Aries (March 20-April 19) — You may not see it now, but all the good work you have been doing for the last two years or so is ready to harvest. Just as is the case with a tangible agricultural situation, however, your labors are not quite over. If you imagine yourself as a farmer who has finally seen months of planting and cultivating pay off with a crop that is now ready to bring in, you will have envisioned something of your present condition in a nutshell. One more stretch of effort over the next six or seven months is all it will take. Conduct yourself with diligence and care over that period. Whatever you have been striving for will accrue in sufficient quantity to sustain you through a new cycle of renewal and achievement over the two years or so yet to come. – By Len Wallick.

Taurus (April 19-May 20) — Yours is a situation where it will be appropriate to play what some people call a ‘long game’. What you do over the next two months will matter for this year. How you do it will determine the quality of your future years hence. If you are currently at a loss for what to do or how to do it, simply feel for the pressure. Once you have identified where in your life pressure is coming from, focus on how to live without it. While in action to breathe easier for the rest of this year, keep years past in the back of your mind. Specifically, give thought to how things came to be as they are for you now. If you can put your finger on the source(s) of any current discomfort, you can tailor your current efforts to both attain relief for the short term and remain relieved for a long time to come. – By Len Wallick.

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — An old adage known as “Occam’s Razor” goes something like this: the simplest solution (or answer) is probably the correct one. Give some thought to trying that particular proverb on for size. To be sure, complex scenarios frequently require a similarly sophisticated approach. The real question for you in the coming weeks is whether you are making any given situation more complicated than it needs to be. Find your answer in three steps. First, get clear on what you want out of your current circumstances. Then, come right out and ask anybody else with a stake in the same situation what outcome they would like to see. Finally, look for common ground and a way to attain it. If you and everybody else involved can share an aspiration and realize it together, any remaining differences will look a lot smaller. — By Len Wallick.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Be aware of blessings. Better yet, endeavor to see blessings where you have previously perceived something else. Begin with what you have. Everybody has something. Then, take stock of your own circumstance. Imagine doing without one part of your body at a time, or one tangible possession at a time. For each case of your imagined lack, there are almost certainly some people in the world (perhaps even a great number) actually living without. Extend the visualization to include intangibles (such as reputation). Finally, turn the situation around to contemplate what you don’t have. To cite just one example, all the expensive jewelry you don’t own cannot possibly be stolen from you. Long before you complete your imaginary inventory, you will probably get the point. Blessings are all that matter and all you need desire. — By Len Wallick. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — If you have been feeling misunderstood or under-appreciated as of late, worry not. In all probability, the way others see you (or your perception of how others see you) is on the verge of changing for the better. More to the point, you can hasten a real or perceived improvement of your sense of value among others by following three guidelines. First, when others rush to judge you harshly, remember that you don’t need to take all of that on, or in. Chances are you’ve learned ‘when to say when’ when it comes to being self-critical, and quite possibly you’ve learned that the hard way. Next, accept responsibility for your actions only. Allow others the opportunity to be accountable for what they do. Finally, before speaking, always put yourself in the position of those about to hear. — By Len Wallick.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — One of the best things you can do for yourself at present is to make some long-term plans for just yourself. Even if there are others you will eventually be obliged to take into account, it’s about time you temporarily put at least some of your inclination towards service aside. It’s not selfish to think of your own desires upon occasion, and doing so now will help you stay in touch with all those special needs you have that only you can be expected to meet. Even if some of your long-range plans do not pan out eventually, the simple practice of making them will force you to develop either new proficiencies, or skills you might have neglected. Your gift for being in the moment is an admirable trait that has served you well. Even the best talents, however, are only most useful and productive in their proper time and place. – By Len Wallick.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Trust yourself if you soon begin to feel as though you can remember the future. Einstein taught us that time and space are equivalent. In addition, Uncle Albert went on to posit what scientific observations of eclipses later proved: that space is in fact curved by gravity. It therefore stands to reason that time has a curvature as well, and that events of gravity (such as the pair of eclipses which concluded only two weeks ago) can bring just such a bending about. No doubt you have some gravity of your own. After all, your own observations have almost certainly proven your power to attract — whether intentionally or otherwise. Even if the same experiences have caused you to discount intuition, consider that power now. If you see something coming, allow for the possibility that you are seeing correctly. — By Len Wallick.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Good times are a matter of definition. Most often, the definer is you. Even if events over the past year or so have left you feeling that some treasured good times are now past, don’t be so quick to believe it. If you find yourself missing something (and even grieving its absence) do yourself a favor: allow for the possibility that you will soon realize something else entirely. The fixed nature of Scorpio, combined with its elemental component of water, can often result in your not knowing just how lucky you are. This does not mean any sense of loss is without validity. Your feelings should never be discounted or marginalized by anybody, least of all you. What this does mean is that you do not need to get stuck. If you will simply keep moving through all of your emotions as they arise, without denying them or camping out in them, the result will be feeling better overall. — By Len Wallick.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — Keep a lookout for two things this month, and they may very well lead to some of the best years of your life. First, keep an eye out for a personal connection where none existed before. The way things are moving in the sky right now, the person (or people) you were never previously inclined to trust could well become your best friend (or friends) ever. Maybe it will be because they have changed. Perhaps it’s the changes you have been through. Probably, it will be a combination of the two — along with recognizing yourself in each other, which makes you feel both safe and comfortable with those you had kept at arm’s length. Speaking of safety and comfort, the second thing to be alert for is how a new or previously strange place could suddenly become the home you always wanted. — By Len Wallick.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — Three quotes to guide you are all you need for the work you have been doing on yourself to show some permanent results. The first saying is most often attributed to Jesus: “Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.” The second aphorism is something Gandhi usually gets credit for: “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Finally, there is a pithy and humble observation once apparently uttered by Abraham Lincoln: “I don’t like that man — I shall have to get to know him better.” The extent to which any of those three quotations seems corny to you will be the measure of what work you still have to do. On the other hand, any aspiration you feel to emulate the three people here quoted will be an indication of how far you have come towards having your own words similarly cited by others in the not too distant future. – By Len Wallick.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You might well very well be identifying with the mythological Heracles (or Hercules, as he was later called) right now. Your labors as of late will not be wasted if you can also bring yourself to be aware of that ancient and erstwhile hero’s most prominent flaws. Heracles was, first of all, often prone to shoot first and ask questions later. If you can but bring yourself to simply ask questions of others first, it’s very possible that their answers will make reactive extremes on your part unnecessary. Another thing Heracles was known for was his large appetite. Here again, making some inquiries (this time of yourself) could serve to head off some possibly unfortunate consequences. Before you eat, drink or otherwise indulge to heroic extents, simply ask yourself if you really need to. – By Len Wallick. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — One flaw of human beings is a conceit of being superior to other beings. Interestingly, for you at this time it’s probably the other way around. Odds are that you are much too humble. Given how others can see your potential, it’s not surprising that all but a few very good and unselfish friends would encourage you to underrate yourself. That’s how, at this vital juncture of your life, you would do well to risk some conceit. Say “can do” even if you suspect you can’t, and your efforts to live up to that assertion will very seldom (if ever) result in hubris. Aim just a little higher, and you might be surprised how often (if not always) you exceed your goal. There is more power in your potion than you are likely to suspect, and you will almost certainly find that out by simply adding some motion. – By Len Wallick.
