Aries (March 20-April 19) — Posses yourself, and your possessions will be more secure. Accept yourself, and you will find greater acceptance. Empower yourself and your power will grow. Regardless of your proficiency with mathematics, there is a divine form of arithmetic available to you right now. What you add will multiply. Where you subtract, division will result. Therefore, focus on what you can bring to any situation in your life, and what you take away will take care of itself. The universe is not asking you to act on faith. This is remembering what you know.
Taurus (April 19-May 20) — True fulfillment comes only to those who are not full of themselves. Therefore be curious in every sense of the word. Practice being observant of your surroundings. Then, give free rein to your curiosity, and allow your innate capacity to take things in to take over. Also, rather than look into mirrors, practice being a mirror with a mission. If you make it your mission to reflect back to others what you love of yourself in them, they may think you a bit odd. Nonetheless, persist gently, and what others share of themselves in return will almost certainly fill your deepest needs.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) — The middle road may very well appear to be off to one side or another for you right now. Try allowing that to be okay. This is not to say you are in any way off your true path. It is to say that your true path may be a little lonely for the time being. Try letting that be okay too. You need not fear that you will lose any ability to engage. What you do need to watch for is being less than true to yourself. Fortunately, you are at the steering wheel, and this stretch of road is probably familiar enough for you to make your way to re-engagement plenty soon enough.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — If fatigue has recently been an issue for you, a new and more wholesome remedy may be at hand. If, on the other hand, your energy levels have been acceptable, optimum performance might be just around the corner. The key to either ending a funky slump or shifting into a higher gear appears to be how much you are present in every moment, seeing your surroundings and immediate company for what and who they are. When you get right down to it, what’s either had you down (or at less than full potential) is probably somebody or something that is, in some sense, far away.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Spending time now counting your blessings promises to yield unanticipated dividends. That’s partially because the odds are you have missed as many benefits as you have noted in the onrushing flow of the past several weeks. Also, you might well have spent several months too narrowly focused on what you have been counting on. Pulling back to assess (or re-assess, as the case may be) does not mean pulling out of the flow, by the way. One blessing you may have missed is an expanded capacity to take more in while also taking more on.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — From the looks of it, your emotional investments are getting to be at least potentially (if not demonstrably) more productive and less exasperating. To stay on a roll (or get a roll going) in the next couple weeks, contemplate how and where previously separate threads in your life have woven together, and to what extent that’s happened at your suggestion. Also consider when and where you have recently practiced good timing — or not – that has enhanced the level of gratification or reduced the level of aggravation in your relationships.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — A whole new level of maturity awaits you. Fortunately you have plenty of time to reach it. Start now by setting aside five minutes of every day for an internal appraisal of your external possessions. Make a list. Begin with how you came to acquire each thing. Then, proceed to acquire some level of awareness regarding how each piece of tangible property got the value it has for you now. Though such a practice may seem at first an idle and arbitrary pastime, simple persistence and consistency should yield a more sustainable perspective on your life before this year ends.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Think wet cement. To work with wet cement you need planning, preparation, a sense of proportion, and enough time at the right time. It’s very possible there is at least one part of your life (if not your entire life) to which the metaphor of wet cement would apply now. Think of that which is not yet set in stone for the long run, or what is otherwise still in the process of taking form. Then, get clear on whether you have a plan, and what (if anything) you have been preparing for. Finally, apply yourself as if time is running out, because in some sense it probably is.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — Your intuitions are evidently working very well. Therefore, if something just doesn’t feel right, pay attention. At the same time, however, be circumspect about what you do in response to what you are feeling. If your intuitions have a downside right now, it’s their need for verification outside of your personal story. If possible, find an objective and impersonal way to audit whatever does not seem to add up. Then you will know whether it’s your attitude or your relationships that need adjusting.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — It appears as though you have caught up with something. If so, acknowledge both what you have done and those who have helped, then let it go. You have other things to think about. Because it also seems as though you are getting caught up in something at this time as well — something new and promising. To realize the promise and minimize any pitfall, ask yourself at the beginning of every day where you want to put your energy. Then, at the end of every day, ask yourself to what cause your energy went, and reset your intent for the next day accordingly.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Don’t hold your breath. What seems to be impending probably has further to go than you may think right now. Besides, it would do you a lot of good to release what’s grown stale after having been kept inside so long. For the best results, think of yourself as one party in a fair exchange. Exhaling slowly so as to show the way will almost certainly be better than blowing anything (or anybody) down in an attempt to clear your way. That way, whatever form of fresh air you take in will better serve to clear your head than to turn it.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Congratulations for hanging in there so well for so long. It probably feels like a quite a while since your insides have simmered down enough for what’s outside to make sense. Nonetheless, it appears you have at least gotten the hang of how to adjust as needed to the consequences of your aspirations. Now begins a season of slow cooking, when it will be better to be fueled more by patient resolve than residual remorse. As with all cooking, you should make palatable results your top priority. Therefore, be moderate and act in good taste.
