You know, everywhere I go I hear people making things complicated. I, too, have a tendency to make things seem more complicated than they have to be. It's really time we begin to simplify our lives. Random situations still come out of the blue and catch us off-guard, but our daily lives do not need to be so stressful.

I have just left an emotionally abusive husband and moved to another part of the country. I lived here for more than a decade and left when I hit a financial bind. Now that I'm back, I wonder why I ever left. I have friends, right now, who are suddenly finding themselves homeless, or also in abusive relationships, or who make excuses for not finding time for themselves. People say to me, 'How do you just pick up and move like that?' I even have a two-year old at this point. I tell everyone, and have always told people, it's really as easy as getting in the car and driving. You pack your stuff, get in the car with a map, and drive. It does NOT need to be more complicated than that. So many people are caught up in the what-ifs and the how-tos that they are afraid to ever make a move.

The same goes for making time for yourself. People have all these excuses. Kids. Money. Work. That's a bunch of BS. Your kids nap, right? You have a free park or a backyard, right? You have a lunch break, right? What is it that we are really afraid of? Are we afraid of what others might think if we took 5 minutes to hang upside down from the branch of a tree? Are we afraid if we disappear down the trail behind our house for 5 minutes that our worlds might crumble around us and become so broken we would never be able to repair all the damage? What is it? Why can't you take a break from the world and refresh? Why can't you get in the car and move to a neighborhood or a state or a country where you've always wanted to live? Why can't you get a different job? Why can't you call and disconnect your cable and use that $80 a month for something more meaningful?

Be honest. Get out some paper and write down reasons until you get to the meat of what's holding you back. The beginning of your list will be all the fluff responses that you give yourself and your friends for not doing what it is that really flips up your skirt. Once you run out of those, you'll get to reasons that might be a little more painful or seem 'stupid' to you. Write them anyway. The more you write, the closer you'll get to the REAL reason why you're not making plans right now for a 1 hour break from your family, or a 3000 mile trip to the other side of the country, or to setup the art studio in the attic where you've always wanted to paint a picture or write a best selling novel. What the HELL is holding you back?

Figure it out and then post me a comment. I'd love to know that my rants are actually helping someone out there.

BTW, your Zany Zodiacs horoscopes for March 29th to April 4th will be posted before midday tomorrow. Thanks for all your support and please send all your friends to

Zany Zodiacs Free Weekly Horoscopes 3/8/09 - 3/14/09

Zany Zodiacs for this week have been posted. Check out the official Zany Zodiacs website.

Lots of energy surrounding success and positive thinking this week. These go hand in hand, as you may have guessed. Success is always there for the taking but we get so wrapped up in the what if's and the how to's, and not even to mention the stresses of daily life that bog us down. It's so easy to let opportunities pass right before our eyes. And opportunities don't always have something to do with money or personal success. Sometimes we miss opportunities to spend time with our children, opportunities to make others smile, or even opportunities to take a moment just to be with ourselves.

As always, it may benefit you to read through all of the Zany Zodiacs. The weekly energy is a combination of specifics geared toward each sign, but generally holds lessons for us all. If you'd like to support Zany Zodiacs free weekly horoscopes, so that we can reach many, many more people, please use the bookmark function in the top left of the website. Here you can submit our page to Digg, Facebook, Reddit and tons of others. Also, if you are a Twitter user, follow me here, and please tweet your friends about Zany Zodiacs. Thanks so much for all your support. (Still tryin' to reach Oprah!!)

Free Weekly Horoscopes for March 1st to 7th, 2009

Zany Zodiacs Free Weekly horoscopes have been updated. This week is interesting. A lot of energy surrounds success and opportunity. If you're in the middle of it right now, good for you! So many people are having financial and relationship struggles right now and if you can see past that stuff and spot a good opportunity when you see one, more power to you.

On the other side of that coin, if you're so caught up in your own struggle and feeling depressed, guilty, resentful or you've absolutely lost hope, now is the best time to find clarity and redirect your focus. Be honest with yourself and decide that feeling depressed and caught up is certainly not changing any of your circumstances so what have you got to lose? Begin to change your outlook and slowly find small positive points to whatever is happening in your life. If you really give this some effort, you will begin to see immediate results in the way you feel, therefore bringing more good, positive energy to your life. This really does work. It may be over-commercialized right now, but the concept is most definitely real.

Please take a look at your horoscopes and do tell all your friends through Twitter, Facebook, Digg, etc. (There's a button there to quickly bookmark to just about anywhere) I wouldn't mind at all if Oprah found out about Zany Zodiacs and decided that I need some assistance with branding!
