ARIES (March 21-April 19): You have run out of patience often over the past few months and once again might find yourself ready to cash in your chips. However, something is different now. It's as if your previously crazy plan has solidified over time and is finally ready to see the light of day. Even if it feels like you're rushing into something new, it could work beyond your wildest dreams if you can slow down the process and keep your long-term goal in mind. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may be more flexible now that you see exciting possibilities for your future beginning to take shape. However, you worry that your dreams could vanish in a flash. You're aware that pushing a delicate process of emotional growth too hard or too fast might upset the equilibrium and damage what has already been created. But you also recognize that inaction is counterproductive. You have come a long way toward manifesting your vision. Acknowledging your progress helps to ameliorate your current fear. Slow and steady wins the race. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You might selfidentify with Dr. Dolittles Pushmi-Pullyu as you receive cautionary admonitions from someone close to you while simultaneously being encouraged by someone else. At first, you're inclined to listen to those saying yes because you truly want to do something new. However, you become more hesitant today as you think about what could go wrong. Ultimately, you will know in your gut if its time to put your plan into effect. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You crave more freedom at work but the nature of your commitments may prevent you from reaching your goal. You're unwilling to sacrifice financial security for the sake of independence. Nevertheless, you're probably seeing the options in terms of all or nothing. The real challenge now is to find ways to express yourself when you're not on the job. Achieving satisfaction means balancing your need for personal fulfillment with meeting your ongoing responsibilities. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Entering a new phase of personal development can be both thrilling and frightening. A sensible strategy to minimize the fear is to reinforce those routines that work while replacing those that dont. But deciding which pieces to leave behind could be overwhelming. However, you might be relieved of this challenge now as unexpected circumstances seem to choose your fate. Fortunately, bringing the most satisfying parts of your life into the future sets you on a path to happiness. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your past seems to catch up with you now, but youre not doomed to repeat it. In fact, your current stroll down Memory Lane may be a perfect walk to take with a close friend or lover in order to free you from patterns that have outlived their usefulness. Don't be trapped by the familiarity of your personal history. It has brought you to the present moment, but you are free to take any road you choose into the future. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Although an unexpected shift in the dynamics of a significant relationship might be upsetting at first, the ground feels more solid once the facts are out in the open. Thankfully, you can breathe a sigh of relief if you discover that your greatest fears were unfounded. Nevertheless, there may have been a grain of truth in your suspicions that, once discussed, can finally be put to rest. Better the devil you know than the devil you don't. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The regular routines of your life offer you emotional security, but they can also stifle your creativity. Shaking up your schedule is exactly what the doctor ordered. You might feel a bit out of sorts because you cant fall back on familiar habits, but your exhilaration is worth the temporary loss of comfort. However, taking a different approach is only the first step. Capture your current enthusiasm by producing something of lasting value. Any project that adds beauty to your surroundings is worth embarking on now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are tired of waiting for the perfect moment to act. In fact, youre ready to throw caution to the wind and go for a cosmic joyride. Although you dont know where a gust might carry you, you arent tied to a particular destination; your goal is to be somewhere else. But your eagerness to fly is not about escaping your current situation; its about improving the overall quality of your life. Your actions may seem impulsive to others, but appearances dont tell the whole story. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your friends might think you are being silly because you're overly cautious now. But you are worried that you dont have all the facts and youre willing to wait until you do before making a major move. Nevertheless, an unforeseen change of circumstances could catalyze your decision-making process today and cause you to forget about your prior concerns. Although you may surprise others and change your mind suddenly when you take a new course of action, your current choices are grounded in practicality. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You're hesitant to commit to a group activity today because it's easier to say no right away than it is to establish boundaries later on. Youre afraid that people will expect more from you than youre willing to give. However, you could be so adamant about the limits of your participation that you overstate your case when turning down an invitation. There's no reason to be so blunt that you offend a friend or potential ally. A bit of diplomacy and kindness goes a long way to building community. PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar 20): Envisioning ways to get ahead at work or inventing schemes to increase your income could actually lead to concrete actions. Theres no pressure to do anything today except to explore all the alternatives for advancement by running through every scenario in your mind. Ironically, its your willingness to let your imagination run free that can generate a radical breakthrough. Youre not going to make progress now through incremental steps.
