Horoscopes for May 11 – May 17, 2016
March 21 – April 20
You are always free to do what you want; it’s the way things are with you. At the moment, doing what you want involves bringing the long awaited dream to life. In the last few weeks you have woken up to the fact that there is no way you can bring things to fulfillment without coming to terms with your fears. Luckily you are good enough at observing yourself to see what needs to happen. Lock up the impulse to explode. Your impatience is a huge pitfall in a situation where nothing is clear, and where what you have yet to see about yourself could blind you to the truth.
April 21 – May 20
How far you go depends a lot upon where your motives lie. Being able to see yourself clearly is of paramount importance. The ‘bandwagon’ could be heading down a hard and rocky road. Before you listen to those who tell you, you better get on the ball and follow suit, ask yourself if it’s really time for this, or if something else matters more than whatever it means to you. Everything is changing. Instead of pushing things at a moment when too many snafus could screw up your dream come true, wait and see. You may need to head down a totally different path.
May 21 – June 20
You’re in too deep, but what else is new? You like it this way – and too many good things are coming together for you to complain about the fact that you don’t have time to think. For some of you, it’s a Godsend not to have a moment to yourself – for others, it’s getting to be a drag. What lies between you and fulfillment has to do with knowing yourself well enough to stop the madness when it gets to be too much. Knowing more about other people’s weaknesses than they do would be useful to you now. As everything comes to a head, be mindful of what lies beneath.
June 21 – July 20
You are perched at the tipping point, wondering which way this is going to go. Part of you knows what you want; the other part of you wishes you were 100% sure about it. Those close to you are confronted with challenges that are impinging on the way you feel about things. All relationships go through times like this. More space could be therapeutic in some cases. On the other hand, too much space could make it easier to avoid looking at where you stand, relative to all of it. Keep focused on your work for the time being. You need to stay grounded to remain clear.
July 21 – August 20
Caught between two or more principles, you have to find a way to resolve a conflict that is more than it seems. Your choices in the next few weeks hold sway over so much. If you are aware of what is required of you, you’re looking at what happens when what’s expected of us doesn’t look anything like what we want, or need to do. How things go from here depends a lot on where you place the emphasis. If the old paradigm has too much to say about your decisions, good luck. Time is of the essence and this is no time to be timid when it comes to your truer dreams.
August 21–September 20
Everything appears to be fine. Looking around, you’ve got it all figured out. Before you get too proud of yourself, keep in mind that the minute anything reaches perfection it starts to rot. You could freeze frame this whole situation and stay here forever, but it’s too soon for that. The question that has to do with ‘who do you want to be when you grow up’ is on top of the stack again. Depending on your age, this is either feeling bad or good. Either way, stop to reflect upon where things were at 6 or 7 years ago and tune in to whether or not they’re working for you now.
September 21 – October 20
You’re at a crossroads, with a vague sense of what needs to happen next. This may or may not have anything to do with what you really want. By the time Fall rolls around, a whole new set of conditions is going to enter the picture and rearrange the way you see yourself now. Don’t be in a big rush to overturn the status quo. It’ll work better to hang in there and hold steady. Those close to you are having their own brand of stress. There are plenty of reasons to detach just enough to handle your side of the story. It will be easier to reconnect if you have space and time to regroup.
October 21 – November 20
Where do you go from here is a good question. At rock bottom, once too much of a good thing either flies south, or gets boring, you’ve got to find a way to clean it all up and start over. For the past few months you’ve given all of yourself to a situation that by now is proving to be worth it, or not. Sudden changes in the main frame of your relationships, both with people in your life, and with your work, call you to review whether or not what was true for you a year ago is working for you now. Others have two-cents to offer. Whether it matters? Consider the source.
November 21 – December 20
Your bad habits have their good points. The tendency to self righteousness is just as willing to live-and-let-live. What’s going on right now will require you to walk the line between laying down the law, and letting people be themselves. As you try to figure out what’s going on here, the idea that you give too much slack to some and not enough to others is bound to get wrapped up in whether you benefit. Slippery ethics, and the ‘stuff’ that lets us justify our ambitions by painting them with a spiritual mask is all over the place in your world. Keep an close eye on it.
December 21 – January 20
One phase of this transformation is over. As the next stretch opens up, you’re beginning to see that whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. In a few months you will be on your way up. Any sense of fear or trepidation has to do with the fact that you’ve been up against it for the last 4 years and you’ve got no reason to expect that anything is going to be easy. Life ebbs and flows and for the time being, whatever the past has taught you is your reward. Keep your wits about you. Pray for the wisdom to see through those who arrive to undermine you and/or, your plans.
January 21 – February 20
You have nothing to worry about. What lies up on the road ahead has been insured by the amount of effort that has led you to this place. In the next few weeks, more than the everyday round of affairs will need your attention. Approach things in segments. You will have a tough time if you try to do everything at the last minute. A dose of yoga and some meditation, or anything that gives you more room to breathe will enhance everything you do. I may be missing something, but I see nothing but good here. You have carte blanche for another six months.
February 21 – March 20
You go between knowing you’ve got this all figured out, to being less than sure of yourself. The forces that you’re dealing with are overpowering, on a lot of different levels. This may sound a little too “Self-Help”, but the only thing you can change is your mind. Deep down inside you know that you have to find a way to be OK with all of this before you will have any sense of control over it. In an ocean of possibilities, fear and doubt are the biggest sharks. Keep track of where you go when fear gets the best of your faith in the idea that you are ‘this close’ to a way out.
