Aries (March 20-April 19) — A more public life is a greater probability for you at this time. In addition, you may very well derive significant satisfaction with even an indirect increase in exposure. One possible fly in the ointment, however, is the issue of satisfaction itself. Please understand it’s not a problem to act in your own self-interest. The potential catch is excessive self-involvement. If you want the chance of greater visibility to really pay off, you will need to demonstrate for others how a higher profile for you will result in appreciable gain for them.
Taurus (April 19-May 20) — You might want to take stock of how community is manifesting for you compared to this time last year. Consider contemplating the quality of places where you gather with peers. When you find yourself in the company of those with whom you share a mutual identity and/or purpose, are you now more likely to be the host or the guest? Simply getting a conscious grasp of where you find commonality (and how that’s changed) will go a long way toward illuminating how you have changed as well.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) — If options are few, consider tracing your choices back to where the appearance of limits began. If you feel on top of the world, think about how to stay there. Either way, time will almost certainly be on your side if you devote a little to the same purpose every day. Should your endeavor be to recover old ground, it’s probable you need only look back a few months for alternatives still available. Assuming your situation is copacetic, you may keep it that way by keeping tabs on where your feet are, and what’s under them.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — From all appearances, you are on the verge of completing some sort of journey or task. Full awareness of what your intentions have been will almost certainly mean closure consists of knowing when to abandon the object of your efforts and move on. On the other hand, if a glimpse in the rearview mirror is only now making you conscious of how far you have come or gone, fulfillment will entail catching up with where you have been, what you have become, and how you are both more and less for your discoveries.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Six months ago you may have reaped what you sowed six months before that. If such a scenario does not resonate for you, consider how its complement may be true. Perhaps a harvest of some sort is only now becoming possible. Either way, it’s important to know what side of a cycle you are currently on, so as to contribute consciously to its continuation. Trust your feelings in this matter. If you sense it’s proper to gather in, waste no time lest tangible waste result. If planting seeds seems more appropriate now, bend to it.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — Give yourself some slack if you are not clear about what you should be doing right now. Doubt and second-guessing are not your friends. Instead, allow yourself to step back until a bigger picture of longer duration comes into sharper focus. Get back in touch with the root values that have always nourished and informed your life. Let yourself remember who you have always been through thick and thin. Once you have reinforced a connection with your origins, you will better know how to honor your soul’s purpose.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — It’s understandable if you are reluctant to even think about moving beyond whatever relief you have recently found or been given. You may forgive yourself if you would prefer to avoid further trial of any kind. You have indeed paid your dues. Sooner or later, however, you will need to get paid in turn. Better to make it sooner, and to accept that all of what you have coming to you will probably not simply show up at your door. It’s time to reconcile yourself with the necessity of leaving your comfort zone to collect on karma.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Give yourself credit for what you have overcome. You must admit how fears you have recently chosen to confront head-on have dissipated for the most part. Yet, here you are — still in the woods to some extent, and wondering whether to dig a hole. Try climbing a tree instead. It will keep you just as warm as digging and allow you to see so much farther, perhaps even to a clearing. Of course, climbing down and making for the forest’s edge will entail some risk, but if the alternative is being lost, dare you not even try?
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — If you find yourself bored anytime soon, try a simple exercise. Make a two-column list. In one column list all the ways you feel rich. On the other side, enumerate all the ways you feel poor. Include all forms of material abundance, or lack of it. Do not neglect, however, to itemize intangible forms of both wealth and dearth. Then, put the list away and go about your life, but make a note on your calendar to review your list again come the Full Moon of March 5. What your March read reveals could very well turn your life around by April.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — Look back to late December and try to remember at least one thing that went unexpectedly right. Then, look back to early January and try to recall how at least one thing could have gone far more wrong. Reviving recent memories of good fortune will likely be of great help to you in February, especially if dreary routine or nebulous discontent threaten to get the better of you. You have better things to do than wallow right now. You have momentum to maintain and people you need to inspire. Stay on your roll.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You should now be able to raise your head and look up from immediate concerns, which have had you so narrowly focused for so long. Look up to see — really see — the Sun and everything beneath it, and you will likely discover something that has been patiently waiting for you. Look up and allow yourself to behold the Moon in a leisurely way and you will probably find something new inside. Look up to those you would like better to understand, and a greater understanding of yourself will almost certainly result.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — The fruit that ripens last is often the most nourishing. The flower that opens late usually smells the sweetest. If you have had any sense of being behind or somehow less than others, now is the time to see things another way. With passing time, you have grown and will continue to evolve so long as you are not wearied by worry. In the full expression of time your need for anger will diminish so long as you can release attachment to a particular outcome. You are not half empty. Fulfillment is even now at hand.
