Horoscopes for January 2nd – 8th, 2019
March 21 – April 20
Things couldn’t be better. You keep reminding yourself that this isn’t you and your rose-colored-glasses; this time it just might be the real thing. While I’m all for the idea that you need this to be your dream come true, I also need to caution you when it comes to seeing what you want to see. The sense that there is some picture of perfection that is supposed to be connected to the way your life looks and feels has nothing to do with the way things work. And what you think you want pales in comparison to the way things could be if you could learn how to embrace all of it.
April 21 – May 20
The weight of whatever made you feel like there was no way out has opened up to more than one way of seeing things. If too many variables conspire to keep you from knowing which row to hoe, you need to remind yourself that all you have to do is remain open to the next possibility and let IT show you the way. Life isn’t something we do. At this point yours has more to do with remembering that the master plan is always subject to change – and it doesn’t pay to get too stuck on having anything remain a certain way. The need to be totally open can’t be overemphasized.
May 21 – June 20
You could be feeling like a gigantic catcher’s mitt, for everyone and their problems; what can I say? This isn’t the first time you’ve had to do it all. Are you waking up to the fact that you’re done with this nonsense? I’m not sure how to advise you but I can see that the whole question of having better things to do is making you wonder how much you really owe this situation. People will keep taking and expecting until you decide to turn off the faucet. And unless there’s a good reason to keep doing it all, maybe it’s time to figure out what it means to “do it for you.”
June 21 – July 20
Your anxieties can get the best of you. At times the level of intensity is overwhelming. When you slow it all down and step back from the things that seem so important, everything falls into place. Being true to yourself will require you to see that you may need to stop playing games and get real about the way things feel instead of letting your perfect pictures work over-time making everything ‘nicey-nice’. The signs are easy to read. Before you can find your way you’re going to have to drop your mask and engage with the stuff that keeps running your life from within.
July 21 – August 20
This stretch of Karma has been rough and it’s taken you all over the place. Don’t be surprised if a few weeks of smooth sailing gives you a chance to regroup and really look at your situation. Lots of choices, and perhaps too many options are here to test your ability to see what matters in the long run. The fire in your eye, and the one in your heart have you dreaming up all kinds of possibilities. Chasing windmills will get you nowhere. At this point, you’d do better to gather your strength and get grounded enough to be 100% there for what lies up on the road ahead.
August 21 – September 20
Old stuff keeps reminding you how easy it is to let it get to you. The old story, the one that you’ve been hauling around forever, is about to get a facelift that’ll put you in a different place with ALL of it. Don’t mistake what seems to be coming up for review as any sign that you’re losing ground. This is such a delicate moment, even you, the one who is always so sure and so right, are clear that something is changing course. For better or worse you’re here to see where this goes. Be ever mindful of the need to stay 100% honest and willing to do the next right thing.
September 21 – October 20
You are managing a delicate situation as best you can. It hasn’t been easy trying to figure out what’s going on here, but after the last 6 months you’ve managed to put things together in a way that passes inspection. If there are problems, they seem to be coming from the fact that people have misrepresented themselves. You could not have seen this coming so don’t spend too much time flagellating yourself for not being perfect. What happens next depends on how long it takes to replace a few bad apples. Once you fix things, you’ll be free to move on and get this to work.
October 21 – November 20
You know it’s time for a change but the one you feel like making could be too drastic. These things all depend on where you’re at with yourself. In some cases it may be totally appropriate to cut loose and take off for parts unknown. For others, it could be more about sticking around and making real improvements instead of rearranging the furniture and calling it change. You guys are famous for glossing things over so don’t think you can pretend you’re ready for this if you’re still stuck on the notion that you’re sense of responsibility matters more than living your truth.
November 21 – December 20
The last few weeks have taught you so much about the power of love. Your willingness to take the high road has made everything easier. From here on out there will be enough positive energy to keep moving you forward. The need for realism about yourself and others can’t be overemphasized. This is one of those times when you need to be more conscious of other people’s stuff than they are. If you’re too naive, or too blind to face their complications, don’t blame me when what they have yet to see about themselves throws a monkey wrench into your plans.
December 21 – January 20
You have your own way of relating to yourself; no one has the right to interfere with that. The idea that you need to make any sort of compromise is ringing up all kinds of stuff. For better or worse, you’re willing to go along with the show, but before you do, you might want to turn the tables and ask whoever’s telling you how it goes why they’re in charge. It’s one thing to be open and caring and quite another to use that MO to manipulate and control. You don’t need this much supervision. Tell whoever’s watching your every move to get off your back and deal with themselves.
January 21 – February 20
Too many influences vie for your attention. It would be so great if you could eliminate some of this, but it’s one of those times when you’ve got to hang on or get blown away. Depending on how your thoughts are running, life is either looking like a dream, or feeling more like a psycho-drama. You always have more going on inside and out, than the average human being. Managing your own energy, and being objective enough to ride its waves without going to extremes will allow you to channel all of your light into a situation that needs all of you to be there for it.
February 21 – March 20
You’re caught up in a dilemma that isn’t as confusing as you make it. So much of who you are has been altered by time and experience, the story that goes along with it has to change too. Any sense that you need to be clinging to choices that were made prior to this moment is up for review. Issues that revolve around how long to wait, how much time to give it, and the idea that others seem to be heavily involved in all of your choices, underscores the fact that it may be time to pull away, just long enough to figure out who you are and what you really want out of this.
