Aries (March 20-April 19)
Usually we humans don’t look back. At least here in the Western world, particularly in the United States, we have a disdain of history and we disregard the past. As an Aries, you are born under one of the most forward-thinking signs, but the long Mars retrograde that began in your sign last month is taking you on a deep review of the past: how you felt in the past, what influenced you, and most of all, what has contributed to your sense of unease or vulnerability. You may feel like you don’t want to go some of the places that Mars is taking you. You may be inclined to think that the past is over and therefore you don’t want any part of it. But how we feel about the past is what limits us in the present. Take these opportunities to resolve what has been left unresolved for so long. Be mindful of the depth of your feelings, including your frustration, and, most of all, your desire to express yourself. What is the emotional knot that holds you back? Now is the time to untangle it.
Taurus (April 19-May 20)
With all that you’ve been through this year, I would imagine that you want to get your affairs settled and know what way your life is going. But this is not the time to settle down; it is the time to refine your long-range vision, and to begin actively experimenting with it. It is true that you take a highly structured view of the future, but this is in most ways an artifice based on the past. You cannot really arrange the future; you can only live it. You cannot really organize the present, but you can seek to understand where you are, and what options you have available. But it would be prudent to come up with a new way of thinking of things besides “In three years I will do that, and in five years I will do that.” All the conceptual structures of time that quite literally block your view of the future are about to come tumbling down. You are being called far and wide, but you will never see the possibilities if you are looking from a low place, or if you are hiding from yourself—or the world.
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
Because you are inclined to go through fast changes, you may not always agree with the wisdom of structuring your affairs in life, of setting specific limits and using them as a source of profit. You are more inclined to view structure as something limiting your gains or preventing you from doing what you want. But those days are waning fast. You are entering an extended phase of your life when you must become the architect of your relationships. You need to use what you have learned about people seeming to have so much power over you or impact in your life, and arrange your relationships so that they work with those influences consciously. You cannot use control against control, but you can use awareness as a means of increasing what you know about the places where you meet with others and exchange energy. That energy may be sexual, it may involve money, and it will certainly involve the effects of the choices you have made in the past.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You’ve always placed a high value on relationships, but you are about to discover why that is so. For as much as you want and need love and companionship, the world has a way of making sure you wait for it or take it slowly, and the delays have at times seemed unbearable. Yet you do not need to confuse delays with denial. Even in our world, where time can do so much damage, eventually time becomes our ally and our most significant tool. In physical reality, time is really all we have. Therefore, the only sane or practical way to use time is as a resource. That being said, it is the present and not the future that has an extraordinarily compelling property. Please do not shrink from the moment. If you discover a reason to doubt yourself, consider two reasons that you have to be self-assured. In the coming weeks, people are likely to be taking a lot higher view of you than you usually have of yourself. Make sure you match their vision.
