Horoscope

January 26-February 1, 2012

Heavenly Round-Up: You’re more alive to change and the possibility of replacing old habits and crutches with fresh perspectives and active rehabilitation. Oddly, you also find yourself stymied whenever you attempt direct action. Ultimately, now is a good time to plan, to strategize, to develop proactive tactics and to build up reserves so that when you’re good to go, you’re really good to go. As you hustle to and fro, don’t forget to devote some time to developing your ability to express meaningful compassion. ”There, there” won’t do.

Aries: You’re ready to spring into action. Your health is solid. Your heart is in it. Your advice is sound. But there are obstacles between you and your objectives. Most of them have to do with the needs of those around you. Suddenly, you’re nanny to the universe. Be brave.

Taurus: You’ve got what it takes, and you’ve got to get rid of whatever’s holding you back. You don’t have to be in a hurry to change your less-than-contributory ways, but you do have to be sincere as you restructure your life to meet your current needs. Shop by remote.

Gemini: If it were as easy as it seemed when you got started, everyone would already have been there and back again with great success. Will you back off, now that you see the scope of the task at hand? Will you spend more time planning? Will you plow ahead anyway?

Cancer: It’s an ill wind that blows no good. And it’s true this time. What was a problem undergoes a sea change and becomes a special vantage point and even an opportunity. Don’t overlook this obvious reversal because it doesn’t jive with your accepted dogma.

Leo: You’re slowing down just as you most needed to gain momentum. You’re blocked in just as you began to see the glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. Happily, the resolution is only delayed and not denied. What part can you play in rehabilitating your timeline?

Virgo: Don’t listen to the threats and suppositions. Not only did you not cause the problem, you may also hold the key to the solution in your unique skill set and experiential parameters. Don’t be afraid to go forward against odds and advice. You’re in the right.

Libra: Systems become institutions. Once they achieve that heightened designation, their primary purpose is self-perpetuation. You may need to instigate an internal culture war. Break down your established routines and revamp your expectations. Yes, you can!

Scorpio: Your people are with you in spirit. Right now, they can’t get away to come and hold your hand. Right now, they’re up their collective ass in snapping alligators. But they really do understand; and they really are on your side through this difficult time. Chin up.

Sagittarius: You gave till it hurt and were told you hadn’t done enough. You bled yourself dry, but haven’t seen any credit for your heroism. You walked through fire for your ideals and found the goal farther away when you reached the other side. Keep going.

Capricorn: You’re on an active course to deepen your self-respect and open your heart to a greater understanding. No, this isn’t about religious conversion. This is more about taking personal responsibility for the world you’ve created for yourself.

Aquarius: Persistence is a good thing. Stubbornness can sustain one indefinitely. Certitude allows one to go forward with confidence. Still, you may find you have a pressing need to re-examine some of your core assumptions. They may not be all that axiomatic.

Pisces: You’ve been around and around with the pros and the cons. The pros give great advice. The cons offer strong support. Are they mutually exclusive? Are all your beliefs set firmly in stone, or do you have some wiggle room? Reassess with a trusted crony.

Horoscope

January 12-18, 2012

Heavenly Round-Up: What’s that up ahead? The big, suddenly noticeable thing you’ve never seen before in your life? Isn’t it funny how one second you’re all alone and on your own, and the next you’re surrounded by a form of community such as you’d never previously envisioned? Is it funny or merely one of those twists and turns on the path of life necessary to convince us how little we understand of the larger forces shaping the world around us? There’s an ace up your sleeve: use it!

Aries: Insanity doesn’t run in your family, it saunters coolly and with a sense of entitlement. What can you do about it? What are you willing to do about it? If you can keep your head whilst all about you are losing theirs, you’ll do just fine. Stick with the simple truths Friday.

Taurus: You’re coming back into your own. You’ve got that large-as-life thing which worked so well for the classic cowboys of the cinematic West. Can you turn your enhanced presence into an enhanced opportunity for longer term success? Ask a Pisces after six.

Gemini: Start peering around corners and out from under shadowy movables. You’re ready to go underground, to indulge in a little espionage, to play fast-and-loose with facts and numbers. You’re on to exploit the means which the end justifies. Clean your closet carefully.

Cancer: Look out over the emerging situation. Where do you want to strengthen your contributions? How do you want to maximize your opportunities? What will you use to develop areas of weakness? When will you be able to see threats as legitimate challenges? Reflect.

Leo: Substance plays a role this time as well. Have you been minding your manners and keeping an eye on the details? If not, have you been able to find an appropriate individual or team to whom you may safely delegate those responsibilities? You’re still unbroken!

Virgo: Sometimes, views are the most memorable. This time, it was the odors. Your nose brings powerful associations along with its current perceptions. Are you at the mercy of this notorious mnemonic trigger? Disentangle your common sense from the other five.

Libra: Are you lucky or only fortunate in your timing? It may be important to be able to make the distinction before the week is out. You have a close circle of cronies; call on them to provide feedback or to act as sounding boards when you’re ready to decide.

Scorpio: You’ve heard it all before. You’ve overheard even more than that. You’re the master of listening without even appearing to be within earshot. So make a point of listening even more, and even more carefully. You’ll receive an indirect message Sunday.

Sagittarius: Portents and omens fly at the edges of your visual range. If you turn to see them, they slip away or melt. Your dreams are as vivid, and as slippery. Take it as read that you’re living in intensely interesting times. Believe you’ll come out the other side.

Capricorn: Each step you take places you concretely along the path of your choosing. Stay alert. Be conscious. Prop your third eye open by force if necessary. Key material becomes available to those who look for it actively. Don’t be afraid to set your standards high.

Aquarius: You’re liking the tone life has taken. You’re still not thrilled with your overhead. Could the flaw, if any, be in your assumptions? You may wish to call on someone more practiced at practicalities to give your budget a once-over before you start job hunting.

Pisces: Pennies from Heaven add up if you keep them together. You’ll find the income streams from work you do on the side to be more significant now than ever before. Are you ready to make a new career for yourself? Would you like to be so self-directed? Have faith.

Horoscope

January 5-11, 2012

Heavenly Round-Up: Facing the rigors of the present and the demands of the future, you’re more than a little nostalgic for the simplicities of the past. Can you turn back the clock? Would you if you really could? You may be forgetting some of the motives that have brought you to where you stand today. Give yourself some time to adjust, but don’t give in to the urge to retreat. You’ll find you have renewed focus and purpose once you catch a breather. Let serendipity make your choices Saturday.

Aries: You may be gliding along on a wing and a prayer, but you’re going to have to have something more concrete to support you when you’re ready to take a break. Keep an eye out for a good roost. Look for something that offers shelter and a view. Wear red.

Taurus: You’re a juggernaut. But you’re not sure where it is you’re going with such a driven forward motion. Do you need to slow down to see where you’re going? Do you need to take advice to choose a productive direction? Do you need to hit the white sales early?

Gemini: The times seem to press the light out of life like grapes in a press. Are you afraid of the dark? Are you nervous you’ll get lost? Are you concerned the stains won’t come out? Make space in your life for the new energies, which will then come flooding in.

Cancer: You’re the standard bearer for this cycle. You stand for warmth and commitment and settled activity. Can you manage all that without falling into a rut? Can you adjust your routine to provide you with the finer moments in daily living without compromising?

Leo: If your dreams came true tomorrow, would you be happier? Would your life be less complicated? Would the unintended consequences outweigh the benefits? Continue to push against the odds. Continue to fight the good fight. Continue to allow others to help.

Virgo: When did sense become sensitivity? When did foreknowledge morph into forbearance? When did your life path take a radical turn onto the road less traveled? Will you backtrack? Will you move along on this journey into a new way of being and becoming?

Libra: You’ve always had what it takes to succeed in your life. You’ve always had the skills to make the decisions that bring you the most growth and challenge. You’ve always had the gift of seeing unusual solutions to everyday problems. Implement now!

Scorpio: Are you tired of running yet? Are you bored with hiding? Are you done with blaming? If so, it’s more than past time to move on and get caught up with your real life and your true purpose. You have everything you need, if you’ll release your pride and move on.

Sagittarius: What once were daydreams now are realities. Have you achieved all you’d hoped? Have you received all you need? Have you made the plan to carry you into success beyond your wildest expectations? Like Pip, your relief comes out of left field.

Capricorn: Take the dare. Put your money down on the bet. Invest in the innovation. You’re doing the right things at the right time in the right place. This degree of confluence is rare, and precious. Don’t waste a minute of this useful, valuable cycle.

Aquarius: Run down? Drained? Discombobulated? You’ve been pushing hard to get to where you stand. You’ve been burning the candle at both ends. You’ve been up to your ears in snapping alligators as you wade the murky waters of the present. Seek dry land.

Pisces: Look around you. Now feel the ground beneath your feet. Listen for the typical sounds of daily life. Use these sensations to ground yourself before you go out on your long-delayed, much longed-for dream quest. You’ll need the point of reference by Monday.
