ARIES: You should know better, but you're going forward with this anyway. That's OK. Most of us have to learn the hard way. Somehow, you have the idea that your ticket to "normal" involves following the herd. I hate to be the one to clue you in, but everyone else's rules aren't even working for them, so what makes you think they'll work for you? If the answer to your prayers appears to be within reach, your bubble will burst the moment you start dealing with the reality of the situation. At this point, maybe you should step back and reconsider your choices.
TAURUS: Don't press people or be overly eager to hook up. Timing is everything when it comes to these things. If others are reluctant or seem unresponsive it's only because they're going through their own process and can't tune into yours just yet. Underneath it all, they want the same thing, so be patient. The next time you feel inclined to approach them, you'll be surprised at how willing they are to welcome you in. For now, take their reservations with a grain of salt and use this time to reflect upon what it is you really want out of this.
GEMINI: Parental issues come in all different shapes and sizes. Sometimes they're right in our face and other times they run us from within. You aren't quite sure what to make of some of the stuff that's been coming up for you lately, but you're beginning to see the extent to which your relationships have been totally messed up by mommy and daddy. If it seems as if you'll never crawl out from under the past, take heart — at the energetic level you're already free. Within the next six months your love life will begin to reflect everything your heart desires.
CANCER: No one could have predicted this. Even those close to you can't figure it out. It seems as if life is calling you to move in a whole new direction. Part of you is afraid of the unknown as you are excited about what you'll find when you get there — and you may be overly concerned about whether or not you'll be able to adapt to things that were definitely not a part of the plan. You know what they say: If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans! Let go of your security trips and your certainty issues — winging it is where it's at right now.
LEO: Being there for people only works up to a point. You've been so good about helping someone deal with their difficulties that your own needs have gotten lost in the process. It looks to me like they're strong enough to move forward without your support, so maybe it's time to get back into your own thing. This may involve re-examining your relationship to your work. Getting real about where that's going will require you to face the fact that you can't depend on anything right now. As far as that goes, don't assume that hanging in there will pay off.
VIRGO: Trying to decide what you want, when you have no clue as to what that might be, is insane. Stop putting so much pressure on yourself to have it all figured out. From a cosmic perspective, you might as well be in limbo right now. And since that's happening, it would be good for you to see that the latest clue to the new direction hasn't even formed yet. Give yourself plenty of space and time to think, roam ... or just do nothing. The point is to stay joyful. If you can allow yourself to remain in that state then your deepest wishes and desires will be plain as day in no time.
LIBRA: Stay tuned to opportunities because they're going to be popping up everywhere. A lot of what's about to open up will happen where you least expect to find it. One of the keys to making things happen has to do with getting out and about. Invitations to do even the most mundane things could yield more than you can imagine. And if anyone invites you to take off on a trip or wants you to sign up for a seminar, know that whoever's upstairs is just trying to put you in the right place at the right time. Who knows? In a year you could be exactly where you want to be.
SCORPIO: You haven't been this happy in a long time. And what you're seeing is that your happiness has less to do with people, places and things than it does with how you feel inside. Looking back on your past, there's been way too much trying to fit in to what you think is expected or what you think someone like yourself should be doing. The changes of the last few years have shown you that most of that stuff is bullshit! So, here you are, filled with a sense of inner peace that will serve to attract only what is good into a life that has seen enough trouble.
SAGITTARIUS: You're wondering if all this confusion could have been avoided if you had just known enough to endure what you couldn't tolerate about a year ago. There's no way to tell what would have happened if you made different choices. Living with the circumstances you've created may be difficult, but at least you're aware of what you did. It'll take a while to heal this and it'll require you to put out an enormous amount of effort. That's OK. One thing you've got going for you is a positive attitude and a desire to grow beyond the lessons of the past.
CAPRICORN: Getting this much disrespect from people who should be grateful for everything you've done for them is hard to swallow, but that's where it's at. You can't blame others for being too small or too messed up to see that they should be grateful. Health concerns are also an issue and, believe it or not, they're connected to all of the above. Somehow, your body has taken on what your mind can't handle. Forgiveness is the key to everything. Once you find it in your heart to forgive, all of this will clear up instantaneously.
AQUARIUS: What you couldn't foresee has put a monkey wrench into all of your plans. Moving forward will require you to adapt and perhaps totally change your direction. If you're too stuck on pursuing the same dream you could easily wind up disappointed. Loosen the gears that drive your reality and try to see this as an opportunity to change absolutely everything. The truth is, whatever's been disrupted needed to fall apart. Don't freak out about it. Sometimes the universe has to hit us over the head with a sledgehammer to get us to see the light.
PISCES: You're living in a dream. If you think what you have bears any resemblance to what you want, guess again! Part of you knows this, but you're so good at making silk purses out of sow's ears you can't tell the difference anymore. I don't know how long it will be before you get real, but I have a feeling you're almost there. Others are obviously taking too much and giving very little in return — and you're running on empty. The sooner you get over the idea that this is working, the sooner you'll be able to extricate yourself from a very unhealthy situation. | RDW
