ARIES (March 21- April 20):
You don't know what to make of some of the changes that have taken place of late. Some of the people who have shown up are just as much of a conundrum. As hard as it is to maintain a sense of certainty about anything, you can help yourself by remembering that the old rules no longer apply. What you've been led to believe about life, love, and the pursuit of happiness has been distilled by your direct experience into something that is a little closer to the truth. Let go of the need to make anything fit the old story. Your future depends upon seeing life as it is now.
TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):
Hanging in there in situations that demand loyalty and faithfulness is important right now. It's a good thing that you have what it takes to handle that stuff. It is equally vital that you assess people and things with enough clarity to see at what point they have gone off the rails, or totally out of integrity — because it is foolhardy to remain aligned with anything or anyone that has lost its way. The fear that you will be left out in the cold if you follow your truth is an illusion. Trust me: What comes to pass will rise or fall depending on how faithful you remain to yourself.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20):
You've had it up to here with whatever's going on. If it feels like you've been totally challenged every step of the way it's because the universe is trying to get you to show it who you are. There are bound to be issues that beg you to look at what lies ahead, and push you to decide what needs to be left behind. Getting too hung up on the difficulties belies the need to pay as much attention to the prospects that are currently dancing on the horizon. All of your choices need to be made from a truthful place, where, at rock bottom, your heart can override egoic needs to keep playing games.
CANCER (June 21-July 20):
All of us had a dysfunctional childhood; you're not alone! At this point it's time to turn things around and stop using it as the excuse for whatever went wrong. The wound is the remedy and what you did or did not get from your parents is the gift that will ultimately teach you about your true purpose. The water that's gone under the bridge in the last two years has opened the space for a whole new start. The possibilities that lie ahead are begging you to put the past to rest. Let it go! Cutting off the dead wood will require a ton of self-awareness and maybe even a move.
LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):
When you are morphing into a butterfly, it is a waste of time to wonder why you feel so up in the air. The imagined need to "return to center" takes you away from both yourself and the truth. Life always comes down to remaining centered in whatever the story is looking like now. This will be different for each of you. Between the depths of despair and the highest possible expression of whoever you think you are, the fine line can only be held by letting it be and loving it, either way. Don't over-exalt or denigrate what is all part of a deeper, much more mysterious process.
VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):
It will be at least two months before you are in the clear. Hog-tied to intense Saturn aspects leaves very little room for expansion. Those of you who are just beginning to see the fog lift need to keep an eye on things just long enough to avoid jumping to conclusions. While it's true that after a long period of testing the lesson is just about over, the fat lady has yet to sing. Hold steady and remain humble. Once the first of the year rolls around, some of the opportunities that are materializing now will have room to manifest fully. Until then, be patient and keep on trucking.
LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):
It's hard for you to see past the things that you do to make life perfect. On the surface, you are the nicest person on the planet. Charming, cooperative, and willing to do anything to ease the tension, the pain, and discomfort that your radar picks up on in the world around you, anyone with these qualities would have to be just as aware of the darkness. There are times when what you're always trying to "fix" needs to be left alone. At the moment, keeping your fingers out of the machinery will do more to set things right than your attempts to cover up what's really going on.
SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):
How long this will last is a good question. It could go on forever, but that's totally up to you. You are straddling a line that is full of mixed blessings and/or putting you on the spot. No one knows why we wind up where we do. As much as this situation is unusual, much benefit can be derived when we are lost in space, wondering why nothing looks the way it should. Find the "light" in whatever is going on here. Only then will you begin to "see it" and find your place long enough to understand that what makes no sense at all is actually working quite well for you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):
Major turnarounds are on the menu. Some of you may even be recovering from 180-degree turns that occurred about a year ago. Either way, getting your bearings and staying grounded enough to both be here for this, and remain true to yourself, are all over this story. Nothing can be gained from judging yourself too harshly. Neither can you wallow in regret. With any luck what seems out of control, or too hot to handle will find its way back to center. To ensure that possibility, it's your turn to stay rooted to your own truth, instead of letting others shove theirs down your throat.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):
Weighing your options has got you wondering why it's necessary to make a choice. Having your cake and eating it too may be impossible in this situation. What you would like to remain in play has changed a lot in the last year or two. As much as it must have meant something to you, at this point you have to reassess everything about it and look at who you get to be if you decide to either keep it running or give it up altogether. Time and the actions of other people are a big factor here. The business of "wait and see" will see you biding your time for the next month or two.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):
Riding this wave has required enormous amounts of patience and understanding. What you have done in the name of love is enormous. Now that you stand at a place that allows you to reflect upon what it has been worth, you have come to understand that time and experience have done more to change you than whatever your ego thought you were doing seven years ago. With a priceless body of wisdom under your belt, what lies ahead will bear the fruit of it. As much as there are bound to be stones in the road, your future stands on your endless ability to remain true to yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):
You are up and down these days. Major decisions will see you going back and forth about whether or not such-and-such was "the right thing to do." Others have their two-cents to add. Their input is only a reflection of the part of your psyche that is unsure about things. At this point your intuition is stronger than your logic. It's also true that you are the one who has to take charge and be the one who knows what's best for everyone in this situation. Changes are bound to include novel approaches that make the road less traveled more sensible than the traditional route.
