Horoscopes for January 10th – 16th, 2018
March 21 – April 20
If you’ve done your homework, what’s going on right now reflects your ability to stay in touch with the heart and soul of your experience. In that case, everything that you’ve been dreaming about has come true, or is on the verge of manifesting. Stay tuned to your instincts, because what got you this far will take you the rest of the way. If you’ve been backsliding into ego-based behaviors or giving too much credence to false beliefs, and/or the drive to be right about everything, it’ll take everything you’ve got to return to a place where you are centered and clear.
April 21 – May 20
Wait and see how things pan out. You’ve done everything you can to hold things together. Based on what you feel is important and necessary for your survival, holding things together doesn’t have to mean keeping things as they are. Life has changed. So has your perspective on it. What lies ahead will rise or fall depending on your ability to stay tuned to the current program, and upon your ability to let go when situations demand it. It does no good to force things. Towing the line only gets us so far. When it starts to snap, it’s best to wake up and call a spade a spade.
May 21 – June 20
After a long period of not knowing for sure which way the axe will fall, you are moving into a phase where it becomes important to adjust to the fact that it could all turn out in your favor. These adjustments are sure to include the idea that sometimes we have to take two steps back before we can move forward. Other themes suggest that the direct approach to anything will not yield success at this time. Your downfall will be allowing these uncertainties to discourage you. Your strength will lie in trusting life enough to know that they are, in fact, showing you the way.
June 21 – July 20
You hover between wanting to keep things the way they are, and wondering if you’ve missed your calling. Try to see this phase as the space that you occupy when you’re between one thing and the next. There’s no doubt that everything you’re doing is on the verge of change, but there’s no sense in projecting too much onto what the future might hold when everything is spinning like a top. From what I can see this period of stability is forming the foundation for things that are as yet unseen. Stay calm, remain in the moment, make the most of it, and wait on the will of heaven.
July 21 – August 20
You’ve gotten caught up in other people’s stories and other people’s stuff. If it’s working out for you, that’s OK but be wary of what it costs you to accept a codependent role. The need to be who you are has to be included in this set up. Those of you who are already clear that it’s costing you a fortune to fit in with everyone’s expectations but your own, get a grip. You didn’t come here to be a shadow. The longer you wait to face the facts the messier things will be. If it’s not too late, maybe it’s time to slip a little of your self into this equation to see if there’s room for you too.
August 21 – September 20
This is either feeling good – or – you are totally lost and confused. On some days, it goes up and down. Riding out your moods requires the ability to stay in the moment and refrain from making judgments about what’s going on. Normally disposed to have all of your ducks in a row, this state of affairs has you flummoxed. Everything is born out of chaos. Believe it or not there is order to be found in that which makes no sense. Grounding yourself is bound to require more time for yourself and the ability to lose your expectations enough to be OK with anything.
September 21 – October 20
You could use a little time out. If the opportunity arises don’t let your purse strings pinch your willingness to take off. You never know what you’ll find on the wings of serendipity; it often leads us into places that change us forever. Lots of good opportunities surround the need to stay put, but they will be here when you get back. As far as you and your loved ones go? They may not be on the same band-width right now. If that is the case, give each other plenty of space. There are definitely some issues to consider, but, more reasons to keep working on the good stuff.
October 21 – November 20
Things are looking up. After putting up with more than your share of tests, the wheels are finally moving in your direction. It even seems as if the people who have never been there for you before are all of a sudden showing up with bells on. This may have something to do with the fact that you’ve released so much baggage in the last few months. Always a work in progress, keep in mind that resting on your laurels isn’t where it’s at right now. As much as you have every reason to be proud of your achievements, keep your nose to the grindstone and your heart to the wheel.
November 21 – December 20
You are doing the inner work that lays the groundwork for what has yet to manifest. In a few months’ whatever this is about will start to show on the surface. If anything, your intentions need to be clear. New relationships, and new starts are forming in the ethers. With that in mind it will serve you to avoid people and situations that subtract from your joy and diminish your sense of what’s possible. Getting back on the ball with your sense of purpose, as well as any work that has fallen by the wayside, will require you to get real about who and what needs to stay or go.
December 21 – January 20
Wondering where things are at, and hoping for the best, is where things stand right now. It’s no sign of weakness to be this uncertain; after all, you have always known how to get things to happen. There are times when all of us have to bow to the fact that we are not in charge. Those of you who understand this are in better shape than those of you who insist on remaining in control. The outer stuff, and the place where appearances lie is where you tend to get stuck. If you can let go of your pictures, and drop the reins, everything you are doing will turn out just fine.
January 21 – February 20
The pace is about to pick up. Don’t fall asleep to the need to stay on the ball, and whatever you do, don’t slip into overconfidence. The idea that you have it made only fits when you realize that there is always more to be done. What seems to be riding on air, relative to both your work and your relationships, is subject to change. There are bound to be tests in both areas. Seeing people for what they are, and being savvy re: their weaknesses will help you navigate the days ahead. Pay attention to your intuition and be as objective as you can about who’s there for you and who isn’t.
February 21 – March 20
You’ve reached some sort of limit. Either at the peak or at the breaking point, this is a climactic time for sure. Whether you realize it or not, the sum total of all of your efforts is being fed by forces that have been guiding you since the day you were born. To lose yourself to doubt, or be overtaken by any lack of confidence will drag you down. If the pressure gets too great you may find yourself bowing to your fears, and the baser emotions that well up whenever we forget who we are. Trust your guides. To remain strong in your endeavors is more important than anything right now.
