Aries (March 20-April 19) — In many ways, chaos has become a way of life. It’s no longer possible to expect stability, consistency or a coherent meeting of the minds. Yet you might feel like those things are expected of you. This may be the cause of considerable tension, as you do your best to keep your commitments while the world seems flakier every day. Or at least we can hope that is your problem: under the current astrology, you may not have a grip on yourself. If that is true, address the matter forthrightly with partners or anyone who is counting on you. The solution is to communicate, not to go silent. Request an adjustment to expectations if you must. As for meeting your commitments, there are people who will help you, though you need to choose well. You want those who are disciplined and a little stoic. If you must delegate, assign work to people who deliver, rather than those who merely promise. The promisers may look good; those who deliver may seem dull by comparison. Here is the key: work only with those who honor time, and can meet deadlines.
Self-assertive, sometimes bold, Aries is always up for an adventure. A new adventure awaits — preorder your affordable reading by Eric Francis today.

Taurus (April 19-May 20) — What exactly is bothering you? I have an idea. Taurus may be the most perfectionistic sign of them all, to the point of setting standards for yourself that are impossible to meet. At the same time, momentous activity in Aquarius is calling you to set an impeccable example for others as integral to your leadership role. There may be moments when you feel like a hypocrite for not being a model for what you want from others. Yet you might ask whether there really is a disparity; whether you’re not judging yourself a little harshly. You are probably asking for less than you deliver, though that would make a good point of evaluation. This is not so much about proving yourself but rather about a sense of equilibrium. A good guide might be: not expecting others to do what you won’t do. Yet what if something requires technical expertise that is over your head? You can set an example in the form of always being willing to learn, and to assist in the ways that it’s possible for you to do so.
Calm, collected and attractive on the outside, raging like a tempest on the inside, Taurus is the blacksmith shop of the soul. Forge your path with this reading.

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — What has come to light the past few days is now in awareness, and is in play. You probably feel better. Now it is up to you to be fair-minded and to tidy up any misunderstandings. Your good intentions are not enough: they never are. Commitment is what counts, or what you might call Dharma. That means doing your part to hold together a world that is under considerable stress right now. If you notice that you have not been wholly honest with yourself or with others, make the corrections — gradually if need be. Take care of anything you may have neglected. Make sure that you clear the fog of any commitments made to you that don’t seem to be realistic. Make your adjustments incrementally, and look for a solution that serves everyone. If you do, you will find it. Mars in your sign is passing through its square to Neptune, and will soon make a trine to Jupiter. This carries some promise that a win-win situation is available. One usually is, though it’s vital to use that kind of thinking now.
Geminis ask a heck of a lot of questions, and much of what you are curious about is yourself. Find some answers in your affordable reading by Eric Francis.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — The best thing you can do is be yourself. The second-best thing you can do is have clear agreements with others. The two are closely related, as the context of your relationships with others is so critical to your ability to function. There must be a real measure of order and organization, more so for you than nearly anyone else. You need to have reasonable expectations and then to have those expectations be met. This requires an understanding that goes a little further than the world usually delivers these days, or has even heard of. However, that cannot get in your way. You need to build your world on your terms, despite the prevailing condition of society or the people in it. There may not be many people you can work with on those terms, so therefore, trim back if necessary. The one thing you would be wise to avoid is falling prey to your insecurities. Stand up for yourself in ways large and small. Challenge people to be real with themselves and with you. Make that your personal credo.

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Your spiritual quest continues in a world where this journey has now become an entirely practical matter. While the cosmos may not be binary, on Earth the journey comes down to one of love versus fear. This seeps into every transaction, every choice, every moment of perception. The question at the moment is, what do you do when people are making the sublime terror known as anxiety a way of life? What do you do when people around you are giving up? What do you do when they deem anger and judgment to be love and civic-mindedness? Worse, what happens when this becomes a way of life? That is when you must set off on your own, on the path of the sannyasin: one who abandons their claims and ties to the social world. I don’t mean this in the strict sense of the term from Hinduism, but rather in the sense of one who is an independent seeker of their own knowledge and destiny. Most of the togetherness of the old world was a ruse. Categories were falsely misnamed as communities. You will find the real thing by setting off on your own. For you, this is the path of liberation.
Leo is THE sign of human vitality and in many respects the source of strength, light and creation. How’s this for a bright idea: get your reading by Eric Francis!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — You can now set your goals more clearly, as long as you don’t mingle them up with the goals of others — or what you perceive as their expectations of you. You may not be hung up on what anyone actually thinks, but rather what you think they think. Your life at the moment is an exercise of separating your identity from that of other people. In some ways this has always been true. Yet it is coming into full focus now, with Chiron and Eris provoking you to be self-aware in a way that may seem frightening at times. That is the edge you want to work: the zone where you feel uncertain. Long ago, a teacher named Alan Watts wrote a book called The Wisdom of Insecurity. It is one of my favorites from my early spiritual path in this lifetime. Here is a taste: “The desire for security and the feeling of insecurity are the same thing. To hold your breath is to lose your breath. A society based on the quest for security is nothing but a breath-retention contest in which everyone is as taut as a drum and as purple as a beet.”
As a Virgo, it’s your role to make the world a better place: to offer, if not solace, then solutions. Find both for yourself when you purchase your reading.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — You may feel like you’re going through some agonizing death and rebirth process. It may seem to be about your relationships. But it’s really about you and you alone. Much of what I said for Virgo (above) applies to you. But your inner state these particular days is more pronounced, with the feeling of not being able to escape some enforced change or transformation. That is the sensation of Venus square Pluto. This relatively transient aspect is emphasizing the message of much other longer-term astrology, so the immediate situation you’re in may feel disproportionate. It is not; what Venus is doing is making it personal. There is something about you, and your approach to life and to your relationships, that has served its purpose and needs to transform itself. Taking this out of New Age language, there is something that is at its end-point, and you will be much happier about embracing the future if you recognize that and use it to your advantage. You have had other opportunities to take this leap, but none so poignant as right now.
Aleister Crowley said that the essence of the sign Libra is the drive for justice. Tap into your essence with this reading, and bring balance to your world.
2020-21 Libra Astrology Studio: Notes to Myself
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Your ruling planet Mars in Gemini has been through an ordeal, and taken you with it. You might call this a test of truth, or a proving, of a certain kind. Mars has been square Neptune in Pisces for many weeks, which will culminate in a few days. There is likely the sensation of burning off karma in a sexual relationship. Given that the signs involved are Gemini and Pisces, the feeling may be akin to a David Lynch-like hall of mirrors. This is potentially entertaining. It may be great fun, and could surely be under certain conditions. Yet the ultimate message is that relationships either create or resolve karma. You are learning something about the power of sex and sexual attraction to make more of whatever is there. Yet the true benefit of this astrology is the ability to see just how much of being in a relationship is relating to yourself. This is the open secret; this is the seemingly elusive truth that is taboo to acknowledge. Relationships become more meaningful as you figure out what they are.
Scorpio is an odd hybrid, both a product — and an instigator — of evolution. Purchase your latest reading to delve deeper into the mystery of yourself.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — You simply must grapple with an issue from your past that is clouding your judgment of the present. It’s the same thing you keep getting stuck on though may not realize it because it comes in different forms each time it comes around. There are several things going on. One is that as someone born under a mutable sign, you tend to think of yourself as a flexible person. Yet your mind has the quality of a fixed sign, in particular, Aquarius. That suggests that you don’t change your ways or your way of thinking so easily. You may think of yourself as objective and science-minded, though you might do a study of the steps that you took to reach any truth you hold dear. When was the last time you reevaluated it? Saturn in this angle of your chart for the foreseeable future is pushing you to do just that. Jupiter is there temporarily, which is all about what you would seem to know, though Saturn brings the critical element of doubt. And those doubts will be compelling enough to get you to stop and reconsider, well, just about everything.
Sagittarius, yours is the sign of the quest, the far away and far-out. Purchase your reading today and continue your adventure with the stars as your guide.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — The world is in a state of mania over being accepted by groups. There are days when it seems like the planet has turned into a version of the infamous Jonestown, with everyone jonesing to be part of the club. This is spiraling to the point of obsession, due to influences in both Aries and Aquarius. Which club? Well, look around. There are a lot of them, and they are extremely popular. But the question is, when you get in, what’s the vibe? Just because it says PEACE AND LOVE on the door does not mean that’s what you get when you walk in. I propose being extremely cautious of two things: one is any group that thinks it’s better than any other group, even if it defines that other group as bad individuals. Two is any conflation of morality and spiritual elevation with medical status. This is the elixir of tyrants, who use their influence to declare war between the supposedly clean and the unclean. Remember it was Jesus, said to be a Capricorn, who washed a leper with his bare hands.
We depend upon Capricorn to hold things stable. But you’re not as boring as you like people to think you are. Unearth your inner revolutionary with this reading.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Saturn is often mistaken to be the agent of being stuck. I’ve probably said this a few times, though it bears repeating as Saturn is in your sign — the one it has the strongest association with. It’s true that there are several ways to experience this (one for everyone in the world, though two in the broad sense). The first is the obstacle, and the other is the lever. Often with Saturn, the obstacle works as a lever. It’s the thing you have to get around, so you invent a new route. It’s the problem that presents itself, leading to an invention. It is the sensation of feeling small that can provoke the need to grow. Of all signs, Saturn in Aquarius is what you make of it. It can be woefully dogmatic, or impeccably fair. There are many factors, but mostly, the difference is about not just what you want but how much work you’re willing to do. For example, it is easy to have an opinion. It is difficult to get to the truth. Beware of “there is no truth.” That is a trap.
You’re not after progress for its own sake; Aquarius is the discriminating embracer of innovation that works. Get your reading and be brilliant.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — You are in a position to make some radical changes in your financial picture, and don’t be afraid to. Make sure that your spending cuts are more valued than your increases. You need to spend less, not more, and you need to reassign your values. Mostly, to the greatest extent possible, your financial priorities must match your wider life priorities. We have all heard of voting with your dollars. Think of this as voting for yourself with your dollars, quid, euros, yen, pesos or rubles. This is the way that money “is spiritual.” It is an affirmation of your reality. Let this come from the inside out. Recognize that you are changing and part of how you can guide that change is to invest in what matters, to you. You may find that this sparks a revolution in your heart, your values and in your appreciation of your preferences and understanding of life. Do one radical thing for yourself — something you might ordinarily be too conservative to do, or think would in some way be inappropriate.
