Heavenly Round-Up: Dreaming of a different kind of Independence Day? You're tied with the myriad gossamer threads of mutual obligation and unique responsibility. It's put-up-or-shut-up time. Watch what you say, and how and to whom. Walk your talk without exception. Get ready to dedicate yourself to building the chrysalis in which to contain the awesome force of your profound self-transformation. Choose your allies with more care than you buy your shoes or watch TV, and your reward will match your efforts.

Aries: Sing a song of sixpence, you feel as though you've been baked -- but you're not sure if it's the witch's oven or the strong sun that's gotten you so fried and crispy. Chill out and try to relax. If you're still having trouble sleeping, it might be time for massage or acupuncture.

Taurus: You're in a groove you can only maintain if you concentrate and follow all the best practices currently at your disposal. It's lovely to ride the unicycle on the high-wire whilst juggling torches, but there's not a lot of margin for error. Stay grounded in neutrals.

Gemini: You've got what it takes, but you're never done with the testing that proves it. This cycle has a limit, and you're within range of the finish line. Pace yourself and you may make a personal best out of this last leg of the endurance race. Measure twice in order to cut once.

Cancer: You've been brooding again. And brooding. And brooding. Funnily enough, nothing's changed for all the time you've spent. It's time to crawl out of your shell and do something about your issues. You have the resources, the skills and the ineffable timing to solve this.

Leo: Sensitivity wars with sensibility. You know how to be practical and collected and super-functional. And you'd pretty much rather be having a four star tantrum in the corner until everyone agrees to give you your way. Props to those of you with the courage to be adult.

Virgo: Get rested. Take your vitamins. Meditate while you commute. You're going to need every edge you can develop to make your way through this next round of obstacles and challenges. At the same time, you've never been better fitted to the task at hand. Celebrate.

Libra: Whoops! Did it again? Well, you can't be blamed for falling down -- lots of people do, and for such a wide range of reasons that there's really no point in blaming you, conditions, or even the whole impersonal universe. Pick yourself up, pull up your socks and get on with it.

Scorpio: It's not everybody who can be nostalgic for the present. You've got it like that, yes indeed. But you might wish to consider the extraordinary potential in simply living in the moment and calling it good. You have the force of character and will necessary. Apply them.

Sagittarius: You can run, but you can't hide. You've made random choices, masquerading as trust in the eternal. Having plowed and sown the field, you can see that it is time to reap it. Gather up your crew and make a festival of the occasion. Spin straw into gold on Tuesday.

Capricorn: Labor is your lot, and you're proud of your dedication and accomplishments. But you have served others first for long enough. Head out on retreat, even if that means only going within, and find the source of your future vocational pride. It's time to shift paradigms.

Aquarius: It used to be simpler. There used to be black and white and no in between. Now you're looking at so much grey you might be standing in a London fog. Is it imperative that you resolve everything instantly? Some things do better to sit and ferment a while. Release.

Pisces: You've looked forward to now for so long, that you can't help being a little let down with the mere reality. Is it in your best interests to hold on to that utopian vision? Could you get farther by adapting to how you really feel about what has finally begun to happen? Om.
