Planet Waves Alt Horoscope – August 2009


(March 20-April 19)
You may not know what you want. There can be significant pleasure in considering your options, and you’re more likely to make a good decision if you do it from there rather than a place of angst or hot inner debate. Before you decide, anything is possible. The good part is that after you decide, most things are still possible.

Taurus (April 19- May 20)
Some things you cannot have a strategy for, and passion is one of them. Something in your charts suggests that this is what you’re trying to do; I suggest you ask yourself why. Yes, you seem to be of two minds about something important, but your feelings are certainly telling you something that doesn’t need to be analyzed.

Gemini (May 20- June 21)
Mars making a prolonged visit in your sign cautions against feeling too confident or too certain in any decision you’re making. You are as likely to feel as strongly about one side of any issue as you are about another — and then to change your mind. This could be perfectly insufferable for friends or loved ones; so you need to make sure you listen for a long time before you speak, and make sure people know you might change your mind.

Cancer (June 21- July 22)
Venus and Mercury working together says you can balance your feelings and your ideas. For example, approaching the quest for deeper relationships from a place of contentment rather than need will open their potential. Believe it or not, this is a decision we make. So, too, is the choice how to react if you get spooked.

Leo (July 22- Aug. 23)
You actually might be able to take a week off for your birthday this year. Cash flow should be improving, or at least you know you have a plan. Mainly you’re in a rare moment when people are more likely to keep their problems to themselves, and not depend on you as the usual solution. Make a plan, and get away while you can.

Virgo (Aug. 23- Sep. 22)
This has not been the easiest year of your life. If I were your brain, I would need a cup of ginkgo tea. Conduct a 20-minute review and you’ll notice that you’ve worked your way into a relatively sane and stable place. I don’t want to bias the study results, but if you do this one right, you’ll be blessed with a feeling of confidence.

Libra (Sep. 22 – Oct. 23)
A real conversation about your feelings is finally possible. You’ve had so much practice talking about everyone else’s feelings the past few months that you’re likely to be an expert by now. Relationship matters will be easier if you resolve sooner rather than later to forgive someone who has hurt your feelings.

Scorpio (Oct. 23- Nov. 22)
You are friendlier and more generous than some people think, and you cannot control their perception of you. However, you’re unlikely to be particularly consistent this month. You need plenty of room to change your mind, and I suggest that you decide in advance that you don’t care if this pisses certain people off.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 22)
By now you’ve noticed that this is a very unusual time in your life. Generally there is a kind of glass barrier between what we think is possible and what actually happens. Now it’s more like a clear curtain. If you don’t walk up to it and touch it, you might not be able to tell the difference.

Capricorn (Dec. 22- Jan. 20)
Your worst fear may be that if you take a small chance, you’ll take another small chance and then you’ll take a big chance and eventually risk it all. Therefore, it would be better to quit while you are neither ahead nor behind, and be happy with what you’ve got. While you could call that life, you definitely can’t call it living.

Aquarius (Jan. 20- Feb. 19)
Now is the time to put into action all the things you’ve been thinking, brewing and conspiring –- and you will get results sooner rather than later. Your mind never rests, so while you’re busy with your latest round of working your plan, you seem to be gearing up for another round of planning your work. Don’t forget to plan some fun.

Pisces (Feb. 19- March 20)
If your life seems to be taking you deeper into a mystery, pretend you’re writing a novel. Some authors like to know the ending of the story before they start the book, and some like to be surprised by the outcome. Which would you prefer? You can afford to let things take their course; anyway the real mystery is how you truly feel.
