Horoscopes for August 22nd – 28th, 2018
March 21 – April 20
The need to be receptive to alternative methods, alternative approaches, and alternative people is all over your story right now. To adhere too hard to the party line will keep you stuck and make it nearly impossible to make the most of this moment in time. On any other day I might tell you to let caution reign over impulse, but right now your impulsive streak could be seen as an asset. The call to break away from the past, from your fears, and from any anger or guilt that remains from whatever did not go well is ready to release you to go your own way and begin all over again.
April 21 – May 20
You have so much going for you. What you decide to make of it is totally up to you. The relationship picture is full of surprises. It could mean that you have more than one option, and it could mean that your partner is always showing up with more than you can handle. If you think it’s your job to stabilize whatever the situation is, maybe so. I have a feeling that the surprise factor is really there to light a fire under your butt, and move you to let your truer calling come out of the box. Anything is possible. With all this light shining through, who knows what will get lit up?
May 21 – June 20
It’s time to put your heart to the wheel and, instead of paying lip service, get down to the business of living your truth. Lots of changes are in order. At the moment all of us are subject to conditions that will knock down anything that is rooted in falsehood. You are about to see if what you have created is worthy enough to stand the test of time. The money issue is huge. Don’t make it too important. There is a saying that goes: ‘When we are doing our sacred work, Nature is the mother of Charity.” Remaining in alignment with your purpose is what matters right now.
June 21 – July 20
You’ve been holding your own in a situation where too many questions could have led you to believe that you are missing the boat. Nothing is ever what it seems. The only thing that matters is that we keep our shoulder to the wheel, and show up at the well every day to add a drop of water to the endless stream of energy that courses through our lives. You had no way of knowing where things would wind up, and now here you are, at the point where everything you’ve put your heart to has turned out for the best. Don’t let your fears, or the opinions of others steal your thunder.
July 21 – August 20
All the phony-baloney BS that keeps you rubbing shoulders with your ego needs to go. As much as you have whatever it takes to play these games, they take you away from yourself and make it impossible to get real. What really matters right now has more to do with finding the light within. In the next few weeks there are bound to be situations that pull you away from that thought and trick you into believing that the limelight, and all of its trappings are where you belong. Don’t kid yourself. The deeper part of you, and its eternal flame, is where your light shines.
August 21 – September 20
What matters most as time goes on has everything to do with maintaining your integrity. If you have a pitfall, it relates to believing that there is a specific path, or one way, that will get you where you need to go. For any one of us, the road home is unique to who we are, and it exists relative to our Karma. Don’t expect anyone to tell you how it’s supposed to go, and know enough to pay attention to what your life is telling you. The future is written from moment to moment. Time and experience are the only teachers here. How things turn out depends upon being a good student.
September 21 – October 20
You are cruising along with more strength than you’ve had in a long time, doing your best to show up and be 100% there for all the things that matter. Part of you is surprised that you got this lucky. The deeper part of you knows that you’ve earned it. All the waiting, and all the hard knocks have come full circle. How good will things get? That all depends on what you make of them. Something new and different is ready to shine through. This could involve the need to put yourself in totally different circumstances where the past doesn’t interfere with the freedom to be yourself.
October 21 – November 20
When we are flying our highest and feeling our best there is always a sense of insecurity surrounding the exuberance. Sometimes, the sense of insecurity obscures the fact that life doesn’t get any better than this – but no matter which end of this stick you’re on, it would be great if you could settle into the heart of the situation and see what needs to happen next. Getting out of your head long enough to stop asking questions will open the space for the answers to come. Whether you see it or not, the future is wide open. Stretch yourself and get big enough to rise up and meet it.
November 21 – December 20
When we reach the point where everything has to change we either wake up or we don’t. You are crossing that line as we speak. This is all taking place in a process that will unfold over the next six months. What happens next is anyone’s guess. There is no one-size-fits-all answer that will cover all of you. Suffice it to say that you have to take a sharp right or a sharp left or you will walk right off the cliff. Dealing with overbearing people who don’t know when to quit is a big item for many of you. Standing your ground and taking life by the horns is where it’s at right now.
December 21 – January 20
Your life is full of requirements that cause you to get involved with a series of debacles. The lesson is always meant to hone your spiritual qualities and to teach you what it means to serve at the altar of your own presence. What winds up happening is that you go above and beyond the call of duty and wind up getting sacrificed. All of this is getting highlighted now – and it will be interesting to watch over the next few months. Don’t get lost in the idea that it looks like it’s time to throw in the towel. When all of this is over you could wind up with exactly what you want.
January 21 – February 20
You’re having problems with people who don’t see eye to eye. The tendency to avoid those we disagree with is understandable, until you realize that they are only there to show you where you stand. In the end, it’s more valuable to steer clear of open conflict and get better at connecting at the heart level. If this sounds a little too “woo-woo” for you, keep in mind that we are not what we think. You miss out on life’s deeper possibilities when you draw ideological lines. As time goes on you will begin to see that separation kills us, and that in all things, love is the operative words.
February 21 – March 20
Sitting here, looking at the choices that are arrayed in front of you, you would feel a whole lot better about it if you had the wisdom of Solomon at your fingertips. The issue revolves around how to heal a situation that went off the rails a long time ago. It could be that it’s about not knowing what it will take to heal others, or it could be about not knowing how to resolve your own mess. Either way, it will help once you begin to understand that Rome wasn’t built in a day. Give everything time to show you what is needed and let your heart take you the rest of the way.
