Horoscopes for October 8 – October 14, 2015
March 21 – April 20
By the time you read this you’ll feel a whole lot better about why things went the way they did. Sometimes we get caught in the cross-fire of other people and their stuff. If we start blaming ourselves for what went wrong, we don’t stop feeling responsible for everything until we get some distance on the people, places, and things that were screwed up. This is not to say that none of this is about you; it always takes at least two people to Tango. But you had no clue, and you need to forgive yourself for being naive and for giving too many things the benefit of the doubt.
April 21 – May 20
Enough is on the line for you to be feeling a little tense. I get the feeling many of you are ready to snap. It comes down to knowing whether to quit or keep going. No one can tell you what to do, but most of the time it’s best to go with what works. You could keep pushing if you wanted to but this is no longer just about you. If in the short run it looks like you have to give something up, in the long run you will find that you were smart to get back to square one. As you watch what was stressing you out disappear for good, you will be glad that you made this choice.
May 21 – June 20
You have so much to be thankful for. In the midst of one change after another, take the time to look at what is going right. Things that have been so hard to define for the past couple of years are now looking more like what you were dreaming of. You aren’t sure how it happened but your goals are taking shape and your personal life is reflecting a sense of wholeness that feels pretty good to you. This is a plateau. Take the time to breathe. Depending on your bio-rhythms the next few weeks will see you getting to a place where whatever’s next looks even better than this.
June 21 – July 20
The pressure to conform competes with the realization that this isn’t you. Finding a way to be part of your life without sacrificing all of yourself in the act, is the trick of the Ages. There is no answer for what you’re going through now. If you have someone who’s there for you, who cares enough to help you get in touch with what will work, you are lucky. Those of you who are stuck in a situation where your life is too much at the mercy of what everyone else wants and expects will have to find a way to reckon with the part of your psyche that equates that with stability.
July 21 – August 20
Don’t think it’s your job to superintend this. You have to step back and give everything enough room to show you what it can do. The people in your life need to be left to their own devices as well. For one reason or another ‘space’ has become an issue; someone needs a little more of it than usual. Don’t be surprised if you get a chance to find out how much easier everything goes when everyone gets to be themselves. For the next few weeks you will be learning a lot about what happens when the people factor takes a back seat to the need to hook up with yourself.
August 21–September 20
The way things are going you’d do well to let everyone do what’s expedient. There’s no way you’re going to get them to live up to your need for attention when life is making it very obvious that a number of things are more important than you. To go nuts trying to reel anyone in, or think that some trick up your sleeve will make them come around is not going to work. As far as you are concerned doing as little as possible to stir the pot will get you a lot further than any bold and dangerous moves. For now, do your best to play it cool and try not to make a fool of yourself.
September 21 – October 20
You can’t be expected to carry on if every fiber of your being wants to be elsewhere. Something else is calling your name and the bigger part of you wants to rise up and meet it. There are other things floating around that have to do with how much you’ve invested in doing everything the way it’s supposed to be done. The sense that you haven’t quite figured it out, and the desire for more certainty will keep you guessing until you begin to realize that life is a lot safer and more certain when you trust it enough to know that doing it perfectly involves following your bliss.
October 21 – November 20
You would feel better about everything if you could get others to listen. You see, and sense, and know everything that’s going on, and yet no one pays attention to your well-meant advice. In this particular situation the question of what to do next doesn’t need to be decided until the next Full Moon. Between now and then, instead of trying to push your agenda you would do better to hear what other people have in mind and weigh their choices and concerns with some of your issues. If you are willing to hear them out, they will be much more receptive to you and your plans.
November 21 – December 20
The way you keep getting hit with one thing after another would be hard to figure out if I didn’t know you so well. Life would be so much easier if you didn’t feel like you weren’t the only one on the planet who could take care of it. Just as you were getting ready to break free, a series of interruptions and a lot of long standing issues made you lose sight of the fact that you had other plans. I am in no position to tell you how to do things but, you’ve got to find a way to fit yourself into your life. Let yourself of the hook and let everyone else find the strength to fix themselves.
December 21 – January 20
You have gone out of your way, so far above and beyond the call of duty, it’s hard to figure out why the need to keep proving yourself is so out of control. There’s a lot riding on this to be sure. What would make it easier would be to start to realize that you can’t lose – because even if you fall flat on your face, it only means that whatever you have set your sights on wasn’t meant to be. In order for you to be able to function within the uncertainties that are so much a part of your life right now, you need to be able to surrender to the thought that you could live without this.
January 21 – February 20
Change is in the wind. You’re not sure what it means but you sense that something is about to inject a little novelty and excitement into your life. For the longest time there’s been enough of the same old thing and a little too much certainty. For someone to whom regular walks on the wild side are actually therapeutic, you will incur no penalty by stepping out of the box every now and then. At this point anything would do. And the picture that keeps coming to mind is one which includes you in a new setting, with a totally different outlook and a new lease on life.
February 21 – March 20
You keep trying to skirt the issue; if it isn’t that, you’re avoiding whatever you can’t confront. For someone whose warrior spirit is always there when you need it, at the moment you’re having a tough time coming up with the strength to look yourself in the eye. At any other time you might be able to get away with this, but life seems to be requiring more from you these days. You need to question the gap that exists between who you think you are and who you turned out to be before you can get around the stuff that keeps you from being able to identify what you want.
