Horoscopes for Jan. 30th – Feb. 5th, 2019
March 21 – April 20
Everything has just reached critical mass. This is either feeling bad or good, depending on how much of the truth you have been willing to face. Those of you who have made it through the gauntlet with your integrity intact are probably breathing a sigh of relief that you’ve passed all these tests with flying colors. Those of you who have copped out, played the blame game, or taken the spiritual bypass that allowed you to excuse your denial mechanisms, are in the belly of the beast, with one last chance to get real enough to reckon with the consequences of your actions.
April 21 – May 20
Dealing with one nut job after another has taught you enough about human nature to merit a degree in psychotherapy. Between the people you work with, and for, and the people who love you, there is a 3 ring circus of agendas and affairs that makes you wonder why you chose this instead of something a little less intense. I am here to remind you that intensity is your middle name. You are exactly where you need to be at the moment – and for some reason your presence in this situation makes you vital to it, and vital to any prayer it has for turning out for the best.
May 21 – June 20
You’ve been working too hard to notice that your emotional needs are in the back seat. More than a few months of this have made it clear that you need some fresh air. At the point where duty and responsibility go over the top, there is an opening that allows us to see what we really need. You’re just about there. None of what’s become too important is as big as you’ve made it. Loosening your attachments and getting far enough away from the fray to make room for a little life to trickle in will open the space for all of this pressure to give birth to things that are lasting and real.
June 21 – July 20
You are still here doing what’s expected, but you have the strange feeling that something else is getting ready to pop up and change all of this. The gears are in neutral and you are definitely primed for something beyond what’s been in your face for the last few years. The need to dispel your anxiety, along with the thought that none of us are ever 100% sure we’re on the right track, will go a long way to letting you be OK with sitting back and watching the show. How things play out will depend entirely on whether or not you are able to let life show you where to go.
July 21 – August 20
You need to settle down long enough to get your bearings. So much has been swirling around you, it’s been hard to stay grounded enough to know where you’re at. The gap between what’s really going on and who you think you are is abysmal. In order to get to the next step you’re going to have to switch to decaf and face things for what they are. It is no longer appropriate to dramatize your situation, nor is it OK to keep using the same old methods to try to heal things that have been there forever. A big reality check is in order. Be brave enough to face things head on.
August 21 – September 20
Too many things are showing you how amazing life gets when we shut up and start paying attention. The signals are everywhere and you guys can’t afford to be looking the other way. People have arrived who have turned into guides, or teachers, or guardians and they have come to redirect your focus. Changing direction, and/or moving into areas of self-expression that force you to redefine both your goals and whoever you think you are, has turned your world into a whirlwind of possibilities that need to be fully examined before you can decide what to do.
September 21 – October 20
Hold steady enough to hear people out. It’s time to take their needs and interests into account. As you process whatever they have to share, it will become clear that you’ve been out of touch with who you thought they were for a long, long time. The next few weeks will require you to adjust to all of this. It will be mind blowing to have to figure out if you can be yourself in this situation. It’s usually the case that the person who is averse to change needs it even more than the one who’s rocking the boat. Take a deep breath and consider the virtues of changing your tune, or your mind.
October 21 – November 20
You have had your share of ups and downs. At this point you feel totally hooked on the idea that everything is “your fault.” This makes it hard to see the truth. In regularly timed cycles everything in your life is slated to get shaken and stirred; that’s just the way it is. What you assume is a sign that you are screwing things up, is in fact, the way that you move from one phase of experience to the next. Don’t waste one more minute mourning what’s lost. What just flew out the window or fell apart at the seams was meant to get you off your fanny and on to the next thing.
November 21 – December 20
Stay tuned to opportunities because they’re going to be popping up everywhere. A lot of what’s about to open up will happen where you least expect to find it. One of the keys to making things click has to do with getting out of your comfort zone. Invitations to do even the most mundane things will yield more than you can imagine. And if anyone invites you to take off on a trip or wants you to sign up for a seminar, know that the Lords of Serendipity are there to put you in the right place at the right time. Who knows? In a year or less you could be totally free, clear, and out of here!
December 21 – January 20
You could look at this a million different ways. If every crisis is an opportunity to correct mistakes that we made long before everything blew up in our face, your current state of emergency could be seen as a blessing. Reflecting back on the last few years it might help you to zero in on the moment when you went off the rails, or out of integrity. Life has its own way of getting us back on track. If you’re on top of this situation it’s because you’ve learned your lesson. If you’re still wringing your hands, wondering “Why me?” it’ll be a while before things settle down.
January 21 – February 20
You are fine. Stop using all your mental energy worrying about how this is going to go. With more than enough support, you will find some unusual people coming out of the woodwork. It’s up to you to know who’s here to help and who’s here to make things harder. Those close to your situation care enough to go out of their way. Others are totally out for themselves. As long as you are smart enough to know who’s who, and are able to keep your ego in check, you will be free and clear within a month or three. Keep your nose to the grindstone and let hard work free your mind.
February 21 – March 20
If you haven’t already done so, you’re just about to drop the hammer on people who have been sucking your energy and your resources for far too long. As much as the softie in you feels bad about it, the situation has gotten ridiculous, to the point where the tail is wagging the dog. Don’t worry about what will happen to them. The karma that goes with sucking people dry is theirs and theirs alone. With these parasites gone for good, you are now in a position to move forward unencumbered by the weight of people and things that kept all of your best efforts from coming to fruition.
