Humans are complex and cannot be reduced to twelve separate categories. For best results, read this column holistically, as if every sign pertained to some aspect of yourself (as it does).
We feel good now; after all, we enjoy summer. The bottom line is, we are having fun. Summer is all about swimming, playing and enjoying the sunshine. There is so much light and warmth! Even the cool days are warm, compared to winter. So much to appreciate and enjoy. Our eyes are open, and we are watching for beauty and hope in the world. We are able to close our eyes and dream a better life, and it almost feels real.
Still something feels disconnected, inside us, we sense something wrong with the collective picture. We are going through the motions, smiling from behind a screen of habit, agreeing with the consensus, but uncertain. We are scared—we don’t like to notice that, but there it is. Our denial skills are strong now; it seems denial is a useful tactic, when the alternative is not fun. Everything has a season; this too shall pass.
Aries: You feel stuck in your habits, angered by your own fear. You want to close your eyes and drift into the fantasy where you want to live for a while. Touch the soil, Aries, cry if you can.
Taurus: Your mind is busier than you like. It’s harder to simply rest in your senses as you are accustomed. Now is time to open your eyes, notice and think. The truth needs thinking about.
Gemini: Nostalgia consumes you. Oh for the days when reality could be trusted, and things made sense—when relationships were simple and the world was larger and less complicated.
Cancer: You are full to bursting with light and energy. You want to share it with the world but you feel daunted and shy. If others could read your mind! You have so much to share.
Leo: You are happy with your friends and family. You feel you belong, and your heart is full with love for your tribe. You wish you could help others to belong too. It hurts you to see them so lost.
Virgo: You are making up a story of true love. It’s a wonderful take in which everyone gets what they want and happily ever after is a thing. You don’t see why it shouldn’t be true. Believe.
Libra: You see the face of the beloved in the random objects and activities that compose your daily routine. You believe in heaven on earth, despite the hell which breaks your heart.
Scorpio: Dear scorpion, beware the sting of jealousy when you see others dance in the light. You don’t even like their light! Your fun and theirs is different, and you dance in a different light.
Sagittarius: You are the life of the party, but the party is happening someplace the world can’t see. In the eyes of God (as you define it), are you innocent of wrongdoing? Sure you are.
Capricorn: You are reminded of the things you feel bitter about, and whose fault they are. At the same time, you recognize the truth and you revolutionize your own heart. Gently, open.
Aquarius: You are researching ancient tales that remind us all of what matters. The new beginning you are initiating is beginning to take off; soon, the Goddess will drive the revolution.
Pisces: The key is lost, floating in the seas of collective dream, but it will settle to the depths where an intrepid diver may retrieve it. We are all together in this dive; don’t forget to rise.
