TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your past few weeks have put an epitomizing cap on an incredibly expansive past several months, Taurus, during which time you have (hopefully) come to see yourself as more than your previously limited vision had allowed. Jupiter's been warming up your sign since last June, providing a more comfortable environment for unsticking yourself from stale patterns that have built up over time… though, naturally, the responsibility has been yours to choose to try something else. Then, much more recently, a blend of (1) even more good favor from the planets, courtesy of Venus, and (2) some glaring recurrence of an undesired symptom, direct from said 'stale patterns', has spread a culminating icing on your cake. And if you have indeed decided, yes, you are ready to transcend to the next-highest level of your capacity for excellence, this has been a powerful pivot-point. Now, in the chapter just barely beginning to unfold, you are due to take all those tiny, practical, just-do-it steps required to accustom yourself to these improved patterns… to take this self-transformation from 'conceptual' to 'tangible'. Remember, though: This is some all-new shit, and you are far from having mastered it. Allow yourself to experiment, stumble, rethink, and explore. Just don't retreat or regress.
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): That your understanding of the labyrinthine involvements in which you find yourself, Scorpio, does not neatly divide 'good' from 'bad' or 'black' from 'white' along pre-perforated lines, this is the sort of complexity that'd drive many a simpleton to text 'FML' (or, to us old-timers, 'fuck my life') to their pals… though you are a fat-cat glutton for the stuff. Without mixed messages or conflicted feelings generating their pin-prickly charge, you would be flat-out bored with what's going on (which is why you sometimes look at those who are living 'the simple life' and wonder just how they find stimulation from such an apparently shallow existence, though appearances can be deceiving). Lucky for you, then, you're being presented with an early introduction to your latest choose-your-own-adventure story, an open-ended experience with no 'right' or 'wrong' directions to turn (though each has its own subsequent series of complicating confrontations and exhilarating episodes). And all you have to do to stay with whatever meaty excitements will keep your wild world spinning is to keep on turning the pages—with no erroneous expectation of being able to set the book down for more than a moment or two over the coming months. Embrace the either-or, yes-and, it-all-depends-on, we'll-just-have-to-wait-and-see highs and lows. I already feel you smiling.
