Horoscopes for May 25 – May 31, 2016
March 21 – April 20
Everything is coming down to the wire. How you approach the next 6 weeks matters more than anything. The need to experience immediate results, or the idea that ‘real’ success could possibly happen overnight, is something that you’d do well to keep an eye on. Every important process takes one year to unfold. How it goes from here? It’ll be 100% awesome as long as you keep your level of excellence where it belongs, and let nature iron out the details. Recent decisions will be confirmed, or not, in upcoming encounters with those who have arrived to rearrange things.
April 21 – May 20
If you could see all of this through a wide angle lens you would know that the confusion and the multiplicity of options are serving a purpose. Life is much bigger than we realize. It is subject to all kinds of change. What would help is to focus on what’s happening to you now, knowing that it would not be to your advantage to try to freeze anything in time, or expect anything to look the same 3 years from now. If others are hounding you to fit some sort of mold, tell them you don’t want to be beholden to anyone or anything, and see if they are big enough to take you as you are.
May 21 – June 20
You’re in the middle of a big transition. At the moment your attention is focused on the past, and everything that brought you to this place. The circumstances are bound to vary, but the sense of loss and disorientation is strong for many of you. Things like this are just a sign that it’s all about to turn around. Everything has a time limit. Reflect on what’s falling away just long enough to give it its due, but don’t get too nostalgic. What’s around the corner is totally awesome. You’d be nuts to hang around crying and worrying about what it signifies, any longer than you have to.
June 21 – July 20
You could be totally fed up, wondering where your life went. The desire to escape is strong. Going back to the source would help. That could mean many things. A retreat? A trip to the ocean? A vision quest, totally out of time? Give yourself permission to get off the boat long enough to find your way, or find a reason to keep going. Family stuff is bound to be “up”. There are issues that haven’t been settled that will require more patience and time on your part. If you feel a little restless, within a certain amount of surface calm, everything is on tenterhooks.
July 21 – August 20
You are ready to get real about all of this. If your head has come to terms with it, the deeper part of you is still playing tricks on your mind. It’s easy for the ego to rationalize all kinds of nonsense. You’ve been seduced by people and things that look like everything you’ve ever wanted. If that doesn’t ring true then there’s some level of illusion that’s cramping your style. There’s no need to freak out, but this is one of those times when the need to stay grounded enough to look past the surface and see the ‘real-ness’ of people and things before you dive in.
August 21–September 20
The next big thing is making you wonder if it’s worth it to be this involved with outer things, or if it’s time to go within and forget about it. You’re not sure where you stand. At this point the need to walk in both worlds is being impacted by the fact that we seem to be half-past-human, stranded somewhere between this dimension and the next. I don’t know how to explain this but it looks like you’re about to crack the code that will allow you to take the best of both worlds and make something new and beautiful with what is already in place. How that works, is up to you.
September 21 – October 20
The tide is up and you have more to contend with than you’ve had to juggle in quite a while. How it goes depends on the extent to which you’ve kept your ducks in a row. There will be a few months where the opportunity level will be high and your energy will be there to meet it. When work and play will mesh like this it’s best to ride the wave. Before the seasons change, and at the very latest, before it gets cold, there will be another story on the menu. Give it all you’ve got, for now. Anything that comes out of it needs to be held in reserve, pending further developments.
October 21 – November 20
The way things look it’s time to step out of the phone booth. You were starting to wonder if you were ever going to get out from under the stipulations of the last six months. No matter how alone you might feel, there is more support than you realize, both seen and unseen, for everything you are doing. Knowing what you owe people, and wishing you were more comfortable taking chances, at a time when the pressure to tow the line is off the charts, is all part of the deal. Caught between more than a few people, places, and things, you will know when it’s time to quit.
November 21 – December 20
You’ve got irons in the fire and things are shaping up to make you believe in yourself again. The stuff that you never thought you’d get to do is all about to happen and now your ‘double-brain’ is wondering if you’re going to be able to get it to fly. You, of all people, should know that this is going to be whatever you make it. While you let the Nazi in your head hassle you about your abilities, the greater part of you knows that you can do this. Look twice at where all of the doubts are coming from. Our fears of success are often times much greater than our fear of failure..
December 21 – January 20
You can’t believe your eyes. You’re either totally amazed by what others have done to bless you, or you’re blown away by the fact that you’ve gotten through this in one piece. As the rest of the story unfolds you will be fine as long as you remain clear about who you’re dealing with, and just as aware of your own behavior. There is bound to be a lot of love, and forgiveness floating around. In the eye of this energy, at the still point where everything begins and ends. the only thing that matters is remaining true to yourself and knowing for sure what you want out of this.
January 21 – February 20
Nobody gets to you the way a certain so-and-so gets to you. And this is either feeling bad or good depending on where you stand with each other. In some ways it’s OK to care this much and/or be this involved. On another level it’s gotten to the point where you could use some time and enough distance to return to yourself. Lots of things have shifted in the last few months. What matters now looks a lot different than it did before things got so intense. One way or another you could use a break and a little time to figure out where you’re really at with yourself.
February 21 – March 20
You’re in the middle of something that you will not fully understand for another 20 years. By the time you figure it out you will realize that this is where everything came out in the wash. For better or worse, here you are, wrestling with the crux of your purpose for living walking the fine line between love and fear. The only thing that matters right now is where you decide to place your trust and the extent to which you understand that we are living in a time when love has to be the guiding principle in everything we do. Seen from that point of view, your choices seem clear.
