Horoscopes for September 28th – October 4th, 2016
March 21 – April 20
Everything just flipped. Suddenly a whole new state of affairs has replaced what was there before; you are off and running. It could be a new job, a new relationship, or a new location; it doesn’t matter – the point is that after several years of chipping away at your life and your issues, something new and incredible has popped out of the Jack-in-the-Box. There are no instructions for what to do from here on out. Your instincts and your senses will tell you which way to go. Keep showing up, pay attention to the signs, keep your head on straight, and don’t mess this up.
April 21 – May 20
You keep trying to control things that may not need to be controlled. If you feel like you’ve got to stay on top of the situation, ask yourself “Why” and look at what it’s getting you. Sometimes it’s safer to let go of the catch and let nature take its course. There are a lot of reasons why you hesitate to let down your guard and they will only make sense for as long as it takes you to wake up and realize that you can’t keep doing this. Whatever this means to you, the message is all about taking a novel approach and trusting life enough to let love override your defenses.
May 21 – June 20
The light is shining on you. It doesn’t matter if you believe in these things or not; you’ve got more healing and spiritual support than you’ve had in a long time. It may be too late but it would be good if you could reflect on a few things and see that you were in error. This is no time to be stubborn; if you need to make amends do so. It appears as if you allowed your issues to win out over the truth in this situation. All of us fall prey to this. Getting conscious enough to do the right thing, even when it’s the last thing we want to do is one of the most difficult parts of being human.
June 21 – July 20
If everything is the opposite of what it appears to be, this isn’t as bad as it looks. However things seem to you, the need to stop judging your circumstances, will help to take the edge off things that are less of an issue than you’re making them. You are half an inch a way from a reprieve and some measure of success in areas that have been troublesome until now. If there is a move is on the horizon it’s because you’re done here, or because you’re investing in your future. Expanding beyond the limits that the last 6 years have imposed, you’d do well to err on the side of caution.
July 21 – August 20
You’ve got your hands full dealing with what other people can’t handle. Part of you is good with all of this. Another part of you secretly wishes you knew enough to get out before the s*** hit the fan. Those who keep needing more from you are teaching you a lot about the power of love. If the mark of a spiritually evolved person lies in their ability to tolerate the weaknesses of others, you could be running a close second to the Buddha. Keep your heart focused on whatever this dream of yours involves and don’t let the pressures of the moment make you lose sight of it.
August 21–September 20
You are overwhelmed but in control. Do your best to keep a lid on the compulsive tendencies that tend to tie you up in knots. With too much on your plate, and less energy than usual, keeping your balance is bound to be tricky. These distractions seem chaotic. Internally you are either steady and cool, or nervously hyperactive. Notice the extent to which your energy gets sucked up in details that don’t matter enough to keep you awake at night. It would be great if you could lighten up, and give those who don’t meet your standards as much room to grow as you give yourself.
September 21 – October 20
You wonder what to do about your current affairs. It will help you to know that they take good care of themselves when we get out of the way and pay attention to whatever it takes to handle what’s next. You are at a huge crossroads. Under certain illusions, not just about yourself, but about life in general, you can’t make any long term decisions when your life is tied up in knots. Unless there is a good reason to leave, you’d do well to stay put and stabilize yourself, until you get a clear sign from the Karmic telegraph that you have enough strength and clarity to move on.
October 21 – November 20
You could be throwing pearls before swine. It’s hard to say. I hate to sound negative, especially when the prospects are looking so good, but it might be time to haul back before you let it all go and jump into this. Themes that suggest you could get used make me wish I could talk sense into you. The Good Samaritan impulse has its place, but, our best intentions are known to lead straight to Hell. You’ve got more than one form of pressure squeezing your perceptions. It will help if you stop long enough to consider your own interests and see what you want out of this.
November 21 – December 20
Starting over again, at a point when there doesn’t seem to be enough momentum to get anywhere, you’re wondering if you’re crazy to be doing this. Every time you turn it around, you realize that you’d be crazy not to. It’s one of those times when following your heart doesn’t have to make sense. For many of you the new beginning will open the space for the long awaited dream to unfold. Don’t let negative influences discourage you from going for it. And don’t let the idea that you haven’t got the resources get in the way. You will make this work – because it’s time.
December 21 – January 20
You keep putting the focus on the relationship area, either because there’s no one in it, or because you’re having a hard time dealing with the people who are. Either way, your attention is not on yourself and you’re going nuts trying to fix a crazy situation. Those closest to you are out to lunch. The last time you connected you began to see that you are like ships passing in the night. If you happen to be single the sense of solitude is overwhelming. It would help to take a deep breath and find solace in the infinite. If you meditate, it’s time to sit cross-legged and go within.
January 21 – February 20
Within all of the good things that have fallen into your lap, the hassles of the last few month have been off the charts. As the issues that led to a lot of complication unravel, you will be freed up to put your attention on your own stuff. Being immersed in a work scenario that is as stimulating as it is demanding is what’s really turning you on. There is a promotion on the menu. There could even be a totally new position. Jupiter is on your side; this new state of affairs will put you in a position to hook up with the right people and find out more about what your future will be.
February 21 – March 20
You’re in way over your head. How you got here is a good question. Chained to your circumstances, what seemed like a good idea at the time feels more like a booby-trap. For the time being there is nothing you can do but remain where you are. The impulse for change is definitely there, but there’s nothing you can do about it until body heals up and your vision becomes clear. Being willing and able to acquiesce is part of the lesson. Between a rock and a hard place, the need to be like water is imperative. It’s a good thing that you are an expert at this.
