LEO: July 21 – August 20
You are going out of your way for someone who expects you to jump through hoops for them, and for what? It's hard to believe that you think you need to put up with this. If this last go-round doesn't teach you to let them handle their own mess from now on, I don't know what will. There is so much that keeps you from tending to your own affairs at a time when your own life needs more attention. And the obvious question is, where the Hell is everyone? Who's there for you, now that you need a little help?
VIRGO: August 21 – September 20
So much has fallen away, your reasons for living don't seem to be anywhere in sight. There's nothing wrong with wondering what you're here for. Whatever it is that used to keep you going needs to be replaced with something new. You're lucky you have work to keep you focused in the here-and-now because your mind and heart can't handle too much of anything. Be real gentle with yourself and don't go looking for too much excitement. This is a sobering experience. If you're smart you'll learn a lot from it.
LIBRA: September 21 – October 20
The way things have turned out, you must be having a good laugh over life's latest trick. All this time you thought you were the one who needed a spanking — come to find out, you're the goodie-toe-shoes in this situation! Things have been in a state of confusion because no one, including you, has been telling the truth. Finding out that you may have been used as a stepping-stone isn't exactly pleasant — but in your own way you've been exploiting people, too. If you can admit that, this confusion will clear up.
SCORPIO: October 21 – November 20
You have just figured out that you have nothing to lose. It's the best feeling in the world. Now that you've decided to go for it, others are wondering what went wrong. Don't be fooled by last minute turnarounds. They could have made that choice long before this. If you're thinking about where things could go if you get involved with someone else, it's not time for that yet. Do whatever you want with people, but don't make the mistake of thinking that you're ready to get in real deep with anyone right now.
SAGITTARIUS: November 21 – December 20
Recent changes came up so suddenly that most of you didn't have a chance to think this over. That's OK. You're intuition took you down the right road. If it feels scary to be doing this, it's just because everything will be reshuffled once it's over — and the roles you used to play in your relationships won't be the same for anyone. If you thought you were going to settle down and live a normal life, guess again. Your spirit is too big for normal. Besides, what you're doing now is way more exciting and fun.
CAPRICORN: December 21 – January 20
Trying too hard won't help you settle this situation. Going around thinking you can wake people up to what they can't see themselves is crazy. Right now you'd be better off keeping to yourself anyway. Most of your problems have to do with the misconception that everything is up to you. The only thing that's up to you is your own life — and your own life may be suffering because you've been living through other people for way too long. Get a grip on what you want. Forget all this other nonsense.
AQUARIUS: January 21 – February 20
You're feeling unusually vulnerable at the moment. There's a fear of slipping back into patterns that you're not quite sure you've conquered. For the time being, it would be good for you to be selective about the company you keep. Don't sign up for anything until you know what it really involves. This shift you're experiencing will take time. Don't assume that others have the slightest clue about what you're going through and make sure that you don't acquiesce when they try to rope you into their schemes.
PISCES: February 21 – March 20
If you're feeling better about things it's because you left the pity party and decided to face the truth. As humbling as it is to realize that you got yourself into this, getting out of it doesn't seem to be as much of a problem anymore. With the understanding that you tend to over-idealize things, you now know that what you've had all along is probably what you want. You can stop chasing around after the perfect love and the perfect life. If what you have isn't good enough, you're expecting too much.
ARIES: March 21 – April 20
Too many worries and too much to do have taken the fun out of life. You are not really up for what's going on right now, but at least you're trying to keep a good attitude. Time for yourself is important. You're not joined at the hip to anyone or anything. If life in the bedroom is less than perfect, get some distance from each other for a few days and see what happens. There are opportunities to learn more about some of your special interests. A seminar could take you away from it all. Think about signing up for one.
TAURUS: April 21 – May 20
You haven't quite figured out how to get this to go the way you want it to. There is so much telling you to drop it, but you have too many other considerations and letting go will require you to drop them first. Family matters have you wondering what family is for. No one seems to agree on anything right now. If all of you could practice the art of listening, you'd stand a better chance of learning something from this. You may turn out to be the one who has the most to learn. Be open to what others are trying to tell you.
GEMINI: May 21 – June 20
Somehow your five-year-plan doesn't look like it's going to fall into place as neatly as you thought it would. It's time to back out because this won't go anywhere. Rethinking your life will require taking a good look at how complicated things have gotten. You take on too much when you don't really need to. While it's great to want to do everything under the sun, you can't do it all. The stress you're under right now probably has you wondering if you'd be better off doing one thing instead of everything.
CANCER: June 21 – July 20
Cleaning up the past has gotten a lot more involved than you thought it would. As difficult as this feels, the end result will be worth it. You are opening yourself up to a whole new way of being. Those who wish to keep you in your place will continue to do everything in their power to hold you back. Their methods will be subtle and most likely disguised as love and some form of support. In this situation, you can't let your naiveté prevent you from seeing that what appears to be kindness is really manipulation. | RDW
