Here's the weekly astrological forecast for June 25 - July 2, 2008. What's your sign, baby? They're all here...

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Welcome to Part Two of your outlook for the second half of 2008, Aries. We're checking up on how you're progressing with the challenges you were given near the end of last year. I'm hoping that by now you're well on your way toward leaving your amateur or rookie status behind for good. I trust that you have had a vision of exactly what you need to do in order to boost your level of professionalism, and that you have taken aggressive steps to carry out that vision. If for some bizarre reason you have not yet begun this glorious work, jumpstart yourself immediately. Fate will conspire dramatically on your behalf if you do. Now here's a tip on how to make sure that your inner warrior is operating at peak efficiency: Assume there's always more you can do to raise your standards and aspire to a higher grade of excellence.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Welcome to Part Two of your outlook for the second half of 2008, Taurus. We're checking up on how you're progressing with the challenges you were given near the end of last year. One of the tasks at the top of your to-do list, I hope, has been the expansion of your worldview. Whether it occurs by traveling to exotic places, hanging out with broad-minded lovers of life, or exposing yourself to intriguing ideas that activate your deep thoughts, you need to seek out breathtaking views of the big picture. Here are two tips about how to ensure that your inner pioneer is always itchy to investigate the unknown: 1. Shed inhibitions that serve no constructive purpose. 2. Declare your independence from trivial details.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You entered the Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n' Roll phase of your long-term cycle late last year, and you'll be in that zone until January of 2009. That means you have been and will continue to be tempted with triple-intense opportunities to explore the frontiers of passion, find out about alternative modes of consciousness, and expand your capacity for lyrical release. So how is that working for you? Are you taking maximum advantage of all the life-changing experiments these adventures offer without being turned inside-out by the emotional risks they entail? Everything depends on your skill in using unruly gifts.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Welcome to Part Two of your outlook for the second half of 2008, Cancerian. We're checking up on how well you're progressing with the challenges you were given near the end of last year. Here's one of the most important things I hope you're doing: getting clear about which of the influences in your life encourage you toward mediocrity, and which influences, on the other hand, nudge you in the direction of mastery. There's a second crucial lesson that's related to the first: getting clear about which people have low expectations and distorted images of you, and which people, on the other hand, want the best for you and see you for who you really are.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Welcome to Part Two of your outlook for the second half of 2008, Leo. We're checking up on how you're progressing with the challenges you were given near the end of last year. As I suspect you've guessed by now, there's one potential accomplishment that's more important than all the others. If you can pull it off, it'll change your life forever. I'm talking about the determination to take full responsibility for your own happiness. How? By studying in exquisite detail all the things you need to feel great, and taking aggressive steps to make sure they happen consistently.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Welcome to Part Two of your outlook for the second half of 2008, Virgo. We're checking up on how you're progressing with the challenges you were given near the end of last year. I trust that by now you're aware that you have far more access to your creative powers than you've ever had before. If for some reason you have not yet taken advantage of this blessing, please drop everything and get to work tapping into the mother lode. This should be the year your self-expression reaches unprecedented levels of vividness and originality.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Welcome to Part Two of your outlook for the second half of 2008, Libra. We're checking up on how you're progressing with the challenges you were given near the end of last year. I trust that by now you have begun to make major renovations in the foundations of your world. I hope you have been carrying out brave changes that will anchor and stabilize your efforts for years to come. By January 1, 2009, I expect that you will be standing in your place of power and fighting for your dreams with more suppleness and stamina than you've ever summoned.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Welcome to Part Two of your outlook for the second half of 2008. We're checking up on how you're progressing with the challenges you were given near the end of last year. I hope by now you've realized that you have unprecedented opportunities to forge combinations that have never before been possible. Opposites you'd always assumed would never attract should now be headed toward unification. Elements of your life you've long feared were irreconcilable have been showing signs of finding common ground, and may even be primed to achieve a delicious synergy. Keep refining your primal urge to merge, Scorpio!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Welcome to Part Two of your outlook for the second half of 2008, Sagittarius. We're checking up on how you're progressing with the challenges you were given near the end of last year. I trust that by now you're experiencing the joys of ever-growing self-discipline. I hope you're positively gleeful with your enhanced capacity to master details and be creatively organized. This is the year, I predict, that you will learn to be a visionary planner without losing any of your inspiring spontaneity.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Welcome to Part Two of your outlook for the second half of 2008, Capricorn. How have you been progressing with the challenges you were given near the end of last year? I trust that you've been hungry for new ideas, fresh approaches and novel adventures. And I hope that this has resulted in you receiving more invitations, dares and temptations than you've ever had. If what I just said describes your current state of affairs, I extend my hearty congratulations and remind you that you're only halfway through this awakening process. If what I said doesn't fit your experience, get busy!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Welcome to Part Two of your outlook for the second half of 2008, Aquarius. We're checking up on how you're progressing with the challenges you were given near the end of last year. I'm hoping that six months from now, you'll look back and make the following declaration: "This is the hardest I've ever worked to be free. Liberation always came pretty easily to me before, but this year I had to find new ways complicated, interesting, highly advanced ways to carve out the space to live the life I want. I'm glad I was challenged so deeply. It has made me a genius of emancipation."

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Welcome to Part Two of your outlook for the second half of 2008, Pisces. I'm hoping that six months from now, you'll look back and make the following declaration: "This year I was a real artist in the way I lived my life. Everything I did was like working on a beautiful masterpiece. I had a sixth sense about when to shut up and when to speak out, when to pull back and when to push on, when to recharge and when to ripen. Whenever my efforts were ready to climax, I brought them to a climax and moved on to the next adventure. So here's the big question: What can I do to keep cultivating this adroit and graceful approach to being alive?"
