Horoscopes 4-04 

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Extraordinarily promising events may seem to be failing to work out as planned. Or they may seem to be running their course too soon for your pleasure. Yet a deeper cosmic enterprise is at work; the stars have an agenda for you, and you cannot judge it from the outside. You simply must have faith, and do everything in your power to avoid the battles of words or unnecessary conflicts that only waste your energy. Words do, however, have their use. If you can put your energy into learning how to get along with women, for which words are extremely useful, you will cultivate a life skill that you’ll benefit from for the rest of your days. You may have tried and failed many times; you may have given up. Don’t blame your sisters. Don’t blame yourself. Just get it. Women are worth the effort.

Taurus (April 19-May 20)
Most people will tell you that commitment is a decision, which seems convenient enough. I am not so sure. When it works, commitment seems more honestly to be a form of alchemy, and this happens in its own way and time, and it happens outside the normal realm of choice. We’ve all experienced this, and it doesn’t always make sense at the time, though in retrospect it can seem perfectly logical. What you do possess is the power to consciously observe, and to respond to what you notice at all times. During the next two seasons, you’re going to see what has hurt you in the past, and rid yourself of those aspects of your life. These may not be pleasant confrontations, but they will be highly effective ones.

Gemini (May 20-June 21)
In the click-and-buy-it world, it’s easy to think you should go for what you want and get it. Then there is the reality of six billion humans coexisting in the dimension of free will. How about this for a guiding principle: see whom and what you draw to you, and choose from among your options. Relationships that are not held together by the power of attraction are supported by something much more sinister. But you have yet to discover the real power of your heart and mind to magnetize community and unite the support you need in the world. You have come to live in a universe that’s all too narrow and predictable, and that is about to change in ways that, I assure you, you could have never foreseen.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Career developments proceeding on that annoying start-stop-and-renegotiate basis are actually the most promising, though time will tell. It would seem there’s so much momentum to these developments that nobody can stop them, not even you. You are noticeable, and people have taken notice. You have succeeded in reaching people—more people than you think. And you’ve done the most vital thing anyone can do in their professional life, which is set clear goals and take solid initiative. You have removed a few annoying obstacles to your success as well, and become a star on your own team. Now you get to do what you do second best: persist. And what you do very best: offer your love of the world to the world.

Leo (July 22-August 23)
It may be taking longer than planned to work out long-distance arrangements, but you’re in a fine position to tap into your inventiveness and experience with true determination. If you pay attention, you will notice that everything comes back to communication. But you could also say that, on the most personal level, the past few weeks have been little other than an exercise in developing your creative prowess and cultivating your initiative. Or is it your faith? Given the rather unpredictable nature of the world, meeting your long-term plans and objectives is very much a matter of keeping your heart and soul open to the best possibilities. It may be encouraging to hear that your most promising achievements follow the days on which your worst fears seem the most real. .

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Your intelligence is not failing you; rather, you seem to be the one who is not quite taking notice of the excellent information readily available now. I tell you, economically feasible solutions to all the problems in the world are sitting in file drawers somewhere. And your life is not any different. It would also seem you’ve been here before. The biggest mistake you can make is to compensate for your perceived limitations with some form of aggression, such as the motivation to conquer or win the day by dividing anyone or anything. I recommend precisely the opposite approach: act in ways that hold the world together. Start with yourself. You need a unified set of objectives, ones that take into account the considerable inner divisions you may currently feel. From there, the way to peace and harmony will be obvious.

  • Vision Quest: Into the Mysteries of 2016

    People are driven by religious belief far more than they recognize. Religion has done a fine job of taking over all ideas about creation of life, birth and death. It is an unconscious relationship with death in particular that drives people to cling to their beliefs. But then along the way, sex has been corrupted and nearly everyone is convinced that there’s something wrong with it.

    Our planet began its passage between Mars and the Sun recently, which astrologers call Mars retrograde. That started April 17 and ends June 29. Mars is rarely retrograde, so this qualifies as a special event.
