Horoscopes for August 17th – August 23rd, 2016


March 21 – April 20

How far things will go is a good question. You wish you knew. Deep down inside you want this more than anything. Your entire life has brought you this far. Now that you’re here you see for the first time that this will only come to fruition if your ego gets moved onto the back burner long enough for your soul to see you through. Being who you really are is what it comes down to. The voice in your head keeps telling you to stay on top of things. On some level, maybe that will help, but the way I see it, you’re spinning all of this from a much more instinctive place.


April 21 – May 20

Between a rock and a hard place there is no choice but to become like water. Too many external influences have too much to say about who you need to be. Deep down inside the part of you who knows who you are is waiting patiently for your fears to recede, far enough for you to swim into a new definition of yourself. So much of this is imaginary. The laws of physics tell us that “Higher frequencies displace lower frequencies.” As you come face to face with what seems to matter more than anything, know that the forces that assail you have no power over you.


May 21 – June 20

Miracles never cease. From one day to the next you feel like there’s an angel on your shoulder making everything all right. This is a new experience for some of you. As the sense of protection and support increases you are beginning to see that all of the stress that you’ve had to sustain has given way to a deeper understanding. The meaning behind all of this has reinforced something, something that is unique to each of you. For the first time in your life the desire to take the high road is opening the space to make amends with those whose trust in you has been mislaid.


June 21 – July 20

The money piece is going up or down, depending on which way the tide is running in your neck of the woods. You are no stranger to the way things go up and down. Recent encounters with people who matter more than anything have changed your tune. When love is the operative word sometimes you need to rely upon forgiveness to bridge the gap that spans between you. Finding yourself in a place where peace and harmony live on the other side of letting go, will inspire you to move to higher ground. Stay true. Within 2 months there will be blessings beyond measure.


July 21 – August 20

All of a sudden a whole new story is unfolding and you are feeling more support from what’s around you than you’ve felt in a long time. Being ready for the next thing includes the sense that you can take care of it yourself. It’s safe to take chances. Inasmuch as you’re inside a ring of fire, you aren’t being burnt. On the contrary: life and whatever your experience looks like, is changing the core of your being. The creative element, the extent to which love comes into play, and the presence of children, and joyfulness are lit up will line the roadside as you continue to find your way.


August 21–September 20

The path is opening up to things that have been a long time coming. You have been working harder and longer, with more dedication than the average bear. Coming to terms with what years of experience amount to, at this point you are clear that your heart has to pour into something that rings true for you. Money isn’t necessarily the only measure of what things are worth. As the seasons change you will weigh in on what matters to you more than anything. Your abilities are endless. It comes down to embodying them fully and completely. Stay focused on what you love.


September 21 – October 20

You have just made it through a test that was meant to strengthen your commitment to either yourself, or to a cause that is meant to bring you closer to your purpose. Moving onward and upward is bound to expose you to more than your share of idiots. With lots of support surrounding you, this lesson is about remaining in a state of integrity, physically, emotionally, and mentally, no matter what’s going on. There is nothing to fear. You have a cache of good credit with whoever’s upstairs. Knowing what matters and staying true to yourself is the key.


October 21 – November 20

You can’t be bothered with the small stuff. You’ve got more enormous things to contend with. Heavy demands at a time when making both ends meet is harder than usual, have you wondering how your life got to be too full of things that weigh you down. Health issues could be part of this. If so, you may need a second opinion. Changes in your life style, along with the need to eliminate parasitic people could be high on your list of things to do. Only you know what you need. Your choices are clear. Don’t let anyone tell you that they know what’s best for you.


November 21 – December 20

How this goes is dancing on the edge of a double edged sword. What could go either way has you stressed out in a way that keeps your worst fears in the spotlight. There is no way to know for sure how all of this will eventually come down. The seeds that it contains were sown seven to 14 years ago. If there are father issues, those threads are significant. To unravel this mystery, it will help you to remember that it took years for the saga to get this complicated. Unraveling and reviewing the stories that fill it, will eventually clear the way to success.


December 21 – January 20

Scrambling around, going through whatever it takes to make the best of this, you are feeling strong enough to reckon with the fact that it’s hard to stay on top of life when the internal piece is on shaky ground. The truth about things is on its way to the surface. There is no need to fear whatever it contains. The last 4 years are merging into a image that will show you what needs to happen now that you have been totally shaken down. At the bottom of this well, the heart of a new beginning beats in unison with the part of you that knows that you came here for this.


January 21 – February 20

The perfect storm is converging in the form of everything all at once, and you are living through a high water mark of major proportions. What comes out of this will yield more goodness than you can shake a stick at. Whatever it took to get here has been worth it. As the dust settles, it’ll be a few more weeks before you see the reason you and yours have landed in this spot. Dealing with others who have too much to say about your attitude and your choices will require you to know more about their issues than they do. Keep up the good work. You are almost home.


February 21 – March 20

Don’t be put out by people who have too much going on to be there for you. In this situation it’s too much to expect. It would make more sense for you to stop chasing windmills long enough to see that you have better things to do. Being swept away, trusting people who don’t deserve half of the credit you give to them, and forgetting the fact that your purpose doesn’t include copping out, or falling asleep at the switch—all of these things exist as potential pitfalls right now. It just so happens to be show time. Too much is at stake. The high road is right in front of you.
