Week of May 3, 2006
ARIES (Mar. 20 - Apr. 20) Great week to take a bit of a break and rest a little. You may want to contemplate what it means to truly be in "negotiation." To truly be in a position of negotiating, you need to give up the idea that the outcome is set in stone. A true negotiation means that the outcome needs to be flexible and that compromise is part of the deal.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 21) What do you believe? I know that you are most often all caught up in living your life and taking care of things for yourself and everyone else, yet sometimes we all need to take a break and think a little about what we truly believe. Remember the higher values behind all the things you are doing and you will have an easier time in taking care of the mundane.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 22) I know that you can do just about anything, it is one of the many wonders of being a Gemini. There does come a time when we need to narrow down our choices and get a bit more focused on what it is we really, really want to do. When we give ourselves permission to do "anything," we run the risk of ultimately doing nothing. Know your boundaries and limitations and narrow down your choices.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23) One step at a time. Remember that tortoise and hare story. Slow and steady really does win the race. Don't believe you are behind where you need to be or that it is important that you get in gear and hurry things up in your life. You are right on schedule, and doing things a little bit at a time really will bring you to where you want to be.
LEO (July 23 - Aug. 23) If you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel, it may be because you do need to develop some true faith. If we always know what is going to happen, we wouldn't need faith at all. Even if you can't see how things will turn out, are you courageous enough to trust that things will work out okay? Look within for some inner resources to take a leap of faith and even if you have no guarantees, take a chance and have some faith.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) Take a breath. Really! Take a moment and breathe and now look around you. If you really look, you will see that you have everything you need right here, right now to be truly happy. You are so geared to constantly be scanning your life for what are the problems so that you can fix them that you miss many opportunities to really experience happiness. So take the time right now to see how good your life actually is and allow yourself to be happy!
LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) Make a list. A list of what are the most important things in your life. So often, because of your ability to see clearly another person's needs and desires, you forget your own sense of priorities. So, clear everyone else's stuff out of the way and find the time to get clear on what is really important for you! Make that list, and then keeping it in mind, reevaluate your choices.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 22) Magic does happen. And you know it! You have seen it in your life more than once, of this I have no doubt. Stay connected to what you know you want in your life and then allow the Universe to figure out how to make it happen. You don't need to know how things will happen, you simply need to remember that things can change within any moment.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) How well do you think you know yourself? Have you taken time out recently to check in with yourself to make sure you are aware of who you are NOW? Sometimes we make deals with ourselves and then years later, we are simply in the habit of believing we are a certain way. We forget that we change and that our desires and dreams and needs change as time moves on. So check in with yourself and see if there are any deals you have made with yourself that you can renegotiate.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 - Jan. 20) You do have the ability to get yourself into quite a funk, Capricorn. Your sign is so heavy that you can easily go into the glum and mopey self and withdraw. You, along with Cancer, need to learn that your moods are directly connected to your thoughts. If you have been thinking about everything that there is to be afraid of or worried about, then no wonder you're in a bad mood. Change your mind and you will change your feelings, it is as simple as that.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19) Let's talk about worry. It comes in many different shapes and sizes and expresses itself in a lot of different ways, but one thing that is always true about worry is that it is a complete waste of energy. It does not help us in any way, shape or form and it never changes the outcome of anything. Break the cycle of worry by catching yourself in the midst of it and make a conscious choice to think about something else. Break the chain!
PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) You really must speak up. I know you would rather hide most of the time and you get a little afraid of putting too much of yourself out there, but it is time. Time for you to offer your opinions and insights in any situation in which you find yourself. You may find that people have been waiting for your ideas and that your perspective and view of things hold the key to a solution. So speak up!
NOTE: If you were born at the end or beginning of a sign, read the sign before and after your birthday.
