Horoscope

September 1-7, 2011

Heavenly Round-Up: Is this a case of less is more? Is this a case of more being less? It’s hard to know when you’re standing so close to the matter at hand. Take a few steps back to gain valuable perspective. Take a few more steps back and formulate a strategy. Now, a few more steps back and you’ll have long-term vision and short-term tactics well in hand. You can take this one as far as you choose to go; just never forget to attend to the pesky details.

Aries: You’re one in a million. Or that’s how it feels. No question, you’re special; but you ought not to expect your specialness to extend past your own circle of intimates. If you try to bring your exemptions from normal expectations to the law or society, you won’t win easily.

Taurus: You’re no slouch. You just don’t choose to hurry ungracefully. You’ve given your cooperation; but that’s not the same thing as blind obedience. You may be misunderstood, or even underestimated, but your true worth remains constant and surprising. Shine.

Gemini: You aren’t to blame, but if you don’t shut up people will assume you’re protesting too much and pin the fault on you in any case. Let go of your denials and try to put a positive, forward spin on what needs to happen next. Recovery is well within your purview.

Cancer: Once you were secure. Now you’re on an adventure. Every day is special. Every moment is finite. And each is all the more precious for that. Take a moment to appreciate what you have this second. Live in the present. Breathe in thanks, exhale praise!

Leo: Your dominion over your own course of life is unquestionable. But the more you choose to share your life path, the more constrained your choices become. Will you perceive the bonds that hold you back? Or can you focus on the love that expands you infinitely?

Virgo: You’ve got a groove and you’re not afraid to express it. The gentle inner rhythm of life makes every move of the day a dance in its own right. Feel the beat deeply. Let it move within you and with you. Become more than you were by getting into the pulse.

Libra: You’re no mystic. You’re no prophet. You’re no howling oracle. But there’s an awareness at the edge of your conscious perception and it’s tugging at your metaphysical coattails. Pay attention to what you don’t yet know. Listen for the silent details to be transmitted.

Scorpio: If it were only the once, that would be plenty. But you’re back where you were before and you’ve started up the cycle once again, intentionally or not. So prep yourself for the heavy weather ahead and don’t be afraid to ask for much-needed help.

Sagittarius: Slam on the brakes at your own discretion. But you might as well take your foot off the gas and coast on in. It’ll save wear and tear on your nerves if nothing else. You’ve got a good enough sense of timing, you only have to trust yourself to use it.

Capricorn: Between here and there are infinite variables and you’re so busy trying to number and file them all that you’ve allowed forward motion to grind to a halt. This once, allow the details to mind themselves. You have bigger and more important fish to fry.

Aquarius: Give yourself a pat on the back. Give yourself a big hand. Give yourself an inner promotion. You’ve done really well. And others are beginning to allow as how you’ve been a hero in the final reel. Now you need to choose how to make the most of social capital.

Pisces: You could. You have before. You didn’t much like it then, but there’s been a lot of water under the bridge and you might even find you’ve grown into it by now. Let go of the prejudices from the past. Try to bring yourself into the present with promptitude.

Horoscope

August 25-31, 2011

Heavenly Round-Up: Sliding into closure for events you’ve been deconstructing for a long while, don’t look back over your shoulder just yet. Bring your faith to the table, and keep your eyes on the prize. It would be easy to say, ”This is too difficult.” It would be simple to say, ”This is too complex.” It would be selling yourself short to say, ”This has taken too long already.” Gird up your loins, hoist your petard and make every effort to cross the finish line before giving up.

Aries: It is honest criticism and not contumely to hear that which may improve your current performance. Is your skin thick enough to absorb the truth? Is your pride enough in check to allow you to act on this useful information? Rein in your fight-or-flight impulses.

Taurus: You may already be in love. You may only be falling in love. You may even be falling out of love, but you still ought to have access to all those lovely endorphins. Long, hot baths may help. Virtual shopping (the kind where you look but don’t buy) may help. Choose.

Gemini: If your choice is the devil or the deep blue sea, you may want to pack an extra pair of swim trunks. You don’t have to sink to the lowest common denominator to see your vision come true. You don’t have to cave to find a viable compromise. Listen selectively.

Cancer: You’ve been walking on your version of the wild side: no stability, no safety net, no guarantees of a happy outcome. You may have to hang fire there a while longer. But vitamin B supplementation and alternative health care practitioners make it easier.

Leo: You’re in charge where you can be. But there’s a call to service and a needful supporting position with your name on it. Are you big enough to let this be someone else’s time to lead? Are you strong enough to take orders and do your very best? Call early Tuesday.

Virgo: You would if you could, but you’re not sure you can. You’ve lost your way in a bewildering forest of details and decisions. You might do better to get a perspective with some perspective in it. Go for height over sheer distance if you really want to know the whole.

Libra: What do you really want? What matters most? What counts at the end of the day? You can get from here to there. You’ll have to make a lot of firm choices. You’ll have to forgo the leisurely discussions, heated arguments and general poking around, though.

Scorpio: Once upon a time you were confident, brave and unassailable. Not so much these days. What can you do to round up your missing mojo? It might surprise – and behoove – you to ask your community for insight and feedback. Let go of your self-sufficiency for now.

Sagittarius: It’s a roll, and you’re on it. It’s a challenge and you have no choice but to face it (or so you tell yourself). It’s a double-dog dare and you won’t back down. Good for you. Now get out there and make your boast manifest in the world. You shall overcome.

Capricorn: It doesn’t have to be this hard. It doesn’t have to be all up hill. It doesn’t have to be tedious, and it can be done with a lot less suffering. Bring your best attitude to the table. Bring your love of the work and your satisfaction in completing it along with you.

Aquarius: It’s not as though you got where you are without external inputs. You fancy yourself a loner, but this planet’s too crowded for that to be the whole truth. Now’s the time to assess what your contacts are and how best to get where you really want to be.

Pisces: Are you swimming through the air? Are you flying in the dirt? Are you dreaming in deep contradictions? There’s a message about literalism and its limitations in those questions. You may not need the literal truths to get at the actual facts of the matter. Reassess.

August 18-24, 2011

Heavenly Round-Up: Is reality catching up to your ideological hopes? Does that have to be a big bummer, or could there be a better point of view in store for you? Those aren’t lemons, and you won’t be making lemonade — but you can still do better as you shift into your ”A” game and get fully with the program. If fancy footwork is called for, limber up and do a few practice runs before your public performance. You have much to offer, if you would only admit it to yourself.

Aries: It’s a look, and you could do with a makeover at this point. You’re good at what you do, and you may as well look good doing it, don’t you think? So ask a style maven how to reshape your image, then set a budget and get to work. Remember: budget first, shop after.

Taurus: You’re so dependable. You’re like the sun coming up in the morning. And yes, you get taken for granted in that very same way. You’re not splashy, you’re stable. There’s no point in regretting your sturdy utility and unwavering capability. Wear blue for emphasis.

Gemini: You’ve been around the block on your tricycle so many times you’re making the neighbors dizzy too. You’ve been up the road and down the road, carrying water and mending fences. You’re the glue holding your social circle together. Could you also improve it?

Cancer: It’s time to call on your family and friends, and even acquaintances to come to your aid. You’re in a pickle, but it’s not insurmountable if you can bring yourself to reach out to the peeps you’ve collected over time. You have nothing to be ashamed of. Nothing. At. All.

Leo: You want to go for it. You need to go for it. You know that going for it might be the straw to break your already over-burdened back. Right? You know that! Consider what you might release before taking on any new projects. You are finite at the end of the day.

Virgo: If you’re running around wringing your hands muttering ”out, out damned spot” either you’re Lady Macbeth or you’ve gone a little OCD about the laundry. Step back from your latest obsession and try to frame your concerns within the context of the big picture.

Libra: You’re the tops. You’re number one with a bullet. You’re A-OK. Now you’ve got to believe it. Now you’ve got to instruct your partner to help you get from where you are to where you need to be so that you can put your back into being the best that you can be.

Scorpio: It’s not really all about you. It’s all about making your way in the real world: sans paranoia, sans distrust, sans Machiavellian fallback positions. No really. You’ll have to let go of those ”indispensable” bells and whistles if you want to catch up and get ahead.

Sagittarius: How’ve you been doing lately? Have you been eating for nutritional inputs? Have you been getting enough sleep? Have you been getting enough exercise? Have you been toning your mental state by keeping up with your social circle? Get on the stick!

Capricorn: It’s not that complicated. You want what (or who) you want. You want it how you want it. And you want it when you want it. However, this is not your vanished toddlerhood, and the world is not your inadequate Mommy that you should be so whiney.

Aquarius: You’ve been walking on the wild side, just to get a rise out of your inner parent. Now how is that productive? Couldn’t you simply make a small killing in real estate? Or grow a fabulous window box full of herbs? Or take tango lessons ’til you’re irresistible?

Pisces: You weren’t looking for this connection, but it’s there nonetheless. You weren’t angling for the upgrade, but it’s at your disposal if you so choose. You weren’t counting on the sibling intervention, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t necessary. Does it?

Horoscope

August 11-18, 2011

Heavenly Round-Up: You’re heading for a culmination. Keep in mind that this is no longer about you, but about larger, ideological concepts and their manifestation in daily life. Keep in mind that you represent something greater than yourself, even as you bring all you have to bear on who you are and your right to be as you choose. Keep in mind that some fundamentals never shift: Fair is fair, right is not wrong, and you really shouldn’t wear paisley with stripes. Stay true to yourself.

Aries: You have what it takes to make yourself known to and appreciated by your community. You have what it takes to work within the system for change, or work outside the system for revolution. You decide which is the most efficient method for achieving your goals.

Taurus: You’ve been patient, but now your time may be at hand. Are you ready, or have you been in your starting crouch for so long that your joints have locked and your muscles all frozen? Limber up with word games and a good application of yoga or massage.

Gemini: You won’t be able to escape the dictates of your higher mind. You won’t be able to shut down the preaching of your ethical self. You won’t be able to censor your dreams before they tell you the truth. So think carefully before you make any long-term choices.

Cancer: Find a balance in your relationship to find a balance within yourself. Sometimes you have to depend on the outer world to find your inner best-practices. This may be such a time. Your vulnerability will be offset by your extended reach. Is the trade-off worth it?

Leo: It’s not always all about you. Sometimes it is, but the form is confusing as you’re presented with an external reflection of the internal consideration. Evaluate extensively. Listen to your intuition, but leaven it with such reasoning as you have at your disposal. Wear gold.

Virgo: You’ve been on a slow boat to China, or the life change equivalent thereof, for some time now. You’re approaching a possible point of disembarkation. Prepare for the shift in choices and strategies: Tone up your diet, pay attention to well-meant advice from cronies.

Libra: It’s not the end of the world. It’s not the end of anything. It’s the beginning of a whole new life phase. It’s the beginning of a brand new means of perceiving and acting. It’s the beginning of what you’d been holding out for all these years. Celebrate early.

Scorpio: Desire wears a lot of strange masks in your life. Do you really long for the gothic simplicity of your family of origin? Or are you only comforting yourself with ghost stories and fables? You may need to man up and face the music sooner rather than later.

Sagittarius: Are you still looking for that ideal resolution? What if there isn’t one? Granted, it’s not easy to prove a negative. But assume that you’re in damage control mode for now, and work to try to right the course of your personal ship of state posthaste.

Capricorn: Your sensibilities have been trampled on. Your sensitivities have all flared up. Your personal space has definitely been violated. Is this a challenge or a pillaging? Can you find the good in what you’ve been dealing with, or should you have to? Ask Sunday.

Aquarius: So much to do and become and work through and work on, you hardly know where to start. Equally, you want to be centered and focused and direct as you proceed through this time of change. Will you get up earlier to clear your head? Wednesday’s the target!

Pisces: You didn’t forget, so much as shelve that promising premise. Is it time to resurrect your little hobby and get it out there for all the world to see? Is it time to develop your potential and follow your dreams, however impractical? Is it time for a pedicure?
