Metro Weekly


June 24-June 30, 2010

Heavenly Round-Up: You may already be a winner, and just don’t know it. What happened two weeks ago to radically change how you will live your life from here on out? What happened to refine and redirect your ethics and philosophy in a totally new and unexpected direction? What happened to allow you to let your dreams come true? Whatever it was, that was no fluke — that was your real life calling. So get out there and do your darnedest to help fate help you to help yourself.

Aries: You might focus on how you don’t feel your best. You might reflect on how you’re not appreciated for your vision. You might spend your time being sorry for yourself for any number of reasons. Or you might pull your socks up and become a hero. It’s a choice.

Taurus: Even if you didn’t mean it, you said it and acted on it, and now there’s more than a small price to be paid. Can you dig into your karmic savings to get yourself out of this inadvertent tiger trap into which you’ve fallen? Can you call upon the power of the Earth?

Gemini: It’s easy to point the finger and blame, even if you’re pointing at yourself. It’s easy to call names, even if they aren’t wrong. It’s easy to throw your hands up and let the burden fall from your shoulders as you walk away. Find the positive, difficult solution instead.

Cancer: You are as you were. And yet, the sea change has begun to work deep within you. It will take some time for you to feel the change, and even longer to be able to see it in an external sense. Allow yourself to go with the flow of your internal tide for a change.

Leo: It’s not too late. You’re not at fault. There’s so much that could be done, if you could get off your Lear-ian throne and get on with appreciating that around you which supports your best self and highest good. Try to see what’s been under your nose the whole time.

Virgo: You’re not in the clear, though you’re through the thickest part of the woods. Give yourself props for having made it this far. Give yourself kudos for having gotten so much done under so much pressure with so many constraints on your time. Call a Taurus.

Libra: You could still be a contender, even though you’ve thrown it all away on principle. You were right. You did the right thing. You were treated unfairly. And now you have to let it all go so that you can get on with making the most of your life. It’s an open field.

Scorpio: Nobody is perfect. Nobody is without stain or flaw (nobody living, in any case). But you can still make a run for the best of the best. You can still be number one in your chosen range. You can still invent the measure by which you will succeed. Be courageous.

Sagittarius: What one thing would you change if you could? What one thing would you undo if it were possible? What one thing would make all the difference in the world? It’s harder than you imagined, because one is probably not enough or possible. Forgive yourself.

Capricorn: If you can’t win, will you quit? If you can’t get to the top, will you refuse the challenge altogether? If you can’t have your heart’s desire, will you shut down wholly? Wow, who’s in touch with their inner 4-year-old? Approach from a different angle Sunday.

Aquarius: You were the golden child. Now your tarnish raises questions. You don’t have to hide who and what you are when you’re in the right place. You don’t have to conceal the best part of yourself in front of the right people. Learn to recognize your allies on Friday.

Pisces: If you can’t pick yourself up and keep going, will you just lie there forever? It really isn’t a great option. And you’re worth so much more than that. But you have to stop listening to those negative voices. You’re worth more, you are more. Do your best.


June 17-23, 2010

Heavenly Round-Up: You’re so busy revisiting old business, it’s hard to see where to find time and space for the new matters at hand. Could you reorganize all the leftover bits so that you could better find your way around? Could you build yourself a standpoint from which to view the material before you in order to effect a triage? Could you call in consultants gifted in sorting and prioritizing? Could you make yourself that degree of useful? A solution is at hand — recognize it.

Aries: Look, but don’t touch, unless you’re very certain of your preparedness to deal with the consequences. Consider your resources. Evaluate your personnel. Determine your trajectory. Planning now means you can charge ahead with no worries when the time is ripe. Call a Capricorn.

Taurus: It’s unlike you to allow the little things to get this far out of hand. It’s unusual for you to become so overwhelmed on such short notice. Can you move the deadline? Can you repair the faulty equipment? Can you call on the power of your community to come to your aid?

Gemini: Much as you love being you, you might come to wish you led a simpler life with fewer peripheral complications. At the same time, you wouldn’t trade the circumstances that have brought you this far for anything. So now what? Does resolution have to mean quitting?

Cancer: You are as you have been, but the world around you has shifted and continues to slide in surprising directions every time you take a fresh positional reading. Pretend you’re on a boat. Use the new metaphor to source your successful direction and happy conclusion.

Leo: Don’t give up in the face of that which stands in your way. You are brave enough, talented enough, and supported by sufficient staff to make the grade with bells on. Now you have to act on your capabilities and potentials. The surprises aren’t done arriving. Wake early.

Virgo: Is it your time to shine? Is it your time to set? Can you do both at once? You’re a champion multitasker and there’s plenty ahead to draw on the best of your skills (or the worst of your flaws if you stop paying close attention). Let your instincts have their head Friday.

Libra: You enjoy the intrinsic logistical challenge. You embrace the word puzzle embedded in the conundrum. You elicit best practices from those who have joined you in the action. Now you need to find your inner general and lead the charge with foresight, effectiveness.

Scorpio: It isn’t like you to feel so scattered. It’s unusual for you to find yourself at sea. It makes no sense for you to be so low-energy when so much is at stake. Use your talent for defining to build courses of action requiring little thought, and lots of automated responses.

Sagittarius: You’re on the cusp of a brand-new paradigm. You’re at the brink of a startling discovery. You’re on the verge of finding an entirely new level of interaction. What will you do to push yourself that little bit further? How will you make the most of this opportunity? Act.

Capricorn: Time and tide are with you as long as you stay on course and on schedule. If you fall behind, it will be the devil to pay if you want to catch up. Write everything down. Listen with your whole person. Bring people onboard who are both reliable and compassionate.

Aquarius: You only want the best for all concerned. Your point of view is a little abstract for how most folks think and do. Can you humanize your position? Can you reach out with warmth to those around you? Can you find the juice to make the process inclusive? Ask a Virgo.

Pisces: You only want to feel like there’s a way through. You don’t have to know all the answers. You don’t have to perform flawlessly. You don’t have to know the outcome. But you do have to be fully present and accounted for. Will it take everything you’ve got? Go there.



June 10-16, 2010

Heavenly Round-Up: You broke on through and now you’re in the zone. You’re operating in bullet time and you’re connected to the top of your bent. With your synapses cooking on all four burners, plus the grill, you’re loaded for bear and ready for anything. Now what? Is there some heroic deed you were planning? Some act of invention or discovery you had in mind? Some tribulation to overcome? You could go the distance if you would only step outside yourself for one moment.

Aries: The force is with you. The time is now. The message is the medium. Be careful what you fight for, since you’re likelier to win than you can possibly know. Use your inner strength as well as your visible muscles to get the most from what’s coming up. Wear red for visibility.

Taurus: Don’t give up because the going gets tough. Get tougher instead. You have the perseverance. You have the chops. You have the technology. And you have the sheer guts to get ‘er done. So get on out there and do the best you can with what you have Sunday.

Gemini: It’s easier than becoming invisible. It’s easier than flying. It’s easier than you’d thought, and you thought about it a whole lot. Now you’ve found you’ve over-thought the process altogether. It wouldn’t be the first time changing your mind set you on the right path.

Cancer: You are where you’re meant to be. You are with the necessary people. You have the requisite support. But only you can manifest your desire in the physical world to reflect the goals you hope to achieve. Get focused. Get rested. Get with the program. Now.

Leo: Don’t worry about the hype. Don’t get involved with public perception. You have the support of your community. You have the greater good at the forefront of your commitment to change. You have the character to follow through. Be ethical, then popular.

Virgo: From here to eternity may not be as far as most people imagine. You’re too prosaic to get involved in the abstract, but you really want to understand the limits, and test them to your own satisfaction. Don’t get too close, or you may end up farther out on a limb.

Libra: Certainty is for little children and religious fanatics. The rest of us make do with the best choices under the circumstances. Don’t waste your energy longing for nonexistent perfections. Don’t become distracted by all the bells and whistles and moving parts. Wear blue.

Scorpio: You’re fired up. You’re ready to go. You wonder what the next step is. Happily, more than one little bird will tell you so. Happily, you’re not afraid to believe in talking birds outside of parrot cages and fairy tales. Think pure thoughts whilst committing sleazy deeds.

Sagittarius: It would be more fun for you if you thought anyone cared at all. It’s unusual for you to experience invisibility. Like a sorority hottie at a leather bar, you’re just not the primary object of desire this minute. Use the privacy to get your affairs in order early.

Capricorn: It’s a brand new day. You have an enhanced set of choices. You’re ready to take on an expanded version of the world as of now. Recruit your resources. Consult your cronies. Build your strategy and don’t be afraid to go the distance. Be strong, yet subtle.

Aquarius: It wasn’t you that started the whole thing. But you’re the one left to sweep up and try to get the pieces put back together now that the shattering event is over and the dust has settled. You’re more than capable. You only have to convince one superior.

Pisces: Define success. Shortly, you’ll find yourself in the position of redefining success. This is a good thing. This could be a great thing. But you’ll have to use your imagination in order to get the most from this once in a life-cycle event. The next few years matter most.


June 3-9, 2010

Heavenly Round-Up: Go on. You know you want to. You can pretend differently, but nearly everyone can see the truth writ large upon your face. No need to hide. No need to pretend. No need to dissemble. It’s not your turn for that anymore. You can be yourself, out in the open with your whole heart. Isn’t that a pleasant change of affairs? Now you need to convince those around you that they have the same freedom to be themselves that you do. It’s not too late….

Aries: Look around, closely and carefully. There are details that may make all the difference to your conclusions, but you won’t know if you don’t pay attention right now. Get outside your usual perspective. Ask for help if you don’t know where to start. Call a Gemini.

Taurus: You used to be less certain, but more proactive. You used to be less experienced, but more versatile. You used to be less capable, but more willing. What’s changed? Could you change it back? What would better results with less effort be worth to you right now?

Gemini: Here at the threshold of the doors of perception, you stand vacillating — full of wonder and hesitation. Why are you in stasis now of all times? What would it take to get you to come down on the side of decision with which you could stick? When will you know better?

Cancer: Everything is less complicated, but harder. Everyone is less hostile, but more indifferent. Everywhere is somewhere else you just don’t want to be. Is this the right time to come down with a case of world weariness? Are you too sophisticated for your own good?

Leo: Now your resources are stretched to the max in every possible direction. This might be a good test of your broader capabilities. It might also be way more stressful than you had foreseen. There are some situations for which proper planning can’t do much.

Virgo: Your desire nature kicks back in, and you’re no longer content to stand above and outside the fray. You want to get more than your hands dirty. You want to positively roll in it and get covered with it from head to toe. Can you restrain yourself? Should you?

Libra: Part of what you’d hoped for seems to have disappeared as you slept. Part of what you’d thought might come to be slipped away when you turned your attention elsewhere. Part of what you’d anticipated seems to have headed off in another direction altogether. Reboot.

Scorpio: You swore you would if you could. Now is the time if you would only recognize the fact. You’re in the place where you can do the most with what you have. Will you own the truth to yourself? It’s not about confession. It’s all about action in a timely fashion.

Sagittarius: Pretend the whole world is your oyster. What changes? What stays the same? What would you give to make your dreams come true? What would you accept to bring yourself closer to a more perfect union? Pursue happiness, or it might come for you first.

Capricorn: Determination will carry you pretty far. But it won’t take you all the way there. You’ll have to let go of your most rigid definitions in order to make room for an expansive version of your life that leaves you breathless with delight and endless anticipation.

Aquarius: You peeked. And though you ought not to have done so, you’ve learned what you might not otherwise have found out in good time. This is your reward, and your punishment. Do with the facts what you must, but don’t blame anyone else for the outcome.

Pisces: It’s your turn. It’s your turn to be amazed. It’s your turn to get lucky. It’s your turn to find the prize first and come back with the right answer before the clock runs out. You have a talent, a technique and the timing. Now all you need is one good backer. Look!
