Here’s your yearly forecast. If you know your ascendant (rising) sign, read that first, then your sun sign. Alignments this year promise to shatter the status quo in many areas. Organized mass rebellion against the corporate state will begin on the Internet and gain strength at year’s end. Willingness to brave hell for heaven will create spectacular new role models. In a time of new beginnings, past history and accoutrements dissolve. Travel light for the best results. For a personal reading, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
The next 12 months will have you feeling the richest and the poorest you have ever been. These highs and lows are the result of repeated assaults on your value system. Mike Todd had a lavish party and gifted Liz Taylor with a huge rock as his furniture was being repossessed. When asked about it, he replied, “I may be broke, but I am never poor.” Meditate on this financial metaphysics for a breakthrough. Work hard.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Outward appearances notwithstanding (you look fabulous, dahling), inner nabobs natter over a sense of impoverishment. Administrate your life with an emphasis on cutbacks. If you do not prune now, overgrowth will choke the life out of the crop in mere months. Live simple, and that’s not easy. Settle for a balanced checkbook and an orderly schedule. Economize graciously; vital future alliances sit in judgment. Shine in the shade.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You who treasure solitude are full tilt socially. Heavy correspondence is required to build a consensus for your ventures, and you would do well to be more available to those who approach. When you start acting like an island, you immediately forfeit growth and expansion. One from a parallel universe will serve you exquisitely, to the level of tolerance and understanding that you convey. Be amused and not annoyed.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
What if you let go of those restricting support systems that you have lugged around for the past couple of years? Their purpose was to ground you. Are you centered? Then go on your wild and wonderful tangent, knowing you have put in the drudgery. With an “Aha!” moment, you will resume your native lightness and soar. Exercise your philosophical bent with a multicultural group and you grow intellectually.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
If the structure is firm, begin your leadership. More than ever before, you will be judged on your ability to contain emotional reactions and bring a sense of balance to all endeavors. You are the ambassador and the image of all that you represent. Public and private encounters must be controlled by your solid conveyance of balance. Take no sides in meetings; take everything under consideration.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This year is your pit stop in the grand prix of life, especially in terms of your spiritual strengths. How savvy are you in spirit? How easily do you let go? How do you define your addictions and your awareness of them? Do you take time to visualize your future? Do you take notes from your advisors, who see an easier way? Flexibility is the secret weapon. Be willing to explore a new path, and loosen old allegiances. Open your mind to receive. Be still.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
What was bedrock turns to sand, and you realize foundations were illusions. As your groups come together to memorialize a deceased person, place, or thing, new life spawns from interactions that could never have happened had there not been the ending. Bless cold ashes, because nature abhors a vacuum, and the new bird flies straight to the sun.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Alpha rams are mad as hell, and inner warriors look for a passing vehicle. You who represent the new, the untried, are blessed (albeit the hard way) with opportunity to walk away from the unsatisfactory. Since fear is anathema, what are you waiting for? Banish the fleeting doubt, the negative reaction, and trust yourself to do the unexpected. When you surprise yourself, you have a breakthrough. Temper action.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
The legal ramifications of daily life draw you to contemplate use of the law in unique ways. A pricey new assistant, employee, or vendor can be the catalyst to unimagined success if you can manage the relationship as if you are the big cheese. You are. They work for you. This is neither friendship nor partnership, but a working relationship in which your opinion rules. Keep control and you’ll like the outcome.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Some vociferous members of the peanut gallery have been playing to your ego, thus inflating their usefulness out of proportion. True allies lie behind a critical word or constructive criticism. Many intellectuals disdain the concept of discrimination, forgetting that it can be a tool for self-preservation. A liberal bent can confuse discipline with punishment. Discipline yourself to not suffer fools gladly. Imagine how much time you will save.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
This will be a year when concept becomes reality. You are in the trenches, keeping it all in forward motion. A dream can manifest if you are willing to get down and dirty, building a strong foundation. Ward off misunderstandings by playing cards close to the chest; loose lips threaten your ship. Neighborhood and community are incredible support systems, especially when they appreciate your contribution. Short trips will contribute to growth; be ready to go.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
After two or three years of abstention, plans become more attainable, and small indulgences contribute to a stronger resolve and more appealing image. Widen your circle. There is much satisfaction in mingling close to home with a group of like-minded individuals. Restructure your social goals. New connections can provide invaluable networking. Cheer up; royalty will be back in vogue, and you will resume your rightful place.
