CHOICES by Vikki Anderson
Making choices and decisions are what our
time upon this Earth is all about.
What school or profession we nurture.
To get married or not.
To have or not have children…
Our choices in life are what
our time on this Earth will reveal
to you in your next life:
Were we wise?
Did we have good judgment?
Did we bring happiness and love to others?
Were we caring enough to forego
our own needs for that of a loved one
Choices make us who we are today…
Who we were several hundred years ago
and what we will become centuries from now.
Choose your choices well
For you will live with them
For all eternity…for better or worse.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18
Many decisions have to be made about your career and if you want to remain in the same company where you now work. There may be budget issues, but once you figure out your expenses, you’ll see you can handle your bills just fine. You seem to know your job inside and out; however, it would be especially good for you to learn new things. Arians may also feel as if they need a new hairdo, haircut, change of wardrobe and makeup. Looking for a makeover or updated style may be just what the doctor ordered. Any changes that you do make are going to be positive and bring you a lot of self-confidence and keep you from getting depressed or down in the dumps. Enjoy spring and the great weather; notice all the wonderful flowers blooming around you.
TAURUS – April 18 – May 19
It seems that there are many karmic lessons to be learned within friendships and associations. Join a few clubs or groups that have a common interest, volunteer at a local animal shelter or any other type of group that you have felt an attachment to, and most importantly, make clear boundaries. Your good nature makes you an easy target for so many people who are the takers in this world and it depends on which mood you are in to see whether or not you will stand up for yourself. Your compassion and empathy make you an easy target for those who want your advice, time, opinions, to borrow money, etc. Don’t be afraid to say no or in your case, just say, “I would like to (whatever), but…” and come up with a reason of the day. You are on way out. You’re very busy and will call when you aren’t so busy; you don’t feel well.
GEMINI – May 20 – June 20
You need to reexamine what you really want out of life and get back to your roots. Are you practicing voluntary simplicity? That means you are getting rid of everything you don’t like, want or need in this stage of your life so that you have more time to accomplish the important things that you have always wanted to do. Take that trip that you have been saving for or buy a new car if yours is on its way out. Every time you make a major change in your life, your life changes just as dramatically. Take a class you’ve been procrastinating on or go to the local library and attend every lecture and program they present. You are a little sponge for education and information now, so avail yourself to many of the free programs in your neighborhood or those in surrounding communities. Spend more time with friends while learning how to crochet or knit or draw. Learn from your friends and they in turn will ask you to teach them something you know how to do. Be sure to pay attention to your health. If you need a checkup or haven’t gone in a long while, this is the time to catch up on your doctor visits.
CANCER – June 21 – July 21
There is much good luck around you and will help you deal with any unfinished business with the best results possible. Concentrate on what you want so that things fall into place easier. Also, at this time, be very careful about what you eat and drink. You feel as if everything you eat is going to your hips or elsewhere and it may be true. There can be drastic change and Cancerians are not that good with change, so be prepared for some areas of life will be different than before. You will have total control over your life if you are not too emotional and overly sensitive. Not everything is about you although it feels that way sometimes. On a happier note, work seems to be going in a good direction or you have decided to change your job and find something that makes you smile while you learn something new. Be patient with others now since there tends to be some annoyance if people take things too literally or if they do not do what they said they would.
LEO – July 22 – August 22
Stop worrying about your finances and concentrate on other more important issues. Dealing with friends may be an interesting turn of events. Be considerate of what others have to say as they may be very sensitive now and will take everything as a personal attack. Home life looks encouraging as there is much activity in the home and with your family that everything seems to be running smoothly. Activity and communication are the keys for everyone to get along nicely. Suggest games, chores, or family time to your loved ones so that you can all spend more time together. Children especially want to be heard. Paying close attention to your children now will help them feel needed and important. Work seems to be going in a good direction although there may be lots of changes. Change seems good at this time, so just go with the flow to see where life takes you.
VIRGO – August 23 – September 21
Be the mediator between those who are not getting along and don’t take sides. You will probably regret that a little later down the road. This is a great time to renew certain areas of your life or get things moving in another direction. There is so much you want to do, but haven’t gotten around to making your dreams happen. Prioritize your time and then, organize what you need to make your project or dream come true. There may be some conflict over education or philosophies of life and perhaps travel. If you want to take a long- distance trip, there may be someone or something that keeps you from traveling. If you stand up for yourself, you can go on whichever trip you wish. Even though people may be intimidated by you or you by them, just concentrate on the goal and move forward.
LIBRA – September 22 – October 22
To minimize the change, start redecorating or painting for the new season to get that uplifting and positive energy into your home. Think about your financial situation and then decide how far you would like to go with your home projects. Health issues may come to light. If something was unclear about a condition or symptom, it seems that now you will understand what has been going on. Also, attracting romantic partners is interesting and adventurous. Be certain which type of person you would like to meet since it seems as if the universe is sending you many different types and letting you choose which one you feel is best for you. Choose wisely. You may feel somewhat stuck by some of the decisions you have to make and yet, once you make them, you feel wonderful.
SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21
Then there are those who want to see what else is out there. The third is looking to mend fences and get back to those happy times you used to have. It may feel as if you are living under a cloud lately, but things will pick up soon. Make informed decisions and be sure you are making important decisions with your common sense and not your emotions. If you use emotions, those decisions will be wrong. You may be overly emotional, sensitive and upset for no reason now or at the very least, a very minute reason. It’s a time where you have to figure out what to do with your finances for the future and how to balance your partner’s and your money so that you could live comfortably for many years to come. It’s a time where you should buy what you need and not what you want, so that you have cash in reserve. This may be a good time to get away or at the very least make travel plans for your vacation. Choose somewhere that is nature oriented and very quiet.
SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20
You try to say that everything is okay, but you are not the same person you were a year ago. More things bother you and those around you seem to notice. What a great time to start a new healthy eating habit as well as some new exercise routines. Walking around the neighborhood with your dog or friendly neighbor will help your blood pressure return to normal and will make you calmer and more grounded. Try not to over think things too much since you really aren’t relaxing by trying to figure out the same things over and over again in your head. Spirituality, religion or metaphysics are all possibilities of areas that can help you feel like part of the human race. You are connected, but sometimes you don’t feel as if that is true. Friendships need to be nourished and a good way to do that is to spend some time with your closest friends and visit family more often. They miss you and would like to connect with you. Be open to going out to the movies, to dinner or anywhere your friends would like to go. Have fun.
CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18
Talking to those who are making you concerned or sad will help you uncover what he or she was hiding from you. This is a time for dramatic changes, for the rug to be pulled out from a few of you and for you to get your life in order. Start following what you want to be doing rather than what others expect you to follow. This is your time to make the life you’ve always wanted for yourself. It may seem like a manic/depressive type of month since you seem to be happy and then for no reason, you turn around and are sad or miserable. You are not quite sure why, but it will be like this roller coaster for a short while until you get a handle on what’s happening around you. It’s not you. Thinking with a clear head and as much logic and intelligence that you can muster, you will understand that all things have to change and some people have to be left behind if they are not supposed to follow you into the future.
AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17
Even though you are not destitute, you are being very cautious with your money as you want it to last a very long time. Remember to buy what you need. You are doing well at work and may even get a raise or promotion soon. Someone is noticing your abilities at work and will recommend you for these changes. You are doing too much work for the salary you are receiving and are always exhausted from all the responsibility and long days. In your personal life, it looks like there may be someone special in your life (or coming shortly), and you will fall head over heels in love with this person. Be careful not to rush things along and make sure you find out everything you need to know about this romantic significant other as you tend to be a bit vulnerable now. Your mind is also segmented now and you seem to be worrying about too many things and what could go wrong.
PISCES – February 18 – March 19
Make the conscious effort to educate yourself until you feel better about yourself and your knowledge. If you start to make plans to travel abroad, you will be meeting many new people in foreign countries who will most likely be your good friends for a long time to come. It would be a great idea to volunteer to have a foreign exchange student as well, if you have the time and means to do it. You are very sensitive; however, now it seems as if you are holding your own and taking care of business. You are smarter, stronger, and more confident and feel as if you can accomplish anything that is put before you. Luck is also on your side this month, so you want to start or finish as many projects as you can so that the luck will be there with you throughout the process. Many of your opinions and thoughts change and you tend to be more serious about the things you believe in. You study many more subjects and you want to learn everything you can about so many things. If you have a favorite topic or hobby that you would like to learn more about, this is the time to do it!
