Horoscopes for December 19th – 25th, 2018
March 21 – April 20
At any major crossroad, so many things come up for review. With pictures of your perfect life dissolving in the face of direct experience, the “should I stay or should I go?” button is switched on, big time. Up until now you thought you had your bases covered. In light of recent events, you are being called to re-evaluate all of your most cherished illusions. The choices that line the road ahead will involve huge needs to look at the gap between what you believe and what’s right in front of your nose. With any luck you will pass this test, and find the strength to go for what’s real and true.
April 21 – May 20
With more than a few things rattling your cage, and too many people expecting you to walk on water, finding ways to handle it all and remain true to yourself will require a miracle or two. At times like this one has to wonder why it’s your job to be the one that everyone needs to lean on. You’ve been here before. And the saying goes, “Life doesn’t get easier; we get better.” At this point you’ve gotten so good at surmounting the rough stuff, the deeper part of you can do this with your eyes closed. One more round of chaos? No need to freak out over it. It’s a piece of cake.
May 21 – June 20
Whenever we hit a re-set point, it often feels like all hell is breaking loose. The need for certainty has to be exchanged for a willingness to let life step in and rearrange the scenery. You may not know how this will pan out, but one thing’s for sure; what lies up on the road ahead will be way more fulfilling than what’s going on right now. Keep an eye on the signs. They are all around you. And as you let go of the need to hang onto the past, you will find out that any real sense of security rests in knowing that even when it all falls away, you will be safe, sound, and totally fine.
June 21 – July 20
Well something has come along to take the edge off; at least for a while. You’ve been wound up tighter than a Swiss watch over circumstances that drive you nuts or by people who seem to be hell bent on doing the same. The next few weeks will offer you a hiatus, with enough peace, and joy, and quiet to regroup and come back to center. Make the most of it. With plenty of freedom to breathe and reflect, you will be able to re-enter the fray with more strength than ever. Others are 100% there for you. Don’t miss out on the chance to reconnect and remind yourselves where the love is.
July 21 – August 20
You have to figure out how to listen to your heart instead of your ego; there is a huge difference. What you are drawn to on any given day is subject to the tricks that the mind plays on all of us. There are times when what we take to be our heart’s desire is actually an egocentric thing that appeals to our desire to be worshipped and adored. It takes a lot of honesty and maturity to look within and see what our truer desires really contain. Be mindful of this – because at this point your future happiness and success hinges completely on your ability to listen to your heart.
August 21 – September 20
Feeling torn between one thing and another has a lot to do with the fact that you are evolving beyond the dictates of the past. In many ways, this is an identity crisis. Part of you is stuck on who and what others expect you to be, and the other part of you is already grounded in a newer, finer version of yourself. There are bound to be others who test or challenge your process in the midst of what amounts to a growth spurt. Don’t let this distract you. At times like this sometimes it works best to keep to ourselves, just long enough to get clear about who we want to be when we grow up.
September 21 – October 20
As you plow through your current affairs, a thousand and one things will come to light. Life is about to take you a hell of a lot deeper than you ever thought you would go. Nobody but you can pierce the veil that lies between you and the truth. Some of you are more than willing to face it. Others are afraid that it will kill you. However you see it, only the truth can set you free. The next few weeks offer you a chance to come to terms with issues that keep it at bay. Those close to you are supportive or not. Align yourself only with the ones who want to see you grow and change.
October 21 – November 20
Waiting for other people to wake up and smell the coffee breeds disappointment. Hoping against hope that all of this will turn out the way you want it to is a clear sign that life’s fundamental lessons have been lost on you. “You can’t always get what you want – but you get what you need” is where it’s at right now. Learning how to live with the fact that whoever or whatever you’ve put so much stock in didn’t pan out will take time. Be patient with yourself as you work through issues that are rising up just to remind you that your higher self knows more about it than you do.
November 21 – December 20
Like a deer in the headlights you are too shell shocked by your current experiences to have a clue as to what to do. You can’t stay where you are, and you can’t see far enough into the future to know where to go. The temptation to hang on to people and things that represent safety and security is stronger than ever. This MO is bound to complicate things that are already crazy enough. It may work better to get used to standing alone. I say this because your current affairs are testing your ability to turn on a dime and break free of things that have outgrown their usefulness.
December 21 – January 20
Looking back over the last seven years, it’s clear that your entire being has been redefined. From now on, whoever you thought you were will morph into both a force to be reckoned with, and a truer version of yourself. For the next stretch of this journey, keep your focus on the inner plane. Why? Because life gets birthed from the inside out, and nothing you do will hold water until the ego is extracted from the mix and you are willing to let your higher calling shine through. Keep the faith. Be less concerned with how things appear and more concerned with what feels real and true.
January 21 – February 20
If you knew how much people cared, it would be awesome. Being too self-protective, it’s hard to open your heart to the idea that it matters. This is not a criticism. Your life has been so filled with the need to detach, letting yourself be open to your own feeling nature, let alone the feelings of others, scares you to death. If in some moment of truth you could manage to let down your guard, it would do you good to respond to these overtures of love and kindness. What feels like nothing to you, is as good as it gets, and could turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to you.
February 21 – March 20
Minor details are sucking up a lot of your vital energy. It would be easy to let this distract you from the things that really matter. Unresolved issues in the relationship department, along with heavy responsibilities make it harder to go to the still point that lies within. Without that sense of spiritual reinforcement, you’re like a candle in the wind, on the cusp of being blown out by things that can’t be successfully handled when your light is gone. With only a faint whiff of serenity floating in the background, it’s time to call it up and get centered enough to transcend this B.S.
