Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)
What is troubling you? It would help if your fears were not so detailed, and it would help more if they did not become an instant point of contention. The real fear you’re struggling with is that of isolation. It’s as though you feel removed from yourself as well as from the world, though there may be no physical reason in your environment for this. Your solar chart strongly suggests that you are starting to feel angry about being isolated. The problem is that it’s not entirely true. There are key facets of your life where you are visible, participating in the world and the focus of true admiration. This may conflict directly with your sense of your own existence; you may not even be able to see the evidence that you are having an impact. Please recognize that your work is not only having an impact, but you are reaching people on the emotional level as well. You are finally involved with something that expresses your true values, your commitment to caring for the world, and which meets the most important criteria of all, contacts people personally. Therefore, you can feel good about responding to the call for leadership. If you’re feeling isolated, let that stand as a reminder of the condition of 99 percent of the population, and is a key part of why you must do the work you are being called up on to do.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

There are many ways to find your niche in life, and this would seem to be your preoccupation at the moment. The service role you’re seeking in your community appears to be some combination of healer and information specialist. This is not particularly easy, given that most people, despite what they may claim, don’t actually want what helps them; they want what entertains them. Most don’t want what they need, they want what they want. It is not up to you to personally turn the tide of Western civilization, though for the next few weeks you may feel that it is. Start on a scale you understand, which is definitely smaller than the scale you want to be working on. Rather than alienating people with your message, I suggest you seek allies in your community who are on the same basic wavelength as you are, and then let your community function be about leadership and coordination. As someone who possesses both passion and intelligence, you’re the person with the best résumé for the job. If you look at your long-term vision, in part based on your extensive experience and in part based on your stated goals, you’ll see that this kind of involvement fits your agenda perfectly.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Pluto has made a brief return to your sign, the last for more than two centuries. A long era of your life is drawing to a close. Indeed, an important era in the history of our community and our culture is about to turn the page. The brief interval between now and just before your birthday when Pluto is in Sagittarius is a crucial phase of summing up the many visions you have had for your life since the mid-1990s, and aligning the most meaningful ones with your true intentions. We have all grown a little too large in this era. This time in both personal and cultural history has been one characterized by the drive to put quantity over quality; to grab anything we can get, and to conquer the world rather than to see the world in a grain of sand. In this time, you have taken on a role of ideological leadership. There are aspects of this that have worked brilliantly, and others that seem to have fallen flat. You now have a brief interval of time to review your accomplishments, unfinished business, and apparent failures. Five months at the end of an approximately 14-year phase is not long—it is so short most people will not even notice that the time has passed. Pluto is not one who appreciates being gainsaid. Note this moment carefully.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You cannot force yourself to believe something, no matter how much you may want to. Facts do not add up to faith, just as all the Saints do not add up to God. What you really need to do is look at the world around you with your eyes open, and take in the direct evidence of what is so. By that I mean look at the world immediately around you, close-by and right now, and you will have all the verification you need for a question that is grating at you; you will have all the justification for sincere belief, and in the end, all the supporting data to make the point to others who may need evidence. Anyway, the truth of one particular matter of right and wrong will soon be obvious, and the revelation is likely to compel you to change how you think. It may help to remind you that what is true needs to be valid more than in principle. Reality stands on its own merit and does not need a theory to back it up. Therefore, if you find yourself theorizing, speculating, or projecting far into the future, stop and check yourself. Is there something you’re avoiding? Is there someone close to you whose feelings you need to admit and acknowledge, in their entirety? You may want to phrase the question that way, and make sure you open your heart and your mind when the time comes to listen.
