Horoscopes for May 8-14, 2019

ARIES: March 21 – April 20
At this point it comes down to: how much can you handle? With enough fire to get anything moving, you don’t know for sure if you care enough to make it worth your while to rise above all of this and be redeemed by it. If that sounds dramatic, your life is always that way. Next to the whipping post, endless possibilities simmer, waiting for you to dip into them – or not. As you ponder life and death matters, the ones that keep you alive are about to require more from you than you ever imagined. Keep the light on. Your heart is full of it. Don’t let it go out at a time like this.
TAURUS: April 21 – May 20
This worked out so much better than you expected. If you’re not sure what’s going on it’s because you get shaky when you’re this OK with things. The feeling that you’re on top of the world alternates with the sense that it could all be taken away from you in a heartbeat. As you move in and out of fear, pay attention to what it gets you. Don’t let the tendency fret over your choices keep you from seeing that all of this was not only worth it, it has formed the body of experience that makes what’s happening right now more meaningful than anything you’ve done before.
GEMINI: May 21 – June 20
After sweating out one thing after another here you are opening up to a period of smooth sailing. Getting on with things has restored your faith in the power of the spirit to find its way through anything. The next phase of the journey will require you to pay closer attention to the way you affect other people. And the smoothness of the sailing will depend to a large extent on how others respond to your energy and your level of integrity. What comes out of this could make you or break you. Don’t put on airs or try to over impress people – just relax and be who you are.
CANCER: June 21 – July 20
Being left high and dry isn’t easy. If you didn’t see this coming you’re probably in a state of shock. The quicker you get used to the idea that holding the bag seems to wind up being your chore, the better. Too many things have come to a head and too much is getting ready to change. Your main focus needs to include making time to get clear about where you stop and everyone else begins. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you are not a door mat. The ability to just say no, and the strength to direct your attention toward the things that you love is where it’s at right now.
LEO: July 21 – August 20
Don’t turn this into a soap opera and don’t apply your need for certainty to people who are totally up in the air about everything. Hello!? How can you possibly expect them to meet your needs when they can’t even be there for themselves? Ask yourself what it is that causes you to issue ultimatums when you know inside that you don’t have that right? Tightening up on other people when it’s obvious that they need plenty of room won’t do anything for you, or them. If you loosen up and trust others enough to draw their own boundaries, they will love you for it.
VIRGO: August 21 – September 20
If things seem a little easier to handle it’s because you decided to go with the flow. Up until now most of your troubles came from needing everything to be a certain way. After more than one confrontation with people or forces that have other things in mind, you’ve realized that you’ll make better progress if you’re less invested in which way things go. This may feel like a bit of a cop out, but wait and see; because the most effective way to deal with any opposing force is to offer no resistance. Think about that and notice how everything comes to you when you let it go.
LIBRA: September 21 – October 20
Giving people more credit than they deserve has taught you a lot about how easy it is to get sucked in by appearances. The thought that you bought into it is mind blowing. Now that you’re here, restoring some level of integrity is going to require you to rewind to the point where things started to fly south. On other fronts, various emergencies and other forms of interference have altered the daily dynamics with more than the usual amount of stress. Isn’t it amazing that no matter how crazy life gets, it’s always your job to be the adult who knows how to make it work?
SCORPIO: October 21 – November 20
You could try a little harder but it won’t make a difference. No one’s noticing. And they either won’t or they can’t because they have other obligations, interests, and/or preferences. Give this situation only what it will take. Don’t knock yourself out over things that are of no consequence and don’t expect anyone to care. Timing is everything and it makes no sense to push when circumstances call you to see that nothing works when you do. It’s also more than obvious that you need to wind down and find a way to reconnect with the deeper part of your creative self.
SAGITTARIUS: November 21 – December 20
No one needs to tell you that the next phase of this process will involve making decisions about things that will change everything. You are looking at it, wondering if you know enough to do the right thing. Part of you says “Stay.” The other half says “Go.” You have the sense that you might make a mess of it. All it comes down to is what you can live with. Yes; if you let yourself off the hook you will be free but you’re wondering what it will mean to leave or lose this. Sit on your decision for a while. Going back and forth with fill up the better part of three or four more months.
CAPRICORN: December 21 – January 20
With so much going for you the trick lies in knowing how to direct things without getting derailed. Surface appearance indicates that you’re exactly where you need to be. As the forces that conspire to make all of this possible continue to support the task at hand, your only job is to show up and be 100 percent there for it. Every cell in your body knows what needs to happen. If there is anything holding you back it is the thought that you can’t believe this. As the opposite reveals itself to be true, it’s up to you to step forward and stoke this fire with your best effort.
AQUARIUS: January 21 – February 20
Your choices need to get settled but your mind is confused by whatever you think it’s going to take to get happy. When our “pictures” obscure the view it’s time to take off our blinders and look at what’s going on. This isn’t as hard as you make it. A few adjustments and I have a feeling that you’ll be surprised at the way things fall into place. What’s interesting about you is, you already know exactly what you’re looking for. What’s there for you now holds the key to your future. Rearrange a few things and get centered enough get out of the way and let this vision come to life.
PISCES: February 21 – March 20
You’ve got all kinds of “stuff” going on. It’s hard to say where you’re at because your connection to the outside world is being impacted by forces that are both hard to read and hard to assimilate. Any threat to the security of your work situation needs to be addressed, knowing that much of what is happening there is totally outside of your control. At the personal level the longing for love is as strong as ever; but you’ve got lessons in independence that require you to find yourself before you’re allowed to make room in your life for anyone but you and your purpose for being here.
