Horoscopes for September 11 – 17, 2014
March 21 – April 20
You keep yourself in a better groove when your attitude isn’t taxed by those who push your buttons. Lately the tests of patience have wound up a hair away from coming to blows. Between the things that piss you off and thoughts that make you realize how important it is to just be still and know that you are God, you’re feeling a little schizophrenic. The trick lies in being able to detach. Whatever gets your dander up is always there for your benefit. How you choose to deal with things is the heart of the lesson. Be sure to watch your temper, and your ass this week.
April 21 – May 20
When you’re caught by the shorthairs it is less excruciating once you lose the idea that it’ll kill you. Getting your comeuppance has brought so many things into focus, it’s a blessing that you are finally ready to look at whatever you couldn’t see before the whip came down. With so much riding on whether or not you can be there for it, everything is on the line. You need to look at what you’re doing and make decisions as to whether or not everyone’s best interests will be served by whatever takes you above and beyond the call of duty. True clarity will take time.
May 21 – June 20
You’re starting to wonder how you managed to get this to fly. The whole ball of wax has taken off. Without really knowing what happened you find yourself in a position that anyone would envy. What’s hitting you at the moment has to do with figuring out what you’re going to do for your next trick. Others are relying upon you to come up with something, and do the next right thing. Whatever you do, don’t let your private agenda over ride the common good. There is way more at stake than you and yours, so keep the faith and let your conscience be your guide.
June 21 – July 20
Being overrun with considerations that make it hard to enjoy yourself is getting old. The choice to remain steady and true isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but for many of you, it’s getting to the point where there’s no end in sight. If there was a chance for a reprieve, it would be totally OK to keep putting your shoulder to the wheel, or keep dishing out the patience that seems to be required of you now. Outside of that, I would say any situation that keeps sucking you dry will only get worse. These circumstances will render you useless if you let them eat you alive.
July 21 – August 20
If you’ve got a Tiger by the Tail it’s either feeling pretty good or you’re wishing things would settle down. In this situation your appetite for excitement may be a little less active than whoever or whatever is giving you the run around. At times like this there is no prescription that will work in every situation. Playing hardball won’t cut it and neither will it behoove you to roll over and play dead. A little quantum Aikido and a strategy that allows you to step back and let others show you what they’re made of would be the method I would choose in this set of circumstances.
You are in the middle of something huge. Regardless of how much action is going on, on the surface, your entire reality is rolling around, getting ready for the next big thing. Holding steady is essential, but you can’t get too stuck in any one position because like I said, it’s all turning around. Your wish to make what’s going on even better includes the potential for a move, or a change of pace that will allow you to have your cake and eat it too. Recent revelations have shown you so much re; what’s really important, you are ready to go for it with both guns blazing.
September 21 – October 20
You have your reasons for wanting to break loose. If it isn’t the Seven-year-Itch, it’s the idea that there has to be more to life than this. I didn’t come here to lecture you on the virtues of sticking to it, but I have a few things to say re: waiting till you’ve got your feet on the ground before you do anything rash. Others are patient when it comes to certain things, and they are willing to give you as much space as you need. At this point all you really need to do is look at what you want and tell the truth about it. This could be a win-win situation once you decide to tell it like it is.
October 21 – November 20
You can’t get anyone to see what they don’t want to see. Don’t waste your time trying to make it work for everyone, and don’t shoot yourself in the foot by being too concerned with making sure everyone knows where you stand. Discretion is the better part of valor. This is one of those situations that calls for a willingness to let time sort out the truth. Watch what happens as others choose to come to terms with it, or not. The only thing you need to be mindful of is your own truth. Hold steady and don’t go crazy proving your point until you’re sure your back’s to the wall.
November 21 – December 20
You have so much going for you you’d be nuts to let your issues interfere with all of the opportunities that lie at your feet right now. Openings, and the likelihood of changes that come as a total surprise are here to pave the way for a total revamp of whatever it is that makes you think you know who you are. As things accelerate, do your best to keep the light on and remain open to the ways in which others have as much to say about all of this as you do. Make room for them and don’t be afraid to join forces with those who share a similar point of view.
December 21 – January 20
It’s amazing how hard it is to come clean with ourselves, especially when the emotional piece is over the top. Don’t fall prey to the need to prop others up with too much support, or give anyone more credit than they deserve. You have too much that is about to pop in the work arena to get bogged down with codependent games in situations that keep you running around like a chicken with your head cut off. Real life doesn’t sound like such a bad idea. If you haven’t lost touch with what that is for you, reconnecting to your truer longings will help you find your way back to it.
January 21 – February 20
You have the usual round of issues making life look like nothing has changed. Underneath it all things have shifted, far enough away from what was going on a year ago to a point where you have more freedom, and/or can at least be philosophical about it. As the past and any regrets you have about the way things went fade in the face of forgiveness, you can see how subtle changes in perspective alter the scenery magically, with no effort at all. Keep going with the flow and begin to embrace the notion that the universe is here to loan its support to everything you do.
February 21 – March 20
If you’ve got kids, chances are they have been taking up more of your time. The extent to which you need to be there for them is being underscored by conditions that no one could have foreseen. The chance to strengthen that bond is where it’s at and so is the need to keep yourself heavily focused in the work arena. With all of your energy going out, it becomes important to see where it’s coming back in. I don’t need to remind you that your tendency to be the giver who keeps on giving needs to be balanced with equal parts of whatever it takes to replenish your soul.
