having a hard time with this needs it more than you do. It's time to bite the bullet, cut the cord, and let go.

AQUARIUS: Jan.21 – Feb. 20

You're at a high water mark, under a tremendous amount of pressure, and wondering if anything is what it's cracked up to be. Questions about your "position" have gotten deep enough to make you wish making your mark didn't involve so much compromise. Step back far enough to look at what your position requires of you and ask yourself if you're willing to suck it up and keep going. In the face of multiple forms of hypocrisy, there will be choices to make — and you will have to find a way to achieve your goals and remain true to yourself every step of the way.

PISCES: Feb. 21 – March 20

You're under a lot of pressure. Issues with tyrannical authority figures who remind you a lot of your parents are making you feel even more stressed out. When nothing flows, it makes no sense to stiffen up and try to keep it all under control. You're in a situation that needs you to be cool enough to move freely, and smart enough to figure out that whoever's putting the pressure on is not half as conscious as you are. Pull yourself together and do your best to play this game without losing yourself to the idea that winning it will require you to give all your power away.
