Horoscopes for October 31st – November 6th, 2018
March 21 – April 20
If the straw just broke the camel’s back, it wouldn’t surprise me. We never know what will lead us to see when enough is enough. Viewing the expanse of possibilities that are about to fill the void that recent decisions have created, if you wonder how it will all pan out, try looking at it this way: you managed to keep body and soul together through unsteady and maybe even unbearable times. What makes you think following your heart will lead you down the road to ruin? Now that you’re free and clear the space is open for what you’ve always wanted to unfold.
April 21 – May 20
Deciding how long to give people, places, and things has you biding your time. Issues in your relationships are karmic in nature and not subject to the standard prescriptions for what it will take to make things work. Your childhood issues are playing a big part in everything that you are going through right now. As much as you think you’ve already handled ‘all that stuff’, trust me, it takes a lifetime to strip off the layers of that onion. Give things time. Soon enough you will find another answer, or another way to approach things that can only be changed from within.
May 21 – June 20
I see you playing 4-D Chess with people and things that seem to be Hell bent on getting your goat. If it isn’t one thing, it’ll be another, and this week? Forget about it – Murphy’s Law is bound to rule. Your strong suit lies in your ability to run circles around things. Smarter than most, you are one step ahead of all of it, and unencumbered by the stuff that brings lesser beings down. I have no instructions for you. It looks to me like you know what’s best. And whatever you’ve got tucked up your sleeve will come in handy by the time All Saint’s Day rolls around.
June 21 – July 20
Everything is on the line. Living with the idea that a whole new start is right in your face, it’s hard to figure out where to go from here. One thing is for sure; you can’t go back from whence you came. What’s also true is whatever’s next has yet to come out from behind the curtain. With nothing to go on, the thought that ‘when one door closes, another one opens’ is your only refuge. That being said, all of this has come to pass because you have bigger fish to fry. The purpose for which you were created is about to unfold in the form of opportunities, to travel, study, or teach.
July 21 – August 20
The next phase of your story needs to involve rearranging the way you approach it. For some of you, the only solution is a move. I say this because you’re living on a frequency band that keeps the SOS coming up over and over again. For others there is a need to review your coping mechanisms, and be aware of the tendency to use your spiritual principles to buttress the wall of denial that keeps you stranded behind what you refuse to see about yourself. Either way, it’s time to grow up, take off your mask, and get real about who you really want to be when you grow up.
August 21 – September 20
It’s time for a huge overhaul. If you thought you could get by, by rearranging the furniture, and praying that your higher self would miss the fact that nothing has changed, guess again. When life gets like this it’s hard to know which way to turn. In some cases the need to drop everything and walk off the set is the only solution. For others it comes down to modifying your approach. Far be it from me to tell you what’s right, but, it’s safe to say that all of the angels in heaven would rejoice if you released your fears and trusted the fact that you were made for more than this.
September 21 – October 20
Well, maybe you bit off more than you can chew, but here you are, making the best of what turned out to be harder than you thought. In the midst of things like this we have to keep on keeping on, for the sake of others, or because sometimes there’s no turning back. Your inner being is wondering about more than a few things. How will it all play out in the end? You will get through this, and learn a great deal about the gap between who you think you are, and having to be the one who has to live up to standards that don’t leave enough room for you to breathe.
October 21 – November 20
It’s a good thing your rose-colored glasses are on. In this situation the benefits of seeing only what is of the light will stand you in good stead; for a while at least. Sooner or later all of us have to wake up to the harsher realities. Hoping for the best and preparing for the worst is the point of reference that you need to get to in order to be 100% here for this. Others are doing everything in their power to make your dreams come true, or live up to your expectations. Over the next six months, it would be great if you could come down to earth and get real about what’s really going on here.
November 21 – December 20
It will be at least two months before you are in the clear. Intense aspects from Toro and Psyche are relegating clarity to the back burner. Those of you who are just beginning to see the fog lift need to keep an eye on things just long enough to avoid jumping to conclusions. While it’s true that after a long period of testing, the lesson is just about over, the fat lady has yet to sing. Hold steady and remain centered. Once the Solstice rolls around, some of the opportunities that are materializing now will have room to manifest fully. Until then, be patient and keep on trucking.
December 21 – January 20
Holding your horses wouldn’t be a bad idea. As much as you needed everything to happen yesterday, your mantra should be, “Not My Will but Thine.” After making enough headway to produce a change or two, give yourself a couple of weeks to see what it will take to make the most of this. How you handle things when Murphy’s Law takes you out of your comfort zone is where you run into problems. You’re so used to being totally in control, chaos is your nemesis. At times like this it’s always best to remain in the moment and operate from a purely shamanic perspective.
January 21 – February 20
With so much on your plate there’s no sense telling you to take it easy. For the next six weeks, keeping the pedal to the metal is where it’s at. You’ve been here before. At times like this your inner child gets relegated to the corner, your personal life shrivels up, and it all comes down to doing whatever it takes to get the job done. Inside these limits, shafts of light, and your endless ability to see what lies at the end of the tunnel will keep you going. Don’t waste your valuable time with things that subtract from your purpose; this includes avoiding people who suck you dry.
February 21 – March 20
Getting out from under some of the stuff that’s been weighing you down has given you a chance to look at who you really want to be when you grow up. Things will continue to pull you back to the past. If you’re smart you’ll do your best to avoid all of that and turn the channel to the part of you that is ready to break the rules and refuses to be held back by anyone, or anything, any longer. When we hit a defining moment it doesn’t work to pussy-foot around. Watch and see. For the next few weeks the way things go will depend entirely on how well you are able to rock the boat.
