Horoscopes for January 22 – January 28, 2015
March 21 – April 20
You see enough about what’s going on to know exactly what’s at work. Nobody has you fooled. Your issues have more to do with the lengths that you go to, to fool yourself. In the end, you know you’re going to have to get to the bottom of all of this. Too many distractions make it easy to obscure the truth with whatever you do when you let it slide. I wish I could tell you how this will go. It’s not up to me. In your position it comes down to finding a way to co-exist and have everyone else be OK with the fact that whatever’s going on has to be done on your terms.
April 21 – May 20
No one prepares us for the tough stuff. Finding our way through it produces a form of painful magic that transforms us. You knew you would have to face this before you were born – and you know that you needed the lesson. Learning how to consider the uses of adversity is the only way to endure things of this nature. Find the beauty in it. If those of you who resonate with what I am saying can find the beauty in it, you’ll have it made. Those of you who are on an upswing are looking at a mirror image of all of the above. Now that you can see the light, it’s safe to go for it.
May 21 – June 20
Only you can play this many ends to the middle. Your survival depends on having so many faces, finding yourself in it all has even you wondering; how do you do it? If you’re in a partnership, your partner is having a tough time knowing who they’re with, from one day to the next. As far as your own stuff goes, it’s on the back burner as usual because everything else is more important. The next time you have a minute, say a little prayer to the one who watches over you, and ask them to give you a sign that you’re still here, in one piece, and on the right path.
June 21 – July 20
It’s time to make a move and you are in a place where it won’t work to act like a deer in the headlights. This is one of those times when he who hesitates is lost. Too much input from those who are clueless about who you are and what you’re up against has blurred your ability to focus on the facts. It doesn’t matter if it’s time to split, move, or quit, the standard route is one that can’t be taken at this point. Give yourself a week or so to get clear and begin to get real about how this is going to go. If others are involved in this, it could be their take on things that clears the way.
July 21 – August 20
If anyone had told you, you would wind up having to deal with this you would never have believed it. The need to be all things to all people could be giving you a headache. As you try to figure out how to take care of it all the bigger part of you is just about ready to take up smoking! There are times when there appears to be no way out. If the desire to escape keeps you pitted against those who need you more than anything, ask yourself why this paradox is the main theme in your ‘story’, and get behind the idea that it’s always been your choice to be needed this much.
August 21–September 20
What can I say? It would be easy to tell you to spark it up, get off your butt, and/or, find a good reason to change the scenery, but other things have intervened to keep your nose to the grindstone. That’s OK. If you can hold the thought that even this, is subject to change, you will see that you are ready to turn things around, one way or another. Being subject to external constraints will keep you in a holding pattern for a while. It may be necessary to take a super serious approach to your work affairs until life opens the space for the next ship to come in.
September 21 – October 20
LIBRA: September 21 – October 20
You keep looking outside yourself for answers to things that have made it hard to function. Every trick in the book doesn’t seem to be working; neither do all your attempts to micromanage issues that have nagged your ass for a good 8 or 10 years. Pardon my French, but you’ve had plenty of time to figure out how to walk your talk and find the answers within. Your addiction to money and the thought that more of it will make everything alright tells me that you have forgotten what you know. It’s time to dig a little deeper. This’ll fly if it’s done from the inside out.
October 21 – November 20
You keep so much to yourself it’s hard to tell how all of this sits with you. As more than one person tries to dissect your motives you are either blissfully unaware, or playing your cards right. Having been accused of things that stem from other people’s fears, and their paranoia, many of you are being targeted with stuff that has nothing to do with you. At the moment you are in the crosshairs of issues that could easily wipe a lesser mortal out. Keep the faith, my friend. It’s your integrity that has everyone flummoxed. Stay true to it and no one will have any power over you.
November 21 – December 20
The next time you give anyone more credit than they deserve see if you can flip back to this moment. All of a sudden you are faced with the fact that you don’t see eye to eye. It would be less of a shock if you had paid attention to the signs from the very beginning. Now that you’re here, the lesson is about beginning to realize that it’s not about being on the same page; it’s about being able to accept the idea that there are times when you’re not. Don’t waste too much energy trying to be right. If you can figure out how to agree to disagree things will turn out for the best.
December 21 – January 20
In the act of empowering yourself the main pitfall has taken you to a place that is making it hard for you to enact ANY of your plans. These difficulties have brought out the beast in things. As you try to find your way out of this entanglement it comes down to dropping every pretense, and knowing enough about yourself to see when the ego isn’t willing to let you go. The next few weeks will see you plowing through the wreckage and healing what’s left of a situation that has gone off the rails. A good long look in the mirror will show you that it’s your turn to let go.
January 21 – February 20
The next time you decide to pass judgment, point the finger, or criticize anyone, turn it around and look at the extent to which the same things could be said about you. Not to be a jerk, but you keep casting blame on people and things and you know better. We have all reached the place where the need to forgive and forget is imperative. You are the one who holds the standard for unconditional love and acceptance. Open your heart to the ones who’ve let you down. You have to take the high road. None of us have time for any of the BS that keeps us separate and alone.
February 21 – March 20
Don’t let yourself be fooled by your own misconceptions. It’s been too long and you’re getting too old and too smart to be stuck to your illusions. As far as that goes, it doesn’t matter who’s fooling who. Lost in a maelstrom of mixed messages, you’ve finally woken up to the idea that either, you’ve been taken for a ride, or none of this is working. Don’t hesitate to cut ties and move on, and try to get behind the fact that whatever’s going on is an initiation of sorts. You can only get through things like this by dropping the reins and allowing your life to turn into a vision quests.
