Horoscopes for May 15-21, 2019
Copyright – Cal Garrison: 2019: ©
ARIES: March 21 – April 20
You are so fed up with people. As much as I totally get it, the mark of a spiritually evolved person lies in their ability to tolerate the weaknesses of others. Those close to you have required more tolerance than usual. Sure, it would be “legal” to let them have it, but showing others their blind spots is an exercise in futility. Accept the fact that it has taken them forever to get this messed up, and mind your own business. Stuff like this is always a lesson in “How not to be” and there to teach us about having compassion for those who got lost on the path to self-awareness.
TAURUS: April 21 – May 20
There’s only so much a person can take, and only so much you can do before things start begging you to take the bull by the horns. Whatever has gotten to be too much has a lot to do with the way things go when people get lost. Love does not mean “putting up with anything.” Once you figure out exactly what needs to happen it won’t be long before you realize that you aren’t Mother Theresa, and it isn’t your job to save the day. At moments like this the soul has to break free, detach, and dissolve itself. If you can figure that one out, you will be able to get around anything.
GEMINI: May 21 – June 20
It’s never just one thing; there are always at least three issues dancing around the totem pole. Between the everyday-ness of things, and the voice in your head that has had enough of this, many of you are ready to snap. Even if you’ve gotten Zen enough to just chop wood and carry water, you’re still feeling a little ho-hum. When it’s time to change, no amount of “Well I really need to stay here and hold space for whoever I think I am” will cut it. As much as you think that safety lies in sticking to the plan, you are more than ready to light a fire under yourself and move on.
CANCER: June 21 – July 20
You’ve been out of the box long enough to know that you can’t go back. If it’s hard to know what to do next, or where to take it from here, there isn’t any road map for the place you’re about to go to. For better or worse, the course you steer will open the way to exactly what you need in this moment. You know better than anyone that what we need doesn’t always look like what we want, but you’re smart enough to take the good with the bad and make the most of every lesson. God knows how things will unravel. They will turn out for the best if you do this one by heart.
LEO: July 21 – August 20
Drumming your fingers on the table won’t get this to happen any sooner. It’s hilarious the way you get when it’s your turn to wait. You may want this more than anything, but there is more to it than meets the eye. This is an old story. Stop wondering what it will take for life to bow to your Will, or others to make a move, and pay attention to the way you sabotage those possibilities. If you give what’s going on right now a little more time, it’ll show you that your goals have to be centered in something authentic before your dreams bear any resemblance to what’s in your heart.
VIRGO: August 21 – September 20
You need to get your bearings before you can be clear enough to make your next move. The focus is on work, but there are other themes running parallel to the idea that your responsibilities are your saving grace right now. As for the rest of it, “Oi-Yoi-Yoi”! Between the same old story and the pressures that the past has left in its wake, you keep you mulling over your choices and wondering why life is this intense. The thoughts that keep you awake relate to: “Am I nuts or is it true that I have every right to be this upset about things?” Stay true to yourself. It’s all you can do.
LIBRA: September 21 – October 20
The best laid plans have come to a place where you are ready to give it up and change the channel. The idea that you don’t have enough of what it takes to keep this going comes from knowing that you wound up in this situation because somebody else wanted it. Lots of “stuff” is stirring up to obscure the path. At times like this the only thing you can trust is the inner voice, the one that knows who you’re kidding. What you hear from that neck of the woods is going to tell you things that you might not want to hear. Weighing your options is where it’s at right now.
SCORPIO: October 21 – November 20
Nobody can tell you what to do. At this point, even if they wish they could there’s no way you can honor anyone’s authority but your own. There are a lot of reasons for this but none of them are going to hold up if you are unwilling to look at what never fails to happen every time you get this righteous. Whatever you’re trying to defend or protect would be better served if you would loosen up, or soften up just enough to see that you don’t know everything. Others are there for you. If you can open up to the thought that they are right about a few things, it will serve you both.
SAGITTARIUS: November 21 – December 20
You didn’t come here to lead a simple or trivial life. The idea that you need to toe the line, or that someone like you ought to be (fill in the blanks) by now, competes with the thought that things don’t seem to be pointing in that direction. Issues that have led you to believe that it’s best to stick to some sort of plan no longer apply. If there’s no map to this territory it’s because you’re learning how to feel your way in the dark. No one’s advice is big or objective enough to guide you through an experience that requires only faith and a deeper connection to your higher self.
CAPRICORN: December 21 – January 20
Nobody can help you figure out how to keep this balanced. Whatever lies up on the road ahead, you’re the one who is in charge of that issue. Don’t feel too overwhelmed; you of all people have been through enough to handle pretty much anything. When it comes to finding yourself in the midst of the needs and concerns of others there is nothing you can do but keep the focus on your own truth. You may be called to go a little further afield with people, places, and things than you’ve been in a long time. Strap yourself in, keep the faith, and let your higher self teach you your lessons.
AQUARIUS: January 21 – February 20
You wish you had a crystal ball. Praying and hoping for the best, you realize that all of it is out of your hands. Otherwise known as an inside job, no amount of maneuvering will work. Huge transformations are about to be wrenched from this situation and all you can do is drop the reins and let it play out. Underneath it all, what prevails in the end will show you what’s real. If you wonder whether these changes will impact your future and your sense of security, the answer is, “Of course they will.” Buckle up, hang on, and trust your Higher Self to see you through.
PISCES: February 21 – March 20
You aren’t sure that you can do this because life has never taken you this far. Up until this moment it didn’t matter how things went. All of a sudden the whole show depends on whether or not you’re ready to step into a bigger pair of shoes. Others may seem like they aren’t up for going wherever you want to go; that may or may not be true, so don’t presume, and don’t make things more complicated by assuming that they don’t need this as much as you do. At the moment, the need to be strong, and the ability to stay tuned to what’s right for you, are what’s on top of the stack.
