Horoscopes for December 12th – 18th, 2018
March 21 – April 20
In many ways recent changes, as intense as they may be, have gotten you off the hook with “stuff” that has been more trouble than it’s worth. You are secretly delighted that the need to handle whatever’s currently on top of the stack, gives you a free pass to avoid a raft of people and things that you have no desire to engage with. This situation is also making it possible for you to create a whole new life. At the very least, it’s opening the space for you to release the shackles of the past and look at your relationship to the world with a new sense of hope and optimism.
April 21 – May 20
You’ve been at your best, these days, shining in the face of adversity. As the pressures of your routine mount up, somehow or other you keep coming up with a way to rise above the BS. Others don’t know what to make of it. The ones who aren’t amazed appear to be envious. Those who refuse to meet you halfway have an axe to grind. Whatever this is about, it’s their problem. As the next few weeks unfold you will find yourself in a slipstream of positive energy. What goes around comes around, and at the moment, you are basking in the glow of some really good Karma.
May 21 – June 20
As you try to figure out what the next step will be, it might help to look at where you’ve already been. Knowing what got you here will involve getting to the bottom of why things went the way they did. It would be easy to say, “It is what it is” but this process can’t be intellectualized with a platitude or two. When we are 100 percent there for things, seeing what we don’t want to see goes with the territory. The minute you are willing to deepen your perceptions, what happens next will begin to manifest in a way that strengthens your purpose and gives life to your wildest dreams.
June 21 – July 20
It’s totally OK to keep doing what you’re doing, because right now, it seems to be working for you. All of your efforts have been aimed at getting to this place. Like a toad in a well, your needs are being met and nothing is missing. What is less apparent is that your comfort zone keeps you circumscribed in a range of experience that has limits. At a certain point it becomes important to see that there is an infinite realm of possibilities outside the boundaries that keep you in place. As soon as anything reaches perfection it starts to rot. It might be time to stretch your limits.
July 21 – August 20
If you thought you had it all figured out, people have shown up to rattle your cage and get you thinking about what it might take to do something constructive with your difficulties. Don’t assume that you know it all. Emotions are bound to be running high in situations that have been on tenterhooks for quite some time. You are clear what you want out of this, but don’t think it’s your job to settle things for others. To meddle, or be too controlling is a big “No-no” right now. The best you can do is stay on top of your own stuff and pray that others will stay on top of theirs.
August 21 – September 20
You’re at one of those points where everything feels pregnant with possibilities. In the same breath, you are unclear about how those possibilities will pan out. As much as you sense that something’s ready to pop, it has yet to make itself known. At times like this it comes down to keeping your ducks in a row, showing up on time, and going to the “well” everyday with your heart in your hand. In many ways, this waiting, and the anticipation that goes with it, teaches us everything we need to know about letting go, and reminds us that life unfolds in its own good time.
September 21 – October 20
As you look at what’s lined up in front of you, the desire to rise above the issues that occupy the foreground inspires you to make the best of things. Determined to keep your head above water, the tendency to overdo, or push yourself beyond reasonable limits, needs to be framed against what it means to be human. While it’s fine to be totally on the ball, life is a Yin and Yang affair. All your exertions have to be balanced with equal parts of rest, reflection, and repose – because it is in those still points that we restore the soul and recoup the strength that empowers us to keep on trucking.
October 21 – November 20
The need to go along with the program in order to keep, or win, the approval of others appears to be a strong theme. As you wrestle with the need to break free, you wonder if in choosing to do so these connections will go down the tubes. You’ve already had your share of rejection. So many close ties have eroded, the thought that one more person might walk off the set freaks you out. If you can’t be yourself in a situation you don’t need to be in it. People come and go. The ones who choose not to stick around will soon be replaced by others who love and accept you as you are.
November 21 – December 20
The crystal ball suggests that it’s time for you to be branching out. For many, this will involve buffing up your skill set with courses, seminars and maybe even contact with people who are experts in their field. If travel is part of this, that would make sense too; we often expand our minds when we change our surroundings. It’s time to step out of the phone booth and free yourself to be, and do, and have whatever you want. It looks to me like whatever you’ve established up until now is about to put a whole new spin on things that are due for a makeover.
December 21 – January 20
All kinds of stuff is coming to a head. It’s as if whoever you thought you were up to this moment has morphed into a new version of yourself. So many things have changed, what happens next marks the beginning of your next rise to fulfillment. This could be attended with a move. It could also include numerous changes in your family sphere. How it pans out over the next two years depends on the extent to which you can reconcile the fact that the past is over. That was then, this is now – who do you really want to be when you grow up? Whatever that is, you are birthing it now.
January 21 – February 20
It is no one’s business how you decide to handle this. Whoever thinks they know more about it that you do has no idea what you’re up against. Torn by the idea that you need to solicit their approval, knowing that living up to their demands will make things go from bad to worse, the best you can do is stay true to yourself and let others make of it what they will. Underneath it all, the crisis that you find yourself in is an opportunity to see who’s there for you and who isn’t. With that in mind, doing what needs to be done to be there for yourself is the only thing that matters.
February 21 – March 20
This would be so much easier if you could figure out how to bi-locate. The need to be in two places at once is a theme for many of you. What this involves could take a million different forms. For some, it comes down to having divided loyalties, or situations that involve third-party interference. For others there is the sense of being split between people, places and things. With your attention divided, it will take twice as much energy to handle your life. The tendency to space out needs to be carefully watched. For now you’d do well to focus and keep your priorities in order.
