Horoscopes for January 8 – January 14, 2015
March 21 – April 20
To be on the safe side you’ll be better off keeping your foot in the door; to break ties completely would deny the fact that some of what’s left here is still working for you. The next new thing looks as good, or better, than what you’ve got going on right now but circumstances are unstable and you would be foolish to risk it all for things that are subject to the whim of fate or the whims of those who you hardly know. Keep searching out the possibilities and consider what a whole new scene might do to stir your joie de vivre but don’t burn any bridges and don’t rush this.
April 21 – May 20
Maybe things will turn around; until they do you’ve got to find a way to maintain what you have without wondering what the future will do to it. The heart of the matter is; you can’t overextend, over-indulge, or overestimate yourself without having to pay for it on the other end of the line. If you’re looking at how much better things would have been if you hadn’t gone overboard, you’re also wondering if it’s too late to repair whatever got damaged in the process. For many of you, this will bring up the whole issue of making amends toward those you have alienated on the way.
May 21 – June 20
You finally decided to quit pressuring yourself to do anything but cover the basics. It’s been so much more fun since you figured out how to keep your focus closer to the center line instead of all over the place. Issues that have to do with getting others to see it your way are less important than they were a few months ago. Isn’t it interesting that the need to be totally in synch with those who have the power to make a difference in your life has revealed itself to be more of a handicap than something to be desired? In this area it’s clear that variety is still the spice of life.
June 21 – July 20
To be a little clearer than you were a month ago has taught you that time heals everything. Most of you have a hard time letting go and your recent issues have created experiences that have forced you to look that particular item right in the face. As things have progressed you appear to be more in charge of the energies that make you spin off center every time your abandonment and rejection trips force you to return to yourself. If you have figured out how to aim toward things that reinforce your inner strength you will continue to make the best of a difficult time.
July 21 – August 20
Don’t think that pressing your case will strengthen your position; sometimes things go better when we know enough to fade into the woodwork and let life follow its natural course. For many of you, it’s your pride that makes you want to be right about this, or right about things that happened without your consent. While it’s easy to understand why you want to tell your side of the story, at the moment no one wants to hear it. Trust me; this is one of those times when being conspicuous in your absence will do more to further your interests than making a fuss.
August 21–September 20
Believing in something doesn’t mean it’s true, just as not believing in something doesn’t make it false. You’ve got to be really careful when it comes to being convinced that you’re right about anything. That being the case, can you be sure that others are really there for you? If you believe that, it would be good to double check and see if their actions warrant that much faith. I am not saying that all the power you’ve given to them isn’t deserved; all I am saying is that it’s in your best interests to be sure that this isn’t just another lesson in what happens when we are deluded.
September 21 – October 20
LIBRA: September 21 – October 20
Narrow escapes come in all shapes and sizes. No matter what you just barely escaped getting 86’d by, you’re breathing a sigh of relief that you made it through the gauntlet. In the course of this experience your whole attitude has changed. Getting back into the same old routine will have to come with a few adjustments; the need to lighten your load enough to carry only what you can handle is more important than anything else right now. It will also make a huge difference if others are aware of your tendency to do it all, and care enough to step in and put a stop to it.
October 21 – November 20
Keep reminding yourself that you’re the grown up in this situation. I don’t care who you’re at odds with; you’re the only one who knows what’s going on. What point is there to lose control or get up in arms over things that are inconsequential if all you’re worried about is what people are going to think about you if you don’t? Whoever is causing the problem doesn’t know any better. It’ll save time and confusion if only one of you makes a fool of themselves. Sometimes the only way to preserve your self-respect means knowing enough to let others come out on top.
November 21 – December 20
You are about to have your limits tested; some, if not all of them will call you to stretch past all of the issues that force you to see everything only your way. It looks like there will be a huge need to be magnanimous enough to open your heart to those who disagree or whose beliefs challenge everything you hold to be true. In situations like this taking the high road becomes a matter of detaching, or getting far enough away from it to be able to smile at the ways in which human beings differ – and at the irony that suggests that this may be all we have in common!
December 21 – January 20
By the time you read this, these words will make perfect sense or they will seem to have no bearing on your current situation. Try to expand your perceptions far enough to understand it as it applies to your higher self. Many things are in the process of changing. You are being called to step into your power. If the messages that you are receiving through your experiences can no longer be ignored the only question you need to be asking is; how big can I allow myself to be and what will it take to release the issues that hold me to the belief that I can’t be who I am?
January 21 – February 20
This would be easier if you could stop taking it personally and begin to realize that you can’t hold yourself responsible for what’s going on with other people. Leave it to them to figure out how to transcend their BS far enough to see that they can’t keep using it to hold you hostage. You can stay or go; that’s always up to you. If you decide to stick around there’s a good chance that you will keep hearing the same old story. Sometimes absence really does make the heart grow fonder. Consider the virtues of a short break from the pressures of codependence.
February 21 – March 20
You’re having a hard time figuring out how to get around the next hump. Many of you are ready to bail out. This is such a critical turning point, no wonder you get the feeling you’d just as soon spin right off the turn table. At these points where nothing seems to matter life comes down to what have you got to lose? Each person has their own idea of what that amounts to. Right now, with things the way they are, the less you have invested in the things that only matter to those who dictate our likes and dislikes, the easier it will be for you to make it around this bend.
