Since June 13 and until Nov. 27, a rare planetary transit forces the truth to make itself known. We are getting an intensified dose of reality. We must rouse ourselves from this rapturous lecture and proceed to lab. 2008-9 bring an unprecedented majority of Earth influence. Not since 1989 and 1994 has Earth been effective. The following remains relevant through Sept. 2009. For a personal reading, e-mail me at email@example.com.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Brave the chaos! You will be the one left standing. If you know your power, and withhold, you will give yourself time enough to apply a system and get the answer. Those who are going down want company. Don’t waste time commiserating. Be alone but not lonely. It’s all about you; stop seeking approval. Develop strength of will.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Challenges to the status quo will finally get your attention. This is not a time for your usual choices. You are so objective that you can’t see what you require; you might confuse selflessness with self-sabotage. Critical figures in your ambitious ascent are gathering. Be quietly removed and let them approach. Strategize.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
The eagle is by nature a loner. At times, this is your power and control. Now you must see your aspirations as part of a group effort. Recent short trips have opened new doors; a new perspective widens possibilities. You can literally seduce others into a wildly speculative venture based on a proven system. Be innovative.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
At the end of 2009, you will see that your long-cherished value system has blown up; leaving in its place a new concept of personal wealth and community value. People, places, and things that make up your to-do list are gradually being phased out. Goals for these next years are obsolete. What do you really want? Ponder.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
In the coming resurgence of common sense, you will be required to take a leadership role (leadership, not responsibility). Vendors and subcontractors, personal assistants, and CFOs are slated to join Team Goat. It will be your responsibility to choose the best for each job and trust in your own wisdom. Relax; you’ll do fine.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The Hindu goddess Shiva represents all the forms of death that must precede rebirth. It is a spiritual gift to lovingly welcome the death cycle, to celebrate the clean space for the new. Our basic human reaction is fear; but the futuristic path of your consciousness has all the information to lead you to power. Meditate.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
For a long time, you have been the biggest of the little kids — at the top of your game with lots of baby-sitting chores. Take a deep breath and step into the littlest of the big kids’ shoes. More growth right now would just add fat. Drop the ballast of old support systems and fly into the future. Master teachers await; receive.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
The abundance of situations that clog your calendar must be whittled down to a manageable group. Jupiter Square tends to excess, and there is too much going on! If you consciously separate the possibilities from the realities, you will see this as a time to consider growth and focus on where to take on responsibility. Breathe.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
2009 can be your comeback year, with more opportunities than you can imagine. You are mired in the chaos of the past few years, surrounded by stuff that does not comfort you but weighs you down. There’s no view of the forest for the trees of personal baggage.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Critical domestic issues call for choices. Does the home front need reorganization, a more purposeful arrangement? Does it need to be blown up and rebuilt? Also consider reactive habit patterns that you formed in youth. Do they serve you now? Emotional catharsis looms. Be your own mom. Heal.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
As sense becomes more common, you will advance toward your ideals. Consider yourself the Cosmic Heloise, and realize your many little systems to make life easier are the gold standard now. Your adherence to proper order can create a paradigm shift to a streamlined future. Spiritual blessings are priceless. Be glad.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Have you accepted fiscal parity as your lord and savior? Are you willing to be honest about what makes you happy? If so, you will be planning a garage sale of all of your old life, as you realize the new is near. What will it do for you if you have material prosperity but spiritual poverty? You are not your stuff. Isn’t that great?
